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 7/22/16: CRIMES AGAINST CULTURE
Jul 21st, 2016 by Clark Humphrey

In our weekend e-missive: Zara’s stealing designs from artists here and worldwide; the end of the UW’s li’l piece of brutalism; Seattle rents keep getting more obscene; a boatload of weekend activity listings; and a brief message as political/racial stuff gets truly nasty.

MISCmedia MAIL for 7/21/16: THE MOST SCENIC GROUND ZERO
Jul 20th, 2016 by Clark Humphrey

What activists in the ’70s couldn’t stop is still with us, a nuclear-sub base on the Sound. Also with us: gentrification in the CD marches on; a river’s being moved away from a highway; YouTube’s trans stars; and a (different) retro video game inspires a new micro-park.

MISCmedia MAIL for 7/20/16: SOUNDS AND SIGHTS
Jul 20th, 2016 by Clark Humphrey

KCTS is streaming the must-see doc about pioneer local rock photog Jini Dellaccio. Plus: a “racial reparations”-themed funding site; the notion that every Seattleite needs and always will need a private car; Tukwila police lawsuits; and a real made-in-Seattle feature film for the first time in how long?

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.”

MISACmedia MAIL for 7/15/17: THE ‘NEW NORMAL’
Jul 15th, 2016 by Clark Humphrey

No, we (not even the whites among us) can or should stop the discussion about race, fear, and inequality. Also today: Police run a fake massage parlor in the U District; ex-teens remember a now-dying shopping mall; KPLU needs a new name (that some other station isn’t using); how much “getting big money out of politics” costs; and the usual scads of weekend things and stuff.

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 7/13/16: 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 7/5/16: 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!

MISCmedia MAIL for 6/30/16: HOUSE MUSIC
Jun 29th, 2016 by Clark Humphrey

Local media ran a bunch of stuff Wednesday about homelessness, and potential answers to it. We round up some of the best of these pieces. Also: Eyman scolded again; an eco-research boat called “SoundGuardian;” safety/seals.

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 6/27/16: OUR PRIDE IS SHOWING
Jun 26th, 2016 by Clark Humphrey

It was crowded, it was defiant, it was the post-Orlando Pride Parade. We also take a look-see at both sides in the Waterfront Park disagreement using the same slogan; a food shortage for whales; tech’s woman shortage even bigger in artificial intelligence; Bill Clinton’s unpublicized local visit; and the Mariners’ current “thinness.”

MISCmedia MAIL FOR 6/24/16: ANTHROPOMORPHIC SHIPPING BOXES
Jun 23rd, 2016 by Clark Humphrey

The big anti-Amazon blogger’s making a kids’ picture book with a talking shipping box representing the company. We also examine the origin’s of Seattle’s newest newcomers; worry about hate-crime stats; listen to a Muslim “non-binary queer” person; mourn one of Belltown’s last pre-upscale businesses; and begin to lose patience with the miserable Mariners.

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.
