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.

I must have been mistaken about Henry. I could have sworn he was anti-American. If not, I apologetically withdraw my accusation. I doubt anyone will argue with Jane Fonda being a traitor. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on June 4, 2011, 10:23 pm

I've already established I neither love nor hate her, but she's starting to get annoying. I mean, her critics' biggest issue is that she's always in the limelight, demanding attention.

Real Time with Bill Maher - TV Shows
What do you mean, a person can't be evil if they're dumb?

wilddrawfour, I used to be a liberal. During that time I was told and shown how conservatives are intolerant, bigoted, and more...by TV. For the longest time, this successfully turned me against them. Then, when Bush took office, I saw liberals could be just as intolerant and bigoted...even more so. But watching TV, I saw that nobody got on their case for it. That's when I realized there was a liberal bias. As for your post, I want to address some of your points. Just because I'm against liberal bias does not mean I want it replaced with conservative bias. I wrote, "People want to be entertained, not told what to think." Second, just because I post an article that proves liberal bias exists means I'm a bigot? The liberal bias isn't limited to gay rights; it covers other things, too. As for alleged homophobia, liberals don't have a monopoly on tolerance. No more than conservatives have a monopoly on morals. Using the same logic, a person who's against conservatism is against morals. Are you anti-moral, wilddrawfour? I don't think so. In fact, in another related article, one writer admitted the shows were just "One big F*** you" to conservatives. How is THAT tolerance? That sounds like belittling an opposing viewpoint...which you criticize Limbaugh and his ilk over. You're basically telling me: "Well, Fox News and Limbaugh, Hannity, and Coulter are biased to the right, so it's OK for everything else to be biased to the left." Don't liberal pundits Matthews, Olbermann, Moore, and Maher balance out Limbaugh and other conservative pundits? If you want to eliminate conservative viewpoints from your TV, you need only block out Fox (that means no more Family Guy, The Simpsons, American Dad, and The Cleveland Show. Wait, liberal shows on a conservative network??). Speaking of the gay agenda, before you criticize Conservatives for opposing gay marriage, many liberals defend a group which is even more anti-gay: radical Islam. If you come out of the closet where radical Islam rules, execution awaits you. Killing someone for being gay is certainly a lot WORSE than denying them the right to marry, right? And Dolfan makes good points. Forcing people to accept your beliefs is not "tolerance". Encouraging people to treat you with respect even though you're different from them is. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on June 4, 2011, 10:13 pm

Soggy, Just to clarify for everyone else reading this who may not know of the family history, the World War II service record refers to HENRY Fonda not his son Peter! BTW, one my grandmothers happened to run into Henry Fonda in Macy's back in the early 1960's and calmly told him that she'd always liked his acting and he politely thanked her with a smile[ no autograph was sought or given here].

Sarah Palin - Celebrities
Update to last post: Just heard Sarah's MANGLING of the story of Paul Revere. Can she really be this stupid? Is this the Tea Party's standard-bearer (or potential kingmaker) for next year's presidential race? Is this the right's light of salvation? Is this a legitimate heir to Ronald Reagan? (You can bet Reagan knew the Paul Revere story as well as anyone.) This is a woman in her 40s - a woman who fancies herself an American leader - and she is butt-ignorant of the details of one of the great events of her country's history. One would think that after 2008's exposure of her painfully limited brainpower, she would have decided it was time to give herself an education commensurate with her aspirations, and crack open a goddamn book or two. But no. In Sarah's world, all you need are ideological loyalty and nice legs; booklearnin' and such are tools of the Devil and must be avoided. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on June 4, 2011, 2:22 am

Simple, subtle practical jokes are fun and funny for all involved. That's the point. No one gets hurt (physically or emotionally). Pouring paint in someone's hair who is passed out isn't funny.

I think Sean Penn is approaching Hanoi Jane territory. I wasn't around for 'Nam, so I'll have to defer to Soggy's judgment on this one. Bill Maher on the other hand is just a bitter failed stand-up comic.

There is a gay agenda though. It's not about marriage--I don't care if gays get married or not. If they think they can do the marriage thing better than us straights than I say let 'em. Who knows, they might be right. The gay agenda is to force that orientation down everyone's throats in much the same way being straight was forced down their throats for centuries. Other than the marriage thing (which is rapidly changing) they already had the same rights as everyone else. Gays and other minority groups don't want equal rights, they want their own special set of rights in addition to that. It's all about getting revenge on the evil straight white male. Problem is, I don't personally recall oppressing or discriminating against anybody. I never tried to take anyone's rights away, so why are they trying to get more rights than mine? -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on June 3, 2011, 7:10 pm

Calling him the Jane Fonda of the Iraq War is elevating him waaaayyyyy beyond his true propaganda-tool value. Nobody, and I mean NOBODY, among today's American antiwar celeb crowd can even remotely be compared to Hanoi Jane circa 1972, either in attitude or behavior. And for the record, Hitler was not a "great" artist.

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.

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.

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

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

Elmo destroyed Sesame Street, I think I remember him being one of minor background charcaters before that Tickle Me Elmo made him popular. Besides pushing Glover ,Oscar and Big Bird into the background, they also cut most classic segments too, ethier shorter or not shown at all for that 20+ mins of crap they called Elmo World. -- Submitted By: (SSM) on May 31, 2011, 4:26 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

Commercial radio is good for call-in talk shows and little else. And public radio is not much better. The proliferation of podcasts, of every conceivable variety, and create-your-own-music-station services, pretty much makes conventional radio a quaint anachronism. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on May 31, 2011, 11:59 am

From his show getting axed when he made those comments about the terrorists after 9/11, to calling Sarah Palin a c**t and everything in between, this . . . creature, because I refuse to call him a man . . . has a long and storied tradition of bottom feeding.

Hugh O'Connor - Celebrities
In 1995, O'Connor's son Hugh committed suicide after a long battle with drug addiction. Following his son's death, O'Connor appeared in public service announcements for Partnership for a Drug Free America and spent the rest of his life working to raise awareness about drug addiction. O'Connor also successfully lobbied to get the State of California to pass legislation allowing family members of an addicted person or anyone injured by a drug dealer's actions, including employers, to sue for reimbursement for medical treatment and rehabilitation costs. The law, known as the Drug Dealer Civil Liability Act in California, went into effect in 1997. Eleven other states followed with similar legislation, which has been referred to as The Hugh O'Connor Memorial Law. -- Submitted By: (lrbloom) on May 31, 2011, 4:02 am

Telemarketing/Telesales - Random Topics
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

Rap (music) - Random Topics
I think the East coast vs. West coast rap wars were both the climax and decline. Rap was at a peak talentwise, but the songs started entering the now familiar territory of demeaning women, talking of drugs and money. 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

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.

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
