The PopCulteer

This week your PopCulteer is juggling technical issues and pressing deadlines, so this PopCulteer will be a short one. Before we get into the “Stuff To Do” this weekend, please check out my post from earlier this week on Kanawha Players and their fundraising efforts. The 92-year-old organization is trying to avert extinction and it would be cool if we could help keep the Players alive. Your PopCulteer will be at the Ed Wood Double Feature this evening, and there’s all kinds of other ways you can pitch in over the next few weeks.

On to a truncated list of stuff…
