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.

Classmates.com - Websites
Long time ago- roughly around '98-'99 when I first discovered classmates.com, it was actually a very cool and TOTALLY FREE site, like facebook where you had to register a FREE account and then you could search for and contact anyone you wanted. They had message boards for every school and even some workplaces. It was really kinda cool. As I recall, they were trying to make money by the model of selling ad space on their web pages (which I had no problem with). Then BOOM one day I logged on and couldn't get onto the message boards to check on a conversation I had going with someone I went to high school with and hadn't seen in ages. Not only that, I couldn't go to a friends listing to send then a private message. Every attempt I got a message that told me that NOW I had to get a "Gold Membership" to access these features. I sent a complaint email to someone at classmates and the response was just pretty much a 'This is the way it's all going so suck it up and shell it out if you wanna play.' Just read the wikipedia entry on classmates.com. Looks as if their business model is starting to unravel on them a bit as facebook is taking over everything. -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on April 15, 2011, 11:34 am

Friends - TV Shows
Followed the 90s era tradition of "young 20 somethings unattached living in unaffordable homes in big cities seemingly with no job."

Elton John - Music Groups
This one is easy: January 1978, when he began recording the songs that would become his 12th album A Single Man. It was a terrible album, and it signalled a permanent divorce from the style that had made him famous. I'm told he's made a few good albums since then, and he's certainly acquired a whole new fan base, but I have heard no individual song of his since '78 that made any impression on me (aside from making me want to gag). The guy's personal life and activism never bothered me, though; he seems to have an honorable soul, which is all I should care about. And I respect his willingness to buck his fellow leftwing artists by playing in Israel last year. (Hell, I don't even care that he performed at Rush Limbaugh's wedding; the million bucks he received for it went to a good cause.) -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on April 15, 2011, 3:24 am

I am so sick of this drivel about mediocre celebreties or the latest train wreck. In other words Jenny McCarthy or Lindsay Lohan. Jenny has no talent just a nice body and since you can see her in back issues of Playboy or on the web why bother. If can stomach Jenny's life story or Bo Derek's and actually keep a straight face while someone points out the "talent" (stop - my sides are splitting) or the "look" that these celevreties have you're a better person than I. Then we can always rerun the "Different Strokes" story or how about Valerie Bertinelli comeback special. Most of these celebreties are overrated and overexposed to the point of nausea. This is like a second rate version of the Biography Channel or something. I always change the channel when this comes on. Why is it that every True Hollywood Story sounds like the one before it.

The three albums beginning with Kid A were a challenge for me, deviating so heavily as they did from the band's previous sound.

Alamo Ministries - Websites
On October 22, 2008, Alamo's former followers testified in court during a preliminary hearing that Alamo had practiced polygamy and had taken an eight-year-old girl as a wife.[28][29] On December 2, a judge in Arkansas unsealed a federal indictment that included eight new charges against Alamo. The 74-year-old Alamo, who remained jailed while awaiting trial, originally faced two charges of taking minor girls across state lines for sex. The eight new counts were similar and involved four new alleged victims.[30] His trial began on July 13, 2009, and on July 24, 2009, Alamo was found guilty on all ten federal counts.[31][32] On July 28, 2009, shortly after his conviction, Tony Alamo again made headlines by calling himself "just another one of the prophets that went to jail for the Gospel".[33] He was sentenced to 175 years in prison on November 13, 2009.[34] On January 13, 2010, each of five women who testified to sexual abuse by Alamo were awarded US$500,000 in restitution, for a total judgment of US$2.5 million.[citation needed] With the Federal Bureau of Prisons ID number 00305-112, he is currently incarcerated at the Federal Correctional Institution (FCI) in Terre Haute, Indiana. -- Submitted By: (lrbloom) on April 15, 2011, 1:20 am

I am discovering the hard way what a lame site Classmates is. Even after signing up for a short subscription - they were offering a $7.50 rate for three months, which seemed reasonable - I found that there was very little I could either access or leave for others to read. They apparently discourage members from exchanging email addresses and phone numbers and whatnot, preferring communications be through them. If that isn't the stupidest setup I've ever encountered, I don't know what is. And much of the format is so saccharinic I'm worried about my blood-sugar level when I'm there. Plus I can't stand all that Memory Lane crap they've attached to the site; why do they automatically assume that just because a person's high school career took place in a particular decade that the person is eager to revisit that decade? -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on April 15, 2011, 1:11 am

Curb Your Enthusiasm - TV Shows
It's still a funny show well worth watching. That being said, I think after Season Four is when it boned (or jumped or whatever). A "special hour long show" is a good sign right there and the fifth and sixth seasons were uneven at best, especially when Cheryl left in season six. With Season Seven it seemed to get some of its groove back with the Seinfeld reunion and I hope Season EIght has him reconciling with Cheryl. She's necessary to the show by acting as Larry's seldom heeded concience/voice of reason. -- Submitted By: (MartyRotten) on April 14, 2011, 10:42 pm

Star Trek: Deep Space 9 - TV Shows
I was disappointed in the ending - Sisko's non-death death and all - but this series never came close to boning.

Star Trek - TV Shows
Some third-season episodes weren't so bad. "All Our Yesterdays" was fairly well-written, and "The Tholian Web" was quite good. "Day of the Dove" was a rip-snortin' Klingon-heavy episode, of which there were never enough. And who can resist "Turnabout Intruder" (the very last episode of the series), in which Shatner got to portray a woman in a man's body?

2001: A Space Odyssey - Movie Series
In fairness, quite a few audiences back in 1968-69 weren't sure what to make of it either. I saw it not long after it first came out, in my little redneck town's sole theater. The "Dawn of Man" scene at the beginning drew alot of laughs from the uncomprehending yokels surrounding me - "Looky at them dang ole monkey men a-jumpin around, har har har!" - and quite a few of them walked out before the movie ended. And let's face it; that last "Starchild" scene couldn't help but be a head-scratcher if one hadn't read the book beforehand. Still, the comments on this thread about the 21st-century American attention span are right on the money. I might also add that certain realistic details of 2001, such as the lack of sound in space, were jettisoned in the making of 2010, probably as a dumbing-down sop to audiences conditioned by Star Trek and Star Wars and Battlestar Galactica to expect explosions in space to be really noisy. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on April 13, 2011, 3:09 am

A stand-alone documentary would have been sufficient. But no; we have to have this soap opera, with its contrived conflicts and a frankly irresponsible competition that might end up getting someone killed. (I live near where the Rygaard crew is based; in real life those guys aren't at each other's throats like they are portrayed on the show as being. The show's producers basically tell them to ham it up, so that's what they do.) And that fool who salvages timber from rivers is little more than a cartoon character.

Sopranos, The - TV Shows
I will say that much of the sixth season seemed hastily slapped together, as if the writers had only a few days to write a whole season's worth of material. (Chris M's death was not only deeply anticlimactic but had the feel of a last-minute decision.) And I'd be lying if I said I liked the ending at the time it aired. (It was only years later that I came to appreciate what Chase was trying to do there. Could he have done it in a more decisive manner? Sure. But I've never written for television so what do I know?) All in all, though, the journey meant more to me than the journey's completion. (By the way, as much as I liked The Shield, I don't place any more weight on the opinions of that show's producers, vis-a-vis up-in-the-air endings, than I do on anyone else's. If anything, those guys played it a little too safe with their own finale.) -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on April 12, 2011, 8:06 pm

OF COURSE Maude was a hypocrite! (For the record, so was Mike Stivic, aka Meathead.) That was one of the points Norman Lear & Co sought to make in their shows. Just because they were all liberals didn't mean they couldn't poke fun at the contradictions and double standards (and insecurities!) of many members of their own political tribe.

I'm the one guy on earth that hasn't seen this show, but here's my opinion on the finale anyways. They hyped that finale like CRAZY. Everyone was talking about it. Then when it aired, a lot of people were seriously wondering if their cable went out during the ending. I think if your finale looks like a technical glitch, you've done something wrong. They really shouldn't have hyped the episode up like they did if they were going to do a non-ending. I remember Ray Romano went out of his way to warn people that the Everybody Loves Raymond finale was going to be a pretty typical episode. And that seemed to work because I don't recall any complaints about it. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on April 12, 2011, 4:00 pm

Sopranos, The - TV Shows
I think the bottom line is this- Seasons 1 & 2 of Sopranos was some of the best television of all time. 3,4, and 5 gave us some good story arcs and great episodes, season 6 pts 1/2 meandered into preachy liberal hogwash from characters that we hated with some gangster stuff in the background. The ending was appropriate for how far the show fell- there were about 100 differnt ways this should have gone (LRBLOOM I agree with almost all of your changes- thanks for sharing!!) from after season 2 til the end, and they picked about the most unsatisfying way to wrap it up. Yes there are open ended story lines- but some kick ass and leave you wanting more- SEE THE SHIELD FOR HOW TO DO THIS DAVID CHASE- and some that are limp wristed excuses for 2 seasons of straight fish boning. And for anyone who still defends how this show went out- remember that the writers from THE SHIELD made fun of the writers on the Sopranos and made it a point to tell their audience they WOULDNT DO A "SOPRANOS" FOR THE FINALE!!! I just talked to a friend who is rewatching the series and he feels the same- the show just gets bad, and preachy and ends on a terrible note- we (Mrs. Chubby Rain and I) watched the series (as documented on here via comments) last year and came to the same conclusion- wasted potential leads to a series ending fish boning that was the nadir (anit-climax) of 4 mediocre seasons that were coasting off two of the greatest seasons of scripted TV of all time- 'nuff said.... -- Submitted By: (Chubby Rain) on April 11, 2011, 6:52 pm

It ended as it ended and all's well that ends well. From the moment that episode aired people started bitching. The stories pretty much resolved themselves. Either the characters died or went to prison or both. The problem with this show wasn't the ending, but the middle. Rewrite it - Big Pussy lives and Jimmy Altierei is the rat. Ralph Cifaretto gets killed the first he beats up a girl. Employee of The Month - Dr Melfi (and/or her ex)consult Tony about attacker, which makes Tony and Dr Melfi partners in crime. AJ never has "therapy" because his dad is a gangster and canbu yhim anything he wants anyway. Tony and Carmela and the never seperate. Carmela never complains about Tony's other women after all it's a small price to pay to live in the lap of luxury. The soccer coach dies under mysterious circumstances in jail. Newspaper people cover it up. Vito stays straight and faithful to hsi wife until the bitter end. Uncle JR retains his senses and neve shoots anyone.

Her awareness of the fact that she was dealt a really shitty hand by the Fates has clogged up her plumbing, and I doubt she'll ever find an adequate laxative to flush it all out. (Sorry for whatever mental image this comment may give you....) -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on April 10, 2011, 11:49 pm

Ann Coulter - Celebrities
It's one thing to defend your ideology, and assail the opposing ideology, with sharp-tongued passion. It's something else again to revel in rhetorical eye-gouging, character evisceration, and the politics of personal dismemberment. Ann Coulter clearly enjoys the toxic, slash-and-burn wasteland that is the modern American political landscape. The more polarized we all are, the more bloodthirsty the language spewed by the hardcore partisan freakazoids on both sides, the more aroused this woman seems to become. I have a feeling she may have been Elizabeth Bathory in a past life. (Hopefully she will be an insect in the next.) -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on April 10, 2011, 11:36 pm

2001: A Space Odyssey - Movie Series
There's an online reviewer that has pretty much made a name for himself for quite vocally panning this movie. Mostly the video is just him showing clips from the film and saying, "This is boring!" (He also says 2010 is the superior film.) Now it seems like 2001-bashing is the "hip" thing to do. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on April 10, 2011, 8:17 pm

Sopranos, The - TV Shows
I agree that the unconventional ending wasn't an issue. Life went on and most the associates of the family were dead so this was just a way of saying that life went on and that was it. I think it would've been condescending to suggest that all the loose ends shouldbe tied up nice and neatly or something. Is was fun while it lasted and we'll just leave well enouch alone. -- Submitted By: (lrbloom) on April 10, 2011, 10:17 am

New York Yankees - Random Topics
The only time I disliked the Yankees was when they swept my favorite team, the San Diego Padres, in the 1998 World Series. But that dislike was short-lived in the light of the fact the Padres could have won a couple of games in that particular World Series if their relief pitchers didn't throw gopher balls (pitches that were easy to hit) all the time. -- Submitted By: (BigAl) on April 10, 2011, 9:06 am

High School Musical - Movie Series
I'll admit that I thought the first one was okay (not very good, but not horrendous), but the sequels were beyond unnecessary, and I quickly got tired of the series. Luckily, the series seems to be over (at least for now). -- Submitted By: (cartooner) on April 9, 2011, 10:00 pm

My entire (direct) family comes from the New York City area, so as you can guess, they love the Yankees and hate the Red Sox. However, my brother was always a Mets fan, and I don't have much feelings either way. -- Submitted By: (cartooner) on April 9, 2011, 9:35 pm

Sarah Palin - Celebrities
I am square in the political middle, and I have no love for either the left or the right. But I do require that those who want power over me make a decent effort to read a book once in awhile. (And I'm not talking fiction books here.) Ms Palin appears to share the mindset one finds among certain corners of the conservative community which holds that reading books is overrated. While I would not argue that book knowledge is a good substitute for life experience or common sense, I do think it's a necessary companion to those traits for any person who wishes to wield great power in America. (History books in particular ought to be on the shelves and nightstands of every aspiring leader. Is that really so much to ask?) I can't possibly trust anyone who wants to rule over me but has little curiosity about the world beyond his or her limited horizon. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on April 9, 2011, 7:21 pm

Ronald Reagan - Celebrities
A good man, with a heftier intellect than he's been credited by the left with having. Setting aside ideological biases (and the myths created by them), a good case can be made for ranking Reagan relatively high among presidents. But he was no Abe Lincoln or George Washington (and he would have been the first to tell you so), nor is he any more deserving of the right's fawning idolatry than he is of the left's hatred. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on April 9, 2011, 6:57 pm

South Park - TV Shows
Most of Season 14 was as good as any previous season, though I agree that the 3-episode Coon & Friends/Mysterion arc was weak. (But they ended the season on a strong note with the brilliant Creme Fraiche.) I think South Park may prove to be bone-proof. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on April 9, 2011, 6:40 pm

BigAl, I feel your pain. The Terrance & Philip travesty nearly made me reach for my favorite pitchfork, and the memory still hurts 13 years later; to this day I hang black crepe all over my house on April 1. Plus the number of truly clever April Fool's Day gags I've been exposed to over the years are outnumbered about a hundred to one by the creations of people who really should have just spent the day in bed. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on April 9, 2011, 6:27 pm

Mad Magazine - Random Topics
Certainly the addition of ads could not help but be a huge Bone Moment, violating as it did every principle Bill Gaines stood for. I'd place the beginning of Mad's downhill slide a little earlier, though: 1987, when the brilliant Don Martin left the magazine under less than friendly circumstances (a dispute over royalties Martin felt he was owed). -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on April 9, 2011, 6:16 pm

Twilight - Movie Series
But Soggy9000, that's part of the problem. The entertainment industry panders to teen girls far too much. They're not the only people out there who watch TV and movies and listen to music, you know. The rest of us would like a bone thrown our way every now and then. Why are teen girls so special anyway that what they like has to overrule everything else? DOWN WITH TEEN GIRLS, I SAY!!!

American Chopper - TV Shows
A large percentage of the specialty bikes they build - especially the celebrity vanity models - are kind of lame. There is always far more emphasis placed on looks than on performance. And yes, the soap-opera quality of the father-son relationship got old a long time ago. American Chopper boned years ago. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on April 9, 2011, 4:34 pm

Twilight - Movie Series
The Twilight series is a good example of our tendency to overlook the target audience when passing judgment on a book or movie. The books were written for teenage girls, and the movies were made with that specific group in mind. If teenage girls enjoy the books and movies, Ms Meyer has achieved her goal. It's not important that I - a middle aged guy - like them, or that Stephen King likes them, or that a reader with high literary standards likes them. (Besides, I'm a resident of the little town in which the story is set, and I am grateful for the TONS of tourist dollars the Twilight series has brought to the town.) -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on April 9, 2011, 4:18 pm

Sopranos, The - TV Shows
The unconventional ending didn't bother me at all. Who says everything has to be wrapped up nicely with a clearly understood, satisfying ending? That's not how life works. Life is full of ambiguities and incompletions and uncertainties, and I think David Chase was wise to bring a series which he often allowed to venture a bit too far into fantasy territory back to something near cold reality by giving it an ending that challenged our (often unreasonable) sensibilities. (In other words, he treated us like adults instead of children who need to be spoon-fed. I can't help but appreciate that.) -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on April 9, 2011, 3:47 pm

Convervatism - Random Topics
Modern American conservatism is as dedicated to control of the citizenry and suppression of their liberties as modern American liberalism is. Authoritarianism and disdain for the average citizen are the twin backbones of both ideologies. They only differ in the tools they use: Conservatives seek to dominate us via their corporate allies, while liberals seek to do it via government agencies. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on April 9, 2011, 3:31 pm

Grammy Awards - Random Topics
All music awards bone, period. It's profoundly foolish to set artists up as competitors, then declare that Artist Y deserves an award and Artist Z does not. And look at the list of nominees in each category: Mostly the same artists, year after year, as if they are the only professional musicians in existence. And yes, metal is badly underrepresented. The Grammy mindset is that the highest-profile artists make the best music, and the more obscure artists make the worst (and can therefore be ignored). It's a deeply stupid mindset. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on April 9, 2011, 3:02 pm

Profanity - Random Topics
I vote for the world's dumbest song title, "My Life Would Suck Without You." Seriously, the rules regarding censorship used to be really stupid (and things haven't changed that much). A comedian who broke the rules in his stand up was partially ridiculing the utter stupidity of these rules were. Recall George Carlin's classic "Seven Words You Can NeverSay ON Television". The rules these days don't really seem much better. You can apparently only use these word in a non-sexual manner or not referring to the excretion of body fluids. I can say, "That pisses me off." But I cannot say, "I got to take a piss." As much as I understand the distinction in that I have no need to hear of either, it still annoys me that we now have tv characters who can let us know when they have to "pee". You can stop to "pee" but you can't stop to "piss". I have to wonder how people make up these standards with a straight face. By this rationale could we say that Kelly Clarkson's life would suck but she can't sing about oral sex. Does Kelly Clarkson suck in a sexual or non-sexual manner or both? -- Submitted By: (lrbloom) on April 9, 2011, 2:10 pm

Profanity - Random Topics
It used to be cool especially as a kid when you use it sometimes or back when it was taboo and can't be used in mainstream TV or anywhere for that matter. But if you said "fuck" over 10 times in one sentence, you sound like an idiot. Nowadays some profanity even the word "Bitch" can be said in regular TV. -- Submitted By: (SSM) on April 9, 2011, 10:18 am

South Park - TV Shows
I just saw a rerun of 2008 episode called "Britney's New Look" in which the idea was to parody the press and public reaction to Britney's meltdown/breakdown. While I was one of the first to admit that the recent rash of celebrity train wrecks wasn't funny in the first place, South Park's treatment of the same subject was sickening, naueating and just plain wrong. The idea is that the public sat with baited breath waiting for Britney to become the latest "Buffy" or Dana Plato. When a person does have a serious problem, we the public aren't sitting around like bloodthirsty vultures hoping they will croak. The majority of the public got tired of hearing whether Britney went outside without her shoes or about the inside vultures picking the bones. The majority kept wondering when will they put her in the hospital. I could almost appreciate what South Park was trying to say this would serve as an example of the kind of sanctimony that we can live without on this show. The idea of the press harassing a famous person - ok I'll buy that. But to have the nerve to imply that we are all so heartless as to watch someone blow their brains out and not do anything is sick. I don't even like Britney. She can't sing, has no real talent and is primarily a T&A show, but I didn't say I wanted her dead. This cartoon portrays a headless Britney carrying on as if no one even noticed her is insulting to the rest of the world. No one found it entertaining to constantly be flooded with stories about Britney's self-destruction. It's about time somebody got this kind of trash off the front pages and into the rehab centers instead of subjecting some one to cruelty of amateur comedians coast to coast with the implication that the public enjoys this. Not entertaining and not funny. South Park crossed a line by insinuating that people do enjoy watching a person destroy themselves in the public eye for cheap thrills. South Park are no better and speaking of train wrecks, they shopuld look at their own ratings. -- Submitted By: (lrbloom) on April 8, 2011, 1:04 pm

Hot wheels - Random Topics
The 1st-generation concept models - the Splittin Image and Twin Mill and Silhouette and so on - were actually pretty cool. I think Hot Wheels drifted into BTF territory when they discontinued the Spectraflame paint job and the Redline wheel design. (That was loooong ago.) And they monkeyed with the suspension design too - probably to cut costs - because at some point the cars stopped being "bouncy" when you dropped them wheels-down. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on April 8, 2011, 4:24 am

President of the United States - Random Topics
Never mind the question of being hated; I'd rather consider the more interesting question of when it was that the office itself BTF. And my answer would be the rise of the Imperial Presidency. (Some say that era began with FDR, but I think it started at least a generation earlier.) I wish America could return to a state - if only a state of mind - where the person who happens to be living in the White House never dares lose sight of the fact that he is a public servant first and a commander in chief second. (That's not an attack on any particular president; it's a criticism of the mindset of ALL of them since 1900 or so.) -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on April 8, 2011, 4:02 am
