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.

TV Guide - Random Topics
The only time I cared about TV Guide was when South Park was about to reveal who Cartman's dad was (but they instead did that Terrance & Phillip special instead for a lame April Fools' prank) - the cover of TV Guide showed something like Jeopardy where Cartman was the MC and the others were contestants (Kenny was getting shocked by the signal button, no surprise there). Other than that, I haven't bothered with them, and I'm glad I don't have anything to do with them. -- Submitted By: (BigAl) on September 15, 2010, 12:43 am

Sirius XM Satellite Radio - Random Topics
I like having this, especially when I drive out in the middle of nowhere, which I have to frequently. My main problem is with some of the stations (the 80s one being the worst) the DJs continue to talk when the song is playing. Shut up while the song is playing! -- Submitted By: (MCS) on September 12, 2010, 1:11 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. Oh well, McDonald's will always be a good way to relieve constipation. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on September 11, 2010, 2:39 pm

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

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

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

D-Generation X - Random Topics
When the group was heel, they were good, but when they were a face group, some of the stuff they did was EPIC (Impersonating The Nation of Domination, Vince McMahon, going to a WCW event to raise hell with the fans). By 2009, when they reformed DX one last time, it was pretty obvious that they were reformed just to sell stuff. Sure, Shawn Michaels and Triple H are great entertainers, and they still did some funny stuff, but with a PG WWE, there was not a lot they could do. -- Submitted By: (PYLrulz) on August 25, 2010, 3:00 pm

Veganism - Random Topics
Anyone can be vegan, vegetarian, or a meat-eater without guilt-tripping the others' diets.

Socialism - Random Topics
Yeah, Nazi was short for "National Socialists" but that doesn't mean they brought socialism to Germany or that was their main platform point(there are obvious others). Germany has traditionally been socialist regardless of where their political pendulum swings. Anyhow, I'm not a socialist but like it as a balance for capitalism. Pure capitalism may be more interesting but unbridled capitalism allows those who cheat or exploit the system get away with it. With capitalism there are winners and losers. The problem is what to do with the losers. Pure capitalists will say that the winners will hire the losers to work for them especially if they get lower tax rates. Ok, those workers will be hired but paid as low as possible no matter the tax rate is and if another nation can provide cheaper labor they will go there no matter how low the tax rate is. Capitalism has sense of patriotism just make money as efficiently as possible. So the question is what to do with the losers if they can't afford basic living needs? If those winners are not hiring them or paying them a decent wage, then the govt has to tax the winners to give the losers money to afford what they need. Either that or give them credit cards and put them in eternal debt. It is more complex than this but this why socialism exists. So the wealthy will still have to pay for the poorer in society whether they pay them for work or through the govt. Again, I might be oversimplifying this but this is just what I see. I'm not trying to be anti-capitalist or pro-socialist if that's how I come across but this is just the way I see things. -- Submitted By: (JamesO) on August 19, 2010, 11:11 pm

Independence Day (USA) - Random Topics
The Second Day of July 1776, will be the most memorable Epocha, in the History of America. I am apt to believe that it will be celebrated, by succeeding Generations, as the great anniversary Festival. It ought to be commemorated, as the Day of Deliverance by solemn Acts of Devotion to God Almighty. It ought to be solemnized with Pomp and Parade, with Shews, Games, Sports, Guns, Bells, Bonfires and Illuminations from one End of this Continent to the other from this Time forward forever more. You will think me transported with Enthusiasm but I am not. I am well aware of the Toil and Blood and Treasure, that it will cost Us to maintain this Declaration, and support and defend these States. Yet through all the Gloom I can see the Rays of ravishing Light and Glory. I can see that the End is more than worth all the Means. And that Posterity will tryumph in that Days Transaction, even altho We should rue it, which I trust in God We shall not." John Adams -- Submitted By: (BrewMaster) on August 19, 2010, 9:06 am

I'm vegan, it's a personal choice. I don't feel comfortable being responsible for doling out that kind of suffering and pain on any living being. It's easy to close yourself off from what actually happens in factory farms because you never have to deal with it, but I choose to acknowledge those facts and not contribute to them. I also don't pull the "guilt-the-carnivores" stance either. People are so offended by people like me making a personal choice and I don't get why. It's the way I choose to live my life, that is all.

ESPN - Random Topics
You know, I think ESPN has always been for the casual fan. At one point it was entertaining enough to appeal to everyone when Sportscenter was in its golden years, but really they've always been about watered down coverage for casual fans. A serious sports fan wants to see all or most of their team games, hear quality coverage and analysis from a full-time reporter... a serious fan is never going to be satisfied with Joe Morgan reading the notes someone else prepared for him and Chris Berman screaming cliches in lieu of providing any kind of meaningful analysis. But hey if you just want a bit of entertainment with sports in it, ESPN is there for you. That's their game plan. They have been doing this for decades. -- Submitted By: (doctor_awesome) on August 17, 2010, 9:41 am

Video Games - Random Topics
I was a huge gamer back in the day, but not to the point kids are today. When I played games, it was a diversion with friends for an hour, maybe 2, to kill some time during summer vacation or Christmas break. Now, kids play games ALL DAY LONG and never go outside, exercise, or have real life friends besides those they meet through playing their games. I feel it's definitely one of the major causes of the rising rate of obesity, yet it doesn't seem to get the same flack that candy, soda and fast food companies do. Sure, video games get flack, but more for the violence factor, not the obesity one. Then again, the gaming culture was a lot different in the 80s and 90s. Arcades were still popular and it was cool to go to an arcade, challenge people, drink some big gulps and eat some pizza, and maybe make a few new friends or having your friends over and playing 2 player games on the Genesis or SNES. Now it's more an activity done alone in your own home with "cyber" friends. Games back in the day had more variety. Now it's just WoW type games or first-person shooters. And like previous posters, 3-D games make me sick... So yes, I think video games have boned, probably around the time the WII and XBox 360 came out, so early to mid 2000s. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on August 12, 2010, 2:57 pm

Spyro the Dragon (video game series) - Random Topics
I'm inclined to agree that after the original trilogy, the Spyro series went downhill.

VHS - Random Topics
There is nothing wrong with VHS, it's true that tracking can be a problem and tape heads have to be cleaned, but I think it served well as a visual medium for 20 good years before DVDs showed up. And to the one who submitted that the more superior Betamax format was replaced, the problem with Beta was that it did not have a long enough recording time for movies, only one hour compared to two hours on VHS. Introducing an SLP mode to double recording time didn't work in their favor because the same setting on VHS made their recording time even longer, and because of this convenience Beta was unable to compete. -- Submitted By: (jconifer7) on August 5, 2010, 10:57 am

The sexiness comes from something being in a setting where you wouldn't expect it -- in this case, sexy women in tight clothing serving food in a restaurant. For another example, you wouldn't even blink to see a woman wearing a bikini on the beach, but if a bikini-clad woman turned up in an office setting, EVERY eye would be on her because of the "unexpected" factor. That's the best explanation I can think of for the Hooters appeal -- from everything I've heard, it's certainly not the food. -- Submitted By: (Mythigator) on August 5, 2010, 6:41 am

Disney Channel - Random Topics
It is sad to think that the people at Disney Channel probably have no idea who Ub Iwerks is. -- Submitted By: (PrinceJ) on August 4, 2010, 7:40 pm

Hooters (restaurant) - Random Topics
What is so sexy about a singlet and shorts...hundreds of runners wear that in Central Park Every day, although we wear running shoes instead of high heels. -- Submitted By: (PrinceJ) on August 4, 2010, 7:30 pm

VHS - Random Topics
So what that VHS was made obsolete by DVD (which itself is now going obsolete to Blu-Ray)? I still use VHS, as do many of the people in my family. I didn't record all those tapes over several years just to go, "Oh, DVD is here, time to get rid of them!" Forget that. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on August 4, 2010, 7:14 pm

Boomerang (TV Channel) - Random Topics
I started watching Boomerang only recently, so I didn't know it used to air Looney Tunes. But that's still a shame. Maybe the contract or rights with Warner Bros. expired or something. At least they still air Tom & Jerry and many Hanna Barbera classics. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on August 4, 2010, 7:04 pm

Macarena, The - Random Topics
Although I do like the "Macadamia Nut" dance by the Animaniacs! Narf! -- Submitted By: (PrinceJ) on August 4, 2010, 7:03 pm

Boomerang (TV Channel) - Random Topics
True. However, even Boomerang isn't without its flaws. The biggest example is (as of now, at least) the fact that they aren't airing the original Looney Tunes anymore. -- Submitted By: (cartooner) on August 3, 2010, 9:25 pm

Verizon - Random Topics
The big bone for Verizon was FIOS. Fiber to the home is cutting edge technology but it was not cost effective to deploy especially only retrofitting single occupancy developments. -- Submitted By: (scatcatpdx) on August 3, 2010, 9:09 pm

Big Mouth Billy Bass - Random Topics
I always found the talking bass creepy. -- Submitted By: (PrinceJ) on August 3, 2010, 4:43 am

Tootsie Rolls - Random Topics
Prince J, Have you ever had Necco Chocolate Wafers? Think St. Joseph's Chewable Aspirin in texture with a chocolately taste so vague(and oddly causing puckering) , that Tootsie Rolls taste almost the equivilant of Lindt Chocolate. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on August 2, 2010, 11:28 am

Tootsie Rolls - Random Topics
They don't taste like artificial chocolate. They taste like artificial artificial chocolate. Yuck. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on August 2, 2010, 11:00 am

Boomerang (TV Channel) - Random Topics
Boomerang is what Cartoon Network SHOULD have been. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on August 2, 2010, 10:59 am

Tootsie Rolls - Random Topics
The most "unchocolate" chocolate I ever tasted. -- Submitted By: (PrinceJ) on August 1, 2010, 7:20 pm

Macy's - Random Topics
The store at 34th Street is amazing, but the Macy's in my local mall is another store..a small selection of overpriced merchendise. -- Submitted By: (PrinceJ) on August 1, 2010, 6:40 pm

Lisa Simpson - Random Topics
I didn't realize that, PYLRulz! I wonder if today's episode will reflect that. When she spoke to Hugh, all she did was bash her family, bash her family, bash her family, and hyperventilate that her family would embarrass her in front of Hugh. Then, when it's Hugh's turn to say something nasty about her family..."How dare you say mean things about my family, the wedding's off!" She doesn't realize she did him a favor in the long run by leaving him at the altar. And to Chubby Rain...it's a zombie, all right. Alas, it seems that this zombie will be forced to walk even when it's reduced to nothing but a pile of dust. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on August 1, 2010, 1:09 pm

Lisa Simpson - Random Topics
Simpsons really reminds me of a TV Zombie, lurching along mindlessly at this point. It really is sad to see it come to this point staying well past the point of making any sense at all. Simpsons, please end- thanks, your old fans. -- Submitted By: (Chubby Rain) on August 1, 2010, 9:36 am

Lisa Simpson - Random Topics
For any of the fans of the Simpsons before it went to junk... Today would be Lisa's wedding... if anyone remembers the episode... http://29.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_l6g2qcu27I1qzpwi0o1_500.jpg -- Submitted By: (PYLrulz) on August 1, 2010, 6:25 am

Herb Chicken Mediterranean delite...Best Pizza Ever! -- Submitted By: (BrewMaster) on July 31, 2010, 11:01 pm

Blockbuster Video - Random Topics
Even without NetFlix, where I live there are universities and if you are a student there you can borrow DVDs/videos for free. Not to mention, some more obscure stuff is available there that you would often have to scan meticulously to find in regular video stores. It rocks in a word. -- Submitted By: (johnnydough) on July 31, 2010, 6:32 pm

Moderators (Internet Forum) - Random Topics
True that, DolFan - there are those who get intoxicated by such power at their fingertips that they think they can get away with anything. And when such excesses are not kept in check, it's a recipe for making that particular board into a virtual ghost town. -- Submitted By: (BigAl) on July 31, 2010, 11:48 am
