10/19/17: THE RACER IS RUN
Oct 19th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

Cafe Racer’s last hurrah was a wake, a reunion, and a fond adieu. Also today: Halloween costume trends; downtown streetcar threatened; a tribe’s patent suit against Amazon & Microsoft.

10/18/17: WEATHER IMITATES ART
Oct 18th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

In your midweek missive: Van Gogh vs. Pacific-storm satellite imagery; Ottawa hockey fans are exhorted to make noise for Amazon (really); a warning that the extreme right will be with us a long while.

10/13/17: DOLL PARTS
Oct 14th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

In your big weekend news roundup: A cult toy’s Seattle connection; more stupid health-insurance tricks; Amazon’s man in Hollywood suspended; ‘dead zone’ waters off the Oregon coast.

MISCmedia MAIL FOR 3/8/17: YES, WHITE WOMEN ARE WHITE
Mar 7th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

International Women’s Day, and the call for a “Day Without a Woman” strike, have caused disunity and charges of “white privilege.” I also turn my eye to the White House’s war against Planet Earth; anti-Sikh violence a century ago and now; the city “sweeping” the homeless from a site the city had originally encouraged; and an impasse over the “levy cliff.”

MISCmedia MAIL FOR 2/27/17: #OSCARSOINEPT
Feb 26th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

Well, there went the chance for anybody to remember the “political” speeches at the award ceremony. We’ll still talk about situations in the off-screen world, including why “Indivisible” is nothing like the “Tea Party”; “rescuing” data on federal computers that might get wiped any day now; black history preserved; Kelsey Plum’s triumph; and a black community group wanting to take over a big development project.

MISCmedia MAIL FOR 2/16/17: THE RADIO IS IN THE HANDS OF SUCH A LOT OF FOOLS…
Feb 16th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

There’s no secret to KIRO-FM’s current format. The once-respectable news/talk station has largely fallen to the “hate talk” formula, a slick and refined shtick that’s drawing ratings around the nation (at the expense of America itself). Also today: whole towns in central Washington in the dark; more reaction to the Daniel Ramirez Medina arrest; police action vs. hate crimes; and what a “cryptid” is and why we may honor one.

MISCmedia MAIL FOR 2/3/17: CRIMES AGAINST CULTURE
Feb 2nd, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

Grave robbers are stealing precious carvings from the Lummi Reservation’s cemetery. We’ve also got scads of resistance headlines and scads of weekend event listings. But the big news: Seattle snow! However brief, it’s a precious miracle and an omen for brighter times again.

MISCmedia MAIL FOR 1/9/17: JAYAPAL’S FIRST STAND
Jan 8th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

Pramila Jayapal did her best to derail the Electoral College vote’s certification after it was already too late, alas. But it’s never too late to join the Resistance. Or to read today’s e-missive about the next stages in police reform; how and why white liberals should learn to “talk about race;” some “dangerously pure” street drugs; and treating depression with a video game.

MISCmedia MAIL for 11/11/16: LEST WE FORGET
Nov 10th, 2016 by Clark Humphrey

We end a bad, terrible, horrible, not-good week with a Veterans Day remembrance and many calls for solidarity, action, and empathy. Also the usual dozens of weekend event possibilities, and the death of a music legend.

MISCmedia MAIL for 5/24/16
May 23rd, 2016 by Clark Humphrey

The Mariners came home and, yes, lost. Also today: Vandalizing salmon pens; hospital workers stealing opioids; a suburban city official who wanted to know where every Muslim in town lived; human-rights activists claim “victory” at Amazon; and a big artificial-intelligence conference in town (for all us fake-smarties).

MISCmedia MAIL for 4/14/16
Apr 13th, 2016 by Clark Humphrey

Today’s topics feature a much-less-appetizing truck cargo spill; Muslim-bashing in Mukilteo of all places; yet another Hendrix memorial (the biggest yet); Capitol Hill Art Walk choices; and how the news biz can’t both “foster diversity” and expect young adults to work for free.

MISCmedia MAIL for 4/8/16
Apr 7th, 2016 by Clark Humphrey

Comicon begins, as does the Mariners’ home season. And we’re still here as before, pondering alleged racist “microaggression” at a certain cable news channel (NOT “that one”); how “diverse” Seattle’s neighborhoods really aren’t; folks in high rises who don’t like the prospect of other high rises; a Bauhaus Coffee resurrection?; and the usual scads of weekend things.

MISCmedia MAIL for 4/4/16
Apr 4th, 2016 by Clark Humphrey

Hope springs eternal (or at least for a day) as the Mariners’ season begins. We also mention: whales vs. whales; the new 520 bridge non-charity walkathon; another hyper-sleazy “war against the poor” move; and, yeah, the end of the UW women’s hoop dreams (for this year).

MISCmedia MAIL for 3/7/16
Mar 6th, 2016 by Clark Humphrey

The work week begins anew with secret sweetheart deals in Kent; attempts to bring commercial air travel back to Everett; the still-unapologetic Shell ship invader in Bellingham; Fantagraphics’ most prestigious contributor yet; and the Sounders’ season-opening meh.

MISCmedia MAIL for 2/16/16
Feb 16th, 2016 by Clark Humphrey

It’s back to work and back to the news, including strange bedfellows against Trans restroom rights; a threat to a self-managed homeless camp; the death of a local theater legend; and Comcast rains on KING’s new-studio parade.
