MISCmedia MAIL for 5/25/16
May 25th, 2016 by Clark Humphrey

Our midweek missive contains a man charged with stealing from the sick to help the religious; a Seattle Times pundit being totally wrong about something (again); U of Oregon students behaving badly; the state of ethnic artists in a white arts scene; and the latest thing in earbuds.

Besides the (ridiculously insufficient) plan to relocate The Jungle’s residents, we delve into Amazon’s shareholders meeting and its discontents; the SU office occupation (still going on!); a plan to fatally “improve” Steinbrueck Park; the Mariners’ return to winning; and Mt. St. Helens Day!

On Mt. St. Helens Day Eve, Mt. Hood’s giving off a bunch of tiny earthquakes. Plus: A tower devoted to “co-living spaces;” turning the U District into the next Westlake; really really big watercraft; and just why some women would rather buy clothes online these days.

We’re all still Mariners fans after this past weekend, right? Also under review: High-school students take charge of trans-bathroom activism; oil protesters arrested on train tracks; how the KPLU/KUOW deal really went down; a new site for the Punk Rock Flea Market (replacing the previous new site); and Amazon’s threat to every mall and clothing store.

MISCmedia MAIL for 5/9/16:
May 8th, 2016 by Clark Humphrey

A “slow news” weekend ends with the the Viaduct’s surprise early reopening (unless they’d secretly planned it this way all along). Also: Creamed Cornish?; Boeing’s greatest fiscal hits and misses; the potential start of another Wash. wildfire season; and how to sneak an arena proposal past today’s City Council.

Ivan (the Tacoma shopping-center gorilla) lives! In other stuff: GiveBIG’s big website crash; a different kind of “peak oil”; Seattle’s “not so hidden” racist heritage; and the pro b-ball team we’ve still got.

MISCmedia MAIL for 4/3/16: SUDDEN DEATH; OVERTIME?
May 2nd, 2016 by Clark Humphrey

Now that would-be arena builder Chris Hansen can’t buy two blocks of a little-used city street, he says his plan will go forward, but how? Also for your Tuesday perusal: The Lusty Lady space won’t host the Punk Rock Flea Market after all; the big housing levy’s going to the ballot; a little music/art space closes; an old-school local rock promoter dies;  and more May Day anarchist aftermath.

Welcome to Viageddon! And to another potential May Day of window-bustin! We also view a City attempt to keep snooping into garbage; a potential partial breakthrough in the Sodo arena fracas; drones maybe getting too close to whales; and the usual gazillion weekend activities including Indie Bookstore Day.

The Mariners won at home! And we also peer at more folk who want more light rail and they don’t mean decades from now; the eco-cost of the new Arboretum trail; a Seattle/Mexico joint theater project; local delivery trucks with out-of-state plates; and the business case for a $15/hr. wage.

A new week dawns, and with it remarks about more “façaded” old buildings; a local celebrity trying to break into politics; Amazon’s growing array of store-brand stuff; a longtime enemy of transit now saying he likes SOME transit; and the Mariners’ return to the average.

MISCmedia MAIL for 4/22/16
Apr 21st, 2016 by Clark Humphrey

You know we’re talking about yet another music/art/performance legend gone far, far too soon. Back in local stuff, there’s some funny and sobering Earth Day thoughts; an attempt to legalize sub-minimum wages; the new owners of I Can Has Cheezburger; a local nightlife mogul’s role in today’s hottest musical act; a century-old “City Beautiful” plan that didn’t make it; and the usual plethora of weekend things-2-do.

MISCmedia MAIL for 4/19/16

In the heat-O-the-night, we observe a West Seattle landmark restored; an important GLBTQ institution threatened; a Hanford waste tank leaking; car-share service in the south end lacking; and Nordstrom’s Seattle office staff shrinking.

MISCmedia MAIL for 4/15/16
Apr 15th, 2016 by Clark Humphrey

A big weekend for KEXP listeners, taxpayers, and others begins, as always, with our big list-O-stuff-to-do. Also: denying true respect for a murdered individual; the “Montlake spite house” can again be yours; teaching compassion to Magnolia NIMBYs; UW wins a round vs. city preservationists; whether Puget Sound whales are too “screwed up.”

MISCmedia MAIL for 4/11/16

The Comic Con costume brigades are gone, but we’re still here to mention a new look for the main ferry terminal; racial “microaggressions” on campuses; baseball’s least-loyal fans; the spread of “retail theater” concepts; and the latest big food spill from a semi.

In our midweek news: there’s a state budget at last; Boeing’s dropping thousands of workers (again); 15 indoor homeless shelters could close; Sen. Murray still (heart)s ex-Sen. Clinton; and homeowners could derail an urban-wilderness preservation project.
