5/9/18: WHAT HE LEFT BEHIND
May 8th, 2018 by Clark Humphrey

Relics from a Catholic saint visit Seattle on tour; Knights of Columbus Club building’s for sale; Microsoft’s new-found morality; Ms pitcher James Paxton’s no-no in TO.

5/8/18: THE BREWED BROOD
May 7th, 2018 by Clark Humphrey

Nestlé joins Starbucks (partly); protesting an NY bank’s Canadian oil investment in Seattle; Mike O’Brien removed from a Nordic Museum after-party.

4/17/18: FROM 10 WATTS TO 10 MILL
Apr 16th, 2018 by Clark Humphrey

KEXP’s massive donation; more Starbucks Philly fallout; Seattle’s best public crying spots; are Sprint and T-Mobile like old sitcom characters?

4/12/18: COOKING UP A STORM
Apr 11th, 2018 by Clark Humphrey

Saving baking arts at South Seattle College; what’s wrong with closing sex-work websites; coastal oil drilling’s now less likely; protests at wannabe Amazon HQ2 cities.

2/16/18: COMMUTERS IN THE SKY
Feb 15th, 2018 by Clark Humphrey

Flying cars (or something like them) at last?; did the state DOL help ICE prosecute Maru Mora-Villalpando?; stop pipelines with wine!

11/7/17: ON THE SPOT
Nov 7th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

In your pre-election letter: Fun-folky art saved in Eastern Wash.; Capitol women workers demand change; John Oliver vs. HQ2; a local name in the ‘Paradise Papers.’

9/13/17: THE (NO LONGER) WALKING ED
Sep 12th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

At 11 a.m., Ed Murray was about to hold a public announcement at KeyArena. A little more than two hours later, he sent word he was resigning. We’ve got glimpses of the whirlwind from assorted angles in today’s extra-long e-missive. We’ve also got Nordstrom’s latest plan to stay un-acquired; Durkan and Moon’s very different housing-crisis solutions; and potential new ways to make a border run.

8/4/17: CHOKIN’
Aug 4th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

Dry your smog-affected eyes long enough to read a Friday MISCmedia MAIL containing info about the nasty air and the big fires that caused it; what will or won’t be at the Hanford national historic park; more primary-election results; and Boeing test pilots’ elaborate stunt.

5/30/17: AMERICA AT ITS WORST, AND ITS BEST
May 29th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

Memorial Day weekend came close to home, as we remember two people who gave their lives defending America’s highest values—here in the Northwest, at the weekend’s start. Tuesday’s MISCmedia MAIL also has words on B.C.’s new (and much less oil-industry-friendly) government; another dead whale washed ashore; and an “aurora” in Seattle that’s not an old U.S. highway.

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 3/28/17: THE DOOMED DOME
Mar 27th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

On the anniversaries of its birth and death, we recall the Kingdome, that building of the future that’s now long passed. Other topics include Seattle standing tall against DC’s “sanctuary city” threats; Olympia Democrats’ budget plan; the differences between Seattle’s and Vancouver’s real-estate booms; and fun with out-of-context stage dialogue.

MISCmedia MAIL for 11/16/16
Nov 15th, 2016 by Clark Humphrey

Should we form an indie nation of western states? Join up with Canada? Do you know how darn-near impossible it’d be? In more real-world coverage, we view a settlement in the coal-train suit; EMP becoming “MoPOP” (no relation to KEXP’s show “WoPop”); King County’s aging homeowner population; and a wood-fueled jet plane!

MISCmedia MAIL for 11/4/16:
Nov 3rd, 2016 by Clark Humphrey

Café Racer, a longtime friend of MISCmedia and a pivotal aspect of multiple local communities, needs help to survive right now. The rest of our work this day concerns the centennial of the Northwest’s bloodiest worker-rights event; the overheated Vancouver real-estate market’s crash; the usual scads of weekend stuff-2-do; and a non-religious college finally sheds its “Missionaries” team name.

MISCmedia MAIL for 10/5/16: AUTUMNAL ODYSSEY
Oct 5th, 2016 by Clark Humphrey

We at #MISCmediaMAIL believe the Northwest autumn isn’t to be endured or survived but savored. We additionally sort out alleged conservative local-media bias; changes at SIFF; not-really-recyclable bags; ethnic emoticons; and a candle that supposedly smells like a “new Mac.”

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.
