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.

8/22/17: THERE WENT THE SUN
Aug 21st, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

The temperature cooled significantly. The outdoor light looked like a movie “day for night” shot. And people glimpsed the realms beyond our own world. Now it’s back to the dog daze o’ summer, when MISCmedia MAIL mentions a call for a “centrist” political movement (as if we don’t already have one); a national media article claiming some Seattleites like to live in their cars (?); prison time for a local Ponzi-schemer; and a big trans convention coming to town.

8/21/17: THERE GOES THE SUN
Aug 20th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

Today’s forecast: Sunny, then strangely not-sunny, then sunny again. Our attention today also wanders to a Republican who really dislikes the DC Republican regime; Aberdeen as even more down-n’-out than it was in Cobain’s time; a Sounders win that’s about as dramatic as they get; and the death of one of America’s great humanitarians (and also of Jerry Lewis).

8/17/17: DOWN THE PIKE
Aug 16th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

Let us recall another Seattle progressive triumph, in an age of another not-all-there Republican president. It’s the late John Stamets’ 1987 pix of the restored Pike Place Market, now on display again. Among our other topics this day: wildfires rage in Grant County; concrete-truck drivers go on strike; a walking trail’s set to reopen; and more local folk have more reaction to the ongoing sociopolitical meltdown.

8/7/17: STATE OF THE ART (OF THE STATE)
Aug 7th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

Seattle’s big, annual arts-travaganzas have come and gone, with subjects of identity and resistance scattered throughout. We touch upon that in Monday’s missive, as well as the sad decline of the hydros; alleged “shaming” harassment at an officially “inclusive” fandom convention; a phony Starbucks “meme” graphic; and how much Nikkita Oliver may have already changed local politics.
