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.

Islam - Random Topics
Back then, Muslims got along well with Christians and Jews. However, one day, the extremists took over and kicked out everyone who was not a Muslim from Jerusalem, which was the trigger for the Crusades. Islam is not a religion of hate, it's just been hijacked by the people who twisted it to suit their fanatical desires, and maintained by the people they managed to brainwash. If the good Muslims had the power to fight back and defeated them, Muslim nations would once again prosper. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on September 19, 2012, 2:17 pm

Islam - Random Topics
Actually, if you look at Islam's early history, they were quite civilized compared to the western world (many middle eastern cities were their centers of science and culture before Europe got their stuff straight). It has been the last few hundred years or so where you have had Muslims go nuts, and it really is the leadership getting their people, most of which who live in the stone age, that has got them to believe most of the crap we see Islam as today -- Submitted By: (PYLrulz) on September 15, 2012, 10:40 am

World Series (Baseball) - Random Topics
I think Mike Lupica put it best (paraphrasing here): The players went on strike in 1994 because they were afraid the owners would unilaterally impose a salary cap in the absence of a CBA. However, when the owners actually tried this, the courts (Sonia Sotomayor) told them that they couldn't, which ended the strike toward the end of Spring Training 1995. Meanwhile, the 1994 World Series was cancelled. All of which begs the question, WHAT THE HELL WAS THE POINT OF THAT STIKE IN THE FIRST PLACE? -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on September 5, 2012, 3:56 pm

There may be other life forms out there somewhere, but we will never know them, and vice versa, unless someone can explain to me how anyone mastered traveling at many times the speed of light to get here, or how we're going to do that in order to get somewhere else.

TV Land - Random Topics
Antenna TV (if Cablevision ever brings it back) beats the hell out of TV Land now. I think the beginning of the end for TV Land was when they started showing reality garbage like "She's Got The Look" (40 and 50-somethings competing to be models for gay guys - and how are they experts on beautiful women if they're gay guys?) and "High School Reunion" (like I really care about a "hedging lesbian's" experimental "date" and didn't know how that would go, unlike the dumb guy who wasted his time with that - and she wasn't even cute so you hoped she'd "stay gay" which she did). Bring back Antenna TV Cablevision! TV Land has boned. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on September 5, 2012, 3:30 pm

Profanity - Random Topics
I'm not a big profanity advocate. Don't get me wrong, but Stir Crazy was an R-rated movie, and this channel wasn't censoring "F" or "S". They were censoring "ass kisser" to say "brown nose" instead. Nobody wants their kids going around saying "ass kisser", but what the censors did there is take the unexpectedness out of the joke, and that was what made it funny. The guy Gene Wilder said it to threatens to punch him out....for calling him a brown nose? No, but for calling him an "ass kisser", it kinda makes sense. That's all I'm saying. We don't need it every other word, but let's not screw with the writer's point of view either. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on September 4, 2012, 5:07 pm

Parker, The irony of it all is that if you'd been around see the septuagenarian nudist when she was in her salad days, unless you were married to her,you wouldn't have been able to see her in anything less than long sleeves and knee-length skirts because she'd have been in her 20's and 30's under Franco who did his best to keep the Continental 'decadence' from getting a toehold in Spain going so far as to have police arrest and fine those who wore 'immodest' bathing suits.

@Robert. Pooping and peeing have a certain hygeine element to them, being buck naked does not. The way we see nudity (at least in most of the English speaking world) - or are made to see nudity is sexual, where it is not. It being natural is a reason to not be so uptight and make people feel more comfortable. Basically, it makes the human body tabboo - do you want to not be able to look at yourself as such?

The major problem with baseball is marketing. The NBA and NFL are so popular because they both have excellent marketing. The NBA markets superstars, the NFL markets the league itself, making every game a big event. MLB is super popular in the Northeast, Chicago and California, but it struggles in some other areas of the country because we don't hear about the stars or the league or really anything. I must say, though, that this baseball season is one of the best in recent memory.

Superman - Random Topics
George Reeves death. He was "the people's Superman". Christopher Reeve was too much of a sex symbol (before the accident of course), and all those drooling women ended up spawning some really cheesy sequels that included an affair with Lois Lane. The first movie was pretty good. You'd never see George Reeves and Lois in the sack. Some might say it's because TV censors wouldn't allow it. I say it wouldn't have occurred to them to portray a comic book character in that light with kids also watching the show. To me Superman was about saving people who needed help and who couldn't help themselves, either situationally or because they were somehow defenseless. He was not about "scoring". Add to this the silly "Lois & Clark" and "Smallville" TV series' and any post-George Reeves Superman is "all too human" for me. His renunciation of his American citizen ship is icing on the cake. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on August 28, 2012, 5:08 pm

.....and apart from the health issues, tanning will do ABSOLUTELY NOTHING to improve your appearance (it neither makes the ugly beautiful, nor the beautiful more beautiful) and I personally find it immensely boring and uncomfortable to lie still in searing heat to attain what will not improve my appearance. Even without skin cancer I never got the "appeal" of sun tanning. To me that always meant "stop the fun you're having in the water" to get real bored lying in the sun and heat. Sorry, sucked from the start. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on August 28, 2012, 4:55 pm

Blu-Ray - Random Topics
Bah. It took us forever to finally dump VHS for DVD; we didn't go for DVD right away because of the huge collection of VHS tapes we amassed over the years. We couldn't abandon them, we worked too hard to just dump them for some format that would/could go obsolete in less than a decade. Then came the day we were literally forced to wean ourselves off of VHS: new movies were released on DVD only. VHS recording ran up to 6 hours, you could record over shows or movies you no longer cared about or needed, and blank tapes were relatively inexpensive. But there were cons: to get to certain parts, you had to Fast Forward until you reached it. And if the tape was at the very beginning and the part was near the end, you'd be waiting several minutes to hit Play. You had to rewind the tape, otherwise if you left it in the middle, the tape would warp right where you left it. Tapes could get eaten by the VHS player. Then, at last, we gave DVDs a try: You didn't need to fast forward to reach the end; all you had to do was go through a menu to pick the part you wanted to see. Fast Forward now had more speeds, and in the time it took to Fast Forward a tape, you could Fast Forward the same DVD about 8-16 times in a row. It took about a year for movies to go from silver screen to tapes on store shelves, but it takes DVD mere months. They had higher storage capabilities and had features not seen in VHS: Commentary mode, animatics (for animated movies), and more. Discs are way smaller than tapes, and you could fit many discs in storage case. But, there were cons: DVD players were pricey back then and DVDs with recording capabilities were expensive. Nowadays, the prices have gone down, so the cons are all but eliminated. And so, we rebuilt our VHS collection on DVD. Now, enter Blu-Ray. It's the advent of DVD all over again, this time repackaged with more memory, and you need a whole new player in order to use it. Nobody I know has one. Plus, with Hulu, downloadable movies, and other competition, there's not really much of a reason to own one. -- Submitted By: () on August 28, 2012, 3:24 pm

"How often do you park in a free lot finding money lying around?" LOL, that's hilarious! And a succinct way to put it. I never even experienced hitting the jackpot on Free Parking until I played it with students and teachers (the latter making that rule). This made the game last forever as someone else was bound to hit the jackpot by the time the last winner's funds were running low. When I was younger, I thought you went to jail by landing on the Jail space, until my parents said, "No, you're just visiting. See?" Then showed me the Just Visiting segment of the square.

Parker Tillman, I think you've brought up an interesting argument in favor of it and I believe there are certain circumstances in which its acceptable. However; I'm curious if you believe there are any conditions you consider profanity unacceptable/ unnecessary or if there are any individuals worthy of respect by sparing them said profanity[e.g. clergy, employers, elderly, children, female relatives,etc.]. Here's a question for you: The other day I accidentally overheard some co-ed saying to someone 'it's easy as [s-word]'.

I think that took it from being an "occasional thing" one might catch at some out of the way movie theater somewhere, to being a mainstream thing one could view on a daily basis. That might explain why the term "sex addict" was non-existent in the 1970s, and why so many claim to have that "addiction" now. Just like with drugs, who made the initial decision to have porn at his/her disposal 24/7? There you go. I look at porn quite often. I'm a product of this environment. That doesn't mean I'm going to be dishonest about it, or that I expect it to change. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on August 27, 2012, 4:18 pm

Political Correctness - Random Topics
Political Correctness sucked from Day 1. It is simply a method of "creative censorship". However, instead of outlawing free speech (which would, after all, be politically incorrect), they simply make certain speech so shameful that nobody would want to use it. For while they aren't threatened with arrest, they are threatened with job loss and public ridicule. That's why I LMAO when people get all uptight about Romney calling the London's handling of the Olympics "disconcerting". These days that's considered a gaffe, lol. Political correctness gone berzerk, which was the only path it could ever take. Sucked from Day 1 because it's a quasi-limit to free speech, and it's CLEVER about abridging that right. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on August 27, 2012, 4:10 pm

Philadelphia Eagles - Random Topics
Hated them ever since the Miracle at The Meadowlands and a year before that. What's sad is this team's fans are still stuck in 1978 and that event since they have no rings. Never mind that NYG's first playoff victory in 18 years was in the 1981 wild card game against Philly. They can remember a 1978 regular season win, but not a 1981 playoff loss. Whatever. I will say one thing for their fans though. They know crappy music when they hear it. One playoff game early in the 2000s they had Ja Rule and Ashanti playing the halftime show. They were awful and the crowd booed them lustily. Black Eyed Peas at the SB were Gershwin by comparison. Can't take that away from Philly fans. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on August 27, 2012, 4:04 pm

Pac-Man (video game series) - Random Topics
I think it boned when Ms. Pac-Man appeared on the scene. Slowly but surely, the original Pac-Man started disappearing. Well into the new century I'd see Ms. Pac-Man around in a few places, while the original was long gone. I now have the original as a TV plug and play with Galaxian and a few others. Honorable mention to top 40 hit this game inspired in the early-80s "Pac-Man Fever" by Buckner & Garcia. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on August 27, 2012, 3:51 pm

Ovaltine - Random Topics
It boned when an episode of "Underdog" had Simon Barsinister plotting to capture "all the Ovaltine in the world (ahahahahahahaha!!)" You just KNOW this was some shameless product placement tactic by their then-sponsor. Sad. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on August 27, 2012, 3:49 pm

Olive Garden - Random Topics
I live in NY and I'm also Italian-American. I go to "authentic" Italian restaurants all the time. That said, I'm not an "Olive Garden snob". I've eaten at them when out of state, and it's OK I guess. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on August 27, 2012, 3:45 pm

Old Navy - Random Topics
All their ads are weird and creepy. Even the ones with Morgan Fairchild gnawed on my nerve endings. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on August 27, 2012, 3:42 pm

Oakland Raiders - Random Topics
Never boned. Loved the teams that won with Jim Plunkett at QB. Didn't like the move to LA. Finally got used to calling them LA when they moved back. Then continued to call them LA for several more years. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on August 27, 2012, 3:37 pm

Nudity - Random Topics
Yeah, I know. Get over it. The human body is beautiful, blah blah blah. Sure we all feel that way as long as it's a 20 year old beautiful girl parading around au natural. What put that into perspective for me was visiting Spain. Upon leaving a restaurant near the beach, on my way to the car, I spied what must have been a 75 year old fat woman sunning herself without a stitch of clothing. Gave new meaning to the phrase "discretion is the better part of valor", not to mention certain other choice words it brought to mind that I was too polite to use as a tourist visiting a foreign country. Trust me, nudity has a downside. It may seem like "Playboy Channel Fields Forever", but it ain't a lot of the time. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on August 27, 2012, 3:35 pm

NFL Pro Bowl - Random Topics
It boned for good when it was moved from after the SB, to before the SB, which effectively exempted SB players from appearing in the game. So if your team is in the SB you can't be a pro bowler now? Why not just leave it where it was and let EVERYONE play? Seems the NFL did some actual work here to make this an even more inferior game than it was before. Nice job. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on August 27, 2012, 3:28 pm

New York Yankees - Random Topics
The Yankees couldn't please everyone if they tried. On one side, you have the people gloating over them not having won the series in however many years. On the other, you have the people whining that they win EVERY YEAR because they over pay. Of course, both can't be the case, so what we have is two groups of whiners who don't like the Yankees, but for opposing reasons that can't both be correct. In fact, we won in 2000, then again in 2009 I believe. If results are what matters, clearly the Yankees aren't buying the WS year after year. Take a lesson from Booker T. Washington and worry about making your own teams better rather than blaming mine for your inability to do so. If you had the money to spend, you'd be spending it, maybe not as much as the Yankees, but a helluva lot more than the Pirates, who I doubt you'd pity if you won. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on August 27, 2012, 3:24 pm

New York State - Random Topics
Yep, Clinton is when we truly gave the fish a gutting. I still can't think of one thing she did for New Yorkers as Senator and she was there 8 years. Oh, I'm sorry, she did do one thing....she quit to be kicked upstairs into the Obama Administration where she actually did a passable job, just not here. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on August 27, 2012, 3:17 pm

New York Knicks - Random Topics
Why even call it a "Patrick Ewing trade"? That implies we actually got something for him. Can anyone name a single player who was worth a plug nickel that we got in that "trade"? It was more an "Exit...Stage Left" deal, but that could also apply to Jeff Van Gundy, Larry Johnson, Alan Houston, GM Ernie Grunfeld, President Dave Checketts, etc. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on August 27, 2012, 3:15 pm

National Football League (NFL) - Random Topics
You are all now witnessing what will eventually be known as "the beginning of the end" of the NFL. I predict football will either be abolished or greatly toned down in my lifetime. I see the next generation being indoctrinated already. I never thought we'd see the day that grown men would say stuff like "I wouldn't want my son playing football". I don't think a father existed when I was a teenager that would say that. Now I hear potential, just-married, dads saying this before they even have any spawn to worry about. Makes me sad for the emasculated generation of men now coming of age. Also, has anyone noticed that now whenever one of these retirees commits suicide it's automatically the ill effects from a previous concussion? They don't even wait for it to be determined anymore by a coroner. They just automatically assume the guy didn't have some other motive for doing it. "Group think" in the US is out of control. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on August 27, 2012, 3:01 pm

NASA - Random Topics
I think NASA boned for me when I realized they were never going to come remotely close to achieving what I saw depicted on many of my favorite Sci Fi series of the 1960s. Lost In Space was supposed to take place in 1999. Did people actually believe such space travel would be possible by 1999? Seems that mindset had to come from somewhere. History has shown we were way off on that one. Truth is, space travel beyond the moon is largely impractical, and our knowledge of space beyond the moon is progressing at a snail's pace. Even these theories they come out with don't hold water, like the "other Earth" they discovered. How does anyone check the validity of a claim made about a planet umpteen light years away? Don't even get me started on the Mars rovers. What is "Curiosity" supposed to accomplish that the last umpteen rovers didn't again? Finding water that doesn't even appear to exist where their polar icecaps would be? Sure! As for the "technology" this brought about, there's too many unknowns there. For one thing, there's no guarantees that other types of "demand" wouldn't have spawned these things anyway. For another, what affect has all that additional automation had on jobs and the economy? Are we so sure it was a good thing in light of all the downsizing and outsourcing we read about? Are we so sure it's been worth this ridiculous price tag, that we're still afraid to send even lab rats to Mars? Phooey on NASA and the space program. When "The Jetsons" have more creative ideas than you do, man you're a failure! -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on August 27, 2012, 2:54 pm

Napster - Random Topics
Boned when they lost the case. The party was over. On the other hand, they made a super-corrupt industry that was inundated with gangsta-rappers marketing obscenity to children, quake in their boots, and gave rise to other file sharing services with offshore servers that are not subject to US copyright laws. The industry never recovered, but I'm not sure they deserve to after the way they've been ruining music since the mid-1980s. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on August 27, 2012, 11:59 am

MTV: Music Television - Random Topics
MTV wouldnt show MJ's videos originally, because they felt his style didn't fit the "rock" genre which they mainly catered to at the time. They did show black artist, such as Hendrix, The Busboys and John Butcher Axis, as those were considered "rock". MJ didn't want to accept this, so he played the race card. MTV relented and proceeded to increasingly suck throughout the remainder of its life. I stopped watching altogether in the mid-1980s, but I stopped enjoying it around 1984. I also credit MTV with being the main catalyst behind the epidemic of "Swelled Head Syndrome" that pretty much sabotaged popular music in the mid-1980s. Funny thing is their ratings declined during this period, but instead of seeing the truth for what it was (they alienated their original audience by showing Michael Jackson, Billy Ocean and other lame Top-40 crap videos), they decided to launch "programming" like "Remote Control"....another fish boning moment. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on August 27, 2012, 11:55 am

Monopoly - Random Topics
I'm something of a traditionalist with Monopoly. I'm not bothered by the alternate versions so much as I am by people who like to play by their own implausible rules to speed up the game. Sorry, but there's nothing about landing on "Free Parking" being a metaphor for a payout. How often do you park in a free lot finding money lying around? Implausible? You bet it is, and that's why it's not in the rules. Then it seems almost nobody is aware of the rule that when you opt not to buy a property, the remaining players, and yourself, get to bid on it before the next player's turn. Of course, everyone can opt out if they want, but how often would they choose that if they knew they had a choice? If you really want to speed the game up, follow that real rule and put the fake Free Parking payout silliness to rest. It's about winning by getting a real estate monopoly, not by falling ass backwards into a free parking space. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on August 27, 2012, 11:47 am

Moderators (Internet Forum) - Random Topics
Day 1. If the owners of a site are offended by certain words, they can implement software that censors those words, but I'm not a fan of censoring thought even when it's objectionable. Sometimes people can be patently offensive without ever uttering a single obscenity or racial slur, so it's all in the eye of the beholder anyway. Never been on a strictly moderated forum that was worth sticking around. Those are usually humorless, nancy-girl forums where nanny-statists reign supreme. I gotta be me, and not on someone else's terms. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on August 27, 2012, 11:41 am
