Pop Culture Odds and Ends – Star Wars Day Edition

Pop-Culture-608x500

If you are anything like me, you woke up this morning to find your Facebook feed dominated by people wishing you a “Happy Star Wars Day.” As loyal readers know, I do not give a hoot about Star Wars (still haven’t seen The Force Awakens) but I do appreciate the celebration of pop culture in any form. So though I can barely tell a C-3PO from and R2-D2 , May the fourth be with you. Go blow up a Death Star to commemorate.

It’s also Wednesday, which means that in addition to getting your Wookiee on today, it’s also pop culture roundup day. What a glorious time to be alive! As always, I’ve searched the Internet to gather for you the best that world of pop culture has had to offer in the last seven days. There’s a little bit of something for everyone here, so kick back, relax and get yourself caught up on all the happenings in pop culture.
