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.

U2 - Music Groups
I don't know if Bono "has" a swelled head or not, but if the question is whether that has caused U2 to BTF, I say no. If it had, why has the band stuck with him for over 30 years with no lineup changes? Obviously THEY consider him someone they can work with. I don't agree that he's up there with Prince (fired entire first band) DLR (quit Van Halen - possibly fired which means he was a victim of swelled heads not the perp) or Sting (thought he was too groovy for The Police). He hasn't done what those other three did. He recognizes that U2 isn't U2 without Edge, Clayton and Mullen backing him up. They have never disbanded so he could pursue a solo career, or otherwise disbanded and later reformed due to in-fighting. Even The Beatles can't say that. He's never unilaterally kicked any of his bandmates to the curb (Roger Waters anyone?). Does he even have a solo album? Do any of them? His head may be swelled on some topics, but not regarding the other members of his band. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on July 27, 2012, 3:28 pm

I kid you not, I had an English Lit. professor in college who praised Wierd Al to the sky.

First off, the guy doesn't age. He looks exactly the same as he did from the 80s. Secondly, he's got a great mix of clever, funny, and creative lyrics that almost always make you smile and laugh. He might not be as popular as he was in the 80s-90s, but he still puts out some very humorous stuff. Never boned. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on July 26, 2012, 10:55 pm

U2 - Music Groups
Bono doesn't have a swelled head? Are you kidding me? The guy might have the most swelled head of that decade. He's up there with Prince, David Lee Roth and Sting as one of the most egotistical guys of that decade. I'll give him credit for staying married, staying with his band, and putting out good music over the past 30+ years, but to say he doesn't have a swelled head is a little much. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on July 26, 2012, 10:52 pm

Godfather Trilogy - Movie Series
I don't think Part 3 was an "abomination", but I think making it without trying harder to get Robert Duvall to reprise the role of Tom Hagan was. Instead, they cast George Hamilton as Michael's attorney. He's a good actor, but the script gave him almost nothing to do. Tom was a better character as not only Michael's attorney, but also as his de facto step-brother. The way I heard it, only one offer was made to Robert Duvall. When he held out for more money, they didn't make anymore offers. There were already so many characters that couldn't come back either because they were killed off, or died IRL. Why "whack" Tom over money? Did they think a "Godfather" movie wasn't going to gross enough to pay him? It's not like they had to pay Brando again. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on July 26, 2012, 5:34 pm

The first one was great. I knew nothing about the sequels until I voted "Never Boned". I think I stand by that vote though as I doubt Quentin had much involvement with the sequels. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on July 26, 2012, 5:24 pm

Friday the 13th - Movie Series
Originally "Jason Takes Manhattan" was supposed to be called "Jason Takes Manhattan, The Bronx and Staten Island Too", but they decided that title was too long. J/K, but anytime you have a horror film with the main protagonist (antagonist?) "taking Manhattan" be on the lookout for a lot of comic relief. What's next? "Jason Meets David Berkowitz"? -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on July 26, 2012, 5:22 pm

Every Which Way But Loose - Movie Series
A lot of people wanted to watch this at the time. It wasn't like everyone had cable. Most people still had to go out to movies, and Clint Eastwood was a popular ticket fresh off his Dirty Harry and Josey Wales successes. This was slightly more light hearted. I believe the title song was a hit single as well. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on July 26, 2012, 5:12 pm

Escape from New York/Los Angeles - Movie Series
Just about every character in the first one says at least once to Snake "I heard you were dead". I was about 15 when I first saw this, so I didn't think much of it at the time, but when you've seen the film as many times as I have by now you find yourself saying "I heard you were dead" along with the characters. People seeing it for the first time with me get a kick out of that. BTW, how was he supposed to have died? Nobody ever mentions what spawned this rumor, which was obviously greatly exaggerated. BTW, R.I.P. Ernest Borgnine. Not known for this film really, but he was still great in the cabbie role. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on July 26, 2012, 5:10 pm

City Slickers - Movie Series
It wasn't that the sequel was horrible, but it was just OK, and following a classic like the original it was going to be disappointing being "just OK". Lovitz was funny, but Kirby should have been brought back. Where was he supposed to be anyway? The whole "Curly's twin brother" thing seemed contrived. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on July 26, 2012, 4:53 pm

Carrie (1976 film) - Movie Series
Day 1. I'm sure this was a big time thriller in its day, and I'm sure it would still scare a lot of people, but I totally DO NOT BUY that locker room scene with all those girls ganging up on Carrie, chanting "plug up your leak" like crazed jackals, just because she got her period and didn't have a tampon. I don't think that would happen in a ghetto much less where it was depicted. I found that more offensive than the blood and violence, because it insulted my intelligence. Was there bullying in the 70s? Yeah, I just think there were certain lines they didn't cross even then. NEVER heard of a girl getting bullied about her period....NEVER! Probably because most girls empathize about that sort of thing. That boned this franchise for me. How good could the sequels be if the original insulted my intelligence like that? -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on July 26, 2012, 4:47 pm

Bad News Bears, The - Movie Series
Remakes are automatic bones, but in this case the remake factor is blown out of the water by the "Go To Japan" factor. It was an absolutely dreadful movie that all the basic aspects of boning the fish including: Exit Stage Left (Tanner Boyle; Timmy Lupus; Amanda / Carmen Ronzonni) Puberty (Pretty much everyone) New Kid In Town / Cousin Oliver Syndrome (Ahmid's kid brother; and there's a Jesus freak on the team now?) Same character; Different Actor (Matthau begat Devane begat Curtis; Musical Engelbergs) Even without all of the above, the plot was awful. Tony Curtis' character was impossible to like. There was no "game" other than the sand lot one they played at the end (outcome unknown). This was effectively the movie the "Bears" didn't need to make. The reboot may have been bad (I honestly didn't see that), but at least it was based on the original movie and characters. "Go To Japan" was just awful. Breaking Training wasn't AS good as the first, but it was good enough, definitely funny, had a feel good ending and cameos by Bob Watson, JR Richard and Enos Cabell. That was a decent sequel. Go To Japan was not. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on July 26, 2012, 12:10 pm

Back to the Future - Movie Series
"I'll have a Pepsi Free." The owner of the soda shop's reaction to that was so funny back when most people would have gotten that joke.

Of course they could read this site and learn it. :) -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on July 26, 2012, 12:00 pm

Austin Powers - Movie Series
It boned at the very beginning of the 2nd movie when Vanessa / Elizabeth Hurley was suddenly revealed to be a "fem bot". How was that even possible when Austin supposedly worked with her mother before he was frozen? Her mother didn't know her "daughter" was a fem bot? She didn't recall not having given birth to her? What a cop out! Then they bring back Number 2 / Robert Wagner after we saw him burned to death in the 1st film. How did he survive unscathed, and why did Dr. Evil take him back? Just bizarre discontinuity. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on July 26, 2012, 11:54 am

Arthur - Movie Series
Arthur 2 wasn't as funny. The plot was recycled from the first movie, with the same psycho trying to blackmail Arthur into marrying his daughter. It also suffered from "sappy ending" syndrome. The actress who played Arthur's grandmother was old and ill by this time and was only seen sitting down. Watching her get hot over her "trainer" was something I could also do without. Too many forced jokes. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on July 26, 2012, 11:44 am

Who, The - Music Groups
While Keith Moon's death was the "boning moment", The Who still managed to put out a few "classics" from the Kenny Jones era. "Another Tricky Day" and "Eminence Front" still sound great. I didn't like either album really, but Face Dances was better than It's Hard. At least Face had some decent album tracks ("You"; "The Quiet One"), and some decent singles ("You Better You Bet"; "Don't Let Go The Coat"). It's Hard had "Athena", which charted higher than Eminence Front and actually made the billboard top 40, but was a dog as a song. It's rarely heard anymore. Hits don't always equal classics. Funny thing is in their videos from those two albums they seemed old to me at the time, but watching them now I realize how young they really were, even still. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on July 25, 2012, 4:30 pm

Wham! - Music Groups
They did suck from the start, but that's just my opinion, not the reason they boned. They boned because they were (wait for it) yet another 80s act that made two (three?) albums before the most popular one's swelled head threw the whole thing under the bus. I guess in George Michael's defense, he was right at first. He was successful as a solo act, and seemingly to a far greater extent than "Wham!" was, but then "it" happened. Now I've heard whisperings about a Wham! reunion. Don't need one myself, but it would be pretty funny. I guess once most women realized they couldn't have George his music didn't sound as good. BTW, the original name for this band in the states was "Wham UK", which was done to avoid confusion with another US-based "Wham" that was around back then. I actually thought the original name sounded cooler than just plain "Wham!" -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on July 25, 2012, 4:19 pm

Weird Al Yankovic - Music Groups

Another band killed, sorry I mean BONED since they insisted on continuing, by swelled heads and overbearing synthesizer tracks in the 80s. Go figure.

Guess I'm in the minority here, but this group never boned. How many bands formed in the 1980s, the decade of swelled heads, one album wonders and synthesizers taking over bands' sounds, have been through ZERO lineup changes and still manage to put out good material after over 3 decades together? Of all the 80s groups I've commented on, U2 is the first one I've been able to say that about, and I'm up to "U". -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on July 25, 2012, 3:49 pm

When MTV was still young, in the early 1980s, it seemed they would show the "MTV Concert" version of "Magic Power" like it was going out of style.

Not a one hit wonder. "Jailbreak" and "Whiskey In The Jar" were also hits. Who says "hits" make the band anyway? How many "hits" did Pink Floyd have in the US? Two?

Stray Cats - Music Groups
Swelled head syndrome of course! This was, after all, an 80s group! What else could have ruined them? Only difference this time is it wasn't the lead singer who had it. Well, he did, but no worse than the others. Between Brian Setzer thinking he was better off on his own, and the ludicrously pretentious "Phantom, Rocker & Slick" endeavor with their overplayed single (how could it not be? it was, after all, an 80s hit song!) "Men Without Shame", the Stray Cats became yet another early-80s endeavor that started out with so much promise only to give their fans the shaft in the end. Yes, I know they've reunited more times that I've had hot dinners. They still boned because few cared anymore by then. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on July 25, 2012, 1:50 pm

Stevie Wonder - Music Groups
Musically.....never, but I could understand if someone wanted to vote "hair care". Hard to hold that against a guy who can't see himself though. Also can't believe nobody voted "Ebony & Ivory", but that's more like "boning after the fact" since it was a number one song for umpteen weeks in a row when it was new. It's only in the last decade or two that many of the same people have decided they hate it. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on July 25, 2012, 1:39 pm

Stevie Nicks - Music Groups
As a soloist? Day 1! I like her work in 70s-era Fleetwood Mac, but her solo stuff all happened after her voice started sounding less like the girl who sang "Rhiannon" and more like a nasal raspy twang. Even her later Mac songs like "Gypsy" were pretty bad. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on July 25, 2012, 1:35 pm

Steppenwolf (band) - Music Groups
After Goldy McJohn was thrown out of the band they tanked. The stuff they released in the 80s and 90s, with Steppenwolf nothing more than a label for John Kay, was very subpar, and the lineup Kay toured with during those years seemed low budget. When I saw them in 1991, they didn't even have a bassist. Keyboardist Michael Wilk was using his synth (y'all know how much I love an overbearing synth!) to double as a bass. Very artificial sounding, especially when bass is my main instrument since high school. Also, Wilk is no Goldy on keyboards. Nobody is. Goldy had the sound and look that helped to define Steppenwolf. His piano and organ playing was an integral part of Steppenwolf's sound. Give "Cat Killer" and the full version of "For Ladies Only" a listen if you want examples of his talent being showcased. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on July 25, 2012, 11:59 am

He was also the one who demanded the tickets to the Police reunion be raised to a price that a lot of people couldn't afford. I also agree that besides some really early work, his solo stuff was bland and boring. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on July 25, 2012, 11:49 am

Snoop Dogg - Music Groups
I find it amazing that this guy gets a pass after a murder acquittal (which of course means he's totally innocent of any wrongdoing), but Joe Paterno, who was never charged with anything, is a pariah forever more based SOLELY on the opinions of Louis Freeh who never interviewed Paterno. Just saying. Regardless of whether he's innocent or not, wasn't it in questionable taste to make a video depicting the man's funeral while he was awaiting trial for killing him? Maybe Paterno should have mocked Sandusky's victims in a video. Then he'd be a "cool bro" too. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on July 25, 2012, 11:45 am

Haircut One Hundred - Music Groups
All too common story in the 1980s. New wave band makes one album that's pretty good. They find success with it. Then their egocentric tool of a lead singer (Nick Heyward in this case) decides he's bigger than the band and goes out on his own, on the "strength" of ONE successful LP that he didn't do alone. Nick Heyward gets my vote for "biggest jerk of the 80s", not just for flushing his own music career by making this ill-advised selfish move, but for taking his former band down with him. Let's not even get into the many fans who were hoping for another album out of this group and got nothing. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on July 25, 2012, 11:27 am

Guess Who, The - Music Groups
One of my favorite groups, but did they ever BONE! What's worse is they weren't totally forthright about it. I could deal with the numerous lineup changes up and through 1975, as long as Burton Cummings was still out front. The quality of their music, and their ability to play, was still quite good. However, once Cummings departed and albums continued to be made under The Guess Who name, which sounded NOTHING like The Guess Who, they really let their fans down. In the 1990s, I purchased a CD called "Lonely One", which I believed was a Guess Who reunion CD. No lineup was listed on the back (red flag right there). I open this thing up and notice only the original bassist (Jim Kale) and drummer (Gary Peterson) played on it. No Burton. No Randy Bachman. No Donnie MacDougall. Nobody who's name you'd recognize. Then I listened to it and it was a sorry excuse for a synth pop CD. Nothing anyone would consider to be "classic rock". Not a single redeeming track. I wrote the fly-by-night record company (Intersound) a nasty letter accusing them of false advertising. I couldn't unload that paper weight fast enough. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on July 25, 2012, 11:19 am

American Restoration - TV Shows
I used to love this show, because it showed an interesting behind the scenes show that informed viewers how some amazing restoration work got done on interesting pieces of american history. Lately, once Rick married that lady on the show, it's all fluff about Rick, Tyler, and his new step son Brettley and his new wife. The last episode I saw, they didn't show a single other person in the shop or a single actual step in any restoration process. In fact, they had a customer drop off a Kidillac pedal car from the 50s, then cut to a commerical, and after the commercial, the customer came back and picked it up. What was the point of showing that? I love Rick and his shop, but unfortunately, I don't the show is worth watching any more. They've lost sight of why people like me were interested in watching. -- Submitted By: (egbluesuede) on July 24, 2012, 8:36 pm

Sex Pistols - Music Groups
Their ONE album was good, but what made them bone for me (hyped in the press) was finding out that Syd Vicious was little more than a drug-addled prop. Even on "Never Mind The Bollocks" his predecessor, Glenn Matlock, played most of the bass tracks. Not sure to what extent, if at all, Syd managed to slip into the mix. Meanwhile, he's credited on the album as a full member of the band with no mention of Matlock at all. From a fan's point of view, that's fraud! As for the reunion, why NOT get Glenn Matlock? That's more of a true reunion that having Syd up there would be (obviously Syd can't perform, but even if he could). He actually played on their album and was available, so why get a stand in? You got the original Pistols live, and you're complaining? -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on July 24, 2012, 4:54 pm

Sammy Hagar - Music Groups
He had a successful solo career. Why did he give that up to be a lame replacement for David Lee Roth in a band that had already boned? Yes, Van Halen actually boned before Sammy joined when they latched onto the lame 80s trend of letting the synth take over the band (i.e. "Jump"; "I'll Wait"). -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on July 24, 2012, 4:46 pm

Saga - Music Groups
Whoever was supposed to promote this band and their albums did such a terrible job. How "Wind Him Up" never took off is beyong me. "Heads or Tails" was another record that had some cool songs and videos that were played in MTV's power rotation briefly then sank without a trace. I don't think they've ever matched the success of "On The Loose". That said, they apparently have soldiered on for decades, with Michael Sadler leaving in the late 2000s. Why would they keep going without the undeniable voice of the band when they've had one hit ever and that was decades ago? People say the Stones should hang it up. Saga is long past that point. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on July 24, 2012, 4:40 pm

Rush - Music Groups
I voted 1980s, but really they boned when they stopped working with Terry Brown as co-producer. After "Signals", the last album to be co-produced by Brown, that 1980s trend of the synthesizer taking the band over kicked in, as can be heard on "Grace Under Pressure" and to an even greater extent on "Power Windows". The synth had always been a presence in their music, but on later records it tended to "shout down" the rest of the instruments. If the album doesn't say "Produced by Rush and Terry Brown" I don't bother. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on July 24, 2012, 4:36 pm

run dmc - Music Groups
Like "Quiet Riot", this "ensemble" also had to rely on someone else's tune (Aerosmith's "Walk This Way"), complete with guest vocal by Steve Tyler, to break through to the mainstream. Day 1. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on July 24, 2012, 4:24 pm

Rolling Stones, The - Music Groups
The song "She Was Hot" off "Undercover" was a good one they did after "Start Me Up". Unfortunately, "Undercover of The Night" was a much bigger hit off that same album. Someone high up must have been on the sauce. "She Was Hot" was a MUCH better song! -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on July 24, 2012, 4:21 pm

Rihanna - Music Groups
What happened with Chris Brown wasn't BDSM gone wrong. He beat the crap out of her in a limo during an argument. There is a difference between consensual, albeit strange, sex acts and a non-consensual beatdown that leaves a woman with facial bruises. Personally, I think Rihanna sucks. I wouldn't spend five minutes listening to her cheesy songs, and I think anyone who goes around publicly discussing the weird sex acts they like is nothing less than a "look at me" exhibitionist attention whore, but I don't draw any comparisons between her sex life and her getting beat up. Chris Brown is old enough to know the difference too. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on July 24, 2012, 4:15 pm

They had another popular song called "Pretty Poison". I didn't know it by name when I first saw it, but after downloading it I recognized the tune. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on July 24, 2012, 3:49 pm

Quiet Riot - Music Groups
They "dared" to make a heavy metal video in the early 80s? What were Judas Priest, Motley Crue, Iron Maiden, Fastway, AC/DC and Krokus doing? Truth is Quiet Riot couldn't make it on the strength of their own songs so they had to rely on Slade's. Case and point, two of their three (four?) charting singles were Slade songs. What's worse is their success with Slade's music spawned a Slade reunion, so we all got to hear new music from that crappy for 1980s-era radio stations to play ad nauseum. In that respect, Quiet Riot boned enough for two artists. It's a shame they didn't try to rely more on their own material, as I think "Bang Your Head" is better than either of the Slade songs they did. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on July 24, 2012, 3:41 pm

Queen - Music Groups
When synthesizers began to take over their music. "Radio Gaga" (I think "Lady" stole her name from that) is just awful. While "One Vision" (from the "Iron Eagle" soundtrack) was an improvement, and returned to their rock roots to some extent, parts of it are still inundated with synth.....the introduction and the bridge mainly. Innuendo was an OK album, but depressing. Obviously Freddie knew he was sick while recording that. So sad. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on July 24, 2012, 3:33 pm

Quarterflash - Music Groups
Hated them! What's worse is that MTV didn't seem to be aware that any other band existed back in those days, constantly playing their TWO (eventually three) videos. One of them was a live one, which only doubles the annoyance when you can't stand the group in the first place. Something about Rindy Ross always annoyed me. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on July 24, 2012, 3:24 pm

Prince - Music Groups
OK, so am I to believe NOBODY thinks Prince sucked from Day 1? NOBODY? I can think of several people right off the bat just from my HS circle of friends. There has never been anything about this guy's music I found appealing. Annoying effeminate voice superimposed over electronically contrived music. Yeah, I'll spend my money on that.....when doves cry or when pigs fly, whichever comes first. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on July 24, 2012, 3:11 pm

Police - Music Groups
The funny thing is I loved The Police, but I could never stand Sting on his own. I find his solo stuff boring as hell, so his leaving was the boning point because Sting on his own does not = Sting with The Police. The reunion tour was a bone too. I enjoyed seeing The Police again, but not the lame parents who had to bring their kids (how many like The Police?) to it, making it one of those "family friendly or else" deals. At one point toward the end of the concert a whiff of pot smoke came up from the level beneath us at Giants Stadium, and the security came running down between sections trying to sniff out the "perpetrator" with these gestapo-like ultra-concerned looks on their faces as if to say "MY GOD! SOMEONES SMOKING WEED AT A CONCERT!" That was when concerts started to become a thing of the past for me. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on July 24, 2012, 3:06 pm

Pink Floyd - Music Groups
Another difference between The Wall and The Final Cut, is Rick Wright. Even though he was already fired from the band, he played on The Wall and the ensuing tour as a session player (and actually made more money as a session player than the remaining band members individually did). "The Final Cut" had no Rick Wright involvement at all. However, I agree with Waters' taking over the band as the boning moment. If you listen to any album from "Saucerful" through "Wish", what makes them great is not only the diversity of songwriters, but the songwriting collaborations (One of These Days; Echoes; Shine On; Time). These were gone by the time "Animals" and "The Wall" came out. Good albums, but really Gilmour has a better singing voice than Waters, who always sounds sarcastic, so if he's dominating the record, it grates after a while. Gilmour's voice was another factor missing from "The Final Cut" save for part of "Not Now John". -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on July 24, 2012, 2:57 pm

Pat Benatar - Music Groups
When she came out with the "Get Nervous" album. Only the title track (aka "Anxiety") was any good, and that was more like a novelty song than a traditional Pat Benatar rocker. That album was bad, but it was all downhill after that with songs like "Love Is A Battlefield" and "Sex As a Weapon". Pat just didn't rock anymore and seemed to only want to do synth pop with depressing lyrical themes. Some of the videos she came out with during this perios were especially bad. Who remembers that stereotypical Mexican dude (depicted as a lecherous lowlife....of course!), complete with gold tooth, from the "Love is a Battlefield" vid? I don't cry "racism" about a lot, but that seemed racist to me. I remember a song she did after this called "True Love". It was passable, but jazzy, still not what I remember Pat doing in the late 70s and early 80s. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on July 24, 2012, 2:42 pm

Lady Gaga - Music Groups
I find it interesting that she lists Freddie Mercury as an inspiration. Meanwhile decades before Lady Gaga appears on the scene, Queen released a hit single called "Radio Gaga". Perhaps Freddie Mercury isn't just an inspiration, but a source of plagiarism. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on July 24, 2012, 10:43 am

Kansas - Music Groups
They boned when Steve Walsh was replaced by John Elefante, and they started doing dreck like "Play The Game Tonight". Walsh eventually returned, but by that time the damage was done. Violinist Robbie Steinhardt, a big part of Kansas' distinctive sound, had already left as well. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on July 24, 2012, 10:15 am

Eric Clapton - Music Groups
The fact that he wrote "Layla" as a way to steal George Harrison's wife away from him is kind of crazy. The fact that George Harrison didn't even care and that he stayed good friends with Clapton afterwards is even crazier. He boned when he cleaned himself up and turned into a soft rock staple. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on July 24, 2012, 10:12 am

Jeferson Airplane - Music Groups
"We Built This City" shouldn't even be a category for THIS endeavor. That was "The Starship", which had all of ONE founding Jefferson Airplane member left in it. No Jorma Kaukonen. No Jack Cassady. No Marty Balin. No Papa John Creech. No Paul Cantner, and on and on. Seriously, Jefferson Starship could maybe be included here up and through the last album with Paul Cantner involvement, but including The Starship? That's just not fair. It's not the rest of JA's fault Grace Slick couldn't say no to a paycheck. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on July 23, 2012, 4:38 pm

J. Geils Band, The - Music Groups
You may not "think" they ever boned, but they did, even though it wasn't their fault. Like so many other bands in the 1980s, they were victims of "swelled head syndrome" and Peter Wolfe has that (present tense) bad, as to this day he has never admitted leaving the band was a shot in the foot. Have you ever heard "Concealed Weapons", from the one album they did after Wolfe left? EL BONO! If you heard that song without knowing it was J. Geils, you'd never guess it was them, not just because of Seth Justman's vocals, but also because it's completely non-reminiscent of J. Geils' style of music. In other words, they were still under contract, so they had to do "something". Why not phone it in? Not as good as "Centerfold"? "I Do" (the live version) puts "Concealed Weapons" to shame! -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on July 23, 2012, 4:30 pm

Hall and Oates - Music Groups
I think in the 80s, around when they did "Maneater". After that it seemed like every single they released rocketed up the charts and was overplayed accordingly. In fact, the 1980s the decade of overplayed hit songs. That's probably why "That 80s Show" didn't work out. It was the decade itself that sucked, and nobody wants to watch a show about a decade that sucked. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on July 23, 2012, 4:18 pm

Duran Duran - Music Groups
Boned in the late 80s, when new wave had long died out, yet Duran Duran was hanging on to their former MTV glory with subpar songs like "I Don't Want Your Love" and "All She Wants." "Rio" and "Seven and the Ragged Tiger" were by far and away their best albums. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on July 23, 2012, 3:04 pm

CSI Miami - TV Shows
People say it was when Jesse Cardoza was on when the show went downhill. I beg to differ. I believe it was when he was written out to make room for Eric Delko to return. At first, I was incredulous of a show as old as this bringing in a new guy. But to my amazement, his character was good. Unlike the others who need Horatio to hold their hand, he doesn't; in the episode, Count me out, when he and Walter went into a meth lab which Horatio discovered was booby trapped but couldn't warn them cause they shut off their cellphones. But Jesse saw it and handled it on his own. I had hoped that the show would have an episode wherein Horatio was not available so Jesse was placed in charge. And I think he would have done well. As i said the only reason they let him go was because Adam Rodriguez who played Eric wanted to come back. Shows allowing former cast mates to return usually means the end of a show. Look at Judging Amy when former show regular Dan Futterman returned and his replacement, Kevin Rahm was written out, the show only lasted one season. How about Little House when Victor French who played Mr. Edwards when the show began came back. But to be fair, I'm sure the departure of Michael Landon may have been a factor too. And how about Bonanza when former cast member, David Canary returned? But to be fair again, I'm Dan Blockers' death was a major factor. -- Submitted By: (rony) on July 23, 2012, 12:15 pm

Trapper John, M.D. - TV Shows

Grateful Dead - Music Groups
The most annoying thing about The Grateful Dead is not the music, the drug use, the lineup changes, even the deaths. It's the deadheads! I went to one Grateful Dead concert ever, and probably would have enjoyed it a lot more if these idiot groupies that would probably follow this band into a prison camp, wouldn't feel the need to sing along with every tune en masse. Worse yet, I'm positive I witnessed a minor child, shy of ten years old, under the influence of psychedelics. I like the Dead's music. The mentality they breed is another story. Last time I saw Bob Weir I was frisked going in. So much for the hippie concepts of peace and freedom. They're too worried OBL is out to get them. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on July 23, 2012, 11:50 am
