Pop Culture Odds and Ends – Three in a Row Edition

Pop-Culture-608x500

Holy smokes – three blog posts in three days! It’s like a blogging renaissance. I haven’t done this since the heady early days when I used to blog five days a week. LOL – don’t expect this frequency to continue; soon enough, I’m sure I’ll slow down to a more manageable schedule. But right now I have a backlog of content and since I’ve given myself permission to blog less I find that I’m actually enjoying it more. Funny how that works out.

Of course one blog post that I always look forward to doing is the weekly pop culture roundup. Now that the holidays are over, the pop culture business has picked up steam and there’s a lot more going on. So get yourself caught up on everything that you might have missed with this look at the week in pop.
