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.

The Cowboys are playing terribly right now because Wade Phillips doesn't instill discipline in his players, therefore they make stupid, easily avoidable mistakes.

Big Time Rush - TV Shows
Really, did Nickelodeon not learn from the epic failure that was the Naked Brothers Band that making poorly-directed TV shows about overrated boy bands does not make for high-quality programming? I suppose if there's anything to be said in BTR's defense, it's that they're a good deal less annoying than that Justin Bieber clone Nat Wolff and his annoying little brother. -- Submitted By: (ScottyB) on October 19, 2010, 8:06 pm

@VeritechRyan: I totally agree with you! I was at a friends house the other day and she was watching iCarly (a grown woman watching that...pshh) and I was offended by the garbage they have today!

Blockbusters - TV Shows
Blockbusters was one of many game shows I watched in my youth and still remember fondly. I watched it in reruns on GSN long ago and watched a family pair (mother & daughter) do a perfect 20-game run (win the match ($500 per game, 2 games to win, do the math) and win the $5,000 bonus round each time) for a grand total of $120,000. -- Submitted By: (BigAl) on October 19, 2010, 11:08 am

Mega Man (TV series) - TV Shows
I have mixed feelings about this - on one hand, I didn't like how Proto Man was a villain, or the fact they reused Cut Man and Guts Man (and just about every episode, there would be a bad pun from Cut Man as well). Another minus would be the bad puns used by other Robot Masters that made an appearance. The stories weren't bad, it's just that they should have been more faithful to the subject matter and cooled it with the puns. -- Submitted By: (BigAl) on October 19, 2010, 11:03 am

Gene Simmons Family Jewels - TV Shows
Gene Simmons is nothing but a giant blow-hard who thinks that just because his band has the most merchandise that it is the biggest band in the world.

Queer as Folk (US Version) - TV Shows
My favorite show of all time. Was too young when the show started in '00, but when I turned 13 (in '05 - just as the series ended) I bought season one at FYI and fell in love immediately. Though the end of the series is a bit of a let down and maybe even a little confusing (leaving many questions unanswered), the overall nastalgia that I have for it, and the great performances and beatiful moments, live forever in Showtime history. What a great, great show. -- Submitted By: (octogirlpretty) on October 18, 2010, 11:41 pm

the first anime series I ever got into was Robotech. Was hard to watch in michigan in the 80's, especially since there was some anti-japan feelings due to the auto industry being there. but it was a great show. some slip ups (the 2nd war is just so... shoe horned in there), but to take 3 series and melt them into a coherent story (more or less) is really impressive -- Submitted By: (VeritechRyan) on October 18, 2010, 11:05 pm

Regardless of whether he was born into Scientology or not, consumers need to carefully consider whether they want to spend their hard-earned cash on buying his products due to a high probability of a good portion of it going to Scientology.

High School - Random Topics
For me, high school was rather cliquish but in retrospect, I'm glad I went through it so I'd be able to deal with cliquishness in college and the workplace! Still, I think parents need to be extra careful NEVER to tell their kids that high school's the 'best years of their lives'- because more than one depressed kid's taken that literally and seen no point in living beyond that time. Needless and tragic. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on October 18, 2010, 8:06 pm

Leave It To Beaver - TV Shows
I know she was middle aged when the show started over 50 years ago and one couldn't expect her to live forever but I have to admit that it's been sad to learn the Barbara Billingsley 'June Cleaver' has passed away at 94. I can't imagine how the show could have been any good without her contributions and even though it wasn't meant to be funny, seeing her always looking so pristine despite doing major housework was funny! 94 was a good age to reach and I'm glad she's no longer suffering but I feel bad for her family and colleagues.

There was none of that in my day. I took the ACT once and never took the SAT, and nobody cared. Colleges were sending ME letters. Any idiot can go to college, they'll literally let anyone in as long as they can pay somehow. All this artificially created "competition" trying to scare kids into thinking they'll never be admitted to any college is a big, fat lie.

2000s - Random Topics
I have to disagree about this so-called "obesity epidemic". I don't see any more overly large people now than I did 15-20 years ago. Don't let the media brainwash you, being 5-10 pounds overweight is NOT "obese". My gripe (besides all the others I've listed that is) is that this was the decade of superfluous change for the sake of change that never actually made anything better and often made things worse, while utterly refusing to change anything that really needed it. It's insane. -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on October 18, 2010, 6:13 pm

2000s - Random Topics
I was a child of the 80s, teen of the 90s if it's relevant to my views and perspective. I think we also need to remember that our views are often based on our own personal nature, the people with which we grew up and how they influenced our views, where we grew up etc. Two people of the same age could easily have vastly different standards when it comes to when they feel they should have achieved various life type goals (e.g., moving out, getting married, having kids etc.) If the problem of too many people living at home into adulthood is indeed the 'kids' being lazy and uninspired, who is to blame? The kids for being that way or some other external factor making them way and/or allowing it to happen? Don't forget that the lousy job market also in some cases had people that we never able to move out because they could never find a good enough job to afford to move out. However, I think the 2000s also became an excuse decade. By that I mean it used to be that we'd see adversity as something to overcome. Now, people seem to use it as an excuse. As an example, how often have you heard of someone with some sort of mental issue use it as an excuse for bad behaviour? Now, I don't mean to offend with that example, I'm just using an example based on stuff I've witnessed. The staying at home example could be using a lack of income or sufficient income as an excuse rather then perhaps having to find housing that while perhaps is not what one wants, seeing it as having to suck it up and it being unpleasant perhaps being the price one pays to be independent or at least as incentive to improve. I think the end of the 80s saw the end of the playing outside era. Although, the expression "in general" indeed comes to mind. I still for example, see plenty of kids playing outside. However, the temptation to play video games or engage in Internet related activities literally all day is unfortunately there (for adults as well). To be honest, a lot of the problems we've been seeing go to extreme levels in the past decade started in the 90s. Agreed on the politics thing. I mean, I remember Regan and Bush Sr. I never had a problem with them. I don't remember it being until Bush Jr. and post 9/11 that suddenly, everyone was more interested in the parties then the candidates. As for the video games issue. Well, from various things I've read, the problem is that video games give often have a way of giving the players that same sort of satisfaction and accomplishment that comes from accomplishing real world/life goals. The problem is, with video games, that satisfaction is a mere illusion. Another issue with the 2000s is the lack of discipline. I see it not just with people and their kids but even with people and their dogs! An example being people that don't listen to leach laws and let the dogs do whatever they want to the point where the word no had become almost non-existent. I mention discipline after video games because I can't help but wonder if the prevalence of video games with teenage and kid characters that have all this freedom, power and authority (in some cases over entire worlds) and often answer to seemingly no one has given people to illusion that the kids and teens run the world and make the rules rather then the adults (who are often conveniently killed off or otherwise taken out). I wonder if that's also part of why people don't want to grow up. I think a lot these problems stem from a few main issues with the 2000s. The Internet and other technology has made life so convenient and in some cases, effort free to do a lot of stuff. When it comes to having to put some effort to accomplish something, we get all upset rather then sucking it up and saying 'no pain, no gain' or 'you get what you pay for' or some other inspiration type of quote. We've also become a society that seems afraid to put it's foot down and say enough is enough when it comes to almost anything that isn't acceptable (i.e., we're terrified to say NO). We're so afraid of offending someone (although this perhaps goes back to the PC obsession of the 90s) that we say nothing and put up with crap rather then saying even a simple 'now what just a minute here'. I don't mean offending some intentionally, I mean, protesting in a diplomatic way. The sad fact that we did it to ourselves and we're still doing it. The problem is that these problems have become the norm rather then problems to confront and overcome. It's sad and I'm not sure what we do about it. -- Submitted By: () on October 18, 2010, 5:52 pm

Pinky, Elmyra &the Brain - TV Shows
They took a champion racehorse, smashed its legs with a sledgehammer, then expected it to run even faster than ever. What were they thinking? Really, what were they thinking? Were they on drugs? If so, this is why drugs are--and should be--illegal. I remember a post about PE&tB on the old Scottish site which had a link to this page: http://www.platypuscomix.net/kidzone/fuzzyheads.html I don't remember who posted it, but whoever you are...thanks for the info! -- Submitted By: (Robert) on October 18, 2010, 5:43 pm

Cartoon Network - Random Topics
Octogirlpretty, way ahead of you. Haven't watched this train wreck in years. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on October 18, 2010, 5:29 pm

Oblongs, The - TV Shows
A great show. I used to watch it on Adult Swim years after it ended and just ran in syndication. Wish I knew about it sooner. -- Submitted By: (octogirlpretty) on October 18, 2010, 4:34 pm

Furby - Random Topics
I loved Furby as a kid. Hard to get, but super cute. Then they tried to duplicate it's success with the Shelby, which was also very cute, but the fad had passed by then. Furby was a positive moment in my childhood. -- Submitted By: (octogirlpretty) on October 18, 2010, 4:31 pm

2 Stupid Dogs - TV Shows
Fun, uneducational, and part of the era that was good cartoons. They just don't make 'em like they used to. -- Submitted By: (octogirlpretty) on October 18, 2010, 4:26 pm

X-Men - Movie Series
@Mythigator: I know about this because I had researched it after not seeing Nightcrawler in X3, and I understand and I suppose it would not have made it better to recast, but that doesn't mean that killing him off in a video game made much sense, imo. The whole thing just left a sour taste in my mouth. :P -- Submitted By: (octogirlpretty) on October 18, 2010, 4:22 pm

Beck - Music Groups
I think the fact that he has been victimized by the cult since birth is why the "Save Beck" signs have appeared. Despite his fame and wealth, this is truly someone to have pity on. -- Submitted By: (Chubby Rain) on October 18, 2010, 4:16 pm

Bowl Championship Series (BCS) - Random Topics
Oklahoma jumping Oregon and Boise State this weekend to the top of the rankings is utter horse crap. The BCS needs to go the way of the dodo bird. It's time for a playoff or something, even if it's just among the undefeated teams. If Obama could do that (he said he'd like one), he'd win back a teeny bit of respect from me. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on October 18, 2010, 4:15 pm

Rufus Wainwright - Music Groups
I love Rufus Wainwright. He may come off as pretentious, but I've met him irl and he was very kind and put on a great show. Have everything this guy but out and likely will continue to for the rest of my life. A great, under rated, talent. -- Submitted By: (octogirlpretty) on October 18, 2010, 4:15 pm

Beck - Music Groups
The difference between Beck and these other $cientology-humping celebs? Beck was BORN into it. I don't blame him, nor did I stop buying his albums. -- Submitted By: (octogirlpretty) on October 18, 2010, 4:10 pm

Gene Simmons - Celebrities
His "Family Jewels" show was terrible amd most obviously scripted. His son steals art and he himself is a conning buisness man. Yikes. -- Submitted By: (octogirlpretty) on October 18, 2010, 4:00 pm

Leah Remini - Celebrities
Stopped watching KoQ after the $cientology angle came out- sad. -- Submitted By: (Chubby Rain) on October 18, 2010, 3:59 pm

Beck - Music Groups
I've heard that folks have "Save BECK from $cientology" signs at his concerts- another victim of the cult- sad. -- Submitted By: (Chubby Rain) on October 18, 2010, 3:58 pm

Cartoon Network - Random Topics
Here an obvious, easy-to-follow solution for the cancer that is now Cartoon Network: STOP WATCHING IT. CN is trying to follow in the successful footsteps of "kid sitcoms" like Disney and Nickelodeon have done. You can't blame them, since it's what kids seem to like now-a-days, but compared to it's former glory, the one we had as kids in the '90s, "Cartoon" Network is horse sh*t. -- Submitted By: (octogirlpretty) on October 18, 2010, 3:47 pm

myspace.com - Websites
What has happened to Myspace will happen to Facebook and every site of the genre to come. It's naturally what happens to fads. -- Submitted By: (octogirlpretty) on October 18, 2010, 3:21 pm
