Pop Culture Odds and Ends – Goodbye To You Edition


Pop culture goodbyes are never easy and it seems like they are happening with increasing frequency. This week we not only sad goodbye to Mad Men, but we’ll bid David Letterman an adieu from late night television. Both of these endings make me a little sad; Mad Men was one of my favorite shows of all time and I feel like I grew up with Letterman. So it’s been a rough couple of days for someone like me who doesn’t like change.

But the show must go on. Once again, I’ve searched far and wide on the Internet to bring you some of the pop culture news and highlights that you might have missed. There may be big changes to the landscape afoot, but that does nothing to slow down the pop culture machine. So sit back, relax and get yourself caught up on the world of pop.
