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.

Lady Gaga - Music Groups
Image. Fashion icon. Performance artist. Media phenomenon. Avant-garde envelope pusher. This is what it means to be at the highest reaches of the pop world. The music is secondary, or even tertiary; it's all about "Artist-as-Experience". And people wonder why I prefer good old honest Scandinavian death metal to this sort of nonsense. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on June 1, 2011, 2:44 am

Lance Armstrong - Celebrities
.....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

Avengers, The - TV Shows

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

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

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.

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.

Someone clearly had a tin ear when it came to the mood of the American electorate. "Hey, let's make a sitcom about an American company that moved its labor force to India. I'm sure all the millions of Americans who are out of work because their company did the same thing will just absolutely love a show like that, assuming they aren't three months behind on their power bill and have had their electricity turned off, har har har!" This subject is about as funny as a heart attack, and the fact that it could get on the air at all only proves how disconnected TV-industry execs are from the viewers who have made them so rich. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on May 28, 2011, 6:10 am

Apparently I've lived a sheltered life because I've never heard of these things before now. They seem to beg the question of how to evaluate their fish-boning status. If taken as a serious evangelizing aid, it's probably fair to say they boned from the moment of their creation. (Has anyone actually converted to Mr Chick's odd strain of Christianity as a result of reading them?) If the tracts are taken as the sort of unintentionally amusing propaganda that characterizes, say, the film Reefer Madness, I'd say they provide too many chuckles to have boned. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on May 28, 2011, 1:41 am

I seem to recall it about the same way. It was only on for about one season. I seem to recall it leaving next to no impression other than being a blatant almost condescending attempt to cash in on "The Waltons" popularity. Notice the title. It told people that if you think this sounds sacharine, you're probably right. This was definitely a here today gone tomorrow type show, I don't remember anyone saying anything at all about it, while "The Waltons" had a fanbase, this never was around long enough to develop one. It was instantly the kind of show that you love to change the channel on . Networks were unashamed about blatant rip-offs of a successful shows; e.g. ethnic comedies, nighttime soaps, reality shows, etc. This show was laughable than anything. -- Submitted By: (lrbloom) on May 27, 2011, 9:33 pm

Batman: The Brave and the Bold - TV Shows
Mixed feelings on this one. From what I've seen of it, I can't deny it's a well-made show. But why couldn't it have been just "The Brave and the Bold"? Why shoehorn Batman into every single story? All the other superheroes are written as idiots or buffoons to make Batman look better. I guess I feel that the Batman character should stay somewhat "dark". That's the way he started out and it took a lot of work to get him back that way after people became accustomed to the silly Batman of the '60s. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on May 27, 2011, 8:00 pm

Lisa Simpson - Random Topics
There are two trains of argument on this board. One, that the character has become excessively, irritatingly strident and self-righteous over the years; and two, that these traits are being spun in a positive way by the show's producers because she is voicing their own views. From what little of the show I see these days, I can see plenty of evidence to support the first claim, and rather little to support the second (at least insofar as the more sharply leftwing stances are presented as how we viewers ought to think). And if the second claim were in fact accurate, the fault rightly belongs with the producers rather than with their mouthpiece character. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on May 27, 2011, 7:35 pm

Apples Way - TV Shows
I think I was about 9 years old when this show came out and I don't really remember a lot about it. What I do recall is this, 'The Walton's' were VERY popular at the time and 'Apple's Way', when it debuted, was being billed as sort of a 'modern-day Waltons' (you know, kinda like "Hey if you like The Walton's, then yew'll loooooooooove this..."). I remember watching a few episodes, but the show obviously made very little impression on me as I do not recall any of the plots of what I saw and then I just gave up on it. Heck, I had no idea it went more than one season and was even re-booted as a sitcom. -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on May 27, 2011, 4:11 pm

I consider myself fairly left when it comes to environmentalism and far-left when it comes to animal rights-- and she even annoys me at times.

Wikipedia - Websites
Wikipedia was chum fodder before their conflict with BTF users, and even if the conflict never happened, my opinion would still be the same. For many of their entries, if you compare two certain ones, you'll see the bias. Try to correct errors (which end up portraying their "saints" in a negative light), and watch your contribution get deleted. Many admins refuse to accept facts, even if you have a reliable source. They'll just make up some excuse to delete it and rationalize their excuse. All the reasons you see against Wikipedia are valid. Just about all were put up here before the conflict over BTF's entry. However, I respect those who contribute to Wikipedia in the name of spreading the truth and knowledge. Unlike the hijackers who use Wikipedia as their very own propaganda machine. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on May 27, 2011, 12:56 pm

Lisa Simpson - Random Topics
Remember though with the wacking day episode, Bart helped as well. Remember that it was Bart that pointed out the inconsistencies in the history books that proved that wacking day was a sham. And yes, Bart was acting like a jerk (beyond jerk) in the babysitting episode. While I can understand why he was so upset, it doesn't make his actions right or acceptable. He was justified in his indignation. However, acting as he acted only served to show that he *really* needed a babysitter. Notice however that when Bart goes with Lisa as an equal that his behaviour and intellect are often considerably better. Also don't forget what Bart did in the episode where Lisa was rebelling and took the teachers copies of the text books. I've also noticed that there is one word that can often sum up why Bart misbehaves when he misbehaves: Homer. Notice that when Lisa uses her indignation and morals for good and Bart is on her side and they work together that they make a pretty kick-ass team? Then again, Homer is the same guy that said "Bart can kiss my hairy yellow butt" when Marge expressed worry that Bart would be jealous of Lisa (i.e., when Lisa was born. Homer also declared Lisa to be wave of the future when her intelligence was blooming. When Bart was at the same time starting to have issues, Homer took an attitude of writing Bart off as a failure. Bart Simpson strikes me as the kind of person that could be a good kid. Heck, he could be a damn good and smart kid (let's just forget that Simpson gene garbage they came up with in that one episode) if it wasn't for bad influences like Homer and the bullies. Lisa in encouraged to be the best she can be while Bart is encouraged to be an ass. Notice that in early episodes, they had Bart and Lisa being successful as an adult? Later ones have Bart being more of a failure and Lisa more successful. Perhaps the problem with Lisa isn't Lisa per say. It's that they're making Bart and Homer look increasingly worse to make Lisa look better. Everyone has become caricatures of themselves. Lisa is a victim of the same issue Homer is once you get down to it. -- Submitted By: (ExplodingConsole) on May 27, 2011, 12:56 pm

Lisa Simpson - Random Topics
Lisa wasn't always bad, but they made her that way. She used to be the voice of reason, just like Marge. I think another reason people resent Lisa could stem from once liking her as the voice of reason and seeing she's de-evolved into a crazed activist. Stan and Kyle (usually) don't ram their ideas down the viewers' throats, they just "learned something today". Speaking of South Park, I see a comparison between Lisa's vegetarianism vs the South Park boy's vegetarianism: Lisa ruins Homer's BBQ, the boys steal calves from a veal farm. Both Lisa and the boys disrespect their parents (Stan even tells his parents to "kiss [his] ass"). Lisa's still a vegetarian, the boys stopped after Stan got sick from it. Lisa was never punished for what she had done. The boys, however, were punished despite "learning something today". When it comes to their opinions, Lisa is hyper-left, while the boys are more balanced. If they were to suddenly tilt hyper-right, there's a good chance they'd be hated as much as Lisa. Perhaps more so. Also, considering how awful the Simpsons had gotten in the past decade--and STILL being kept on the air--it's not hard to see why people have more respect for Parker and Stone than they do for Groening. When Parker and Stone do an episode with a political message, I hear: "Here's what we think about it. If you don't agree with us, OK, fine." Unlike Lisa, in which disagreeing with her means you are "wrong, wrong, WRONG!" -- Submitted By: (Robert) on May 27, 2011, 12:38 pm

Listening to these calls, and to the raw emotions of Howard's crew, made for some truly compelling radio. Equally as important, the extended live edition of the show was a real public service, and both Howard and WXRK management deserve a huge amount of credit for it. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on May 27, 2011, 1:40 am

But, it would not surprise me to learn that a Lenny & Squiggy spin-off had been considered (spin-offs were all the rage in those days). -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on May 26, 2011, 11:43 pm
