Max Reebo’s Pick of the Week: “Heavenly Creatures”

December 22, 2020 at 9:07 am | Posted in Max Reebo Pick of the Week, Music, Regular Feature | Leave a comment

Max Reebo’s pick this week is “Heavenly Creatures” by Band of Skulls.

“Heavenly Creatures” is off a digital EP they released this year of some bonus tracks. It’s a nice mellow song to enjoy, not fast paced or heavy, but not depressing either.

Retro Reviews: ‘Thrawn’ by Timothy Zahn

December 9, 2020 at 1:00 am | Posted in Books, Random House, Regular Feature, Retro Reviews, Reviews, Star Wars, Star Wars Books | Leave a comment
Tags: ,

Thrawn by Timothy Zahn is the first of many novels in the canon about everyone’s favorite blue skinned, red eyed Chiss. It was released in April of 2017.

Timothy Zahn has a long and famous history with Star Wars. His Heir to the Empire trilogy not only launched the Expanded Universe (now called Legends as we know it) but also created one of Star Wars’ most famous characters – Grand Admiral Thrawn. Since then, Timothy Zahn has written numerous Star Wars novels, some with Thrawn and some without. However, when Lucasfilm launched the canon, all that went out the window. And so, we thought, went the possibility of seeing Thrawn again.

Obviously we were all wrong.

Retro Reviews: ‘Empire’s End’ by Chuck Wendig

November 25, 2020 at 11:19 am | Posted in Books, Random House, Regular Feature, Retro Reviews, Reviews, Star Wars, Star Wars Books | Leave a comment
Tags: , ,

Aftermath: Empire’s End is the final book in the Aftermath trilogy, written by Chuck Wendig and released in February 2017. 

It seems like each Aftermath book has a different genre or story style, while still having the same underlying themes and tones. Aftermath is a kind of a heist book where a ragtag group comes together to rescue someone. Life Debt is more of a traditional star wars book with a hint of political thriller added to the mix. Empire’s End is more of an epic war book with some smaller stories happening inside it. I like those aspects of all three, but because they are each so different, it makes it harder to like Aftermath as a cohesive trilogy.

Max Reebo’s Pick of the Week: ‘Kick You When You’re Down’

November 23, 2020 at 7:28 am | Posted in Max Reebo Pick of the Week, Music, Regular Feature | Leave a comment

Max Reebo’s pick this week is “Kick You When You’re Down” off AC/DC’s new album Power Up.

AC/DC is one of my favorite bands. The last time I saw them was in St. Louis for their Rock or Bust tour. After that, they did a show in Kansas City, then Brian Johnson had to quit the tour because of damage to his ear drums. They got Axel Rose to finish off the tour, then their bass player Cliff announced he was retiring. Their long time drummer Phil Rudd was in legal trouble and doing some jail time. It looked really bad for the future of the band.

Then, with all the bad things in 2020, AC/DC got back together and cut a new album. Brian was back. Cliff was back. Phil was back. It was like old times.

Having already listened to the new album a bunch since it came out in October, I’d have to say “Kick You When You’re Down” is my favorite. There’s a lot of good songs, but to me, that one is the stand out.
