Pop Culture Talk Video Blog: July

Hi Everyone.  Two vids in one day!  Oh yeah.  Aren’t we on a roll?  🙂

In this past month’s Pop Culture Talk, we delve into Jurassic World Fallen Kingdom before we head back into Netflix territory with both Luke Cage Season Two and Voltron.  After that, we chat up Marvel’s Cloak and Dagger, which airs on Freeform and then finish the conversation with Westworld.


We are shooting two new vids tonight, which we promise to get out to you later this week!  What will we be talking about?  Well, you’ll just have to wait a few more days to find out.

The Female Perspective: April Fools Fun!

Welcome! This is a Tri-weekly blog by Author J.L. Metcalf where I discuss anything and everything that strikes my fancy. If you have ideas on what you think I should write about, please send me an email via my website

For now, sit back, relax and enjoy the blog!

It’s April Fools Day, a day that I find equal parts amusing and annoying. I can’t say I’ve ever been a fan of playing or having tricks played on me. Maybe that makes me a party poop but hey, such is life! I know it’s part of the day.

To that end, I wanted to do a quick post today about some of the funnier, more annoying posts I’ve come across today. Read on and be amused! And come back on Friday for your regularly scheduled post.


1. Stephen King will write for The Walking Dead

Today a post has been making the rounds saying that Mr. King is going to pen the season opener for next years Walking Dead (I totally fell for it too). Which is an intriguing concept and it definitely made me click the link to read more, I then read about how he’s going to kill a bunch of people off, including the guy with the crossbow. Hmmmm…perhaps this is fake?

Click the link to see! (It’s pretty funny)

2. Voltron Kitty Condo

The Voltron Kitty Condo!
The Voltron Kitty Condo!

Every year, ThinkGeek creates some pretty funny gag items that make you laugh and also make you kind of hopeful. This years crop is no different, they include a 360-degree Selfie Stick and this awesome Voltron Kitty Condo that I really wish was real! They also have some awesome Power Wheels Desert Drifters, straight outta Mad Max!

3. Alex & Ani Bought Naming Rights to Rhode Island

The smallest state with the longest name, just got longer thanks to Alex & Ani.

This one really cracked me up, not only is the title enough to make you want to click, the article attached is actually very funny. Well done Motif Magazine!

4. CERN Researches Confirm the Existence of The Force

Real the Force Is...

I love this one, its fun and … well, fun!

“The Force is what gives a particle physicist his powers,” said CERN theorist Ben Kenobi of the University of Mos Eisley, Tatooine.
