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.

Cartooner, at least the Braves and Red Sox come close. I've been a long time Astros fan and I'll tell you the last few seasons they've made it real tough to be a fan. Having the worst record in all of baseball is not something to take pride in. Plus, continuously changing the roster, I have no clue, anymore, who is on the team. We have the Phillies old GM, Ed Wade. How ironic is it that he left there and the Phills started playing better baseball.

Starbucks Coffee - Random Topics
The coffee is headache-inducing as well as overly spendy, and I'm saying that as a Seattle-area resident (and therefore someone who could be considered to be under the collective geographical/cultural onus to like the place). I think it has to do with how they grind and roast the beans - the coffee packs a wallop unless it's "cut" with something else. However, they do make good lattes and hot chocolate. My girlfriend is a non-coffee drinker, so on those occasions when we get Starbucks gift cards (it happens sometimes at work), we use them to get warm-up drinks before going to hockey games: a hot chocolate for her, and that or a latte for me. Since we're using gift cards, the price isn't such a big concern, and since I avoid the coffee itself, I can enjoy the game without a splitting headache. -- Submitted By: (Mythigator) on September 24, 2011, 7:44 am

Cartoon Network - Random Topics
King, while I'll admit it's great to see the classic Looney Tunes, I have a few problems with it as well. For starters Porky has been cut out of the closing title screen. That was signature Looney Tunes/Merrie Melodies. Another being, it's followed by the newer crappier looney tunes, in which they apparently all live in the same house. Kind of reminds me of a situation comedy or worse a fictional character reality show, but not as good as Drawn Together was. The characters are horribly drawn and nowhere near what the character is supposed to sound like. Sorry I got off topic a bit. I was surprised to see the episode "Falling Hare"(Bugs vs gremlin) where Bugs is bested throughout the show. But I can't help but think they'll never show OLD Daffy cartoons, when he was at his best and imo better than Bugs in every conceivable way and not Bug's bottom barrel bitch. I could go on about this but I'll stop now. -- Submitted By: (Jp) on September 2, 2011, 10:12 pm

Image Comics - Random Topics
Don't get me wrong, I'm not condemning all indie comics. My favorite comic book ever, Usagi Yojimbo, is independent and all done pretty much entirely by one guy since the mid 1980s. But the Image guys (with the Savage Dragon guy being the obvious exception) are all lazy hacks with no artistic integrity that couldn't cut it on their own. I loved that article by the way and would love to see an update to it. I've heard they're not the No. 3 comic publisher anymore. I think when it comes to the superhero books, the corporate-owned format works best. All those classic superhero crossovers and superhero teams like the Justice League and The Avengers could never have happened under the creator-owned rules. You'd have to get permission from each character's creator and pay them something each time a character appears. You wouldn't be able to afford to use the whole team! -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on September 1, 2011, 5:54 pm

Cartoon Network - Random Topics
Sorry for the upcoming long post. I feel that Cartoon Network's first major screw-up was in 2001 when they revived Dexter's Laboratory without the original creator (or part of the original staff). To me, though, this would be their only big screw-up until around 2005-ish, when they got rid of every classic cartoon that wasn't Tom and Jerry (such as Looney Tunes and Droopy). In 2006, they started airing some live action movies and stopped airing some of their older original cartoons. In early 2007, the CEO of Cartoon Network resigned in response to the Boston Bomb Scare. Shortly after, they got rid of the Fridays block, gave Toonami a major redesign, made Out of Jimmy's Head, and made Fried Dynamite. A year later, they got rid of Toonami altogether, and later made even more live action shows and the CN Real block (amazingly, some of this live action is still on). CN had other bonings, but these were it's biggest bonings to me. -- Submitted By: (cartooner) on September 1, 2011, 5:35 am

I was a naive high school student when Image was formed. I believed all the hype about creators' rights and that editors were holding back these great artists from telling great stories. Then these "rebels" go start their own company and make the dumbest, most unoriginal, over-commercialized crap comics in history. All they've got to show for it after all these years is... Spawn... and The Walking Dead has a TV show. These artists were only good when they had real writers and editors telling them what to do and couldn't handle it on their own.

Biggest way you can tell that the NFL is vastly more popular than the NBA: NFL lockout was talked about EVERY DAY between the time it started to the time it ended. All sports media seemed to at least touch on it while it was happening and we were consistently given updates, even when there really wasn't anything to update. The NBA lockout I've heard very little on and seem to have no updates. I highly doubt the season will start on time and almost wonder if there will be a season at all. I think it's time for David Stern to step down. It's a little harder to look like "the greatest commissioner in major league sports" as some pundits like to call him when you aren't riding the coat tails of Magic, Bird and MJ anymore. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on August 28, 2011, 3:04 am

King, you couldn't be more right about this. All these themed channels have gotten further and further from their respective programming. As for GSN, I don't understand why improvaganza is even an option on this show. It's not a game show! I hope it isn't because Drew hosts PIR, that shouldn't even matter. I don't even bother with anything Springer does. Lingo being hosted by Bill Engvall is very ridiculous. Something tells me he's not exactly a master wordsman. (Kind of like how Foxworthy probably isn't smarter than a 5th grader.) I don't dislike him, out of all the Blue Collar guys Ron White and Bill are the better. Chuck was just the man for the job on that show. Who is going to replace Alex Trebek when he's done with Jeopardy? Oh, I know! Jimmy Kimmel! No, Carrot Top!

Game Show Network (GSN) - Random Topics
Another cable channel that lost its way. I remember as recent as 2006 when this was still a good cable network. Sure, by that point Price is Right was long off the channel, but it still had mostly classic shows and some really good originals like Russian Roulette. Now this channel has Baggage, which is one of the most disgusting programs I've ever seen. Jerry Springer and his "go for shock value" schtick is so 1997. If that sounds bad, you also have Wendy Williams and her trash bag dating show, Drew Carey and a watered down version of Whose Line called Improv-A-Ganza, overplayed reruns of Deal or No Deal, Lingo sans Chuck Woolrey, now hosted by redneck Bill Engvall and it plays up his perverted jokes, very few classics still on, and much more. This channel is a mess. I know the budget has been cut drastically and you can tell. The production values of the shows are about one level above public access and it's mostly just rerunning four programs in one day instead of a variety of programs. The last time I really liked the channel was when I wrote my last review of it, which was May 2010. It wasn't at its best, but it was still somewhat good. Now? I only can somewhat tolerate Lingo. I hold out hope it will bone back like it has before, but I'm not holding my breath. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on August 27, 2011, 2:02 am

Feminism - Random Topics
One annoying feminism thing is how women complain about making less money on average. For a long time I wondered why this was. Why would employers pay women that are doing the same job and have the same qualifications less money? How could they legally get away with it? Only recently, I read an article (written by a woman btw) that called people on this. It mentioned how career choices are much more for a factor in this then unequal pay (which in my opinion, any degree of is not acceptable). I remember the same article also decrying a woman that balked at male students in need of assistance, the woman saying that 'they'll just make more anyway, so what's the point?' Again, that seemed like one of those attitudes that might have had a point in the 1950s, but in more modern times seems bitter and outright cruel. I also acknowledge that it comes from both sides. There are men out there that have an attitude about equal rights and regard women in such a way that one might end up wondering if said men have travelled forward in time from the 50s or were in suspended animation and only just woke up. As for one point that's not really feminism but is still interesting. In Firefox, the dictionary has the word misogyny but not the word misandry. A minor thing but still interesting. -- Submitted By: (ExplodingConsole) on August 23, 2011, 3:07 pm

So, why not have the Pro Bowl somewhere in the middle and get rid of that Bye week crap (It's still 16 regular games, right?) Or just eliminate it all together. Furthermore, I understand they don't want to get hurt during the off season, but put a little effort into it. YOUR "ALL-STARS" -- Submitted By: (Jp) on August 18, 2011, 3:24 pm

Sonic Drive-In - Random Topics
I have to comment on this because this happened today. My wife picked up Sonic this morning. She bought, what I'm guessing is Sonics answer to McDonalds Mcskillet burrito,which is phucking nasty. Well,so is Sonics! I guess they couldn't bother with putting crumbled sausage in the burrito. Instead, they were patties. The bacon was rubbery to the point of inedibility. I think they forgot to heat it up because the cheese was not melted. It was just awful. Their Burgers are decent at best. -- Submitted By: (Jp) on August 13, 2011, 6:19 pm

Global warming - Random Topics
I agree with kingbk. Yes, its good to keep a good, clean environment. But man as the sole cause of global warming/climate change/whatever they will call it next, I call BS on it. I'm sure man made pollution doesn't help, but last I checked, the earth has cooled down and heated up over the millions (and billions) of years this planet has existed. I would bet you any money that if the earth was cooling down and not heating up, the spin doctors would claim that man was the sole reason of that too. -- Submitted By: (PYLrulz) on August 12, 2011, 5:48 pm

My take: is climate change happening? Yes. Are we responsible for it? I think very little. I think the universe is on its own course and will heat up and cool down when it feels like it and there's not a damn thing we really can do about it. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on August 11, 2011, 9:46 pm

Global warming - Random Topics
This is why I'm undecided on global warming. On one hand, it's supposed to be hot, it's SUMMER. But record highs? Will we see record lows in winter? If the Earth is getting hotter as a whole, why aren't the record highs occurring in winter? If it's rechristened "climate change" to reflect unusual cold spells, why aren't there record lows in summer? And considering all the advances made in reducing carbon footprints (regulations, taxing and banning eco-unfriendly products, making products using renewable resources, etc.), global warming is getting WORSE? Why would it get worse if we've made strides against it? To think of it another way: Imagine you're overweight. For one week, you cut down your intake of foods high in fat and calories, and ate foods low in fat, sodium, cholesterol, and calories. At the end of the week, you wound up gaining five pounds. Wouldn't something be fishy to you? -- Submitted By: (Robert) on August 11, 2011, 2:41 pm

I agree fully that the 16-bit era was the golden age of video gaming. You had amazing graphics, good gameplay, intricate storylines, and improved music and sound. It was a sad day when the 16-bit era came to an end. The Playstation and N64 era were strange to me at first: suddenly, everything was in 3D, and almost nothing looked like the classics I grew up with. However, I adapted, and years later, the PS2 and GC were released. Those systems still had good games, and though they were awesome in their own right, they could never capture the magic of the 16-bit era. I don't know how to vote. Though it was the 16-bit era in which video games were at their peak, video games today are still awesome. Plus, you can go back to your Super Nintendo today...if you didn't sell it in a garage sale. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on August 11, 2011, 2:22 pm

I am always disappointed whenever they reveal the nominees for the hall and see some of my favourite artists being snubbed yet again.

Yes, they had a few big hits but were they ever rock hall worthy? The same can be said about LL Cool J. -- Submitted By: (JayD) on August 11, 2011, 12:00 am

I think that Hanna-Barbera boned in the 1970s, when they did almost nothing memorable but Scooby Doo (and even that got tiring after a while). However, I will say that they unboned in the 1990s when they made things like Two Stupid Dogs and What a Cartoon. -- Submitted By: (cartooner) on August 9, 2011, 8:31 am

After putting some thought into it, I've decided that video games peaked at the 16-bit era. You could finally have colorful and detailed sprites, intricate music, and a sparing amount of digitized speech. Also by that time most games had implemented continues, game saves, and actual game endings. (Most 8-bit games didn't and are frustrating in retrospect because of it.) After that time, games just got too complicated: Every game becoming polygon based 3D, too many buttons and difficult controls, too many talky cinema scenes, etc. And don't even get me started on DLC. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on August 5, 2011, 9:52 pm

There's one double standard in Video games that I don't get is. It's considered sexist to have the protagonist rescue his girlfriend, the princess or another female character that is a damsel in distress. That's fine as, well, it is sexist and I can see how Girls and Women would find it annoying and it could seem as though they're often excluded from the adventure based on nothing more then gender. The double standard is how often the protagonists parents/guardians are killed off or imprisoned in one way or another. Now, I know this a common theme in story telling if not one of the most common. I understand that revenge/justice is an easy way to motivate the protagonist on his or her quest and/or a way to motivate them to become a hero in the first place. However, I find myself questioning if that theme is risking alienating gamers that are old enough to be parents in the same way the damsels in distress was alienating potential female players. With the average age of gamers being well into adulthood with plenty of families where the parents play games almost if not just as much as the kids do, I'm surprised that this hasn't become an issue. Then again, with the theme being old as story telling itself, perhaps people are simply used to it and thus, don't let it bother them too much. Am I the only one that has wondered about this? -- Submitted By: (ExplodingConsole) on August 5, 2011, 11:42 am
