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.

Mosquitoes are the most dangerous and deadliest animal on Earth. Not just against people (malaria, dengue fever, encephalitis, yellow fever, West Nile virus), but also animals. They infect dogs and cats (and other animals) with heart worms, among other diseases. I hate mosquitoes. You can't wipe them out, all you can do is keep them at bay with citronella and OFF! products. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on June 2, 2011, 12:57 pm

Snuggy - Random Topics
I don't hate or dislike the Snuggy. It makes wearers look like wizards. Where I live, it would be unthinkable to wear a Snuggy AND cover up with a blanket when you go to bed, unless your AC is at the coldest setting.

Real Time with Bill Maher - TV Shows
I understand giving the devil his due. Though Hitler was a great artist, it doesn't excuse that he was an evil man who killed millions. It's one thing if Bill Maher simply said the hijackers committing suicide wasn't cowardly...but he turns around and calls the American soldiers cowards! He has no respect at all for the very people who risk their lives so he can spew poison against them and various other people (Sarah Palin, etc.) while standing up for the people trying to take his freedoms--and his very life--away from him. It's not hard to see why he's called the "Jane Fonda of the Iraq War". -- Submitted By: (Robert) on June 2, 2011, 12:48 pm

Maskdt is correct: The mosquito has killed far more humans - indeed an order of magnitude more - than rats ever thought of doing. Besides, if it weren't for rats, the hero of the movie Willard would have had to kill his enemies with an army of gerbils. And the Deftones would have had to rename one of their more memorable songs "Squirrels!Squirrels!Squirrels!"

Lance Armstrong - Celebrities
Let me get this straight: so the guy cheats, both in his profession and in his personal life, yet gets a pass because he had cancer and won a bunch of major races in cycling? So, to put it in perspective, if Barry Bonds had some life-threatening disease of some sort, people would be more sympathetic to his career, his accomplishments and would largely ignore the fact that the guy is a big douche? In large part, that's what has happened to Lance Armstrong. The guy is a lying, cheating douche, but since he won a bunch and had a disease while doing it for a part of his career, he's protected from getting any type of criticism. Gotcha. What a crock. And thank God that bracelet fad from the mid 2000s has by and large gone away. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on June 1, 2011, 9:07 am

.....and now we know he WAS juiced after all. As far back as his first Tour de France win. And for every one after that. A cheating, lying lowlife scumbag who happily worked with a trainer (Michele Ferrari) who is for all practical purposes a criminal. A guy who lectured us on all the drug tests he passed, even as he knew those passed tests were the result of good old-fashioned bribery. Armstrong's entire career should have an asterisk next to it. However, he is only one of hundreds of cyclists, going back more than a century, who have sought an advantage through the wonderful world of chemicals, and in that respect it's silly to single him out for special contempt. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on June 1, 2011, 2:14 am

Saw - Movie Series
Unpopular as the opinion may be, I found Saw I-III to be very engaging thrillers with a nice dose of social commentary and character study. The series came close to boning the fish with part IV's change in writers, introducing a dull reason for testing the protagonist, a random replacement for Jigsaw, and mediocre at absolute best plot resolutions. Part V was a huge jumping point by confirming said plot points null and void for good and introducing even less inspired social commentary. Saw VI was a step up, but far from a masterpiece, and "3D" was just lazy in every possible way thanks to the divergent story going from IV, which V solidified. -- Submitted By: (MrBriggsInc) on June 1, 2011, 12:26 am

Radio - Random Topics
There's nothing special or unique about radio anymore. It used to be that every city had their own shows or personalities, but now with huge conglomerations owning multiple stations, the local flavor is largely gone. In favor there is the illusion that it's local, when it's really produced in New York or Los Angeles. Add to that all stations play about five songs an hour plus tons of commercials and stations have a playlist of about ten songs total and you have many reasons why now I just take my iPod and used that for my music these days. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on May 31, 2011, 9:04 pm

Real Time with Bill Maher - TV Shows
I think Maher's comment about the hijackers was a little more nuanced than it's been credited with being. "Courageous" need not equate to "good". Hitler was a courageous soldier in World War 1. Howard Unruh, who murdered 13 people in 12 minutes in New Jersey in 1949, was a courageous soldier in World War 2. Benedict Arnold had considerable personal courage during the Revolution, prior to his decision to commit treason. Maher wasn't saying the hijackers were good guys, only that it takes a certain amount of balls to do what they did. I don't happen to agree with him on that, as their belief in their impending martyrdom (with all its attendant sexual delights) amounted to a sort of self-delusion that replaced any conventional sense of courage as we recognize it - but I don't fault Maher for seeing things differently. I do agree with most of you, however, that he is an utterly obnoxious asshole. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on May 31, 2011, 8:02 pm

Firefly - TV Shows
I first found out about Firefly when the Science Channel (NOT the Sci-Fi channel) began re-running the episodes in their proper order in March 2011. This is the first time where I remember liking a pilot episode better than the rest of the series. The world that the pilot episode created seemed so authentic and alive. The rest of the episodes got away from the feeling of being emersed in another world but they were still plenty good. When i watched the pilot I didn't know it was the pilot, I turned the show on a few minutes late and I was imagining that the ship must be on hard times to have to start accepting passengers. I wondered about their life before this episode and what it would be like afterwards. I was shocked when the captain explained that the ambasador was really a whore, and that without a liscensed companion (whore) the ship would not be welcome to dock on many planets. I knew then that I was in some strange magical world gone wrong, so different and yet not so unlike my own. Good show, too bad is got an early death. Shows like this make me want to write more to the story line. -- Submitted By: (wilddrawfour) on May 31, 2011, 1:58 pm

Elmo - Random Topics
So someone submitted Elmo as a random topic. Well, Lisa Simpson has her own topic, why not Elmo? What can best be said about Elmo? He ruined Sesame Street. Lisa's motto is "I am always right", but Elmo's motto is: "PAY ATTENTION TO ME!" Who's more annoying? I say Elmo, and here are some reasons. 1: Because he's front and center when it comes to Sesame Street merchandise. For Simpsons merchandise, it's usually Homer or Bart, not Lisa. 2: In most situations, you can ignore Lisa's soap-boxing, and she's mostly ignored by the other characters. You can't really do the same for Elmo, who demands your attention for the last 15-20 minutes of Sesame Street. The added bonus? This doesn't stop Elmo from appearing in the first 40-45 minutes of the episode, usually with Abby Kadabby and Baby Bear. 3: Lisa doesn't put her name in every sentence. Elmo says "Elmo this" and "Elmo that" when talking about himself. 4: Elmo ruined Sesame Street. I know I said that before, but it's really that important. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on May 31, 2011, 12:15 pm

I have, and they probably HAVE called back sometime later in spite of it. One company calls almost every day at about 6:15 p.m., in spite of the things I tell the rep on the rare occasions I answer the phone. (It's my bank, or rather the massive corporation that owns my bank; they want to offer me a home equity line of credit, despite my never having applied for one. They always mispronounce my name too. Sometimes they will also offer me a service I already have with them, which tells me that the various departments of the corporation are not communicating with each other very well - or, more likely, that they just don't give a shit. The first dozen times they called, I politely asked them not to call me any more. That was at least fifty calls ago.) -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on May 30, 2011, 3:57 pm

Lisa Simpson - Random Topics
I haven't watched the Simpsons in some time to be honest. As for Bart being a jerk, remember the vacation episode where Bart embarrassed Lisa in front of the new friends she made. He did it because he was jealous of her, he felt she was a nerd and was faking being cool or, I dunno, some other reason that seemed logical at the time but was in reality stupid. Granted, he felt genuinely bad when he realized he'd hurt her. Yes, he took action to fix things but it still, his initial actions were wrong. Or, in the Thanksgiving episode where Bart ruined Lisa's centrepiece, didn't care and got all upset when the adults yelled at time. He eventually ran away, still not seeing the error of his ways. It wasn't until Lisa finally sat him down and talked him that he saw it from her point of view, realized what a jerk he'd been and apologized. Granted, teaching someone to not do bad things out of 'how would you feel if someone did that to you?' is worlds better then making them not do it out of fear of someone retaliating. And yes, Lisa also felt terrible when Bart ran away. IIRC, feeling that it wasn't worth losing her brother over a centrepiece, even when he was in the wrong. In the Science Fair episode, remember that Lisa did make her experiment "Is my brother dumber then a Hamster?". Although Bart did ruin her previous experiment, so, he kinda deserved it. Also remember in the episode where Bart lost out on the trip the chocolate factory, Lisa was smug about Bart missing out on the bus and even felt he deserved to miss out on the trip. Her attitude was it was the only way he'll learn. I don't recall him doing anything to her in that episode. One thing I've noticed about Lisa vs Bart. When Bart is the villain, it's usually more sibling rivalry stuff. The kinda stuff one looks back at as an adult and wants to smack themselves for doing. I think part of the issue with Lisa is that we're supposed to sympathize with Bart, even when he's a jerk. So, when he's a jerk, we cringe at how he can be such a jerk. However, they don't glorify it. They take the attitude that he's being a jerk and it's wrong. With Lisa, they've turned her into the annoying teenager (even though she's a kid) that's learned a bit about environmental stuff etc. that demands we do things the way she think is right. She doesn't take into consideration that if changing things for the better were so easy and worked just as well as the bad for the environment ways that we'd have all done it by now. However, as I've said before and want to elaborate, Lisa is also the victim here. They're using her as a puppet for those views. Btw, is there any way to get paragraphs working? Posts would look much better if they weren't all one big block of text. -- Submitted By: (ExplodingConsole) on May 30, 2011, 3:54 pm

Once 2pac and Notorious were killed in the late 90's, the creativity, heart and soul disappeared. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on May 30, 2011, 12:59 pm

Man vs. Food - TV Shows
I love this show. It introduces to new restaurants I've never thought of trying before and Adam has a positive, fun attitude while hosting the show. I'm sure the health problems he's had since hosting aren't good, but I always find myself cheering him on. Never boned. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on May 30, 2011, 12:54 pm

Don Bluth - Random Topics
Looking at his filmography, I think you may be right. His last great movie was All Dogs Go to Heaven (1989). His final film was Titan A.E. (2000). We really need more traditionally done movies. Compare one of Bluth's 1980s movies to the dime-a-dozen CGI movies of today and see for yourself. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on May 30, 2011, 11:35 am

Though I'm not a fan of Howard Stern (I don't hate him), I commend him for doing that on 9/11. They needed a shoulder to cry on, and he was there to provide it. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on May 30, 2011, 11:12 am

Lisa Simpson - Random Topics
People still watch because...I don't know. I stopped watching regularly around 2000, vowing never to watch a new episode again after "That 90s Show". You know, I did some deep thinking after reading these comments. I come to the conclusion that maybe it's not Lisa we hate, but instead, we hate what she's become. As ExplodingConsole pointed out, Bart can be a jerk too. After ruining her babysitting service, Bart apologized, and I remember thinking, "That's nice, but saying you're sorry isn't going to bring back Lisa's babysitting service." But all was forgiven when she got two calls asking for her help. Before that, Bart ruined her science fair project (I know, who can resist throwing a tomato that size at the principal's butt when he's bending over?) then hijacked her hamster experiment and took first prize. I felt bad for her. When an aptitude test pegged her as a homemaker, she went bad, then stole the teachers' editions. Bart had a great chance to turn his life around, but took the fall so Lisa could have a bright future. This was possibly the biggest sacrifice Bart ever made for Lisa, and I felt bad for him. But at least Bart becomes chief justice of the supreme court when he grows up. Lisa's not the only one who's taken a turn for the worse: while she's gotten self-righteous, Bart went from a menace with some good in him to a jerk who's almost as stupid as Homer. Homer's gone from a dopey dad who at least cared for his family to a selfish jerk and a complete idiot. The reason Lisa's singled out is because her holier-than-thou attitude is more annoying than stupidity. Nobody likes a mouthpiece character, which includes Brian from Family Guy. We want to be entertained, not told what to think! Marge and Maggie are the only ones who haven't really changed. For now... And PYLrulz, you're right: I think the only time South Park refused to see the other side of the issue--and rightfully so--was the NAMBLA episode. When the leader says he "learned something today", Kyle replies: "Dude..you tried to have sex with children!" And Stan says something like, "We're all for tolerance, but **** you!" -- Submitted By: (Robert) on May 30, 2011, 11:02 am

Rap (music) - Random Topics
There is no denying that the genre has been important in terms of its influence on other musical forms, and for that I appreciate it. In fact, it's spawned some interesting hybrids like rap metal and rapcore. But I agree with most of you that when the artists set aside the social commentary and just became all about drugs and guns and pimping and the shallowest sort of materialism, rap lost its heart. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on May 29, 2011, 10:35 pm

Lost in Space - TV Shows
tsbrownie, Truth be told that ep was TYPICAL rather than an anomaly. Although, I looked it up and found out that the head 'biker' was none other than Daniel J. Travanti[ Lt. Frank Furillo on "Hill Street Blues"].On a positive note, I also discovered that Mark Goddard quit acting a few years back to further his education and currently teaches special education. Good for him. c Too many actors go to obscurity and whine about no longer being contenders but do little if anything to help those in true need. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on May 29, 2011, 8:49 pm

Howard Stern - Celebrities
I agree, Soggy. I can recall him saying in an interview he was 'angry' that his satellite show didn't get the EXACT number of viewers as the over-the-air show. Not disappointed, not unhappy but 'angry'- despite him making megamillions regardless. Truth be told, his show never was something I went out of my way to see.Still, I'm glad he DID do that for those shell-shocked by 9/11 in the immediate aftermath (I have kin who were close enough to WITNESS the Towers going down). -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on May 29, 2011, 8:44 pm

Wikipedia - Websites
Thanks for the elaboration, Chubby. It's odd that a BTF entry was on Wikipedia for that long before it was removed. And I've seen entries there for far more questionable sites than this one. It's too bad that the folks over there are so full of themselves, and it definitely discourages me from contributing entries and edits there. (By the way, I'm guessing by his name that Sheffield Steel is either an Englishman or a wannabe porn star.) -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on May 29, 2011, 11:19 am

You're right, of course. Nor is anyone under any obligation to explain why he/she chooses a particular subject to submit. However, the matter is open to conjecture, and I suspect that the number of BTFers who are most interested in submitting subjects they hated from the get-go explains the presence of quite a few subjects on this site. (All those far-left acronym activist groups, for example. There are lots of them here, including some that are quite obscure - yet there are no far-RIGHT activist groups listed, for some reason.) -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on May 29, 2011, 10:55 am

Soggy- SheffieldSteel was the inept administratior over there that we bashed fairly hard at wikipedia.

Who is Sheffield Steel in real life? Anyone know? -- Submitted By: (Chubby Rain) on May 29, 2011, 6:02 am

Wikipedia - Websites
Soggy- as one of the 12 or so BTF users that got swept up in the Wikipedia controversy, yes there is some very bad blood between that site and this site. A very simple link on the JTS wiki page to our page as the self annointed spiritual successor to that site was up for over a year, and then removed, and was put back, and removed etc. several times. Then they claimed BTF wasnt notable, despite out lengthy and documented tack record of mentions (see the FRIENDS OF BTF link). I dont recall the admins name on Wikipedia, but these are not normal people, and you cannot communicate with them on any level that normal humans do- it's all about wiki speak and hiding on their wiki pages. Of course once they shit on BTF, and said we as the BTF nation were not notable, we trashed the admin from their site personally here, knowing that in his or her computer geek wiki lifestyle would read it. Also, there is a strong feeling that the long tendrils of TV guide dont want us on another corportate partner knocking them (wikipedia and TV guide connection as corporate whores hand in hand- sort of like the job placement sites raping jobvent.com- see that page for more details on it's boniong demise) there are tons of websites with links on wiki that have no "documentaton" on them- why?. Also the arguments from the wiki admins were all losing propostions, they won because they "said so" not on any merit of their arguments or interpretations of rules. Ultimately, they failed, the ban on wiki only added to the outlaw independent "cred" and appeal of this website to it's core users. Hope that helps. -- Submitted By: (Chubby Rain) on May 29, 2011, 6:00 am

Howard Stern - Celebrities
The show since 2010 has been a shell of the 4 prior years on Satellite Radio. No Artie, then refusing to replace Artie, suing sirius and then adding more commercials, ending at 10am sharp, 3 day work weeks, more vacations. Sad, and a new era of boning for the show. -- Submitted By: (Chubby Rain) on May 29, 2011, 5:50 am

Spider-Man: The Animated Series (1994-1998) - TV Shows
The only problem I had is Fox cancelled too soon before we get to find out what happened to Mary-Jane, despite high ratings it had. I heard that the producers were planning another whole season with spider-man searching for MJ though different dimensions or something like that, but Fox pulled the plug on them. Overall, it never BTF for me, I don't understand censorship as part of a reason for BTF as they did show some fighting at least. It might not be violent like the comics books but it isn't waterdown too much like 4kids would had done. -- Submitted By: (SSM) on May 28, 2011, 8:19 pm
