MISCmedia MAIL for 5/26/16
May 25th, 2016 by Clark Humphrey

It’s the day before the big Mem-Day weekend, and the Mariners just won a home series! In other topics: The downtown power failure was our kind of non-injurous “disaster” story;  the Stranger wants you to go see places that no longer existed (or never did); Portland’s police chief’s caught in a gun-related lie; and Microsoft’s Nokia purchase meets an inauspicious endgame.

Another week begins, and we observe a suburban college-teachers’ strike; a gruesome crime against a high-school teacher; whether Tukwila’s really as dangerous as some national survey suggests; the Storm’s inauspicious home opener; and towers getting too close together.

SIFF begins today on a note of off-screen controversy. While you wait in line for your jumbo popcorn, read about the apparent resolution to the dueling Pride Parade airlines; the next occupant of the ex-Capitol Club/Bauhaus space; another punk legend’s passing; “Black Lives Matter” in Bellevue; and every nerd’s dream: clothes you don’t have to wash for weeks!

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.

Can a Jesuit humanities curriculum be a little less dead-white-guy centric? SU demonstrators say yes. Other items today discuss the miracle Mariners; the raccoon who knocked out power to thousands of homes; a local burger baron caught spreading bigotry on “social” media; keeping guns away from people who already aren’t supposed to have ’em; and plans to take on the oil biz again (as if it isn’t weakened enough).

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 5/9/16:
May 8th, 2016 by Clark Humphrey

A “slow news” weekend ends with the the Viaduct’s surprise early reopening (unless they’d secretly planned it this way all along). Also: Creamed Cornish?; Boeing’s greatest fiscal hits and misses; the potential start of another Wash. wildfire season; and how to sneak an arena proposal past today’s City Council.

Sheila E. won’t let personal tragedy interfere with work for Seattle’s young musicians. Also noteworthy today: Big tech fails in SR520 tolling; coal and oil export-terminal plans proceed despite industry upheavals; tacky, potentially racist Cinco de Mayo apparel; Seattle (er, Kent) is posed for a hockey championship; and Paul Allen’s new twist on “cross-marketing synergy.”

MISCmedia MAIL for 5/5/16

It’s (a potentially four-day) Cinco de Mayo, just as America’s most prominent Hispanophobe inches closer to the highest office in the land. In other subjects, sales of a tech-office staple take a dive; the Lynnwood lawyer with the sexist Tweets® against the City Council is already in trouble; the City contracts out homeless-removal to a private company; and Seattle’s biggest obsolete piece of office equipment’s moving.

MISCmedia MAIL for 4/29/16
Apr 29th, 2016 by Clark Humphrey

Welcome to Viageddon! And to another potential May Day of window-bustin! We also view a City attempt to keep snooping into garbage; a potential partial breakthrough in the Sodo arena fracas; drones maybe getting too close to whales; and the usual gazillion weekend activities including Indie Bookstore Day.

MISCmedia MAIL for 4/27/26
Apr 26th, 2016 by Clark Humphrey

The Mariners win again! (Against the hapless Astros but it still counts.) We also observe reiterated allegations against Bellevue High football; a very partial resolution in the Troy Kelley case; the year-long wait to tell Tacoma school kids about lead in the water; housing hyper-inflation getting worse; and a big-name movie financed (but not made) in Seattle.

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 3/28/16
Mar 28th, 2016 by Clark Humphrey

We’re back to the post-holiday daze, waiting for the dry and warm weather that’s been predicted, and reading about the mess that’s been the massive Metro-bus morphing; Portland encouraging the homeless to leave town; the living-wage movement’s progress; racist vandalism; and the premise that wildfires can be good for the rural economy.

MISCmedia MAIL for 3/21/16

Spring is here and so are we, with a NIMBY assailant playing the “victim” card; another potentially doomed movie palace; whether or not teachers really need more pay (spoiler: they do); crow brains; and the lovely new light-rail stations.

MISCmedia MAIL for 3/10/16
Mar 10th, 2016 by Clark Humphrey

Greenwood has been through disasters, natural and other, and will survive this one. We also mention what is and isn’t still alive in the Legislature; more LGBTQ folk gathering in smaller cities; Jeff Bezos’s vision of a future post-industrial planet; a beloved plant store’s potential end; and another loss to the NW music world.
