Pop Culture Odds and Ends – Good Riddance 2016 Edition


There are only four days left in 2016 and for a lot of people that feels like 4 days too many. This has been a challenging year for a lot of people for a lot of different reasons: personal, political, numerous high-profile celebrity deaths. I feel a little guilty that my year has not been as crappy as it was for a lot of people that I know; 2016 has not been sunshine and roses for me either, but comparatively I’ve gotten through the year relatively unscathed. I mean, how bad can a year really be when I saw Adele, took my sister-in-law to see Hamilton, and visited the museum of ice cream? But I’ll still be happy to put 2016 in the record books and move on. I can only hope that 2017 brings more happiness and comfort to people. This year has just been brutal. I mean, we’ve gotten to the point where someone has even set up a GoFundMe page to try and save Betty White from 2016. John Oliver, as usual, puts it best:


Thanks to the holidays, it’s a relatively light week for pop culture so the roundup is a little on the short side this week. But there’s still plenty of pop culture goodness in there that you might have missed during this crazy time of year. So while we all collectively hope that 2017 is going to better, get yourself caught up on the glorious world of pop culture.
