Retro Reviews: ‘Ahsoka’ by E. K. Johnston

Ahsoka by E. K. Johnston, is a young adult novel in the canon that was released in October of 2016. 

This book has an interesting place in my heart, because I had already started reading Star Wars books in 2016, but this was the first book that I bought on release day and read in a 24 hour period of time. 

After reading Queen’s Shadow and Queen’s Peril, I was disappointed with E. K. Johnston’s writing as a whole. When I realized I’d have to reread Ahsoka, I was afraid I wouldn’t like it now as much as I did back in 2016. 

I was wrong.

Max Reebo’s Pick of the Week: Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh

October 19, 2020 at 3:48 pm | Posted in Max Reebo Pick of the Week, Music, Regular Feature | Leave a comment

The band Say Hi still has one of the weirdest names I’ve ever come across for a song. It’s “Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh” (that’s eight Oh’s) off of their album appropriately named Oohs and Aahs.

I came across this song a long time ago on Amazon when I was searching for free songs. For those who don’t know, you can find free songs on Amazon. Just search MP3 Music and change the search settings to Price Lowest to High. While it may sound too good to be true, the catch is sifting through all the crappy music to find something worthwhile.

It’s funny, I’ve always liked this song but I’ve never bothered to search to see if the band had any other good songs. I’ll have to remember to check into that. For now, enjoy the tune. It’s bit odd but also a lot of fun.

Max Reebo’s Pick of the Week: Ballad of Miss Kate

October 14, 2020 at 8:21 pm | Posted in Max Reebo Pick of the Week, Music, Regular Feature | Leave a comment

This week’s pick is “Ballad of Miss Kate” by Matt Costa.

Some songs have wicked beats, others have provocative lyrics. Then there are the ones that tell stories. “The Ballad of Miss Kate” by Matt Costa is one of those. Kick back, turn it up, and listen to the story.

“The Ballad of Miss Kate” is off of Songs We Sing, Matt Costa‘s first full length studio album. He hasn’t put out too many albums to date, but if you’re looking for more, I highly recommend his song “TV Gods”.

Retro Reviews: ‘Aftermath: Life Debt’ by Chuck Wendig

October 5, 2020 at 8:24 am | Posted in Books, Random House, Regular Feature, Retro Reviews, Reviews, Star Wars, Star Wars Books | Leave a comment
Tags: , ,

Aftermath: Life Debt is the second novel in the Aftermath trilogy written by Chuck Wendig and released in July of 2016. 

When I first read Life Debt, I liked it a whole lot more than the first Aftermath book. I think that this has the effect of being more popular because it includes major characters like Han and Leia, but it also kind of explains what’s happening to the greater galaxy at large. While those are things the first book was lacking, I still had several problems with this book, many of which were present in the first book.
