People are roasting each other at parties, at work events, around the fire. It's so fun. People are busting each other's chops, and it's a sign of affection, truly.

There's this little box that African-American actors have to work in, in the first place, and I was able to rise above that box.

Samuel Taylor Coleridge
Basically, the Internet is just the way now. It's the end-all, be-all of self-promotion. It's not like you got to burn CDs and pass them out or sell them.
