MISCmedia MAIL for 7/26/16: THE NIXON WE LIKED
Jul 25th, 2016 by Clark Humphrey

It’s a sad day for fans of “ghost singer” and KOMO kids’ host Marni Nixon. We also think about a victory for a police whistleblower; a potential new name for Alaskan Way; the STILL unending road work on 23rd Avenue; attempts to pump up the local arts scene; and what the Seattle U sit-in protesters still want.

MISCmedia MAIL for 7/25/16: OH YOU ‘KID’
Jul 24th, 2016 by Clark Humphrey

There aren’t many people as universally admired, in and out of his line of work, than Ken Griffey Jr. We join a lot of other people honoring him on his Hall of Fame induction. We’ve also got stuff about another Bertha-related lawsuit; a victory for Seattle U activists; the death of Apodments®; and the time when the Tulalip Tribes outwitted He Who Must Not Be Named.

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 7/14/16: COCA, CENTERED
Jul 13th, 2016 by Clark Humphrey

At how many different spots have I seen Center on Contemporary Art (COCA) shows? At least a dozen. Now they’ve got a space of their very own, at least for the medium-term. Additionally, we peer at ever-weirder attempts to tie in to Pokémon Go mania; a commercial-health-insurance rift; Black Lives Matter’s potential futures; Seattle’s last big “undeveloped” land tract saved; and Breanna Stewart speaking out for women’s sports at the ESPYs.

MISCmedia MAIL for 7/8/17: THE VICIOUS CYCLE CONTINUES
Jul 8th, 2016 by Clark Humphrey

At the end of a week of horrid violence and counter-violence, we at least don’t have to deal with the anti-trans bigots for the moment. Other topics today include the sad case of a drug-stealing nurse; a Chinese design firm helps make a park in Seattle’s Intl. District; alleged progress in artificial intelligence; and a few hundred weekend event listings.

MISCmedia MAIL for 6/28/16: GOIN’ SOUTH?
Jun 27th, 2016 by Clark Humphrey

Could Amazon be establishing a new techie beachhead in Portland? Besides that, we view the huge Tulalip fireworks bazaar; celebrations for the Supreme Court’s abortion ruling; more trouble for prosecutor Mark Lindquist; a bigger Panama Canal’s existential threat to our seaports; and a change of heart on the Viaduct park initiative.

MISCmedia MAIL for 6/17/16: THE LONGEST DAY
Jun 16th, 2016 by Clark Humphrey

Our pre-Solstice Weekend e-missive hopes the Fremont paraders will honor LGBT defiance. We also espy a quarter-century of the Crocodile; not-that-rapid transit; The Jungle’s official landscape architect; Microsoft’s new “business-to-business” venture that’s NOT LinkedIn; and even more weekend activities than usual.

MISCmedia MAIL for 6/16/16: FOR THE BIRDS
Jun 16th, 2016 by Clark Humphrey

On a palindromic date we view evidence of “reverse molecules” in space; Tacoma’s downtown falcons; more Orlando reactions here and in DC; jail inmates allegedly forced to take drugs; the state’s regressive tax system used as a selling point for zillionaire homes; and a creepy “joke” by the anti-trans initiative boss.

MISCmedia MAIL for 6/13/16
Jun 12th, 2016 by Clark Humphrey

Making sense of the senseless: I can’t even try. But I try anyway. I also look at the paucity of women on local corporate boards; more trouble for Western State Hospital; a worker walkout at a strawberry farm; and an attack of “Diarrhetic Shellfish Poison.”

MISCmedia MAIL for 5/13/16
May 12th, 2016 by Clark Humphrey

Our Friday the 13th topics include the full-on start of local wildfire season; an attempt to adopt an income tax in (at least part of) Washington; school dress codes and their discontents; the death of a great Northwest novelist; and the decaying bones of drive-in theaters past.

MISCmedia MAIL for 5/11/16
May 10th, 2016 by Clark Humphrey

Let’s deal this day with a huge “green” building that’ll probably never get built; attempts to salvage a salmon fishing season; police (allegedly) behaving badly (but at least non-fatally); an attempted compromise to the HALA legislation; a late original Northwest Rock musician; and the silliest beer-marketing shtick we’ve seen in a long while.

MISCmedia MAIL for 5/10/16
May 9th, 2016 by Clark Humphrey

Oh no, not Roq La Rue closing! That’s worse than, well, several other bad things. Also today: Asking Bernie Sanders to run for President like he’s run for the Senate (as an indie); Ammon Bundy’s deluded strategy; an NW music legend at 93; and America’s glut of under-qualified white people in high places.

MISCmedia MAIL for 4/26/16
Apr 25th, 2016 by Clark Humphrey

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.

MISCmedia MAIL for 4/11/16
Apr 10th, 2016 by Clark Humphrey

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.

 

MISCmedia MAIL for 4/1/16
Mar 31st, 2016 by Clark Humphrey

Our promise: No “funny” fake headlines! In (presumably) “real” news: Another (non-lethal) “Ducks” crash; a family squabble keeps a historic corner un-re-developed (for now); another company wants “job saving” tax breaks; equality for soccer women; and scores of weekend things to do.
