4/12/18: COOKING UP A STORM
Apr 11th, 2018 by Clark Humphrey

Saving baking arts at South Seattle College; what’s wrong with closing sex-work websites; coastal oil drilling’s now less likely; protests at wannabe Amazon HQ2 cities.

3/5/18: THREE CHORDS AND FORTY YEARS
Mar 5th, 2018 by Clark Humphrey

A Seattle punk-scene reunion; Sound Transit funds still imperiled; hunger-strike ICE detainee out of solitary; downtown Tacoma gets upscaled.

3/2/18: END OF THE ROAD
Mar 2nd, 2018 by Clark Humphrey

How Seattle stopped more freeways; lawmaker-secrecy vetoed; NHL ticket drive a smash; there’s still comics (and good comics at that) at ComiCon!

2/12/18: RACISTS: ‘WE’RE JUST LIKE MLK’
Feb 11th, 2018 by Clark Humphrey

Right-wing rally turns to nonsense; Amazon’s ‘Spheres of Panopticon’; another beloved cinema to be razed?; could Boeing v. Airbus turn ballistic?

1/26/18: TOURIST TRAPPINGS
Jan 25th, 2018 by Clark Humphrey

In your big weekend mail: Dave Grohl does his part for Seattle tourism; a filmmaker who was forbidden to make more films; workers sue a blueberry farm; more contamination found at Hanford; many weekend event listings.

11/22/17: IF IT’S NOT POLITICS…
Nov 21st, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

For your T-Day Eve perusal: ‘Other’ difficult holiday talk-topics; the local role in vinyl records’ comeback; searching for opioid-crisis solutions; plans for a Seattle AIDS memorial.

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).

7/17/17: ‘WHO”S THAT LADY
Jul 16th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

As the first “official” female Doctor Who lead is announced, MISCmedia MAIL remembers the local woman who starred in several DW fan films. Also: Past allegations against Ed Murray revealed; a war hero facing deportation; the miracle of cross-laminated timber; and a neighbor’s dispute gets taken to Google Earth.

7/5/17: CHANGE THE LOCKS
Jul 4th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

Like a lot of our nation’s vital-infrastructure stuff, the century-old Ballard Locks could use a bit of refurbishing. Our post-holiday e-missive additionally examines the eco-threat of microfibers; the short career-life of techies; and why “resistance is patriotic.”

7/3/17: THE BIG REVEAL
Jul 2nd, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

We’ve finally gotten to see the Olympia sausage factory’s freshly-ground state budget, and it’s about as much a mess as you’d expect. Our between-the-holidays missive also brings up a 1st Ave. building with a storied past but not much of a future; Inslee refusing the White House’s voter-suppression drive; a potential threat to many existing homeless shelters; and thoughts by an old Roman about patriotism and its abuse.

6/7/17: THE LAST REEL?
Jun 6th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

Wednesday’s MISCmedia MAIL doesn’t know any more than you about the sudden closure of the classic Guild 45th and Seven Gables cinemas. We do know a little about another police-brutality settlement; the International District’s “upzone” moving forward; what white liberals don’t “get” about the whole Evergreen State College to-do; and our big, boistrous birthday party (tomorrow, Thursday 6/8/17, at the tony Two Bells!).

6/6/17: POP GOES THE TAX BILL
Jun 6th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

MISCmedia MAIL raises a glass of Real Soda in Real Bottles to the enactment of the sugary-pop tax. Other observations view the incredibly shrinking Store Formerly Known as the Bon Marché; local corporate giants vowing to keep fighting climate change; big stuff coming to the Seattle Art Fair; and what you probably haven’t heard about the Evergreen State College controversies.

5/18/17: THE BIG-BIG-BIG PICTURE
May 17th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

It’s that time of year again. That occasion when we’re reminded of larger-than-life sights, sounds, and dramatic spectacle. MISCmedia MAIL denotes this today, as well as: the recent uproar over a local, modern “family slave” saga; Kshama Sawant’s “Socialist muscle”; another Seattle federal judge striking another blow against bigotry; and a bear in a tree.

5/11/17: HOW UP WAS MY STREAM
May 10th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

Thursday’s MISCmedia MAIL ponders the viability of events like the Upstream Music Fest; examines what Ed Murray might be able to do in his remaining eight months; notes outrage over racist/sexist characterizations in a play’s audition notice (and perhaps also in the play itself); and finds sex-worker prosecutions on the rise despite an official change in city policy.

4/27/17: SENSE STOPPED BEING MADE
Apr 26th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

Our Thursday newsletter commences with a memory of Jonathan Demme. It continues with a loved but closing indie home-garden store; a vaguely defined new anti-homelessness crusade; what’s really behind those $425 jeans; and a fond adieu to Beast Mode.
