Encrypt web-based email with Mailvelope. It’s pretty solid. It’s compatible with your standard PGP or GPG keys (you can import them easily). Just make sure you type your messages in the secondary, pop-up window not in the default compose box, because that box gets automatically saved and copied to drafts, and it’s not encrypted. You should get in the habit of using a notepad to compose your messages anyway.
Warning, the #NSA kills a kitten for every encrypted message you send.
p.s. This message is signed by me, which you can verify if you have my public key:

Come and join us Sunday, April 13 at the Barnes & Noble at The Grove in Los Angeles as we reinvent the art of sharing. The public wants to consume culture, and we aim to feed it to ‘em! Here’s the story (no pun intended):
At 1pm we’ll wander casually into B&N, and pick out a book of our own choosing – the Bible, bodice-rippers, C++ programming, French poetry, whatever floats one’s boat. At 1:10, the public readings shall begin, as we all walk the store sharing aloud passages from our chosen books. The reading shall continue until 1:25, or until security throws us out.
EXTRA CREDIT! Participants are encouraged to create at least three bookmarks bearing a special message to consumers to place into random books around the store before the reading begins. Easily done while browsing for your favorite title to titillate the public with!
Please join us afterwards at the Buzz coffee shop 7623 Beverly Blvd, LA 90036 (at the corners of Beverly Blvd and The Grove Dr.).
GETTING THERE: Parking at The Grove is terrible and costs $$. By public transport, you can take the Metro to the Hollywood and Highland station, then hop on the 217 bus at the northwest corner of Hollywood and Highland Blvds (westbound). Get off at Fairfax and 3th St. The Grove is behind the Farmer’s Market. Or you can find your own route at the handy Los Angeles Metro Authority site: www.metro.net/default.asp

Thank you very much to the thirty two Santas have paid so far. Now I just need the other 168 of you to send me funding for this event December 1st. You are all responsible for how great this event can be. Twenty one bucks is a pittance, so just get it to me without procrastination.
PayPal ($21.00) peteatthebeachsd (at) yahoo (dot) com
Snailmail: ($20.00) Pete A. P.O. Box 7468, San Diego CA 92167
Ahoy thar Santas, its that time of year again. Dust off (or clean the puke out of) your Santa costumes and prepare to prank, culture jam, eat, drink, and be Merry (or Mary) in Downtown LA Saturday 12/08/07.
When: Saturday 12/08/07 @ 11:00 A.M. (on the march by Noon)
Where: Downtown Los Angeles (exact meeting spot TBA)
How F-ing much?: Mail $20.00 CASH to me by 12/1 snail mail with an SASE to send you your sleigh pass.
Send to: Pete A., P.O.Box 7468, San Diego CA 92167 so I get it NO LATER than DEC 1st!
Or: PayPal me $21.00 to peteatthebeachsd (at) yahoo (dot) com
or, and I highly discourage this, you can pay me $25.00 CASH the day of the event but you must contact me first with your extenuating circumstances to get on the list.
Lets swell our numbers this year, even if it means including you damn elves!
“To PayPal me for LA SantaCon, my email addy is peteatthebeachsd (at) yahoo (dot) com. (Sorry, I forgot topica trucates email addresses).
We may be using the Metro, rental buses, walking, or possibly all three modes of transportation. I’m walking the route tomorrow with a heal spur on my left foot, so rest assured, if I can handle the walking part, I’m pretty sure the rest of you Santas should be just fine. I’m also negotiating free cheap overnite parking for all the Santas driving into downtown LA as well as a few surprises on the route. However, most of this will NOT happen unless I have funding from caring Santas like you.
The more folks who PayPal me or mail me the $, the funner the event will be. If I don’t get the funding, it’s gonna be bare bones, and the few who paid me will get their $ back. I hope you all have faith in me to use the money wisely for a really great day Dec 8th, so please commit to this event and get me fully funded no later that 12/1. Ho. –HelliSanta”
I just got back from two solid days of Santa ReCon. After I process my intel, I'll post here with the results. Saturday 12/8 at Noon(earlier if you want to sit down and eat with all the Santa Clones)is *when* it's happening, so save the date please. If you havn't already, get your Santa suits ready, prepare your picket signage, and pop some new batteries into your bullhorns, 'cause Santa's comin' to town bitch!
Isn’t that a song? “Come on! Coagulation time, come on!”
Ok, so I live in LA. And LA is basically synonymous with Hollywood to most of the people in the world. Right now a lot of Hollywood, specifically the TV industry, is frozen because the Writer’s Guild is on strike. What this means is no new TV sitcoms and dramas, more repeats and more Reality TV. Got it? So crappy TV gets even crappier. It really doesn’t matter much to me, because pretty much all good TV is found on Cable, and Cable TV doesn’t seem to be effected by the Writer’s Guild. I really don’t know. I really don’t care. Personally I will never cross picket lines because I believe what strikes stand for. I don’t care for unions, but I do care for workers rights. People need unions, i don’t need unions, but I digress… I have an idea for a prank. We dress up like scabs, carry pads of paper or notebooks, and sit across from the striking writers, and start writing episodes for our favorite TV. Especially the ones we hate. And the hilarity ensues. Yes, this is a bad idea. But bad ideas tend to be the best.
