Mar 15th, 2018 by Clark Humphrey

Bitcoin ‘miners’ want a LOT of our electricity; Maru Mora Villalpando’s day in court; iHeart Meida goes bust; what St. Pat’s really means.

2/28/18: LONG (OR SHORT) LIVE THE ‘KINGS’

2/13/18: (RICHARD) SHERMAN’S MARCH
Feb 12th, 2018 by Clark Humphrey

An outspoken Seahawk preaches understanding; how awful the proposed federal budget is on just about everything; saving a mural in a ‘mothballed’ building.

1/4/18: WHAT’S IN A (FISHY) NAME?
Jan 3rd, 2018 by Clark Humphrey

Private parties trademark potential hockey-team names; a rare-book dealer’s sudden death; IBM sues Expedia; Motel 6 allegedly “kept a light on” for ICE agents.

12/26/17: THE SEASON FOR THE REASON

Nov 20th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

Your Tuesday report mentions the local woman behind ‘Barbie’s Dream Hearse’; city budget details; a Memorial Stadium rebuild plan; a block to the latest threat to sanctuary cities; and the French media re-rediscovering Seattle.

10/20/17: THE WEEKLY WASH(OUT)
Oct 20th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

10/3/17: TO LIVE LIKE A REFUGEE
Oct 3rd, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

On this day of sorrows, we discuss a VR ‘experience’ with a message; deadly street pills; and whether this latest sick tragedy will FINALLY lead to action.

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.

8/16/17: OUR NEW BOT OVERLORDS?
Aug 15th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

It’s hard, at this time of raging hate/stupidity, to think of other potential threats to civilization; but one biz tycooon sez we oughta worry about artificial-intelligence “bots” becoming sentient enough to take over. Our other topics this Wednesday include Rep. Jayapal’s call for a White House de-Nazification; a pro-DACA rally; the final (at last) mayoral-primary result; and good news for any of you who’ve subscribed to these e-missives but not always gotten them.

8/8/18: MAJORITY REPORT
Aug 7th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

We ARE the political majority, those of us who oppose the brutal/reactionary DC regime—even if we don’t all belong to the same demographic “tribe,” even if we disagree on most everything else. Meanwhile back in local stuff, we view a happy ending to the saga of the ZAPP zine collection; a (sadly predictable) twist in the GeekGirlCon dustup; Nikkita Oliver’s continuing last stand; and America discovering Seattle’s most joyous TV personality.

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.

8/3/17: SMOKE GETS IN YOUR EYES
Aug 3rd, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

These here days of summer may or may not be lazy or crazy, but they sure are hazy. Nevertheless, we take some Visine so we can look at a lack of change in mayoral balloting; landmark designation for the 22-year-old KeyArena; a protest against Post Office job cuts; and a guy in a bear suit serving up $200-a-plate dinners.

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.
