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.

Salman Rushdie deserves knighthood WAY ore than Elton John or Paul McCartney or however many other celebs have gotten it "just because". Remember, he wrote that book long before 9/11 when we all found out just how savage Muslim extremists can be. I heard that back in the day instead of lightly touching each shoulder with some ceremonial sword people receiving knighthood used to get whacked hard with a real sword.

I hate zombies so much; they are my "end of the world scenario" ultimate horror.

There are some Little Caesars around where I live and for $5 a pizza without ordering I can't complain.

Charlie & Co. - TV Shows
The late Flip Wilson (who'd been a hot comedian in the early 70's) and the legendary singer Gladys Knight may have been teamed for this because the pairing may have looked great on paper. However; these two had like zero chemistry or believability as married parents. I will say that Miss Knight actually seemed to take her job seriously as a comedic straight woman and was somewhat maternal to the teen+ kid cast members. I'm sorry Flip Wilson died; however,as far as I could see, he just seemed to walk through this part(the title role) as though he was mad he was no longer a top ranking comedian and was doing this to just pay the bills. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on November 16, 2010, 12:07 pm

I think knights these days would have an advantage getting good tables in restaurants and even airline seats and one might get more invites to swanky soirees (especially in the UK) from social climbers but, otherwise, I see very little use for it these days.

Wal-Mart - Random Topics
Unfortunately, that's a big part of the problem any more--too many people who 'don't have a problem with' a business that treats its workers exploitatively, violates their rights to form unions, engages in tactics deliberately intended to make their suppliers dependent on them or force them to go under, to name just a few of Wal-Mart's sins--we have 'no problem' with business practices that are ruining the working class in this country, and then we sit back and whine about the fact that our economy has gone to hell. A good economy depends on decent treatment of your workers, fair wages, and responsible corporate behavior all the way down the food chain. When America allowed this to stop being the case we were sunk. And now we cry about jobs going overseas, but we still don't get that our collective sense of 'not having a problem' with irresponsible/reprehensible corporate behaviors is a large component to what helped land us in the intractable mess we're in today. -- Submitted By: (elainewood) on November 16, 2010, 9:25 am

Fatal Attractions (Animal Planet) - TV Shows
Years ago, I used to work in a pet store. I love snakes and I think they're amazing creatures, but I frankly don't think they were meant to be owned as pets. I always hated to see one of them be sold to some halfwitted teen or guy with obvious virility issues (those were predominantly the two types who purchased them, based on my experience), because you knew damn well that about 97% of the time the idiot wasn't going to care for it properly, and it would soon die in captivity. Agreed, most people I've encountered who a have a yen for these types of 'exotic' pets very often seem to have some real issues going on with them. -- Submitted By: (elainewood) on November 16, 2010, 9:15 am

I don't understand why Avatar: the Last Airbender had to be a live-action movie when the series it was based on was a cartoon.

Politically Incorrect with Bill Maher - TV Shows
Yeah--Beck, O'Reilly, several of those guys were around back then, but the real media rampage they're now on hadn't started yet, and they weren't continually in your face the way they are now, they were more semi-local phenomena in those days. I hope their vogue passes away soon, but I'm not too hopeful about that. Maher, I think didn't really get his start on MADTV, but I think appearing on the show in his early days helped give him a lot of the exposure he used to get to where he is now. I miss MADTV too; especially early on, some of their stuff was hilarious, way better than what SNL had collapsed into being by that time. -- Submitted By: (elainewood) on November 16, 2010, 8:19 am

IMDB - Websites
The message boards used to be relatively decent when I first started using them--fairly responsibly moderated, some trolling, but nothing too off-the-chain. Now, the place is a sinkhole--people posting anti-Semitic and racist/misogynist tripe, loonies who open a dozen different accounts and use them to freely harass other users, etc, etc.; and there appears to be absolutely NO moderation--as opposed to the once minimal they had--going on over there any longer. Just had my account activity wiped for the second time, due to some troll trying to cause problems to my posts, and in the meantime the troll himself (who's well-known for holding multiple sock accounts and using them to have people knocked off the boards--he's had his account yanked multiple times himself, yet somehow invariably is allowed to reopen his accounts) remains on there, harassing others, and thriving himself. This seems to be SOP for the site these days. I'll still use them for information, but my own thoughts about it are that the message boards are no longer for people who want seriously to discuss media--they've been allowed to disintegrate into a childish waste of time. Wouldn't surprise me if the chat boards don't eventually end up being scrubbed altogether, due to all the garbage they're now flooded with.Very little loss if so, sad to say. -- Submitted By: (elainewood) on November 16, 2010, 8:07 am

Politically Incorrect with Bill Maher - TV Shows
MADTV, like its progenitor MAD Magazine, only parodies things that are deemed to have some worth, travoltron. That's why they don't bother with people such as Glenn Beck and his crowd; they're already beyond parody, being nothing but self-parodies from the get-go--and they're also too mediocre to create an effective parody from. Maher should be (and probably is) flattered by MAD's attentions to him. That they do so just shows he's got some true cultural heft--more so than any of the right wing nutjobbers, in spite of all their yelling for attention. -- Submitted By: (elainewood) on November 15, 2010, 10:13 am

Little Caesars - Random Topics
As for the quality of the pizza- meh. I've had worse. The thing I miss most about Little Ceasar's is the TV commercials. For a time Little Ceasar's had some of the funniest and most imaginative commercials on TV. My personal favorite was one I call "Uncle Nunzio." To give you some perspective to set up the ad- around the time "Uncle Nunzio" aired, there were a bunch of new spaghetti sauces that had come on the market and were blitzing the airwaves with these schmaltzy, 'a taste of the old-world' type ads hawking these new sauces complete with somewhat dreamy imagery of the Italian countryside and so on and so forth (I think you get my drift). Anyway, there was this commercial that starts out just like the aforementioned spaghetti sauce ads going on about somebody's old Uncle Nunzio who got up at the break of dawn, chose only the freshest ingredients and spent all day whipping up his old-world culinary masterpieces. Then they cut to the stereotypical Italian family all laughing and talking seated at tables in a beautiful lush garden with fountains and statue art reminiscent of Italy preparing to enjoy this meal. This portion of the commercial ends with the calm male voice-over saying "...and the entire family can agree on one thing- it's tastes AWFUL." Then suddenly everyone starts making faces as if they had just been told they'd just put dog poop in their mouths. A fly flies over one of the pots of food, makes a frantic buzzzing sound then drops dead. A kid dumps a plate of Uncle Nunzio's food into a fountain with a statue then the statue throws up. Then they make some suggestion that the family would've done better to go to Little Ceasar's Pizza and they throw up some splash screen with their latest deal. Funny Funny ad. I keep looking for it on YouTube, but it hasn't shown up there yet. -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on November 15, 2010, 9:37 am

Unless someone's career is doing biological/zoological research, there is no damn reason to own a Gaboon Viper! Seriously? I'm sorry for the families of these fatalities, but anyone who has a venomous snake or a snake who is big enough to wrap around you and kill you, is a very troubled individual. Love the episode of the guy who was bitten by one of his many venomous snakes and while he's in the hospital...the cops went to his house to secure the snakes and find all this bomb-making paraphenalia! When the guy wakes up from his snake-bite induced coma, the cops are like: "OK, you're going to jail!" At times like that, you can't help but wonder that maybe the snake who bit him was just practicing "natural selection". -- Submitted By: (Stephanie) on November 15, 2010, 7:51 am

While some people accuse something of bias just because they don't agree with it, sometimes the accusation of liberal bias is true. I did some comparisons on Wikipedia subjects and saw it for myself: how some liberal topics were given better treatment and some were labeled either "non-partisan" or lacked the "liberal" label, while the conservative side of those subjects were labeled "conservative" (i.e., ACLU vs ACRU; though it was fixed when I last checked). Now, Conservapedia, on the other hand, has a total conservative bias. Wikipedia at least TRIES to balance out (but is sometimes thwarted by tyrannical admins and users). -- Submitted By: (Robert) on November 14, 2010, 8:39 am

Conservapedia - Websites
An easy way to tell a bias is by the language used by a media outlet. Terms like "Anti-choice" and "martyr bombers" are clear indicators of a left-wing bias whereas a right-wing outlet would use terms like "anti-life" and "homicide bombers". A truly neutral media would say "pro/anti abortion" and "suicide bomber". -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on November 14, 2010, 12:32 am

Their horrified reaction to Milli Vanilli is still funny. Well, there have been a LOT of sucky music groups since the time they cancelled up until now, so B&BH would have plenty of material when it came to panning crappy music videos. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on November 12, 2010, 8:40 am

Lego - Random Topics
I hate to say it, but they boned in 1999 when they licensed Star Wars-themed lego sets. While I was initially excited to see these at first (I remember building Star Wars vehicles out of Legos as a kid), it opened up a Pandora's Box of licensed Lego hell and the quirky Lego themes of the 70s and 80s were largely replaced with Star Wars (now largely Prequel & Clone Wars), Batman, SpongeBob SquarePants, Harry Potter, Indiana Jones, Avatar: The Last Airbender, Spider-Man, Ben 10, Toy Story, and Thomas the Tank Engine. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on November 11, 2010, 10:55 pm

We had a local business owner here sell his entire stake of his business and he spent all the money on moving to worthless desert land and buying survival supplies. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on November 11, 2010, 9:55 pm

Don Bluth - Random Topics
Looking at his imdb entry I'd say it was Rock-A-Doodle. That was his first movie made in the '90s, so I'll have to vote for "Everything after the '80s". -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on November 11, 2010, 9:48 pm

Little Caesars - Random Topics
I don't know what happened to these guys. They used to be everywhere in the 90s. Then they all closed down. Recently one of them opened up again locally. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on November 11, 2010, 9:31 pm

Transformers (toy line) - Random Topics
The original G1 Transfomer toyline was at its best was at its best in its first couple of years when Hasbro was just bringing over various Japanese robot toys from Takara and paying Marvel Comics to write up personalities for them. Around 1986 (the time of the infamous movie) I guess Hasbro thought that they could design better than Takara and started doing their own designs from scratch. This is when Transformers stopped looking like real vehicles and such and went for a "futuristic" look. That was STRIKE ONE. Next they started focusing too much on gimmicks. Everything became a Headmaster, Pretender, or Micromaster (a ripoff of the popular Micro Machines line). No focus at all on making memorable characters. STRIKE TWO. STRIKE THREE was Action Masters in 1990. Transfomers that don't Transform. Can you believe some suit probably got seven figures to come up with that? And of course Hasbro sunk half that years toyline into that concept. (The other half of the toyline was Micromasters). Kids didn't buy them of course and Hasbro shrugged it off as "I guess kids don't like Transformers anymore" and canceled the G1 toyline in North America. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on November 11, 2010, 9:29 pm

Animorphs - TV Shows
Ugh, I remember when these guys had a tie-in with Transformers. Suddenly there were Animorphs Transformers toys. This was the first time had whored out the Transformers name to sell non-Transformers merchandise. The toys flopped hard and the show vanished. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on November 11, 2010, 9:12 pm

Evil Dead - Movie Series
One of the odd movie franchises that gets better with each sequel. And people have been wanting another one since 1992, but for some reason they won't make it. The original cut of Army of Darkness even set it up for a post-apocalyptic sequel. I wish they'd just do it before Bruce gets to too old (ala Crystal Skull). No remakes/reboots! -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on November 11, 2010, 9:06 pm

Well, Schneider has been with Nickelodeon since at least 1994 (I know he made All That and Kenan and Kel), although he definitely seems to have more control on the network now than he did back then. -- Submitted By: (cartooner) on November 11, 2010, 4:06 pm

Beavis and Butthead - TV Shows
Dol, Robert, from what I am reading, Mike Judge is in charge of it, so I'm sure it won't go down that road. Then again, John Kricfalusi was in charge of the Spike TV Ren and Stimpy, and we all saw how that went. On the censorship deal, as I said, since Beavis and Butthead went off the air, MTV has had shows like Jackass air, so I am pretty certain that MTV won't have a leg to stand on when it comes to Beavis and Butthead's antics. -- Submitted By: (PYLrulz) on November 11, 2010, 3:26 pm

Desperate Housewives - TV Shows
Every season: one housewife is having an affair, one housewife is having marriage problems, one housewife is having money issues, one housewife has a shocking secret, a new mysterious neighbor moves onto the street and causes trouble, mysterious neighbor is exposed, leaves the neighborhood, everyone's problems are solved until next season, when the roles are switched and another new neighbor moves in. Rinse, repeat. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on November 11, 2010, 1:59 pm

Twilight - Movie Series
This is the saddest excuse for a book I've ever had the mispleasure of reading. And the movie is no better. The characters are unbelievable and the story line is so dumb and predictable. And don't even get me started on the fact that there isn't a plot (until the last five minutes). Stephanie Meyer can't write and can't come up with an idea of her own. Kristen and Robert can't act. I'm pretty sure Edward is gay. There are so many reasons why I can't stand Twilight. I haven't even listed a fraction of them. -- Submitted By: (wallawalla) on November 11, 2010, 8:59 am

HeadOn - Random Topics
The ads are annoying in the extreme, no doubt. All the same, I've gotta give some props to these folks for having the sense of humor to poke fun at themselves in later ads: "Head On! I hate your commercials, but I love your product!" -- Submitted By: (Mythigator) on November 11, 2010, 8:50 am

Nickelodeon - Random Topics
I see it: Dan Schneider really is Nick's answer to Fox's Seth MacFarlane! He has more of an advantage, though: while Seth is limited to a 1 1/2 hour block only on Sundays, Dan could sweep the entire 24-hour schedule every day. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on November 11, 2010, 8:33 am

Beavis and Butthead - TV Shows
Bringing back a show that was cancelled before it could bone now gives it the opportunity to bone. Also, I think that if they saw Hannah Montana, they'd go, "Ahhhh! This sucks!" And since MTV no longer plays music videos, how is that going to work out with the new B&BH episodes? -- Submitted By: (Robert) on November 11, 2010, 8:18 am

Daylight Saving Time - Random Topics
ExplodingConsole, I noticed it gets dark at 5 pm too. Wasn't the purpose of this annoying ritual to SAVE extra daylight, not LOSE it? Further reason why DST needs to go. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on November 11, 2010, 8:08 am

Disney - Random Topics
The Disney channel no longer airs classic cartoons (or even classic movies!), but rather live-action shows aimed at teenagers. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on November 11, 2010, 8:05 am

Around the Horn - TV Shows
Max Kellerman was HORRIBLE. All I remember about this show was hearing him and Woody Paige scream at each other nonstop. Needless to say I stopped caring or watching after a couple of episodes and I only knew it was still on the air because it comes on right after Jim Rome and my DirecTV guide lists the shows so that it reads "Jim Rome Is Burning Around The Horn" which always gives me a chuckle. Then again I'm easily amused sometimes :-) -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on November 11, 2010, 12:03 am

Beavis and Butthead - TV Shows
First of all I remember the days ExplodingConsole was talking about, because I was a kid in the late 70s/early 80s, the last time in American history that there was a clear and definite line between kid stuff and adult stuff. Secondly, I actually don;t WANT new B&B episodes because I just know they'd be ruined like everything else old that's being brought back. I don't want to see the characters be reduced to celeb-worshipping drooling sheep who rave about how cool the latest Hannah Montana video is, and I'm pretty sure that's the direction it'll be headed. -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on November 10, 2010, 11:56 pm

I live about an hour away from Memphis, and you have no idea how thrilled I am that Memphis was just voted to have the fattest, dumbest, least athletic (seriously) and ugliest people out of 35 major cities in America by some magazine (Travel & Leisure I think). And the worst pizza too somehow. -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on November 10, 2010, 11:51 pm

Avril Lavigne - Celebrities
Her description at the top of the page says she's a "fashion designer and actress". Since when??? I smell a divorce to get attention like "X-tina" Aguilera just did. They did get married at the same time after all... -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on November 10, 2010, 11:48 pm
