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.

2012 doomsday prediction - Random Topics
This was obviously a hoax. We don't know enough about Mayan civilization to understand this, and it was probably a metaphor misinterpreted or something. I'm sure a lot of people knew it was faux from the start. This pointless, mass hysteria to make a quick buck has already been pulled so many times already, Y2K is a perfect example. It certainly made our media go down the toilet, however, mainly the History Channel. That was depressing. -- Submitted By: (Crewman) on June 27, 2013, 4:30 pm

This place has some pretty good shoot-em-up and car chase/action games for teens and adults.... That's about it. Crappy pizza, rigged games for youngsters, grunge, outdated, hilariously bad animatronic robots, and of course, the typical mascot in a costume who parades the place, who is probably a lowly, middle aged man who hates his life, or a young person trying to pay off their student loans all pollute this kiddie hole. -- Submitted By: (Crewman) on June 27, 2013, 4:27 pm

Grammy Awards - Random Topics
@JayD: It seems that for the last few decades, every generation of music has at least one song that is completely bubbleheaded, yet inexplicably popular. For example, from the 60s, the song "Reach out of the Darkness", better known by its often-repeated lyric "So Groovy Now". Right now it's "Call Me Maybe"'s turn, but soon enough it'll fade off the pop-culture radar and be replaced by something else. -- Submitted By: (Mythigator) on June 26, 2013, 7:25 am

After DDR X, the slow decline of the game seemed to turn into an out of control crash landing. With horrible cabinet designs, unable to upgrade cabinets with SuperNOVA 2 and prior, it's no wonder many arcades stuck with SuperNOVA 2 and not X or even X2. Now even after the decent console release of DanceDanceRevolution II for the Wii, it seems Konami has given up on non-Asia audiences. -- Submitted By: (CynicalOkie) on June 25, 2013, 11:38 pm

Target - Random Topics
Target's musical commericals keep their advertising interesting, but sometimes they miss the mark. For example, a few years ago they had an ad with the theme (and prominent lyrics) of "gotta get it right now". The ad was done in a punk-rock style, and the singer sounded like she was either half asleep or experiencing some severe gastroinstestinal distress when she recorded her part. This year, we've got "Ula Ula", with some other lyrics that sound like they're in Spanish, all over the advertising landscape, and ... what the hell is up with that? What are the lyrics supposed to mean, and who the hell's idea was it to make an ad out of that. All I know for sure is that "Ula Ula" is NOT Spanish for "I was smoking something really weird when I wrote this", since I do know how to say that in Spanish. Anyway, that song's enough to make me think several times before spending any time at a Target this summer, just on the off-chance that whatever drugs the songwriter and ad people must be on are also being aerosol-released into the stores. -- Submitted By: (Mythigator) on June 24, 2013, 7:06 am

Onions - Random Topics
Random comments on a random topic: 1) Washington's state vegetable is the Walla Walla Sweet onion. 2) Onions on pizza are great. The trip through the oven takes just enough of the bite out that they don't taste bitter, but leaves enough in that the onions still contribute flavor as well as texture to the pizza. 3) Onion rings are a roll of the dice. Some places are better than others at making them. Surprisingly, Jack in the Box has pretty good onion rings. 4) Onions and hamburgers are another winning combination, but it depends on the onion. Wendy's, for example, has onions that are strong enough not only to walk, but also to chase you down and beat you up. If the onions even touch the sandwich, it's ruined as far as I'm concerned. Worse, some Wendy's restaurants seem to have a collective inability to comprehend the phrase "no onions". At those places, the only way they consistently get it right is if you say "food allergy" as well as "no onions". -- Submitted By: (Mythigator) on June 20, 2013, 8:44 am

Major League - Movie Series
As others (including myself) have already posted, Major League 2 had a multitude of problems. The thing that stuck out like a sore thumb, though, was Wesley Snipes' being replaced in the role of Willie Mays Hayes by Omar Epps. It wasn't that Epps was horrible -- he was actually pretty good -- but that he just didn't bring quite the same flair to the role that Snipes did. As far as I'm concerned, we had Hayes in the first movie and "fake Hayes" in the second. It wouldn't have made that much difference in the overall quality of the movie, but they would have been better off writing Hayes out of the movie and putting Epps in as a totally new character. In real life, of course, the reason Snipes didn't return for the second movie was because he'd gotten his acting career established on his own, and ML2 had an obvious reference to that by depicting Hayes as having starred in an action movie during the off-season. But since Snipes was gone, Hayes should have been gone as well. That wouldn't have turned ML2 into high art, as it had plenty of other problems, but at least it wouldn't have been **as much** of a fish-fest. -- Submitted By: (Mythigator) on June 14, 2013, 8:30 am

Wolverine and the X-Men - TV Shows
Though Wolverine did take a lot of presedence in this show (face it, he does anyway - even his three word cameo in X-Men First Class become one of the film's most memorable moments), it was all-round a solid series. The animation was brilliant and showed how far it had come in as a television medium with stories that were sophisticated and continuous. Many favourites were featured it might have been a lot more. Of course, TV executives have to bugger with any good (and potentially good) show nowadays it seems and despite the storyboards for a second season and the show's popularity - it was cancelled. The second season would have featured Apocalypse, the Arch-Angel storyline, maybe even the Phoenix saga and seeing what happened to Emma Frost.

This has got to be one of the most mean-spirited, sexist and downright unpleasant shows to have ever been made. I do not see any appeal it in; this was from first contact. The jokes are either vile, crude or condoning poor beahviour. By sexist, it treats women poorly and gives men a bad name and influence - nobody wins! That being said, I am certainly not a prig in television; some great shows like Seinfeld and Becker have unpleasant characters but either they have some depth to liking them or there are repercussions and/or other characters not taking kindly to their actions. Here they are just pricks you are expected to find likable and charming from the get go - no! -- Submitted By: (johnnydough) on June 10, 2013, 9:08 pm

Star Trek: The Animated Series - TV Shows
@ParkerTillman: The name of the three-armed alien crewmember was Arex. He was treated as a full-fledged member of the crew from the get-go, which is why the show was never in danger of boning by the "New Kid on the Block" reason. Arex (as well as the felinoid female crewmember, M'Ress) was an example of the show's creators taking advantage of their medium to incorporate less-human-appearing aliens into the cast of characters: It's a lot cheaper to animate an alien than to spring for makeup/costuming/FX to make him/her/it appear on a live-action screen. Arex was also the butt of a sly in-joke (but in a nice way) in the Star Trek Log series of books, i.e., the Alan Dean Foster novelizations of the animated episodes. You remember all those scenes in the original series where some outside force would shake the daylights out of the Enterprise and knock everyone out of their chairs? And we the viewers wondered, "Why the hell don't they have seat belts?" In the A.D.F. novelizations, there was a repeated motif where, as usual, some outside force would start shaking things up. Unlike TOS, though, ONE crewmember would stay in his seat: Arex, reaping the benefits of having an extra arm. It struck me as being a little funny, as well as a mild dig at the TOS writers. Anyway, Arex was the guy's name, and he was NOT a BTF character. TAS still rocks, and A.D.F.'s novelizations are pretty good, too. -- Submitted By: (Mythigator) on June 10, 2013, 8:29 am

NES (Nintendo Entertainment System) - Random Topics
The system that saved video games. If anyone remembers, video games were left for dead after the crash happened in 1984-1985. When the NES came out, it saved video games and revolutionized the genre with side scrolling games and adventure games that were never possible on Atari such as Super Mario Bros, Legend of Zelda, Metroid, Mega Man, Castlevania and Contra. The NES wasn't perfect, as the blowing on games got old and there were a good handful of awful games released for the system. That's why I tend to rate the Super NES higher as the game library was better and the graphics/sound a vast improvement from the 8-bit days, but the NES is a classic game system that can still be pointed to as the catalyst that helped get video games to where they are today. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on June 6, 2013, 11:21 am

Arrested Development - TV Shows
I give season 4 an 8 out of 10. In my opinion, it's not up to the same standards as the first two seasons and probably about par with season 3. I'm not a big fan of the single character centric story lines. Arrested Development was always a show that was the sum is greater than the parts. The humor was at its best when the characters bounced their zanyness off each other. Also, the pacing is much slower at 30+ minutes an episode. The fast paced 22 minute format fit this humor much better. I also got a bit annoyed by Ron Howard showing up on the screen every few minutes. We get it Ron, you are such a witty creative guy. Still, there was a lot of the humor and creativity you expect with AD, so I will say an 8 out of 10, though I wonder if it would have been better for them to end it when they did. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on June 3, 2013, 7:02 pm

Ironic that he's best known playing a character with one foot in the grave [Fish] from the 1970's yet he seems to have been blessed with very good health. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on June 2, 2013, 1:35 pm

Jean Stapleton - Celebrities
She just left us at age 90 but her many works will live on forever. Most notably her fleshing out what could have easily been a one-note, forgettable 'Dumb Dora' character, Edith 'Dingbat' Baines Bunker, but via Miss Stapleton's skill was transformed into the necessary heart and soul of 'All in the Family' in addition to being the often sorely needed comic relief. RIP, Miss Stapleton. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on June 2, 2013, 1:25 pm

It was nothing but a miserable experience for myself. They claim to have a "great job" for you, but it turns out to be the exact opposite of what they advertise. The companies you're placed in always put you in a completely different position than what was actually advertised, and it's a position that chances are, you were never meant to handle. -- Submitted By: (CynicalOkie) on June 2, 2013, 8:36 am

I love their All-Time Favorites menu. I can't seem to pick one or the other, so I just have the person taking my order select it by asking me, "Would you like to try the Chop House/Patty Melt/etc. today?" -- Submitted By: (CynicalOkie) on June 2, 2013, 8:21 am

World of Warcraft - Random Topics
Every expansion seems to be an experiment on what Blizzard wants to do with their player base, and when I was still playing this game, I felt like a guinea pig being experimented on. Plus, when Blizzard was bought out by Activision, the game seemed to be going on a downward spiral that continues to this day, with catering to terrible players. -- Submitted By: (CynicalOkie) on June 2, 2013, 8:18 am

Bob Newhart Show, The - TV Shows
Never boned! In my opinion this show doesn't get the credit it deserves. I agree that a big part of the success of this show were the supporting cast as well as excellent writing. One of my favorite moments from the show is when Bob and Emily are dining out with Emily's parents and Bob keeps insisting on picking up the check. It gets to the point where Bob ended up paying the tab for the people eating next to them because he wouldn't let the waiter finish telling him that the check was for the other people; Bob was too busy insisting on picking up the check. Back to the supporting cast; there were times when Bob "was out of town" so those episodes concentrated on the "others" in the show. And it was obvious that they had no problem with Bob not being there. Some of the best episodes were without Bob. Such as the one where Bob is gone and Emily is going out to dinner with an "old friend"; David Hedison. Of course Howard; Carol and Jerry think that Emily is fooling around and spy at the restaurant. The rest of that scene was "pure gold". I say that this show was easily one of the best comedies of all time. It never got "old" and it didn't "preach" anything like MASH did. It was written and acted out to make you care for the characters and laugh at their "daily exploits". It succeeded at the highest level. -- Submitted By: (Pete) on June 2, 2013, 4:39 am

Bewitched - TV Shows
I agree that the show boned with the replacement of Dick York. It was obvious that there was no chemistry between Darrin #2 and Sam. You could see that Dick York and Elizabeth had a genuine love/chemisty between them. Some of my favorite episodes involved Aunt Clara because it was also obvious that Dick York loved her as much as Sam did. As stated in the other comments Dick York was an exceptional actor to say the least. It was too bad that his medical condition forced the "people in charge" to replace him. I also agree with the comment about Darrin #2 kissing Sam seemed to be like watching "an affair"; leaving you with a "bad feeling". And again; it seemed obvious that Darrin #2 was "forcing himself" to kiss Sam; no genuine feeling of love came across in those scenes, (of course now we know why). One last note; Samantha over Jeannie any day! -- Submitted By: (Pete) on June 2, 2013, 4:17 am

TheTruth.com - Websites
Well, I recently saw one of the newest ads from The Truth. It's probably one of the worst commercials in the history of television. A stuffed dog is mounted on a giant clear pipe, as is a stuffed cat. You see, tobacco has urea, which is found in cat pee, and methane, which is found in dog poop. People are asked which is the uglier truth and press a button indicating their vote. Press the button for dog poop, and the stuffed dog defecates into the pipe. Press the button for cat pee, and the stuffed cat urinates into the pipe. It's even more disgusting than it sounds. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on June 1, 2013, 2:03 pm

Read elainewood's posts on this site and ignore the rest. Her insight is far and away better than anybody else's here. BTW, JustLooking, if it weren't for unions and Social Security, most people would NEVER be able to retire like yourself. If left to their own devices, corporations would see to it that there would be NO employee rights-all rights would go exclusively to the employers.

I like all his stuff up until the Bridge album. Even the relatively obscure album Streetlife Serenade is full of great songs. His talents as a musician shines through on the instrumental "Rootbeer Rag." "We Didn't Start The Fire" is the only song of his that I can't stand. -- Submitted By: (JayD) on May 29, 2013, 11:17 pm

Pre-Mario Lemieux, you couldn't pick out a Penguin fan in Pittsburgh even if you were given a thousand tries. After they started to stink again, people stayed away. Guaranteed once Crosby gets old, and the Penguins stink again, the fans will once away stay away in droves. At least Flyers fans stick with the team, even in the worst of times. -- Submitted By: (PYLrulz) on May 29, 2013, 12:11 pm

Survivorman - TV Shows
@jimdcarter: Since you've never watched the show, you're not in a very good position to dish on it. I won't dispute your point that reality TV shows in general have either gone BTF or are pretty close. I hardly watch any reality TV, so I'm not in a good position to argue with that point, and since I don't care much for reality TV in general, I'm not very inclined to argue with that point, anyway. But I have seen all the episodes of Survivorman, and where this show is concerned I'll dig my heels in and say that you're totally wrong. It kept its premise very simple: There is a situation and we see how the host deals with it. The basic premises of most other reality shows, however, rely on some kind of gimmick or con, which IMO places them on shaky ground from the start. (For that reason, the original Apprentice is one of the very few reality shows I've actually liked.) Anyway, Survivorman kept it simple, didn't stray from its premise, and also closed up shop before it had a chance to bone. Yes, Les Stroud's reason for quitting was the extreme physical demands of doing the show, but by a happy coincidence the timing also ensured the show would never bone. Still rocks in reruns!! -- Submitted By: (Mythigator) on May 29, 2013, 7:27 am
