This could be the end of GMG – but YOU might be able to save it!

No, I’m not kidding.  On Thursday, the FCC will most likely vote to repeal Net Neutrality, the rule that prevents Internet Service Providers (ISPs) like Comcast, Verizon and AT&T from slowing down (a.k.a. throttling) or blocking websites and streaming services.  This means Comcast will be allowed to block your access to GMG for any reason they like.  And they could charge GMG a fee in order to have the block removed.  You and Joey and I will have no recourse.

But it gets worse.  If you have a small business, Comcast could also block your website and force you to pay a premium to get the block removed.  The technology exists for Comcast to block your Facebook page if they like and Facebook will have no recourse to prevent that.

As you might guess, there are those who favor repealing Net Neutrality, namely people at Comcast, AT&T and Verizon.  FCC Chairman, Ajit Pai, who proposed the repeal, is the former Associate General Council for Verizon where he handled competition matters, regulatory issues, and counseling of business units on broadband initiatives.  Perhaps now you’re getting the picture.

Ajit Pai has called Net Neutrality “a solution in search of a problem” which conveniently ignores the many times ISPs did exactly what we’re afraid of until the FCC came to our rescue.  See examples here.  Once Net Neutrality is repealed, the FCC will no longer be able to come to our rescue.

Imagine if the phone company decided to block calls to your mother in Iowa because whatever phone company she uses out there doesn’t want to pay a premium to allow calls from Massachusetts.

“That sort of thing has never happend,” you might say.  And you’d be right.  Because phone companies aren’t allowed to block calls or redirect them or add static or interfere with the sound or video quality  — all things that ISPs will be allowed to do without the Net Neutrality rules.  But wait!  Do you have VOIP from Comcast?  Or Verizon?  Or AT&T?  Better call your mom now and explain why you might not be able to call her after Thursday.

And while you’re at it, you might want to call your congressman Seth Moulton (202) 225-8020 and Senators Ed Markey 617-565-8519 and Elizabeth Warren (617) 565-3170.  Ask them to pressure the FCC not to repeal Net Neutrality.  And if that doesn’t work, perhaps congress can make Net Neutrality the law of the land.

This is serious folks.  The time to act is now.

Joey Asked, We Got Inspired: SAT NOV 25 Christmas Show that’s as much fun for Adults as it is for Kids

Bryson Lang & Santa (can you guess which one is Bryson?)

A few weeks ago, Joey called me asking if we were planning to have any shows for kids — and we got inspired.

We wanted to produce a show is as much fun for adults as it is for kids.

So… we’re bringing International star Bryson Lang‘s Cure for the Common Show to 9 Wallis (right down the road in Beverly) this Saturday at 2pm.

Comedy, Juggling, Music, Audience Participation, Lots of Fun!

And because it’s the Saturday after Thanksgiving, we invited Santa to make a magical appearance, hand out some gifts and pose on our stage with your child (or grandchild) for a perfectly lit photo op.

All for only 15 bucks! GET TICKETS HERE.

Snacks and beverages for adults and kids will be available for purchase.  All you have to do is bring the kids, relax and enjoy the show!

Cheryl Arena Tonight! Dave Sag’s Blues Party @ The Rhumb line 8:309m 10.19.2017

 

First, a shout out for Skip Hart, everybody’s favorite music fan. Got so used to seeing him every Thursday. Always an incisive comment and a double-dare to “go look it up”. I’m sorely going to miss him trundling through the door every week and throwing my own weight back in my face! RIP, Skip, we’ll all miss you.

And if you’re not tired of me yet, come wail with Ms. Cheryl Arena this Thursday at the Rhumb Line, where men are men and…well, skip it. Ms. C is a huge draw around here and I’m looking forward to stub my toe on her gargantuan amplifier.

She sings, she plays a divine harmonica and she’s bringing my favorite buffalo Bill lookalike: Mr. Pete Henderson to play quick draw guitar. Also on the bill is Mr. Forrest “Frosty”  Padgett, who just had surgery to remove a hip bone connected to the thigh bone. Once I stop laughing and sneezing, it’s gonna be just like fun!
