Pop Culture Odds and Ends – The Final Countdown Edition


Election 2016 is almost over and I couldn’t be happier about that. I’m a political scientist and I usually eat up presidential elections with a spoon, but I’ve been ready for this election to be over pretty much since it began. I’m so disinterested that I’m not even going to be home for the final debate tonight; while everyone else is watching that sh*tshow, I’ll be seeing Louis C.K. perform standup, which is a much better way to spend an evening. The only potential downside to the election ending is that it will eliminate a topic of small talk around the office; I’m not a morning person and I don’t particularly enjoy pointless chitchat, so I’m not even that bummed for that to be coming to a close as well.

I would, however, be sad if the pop culture roundup came to an end and lucky for all of you that doesn’t look like its going to happen. So take a break from the election and get yourself caught up on the pop culture that you might have missed.
