So I’m pretty sure we’re all over the Emmy’s at this point.

Pop Culture Week in Review for 8/17-8/24

Upfront apology—this is a bit sad. Today, in my regular podcast listening I found out that comedian Tig Notaro was recently diagnosed with breast cancer. I would like to first (well, I guess, second) say that I don’t know this woman. I find her absolutely enjoyable but I don’t actively follow her career. That said, when I heard she was diagnosed, it was as if a close friend or relative of my very own had been given this news. I know a lot about her from the various podcasts she’s done and she’s had a string of really, really awful things happen in her life. Notaro was hospitalized with pneumonia that developed into a bacterial infection and lost 30 pounds. A few days after she was released from the hospital, her mom died after falling and hitting her head. Then, her girlfriend broke up with her. And now she has cancer. Oh, and all that happened in the last FOUR MONTHS. I just cannot understand how all that can happen to one person. I’m a little ball of emotion right now but I highly encourage you to check out her comedy and laugh through sadness.

As a general rule, I do not blog about the personal lives of celebrities- the weddings, the divorces, the babies, other general tabloid fodder.  But a lot of shit has gone down recently that I just can’t ignore.

What I’m currently digging: AV Club’s “AV Undercover” series.  Grouplove covers Andrew W.K.  Young the Giant covers R. Kelly.  Other things cover other things.  They are currently in the middle of their third series and I highly recommend checking out the … Read More
