Regis…. Farewell to a Giant

Posted by kreskin On November - 13 - 2011

Regis…. Farewell to a Giant

I am honored to have received the invitation from ABC Television to attend Regis Philbin’s final appearance on Friday, November 18th. It is a very difficult moment in my life to reflect upon. I wonder if anyone has had the length of time working with Regis that yours truly has, which I look upon with pride. I’ve done 104 shows with him, beginning way back, when opposite Johnny Carson, the Joey Bishop Show was being seen on ABC Television with a young Regis Philbin as his announcer.

I’m being asked who I feel will replace Regis? I can answer it best in this way…he’s one of the very few people in show business who is remarkably the same off camera as he is on.

As far as who will replace Regis…I predict… no one will, nor can anyone.

There will be people put in the same time slot, and on a show with a similar title, but you cannot replace a man who over 50 years has proved to be literally one of a kind.

I am so pleased that You Tube has singled out the memorable Regis Philbin Halloween Show and the frightening scenario that I created with volunteers from his audience.

Ingrid Pitt: Beyond the Forest

Ingrid Pitt: Beyond the Forest

I want to share with you a powerful video experience. The fact that it only consumes about one minute makes it all the more remarkable, when you consider that it represents thousands of lives and traumatic months, days, and years that they experience. Jud Newborn narratesIngrid Pitt: Beyond the Forest eloquently. It’s remarkable how even a scene in which you’re looking over the trees and grounds has a movement that is sensitive and truly supports the message. This is the commentary I wrote to Jud Newborn:

I must tell you that I was deeply moved by the animated short Ingrid Pitt: Beyond the Forest. One of the great skills in communication, whether it be written or visual, is to be able to transmit a powerful message in a few words or a brief amount of time. This is one of the finest representations of such. It is brilliant. It is truly heart wrenching, all the more so because of the sensitivity communicated through a youngster’s cartoons. That to me is a stroke of genius. I must tell you that to climax it with the voice and words of Winston Churchill says it all. This to me is an example that needs to be shed to the free world today, to parents and teachers on how important it is to study and reflect upon history. It is deplorable and a scathing criticism on our educational system and our political figures and leaders that they have growingly tended to ignore, if not forget, history. I can’t compliment you enough on these two moving and brilliant pieces.

Modesto JC (Kreskin Mention)

Posted by kreskin On October - 3 - 2011

The karma gods must have honored the Modesto Junior College Pirates and their cornerback from Gilroy who pilfered the Gavilan Rams … from Gilroy.

His name is Kris Dipko, a freshman safety forced to man a new position. From there, he intercepted three passes before halftime Saturday night when the moon was in the seventh house and Jupiter aligned with Mars.

While Dipko’s teammates pounded his back in celebration, the Pirates raced to a 47-0 lead at the half and moonwalked to a 60-20 victory at MJC Stadium. Anyone who could have predicted this scenario gets two tickets to an Amazing Kreskin show.

MIDNIGHT SNACK by Michael McCarty

Posted by kreskin On September - 12 - 2011

Horror story writer Michael McCarty has done it again. This time he has released a satirical new novel dealing with vampires titled appropriately Midnight Snack. And don’t you know, one of the pivotal figures in the story is The Amazing Kreskin. Indeed, aside from attempting to protect and warn people of the impending dangers surrounding vampirism, Kreskin is ordained by the Gothic Vampire Church to marry a couple.

The irony of the wedding scenario is that some years ago, a prominent photographer, whose dad was a noted author in the area of psychology and hypnosis, approached and convinced Kreskin to perform his wedding ceremony. Kreskin was given special permission so that inevitably he was able to legitimately and legally marry the photographer and his fiancé.

Midnight Snack is available on the following website:

Furry Kreskins? Do cats and dogs possess ESP?

Posted by kreskin On September - 9 - 2011
Furry Kreskins? Do cats and dogs possess ESP? -JO EDWARDS Jos Doggy Talk Dear Jo: I once read an article about our cuts and dogs possessing ESP, better known as extra sensory perception. I have never tried any experiments but I have noticed that our cat named Peakaboo seems to be able to read my mind at times. Just wondering what you think about the subject. Dear reader: Even though I have never run an experiment on my own, plenty of research clinics have. To their amazement cats and dogs really do know things, but there is little proof because ESP is hard to prove. Yet, it is hard to disprove it either, as the following amazing stories are real life events: Cats and dogs have been videotaped to study their behavior while their owners have driven far away from home, then take a taxi back home to discard the notion that the animals could recognize the sound ofthe owner’s car. The owners would also arrive home at different times ofthe day, not to adhering to a specific routine. While the owners were gone the cats and dogs spent very little time at the windows, but once the owners would start toward home the animals would sit at the windows waiting for the owner’s arrival every time. In this same experiment, they noticed that cats seem to have special powers in knowing when their owners were calling on the phone even before the phone was answered. Cats came out ahead of dogs on this one. Researchers believe, one way or another, this all has to do with “morph fields,” which has to do with self-organizing systems that some animals possess such as birds and fish; such as, animals that return to their birthplace to mate and reproduce. Have you ever heard of how cats can find their way back home? This seems to be how they do it. When I first got married, my new husband and I moved three miles from my family’s home. Of course I took my cat to my new home. One afternoon I allowed my cat to go outside. He never stopped until two days later he showed back up at my family’s homo. I could not believe it. Then six months ago we had an individual in our neighbor that was hauling off every cat that came into his yard be¬ cause he did not like cats. He happened to get one of my neighbor’s cats and to our amazement, that cat found his way back home. It took him six months, and he was pure muscle, but it was him and he will not leave his owner’s side for one minute at this writing. If animals could talk, I would love to hear that cat’s story. But dogs, bless their hearts, seem to have lost this ability during their process of becoming domesticated, or have they? . Then one for the dogs side; they have always been used for their weather predictions, along with horses and cows. And, dogs have become front page news in their ability of search ” and rescue during all of our disasters in the last few years. The researchers know this is not only done by their hearing and sense of smell, but by a sense of knowing. Cats were also in stories for predicting the latest earthquakes. Is this luck or do our pets really have ESP? An scientists continue their research, we learn more ofthe special powers our sweet pets possess and the strength of our bonds with them. I feel our pets could tell us more if we would just take the time to listen and watch instead of doing all ofthe teaching we seem to be so obsessed with. It seems they are smarter that we know. I would be delighted to hear some of your pets amazing stories, if you care to share them with us. You can send them to josdoggytalk@hotmail.co m and we will have this discussion again with a little bit more perception. Printing imperfections present during scanning

David Letterman

Posted by kreskin On August - 23 - 2011
I just want everyone to know that I felt it important to watch David Letterman, especially last night August 22, 2011. He was coming back from a vacation. During the time he was off, it was publicized that a serious terrorist threat was issued against him because of some humorous remarks he made not long ago. Yours truly has never been more proud of an entertainer. Those of you who saw the hour must have marveled along with me at the class, professionalism, and courage with which he dealt with the threat, all replete with great humor. To my way of thinking, he has risen in this communication business with greater stature than ever before. Talk about a true American who refuses to let himself be intimidated.
