Max Reebo’s Pick of the Week: “Slippin”

May 19, 2020 at 2:17 pm | Posted in Max Reebo Pick of the Week, Music, Regular Feature | Leave a comment

Max Reebo’s pick this week is “Slippin” by The Fumes.

It’s a song you’ve never heard by a band you’ve never heard of, most likely. The Fumes is an Australian band formed in 2002 around vocalist and guitarist Steve Merry. Early on they were two man band with drummer Joel Battersby, but now it’s a three man band with Jacob Mann on drums, and Ryan Hazell on bass. They’ve put out a couple albums and EP’s, but they never really hit stardom. Despite that, Steve Merry has some pretty awesome guitar riffs and the band’s song list is worth a listen. From softer songs like “Slippin” to some harder stuff like “Cuddle With the Devil.”

“Slippin” appears on their 2006 album Guns of Gold, back when the band was just Steve and Joel.

Author Holocron Series: A.C. Crispin

May 6, 2020 at 12:02 am | Posted in Author Holocron, Books, Star Wars, Star Wars Books | Leave a comment

As A.C. Crispin, Ann wrote the popular Han Solo Trilogy for Star Wars, a back story set before the events of A New Hope. She’s authored works for Star Trek and the miniseries V as well as original works such as the StarBridge series. More recently, she wrote for the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise with The Price of Freedom.

Biography

Ann Carol Crispin was born in Stamford, Connecticut on April 5, 1950 to parents George Arthur Tickell and Eleanor Hope Hooker. She went to college at the University of Maryland and graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in English Literature in 1972. Her first published novel was Yesterday’s Son, a Star Trek novel that explores Spock’s discovery that he has a son. It was the first Star Trek novel, other than the movie novelizations, to hit the New York Times Bestseller List. The previous New York Times Bestseller for the Star Trek franchise was The Wrath of Khan by Vonda N. McIntyre, who would later write the Star Wars novel The Crystal Star, which was also a New York Times Bestseller. The fact that both authors had such success in Star Trek certainly helped them in being selected to write for Star Wars. The remarkable point is that they both succeeded in the two biggest sci-fi franchises of all time, a testament to their writing talents. Continue Reading Author Holocron Series: A.C. Crispin…

Max Reebo’s Pick of the Week: “Fisherman”

May 5, 2020 at 1:37 pm | Posted in Max Reebo Pick of the Week, Music, Regular Feature | Leave a comment

Max Reebo’s pick this week is “Fisherman” by The Peach Kings.

The Peach Kings is a band I just discovered last week while looking for new music. They formed in 2010 and are composed by Paige Wood and Steven Dies. They only have one studio album and a couple EP’s so far, but they’ve got some good songs. “Fisherman” is from their 2012 EP Handsome Moves but it’s only available on vinyl. The digital EP doesn’t include it, but you can pick it up separately as a single.

If you like that one, be sure to check out their other music. “Thieves & Kings” is another good one.
