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.

Robotech - TV Shows
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

Beck - Music Groups
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. RIP, Miss Billingsley. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on October 18, 2010, 7:57 pm

High School - Random Topics
I hated high school, and I'm not ashamed to admit it. And this was in the late 80s/early 90s, when it wasn't half as bad as today. And I don't get all this college admission stressing. 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. And how many high schoolers even make grades high enough to meet these made up standards anyway? -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on October 18, 2010, 6:27 pm

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

Kingbk, this is why I call it the Big12CS, because it sure is strange how it *always* favors Big 12 teams over all others, and it *always* favors Oklahoma over all other Big 12 teams.

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

Now I'm 18, and I have come to enjoy the CC jams once again. I know people say the music is dated, but I really find it to be fresh even in 2010. Maybe not the classiest of bands, but had great tunes (even Waking Up with the House on Fire was a good album.) Their 1986 come back album, From Luxury to Heartache, was nothing to call home about, but in '99, they had their reunion album (Don't Mind if I Do) which I found to be quite good. Perhaps it's just the nastalgia talking, but Culture Club is one of the greastest bands of all time for me. -- Submitted By: (octogirlpretty) on October 18, 2010, 12:08 pm

I like how someone added obese children as a reason. This whole "epidemic" is disgusting. How hard is it to eat right and exercise? When I was a child (back in the 80s-90s) I wanted to go outside and play with friends. Video games were like something you did on a rainy day or when you needed to rest after playing outside. Also, fast food was a treat we were lucky to get once a week, typically on the weekends. People are so freakin' brain dead and stupid now that we need Michelle Obama and the NFL to tell us to get off our butts. Just pathetic. Comes down to crappy parenting.

Over 150,000 fraud vote stacking votes were cleaned out of the system- total votes were close to 250,000. This was about 40% Dawn Lyn hate and about 60% liberal topic vote stacking.

Wizard of Oz, The - Movie Series
Remakes have been done. Anybody remember back in the late 70's? "The Wiz"? It was, essentially, a black interpretation of 'The Wizard of Oz'(instead of Dorothy being from rural Kansas, she was from an inner-city neighborhood, etc, etc). I saw it when it came out and I actually really enjoyed it. Also, I am absolutely certain that a remake (of sorts) was done, If I'm not mistaken, by some cable channel (SyFy seems to be coming to mind) just a few years back. Can't recall if it was a stand-alone movie or if it was a mini or short run series. The only way to describe it was that it was kind of an Alt-Rock (somewhat darker) version of the Wizard of Oz. I'll have to look that one up. But- all that being said- nothing will ever hold a candle to the original (whatever that means). :) -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on October 18, 2010, 7:57 am

My Three Sons - TV Shows
@JustLooking: It's been looked at already. There WAS a huge amount of anti-Dawn-Lyn vote-stacking going on, which is how the Dodie vote count got so high to start with. The loophole which allowed the stacking was plugged, and a number of the reasons with inflated vote counts were removed (on various other shows where Dawn Lyn appeared), but some traces still remain, such as the Dodie votes. I wasn't involved in the cleanup process, so I don't know what (if anything) can be done about the Dodie vote count.

@octogrlpretty: The "real-life" explanation for Nightcrawler not being in X3 was that the makeup process took hours, and Alan Cumming (who played Nightcrawler in X2) didn't care for the makeup. Given that Nightcrawler would only have gotten minimal screen time in X3, the crew didn't figure it was worth the trouble to put him in, so Nightcrawler was dropped from the third movie. -- Submitted By: (Mythigator) on October 18, 2010, 6:48 am

Teen Angel (1997 TV series) - TV Shows
I loved this show as a kid. It was a part of ABC's TGIF line up, which for me, was a staple in my childhood. I was just talking about this show to my sister...loved it. Wasn't on long enough to BTF. -- Submitted By: (octogirlpretty) on October 17, 2010, 10:57 pm

X-Men - Movie Series
It boned at The Last Stand. What a god-awful excuse for a X-men movie. SPOILER ALERT!: Jean and Scott die? What about the kids they are supposed to have? Mystique dies?! Why?! Rogue gives up her powers?! How depressing! And the most odd...WHAT HAPPENED TO NIGHTCRAWLER?! As I've been informed, a video game inbetween X2 and X3 shows that he died. Wha...WHAT?! Was I really supposed to play a video game to fill in the gaps of a movie sequel?! Who knew you had to play a game to make the next film make sense. This is not a movie to watch if you are a fan of the comics. Sure, this is "The Movie Universe", but it is painful to watch and an insult to fans. Saw it once the night it came to theaters; will never watch it again. -- Submitted By: (octogirlpretty) on October 17, 2010, 10:15 pm

Sarah Palin - Celebrities
JamesO, she is definitely the Paris Hilton of politics. She is famous for being a governor who didn't serve out her entire term, a woman who hunts, and has a daughter who got knocked up. Paris really isn't famous for anything relevant. Anyone else wish Bristol would go away as well? She sure doesn't make me feel sorry for her being a teen mom. -- Submitted By: (MCS) on October 17, 2010, 10:12 pm

2000s - Random Topics
Kingbk, Stephanie, and Exploding Console, the idea of the Boomerang Generation" moving back home with their parents is definitely a sign of the 2000s. While it is true that it can be very difficult to find a job due to being over or under qualified, it seems that there are too many people who are moving back in with their parents at the drop of a hat when there is any sort of a setback. I have been asked countless times if I was going to. You also see lots of people who live with their parents to save up and buy a hose which I think is pathetic. If you can't afford to buy a house until you are 40 so be it. That kind of behavior represents a dumbing down of society. I think in general video games have caused the worst dumbing down; although that started in the 90s in earnest. Kingbk, you mentioned the political extremists on both sides. That is also a sign of the 2000s. I don't remember the 90s being that bad (this was when I was in junior high/high school) and I don't remember even hearing the words liberal or conservative so much as I've heard since the 2000 election. It seems like ever since then you hear them all the time. I was too young in the 80s to remember much politics other than I knew Reagan and Bush were presidents at that time. -- Submitted By: (MCS) on October 17, 2010, 10:04 pm

2000s - Random Topics
ExplodingConsole, you're right. I'm not talking about people that are unemployed or lost their job against their own will. I have friends who are very hard workers who don't have a job now and had to move back home to get on their feet. That's okay and understandable. I'm talking about people who could grow up and should grow up and don't and how society today makes it seem okay. I'm all about following your dreams, but sitting on your butt playing video games in your parents basement day after day is NOT following your dreams. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on October 16, 2010, 10:56 am

2000s - Random Topics
Don't forget that the lousy job market of the 2000s has contributed to a lot of people that are unemployed not by choice. That and the poor job market also forced a lot of people into low paying jobs that do not pay enough to allow them to afford to pay rent. That has accounted for a lot of people living at home when they should be independent. However, I have a feeling that you mean something that goes beyond that. I'm getting the feeling that you're talking more about the idea of society in general just not wanting to grow up. The question is, what's causing this? Why are we as a society becoming so afraid to act our age? And I don't mean acting old. What's interesting/funny is that, I remember someone on the Scottish site (I forget the topic) using the example of the cereal commercials with the adults in the shadows saying they enjoy some kids cereals but have to be in the closet bout it. I seem to remember the poster blaming Tony the Tiger encouraging those adults to come out and admit it seems to be what started this whole refusing to grow up trend. -- Submitted By: (ExplodingConsole) on October 16, 2010, 1:59 am

It's really tough for me to describe this network without having to go into cussing. Another favorite network ruined by removing classics and replacing them with craptoons and live-action.

Sci Fi Network - Random Topics
This used to be one of my favorite networks. They used to have so many good shows such as MST3000, Incredible Hulk, Lost in Space, Land of the Giants, Gigantor, Transformers, Darkshadows, Farscape, Lexx, Sliders, Twilight Zone, X-Files, etc. And they used to have an actual schedual as opposed to all day marathons. They used to show classical sci-fi/horror movies. Now everything is crap. This network needs to either go back to the way it used to be or be pulled off the air and whoever is responsible for all the changes needs to be shot in the crotch. -- Submitted By: (Acobjum) on October 15, 2010, 8:36 pm

Pokemon - TV Shows
This is going to be long but I got to get it out. Here's how it SHOULD have been. Even though Ash lost at the Kanto League, he should have won the Orange Island League. Brock should not have left and Terry should've been Oak's assistant from the beginning. After winning in the Orange Isles Ash should've gone straight back to Kanto, train harder than ever, defeat Giovanni, then eventually win the League. Afterwards he would defeat the Elite Four and then Gary and after all of that Ash would go to Mt. Silver to train more, Misty and Brock would return to their gyms. The next season would focus on Gold and Crystal and their rival would be Silver. Team Rocket (Jessie, James, and Meowth) would have by this time as they mentioned yet did not do at the end of the 2nd movie was quit Team Rocket and become trainers themselves. They could follow Crystal and Gold and actually train with them instead of trying to steal pokemon. After going through Johto one of them should win the Johto league (problebly Crystal). After that they go to Kanto and have adventures there and learn about Ash and his exploits. Eventually Jessie and James would leave and get married, Meowth would stay with the trainers for more adventures. Eventually they each defeat Gary and because of Gary's attitude and personality Meowth would stay behind with him. (form another pokemon show to follow Gary and Meowth's exploits to surpass Ash, eventually teaming up with Silver) Kanto Tournament comes up and one of them should win (this time Gold). Afterwards they find out where Ash is and together they go to Mt. Silver. Next season Hoenn and then Sinnoh. Similiar stories. Eventually the the champions of each series/season (Ash, Crystal, Gold, the Hoenn champs, the Sinnoh champs and Gary & Silver) would meet on Mt. Silver and battle it out in a free for all to see who is the best (this would of course take place in a movie). Afterwards (up in the air whoever becomes the champ) they go their seperate ways. Ash marries Misty, Gary and Silver both become professors, others do whatever they want, series for now ends until Ash and Misty's child turns 10. And that is how it SHOULD have gone. Sorry if this was long, but as I said I had to get this out of my system. Granted the story would've been much longer yet the series would for the most part be much more enjoyable than what it is now. -- Submitted By: (Acobjum) on October 15, 2010, 6:19 pm

Jean Shepherd - Celebrities
Jean Shepherd was a very gifted author. One time I managed to find the book of short stories that the film 'A Christmas Story' was derived from 'In God We Trust. All Others Pay Cash.' (or something like that). Funny, funny stuff. Supposedly, the Ralphie character was based on Mr. Shepherd himself and the stories were essentially autobiographical (with some artistic liberties taken here and there). You should definitely read up on Mr. Shepherd's 'I, Libertine' prank he pulled back in his radio days. Hilarious story. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/I,_Libertine -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on October 15, 2010, 5:03 pm

Austin, Texas - Random Topics
One of the few places in Texas I can tolerate. Nice city, fun nightlife, good weather, great educational system, lots of big companies close by, nice geography. Yeah, the high number of hippie burnouts and deadbeats is annoying, but not to the point of never returning. I'd definitely consider Austin a place to move to in the future. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on October 15, 2010, 5:02 pm
