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.

With the apparent death of the soap opera as a TV genre, I'm wondering what will happen to all those actors and actresses now. For decades, they existed in this weird insular worlds where almost none of them ever seemed to age.

Blu-Ray - Random Topics
When it came out, it wasn't nearly as big a leap forward as DVD had been over VHS, and was caught in a format war with HD-DVD for a limited pool of early adopters, with the vast bulk of consumers taking a wait-and-see approach. By the time it was the clear winner, the global recession hit. As that ever-so-slowly eases up, digital downloading has become the new standard and there is simply no demand from consumers for a new physical format.

National Football League (NFL) - Random Topics
Not to sound heartless, because the impact of concussions is serious and nothing to laugh about, but why is this all of a sudden groundbreaking news? What do you expect will happen to your brain if it takes a continually pounding by 300 pound men over and over again? It doesn't take a rocket scientist to realize that football is a dangerous game. The whole thing makes me scratch my head. Why in 2012 is this now becoming such a hot button issue? I know because of the lawsuits, but if you expect to go play a game where you are hit hard by 300 pound athletic men for multiple years and come out unscathed, that doesn't take in-depth research to figure out the eventual consequences. It takes common sense from everybody. NFL needs to have a better plan for post-career care, players need to know the risks they are taking by playing for a long time in the NFL, and Gooddell/the owners need to know it makes no sense when you cry safety and then want to extend the season. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on August 23, 2012, 4:57 pm

I have a problem with "isms" in general and the equal rights controversy. Until there are no more special rights for women, blacks, gays, etc. and until there are no more special scholarships for them, no more special holidays for them, no more any of that, then we are not equal. Once we ALL have the same EQUAL rights, not SPECIAL rights, and once double standards are over, then we will achieve equal rights. There is major confusion between EQUAL and SPECIAL. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on August 23, 2012, 4:36 pm

Degrassi: The Next Generation - TV Shows
Jumps in and out. Season 12 is on fire, some brilliant stuff. Season 11 is pretty good if a bit filler-y toward the end. Season 10, the first Spinnerless one had some landmark moments and some so-so stretches. Stay away from the instrumental-theme-music era, and tell the later seasons apart at a glance by the changes of dress code: Season 10- early: Normal clothes as per previous years. Late: Strict uniforms, identical khakis looking like they're from the same supplier, blue Degrassi cardigans the only acceptable outerwear, school IDs displayed on lanyards. Season 11- Looser uniforms, any pants that are beige/khaki in color OK as are non-regulation hoodies. Season 12- Back to normal street clothes, retaining displayed IDs. -- Submitted By: (yoda) on August 22, 2012, 7:32 pm

Cable TV - Random Topics
Yeah, we get our 'cable' through our phone & internet provider. No complaints in terms of service but we are definitely weighing our options with regard to 'cutting the cable' in 2013. The cost has really begun to outweigh the benefit in our opinion. With the current package we take, we currently get approximately 300 channels. Easily 20% of those are Spanish language channels. I have nothing against the language or Spanish speaking people in general- but I don't speak the language at all! Thus those channels are useless to me and frankly a waste of my money. another 25% of those are sports channels and- I don't really watch a lot of sports. Again- waste! On top of all that, we just don't watch a lot of television anymore, and when we do- it's very specific shows. I'm thinking we'll keep our internet and phone with our current provider and go with one or two of the On-Demand services (Netflix, Hulu, etc.) and just start buying seasons of our favorite shows on Blu-Ray. -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on August 14, 2012, 3:20 pm

Dragon's Lair Games - Random Topics
This game is essentially Simon in arcade form. Memorize the pattern, repeat it, and win. Yes, it was a quarter eating monster back in the 80s because it took multiple tries to figure out the pattern, so you'd die over and over and had to keep putting quarters in to get further. However, once you knew the pattern, you could easily beat the game with one quarter. I remember how it stood out in arcades because it looked just like a Disney cartoon. I also remember that the game had zero replay value after you beat it. In the golden era of arcades, this game looked like a gem ahead of its time, but today it's a laughably simplistic game. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on August 13, 2012, 10:22 am

Dragon's Lair Games - Random Topics
When Dragon's Lair came out in the mid-80s, I was in the peak of my video-game playing days, but I took a pass on it. Unless you had the sequences (and timing) of moves memorized down to the last detail, it was a total quarter eater, as others have said. Cool as the concept was, in practical terms the game only had entertainment value if you were the sort of videogamer who got their jollies from memorizing the Pac-Man patterns, OR if you were fortunate enough to be in the arcade when such a person was on the game. Again, the game was a cool idea, but because it was ahead of its time, the implementation was where the de-skeletonized ichthyoids lurked.

Huey Lewis and the News - Music Groups
Do you like Huey Lewis and the News? Their early work was a little too new wave for my taste, but when Sports came out in '83, I think they really came into their own, commercially and artistically. The whole album has a clear, crisp sound, and a new sheen of consummate professionalism that really gives the songs a big boost. He's been compared to Elvis Costello, but I think Huey has a far much more bitter, cynical sense of humor. In '87, Huey released this, Fore, their most accomplished album. I think their undisputed masterpiece is "Hip to be Square", a song so catchy, most people probably don't listen to the lyrics. But they should, because it's not just about the pleasures of conformity, and the importance of trends, it's also a personal statement about the band itself. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on August 12, 2012, 6:00 pm

Multiculturalism - Random Topics
Like it or not, the United States IS a multicultural nation [yes, even in our region, DolFan] and I believe it's to every individual's benefit to know what makes other folks tick as much as possible. It's not that I think other cultures are all sweetness and light while mine is totally rotten to the core [or vice versa] but I believe trying to learn about other cultures and societies can help re understanding and understand beats ignorance any day. Even if one considers another individual an enemy or vice versa, it's better to know their background and MO than be ignorant of this. Learning other languages can be a key to and I wish I knew more than just English and being somewhat functional in Spanish because even the meanings of individual words can unlock so much of people's culture and history which can open quite a few doors. Music, art, ,cuisine, literature, history, etc. of one's own and others can inspire. I agree that following someone else's prescribed curriculum may not be one's best interest; hence I encourage anyone reading this who is interested to go to the nearest library and read the primary sources re all the above and it can't hurt to study the tenets of the world's major religions to help in one's quest. This isn't something that can happen in a single day or semester but may be a quest of a lifetime. For the record, I'm a proud Christian, native-born US citizen man but that doesn't mean I can't be inspired by learning about how others have lived in this world. -- Submitted By: () on August 12, 2012, 3:47 pm

I was blown away by the look of this game when I first saw it at Chuck E. Cheese. This game was supposed to be the future of video games. There was a huge line that I had to wait in to play it. When I finally got my turn, some monster was coming at Dirk the Daring, so I moved the joystick. Nothing happened. I died. Then a giant bowling ball came at Dirk and I tried to get away. I died. Then another monster came at Dirk. I tried the "sword" button. I died for the final time. I was done with that stupid game. There was a Saturday morning cartoon of Dragon's Lair on at the time and whenever it was on, I'd bring out my Atari joystick and move it around and say to my brother, "Look, Dirk doesn't do what I tell him; it's just like playing the actual game!" -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on August 12, 2012, 12:50 pm

To quote someone who coined it for the 1984 film adaptation of Dune- these three games- DL 1,2 and SPace Ace were all magnificent failures. Flawed - yes, very cool and unique in an era on limited technology- yes, and fun to actually see Disney style and quality animation on slightly more adult material- fights deaths, sexy girls in cheesecake situations made for a teen guy audience!

I'm sure a lot of people would vote Day 1, but at that time there was a good reason to have this system in place. Others might vote the election of 2000, and that has merit because the guy who won the popular vote lost the election. That's bad, but what's worse is when WE THE PEOPLE send an INCUMBENT PRESIDENT back by a quorum of the popular vote, and he still gets sent home after losing the electoral college. This happened when Grover Cleveland first ran for re-election against Benjamin Harrison. Either way, and electoral college running contra to the popular vote (Hayes / Tilden; Bush / Gore) is going to piss people off, but when a sitting President is re-elected by the people only to be smacked down by the electoral college, that's a serious kick in the teeth to the choice of the people. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on August 10, 2012, 2:00 pm

Dragon's Lair Games - Random Topics
I tried playing this several times in one day in 1983. I found it to be nothing more than a quarter-eating machine. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on August 10, 2012, 1:45 pm

David Naughton in their commercials....automatic bone. Hunchback of Notre Dame parody commercial.....boned back! -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on August 10, 2012, 1:43 pm

Doonesbury - Random Topics
It was hilarious when it came back after a two year hiatus during the Reagan years. There we got introduced to characters like "Mr. Butts" (cartoon cigarette character) and "Ron Headrest" (Reagan spoof based on Max Headroom). That was funny stuff, but long gone and forgotten I'm afraid. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on August 10, 2012, 1:38 pm

Dell - Random Topics
In other words, the thing that failed to wreck the careers of Robert Mitchum, Michael Phelps and countless rock stars is giving the Dell dude career issues. That's why people say "legalize it". The punishments rarely fit the so-called "crime". -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on August 10, 2012, 1:22 pm

Dear Abby - Random Topics
Perhaps "Nikki's mom" should be a new random topic. I'll vote "Day 1". -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on August 10, 2012, 1:20 pm

Dallas Cowboys - Random Topics
Day 1. Hated them ever since Staubach to Pearson, and probably would have longer if 1977 hadn't been my first year watching. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on August 10, 2012, 1:13 pm

Crank Calls/Prank Calls - Random Topics
The best prank calls are done by amateurs, not the contrived, pre-recorded, entertainment-oriented nonsense we have today. I did some great ones back in the days of rotary dial, as did my accomplices. Lost art. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on August 10, 2012, 11:04 am

Cracked (magazine) - Random Topics
I read some funny stuff in "Cracked", like their "Star Trek: The Motion Picture" spoof and "The Billy Pluckett Story". Also loved their send-up of a "The Dukes of Hazard / Chips" cross-over. Never boned for me. "Shut ups" were cool, as was "The Cracked Lens". -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on August 10, 2012, 11:02 am

Conspiracy Theories - Random Topics
Boned with 9/11 for me. The conpiracy theories were abounding on line before they even got the fires out. Holocaust denial was bad, but the lack of an internet when that was spawned kept it relegated to "loony tune" status. With 9/11 happening in the communication age, the loony tune population grew exponentially. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on August 10, 2012, 10:58 am

Place made me sick once. Never again. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on August 10, 2012, 10:49 am

Bloom County - Random Topics
I didn't like what they did to Steve Dallas for an extended period after he was kidnapped by feminist aliens. They milked it for too long and made anything involving the character super lame. I know he changed back toward the very end after he got jilted, but it was too little too late. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on August 10, 2012, 10:28 am

B.C. (comic strip) - Random Topics
I guess it was sexist and therefore politically incorrect, but does anyone else remember the advice columnist "Dear Fat Broad"? At some point, I think in the 1980s or 90s, it was changed to "Dear Ms. Know-It-All". Another loss in the war on speech. Caving to pressure to compromise one's artistic integrity is an automatic bone. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on August 10, 2012, 10:13 am

Oh how the mighty have fallen. Ever since his marriage ended a few years ago, his life and career apparently hit the skids -- Submitted By: (stryker73) on August 10, 2012, 8:53 am

I enjoy keeping track of the medal count. I also like seeing how excited the athletes get when they win. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on August 10, 2012, 12:43 am

I still can't believe she jumped out of that plane with the real 007, Sean Connery. lol -- Submitted By: (Jp) on August 9, 2012, 11:10 pm

Cruel Intentions - Movie Series
Sequels caused this to bone. The first wasn't really that good either, but it was at least watchable. -- Submitted By: (Jp) on August 9, 2012, 11:05 pm

Friday - Movie Series
I have to agree with PYLrulz on this one. The first was the best, second was tolerable, and the third was a crap shoot. -- Submitted By: (Jp) on August 9, 2012, 11:01 pm

Archie Comics - Random Topics
I always loved reading Archies and I'm just wondering if they were just giving into political correctness by adding a gay character to the gang. Not that there's anything wrong with it. -- Submitted By: (JayD) on August 9, 2012, 5:50 pm

Boy Meets World - TV Shows
I used to watch this show when I was a kid. Of course I was young at the time, and in those days it was sometimes harder to notice the changes that were made to shows. Since there was no internet, we were pretty much limited to watching one-off re-runs here and there. Now almost 20 years after this show's debut I decided to check back at some of my favorite episodes on Youtube. The first thing that struck me was how drastically the show changed from season to season. The changes are more significant than the average show. It bounced around from being carefree, to feel good, to tragic, to touching. All in all I'd place Boy Meets World in the "generic 90's sit-com" category, but that being said it's still one of the better shows of that caliber. -- Submitted By: (brightsideofthemoon) on August 8, 2012, 1:11 pm

Randy, Randy, Randy- When the police find you "naked and combative" in a crashed Trans Am somewhere on some Texas road... That's when it's high time to swear off the booze. Seriously, dude. -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on August 8, 2012, 12:33 pm

Olympic Games - Random Topics
I agree. I never understood the draw of the Olympics. It hogs up airtime from other things, and it's just an excuse for people to act like a jingoistic asshole. I know that makes me a bad American, but deal with it. -- Submitted By: () on August 8, 2012, 10:09 am

Lost in Space - TV Shows
To Parker Tillman - No, that actually added unexpected character depth to Dr. Smith. Like the movie (which sucked)- The only really good part of that movie was when Dr. Smith misdirected Will - so that he wouldn't see the grave sites of his parents... -- Submitted By: (hbrennan) on August 8, 2012, 8:16 am

Kid Nation - TV Shows
13 episodes is good for me. Pretty sure if they had a second season every kid would be trying to meta-game the show and they'd either keep it in which would just make it seem dumb, or they would try to fakely edit it out and make the kids seem super naive. So never boned at the point it made it to, but I'm pretty sure had a second season occured, some pretty horrible stuff would've gone down. -- Submitted By: (Liva148) on August 7, 2012, 10:41 pm

18 Kids and Counting - TV Shows
A much as I think it's ridiculous to have this many kids, you really can't complain with the way they turn out. ALL of them seem like polite, respectful children who have a heart to serve and I really don't see any problem with people continuing to have kids if they're all going to turn out so well. -- Submitted By: (Liva148) on August 7, 2012, 10:35 pm
