2/22/18: PAST PIX AND LIVING LEGACIES
Feb 22nd, 2018 by Clark Humphrey

Images of Northwest natives then and now; a Murray accuser sues the city; Boeing offices to become storage lockers; Billy Graham’s tarnished legacy.

1/11/18: AMA-BUCKS? AMA-ZLOTYS?
Jan 10th, 2018 by Clark Humphrey

Money magazine thinks Amazon could launch its own, well, money; judge OKs’ SPD reform progress; Bob Ferguson’s war on the ‘war on pot’.

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.

11/15/17: NOT THE SAME OLD SONG
Nov 15th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

For your post-blackout (we hope) Wednesday: David Bazan on being an ‘ex-Evangelical’; city council nixes ‘head tax’; another legal victory against Longview coal port; Marvel comes to MoPOP.

10/31/17: SHOPPING MAGIC
Oct 31st, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

On this “spooktacular” day, we offer a ‘Harry Potter’ Halloween; a reform agreement with (some) police; a Microsoft discrimination suit that might grow; and the off-again Sprint/T-Mobile merger.

6/12/17: OUT OF (BAT-)TIME
Jun 12th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

MISCmedia MAIL remembers the great Adam West, the local guy who became an icon of ’60s “camp” culture by playing it completely “straight.” We also honor the pro-Muslim counter-demonstrators; tick down the days toward a state-govt. shutdown; and mourn F.X. McRory’s.

6/2/17: GREENERS SO WHITE
Jun 2nd, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

The unspecified “clear threat” reported by Evergreen State College brass is, at least partly, the fallout from a heated email exchange about race and the limits of white “progressivism.” Your weekend MISCmedia MAIL also mentions local officials refusing to go backwards on climate change; another reason why encampment sweeps put people in danger; a guy who says he can build affordable housing units at half price; and a guy who wants to break up Amazon.

MISCmedia MAIL FOR 3/7/17: BIGOTRY, THE SEQUEL
Mar 6th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

Meet the new travel ban, almost as stupid as the old travel ban. Also, meet the clever promoters who booked the nascent Ramones into the stolid Olympic Hotel; the IT guy who allegedly tried to steal data from Columbia Sportswear; the commentator who doesn’t approve of Nathan Hale High’s basketball recruiting tactics; and the Colfax boy who became a classic-film legend.

MISCmedia MAIL FOR 3/3/17: BATTERY CHARGE?
Mar 2nd, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

As car-free humans get a chance to walk through the Battery Street Tunnel, we wonder what will become of the ol’ thing. We also think about Girl Scout cookie-inspired apparel; the truth of that supposedly “Hawaiian” beer; more fears of a post-ACA nation; and the human failing behind Amazon Web Service’s temporary meltdown.

MISCmedia MAIL FOR 2/24/17: MAKING MERRY AS AN ACT OF DEFIANCE
Feb 23rd, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

The big Carnival-celebratin’ places have faced horrible times, but always found some good times to let roll. So should we. Also in our biggest-yet e-missive: Rep. Reichert hides from his constituents; renters will get a voice at City Hall; divers keep searching for long-sunken ships; and the remains of Apollo 11 coming to town.

MISCmedia MAIL FOR 1/26/17: HE SELLS SANCTUARY
Jan 25th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

Mayor Murray (and Sheriff Urquhart) proclaim they, and we, will not be bowed by the DC dictatorship’s anti-immigrant scare tactics. In lighter topics, we comment upon the latest fashion in space suits; how dense Seattle’s really gotten; a perky protest song name-dropping scientists and free thinkers; and the end of the deli-mart with the plastic cow on its roof (the cow’s staying).

MISCmedia MAIL FOR 1/10/17: ALL YESTERDAY’S TOMORROWS
Jan 9th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

We finally have something to look forward to this year! (Two things, if you count the possibility of a little snow on Tuesday.) Additional topics include a local eco-activist’s part of a global effort to keep once-futuristic electronic gadgets out of dumps and landfills; the just-started and already deadlocked Legislature; how urban growth affects plant/animal evolution; and Teatro ZinZanni’s site getting sold off.

MISCmedia MAIL for 12/23/16: JESUS IS STILL JUST ALL RIGHT
Dec 22nd, 2016 by Clark Humphrey

Despite the materialistic and/or post-pagan trappings of the season, the oft re-imagined, re-interpreted figure of Jesus remains at the core of our society’s yearly winter-solstice rituals. And he really is a great guy if you separate what he said and did from what some of his supposed followers have said and done.

Meanwhile, in Friday’s news we’ve got a call for an environmental study on a 15-year-old oil pier; big fines against a payday lender; more “youth jail” dispute developments; and the possible peak/slowdown of the overheated local apartment market.

MISCmedia MAIL FOR 12/12/16: GET YOUR KICKS…
Dec 11th, 2016 by Clark Humphrey

The Sounders came back from last place in the MLS West to win the whole proverbial shebang! In non-Euro-style-sports happenings, there’s a drive to keep a white guy from being appointed to a “majority-minority” Legislative seat; Fukushima radiation hits the coast; and the Mama’s building could be named a historic landmark.

MISCmedia MAIL for 11/22/16: A HERO AGAIN
Nov 22nd, 2016 by Clark Humphrey

Did Seahawks star Doug Baldwin’s testimony bring the “winning edge” when a state task force voted to make police more liable in deadly-force cases? We’ll never know. But we do know about a City Council budget vote; the potential perils of a Canadian oil pipeline; and a quiet end to one of Seattle’s oldest restaurants.
