We’ve been as busy as a horde of non-unionized elves here at PopCult this week. Last week we wrapped up the hilariously expansive 2016 PopCult Gift Guide, and the plan this week was to play catch-up and bring you a buttload of PopCult photo essays that would depict your PopCulteer’s recent travels.

We have been posting a lot of photo essays, but not at the rate we had planned. You see, we’ve developed a few glitches here at PopCult central, and that has slowed things down a bit and limited our ability to provide captions for all the photos. So we are going to continue posting bonus photo essays until the end of the year. We still have a lot of cool stuff to show you.

Speaking of cool stuff, please don’t forget that we are on XMAS overdrive and you can stay in the holiday spirit all week long on The AIR.

bal-landau-eugene-murphy-jr-interview-2015We’ve loaded our little internet radio station to the hilt with special Christmas programming, including an hour-long edition of The Third Shift that premieres Friday at 9 PM, with special guest, Eugene Landau Murphy.

Listen to the AIR website, or unwrap this peppermint-flavored embedded radio player right here…

We will also sneak in replays of The Third Shift all weekend long on The AIR.

Christmas For ALL

With Christmas taking place on Sunday we need to remember that not everybody has a family to go home to. Some folks just have no one, while others have been exiled from their families due to various reasons.

With a political climate that seems to want to see America hate again, there are people who are not welcome, or not comfortable spending the holidays with their families. Chase Henderson and Andrea Anderson had an idea to help people in this situation, and Keeley Steele offered up Starling’s Coffee and Provisions on Charleston’s East End to make it happen. Thus, Out on the Town for the Holidays was born. We quote from the Facebook event page (where we also stole the image of the rainbow Christmas tree at the top of this post).

All kinds are welcome for Christmas in West Virginia.

Can’t go home for Christmas? Or just want to get out of the house for the Holidays?

Join us at Starlings this Christmas for food and fun from 5pm to 8pm. The Laser Beams with Nate Cesco will be hosting an open mic night to distract us from whatever remaining horrors 2016 has for us. All this just for a suggested donation of $5 to help pay for the entertainment and food. Any surplus of donations will be given to Covenant House of Charleston – so feel free to keep giving.

This will be a pan-religious, pan-sexual, personal pan celebration of whatever you’d like. Then why have it on Christmas? Well, everything else is closed and everyone else went home.

Any questions call Chase Henderson at 3048810600.

Bill Lynch did a nice write-up about this in the Gazette-Mail. It’s truly in the spirit of the season.

That’s it for the PopCulteer this week. I hope that all my readers have a peaceful and happy holiday weekend. Our regular features will be here, and the photo essays will return next week.
