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.

Billy Joel - Music Groups
I almost voted for post 1983 until I realized even that was one album too late. I didn't care for "An Innocent Man" too much. To me that was when Billy stopped being Billy and started using worn out "gimmickry" (e.g. "yet another 50s revival - oh joy - we didn't get enough of this with Happy Days") to sell records. From then on, gone were the prominent piano parts that were staples of his songs on every album up to The Nylon Curtain, replaced with standard, basic, guitar-oriented pop-rock. An Innocent Man wasn't the worst of this, but it was the start of it. It had a few bright spots, but overall it didn't remind me of a Billy Joel's previous style. It sounded more like Billy singing someone else's songs, even though I'm sure he wrote most of them. "River of Dreams" was good as albums go, but I still hear few hints of "classic" Billy Joel in there. Could be a coincidence, but when I believe he boned seems to coincide with his first divorce / marriage to Christy Brinkley. Makes one wonder if his first wife wasn't the inspiration for his early albums. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on July 19, 2012, 4:23 pm

Bee Gees - Music Groups
They boned when they went disco, because I hate disco. Maybe that's selfish, but that's why we vote. When I hear "I Started A Joke" or "New York Mining Disaster", it sounds like someone wrote a song he wanted to mean something. When I hear "Stayin' Alive" or "You Should Be Dancing", I'm reminded of that 1970s celebration of white Italian (I am one) trash called "Saturday Night Fever". There's a reason disco nostalgia came and went quickly in the 1990s. It has very little staying power. It's just not fun music to listen to. If you like dancing, it's passable, but what if you like MUSIC? -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on July 19, 2012, 4:13 pm

24 - TV Shows
I still love this show but it's obvious after reading this page that this show has jumped more times than can be counted. All of it though never really created a downfall, it was only momentary. The show lasted because it never really changed, it always felt like season 1 with a new wrapping - great for a long running show. -- Submitted By: (trigga415) on July 19, 2012, 4:11 pm

BEATLES, The - Music Groups
How can anyone say "Revolver" wasn't good after hearing "Tomorrow Never Knows"? That song was alternative rock before there was alternative rock. IMO though, Rubber Soul was their best album as it appealed to both original Beatle fans who preferred their backbeat roots, and their "hippie" fans as that was when their sound, not to mention their album art, began to evolve more in that direction. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on July 19, 2012, 4:07 pm

Beat, The - Music Groups
I could never stand the lead singer's voice. It was like a cheap David Bowie impersonation, and General Public (this band's successor) was a complete atrocity. Hearing the ridiculously overplayed 1980s dreck "Tenderness" (did this song even CHART?) to this very day inspires great despair in me. Sappy garbage. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on July 19, 2012, 3:59 pm

Bay City Rollers, The - Music Groups
Day 1. Their only "other" hit was a cover, which was later covered again (I Only Want To Be With You). Not even sure "Saturday Night", their only passable song (which was a lot less passable the last time I heard it) is original. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on July 19, 2012, 3:49 pm

Asia - Music Groups
They were never all that, and their 2nd album was horrible, but the real boning moment came when Steve Howe left the group and they soldiered on without him.

Robert, I don't see why I should be forced by my government to do without enjoying a "J" once in a while just because people like Amy Winehouse are stupid.

Aldo Nova - Music Groups
Is that why when "Fantasy" was "new" it sounded so familiar? I could have swore that song was already several years old when it "world premiered" on MTV. Now it makes sense.

Wayne Brady - Celebrities
He boned when he hosted this lame race-baiter fest on TV Land called "That's What I'm Talking About". A typical episode included "panelists" such as Al Sharpton, Harry Belafonte and George Lopez being tossed softball questions with no follow up. One question Wayne posed that started out interesting was when he asked the panelists whether OJ was guilty, and the too lame liberals Sharpton and Belafonte answered that "a jury found him not guilty", but that wasn't what Wayne asked! We know what the jury said, he asked YOUR opinion. They copped out and Wayne failed to call them out for it. Show was a joke, and the start of TV Land itself boning the fish. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on July 19, 2012, 2:06 pm

Ted McGinley - Celebrities
He boned back, because before Married.....With Children, he was pretty much the kiss of death whenever he was cast on a show. I agree it wasn't his fault, but all those sorry coincidences can't be ignored. Truth is he took a lot of roles on shows that everyone knew were on the downward slide. Do I blame him? Hell no! Struggling actors have to eat, but I can't vote "never boned". If anything, the string ended when he was cast on "Married.....With Children". I don't think he was better than Steve, or worse. I think they were both funny, but in a different vein. Steve was funny because he always let himself get dragged down to Al's level. Jefferson was funny because he was already there, but was always having to hide that from Marcy. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on July 19, 2012, 1:31 pm

I never agree with any mayor taking people's real property for being ACCUSED of a crime. Whatever happened to due process? First it was they'll take your car for drunk driving (accused, not yet convicted), then it was wreckless driving (not necessarily drunk), then the successor he endorsed expanded it to illegal fireworks possession (all fireworks in NY State are illegal - doesn't entitle some rich out-of-touch buttmunch mayor to my car). The last one is a Bloomberg deal, but Giuliani was the inspiration for it. No forfeiture without due process! These last two mayors have sucked in that regard, and please don't hand me some "end justifies the means" BS. This is still America, and only our constitution can justify the means.

I realize the verdict is in, and people have decided how they feel about Phil Spector as a result, and there's little doubt he's not playing with a full deck and hasn't been since his car accident, but I find it very hard to believe he intentionally murdered Lana Clarkson. I think they were messing around with a gun, probably drunk, and it went off. I don't see a motive to murder her really. Because she wouldn't put out? I don't buy that, and I doubt it was the first time he got smacked down. On the other hand, he has used guns to harass people before, both male and female, and by going to the well once too often he was no doubt asking for trouble. Whether it was intentional or not, he really incriminated himself with his prior behavior. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on July 17, 2012, 3:55 pm

Peter Tork - Celebrities
Never boned, but I don't think he was more talented than Mike Nesmith, and when you take both the quanity and quality of their songwriting contributions to The Monkees, I think it's no contest. Nesmith didn't just write country tunes to sing himself. He also wrote R&R songs that sounded good with Mickey Dolenz singing them(Girl I Knew Somewhere; Daily Nightly; Mary Mary). Tork's most notable contribution was "For Pete's Sake" (another vehicle for Dolenz' voice), but even on this he shared the credit. Some of the songs he wrote for "Head" were OK, but The Monkees' popularity was on the decline by then. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on July 17, 2012, 3:50 pm

His show started out good, but then he began selling out his core Conservative audience, and pandering to blacks.

This was the same guy who whined about the content of heavy metal records, but gangsta rap is OK because that's made by people you can make "kissy-ass" with? He boned irreversibly when he made up the story about being attacked by skinheads in a restroom because of his show's anti-racism themes. By this time, his show was tanking the ratings, because liberals never liked him and conservatives saw him as a sellout kiss-ass.

Going public with post partum depression should be an automatic fish bone. It is to mental illness what scientology is to religion, just a sick excuse to commit murder.

These guys are not one-hit wonders. They had 3-4 pretty popular hits during the 80s. Also, they had a unique sound, a rockabilly meets punk meets new wave sound that in the diverse music landscape of the 80s didn't sound like anything else. When I go to bars I usually hear one of their songs on the jukebox. That's pretty good staying power in my opinion. Sure, they aren't the best band from the 80s, but their songs are fun.

Jenny's posed for Playboy AGAIN, I kid you not. This is at least the third time. Whenever it happens, it's a clear sign the money (and attention) has run out. I'm not even going to ask why a shoe ad would have anyone sitting on a toilet to begin with. -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on July 16, 2012, 9:29 pm

Katie Holmes - Celebrities
Katie Holmes being able to break the brainwashing of scientology gives me a faint glimmer of hope for humanity after all. Now if only more people would follow her lead and break free of the media's brainwashing... -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on July 16, 2012, 9:23 pm

Larry King - Celebrities
Haha, that goes for me too! And to think, people act (or at least used to act) like being interviewed by him was some huge honor. Oh well, he at least went through the pretense of marriage instead of being yet another one of those people who just sleep around. -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on July 16, 2012, 9:19 pm

Katherine Heigl - Celebrities
And the sad part is, it's been that way since at least the 40s. I never knew about this incident because I just don't care about celebrities but now that I do I...um...hate her more than I already hate celebs. Yeah, that's the ticket. -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on July 16, 2012, 9:16 pm

Katherine Heigl - Celebrities
That's Hollywood for ya. You do anything against the staunch pro-gay, pro-liberal agenda and you can kiss your career goodbye. The institutions that most people believe in (marriage, family, church, etc.) are looked down upon with disdain in Hollyweird. If you want to work in that town, better keep your mouth shut if you're straight and lean conservative, even libertarian, in any way. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on July 16, 2012, 6:37 pm

Stray Cats - Music Groups
I don't think they were one hit wonders. A guy I work with plays a cd of theirs from time to time. They have some pretty catchy tunes. I'm not their biggest fan or anything but the one cd that I've heard I like. -- Submitted By: (Jp) on July 16, 2012, 6:37 pm

Six Flags - Random Topics
Overall, I enjoyed Six Flags when it was in my city. Sadly, property values, supposedly, made it relocate rides elsewhere and shut down. I hated the long lines for a 3 minute ride though and of course the over inflated prices for concessions. -- Submitted By: (Jp) on July 16, 2012, 6:31 pm

Larry King - Celebrities
I never understood why this show, and this man, were so popular. Larry always appeared to be sleep walking through interviews with his softball questions and the chain smoking was noticeable in his gravely voice. Add to that the fact this man was the male equivalent of Liz Taylor when it came to failed marriages and I just never saw the greatness of this program. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on July 16, 2012, 6:27 pm

Larry King - Celebrities
Here is where he boned for me, and you all can decide for yourselves whether this is important to you. He had Sharon Tate's (Manson family victim) sister ("Debra" I believe) on for an interview regarding whether Roman Polanski should be allowed back into the US after his statutory rape conviction in absentia decades ago. She mentions to Larry that she speaks to Roman (her former brother in law - the widower of Sharon Tate) on the phone quite often. Larry's "follow up question" to this, is to ask her how she can maintain a relationship with the man who "so brutally murdered her sister". With a horrified look on her face, she proceeded to explain to Larry that it was the Manson family, and not Roman Polanski, who murdered her sister, Sharon Tate. Some things are simply too well known in popular culture to screw up, much less someone like Larry King. Major league boning, and a major league sign he'd been doing this for too long. I'm sure many of the brain dead now believe Roman Polanski is a murderer. Great job Larry! -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on July 16, 2012, 4:53 pm

Helen Hunt - Celebrities
A friend of mine worked on the TV show Mad About You, so he got to know both Helen Hunt and Paul Reiser really well. According to him, he liked Paul Reiser, but couldn't stand Helen Hunt. He told me, "she is beyond stuck up and standoffish with everyone. She thinks of herself worthy of diva status when she's done nothing to achieve that." Look at her recent movie output and I think that speaks for itself. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on July 16, 2012, 4:50 pm

Kirk Cameron - Celebrities
How does one "sanitize" Growing Pains? It pretty much came that way, didn't it? -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on July 16, 2012, 4:02 pm

Kim Fields - Celebrities
She's 41 years old, so she better have that "break out role" soon. Being eye candy doesn't make her great. Her two sitcoms have been marginal. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on July 16, 2012, 4:01 pm

Katherine Heigl - Celebrities
She boned when she insisted Isaiah Washington be fired from Grey's Anatomy after he had already apologized to the offended actor. Even T. R. Knight didn't make any such demand, but Queen Bitch saw to it IW was rendered unemployed, and he's pretty much been out of work since. So he'll NEVER be able to rebuild his career now thanks to Katherine HiHorse. Eff her! -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on July 16, 2012, 3:53 pm

Kam Fong Chun - Celebrities
The only true Chin Ho, is Kam Kong. Those were some funny comments on the old site, like "Kam Fong as Chin Ho? Why bother?" -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on July 16, 2012, 3:43 pm

John Travolta - Celebrities
He boned when he did Saturday Night Fever. 70s disco movies are an automatic bone. An arrogant guido with a white Italian trash family (take it from someone who is one - those people were offensive) and assholes for friends is not a likable character. I realize that will ruffle a few feathers, especially for those still convinced that "SNF" was "The Godfather" with disco in it, but those people need to take their meds. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on July 16, 2012, 3:22 pm

Addams Family, The - TV Shows
Might sound funny, but we could use a TV family like the Addams. Even though they were weird and mysterious, you can't deny that they didn't love each other. Gomez and Morticia are a shining example of a strong marriage after many years and they were good, albeit again strange, parents for their kids. They also showed that you can do your own thing and it's cool. People always tried to take advantage of their enormous fortune or find ways to get rid of them, but the friendly, non judging nature of the family basically drove people crazy and kept the Addams bond strong. With the high number of shows with broken families or families that just confirm to a certain behavior traits, we could use the influence of Gomez, Morticia and the clan, even if they are creepy and kooky. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on July 16, 2012, 3:14 pm

Alvin and the Chipmunks - TV Shows
When all the episodes were parodies of movies. By that point, it seemed like they were out of ideas and using movies as the basis of every episode was an easy way of continuing with new episodes. Not that I was ever a huge fan of this show. Too predictable. Alvin gets into trouble, Dave yells "Alvin!", they get out of the jam, they sing some kid friendly cover of an 80s hit, rinse and repeat. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on July 16, 2012, 3:04 pm

Jimmy Carter - Celebrities
What helped people's anger at Republicans over Watergate was Carter's opponent, incumbent Gerald Ford, issuing a pardon for Richard Nixon, and also refusing to bail out NYC from its financial troubles. If Ford wins NY in 1976, most of us barely remember Jimmy Carter as an "also ran". -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on July 16, 2012, 2:58 pm

Katie Holmes - Celebrities
I always found Katie Holmes attractive. She's not the best actress, but she seemed like one of the few in Hollywood to not to get sucked into the weirdness. That changed when she married Tom Cruise. However, she wisely kicked his ass to the curb. It also sounds like she has renounced Scientology. If she does one role that is awesome, I might give her a full unboned rating, but she's halfway there. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on July 16, 2012, 2:42 pm

Jenny McCarthy - Celebrities
Maybe this is just a pet peeve of mine, since nobody mentioned it, but I really think there's no better way for a nice looking woman to BTW, than appearing in an ad for Candies shoes (or any ad really), sitting on the friggin' toilet! This "approach" didn't sell Millie Jackson any albums, and it won't win Jenny McCarthy any fans either. Gross! -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on July 16, 2012, 2:33 pm

Jeff Conaway - Celebrities
I always thought it was a sad irony the way life immitated art for Jeff Conaway on Taxi. Here he was playing "Bobby Wheeler", a struggling actor whose struggles included often having his parts "recast" with other actors, and being mocked by Louie DePalma about it. So what happens? The writers on "Taxi" decide Jeff's lines work just as well with other characters saying them, and his character is written out of the show. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on July 16, 2012, 2:26 pm

Jack Lord - Celebrities
In his pre-"Five-O" days, he appeared in this old film as a Virginia colonist. It's still shown to tourists visiting Virginia even today. For years my family and I have jokingly referred to it as "Jamestown Zero One". -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on July 16, 2012, 2:03 pm

Howard Stern - Celebrities
Never a fan. Always way too full of himself. The only part of his show I liked was when he had Billy West on, and then it was mainly Billy West getting the laughs doing his impersonations while Howard fed him lines. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on July 16, 2012, 1:49 pm
