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.

Michael J. Fox - Celebrities
Always been a fan of Michael J. Fox. He's a likable smart alec, which is what many of my friends are like. He was the only bright spot of the otherwise bland Family Ties and he was a large reason why Back to the Future was such a strong franchise. If his meds are helping him enough that he can act again, I say go for it. Good for him and his improving health. Never boned. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on September 6, 2012, 4:33 pm

Miley Cyrus - Celebrities
Ah, how the might have fallen. Three years ago, I speculated about whether Miley would self-destruct like Britney Spears, or just fade into obscurity. At this point, it looks like the correct answer is "fade into obscurity" -- Her public profile seems to have driven off a cliff somewhere in the last year or so, with movies that were filmed at the height of her popularity now getting minimal releases (and then only due to contractural obligations -- otherwise they would have been direct-to-video). Sic transit gloria mundi. -- Submitted By: (Eugene) on September 6, 2012, 12:42 pm

Michael J. Fox - Celebrities
Locutus, As sad as it's been to see him deteriorate from the Parkinson's, I think it's great he still wants to do what he can to earn a living and support his family and I hope he can do his impending show without any health setbacks. Oh, and for the record I've always liked his performances in his movies and TV shows. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on September 6, 2012, 12:20 pm

Tortellis, The - TV Shows
Parker, I agree with you about liking Dan Hadaya as a performer and Jean Kasem's character being too brainless to be endurable as more than a very occasional recurring character. Yeah, Lucy and Gracie Allen made good careers playing characters who often seemed to be the dullest tools in the drawer but Lucy's character was capable of being crafty [albeit these plans usually flew in her face] while Gracie's character had a logic out of synch from the rest of the world's. But Jean Kasem's Loretta just seemed too annoying to endure more than a few moments so this show was somewhat doomed. Oddly enough, though, Mrs. Kasem actually hold eleven US Patents for crib and canopy designs that she developed for her business so she may have acted too far in the opposite direction on the show. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on September 6, 2012, 12:16 pm

Republican Party - Random Topics
With Todd Akins' comment about "legitimate rape," and the fact that several other Republicans have said similar statements in the last few months (such as some of Rick Santorum's speeches), I would be really surprised if the GOP gets even 20% of the female votes. -- Submitted By: (cartooner) on September 6, 2012, 12:06 pm

Michael J. Fox - Celebrities
Disagree. He was great in BTTF. He was also the highlight of Family Ties, an otherwise unremarkable (yet popular) '80s sitcom. As for his comeback, it's his choice. Although I think if his appearance is "sad", viewers will tune out. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on September 5, 2012, 11:39 pm

World Series (Baseball) - Random Topics
I think Mike Lupica put it best (paraphrasing here): The players went on strike in 1994 because they were afraid the owners would unilaterally impose a salary cap in the absence of a CBA. However, when the owners actually tried this, the courts (Sonia Sotomayor) told them that they couldn't, which ended the strike toward the end of Spring Training 1995. Meanwhile, the 1994 World Series was cancelled. All of which begs the question, WHAT THE HELL WAS THE POINT OF THAT STIKE IN THE FIRST PLACE? -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on September 5, 2012, 3:56 pm

There's no winning with this made up holiday.

Unidentifed Flying Objects (UFOs) - Random Topics
There may be other life forms out there somewhere, but we will never know them, and vice versa, unless someone can explain to me how anyone mastered traveling at many times the speed of light to get here, or how we're going to do that in order to get somewhere else. I think agnostics who believe in UFOs are particularly daffy. God they can't accept, but extra-terrestrials travelling at the speed of light? No problem! The point being that neither has been directly observed. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on September 5, 2012, 3:33 pm

TV Land - Random Topics
Antenna TV (if Cablevision ever brings it back) beats the hell out of TV Land now. I think the beginning of the end for TV Land was when they started showing reality garbage like "She's Got The Look" (40 and 50-somethings competing to be models for gay guys - and how are they experts on beautiful women if they're gay guys?) and "High School Reunion" (like I really care about a "hedging lesbian's" experimental "date" and didn't know how that would go, unlike the dumb guy who wasted his time with that - and she wasn't even cute so you hoped she'd "stay gay" which she did). Bring back Antenna TV Cablevision! TV Land has boned. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on September 5, 2012, 3:30 pm

Profanity - Random Topics
I'm not a big profanity advocate. Don't get me wrong, but Stir Crazy was an R-rated movie, and this channel wasn't censoring "F" or "S". They were censoring "ass kisser" to say "brown nose" instead. Nobody wants their kids going around saying "ass kisser", but what the censors did there is take the unexpectedness out of the joke, and that was what made it funny. The guy Gene Wilder said it to threatens to punch him out....for calling him a brown nose? No, but for calling him an "ass kisser", it kinda makes sense. That's all I'm saying. We don't need it every other word, but let's not screw with the writer's point of view either. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on September 4, 2012, 5:07 pm

Tortellis, The - TV Shows
Dan Hedaya is a decent actor, but Jean Kasem's character (and I've long suspected she wasn't acting) was too stupid to live. That kind of character is good for laughs guesting on one episode of someone else's show. It's not going to work as one of the main characters in a series. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on September 4, 2012, 4:56 pm

Drew Carey Show, The - TV Shows
I liked it at the beginning when it was the show about a lovable loser (Drew), his goofy friends and his too good for him girlfriend. When Kate left, the show took a sharp turn into unbelievable land. Outrageous musical numbers and side-show sketches took the place of somewhat realistic story lines and the show stopped building any kind of continuity with things happening one episode and never being brought up again. It was at its best as a straight forward sitcom instead of a variety show disguised as a sitcom. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on September 4, 2012, 4:37 pm

Radar Love is one of those songs that when it comes to rock music, it just gets it right. Awesome electric guitar, a driving drum beat, a blues riff upped to new levels. About the only thing lacking are deep, meaningful lyrics, but that's not why you listen to rock music. You listen to rock out, and this song lets you do that. Golden Earring never boned! -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on September 4, 2012, 4:28 pm

This show has definitely boned back. The GSN version might be their strongest original series to date.

Closer, The - TV Shows
I actually like this show, or should I say liked. I never got the whole "Brenda's a tramp" vibe like DolFan. I thought she was a strong, but flawed, character. She wasn't perfect and the show didn't make her out to be perfect. I enjoyed the mysteries and the characters. Now that Brenda's off the show, I've already sensed some boning. The show pretty much is the same show minus the protagonist. Rarely do shows last much longer once the main character leaves and I'll give this one 1-2 more seasons before its conclusion. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on September 3, 2012, 9:18 pm

Part II. This should have been just one movie. The first one was the perfect length, perfect comedy, perfect drama, perfect romance, perfect adventures. It just worked on all levels. The second was too long, boring and confusing. The third tried way too hard to do things and force things.

Space Academy - TV Shows
Sorry, Arkady, but "Jason of Star Command" was a spin off of "Space Academy" since the opening narration clearly stated that the latter took place in 'a secret section of Space Academy' [obviously so to explain away using the exact same sets to keep their cheap budget even cheaper]. It was an okay time passer but I liked that Jonathan Harris actually got to play a respectable, heroic and honest leader even if Commander Gampoo was sometwhat pompous. At least the pomposity wasn't a dominant character trait- unlike with Dr. Smith. Oh, and the voice of Lucy Van Pelt [Pamelyn Ferdin] got to play to telephathic teen twin. Nowhere close to "Star Trek" or even "Space Ghost" but as I said it was an okay time passer. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on August 31, 2012, 10:17 am

Parker, The irony of it all is that if you'd been around see the septuagenarian nudist when she was in her salad days, unless you were married to her,you wouldn't have been able to see her in anything less than long sleeves and knee-length skirts because she'd have been in her 20's and 30's under Franco who did his best to keep the Continental 'decadence' from getting a toehold in Spain going so far as to have police arrest and fine those who wore 'immodest' bathing suits.

Pirates of the Caribbean - Movie Series
One was good, two was also good, (loved the three-way sword fight on the beach as the girl character lamented 'these are grown men doing this!') three was also good but devolved into a wild mishmash of an series ever-changing loyalties and alliances, plus the last thirty or so minutes was a wild bunch of scenes slammed togther. It was like half of another movie jammed into that one. The last one was also good, if forgettable, loved the scene where he was with the woman and they were talking about relationships and Jack says, "So you lied about telling the truth?"

@Robert. Pooping and peeing have a certain hygeine element to them, being buck naked does not. The way we see nudity (at least in most of the English speaking world) - or are made to see nudity is sexual, where it is not. It being natural is a reason to not be so uptight and make people feel more comfortable. Basically, it makes the human body tabboo - do you want to not be able to look at yourself as such?

The major problem with baseball is marketing. The NBA and NFL are so popular because they both have excellent marketing.

MLB is super popular in the Northeast, Chicago and California, but it struggles in some other areas of the country because we don't hear about the stars or the league or really anything. I must say, though, that this baseball season is one of the best in recent memory.

Bloomberg's soda idea is so idiotic and dumb that I really hope it's shot down before it has a chance to pass. However, in PCville New York, where you must always be progressive, I'm sure it will pass. You know because banning things always works...

House - TV Shows
I agree that he's good, but I'd rule out Asperger's syndrome, since he doesn't seem to be clumsy. Actually, I would just say that he's a genius who was psychologically damaged by his Marine colonel father. -- Submitted By: (hbrennan) on August 28, 2012, 8:49 pm

Superman - Random Topics
George Reeves death. He was "the people's Superman". Christopher Reeve was too much of a sex symbol (before the accident of course), and all those drooling women ended up spawning some really cheesy sequels that included an affair with Lois Lane. The first movie was pretty good. You'd never see George Reeves and Lois in the sack. Some might say it's because TV censors wouldn't allow it. I say it wouldn't have occurred to them to portray a comic book character in that light with kids also watching the show. To me Superman was about saving people who needed help and who couldn't help themselves, either situationally or because they were somehow defenseless. He was not about "scoring". Add to this the silly "Lois & Clark" and "Smallville" TV series' and any post-George Reeves Superman is "all too human" for me. His renunciation of his American citizen ship is icing on the cake. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on August 28, 2012, 5:08 pm

Sun Tanning - Random Topics
.....and apart from the health issues, tanning will do ABSOLUTELY NOTHING to improve your appearance (it neither makes the ugly beautiful, nor the beautiful more beautiful) and I personally find it immensely boring and uncomfortable to lie still in searing heat to attain what will not improve my appearance. Even without skin cancer I never got the "appeal" of sun tanning. To me that always meant "stop the fun you're having in the water" to get real bored lying in the sun and heat. Sorry, sucked from the start. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on August 28, 2012, 4:55 pm

Blu-Ray - Random Topics
Bah. It took us forever to finally dump VHS for DVD; we didn't go for DVD right away because of the huge collection of VHS tapes we amassed over the years. We couldn't abandon them, we worked too hard to just dump them for some format that would/could go obsolete in less than a decade. Then came the day we were literally forced to wean ourselves off of VHS: new movies were released on DVD only. VHS recording ran up to 6 hours, you could record over shows or movies you no longer cared about or needed, and blank tapes were relatively inexpensive. But there were cons: to get to certain parts, you had to Fast Forward until you reached it. And if the tape was at the very beginning and the part was near the end, you'd be waiting several minutes to hit Play. You had to rewind the tape, otherwise if you left it in the middle, the tape would warp right where you left it. Tapes could get eaten by the VHS player. Then, at last, we gave DVDs a try: You didn't need to fast forward to reach the end; all you had to do was go through a menu to pick the part you wanted to see. Fast Forward now had more speeds, and in the time it took to Fast Forward a tape, you could Fast Forward the same DVD about 8-16 times in a row. It took about a year for movies to go from silver screen to tapes on store shelves, but it takes DVD mere months. They had higher storage capabilities and had features not seen in VHS: Commentary mode, animatics (for animated movies), and more. Discs are way smaller than tapes, and you could fit many discs in storage case. But, there were cons: DVD players were pricey back then and DVDs with recording capabilities were expensive. Nowadays, the prices have gone down, so the cons are all but eliminated. And so, we rebuilt our VHS collection on DVD. Now, enter Blu-Ray. It's the advent of DVD all over again, this time repackaged with more memory, and you need a whole new player in order to use it. Nobody I know has one. Plus, with Hulu, downloadable movies, and other competition, there's not really much of a reason to own one. -- Submitted By: () on August 28, 2012, 3:24 pm

Michael Bloomberg - Celebrities
Independent, my butt. I know what an independent is, and he's no independent. His latest act of idiocy is banning large soda sizes...so now, if you're at a movie theatre and have eaten a lot of popcorn, you can't buy a large soda anymore. The only way to slake your thirst is to buy two sodas. If you go to 7-11 on a hot day, say good bye to the large cup for $1.59. If you're thirsty enough, you gotta buy 2 small ones for $1.19 each. As a result, you're getting less than your money's worth. And wouldn't two soda cups be more damaging to the environment than one large soda cup? -- Submitted By: (Robert) on August 28, 2012, 2:35 pm

Nudity - Random Topics
To the (currently) #1 reason: OK, so nudity is natural. Pooping and peeing is natural, too. Should people therefore be allowed to relieve themselves in public? Or wherever they want, for that matter? To ParkerTillman: AUGHHH! Must purge mental image! -- Submitted By: (Robert) on August 28, 2012, 2:15 pm

Monopoly - Random Topics
"How often do you park in a free lot finding money lying around?" LOL, that's hilarious! And a succinct way to put it. I never even experienced hitting the jackpot on Free Parking until I played it with students and teachers (the latter making that rule). This made the game last forever as someone else was bound to hit the jackpot by the time the last winner's funds were running low. When I was younger, I thought you went to jail by landing on the Jail space, until my parents said, "No, you're just visiting. See?" Then showed me the Just Visiting segment of the square. I've played alternate versions of Monopoly, so I'm not necessarily averse to them. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on August 28, 2012, 2:01 pm

St. Patrick's Day - Random Topics
I don't care about green beer or people celebrating this holiday, but when it's used as an excuse for people to get piss drunk and act like loud obnoxious buttholes on the LIRR it boned the fish. St. Patrick didn't drive the snakes out of Ireland so he could get drunk without having to worry about getting bit. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on August 28, 2012, 1:41 pm

Major League Baseball - Random Topics
I wouldn't worry too much about the expansion of teams, but rather, ownership of some teams. You have Peter Angelos in Baltimore who has pretty much wrecked a once proud franchise, you have the ownership in Kansas City who run that team on the cheap, Minnesota ownership who looks like they just decided to wise up and build a team until they got their stadium, Oakland ownership who is just plain incompetent, Pittsburgh ownership who was cheap AND incompetent, Tampa Bay ownership for the longest time who were just ran by idiots, and Miami ownership who believed in firesales. -- Submitted By: (PYLrulz) on August 28, 2012, 1:24 pm

Monopoly - Random Topics
Just silly little house rules that people play with. No biggie in my book. If I have one problem with Monopoly, it's just that it takes so long to play. -- Submitted By: (PYLrulz) on August 28, 2012, 1:20 pm

NFL Pro Bowl - Random Topics
Day 1. You are talking about a violent, hard hitting sport, having an all-star game at the end (or near-end) of the season, and asking certain players to play in it?!? No way! -- Submitted By: (PYLrulz) on August 28, 2012, 1:18 pm

Beavis and Butthead said it best on one episode... If you go to an Olive Garden, and leave hungry, you're stupid! A little overpriced, but I won't gove there to splurge every once in a great while -- Submitted By: (PYLrulz) on August 28, 2012, 1:17 pm

National Football League (NFL) - Random Topics
So you want guys head hunting, and hitting themselves stupid?!? I like a good, hard, CLEAN hit, but if you think that trying to take out head shots is "pussifying" a sport, then I'm sorry, neandrathals like you need to be shown the door. -- Submitted By: (PYLrulz) on August 28, 2012, 1:14 pm

Kate Hudson - Celebrities
She's attractive but who'd have imagined that "Almost Famous" has thusfar proven prophetic re her own career heights? Oh well, maybe she can get together with Tahnee Welch [Raquel's daughter whose only notable work has been "Cocoon" movies]. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on August 28, 2012, 10:07 am
