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.

8/11/17: REGION OF BOOM
Aug 11th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

Our big weekend MISCmedia MAIL leads off with the discovery of ginormous magma pools beneath the Cascades, just ready to spew forth. Among our other (NOT necessarily lighter) topics: the future of Nikkita Oliver and her movement; a suit against Ride the Ducks’ owner; fiscal trouble for our “other” local, woman-founded, sex-toy retailer; and Cobain-related blather re-purposed as Cornell-related blather.

8/4/17: CHOKIN’
Aug 4th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

Dry your smog-affected eyes long enough to read a Friday MISCmedia MAIL containing info about the nasty air and the big fires that caused it; what will or won’t be at the Hanford national historic park; more primary-election results; and Boeing test pilots’ elaborate stunt.

7/24/17: FLAGGING
Jul 24th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

Another MISCMedia MAIL week starts with an exhibit of altered flags for an altered nation. It goes on to discuss two waterfront fires; questionable words of support for a tent city; men’s pro basketball coming back to Seattle (in a way); and another mistake in impersonally-designed “personal statement” products.

7/21/17: WHEN YOU SAY SPUD…
Jul 21st, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

There’s a new airline (with an old name) coming to Sea-Tac; the Legislature split without all its work done; anti-abortion-sermon spaces can’t pretend to be medical clinics (at least not here); and the 747 has one more potential use after all. But the big story in today’s MISCmedia MAIL: Spud Fish & Chips at Green Lake is going away for luxury apartments.

7/8/17: CRUISING ANOTHER ‘AURORA’
Jul 18th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

Many of us got to see the Northern Lights around here recently. In more down-to-earth topics, Ed Murray’s not going away; preservationists compare ID “upzoning” to the WWII internments; a rescued orca’s now a mom; and a developer wants to build 11 apartments on a 32-foot-wide lot.

7/6/17: THE KALAKALA LIVES! (SORT OF)
Jul 6th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

Thursday’s MISCmedia MAIL starts with good news: Pieces of the ferry Kalakala were saved, and may come soon to an art installation near you. Also: cracks start appearing in the Legislature’s state-budget kludge; STD cases are on the rise; a tiki bar gets targeted by “cultural appropriation” charges; and one guy had a really dumb idea how to get the best view of the fireworks.

6/23/17: PRIDE VS. PREJUDICE
Jun 23rd, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

The Pride Parade and rally have a different mission this year, as you probably expect. Your big weekend MISCmedia MAIL briefly mentions this, and also touches on still more Charleena Lyles fallout; local reactions to the deliberate disaster that is the health-care repeal plan; the men from our state who helped the CIA craft its torture techniques; and who a Seattle mini-park near a “dump” should be named after (one guess).

6/21/17: ‘SAY HER NAME’
Jun 21st, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

Multiple vigils and marches called for justice for Charleena Lyles. Also in MISCmedia MAIL: a labor victory for strippers (that could set a precedent for other “independent contractors”); Teatro ZinZanni redux; another ICE-jail hunger strike; and the long, drawn-out demise of a great local product.

6/14/17: TAKE ME OUT TO THE ____
Jun 13th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

The Mariners’ stadium’s getting a new name. We can’t choose it, but we can sure think up fun suggestions. Other topics at MISCmedia MAIL today: an exhibit on third-world women’s progress; racial disparities in health care; widely differing views on the homeless-voucher plan; and a key downtown building’s finally getting redone.

6/9/17: FUN FLIES WHEN YOU’RE HAVING TIME
Jun 9th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

The third year of MISCmedia MAIL begins with a few random memories of my time on this earth. It goes on to discuss an historic big painting you’ve got to see; Boeing’s research into pilot-free planes; an Islamophobic rally moved from Portland to Seattle; and the usual zillion event listings.

5/23/17: POLICING THE POLICE
May 22nd, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

After more than four years, we’re close to a permanent police-oversight system. MISCmedia MAIL today also discusses the potential hypocrisy of taxing pop in Latte Land; rapid rehousing’s potential shortcomings; a Seahawk’s feud with a Seattle Times writer; and a word for Manchester (by the sea).

5/19/17: FALLEN ON BLACK DAYS
May 19th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

As you’d expect, we talk a lot in today’s MISCmedia MAIL about Chris Cornell’s life, death, and legacy. Plus: more on the “My Family’s Slave” controversy; Ed Murray’s accuser wanting a trial anywhere but here; Mount St. Helens memories; and the usual plethora of weekend events.

5/10/17: THE WALKING ED
May 9th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

Ed Murray’s out—or rather he will be out as mayor, in December. ‘Til then, he’s here-but-not-here. We also look today at a big scare at Hanford; a women’s shelter getting a big donation; just how big microbeers are here; and Steve Jobs: the Opera.

5/9/17: MAYOR MAY OR MAY NOT
May 8th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

In MISCmedia MAIL: We still don’t know for sure whether Ed Murray will end his re-election drive today; the feds try to stop a big local pro-immigrant legal group; KeyArena will have to be rebuilt with or without major pro sports; arrests at an anti-pipeline protest; and can the new Nordic Heritage Museum encourage America to become more like modern Scandinavia?
