2/12/18: RACISTS: ‘WE’RE JUST LIKE MLK’
Feb 11th, 2018 by Clark Humphrey

Right-wing rally turns to nonsense; Amazon’s ‘Spheres of Panopticon’; another beloved cinema to be razed?; could Boeing v. Airbus turn ballistic?

2/6/18: COLOR ME UNSURPRISED
Feb 5th, 2018 by Clark Humphrey

The white guys behind a ‘Sick of White Guys’ book; why the Almighty Stock Price likely doesn’t matter to you; are new building projects slowing here?

1/5/18: LIGHTING UP A BATTLE
Jan 4th, 2018 by Clark Humphrey

Our big weekend letter looks at the feds’ revived threat to legal cannabis; yet another dying Sears; a drive to make the state more environmentally “resilient;” and a conspiracy suit against high housing costs.

12/18/17: THE CLAUS THAT REFRESHES
Dec 17th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

Our pre-Xmas week begins with the Santa Con bar crawl; why you should admire the Seahawks even after that last game; a fish farm losing its lease; and how Pierce Co. prosecutor Mark Lindquist could be re-elected, disbarred, or both.

12/8/17: THE PUCK STARTS HERE?
Dec 8th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

In your big weekend letter: The campaign for a Seattle NHL team commences; the real cost of virtual currency; non-progress in hotel-worker safety; another major Seattle institution approaches its date of death.

12/7/17: ALONG COMES MARY(S)
Dec 8th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

For your Thursday edification: Sung and unsung heroines of history; local sports legend sued for harassment; original 13 Coins’ last day; new Viaduct demolition schedule.

10/6/17: THE LAST RIDE DOWN
Oct 6th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

In our big weekend MISCmedia MAIL: Smith Tower goes automated; three-teen murder tragedy; local alt-right ‘mocking’ victim; did City Attorney Pete Holmes go too far?

8/30/17: SMOKE GETS IN YOUR…
Aug 29th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

I’m not complaining about a little haze in the air, compared to three to four feet of rain elsewhere. It just makes breathing a little tough for some of us. Other subjects this day: Figuring out the finances of Jenny Durkan’s free-tuition plan; obscene price gouging in Texas (and one free-marketeer who likes it); a union official who embezzled cash and tried to cover it up by disbanding the union; and a realty exec insists we’re not in a housing bubble, no way, don’t even think about it.

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.

7/27/17: GONE TO THE MOON
Jul 26th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

The Boeing-built lunar rovers are still on the moon; should we move to legally protect them from anyone who might show up to trash them? We also view local reactions to the trans-soldier ban; two new attacks against Evergreen State (one more absurd than the other); a venerable used-book palace going away; and the demise of a cartoon-voice legend.

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.

7/3/17: THE BIG REVEAL
Jul 2nd, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

We’ve finally gotten to see the Olympia sausage factory’s freshly-ground state budget, and it’s about as much a mess as you’d expect. Our between-the-holidays missive also brings up a 1st Ave. building with a storied past but not much of a future; Inslee refusing the White House’s voter-suppression drive; a potential threat to many existing homeless shelters; and thoughts by an old Roman about patriotism and its abuse.

6/12/17: OUT OF (BAT-)TIME
Jun 12th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

MISCmedia MAIL remembers the great Adam West, the local guy who became an icon of ’60s “camp” culture by playing it completely “straight.” We also honor the pro-Muslim counter-demonstrators; tick down the days toward a state-govt. shutdown; and mourn F.X. McRory’s.

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.
