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
I think it boned when people who tasted actual freedom and should have known better began converting to this idiocy. Examples of this are musician Cat Stevens, and that idiot former club girl who married El-Sayid Nosair. Converting to Islam is an automatic bone. A woman who does it double-bones with no chance of boning back ('cause if she ever does they'll stone her to death....hence why she's an idiot for sigining up in the first place). I will say that I'm not a fan of any religion, but I'm especially not a fan of this one, and double especially not a fan of anyone dumb enough to convert to it. Just volunteer for slavery while you're at it, because there's little difference in terms of subserviance. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on August 27, 2012, 10:40 am

Internet, The - Random Topics
I think it boned when sites and companies began charging for content that had been free. We have seen this happen with MLB radio broadcasts and many news publications. It's almost impossible to find an old news story on the internet anymore without being asked to pay for it. Why should I pay for news that's 30 years old? Classmates is another example of a site that overplayed their hand with this. Even reverse phonebooks charge money to find out who's calling you now. In short, when it changed from an information superhighway to an information toll road, it boned. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on August 27, 2012, 10:34 am

It boned when rising baseball star Lyman Bostock was assassinated by a jealous lowlife named Leonard Smith in 1978 or 1979. Smith was found not guilty by reason of insanity, did a few months in a mental hospital and lived free for the rest of his life. May still be. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on August 27, 2012, 10:29 am

Independence Day (USA) - Random Topics
Boned when states (like NY, where I live) started banning fireworks because certain morons can't, or won't, learn how to use them responsibly. Then you have c-words like Mayor Bloomberg (remind me to put him up as a random topic if he's not there already, because I want to vote "sucked from the start"), using such laws as an excuse to take people's cars who try to bring them in from Pa. So it's a few extra dollars for me to rent a car once a year. BFD. Stick your fireworks ban / car thefts BloomTURD. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on August 27, 2012, 10:25 am

Hotels - Random Topics
Some people will not like this, but I think hotels in general boned when the more reasonably priced ones got taken over by foreign (and by "foreign" I mean literally off the boat yesterday) ownership who seem to have no standards regarding cleanliness, maintenance, and what qualfies as a "comfortable" bed. I try to always book in advance online, and read the reviews thoroughly, but even then I find it's hit or miss. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on August 27, 2012, 10:18 am

Blu-Ray - Random Topics
When it came out, it wasn't nearly as big a leap forward as DVD had been over VHS, and was caught in a format war with HD-DVD for a limited pool of early adopters, with the vast bulk of consumers taking a wait-and-see approach. By the time it was the clear winner, the global recession hit. As that ever-so-slowly eases up, digital downloading has become the new standard and there is simply no demand from consumers for a new physical format.

National Football League (NFL) - Random Topics
Not to sound heartless, because the impact of concussions is serious and nothing to laugh about, but why is this all of a sudden groundbreaking news? What do you expect will happen to your brain if it takes a continually pounding by 300 pound men over and over again? It doesn't take a rocket scientist to realize that football is a dangerous game. The whole thing makes me scratch my head. Why in 2012 is this now becoming such a hot button issue? I know because of the lawsuits, but if you expect to go play a game where you are hit hard by 300 pound athletic men for multiple years and come out unscathed, that doesn't take in-depth research to figure out the eventual consequences. It takes common sense from everybody. NFL needs to have a better plan for post-career care, players need to know the risks they are taking by playing for a long time in the NFL, and Gooddell/the owners need to know it makes no sense when you cry safety and then want to extend the season. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on August 23, 2012, 4:57 pm

I have a problem with "isms" in general and the equal rights controversy. Until there are no more special rights for women, blacks, gays, etc. and until there are no more special scholarships for them, no more special holidays for them, no more any of that, then we are not equal. Once we ALL have the same EQUAL rights, not SPECIAL rights, and once double standards are over, then we will achieve equal rights. There is major confusion between EQUAL and SPECIAL. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on August 23, 2012, 4:36 pm

Can I say they un-boned?

Cable TV - Random Topics
Yeah, we get our 'cable' through our phone & internet provider. No complaints in terms of service but we are definitely weighing our options with regard to 'cutting the cable' in 2013. The cost has really begun to outweigh the benefit in our opinion. With the current package we take, we currently get approximately 300 channels. Easily 20% of those are Spanish language channels. I have nothing against the language or Spanish speaking people in general- but I don't speak the language at all! Thus those channels are useless to me and frankly a waste of my money. another 25% of those are sports channels and- I don't really watch a lot of sports. Again- waste! On top of all that, we just don't watch a lot of television anymore, and when we do- it's very specific shows. I'm thinking we'll keep our internet and phone with our current provider and go with one or two of the On-Demand services (Netflix, Hulu, etc.) and just start buying seasons of our favorite shows on Blu-Ray. -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on August 14, 2012, 3:20 pm

Dragon's Lair Games - Random Topics
This game is essentially Simon in arcade form. Memorize the pattern, repeat it, and win. Yes, it was a quarter eating monster back in the 80s because it took multiple tries to figure out the pattern, so you'd die over and over and had to keep putting quarters in to get further. However, once you knew the pattern, you could easily beat the game with one quarter. I remember how it stood out in arcades because it looked just like a Disney cartoon. I also remember that the game had zero replay value after you beat it. In the golden era of arcades, this game looked like a gem ahead of its time, but today it's a laughably simplistic game. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on August 13, 2012, 10:22 am

Dragon's Lair Games - Random Topics
When Dragon's Lair came out in the mid-80s, I was in the peak of my video-game playing days, but I took a pass on it. Unless you had the sequences (and timing) of moves memorized down to the last detail, it was a total quarter eater, as others have said. Cool as the concept was, in practical terms the game only had entertainment value if you were the sort of videogamer who got their jollies from memorizing the Pac-Man patterns, OR if you were fortunate enough to be in the arcade when such a person was on the game. Again, the game was a cool idea, but because it was ahead of its time, the implementation was where the de-skeletonized ichthyoids lurked.

Multiculturalism - Random Topics
Like it or not, the United States IS a multicultural nation [yes, even in our region, DolFan] and I believe it's to every individual's benefit to know what makes other folks tick as much as possible. It's not that I think other cultures are all sweetness and light while mine is totally rotten to the core [or vice versa] but I believe trying to learn about other cultures and societies can help re understanding and understand beats ignorance any day. Even if one considers another individual an enemy or vice versa, it's better to know their background and MO than be ignorant of this. Learning other languages can be a key to and I wish I knew more than just English and being somewhat functional in Spanish because even the meanings of individual words can unlock so much of people's culture and history which can open quite a few doors. Music, art, ,cuisine, literature, history, etc. of one's own and others can inspire. I agree that following someone else's prescribed curriculum may not be one's best interest; hence I encourage anyone reading this who is interested to go to the nearest library and read the primary sources re all the above and it can't hurt to study the tenets of the world's major religions to help in one's quest. This isn't something that can happen in a single day or semester but may be a quest of a lifetime. For the record, I'm a proud Christian, native-born US citizen man but that doesn't mean I can't be inspired by learning about how others have lived in this world. -- Submitted By: () on August 12, 2012, 3:47 pm

Dragon's Lair Games - Random Topics
I was blown away by the look of this game when I first saw it at Chuck E. Cheese. This game was supposed to be the future of video games. There was a huge line that I had to wait in to play it. When I finally got my turn, some monster was coming at Dirk the Daring, so I moved the joystick. Nothing happened. I died. Then a giant bowling ball came at Dirk and I tried to get away. I died. Then another monster came at Dirk. I tried the "sword" button. I died for the final time. I was done with that stupid game. There was a Saturday morning cartoon of Dragon's Lair on at the time and whenever it was on, I'd bring out my Atari joystick and move it around and say to my brother, "Look, Dirk doesn't do what I tell him; it's just like playing the actual game!" -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on August 12, 2012, 12:50 pm

I was absolutely fascinated with these as a kid - and like Parker had too many quarters sucked into them in the early 80's then in the 90's I found a sequel DL2- at a mall in Erie, PA- and was like wtf, how did I never hear of this? To quote someone who coined it for the 1984 film adaptation of Dune- these three games- DL 1,2 and SPace Ace were all magnificent failures. Flawed - yes, very cool and unique in an era on limited technology- yes, and fun to actually see Disney style and quality animation on slightly more adult material- fights deaths, sexy girls in cheesecake situations made for a teen guy audience! I'm going to bone it for all my lost quarters, but unbone it for the fact that they were just- well, cool.

I'm sure a lot of people would vote Day 1, but at that time there was a good reason to have this system in place. Others might vote the election of 2000, and that has merit because the guy who won the popular vote lost the election. That's bad, but what's worse is when WE THE PEOPLE send an INCUMBENT PRESIDENT back by a quorum of the popular vote, and he still gets sent home after losing the electoral college. This happened when Grover Cleveland first ran for re-election against Benjamin Harrison. Either way, and electoral college running contra to the popular vote (Hayes / Tilden; Bush / Gore) is going to piss people off, but when a sitting President is re-elected by the people only to be smacked down by the electoral college, that's a serious kick in the teeth to the choice of the people. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on August 10, 2012, 2:00 pm

That's pretty much it. I've never had an inclination for racism so multiculturalism is having the same effect on me as the Truth.com ads are having on non-smokers.

My takes on Olympic games coverage: I really don't mind the tape delayed coverage as much as some people. I work during the day, so the only time for me to catch the games is at night. However, maybe they'd be better by airing the actual events during their regular time slots and using the four hours of primetime coverage as kind of a "best of the best" of the events of the day. Also, during this time, they should show ALL the events. I understand swimming and gymnastics have big followings, but I'd like to see some sort of coverage on the other events going on during the day as well. We live in 2012, so people getting upset that scores and results are revealed via Twitter, Google, etc. need to realize this is the new normal. I don't know what the answer is to not hear these updates. As for NBC, the mistakes of this channel continue to pile up. They are airing way too many commercials during their coverage. I'm guessing they have to make up for lost commercial revenue due to their struggling TV schedules, but it starts getting to be a little much. I have no idea why Ryan Seacrest was brought on board. He's not charming, he's not even a real journalist or sports reporter, just NBC's way of trying to make the Olympics fit into our trashy pop culture. Also, Andrea Kramer has been awful as a sideline reporter. She's fallen far since her football days. The games themselves are fun, but the coverage needs a lot of work. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on August 1, 2012, 5:12 pm

American Olympic coverage is pretty bad, especially with the tape delay so you may already know who wins by the time the event airs. I'm lucky to be in Canada because the coverage is so much better and is more or less live. -- Submitted By: (JayD) on August 1, 2012, 11:46 am

Olympic Games - Random Topics
I wouldn't mind the primetime tape delay if it wasn't for the fact that most of the games aren't aired live and the fact that it's the only way to watch the swimming and gymnastics events in the US. In addition, the opening ceremony would've been better if Meredith Viera and Matt Lauer didn't talk through most of it (and NBC editing out the 7/7 memorial segment felt insulting IMO). Finally, airing commercials in the middle of the soccer match (which is what NBC has been doing) is basically the worst thing a network can do while airing a soccer match. Te games themselves have been pretty good, but I'm not too thrilled with how NBC has been airing it. -- Submitted By: (cartooner) on August 1, 2012, 2:07 am

Since I work during the time the Games are actually happening, I'm somewhat grateful for the time delay and the late night repeat. Yeah, I've watched a few events. Never thought that white water rafting could be so tricky! LOL. As for the Opening Ceremony. Cool trick making it look [to a five-year-old] that the Queen had parachuted in from a helicopter but nice that she was willing to go along with it. Wonder what they were thinking in having that countryside deal turn into an ugly industrial wasteland with smokestacks? Depressing! Also, why didn't anyone in the Indian Delegation tip off security re that crasher? Did they all think that someone amongst them knew her? So far so good for 2012, though. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on July 31, 2012, 10:04 am

Cable TV - Random Topics
Travoltron, I've got you beat. My mom deliberately kept TV out of the house until I was almost 9 because of fears it would rot my brain, and this was the late 70s/early 80s when all you had to worry about from TV was excessive cheesiness. Then when I finally got one we never had cable either. I did get DirecTV in '01 and I can't believe you're shocked at how much reality TV has taken over, it's not as if satellite and cable get different channels. TBS, TNT, Cartoon network, USA, etc. are the same no matter what kind of TV package you have. (BTW I'm hoping the statute of limitations is up for when I and a couple of other people conspired to rig up an illegal cable hookup in my college dorm, this was in the 90s when TV was still cool for the most part.) -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on July 20, 2012, 5:34 am

I was so looking forward to getting this channel (it used to be great). About 50% of the shows are now different reality shows about hillbillies "catchin' critters". The idiotic haunted house one is on all the time, too. Sometimes they have Animal Cops reruns. That seems to be the entirety of their programming. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on July 18, 2012, 10:07 pm

Cable TV - Random Topics
My dad was a cheapskate and would never get us cable TV. I always vowed that when I grew up I would get it. I'm finally in a financially secure situation and got cable at last as of a week ago. And guess what, it's crap. So many channels, but all those channels are full of reality shows. And I have to pay extra for HD, when it's free over the antenna. When the low promotional price expires in 6 months, I'm probably going to cancel unless the programming improves. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on July 18, 2012, 9:57 pm

I've heard it said that one can assess the general health of an organization, culture, country, etc. by how well it tolerates dissent and/or humor at its own expense.

Blu-Ray - Random Topics
If you have an HD-TV, Blu-ray is essential. DVD was designed for old TVs and it shows. When everything works, Blu-ray is great. BUT, with all the DRM and copy protection on these things, they make them too cumbersome for those that aren't tech savvy. For example, I use a Sony PS3 and I bought a generic HDMI cable to connect it to my TV. It wouldn't work; it would only work once I bought a _Sony_ HDMI cable. Also, they change the type of copy protection every few months. So when you get a brand new Blu-ray it often will not work until you upgrade your player's firmware. So you either have to have your player connected to the internet or have the tech skills to flash the firmware by hand. People like my parents COULD NOT DO THIS. And some people buy players whose manufacturers go out of business and CAN'T upgrade. Of course, pirates have already figured out how to crack this copy protection and ironically they aren't affected at all. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on July 4, 2012, 5:57 pm
