MISCmedia MAIL for 9/23/16: THE DAY BEFORE THE DAY BEFORE
Sep 22nd, 2016 by Clark Humphrey

Before the weekend is done, our splendiferous “LOSER” book reissue party (Sunday evening at Vermillion, 11th between Pike and Pine) will occur. But before then you can read about a highly deserving arts-award winner; the case against the “youth jail”; the still-deepening morass that is the municipal homelessness response; the World Trade Organization (remember them?) siding with Boeing; and an idea for a vastly scaled-down walkway aside I-5.

MISCmedia MAIL for 9/22/16: THE BITTEREST PILL
Sep 22nd, 2016 by Clark Humphrey

One of Seattle’s last indie pharmacies will soon reach its expiration date with no refills. We speak as well about a UW minimum-wage analyst’s alleged conflict-O-interest; public schools filled to overflowing (again); Marshawn Lynch talking more about social justice than about his own business ventures; another potential Boeing “tax windfall”; and the Storm season’s sudden end.

MISCmedia MAIL for 9/16/16: BUNKER BLOCKED?
Sep 15th, 2016 by Clark Humphrey

That fancy new police building folks have rallied against? Sent back for further review. Among other topics this day: Loving portraits of GLBT Mormons; whether the police really needed to shoot Che Taylor; still more Chinese speculation money in Seattle real estate; the usual many, many weekend event listings; and a weird idea to give homeless folks “non-monetary donations” online.

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.

MISCmedia MAIL for 9/9/16: WHO SEZ THE ‘SEATTLE PROCESS’ IS DEAD?
Sep 8th, 2016 by Clark Humphrey

What to do about homelessness? I know, let’s hire a high-priced consultant who’ll ignore encampments, addictions, and mental illness issues, and who’ll just call for lots of subsidies to private developers! Other topics today include the world’s largest ice cube (that doesn’t star in any Friday movies), how one South Lake Union legacy business survives; a odd-couple marriage in the art world; and very little about the 9/11 anniversary.

MISCmedia MAIL for 9/6/16
Sep 5th, 2016 by Clark Humphrey

Back from Labor Day, we’ve got a whole new grab-baggy of info-nuggets, including the proposed anti-“sweeps” bill and its discontents; local tech companies merging with Australian mining firms; Boeing’s malfunctioning assembly robots; a counter-offer to those who want to keep the Mama’s building; and an offer to Seattle’s priced-out musicians from Everett.

MISCmedia MAIL for 9/30/16: TWO KINDS OF STINK
Aug 29th, 2016 by Clark Humphrey

A pair of rancid, reeking spectacles have come to the area. One of them is a blooming “corpse flower.” Other headlines this day concern a Heart hubby’s allegedly jerky behavior backstage; the dumbest suggestion for the homeless crisis to date; Idaho survivalist cults unimpressed by civilization’s failure to collapse; and memories of a pioneering black judge.

MISCmedia MAIL for 8/23/16: A DIP IN THE MONEY POOL
Aug 22nd, 2016 by Clark Humphrey

Global speculators, having been made less than welcome in Vancouver, are already driving Seattle real estate even higher. In other Tuesday topix: wildfires are back; airlines (and Sea-Tac) boom while Boeing struggles; Councilmember Herbold wants a replacement for the despised old business “head tax”; and Town Hall’s selling off its parking lots for two towers.

MISCmedia MAIL for 8/11/16: THE SOUND OF SCHMOOZE-IC
Aug 11th, 2016 by Clark Humphrey

Paul Allen’s next big local spectacular will be a music festival and industry confab, coming to Pioneer Square in May. And we also look at another Black Lives Matter march; a fish-processing plant proposed for the soon-to-be-ex Weyerhaeuser campus; feudin’ whales; and an ex-governor’s questionable real-estate sale.

MISCmedia MAIL for 7/19/16: A WHOLE (POTENTIALLY) NEW BALL GAME
Jul 18th, 2016 by Clark Humphrey

On the 10th anniversary of the sale that doomed the Sonics, here’s a modest proposal: Instead of waiting (potentially forever) for the NBA’s brass to approve of Seattle’s existence, let’s start our own league!

Other topics this in your (for today at least) GOP-free newsletter include a battle over water in and near Leavenworth; Central Co-Op’s sudden Tacoma closure; another cleared-out encampment; and Boeing’s switch to “the cloud.”

MISCmedia MAIL for 7/18/16
Jul 18th, 2016 by Clark Humphrey

One each of every Boeing “7 series” plane model was all lined up, and it wasn’t a “stacked landing pattern.” We’re also looking at further misadventures in talk-radio “outrage porn;” the looming end of the building known as “Fairview Fanny;” big fee hikes for outdoor events in town; Lauren Jackson’s hail n’ farewell; and Bertha’s makers insisting it was fine when it left the factory.

MISCmedia MAIL for 7/13/16: SPOGwatch
Jul 12th, 2016 by Clark Humphrey

The head of the Seattle police union, after scrubbing its social-media presence, has quit. Elsewhere, there’s nostalgia for when a teacher could buy a house here; the threat that climate change could bring even more people here; potential new life for an historic gay bar; and support for a local music legend.

MISCmedia MAIL for 7/12/17: YOU DON’T LOOK A DAY OVER 707
Jul 11th, 2016 by Clark Humphrey

Boeing turns 100 on the cusp of another boom, another bust, or perhaps both. In other topics: the instant-classic news photo from the streets of Baton Rouge; a car-company exec insists the only transportation we’ll ever need is cars; an electronic music fest rises from another’s cinders; new life for a beloved record store; and the perfect metaphoric name for Amazon’s domes.

MISCmedia MAIL for 7/7/16: FEELIN’ LUCKY?
Jul 6th, 2016 by Clark Humphrey

On the supposedly luckiest day of the year, we explore still more trouble for Tim Eyman; a scheme to build “affordable” housing on top of parking garages; Microsoft learning how not to relate to college students; a company trying to create “viral” videos; and a broadcasting landmark’s sad end.

MISCmedia MAIL for 7/5/16: NOT-QUITE-AMBER WAVES OF GRAIN
Jul 4th, 2016 by Clark Humphrey

Now that the last amateur drinking day’s over, we return to news-digestin’ with attempts to save the sockeye; an unsung city park’s anniversary; a troubled trove of regional history; a church offering drug-assisted enlightenment; and great news for all Thucking-Funder haters!
