Each week KSR’s Funkhouser collects the best of pop culture. The Entertation Index collects the best of the week for your consumption.
Anatomy, Grey’s — Actress Jerrika Hinton who, in the season finale of Grey’s Anatomy, escaped a rapist, saved a child and blew up the hospital, has decided to leave the show. Audiences still have yet to receive the news, as they left the show seasons ago. ZING!
Cornell, Chris — Sad news I know you’ve heard by now: Soundgarden and Audioslave frontman Chris Cornell passed away after a Detroit show Wednesday night, which the Wayne County, Michigan police now believe to be the result of suicide by hanging. Cornell was an amazing talent, this is very sad, and if you at home have EVER have thoughts like this I urge you to talk to someone. Please. Do it today.
Crash News Dancing, Car– What happens when a car crashes and someone tells you that the parking lot outside your office is being aired live on TV by an overhead news helicopter? I hope you’ll do what this guy did, and get out to that parking lot and get busy. Carpe diem, Scottsdale guy. Carpe Diem.
Keith, Toby — President Donald Trump is preparing to head to Saudi Arabia and, as the Associate Press has announced, conservative country music singer Toby Keith is going with him to perform a concert only for men. I guess that means…guys, I’m tired. Just…so…tired…I can’t. I just can’t anymore. Forget it.
Not Hot Dog — Silicon Valley fans, take heed; Jin Yang’s fictional “Not Hot Dog” app, which informs you if the food you’re looking at is a hot dog or not, is a real app from something called “SeeFood Industries” and is available in the Apple/Android app store. You know, in case you have any use for it.
Roseanne — In these trying times, it’s good to know that great things can still happen to you. Like, you remember the other day, when you were at work talking to your friends and you were all “You know what show I wish was back? Roseanne. I miss that show every day of my life.” Well guess what, Keith? It IS! DREAMS COME TRUE, KEITH!
Tambor, Jeffrey — Oh man, you guys are gonna LOVE this. When Arrested Development and Transparent star Jeffrey Tambor recently appeared on Kelly Ripa and Ryan Seacrest’s show (I don’t know what it’s called now, because whatever), Ryan Seacrest mistakenly told Tambor he always remembers the Emmy-winning actor because he “was the scary guy in Ghost.” Oops. That’s like your girlfriend telling you “I love you so much because you remind me of Meat Loaf.”
