In honor of Women’s History Month, several of Byte’s feature writers have compiled a group of groundbreaking female artists that have impacted the music scene in profound and exciting ways. These artists push the envelope and dare to create within a traditionally male dominated-industry.
Picture this: a new band, who has only been releasing singles for the last two years, gets picked up by a boutique label and, through childhood connections, suddenly gets the opportunity to record at the famous Blackbird Studios in Nashville with only four hours to produce an entire EP.
In honor of Women's History Month, Adonnika asks Ball State the Byte-ing Question, who is your favorite female creator?
An extensive line of people stretched around the left side of the building and trailed deep into the parking lot—some lounging in sleeping bags, some stationed in tents, some sat in lawn chairs, and some curled up in blankets—all in anticipation of seeing the alternative/indie group, The Band CAMINO. Due to the pandemic, the Memphis boys were forced to halt production. Now they are back and better than ever, bringing Hastings and flor along for the journey, they are ready to give their diehard fans the show they’ve dreamed about for the past two and a half years.
Editor’s note: This Byte reporter is a former member of the Department of Theatre and Dance and the Byte editorial board has a member who is an actor in this production.
Warm-toned yellow lights glisten onto the sidewalk from a vertical sign that reads “ARAGON.” I walk inside the venue and see elegant decor that transports me back to what I imagine it looked like on opening day in the mid-1920s. The green and yellow mosaic-style, carpet-covered, double staircase awaits, guiding me to the stage. I am met with the maple-colored wooden dance floor where all of the general admission ticket-holders stand, waiting anxiously for their beloved artist to appear onstage: Aminé. Looking up from the dance floor, I see painted artworks of space, filled with star constellations and the planets. This is definitely one of the most well-designed venues I’ve ever stepped foot in. Bodies, mostly teenagers and young adults, start to flood this once-empty area in preparation for the Portland native rapper/singer to commence the "Best Tour Ever Tour."
In this inaugural episode of Reality Check host Emma Fullen and her guest, Bernadette Harding dive into the first episode of Temptation Island and let listeners know just what to expect from this fast-paced show!
My descent into the Warhammer fandom began only a couple years ago. Hearing my older brothers talk about Space marines, Primarchs, and someone named the Emperor of Mankind slowly piqued my interest over the years. The banter and the references all culminate into a fateful decision of me pressing play on a seemingly harmless lore video on YouTube. That small moment was the beginning of the end. The only thing I could see before me was a gleeful obsession.
Chocobo Racing launched on the PlayStation One (PS1) all the way back in March of 1999. It was easily one of my favorite games to play growing up. Since then, I’ve always hoped Square Enix would green light a sequel to it. I lost hope for a while when I learned they announced and canceled a sequel on the Nintendo 3DS. Thus, when Chocobo GP showed up in the September 2021 Nintendo Direct— I was ecstatic. Come launch day; however, my excitement quickly turned.

When it comes to superheroes, there is none more widely known than Bruce Wayne / Batman. Ever since his debut in Detective Comics #27 in 1939, the character has graced every form of media that you can imagine: comic books, TV shows, video games, etc. One arena in which the Caped Crusader has truly flourished is film. Since 1943, there have been nine actors who have portrayed the character in film, most notably Adam West, Michael Keaton, and Christian Bale.

The Texas Chainsaw Massacre franchise has a long and storied history of sequels, remakes, and reboots. The sheer number of new timelines is convoluted even in this age of constantly reviving long-dead franchises for nostalgia’s moneymaking powers.
Episode 7 takes a break from the trauma of Percy de Rolo and gives a nice, long, scandalous look at our favorite gnome of depravity, Scanlan Shorthalt. This serves as a much-needed levity during a wave of grim backstory and deepening character relations.
Episode 5 of The Legend of Vox Machina dives into the dark past of Percival de Rolo and the uncertain future of Pike as the party takes on the dark and dangerous Briarwoods of Whitestone. Backstories and character motivations are revealed to everyone, including the viewers, as though we are all huddled around, listening intently.
Episode 4 shows the aftermath of Vox Machina’s dramatic meeting with the Briarwoods. From festering old wounds to the birth of new ones, Vox Machina shows that demons of all types tend to find them regardless of house arrest.
