It's all a matter of personal taste. If you know Glenn Miller or Cab Calloway, you'll know Duke Ellington. You may not care for that kind of "big band" sound, but it doesn't mean you're ignorant to their existence.

Did this really happen? The suit would get all smokey.

We just thought he was funny.

This is minor but with the discussions of vocabulary and sayings; when we were younger they were dungarees not jeans. Then it was jeans for ladies and not men, then they became jeans and dungarees was dropped altogether.

Blue jeans was mixed in there at some point. Probably around the time Neil Diamond had a hit song called Forever In Blue Jeans

I will sometimes see an actor/actress that I recognize and say something like, "Wasn't he/she in so and so movie?"

I did that just this week when I was re-watching the Shield (the one with Vic Mackey, not the new one based on the Avengers). I was up to season 3 with the whole cuddler rapist subplot, and when he was finally revealed I was like, "Hey that's Agent Coulson!" I looked it up on wikipedia to double check, and yes it was. I never really paid attention to the actor's name being Clark Gregg before.
I am the exact opposite. I have a great memory for real names but not the characters as much. A lot of times I will know an actor/director/producer was involved with a movie without even seeing the movie just from perusing an IMDB page once or reading an article then recalling it years later. Like I can think of at least 5 movies Amber Heard has been in but I cant recall one of her character's names...and I just saw Machete Kills 2 nights ago.

Never heard of dungarees. They were always jeans.

I'll speak up for SF a bit here. I've of course heard the term, but I was never exactly sure what kind of pants dungarees were. I pictured more of cargo pant with big pockets to keep my 401ks in.
