Hi everyone. Thanks for taking a moment to tune in to our “Lighter
Side of Higher Consciousness” web series. I’m Steve Allen Prutting,
the narrator of this series, as well as Bruce’s side kick on this long
and winding road show. I’m writing this first blog to share with you
all a little background so you’ll know how this project got off the
ground. I have so much to tell and so many blogs to tell it in! Here
Five years ago, Bruce called me out of the blue. He told me that he
had been ice skating with his son when God spoke to him, and that he
had been guided to write a book. Bruce told me that he had recently
completed that book and that I was the man to get his book and message
out to the masses. (You see, I have a bi-coastal PR firm that
promotes many of the top authors/ products/ projects in the
metaphysical/ self help/ green/ health worlds.) I shared Bruce’s
powerful book and materials with my good buddies, film maker pals…..
The rest of the story is our web series.
The web series has been edited so that it will unfold quite quickly
(one episode per week), and it will lead you right up to the present.
You, the viewer, will ride shot-gun as Bruce and I travel this
beautiful country and banter with the souls of America. No matter
what, it’ll be fun.
I’d like to mention that Bruce, the ice cream man, has fun saying that
everyone and everything is deliciously unique, like all those perfect
flavors of ice cream he scoops – they all taste great. It’s a good
rap- one that the crew and I have bitten into. We sincerely believe
that if we can get more people to see this truth, our world will be a
much better place (as cliché as that may sound). If anything, we hope
to nudge you, our viewer, to follow your persistent guidance – the
guidance that is everywhere, right here in our midst, the guidance
that leads to the joy that all of us seek. Presence brings
presents….. Enough for now….. Welcome aboard!
It will come up, so I’ll mention it now. I was an actor for a good
chunk of my life before climbing into the PR world. After my wife
gave birth to our fourth child, it became very clear that I needed to
change professions (so I could feed a family of six). By that time, I
had done close to 20 different roles of all sizes on numerous TV
series- all speaking roles, but some bigger than others. The one role
that still stands out (and this was not a lead role by any means), the
one that everyone remembers, is that of the original “Father of the
Ugly Baby” in the Seinfeld series. I remember when I was auditioning
for the part with Larry David (Curb Your Enthusiasm) and Jerry
Seinfeld in the room. They both said to me, “Life will never be the
same after this role.” They were right.
