Glad you asked -
Kenny's last incarnation did end, alright. Lately I have been spending time at the home of my famous psychedelic-research/new-age author friend, Marilyn Ferguson (The Aquarian Conspiracy, Brain/Mind Bulletin). Marilyn "channels" via the keyboard and has regular contact with many luminaries whom she refers to as the "Gone-yonders" (including Shakespeare, Buckminster Fuller, Lewis Carroll, Timothy Leary, etc.). For more info on Marilyn you may run a Web search.
Recently, at my request, she contacted Kenny briefly and here is the exchange -
MF Uston Contact 9/13/99
MF: Greetings, Kenny Uston/Usui . . . (The Grifter) would like a consultation regarding his idea of a documentary on the blackjack phenomenon and culture, the casinos, the evolution, etc. including your story.
MF: How did you come to die Ė was there foul play, and if so details?
KU: I died of exposure, you might say, but I had a little help, and thatís all I want to say.
MF: What are you doing now?
KU: Working, what else if thereís a choice? Further research on the link between state and luck, especially in terms of demonstrations that would bring this profound fact home to people without the need for whereases and whys. I love flowers, I always did, and Iíve been cultivating roses of all kinds pink and brown irises, marigolds, lilies of the valley, baby breath, cacti, willows, maidenhair fern, and other friendly flora. Iím rapt theyíre dazzled by my passion, and I think weíll all get married as soon as I find somebody gutzy enough to tie the knot and a vase big enough for the reception.
MF: Do you have ideas about a documentary?
KU: More than enough to fill an amphitheater, so letís get down to cases. I hope you donít mind more ideas than you bargained for and that you donít think I misunderstood the question.
KU: A documentary series, a multimedia accompanying promotional show to get the buzz going, a scholarly research project including a university chair, mood music commissioned from a young but evolved composer, libretto by Peter Gabriel and Kate Bush, music video coffee table book with real cards hand-tipped, numbered limited edition, showing the subtle but unmistakable influence of games of chance and skill on western culture; if blackjack were tarot what would it look like, using beautiful stylized photographs of great card players (King of Kings, the Joker Fool, the Ace of Spades shown as a work of art like the Ace of Swords rather than the usual boring card). Could evolve continually, Gambling will naturally phase out as the nomadic, high spirited civilization becomes deeply dimensional.
MF: We are being called and look forward to our next chat, bye for now.
KU: Lovely, bye
"... the link between state and luck." Hmmm.
