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.

Donald Trump - Celebrities
I'm not a fan of this guy. His children all seem pretty down-to-earth and grounded all things considered, but this guy is the biggest attention whore I've ever seen. He is tasteless and tacky with his sense of humor and personality. Now he's proclaming to run for President by making outrageous claims. Though I do wonder why Obama can't produce a birth certificate, the whole birther thing is annoying. Plus, Trump has bankrupted companies, just like the "great" George W. Bush. Just when I think our prospects for Presidents can't get any bleaker (Obama, Trump, Palin, Romney and Newt? Yuck), he has to throw his hat in the ring. I'd love someone to finally come on live TV and tell Trump and his hair that they are fired. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on April 18, 2011, 3:15 pm

Larry Linville - Celebrities
As much of a louse as Frank Burns was, Larry Linville in real life was an all-around nice guy and one of the best people you could ever ask to work with, which has been attested to by other M*A*S*H cast members in virtually every interview/documentary about the show I've ever seen. His reason for leaving the show (that he'd done all he could with the Burns character) was completely correct and totally understandable. Linville was a true unsung hero. The contrast between his character and his real-life self reminds me of a quote from Paul McCrane (of Dr. Robert "Rocket" Romano infamy on ER): "I am not an @$$hole, I just play one on TV." I don't know whether Linville would have put it quite that way, but he certainly would have agreed with the sentiment. -- Submitted By: (Mythigator) on April 18, 2011, 7:41 am

South Park - TV Shows
This is one of the problems the show's creators face: fans seem to want different things out of South Park. If they don't do the gross-out/lowbrow stuff like the early days, fans call them sellouts. If they don't do an episode about a real-life current event or controversy, people will complain. And if they do it, they're often branded "preachy". -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on April 18, 2011, 1:09 am

I never really liked him that much. I just watched Kick Ass the other day and he was easily the worst thing about it. I think it could have been a great movie without him and his overacting.

Larry Linville - Celebrities
Usually I can't stand actors that jump ship on a successful TV show, but I totally understand why he left M*A*S*H. Burns had absolutely no redeeming qualities (he wasn't even a good surgeon) and was always wrong. He basically just served as a strawman for Hawkeye & co. to knock down. And eventually he even lost Hot Lips. Linville said his character was one-dimensional and he was right. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on April 18, 2011, 12:50 am

Instead of getting to become his apprentice, why can't the grand prize of the show be to tell him HE is fired?!

It can't have been easy for Linville to go in the show being the foil and target of all the other characters' hatred [even at the end Hot Lips'] but he did it quite flawlessly. BTW, for a brief time, he was the son-in-law of[ of all people] Will 'Grandpa Walton' Geer! Can anyone imagine how Grandpa Walton would have treated Frank Burns if he HAD been his son-in-law?! LOL. Not the only "Waltons"/"M*A*S*H" link, though. Alan Arbus 'Dr. Sydney Freeman' has been married to Mariclare 'Miss Rosemary Hunter' Costello since the 1970's. Yes, Miss Hunter married him instead of the future Jack Tripper.

My "bloody problem" with him is the fact he's constantly shoved down everyone's throats as this iconic figure, this mega star that somehow everybody should worship. If his audience is prepubescent girls then why should I be forced to care about him at all? I shouldn't even know who he is, right? And don't blame "the paparazzi" either, people like Bieber know full well what they're getting into and WANT attention since it's the only way they'll make money and be considered worth anything their whole lives. It's a mutually calculated group effort to bombard all of America with their image nonstop, and he's just as in on it as anyone else. And all the other people you mentioned lived at a time when celeb worship wasn't forced on us one tenth as much as it is today. It was actually possible to be an adult in the 70s without having the Osmonds or David Cassidy forced into your brain 24/7. -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on April 17, 2011, 7:13 pm

Any occasion for families to get together seems to me to be bone-proof by definition.

I don't understand the hatred so many feel toward this kid. His audience is little girls, for pete's sake! If you are not a little girl, what's your bloody problem with him? He's no more objectionable than Bobby Sherman or David Cassidy or (shudder) Donny Osmond or (double shudder) Leif Garrett were, back in the day. Sure, his music is lightweight; sure, the funky haircut makes him look even younger than he is; sure, some of his public pronouncements don't quite measure up as the product of a great intellect. So what? None of us is a member of his target audience, any more than your 12-year-old daughter is a member of Trent Reznor's target audience. And Bieber is hardly the worst child our 12-year-old daughters could lose their hearts to, is he? (Does he sing about the joys of drugs and pimping and shooting people?

South Park - TV Shows
Celebreties like Britney, Lindsay, Paris and others have gotten where they are with little talent or effort and don't seem to appreciate it. Seeing them self-destruct, however, is not what we are after. The episode depicts a headless Britney (after shooting herself) stalked by the press who are oblivious to her not having a head. The bloodthirsty press stalking suicidal Britney. Paparazzis stalking celebreties is an old issue. Invasion of privacy I think is the legal term. There is an audience for sleazy tabloid journalism, but most fans(including Britney's) would most likely be satisfied with an autograph not broadcasting that Britney went to the gas station restroom with no shoes on. Matt and Trey should should stick to writing comedy and leave the sanctimony to somebody else, especially when it takes the sickeningly maudlin, morose form that this did. I also want to state that somewhere intime there needs to be some sort of standard for this brand of "gross out" entertainment that everyone is so fond of these days. -- Submitted By: (lrbloom) on April 17, 2011, 11:20 am

It's not that I have any "bloodlust", I just want people like Sheen and Britney and Lindsey Lohan to get out of the news permanently. If the only way for that to happen is for them to die from their hedonism (and apparently it is), then so be it. I'm just sick and tired of people like this being talked about 24/7. And then afterwards they can finally contribute to society for a change when their bodies are vivisected and inspected by scientists to see how any human can consume so many drugs and stay upright and conscious for so long. I'd like to know the answer to that one myself. BTW I loved the episode mocking Paris Hilton.

Long time ago- roughly around '98-'99 when I first discovered classmates.com, it was actually a very cool and TOTALLY FREE site, like facebook where you had to register a FREE account and then you could search for and contact anyone you wanted. They had message boards for every school and even some workplaces. It was really kinda cool. As I recall, they were trying to make money by the model of selling ad space on their web pages (which I had no problem with). Then BOOM one day I logged on and couldn't get onto the message boards to check on a conversation I had going with someone I went to high school with and hadn't seen in ages. Not only that, I couldn't go to a friends listing to send then a private message. Every attempt I got a message that told me that NOW I had to get a "Gold Membership" to access these features. I sent a complaint email to someone at classmates and the response was just pretty much a 'This is the way it's all going so suck it up and shell it out if you wanna play.' Just read the wikipedia entry on classmates.com.

Elton John - Music Groups
This one is easy: January 1978, when he began recording the songs that would become his 12th album A Single Man. It was a terrible album, and it signalled a permanent divorce from the style that had made him famous. I'm told he's made a few good albums since then, and he's certainly acquired a whole new fan base, but I have heard no individual song of his since '78 that made any impression on me (aside from making me want to gag). The guy's personal life and activism never bothered me, though; he seems to have an honorable soul, which is all I should care about. And I respect his willingness to buck his fellow leftwing artists by playing in Israel last year. (Hell, I don't even care that he performed at Rush Limbaugh's wedding; the million bucks he received for it went to a good cause.) -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on April 15, 2011, 3:24 am

Odd Couple, The (TV series) - TV Shows
I don't think this show ever boned. It was pretty much the same thing all the way through which may be the secret to great tv. -- Submitted By: (lrbloom) on April 15, 2011, 3:21 am

True Hollywood Story - TV Shows
I am so sick of this drivel about mediocre celebreties or the latest train wreck. In other words Jenny McCarthy or Lindsay Lohan. Jenny has no talent just a nice body and since you can see her in back issues of Playboy or on the web why bother. If can stomach Jenny's life story or Bo Derek's and actually keep a straight face while someone points out the "talent" (stop - my sides are splitting) or the "look" that these celevreties have you're a better person than I. Then we can always rerun the "Different Strokes" story or how about Valerie Bertinelli comeback special. Most of these celebreties are overrated and overexposed to the point of nausea. This is like a second rate version of the Biography Channel or something. I always change the channel when this comes on. Why is it that every True Hollywood Story sounds like the one before it. Dullsville...Self-hype...Exploited deceased celebreties...Yawn...Gag...Snore -- Submitted By: (lrbloom) on April 15, 2011, 3:11 am

Radiohead - Music Groups
The three albums beginning with Kid A were a challenge for me, deviating so heavily as they did from the band's previous sound. But I came to appreciate them, and their last two albums are quite good. Clearly Radiohead is a band you either really like or really dislike; there seems to be less middle ground than there is with other artists. (I'm not quite sure why that is, but it is what it is.) -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on April 15, 2011, 2:49 am

Onions - Random Topics
Round onion gooood. Green onion baaaad. Onion rings fine, unless eaten on small boat in rough waters, which make you barf. Trust me on this. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on April 15, 2011, 2:25 am

2000s - Random Topics
Ahh, the Information Overload Century.... I know the human brain is capable of absorbing an impressive amount of input, but it really is amazing to me that most of us can endure the levels of sensory bombardment to which we are subjected, every waking moment (and possibly in our sleep as well), without turning into homicidal berserkers. In that sense, at least in terms of scale, the 2000s are unprecedented. In terms of news events, however - your basic wars and natural disasters and socio-economic upheavals and dumbass political bickering and so on - this century isn't showing me anything new so far. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on April 15, 2011, 1:50 am

Alamo Ministries - Websites
On October 22, 2008, Alamo's former followers testified in court during a preliminary hearing that Alamo had practiced polygamy and had taken an eight-year-old girl as a wife.[28][29] On December 2, a judge in Arkansas unsealed a federal indictment that included eight new charges against Alamo. The 74-year-old Alamo, who remained jailed while awaiting trial, originally faced two charges of taking minor girls across state lines for sex. The eight new counts were similar and involved four new alleged victims.[30] His trial began on July 13, 2009, and on July 24, 2009, Alamo was found guilty on all ten federal counts.[31][32] On July 28, 2009, shortly after his conviction, Tony Alamo again made headlines by calling himself "just another one of the prophets that went to jail for the Gospel".[33] He was sentenced to 175 years in prison on November 13, 2009.[34] On January 13, 2010, each of five women who testified to sexual abuse by Alamo were awarded US$500,000 in restitution, for a total judgment of US$2.5 million.[citation needed] With the Federal Bureau of Prisons ID number 00305-112, he is currently incarcerated at the Federal Correctional Institution (FCI) in Terre Haute, Indiana. -- Submitted By: (lrbloom) on April 15, 2011, 1:20 am

Both soaps are being replaced by health-related talk shows." - TV Guide.com You have to wonder if this will be an improvement or not? -- Submitted By: (lrbloom) on April 15, 2011, 1:12 am

Classmates.com - Websites
I am discovering the hard way what a lame site Classmates is. Even after signing up for a short subscription - they were offering a $7.50 rate for three months, which seemed reasonable - I found that there was very little I could either access or leave for others to read. They apparently discourage members from exchanging email addresses and phone numbers and whatnot, preferring communications be through them. If that isn't the stupidest setup I've ever encountered, I don't know what is. And much of the format is so saccharinic I'm worried about my blood-sugar level when I'm there. Plus I can't stand all that Memory Lane crap they've attached to the site; why do they automatically assume that just because a person's high school career took place in a particular decade that the person is eager to revisit that decade? -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on April 15, 2011, 1:11 am

Curb Your Enthusiasm - TV Shows
It's still a funny show well worth watching. That being said, I think after Season Four is when it boned (or jumped or whatever). A "special hour long show" is a good sign right there and the fifth and sixth seasons were uneven at best, especially when Cheryl left in season six. With Season Seven it seemed to get some of its groove back with the Seinfeld reunion and I hope Season EIght has him reconciling with Cheryl. She's necessary to the show by acting as Larry's seldom heeded concience/voice of reason. -- Submitted By: (MartyRotten) on April 14, 2011, 10:42 pm

Outsourced - TV Shows
I can't imagine any of the many people thrown out of work due to outsourcing getting any sort of enjoyment out of this show. And I still can't figure out how it hasn't gone the way of COP ROCK, SECRET DIARY OF DESMOND PFEIFFER, HELLO LARRY and the millions of other network television embarassments. -- Submitted By: (MartyRotten) on April 14, 2011, 10:31 pm

Venture Bros., The - TV Shows
Okay, I think they were making a little joke in Season Three where Brock escapes being dragged behind the boat and is being attacked by a shark when he breaks free and ambushes (or jumps) the shark and uses him to trap his attacker. -- Submitted By: (MartyRotten) on April 14, 2011, 10:30 pm

It's Garry Shandling's Show - TV Shows
That show was so 'off-the-wall' finding a real bone moment is difficult. One of my favorite bits from TGSS was when they had the Japanese guy sing the theme song for that episode in Japanese. LOL! -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on April 13, 2011, 10:58 am

Star Trek: Deep Space 9 - TV Shows
I was disappointed in the ending - Sisko's non-death death and all - but this series never came close to boning. It was the darkest, most complex and well-written of all the Star Trek incarnations, and arguably the best-acted too. And it was nice to see Starfleet portrayed as having a dark side (the amoral, CIA-esque Sector 31). -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on April 13, 2011, 4:04 am

Star Trek - TV Shows
Some third-season episodes weren't so bad. "All Our Yesterdays" was fairly well-written, and "The Tholian Web" was quite good. "Day of the Dove" was a rip-snortin' Klingon-heavy episode, of which there were never enough. And who can resist "Turnabout Intruder" (the very last episode of the series), in which Shatner got to portray a woman in a man's body? I'll admit, though, that my own candidate for worst episode was the third-season stinkfest called "Spectre of the Gun". -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on April 13, 2011, 3:43 am

2001: A Space Odyssey - Movie Series
In fairness, quite a few audiences back in 1968-69 weren't sure what to make of it either. I saw it not long after it first came out, in my little redneck town's sole theater. The "Dawn of Man" scene at the beginning drew alot of laughs from the uncomprehending yokels surrounding me - "Looky at them dang ole monkey men a-jumpin around, har har har!" - and quite a few of them walked out before the movie ended. And let's face it; that last "Starchild" scene couldn't help but be a head-scratcher if one hadn't read the book beforehand. Still, the comments on this thread about the 21st-century American attention span are right on the money. I might also add that certain realistic details of 2001, such as the lack of sound in space, were jettisoned in the making of 2010, probably as a dumbing-down sop to audiences conditioned by Star Trek and Star Wars and Battlestar Galactica to expect explosions in space to be really noisy. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on April 13, 2011, 3:09 am

Domino's Pizza - Random Topics
All large pizza chains blow. There is zero attention paid to craftsmanship, and the finished product is pretty much tasteless. (The same can be said of large beer manufacturers and their equally mediocre product. But folks who are willing to settle for watery, tasteless beer are also perfectly okay with eating lowest-common-denominator pizza like Domino's.) -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on April 12, 2011, 8:42 pm

Earth Liberation Front (ELF) - Random Topics
If their mission statement were interpreted as broadly as it could be, the ELF's goal could easily be "to return humanity to a pre-civilized state". Even basic agriculture would seem to come under their definition of activities worth waging "guerrilla warfare" against. At heart these people are children in adult bodies. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on April 12, 2011, 8:34 pm

Ax Men - TV Shows
A stand-alone documentary would have been sufficient. But no; we have to have this soap opera, with its contrived conflicts and a frankly irresponsible competition that might end up getting someone killed. (I live near where the Rygaard crew is based; in real life those guys aren't at each other's throats like they are portrayed on the show as being. The show's producers basically tell them to ham it up, so that's what they do.) And that fool who salvages timber from rivers is little more than a cartoon character. (He is also breaking quite a few laws in doing what he does, and I wish they would hurry up and cart his ass off to jail.) -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on April 12, 2011, 8:26 pm

Rich Man, Poor Man (TV miniseries) - TV Shows
This series never boned. (The sequel, however, was terrible.) To this day, whenever I see the great character actor William Smith on TV or the big screen, I immediately think "Damn you, Falconetti..." -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on April 12, 2011, 8:11 pm

Sopranos, The - TV Shows
I will say that much of the sixth season seemed hastily slapped together, as if the writers had only a few days to write a whole season's worth of material. (Chris M's death was not only deeply anticlimactic but had the feel of a last-minute decision.) And I'd be lying if I said I liked the ending at the time it aired. (It was only years later that I came to appreciate what Chase was trying to do there. Could he have done it in a more decisive manner? Sure. But I've never written for television so what do I know?) All in all, though, the journey meant more to me than the journey's completion. (By the way, as much as I liked The Shield, I don't place any more weight on the opinions of that show's producers, vis-a-vis up-in-the-air endings, than I do on anyone else's. If anything, those guys played it a little too safe with their own finale.) -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on April 12, 2011, 8:06 pm

Maude (TV series) - TV Shows
OF COURSE Maude was a hypocrite! (For the record, so was Mike Stivic, aka Meathead.) That was one of the points Norman Lear & Co sought to make in their shows. Just because they were all liberals didn't mean they couldn't poke fun at the contradictions and double standards (and insecurities!) of many members of their own political tribe. In fact, the characters in Lear sitcoms who tended to be the most consistent, and consistently honest and decent, were those - both Florida and Edith Bunker come to mind - who didn't wave their political views in everyone's faces. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on April 12, 2011, 7:47 pm
