Max Reebo’s Pick of the Week: “Pink Noise King”

April 13, 2020 at 4:17 pm | Posted in Max Reebo Pick of the Week, Music, Regular Feature | Leave a comment

Max Reebo’s pick this week is “Pink Noise King” by The Brew.

The Brew is a British band from Grimsby (in northern England) formed by Jason Barwick (guitar, vocals), Kurtis Smith (drums), and Tim Smith (bass, vocals). Fun fact: Tim is Kurtis’ dad, which is something you don’t see to often with rock bands. They cut their first album in 2006 and over the years they’ve never had any lineup changes. They’ve stayed active and put out their eighth studio album last month. However, “Pink Noise King” is from their 2018 album Art of Persuasion.

If you like that one, be sure to check out their other stuff.

Author Holocron Series: Aaron Allston

April 8, 2020 at 12:33 am | Posted in Author Holocron, Books, Regular Feature, Star Wars, Star Wars Books | Leave a comment

Star Wars has given fans many books to read over the years, and for those willing delve into the old Legends titles, there’s a lot to enjoy. Today we’re kicking off a new series highlighting the authors of those old Legends novels and sharing some trivia you might enjoy. To get things started, we present Aaron Allston.

Biography

Aaron Allston was born in Corsicana, Texas on December 8, 1960. By 1982, he was an editor of the magazine Space Gamer, and the next year he worked as a freelance game designer, author of the supplement Autoduel Champions, and helped launch the magazine Fantasy Gamer. He wrote his first novel in 1988 called Web of Danger which was packaged as a two for one book along with Acolytes of Darkness by Flint Dille and David Marconi. It would take 10 more years before readers would see his first Star Wars novel, Wraith Squadron, which kicked off a long relationship with the franchise. From 1998 to 2012, Allston graced fans with thirteen Star Wars novels and two short stories. Sadly, Allston passed away in 2014 from heart failure. I met Aaron at Star Wars Celebration VI back in 2012 in Orlando, Florida, one of my favorite Celebrations because of that. It’s a memory I’ll cherish. While Aaron may be gone from the world, his books live on. Continue Reading Author Holocron Series: Aaron Allston…

Max Reebo’s Pick of the Week: “Heavy”

April 7, 2020 at 3:45 pm | Posted in Max Reebo Pick of the Week, Music, Regular Feature | Leave a comment

Max Reebo’s pick this week is “Heavy” by The Glorious Sons.

I came across this band via their song “S.O.S.” and it led me to dive into their catalog to find more good songs, which they have quite a few of. This Canadian band has been around since 2011 and they have three studio albums. “Heavy” is off their first album The Union which came out in 2014.

The band features Brett Emmons on vocals, Jay Emmons and Andrew Young (whose been replaced by Chris Koster) on guitar, Chris Huot on bass, and Adam Paquette on drums.
