To pop up, or not to pop up?

I'm building a blog-like site that will have lots of old stories about a particular rural area. I'll be adding lots of supplemental information about some of the places, people and things the author talks about, and I'm trying to decide how to display it.

I'm building the site on Wordpress (either a custom theme or a heavily-altered theme). I think I would like to keep everything on one page. I've thought about using lightboxes of some sort, or having little pop-ups that hover at the side of the browser.
The content in the boxes (or whatever) will be comprised of text, links, pictures, and probably video.
I would like your ideas on how best to do this. What is the state-of-the-cool in pop-up technology? I want to keep the page looking consistent and nice. Recommendations for specific Wordpress plugins welcome, as well as opinions about how best (or worst) to do this.
