1/31/19: SHUTTERED
Jan 30th, 2019 by Clark Humphrey

Remembering Northwest photo master Mary Randlett; the Lava Lounge and neighbors are threatened with removal again; women’s-soccer Reign headed south; still more Howard Schultz dissing.

1/29/19: WHO PULLED THE STRINGS?
Jan 28th, 2019 by Clark Humphrey

An Internet-history TV series depicts Bill Gates as a puppet; folks say many (unkind) words about Howard Schultz; a Libyan-born comedian is harassed by Border Patrol; yet another housing-crisis bureaucracy.

12/13/18: THE BIG APPLE VS. THE BIG A
Dec 12th, 2018 by Clark Humphrey

Anti-HQ2 forces gather in NYC; don’t expect the Phoenix NBA team to come here; hate-crime charges follow Lynnwood bar fight; are Seattle-Tacoma ferries coming?

10/16/18: PAUL GARDNER ALLEN, 1953-2018
Oct 15th, 2018 by Clark Humphrey

One of Seattle’s (and the world’s) most prominent people passes. Also: KeyArena razing starts; more deliberate far-right violence; dams vs. orcas.

9/13/18: THESE CHARMING ABS

11/24/17: DISAPPEARANCE, THEN & NOW
Nov 23rd, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

In your truncated post-holiday missive: art and the fading visibility of blacks now and Chinese Americans then; sex-while-driving crash; #BlackLivesMatter So White (at least in Seattle); a new place to buy our book ‘Loser’ in person (for a limited time).

9/20/17: IT’S BIG, BAD, AND BACK
Sep 19th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

In our midweek missive: Republicans just won’t stop trying to kill affordable health care (and thus several million Americans); a local social-justice activist vs. useless “purity” obsessions; tentative victories in eco-lawsuits; the end of the CD’s indie supermarket; and helping the homeless feel “at home,” if just for a moment.

7/26/17: THE LAST LUBE
Jul 25th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

Babeland will still be a pan-gender sex-toy shop. It just won’t be our own pan-gender sex toy shop. We also explore a fun new look for an ex-department store; a strange anti-pot billboard that looks just so ’80s; big bucks for cherries; and a Seattle-set TV drama’s unexplained continued existence.

6/9/17: FUN FLIES WHEN YOU’RE HAVING TIME
Jun 9th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

The third year of MISCmedia MAIL begins with a few random memories of my time on this earth. It goes on to discuss an historic big painting you’ve got to see; Boeing’s research into pilot-free planes; an Islamophobic rally moved from Portland to Seattle; and the usual zillion event listings.

6/8/17: ON WITH THE SHOW, THIS IS IT!
Jun 7th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

MISCmedia MAIL today discusses the mayor’s big (albeit still tentative) arena deal; attempts to reach common ground with local Muslims and/or Republicans; non-techbro reasons for the housing crisis; and the Mariners’ comeback all the way to .500! But these are all minor stories compared to the big event of the day, our own spectacular b-day party for both the newsletter and for myself, 6:30 p.m. tonight at the tenacious Two Bells in bountiful Belltown.

5/12/17: ON THE RUCKELSHAUS
May 11th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

The recent FBI boss’s firing reminds many of Nixon’s “Saturday Night Massacre,” and the local political personage who was one of its victims. Also in MISCmedia MAIL: Yet another mayoral hopeful (probably not the last); Chris Hansen’s arena people strike back; Cliff Mass again makes a fool of himself on a non-weather topic; Amazon vs. Walmart in online espionage; and the usual gaggle of weekend events.
