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   Advertisements

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  

Editor’s Note: April 2019

4.1.19 Vol. 7 / #4 Hello! 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 …

Editor’s Note / February 2019

1.31.19 Vol. 7 / #2 February is here and do we have a lot of things get out and about!  As you already know this month is Black History Month and I have much creative stuff that I can’t wait to share… Music releases from Belrut, Ariana Grande, Bob Mould, Xiu Xiu, and Avril Lavigne. Nine festivals, just nine getting ready like Gem & Jam 2019, The Rock Boat 2019, 70,000 Tons of Metal 2019, and others.  I will post the last reminder for those attending the AWP (Association of Writing & Writing Programs) Conference Bookfair 2019, which will be in Portland Oregon March 27-30, 2019.          Valentine’s Day falls on a Thursday and yes I will be coming up with something, I mean why not…   Straz Center for Performing Arts, Gasparilla Music Festival, or Tampa Museum of Art? Just the places to visit in Tampa, Florida, our Where To for February.  There was Music Focus, now we have Art Focus and Rashid Johnson is our focus for February, along with …

Editor’s Note: January 2019

1.1.19 Vol. 7 / #1 HAPPY NEW YEAR! 2018 has come and gone and we are now into 2019. New beginnings, new year, new month, new everything.   Remember Papa Roach? Some of you may or may not remember this group, but they are releasing new music this month, along with Mono, Steve Gunn, and Alice Merton. I always turn to Metacritic for this information. Thank you, Metacritic! Music festivals and other festivals are coming soon, be on the lookout!       Ever been to Savannah, Georgia? Well, we are beginning the new year for Where To and Savannah is our first stop.  I haven’t put together anything for Shadow Spotlight but don’t worry it will be up and running. You’re going to notice a few changes here and there in the next coming weeks. I will post about the AWP’s Writing Conference and Bookfair which will be in Portland, Oregon on March 27-30, 2019. That’s one of the events coming up in a few months. It will be a bit of a quiet …

Note from the Editor, December 2018

12.1.18 Vol. 6 / #12 December, the last and final month of 2018. November may have been quiet, but this month…not so. Lots of stuff will be stuffed into December.  A few things to post with music and Metacritic never fails! You have veteran and new artists making new creativity with music. Gucci Mane, Van Morrison, Meghan Trainor, and others are lining up with their new releases. On the music festival front, not a lot going on. Like November, this list a bit short, but how can you miss these great festivals? Riptide, Rolling Loud, and Snowglobe, just to name a few.  I’ve haven’t been to the movie theaters a lot this year, but I’m able to pick up what looks like a winner of a film. So be on the lookout for a list of best films for 2018 from a few film critics and moviegoers.  Books, books, and more books! Winter will be around the corner, meaning that we will see what great reads will be…well already will be on the list.  This …
