9/24/18: POLE POSITIONS
Sep 23rd, 2018 by Clark Humphrey

Totem poles aren’t really of local origin (so should we remove them?); more claims against State Rep. Martin Manweller; a Seattle radio legend dies.

9/12/18: RIDERS ON THE, WELL, YOU KNOW…
Sep 11th, 2018 by Clark Humphrey

Sue Bird has fun fanning the flames of Storm fever; finding Burt Reynolds’ Cosmo pose in Tlingit native art; Dori Monson’s latest pathetic tirade.

8/17/18: PEAS PROTEIN, COLD
Aug 16th, 2018 by Clark Humphrey

Starbucks’ ‘craziest’ idea yet; Portland police chief taunts antifa protesters; can bad air get carbon fee passed?; remembering Aretha Franklin.

8/13/18: UP, THEN DOWN
Aug 12th, 2018 by Clark Humphrey

Trying to understand the Sea-Tac plane theft/crash; Sub Pop brings fun back to music festivals; sick orca improving; almost 200 stars support saving the Showbox.

7/12/18: TEMPLE, DOOMED
Jul 12th, 2018 by Clark Humphrey

Another grand U District church building’s about to go away; a beloved local worker’s taken by ICE agents; is Seattle real estate crash-bound, or is that just wishful thinking?

6/12/18: OFF WITH THEIR ‘HEAD’
Jun 11th, 2018 by Clark Humphrey

Seattle ‘head tax’ dies after one month; farmers vs. tariffs; tribes win culverts-vs.-salmon suit; city could hire private bus operators.

5/25/18: THE END OF LONELY STREET, REDUX
May 24th, 2018 by Clark Humphrey

Art installations describe life in a lonesome town; the McKinsey report’s non-non-existence; Seattle’s ‘whiteness problem’; the usual scads of weekend events.

5/1/18: THE CHORDS OF HERSTORY
Apr 30th, 2018 by Clark Humphrey

Connecting the early UK female punks to the Oly riot grrrls; counting every native plant and animal here; what’s certain to happen on May Day.

3/16/18: I HAVE (THEY WANT) THE POWER!
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.

1/29/18: STATE OF THE ART OF THE STATE

King County Council wants to retake control of 4Culture; Chinatown-Intl. District park’s hi-tech addition; another local radio revivalist passes.

12/22/17: JESUS WAS WAY COOL
Dec 21st, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

Our pre-holiday message includes stuff about Bob Ferguson vs. Comcast; derailment survivors vs. Amtrak et al.; a trans man vs. Providence Swedish; and the death of our premier radio-drama revivalist.

9/21/17: NOT A DAY TO CELEBRATE
Sep 21st, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

The company formerly known as Madison Park Greetings won’t issue more of its hip/cute greeting cards, now that its out-of-state buyer suddenly shut the whole operation down. In further reading today: Michael Bennett’s fan base; love for the rainy season’s start; a Swedish left-activist infiltrates a Seattle “alt-right” meeting; and a local online radio station “gets real.”

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.

MISCmedia MAIL FOR 4/11/17: THE SHIRT OFF (ER, ON) HIS BACK
Apr 10th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

Jeff Ament took Pearl Jam’s Rock n’ Roll Hall of Fame fete to silently support some of the great acts still not in there. We additionally look at more (non-) developments in the Murray case; Herbold’s unsuccessful drive for additional HALA concessions; the failed revival of a beloved local bakery firm; and a Hendrix “Shadow Wave Wall.”

4/6/17: POP FOR A COP
Apr 6th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

Alas, handing cans of Pepsi to cops at protests probably won’t save the world. Shocking, I know. But there are more realistic topics to discuss today, including nice Canadians having border trouble; a plea to try and get more “affordable” units under the HALA plan; physicians saving refugees from being sent home to die; and Amazon vs. the Girl Scouts.
