8/20/18: TUNNEL VISIONS
Aug 19th, 2018 by Clark Humphrey

The grandest Battery Street Tunnel idea yet; what Kim Schrier really said about WWII; a legal victory for the mentally ill; Third Avenue now bus-only; the Storm’s terrific season.

8/10/18: SPEAKING OUT IN THE OPEN
Aug 9th, 2018 by Clark Humphrey

More Meinert accusers, now willing to be named; ‘date-rape drug’ seized at Belltown nightclub; will a ‘private’ Spokane speech doom the GOP’s midterm chances?

6/8/18: NOW WE ARE THREE
Jun 7th, 2018 by Clark Humphrey

A birthday for this e-missive (and its maker); various Seattles that might have been; ICE mothers jailed here; peacocks vs. cars in BC.

12/8/17: THE PUCK STARTS HERE?
Dec 8th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

In your big weekend letter: The campaign for a Seattle NHL team commences; the real cost of virtual currency; non-progress in hotel-worker safety; another major Seattle institution approaches its date of death.

10/30/17: SUNK TRANSIT
Oct 30th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

We begin another wacky week of news with more supposedly-clever ways to abandon bike-share vehicles; NFL protests get more “meta”; and letting building owners sell their “airspace.”

5/22/17: I SEE YOU’VE MET THE ‘TWIN’S
May 22nd, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

Twin Peaks is back. Or rather, something mostly new under that title and with several of the old show’s characters has arrived, and it’s a beaut.  Today’s MISCmedia MAIL also looks at more Chris Cornell reactions; the death of a major local lit n’ history figure; one person named Grant dissing another; and a major Belltown arts-creation space going away.

5/15/17: SO GALLANTLY (UP)STREAMING
May 15th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

A new week of MISCmedia MAIL begins with a postmortem on Paul Allen’s big in-town music fest; a list of 13 important Washington books (and one Washington book publisher); more on America’s worst broadcaster; and Seattle’s second hockey championship in 101 years.

5/3/17: A LITTLE BIRDIE TOLD HIM
May 3rd, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

We welcome (possibly) the first warm day of the year with a MISCmedia MAIL containing the eco-lesson a filmmaker learned from a dead albatross; another Ed Murray accuser; a longer-than-usual Mariners loss; and the arrival of the Storm to relieve us from Ms-related ennui.

4/26/17: FAKE MUD AND A DEMOLISHED DINER
Apr 26th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

In Tuesday’s e-missive: A new low in fashion silliness; a local landmark razed two years after its closure; a GOP state senator who wants to force the city and county to divorce; more hipster “Native inspired” culture-theft; and fake “No Parking” signs.

MISCmedia MAIL FOR 3/30/17: LIFE IMITATES CGI
Mar 29th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

It’s just a coincidence that there’s a computer-animated feature out now called “The Boss Baby,” and that the title role is voiced by Alec Baldwin, and that ads show the baby in a suit and tie with orange-ish hair. Really. In more deliberate occurrences, we note Daniel Ramirez’s freedom (at least for now); neighbors who want more public amenities in the expanded Convention Center; Jeff Bezos’ even greater (on paper) wealth; and the little Belltown restaurant that got big.

MISCmedia MAIL FOR 1/23/17: NEWS ON THE MARCH
Jan 22nd, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

A lot more thoughts, and links, about the bigger than big Womxn’s March here. We’ve also got good news for Belltown historic preservation; a “virtual reality visit” with some of the homeless; and more speculation about D.B. Cooper.

 

MISCmedia MAIL FOR 1/6/17: AS HE LAY DYING
Jan 5th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

Video evidence shows that police-shooting victim Che Taylor was left to bleed on the ground for almost eight minutes. We also discuss a potentially misguided effort to industrialize a suburb; big sign-ups for the local Women’s March; a girls’ school adding boys (in a separate facility); Korean fashion coming to town; and the usual dozens of weekend activity listings.

MISCmedia MAIL FOR 12/28/16: WHITE LIKE ME
Dec 27th, 2016 by Clark Humphrey

In our midweek missive: An activist on how white “allies” can work for racial justice without, you know, taking everything over; park-and-ride lots’ popularity; still hyper-inflating home prices; good news for Queen City Grill diners; and yet another tragic celebrity death.

MISCmedia MAIL FOR 11/25/16: BLACK (LIVES MATTER) FRIDAY
Nov 24th, 2016 by Clark Humphrey

Don’t think of today as a dispute between racial justice and shopping. Think of it as a potential meeting of racial justice and holiday compassion. Also: One of Belltown’s longest-running gourmet eateries threatened; art and music against the new DC regime; and Olympia’s police chief doesn’t like “fracking sand” trains through his town either.

MISCmedia MAIL for 9/15/16: GOING NATURAL?
Sep 14th, 2016 by Clark Humphrey

We ponder what Seattle would look like without all the dredgings, regrades, and other extreme makeovers it’s had. We also explore folk turning odd spots into community gardens; a protest against holding babies in immigration jails; an innovative tech-ed program that’s threatened by redevelopment; and, oh yeah, the amazin’ Ms.
