Morrie Markoff is not now and has never been a man of half measures. When he saw Depression-era evictions in his New York tenement, he became a fiery political activist. When he trained as a machinist, he was top of his class. When he argued with his wife, he left nothing in the tank. There's much to be learned from people like Markoff, who died briefly in 2012, but, true to his nature, clawed his way back to life. "His heart stopped, his eyes shut, his mouth fell open and his tongue dropped out," Morrie's daughter Judy said to me in an email, adding that the grieving family retreated to Good Samaritan Hospital's meditation room.

Our in-box becomes clogged with invites to arty holiday events this time of year. So in the spirit of spreading the word -- not to mention opening up some space on our hard drive -- here are a few worthy stops to make (starting Thursday night) on the quest for interesting, art-oriented gifts. Cal Arts' “East of Borneo,” an L.A.-centric contemporary art Web magazine, is hosting a “holiday cheer” and launch party for its new EoB Editions, a line of limited edition, signed and numbered artworks.

I got an email from Morrie Markoff suggesting we "hang around" together, seeing as how we'd both flatlined and lived to tell the story. In Morrie's case, he was getting fitted with a pacemaker the day before he turned 99, when "there was an unexplainable flash (wires shorted) scaring the hell out of the surgical crew (not me), bells rang, pandemonium reigned (not me again) and I became code blue. Not good. The surgeons killed me. (With six attorneys in the family, lots of work.) Some birthday present.
