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.

Doors, The - Music Groups
Jp, Depending on which acquaintance one hears from, it seems that Morrison was somewhat on the verge of getting out of the music business and had cut most if not all his ties to the music industry before his [un?]timely death at age 27. Yeah, the music itself stands above other songs from this time [ especially like their rendition of the 1920's Berlin standard 'Whisky Song'- which has the most ludicrous pronunciation of Alabama out there]. However; from all I've heard about Morrison, he seems as though he'd have been a nightmare to have been around if one had been acquainted with him longer than five minutes- regardless of his musical talent. Here's hoping he somehow found his peace. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on October 5, 2011, 2:40 am

The article I read said they're making 8 million a year and would get a pay cut to 4 mil. Not sure where they're getting these numbers from. Anyways, it's hard to feel sorry for all parties involved.

Resident Evil (film) - Movie Series
It's like some sick tradition that movies based on video games must be written by someone who's never actually played them. The best example? The live-action Street Fighter movie (the 1994 flick). They got so much wrong. E. Honda comes from Japan, NOT Hawaii. DJ is not one of M. Bison's lackeys (neither is Zangief!). Dhalsim is NOT a scientist. Blanka's true identity sure as heck is NOT Guile's friend Charlie. Balrog is one of M. Bison's top warriors (NOT one of the heroes). Had they actually played the game (or at least had a Street Fighter fan as an adviser), it could have been half-decent. I've heard the Chun Li movie is worse, but since I haven't seen it, I can't say for sure. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on October 4, 2011, 7:43 pm

Pokemon - TV Shows
SSM that's probably why his Charizard disobeyed him so much, he never truely earned the badges he had. As for BW it sucks. Lv. 90+ Pikachu defeated by Lv. 5 or lower starter was only the beginning. Ash is 10 again. This time he's followed around by a pretty boy chef and a whiney brat who is barely smarter than Ash himself. Like in previous seasons the true main characters (Touya/Hilbert, Touko/Hilda) have yet to make an appearance. I find it hard to believe that Jessie, James, and Meowth are promoted and taken seriously; infact similiar to Kanto after the 1st several episodes they are reverting back to their usual annoying selves. Once again Ash has abandoned his good pokemon and is catching new ones that are not that helpful, esp. that oshawatt that is esp. useless. Basically this whole season (if not series) is crap and must be avoided. Only the 1st two seasons are enjoyable (mostly). -- Submitted By: (Acobjum) on October 4, 2011, 6:44 pm

Resident Evil (film) - Movie Series
The first movie was bad enough. It's obvious that Anderson never bothered to play the games. RE is about suspense, fear, tension, and mystery, not action/adventure. None of the game characters appeared in the 1st one and the sequels butcher the vg cast so badly you actually wish they hadn't appeared. The movies revolve around an overpowered Mary Sue who steals the spotlight from the main characters. She has psychic powers and is able to fist fight Nemesis. That is complete bull! These are some of the worst movies I've ever witnessed and even if it weren't RE and had no mentioning of the zombies/Umbrella/etc. they still would be very bad. -- Submitted By: (Acobjum) on October 4, 2011, 6:21 pm

I still stand by my statement that this show has boned, but I will say that this season, with Ed Helms taking over Steve Carell's role and James Spader joining the cast, the show has a new freshness to it that it has lacked for the last few seasons.

I actually like the movie Private Parts even though many people said it was a sell out. It was laugh out loud funny. In reality I saw him on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno when the other guest were Karen McDougal PMOY and Magic Johnson. The PMOY kept telling Howard to shut up, that she was talking. Howard gave Magic some free advice about Magic's (then new) show - something about not selling out and not letting the network train him to act "white"(?)Magic ridiculed this on his own show the next night and then to make matters worse Howard's "fart" band is supposed to "fart" rhythmically into live mics but is unable to do so evenly,leaving embarrassing moments of silence when someone was supposed to fart.

I saw an opinon poll somewhere recently where one of the Kardashians (Kim, probably) was voted most annoying overexposed celebrity.

I have atleast two Fairuza Balks on my friend list and I can't count the number of people using the names of the Dallas Ewings. I stopped adding when I got friend requests from Carringtons.

I get those types too, plus these: 1) The Overly-Proud Parent - _Everything_ their kids do (including the scatological) is just so precious and cute and has to be shared with the world. 2) The Sad Sack - Everything about their life sucks and they have to post every negative thing the world throws at them. They desperately need your pity and often hint that financial aid wouldn't hurt either. 3) The Overly-Religious - The name of Jesus Christ needs to be invoked in nearly every post. If they have a good day, Jesus needs to be thanked online. If things are going bad (even slightly), they ask for prayers. Some people I know show two or even all three of these traits. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on October 3, 2011, 8:15 pm

G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero (1985) - TV Shows
I've been marathoning G.I. Joe recently and thought I should leave my impressions of it. I know many fans dislike the second season due to Serpentor and Sgt. Slaughter. But there were some great new characters (like Hawk finally making his animated debut) and episodes (Sink the Montana). Even Serpentor got a great origin story (made from DNA of history's greatest tyrants). I wonder if Serpentor would have been received more warmly if he didn't have such a ridiculous costume and name that seemed like a He-Man reject. I think I'd have to agree with Dr. Sarcastor that The Movie was probably the boning point. The show was already straining credibility and that Cobra-La crap was just too much. Cobra Commander's ridiculous origin from The Movie of being a mutated nobleman-scientist of an ancient race of lizard-men from the Himalayas made his comic book origin of being a disgruntled used-car salesman look believable. The less said about the post-Movie episodes done by DiC, the better. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on October 1, 2011, 2:32 am

Dungeons and Dragons - TV Shows
Anyone who hasn't heard it yet should listen to the radio broadcast of the unreleased final episode. I listened to the copy in the DVD set. Some people said that it helped them get on with their lives after they listened to it. I got to watch this show on DVD about 3 years ago. I was very interested to see what this controversial kids show from 1983 was all about. The story pokes fun at some of the Dungeons & Dragons game rules, especially during the first episode. Remembering that this was a kids show it is unrealistic to expect Venger, or our Hereos to kill anybody. Perhaps "A Game of Thrones" would be a better TV show for that. I thought the story unfolded pretty well and revealed its secrets in an interesting way. It did seem choppy at times, or like they didn't spend enough time developing certain characters like Warduke. I loved the way that Venger was a man of his word even through all of his evil. Those that have watched will remember when our heroes miraculously defeat Demo Dragon and thus keep their promise to Venger. Venger is extremely angry and bewildered because he wanted/expected them to die, and can't fathom how they beat the dragon. He mutters and curses but allows them to go free instead of killing them. Venger tells his army that because they did what he asked he must honor his word. We got our first glimpse that Venger might be more than meets the eye and wonder who he really is and how he came to be. The Dungeon Master gives us a frightening clue at the end of that episode. Another good episode was Dragons Graveyard, probably the seminal episode of the whole series. Those who have watched already know this. -- Submitted By: (wilddrawfour) on September 30, 2011, 7:21 pm

Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman - TV Shows
Tough for me to admit but this is probably the best old-west genre media I've ever seen. The town and the people were real and alive to me. The story took place in an "authentic" environment. It was obviously stylized for TV, I'm not claiming that it was a realistic portrayal of life in the old west. I can't quite pinpoint what makes this show so good but I feel like it paid attention to its characters and spent time giving the town a personality too. This show is similar in some ways to Star Wars 4,5 & 6 for making you care about the characters and bringing you into the world with them. -- Submitted By: (wilddrawfour) on September 30, 2011, 6:38 pm

BoneTheFish.com - Websites
I've always liked the political discussion on bonethefish but I do feel the comment approval system is biased in favor of conservatives. What happened to letting anything through? Now comment approval seems to be decided by one or two people who only want one viewpoint heard. -- Submitted By: (wilddrawfour) on September 30, 2011, 6:13 pm

Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band - Music Groups
Jp, here's a fun fact: Bruce didn't like the name "The Boss" because he didn't like his bosses either, but it just stuck -- Submitted By: (tvfan) on September 30, 2011, 2:56 pm

Who, The - Music Groups
When Keith Moon died, this band started their decline. Sure, the next album after his death was pretty good, but it was all downhill from there. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on September 29, 2011, 1:22 pm

STYX - Music Groups
I've always been into the edgier bands from back in the day. However, lately my musical tastes have been changing a bit. But even still, I never really could get into Styx. I hear some of their stuff on the radio but I lose interest. The only thing I'll give them credit for is providing Trey Parker and Matt Stone a nice little gag for Cartman. This also holds true for Asia's Heat of The Moment. LoL -- Submitted By: (Jp) on September 27, 2011, 11:50 pm

Simon and Simon - TV Shows
Isn't amazing how this once-popular series seems to be almost entirely forgotten? Surprising,too, that Gerald McRaney would have the more prominent career after this show. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on September 27, 2011, 1:59 pm

STYX - Music Groups
I don't disagree with you, kingbk. However; I've often thought how 'Mr. Roboto' could have been used as a theme for the original 'Star Wars' trilogy. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on September 27, 2011, 1:49 pm

R.E.M - Music Groups
JP, #1. Yeah, the fact that they were still a band was kind of a surprise to me,too. However; how often do you hear of bands who actually publicly admit they've broken up despite the members having long since gone to greener pastures? [e.g. Despite the fact that Darius Rucker seems to have carved out a rather successful new niche for himself as a country performer for the last few years , Hootie and the Blowfish is still supposed to be an intact alternate rock band]. #2. Most of R.E.M., I can take or leave, some of it I dislike but I do admit liking 'Happy, Shiny People' [the one song the band itself HATES]- mainly because of the contribution of the B-52's Kate Pierson. Believe me, that song has gotten me through more than one rough work day! #3- Getting into the Hall of Fame seems to be a crap shoot so I can't get too worked up about it. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on September 27, 2011, 1:45 pm

Beach Boys, The - Music Groups
Boned when Brian Wilson left the group and they still tried going on as The Beach Boys. Mike Love's huge ego made him so delusional to think that he was the brains behind the group when all the great, creative songs came from Brian. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on September 27, 2011, 1:20 pm

Police - Music Groups
I would say Synchronicity was their boning point. Not that it was a bad album, it wasn't at all, but you could tell by this point that Sting had taken over pretty much all creative control of the band. It doesn't surprise me that this album was almost credited to Sting and the Police and that the band broke up shortly afterwards. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on September 27, 2011, 12:28 pm

REO Speedwagon - Music Groups
Another 70s classic rock band that the 80s transformed for the worse. Listen to their early stuff and it actually rocks out and seems to have some soul. Compare that to the over the top cheese of "Can't Fight This Feeling Anymore" and it's not hard to see why AOR rock started a steep decline around 1985. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on September 27, 2011, 12:24 pm

STYX - Music Groups
When the band went from blue collared hard rock and touching ballads in the 70s to cheesy, silly fantasy/theatrical songs in the 80s. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on September 27, 2011, 12:15 pm

R.E.M - Music Groups
In case you haven't heard REM decided to call it quits. #1. I didn't know they were still around really. #2 So? I never like them in the first place, not one lyric or note. #3 I'm still bitter that somehow they made it into the Hall of Fame. Now, I know there is quite a bit of politics that come into play here, but damn, there are greater bands who haven't been nominated in yet. #4 -- Submitted By: (Jp) on September 26, 2011, 5:57 pm

Starbucks Coffee - Random Topics
Too expensive, too many locations, taste too burnt. Also, seems to be a favorite place for bible thumpers. Everytime I go to a Starbucks to check email or whatever, I'm always surrounded by people talking about the bible or praying together or whatever. Bleh. I'll stick to local coffee shops. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on September 24, 2011, 7:44 pm

Starbucks Coffee - Random Topics
The coffee is headache-inducing as well as overly spendy, and I'm saying that as a Seattle-area resident (and therefore someone who could be considered to be under the collective geographical/cultural onus to like the place). I think it has to do with how they grind and roast the beans - the coffee packs a wallop unless it's "cut" with something else. However, they do make good lattes and hot chocolate. My girlfriend is a non-coffee drinker, so on those occasions when we get Starbucks gift cards (it happens sometimes at work), we use them to get warm-up drinks before going to hockey games: a hot chocolate for her, and that or a latte for me. Since we're using gift cards, the price isn't such a big concern, and since I avoid the coffee itself, I can enjoy the game without a splitting headache. -- Submitted By: (Mythigator) on September 24, 2011, 7:44 am

Operation Repo - TV Shows
The show isn't lying when they say "based on real events". They just use it in a very loose sense. Say they're repoing a white car and the owner happens to be an angry pornstar clown with a flaming machete. The real event here is that they actually did repo a car. It may've been white and the owner was probably angry, but the only 100% factual part is that a car was indeed repossessed. Everything else is (very obviously) scripted. -- Submitted By: (Malph) on September 22, 2011, 8:31 pm

Adventures of Superman, The - TV Shows
I still say the George Reeves version was easily the best of ALL the TV interpretations of the character. Too bad that that legacy [and his entire previous life] has been overshadowed by the still questionable circumstances re his death! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on September 22, 2011, 5:33 pm

Keeping Up Appearances - TV Shows
Instead of boning the fish, it actually improved, particularly when Richard retired and our Rose was replaced by Mary Millar. I would have like to see more of Hyacinth's son, Sheridan. Otherwise a great show, and let's hope the American networks never try to copy it. -- Submitted By: (PrinceJ) on September 22, 2011, 11:23 am
