note: since creating this script, Popurls turned into a paid service, this script may not work properly with their updated design
I can highly recommend theweblist.net as a good and free alternative

All colors and styles are an *exact* re-creation of the original site, the css values were copied from a locally saved html backup file that I found on my hard drive, dated 2014, from the original popurls.com black site.
