What I like particulalrly about this puzzle is the number of different topics covered by the clues. From rap (DEFJAM) to opera (LEONTYNE), there are entries that span the universe of general knowledge. Also covered is: TV, movies, politics, commerce, food, geography, literature, science, and sports. There may be more.
I have no idea how I knew DEFJAM, but somehow I did. The same for ALBUNDY; I never saw the show, but the name stuck after having read about the series in which he was the leading chracter. And I don't know how I know what "six-pack abs" means. Maybe it was from some TV commercial that subliminally attached leech-like onto my brain.
At my age it's good to know that at least I've managed to retain some of my recall ability of items that exist outside of my immediate sphere. I wish I had retained my hair to the same degree.
