the thing that annoys me about it is that it's just lazy cut-and-paste writing on the part of the ad agency. Then again, I'm a music nerd who reads waaaay too much into the media I consume.

Soon Siri will be able to just stream a hologram of Saint Coltrane right into the middle of your cocktail party!

I never thought of it as a question of obscurity. If anything, Coltrane (and jazz in general) is always the safe go-to reference in media/advertising to represent black professionals because to a white audience, Coltrane is somehow more "dignified" than a hip-hop reference, and everybody's happy. It is annoying, but Smelodies' point is just as valid - you can't win either way. It would just as dumb if he said he said "Play some Dream Theater."

What if he'd said "Play some Marsalis"?

EEEEWWWWW.

Again, a similarly positioned white actor could have said Coltrane, Madonna, The Beatles, or Beethoven, and none of those choices would have been deemed stereotypical or inappropriate. 

Which artist would have been more acceptable for the African American actor to say?

White Reign.

A buddy of mine who works for Twitter mentioned that Kevin Smith and Jason Mewes stopped by their offices today. Standard jorts and hockey muu-muu for Kevin, but a fresh bob haircut for Jason -

"Play me some muthafuckin' Luther Vandross."
Oh, good heavens. I didn’t realize. I send my condolences out to the rest of the O’Connor family.

I don't know if this has been mentioned before but, I can't stand the "funny" Halloween costumes at Halloween stores. I went to a Halloween store last night and it seems like this year the funny costumes are all boner related.

I really don't appreciate your sarcastic, anti-comedy tone, Bro!

You should experience my slutty sewage-pipe maintenance crew costume. The authentic smell and toe-cleavage.

I forgot about the slutty costumes.  There were a few strange ones like slutty Freddy Kruger, slutty Leatherface and slutty highway patrol zombie.

I was thinking about a slutty Jason from Alabama, but how do you make that any sexier?
