If you would indulge me and those friends of ours who value privacy and object to ubiquitous surveillance and data harvesting:


( If you have a creeping 1984-ish feeling that all this shit may not be in your and our society’s best interest but feel overwhelmed and unsure how to opt out of any of it, you may want to start with a simple, cheap microphone blocker and, perhaps, residue-free camera lens blocking stickers on your phone and on your computer; both available at: https://mic-lock.com/collections/all )

* unless it is an Above Phone or similar privacy phone

Avoid Apple

Abandon Amazon

Forget Facebook

…and whatever you do, GET. OFF. GOOGLE.

Finally, a shout-out to my friends of Siren Theater.

Check out their play “The Raging Canal” in High Falls. Show times remaining are June 17 at 7pm and (post-party) June 18 at 4pm and 7pm. I really enjoyed it ! ! !

It’s not your average sit-down play. You’ll walk around different rooms and outside by the canal as the plot thickens…
