Jan 27th, 2020 by Clark Humphrey

A local benefit concert that benefits its own local musicians (who need it); more downtown-shooting reactions; Alex Pedersen scoffs at the City Council’s anti-injustice resolutions; the feds decide to close the Northwest’s only National Archives facility.

9/10/19: A POST-INDUSTRIAL MUSICAL

Microsoft interns revive an obscure music sub-genre; Amazon workers plan a climate walkout; Frances Bean Cobain designs Kurt-sploitation clothes; ‘blue’ people DO live in ‘red’ counties.

A local punk pioneer speaks for the trees; Saudis cited in Bezos blowup; the alleged Lake City shooter says he doesn’t remember doing it; the surprising Ms just keep winning.

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
Sep 12th, 2018 by Clark Humphrey

A musical mash-up of Morrissey and workout-DVD reviews (!); the Storm’s righteous total triumph; detained immigrant youth at risk of abuse; local tourism biz deals with shutoff of public ad money.

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.
