1940 - Alex Trebek That smug bastard host of Jeopardy! Was born on this day. We painted him with a mustache because that’s how he properly exists, with a fucking mustache!
*Has the answer on the damn cards
*Shaved his mustache in august of 1997
*Mother is a whore
1964 - David Spade was raised in Phoenix, so that is why he is such a bratty little douche bag. He is funny and was great on SNL, but Ellen DeGeneres hair isn’t gonna save you when Chris Farley dies, dude, sorry.
*Coneheads (underrated funny movie)
*Tommy Boy (a classic movie)
*Joe Dirt (actually a pretty funny movie)
*Just Shoot Me!
1965 - John Leguizamo is the feisty fast talking character-actor, Mexican or Columbian or whatever kind of brown he is, and I can make that joke because I am brown, actor who can play heroes, Shakespeare, and gangsters with over 100 movies to his name.
*Carlito’s Way (spoiler!)
* Romeo + Juliet
* Moulin Rouge!
*Vanishing on 7th Street
1963 - The Beatles’ first U.S. album, “Introducing… The Beatles” was released. This is important because it is the start of the greatest band to ever exist.
*I Saw Her Standing There
*Love Me Do
*Do You Want to Know a Secret
*Greatest Band Ever
1947 - Danny Glover is too old for this shit. He hasn’t had a lot of leading roles, but like Leguizamo, he’s a fantastic screen presence and has more than 140 screen credits to his name.
*The Color Purple
*The Royal Tenenbaums
*The Prince of Egypt
2004 - The September 11 commission’s final report was released. The 575-page report concluded that hijackers exploited “deep institutional failings within our government.”
*What did we do about it?
*Used it as an excuse
*Made it worse
