MISCmedia MAIL for 7/27/16: SCHMID HITS THE FAN(S)
Jul 27th, 2016 by Clark Humphrey

With Sounders FC’s only head coach given the symbolic sacrificial rite, soccer fans here have nowhere to look but up. Maybe. Plus: The TPP fracas and WTO nostalgia; SeaTac vs. the ex-Red Robin boss; an unlikely super-PAC candidate; and the early death of a Seattle actor who made it big in TV commercials.

MISCmedia MAIL for 7/26/16: THE NIXON WE LIKED
Jul 25th, 2016 by Clark Humphrey

It’s a sad day for fans of “ghost singer” and KOMO kids’ host Marni Nixon. We also think about a victory for a police whistleblower; a potential new name for Alaskan Way; the STILL unending road work on 23rd Avenue; attempts to pump up the local arts scene; and what the Seattle U sit-in protesters still want.

MISCmedia MAIL for 7/25/16: OH YOU ‘KID’
Jul 24th, 2016 by Clark Humphrey

There aren’t many people as universally admired, in and out of his line of work, than Ken Griffey Jr. We join a lot of other people honoring him on his Hall of Fame induction. We’ve also got stuff about another Bertha-related lawsuit; a victory for Seattle U activists; the death of Apodments®; and the time when the Tulalip Tribes outwitted He Who Must Not Be Named.

MISCmedia MAIL for 7/22/16: CRIMES AGAINST CULTURE
Jul 21st, 2016 by Clark Humphrey

In our weekend e-missive: Zara’s stealing designs from artists here and worldwide; the end of the UW’s li’l piece of brutalism; Seattle rents keep getting more obscene; a boatload of weekend activity listings; and a brief message as political/racial stuff gets truly nasty.

MISCmedia MAIL for 7/20/16: SOUNDS AND SIGHTS
Jul 20th, 2016 by Clark Humphrey

KCTS is streaming the must-see doc about pioneer local rock photog Jini Dellaccio. Plus: a “racial reparations”-themed funding site; the notion that every Seattleite needs and always will need a private car; Tukwila police lawsuits; and a real made-in-Seattle feature film for the first time in how long?

MISCmedia MAIL for 7/19/16: A WHOLE (POTENTIALLY) NEW BALL GAME
Jul 18th, 2016 by Clark Humphrey

On the 10th anniversary of the sale that doomed the Sonics, here’s a modest proposal: Instead of waiting (potentially forever) for the NBA’s brass to approve of Seattle’s existence, let’s start our own league!

Other topics this in your (for today at least) GOP-free newsletter include a battle over water in and near Leavenworth; Central Co-Op’s sudden Tacoma closure; another cleared-out encampment; and Boeing’s switch to “the cloud.”

MISCmedia MAIL for 7/14/16: COCA, CENTERED
Jul 13th, 2016 by Clark Humphrey

At how many different spots have I seen Center on Contemporary Art (COCA) shows? At least a dozen. Now they’ve got a space of their very own, at least for the medium-term. Additionally, we peer at ever-weirder attempts to tie in to Pokémon Go mania; a commercial-health-insurance rift; Black Lives Matter’s potential futures; Seattle’s last big “undeveloped” land tract saved; and Breanna Stewart speaking out for women’s sports at the ESPYs.

MISCmedia MAIL for 7/13/16: SPOGwatch
Jul 12th, 2016 by Clark Humphrey

The head of the Seattle police union, after scrubbing its social-media presence, has quit. Elsewhere, there’s nostalgia for when a teacher could buy a house here; the threat that climate change could bring even more people here; potential new life for an historic gay bar; and support for a local music legend.

MISCmedia MAIL for 7/12/17: YOU DON’T LOOK A DAY OVER 707
Jul 11th, 2016 by Clark Humphrey

Boeing turns 100 on the cusp of another boom, another bust, or perhaps both. In other topics: the instant-classic news photo from the streets of Baton Rouge; a car-company exec insists the only transportation we’ll ever need is cars; an electronic music fest rises from another’s cinders; new life for a beloved record store; and the perfect metaphoric name for Amazon’s domes.

MISCmedia MAIL for 7/11/16: THINGS YOU COULD DO
Jul 10th, 2016 by Clark Humphrey

We have many issues to discuss. Chief among them: the continued reaction to shocking brutality. Also: alleged retaliation against Hanford worker-safety demands; the continuing Western State Hospital crisis; a great artist/musician faces a horrid death; and at least one lighter bit.

MISCmedia MAIL for 7/8/17: THE VICIOUS CYCLE CONTINUES
Jul 8th, 2016 by Clark Humphrey

At the end of a week of horrid violence and counter-violence, we at least don’t have to deal with the anti-trans bigots for the moment. Other topics today include the sad case of a drug-stealing nurse; a Chinese design firm helps make a park in Seattle’s Intl. District; alleged progress in artificial intelligence; and a few hundred weekend event listings.

MISCmedia MAIL for 6/28/16: GOIN’ SOUTH?
Jun 27th, 2016 by Clark Humphrey

Could Amazon be establishing a new techie beachhead in Portland? Besides that, we view the huge Tulalip fireworks bazaar; celebrations for the Supreme Court’s abortion ruling; more trouble for prosecutor Mark Lindquist; a bigger Panama Canal’s existential threat to our seaports; and a change of heart on the Viaduct park initiative.

MISCmedia MAIL for 6/16/16: FOR THE BIRDS
Jun 16th, 2016 by Clark Humphrey

On a palindromic date we view evidence of “reverse molecules” in space; Tacoma’s downtown falcons; more Orlando reactions here and in DC; jail inmates allegedly forced to take drugs; the state’s regressive tax system used as a selling point for zillionaire homes; and a creepy “joke” by the anti-trans initiative boss.

MISCmedia MAIL for 6/10/16
Jun 9th, 2016 by Clark Humphrey

Plunging head-first into the weekend: More Tim Eyman trouble; the mayor’s latest prescription for homelessness; more accounts of public racism in Seattle; a drive to prevent future water-wasting export projects; and an LPGA champ’s new (non-golf) app.

MISCmedia MAIL for 6/9/16: YEAR TWO BEGINS
Jun 9th, 2016 by Clark Humphrey

First, thanks to all who came to our li’l soiree Wednesday and/or expressed their heartfelt wishes. Now: the news continues, with a tough break for Hope Solo; the Fremont parade wanting naked bicyclists to register as official participants; the first black Seafair Queen rediscovered; a lucid voice about youth homelessness; and Stuart Anderson going to the great steakhouse in the sky.
