Pop Culture Odds and Ends – Making Some Progress Edition

I  went to the movies on Monday night. A year ago, this wouldn’t be news to report, but in the last six months or so, I’ve been to the movies only a handful of times. This is partially because of work, but also because there haven’t been a ton of movies that I’ve been dying to see. But the fact that I was able to carve out some time on a weeknight to hit up the cinema is progress that maybe things are improving. We saw The Big Sick, which I still hold out some hope of actually reviewing. That’s more potential progress, since I have a half dozen posts that I’ve started over the last few months and have never finished.

But even if I don’t get around to reviewing anything soon, at least you have the pop culture roundup to get you through these dark days of limited content. Get yourself caught up on everything that you might have missed with this installment of the week in pop.

Well friends, I had a hell of a week last week. Not only was work bonkers, but I also had a death in the family which obviously kind of upended my week. This week isn’t shaping up to be a lot better, frankly, but it’s time to get back on the blogging horse before y’all forget about me completely.
