Pop Culture Odds and Ends – Comic Con Aftermath Edition

Another Comic Con is in the books and once again I wasn’t there. This is proving to be one of the more expensive and difficult items to cross of my bucket list and I suspect that actually being at Comic Con is a much bigger headache than I anticipate (and I anticipate that it’s a pretty big headache). Still, this doesn’t detour me in my quest of finally making it to the granddaddy of all conventions; one of these years I will be able to score tickets and will make the journey to San Diego. I may be 100 when that happens, but it will happen eventually. I have faith in the pop culture gods.

But until that day comes, I’ll be happy with all the nuggets of info that came out of the Con. And because I am a generous person, I’ll share those bits of pop culture goodness with you. I’ve collected the best that Comic Con had to offer, as well as all the normal pop culture goodness that you’ve come to expect from these weekly roundups. Who wants to go to San Diego anyway?

  • Maisie Williams and Daniel Radcliffe took a selfie at Comic-Con with Doctor Who’s Jenna Louise Coleman (Clara) and Game of Thrones’ Hannah Murray (Gilly):

  • Swift squad member Ed Sheeran did a duet with Elton John:


  • For no apparent reason, Rob Lowe lip syncing The Sound of Music:


  • The O.C. musical happening in LA has found its leads. Maybe I’ll start a Kickstarter campaign to finance a trip to see it.
  • Paul Rudd helped welcome Jimmy Fallon back with a game of Drinko (rather than Plinko):


  • Jon Hamm pretended to be Bill Hader during an interview about the new Amy Schumer movie Trainwreck (which I cannot wait to see):

As always, we end with the supercuts and mashups:

  • A tribute to Jon Stewart:


  • Postmodern Jukebox covers Britney Spears (and it’s awesome):
