Jeffrey A. Townes (a.k.a. Dj Jazzy Jeff) also turned 42. He was probably best known as half the rap duo of 'DJ Jazzy Jeff and the Fresh Prince', but he also acted on the tv show "Fresh Prince of Bel Air" as the recurring roll of Will's best buddy, Jazz.

I can;t believe he's 42. Some of the people I watched on TV when I was young they're getting older. Its just scary that Jeffrey Townes(Jazzy Jeff) is 42 and Tiffany Amber Thieseen is 33.

Its just hard to believe because the 90's are getting farther and farther away that the people you watched on TV as a kid/teenager are just getting older along with yourself.  Its hard to believe a year like 1995 was 12 years ago.

That's what I came up with too. In fact, I just checked a couple of internet resources:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alicia_Keys

Both say 1981.
Wikipedia.org should organise there books better for http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/January_25 has it at 1980.

Yes, but when I clicked on her name, it listed it as 1981. That's screwy. There shouldn't be a disagreement as to when someone was born.

Are you sure about 1980 for Alicia Keys? Most every source I've seen has her listed as being born in 1981. Lemme check IMDB.


Here's the story on Alicia Keys that I've found out, apparently on a public records search she comes up as being born in 1980, while her record company has her born in 1981, so of course people keep changing it back and forth like idiots on wikipedia or imdb.

It's Jerry Springer's 63rd birthday today (he was born in England in 1944 and immigrated with his parents to the U.S. when he was 5 in 1949). :) 8)

P.S. Strange but true (probably scary too, lol): He's hosted the TV show now longer than he was in politics! 1991 to now (although it didn't even start becoming the way it is now until 1994 and not on par with it until the late '90s), as opposed to 1969-1982 as a poltician!

R & B/Soul Singer Wilson Pickett (Land Of 1000 Dances; Midnight Hour; Mustang Sally), 1974 - 2006


Uhm...I do believe Wilson Pickett was born in 1941, not 1974. He began his career in the 1960's, so he could not have possibly been born after that time.

In a 1996 episode, where their respective dates were unable to show up for the prom, they had to go there together. Steve was on his best behavior in front of Laura. However, when the two of them went out on the balcony, the door slammed in the face of a guy who was heading toward the door himself. This turned into a chain of accidents inside the room...but Steve and Laura were oblivious to that, as they had their backs to the window the whole time. I think that's when they made out.

That was the same episode where Carl got angry at his new neighbor, Nick (a big fat arrogant dude), who insisted that the Winslows' fence was over his property line. Eventually, Nick started chopping away at the Winslows' fence; Carl came out to pick a fight with him. Then Harriet came out and settled the dispute between them. If he'd been my neighbor, I'd talk out the situation rationally with him.

Carrie Underwood is waaaaay hotter than McPhee AND Carrie is a vegetarian.  Not that it adds to her hotness, but I admire that about her.  I was one for about 10 years, so I know how it goes.

Darrell Stingley

On August 12, 1978 the New England Patriots receiver known for acrobatic catches was hit by, Jack Tatum, the Oakland cornerback who titled his autobiography "They Call Me Assassin".  He crashed into Stingley's helmet, severing two vertebrae leaving him a quadriplegic.
Jack Tatum had been described as Black Death, a marginally clean player who collected many bounties for the injuries he inflicted on opponents. Darrell Stingly was a fast receiver from Purdue who had a good career with the Patriots. Stingley caught a pass, and was immediately hit in the neck by Tatum, who still maintains that Stingley's resulting quadraplegic paralysis was unintentional. Doubtful.

No prob Phil... I know you like Enya's music. :)


Im a big fan of Enya as well. Overall, probably my favorite singer.  Isn't that funny coming from someone who is into heavy metal and rock?  Actually, im a fan of all kinds of genres, just depends on if it interests me or not.

Two famous deaths for today (Nov. 22nd) include:

1997 - Mike Hutchence, lead vocalist of the Australian band INXS, committed suicide at age 37, in Sydney, Australia. (However, due to the large time difference between Australia and the United States, people in the U.S. were hearing about his death on the evening of the 21st.)

Evel Kenivel dead at 64. :(


The correct spelling of his name is Evel Knievel  and he died in Clearwater, Florida, on November 30, 2007, at the age of 69. He had been suffering from diabetes and pulmonary fibrosis for many years. Longtime friend Billy Rundle reported that Knievel had trouble breathing while at his residence in Clearwater, but died before the ambulance could reach the hospital. "It's been coming for years, but you just don't expect it. Superman just doesn't die, right?" was Rundle's reaction.

That's right...I'm sure there might be some listed on IMDB.com...I visit that site regularly.


Edit: I just went to http://www.imdb.com/OnThisDay?day=29&month=February, and scrolled down to where it says "On 29 February, the following people died", but didn't see any famous names listed.
