Pop Culture Odds and Ends – Wait, Wednesday Is Tomorrow? Edition

Three day holiday weekends are tremendous, but they mess with my routine and wind up confusing me. Tuesday was my first day in the office, but it felt very much like a Monday with all its shenanigans and general annoyances. It wasn’t until I got home that it dawned on me that today was actually Tuesday and that I hadn’t even started this week’s pop culture roundup. Usually by now I have about half the post written. Not good. Thankfully Tuesday TV is mostly garbage and I could clean out some stuff on my DVR that didn’t require my full attention while I powered through doing a week’s worth of work in one night. To be honest, the results ain’t too shabby.

So while I hope that I didn’t miss any deadlines or meetings because I don’t know what day it is, kick back and get caught up on some of the pop culture that you may have missed in the last week.

  •  Matt Damon and Ben Affleck – REUNITED!
  • I was so sad to hear that the great Jan Hooks had passed away; SNL gave her a beautiful tribute:


  • I am loving Foo Fighters week on Letterman; here’s last night’s performance with Heart:


  • What happens when you get a lot of people dressed up as Deadpool in the same room? DANCE PARTY!

  • Amy Poehler’s author photo is everything:
