Fun-Size Friday | 5-29-20 | “Dancing With Myself” Edition

Well I’ll be darned, looks like it’s time for another installment of Fun-Size Friday! I guess that means we made it through another week after all, which is pretty awesome as far as these things go. Time to relax and indulge myself a bit by going through the last seven or so days of pop culture news to see what’s new and distracting out in the world. Of course this won’t be an exhaustive summary; I’lI just be cherry picking a few of the ones I personally find interesting and then gabbing about each one for about two hundred words or less. I mean, it is the weekend, and I’ve got other stuff I want to do with my free time, you know? Anyway, down to business…

Fun-Size Friday | 5-22-20 | “End Of The Week Ennui” Edition

Fun-Size Friday: much like that shiny penny you picked up off the ground the other day, it may not be worth much right now, but grab enough of them and it might eventually amount to something, possibly. In a more literal sense, Fun-Size is a time for me to talk about pop culture news that makes me happy for the future, or at the very least intrigued to see how it all turns out. It’s also a nice way to help me get into a positive headspace before the weekend starts, so that’s good too. Right, that’s enough introduction for this week, let’s take a look at our “appetizers”…

Fun-Size Friday | 5-8-20 | “School’s Out For Summer” Edition

It’s (inexplicably) time for another installment of Fun-Size Friday, where I skim through the last week of pop culture news, cherry-pick the stuff that’s interesting to me, and then boil my thoughts down into two hundred words or less. It’s less of a full-course meal and more of a “serving size”, in that it’s small, barely sates your appetite, and will be largely ignored by the vast majority of people. So, whether you’re fighting off a deadly pandemic, murder hornets, or just good old-fashioned boredom, Fun-Size is the sort of mindless diversion you need to get through the next three-to-five minutes of your day. I mean, maybe you don’t need it per se, but it’s been a long week and I could sure use a pick-me-up right now. Right, enough beating around the bush, let’s get to work!

Fun-Size Friday | 5-1-20 | “Remember To Wear A Mask In Public” Edition

Rejoice, Denizens of the Internet, for Fun-Size Friday has returned from it’s weekly tour through the bowels of the Internet to share short tales of pop culture and general frivolity! Admittedly it’s not that much, but if by some bizarre set of circumstances you didn’t log on to the Internet over the last few days — an increasingly unlikely notion given our current circumstances — some of these little tidbits might surprise and even delight you. So, whether you’re stuck at home or stealing a few minutes away from your essential work, here’s a fun-sized something for you…

Fun-Size Friday | 4-24-20 | “WASH YOUR HANDS” Edition

Ding-ding, y’all! Fun-Size Friday is back for yet another round, because I do not know when to stay down. As per usual, I’ll be looking at a few geek related highlights that caught my eye from the past week and adding a little commentary of my own. This is by no means an exhaustive recap, but if you haven’t already skimmed the various other pop culture sites the past few days and you enjoy reading second-hand news in two-hundred word chunks, this’ll do nicely. Now that I’ve covered my obligatory introduction, let’s jump into my (obligatory) post!

Fun-Size Friday | 4-17-20 | Extreme Home Takeover: Quarantine Edition

Keep cool, Hypothetical Reader, it’s just another edition of Fun-Size Friday. Though the pop culture well may have dried up a bit as of late, I figure there’s still just enough that happened in the last week to last me a couple hundred words at least. I mean, I’m not calling this thing “fun-size” for nothing. With all that out of the way, let’s see what we can scrape up this week.
