Pop Culture Odds and Ends – Early Bird Edition

Surprise – you are getting the pop culture roundup a day early this week since I already had it done and am having a tough time putting in to words the review that I was originally going to post today. So I decided to mix things up a bit and keep you all on your toes. Spontaneity is the spice of life.

With the holidays, this was a relatively quiet week in pop culture, but I searched far and wide to cultivate the best of what’s out there. So while I try and get my thoughts together for the rest of this week’s posts, enjoy your early bird edition of the week in pop.
