Bone The Fish - Most Recent Comments!

Who said you can't coin your own term? What is "Boning the Fish"? It's a moment. A defining moment when you know that your favorite TV Show, Celebrity, Movie Series or Music Group has reached its peak. That instant you know from now on...it's all downhill. Some call it a climax of sorts. We call it "Boning the fish". From that moment on things will simply never be the same.

All in the Family - TV Shows
When Archie mellowed, the show lost its zip. Bringing in Danielle Brisebois was a very unusual attempt to add the cuteness factor into the show. Was their anyone in the country that said "What All in the Family needs is an adorable child?" -- Submitted By: (jonkaplanseaver) on May 8, 2011, 5:22 pm

Lost - TV Shows
I feel Lost is the greatest show ever made and the reason is because it did "Bone the Fish". When the show looked like it could dry up, the creators of the show, Lindelof and Cuse, surprised us with Jack's Flash Forward ("We have to go back Kate"). This allowed the show to finish the way it started and went on to entertainment greatness. -- Submitted By: (jonkaplanseaver) on May 8, 2011, 4:59 pm

London,England - Random Topics
Today is VE Day! I mention that because on the original day in 1945, the streets of London were unabashedly bursting with pride, joy and relief that their nation had defeated the NAZIs and the war in Europe was OVER! They'd seen their city become a battered, scarred and grim battlefield and had suffered many losses and deprivations via the Blitz and war itself but on THIS day, they were all able to CELEBRATE peace and victory! If I ever had the chance to travel back to any one time and place in the past, THIS would be it! Yeah, they were celebrating VE Day elsewhere,too, but here in the States we hadn't suffered the way the British had- and who could uninhibitedly celebrate ANYthing in Stalinist Moscow or Leningrad[ now again rightfully called St. Petersburg]? And, yet, the times I've been to London seeing all the tourist sights, I've wondered how many other tourists[and,for that matter, subjects] have any idea how CLOSE London had come to being obliterated and why VE Day was so vital? -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on May 8, 2011, 4:07 pm

Star Trek - TV Shows
OK, I'm not going to say the show irrevokably boned here but did anyone else think it was just a bit much when Jim discovered his brother and sister-in-law had been fatally attacked in their colony by the giant flying brain cells and his nephew was beamed aboard unconscious- yet Jim barely acknowledged his brother's passing or his nephew's grave condition while endlessly operatically wailing over whether SPOCK would survive said attack? I mean, I know Spock was Jim's best friend and all and the audience had never heard a peep about his brother and bro's family before this but what kind of priorities does one have to get totally emotional over a best friend while ignoring one's own family? Yeah, Spock survived +Kirk was all happy(and some Trek book stated the kid recovered and was raised by his Earth-bound grandma) but, as far as the show was concerned, the nephew might as well STILL be unconscious in an unseen part of the sickbay unvisited and ignored by his uncle! If Kirk didn't care two bits about this particular nuclear family, what was the point of making them related to him instead of maybe friends of friends? -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on May 8, 2011, 3:57 pm

Rifleman, The - TV Shows
That opening of the 11 rifle shots was quite impressive- and showed that Mr. Connors put his physical training and reflex timing from his baseball career to excellent use! That episode was a good one, soggy. I always liked the one in which Lucas was oddly aloof than to this new woman in town who played a song on a guitar- while the kid adored her and then when the kid was trapped in a well, he dreamed of his late mother in a veil playing that song and when she unveiled herself it was the EXACT same actress playing the new woman in town! I often thought it interesting how this was one of the more deep Westerns in that there was so MUCH that had happened with Lucas and his son prior to the timeframe that was too painful for them to discuss yet seemed to have had a profound effect on how they currently lived their lives. Also, while Lucas may have seemed outwardly cold to his motherless son, there was no doubt he adored the boy more than literally his own life. Yeah, I was intrigued by the contrast between this and "Bonanza" in which every single tragedy that had happened re the Cartwrights was endlessly rehashed ,wore their hearts on their sleeves and were totally mushy with each other. Truth be told, I think it was a far more realistic approach as to how so many folks in the 19th century lived their lives! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on May 8, 2011, 3:45 pm

Soggy, I agree that that 'lost its innocence' would be a rather foolish claim re the 1960's. If ANY decade could be used re that claim, it would be the EIGHTEEN-60's.

As I recall, Freddy doesn't say much in the first film. Maybe that's one reason it was the only one I liked; the more lines the guy had - and especially the more smartass lines - the less mysterious he became.

Twilight - Movie Series
Travoltron, I apologize for not replying to you sooner. You would find yourself very welcome here. Most Forks residents have taken the invasion in stride, and more than a few have made some decent bucks from it. There are a couple of coldblooded carpetbagger businesses in town - basically outsiders settling here just long enough to capitalize on the Twilight craze - which don't have too many friends among the locals and won't be missed when they pack up after the craze dies down. And some of our high-schoolers pretend - not entirely convincingly - to be oh so jaded about it all. But most of us are pretty okay with the fans, who tend to behave themselves. By the way, the house which portrays the Official Residence of the Cullen Family belonged to my family doctor back in the 1960s and '70s; he was a mean-tempered old bastard, much more intimidating to my childhood self than any vampire could have been. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on May 7, 2011, 6:04 pm

Knighthood - Random Topics
True enough, and more's the pity. But I practice what I preach. It happens that I've gotten to meet an unusual number of actors, pro athletes, musicians, politicians, etc - due to my choice of professions rather than any desire to meet famous people - and I have treated damn near all of them no differently than I'd treat Joe Average. (A few writers and historians I may have fawned over - ditto a couple of very high-ranking military men - but nobody else.) In fact, I had to sass a few of them here and there. By the way, Dol old buddy, I once had the pleasure of calling Ted Kennedy an idiot to his face. (It was 1980, he made a whistle-stop at my college during his presidential run, and after a lame-O speech - I'm not sure he even knew what city he was in - he waded into the adoring audience. I got to the front of the crowd and told him he was an idiot, and everyone predictably gave me a hard time, though Kennedy himself laughed it off. My only regret was that I hadn't insulted him in a wittier, more imaginative manner, but that's life.) -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on May 7, 2011, 5:04 pm

The opening scene was so cool; Connors handled that Winchester like it was an extension of his arm. It's not easy to rapid-fire one of those things, and tougher yet to twirl-cock it; there weren't too many actors besides Connors and John Wayne who could do it convincingly. The episode that stands out most sharply in my mind involved Lucas spending the entire half hour trying to figure out how to get out of a sleeping bag without being bitten by the rattlesnake that had crawled inside during the night. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on May 7, 2011, 4:14 pm

Tour of Duty - TV Shows
Evan227's critique is right on the money. When the network expanded the scope from the small-horizon story of a more or less typical infantry platoon to a romance-heavy soap opera, and then to the rarefied world of SpecOps (as if rifle platoons routinely morph into SF outfits), the show became just another clueless Hollywood take on military life. I'm surprised the subsequent career of Terence Knox, who was so consistently excellent as Sgt Anderson, never really took off. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on May 7, 2011, 3:56 pm

Let me start by saying that I've always been proud to be a US American and descended from folks living here for several centuries. Hence, when some other US American citizens do shameful things, I'm ashamed that THEY are citizens NOT that I myself am a citizen. OK, all that said, being a history and genealogy buff, I have to admit that a bit intrigued by the idea of Old World knighthood and the concept of becoming worthy to join an order to do good for one's community. Yeah, I know that these ideals have not often been met re applicants or orders but I find it interesting concept. It's not that I think any person in this world should be worshipped [especially celebs,etc.]. It's more an ideal of wanting to change oneself for the better to unite with others who've done so to improve a community at large. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on May 7, 2011, 3:20 pm

This woman puts the icing on the cake when it comes to whoring herself and her kids out. Caught a rencent episode of "Kate Plus 8" because I'd heard about her bitchiness to the bungee jumping instructor and wanted to see it to make fun of her! I was further sickened by her visit to the Australian Zoo. Her attempts at coming across as "caring, sensitive and mushy" when she was holding the baby Koala made my skin crawl. *gag*. And she's acting like she and Teri Iwin are new BFFs and bragging how her kids "got along so well" with Bindy and Robert Irwin. Well, you dumb bitch! Of course, they are going to be gracious to you and your TV crew! They run the zoo! Yet, when she goes to Alaska and goes camping with Sarah Palin and her family, who were just as kind and gracious, she's a rude, ungrateful, c**t; all because "it's too cold out here!"

Very strange episode last night. I figured they'd get rid of DeAngelo in a much darker manner. He'd have a nervous breakdown, or he'd become so insufferable that Jim and Dwight would be forced to set him up to be fired, or maybe he'd do something illegal and end up in jail. In other words, something with a dark-edged finality to it. Instead they have him injure himself in a basketball exhibition. Sort of a lighthearted end to a mini-arc I was sure would play out more dramatically. I won't say this ending was a cop-out, in the sense that the last-second Michael-and-Pam-at-the-airport scene last week was, but it did seem to indicate a desire on the part of the producers to play it safe - and that's never a good sign.

For my money, he is the biggest What If? story in music history. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on May 6, 2011, 12:36 pm

Emerson, Lake & Palmer - Music Groups
That IS cool, Dol. If I thought my family would honor my wishes, I'd consider making the same request. (But I have a good family; they'll probably pick "Eight Miles High", which is fine with me.) -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on May 6, 2011, 12:30 pm

Black Sabbath - Music Groups
Who voted "Day 1", dammit? Who would dare vote "Day 1"? Not even Pat Boone would vote "Day 1"! Not even Perry Frigging Como would vote "Day 1"! Not even Sinatra would vo - well, okay, so Sinatra might. Personally, I never jumped on the Dio bandwagon; even Heaven and Hell didn't do much for me. (I know it's a blasphemous thing to admit, but there it is.) But Ozzy's last two albums sucked ass too. Basically Sabotage was the last album that impressed me, so I guess that means I have to give the Bone Date as about 1976. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on May 6, 2011, 12:25 pm

Welcome Back Kotter - TV Shows
I never understood the appeal of this program. The actors were all over-the-top hams, the characters they played were annoying, and I was convinced the producers and writers had never been to high school themselves. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on May 6, 2011, 12:05 pm

Kids in the Hall, The - TV Shows
I think each of them kissed all four of the others at one time or another. But the show never boned. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on May 6, 2011, 12:01 pm

Osama bin Laden - Celebrities
The thing is that, yes Bin Laden was a human being. Maybe it is wrong to celebrate the death of another human being regardless of who they are or what they've done in life. However (and I think this is the kicker), as others have said, Bin Laden was responsible for thousands of deaths world wide, not to mention the level of destruction. Think of all of the people that have lost family and/or friends because of this man. Take a look at the NY Skyline. It hasn't been the same since 9/11 and never will be the same. And that's just from his most infamous attack. This man hid protected while people loyal to him died for his cause. I don't recall OBL ever showing any regret or remorse for his actions. He destroyed lived all around the world and walked free to live his all while people suffered (and STILL suffer) because of his actions. From what I gather, the Soldiers that took OBL down in that Operation did so in a way that killed him quickly. They even treated his body with dignity and decency when they buried him at sea. The level of restraint it must have taken to do that is commendable to say the least. Despite all of this, people are objecting to others showing joy that OBL is dead? What do these people want? How do they expect people to react to news that a man that caused so much pain, destruction and loss of life, got away with it until now and to the best of my knowledge, showed no remorse? But when people have been waiting the better part of a decade (some even perhaps far longer) for the capture/death of a man celebrate when it finally happens? Perhaps people need to think about the wrongs that man is responsible for before thinking about whether or not it's wrong to celebrate his death. -- Submitted By: (ExplodingConsole) on May 6, 2011, 11:57 am

Sesame Street - TV Shows
Elmo replaced Grover? Why, that's practically a crime against humanity! Grover was one of the coolest dudes on ANY TV show in the '70s and '80s. Why on earth would they get rid of him? What's this world coming to? -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on May 6, 2011, 7:42 am

Schwarzenegger was an actor? Really?? Dang - I somehow managed to miss that detail of his life. I knew he made several movies before changing careers, but I sure didn't know he was ever an actor. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on May 6, 2011, 5:45 am

Sex Pistols - Music Groups
Hugely important. HUGELY. A large percentage of the contents of both my iPods, and my CD collection, and what little post-1980 vinyl I own, would not exist if it weren't for these guys. And John Lydon has earned the right to be the Most Abrasively Uncompromising Man on Planet Earth. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on May 6, 2011, 5:34 am

Vegetarianism - Random Topics
I've heard of vegetarians who have attempted to train their dogs and cats to be vegetarians too. (It almost sounds like an urban myth, but I have no problem believing it; fanatics tend not to have a firm grasp on reality.) -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on May 6, 2011, 5:19 am

Wow, you're really personalizing this. I have a feeling there is something regarding the whole "sibling death" thing that hits you a little too close to home. If so, it's better that I stop yanking your chain and leave you to your opinion. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on May 6, 2011, 3:49 am

Osama bin Laden - Celebrities
The man was responsible for the deaths of thousands around the world. Yeah, I'm celebrating his death. I got into a shitload of fights with pseudo pacifists spreading those fake MLK quotes on Facebook. Maybe they were too young to remember 9/11. i remember that day vividly. -- Submitted By: (Googalslosh) on May 6, 2011, 3:45 am

OJ Simpson - Celebrities
I don't agree that O.J. boned when he killed his wife in 1994. He boned when he beat her up in 1989, and possibly earlier in the marriage. The murder was more a matter of his building a cage from all the fish bones he had already accumulated. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on May 6, 2011, 3:37 am

Law - Random Topics
Dol, I agree that the system is fouled up. But I don't believe America was "taken over" by anyone, so I recognize no such correlation as you describe. The fact is that justice has been uneveny applied, and laws inconsistently enforced, since our country's earliest years. What we see today is hardly a recent phenomenon. A good number of the social movements you probably resent were a sort of backlash against an environment in which laws were often not enforced as they should have been. I should add here that it strikes me as strange that we are saying "Law" itself boned the fish. That's the sort of viewpoint one would expect from anarchists and criminals who resent the existence of laws in the first place. If we are going to debate whether the American justice system, or the American legal code, has gone past its prime, the topic on this page should be named The American Justice System or The American Legal Code instead of the vaguely-defined word "Law". -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on May 6, 2011, 3:09 am

Moderators (Internet Forum) - Random Topics
I've administered a few boards/groups over the years. It's a thankless job, to put it mildly, and it taught me the limits of my own patience. No matter how even-handed you try to be, you're going to be called biased, or overly strict, or too arbitrary, or not engaged enough. (And often you're called all these things at the same time.) Herding cats has nothing on moderating a board full of feisty personalities. It requires an extra-thick skin, the patience of Job, the diplomatic touch of Talleyrand, and alot more time and emotional energy than most folks might be willing to expend. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on May 6, 2011, 2:40 am

History (History Channel) - Random Topics
They need to have a hardcore history network for viewers with decent-sized IQs, featuring reasonably deep programs about actual history - preferably heavy on pre-20th-century history - and move all that fluff programming to a History Channel Lite for those who require things to be dumbed down for them. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on May 6, 2011, 2:15 am

Temp Agencies - Random Topics
My first few months after moving to Seattle saw me in the temp world. It was one of the most depressing, humiliating periods in my life; I always felt utterly valueless at the end of the day. To borrow a bit of Vietnam-era Army lingo, I felt - and was generally treated - like the FNG. So in later years, when I became a manager and needed the services of a temp agency, I would treat my temps EXTREMELY well, and I made sure my staff did too. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on May 6, 2011, 2:04 am

Weakest Link, The - TV Shows
I could never get past that dreadful host. Whatever merits the show had were lost on me, as I found her persona too distracting. From what I've heard, her behavior brought the show more viewers than the game's basic premise; I don't know if that's true but it wouldn't surprise me. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on May 6, 2011, 1:49 am

American South, The - Random Topics
As usual, Kingbk is the voice of reason amid the cacophony of "My dogma is better than your dogma, nenny nenny nyehhh!" Why are these silly spitfests so often allowed to overwhelm (and sidetrack us from) a topic whose intrinsic interest hardly needs the sorts of sociopolitical embellishments you people load it down with? How about this: The South is a picturesque place filled with interesting people, good music and great food. There is no single monolithic Southern Culture, and Southerners have as great a diversity of viewpoints as any other segment of society. Most of the sneering cliches and stereotypes snooty Easterners attach to the region are either long out of date or never reflected reality in the first damn place. I have met very few Southerns I didn't like, and I've known more than a few for whom I'd take a bullet. The climate I can do without, and there are too many snakes down there for my taste. But overall I love the South, and America would hardly have been America without it. (For the record, I'm a Northwesterner, born and bred.) -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on May 6, 2011, 1:33 am

Circus of the Stars - TV Shows
The concept of the show was weird to me even as a little kid and as an adult I would sometimes wonder if I dreamed the whole thing. I had thought this show was canceled in the mid-80s, but Wiki says this show ran until 1994. I disagree with the previous comment about this show never working today. It seems inline with all the "celebrity" reality shows currently polluting the airwaves. NBC did try a ripoff flop called "Celebrity Circus" in 2008 with D-list celebs. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on May 6, 2011, 1:13 am
