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.

TOMS Shoes - Random Topics
Maybe this is the cynic in me, but if there's one thing that's bugging me more than anything right now, it's TOMS Shoes. I think the purpose and cause are great. However, there is so much about this company that annoys the crap out of me that I don't know where to begin. The shoes themselves are crap. They are made of terrible material and bust open very quickly. This is why shoes made from material such as leather, suede and more tend to last much longer than shoes made from "vegan" material. They are ugly as sin. They make the shoes nurses wear look attractive. Heck, they make Crocs look tolerable! It looks like shoes made from tissue boxes that kids make when they are five. I have a great friend of mine who loves TOMS. She has many pairs. They never last longer than maybe two months with regular wearing. She also tends to wear them without socks (which is how most people wear them) and they get this really bad odor when she does. Also, the shoes are made in China, probably from those who need them the most. Hypocritical? Those people that need shoes need quality footwear, not this buzzword, feel good, tug at your heart strings sham that is TOMS. I hope the bandwagon of annoying celebrity fans who go barefoot for a day and go to concerts in support of TOMS disappear, as do the shoes. I have a feeling they are what Crocs were from about 2007-2009. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on June 21, 2011, 9:25 pm

Vicar of Dibley, The - TV Shows
I do enjoy the so-called 'Brit-Coms' but I will admit that what you've just described seems to be a common occurrence with a number of the British Sit-Coms I have seen over time. They start out great with a very promising and hilarious premise and then after about two good seasons (or 'series' as they call them on the other side of the pond) they go nuts with it from there on out and completely ruin it. As if the writers sit in the writing room and say "Well they just love it when Mr. Humphries/The Vicar/Hiacynth/etc. does this/that. Let's cram it down the viewers throats!" But, then at the same time, we Yanks are pretty capable of pulling off the ol' 'crashing a sitcom into the wall and making one-dimensional cartoons out of the characters.' After all 'Happy Days' was an American sitcom. :) But, I do agree agree with you about The Vicar of Dibley. Great premise that went really bad after a couple of seasons. -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on June 21, 2011, 6:02 pm

America's Most Wanted - TV Shows
Last regular episode aired on Sunday. It's really insidious how FOX is killing this show. The last time they tried to kill it there was a public outcry. So now they're saying, "Oh nooooo, we're not canceling it; we're just reducing it to four special broadcasts a year." And you just watch, they will preempt them or gradually reduce the 4-per-year to 0-per-year. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on June 21, 2011, 12:44 am

Home Improvement - TV Shows
The last thing I want to see on a sitcom (unless it's "All In the Family") is someone trying to tackle a serious issue (like teenagers on drugs) one minute and Tim Allen falling down the stairs the next. All kids on long-running series grow up (look at Jerry Mathers), but when the boys on this show reached puberty, the loss of cuteness was magnified by the power of 10. Plus, why didn't Allen's "Tool Time" co-host ever smash his face in with a belt sander for being such a pr**k all the time? I know I would have.

South Park - TV Shows
To sum it up: TONS of metaphorical elements in this episode. If I had to analyze it I would say that Sharon & Randy = Comedy Central & Matt & Trey (respectively), Stan = the show South Park itself and the rest of the boys = (possibly) the Fans (maybe, but I'm not sold on that one-yet).

I'm not really bothered on the fact that he was a Scientologist (and no, I do NOT support them), but rather on how he reacted with the South Park Co$ episode.

South Park - TV Shows
I did see it and I thought the very same thing. I can't imagine that Matt & Trey are trying to "take the show in a new direction"- South Park is just not the kind of show you do that sort of thing with. Such a move would completely rub against the grain of the show. They are reportedly committed to the Comedy Channel until 2013, but who knows. If their show 'The Book of Mormon' continues to be the success that it has been and they launch other successful ventures, my guess is that they probably will just renegotiate or buy their contract out (again, just guessing here). Personally, I think they should quit while they are ahead. -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on June 15, 2011, 10:49 am

Westboro Baptist Church - Random Topics
I think we could all use some good news and here's something that should make every caring person proud: on Sunday, June 13th, in Nashville, TN- 3 protestors [count 'em three] from Westboro Baptist Church showed up to protest at the funeral of Sgt. Kevin Balduf age 27 who had died in combat in Afghanistan- but they left after only 10 minutes due to the COUNTER-protest and rally of over 2,000 [two THOUSAND] TRUE patriots who came to show their support for Sgt. Balduf's family and compatriots during that heartbreaking occasion. HOORAY! Isn't that good news? Allow me to use this soapbox to try to stir up the possibility of future good news: Now Soggy and DolFan, I can't say I always agree with your respective points of view but you each bring something interesting to this proverbial table- even if it's a point of view I disagree with , I think it's interesting to find out who has it and individual MO's[ and I daresay I think you all entirely chalk-and-cheese with each other]!

Let's take this one by one, shall we? "Why resist? Because I'm a grownup." And I'm not? How old do you think I am, 15? And my soul's not "corroded" either. LOL Lebron's is, but not mine. "That's why I try to balance the critical things I write on these BTF topics with positive comments. Simply put: Constant negativity isn't good for a person." Oh please, you were going to STOP posting here altogether not too long ago, don't play me like that. "Besides, as I have pointed out in a number of BTF posts, the American Stardom Machine - which ultimately is all of us - places impossible expectations and demands and pressures on talented young people - especially actors and athletes - for which they are often not emotionally or psychologically prepared." Talented young people??? If that was coming from anyone else I'd assume it was a joke but I know you're actually serious :-O The reason I can't stand celebs is because almost none of them have talent! They just get handed money and fame "just because" and proceed to actually act like they deserve it, HA!!! "LeBron James was given too much, too fast, and too much has been demanded of him in return." And that's the way it ought to be. Would you rather NOTHING be demanded of him in exchange for all his money and fame? How fair would THAT be? "I can hardly begin to imagine the pressures he has been under." Oh yes, what a victim, being forced to air The Decision on live TV--oh wait, he did that of his own free will, never mind. "In the sense that he handled the Cleveland departure very poorly - due largely to having received very bad advice from his so-called friends - I can understand the temptation to gloat at how the bad karma he has generated has come back on him." You *say* you can understand, but all your other comments say otherwise. If you could understand you wouldn't have made your last post. "Hell, I was a Seattle resident when Alex Rodriguez ditched the Mariners for a quarter-billion bucks. I shared the general Seattle bitterness toward the guy, and for years I relished every subsequent setback in his career." Were you a grownup then? :-) "But it occurred to me one day that I was angry at A-Rod for failing to place my demands on him above his demands on himself, and from that moment I dropped my foolish grudge and just accepted him as a very good ballplayer." Who said I was "angry" with Lebron? Another assumption you've made, tsk tsk. "This is what I'm trying to do with LeBron too (and also with Tiger Woods)." Yes, let's just totally ignore the fact Tiger Woods is a big time philanderer just because he hits a golf ball well. (Rolls eyes.) "And finally, the older I get, the less attractive I find following herds and adopting a herd mentality. This gleeful I-Hate-LeBron-James craze I see gripping the country is very much a herd thing. (Or more accurately a school-of-piranha thing.)" Nope, I came up with my scorn of Lebron all on my own, didn't need anyone else's help. And aren't *you* adopting the "herd" mentality of calling anyone who thinks like me a "hater"? Seriously, I wish I could steal the h key off everyone's keypad so they'd at least have to find another word to use. At least you haven't used it--yet. More people than ever before in American history have been handed money and fame who don't deserve it, and pointing that out when their hubris gets out of control doesn't make me part of any "herd" or "corrode" my soul. It means I'm simply not afraid to point out the obvious. If the emperor has no clothes, what good does it do anybody to NOT mention it? -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on June 14, 2011, 6:59 pm

South Park - TV Shows
Yes, Travoltron, I saw it. An unusually heavy episode, with a very melancholy ending, and a pretty clear hint that this may be last season of South Park. Parker and Stone have made little effort to hide the fact that they aren't as committed to the show as they used to be, and that they are frustrated at the demands the show places on their time and energy. Now that they have an award-winning Broadway musical to their credit, they appear to want to try other things, and South Park has become a drag on their ambitions. In that sense, "You're Getting Old" would seem to have multiple meanings. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on June 14, 2011, 4:41 pm

Since you are always quick to attack left-of-center people and organizations and ideas, and usually missing in action when the subject is a right-of-center person or organization or idea, I have come to assume you are right of center. ("If it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck...", etc etc) And since you won't clarify the matter by telling us where you DO stand, philosophically, you can hardly expect someone to NOT make such an assumption about you. However, some of your posts do tell me you aren't an orthodox conservative. (Or at least they indicate a guy who is as likely to embrace elements of our modern toxic culture as he is to gripe about them.) But the fact is that absinthe has been associated pretty closely with counterculture-type personalities going back well over a hundred years, and its present popularity in this country is confined mostly to folks who consider themselves progressives of one sort or another. Therefore, my assumptions about you are not so unrealistic on their face, are they? -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on June 14, 2011, 2:10 pm

X-Men: The Animated Series (1992-1997) - TV Shows
I just finished watching the series, and I got to say it was overall a very well written, mature and all-round accessible cartoon for both kids and adults. The first season had a very good pararell story to racism in the modern world which rewarded people who made the attempt to tune in every time. Though the second one was not as continuous it still was captivating. Each character major began being developed further as well as the secondary characters when they appeared, both good and evil. As for when the Phoenix saga came along, it was a pity that the episodes from then on were shown out of sequence and that it became mostly stand-alone with the exception of multi-parters (though there was one episode chronologically straight after the Phoenix saga which was not broadcast until much later on - it was cloyingly out of place). The last few episodes did not fare too well on the animation department, however around then it was seeming like high time to wrap it all up. It sort of went down as a result leaving the series not as good as the first episodes allowed it to be. However, the series finale was a touching, very mature way to depart showing how each member of the X-Men had developed some nuances and were changed people by working together for a similar cause. Great show in all for audiences of all ages. -- Submitted By: (johnnydough) on June 14, 2011, 1:14 am

I remember a 60 Minutes piece on LeBron back around 2003, when he was about to begin his pro career right out of high school. He came across as a genuinely nice, likable young man, humble and soft-spoken and well-grounded. Now look at him eight years later. Success - wealth and fame and hero worship and all the other things that set him apart from the ordinary run of humanity - has thoroughly ruined him. And the expectations that have been piled on his shoulders over the years - the demands to be The King - have proven too much for him to bear (let alone to bear with any sort of grace). I won't call him a victim of society - he's too rich and has too many fans for a label like that to sound anything other than foolishly melodramatic - but I do believe he has been damaged by all the hype and attention and demands of superstardom, and this is why I take no pleasure in his humiliation. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on June 13, 2011, 8:54 pm

For me, it boned when they went to some hidden base- and immediately happened upon a cantina bar virtually identical to the one in the original first "Star Wars" movie [and IIRC I don't think this went unnoticed by Lucas]. Couldn't they try to be a little original? Oh, and it didn't help that Lorne Greene's Adama patriarch was even duller than Adam Cartwright [Ben's eldest son] on "Bonanza". -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on June 13, 2011, 6:53 pm

The contestants on this horrid program don't really respect music as anything more than a tool. To them it's just a means to an end - the vehicle which will bring them the fame and wealth they lust for - rather than an end in itself.

If I was McFarlane too, I would be elated. That means Fox puts on another one of his crappy Family Guy spinoffs.

Beer - Random Topics
Absinthe???? What the???? Oh, never mind; to each his own. I seem to have misread this crowd; I could have sworn there were a few beer drinkers among you lot, or at least a couple of you - aside from the always-reliable Kingbk - who appreciated a high-quality brew (as opposed to your basic Bud and related swill). But no. By the way, King, I too like a good stout or other dark beer on occasion, but there are some mighty decent amber and pale ales out there too. And I've become fond of a variety called Scotch Ale, some brands of which are aged for several months in whiskey barrels, which gives them a wonderfully smooth taste. (They can also be upward of 9 percent alcohol....) American beer definitely boned the fish in the mid-20th century when the big-box corporations - Budweiser, Miller and Coors - drove most of those nice old regional brews out of business and replaced them with watery, soulless crap that really IS good for nothing but getting you drunk. The birth, some 30 years ago, of the craft beer movement, and all the wonderful micros that have resulted, qualifies in my book as a first-class reverse-bone. (The greater availability of good imports helps too.) For the record, I like my vodka too, and the world would be poorer without either rum or tequila. (And one of my kinfolks buys me a fifth of Tanqueray for my birthday every year, which is a damn fine tradition.) But I'm a beer man through and through. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on June 13, 2011, 1:38 am

As I recall, this was nothing more than a poor man's version of 'The Hulk' which played on the popular media's brief fascination, in the late 70's, with children allegedly raised by wolves.

Fairly OddParents, The - TV Shows
Apparently not. As for Poof, he's useless. Sure, he doesn't steal the spotlight, but his only purpose is barf, poop, puke, and fart jokes. He's a total copy of Histeria's Big Fat Baby. Poof's even shaped like him! While I'm here, why the $#&@ did they copy one of the worst cartoon characters from one of the worst cartoons ever? Anyhow, the rest of the characters, as others said, just get more and more stupid. Some gags or quotes are repeated over and over. One example is in the episode "Talkin' Trash": Timmy wishes the garbage away, which causes weird things to happen. Cosmo and Dad suddenly had the lower halves of ostriches, laid eggs, and said "Man Egg!" like a hundred times. A joke does not suddenly become funny when repeated over and over. It seems the only ones who learn this lesson are the viewers. Now that I think about it, everyone in the cartoon business is copying the Simpsons' formula: make everyone get stupider with each new season, repeat jokes over and over, make the main characters idiots and/or selfish jerks, get too zany. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on June 12, 2011, 7:41 pm

Beer - Random Topics
I think there are two types of people for those that choose to drink alcohol: beer drinkers and wine drinkers. Though I love a good glass of vino, I'm definitely more of a beer guy. However, I'm not a big drinker, so when I have a beer I want one that is satisfying. For me, a good, quality beer has great taste and most of the time is darker in coloration. Commercial crap like bud light, miller, keystone is NOT quality beer. Those are for people who drink to get drunk. I like to spend a little more to get something I can truly enjoy. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on June 12, 2011, 12:00 pm

Beer - Random Topics
I'm somewhat with DolFan here! While I'm fascinated that this seems to have been the first commodity produced by humans (i.e. early barns that stored grasses to feed newly domesticated livestock had leaky roofs which let rain in to ferment said grasses. Long short is that beer seems to have been around at least 1000 years before bread), I can't say this is something I ever was into. Maybe I share the tastes of the more Continental part of my background but I far preferred wine or rum when I wanted booze. Of course, it should be consumed only by legal adults who are aware of risks + health issues and if one wants to get drunk on it, please call a cab or designated driver instead of risking other drivers,pedestrians. Cab fare is FAR cheaper than legal fees. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on June 12, 2011, 9:31 am

Burger King - Random Topics
I remember the new fries back in 1997. They were amazing. I mentioned to everyone how good they were. I ate at Burger King again about a month later and something was wrong. The fries were dull. There was no wow factor. I was very disappointed. I didn't know what to make of it. I thought maybe last month had been a fluke, maybe I was just hungry that day. Recently I found out the real story from my Global Economy and Business textbook. The starch coating on the 1997 fries was better according to taste tests but too difficult to cook correctly in day to day operations. There were so many mistakes that Burger King decided to scrap the project all together. Its a shame because I really liked those fries. The 1997 fries to me were a lot better than McDonalds but the true version of the 1997 fries had a very short life. -- Submitted By: (wilddrawfour) on June 12, 2011, 8:48 am
