News: Out of the Office / Alien: Night Shift

4.17.19 Hello everybody! It’s Wednesday and I just wanted to let you guys know that I will be out of the office for the whole week.  Shadow Spotlight, Where To, MidWk and Weekend Updates will return next week. In the meantime, take a look at the third Alien short film Night Shift. Enjoy the rest of your week, be blessed! To celebrate Alien’s 40th anniversary and in partnership with Tongal, 20th Century Fox is releasing new Alien-universe fan-made short films leading up to Alien Day on April 26th. Written and directed by Aidan Brezonick, the synopsis for Night Shift reads: “When a missing space trucker is discovered hungover and disoriented, his co-worker suggests a nightcap as a remedy. Near closing time, they are reluctantly allowed inside the colony supply depot where the trucker’s condition worsens, leaving a young supply worker alone to take matters into her own hands.”   Featured image: unknown

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 …
