10/14/19: PREVENTING PAIN
Oct 13th, 2019 by Clark Humphrey

A rally to stop shootings; a task force blames both Boeing, FAA for letting the MAX fly; math isn’t racist but the way it’s taught can be; so much housing being built around here, so little of it ‘affordable.’

10/7/19: BEING THE FUTURE
Oct 6th, 2019 by Clark Humphrey

Young activists’ ideas become an art exhibit; the local CEO inside the Ukraine affair; Boats Afloat Show floats away to Everett; Seattle’s biggest ‘soot polluter’ is a recycling plant.

8/8/19: HOW MEGA WAS MY BLOCK?
Aug 7th, 2019 by Clark Humphrey

A giant, complex deal for the city-owned Mercer tract; more primary-election fallout; a China trade war could devastate Washington farmers; FedEx Ground says goodbye to Amazon.

6/20/19: LOVE IS AN ACT OF DEFIANCE
Jun 20th, 2019 by Clark Humphrey

More attacks on Pride Month art installations; ‘Sully’ speaks on the 737 MAX crisis; a new program invites techies to invest in affordable housing; turning water (very indirectly) into diamonds.

10/30/18: DUNGEONS & DIVERSITY
Oct 29th, 2018 by Clark Humphrey

Making Dungeons & Dragons less mono-gendered; the death of a local jazz legend; prayers for healing and compassion at a Seattle synagogue; a bike-share company wants to add cars.

7/19/18: MAKING TOMORROW COOL AGAIN
Jul 18th, 2018 by Clark Humphrey

Fake land-use signs for imaginary developments; Olympia’s not the worst town for jobs after all; seven separated refugee kids are detained in WA; could climate change kill the Internet?

3/26/18: MARCHING AS TO PEACE
Mar 25th, 2018 by Clark Humphrey

Scenes from the March for Our Lives; for-profit immigration jail vs. Tacoma; Green Lake fish & chips stand not ‘landmarked’; what’s really behind the Michael Bennett indictment?

12/15/17: WHAT’S SO FUNNY ‘BOUT…?
Dec 14th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

In your big weekend MISCmedia MAIL entry: Fighting the net-neutrality repeal; money reasons behind the potential big hospital merger; blacks in tech forming their own networks; a message of peace at a time of turmoil.

MISCmedia MAIL FOR 4/17/17: A PALER SHADE OF WHITE?
Apr 16th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

Today at MISCmedia MAIL, thousands gathered in Seattle to support Black Lives Matter, most all of them white. Also: people who aren’t the Seattle Times editorial board want Ed Murray to quit; the Mariners start winning; the Army helps save fish by killing birds; and what Easter (and its pagan precursors) mean today.

MISCmedia MAIL FOR 4/14/17: THE BIG SOG
Apr 13th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

What comes after heavy winter precipitation? Heavy spring flooding, of course. We additionally view the spreading hunger strike at the immigration jail; transit fans against proposed ST3 funding cuts; Microsoft wanting to buy its own (mostly “renewable”) electricity; shout-outs against federal cuts to farms and cancer scientists; and the usual gazillion weekend events listings.

4/10/17: HOW THINGS WERE THEN
Apr 9th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

Today at MISCmedia MAIL, we’re reminded that intergenerational sex was common in the gay-male scene at, or at least shortly before, the time Ed Murray was allegedly involved in it. Also: a high-tech way to burn trash; even more Boeing state tax breaks; and they love us in France!

MISCmedia MAIL FOR 1/31/17: THIS WASHINGTON STRIKES BACK
Jan 30th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

Gov. Inslee and Attorney General Ferguson are becoming national heroes for speaking truth to cruelty. A lot of other folk are also speaking out, ranging from Jeff Bezos to Amanda Knox. We’ve also got Tim Eyman vs. the Olympia GOP; memories of Tacoma’s anti-Chinese expulsion; Gonzaga reaching #1 in men’s basketball; and a once-prestigious candy brand sold off.

THE MARCH OF (IT’S ABOUT) TIME
Jan 22nd, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

Well, that was certainly a relief.

It was exactly what we all needed.

P1140420 copy

A massive, clear, emphatic statement of NO! to the authoritarian DC regime—that was also a YES! to a completely different way of looking at, and doing, things.

A way with real “family values”.

A way that values people, even if they’re not billionaire campaign contributors.

Now comes the hard part: translating the Womxn’s Marches’ inclusive, positive alternative worldview into specific short- and long-term actions; in DC, in every state capital, in every Congressional and Legislative district. Nobody left behind.

P1140391 copy

I’ve been particularly obsessing about one thing Madonna said at the DC rally: “Welcome to the revolution of love.”

Could Bikini Kill’s “Revolution Girl Style Now” be about to come true?

MISCmedia MAIL for 8/8/16: KEEPING A LIGHT ON
Aug 7th, 2016 by Clark Humphrey

There was a lot on the water this weekend: The fast boats on Lake Washington, a beached whale at Fauntleroy, and especially the annual Hiroshima remembrance on Green Lake. Additional topics today include the Dead Baby bike spectacle; determining whether anyone’s to blame for the Oso landslide; dying trees statewide; anti-police window stickers; and the Mariners winning big on Griffey tribute weekend.

MISCmedia MAIL for 11/16/15
Nov 16th, 2015 by Clark Humphrey

The world goes on, and so does MISCmedia MAIL. Today: Remembering Paris; trying to forget the Seahawks game; a college basketball game called due to dangerous (indoor) conditions; and suburban subdivisions are still being built.
