There's a lot of stuff going on in the world of pop culture. You don't have time for it all. So we grab all the best bits and give them to you in a single post. Because somebody had to. Enjoy.
We're back with all the pop culture news you need in bite-sized chunks so you can, you know, get on with having a life or something.
It's a pop culture jungle out there. Rather than select as your guide a website that doesn't give a damn about you, take us along. We promise not to walk out of the underbrush wearing your bandoleer, if you know what I'm saying.
In other Amazon news, Mac OSX Snow Leopard is now available from Amazon. And if you were going to buy it anyway, if you do it through us--if you buy any of this stuff you were going to buy anyway from us--then we get kickbacks that support the site. So thanks in advance.
Because there's a lot of pop culture stuff going on. We sift out the best bits so you don't have to, saving you time and energy. Somebody has to go have a life, right?

Well, it's a dark day for my generation and 80s cinema--the latter certainly shaped the former. And one of the directors who defined movies in the 80s was John Hughes. His filmography has not only the high school love trifecta of Sixteen Candles, Pretty in Pink and Some Kind of Wonderful (all three of which he scribed--and he directed Candles) but also the high school drama of The Breakfast Club. And there's also the classic Weird Science, one of my favorite John Candy starring roles in Uncle Buck, and the mayhem of Vacation.
And of course, the high school character everyone wanted to be...
Mr. Hughes: you gave my peers and I a crapload of movies to remember and quote often...and some great memories. Thanks for everything.
There's plenty going on in the world of pop culture. But you have a life--we don't. That's why we do this: news in quick digestible chunks so you can be about your business, armed with geek info. You're welcome.
San Diego Comic-Con happened this weekend. We, like you, are trying to pick up the pieces. We'll break out the Shop-Vac and let you see the results. You just relax and have an espresso.
