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.

Don Kirshner's Rock Concert - TV Shows
I remember my TV going out on me one night, circa 1974, just before this show came on. The featured band was Uriah Heep, and I'd been looking forward to the show all week. Major buzzkill. Wikipedia lists the Sex Pistols as having played on the show, which surprises me. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on May 7, 2011, 1:16 am

No show captures the upbeat nature of late-'60s TV - a period featuring quite alot of cheerful programming - better than That Girl. It was a real charmer from first to last, and Marlo Thomas made me strongly reconsider my fixation on blondes. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on May 7, 2011, 12:50 am

Office, The - TV Shows
Very strange episode last night. I figured they'd get rid of DeAngelo in a much darker manner. He'd have a nervous breakdown, or he'd become so insufferable that Jim and Dwight would be forced to set him up to be fired, or maybe he'd do something illegal and end up in jail. In other words, something with a dark-edged finality to it. Instead they have him injure himself in a basketball exhibition. Sort of a lighthearted end to a mini-arc I was sure would play out more dramatically. I won't say this ending was a cop-out, in the sense that the last-second Michael-and-Pam-at-the-airport scene last week was, but it did seem to indicate a desire on the part of the producers to play it safe - and that's never a good sign.

The same people who've suddenly decided to speak out against all the "meanies" who are happy that someone who literally took pleasure from killing innocents got what he deserved are the ones who will wish death on somebody if they're insulted or even disagreed with. I've seen it happen on the net too many times. These days people don't think any crime's a big deal--unless it happens to them, then all that tolerance and who are you to judge stuff goes right out the window. Which is why I cannot take their opinions seriously and neither should you. -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on May 6, 2011, 6:15 pm

ESPN - Random Topics
The NFL draft coverage was for me the sign of ESPN's slow and steady demise. Chris Berman should of retired 5-10 years ago, Mel Kiper Jr. annoys the crap out of me with his formulas and systems for judging draft picks, Jon Gruden might be the most annoying sports announcer I've ever heard in history and his grilling of quarterbacks is pompous and ridiculous, Suzy Kolber making Mark Ingram cry by bringing up his dad was totally inappropriate, and everything else seemed gossipy and over the top. I switched over to the NFL Network and it was much, much better. ESPN has forgotten sports over the last few years and goes for sensational garbarge, probably in no small part due to Disney's ownership in the network. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on May 6, 2011, 4:27 pm

(I know it's a blasphemous thing to admit, but there it is.) But Ozzy's last two albums sucked ass too. Basically Sabotage was the last album that impressed me, so I guess that means I have to give the Bone Date as about 1976. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on May 6, 2011, 12:25 pm

Osama bin Laden - Celebrities
The thing is that, yes Bin Laden was a human being. Maybe it is wrong to celebrate the death of another human being regardless of who they are or what they've done in life. However (and I think this is the kicker), as others have said, Bin Laden was responsible for thousands of deaths world wide, not to mention the level of destruction. Think of all of the people that have lost family and/or friends because of this man. Take a look at the NY Skyline. It hasn't been the same since 9/11 and never will be the same. And that's just from his most infamous attack. This man hid protected while people loyal to him died for his cause. I don't recall OBL ever showing any regret or remorse for his actions. He destroyed lived all around the world and walked free to live his all while people suffered (and STILL suffer) because of his actions. From what I gather, the Soldiers that took OBL down in that Operation did so in a way that killed him quickly. They even treated his body with dignity and decency when they buried him at sea. The level of restraint it must have taken to do that is commendable to say the least. Despite all of this, people are objecting to others showing joy that OBL is dead? What do these people want? How do they expect people to react to news that a man that caused so much pain, destruction and loss of life, got away with it until now and to the best of my knowledge, showed no remorse? But when people have been waiting the better part of a decade (some even perhaps far longer) for the capture/death of a man celebrate when it finally happens? Perhaps people need to think about the wrongs that man is responsible for before thinking about whether or not it's wrong to celebrate his death. -- Submitted By: (ExplodingConsole) on May 6, 2011, 11:57 am

Law - Random Topics
Dol, I agree that the system is fouled up. But I don't believe America was "taken over" by anyone, so I recognize no such correlation as you describe. The fact is that justice has been uneveny applied, and laws inconsistently enforced, since our country's earliest years. What we see today is hardly a recent phenomenon. A good number of the social movements you probably resent were a sort of backlash against an environment in which laws were often not enforced as they should have been. I should add here that it strikes me as strange that we are saying "Law" itself boned the fish. That's the sort of viewpoint one would expect from anarchists and criminals who resent the existence of laws in the first place. If we are going to debate whether the American justice system, or the American legal code, has gone past its prime, the topic on this page should be named The American Justice System or The American Legal Code instead of the vaguely-defined word "Law". -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on May 6, 2011, 3:09 am

My first few months after moving to Seattle saw me in the temp world. It was one of the most depressing, humiliating periods in my life; I always felt utterly valueless at the end of the day. To borrow a bit of Vietnam-era Army lingo, I felt - and was generally treated - like the FNG. So in later years, when I became a manager and needed the services of a temp agency, I would treat my temps EXTREMELY well, and I made sure my staff did too. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on May 6, 2011, 2:04 am

As usual, Kingbk is the voice of reason amid the cacophony of "My dogma is better than your dogma, nenny nenny nyehhh!" Why are these silly spitfests so often allowed to overwhelm (and sidetrack us from) a topic whose intrinsic interest hardly needs the sorts of sociopolitical embellishments you people load it down with? How about this: The South is a picturesque place filled with interesting people, good music and great food. There is no single monolithic Southern Culture, and Southerners have as great a diversity of viewpoints as any other segment of society. Most of the sneering cliches and stereotypes snooty Easterners attach to the region are either long out of date or never reflected reality in the first damn place. I have met very few Southerns I didn't like, and I've known more than a few for whom I'd take a bullet. The climate I can do without, and there are too many snakes down there for my taste.

Johnny Cash has no special significance to me. Neither does John C Reilly. The only "cheesy formula" is an attitude of exagerated self-importance from second rate comedians who try to convince us they're lampooning some "cliche". Actually this is a way of selling crap to the public which lacks originality and just isn't funny. Your babbling about "sacred cows","cliches" is just your own exaggerated sense of self importance. None of these biopics are alike. The writers, producers and actors in movies like this know the kind of pseudo-critics who will buy this as parody of "sacred cows" who take themselves too seriously and need to learn to have a good laugh over their brother's death. Thank God we have John C Reilly and people like you (and the writers and producers) who have taught us all to laugh at death. Thank you -- Submitted By: () on May 5, 2011, 10:33 pm

I couldn't disagree more with JayD: The '70s were to me the ultimate Vanilla Decade. There were some decent TV shows back then, and of course a number of classic movies, but there was also lots of empty-headed crap on both big screen and small. Pop culture was more vacuous than it had ever been before, and the fads and fashions we so loved back then look pretty childish to me now.

And when the suits dumped his replacement, the perfectly acceptable Bob Schieffer, in favor of a woman with the gravitas of a piece of Silly Putty, the boning process was complete. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on May 5, 2011, 2:48 am

John C. Reilly - Celebrities
Well, Irbloom, I do appreciate your passion; clearly Johnny Cash has some sort of super-exalted untouchable status in your eyes. Look, I'm not into icons and sacred cows. In my world, nobody is above being lampooned. And the celebrity biopic format, which tends to take itself waaaayyyy too seriously, invites parody with its attitude of self-importance, not to mention the cheesy formula it always uses. (Sudden fame, trouble handling fame, heartbreak, fall from grace, redemption - a formula rife with cliches and just begging to be made fun of.) And as a said earlier, there are more appropriate people to blame for a movie you don't like, starting with the producers, writers and director. In the case of Walk Hard, that means exactly two people: Jake Kasdan and Judd Apatow. They are the ones who (supposedly) dissed your beloved Man in Black; the actor Mr Reilly was only following their direction. But hey, I'm sure you're not alone; there are probably some grim and earnest fans of the King Arthur mythos who would like to see everyone associated with Monty Python & The Holy Grail burned at the stake. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on May 5, 2011, 2:27 am

Andromeda - TV Shows
Another show that Gene Roddenberry made despite being dead. I always pictured TV producers conjuring him via seance or Ouija boards. Other people here have alluded to it already, but I should elaborate. Kevin Sorbo thought this ensemble show was all about HIM and threw his weight around to make it so. The series creator didn't want to go along with this, so Sorbo got him fired. Sorbo was jealous of all the attention co-star Keith Hamilton Cobb was getting (especially be female fans) and made things miserable for him until he quit. The last season or two were completely unintelligible. You'll notice you don't see him much in anything these days and I'm sure that's largely due to the way he treated his cast and crew. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on May 4, 2011, 11:12 pm

Earth - Final Conflict - TV Shows
I was always amazed how Gene Roddenberry continued to put out TV shows despite the handicap of being dead. I found this show as dull as dishwater and I can't believe it ran for five seasons. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on May 4, 2011, 10:49 pm

M*A*S*H - TV Shows
You know what's funny about the M*A*S*H franchise? Every incarnation gets progressively worse. The novel is an under rated classic that will make you laugh like an idiot. The 1970, while a dark comedy classic, didn't have the same vibe the novel had. Still, though, it's a classic that everyone should see at least once. The TV show is a classic example of a show staying past its welcome. What started out as a great ensemble sitcom became Alan Alda's personal soapbox. It really is a shame because, for about 6 or 7 seasons, M*A*S*H was a really great sitcom with a lot of heart. -- Submitted By: (dcvianc) on May 4, 2011, 3:59 pm

Miami Vice - TV Shows
I once saw a poster of Alfalfa and Buckwheat of "Our Gang" fame 'updated' to Miami Vice complete with those 80's threads. No surprise that "Our Gang" has proven timeless despite its Depression origins while "Miami Vice" proved dated almost as soon as it aired despite [because?] of the hype. What are Don Johnson and Phillip Michael Thomas doing these days anyway? -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on May 4, 2011, 3:52 pm

Los Angeles - Random Topics
I remember hearing about its clouds of smog and had always thought that to be an exaggeration- until I saw them for myself flying in when the plane refueled! I had had the amazing experience of having flown all the way across the USA without a single cloud in the sky from Chicago on and had gained an appreciation for pioneers in covered wagons having had to cross vast tracts of wastelands in which I could see no water sources and very few plants from my vantagepoint - but then I hit the LA city limits and BINGO ugly brown and black clouds of smog were hanging there despite being right next to the Pacific Ocean! Yeah, it looked as though some kindergartner had dipped cotton balls into mud and soot and hung them over a cityscape! And the famous Hollywood Sign? It seemed to be perched on a tiny mountain island in an ocean of city sprawl. Yep, all that was enough to convince me to never move there- although one day I may be tempted to visit it to take in its Spanish colonial, post-Gold Rush+ movie capital history. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on May 4, 2011, 3:43 pm

soggy, even premium cigars can bone one's mouth, throat and lungs with cancer- which is I only smoked one to celebrate the New Millenium and have no intention of doing it again for another 989 years!. Regardless of the PSA, keep in mind that even Sigmund Freud himself said that sometimes a cigar is ONLY a cigar! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on May 4, 2011, 3:32 pm

Wizard of Oz, The - Movie Series
Those Munchkins were wrong to rejoice in the death of the Wicked Witch of the East. And how do we know the Witch is really dead? We're just supposed to take the word of one guy that she's "really, truly dead"? What are this man's credentials? And I hope her crushed remains were disposed of in according to Wiccan custom. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on May 4, 2011, 1:59 pm

As for the phantom quote, does anyone doubt that Dennis Kucinich is capable of giving us such a quote? (By the way, thanks, Dol, for the retraction regarding Oprah. Not that I'm a huge fan of hers, but there's no sense in letting a false charge make the rounds.) I tell people that being an atheist allows me to declare without guilt that I wish OBL had been shot in a location that would have caused him severe pain for several hours before he died. A head shot was far too merciful for the bastard. I'm also unmoved by the controversy over the corpse's disposal. If I'd had my way, that carrier's crew would have attached the body to a raft, then had some fun spraying it with the Phalanx 20mm gun.

Thanks for clearing up the weepy MLK fake quote. Apparently it was a college student- big surprise. Will they make a new falsely attributed quote up when the SEALS kill Ayman Al-Zawahiri (Bin Laden's best pal and new Al- Quaida #1 guy?)?? -- Submitted By: (Chubby Rain) on May 4, 2011, 6:40 am

Problem Solverz, just when you thought CN couldn't get any stupider. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4dHyB1kRDNc The sad thing is, whenever Cartoon network does something that makes me feel like they might redeem themselves, they always do something (like this) that makes me lose even more faith in them. -- Submitted By: (cartooner) on May 4, 2011, 2:57 am

Osama bin Laden - Celebrities
I had a feeling that the "I will mourn the death of anyone, even my enemy" line was just something that someone made up, and not said by Martin Luther King. BTW, I know the death of someone can be sad, but it's hard to be sad when it's the death of someone like Bin Laden, Hitler, or Heinrich Himmler (the guy who made concentration camps), considering that they killed millions of people in their lifetimes. -- Submitted By: (cartooner) on May 4, 2011, 12:14 am

I can see why people think celebrities would defend the 9/11 hijackers: Bill Maher called them "brave", for example. Anyhow, it's nice to see left and right (and center) finally agree on something. And Travoltron, who can blame your pessimism? It took almost a decade to get him. I was beginning to think old age was going to get him before the troops did. I wonder: How many people who refuse to celebrate Osama's death had no problem celebrating Jerry Falwell's death? -- Submitted By: (Robert) on May 3, 2011, 8:59 pm

Like I suspected, the line "I mourn the loss of thousands of precious lives, but I will not rejoice in the death of one, not even an enemy" was never spoken by King. Some bleeding-heart nobody made it up and attached MLK's name to it and people lapped it up without checking their facts. http://www.theatlantic.com/national/archive/2011/05/out-of-osamas-death-a-fake-quotation-is-born/238220/ -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on May 3, 2011, 7:20 pm

Thanks Kingbk!!! We wouldn't steer you wrong :-) And the sad part is, I KNEW the left would react this way. Just google "Rashard Mendenhall tweet" for some REAL absurdity. How can those people live with themselves??? If they really believe this, how can America ever stop declining until the right is put back in charge of society again like it was pre-60s? Also, I have to take back what I said about Oprah. I could've sworn she said that at the time but I can't find anything on the net to verify it. I'm thinking it was actually Rosie O' Donnell who said this or words to that effect, and since she and Oprah were tight at the time I just assumed Oprah thought that way too. So I was wrong about that. (But not about the majority of celebs feeling that way, I really believe that.) -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on May 3, 2011, 6:52 pm

Chubby Rain, sometimes you, along with DolFan, can be a bit heavy handed with your pro-right wing, anti-left wing beliefs, but I agree with you 100% today.

Travoltron, I've been enjoying all the weepy MLK quotes on the internet as well.

This is a very sad day indeed, how are we not going to miss such an omnipresent and influential man. It will be a day that no-one should forget since a man that everyone must know about and respect his viewpoints due to how they influencced an entire decade for the better and the worse. Everyone - PLEASE - leave this guy alone, he just died. Think of his family and friends. ............. Just kidding, at last this terrorist is dead and now having to suffer in hell or go to a much lower life form in the next life for all the pain and torment that he and his cronies are responsible for both directly and indirectly. First it was Saddam Hussein, now Osama bin Laden. The world is now a brighter place. Now, who's for a seafood buffet? It's all on me tonight. -- Submitted By: (johnnydough) on May 3, 2011, 3:07 am
