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.

Mobile Phones - Random Topics
I work in the high tech/mobile industry as a marketing/pr rep, which is ironic in the fact that I myself own a very low tech cell phone. In many ways I see the benefits of cell phones, but I do agree they are going overboard in different areas as well. All I really care to do with a cell phone is call people. I don't need the games, video, etc. I also think people are too obsessed with their phones, but it's no different than people being obsessed with TV, the internet, or any other high tech gizmo of our generation. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on October 13, 2010, 7:53 pm

California - Random Topics
A beautiful state that went down the drain. Sure the weather is amazing, but the state is overrun by extreme liberals, special interests, unions, and the most inefficient government in the country. It's overcrowded, too expensive, too many taxes, too many illegals, too many flaky people, all the good jobs are leaving the state and it's just not worth it anymore. It was fun for the few years I lived here, but my wife and I are looking for somewhere more genuine and less stressful to have roots. Buying a house and having savings of any kind are prohibitive for most here. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on October 13, 2010, 2:48 pm

2000s - Random Topics
I've enjoyed reading these comments about our most recent decade- now completed. Here are my thoughts from an entertainment point of view. Entertainment (movies, comics, music, film, TV shows etc.) have gone from being from fewer studios/ and or production companies to many different sources and places- this has led to things a very broad mix of things that are very good- better than we have ever gotten before (see TV shows like The Shield or Mad Men/ Movies like "There will be blood" for the extreme good) to the complete crap end of the spectrum the other way (American Idol, Crap CGI pictures for families etc.) the crap has outweighed the good by a mile- so there is a perception that entertainment has gone downhill- it has for a large degree, but the good stuff is really good, and harder to find in all mediums. For the smart consumer- this is fine with me, it's easy to avoid the garbage, and you can find many gems. Now 20 years ago there was more of a median to entertainment where there were less things, and they were more or less closer in general quality, but not as much stood out as outstanding. Read the Book "Brave New World" for a great speech about the ability of the masses to understand great entertainment and how the masses are entertained by garbage. Now another focus has been remakes- I think this is because of all of the choices, we can individualize our personal entertainment much more than in the past, so to find a common touch stone, you have to go abck to when we ahd less choices- Think Evlis Presley, Star Trek, or Wizard of Oz- we all KNOW WHAT THEY ARE. Could anything be that big or widely known again? Probably not it is too fragmented with media outlets and platforms now to stick out to everyone. So the 2000's are filled with gargbage, but for the smart entertainment consumer it is a great time to be an observer- Boned for the masses , because they get screwed all the time! -- Submitted By: (Chubby Rain) on October 10, 2010, 5:55 pm

Not only that but Internet access is now -- for lack of a better term -- much more accessible then it was in the 90s. In that case, it was definitely the proliferation of always on high speed connections that made the Internet go from hobby or novelty to the point of being a lifestyle. The Internet has also made the average person more knowledgeable because of the access to information. Plenty of people also reached life milestones in the 2000s such as graduating from school, getting married, having kids etc. So, yes, it indeed wasn't all bad. -- Submitted By: (ExplodingConsole) on October 8, 2010, 9:46 pm

2000s - Random Topics
The 2000s sucked compared to the 90s and 80s. I think the start of the 2000s was on 9/11/01. That was when terrorism became such a primary focus in our lives. Technology has been overdone as well. Movies use crappy CGI that looks very unconvincing and everyone is glued to their cell phones. Kids are getting even fatter than they were in the 90s because their asses are parked in front of the TV playing video games. The last piece of evidence the 2000s sucked can be found all over this site. Sitcoms as we know them died and were replaced by reality TV. -- Submitted By: (MCS) on October 8, 2010, 12:42 am

Bowl Championship Series (BCS) - Random Topics
Speaking of Boise, all the pressure is on them to run the table so that they'll at least have a chance to play in a BCS bowl. Boise is currently #4 (they were leapfrogged by a BCS team even though they beat NMSU by 59, go figure), but since they aren't from a BCS conference, they better hope they run the table to even be CONSIDERED for a shot at any big-name bowl. If they lose a game, even just ONE game this year, they might as well kiss their hopes goodbye. They probably wouldn't even be ranked anymore if they were to lose. Meanwhile, a big-name school that has the BCS kissing its feet (USC and Oklahoma, I'm looking at YOU) can lose three games in one year and still manage to keep their ranking. The sooner the BCS crumbles, the sooner we can get back to a system of college football where everyone has an equal shot at the title. -- Submitted By: (ScottyB) on October 4, 2010, 4:15 pm

That does it MCS, you have forced me to go on a political rant!!! j/k :-) IMO the idea of divorce became popular when after the "sexual revolution" men and women alike started asking themselves why buy the cow when you can get the milk for free, if ya know what I mean. It's casual sex that destroyed marriage as our grandparents knew it.

1990's - Random Topics
I say that the 90s ended on September 11th because that was when we really were into the era of George W. Bush's presidency. That single event was the very last tie that severed his administration from the Clinton administration and it was what defined the Bush administration. It seemed in general society took a very different focus than what it had before. Terrorism was even more at the forefront than what it was before and of course politically Bush's administration was much more conservative than Clinton's. I will agree that pop culture signs of the 00s were visible in 98-99; The Simpsons was tanking, boy bands were taking over, and reality TV was starting to appear (look at the FOX network). I think every decade does have a bit of a transition but I think September 11th abruptly changed the 90s into the 00s. You also cannot discount the burst of the dot com bubble in 2001. -- Submitted By: (MCS) on October 3, 2010, 11:18 am

1990's - Random Topics
I guess reality really is in the eye of the beholder. I don't remember divorce rates being all that bad until the past 10-20 years. But, like everything, perhaps some areas have higher rates then others. As well, it could be that I'm now simply more aware of it. I graduated HS in 1997 (though from a five year system). One could classify my generation as being the next generation after yours. Although, to be honest, I think I relate more to Gen X then to Gen Y. Though in some ways, I feel caught right in the middle. Sort of, feeling not cool enough for Gen X but not haven grown up surrounded with tech to the extreme people perceive with Gen Y. The mid-late 90s were a lot different from the early 90s. The one thing I associate with the early 90s was the whole PC movement. I think the Internet growing more popular in the mid-late 90s was what really got the tech obsessed ball rolling and ushered in a sort of second 90s era. People started getting more knowledgeable but perhaps some loss of innocence accompanied that knowledge. The Internet growing in popularity seemed to be around where technology took off and perhaps went too far. But, I accept that this is matter of opinion. For all I know, 20 years from now we could be discussing that time as the more innocent days. Perhaps it indeed is a case of one's perception of a decade mattering more. Maybe there is no 'real' definition of a decade as much as there is a definition of what one experienced during that decade. -- Submitted By: (ExplodingConsole) on September 30, 2010, 6:39 pm

Know what the BCS reminds me of? The "in" crowd in high school. Why? Because they wouldn't let anyone in who wasn't already a member no matter what. Already you've got people arguing that Boise shouldn't be allowed to play for a title period and a one loss team from any of the BCS conferences should get in ahead of them instead, and these people are VEHEMNT about this.

1990's - Random Topics
MCS, I disagree about when the 90s officially ended. Just like "the sixties" was really just '65-'69, the 90s were really just from '91 to '97. In '97 and '98 things started going downhill and then bottomed out in '99 when all of pop culture boned the fish. And who put divorce as a reason? The frequent divorce phenomenon actually started in the 80s. Half the kids I went to school with were from broken homes and I graduated high school in '91. I even remember the school counselor asking me if my parents were still together for graduation arrangements, that's how common divorce was even back then. And also, kids of the 90s never really got the chance to imitate the 60s because the baby boomers saw that my generation was the first one to really question authority since those days and because THEY were now in authority they did their best to stamp us out, including attaching the derisive and dismissive "Gen X" label to us--and then turning around and spoiling the generation right after us rotten!!! -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on September 29, 2010, 8:07 pm

That being said, I do not care much for the comic either, but at least it doesn't freak lefties out into thinking righties are taking this country straight to hell (short of the Bush bashing it did when he was in office). -- Submitted By: (PYLrulz) on September 27, 2010, 10:15 pm

1990's - Random Topics
The 90s was a fun decade. That was my high school years and it was a great time to be a teenager. There were good sitcoms on TV. The Simpsons was king and you also had Friends, Home Improvement, NYPD Blue, and the X-Files. This was the last time that there were regularly good sitcoms on TV, before reality TV took over. The 90s witnessed the decline of MTV but had some decent music until the bubblegum music of the latter part of the decade took over and hip-hop and rap became the norm. The 90s ended on September 11, 2001. I guess you can't really say it boned, it just went past its prime (except in fashion which still seems to be hanging on). As an aside, does anyone else think the transition period from about 1989-1991 was such an awkward time period? It was a weird bridge between the two decades. -- Submitted By: (MCS) on September 12, 2010, 1:04 pm

McDonalds - Random Topics
Not a McDonald's fan and haven't eaten there in years. I personally don't think the food tastes good, but that's my opinion. Having said that, McDonald's boned the fish when they dumped the McDonaldland characters and started the "I'm lovin' it" campaign aimed for urban audience. The ads bug the crap out of me and seem to be pandering. Also, I love how they only emphasize their healthy options these days. I can't remember the last ad I saw for a Big Mac or Quarterpounder, but seem to see ones for the snack wraps and coffee pretty much all the time. Most people I know who go to McDonald's don't go for their salads, they go for their burgers or chicken McNuggets.

Action 52 (NES) - Random Topics
Believe it or not, I actually got to play Action 52 on a REAL cartridge. Before AVGN's review came around. So, when did Action 52 bone the fish? For me, it's a tie: realizing how many glitches there actually are, the awful controls, and how stupid the games' premises were: A guy with giant feet stomping on eyeballs. A giant baby climbing furniture and squirting milk at adults half its size. Indecipherable mishmashes of pixels shooting odd-looking bullets at other indecipherable mishmashes of pixels. And with that last sentence, I summed up the premises for more than half the games. But if I have to choose the one game which proved A52 BTFed, I guess it should be Cheetahmen. Why? Because you'd think the other games were poorly made because all the attention went to this one. Sadly for those who paid $199 for this cart, Cheetahmen is only SLIGHTLY better than the other games. And even then, I'm being too generous in calling it "slightly better". The truth came to light: these people couldn't get even ONE game right, tried to cover it up by making 51 games which were worse, then tried to get rich off it by tricking unsuspecting buyers into getting 52 "new and original" games for less than $4 each. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on September 11, 2010, 1:30 pm

PYLrulz...good point. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on September 11, 2010, 12:42 pm

Unidentifed Flying Objects (UFOs) - Random Topics
But look at the flip side. Think if alien lifeforms have been studying us for years, yet want to stay totally anonymous. What better thing to do than to go after the loons in the boondocks and drunks. Nobody will listen to them. -- Submitted By: (PYLrulz) on September 11, 2010, 8:41 am

Street Fighter - Random Topics
Capcom is kind of damned if they do/don't with regards to characters. They tried an all-new cast of characters in the first version of Street Fighter III and people hated them. I wasn't fond of any of the SF3 original characters either. They were corny and weren't iconic at all. I liked them all up until 3 came out. But the story has gotten progressively more and more ridiculous. I can deal with crazy chi energy balls and such; the first two games seemed like a kung-fu movie. But now we've got robots, cyborgs, clones, mind control, people coming back from the dead, etc. SF4 was a step up from 3 though. Still haven't played Super SF 4. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on September 10, 2010, 3:00 pm

April Fools' Day - Random Topics
I stopped caring about April Fools' Day long ago - I guess the boning moment for me was when Comedy Central aired a Terrance & Philip special for South Park instead of airing the much-hyped episode where they unveil Cartman's dad. Now...pulling basic pranks just doesn't have that zing anymore. -- Submitted By: (BigAl) on September 9, 2010, 11:15 pm

Unidentifed Flying Objects (UFOs) - Random Topics
Credibility gap takes my vote. I'd like to believe there are other life forms out there, but they'd surely abduct someone who doesn't live in a shack in the boonies swigging moonshine or escaped from the local loony bin. -- Submitted By: (BigAl) on September 9, 2010, 11:11 pm

Macarena, The - Random Topics
The only time I cared about the Macarena was when I was at Alltel Stadium in Jacksonville welcoming the Jaguars back from their postseason victory in Denver in their first trip to the NFL playoffs. Other than that...didn't really care one way or another. -- Submitted By: (BigAl) on September 9, 2010, 11:07 pm

YouTube Poops - Random Topics
Some YouTube Poops are okay, but tend to overdo it with certain sound clips (i.e. Robotnik's "pingas" line, stuff out of the Mama Luigi episode). -- Submitted By: (BigAl) on September 9, 2010, 11:05 pm

Rifftrax - Random Topics
I've watched a few "best of" Rifftrax episodes on YouTube and found myself laughing at some parts. -- Submitted By: (BigAl) on September 9, 2010, 11:03 pm

Saturday Morning Cartoons - Random Topics
Boned when NBC dropped their Saturday morning cartoon line-up. It made me so mad I kicked a hole in a door. -- Submitted By: (BigAl) on September 9, 2010, 10:59 pm

Kmart - Random Topics
Everyone in my town goes to Wal-Mart and there is a shortage of employees and the self checkouts are always closed. The employees of Wal-Mart certainly can't be bothered to move at more than a snail's pace. -- Submitted By: (MCS) on September 9, 2010, 6:21 am

The mannequin ads are weird and creepy. -- Submitted By: (BrewMaster) on September 8, 2010, 9:11 pm

Rap (music) - Random Topics
I was okay with Rap when it was fun Sugar Hill Gang, MC Hammer, Young MC, Etc. However, it did seem that at one point in the early 90's it looked almost as if Rap was starting to die out and give way to something else when Rick Dees went on the Arsenio show and stated with confidence that Rap was 'on the way out.' That, to me seems to be the point where Rap rallied and went into overkill mode with all of the "cop-killer" and hyper-sexualized themes. I blame Rick Dees. -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on September 8, 2010, 12:32 pm

Pet Rock - Random Topics
Got it in one, shanequia. I still got a rock from the shore of Lake Michigan back when I was about 7 - spray-painted it silver and put on a pair of toy eyes. -- Submitted By: (BigAl) on September 7, 2010, 9:04 pm

Snuggy - Random Topics
I prefer calling the Snuggy what a parody of it on YouTube called it - the What The F@#$ Blanket. -- Submitted By: (BigAl) on September 7, 2010, 9:01 pm

Frierich...LOL! The bell-bottoms getting caught in the bicycle with the banana seat! Oh, I remember it well. -- Submitted By: (Stephanie) on September 7, 2010, 2:52 pm

State Fairs - Random Topics
LOL! That's so true, MCS! The musical entertainment is usually washed up musicians; OR, local musicians who are trying to "make it big" and a the state fair gig is part of their bread and butter in the meantime. The good thing about State Fairs is the cotton candy! How often to people eat cotton candy? Once a year at the state fair. -- Submitted By: (Stephanie) on September 7, 2010, 2:30 pm

Kmart - Random Topics
Come to the KMart near my house. You would be lucky to have two lines open, and they are always long. -- Submitted By: (PYLrulz) on September 6, 2010, 3:17 pm

Kmart - Random Topics
One KMart I visited had only one checkout lane open. Luckily, there was a small line, but still. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on September 6, 2010, 11:03 am

State Fairs - Random Topics
State fairs are a good indication of who in the music business is washed-up. It's pretty sad who comes out of the woodwork to perform at these. -- Submitted By: (MCS) on September 5, 2010, 9:58 pm

A total farce if you ask me. All that hysteria and panic over absolutely nothing was laughable. -- Submitted By: (BigAl) on September 5, 2010, 8:46 am

Never heard of them until I registered on BTF. Strange they've remained silent ever since Obama's inauguration. -- Submitted By: (BigAl) on September 5, 2010, 8:43 am
