Witches & Fish & Kreskin & Long

Posted by admin On September - 18 - 2013

I just had the most remarkable experience of reading and viewing your book on the internet...

I must tell you that this is the first time I  have ever read a graphic novel and it will remain memorable that the novel was yours. A most intriguing mystical story and I have to tell your artistry is absolutely brilliant. There were a number of scenes that I found my self moving back over perhaps 4 or 5 times. I compliment you on your gift. I am really impressed with the wide range of fiction and non-fiction that you have offered in your career. From the notes at the bottom I see that you have also illustrated amongst other works such as Edgar Alan Poe's  The Mask of The Red Death and The Raven. I will be looking  at your rendition of those books shortly.

I wish you continued success in your work.

ESPecially,

Kreskin

David Frost Was a Newsman With a Flair For Show Business

Posted by admin On September - 4 - 2013

In Memory of David Frost

 Everyone who worked with David Frost found his image stamped on one’s memory forever. The passing  of this British television journalist just a few days ago brings to memory the times that I appeared on his television show years ago when it was recorded in NYC. He was remarkable in that we would be in the studio and the taping of the show would be delayed sometimes thirty or forty minutes. As it turned out that he had just flown in from London and was discussing with the staff who the guests were. I found it all the more remarkable and refreshing that Frost was able to understand and have a clear concept to share with his viewers his take on the person he was interviewing or showcasing. And boy, did I showcase with Frost. In one program in which groups of people were sitting around card tables with their hands on the tables and Frost and I talked about séances which of course were the rage in London for many decades. Lo and behold the card tables started dancing all over the place, wobbling here and there and at times tipping over. Frost covered it like he was covering a news event.

How I shall miss him.

My deepest condolences to his family.

ESPecially,

Strange And Exciting New John Romero Book

Posted by admin On August - 27 - 2013
  July 29, 2013      Review of John Romero Book – The Eisenhower Enigma
 

John,

              I just read your new novel The Eisenhower Enigma and I wanted to get to my commentary as soon as possible so I could share the enthusiasm I have for your book. I really mean what I say in my commentary. Feel free to use it in any way as I am so proud of your writing this piece and wish you much success.

All my best thoughts my friend.

Especially,

Kreskin

 

Yours Truly has known John Romero for some 40 years and never suspected what was in store for me when I picked up this evening a new book by him titled.. The Eisenhower Enigma. First of all the book is a novel and little did I realize that somewhere stored in the mind of one of the outstanding authorities on the gaming  industry was resting a piece of fiction that left me surprised, delighted and eager to share it with one and all. The Eisenhower Enigma is an exciting science fiction novel that reaches a highly moving climax that yes..could bring tears to your eyes. You are going to find that John Romero has set the story during a period of history when the public was being more and more aware of mysterious happenings that today we describe as UFO phenomena. You are  going to find entering  this novel real life characters that become an integral part of the story. Yes, people like Dr. J.B. Rhine who created the term “extrasensory perception,” to Walter Winchell who in the forties and fifties was one of the highest rated and most listened to radio commentators as well as having an extraordinarily successful and powerful show business newspaper column. This is a dynamic period in US history and you will find as well the influences of Winston Churchill, Richard Nixon, and Secretary of State James Forrestal and on and on the figures continue all playing pivotal roles in this story.  I can’t overlook someone who would seem to be as historically real as the people I’ve mentioned, a unique character by the name of Oracle Alpha who is a psychic that plays a pivotal role in the novel.  As is historically true and is spotlighted in his novel the US Government is playing a major role in the investigation. UFO aficionados will be pleased on how accurately Romero has blended fact with fiction.

 I am going to warn you my dear reader, you may not be able to put down until you finish it in one sitting. To those in the area of movie making, let me alert you that the climax is powerful, riveting and deeply moving. Wow, this would make a powerful motion picture. 

You do not have to read my thought to know that I am deeply excited about The Eisenhower Enigma and the enthusiasm that I want to share with all of you.

Kreskin’s Heart is in Australia

Posted by admin On August - 26 - 2013
    August 21, 2013 The Honorable Kevin Rudd Prime Minister of Australia PO Box 476 Morningside, QLD  4170   Dear Prime Minister Rudd,                 Please understand as a US citizen that my heart goes out to the family of Christopher Lane of Melbourne and everyone of your wonderful nation on the tragic and senseless loss of one of your citizens. Clearly he was a fine young man. I am deeply moved. I feel a close bond with your people because of the wonderful treatment I was given during my professional performances in your country. From the first day I arrived at Sydney Airport and the wonderful treatment your press gave me I was given in the weeks to follow given the utmost care and attention by your people.                 With this tragic incident in mind I can fully understand former Prime Minister Tim Fisher’s advice that tourists should think twice about going to the USA. If I were living in Australia or any other civilized country of the world I would express the same feelings. But let me explain to you that while your country is clearly safer thanks to your recent gun legislation, it is still quite feasible to enjoy the people and the features that our country has to offer and to do so with relative safety. I have advised people, and thousands in my country are following such, namely to no longer jog or stroll at night, and if during the day not alone. It isn’t that we have a higher percentage of violent people than in the past … that’s bunk… we have more guns. I have advised joggers to exercise indoors.  Your collegiate son Christopher Lane is not alone in the disaster that took place. Every single day in this country as your representatives have stated there are scores and scores of innocent individuals shot to death or injured by gunfire. At another time in our country’s history there would have been Congressional hearings day after day, week after week until the final solution was resolved. Our politicians are in a quagmire of pressures. Understand that there are thousands upon thousands of lobbyists and special interest groups in our Capital that are controlling the minds of representatives who proclaim their interest in public welfare.  Their wisdom is limited and stifled by special money interest pressures.  It would be common sense to anyone that increasing the severity of punishment of those who are found guilty of gun violence would be a worthless deterrent when we consider the hundreds of senseless killings including these three thugs who weren’t concerned about any penalties, just having a good time killing an innocent young man.         Again my heart and prayers go out to you and your nation. We all love Australia and welcome seeing you folks. Especially,         Kreskin The Amazing Kreskin TAK/caf  

Cat Euthanized By Mistake

Vet Euthanizes Family Cat By

Kreskin… READ MY THOUGHTS!!!  Is this a malpractice issue? Having championed animal rights for decades and having at this time 3 cats, one of whom bears a resemblance to Shimmy the cat that was brought to a veterinarian’s office in Sand Lake MI and was euthanized by MISTAKE!!!! My outrage is, how can an animal be killed by mistake???  Wouldn’t any veterinarian who is handed a healthy looking animal question killing it even if the owner wanted such to be done?? Where the Hell is a medical person’s purported love and respect for an animal’s life?  I for one would never again entrust the life of my pets to someone who “accidentally killed” someone’s beloved pet. 

IT’S A GOOD THING HE CANNOT READ MY MIND!

The Comic Side of Kreskin...

A Breath Of Fresh Air And A True American Spirit

Posted by admin On July - 22 - 2013
 Kreskin & Steve Woods

I know Steve Woods extremely well..

    Certainly I should since he worked for me some years ago as my Road Manager and toured with me. He is a remarkable man and I can understand his great success in his home state of Maine.  If I were teaching US Government I would invite my students to study his outlook and his hopes as a responsible member of the state. Some of his remarks in his recent article that appeared in July 18th ‘s edition of Portland Press Herald  titled…Maine Voices Campaign Coverage… could be applied to a larger area than the state of Maine and certainly would be worthy of reflecting our national political scenarios. 

What sage advice he gives when he suggests that every single Mainer would be wise to invest 5 minutes and visit the database that lists in detail contributions made to candidates. Wow, wouldn’t that be even more revealing if people could possibly do the same with our national representatives. It would be quite a revelation, and I think for many rather shocking, since as he points out aside from the personal contributions in support of a campaign, a majority of donations come from “companies, consultants, political allies..etc.”  as he goes on to say “all paying in some manner a politician tax” in the hope of receiving…  One can only speculate what each expects to receive in return for the payment they have administrated the candidate.

I wonder if many political students or those studying government could believe the fact that Steve Woods is a candidate and I can see in Maine the only candidate who has refused campaign contributions. As he says I am “in favor of contributing $50,000 of my own money to my gubernatorial campaign.” He goes on to state that the total monies he is contributing is more than of all that of the other candidates combined.  Wow, what does that say about this man? Certainly it raises him far and above and has him stand out as I think a singularly remarkable candidate who points out that he doesn’t know “66” attorneys in Maine and Washington who want to become friends with me by making sizable donations. 

I think that the actions and public statements of Steve Woods warrant the attention of every Maine voter, but also professors in universities and newsmen who are critically examining the state of government affairs and their candidates.

With all due respect.
