Dear OV, I work in digital advertising. When I tell you how much is known about you by media and tech companies it makes Fahrenheit 451 and Minority Report look like old issues of  Boys' Life.
Even if you didn't watch tv and used a rotary phone.   Sigh. 
My apologies for being part of the problem.

{#Good-vibes} Instinctively (cynically) I know what's happening, but I have to bear the burden of outrage because I'm so painfully independent lol.
I'm waiting on the black-ops helicopter and halo...

Make sure to watch the whole brilliant series or OATES WILL KICK YOUR ASS. It's amazing what they were able to do with some good writing, bad acting, and cheap props.

A good time to remind people of this work of genius. Skip to 2:45 for the part I'm thinking about.
At that part, Michael McDonald and Kenny Loggins are trying to come up with a song for the Doobies, after being threatened by Jeff "Skunk" Baxter.
So they track down Jim Messina, now a skid row bum after being left high and dry by Loggins...
