Pop Culture Odds and Ends – End of May Edition

Even though it was just Memorial Day weekend, I still can’t believe that we are in the final days of May already. The summer hasn’t even officially started and I already feel like its flying by. Part of the issue is that I’m already almost booked up every weekend for the next three months, which sounds both awesome and exhausting. I like to be busy, but I think I’ve overdone it a little. At this rate, the next thing I’ll know it will be September and the summer will be nothing but a blur of ticket stubs and road trips. Things just need to slow down a little bit.

Of course, the world of pop culture slows down for no one and I’ve done my best to capture everything that you might have missed in the last seven days with this week’s roundup. So while I, Like Cher, try to figure out how to turn back time, catch yourself up on all the pop culture goodness that the world has to offer.
