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.

MTV: Music Television - Random Topics
I remember being into MTV from 1994-1999. There were still videos on the channel usually during the day and then it went to shows at night and on weekends. I loved most of the videos, I had to change the channel when rap came on because my dad didn't like it. The channel I would say began to suck in 1999 when TRL became the only video show and was over focused on Britney Spears, Backstreet Boys, N Sync, Christina Agulera, Eminem, and mostly anything I hated. Nowadays there are only a few groups from the past decade that I like mainly Green Day, Weezer, Franz Ferdinand, and Ben Folds. All other music I listen to usually has a 1997 or earlier copyright date. -- Submitted By: (jconifer7) on May 14, 2010, 4:41 pm

1960's - Random Topics
Without every social change that happened in the 1960's I don't know where the world would be. A decade doesn't have to be pretty to be great, and to be honest I sometimes envy those who lived in this decade. Gen Y members like me have problems facing us now but we had it too easy for too long and from what I have seen with today's terrorism fears and sustainability challenges, I fear society has become too much about blaming the other person.

MTV: Music Television - Random Topics
I watched MTV back in the early years up to 84 when I didn't have cable anymore. In those days it was very addictive, I could watch it all the time to see all the cool and crappy video's that the bands were putting out. In those days there wasn't an inexpensive way to make great videos (DV cameras and iMovie) so only a few bands actually put out a video. Now even low budget bands put out videos, but only on youtube or break.com . I keep looking for a channel to watch videos, but once I find one they go through the same tranformation. MTV2 was music for a year or two before it mirrored MTV. Fuse used to be decent for music, but it too has gone the same direction. I don't understand what is going on. At least Youtube video quality is getting better and better so I can see bands release videos there. Is there any other channels or websites that are dedicated to music videos? I would like to know.

Disney Channel - Random Topics
Long ago, in the past, when they played a movie, it would be uninterrupted. That changed over a decade ago when they had commercial breaks. Advertising themselves. #1: Look, if you're going to interrupt a movie, it should be from your sponsors, so we know who paid for this program to air. #2: If you're airing commercials from your sponsors, WTF? I already paid to watch this show when I bought the cable/satellite package. So now, I'm paying for it TWICE? #3: Interrupting a show to promote yourself does nothing but piss off your customers. They'll buy the movies on tapes (DVD wasn't available at the time) and you'll lose customers who dump the Disney channel so they can watch their uninterrupted movies on home video. I hoped they would dump the mid-movie commercials, but no dice. That was the BTF moment for me. It kept going downhill from there. Good bye, classics.

Political Correctness - Random Topics
I'm not going to say there are no Conservatives who try to censor stuff they deem offensive, but unlike conservatives, when a liberal pushes to censor something, they usually get their way. A liberal's idea of PC is not limited to replacing words with euphemisms ("Little person" instead of "dwarf" or "midget", etc.). If you took kingbk's post and replaced "atheism" with "God", "abortion" with "Pro-Life", and "profanity" with "prayer", it would be a pretty accurate example of liberal censorship. Let me conclude with a lesson from the Simpsons: You can't be for one form of freedom of speech but against another. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on May 6, 2010, 7:58 pm

I also hate how she can now easily kick Bart's ass. It's happened in several recent episodes. She even socks him good in the Movie.

Disney Channel - Random Topics
Went BTF in the early 2000s. At that time, some family friends of mine who I was seeing a lot of had young grandchildren spending a lot of time in their house, so the Disney Channel was on in the background pretty much all the time and I couldn't help but notice it. It seemed to have a collective case of bratty (and snotty) attitude, and might as well have had as a tagline "We annoy the hell out of your parents and we're damn proud of it." Since then, unless they happen to be showing a classic movie I want to see again (which anymore is a pretty rare occurrence), I just haven't been interested in watching it. No great loss -- it sure doesn't sound I've been missing much! -- Submitted By: (Mythigator) on May 5, 2010, 7:27 am

Disney Channel - Random Topics
When Disney Channel stopped being a pay channel and went to basic cable. The programming got worse and worse, plus commercials (ALWAYS self-promotion spots for Disney Channel) started appearing. Slowly the old cartoons and shows disappeared in favor of new things that had absolutely nothing to do with Disney. By 2003, the channel stopped caring about the young children and family demographics and aimed solely at teenagers. The result: Hannah Montana, High School Musical, and many more similar steaming piles of garbage. Just like MTV, Bravo, A&E and many other cable channels, Disney Channel lost its initial purpose and transformed into something unrecognizable and boring. It has long boned. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on May 5, 2010, 12:52 am

Calvin and Hobbes - Random Topics
Never boned. Sure, I'd love new strips, but I'd rather it end on top than on a decline, and it did indeed end on top. Look at other cartoons like Garfield and you see recycled story lines that are growing stale. The great thing about Watterson's strip is you can read it today and it's just as fresh as it was twenty years ago. The story lines don't age and neither do the characters. Calvin, Hobbes, Susie, his parents, Moe, the babysitter and Miss Wormwood never lost their charm all 10 years of the strip. It's hard to say that with most comics. Bill Watterson's mood swings towards the end got a bit annoying, especially in the 10 Year Anniversary Book, which had more complaining than I cared for, but I didn't see it bleed into the strips. They stayed intelligent, hilarious and enjoyable. Today the comic page is pretty much a wasteland except for the occasional Fox Trot or Peanuts rerun. Blondie, Dennis the Menace, Gasoline Alley, Garfield and the insufferable Family Circus are all showing their age. It's too bad there aren't any new cartoons to step up and take their spot. In fact, one could say Calvin and Hobbes leaving back in 1996 is when the comic page in general boned the fish. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on May 3, 2010, 5:19 pm

Obesity - Random Topics
Obesity is a problem, a problem that has been blown way out of proportion by the left. Are kids fatter these days? Yes. Who's to blame? First and foremost are the parents. Taking your kids to McDonald's for most of their meals is the problem. Letting kids play video games and sit around indoors is the problem. Letting kids eat junk food on a regular basis is the problem. When I was a kid, McDonald's or fast food was a once a week, maybe twice a week treat. Most of the time I played sports outside with my friends. When I got into high school I was involved. Today as a functioning adult I can watch what I eat, work out, and at the same time enjoy a treat or fast food without it ruining my health. I did this because of my parents, not because of Super Size Me, not because of laws regulating food choices, not because vending machines were taken out of my high school (they weren't), but because my parents taught me a good balanced diet, the benefits of exercise, and at times indulging yourself. People suing McDonald's or demanding that P.E. be taken out of school programs are way off base here. Weird diets, government laws, and hatred towards fast food aren't the problem. Lazy, indifferent parents are the problem. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on May 3, 2010, 11:32 am

Rap (music) - Random Topics
Wait, Eminem has a social conscience? Since when? Honestly, I'm old enough to remember rap from the beginning and it was *always* trash, only I listened to it when I was a teen because...I was a teen. In the 80s every song was all "I'm from da hood and I kill ten people every day before breakfast and then I screw some bitches and hos then I kill some more people so don't mess with me or you're next!" Then in the early 90s the content actually improved a little but the fad of deliberately NOT rapping in time with the beat started and got on my nerves. Then in the late 90s suddenly it was all about "Look at all my bling, I'm much richer than you! And here are all the hot chicks I'm boning! Be jealous of me!" Ever since then I've pretty much stopped paying attention but even *I've* noticed it's gotten even worse. They can't even call it "rap" anymore, now it's "hip hop" since that sounds less threatening to parents of today's teens. -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on May 3, 2010, 3:14 am

Just read what Maddox said about it. That is all. -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on May 3, 2010, 2:27 am

Wal-Mart - Random Topics
Stephanie, if you were FORCED to do a group cheer before starting work every day, you'd probably be mean and hateful too! Yes, it's true--all Wal Mart employees are made to gather 'round in a circle and literally do the "Wal Mart cheer" every shift change. I know someone who worked there and told me this, plus I've actually seen it--they sometimes do it right out in the open! -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on May 3, 2010, 2:10 am

Oregon Trail, The - Random Topics
My third grade teacher didn't take well to my classmates naming party members after Ninja Turtles and Simpson characters and told us we couldn't play this game anymore. Thank God this game could be played on a PC with a CGA monitor at my house. -- Submitted By: (jconifer7) on May 2, 2010, 11:35 pm

Subway (Restaurant) - Random Topics
For all that Subway is worth, people should just pack their lunch instead. Yes, they have healthy menu items, but they still have one thing in common with other fast food restaurants, they are a money waste. If they truly cared about your health, they would stop selling soda, chips, cookies, and their subs that are over 6 grams of fat at six inches, discontinue footlongs, and serve whole wheat bread only. But as you can tell from the fact that they don't do that, the plain fact is, they are a business in it for money. It's one thing to stop for lunch casually when you are with friends, but don't make Subway a daily routine. Flatten your belly, not your bank account. -- Submitted By: (jconifer7) on May 2, 2010, 11:31 pm

Socialism - Random Topics
An economics professor at Texas Tech said he had never failed a single student before but had, once, failed an entire class. The class had insisted that socialism worked and that no one would be poor and no one would be rich, a great equalizer. The professor then said, "OK, we will have an experiment in this class on socialism." All grades would be averaged and everyone would receive the same grade so no one would fail and no one would receive an A. After the first test the grades were averaged and everyone got a B. The students who studied hard were upset and the students who studied little were happy. But, as the second test rolled around, the students who studied little had studied even less and the ones who studied hard decided that since they could not make an A, they studied less. The second Test average was a D! No one was happy. When the 3rd test rolled around the average was an F. The scores never increased as bickering, blame, name calling all resulted in hard feelings and no one would study for anyone else. All failed to their great surprise and the professor told them that socialism would ultimately fail because the harder people try to succeed the greater their reward but when a government takes all the reward away; no one will try or succeed. And that, my friends, is why I'm 100% against socialism in our country. I will work hard for myself and expect you to do the same and I will donate and help out the needy when I want to, not when the government forces me to. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on May 2, 2010, 7:28 pm

Rap (music) - Random Topics
When they decided to go from fighting the power to boasting about their bitches and hos in the club. Really, when social conscious was gone so was the integrity of rap. We only have Eminem left and even he is declining. -- Submitted By: (johnnydough) on May 2, 2010, 5:44 pm

Lisa Simpson - Random Topics
Johnnydough, your description of Lisa's character evolution hit the nail on the head. Lisa complains that no one pays attention to her, but I have a newsflash for her: nobody wants to pay attention to a constant whiner! I love how you called her an "alleged" Buddhist. I guess I'm not the only one who noticed that despite identifying herself as a Buddhist, her views are more in line with that of an atheist or agnostic (feeling the people of Springfield were stupid to believe in angels, among other things. I know the angel statue was fake after all, but that's beside the point). You know how one reason the Simpsons boned is because it became a parody of itself? Lisa's a good example: all the stuff she complained about in the early episodes? She became them herself! Criticizing Homer for changing his religion to one he founded (but it was perfectly OK for her to convert to Buddhism), complaining during Burns' election campaign that she and her family became political "tools of evil" (later on becoming one herself to promote extreme ideals and political views), and I haven't even scratched the surface. I'd be here all day if I wrote them all down. I especially love how Lisa turned her back on the United States by pretending to be Canadian just because Bush was president at the time. Classy. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on May 2, 2010, 11:28 am

Lisa Simpson - Random Topics
Even a lot of die-hard Simpsons fans consider the episode "Lisa the Vegetarian" to be her low point. It wasn't that they had any problem with her adopting a vegatarian diet, but that her ruining Homer's barbecue was both mean-spirited and totally out of character (even though Bart and Homer chasing after the rolling grill was a HELL of a funny scene). -- Submitted By: (Mythigator) on May 2, 2010, 8:31 am

Lisa Simpson - Random Topics
Oh lord, where to begin. She was at first a slightly annoying but likable little girl as you could know someone like her being bright and trying to show insight into modern issues. However, she eventually became less likable and more mean-spirited as the show went along then was manipulative, disdainful and all-but-a mouthpiece for liberal commentary. Lots of bad karma for this alleged Buddhist and a pile of boned not-fish for her. -- Submitted By: (johnnydough) on May 2, 2010, 6:05 am

Profanity - Random Topics
Without a doubt, profanity has become way too commonplace nowadays. If people think they are being expressive, cool or grown up by using strong profanities frequently they are very mistaken. -- Submitted By: (johnnydough) on May 1, 2010, 5:57 am

Atheism - Random Topics
I am accepting of whatever religion and denomination a person chooses to be, even most cults (if a person wants to be a Scientologist, fine). Where it gets less tolerable is when they become militant, violent or just plain disdainful about "other" people's faith. Atheism is a prime example of this. You do not *have* to believe in God, Allah, karma etc but then you do not have to purely believe only what science or Earthly material tells you. There is that issue you try explaining aspects of religion to atheists and there is a chance they will not listen as they think they are right and nothing will do so otherwise. Then there is the faith aspect, where it is only seen as a "religion" thing but that is needed for true belief in anything. I will not say that it boned the fish, as that is insensitive but the idea does need critiquing and close analysis. -- Submitted By: (johnnydough) on May 1, 2010, 2:10 am

Obesity - Random Topics
I agree with MCS that obesity hardly qualifies as an epidemic: it's neither killing people in alarming numbers nor difficult to cure (eating less and exercising more are two of many cures to this so-called "epidemic"). I'm also sick and tired of people calling it an "epidemic". But, it's not fat people's fault that their condition has been given this ridiculously inaccurate term. People who consistently use incorrect words and change the words' meanings to reflect their new definitions are to blame. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on April 28, 2010, 7:36 pm

Body Piercing - Random Topics
To each their own on this but I never could see the point of getting something permanent that would have to be covered up or explained away re job interviews or that special someone who just happened to hate them! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on April 28, 2010, 6:33 pm

Edsel - Random Topics
Sad irony of it is that it was named for Henry Ford's dumped on and dissed only son who died prematurely but whose own son Henry II would take over his grandfather's company after the old man died. Yep, Henry II gave this car his late dad's tag in the hopes of having something of his dad being memorialized for posterity but instead the name itself became a punch line. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on April 28, 2010, 6:26 pm

Edsel - Random Topics
I agree with some, but not all, of the comment below on the Edsel. I always felt that mechanically, the Edsel was a typical car of its era, and it was probably as reliable as anything Detroit produced during that period (apart from some understandable teething troubles that will crop up on any new design when it first launches). I also agree that the timing of the Edsel's launch (at the beginning of a pretty major recession) had a hand in the car being seen as unsuccessful. But I must disagree about the styling - for the term "striking" I would substitute "distinctive", and that is not meant in a good way. The vertical front grille was certainly unique, but in my opinion it looked hideous. I saw a restored Edsel out on the road last week, and I still think it looks awful. The 1960 Edsels actually replaced the vertical grille, and I think they looked a lot better, but by then the brand was doomed. -- Submitted By: (Eugene) on April 28, 2010, 11:55 am

Body Piercing - Random Topics
Years ago, I joked that the final frontier of piercing would be having a hole drilled through your head from one side to the other (through the brain), with a large stud that fit through the hole. I thought that this was an truly absurd idea that no one would ever try. But they have (in a limited fashion) -- see http://www.tattooique.com/info/brain-piercing-extreme-body-piercing-idea/ -- Submitted By: (Eugene) on April 28, 2010, 11:00 am

Obesity - Random Topics
I hate when people call this an epidemic. That would imply it was a disease that people had trouble fighting. This can be cured by getting off your ass and moving around once in a while. -- Submitted By: (MCS) on April 27, 2010, 9:40 pm

Pizza Hut - Random Topics
MCS I remember that about the best thing in the world as a kid in the 80s was going to Pizza Hut after Little League or various other kid activities. And I could have been bribed into absolutely anything with a trip to Pizza Hut afterward. It seems to have lost that mystique for kids... oh well, I had my fun. -- Submitted By: (doctor_awesome) on April 27, 2010, 7:06 pm

Archie Comics - Random Topics
Archie Comics already boned to some extent with the dynamic art (I miss the old animation!). To add a gay character to the comic would probably be a step in the wrong direction, in my opinion. -- Submitted By: (MacFan95) on April 27, 2010, 5:35 pm

Archie Comics - Random Topics
I foresee Mr. Parent's plan being changed in favor of having some ancillary character come out- Moose, Jughead etc. and then it will be billed as a proper change for the comic to reflect current values. -- Submitted By: (Chubby Rain) on April 27, 2010, 10:57 am

9/11 Truth Movement - Random Topics
The 1993 attack was a warning, but it was ignored. Nobody knows for sure who dropped the ball and gave al-Qaida the window of opportunity on 9/11, but the 9/11 Truth Movement's conspiracy theorists are nuttier than Planters products. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on April 27, 2010, 8:58 am
