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.

Zero Tolerance Policies - Random Topics
Zero-tolerance policies are the lazy person's guide to people management. Examining each case on its individual merits, and making their decisions accordingly, require managers to use their brains. Making an official zero-tolerance policy (with its attendant mandatory penalty) the final arbitor in a case allows managers to avoid having to use their brains (or at least whatever critical thinking skills they possess). This is why your more dull-witted management types embrace such policies. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on April 28, 2011, 3:25 pm

Hillary Clinton - Celebrities
Earth to Marcus: Please note there is no "Never Boned" option on this page (at least as of late April 2011). And having an opinion which differs from yours does not make someone an asshole. (Insulting people you don't know, however, comes awfully close to making you one.) I say this as someone who neither likes nor trusts Ms Clinton. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on April 28, 2011, 3:06 pm

I'm glad I'm not the only who felt that way about Will Smith's kids so-called careers. Nepotism is right. -- Submitted By: (SSM) on April 28, 2011, 1:14 pm

Michael Jordan - Celebrities
The guy understood the concept of "team". He understood that it's not supposed to be five selfish ego-drunk primadonnas out there on the court. He understood that no matter how good you are, sometimes you have to subordinate your desire for personal glory to the need to get the job done. Michael Jordan understood that there is glory, and tremendous value, in humility. His greatness came as much from that understanding as it did from his abilities. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on April 28, 2011, 8:06 am

Justin Bieber - Celebrities
DolFan, I give you kind of a hard time sometimes, but I do appreciate your answering my questions here. Not really knowing much about him, I didn't know he had a particularly obnoxious attitude about his place in the world. I just figured he was an overpromoted kid with a decent voice who makes young girls happy and makes parents scratch their heads. That struck me as harmless enough, and certainly not hateworthy. Nor have I felt put upon by the entertainment media to view him as a national treasure. (Actually, I'm pretty sure the entertainment media doesn't even bother trying to engage iconoclastic old farts like me.) Thanks again for the replies, and I hope the Dolphins have a good year. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on April 28, 2011, 4:12 am

High School - Random Topics
All I'll say about high school is that it would be nice to jump in a time machine and go back to that era. I'd befriend all the unpopular kids, knock the bullies on their asses, make fun of all the stuck-up "popular" girls to their faces, and just be a general rabble-rouser. Then I'd go home and thank my mom and dad for being such good parents. (They'd both faint, of course.) -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on April 28, 2011, 3:51 am

Well, except that isn't all she's doing, as the above mini-bio indicates; she's on a moderately successful TV series (for which she has won an Emmy and been nominated for two more), and has a major supporting role in next year's 4th Spider Man movie. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on April 28, 2011, 3:38 am

Verve, The - Music Groups
The Verve boned in 1999 when they broke up after their third album. The reunion album of 2008 was the merest echo of the band's former greatness; it told me they had long since said everything there was for them to say. Wisely, they appear to have called it quits yet again. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on April 28, 2011, 3:20 am

Sammy Hagar - Music Groups
Meh. A conventional mass-market rocker and nothing more. Compared to the warp-speed metal I favor, Sammy does indeed only drive 55.

I'll get this started.

IHOP - Random Topics
What the execs are too dumb to understand is that a workplace in which upselling is aggressively encouraged will communicate the clear message to a customer that he or she is viewed by the company as nothing more than a walking wallet. And on the planet where I live - which is clearly a different planet than these execs reside on - your average customer doesn't appreciate getting that message. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on April 28, 2011, 2:34 am

Snopes - Websites
I can't count the number of times I've been able, with the help of Snopes, to debunk some piece of hysterical silliness sent to me by a worried or outraged friend or relative. Having to deprogram folks on such a frequent basis is a melancholy task, but at least I have a ready ally when needed. (Of course, some people will express their embarrassment at having been hoodwinked by lashing out at the deprogrammer, so a thick skin helps.) What always amazes me is that the folks who fall the hardest for disinformation-packed forwarded emails are often the ones who seem to have the sharpest senses about the world around them. But, as any con artist or telemarketer can tell you, smart people are easier to fool than dumb people. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on April 28, 2011, 2:23 am

Osama bin Laden - Celebrities
It has been pointed out, and sensibly so, that our foolish Iraq enterprise deprived us of the services in Afghanistan of a good many troops who could have dramatically improved our chances of capturing or killing OBL. Personally, though, I suspect that half a million troops might not have been enough for the job.

Wiseguy - TV Shows
I agree that when Wahl left, there was little reason to hang around. And Roger Lococco turning out to be one of the good guys was a crashing disappointment. ("Tell me it ain't true, Buckwheat!") The first two storylines - featuring Ray Sharkey and Kevin Spacey, respectively - were the only ones I found interesting, though I tuned in to the later Garment District story just to see Jerry Lewis and Ron Silver, and a then-unknown Stanley Tucci, chew up the scenery. The Dead Dog Records story was only saved from serious lameness by Tim Curry's performance, and the Mafia succession story at the start of season 3 was just comic-book silly (even with such luminaries as Chazz Palminteri and Michael Chiklis). -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on April 28, 2011, 1:09 am

Sitcom - Random Topics
I think I started to notice when a sitcom lasted longer than it should have (mostly the 90's ones), it either turning almost unrealisticaly cartoonish or into a almost full-ledge melodramtic forgeting the comedy part. Cartoonish I don't mind, at least they still trying to keep it funny but dramedy is bad because it seem like they focus too much on the character devolpment too hard, the forget it's a comedy also. I don't see it too much in today's sitcoms though, as they keep a good balance between comedy and some drama. -- Submitted By: (SSM) on April 27, 2011, 7:09 pm

I say still rocks, since Robert still plays a lot of his older great material with new sounds and just has so many great songs. Unfortunately, I have to agree with the other poster that the band's actual recordings have been in a nosedive since Disentegration. Happens to every great band I guess... -- Submitted By: (MyWordIsGospel) on April 27, 2011, 3:53 pm

They definitely still rock. They kinda started to bone a little when There's Nothing Left to Lose came out with an overly poppy sound but luckily they didn't stick with that and aren't afraid to explore new ground as well as rock out hard.

Oakland Raiders - Random Topics
The move to L.A. was the boning moment. The team had some decent seasons there (1984 Super Bowl champions) and some great players like Marcus Allen and Bo Jackson, but the team became a fan favorite of L.A.-based gangs and soon the place was too dangerous to play at. This made people stay away from the stadium and home games to be known more for knife fights and violence rather than the games. Sure, Oakland was pretty rough too, but it looked like Pleasentville in comparison. The strange thing is, even after Al Davis moved the team back to Oakland, people in L.A. still act like the Raiders are their home team. I can't tell you how many cars with Raiders bumper stickers I've seen or how sporting goods stores have Raiders gear next to Lakers, Dodgers and Trojans gear. Also, Oakland hasn't been nearly as loyal since the return and who would blame them? -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on April 27, 2011, 10:24 am

I like to be able to check the news and sports scores on my PDA on the way to and from work. And the camera has been nice for capturing Adorable Baby Moments. Ironically, the weakest feature is the phone itself.

Circus Magazine can kiss my ass. The Dolls rocked as viciously as anybody back in the day. They were punk before punk was even barely understood - that's a good thing, by the way - and the fact that the stodgy mainstream music publications of the era couldn't comprehend them is more a reflection on those publications than it is on the band. Set aside the lurid outfits and androgynous appearance; the first two albums these guys created were groundbreaking and gutsy - and, as it turned out, hugely influential. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on April 27, 2011, 3:06 am

Indie Music - Random Topics
BrewMaster's translation needs some work. Mass-market artists are not necessarily "better" than obscure artists; they're just more well known (and generally more marketable). There are only two meaningful differences between U2 and, say, Sonic Youth: One, the size of their respective labels, and the exposure they've gotten as a result; and two, U2 is very conventional and formulaic, and doesn't engage in any sort of experimentation, or indeed in anything that challenges the listener, whereas Sonic Youth has been pushing the creative envelope for the last 30 years. If you prefer artists who play it safe and don't color outside the lines, and who are as much products as they are musicians, big-box bands are for you. Some of us, however, are a bit more adventurous. It has nothing to do with being "cool", and everything to do with a disinclination to follow the herd (or the corporations egging on the herd). -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on April 27, 2011, 2:42 am

This was an interesting case because the show started out as complete garbage due to early '70's "sensitivities" and then improved as it went along. It probably did peak with the "Challenge" season (the only season that I actually bothered to purchase), but IIRC the last couple of seasons were pretty good too, even if they were toy commercials. The final season even depicted Batman's origin, which had never been done before onscreen. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on April 26, 2011, 11:29 pm

Let me throw my hat in the ring for the defense of Bone the Fish! I love Bone the Fish because every one is entitled to their opinion and that's what makes it great. I like the fact we can go on here, talk about movies, TV shows, music, celebrities, etc., state what we honestly think, and have spirited debate with others on the board. In short, that's what this website is, an opinion board. If we all just agreed and it was nothing but the village of the happy people, I, speaking for myself, would be bored stiff. And not everyone just rags on everything. There are plenty of topics with positive feedback as well. I like I can go here with and state how crazy Donald Trump, Woody Allen, and Angelina Jolie are and hear what other people have to say. I like that I can discuss with others on this board if Back the Future boned with Part III or not. I like that some of us disagree on when Van Halen boned: when Sammy joined, when Gary joined, or never. That's what makes this board fun. Sure, for a while the board leaned left and lately it has leaned right, but political biases will always factor into opinions as well. In the end, we're just a bunch of people from all over sharing our opinions with each other. What's wrong with that? -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on April 26, 2011, 1:28 pm

I think BTF >> JTS then and now. If you think the politics is bad here, you might not have visited JTS enough. People got really vicious if they felt you were of "the wrong party".

There is far too much politically-charged rhetoric here. In that respect JTS was superior because its narrow focus - on TV shows only - provided far fewer opportunities for politically-obsessed people to inject their political views into the conversation. I know some people here are just itching to tell us all what they think about the left or the right, even when doing so is only minimally related to the subject at hand. (As if there are not already TONS of sites, devoted to political debates and whatnot, which they can visit to feed their need.) But must the rest of us be subjected to those views, over and over and over again? Can't we take a break from the stupid Left vs Right War and just have fun here? And I'm sorry but people who submit a new subject just for the purpose of bashing it into the ground really do need to take a hard look at themselves. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on April 25, 2011, 8:56 pm

But I do think that latest sting video conservative filmaker James O Keefe did hurt their rep. Now I know that the video was severely altered to fit with O Keefe's political propaganda but reguardless, it has put them in a dark light as Congress keeps trying to defund them. It is hard to decide wether to defund NPR as that would mean some stations would have to go dark, but it would be interesting to see if they could actually continue without the feds breathing down their back. -- Submitted By: (tvfan) on April 25, 2011, 8:20 pm

Unidentifed Flying Objects (UFOs) - Random Topics
Yeah, but if I'm an alien, I'd prefer test subjects who were fairly representative of the human species. (You know, folks with NORMAL brains and livers.) Besides, these must be dimwitted aliens because it's taking them an awfully long time - decades, it seems - to get our innards figured out. I call bullshit on the entire notion of alien visitations. Humanity has been broadcasting radio signals into space for a mere century, which means those signals have traveled about 100 lightyears. The odds of a spacefaring civilization living as close as 50 lightyears from Earth - that's 50 years for the earliest radio signals to reach them, a couple of days for them to immediately jump into their spaceships, and 50 more years for those spaceships, traveling at light-speed, to arrive here today - are pretty dim, if one considers that there are only a handful of stars that close to our solar system. (Besides, these alleged sightings have been taking place for a loooong time; the aliens would have had to depart their planet BEFORE the invention of radio on Earth, which begs the question of why they came this way in the first place. Subject this stuff to logic and hard science, and it falls to pieces. But it's romantic, and it feeds the psychological needs of some people, so it will continue to be believed (at least for as long as our public schools continue to do a poor job of teaching our kids). -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on April 25, 2011, 8:18 pm

Happy Days - TV Shows
I hate to echo an earlier submission, but when the hair on the actors began reaching unrealistic lengths, and the episodes began to be preposterously surreal, and the audience reactions to every-single-thing-Henry-Winkler-said-or-did began to drown out everything else, the fish of Milwaukee began to lose their bones.... -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on April 25, 2011, 7:38 pm

Michelle Pfeiffer - Celebrities
So YOU were the other guy? Sorry about that Soggy. If it's any consolation, after our torrid fling she wound up not marrying me either ;-) -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on April 25, 2011, 7:34 pm

South Park - TV Shows
First of all Soggy, by the "right people" I was referring more to celebs than anything else. Although I suppose they would pretty much all be on the left :-) Second, it's okay to make a statement when it illustrates how absurd American culture has become. Okay with me that is, I'm guessing your mileage may vary :-) -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on April 25, 2011, 7:26 pm

Justin Bieber - Celebrities
Okay, I'll answer those questions one by one. "Would you have Bieber forgo a musical career altogether out of some high-minded desire to avoid being packaged and sold as he has been?" A resounding YES!!! Oh dear God yes. We'd ALL have been better off. "That's my point: Never mind what these coldblooded corporate entities have done with him; what specifically has HE done to earn not only disdain but naked contempt from so many grownups?" Actually believing his own hype and believing he really is better than everyone else, for starters. "And what could he have done to have avoided that contempt?" Um, not trying to be famous just to be famous for one thing. Not deciding to act like a total jerkass for another. -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on April 25, 2011, 7:21 pm

Angelina Jolie - Celebrities
Oh Soggy, you know you really like us and you're addicted to this place :-) Plus thanks for drawing my attention to this. I can't believe I hadn't posted here before. Probably because I didn't want to bother giving Angelina any more attention than she already has and clearly craves. She also seems like one of those women who'd throw things at you when you got into the slightest argument, or wake you up with a gun barrel in your mouth, or change the locks when you went to work or the store one day. Not that *I've* ever had any experience with those things of course :-) -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on April 25, 2011, 7:17 pm

Politicians, political parties and religions should DEFINITELY be here, otherwise it's just all about celebs and TV shows, and that would be too boring. I love how this site has expanded on the original concept that way. -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on April 25, 2011, 7:12 pm

Lindsay Lohan - Celebrities
Rather than jump on this tedious bandwagon, I'll simply say that a good percentage of the people who lust after fame in America today are probably as ill-equipped to handle that fame as Ms Lohan has proven to be. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on April 25, 2011, 6:54 pm

Bill Clinton - Celebrities
Soggy is too busy defending France now to register for Bill Clinton never boning. Thanks for adding that reason. -- Submitted By: (Chubby Rain) on April 25, 2011, 6:03 pm

France - Random Topics
So the cliche of French Military incompetence. Soggy- please tell us of the great French military victories post Napolean getting his ass kicked at Waterloo. Dien Bien Phu, Algeria, World War 1, World War 2. France indeed. -- Submitted By: (Chubby Rain) on April 25, 2011, 6:01 pm

Lindsay Lohan - Celebrities
She is a pure embodiment and an epitome for boning, isn't she. Just you think she couldn't bone anymore than she is, she manage to bone even worst than before in a record breaking way. -- Submitted By: (SSM) on April 25, 2011, 3:59 pm

Bristol Palin - Celebrities
I think Bristol is doing the best she could under extreme circumstances. Yes, she was thrust into the spotlight when Sarah was nominated for VP but I think she using that spotlight in a good way to teach young girls it's not fun nor okay to have a baby when you are 12-18 years old. -- Submitted By: (SSM) on April 25, 2011, 3:30 pm

Smallville - TV Shows
I'm going to be to real sad once this show is gone. I know Clark is getting closer to Superman, Clark and Lois almost getting married to each other and Lex made his full tranformation to a supervillian but it still seems like it's going to be empty without Smallville on the CW (on TV for the fact) anymore. They had been mostly good episodes as well as few not-so good ones but Smallville will never boned. -- Submitted By: (SSM) on April 25, 2011, 3:08 pm

France - Random Topics
The French are what they are. They view their country, their principles, their language, and their culture as superior to all others - just like Americans view theirs, and Chinese view theirs, and Russians view theirs, and Arabs view theirs. The French are smug and arrogant, but no more so than we Americans are, and I am no more interested than a Frenchman would be in evaluating France or any other country by its usefulness to America, or by the degree to which it is willing or unwilling to help achieve America's goals. That kind of perspective is not only selfish but childishly stupid. Also, while the cliche of French military incompetence (or the corollary cliche of French cowardice) makes for some good jokes, it's really not grounded in reality. (It's rather like the '70s fiction that people of Polish heritage are dumb.) HOWEVER, the French really do need to learn a thing or two from their German neighbors about personal hygiene.... -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on April 25, 2011, 2:55 pm

Ryan Seacrest - Celebrities
Sometimes I flip past his radio show during my drive to work in the morning in SoCal. He has this absolutely terrible segment where someone calls in suspecting their significant other is cheating on them. Ryan then calls the significant other and sends them flowers to see their response. Either way, the significant other accepts the flowers or doesn't. No matter the response, everyone is a loser. The caller for either being wrong or being right, but with everyone knowing, the significant other for either looking like a complete sleaze or ignorant of their mate, and Ryan for being the jerk to pull the whole thing off. Yuck. Seacrest... Out! -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on April 25, 2011, 2:36 pm

Rock music - Random Topics
Most of the previous posts on this subject appear to be written by wheezy geezers stuck in the '60s and '70s. Folks, rock has not boned. Neither has metal. Both are constantly being re-energized by new ideas - progressive, glam, punk, post-punk, New Wave, thrash metal, death/doom metal, gothic, industrial, college rock, indie/alternative in its various forms, grunge, Britpop, dream pop/shoegazer, emo, nu metal, metalcore, rap rock, and on and on - and there is plenty of interesting new stuff being composed all the time, as anyone under the age of thirty would be happy to tell you. (For the record, I'm in my 50s but am not fixated on the music of my youth like the rest of my annoyingly sentimental generation, preferring instead to follow and appreciate the continuing evolution of the greatest music revolution since Bach first sat down at his harpsichord.) -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on April 25, 2011, 2:29 pm

Boston Red Sox - Random Topics
Like the old song goes, "Meet the new empire, same as the old empire...." The swiftness with which the Sox, and far too many of their fans, adopted the insufferable arrogance and entitlement mentality of their greatest rival was breathtaking to behold. One could almost wish for a new 86-year curse to descend on them..... -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on April 25, 2011, 1:48 pm

World Series of Poker, The - Random Topics
I like poker as much as the next person, and the concept of televised poker tournaments isn't intrinsically dumb. My complaint here is that all these shows - ALL of them, as far as I can tell - feature ONLY Texas Hold 'Em, as if that is the only style of poker in existence. Why don't they follow other poker variants? (I have the same complaint about televised pool competitions, which ALWAYS feature 9-ball and nothing else. I don't understand the mentality behind this; is it just a matter of dumbing things down for the audience?) -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on April 25, 2011, 1:39 pm
