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.

Call of Duty - Random Topics
The biggest problems that I have with Call of Duty is that Activision keeps releasing it every year and overexposes it, and the fact that many of the people who play the games tend to be extremely immature. -- Submitted By: (cartooner) on August 7, 2013, 8:13 pm

I lost all respect for him when he left the Mariners for more money. If he wasn't so greedy, he may have brought the Mariners to a world series win.

I don't expect the appeal to be quick because I think he's stalling so he can collect his undeserved millions. -- Submitted By: (JayD) on August 6, 2013, 7:09 pm

Guitar Hero (series) - Random Topics
I'm glad the series is dead. It's amusing all the former Rock Band/Guitar Hero players in my area trying to sell their worthless plastic guitars, drums, mics for all the money they've wasted spending on this crap when it was new. I never bought into the hype that much, I knew from the beginning that this series was trash. I even had the audacity to try and play some Guitar Hero and I never felt like I was really playing guitar. I was only taught how to HOLD a guitar, but that was it and nothing beyond. I would later try to play a friend's real guitar with actual strings. Know what? Buttons can't save you now! There's a lot more involved in playing a real guitar than whatever the guys at Activision thought there was. I'm sure though there were some smart buyers who understand the differences between the two and found some fun in these series. Even if it lasts for a month at most. However, I shake my head at the millions who initially thought this was ever a key into playing a real guitar. Glad the series is dead and stay dead. -- Submitted By: (Infyrin) on August 5, 2013, 2:07 am

Second Life - Websites
My gripe(s) with Second Life is that it was geared, supposedly, to represent some aspects from our reality. Like it was meant to be a "Second Life" for us to live in while in this vast virtual world. However, as years came by after it's initial release. What it has become was nearly nothing like it promised. It feels like you're controlling a Sim-like avatar in a Sim-like world with some exceptional differences. It's graphics are out of date, the GUI is cluttered, and customizing is only based on how well one knows how to make an item to implement in Second Life. I've had some items that have well-made options for customization. Then I've had others where, well, leaves to be desired. It is 2013 right now and Second Life barely has taken advantage of or used the technology presented today. Consoles and PCs are geared to take graphic levels up to newer heights and Second Life plays out like it's 2003/2004. I am glad though we don't have to pick obscure, random gibberish names like in the earlier days. They were so garbled I can't remember a single one, I can only remember a letter and it started with "X". I mean, geez. I agree that people have became selective of where they hang out now, which leaves many buildings and lands practically ghost towns of former populace from the early days. My biggest gripe of all is, that there's barely any realism. Everything realism is based on how many animations or, "AO"s they're called, of what your avatar can do. There is no free movement past walking, running, and flying. I also don't get and I've always had this small complaint throughout any avatar or virtual worlds I've been in. Why have food, when you can't eat it? All you do in Second Life when it comes to food is put it in your inventory. Why would you want it there? What use does it have being there other than for poses? And another thing in regards to free movement. You can't pick something up like an item out in the open or a pet you've bought to cuddle or play with it. Everything has to be prompt in Second Life with a little dialogue window popping up and asking you whether or not you want to proceed. That gets annoying after a while. Nobody can die either so we're all immortal. I mean, the way I would see it if someone died in Second Life was whether their avatar just dies. Now it may seem that I'm hating Second Life because it doesn't feel like a video game. That's not my point. My point is, why prop up something like Second Life and promise like it'd be similar to reality? Instead, people are too busy comparing fashions with each other, seeing who's got the more money to afford expensive virtual housing or items to make their avatars better, and people overly clingy to the false-reality representation Second Life presents. It may have some uses, like for RP-ing and whatnot. But, c,mon. If we're meant to have a "Second Life", what's wrong with putting some realism in it? -- Submitted By: (Infyrin) on August 4, 2013, 7:46 pm

Bones - TV Shows
IIRC, this show was advertised as being based on a real person. I tried watching the pilot and it featured a hologram projector. I checked out right then and there. I've been told by family members that they have since done away with the hologram projector, but I don't care. It is and always was a cheesy show. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on August 4, 2013, 3:04 pm

James Cameron - Celebrities
Well this is easy-- Titanic. I liked everything he did before that and hated Titanic and everything after. Now he's talking about THREE Avatar sequels. Ugh. The sad thing is, his later works have brought out flaws in his older stuff. James Cameron's characters, especially his villains, are always 2-dimensional cliches. It didn't really stand out when those villains were aliens or terminators, but when he transitioned into human villains it became obvious. And you can see his "military are bad" themes as far back as The Abyss and maybe further. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on August 3, 2013, 10:49 am

Lone Gunmen, The - TV Shows
That was my main problem with the show, too. It just reeked of studio interference. "Nobody's gonna wanna watch three geeks; add a babe and a hunk!" I watched most of the episodes and those two characters really dragged things down. The show flopped and was cancelled and then Chris Carter, like a spoiled brat, decided to kill off the Lone Gunmen in an X-Files episode to punish the fans for not watching the show. The episode was even named Jump the Shark. As for the 9/11 parallels, I can't explain it. It's the weirdest, most bizarre coincidence that I've ever experienced. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on August 3, 2013, 10:41 am

Our kids loved this show; and what 4 and 6 year olds wouldn't? The scripts were dumbed down for the "target audience" being kids. There was "Dukes" products all over the place.

Bones - TV Shows
This show "boned" when the "short funny lines", (noted by the harp playing), starting taking up more time than the original plot. I would say the first 2 seasons were the best and then it started going downhill. My wife still likes this show so it was on last night. And of course I could tell that the episode was a "special episode" depicting another of life's social tragedies. And don't get me going on the "baby side of this show". -- Submitted By: (Pete) on August 3, 2013, 5:31 am

I'm nostalgic for the 70s and 80s because I was going to school at the time. For me, nostalgia ends at the turn of the 90s.

Nostalgia - Random Topics
Nostalgia is something that I think we all have, in one way or another. Of course, one problem with it is that it tends to make the past be better than it actually was. For example, if this chart (http://www.disastercenter.com/crime/uscrime.htm) is anything to go by, the overall crime rate in the US is at its lowest since the 1970s, and the murder rate is at its lowest since the 1960s. -- Submitted By: (cartooner) on July 24, 2013, 10:19 pm

Flip flops are okay if you are going to the beach, the pool, showering at a gym, or going to grab your mail. Other than these places, I think they are tacky to wear.

When I was growing up I had one hero: Lance Armstrong. I always wore a Livestrong wrist band, had posters of him completely covering my walls and actively recruited other kids to support the Livestrong Foundation and raise money for it. Lance was everything a hero should be, strong, courageous, generous, noble, and he always told the truth! I guess it was the boy scout in me that made be believe in him, I desperately wanted to know that there were some people out there who rose above the crowd and had pure souls. Now I know the truth. Lance Armstrong not only is a cheat and a liar but a horrible, terrible, sick, pathetic, worthless, low life piece of crap. If I saw him I would not hesitate to spit in his face and slap him.

Sorry, but HFCS isn't good. Those commercials where they say "sugar is sugar" is just corn farmers trying to spin it in a positive light. Sugar in general isn't good for you, but HFCS is digested in the human body differently than regular sugar. That's where the health issues lie. HFCS is much more fattening than regular sugar. The truth is there really is no nutritional value at all in soda. You drink it regularly, you will get fat, rot your teeth, and potentially get diabetes no matter if it's HFCS or sugar. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on July 19, 2013, 12:17 pm

Dennis the Menace (1959 sitcom) - TV Shows
I just read a portion of Jay North's account of his days as Dennis. This has also been confirmed by Jeannie Russell who played Margaret and remained close friends with Jay to the present day, just like Pelirojo said. His mother worked full time and could not supervise Jay on the set so she got her sister to go with him to the studio every day and look out for his interests. Apparently Jay's dad was out of the picture. His aunt was a monster who slapped and hit the boy when he flubbed a scene or was not giving his best performance. Of course this took place away from the director, cast and crew. According to Jay, she would hit him "where it didn't show," so no one on set would become alarmed. Jeannie Russell confirmed this went on for years and saw bruises and red marks on Jay's back. Remember she was a child herself at the time and was scared to speak up. Jay himself was terrified of the aunt who promised to severely hurt him if he told anyone. Of course this was well before the days when California had social workers on the set where children were working. It is truly amazing that Jay turned out to be a happry, well adjusted adult. He gave up acting in his teens and leads a quiet life with his family in Florida. I'll never be able to see a picture of jay during those years without my heart breaking for him. -- Submitted By: (jmac9909) on July 19, 2013, 9:31 am

I heard that HFCS is not the demon they make it out to be, as sugar is sugar; they just get it from corn instead of sugarcane. Sort of like using honey instead of sugarcane when making tea or coffee. Ironically, the food police demanded HFCS be used because sugar was evil. Now they backpedal, saying HFCS is evil. Either way, too much sugar is bad for anyone. That said, I tried Throwback Pepsi as well. I like both versions: regular versions' syrupy texture, and Throwback's sugar and spicy flavor. Sometimes, I drink Mexican Pepsi (sugarcane instead of HFCS), which is delicious. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on July 18, 2013, 12:45 pm

Kid Rock - Music Groups
I really hate that All Summer Long song, no relation to the Beachboys song of the same title. It is one of those songs you can only bear to hear once, like the typical novelty song(eg. Because I Got High). I had to change the station when it came on a second time. Not to mention, it ruined the songs "Sweet Home Alabama" and "Werewolves of London" for me. -- Submitted By: (JayD) on July 16, 2013, 7:08 pm

Emergency! - TV Shows
There seems to be a lot of episodes where some kid gets stuck somewhere because of his or her stupidity, and the emergency crew has to free him or her. There was one time a kid got stuck inside a tree and all you can see is his feet sticking up. I watch this show occasionally to see what stupid things people do that gets them into a position where they have to be rescued. There was one time, believe it or not, they had to rescue somebody who got stuck inside a hide-a-bed. -- Submitted By: (JayD) on July 16, 2013, 6:57 pm

Father Knows Best - TV Shows
I don't recall any actual episodes but I'm pretty sure this show inspired the old fashioned TV world as seen in the movie Pleasantville. -- Submitted By: (JayD) on July 16, 2013, 6:48 pm

Dennis the Menace (1959 sitcom) - TV Shows
Good insights, jim. What's interesting is that contrary to their onscreen rivalry, the performers who played Dennis and Margaret were [and remain] good friends offscreen. This made their antagonism somewhat more layered than had the performers outrightly hated each other. Of course how many times do 'best buds' onscreen turn out to dislike each other off? -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on July 16, 2013, 10:59 am

Google - Websites
I just saw a news story about the newest technology: Google Glasses. Yep, they put this tiny screen on these glasses that the wearer can verbally 'command' to do everything from take pics to do searches,etc. and the results will be visible ON THE LENS. Right now the price is about $1000 so that will keep it out of many folks budget for a time.It's getting annoying enough seeing all these texters play with their sardine cans all over the place while the art of conversation seems to be evaporating but how will things be with all these 'four-eyed' Googlers running around? Oh, and does anyone else dread imagining what the ROADS while be like with all these Google Glasses folks DRIVING? YEESH! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on July 16, 2013, 10:47 am

Mork & Mindy - TV Shows
Even as a tween/teen watching the show when it originally aired, I thought it went downhill fast with the multi-episode story arc of Mork and Mindy's wedding and subsequent honeymoon on Ork. jmac9909's and elainewood's comments are right on -- viewing Mork & Mindy 30-odd years later is a perfect demonstration of how our concept of humor evolves (or SHOULD evolve) as we grow up. -- Submitted By: (Mythigator) on July 16, 2013, 7:53 am

Pauly Shore - Celebrities
Encino Man is quite watchable **in spite of** Pauly Shore. Brendan Fraser (in the title role) really carries the movie. Shore's character isn't all that likeable. Through the 2000s/2010s pop-culture lens, he comes off as a cross between an 80s valley-guy airhead and a modern-day metrosexual ... in other words, think of what the end result would be if Jeff Spicoli and Rajesh Koothrappali raised a child together. Anyway, Encino Man was the first thing I saw Pauly Shore in, and ever since then, I've never been much impressed with him. -- Submitted By: (Mythigator) on July 16, 2013, 7:39 am

Batman: The Brave and the Bold - TV Shows
You have to understand, this Batman show is not trying to be your typical "Dark Knight" show, but. A more upbeat one, akin to Adam West. Great team ups abound and fun stories eventually made me a fan. And i love how they portrayed Aquaman, "Outrageous!" Oh and Travoltron, they didn't shoehorn him in, this pays homage to the Brave and the Bold comic which pretty much always had Batman starring. -- Submitted By: (trigga415) on July 16, 2013, 3:02 am

Kid Rock - Music Groups
Not a fan, never have been. Tries to be the jack-of-all-trades with his music, but instead falls flat in any of them. Comes off dirty, uneducated and red neckish with his faux rebel act. "All Summer Long" is one of the worst songs I've ever heard, and not just because it rhymes "things" with "things" or mashes together two classics in "Sweet Home Alabama" and "Werewolves of London" and desecrates them... wait, yes, that's exactly why I hate that song. Day one for me. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on July 16, 2013, 1:46 am

Ross Geller - Random Topics
Possibly one of the most annoying TV characters there's ever been. I realize there are many but Ross really was annoying to me. He did have some funny moments at times.

Father Knows Best - TV Shows
My gram remembers when this show was on TV and always said how good it was, so I watched a bunch of the episodes on Netflix. Yikes! First of all, the town (Springfield!) seemed to be 100 percent white and middle class. A typical plot involved Bud (the dim-witted teenage son) getting into hilarious shenanigans with his idiot friends. After getting "a stern talking to" (1950's code for getting his butt whipped) Bud will wipe his eyes and whimper something like "Holy Cow! None of the other guy's got into trouble!" To which his father replies, "That's because none of the other dads love their sons as much as I love mine!" Then sappy music swells up and the whole family agrees that "Father really does know best!" Do the same thing over and over and forever and that's pretty much the show! Except occasionally the teenage daughter Betty will do the shenanigans. This show literally had no minorities and it belittled women to the point where I was rooting for the mom to gut-stab the old man during dinner. One episode I saw had Betty demanding to go duck hunting with the boys since her brother got to go. Of course shenanigans ensued and Betty admitted that women should stay home and cook the ducks, not go shoot them. Of course here comes the sappy music and everyone agreeing, "Gee, Betty, maybe father really does know best!" Off set, the actor Billy Gray (Bud) was a pothead. He was busted shortly after the show ended for possession with intent and didn't work for several years as an actor. Another true fact is that Gray holds a U.S. patent for a type of "personal massager." I would have loved to have seen Bud try to explain those shenanigans to dear old dad!" -- Submitted By: () on July 15, 2013, 4:16 pm

Twilight Zone (1959-64) - TV Shows
Rod Serling was a brilliant writer, brilliant! I have always read (in academic books as well as the popular press) that CBS would not leave him alone and micro-managed the series to death. Many of his scripts were rejected for being "too intellectual" and the network forced him to include feel-good stories that had little to do with the original premise. Still, Serling managed to write and produce some of the best episodes ever shown on TV: "Time Enough at Last" with the awesome Burgess Meredith; "The Hitch-Hiker," with the equally brilliant Inger Stevens; and of course two William Shatner scenery-chewing delights, "Nightmare at 20,000 Feet" and "Nick of Time." I still get a kick out of seeing Serling stepping out from behind the set in the original episodes, reeking of 1960 sophistication and cool. -- Submitted By: (jmac9909) on July 15, 2013, 3:01 pm

Jeffersons, The - TV Shows
Funny show for a few seasons but it stayed on the air for, what, 11? I have made a point of watching some of the later season shows, currently in syndication. Not only has Lionel disappeared for the second time, or wait I guess for the third time, but Louise is acting like a rich b-word and George has lost touch with his roots. Jenny is still on the show but the character has become an air-head and the Willis's are painfully stupid and out of touch. What really did it for me was when Louise and George went to a charity costume ball and they dressed like famous white people! The old George and Weezy would never have done that and would have selected Dr. King and Rosa Parks or other famous, historically important African-Americans. Oh, Marla Gibbs remained funny as hell as Florence throughout the entire series. -- Submitted By: (jmac9909) on July 15, 2013, 2:38 pm

Roseanne - TV Shows
OMG I wish I could erase the final season from my brain. This was a very funny show for 8 seasons, which is something really hard to pull off. I just wish they had wrapped it up before the bizarre and obnoxious final season. Oh, and I would not mind at all if the Tom Arnold episodes were physically cut out of my brain as well. As others have noted, what gave this show its huge fan base was the fact that it was based in reality. The Connors had a crappy house but it was theirs and they fought to keep it. They had a totally dysfunctional family but they all loved each other and forgave each other's shortcomings. I grew up in house a lot like that, my brothers and I never knew we were poor and thought everyone had dry cereal and crackers for dinner every now and then. Season 9 arrives and the Connors are no longer poor, guess what? They were no longer funny either and not even remotely likeable. I always thought the series finale was Roseanne giving her fans a big fat finger. I still don't like here and will change the channel when she comes on. -- Submitted By: (jmac9909) on July 15, 2013, 1:59 pm

Mork & Mindy - TV Shows
I loved this show when I was a kid and thought it was the very pinnacle of sophistication and wit. Boy, was I wrong! I saw an episode recently and was shocked at how stupid everyone was, especially Mork! I gave it another chance the next time I stumbled across an episode and it was even worse then the first one. Williams and Winters babbled, hooted, geeked out, made idiotic noises and gestures and the other characters thought they were cute. Man, Robin Williams is a fine actor and I love his dramatic roles but given a total blank check for his "comedy" he gets old really quickly! -- Submitted By: (jmac9909) on July 15, 2013, 1:45 pm

Dead Like Me - TV Shows
I could never stand Mandy Patinkin until I started watching this show. I quickly came to love his Rube Sofer character and it absolutely made the show, he held together an amazing ensemble cast. The storylines were pretty unusual for what was basically a sitcom, even a weird sitcom. I loved how they showed the afterlife as being different for each person, with no stereotypical angels sitting around on clouds. Although it could be sad, particularly when dealing with the aftermath of George's death on her family, it could also be very, very funny! It was cancelled far too early and the movie they made to wrap up loose ends was awful! It will remain a classic forever. -- Submitted By: (jmac9909) on July 15, 2013, 1:11 pm

Dennis the Menace (1959 sitcom) - TV Shows
Wow! Have times ever changed! I saw some of the episodes decades after they first aired and remembered thinking Mr. and Mrs. Wilson were in their 80's. My dad said they were supposed to be in their early 60's. Amazing, they got up each morning, got dressed up and sat around staring at each other, except when Mr. Wilson would have his daily apoplectic fit over the neighbor's 1st grader. My dad is now 70, still works full-time, has tons of activities and refuses to be baited by a five year old, LOL! It seemed like a cute show but I did wonder why Dennis' parents didn't lay down the law on his pranks. Maybe he actually did kill Mr. Wilson? The guy was always on the verge of a stroke anyway. -- Submitted By: (jmac9909) on July 15, 2013, 1:02 pm

Outer Limits, The (1963-1965) - TV Shows
I agree, best intro and outro music, ever! For Christmas a few years ago I got the entire original series boxed set on DVD and watched every single episode. The writing was phenomenal and never insulted serious science fiction fans. Alternate dimensions, alien civilizations, time warps, wormholes, all were featured on various episodes and had cutting edge theories in physics. This was NOT a dumbed down show that had an obligatory monster-of-the-week. The actors were some of the best in Hollywood at the time and I imagine it became a cool show to work. Martin Landau, Leonard Nimoy, Robert Culp, Robert Duvall, Sally Kellerman, Geraldine Brooks, Dabney Coleman and many more made this a first class production. Unlike The Twilight Zone, which had its share of bad episodes, schlock and camp, The Outer Limits stuck to its principles. They never produced a cute or funny episode, just excellent TV and story telling! -- Submitted By: (jmac9909) on July 15, 2013, 12:50 pm

Parker Lewis Can't Lose - TV Shows
Good show with a good cast and crew, including one of the best TV directors of the period, Rob Bowman, who went on to direct some of the best episodes of the X-Files. I recently saw some PLCL episodes and they were pretty funny but very weird. I thought Parker and Mikey had a full on bro-mance. They were just too stupid (Mikey) or scared (Parker) to act on it. Funny how they were always talking about girls but when they had the chance to actually get into serious relationships, they always chickened out. In one episode they both had "hot dates" but found the girls boring and ditched them and met up with each other. Parker, Mikey and Kubiak rocked but I didn't like The Jerry character and found him to be an offensively stereotypical Jewish kid. Some belly laughs but mostly just pleasant stories about good kids. -- Submitted By: (jmac9909) on July 15, 2013, 12:29 pm
