I'm not really familiar with his work, but when skipping through channels one time, I caught a joke he delivered on Coach that's stuck with me ever since: "Chicken's like a steak - it's supposed to have a little pink in it."

Was kind of hoping he'd be able to intend the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony this year.

Edgar Ray Killen, involved in the 1964 Freedom Summer Murders as a Klansman and would inspire the 1988 film Mississippi Burning (the reason I wanted to note that passage here).

I’ve been on a 90’s era Irish rock kick lately-Ash, Cranberries and Hothouse Flowers have been on constant play...what a loss.

While the Cantonese version of the track over the end credits of Chungking Express is the iconic use of the song in cinema, it did also turn up a couple of years after that over the opening scenes of the Nora Ephron film re-teaming Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan, You've Got Mail (in its English language version naturally!)

Ah, of course! It's been ages since I've seen the film, I forgot the recording used was actually sung by Wong in Cantonese.

"Zombie" (my personal-favorite Cranberries song) was performed by Ruby Rose's character's band in the recently-released Pitch Perfect 3. I really liked Dolores O'Riordan's voice, it's a shocking loss.

EDIT: And I just remembered that "Dreams" is actually used as a plot-point in Sound Of My Voice, and that "Linger" is a plot-point in Click.
