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.

Bad Brains - Music Groups
Great - and I mean GREAT - early stuff, but that nasty old beast called "creative differences" came along and tore up the place; the last album with vocalist H.R., Quickness, didn't know what it was supposed to be, and after he left in 1989 the band didn't seem to know what it was either. The only consistent element after '89 was Dr Know's wonderfully insane guitar work, but that wasn't really enough. A sort of reunion album with a much reduced H.R. came out a few years ago, but it's kind of weak. Apparently they're staying together for another record or two, and they've been touring all over the place, but I don't know why they bother. All in all, Bad Brains was on top of its game in the '80s and probably boned for good when the decade ended. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on June 11, 2011, 3:05 pm

Black Flag - Music Groups
Maddeningly inconsistent, with two brilliant albums bookending three others that were a little too artsy (not to mention too hastily produced) for the band's own good. The last studio album was strong, and a fantastic live album hit the streets just as the band was going under. All in all a great springboard for Rollins, whose subsequent solo work redefined the word "uncompromising". -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on June 11, 2011, 2:44 pm

Nobody here at BTF has an opinion about beer? That's pretty bizarre if you ask me.

Travoltron, you'd be surprised at how many pro wrestling fans (and ex-pro wrestling fans in my case) know Chyna is Joanie Laurer. The sad part is, she's fluent in Spanish (really) so you'd think she'd be able to get a good job doing *something* just on that alone.

Sportscenter - TV Shows
I remember up until about 1997, around the time Disney purchased ABC, that Sportscenter was a great show. It was informative, entertaining, and somewhat edgy. You had greats like Bob Ley, Robin Roberts, Charley Steier, Keith Olbermann (regardless of your political persuasion, he was legendary on this show) and Dan Patrick. You had news on all the teams and most of the sports. It didn't come across over the top or gossipy. However, once it was "Disneyized", it lost a lot of luster. Now it's gossipy, it focuses on about four teams (Yankees, Red Sox, Patriots, Lakers), most of the anchors are bland except for Steve Levy, Hannah Storm, and John Anderson and it's over the top in presentation. In fact, besides College Gameday, PTI and Baseball Tonight, I can't stand most of what's on ESPN anymore. I go to MLB Network, NFL Network, NBA TV or the Internet to get my sports news. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on June 10, 2011, 8:59 am

I had to be dragged to both of these movies, and the person who did the dragging owes me bigtime for the misery I endured.

F Troop - TV Shows
I'm always amazed at the detailed critiques of a series that aired briefly nearly half a century ago. I certainly could not remember any changes in the quality of the writing from the first season to the second, or the change in caliber of the fort's cannon, or whatever. (45 years is a looonnnnnggg time to retain that sort of stuff in my head.) All I recall is a show I rather liked, despite its abject silliness. (Or because of it; again, the memory just isn't too sharp here.) I appreciated that the Indians were smarter than the cavalrymen, and I liked the cast. There was no boning moment I could name. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on June 10, 2011, 8:02 am

Boned ten fish on the day his Sacramento radio show first aired. Boned a hundred more when his TV show first aired. Boned five hundred more when he had worthless puke Axl Rose on his show (and the two of them quickly formed an intensely nauseating mutual admiration society). Boned a thousand fish when he returned to Trash Radio after the TV show was cancelled. Boned five thousand more when he returned to TV. Boned ten thousand more when that venture predictably failed and he returned to radio for the third and last time. Lay all the fish this guy boned end to end and you could walk on them all the way to the moon. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on June 10, 2011, 4:01 am

Geraldo Rivera - Celebrities
Robert, I left grad school to take an offered job at a midsized newspaper, thus sidetracking my dream to become Soggy the Courageous War Reporter. I'd have fancied hitching up with a wire service rather than a TV news network, being at the time a better writer than speaker, but at any rate life intervened as it always does and sent me in a different direction. And then five or six years later I switched careers entirely. As for any sense I might have had back then of Geraldo's imperfections, they would not have affected my view of him, and in fact my understanding was that a good foreign correspondent was supposed to be a hard-drinking horndog with a bit of an attitude who marched to his own drum and rubbed lots of folks the wrong way. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on June 10, 2011, 2:36 am

PYLrulz, you are right about DX09 were reformed just to sell stuff. They couldn't do much with the watered down of WWE but I think also because Shawn Michael is a Christian but he and HHH is still funny neverless. But having DX as a tag-team wasn't the same to me as having as a 4-men or 5-men group back in the attitude years with Chyna, Shawn Michaels, HHH, X-Pac, Road Dogg, and Mr. Ass. I got a question though, was Stephaine Mcmahon was offically a DX member also since she was married to HHH back then?

One of his problems is that he has terrible (and trashy) taste in women. The most current ex reminds me of Heather Mills-McCartney and Brynn Hartman.

Commish, The - TV Shows
Not a bad little show! What I liked the most here is how the title character caught clues and worked out whodunnit and HOW- and then did his best to nail the perps. I recall one episode in which he momentarily hesitated in breaking into someone's apartment sans warrant on the ground that the evidence couldn't be used to give the perp a life sentence- then realized that the kidnapped baby dependent on medicine would DIE waiting for said warrant so it was better to risk no jail time for the perp than to let a kidnapped baby die! I liked the idea of an official weighing what was ethically better for the victims/families rather than just someone who randomly dispensed stuff with no thought of that. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on June 9, 2011, 2:07 pm

Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution - TV Shows
DolFan, Well, considering that it's showing how a government run school system of a large US metropolitan area is actively pushing unhealthy foods on the city's youth to the point of trying to BAN any dissenting options or voices [to say nothing about how near adult youth are being shown having been kept APPALLING ignorant of even the most elemental nutrition and food source info], I think it's actually a bit eye-opening and I hope those are concerned about the possibility of larger percentages of folks in rising generations suffering from serious diet/exercise related longterm health problems will at least consider what steps they can individually take to help those loved ones in their life to avoid such calamnities. For example, diabetes is on the rise and not only does this mean amputations but 60 percent of diabetic go BLIND. Hence, if one estimate's forecast of one-third of all children born after 2000 contracting diabetes comes true, do the math and think of what this could mean for our nation's future if this goes unchecked . The main downside to the program is Jamie's constant pity-party for himself re others' resistance. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on June 9, 2011, 2:00 pm

However; you all were inspired to try to become journalists because deep inside you all knew you could be BETTER and have higher standards of conduct and ethics [ virtually anyone can].No, I'm not dissing you or other former fans of his because unfortunately the shrill promo machinary behind him at his height made it rather unpleasant to admit even the slightest criticism of his work at that time. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on June 9, 2011, 1:43 pm

It's not our fault, Soggy. Most of us BTFers don't really care one way or another about Dawn Lyn. It was a few people who had an axe to grind with her, as well as those who stacked votes against her, in the early days of BTF. Notice most of the people who slammed Dawn Lyn here are no longer around (their last posts are almost 2 years old). You should have seen how BAD the vote stacking was against her in the past. There were like 1,000 or more votes for Dawn Lyn on all shows that had her, even if she was only a one-time guest. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on June 9, 2011, 12:53 pm

Hey, JohnnyRocket, you have a one-track mind, and your shtick is getting really old. You brag about shows featuring a guest appearance by "that female" as racking up 10,000 bone votes, neglecting to mention that you and two or three others are responsible for most of them. Great, we get it: Dawn Lyn was/is a terrible actor. Continuing to make the point, over and over and over again, is just tedious and childish. Why don't you either grow up or go play in fucking traffic and leave this stuff to us adults, okay? As for when Streets boned, I have to agree that Douglas's departure a few episodes into season 5 was the Boning Moment.

But do it behind closed doors; don't make it into a spectator sport, like Judge Judy or Dr Laura. The guy and his show are exploitative. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on June 8, 2011, 3:02 am

Perry Mason (TV series) - TV Shows
For most of its run, Perry Mason aired on Saturday. Perhaps the only cases he won were those that were tried on Saturday, and Burger won all those tried on Monday through Friday. Or something. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on June 8, 2011, 2:31 am

Kelsey Grammer - Celebrities
I'm not saying this excuses him, but keep in mind this guy has been dealt a lot of bad hands in life that would have driven most of us mad: "Grammer's personal life has been plagued by tragedies. In 1968, when Grammer was thirteen years old, his father, whom he had seen only twice since his parents' divorce, was shot and killed. In 1975, his younger sister Karen was abducted, raped, and murdered. In 1980, his twin half-brothers died in a scuba diving accident, and in 2001, David Angell, close friend and producer of Frasier, died in the 9/11 attacks." -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on June 7, 2011, 5:49 pm

I say we make the practice of "Plutism" a hate crime. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on June 7, 2011, 3:37 pm

Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young - Music Groups
Correction: That should read "...I only wish Neil Young..." (Must have been that fifth beer...) -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on June 7, 2011, 3:35 pm

Kelsey Grammer - Celebrities
What a slimeball he is, bad enough he left his wife for a younger girl half his age, but now he's wants custody for only one kid leaving the other kid, that's really low if you trying to seprate the siblings apart from each other. -- Submitted By: (SSM) on June 7, 2011, 2:08 pm

Supergirl - Movie Series
I think the only other role Helen Slater had (that I could think of) is when she was guest starring in Smallville as Clark Kent's bio mom Lor-El. -- Submitted By: (SSM) on June 7, 2011, 1:37 pm

Patti LaBelle - Music Groups
I knew that she a diva (that bad enough as it is), but what she done to the poor cadet is really low. What is up with some of these celebrities as soon as they hit big, all of the sudden they think they god-like or something and forget us "little people" who put them at the top at the first place. -- Submitted By: (SSM) on June 7, 2011, 1:31 pm

Duck Factory, The - TV Shows
Not a bad premise [and interesting to see a young Jim Carrey REALLY get into cartooning with the other characters]. Yet, it just didn't wash- primarily because with everyone working together to save this floundering cartoon studio, there were no antagonists beyond the wolf a the door. Maybe folks weren't ready to get nostalgic about real cartoons at this point. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on June 7, 2011, 12:48 pm

Patti LaBelle - Music Groups
A pox on the celebrities who use their fame and status to mistreat people like this cadet. Patti, hope you brought chips for your fish boning. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on June 7, 2011, 12:37 pm

Supergirl - Movie Series
How is a movie that's even LESS fondly remembered by Supe fans than "Superman Three" considered a 'series'? I hope Helen Slater's life has improved since this debacle. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on June 7, 2011, 12:30 pm

Christianity - Random Topics
That's really sad, Travoltron. They ruined their kid's life with their idiocy. But I doubt they care (how Christian of them!). I think they were just looking for excuses not to do anything for him. I hope in the future, he recovers from their "parenting skills". -- Submitted By: (Robert) on June 7, 2011, 11:47 am

If so, it would explain why Bill Maher's her friend. So much for the Twilight Zone. :P -- Submitted By: (Robert) on June 7, 2011, 11:40 am

"I meant no disrespect to my friend Robert". None taken. I thought he was anti-American like Jane. I have honor for those who serve in the military. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on June 7, 2011, 11:35 am

Pluto (Dwarf Planet) - Random Topics
You took the words out of my mouth, Soggy. It would have been cool to go from 9 planets to 13. Wait...did someone with a fear of the number 13 have a hand in Pluto's demotion? -- Submitted By: (Robert) on June 7, 2011, 11:34 am

Mood Rings - Random Topics
I wasn't born when mood rings first came out, but I did see several revivals in my childhood. As for the Mixed Emotions boning reason, that color is green, at least according to the Mood Rings chart at my local 7-11. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on June 7, 2011, 11:33 am

Elmo - Random Topics
I'm with you. I notice nobody's yet defended Elmo saying, "he's just a puppet". I guess Elmo really IS worse than Lisa! -- Submitted By: (Robert) on June 7, 2011, 11:33 am

Gilligan's Island - TV Shows
Oh I voted never boned for sure. Gilligan's Island can't be taken seriously. Ever. :) -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on June 7, 2011, 11:16 am

Patti LaBelle - Music Groups
A few months ago, as some of you may have heard, Ms LaBelle was sitting in her limo at the airport in Houston when she spotted a young man who appeared to her to be standing too close to her luggage, which was on the sidewalk. She ordered her bodyguards to take care of the situation, so one of them gave the young man a violent shove. Naturally he sought to protect himself, whereupon all three of LaBelle's bodyguards gave him a good beating. It turns out that he was a West Point cadet, home on leave; he'd had no designs on her luggage, and in fact was talking on his cellphone with his back to the luggage when he was attacked. (An airport security cam caught the entire incident.) A West Point cadet, for pete's sake! As far as I am concerned, Patti LaBelle is a lowlife bitch, and her punkass bodyguards need to have their heads cracked open. I hope the young man sues her for every goddamn dollar she's worth and wins. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on June 6, 2011, 9:42 pm

Burn Notice - TV Shows
The few episodes I've seen appear to be more style than substance. And I have developed an aversion over the years to TV characters who don't show fear under any circumstances. (Plus there are too many explosions.) However, the basic premise of the show is quite interesting, and I suspect that if I'd been following the series from its beginning I'd like it more than I do. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on June 6, 2011, 9:17 pm

Peter Fonda - Celebrities
Dol, you make a good point about dark movie endings becoming more common in the '70s. I think the Hays Code was discontinued in the late '60s, being replaced with the movie rating system. At any rate, much of it had been ignored or circumvented for years before its end, so I'm not sure whether the proliferation of films with less than happy endings was due to a relaxing of censorship standards or the general cynicism which descended on America - and especially on Hollywood - during that time. Also, I do remember Futureworld, which WAS pretty silly. (The earlier Westworld was kind of cool though, and I really hoped at the time that I would live long enough to see that sort of technology become reality.) -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on June 6, 2011, 7:56 pm

Christianity - Random Topics
One of my friends had the worst kind of parents: Christian liberals. Yeah, they exist. He couldn't have He-Man toys because they were "evil" and un-Christian. He couldn't have G.I. Joe because they were military toys with guns. He grew up to be a rather unambitious wuss. I just don't get these kinds of people. I don't understand why someone would claim to follow a religion and then engage in and promote behaviors contrary to said religion. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on June 6, 2011, 5:46 pm

Mickey Mouse cartoons - Movie Series
He used to be mischievous. Then he became Disney's mascot character and got watered-down. Probably happened around the time his character design changed and he became "Caucasian Mickey", as Matt Groening calls it. Mickey Mouse Club and Walt no longer doing the voice were also BTF moments. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on June 6, 2011, 5:25 pm

Gilligan's Island - TV Shows
you cannot take a silly show like this seriously, sure every episode had 101 problems i mean every ones wearing long sleeve shirts on a tropical island??and if the howells were as rich as they say they were, wouldnt they be on their own private yacht?but they show never boned it was always just silly fun. -- Submitted By: (hifijohn) on June 6, 2011, 3:51 pm

Nelson - Music Groups
I have a feeling the reaction to these two young fellows breaks along gender lines: Women love them and men (including me) are scratching their heads in confusion. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on June 6, 2011, 2:21 pm

Kid Rock - Music Groups
I'm as openminded as anyone, but I've never understood this guy's appeal. To me his fame is as inexplicable as Meat Loaf's was, back in the day. (At least Meat Loaf is a likable guy, whereas Kid Rock just strikes me as a snot.) -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on June 6, 2011, 2:15 pm

Bush (band) - Music Groups
The first album is excellent, and three or four tracks from the Science of Things album are memorable. Golden State is a decent return to their original sound, from which they had drifted for several years. But overall, the band hasn't truly lived up to its potential. They recently reunited, however, and are set to release a new album in late 2011; hopefully I'll be pleasantly surprised by it (even though it's being produced by Bob Rock, who in my opinion is highly overrated as an engineer/producer). -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on June 6, 2011, 2:09 pm

Clash, The - Music Groups
Shouldn't this be listed under the letter C? Did I enter it incorrectly? Don't the administrators here make sure that submissions beginning with the word "The" are located according to the first letter of the second word, or is that the job of the person who submits the subject? Very confusing, and I hope this mistake is fixed. As for the band, they never really boned, though it is true that the last album ought not to have seen the light of day. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on June 6, 2011, 1:52 pm

Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young - Music Groups
I say they never boned. Their later work doesn't do much for me, but as long as the set lists on their tours are heavy on the old stuff, they continue to satisfy me. The harmonies are certainly still there. I only with Meil Young would tour with them, but his own schedule is too crowded to allow that. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on June 6, 2011, 1:45 pm

Jericho - TV Shows
I completely agree with Scatcatpdx on this. What started as an intriguing what-if story focusing on a small town's reaction to a momentous, disorienting - and on its face plausible - event, quickly became just another conspiracy theorist's wet dream. It could have been much more interesting as a sort of down-to-earth "Day After" tale, with authentic characters struggling to regain their bearings and rebuild their little world. (A tale from which we might have learned something about ourselves.) But no; the producers took the easy, short-sighted route of making a soap-operatic, nothing-is-as-it-seems, plot-twist-heavy romp through a cardboard landscape of cliched apocalyptic cynicism - the very sort of tired theme to which Hollywood suits (and, sadly, writers) turn when they can't think of anything original (which is all the damn time). I watched the entire series run, but I didn't like it. (It sort of reminded me of the movie Independence Day, which also started in a promising manner and then devolved into a stupid, cliche-heavy comedy that made me feel at its end as if I had been thoroughly ripped off.) -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on June 6, 2011, 1:39 pm

Classmates.com - Websites
I suppose the main point I was making on my previous post is that Classmates.com "boned " WHEN it went from being a free site to being a 'pay-to-play' site. By mentioning Facebook, I was merely pointing out that it IS possible to build a lucrative business on the "free" social networking model. Classmates.com kinda missed the mark on that one and thus boned. -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on June 6, 2011, 1:37 pm
