1/31/18: USING THEIR NOODLE
Jan 30th, 2018 by Clark Humphrey

A Chinese-food maker overcomes automated ‘perfection’; Seattle’s in the electric-car charging biz; school bus drivers to strike; boos for Bill Nye for going to the State of the Union speech.

12/28/17: ALL THAT, WELL, YOU KNOW…
Dec 27th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

The year’s penultimate MISCmedia MAIL discusses great photos of a long-gone Seattle few people were aware of when it was around; a local underwear biz with sketchy (not in a good way) ads; cyclists suing Sound Transit; and Jews helping Muslims.

12/4/17: IN THE CARDS
Dec 3rd, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

Starting your news week: The woman behind a political card game; local reactions to GOP tax-scam bill; fish-farm salmon still out there; school funding solved at last?

11/27/17: OH, HENRY
Nov 27th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

Starting your week off: A semi-psych Henry mural outside a pot shop can legally stay; big rain/winds are coming back; why gay-rights orgs shouldn’t settle for an all-white ‘rainbow.’

11/8/17: ELECTION NIGHT IN THE BIZARRO WORLD
Nov 8th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

The “business progressive” leads for mayor; so do the leftish-leaning candidates for sheriff and state Senate; 77 years since Galloping Gertie; the Boeing 747’s last hurrah.

11/3/17: SLEEPING IN
Nov 3rd, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

In your big weekend news: ‘Sleep-in’ and ‘die-in’ actions for the homeless; how open-source software can be even more ‘bro’-heavy than corporate code; a private ferry to Renton?

10/24/17: HOW TO DEPRESS YOUR CHILDREN
Oct 24th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

For Tuesday: A bad Halloween costume choice; a suspicious package turns out to contain Top Ramen; conservative “comedy” stereotyping Seattle liberals.

10/17/17: THE FINAL LAP?
Oct 17th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

As wintery weather sets in, MISCmedia MAIL’s topics include Cafe Racer’s possible last days; mining vs. salmon in Alaska; Amazon taking most of the ex-Bon Marché building; and the high cost of cheap stuff.

10/16/17: DISSING DEVOS
Oct 16th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

We begin another week of MISCmedia MAIL looking at people protesting a defamer of public education; Portland cops vs duct-taped protesters; and the Sounders doing what UW and WSU football couldn’t.

11/11/17: THEIR CUP RUNNETH OVER
Oct 11th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

In your midweek missive: Starbucks’ non-recyclable packaging protested by ‘Cup Monster’; cancer cure in 8 years?; UW Republicans’ fake “Antifa” posters; it’s larch-foliage season!

9/14/17: MAYOR MAY NOT
Sep 13th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

We’ve got our second mayor of the year, will get a third, and may get a fourth in between. MISCmedia MAIL covers this, as well as why Seattle shouldn’t bend over backwards to appease Amazon; how design and power intersect; a “re-brand” for PCC; and an elementary school not getting a “Satan Club” after all.

9/1/17: FIELD OF DARK DREAMS
Aug 31st, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

As for-real football season commences, an area high school tries to “go goth.” We also observe a new purse for the female-identifying Seahawks fan; more complaints about the school-funding deal; how an Idaho town de-Nazified itself; and the pre-gentrified days of Bumbershoot.

8/25/17: PLAY THAT FUNKO MUSIC
Aug 25th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

Today’s big weekend MISCmedia MAIL starts off with a remembrance of the great retail store of my youth, now become the great retail store for fandom folk from everywhere. It goes on to mention Paul Ryan’s not-that-persuasive speech at Boeing; whether an eco-group does or doesn’t have a racially-insensitive name; more Moon/Durkan verbal sparring; and the drive to protect website visitors’ IDs from White House demands.

8/24/17: A TIME OF THE SIGNS
Aug 23rd, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

A local artist’s putting up realistic-looking street signs, to gently remind folks of their worth. Today’s other subjects include a reminder of what real “national unity” will look like; stats on Amazon’s near-complete takeover of Seattle; a major Euro automaker potentially opening a US HQ here; and a lot of apartments on a really small lot.

8/23/17: ‘VOICE,’ BOXED
Aug 23rd, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

MISCmedia MAIL has to say goodbye to the original “alt weekly,” being turned from a newspaper into merely a “brand.” We also discuss why Breitbart still has (some) ads; the accidental release of a ton of “fish farm” fish into public waters; a beautiful makeover to a pivotal local park; and how a school can be segregated without looking like it.
