SAY, YOU THAT THING I’VE BEEN TALKIN’ ABOUT LATELY?
Aug 27th, 2016 by Clark Humphrey

So I’ve been hinting, occasionally loudly, about an old book of mine that I’ve been trying to get back out one of these years.

Well, it’s out now.

At this link.

Or at this link.

Get it now. Hope y’all like it.

Oh, there’ll also be an e-book version soon.

And a release party’s in the works, perhaps in October.

And we’re working on getting it into local stores. More on that later.

And if you want a signed copy, contact me direct.

MISCmedia MAIL for 8/9/16: ‘TERRACED’ ART
Aug 8th, 2016 by Clark Humphrey

This week marks 25 years of the ol’ WWW thang. But instead of getting caught up in nostalgia for Netscape and the sound of dial-up modems, we stay focused on the present day. Specifically, we observe anti-choice hustlers trying to get their paws on UW records; the Yesler Terrace redevelopment commissioning public art from one of its own residents; a Pioneer Square building finally getting redeveloped after being vacant almost a decade; good news for non-rich renters for once; and an electronic dance remix of “Spoonman” (why?).

MISACmedia MAIL for 7/15/17: THE ‘NEW NORMAL’
Jul 15th, 2016 by Clark Humphrey

No, we (not even the whites among us) can or should stop the discussion about race, fear, and inequality. Also today: Police run a fake massage parlor in the U District; ex-teens remember a now-dying shopping mall; KPLU needs a new name (that some other station isn’t using); how much “getting big money out of politics” costs; and the usual scads of weekend things and stuff.

MISCmedia MAIL FOR 6/24/16: ANTHROPOMORPHIC SHIPPING BOXES
Jun 23rd, 2016 by Clark Humphrey

The big anti-Amazon blogger’s making a kids’ picture book with a talking shipping box representing the company. We also examine the origin’s of Seattle’s newest newcomers; worry about hate-crime stats; listen to a Muslim “non-binary queer” person; mourn one of Belltown’s last pre-upscale businesses; and begin to lose patience with the miserable Mariners.

MISCmedia MAIL for 4/1/16
Mar 31st, 2016 by Clark Humphrey

Our promise: No “funny” fake headlines! In (presumably) “real” news: Another (non-lethal) “Ducks” crash; a family squabble keeps a historic corner un-re-developed (for now); another company wants “job saving” tax breaks; equality for soccer women; and scores of weekend things to do.

MISCmedia MAIL for 3/29/16
Mar 28th, 2016 by Clark Humphrey

Could we actually have the first real warm weather of the year? In any event, we’re discussing the potential for a state budget deal at long last; one of the many surviving J.P. “Patches Pals;” more about the West Seattle greenbelt tree thievery; drivers obsessed with hunting down temporary free parking; and a potential new craze in “startup religions.”

MISCmedia MAIL for 3/14/16
Mar 13th, 2016 by Clark Humphrey

We welcome Pi Day with still more wild weather; Legislative special-session guesses; memories of singer Ernestine Anderson; gold vs. salmon; and a debunked myth about the homeless.

MISCmedia MAIL for 3/4/16
Mar 4th, 2016 by Clark Humphrey

We enter March’s first weekend with an odd proposed compromise to historic-preservation activists; Seattle-saved WWII radio newscasts; the area’s second-most-hiring company (no, not them); sex workers speaking for themselves; how to make Wash. state even more irrelevant in Presidential nominations; and the usual bevy of weekend activities.

MISCmedia MAIl for 3/1/16
Feb 29th, 2016 by Clark Humphrey

Sooper Toosday finds us blathering about a racketeering suit against Mars Hill Church’s top brass; how to properly describe an alleged adult-woman/teenage-boy relationship; just how hard Russell Wilson’s “Good Man” clothes will be to find; and that ridiculously big container ship.

MISCmedia MAIL for 2/25/16
Feb 24th, 2016 by Clark Humphrey

Warm and dry weather’s expected to end today, but MISCmedia MAIL keeps going with lobbyists who want to keep your “biometric” data; the big Alaskan Way midrise project’s off again; another unlikely industry for a female chief executive; Amazon’s going “fashion forward;” and remembering when right-wing kitsch was considered funny.

MISCmedia MAIL for 2/17/16
Feb 17th, 2016 by Clark Humphrey

Remember the Seattle Center Arena?  It’s still there but not for long. Also in your midweek missive: Someone thinks moving into RVs is a serious solution to high rent; a “cis”-dressed dude claims the trans-restroom law lets him enter women’s locker rooms; the coal-export boom goes bust; and what part of town’s got the most Priuses (or is it Prii?).

MISCmedia MAIL for 2/10/16
Feb 9th, 2016 by Clark Humphrey

It’s Lent, but don’t give up your daily MISCmedia MAIL. Why, today alone we’ve got a plan to stop the Legislature’s pathetic-ness; differing views on the state “affordable” housing tax credit scheme; SPU students challenge white privilege; Amazon’s (alleged) big-big-big cargo plans; and an artwork honoring a Northwest legend.

MISCmedia MAIL for 2/8/16
Feb 7th, 2016 by Clark Humphrey

On the day after a quiet Super Sunday (around here), we discuss: The “real” roots of NW garage rock?, state Senate Republicans’ quasi-dirty tricks; a dam so old it didn’t need permits when it was built; the porno-biz roots of Seattle’s most notorious pot merchant; and the continuing speculation about Marshawn Lynch.

MISCmedia MAIL for 2/4/16
Feb 3rd, 2016 by Clark Humphrey

Our Thursday news rundown includes: Murray’s housing-levy details; making the Oregon occupiers pay for the law-enforcement work against them; Urban Outfitters claims the Navajo don’t own their own name; fast-food outlet drops franchise to escape franchise-level minimum wages; remembering a comedy patriarch.

MISCmedia MAIL for 1/8/16
Jan 7th, 2016 by Clark Humphrey

Our first Friday e-missive in three weeks, due to holiday schedules, includes: the resumption of Bertha tunnel digging; a comprehensive Seattle transit map (no, there really wasn’t one before); “concerned neighborhood” groups show their bigotries; tampons for charity; and the usual scads of weekend activity options.
