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.

1950's - Random Topics
I kind of knew this argument would happen. The baby boomers had built up the 50's as some kind of paradise and the recent trend to tear down that image is only natural. Not having been there, I can only judge it on what I've been told. My parents and other people of that age group (including minorities) do indeed say it was a great time to be alive. Now everyone says that about their childhood era though. But my grandma also has fond memories of it. After the depression, WWII, and Korea, it must have been a welcome relief to not have turmoil. She also worked a full time office job from the war into the 1980s. My other grandmother worked as a schoolteacher during that time also. So I don't know where this "women couldn't work" nonsense comes from. So in short, I'm sure it was not perfect in any way, but probably better than these depressing times. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on November 9, 2011, 12:59 am

Perfect??? Who said anything about perfect??? No time in human history's been perfect, but I don't know how any reasonable person can deny the 50s were better than any generation in American history since. As far as racism goes, the amount of complaining about it is inversely proportional to the amount that actually exists. Funny how that works. -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on November 8, 2011, 7:44 pm

1950's - Random Topics
I think the whole illusion that life was more simple and better in the 1950s is just that, an illusion perpetrated by people who try to hark on the "good ol' family values." The 50s were great, Dads ignored their kids, Moms were expected to stay at home and do the bidding of their husbands, racism was alive and well, and people were still drinking and doing drugs, it was just much more under wraps. TV has done a wonderful job making it look like paradise, and yes, compared to today, it looks much better, but let's not fool ourselves into thinking it was perfect. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on November 8, 2011, 3:16 pm

Stephanie, I agree that the music was good but it wasn't all fun or innocent for everyone. If one was a woman needing to work outside the home or a minority, those times were rather tough. Not to say that the next decade changed everything for the better by any means [even for the above groups], but changes did need to be made. Also, how much fun could it have been to have been a soldier in Korea in the first part of the decade- and wondering if the Soviets would blow us up to Kingdom Come via nukes? A LOT of people here had those serious concerns. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on November 7, 2011, 7:51 am

Thats what I am trying to say. Dwayne, LeBron, Kobe, etc. don't have to play any games... hell, if they retired tomorrow, they would be fine, as long as they don't pull an Antoine Walker. The guys lower down would find jobs too, be it being a part of some kind of And-1 style basketball deal where they tour the country and play pick up games for fans, to some going over to Europe or China or such, regardless of the difference in play (there are some of those owners who would LOVE to say they have NBA talent on their teams to help draw fans), to, if they were smart, relying on what they learned in school, and not worrying about basketball until the lockout is resolved. I do agree though, that its the guys on the lower end of the totem pole (the 10th, 11th, 12th men, rookies who got paid the minimum, players who have trouble keeping their money, etc.) that will have trouble. I'll still hold to what I say, that the NBA is in the same position as the NHL when they had their lockout. -- Submitted By: (PYLrulz) on November 3, 2011, 6:09 pm

National Basketball Association (NBA) - Random Topics
I see some of your points PYLrulz, but at the same time I disagree. The top money making players like Kobe, Dwayne Wade, LeBron, Kevin Durant, etc. will be okay missing a few paychecks. They make a ton off of endorsements and should be okay. Guys that are going to be affected are the non-stars. Those that make near the league minimum. Those guys will be affected. I'm sure they've already felt missing that first paycheck. Also, foreign basketball rules make it so only a limited number of NBA players can make the rosters. Besides that, many of the guys hate playing overseas. It's a different style of basketball in a different culture far away from familiarity. Deron Williams, a star in the NBA, has struggled playing overseas. Plus the money is nowhere near as good as it is in the NBA. Finally, NBA players are known infamously for their horrible financial habits. They spend extravagantly, support more people than they usually are able to, and don't know the concept of saving or rainy day funds. However, the divide between the top owners and small town owners vs. the star players and the everyday players is huge and this lockout is far from over. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on November 2, 2011, 11:17 pm

Little Caesars makes Domino's look like gourmet pizza. I will admit, their commercials in the 90s were pretty creative and funny. If only they spent the money they did on marketing/advertising on the pizza you might end up with something tolerable, but instead you end up with pizza that reminds me of cafeteria pizza from my grade school days. The pizza was a little higher in quality back when they made the pizza to order instead of pre making the pizza for $5. Now, it makes no bones about being a mediocre pizza. I guess economically it's a good way to have a lot of food for not a lot of money, but there are much better choices for pizza. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on October 31, 2011, 6:38 pm

The music wound up consisting of nothing but crappy hair metal ballads and gratuitously obscene rap, with New Kids On The Block thrown in for good (bad) measure. It didn't help that my favorite team sucked from '86-'89 either, or that I was forced by the state to endure junior high and high school. I loved the 90s MUCH more.

1970's - Random Topics
The 70s up until about 1975 had great music, some good TV shows and some good movies. It seems though starting with 1975 things took a dip. Recall this was about six months after Richard Nixon's resignation, so I have no idea if these things correlate, but it seems that starting in 1975 music started getting really awful (bland folk, disco, etc.), TV shows started declining in quality, movies just weren't as good as they were earlier in the decade. Then Jimmy Carter was elected, the energy crisis hit, disco almost destroyed rock, and the women's liberation movement went into full barrage. By the time the disco demolition day happened in Chicago, rock was making a comeback with new wave developing into a huge 80s movement, good movies returned to the box office, and the women's lib movement was drowned out by America longing for the return of conservatism. TV shows continued their long drought in quality well into the 80s. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on October 20, 2011, 5:22 pm

All eras have their pros and cons: the 20s had flapper music, but gangsters such as Al Capone. The 40s had great cartoons (Tom and Jerry, etc.), but WWII. The 60s and 70s? Make of them what you will. This era also has its pros and cons. When it comes to TV, I think we're in the "dark ages" (though there are good shows out there. Don't get me wrong). This era has presented us with a tidal wave of bad cartoons, some of which are just flash animations done by people with little or no artistic talent (Problem Solverz, etc.). I'd rather watch the 80's toy commercials, and I'm not exaggerating. Not to mention reality shows taking over, classic cartoons being remade in "hip" fashion, shows which long since boned the fish still going strong, movies destined for two stars or less, and an early bargain-bin release (I'm really being negative, aren't I?). Well, on the plus side, we can go online for entertainment. I'm glad Al Gore invented the internet. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on October 20, 2011, 1:22 pm

President of the United States - Random Topics
The four-year term works, it's like a trial run. If you like their work, hire them again for another four years. They sucked? Vote for someone else. A third-party candidate could work, but they might be hated by both parties because they're "not on the same team". As well as costing THEIR candidates votes. Beware of those more concerned with pleasing their party than working to make America a better place. This goes for ANY party. Speaking of douche and turd, which one's the giant douche, and which one's the turd sandwich? -- Submitted By: (Robert) on October 20, 2011, 1:11 pm

Occupy Wall Street - Random Topics
Apparently, the protesters are making anti-Semitic remarks, and one group sang, "F*** the USA". How patriotic. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on October 20, 2011, 1:07 pm

Parallel Parking - Random Topics
From what I have seen, it is women who have the most difficulty in successfully parallel parking. It's the whole reversing thing: spatial awareness. I never have a problem unless some idiot has not properly parked and is overlapping my space. -- Submitted By: () on October 20, 2011, 8:38 am

IndyCar - Random Topics
Day One (aka, The Split). See what was said on the Indy 500 page. -- Submitted By: (PYLrulz) on October 20, 2011, 5:09 am

Ticketmaster - Random Topics
And now the Bears solely use Ticketmaster, even at the Box Office. Thankfully since my last post and now, I had bought ticket plans for the Bears. -- Submitted By: (PYLrulz) on October 20, 2011, 3:30 am

Indianapolis 500 - Random Topics
The Split. IRL/Indy Car splits because they think people will follow unknown American drivers, rather than follow semi-known foreign drivers?!? Under that logic, Alex Ovechkin (Russia) shouldn't be nowhere near popular in Washington for Hockey, Half these Dominican players shouldn't be stars in Baseball, and guys like Dirk Nowitzki (Germany), Paul Gasol (Spain), Yao Ming (China), or Patrick Ewing (Jamaica) shouldn't of been stars in Basketball. Way to take a piss on the Indy 500 legacy. -- Submitted By: (PYLrulz) on October 20, 2011, 3:24 am

1980s - Random Topics
I think a lot of people look back at the 80s with nostalgia for the same reason a lot of people look at the 90s with nostalgia. That reason being that I think a large portion of the people using this site were kids in the 80s or the 90s. I was a kid of the 80s. I remember the whole 'say no to drugs!' movement, I remember the years where the media taught kids to fear strangers and to think that everyone in the world wanted to abduct us. I don't remember hearing much about cocaine, crack or AIDS. I remember first hearing about AIDS in the early 90s or so. As for the cartoons existing solely to advertise the toys, even though I seem to remember hearing that with at least some, they created the toys *then* made the cartoon to advertise them. However, I still have trouble feeling that way about the cartoons. I think the commercials for the actual toys are far worse even though I know it's more or less 'you love the show, now here's the toys!' Although as one might say, the best form of advertising is an advertisement that doesn't feel like one. To use a modern example of an 80s cartoon, just look at all the fanart there is of MLP. It's all free advertising for the franchise once you get down to it. However, it doesn't feel like advertising. As for the live action shows, don't forget ALF. A lot of people loved that show and I think it's still fun to watch. I don't remember any of the financial stuff. I do remember (to an extent) the cold war and the worries that came alone with it. Overall though, I think a lot of people call the 80s the good old days is for the same reason people refer to any decade with that term. Perhaps it's not so much the decade which people refer that was a time of innocence or at least a good time as much as it was a time of innocence and/or a good time for the person reminiscing about that decade. -- Submitted By: (ExplodingConsole) on October 17, 2011, 1:08 am

1980s - Random Topics
I'm a big fan of 80s music (outside of hair metal) and 80s films (Back to the Future, Ghostbusters, Indiana Jones, etc.) However, I find 80s TV to be too cheesy and silly. The cartoons were nothing more than advertising vehicles for toy and candy companies. The sitcoms... the less said the better. None of them have aged well at all. Also, there was the cocaine epidemic that was spreading like wildfire, the rise of AIDS, the failing war on drugs started, the paranoia of the cold war and nuclear weapons, corruption in Wall Street with insider trading fraud that brought the market down (wow, some things don't change, do they?), and other things. So for people that think the 80s were the good old days... there were just as many issues then as there are now. Nostalgia helps us remember the good and forget the bad. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on October 16, 2011, 6:36 pm

Occupy Wall Street - Random Topics
Here's an interesting article explaining the problem with these protests. http://www.cracked.com/blog/3-types-wall-street-protesters-hurting-their-own-cause/ I know cracked is a comedy website but it's still a good article. -- Submitted By: (ExplodingConsole) on October 16, 2011, 12:58 pm

1970's - Random Topics
The early 70's seemed to have a lot going for it but somewhere in the middle things began to happen. Disco, bands breaking up and tv shows being canceled and spunoff...The late 70's were like death. -- Submitted By: () on October 16, 2011, 2:50 am
