Pirate’s Price by Lou Anders is a collection of stories all featuring Hondo Ohnaka. The stories take place over multiple time periods ranging from the time of the Empire to the events after The Last Jedi. While this is a good book, it’s an even better audiobook as it’s narrated by the voice of Hondo Ohnaka himself, Jim Cummings. Click here to read our full review.

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

May 6, 2019 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 “Revival” by Thundermother.

Thundermother is a Swedish rock band out of Växjö (which calls itself the greenest city in Europe). They were founded in 2009 by Filippa Nässil and have had a varying lineup since then. The steady members of the band split in 2017, with two albums under the belts and in the middle of a tour. Filippa re-formed the band with her on guitar still, Guernica Mancini on vocals, Sara Pettersson on bass, and Emelie Johansson on drums. In 2018 they released their self-titled album Thundermother which includes the song “Revival”.

“Revival” is a rock song with some AC/DC sounding riffs that just catches my ear. I love it. There’s some good songs on the album, but another one in particular worth checking out is “Survival Song”.
