Editor’s Note: September 2019…Refreshed…Refocused

9.3.19 Volume: 7 #:9 Hello…it’s good to be back! I’ve had a month-long vacation so that I could recharge my creative batteries.  Not only do I work on this blog, but I also work at night at a university and that can make me quite exhausted. So I decided to take a month off to relax. Summer is already coming to an end and I’m soo ready for fall! In the meantime, I managed to do a little cleaning up on the blog site. Some recognizable places within the blog will change, but I am adding a few new things too. I’m also will be looking for maybe three or four people to help me run this blog. One can’t do it all. So let’s get September started…         Featured images: The Everygirl Advertisements

Shadowboxerinc Under Construction…Will Return In September…

8.1.19 Vol. 7 / #8 Hello everyone! Not a whole lot going this month, because Shadowboxerinc is under construction. I will post MidWeek and Weeknd Updates, so please be on the lookout for that. You’ll see things being moved about, but don’t worry by September everything will be in place.  I don’t know if every blogger goes through this, but I’ve somewhat reached like kind of a plateau and I’ve decided to take some time to reboot. I have a slew of ideas that I want for this blog and beyond. I hope to have a few creative people on this journey that is Shadowboxerince. So goodbye July…Shadowboxerinc will be back full-on in September!         Featured image: unknown  

Editor’s Note / July 2019

7.1.19 Vol. 7 / #7 Hello! A new month has crept up upon us. This going to be a short editor’s note from me… Machine Gun Kelly has a new album coming, along with other artists, newbies, and veterans. I’m keeping my eye on the Governor’s Art Show that will be held on every weekend in September in NYC. If only could be there for that! During this time of the year there are quite a few workshops, conferences, and other events in art, literature, and other creative outlets, so I am on the lookout. Where to? You’ll have to visit the blog site for that. I always say that there will be changes to the site and that is true. I’m gonna need some help to run it soon.  So goodbye June…Hello July!         Featured image: Wallpaper HD

Editor’s Note / June 2019

6.1.19 Vol. 7 / #6 Hello! June is here and I’m glad. May was a bit stressful, trying to juggle this blog and a day (well night job) is becoming taxing. I can only hope this month is a bit lighter.  Jonas Brothers, Kate Tempest, Mark Ronson…what do they have in common? New music, meanwhile thirty-one festivals happening in the States, art workshops, writing workshops, all other workshops are going on this summer. Speaking of summer, time to look to see what great books are coming this month. Summer movies are already in gear, probably time to see write some reviews… Other things to talk about, Shadow Spotlight, Where To, and other Shadow staples to get to. I’m always on the lookout to see what people are doing creatively. So goodbye May…Hello June!           Featured image: Desktop Backgrounds 2019  

Editor’s Note / May 2019

5.1.19 Vol. 7 / #5 Good Morning! A new month, a beginning of sorts, right? This will be a short note here. Lots of activities to pass along to you. New music, films, and other good stuff. I’ve been on vacation back in April and decided not to do a Where To segment of Orlando, but this month I’m making up for it! Will there be film reviews? Yes, about a few.  As you can already see, there have been a slight few changes on the blog site and I’m working on quite a few…that word again…projects.  So let’s say goodbye to April and onward to May!           Featured image: Crosscards.com

We have left March and now April is here.  New things to cover this month like Idelwild, Kahlid, Anderson.Paak, Cage the Elephant, and more are releasing new albums this month, along with a slew of music festivals, including Coachella 2019. Lots of art workshops and retreats this year and some literature workshops, conferences too.  We are still in the state of Florida and the last pit stop for Where To is Orlando. I’m focusing on an actor or actress for Shadow Spotlight…someone who is making some people talk… For this month’s Creative Close-Up, I’m looking to put some great posts from other creative people.  I keep saying that I’m going to do a film review…but I’m doing some for real this time!  Later this month, I will start with the celebration of the 40th Anniversary of Alien. Yes since it’s film debut in May 1979, a lot is going on. 20th Century Fox, along with its partnership with Tongal, is releasing six Alien-universe-fan-made short films. All leading up to …
