We want the Vinyl Seat Player on The James Corden Show”  Here’s a very TRUE story…

April 19, 2017,The James Corden Late Late Show, #323, Adam Sandler and Kevin James had a conversation about The Vinyl Seat Player (Stephen Friedland/Brute Force), then James said, “And here he is.” In essence, he introduced me. (OK I wasn’t there. Uh… not booked)…SO please write James on his FB pg., https://www.facebook.com/latelateshowcbs/, OR, snailmail…James Corden, CBS -TV City, 7800 Beverly Blvd., LA, CA 90036, and say, “Dear James, I want The Vinyl Seat Player on your show.” And join my new FB group, “We want the Vinyl Seat Player on The James Corden Show”. Very grateful to ALL.

Planetworker: What, sir, do you mean by, “Brute Force, changing the world one venue at a time.”?

Brute Force: When I entertain I begin with an Existential Yoga position, The Doggie Surrender Pose. The Doggie Surrender Pose is a performance piece which brings into the mind: Yoga, Animal, Surrender, in the frame of comedy.  Yoga is introduced. It is the joining of Spirit and Mind. Just the mention of the word, “Yoga” is a benefit to the audience member who may never have known about Yoga. Yoga is a wonderful way to attune the mind and body to consciousness. Next, “Animal”.  . The human being has been in an age old struggle to understand our animal nature. How does this ancient animal nature influence our life as in agressive behaviour?  And, “Surrender”. To what can we surrender, to what do we need to surrender?

Planetworker: Do you mean political surrender, as in a war?

Brute Force: No. The surrender needed is surrender to our limited stay on this planet, physically, and surrender to the limitless iniverse. The body and mind are part of a limitless system.   So we have nothing to say about the limit and the limilessness, the limit of our body and the limitlessness of the universe. Our surrender, then, is complete surrender in that we have nothing to say about those phenomenon. We can, however, study the connection between the mind and the universe.

The Doggie Surrender Pose brings to the mind the seeds of these thoughts. Opens the mind. Helps change the world, one venue at a time. One club at a time.  And now one blog at a time.

Changing the world is part of the songs I sing, especially Pledge of Allegiance to the Planet. This song  brings loyalty to a new level: loyalty to our true home, country and nation…Planet Earth. This song is meant to change the thoughts of patriotism of all humanity. When that occurs we shall be closer to turning our weapons into plowshares, and eliminating the human habit of war.

Pledge of Allegiance to the Planet is found in PRODUCTS.

Eminent domain…on your block?

January 10, 2010

Brute’s Force…let’s get behind this and drive the evil eminent domain beast away!

Pls review…http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2010/01/01/AR2010010101367.html

and then…

George Will wrote this great article about Atlantic Yards, and we’re having a toast for him Sunday afternoon at 2pm. Please help us if you can by showing up. Sure, it would involve drinking (juice if you like). But I think somehow we can all make that sacrifice for such a good cause. Bring English friends, if you have any, to help translate from the American our request for British drinkers to boycott Barclays Bank (financial culprit behind Atlantic Yards evictions) to help save Freddy’s Bar. Because Barclays is trying to drive people from their homes and businesses. R U next?
