ON THE EVE OF 9/11

911
A HANDFUL OF EVENTS IN LIFE CONNECT US ALL. NEITHER SPECIFICALLY GOOD OR BAD, JUST CLASSIFIED AS EARTH-SHATTERING. NEVER TO BE FORGOTTEN. INDELIBLE IN EACH OF OUR INDIVIDUAL MEMORY BANKS.

ON THE GOOD SIDE, THERE WAS THE BEATLES COMING TO AMERICA AND THEIR APPEARANCE ON THE ED SULLIVAN SHOW. NEIL ARMSTRONG'S FIRST STEP ON THE MOON. MAYBE A FEW SPORTING EVENTS. A HANDFUL OF TV SHOWS PERHAPS. HMMMM.....MAYBE FEWER GOOD ONES THAN I HAD AT FIRST IMAGINED.

ISN'T IT ODD HOW THE BAD ONES SEEM TO OUTNUMBER THE GOOD?

I WAS SIX WHEN PRESIDENT JOHN F. KENNEDY WAS SHOT. I RECALL WALKING HOME FROM MY FIRST GRADE CLASS. WHEN I ARRIVED HOME I SAW MY MOTHER SITTING ON THE COUCH, WEEPING, HUGE SOBBING TEARS. I HAVE NEVER SEEN A WOMAN - OR ANYONE - EVER CRY LIKE MY MOM THAT DAY. I REMEMBER SEEING OUR SCHOOL FLAG HANGING AT HALF-MAST. THE DEATHS OF DR. KING AND ROBERT KENNEDY HAD NO REAL IMPACT ON MY INNOCENT, 13-YEAR-OLD MIND IN '68. HA! A LARK! MAYBE THERE'LL BE NO SCHOOL TODAY. IGNORANCE IS, INDEED, BLISS. MUCH DIFFERENTLY, THE DEATH OF JOHN LENNON IN 1980 HAD A DEEP AND PROFOUND EFFECT. I WAS A HUGE BEATLES FAN, LENNON MY SUPREME HERO. I WAS ABSOLUTELY SHELL-SHOCKED. SUCH A SMALL, PATHETIC MAN COULD ACTUALLY TAKE AWAY THE LIFE OF THIS GIANT - THE GREATEST ARTIST OF THE 20TH CENTURY.

LITTLE DID ANY OF US IMAGINE THE COLLECTIVE IMPACT OF 9/11, 13 YEARS AGO. COULD ANY OF US IMAGINE - IN OUR WILDEST DREAMS (NIGHTMARES) - HOW MANY HUMAN DEATHS WOULD HAVE OCCURRED ON AND AFTER THAT NOTORIOUS DAY? TOO HORRIBLE TO CALCULATE.

THE EVIL WE SEE ON OUR PLANET IN ITS WAKE - TOO HORRIFIC TO CONFRONT, MUCH LESS UNDERSTAND. AS WE LOOK AT THE CURRENT SITUATION IN THE MIDDLE EAST, I IMAGINE WE MUST FEEL LIKE AMERICANS IN THE 30'S AND '40'S AS THEY WATCHED THE NEWSREELS OF THE NAZIS GOOSE-STEPPING AND STORM-TROOPING. CHILLING. CREEPY. EVIL ON SUCH A GRAND SCALE ONE FEELS A TOTAL EFFECT.

WHAT CAUSES HUMAN HATE TO EXIST HAS BEEN SURMISED AND DEBATED BY THE GREATEST PHILOSOPHERS SINCE TIME IMMEMORIAL. ALL TOO OFTEN IN HUMAN HISTORY, THE EVIL TRUMPS THE GOOD.

I THINK WE ALL REALIZE THAT IF IT DOES TRIUMPH AGAIN, THERE MAY BE NO REAL TOMORROW FOR ANY DECENT PEOPLE.

I SEND MY LOVE TO ALL MY WONDERFUL FRIENDS.

MAY THE BETTER ANGELS OF OUR COLLECTIVE NATURE AS HUMAN BEINGS TRIUMPH.

MAY WE ALL LIVE TO SEE AND EXPERIENCE A BRIGHTER DAY!

MY REUNION WITH OLIVIA NEWTON-JOHN

ONJ-ED-14
(PHOTO COURTESY OF OLIVIA NEWTON-JOHN)

ON THURSDAY NIGHT, WE WENT TO SEE OLIVIA NEWTON-JOHN AT THE FLAMINGO.

AS OLIVIA CAME OUT, SHE WAVED DAINTILY AT AT A FEW PEOPLE. THEN SHE SAW ME AT MY TABLE AND GAVE ME A BIG WAVE. I WAS DEEPLY TOUCHED. AT FIRST, I ACTUALLY WASN'T SURE THAT WAVE WAS FOR ME. (BUT IT WAS!!!)

OLIVIA SANG MANY OF HER HIT SONGS, THEN SHE GOT TO THE GREASE SONGS. THEN SHE SAID:

I WANT TO INTRODUCE ONE OF MY CO-STARS IN GREASE WHO IS HERE IN THE AUDIENCE: EDDIE DEEZEN, WHO PLAYED EUGENE.

I STOOD UP AND WAVED. SHE CALLED ME UP ON STAGE.

I RAN UP AND HUGGED OLIVIA AND GAVE HER A KISS ON THE CHEEK. I SAID:

YOU'RE STILL BEAUTIFUL.

(WHICH WAS VERY TRUE).

WE HUGGED AND I WENT BACK TO MY SEAT. OLIVIA SAID:

WE HAD FUN, DIDN'T WE?

TO ME. WE GOT GREAT CHEERS FROM THE PACKED HOUSE. IT WAS A TRULY MAGICAL MOMENT.

MOM AND I GOT TO SAY HI TO OLIVIA IN HER DRESSING ROOM AND LATER AT THE MEET AND GREET.

THIS WAS DEFINITELY THE HIGHLIGHT OF MY ENTIRE TRIP. OLIVIA WAS LOVELY, KIND AND GRACIOUS. SHE CALLED ME OVER TO GET A PHOTO TOGETHER. SHE SAID:

COME HERE, EUGENE.

THEN SHE APOLOGIZED FOR CALLING ME MY CHARACTER'S NAME.

I LOVED OLIVIA 37 YEARS AGO WHEN WE FILMED "GREASE" AND I STILL LOVE HER VERY MUCH.

I AM HAPPY AND PROUD SUCH A WONDERFUL LADY IS A PART OF MY LIFE.

THE GREATEST LOOK I EVER GOT
FROM A WOMAN

Gilda

I WAS REMINDED OF THIS MOMENT FROM A POST I JUST SAW ON SOMEONE'S FACEBOOK PAGE. THIS IS ONE OF THOSE INDELIBLE, UNFORGETTABLE MOMENTS THAT WE ALL EXPERIENCE IN OUR LIVES.

I WAS AT THE PREMIERE PARTY FOR A MOVIE I WAS IN CALLED I WANNA HOLD YOUR HAND IN 1978. IT WAS AT THE PLAZA HOTEL, WHERE WE WERE STAYING. (WE WERE THERE ON A PROMOTIONAL TOUR FOR THE FILM). AT THIS PARTY, I MET AND GOT TO CHAT WITH JOHN BELUSHI AND DICK CAVETT. I WAS AWESTRUCK, AS I IDOLIZED BOTH OF THESE GUYS. BUT THE MOST UNFORGETTABLE MOMENT WAS A LOOK I SHARED WITH GILDA RADNER. I WAS JUST WALKING SOMEWHERE, AND I TURNED AND I SAW GILDA. WE STOPPED FOR A MOMENT AND LOOKED AT EACH OTHER, JUST LIKE TWO PEOPLE WHO ARE IN LOVE IN SOME CORNY B-MOVIE.

THE LOOK SHE GAVE ME WAS A COMBINATION OF WARMTH, COMPASSION, HUMOR, UNDERSTANDING, AFFINITY, FRIENDSHIP AND KINDNESS. I GUESS MOMENTS LIKE THIS ARE REALLY INDESCRIBABLE. THESE ARE "YOU HAD TO BE THERE" MOMENTS. I THINK THE LOOK TOOK ALL OF TEN SECONDS.

NO WORDS WERE EXCHANGED. NO WORDS WERE SPOKEN BY EITHER ONE OF US.

AND IN THAT BRIEF MOMENT, I UNDERSTOOD THAT THE REALLY GREAT MOMENTS IN OUR LIVES HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH TIME. TIME IS IRRELEVANT.

IN THAT MOMENT, I UNDERSTOOD WHY SO MANY LOVED GILDA RADNER SO MUCH.

REFLECTIONS ON A GREAT HONOR

TODAY I HAD ONE OF THE GREAT HONORS OF MY LIFE. I WAS INDUCTED INTO THE ALLEGANY HIGH SCHOOL HALL OF FAME IN MY OLD HOMETOWN OF CUMBERLAND, MD.

IF YOU EVER SAW ME IN HIGH SCHOOL, YOU WOULD REALIZE HOW INCREDIBLY IRONIC THIS IS. IF YOU WERE TO LINE UP EACH AND EVERY KID I WENT TO HIGH SCHOOL WITH, I MAY HAVE BEEN THE SINGLE WORST STUDENT IN MY ENTIRE CLASS OF 1975. BUT LIVES TAKE STRANGE TWISTS AND TURNS. THE VICISSITUDES OF MY OWN LIFE NEVER CEASE TO AMAZE ME.

I AM DEEPLY PROUD OF THIS GREAT HONOR AND I AM JUST AS PROUD TO HAVE GROWN UP IN CUMBERLAND.

A MESSAGE TO ALL OF MY FRIENDS ON MY 57TH BIRTHDAY:

57
WHAT A LONG, STRANGE TRIP IT'S BEEN!!!! (NICE START. PURE PLAGIARISM.)

I WANT TO THANK ALL OF YOU FOR YOUR VERY KIND AND THOUGHTFUL BIRTHDAY MESSAGES AND GIFTS TOO, FROM SEVERAL PEOPLE, WERE MORE THAN GENEROUS. I HAVE LEARNED MANY THINGS IN MY 57 (OMG!!!) YEARS. AMONG THEM IS THIS: FRIENDS ARE MORE VALUABLE THAN DIAMONDS AND GEMS. NOTHING IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN FRIENDSHIP IN THE LONG RUN OF LIFE. IT'S A VERY DARK, BLEAK, APPARENTLY MERCILESS UNIVERSE OUT THERE. FRIENDSHIP IS THE FIRE THAT LIGHTS UP THE DARKNESS.

I ONLY IT WERE POSSIBLE TO SEE EVERYONE AND THANK YOU PERSONALLY.

MUCH LOVE, YOUR FRIEND ALWAYS,

EDDIE

2013 CHRISTMAS MESSAGE TO ALL MY PALS



ISN'T IT FUNNY? I WAS BORN A JEW, RAISED A JEW AND AFTER ALL THESE YEARS, I'M STILL A JEW, BUT CHRISTMAS HAS ALWAYS BEEN MY FAVORITE DAY OF THE YEAR. WHY, YOU MAY ASK? (AND IF NOT, I'LL TELL YOU ANYWAY!)

I HAVE ALWAYS THOUGHT OF CHRISTMAS AS A YEARBOOK FOR ADULTS. REMEMBER IN SCHOOL? WE WERE ALL SO MEAN AND ROTTON TO EACH OTHER, PEER PRESSURE, CRUEL JOKES, ET AL. BUT THEN, AT THE END OF SCHOOL TERM, THE YEARBOOK COMES OUT AND WE ALL ASKED EACH OTHER TO SIGN. AND THEN IT WAS "TO THE COOLEST KID IN 8TH GRADE" OR "TO MY BEST FRIEND" OR "TO THE NICEST GUY I EVER MET". IT WAS KIND OF LIKE WE WERE PLAYING A CHILDISH GAME CALLED "BEING KIDS" AND THEN ALL AGREED TO A "TRUCE" AND WE REVEALED OUR TRUE FEELINGS FOR EACH OTHER. BUT HECK, WE'RE ADULTS NOW. WE DON'T PLAY SUCH PUERILE GAMES. OR DO WE? AND WE DON'T NEED A TRUCE. OR DO WE? HMMMM..... AND MAYBE THE "GAME" IS THE ILLUSION AND MAYBE THE "TRUCE" IS THE REALITY. WELL, ENOUGH OF MY PHILOSOPHICAL THEORIES. I WANT TO WISH EACH AND EVERY ONE OF YOU A VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS. MAY YOUR HOLIDAY BE BRIGHT AND FILLED WITH FUN, JOY AND LAUGHTER.

HAPPY THANKSGIVUKAH!

2013 THANKSGIVING MESSAGE
TO ALL MY FRIENDS AND PALS:

THANKSGIVING IS A DAY OF GREAT FOOD, OF FUN TIMES, OF FAMILY, OF FOOTBALL, BUT IT IS ALSO A DAY OF REFLECTION. AND AS I REFLECT ON THIS THANKSGIVING EVE, I WILL LET YOU IN ON A LITTLE SECRET I HAVE DISCOVERED AFTER 56 YEARS OF A VERY FULL AND CRAZY LIFE. FRIENDS, REAL FRIENDS, ARE THE MOST PRECIOUS COMMODITY IN THIS UNIVERSE. DIAMONDS, JEWELS, CASTLES AND CADILLACS ALL PALE IN COMPARISON. HOW MANY WEALTHY PEOPLE FEEL MISERABLE AND ALONE? MORE THAN YOU KNOW.

ENJOY THANKSGIVING AND HAVE A GREAT DAY TOMORROW!!!

MY 2012 CHRISTMAS MESSAGE
TO MY FRIENDS AND PALS

JK

I WAS SADDENED TODAY BY THE NEWS OF THE DEATH OF ACTOR JACK KLUGMAN. I HAD ONE ENCOUNTER WITH JACK, IT WAS ABOUT 25 OR 30 YEARS AGO. I WAS FILMING A PILOT AT UNIVERSAL, I FORGET WHICH ONE (I DID 9 PILOTS IN MY LIFE, ALMOST ALL BAD, BUT LET'S NOT GO THERE.)

I REMEMBER JACK COMING BY THE SET TO SAY HI TO OUR DIRECTOR AND I RAN OVER AND SHOOK HIS HAND - AND YOU KNOW, I MET THIS GUY FOR LIKE 30 SECONDS, AND HE WAS JUST SUCH A GREAT GUY, SO FRIENDLY. HE GAVE ME A BIG SMILE, HIS WARMTH RADIATED, SUCH A FRIENDLY, GENUINELY NICE GUY. THAT BRIEF MOMENT, THAT ENCOUNTER, I REMEMBER SO VIVIDLY, LIKE IT WAS YESTERDAY.

IN THE GREAT "MEMORABLE" MOMENTS WE ALL HAVE IN THE SCRAPBOOKS OF OUR OWN MINDS, I REALIZE "TIME" IS NOT REALLY AN IMPORTANT FACTOR AT ALL.

IN CONTRAST TO THAT FLEETING MOMENT WITH JACK, I'VE KNOWN MANY PEOPLE FOR YEARS AND THEY REALLY LEFT ME WITH NO SPECIAL MEMORIES, NOTHING MUCH TO HOLD ON TO.

AND I KNOW, YOU ARE SAYING, "WELL, DAMN, YEAH, BUT JACK KLUGMAN IS A CELEBRITY". FAIR POINT, BUT IT WAS MORE THAN THAT - HE REALLY WAS JUST SUCH A COOL GUY, SUCH A NICE MAN. HE SAID SOMETHING NICE TO ME, SOMETHING FLATTERING, BUT I DON'T WANT TO SHARE THAT, I APOLOGIZE.

YOU KNOW, THIS IS SUPPOSED TO BE A "CHRISTMAS MESSAGE", SO I GUESS I'M DIGRESSING. YOU KNOW, AT CHRISTMAS WE ALL GIVE GIFTS TO THE ONES WE LOVE. BUT SOME OF THE BEST GIFTS WE EVER GET HAVE NO WRAPPING PAPER, NO RIBBONS, NO TINSEL.

ALL OF US IN SHOW BUSINESS ARE SO LUCKY - NOT ONLY ARE WE VASTLY OVERPAID, BUT WE GET TO MEET SO MANY GREAT PEOPLE. CELEBRITIES, YES, BUT MANY OTHERS YOU'VE NEVER HEARD OF.

THE REALLY GREAT MOMENTS IN LIFE ARE REALLY JUST THE MOMENTS WE SHARE WITH OTHERS. IT CAN BE ANYTHING, SOMETIMES A CONVERSATION, A MEAL TOGETHER, A HUG, A UNIQUE EXPERIENCE SHARED, WHATEVER.

UNLIKE A WRAPPED CHRISTMAS GIFT, THESE SPECIAL MOMENTS ARE USUALLY UNPLANNED - THEY JUST HAPPEN. I HAVE HAD MANY OF THESE GREAT MOMENTS WITH MANY OF YOU.

I WANT TO WISH EVERYONE A MERRY CHRISTMAS. IF I HAVE MET YOU, IT IS A JOY I WILL ALWAYS HAVE - IF I HAVEN'T, IT IS MY LOSS.

JACK KLUGMAN MADE THAT MOMENT SO COOL, THAT TIME I MET HIM. AND WHEN I TELL YOU ABOUT THAT SPECIAL MOMENT I HAD IN MEETING HIM, I THINK, IN A WAY, I WAS TALKING ABOUT CHRISTMAS. THE MAGIC IN US ALL, THE GREATNESS WITHIN EVERY ONE OF US. THE LOVE WE ALL HAVE FOR ONE ANOTHER - OUR NATURAL FRIENDSHIP WITH EACH OTHER.

CHRISTMAS MESSAGE?

HMMMMM........
MAYBE I WASN'T DIGRESSING AT ALL.

MERRY CHRISTMAS TO MY WONDERFUL FRIENDS!!!

EDDIE

Christmas Time is Here Again!

 

FROM 1963 TO 1969, THE BEATLES RECORDED A SPECIAL CHRISTMAS RECORD FOR THEIR FANS. THIS IS THEIR 1967 RECORD. THIS WAS THE LAST TIME THE FOUR WERE REALLY CLOSE, THEIR LAST PRE-YOKO ONO CHRISTMAS. JOHN AND YOKO GOT TOGETHER IN MAY OF '68 AND THE FORMER CLOSENESS OF THE BAND WAS GONE FOREVER.

MICHAEL CLARKE DUNCAN -- 1957 - 2012

Mcd
I WAS SADDENED BY THE DEATH OF THE WONDERFUL ACTOR MICHAEL CLARKE DUNCAN OF THE GREEN MILE - ONE OF MY ALL-TIME FAVORITE FILMS.

I MET MICHAEL ONCE. IT WAS AFTER A JOB OR AUDITION AND I WAS WALKING OUT AND I SAW HIM (HE WAS MUCH SHORTER IN REAL LIFE!!) I SAID HOW MUCH I LOVED HIM IN THE GREEN MILE AND HE REPLIED, THANK YOU. COMING FROM YOU THAT MEANS A LOT TO ME.

WHAT A NICE GUY TO SAY THAT. YOU COULD FEEL THIS GUY'S NICENESS, HIS GOODNESS, JUST LIKE HIS CHARACTER IN THE GREEN MILE.

I WISH HIM WELL ON HIS JOURNEY.
