MISCmedia MAIL for 11/11/16: LEST WE FORGET
Nov 10th, 2016 by Clark Humphrey

We end a bad, terrible, horrible, not-good week with a Veterans Day remembrance and many calls for solidarity, action, and empathy. Also the usual dozens of weekend event possibilities, and the death of a music legend.

MISCmedia MAIL for 11/10/16: TAKING IT TO THE STREETS
Nov 9th, 2016 by Clark Humphrey

Yep, today’s installment, like yesterday’s, is mostly about reactions to the potentially worst thing to happen to our nation in 1.5 decades; including the faces and voices of the many among us who outspokenly resist.

MISCmedia MAIL for 11/9/16: THE MORNING AFTER
Nov 8th, 2016 by Clark Humphrey

You all know the big story of the day, and how it will have a “half-life” for days and years to come. But we’ve also got more upbeat stuff, like stuff about keeping sewage out of the Sound; a jury’s defiant statement against racist policing; and how “mislabeled” seafood might be better for the planet than the real stuff.

MISCmedia MAIL for 11/8/16: THE MORNING BEFORE THE MORNING AFTER
Nov 7th, 2016 by Clark Humphrey

It’s the last day to save the American democracy as we know it. You’ve no excuse to not do your part. Once you’ve done that, you can read here about the guerrilla beautification of a vacant lot off Aurora Ave.; the return of the coal-train fights; Boeing’s attrition of skilled workers; potentially scary news about sexual assault rates; and the Seahawks barely pulling one off.

MISCmedia MAIL for 11/7/16: A CLARIFICATION AND A PLEA
Nov 6th, 2016 by Clark Humphrey

We really, really want you to vote if you haven’t already, for reasons that apparently aren’t as painfully obvious as they should be. Further subjects this day include the status of “Mini Mart City Park” and of the big 23rd Avenue street disruption; NW places at risk from even a “small one” earthquake; and the local connection to a late synth-pop pioneer.

MISCmedia MAIL for 11/2/16: POKEBALLS WITH A PURPOSE
Nov 1st, 2016 by Clark Humphrey

Mukilteo inventors have designed a sturdy, spherical refuge for humans in case of tsunami. Further subjects today include a really wide waterfront highway plan and its discontents; Paul Allen’s settlement over his mega-yacht’s coral-reef trashing; Amazon’s real-life bookstore quietly raising its prices (to non-“Prime” people); and an opera with only one man and one woman playing one role.

MISCmedia MAIL for 11/1/16
Oct 31st, 2016 by Clark Humphrey

A new month, and the last week of Campaign 2016, have arrived; and we study little-kid ghost sightings; icky stuff from our road surfaces that gets into our waters; alleged racism in WSU student discipline; two more doomed local bars; and an idea to replace KeyArena with housing.

MISCmedia MAIL for 10/27/16: GORILLA MY DREAMS
Oct 27th, 2016 by Clark Humphrey

Ivan, the late discount-store caged gorilla, now stands proud and free as a statue. Among further Thursday topics: Attack ads come to local political races at last; Providence hospitals stop using religion as an excuse to stiff worker pensions; some Sonics Arena opponents still oppose it; and “socially responsible” video games.

MISCmedia MAIL for 10/26/16: A NEW GAME?
Oct 25th, 2016 by Clark Humphrey

Chris Hansen now says he can build a basketball and/or hockey arena without tax $$. Other stuff today:  Google assembles its own e-tail program; more landlords kick out Section 8 tenants; a lawyer turned slam poet; and the Old Spaghetti Factory will serve its last Spumoni in December.

MISCmedia MAIL for 10/25/16: CUBS REPORTER
Oct 24th, 2016 by Clark Humphrey

There’s a baseball stadium that’s been in use for 103 years, none of which featured a championship home team. But it might soon. Closer to home, we mention attempts to heal the state’s political divisions (or at least understand them); a bus-shelter removal plan put on hold; a search for an alert system for sexual-assault attackees; and a guy turning unwanted LPs into visual art. Plus: the death of America’s most hate-filled cartoonist.

MISCmedia MAIL for 10/18/16: FROM FIFE WITH LOVE
Oct 17th, 2016 by Clark Humphrey

In our daily e-missive this day: Our state’s ex-first lady speaks out on sexual harassment and its apologists; the Ace Hotel founder’s kids demand their fair share; an architect suggests we put affordable housing on top of I-5 (instead of just a bigger Freeway Park); the landlord lobby successfully delays the move-in-fee cap; and a Pierce County institution comes to Seattle (spoiler: it’s a burger joint).

MISCmedia MAIL for 10/17/16: APOCALYPSE NOT NOW
Oct 16th, 2016 by Clark Humphrey

So you stocked up on canned goods, canceled your weekend plans, and all for just a few minutes of torrential downpour followed by the usual autumn sogginess. (Turns out the real storm here was at Friday’s homeless-bill hearing.) We additionally talk about Hope Solo’s possible next career move; a gay-rights garden planned for Broadway; a sidewalk with solar panels; how to make the police force more diverse; and an old, old town with a new name.

MISCmesia MAIL for 10/11/16: CHECKS, UNBALANCED?
Oct 10th, 2016 by Clark Humphrey

A black woman claims she was subjected to uncalled-for “scrutiny” when she tried to open a bank account in Seattle; the bank says in response that it’s that mean to everybody. Further subjects this day include lawyers vs. closed “public” hearings; women in video games struggling for respect; Belltown’s most fiscally troubled tower project is “on” again; another Oso legal settlement; and yet more backlash against brutal sexist talk and its excusers.

MISCmedia MAIL for 10/10/16: AN UNTETHERED (EX-) ANCHOR
Oct 9th, 2016 by Clark Humphrey

Former local TV news star turned GOP state boss Susan Hutchison defends the indefensible remarks of a certain Presidential candidate. We additionally think about the rival homelessness plans and their implications (real and imagined); saving some of the “ramps to nowhere”; a police-reform plan presented; and the sudden death of an artist/teacher/shaman.

MISCmedia MAIL for 10/7/16: HERE COMES THE RAIN AGAIN
Oct 6th, 2016 by Clark Humphrey

Serious weather’s coming to this corner of the nation (though not nearly as deadly as the weather in the opposite corner). As we wait for the storm to pass (if it even shows here), read up about Amazon moving into space built for that previous “shop at home” king; Sound Transit’s booming popularity; a video-game giant accused of aiding online-gambling sites; a victory for oil-train foes; and more school-funding fuming.
