Pop Culture Odds and Ends – July Jubilation Edition

How exactly is it July already? It feels like this summer is just flying by; it’s hard to believe that Independence Day is this Saturday – wasn’t it just Memorial Day? Things that I’ve planned that seemed so far away are now coming up in rapid succession; after a few weekends off, I’m back to being booked until the end of August. Time just needs to slow down a little bit. Ferris Bueller was right: “Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.”

As usual, I’ve searched high and low to round up all that the world of pop culture has to offer. Check out what you may have missed in the last seven day’s with this week’s potpourri of pop culture.
