5/3/17: A LITTLE BIRDIE TOLD HIM
May 3rd, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

We welcome (possibly) the first warm day of the year with a MISCmedia MAIL containing the eco-lesson a filmmaker learned from a dead albatross; another Ed Murray accuser; a longer-than-usual Mariners loss; and the arrival of the Storm to relieve us from Ms-related ennui.

5/2/17: SORRY, NO VIOLENCE (HERE)
May 2nd, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

In MISCmedia MAIL today: Nope, no real “anarchist” violence this May Day (at least in Seattle), just some right-wingers acting all scary n’ stuff. Also: Remembering Mike Lowry; new life for a legendary gay bar; the city’s income tax scheme moves forward; and class in identifying “fake news.”

5/1/17: DO AS YOU ‘MAY’
Apr 30th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

Another month, another MISCmedia MAIL, and another set of May Day protests. Let’s make this one inclusive instead of destructive, ‘K? We also discuss the recent Punk Rock Flea Market; the Folklife Fest’s serious fiscal woes; one thing that could halt Amazon’s big growth; and a “salmon cannon.”

4/28/17: 100 DOWN, (X) TO GO
Apr 28th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

As the GOPocalypse just drags on with stupid move after scary move and vice versa, we keep our MISCmedia MAIL virtual eye firmly focused on the Here. And on this day our eye sees an online “educational” time-waster all about geology and earthquakes; a revised “soda tax” concept that would stick it to the Sparkling Ice drinkers as well as the Coke/Pepsi crowd; refugees afraid to even go to the doctor; Amazon’s massive payroll growth; and the usual hundreds of weekend event listings.

4/27/17: SENSE STOPPED BEING MADE
Apr 26th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

Our Thursday newsletter commences with a memory of Jonathan Demme. It continues with a loved but closing indie home-garden store; a vaguely defined new anti-homelessness crusade; what’s really behind those $425 jeans; and a fond adieu to Beast Mode.

4/26/17: FAKE MUD AND A DEMOLISHED DINER
Apr 26th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

In Tuesday’s e-missive: A new low in fashion silliness; a local landmark razed two years after its closure; a GOP state senator who wants to force the city and county to divorce; more hipster “Native inspired” culture-theft; and fake “No Parking” signs.

4/24/17: THE SEASON FOR THE REASON
Apr 23rd, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

In your Monday newsletter: The signs at the March for Science may have been funny and punny, but the cause they represented is deadly serious. Plus: what a city income-tax measure would mean (not much at first except work for lawyers); reaching out to GLBT immigrants; Sounders and Mariners both finally win on the road; and a great local-politics blog bids a fond adieu.

MISCmedia MAIL FOR 4/21/17: TEST OF ‘TIME’
Apr 20th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

Your big weekend e-missive begins with an unexpected (but not undeserved) honor for one of our state’s greatest. We continue on to mention more mayoral-race and Murray-case developments; stories of people caught up in the big anti-immigrant scares; the close of the Burlington shooter’s sad life story; and the reasons we need Earth Day and the March for Science.

MISCmedia MAIL FOR THE TWENTIETH DAY OF APRIL 2017: GONE TO THE MOON?
Apr 19th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

We’ve got another candidate for mayor. She’s another ex-“Bertha” opponent, too. Elsewhere, we look at what the Legislature has (and more importantly hasn’t) done this session; more Murray-case developments; the sad case of a homeless “cat hoarder;” and no stoner “humor.”

MISCmedia MAIL FOR 4/19/17: A LEASH ON LIFE
Apr 18th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

This day’s installment of your favorite local news digest contains a warning against the combo of “dog plus beach minus leash.” In heavier topics, we mention further mayoral-race and Murray-case developments; a big event that could delay any KeyArena rebuild; Nazi posters on another college campus; and ill feelings at a theater-support group.

MISCmedia MAIL FOR 4/18/17: McGINN AGAIN BEGIN AGAIN
Apr 17th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

Our e-missive today leads off with the previous mayor wanting to become the next mayor. It also includes Amazon workers who don’t like the dot-com’s ads on Breitbart; climate change altering the course of mighty rivers; the Mariners’ continued comeback; and where some African American activists, who didn’t go to the big Black Lives Matter march, went instead.

MISCmedia MAIL FOR 4/17/17: A PALER SHADE OF WHITE?
Apr 16th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

Today at MISCmedia MAIL, thousands gathered in Seattle to support Black Lives Matter, most all of them white. Also: people who aren’t the Seattle Times editorial board want Ed Murray to quit; the Mariners start winning; the Army helps save fish by killing birds; and what Easter (and its pagan precursors) mean today.

MISCmedia MAIL FOR 4/14/17: THE BIG SOG
Apr 13th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

What comes after heavy winter precipitation? Heavy spring flooding, of course. We additionally view the spreading hunger strike at the immigration jail; transit fans against proposed ST3 funding cuts; Microsoft wanting to buy its own (mostly “renewable”) electricity; shout-outs against federal cuts to farms and cancer scientists; and the usual gazillion weekend events listings.

MISCmedia MAIL FOR 4/11/17: THE SHIRT OFF (ER, ON) HIS BACK
Apr 10th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

Jeff Ament took Pearl Jam’s Rock n’ Roll Hall of Fame fete to silently support some of the great acts still not in there. We additionally look at more (non-) developments in the Murray case; Herbold’s unsuccessful drive for additional HALA concessions; the failed revival of a beloved local bakery firm; and a Hendrix “Shadow Wave Wall.”

4/10/17: HOW THINGS WERE THEN
Apr 9th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

Today at MISCmedia MAIL, we’re reminded that intergenerational sex was common in the gay-male scene at, or at least shortly before, the time Ed Murray was allegedly involved in it. Also: a high-tech way to burn trash; even more Boeing state tax breaks; and they love us in France!
