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 7/14/16: 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 6/30/16: HOUSE MUSIC
Jun 29th, 2016 by Clark Humphrey

Local media ran a bunch of stuff Wednesday about homelessness, and potential answers to it. We round up some of the best of these pieces. Also: Eyman scolded again; an eco-research boat called “SoundGuardian;” safety/seals.

MISCmedia MAIL for 6/29/16: LITTLE HOUSE ON THE CITYSCAPE?
Jun 28th, 2016 by Clark Humphrey

People love those “tiny houses” but don’t get to put ’em in most populated spots, where the “density” would be a particularly good thing. We’ve also got a look at one of our favorite local artists; congrats for KPLU’s hard-won independence; a warning about a vintage-fashion maven whose mobile shop got hijacked; a novel way to resign from your job; and a rare three-win night in local sports.

MISCmedia MAIL for 6/17/16: THE LONGEST DAY
Jun 16th, 2016 by Clark Humphrey

Our pre-Solstice Weekend e-missive hopes the Fremont paraders will honor LGBT defiance. We also espy a quarter-century of the Crocodile; not-that-rapid transit; The Jungle’s official landscape architect; Microsoft’s new “business-to-business” venture that’s NOT LinkedIn; and even more weekend activities than usual.

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 6/14/16: THE FALLOUT CONTINUES
Jun 13th, 2016 by Clark Humphrey

As reactions from the Orlando tragedy continue, we also look at Microsoft buying a popular but unprofitable dot-com; getting the ‘burbs to support downtown transit amenities; a proposed condo tower to be marketed to Chinese nationals; a new political “party” in Wash. state; and “locally sourced” electricity.

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.

MISCmedia MAIL for 6/7/16
Jun 6th, 2016 by Clark Humphrey

The potential last day of the current hot spell includes stuff about an all-gender, anti-“rape culture” march; another govt. whistleblower harassed; a local visit by “the inventor of the World Wide Web;” charter schools that are more “diverse” than nearby public schools; and a remembrance of the father of whale-capturing (and, indirectly, of whale awareness/protection).

MISCmedia MAIL for 6/6/16
Jun 5th, 2016 by Clark Humphrey

No six-six-(one)-six references in this e-missive. But you do get: A Catholic priest with a (female) spouse; the Oregon oil train disaster aftermath; your obligatory Ali remembrances; the UW’s latest spurning of non-techie courses; and a techie who scoffs (mistakenly, I believe) at regulating Airbnb.

MISCmedia MAIL for 6/3/16
Jun 2nd, 2016 by Clark Humphrey

The Mariners were down by 10 runs for the second night in a row. For the first night in a row, that’s not how it ended. Our weekend report also includes: New art-life for a closed gallery space; a Blue Angels flight ends tragically; a planned “bicycle of the future” will have to wait a while; the dorkiest media-company name you ever heard of; and scores of weekend activities.
