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.

I'll admit to be wrong here, because I thought her star power had gone away completely. Her recent behavior is ridiculous, but obviously people are still interested in her. -- Submitted By: (John63btf) on November 14, 2013, 9:35 am

World Wrestling Entertainment - Random Topics
It's boned many times, but one of the biggest ones was when the McMahon family actually started wrestling in matches. Of course wrestling is fake, but the ability to suspend belief and get into the matches is what allowed many, including myself, to enjoy it. Now that Vince, son Shane and daughter(!!!) Stephanie are able to maybe not win but at least hold their own against Flair, Hogan, Undertaker, Kane, etc for an entire match just ruins the illusion for me. -- Submitted By: (John63btf) on November 14, 2013, 9:25 am

Hobbit, The - Movie Series
Robert, The Hobbit was first published in 1937 and was 317 long. Not a short story, never was, never will be, Jackson does go long on running times but the NOVEL was extremely complicated. The Rankin-Bass version was a dumbed down kid's story and never meant to be a definitive adaptation. -- Submitted By: (jmac9909) on November 14, 2013, 7:31 am

New York City - Random Topics
The best of the three major cities and the best city in the US (even today), however it was the 1960s that NYC boned the fish. It suffered terribly and never recovered. The answer...attract yuppies from out of town and displace the natives, homeless, and ethnic-Americans. The city may have turned around, but not in the right way. However, NYC still has some of its classic self remaining. At least isn't that much like Chicago (as nasty as it gets) or LA (runner up, but spoiled big time with flakes). New York's boroughs gave the world many legends and innovators too. History would be downright different without the existence of New York City. -- Submitted By: (ProfessorBone) on November 12, 2013, 9:07 pm

Los Angeles - Random Topics
I am going to say something different, albeit from a prejudiced perspective...the natives. Whether they have been there for years, or born/raised in LA itself, they act incredibly self-centered. LA really is a wasteland, like a few other folks said. The natives of this city are purely nuts. Maybe not all of them, but LA at one time was also known (in my own words) as the richest, whitest, WASP city in America. LA had a scary history once these people came from the east to settle. The city grew, but it was always "suburbs in search of a city." With the boom came doom. I really do not think LA ever had "glory/salad days." Then came the 70s, 80s, and 90s. There were race riots, more sprawl, more smog, and the superficial natives act as if their grass is greener than the rest of America. I will admit, when most of your days are "sunny and 70 something," I guess the natives have rhyme and reason to act like that. -- Submitted By: (ProfessorBone) on November 12, 2013, 9:01 pm

Barack Obama II - Celebrities
We thought Bush was awful...Obama inherited the title of worst US president (along with an already dismal economy) from the day he was nominated. I have never heard of a political leader like him in my life. There had been some awful ones before. It will be interesting to see how much more stupid legislation gets passed before his time is finally up. We are certainly no better off than we were four years ago. If the primaries were not fixed five years ago (so he could be nominated and elected), I do not think we would have had to experience the endless parade of nastiness he has forced upon the American people. Also, if I had to pick the one thing that irks me the most about Obama, it's that he apologizes for everything. WTF? This man is the king of PC is afraid to have fun doing anything (besides taking almost as much time off from the White House as Bush did, and bullying hard-working Americans). Clearly, Obamacare has proved to be a failure, straight out of the gate. A number of people, including liberals, are rallying to repeal the debacle. He just keeps on boning and boning. This would have never happened with Clinton (or even Bush). -- Submitted By: () on November 12, 2013, 8:26 pm

Lawrence Welk Show, The - TV Shows
There is a clip on You Tube where someone sings the alleged drug song, "One Toke Over the Line," on the show. Welk referred to is as a spiritual. And on a related note, there was another clip where Welk dresses up as a hippie for a joke. And for those wondering about the lack of black people on the show, there is another clip featuring a performance by country legend Charlie Pride. Maybe Welk wasn't as square as we think. Occasionally, he would feature songs made famous by Elvis and the Beatles. And he had a memorable appearance on Here's Lucy. -- Submitted By: (JayD) on November 11, 2013, 5:45 pm

Flash, The - TV Shows
This was a wonderful show. It's a shame that CBS seemed anxious to kill it from Day 1 by putting it in difficult time slots, like its initial home opposite The Cosby Show and The Simpsons. And when that didn't work as well as they hoped, it was moved around so much that it became almost impossible to find! John Wesley Shipp made a very engaging Barry Allen/Flash. It's telling that over two decades later, the character's personality was revamped to be more like him. -- Submitted By: (Hateaol) on November 11, 2013, 5:07 pm

Birdman and the Galaxy Trio - TV Shows
When you watch this and other shows of the 60's, you really need to do them in the appropriate frame of mind. For example, to a present day viewer, in the notorious "Ant Ape" episode, it's hilarious when Birdman looks at a giant Ant Ape-shaped hole in the side of a building and then wonders if the huge monster walking away from the wreckage is responsible! But I remember these very fondly. Incidentally, apparently the writers did devise a detailed history for Birdman, originally a secret agent named Ray Randall, but little of it ever appeared on screen. I remember it from an article in TV Guide! -- Submitted By: (Hateaol) on November 11, 2013, 4:37 pm

Full House - TV Shows
We have to remember that ABC was at its very height (and #1 at times) during this show's run (back and forth with NBC, depending on the day of the week). ABC was also transitioning during the time as well. Full House defines this era perfectly. Sure, it was saccharine, sappy, and surreal, but not so bad. That was the trend of that period. I would still say boned day one. If some of the writing could have been changed during the father-child talk moments, it would different. I am appalled that instead of a severe punishment, the kids got by with a hug and little to no being yelled at. You didn't see that on The Cosby Show, did you? At least the Huxtables got punished when they did something wrong. Both were part of the family-friendly sitcom period. I think Full House may have predicted ABC's future with Disney as well when you think about it. I think the sappiness and preaching are the two, main problems. -- Submitted By: (ProfessorBone) on November 10, 2013, 6:55 pm

Hobbit, The - Movie Series
Jmac9909: I was referring to The Hobbit...NOT the Lord of the Rings sequels. Rankin-Bass managed to successfully make ONE movie out of the Hobbit story. Peter Jackson's movie was over 2 1/2 hours long, and Bilbo didn't even met Smaug yet. I've actually seen the book: "The Hobbit: There and back again" is a short novel, of only 310 pages. I always "crack a book" or "at least Google" before I criticize anything. -- Submitted By: () on November 9, 2013, 9:07 pm

Three Stooges Short Films - Movie Series
Each third stooge brought something unique and of their own to the act. We always hear about individuality, so why should be any put downs of Shemp or Joe Besser? Shemp revived the act beautifully, but I fully agree that the four, fake Shemp shorts were terrible. I hate watching them and they are shown more than not, which isn't right. Joe Besser was only added because there was still time left on Stooges' contract with Columbia. Also, it was downright difficult to find a replacement for Shemp and Curly. So, don't expect much for Besser shorts. TV at the time was the latest and greatest technology. The Besser shorts were made on a low budget, filmed sometimes in just one day (a few hours), and with recycled footage dating back to the Curly years in some instances (eg. "Sappy Bullfighters" final, released short). Not surprisingly, the final years (production and release of the Besser shorts- 1957 to 1959) were the beginning of the end for the Stooges. The shorts department literally shut down after "Flying Saucer Daffy" was shot. Besser's wife was ailing. Harry Cohn, long time president of Columbia died in February (correct me if I'm wrong) of 1958. Not surprisingly, everything after that with Joe DeRita just wasn't as funny or the same. I could not even watch more than a few minutes of any full length movies made after 1959. The TV revival, if I am not mistaken, probably kept the Stooges going until the end of the next decade, when Larry suffered that stroke. Honestly, there were a few of the Curly shorts that I do not like, such as Rythym and Weep. Not all of the Curly shorts were comedy gold, but it looks like the vast majority like Curly the most. I want to add that 1946 was not a good year for the act. There were a few, weak shorts made before that, but much of the year consisted of bombs and flops. When you watch most of the shorts made and released that year (with Curly), you knew Curly's days were numbered with the act. Again, Shemp's availability and interest upon returning to the act gave the Stooges a much needed boost. It helped into the first half of the 1950s. Finally, in order to watch and appreciate Joe Besser, you have to learn how to make fun of his character. In a way, it encourages viewer reaction and participation. The shorts with Tiny were indeed terrible, especially when singing is involved. -- Submitted By: () on November 8, 2013, 8:12 pm

New Adventures of Old Christine, The - TV Shows
Hamish Linklatter was the only reason I ever watched this show! Julia, whom I usually like, was disappointing, her brother Matthew (Hamish) however was funny as hell and really hot!

Robert, the films are based on 4 novels, each well over 300 pages long, some are closer to 400: The Hobbit, and The Lord of the Rings Trilogy (Fellowship of the Ring, The Two Towers, and The Return of the King). Collectively they represent almost 1,500 pages. That's some short story! Crack a book before you criticize, or at least Google. Calling The Hobbit and its sequels a short story is like calling the Encyclopedia Britanica a pamphlet. -- Submitted By: (jmac9909) on November 7, 2013, 7:10 am

Doctor Who - TV Shows
As always on forums like this, there seems to be a lot of "Baker Bashing" (Colin). Please remember that he had very little influence in the direction the show was taking, and was - and continues to be - one of its most eloquent advocates. He did try to fight for quality scripts, and even a more sedate costume and was paid back with nasty on-screen jokes about his weight gain during his second season, followed by an unceremonious sacking. When allowed to be, he is a wonderful actor. Yes, The Twin Dilemma is a HORRIBLE story, but much is made right by that very moving moment where he calmly talks to the dying Azmael. And how can you not love his work opposite Patrick Troughton in The Two Doctors or Kate O'Mara in Mark of the Rani? Thankfully, Big Picture has given him the opportunity to shine in their Doctor Who audio dramas, which have a bittersweet quality to me because they show what we could have had, not just with Colin but also Peter Davison, Sylvester McCoy and Paul McGann. -- Submitted By: (Hateaol) on November 6, 2013, 8:23 pm

13 Ghosts of Scooby-Doo, The - TV Shows
I wouldn't say this show actually rocked - Daphne turned into a frumpy single mom with an annoying adopted kid she apparently bought from Indiana Jones, and well, Scrappy was still hanging around.

Those points do buy it some good will with me. -- Submitted By: (Hateaol) on November 6, 2013, 8:01 pm

Pinky, Elmyra &the Brain - TV Shows
I'm sure that the writers knew this was coming when they wrote the Pinky and the Brain episode "Pinky, The Brain and Larry", in which an extra character that doesn't belong was shoehorned into the show.

Burns and Allen Show, The - TV Shows
While there are plenty of opportunities to savor the brilliance of George Burns, there are comparatively few ways to enjoy his partner in all things, the great Gracie Allen. I was not overly familiar with her when I started watching Burns and Allen on Antenna TV, but I was quickly hooked. She's absolutely mesmerizing when she talks about her assorted relatives or applies her offbeat logic to simple household tasks. (She puts boiling water in the freezer so she'll have some ready whenever she needs it.) George may have brought home an Oscar, but in truth, this was about as equal a partnership as you're ever likely to see. -- Submitted By: (Hateaol) on November 6, 2013, 7:53 pm

Lawrence Welk Show, The - TV Shows
Too young to have been around to watch it in its prime. I took some peaks of this show a decade ago on my crappy PBS affiliate. That nasty goth, Bob Ralston (with an IQ of like 200, but a sick, twisted mind) was smug, nasty, and rude. What do expect from someone who brought classical music training and talent of his to the show? He always dressed and looked like a queer. I think Bob Ralston should be included in the reasons this show boned. I don't know my attitude would have changed if I were around to remember watching this show when it first aired. -- Submitted By: (ProfessorBone) on November 6, 2013, 7:32 pm

Wheel of Fortune - TV Shows
Wheel of Fortune boned around the same time as Jeopardy (1997-ish). First came the digital letter board (touch instead of turn). The game jumped further the next season with a largely, abbreviated theme song. The contestants chosen became more obnoxious too. It's safe to say that you have to be on happy pills in order to be a contestant on this show. Too much clapping is a legitimate reason, although that dates back to around 1990 at the earliest. Applause breaks during spins, after a successfully guessed letter, and so forth. What really boned for Wheel of Fortune were all the edits to the spins and gameplay, over a decade ago. Constant advertisements/promotions and longer commercial breaks took all the fun of watching it at home. I will also add too many "toss up" type puzzles as well. I remember a number episodes that had one or two that took such a long time to solve years ago. I don't think you get that today. -- Submitted By: (ProfessorBone) on November 6, 2013, 7:25 pm

Jeopardy! - TV Shows
I wish, I really wish Jeopardy! would have remained a program for people with the highest IQs. As a whole, it boned when Art Fleming left. The Fleming version never boned. It was much easier to watch and much more fun to enjoy. The Trebek version boned numerous times. The set, music, podiums, and presentation should have been left alone. Adding a clue crew made it nearly unwatchable. Dumbing down and adding "mindless humor" wasn't wise either. The Celebrity Tournaments became less enjoyable as well, especially the few that were at Radio City Music Hall. -- Submitted By: (ProfessorBone) on November 6, 2013, 7:15 pm

Son of the Beach - TV Shows
Still rocks when you put it into perspective. At first glance, the show comes off like a bubble-headed juvenile trash-TV comedy. Juvenile comedy did abound on the show, but what it was REALLY doing was parodying just about everything else on the air at the time -- most obviously, Baywatch and Survivor -- and it did that quite well. Son of the Beach did what it set out to do, and never really had a BTF moment, so by that standard it still rocks. In the interest of full disclosure, this show doesn't even make the top 100 list of DVD boxsets I'd want to buy, but I do have to give it due credit for achieving the goal it set for itself. -- Submitted By: (Mythigator) on November 4, 2013, 8:29 am

The first season was a good sci fi blast, despite Jessica's inept performance. Certainly she was nice to look at, but ultimately she could not carry the show. And when the ludicrous second season arrived, it was all fish bones from there. -- Submitted By: (Englebert) on November 3, 2013, 1:14 am

I recently found out that Apple is making a phone with a fingerprint scanner that recognizes your fingerprints. Call me paranoid, but I think that this will give more information to the NSA. -- Submitted By: (cartooner) on November 2, 2013, 12:42 am

Mad About You - TV Shows
Never watched one episode of this ever during its entire run...the only thing I ever enjoyed Paul Reiser in was ALIENS..thats it...but damn it was a memorable "character you love to hate" performance....I think most people when they see Paul Reiser think "Carter Burke" not "Buckman"..at least I do anyways. -- Submitted By: (richardparker) on November 1, 2013, 1:54 am

Love Boat - TV Shows
I always thought it funny that Gopher , for all intents and purposes, was supposed to be the "ladies man" type of character (although in goofy Jack Tripper type of way) whereas if the show was made today it would probably be Issac the bartender who would have LOTS more exposure to the lady passengers on the ship(and not just the black ones lol) ...I used to enjoy seeing episodes that featured a guest star who was on another show at the time ..like Dirk Beneidict from BSG or the guy that played "Jason" form "Jason Of Star Command"....will ALWAYS remember the Village People preforming on the show -- Submitted By: (richardparker) on November 1, 2013, 1:41 am

Hip hop music - Random Topics
@JayD: The ironic part about there being a remix is that, from the lyrics, "Royals," much like Macklemore's "Thrift Shop," criticizes the kind of luxurious lifestyles that pop stars and mainstream rappers tend to sing about. -- Submitted By: (cartooner) on November 1, 2013, 1:33 am

LOGAN'S RUN - TV Shows
This was a show I wanted to see BADLY as kid in 77 (especially after Star Wars..i was sci fi nuts)..but I never got to see a single episode out of the four or five that aired...apparently I didn't miss anything ....still got copy of the movie on VHS -- Submitted By: (richardparker) on November 1, 2013, 1:30 am

Life On Mars (U.S. version) - TV Shows
This show and "That 70's Show" both did a pretty decent job of re capturing not just the look but the "feel" of early to mid 70's imo...I enjoyed both shows...only wish LOM had a run like That 70's Show had....also really enjoyed LOM's use of music/song selection during the episodes.. using some songs that weren't usual big 70's hits that a lot tv shows and movie set in the 70's use all the time -- Submitted By: (richardparker) on October 31, 2013, 10:34 pm

Lawrence Welk Show, The - TV Shows
Just purely nostalgic for me now..actually I've been watching clips of the show on Youtube...and its quite funny to watch and listen when the house band would cover then current hit pop singles of the time like "Love Will Keep Us Together" or John Williams "Close Encounters Theme song (which was sold as 45 single back in the day) ..even more surreal was these tunes were danced to in that totally square ballroom style lol -- Submitted By: (richardparker) on October 31, 2013, 10:27 pm

Life and Times of Grizzly Adams, The - TV Shows
Once again another old 70's show that I remember most now for its theme song ..I was kid for all the 70's and first half of the 80's so a lot these shows though memorable have become fuzzy episode wise except for the odd episodes where something really dramatic, sad or scary happened. -- Submitted By: (richardparker) on October 31, 2013, 10:21 pm

Laverne & Shirley - TV Shows
the most memorable thing for me about this show is the theme song which , for me, has held up a lot better then the Happy Days theme song (maybe because the L&S theme is much more late 70'ish sounding) -- Submitted By: (richardparker) on October 31, 2013, 10:08 pm

I don't go for the ultra violent "games" that are out right now. Yet so many do. They wait in long lines to buy one of these "games." Note that the word games is in quotation marks. I really can't see them as being actual games, just ultra violent movies you control yourself. Is it me or do they seem to only advertise "games" that are rated M? -- Submitted By: (JayD) on October 30, 2013, 6:54 pm

Hip hop music - Random Topics
These days if you become a big recording star, you are pretty much obligated to collaborate with hip hoppers and rappers. For instance, Lordes has a big #1 hit with "Royals" and now I found out that awful rapper Rick Ross has remixed the song with him rapping on it. Why would you take a perfectly good song and ruin it like that? Looks like Rick Ross is taking a song that is already number one and putting his name on it as a featured artist giving him an instant #1 song. -- Submitted By: (JayD) on October 30, 2013, 6:41 pm

Monsters - TV Shows
This was a hit or miss show. Some shows were fantastically creepy, some were just weird, and some have me wondering "what the heck? Is that it?" Nevertheless, it was a show I loved to watch, along with Tales From the Darkside, and the new Twilight Zone. I think they all came out on Saturdays, and it was a highlight of my childhood. -- Submitted By: (Englebert) on October 30, 2013, 1:02 am

John Larroquette Show, The - TV Shows
It is true, this was a very original, dark show when it first came out. But like NBC loves to do, ruin it by trying to improve ratings. They did the same thing to the fantastic show The Naked Truth. Once it went to NBC it was gutted of it's originality and wicked undertone. Lame NBC, lame. -- Submitted By: (Englebert) on October 30, 2013, 12:57 am

America's Most Wanted - TV Shows
This is without a doubt one of the most important shows ever. What other TV show can claim the arrests of so many scum bags? It was great to watch this program and see if my neighbors would be featured. It made us paranoid, but aware of the criminals, plastered their faces on TV. This should still be running! Boo to Fox! -- Submitted By: (Englebert) on October 30, 2013, 12:52 am

Moonlighting - TV Shows
This started out as a very original, clever, and funny send up of PI shows. It introduced the world to Bruce, who was quite charming. Of course the relationship he had with Maddie soon was the driving force of the show. After they boned, this show boned. -- Submitted By: (Englebert) on October 30, 2013, 12:46 am

Dear John - TV Shows
I vaguely remember this show. It was supposed to be a vehicle for Judd but newcomer Jere ended up stealing the show. I think there was a wacky English lady that was also more memorable than Judd. Overall, a forgettable show, IMHO. -- Submitted By: (Englebert) on October 30, 2013, 12:29 am

Another World - TV Shows
This was my Mom's soap of choice...I recall some of plotlines and characters of the late 70's and early 80's quite well.."Mac Corey", "Mitch Blake",,"Ida" "Dennis" ..I never forget the "St.Croix" story line were this crazy woman tries to poison Mac but is saved by Rachel and Mitch Blake (Mitch gets stabbed in the process)..Mitch was also shot earlier in the series and survived that as well lol -- Submitted By: (richardparker) on October 30, 2013, 12:23 am

I recall the pilot episode had a different actor playing Templeton Peck (not Dirk Beneidict) the switch to Dirk MUCH better (the other guy wasn't bad as I remember) but Dirk was perfect for this role and this show imo..btw I always loved the nod to Battlestar Galactica in the episode were Hannibal was working at Universial Studios -- Submitted By: (richardparker) on October 30, 2013, 12:08 am

Donny and Marie (1976 TV series) - TV Shows
My most enduring memory of this show was the "Star Wars" special episode..it featured C3po and R2d2..Donny and Marie as "Luke and Leia" (makes sense I guess although nobody knew the characters were actually related yet in 1977 ) Redd Foxx as "Obi Wan", Kris Kristofferson as "Han Solo" and Paul Lynde as the main Imperial bad guy.(also Vader shows up but TOTALLY out of character and not voiced by James Earl Jones)..of course it was played as a "musical" ALL of it VERY bad , dancing numbers and all,however, being eight yrs old at the time and craving ANYTHING Star Wars..i LOVED it (probably the reason this is the ONLY episode of D&M that I actually remember at all over 30plus yrs later)...I believe its been uploaded on YouTube (transferred from original video tape so the quality is pretty bad) but still a blast for nostalgic reasons -- Submitted By: (richardparker) on October 30, 2013, 12:04 am

Youtube - Websites
Just like I've ranted about Google in the Google thing. YouTube feels they need to make changes that nobody asks for. It was fine the way it was before Google decided that "VIDEOS NEED ADS!" and "HOMEPAGE NEEDS TO BE EASIER TO ACCESS!" and it just became a trainwreck from there. The site is a garbled fuck up, plain and simple. The comments are always messed up, you don't see thumbs down anymore, you cannot remove annotations now except manually, and everything else listed. The hell, Google...and no, I don't want to use my REAL name for a site that requires a screen name to register with. Keep your other Google-related shit off of YouTube. -- Submitted By: (Infyrin) on October 29, 2013, 4:53 am

YouTube Poops - Random Topics
I never found any of them to be funny. Most of the ones I've stumbled upon though were the ones making fun of the CDI Zelda/Mario games. Just playing the clips over and over and slipping in other sounds in them. Not to mention play with the misconceptions of those games over and over as well as add various effects which fucked with your eyes. It just got tiring. I think it boned mainly when they focused on how hard to make you blind and deaf when watching their videos. -- Submitted By: (Infyrin) on October 29, 2013, 4:50 am

Avatar - Movie Series
I overall liked the first film, there are issues with it in terms of writing. However, I will wait until I see how the second and/or third turn out; much like Pirates of the Carribean. -- Submitted By: () on October 27, 2013, 7:17 pm

I never saw any of these films, but with the title of the second one - Are We Done Yet? - really? They already wrote the joke for the critics. Self-depreciation works only so much and so far. -- Submitted By: (johnnydough) on October 27, 2013, 7:13 pm

Mike Myers - Celebrities
I think that might be to do with the fact that if it is an animated film, people do not really see who is voicing the character, particularly if it is a sequel. Goldmember was not that bad, plus Shrek came out beforehand while Mike Myers still had somewhat of a career. Shrek was already popular and established so people saw the green ogre and flocked to the cinema because it was the chracter and not the voice actor. Animated films tend to be tentpole if they are from a major studio. That being said, Cat in the Hat was god-awful and I only saw bits and pieces. Myers can do better than that. -- Submitted By: (johnnydough) on October 27, 2013, 7:08 pm

Sarah Michelle Gellar - Celebrities
I am glad Sarah is back with The Crazy Ones. The other show she tried for CW was too dark and hard to get into and understand. She kind of faded away after 2005 till now. So this comeback attempt is great. I didn't think she was doing well in her movies. So she needed the time away. Buffy was all most people knew her from. But she started acting as a kid when she did commercials and small parts in shows. In 1989 she did a movie with Sally Kellerman. Then in 1993 she was part of All My Children but after three years in 1996 she bolted. She landed on Buffy The Vampire Slayer after that. By then she was 21 and 22. Now she is 36. -- Submitted By: (AlanVallazza) on October 25, 2013, 8:31 pm

Breaking Bad - TV Shows
The unbelievable set of coincidences that led to the season two cliffhanger almost derailed it for me. The fake newscasts and the media exposing a single person responsible for a disaster really pushed the envelope. Fortunately it wasn't over emphasized and served as an nearly believable example of the interconnected nature of lives and that our actions do matter. -- Submitted By: (neppie) on October 24, 2013, 7:46 am
