Each week KSR’s Funkhouser collects the best of pop culture. The Entertation Index collects the best of the week for your consumption.
Auctioneers — If you’re ready for the best thing you’ve seen all day, I’m ready to deliver it right to you. Here’s a bunch of auctioneers backed up by hip-hop beats and YOU’RE WELCOME.
Beer — It’s the Fourth of July weekend, which means relaxing outdoors with your favorite beer — and from the always-excellent Clickhole comes a list of eleven microbrews which need to be on your list this weekend. #5 might surprise you!
Broadway, Off — A new Off-Broadway theater production in New York City entitled Here I sit, Broken Hearted features a bare stage actors appearing seated on toilets in four open bathroom stalls. Original titles for the play included Mary Poopins, Craparet, The ‘Deucers, Dooky and the Beast, SCats, The O-Ring & I, Guys and Stalls, Annie Get Your Dung, La Cage Aux Stool and Loaf-lahoma. We good here? Okay then.
Facebook — Facebook has announced a change in its newsfeed algorithm which will in theory bring more news from your friends and family to your page and less stories from news outlets like The New York Times or Buzzfeed. Unless your crazy bearded uncle who lives on a farm in Michigan and drunkenly calls in the middle of the night to tell you Obama is trying to take his guns also lands a job covering politics for the New York Times. Then you probably won’t see much of a difference.
Pyramid, Great — Due to errors in construction, researchers have discovered that Egypt’s Great Pyramid of Giza was actually built lopsided, with the west side of the architectural icon being slightly longer than the east. As a result of the findings the pyramid has been downgraded from “Great” to “Eh…Okay.”
Tetris — A collaboration between China and the US will yield not one but three films based on the ever-popular Russian-themed stacking video game Tetris, which will be a science-fiction based story line about “creating order from chaos.” Naturally, studios are expecting it to be a real blockbuster. See what I did there? Because of the blocks. You get it. Man, I’m on fire today.
White, Snow — Newly released artwork from Disney’s 1937 classic reveals as many as sixteen “rejected” dwarf characters for the film, including characters named “Baldy,” Deafy,” “Stuffy” and “Wheezy.” Don’t fret, however; though they didn’t make the cut they’re all currently enjoying their jobs on the NCAA Tournament Selection Committee.
