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
Like all religions, I have no problem with Islam (I work with a few people who are Muslims), its just the nut jobs who make the religion that looks bad, and its worse its prevalent in an area of the world that is still, in most places, fairly backward for the most part. I would bet you anything that had Islam developed in, and is prevalent in more advanced parts of the world, you wouldn't have most of the stuff going on that is associated with Islam -- Submitted By: (PYLrulz) on December 5, 2010, 2:49 pm

I've seen this show once in a while in the day time and it seems to be alway sandwiched between two other good shows like for example when The Simpsons are on twice a day and inbetween is this crap. I guess this is suppposed to be somebody's idea of humor, but it looks likea bunch of college students trying to imitate Saturday Night Live. The tabloids supply them with material and they probably think of themselves as some new brand of misunderstood comics. I swear I cannot stand to be in the same room when this is on so it means having to change the channel until the next epsiode of the Simpsons comes on. It's just like watching a roomful of teenagers trying to be funny while the day's current events' play in the background.

DolFan, I'd hate to live in a region in which I believed there was nothing of interest or benefit and I hope there are people and places near where you live which you like. No need to condemn the ENTIRE American South over Memphis. I mean, there's a lot to see besides Memphis. Not that Memphis is my fave city in the South or even Tennessee(that would be a tie between Nashville[with its Parthenon replica, Ryman Auditorium, etc.] and Chattanooga[ with Lookout Mountain + the Tow Truck Museum,etc.]). However; even Memphis has its charm if you know where to look. For instance, I think it's fascinating to think that Beale Street [home of the blues] and Sun Records [home of rockabilly and where Elvis got his start] are literally just one street removed! If that doesn't epitomize how unexpectedly connected folks with different backgrounds are in this neck of the woods, I don't know what does!

Carpenters, The - Music Groups
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Karen_Carpenter_Story The Karen Carpenter Story is a TV movie that aired on CBS on January 1, 1989. It was directed by Joseph Sargent. Richard Carpenter served as a producer for the film as well as the musical score. It was very popular in the ratings; it was the highest-rated two-hour TV movie of the year and the third highest rated such program on any network during the 1980s. Although the film's attempts to show the life of Karen Carpenter are usually accurate, there are a few minor dramatic factual inaccuracies. Factual inaccuracies Tom Burris, Karen's husband, didn't have the same name as stated in the film nor did they divorce. Karen was still married to Tom ( Bob ) and was due to sign the final divorce papers the day she died. Karen is shown reacting to a Billboard Magazine article that describes her as "chubby". No such article was ever written about Karen. However, there was an article that claimed Richard to be "chubby." A poster for the Carpenters album Made in America is shown on various tours throughout the 1970 - 1972 time frame in the film, while the album was not released until 1981. The film also gives the impression that Karen did not make a solo album in 1979. She did, but it was not released until 1996. As Karen is walking up the stairs in her parent's house in Downey, California to go to bed on Feb. 3, 1983, her mother, Agnes, says to Karen; I love you. This probably did not occur and was put in the movie to try and give it some kind of happy ending according to the book "Little Girl Blue, The Life of Karen Carpenter", a biography by Randy Schmidt (2010). Karen had apparently gone downstairs on the morning of Feb 4, 1983 to start the coffee machine and went upstairs to shower and get changed. Her parents heard the sliding door of Karen's walk in wardrobe closet, and knew that Karen was up. The mother, Agnes Carpenter went to call her on their extensive room to room phone, as their house was big. No answer so she went to the stairs, and called for Karen. No answer, so she went up, and found Karen lying on the floor of her closet. This is from Ray Coleman's biography on The Carpenters THE UNTOLD STORY. -- Submitted By: (lrbloom) on December 2, 2010, 5:44 pm

Dallas - TV Shows
Not to repeat myself but I remember watching the show more in reruns than whne it was an actual series. I always thought that the weekly series moved to slow and spent too much time on Sue Ellen whining about JR and not enough time on JR at the office. The business stuff was interesting but the soap opera crap was just pathetic. I started to wathc the show in syndication daily which meant the stories moved a little faster but still seemd sluggish. I noticed it took about 5 episodes to resolve any storyline no matter how pitiful it was. Then I bought the dvds online for less than 10.00 a piece in 2009 and watched and still found myself having to fast forward through Sue Ellen at the shrink's office and various other nonsense. The first real BTF moment though was when Ray Krebbs pulls the plug on his nephew Mickey Trotter in season 7. This seemed totally out of character for Ray, always the hero until that moment. Then to add insult to injury Ray is aquitted in what had to another BTF moment, Mickey (a likeable good humored character) is completey forgotten by everyone including Lucy after a tantrum is thrown at Ray and at Sue Ellen. After this, I thought the Ray Krebbs character was never the same. From then on I can't count the number of BTF moments on this show. Surely Dallas must deserve an award for most ridiculous storylines. -- Submitted By: (lrbloom) on December 2, 2010, 12:31 am

Bloom County - Random Topics
Bloom County, along with Calvin and Hobbes and the Far Side, represent the best comic strips of the Eighties. All three also represent creators who were smart enough to produce a remarkable body of work, and then quit while they were ahead. I miss all three, but I think that it's better to look back at a smaller body of stellar work, rather than a larger body of work that includes decline and stagnation. For those that might be interested, Bloom County is being reprinted in a comprehensive series of hardcover volumes. These include all of the strips (some not reprinted in previous collections), as well as historical notes and some interesting comments from Breathed himself. Three volumes have been issued so far, and two more are planned to cover the whole run of the strip. If you're a fan of Bloom County, get them -- you won't be disappointed. -- Submitted By: (Eugene) on December 1, 2010, 6:45 am

National Lampoon's Family Vacation - Movie Series
The sequel - each time the Griswolds are brought back the kids have aged while the parents stayed the same age, the kids are played by different actors and it's gets less funny than the time before. The Christmas Vacation is an exception in that the Griswolds stay home and have a family reunion. The Christmas Movie is slightly better in that it appears to be slightly less of a cookie cutter format. European Vacation and Vegas Vacaton used to be shown quite a lot on HBO and neither even comes close to the original. The Griswolds are recast on another wacky vacation trip to Europe and then later on to Las Vegas but nothing even remotely interesting happens in what are two disappointing sequels. Christmas Vacation, however is a pretty decent Christmas movie that ends happily and is at least in the spirit of an old fashioned family Christmas. Recommended and probably in bargain bins nationwide. -- Submitted By: (lrbloom) on December 1, 2010, 2:57 am

Sopranos, The - TV Shows
The only character on the Sopranos that I truly hated was Ralph Ciffaretto. I couldn't wait for Tony to whack this big mouth overbearing ass. I couldn't beleive that he didn't get it for beating up the stripper outside the club. From the beginning this guy was just an annoyance, always high as a kite and disrespectful to everyone - Georgio, Tracy the stripper, lousy jokes in the hospital when the guy gets hit with a golf club and then the remark about Ginny Sacks (RIP Denise Borino) the attitude towards Paulie, the romance with Janice and Rosalie Aprile at the same time, and then the topper of all was the race horse being torched. Finally Tony does what he should've done long ago. The other contibuting factor was the horse's owner or whatever detailing Ralph's rather bizarre masochistic seual practices. Talk about a character that just was just asking to be whacked. I actually was hoping Johnny Sacks might whack Ralph just to shut him up. On the upside, Janice seems to grow a brain and dumps Ralphie. Rosalie and Meadow could do better. On the downside, there's suddenly too much bs about Jan and Bobby as well as too much bs about AJ and Meadow. The way Karen was suddenly killed (we hardly knew ye) and the way Janice moves in felt contrived to me. The breakup between Tony and Carmela felt a little contrived also. She knew he was a mobster when they met and married so why the sudden surprise about him being unfaithful. I always wanted Dr Melfi to take advantage of her association with Tony Soprano and have the rapist "squashed like a cockroach". It's obvious that there is an attraction between these two and it would've cemented their bond all that much more. Jan's born again period seems contrived (such a good word) I could also live without the story about Noah and Meadow and Caitlin, the section eight roommate. Overall, I always enjoyed this show but nothing is so good it couldn't stand some improvement. -- Submitted By: (lrbloom) on November 30, 2010, 10:20 pm

This is to say that there's really nothing dangerous or rebellious here and that it's all just a pose - a matter of knowing what to say during an interview.

I liked this show at first because it didn't seem like a clone of other shows. It was sort of like one of those old shows from the 60's about some wacky characters in the south - you know not too bright but they mean well - and I liked the jokes about heavy metal bands - but the thrill soon wears thin. I could live without fart jokes and I hate to say it but most of the characters on this show are just plain dumb. Jason Lee was cool in "Almost Famous" but his character here is annoying as he and his brother and Joy are all such dimwits. The "Prison" epsiode and the one where I think it was Norma Crosby played "Crabman's" boss or something. Some of the episodes are actually kind of hard to follow and there are times when I wish the Earl would just go get a job. -- Submitted By: (lrbloom) on March 1, 2011, 8:33 pm

Nickelodeon - Random Topics
Nick's "network decay" if you want to call it that really started around the time that "Rugrats" was "uncancelled" around 1997 and the first movie came out (the first ever non-Disney animated movie to make over $100 million at the box office). This led to "Rugrats" being run to death every single day. Meanwhile, just about every other Nicktoon had to be Klasky Csupo product just like "Rugrats". "Rugrats" was pretty much the "SpongeBob" of the late 1990s-early 2000s in terms of how over-reliant Nick became of it. The homogonizing of Nick's programming is what also killed it. So instead of having a variety of programming like in the past (e.g. game shows, horror shows like "Are You Afraid of the Dark", sci-fi shows like "The Secret World of Alex Mack", "Space Cases" and "The Tomorrow People", and quirky, slice of life sitcoms like "The Adventures of Pete and Pete", sketch comedy/variety shows like "All That" and "You Can't Do That on Television"), we get cookie-cutter, "wishful fulfillment" tweencoms which seem to be no different than the kind that you can find on Disney Channel these days. I honestly believe that Nick has in recent years, become way too concerned with what Disney has been doing. The demise of SNICK in 2004 in favor of second day of TEENick was really the official beginning of the end of the "golden age" (or whatever remnants were left of it) from the '90s. I mean, Nick can air "iCarly" on Saturdays and it wouldn't make much of a difference as any other day. In other words, Nick has grown way, way too complacent with their scheduling/programming choices (to the point in which it has become tiresome). They've been relying too much on outside factors (like Disney or Saban with the Power Rangers, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Dreamworks, etc.) for inspiration or ideas as of late instead of coming up with their own stuff. They also treat a selected few of programs and their stars (e.g. Miranda Cosgrove and Victoria Justice most recently) most importantly (just like Disney) as a cash cow or potential cash cow to milk and exploit to the extreme. If a show like "The Troop" sticks out like a sore thumb in regards to what kind of genre it fits into, then it doesn't get as much publicity.promotion. -- Submitted By: (TMC1982) on November 30, 2010, 5:15 pm

Jefferson Starship - Music Groups
I don't wanna lose your love, toniiight... That's the only Outfield song I even remember, and it was STILL better than anything Jefferson "Starship" put out in the 80s. Or since then for that matter. -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on November 30, 2010, 4:27 pm

Yeah, kids, don't use your imagination, just conform to everything. Lump this one with Teddy Ruxpin as yet another killer of children's creativity. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on November 30, 2010, 1:10 pm

G.I. Joe: Renegades - TV Shows
I think one of the reasons cartoon designs look worse today than in the past is because it uses digital ink and paint as opposed to traditional ink and paint. Don't get me wrong, I've seen digital ink and paint done good, but for many who work in the cartoon business, it's looks like it's being used as a license to be lazy and not put effort in. Alas, there are a lot of people who don't know how to draw nowadays. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on November 30, 2010, 1:03 pm

Woodstock - Random Topics
Oh, the irony: Hippies were a counter-culture, rebelling against others to follow their own ideas, then wound up being sheep following the ideas of those who rebelled so they could follow their own ideas. The irony gets thicker: then came Woodstock 99, apparently celebrating what the original hippies were rebelling against. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on November 30, 2010, 1:00 pm

Jefferson Starship - Music Groups
I actually saw Starship live once back in the 80's. We only stayed long enough to do the songs 'Miracles' and we left right after 'Somebody to Love'. The ONLY reason we even bought tickets to see them in the first place was that The Outfield was opening for them (remember those guys?). -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on November 30, 2010, 12:52 pm

Netzero - Websites
When I first heard of Netzero about 1999 it was on the news. There was a segment about a free ISP (dialup). So I tried it and it worked it was free but it was the slowest ISP I had ever tried. They started charging for it and I dropped them. My main complaint was that no matter how many times I called them up to cancel - the automatic payment coming out of my checking account was forever overdrawing my account - the customer service people always played deaf and just continued to charge me the same thing anyway. I finally got hold of someone and after repeating myself about 15 times I was finally free of them. -- Submitted By: (lrbloom) on November 29, 2010, 11:48 pm

Moe, Larry, and Curly was the best. Shemp was just as good. But Joe?!? Geez, I know that the Stooges wanted to make their money due to very unfavorable studio deals in the past, but at least get in a guy who doesn't mind the slapstick, instead of being at total whimp -- Submitted By: (PYLrulz) on November 29, 2010, 6:25 pm

Get-Along Gang, The - TV Shows
The writer for Garfield and Friends despised this show and created The Buddy Bears characters as a parody. From wiki: "They are three talking bears who spew conformist propaganda in the form of song and dance (Oh, we're the Buddy Bears we always get along, if you ever disagree, it means that you are wrong,: etc.) The Buddy Bears are a satire of The Get Along Gang and other '80s cartoons that placed the importance of group harmony over individualism.

G.I. Joe: Renegades - TV Shows
I'm not really digging this show so far. It's turning out to be more like the A-Team than G.I. Joe. I also hate the character designs. I don't know why character designs these days look WORSE than those of the 1980s. Should the craft of TV animation be getting better? -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on November 29, 2010, 12:01 pm
