"I'm With Him": Stories From an Enduring Youth
Huffington Post - over 2 years
This post is adapted from an essay in John V. Lindsay: 50th Anniversary Commemoration, out today from International Publishers. I first met John Vliet Lindsay in 1964. I was a Queens high school student whose letter to Congressman Lindsay got me a meeting with him. Arriving at his office, I met the Congressman's EA, Barney Patterson; then his LA, Connie Eristoff. Barney's a girl, Connie's a guy -- progressive stuff for a kid from Flushing. Then, ushered into his office, to the preppiest guy I ever laid eyes on -- Robert Redford looks and Eleanor Roosevelt idealism ... he was, nonetheless, a Republican. Their last presidential candidate was Goldwater. I hesitated but, in the immortal words of Some Like It Hot: "nobody's perfect." Only he kinda was. On the way out, Barney says that if I am still smitten come the spring, contact Mackie Arnstein to volunteer for Lindsay's next campaign. Spring arrived, fifty years ago. I took the #7 train from my parents' home to Grand Centr...

9 Famous People Who Proved You Don't Need To Be Loud To Make Real Noise
Huffington Post - about 4 years
Can the meek actually inherit the Earth? Many of the world's most revered leaders have actually been far less outgoing than their public personas would lead us to believe. Through their successes, we learn that being shy absolutely doesn't mean being powerless. Sometimes you need to be quiet to make real noise, and always remember, actions speak louder than words. Below are nine famous people that commonly strike us as outgoing, but who were actually far more quiet at heart. 1. Abraham Lincoln Despite being the 16th President of the U.S. and a towering figure that presided over the Civil War, Abraham Lincoln was a great communicator who simultaneously didn't “offend by superiority," as Ralph Waldo Emerson put it. Despite his affinity for storytelling, a trait popularized by Daniel Day Lewis in the film, "Lincoln," the president was frequently described as a quiet man. Charles Francis Adams Jr., grandson of President John Quincy Adams, once wrote of Lincoln, "He seemed shy to ...

'The Larry Sanders Show': The 'Breaking Bad' of Sitcoms
Huffington Post - over 4 years
The week that Breaking Bad finishes, it seems fitting (or the lowest form of hack opportunism to publish an article I've had marinating for months) to reappraise a show as revolutionary, allegorical and morally nebulous in a different genre. The Larry Sanders Show, which ran on HBO for six series from 1992 to 1998, is a fictional chatshow-within-a-show that interlaces behind-the-scenes chaos with snippets of the chatshow itself. It is, in my opinion, the Great American Sitcom, a sharp, dark, complicated exploration of quintessentially American ambition, an infinite hall of cracked mirrors, a recursion between the chatshow and the sitcom as half-evolving, half-monolithic forms. Its roll call of celebrity cameos is almost preposterously impressive (Robin Williams, Billy Crystal, David Duchovny, Adam Sandler, Burt Reynolds, Jennifer Aniston, Helen Hunt, David Letterman, Jerry Seinfeld, Danny DeVito, Sharon Stone, Sarah Jessica Parker, Vince Vaughn, Jeff Goldblum, Ben Stiller, Winon...

Legendary Musician Opens Up About Daughter's Suicide
Huffington Post - almost 5 years
NEW YORK — Burt Bacharach knew writing a memoir would be emotional – not because of his never-heard backstage tales or his tumultuous marriages. He knew that being honest would force him to come to terms with the death of his daughter. "It was very tough because I had to revisit what that period was and go deeper into it," he said of his daughter Nikki's premature birth, years of emotional issues, and eventual suicide at the age of 40. The 84-year-old award-winning music composer of such classics as "I'll Never Fall in Love Again," the Oscar-winning "Raindrops Keep Fallin' on My Head," and The Carpenters' "(They Long to Be) Close to You," understood that baring his deep, dark secrets was essential to his recently released autobiography, "Anyone Who Had a Heart: My Life and Music" (Harper). The idea for a memoir came long before Nikki's death in 2007. Bacharach had Nikki with former wife Angie Dickinson, best known for her role on the seventies drama, "Police W...

Jay Weston: Paul Anka's "My Way," Reviewed from the Inside!
Huffington Post - almost 5 years
For most of the first decade of his amazing 60 year career, I was Paul Anka's publicist. So I read his new autobiography, MY WAY (St. Martin's Press) with special interest. It all began for me with a phone call in the late '50s from a Washington, D.C. drugstore owner-turned-talent manager named Irv Feld, who heard I had finished representing Sammy Davis, Jr. after several years. He asked if I would take on his new client, a young fifteen-year old singer/songwriter just down to N.Y. from Canada. The song he was pushing was "Diana" and I learned he was sleeping in the bathtub of an apartment in the President Hotel occupied by a fellow Canadian music group called The Rover Boys ("Graduation Day") who coincidentally were being managed by my best friend, Fred Amsel. For the first months of his New York visit, Paul camped out anywhere he could get a bed, although eventually the Anka family, father Andy, mother Camy, sister Mariam and brother Andy moved down from Ottawa to Tenafl...

Secret Sex – A Book Alive Online: Chapter 34 – Vows
eNews Channels - over 5 years
eNewsChannels BOOK SERIAL: “Secret Sex, A Book Alive Online,” written and lived by John Scott G. Chapter 34 – “Vows.” Warning, severe plot twist coming. Here we go: I got married. “WTF?” I hear you saying. Yup, it was a shock to many people. This is probably where we should cue up some eerie and ominous sound effects. Asking my friends to suggest the most disturbing music they’ve ever heard resulted in a number of interesting replies, including “Psycho” by Bernard Herrmann. Also: “Macarena” by Los Del Rio. “The Isle of the Dead” by Sergei Rachmaninoff. “Yummy Yummy Yummy” by Ohio Express Overture to “The Flying Dutchman” by Richard Wagner. Anything by Raffi, Kenny G, or Mannheim Steamroller. “Toccata and Fugue in D minor” by J.S. Bach. Anything by Pat Boone, Michael Bolton, or the Black Eyed Peas. My personal pick might be Olivier Messiaen’s “Quartet for the End of Time,” not only because it was written while the composer was in a concentration camp but also bec...
