MISCmedia MAIL for 8/11/16: THE SOUND OF SCHMOOZE-IC
Aug 11th, 2016 by Clark Humphrey

Paul Allen’s next big local spectacular will be a music festival and industry confab, coming to Pioneer Square in May. And we also look at another Black Lives Matter march; a fish-processing plant proposed for the soon-to-be-ex Weyerhaeuser campus; feudin’ whales; and an ex-governor’s questionable real-estate sale.

MISCmedia MAIL for 8/9/16: ‘TERRACED’ ART
Aug 8th, 2016 by Clark Humphrey

This week marks 25 years of the ol’ WWW thang. But instead of getting caught up in nostalgia for Netscape and the sound of dial-up modems, we stay focused on the present day. Specifically, we observe anti-choice hustlers trying to get their paws on UW records; the Yesler Terrace redevelopment commissioning public art from one of its own residents; a Pioneer Square building finally getting redeveloped after being vacant almost a decade; good news for non-rich renters for once; and an electronic dance remix of “Spoonman” (why?).

MISCmedia MAIL FOR 8/5/16: A WORD FROM OUR SPONSONS
Aug 4th, 2016 by Clark Humphrey

The biggest weekend of the year is here for both art lovers and Seattle old-timers. We’ve got a link to a guy who explains just why the hydroplane races are still important. We’ve also got a guy who quit running for office but made it to the top-two general election anyway; the need for affordable housing in the ‘burbs; the threat of technological thought-reading; a nascent “co-op” nightclub; and dozens of event listings, art-related and otherwise.

MISCmedia MAIL for 8/1/16: DAMN.
Jul 31st, 2016 by Clark Humphrey

Damn. Another senseless shooting in my home county. Just damn. And in less tragic news, the Mariners almost win a series against MLB’s top team; a composting machine goes away; another pipe dreamer wants a state income tax; and gulls who eat their own.

MISCmedia MAIL for 7/22/16: CRIMES AGAINST CULTURE
Jul 21st, 2016 by Clark Humphrey

In our weekend e-missive: Zara’s stealing designs from artists here and worldwide; the end of the UW’s li’l piece of brutalism; Seattle rents keep getting more obscene; a boatload of weekend activity listings; and a brief message as political/racial stuff gets truly nasty.

MISCmedia MAIL for 7/18/16
Jul 18th, 2016 by Clark Humphrey

One each of every Boeing “7 series” plane model was all lined up, and it wasn’t a “stacked landing pattern.” We’re also looking at further misadventures in talk-radio “outrage porn;” the looming end of the building known as “Fairview Fanny;” big fee hikes for outdoor events in town; Lauren Jackson’s hail n’ farewell; and Bertha’s makers insisting it was fine when it left the factory.

MISCmedia MAIL for 7/7/16: FEELIN’ LUCKY?
Jul 6th, 2016 by Clark Humphrey

On the supposedly luckiest day of the year, we explore still more trouble for Tim Eyman; a scheme to build “affordable” housing on top of parking garages; Microsoft learning how not to relate to college students; a company trying to create “viral” videos; and a broadcasting landmark’s sad end.

MISCmedia MAIL for 7/6/16: A REAL ‘SHOW RUNNER’
Jul 5th, 2016 by Clark Humphrey

A new film about Eugene track stars is co-made by a track star. We’ve also got good news for cherry lovers; the truth about local graffitits; Brexit’s potential (not-good) effects on the local economy; which initiatives might make the ballot; and the start of the Russell Wilson/Ciara wedding countdown (use your own clock).

MISCmedia MAIL for 7/1/16: FROM SOUTH OF THE BORDER
Jun 30th, 2016 by Clark Humphrey

On Canada Day, our favorite adjacent nation’s been thru some hard times but will persevere. Plus: The remaining ruins of the Longacres horse track; Montlake could lose its only (close enough to a) supermarket; a court orders Wash. cities to create bike-safe streets; Boeing hints of more local employment; and robots n’ drones down on the farm.

MISCmedia MAIL for 6/14/16: THE FALLOUT CONTINUES
Jun 13th, 2016 by Clark Humphrey

As reactions from the Orlando tragedy continue, we also look at Microsoft buying a popular but unprofitable dot-com; getting the ‘burbs to support downtown transit amenities; a proposed condo tower to be marketed to Chinese nationals; a new political “party” in Wash. state; and “locally sourced” electricity.

MISCmedia MAIL @1!
Jun 7th, 2016 by Clark Humphrey

We’ve been doing these weekday e-missives for a whole year! If you’re in town, come join us at a low-key fete tonight. (Details at the link.) In non-self-centered topics: Bellevue High football gets the proverbial book thrown at it; Ride the Ducks might escape some crash-victim lawsuits; Capitol Hill Pride might celebrate beyond what it’s been officially permitted; progress at last in a four-year-old rape case; and testing corn-based jet fuel on a regular passenger flight.

MISCmedia MAIL for 5/30/16
May 29th, 2016 by Clark Humphrey

In your Monday missive: The Mariners lose at home again; Central Washington’s wildfire season’s underway already, as seen by Sasquatch! festival-goers; Seattle’s black community’s increasingly a diaspora; a local high-school shooting becomes a streaming-TV-drama subplot; and who really sends the most anti-woman Tweets® and does it matter?

MISCmedia MAIL for 5/26/16
May 25th, 2016 by Clark Humphrey

It’s the day before the big Mem-Day weekend, and the Mariners just won a home series! In other topics: The downtown power failure was our kind of non-injurous “disaster” story;  the Stranger wants you to go see places that no longer existed (or never did); Portland’s police chief’s caught in a gun-related lie; and Microsoft’s Nokia purchase meets an inauspicious endgame.

MISCmedia MAIL for 5/10/16
May 9th, 2016 by Clark Humphrey

Oh no, not Roq La Rue closing! That’s worse than, well, several other bad things. Also today: Asking Bernie Sanders to run for President like he’s run for the Senate (as an indie); Ammon Bundy’s deluded strategy; an NW music legend at 93; and America’s glut of under-qualified white people in high places.

MISCmedia MAIL for 5/6/16
May 5th, 2016 by Clark Humphrey

Sheila E. won’t let personal tragedy interfere with work for Seattle’s young musicians. Also noteworthy today: Big tech fails in SR520 tolling; coal and oil export-terminal plans proceed despite industry upheavals; tacky, potentially racist Cinco de Mayo apparel; Seattle (er, Kent) is posed for a hockey championship; and Paul Allen’s new twist on “cross-marketing synergy.”
