CINEMASSACRES

Posted by admin On July - 21 - 2010
In David Byron’s fifth non-fiction book, CINEMASSACRES, he has assembled a vast array of special guests from the TV, film, and fiction industries, some that knew Forrest J. Ackerman personally, some who just wish to pay homage to the man fondly known as “Uncle Forry”, and some who had never met Forry but had always been fans of his work. Also known as “Mr. SciFi”, Forrest J. Ackerman made a literary, historical breakthrough for fans of scifi and horror when he released the first issue of Famous Monsters of Filmland in February of 1958. The magazine’s success required a second printing to fill the public demand. Included in the “Special Guest Interviews” is a 15 page interview with The Amazing Kreskin. Forrest Ackerman was the man who gave Kreskin two cover stories in Famous Monsters of Filmland magazine back in 1977. To order book:

Kreskin to the Rescue

Len Berman - Emmy Award winning sportscaster and New York Times Bestselling Author Posted: July 6, 2010 - The Huffington Post Top 5 Sports Stories 5. Mental Case It's Kreskin to the rescue. The 75-year mentalist wants to help the Pittsburgh Pirates. Why not? The organization is in the throes of a 17-year losing streak. They even fired, and then brought back, one of their racing pierogis because he wrote some negative things about the team on Facebook. Kreskin's first move would be to send the manager and general manager on a two year vacation to Tibet. Kreskin would then use the power of suggestion to get the players to perform better. Kreskin offered his services to the Mets in 2007, but they turned him down. The Mets then famously collapsed in September. I'm thinking the Pirates should take this guy seriously.want to keep it as September 4, it is fine with me.

Mentalist: I can make The Pittsburgh Pirates win

Posted by admin On July - 2 - 2010
The hapless Pittsburgh Pirates have sunk so low in the standings that The Amazing Kreskin is offering his services to bail them out -- for an undisclosed fee. The mentalist, best known for his spots on late-night TV shows and a good run of picking winners of Super Bowls, Academy Awards and elections, thinks the Buccos not only will make this their 18th consecutive losing season, but will continue to stay below .500 for another two years. In relief, The Amazing Kreskin wants the ball, even if it's crystal. The Pirates didn't return messages to see if they would give it to him.

Kreskin on Joey Reynolds’ Last Two Shows

Posted by admin On March - 29 - 2010
Regarding Joey Reynolds leaving WOR Joey Reynolds is one of the greatest living American radio talk show hosts. I have worked with all the great late-night radio hosts, Joe Franklin, Long John Nebel, Barry Farber, John Wingate. I am witness to the amazing variety of guests from all walks of life and the remarkable live music entertainment content, Reynolds always has brought to the show. What is almost as singularly remarkable is that in the hundreds of hours I spent with Joey on the air, I’ve rarely seen him using a telephone. The man has an encyclopedic mind for almost every area of modern culture and its people. I predict he will be picked up by another broadcast station with an even better time slot!
