12/29/17: WHITE WINTER ‘HYMN’-NAL
Dec 29th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

The year’s final MISCmedia MAIL explores a city getting ever younger; an addition to the Charleena Lyles lawsuit; the end of Seattle’s crooked-est alley; and Sherman Alexie exhorting against hate.

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.

12/14/17: NEUTRAL SPIRITS
Dec 14th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

For your Thursday perusal: everyone loves net neutrality except (some) corporations and the politicians they own; simply “praising” black women’s not enough; Fisherman’s terminal gets bigger; light-rail expansion to speed (slightly) up.

12/5/17: TRUCE IN THE ARENA OF BATTLE?
Dec 5th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

In a big local news day, Coliseum 3.0 plan OK’d; police chief and City Light CEO quit; parents address the ‘PTA gap’ between local schools; Sounders fans don’t like (unofficial) Sounders beer.

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.

11/10/17: GET THIS ‘PARTY’ STARTED
Nov 10th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

In your big weekend MISCmedia MAIL: Local Cold War nostalgia; a local CEO sued for assault; the city’s latest big upzone plan (still) omits most single-family zones; anti-encampment fence put up at Spokane Street.

11/3/17: SLEEPING IN
Nov 3rd, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

In your big weekend news: ‘Sleep-in’ and ‘die-in’ actions for the homeless; how open-source software can be even more ‘bro’-heavy than corporate code; a private ferry to Renton?

9/6/17: ASHES TO ASHES
Sep 5th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

The sky all day Tuesday was, among other colors a sickening shade of orange (how “of our time”). The other huge story today: Folk in all walks-O-life (even a couple of Republicans) bash the trashing of “Dreamers.” Plus, the UW wants to build employee housing.

8/31/17: KINGDOME NOSTALGIA
Aug 30th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

One of the principal engineers behind the now-razed domed stadium passed away, having outlived his creation by 17 years. Our further Thursday topics: tribal rights to privately-held art works; a WSU prof decrying neo-Nazi images on campus; a fired cop’s legal settlement; and whether Amazon should spin off its most profitable asset (in order to keep it profitable).

8/18/17: NOT SET IN STONE
Aug 17th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

Apparently, we have to explain (to both the far-right goons and the mayor) that the Fremont Lenin statue, in its present space and context, is a snark against the man it depicts. Our other weekend-newsletter topics include spy-cam drones vs. wildfires; solar cells in ink on plastic wrap; a lawsuit over Costco’s golf balls; and one past Republican who stood up to the hate-mongers.

WHITELIST ME NOW! (ASK ME HOW)
Aug 11th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

After two-plus years of weekday e-mail newsletters, some subscribers still report they’re not getting ’em every weekday.

The problem: their ISP mistakes my loving e-missives for junk mail, and stops them before they even get into users’ inbox OR junk-mail folders.

It’s a common syndrome.

And a nice person created a handy set of instructions on how to stop it.

You’ll find these instructions, customized for MISCmedia MAIL, at this link:

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.

8/1/17: RING THE ALARMS
Aug 1st, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

Is the Two Bells Bar & Grill, Belltown’s “living room” for more than three decades, doomed for yet another high-rise? (And if not, how will it be saved?) Other topics this primary-election day include still more calls for Ed Murray to quit; Police Chief O’Toole’s odd statement on police brutality; the city’s misguided centralized-IT project; and the death of a legendary local cartoonist/illustrator/weatherman/ski promoter/supermarket spokesguy.

7/20/17: ‘COFFEE FORWARD,’ TWO STEPS BACK
Jul 19th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

A bluster-phobic Financial Times writer tears into one of Howard Schultz’s more bombastic hype statements. Your Thursday headline roundup also mentions a snag in the police reform plan; a miscarriage (of more than just justice) at the private immigration jail; the return of an annual spectacle loved by some tribal members and hated by some animal lovers; and layoffs at a local tech giant.

6/7/17: THE LAST REEL?
Jun 6th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

Wednesday’s MISCmedia MAIL doesn’t know any more than you about the sudden closure of the classic Guild 45th and Seven Gables cinemas. We do know a little about another police-brutality settlement; the International District’s “upzone” moving forward; what white liberals don’t “get” about the whole Evergreen State College to-do; and our big, boistrous birthday party (tomorrow, Thursday 6/8/17, at the tony Two Bells!).
