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'll defend Elvis of Buddy Holly any day of the week over this brain-dead redneck idiot. He needs to go back to work at the filling station where he can make an honest contribution to society. Maybe his humor will be better appreciated whatever inbreds he sprung from. -- Submitted By: (lrbloom) on May 2, 2011, 2:08 am

John C. Reilly - Celebrities
This is an uninspired, straightforward, almost scene by scene spoof of Walk the Line. In addition to spoofing the Johnny Cash biopic, the film throws in some Bob Dylan, Beatles and Beach Boys (specifically Brian Wilson) references as well. This is a disappointing film. The Dewey Cox double entendre gets worked to death in the movie with numerous references to male genitalia, along with a few actual close ups of the swinging appendages. This film misfires most of the time. It is neither very funny nor touching. It lacks both brains and heart. It looks like a quickie exploitation film. -- Submitted By: (lrbloom) on May 2, 2011, 2:05 am

John C. Reilly - Celebrities
The problem is that there was nothing funny about these biopics in the first place. The biopics are ususally paying tribute to someone who deserved a better. All that Reilly did was to copy the format of what had already been done, call it "parody" or "spoof" and wait for morons to tell him how brilliant his "satire" is. He can't sing, write, isn't funny and can't equal anyone that he intends to parody which makes him no better than whatever it is he thinks he is making fun of. -- Submitted By: (lrbloom) on May 2, 2011, 1:57 am

Osama bin Laden - Celebrities
Never mind what I said in my last post on this subject. I wrote it in a particularly pessimistic mood. (By the way, the last part of that post's last sentence was cut off, for some reason. The sentence was supposed to have read "Sadly, history offers us too many examples of really bad people dying of old age in their beds.") I'm delighted that the bastard is about to be maggot food, though it would have been better if he'd been gut-shot so he could have suffered for awhile. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on May 2, 2011, 12:33 am

Well now! If that report is, in fact, true- then is sure DOES sound as if someone needs to "drag him aside and give him a little slap." But then again, just playing a little devils advocate- Is there actually audio of the incident? But if it is true, he'd better get his attitude in check before it REALLY backfires on him (and if it is happening, it's only a matter time before audio, or better yet, video of an incident surfaces- and that could ruin him). -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on May 1, 2011, 11:42 pm

Robert, some of the beaches in L.A. are beautiful and some are dirty and gross. Totally depends on which one you go to. Unfortunately, all of them are relatively overcrowded during the summertime and weekends, so good luck finding parking. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on May 1, 2011, 9:42 pm

Kingbk, you made the right choice, and confirmed what I'd figured all along about LA and California in general.

Superman - Random Topics
I just saw this the other day as well- another hijacking of a classic character being forced to do things outside the established norms of a character to support political agendas. The de-americanizing of Supes started when they didnt want to say Truth Justice and the American Way in the last movie. This goes along with Spiderman supporting Obama and GI JOE the movie from last year moving the characters away from being A REAL AMERICAN Hero. It's politcal correctness gone amok again.... http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2011/apr/29/take-your-global-citizenship-and-shove-it-superman/ -- Submitted By: (Chubby Rain) on May 1, 2011, 2:28 pm

John C. Reilly - Celebrities
Baloney. Walk Hard was funny as hell - a great sendup of the pompous celebrity biopic format - and Dewey Cox was based on lots of different people, not just on Johnny Cash. (Besides, I'd bet Cash wouldn't have found the movie offensive. What he WOULD have a problem with is the fawning hero worship that now surrounds him and angrily insists he is "above" being parodied.) Nor is Reilly the guy to blame for the movie anyway; he was neither the producer nor writer. You may as well insult supporting actors Tim Meadows and Harold Ramis and Jenna Fischer, and all the celebs with cameos, and all the real artists like the Temptations and Jackson Browne who appeared in the movie. Oh, and don't forget to defend the sacred honor of Elvis and Buddy Holly and Brian Wilson and Jim Morrison and the Beatles while you're at it. As for Reilly himself, he isn't close to boning. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on May 1, 2011, 1:38 pm

High School - Random Topics
I think we all have regrets from those years. Whether it be things we said/did that we wished we hadn't, things we didn't do/say that we wished we had or any number or other regrets. I think it's also important to remember that some of the mistakes we made back then helped us to learn lessons that allowed us to grow and (hopefully) mature into the people we are today. So, if you see a High School aged 'kid' acting in a way we disapprove of, remember that we were that young at one point in our lives as well. I'm not saying it excuses it, but that we have to remember that at that age, we're all still learning and growing and we should cut 'them' a little slack. Not let them get away with it, but be understanding. As for going to a high school reunion, I don't think mine even had one to be honest. I'm not sure if I would have gone even if it did. Never having been to one, I can't say how they go or if it's worth it. However, if you've moved on and want to keep that past in the past then maybe not going is the best thing to do. Then again, maybe seeing everyone else as they are now might help things if you discover they too have matured and changed. It might help to reinforce that those years and the issues are the past and that they've moved on as well. Who knows, maybe you'll make some new friends or re-discover some old ones. -- Submitted By: (ExplodingConsole) on May 1, 2011, 12:17 pm

DolFan, not going to lie, the beaches and weather were what made me move out here in the first place. I enjoyed living out here for a while, but after you realize all your paychecks go straight to rent, that living in a shoebox for $1500 a month is considered "cheap," that most the people out here are fake, flaky, and never will be true friends, that it takes 20 minutes or more to go even five miles somewhere, that you're working your ass off most of the time, so you don't even get to enjoy all the things there are to do, then you realize it's time to move. Four years was plenty, now my wife and I are ready to settle down somewhere for a long haul. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on May 1, 2011, 11:22 am

Facts of Life, The - TV Shows
DEFINITELY when Mrs. Garrett left. Her character (originally on Diff'rent Strokes) was the cornerstone on which TFOL was built. She was the unquestioned matriarch of the group as well as the glue that held them together as a tightly-knit "family". When her sister replaced her, things just went irreversibly downhill, including the combative Blair-Jo friendship, which was fun and touching in high school and college, but seemed to deteriorate as the series started winding down, as Blair got more insulting of Jo and Jo more apt to just sit and take it. DEFINITELY should've ended when Mrs. G departed, the show just fell apart the last two seasons without her. At least she came back for the reunion movie. -- Submitted By: (sportz75) on May 1, 2011, 4:58 am

The show itself never boned but should have let sleeping dogs lie and never came up with ABP, (Archie Bunker's Place). With that being said, in the episode of ABP when Edith dies and Archie finds her one slipper under her bed in the empty room and holds it to his face and starts crying has got to be one of the most gut-wrenching moments on TV ever. To this day if I watched it, all 6'4" and 240 lbs of me would cry like a little schoolgirl.

Saturday Night Live - TV Shows
SNL boned in the mid-199o's when it went from being a great comedy show to a political, mean-spirited attack forum for the left-wing hacks of Hollywood. It's one thing to make fun of Gerald Ford falling down the stairs of AF-1 like Chevy Chase used to do back in the day, but eventually they just got downright disrespectful and nasty.

I'm having a hard time making a decision on whether to go to my high school reunion or not. My 10 year reunion is in a few months and I no longer reside in the city my high school is in.

1980s - Random Topics
The 80s was a good year for cartoons. Despite cartoons which served no purpose other than being advertising vehicles (such as Care Bears, Popples, Strawberry Shortcake, etc.), you had Gummi Bears, Duck Tales, Chip and Dale Rescue Rangers, Transformers (OK, it advertised toys, but IIRC it had good storylines to back them up, unlike the others I mentioned), Voltron (ditto), Count Duckula, and more. There were a lot of bad 80s cartoons, too. I guess the quote that best describes the cartoons of the 80s: It was the best of times, it was the worst of times. The 90s also had good cartoons (especially most anything from WB). From 2000 on, quality started slipping when it came to cartoons. However, there were some good ones (like Samurai Jack and Invader Zim). Nowadays, many cartoons are cheaply done fillers with little to no effort put into them. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on April 30, 2011, 6:38 pm

I agree that Stallone was quite good in Cop Land, and I suspect that if he'd done more films of that nature, and fewer of the cartoonish movies he tends to end up in (or create for himself), he'd have earned a good deal of respect by now as a credible serious actor. (Interestingly, he has claimed that Cop Land hurt his career.) As for the question of boning, I'm not sure that the normal Bone Laws apply to a guy like Stallone. He is who he is, and as long as he makes movies that decent numbers of folks in his target consumer groups will pay to see, he's still some distance away from those fish.

Commercials - Random Topics
Commercials boned for good when Tivo was invented. From that point on, ad execs just assumed everyone had Tivo and would always just skip through the commercials so they literally stopped trying to make them even remotely watchable and started making them as dumb and obscene as possible because again, they just assume nobody notices. Which defeats the whole purpose of even having commercials, go figure. BTW Congress actually did something right for once and passed a law forcing ads to stop being so loud, but after a few weeks of conforming to the new law it seems they're right back to the loudness again. BTW it was based on being as loud as "the loudest point of a show" so if you're watching an action show with, say, one loud explosion or bang then somehow ad makers though it was okay for *all* commercials to be as loud as that. -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on April 29, 2011, 7:05 pm

Family Guy - TV Shows
Family Guy started out as an irreverent, but sweet, send up to television and pop culture as well as a half-way decent sitcom. Seth MacFarlane was taking the work he did with Cartoon Network and made it more adult oriented. Much to many people's dismay, it was canceled after three seasons. Then, Fox made the mistake of bring it back. After about two or three years, MacFarlane seemed to have lost his comedic sensibilities. Jokes ran on way too long and the show became too aware of itself. The characters have gone to their logical conclusions (Peter went from dim witted dad to full on retard, Meg went from generic teenager girl to whipping girl, etc.) and the writers have used the show to push their political agenda. The latter can be excused from time to time, but not when it becomes a weekly occurrence. Family Guy, to me, has been a big disappointment. It had a lot of potential, but it threw it away to pander to the lowest common denominator. I'm equally disappointed with Seth MacFarlane. I know he can do better than this. -- Submitted By: (dcvianc) on April 29, 2011, 6:47 pm

Kingbk, it's not just talk, it's reality. Everybody under age 30 takes their behavioral cues from American celebrities. You could even say that for everybody over 30 these days as well. Those two are masterful at putting on a public facade, I'll give them that. They may even be more mature than, say, Justin Bieber. But they're about as "regular" as any other celebs. Tell me, did 500 million people watch *your* wedding on TV? -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on April 29, 2011, 6:37 pm

Woodstock - Random Topics
Agree with Robert and Soggy both. Woodstock has gotten an overinflated reputation over the years from nostalgic older adults, many of whom never even attended the event. As I said in my entry about the 1960s, the 60s did bring us civil rights and the space age, both great developments for our country. At the same time, drug abuse, free love and other negative developments took place around this time as well. I look at Woodstock as the turning point of liberalism in America, not the liberalism of our fore fathers, the kind where you fight for radical change, but a liberalism of immoral behavior and laziness. I think the political climate at the time, with the Vietnam war, Martin Luther King Jr and JFK's murder, put together a perfect storm for extreme liberalism to start taking off and actually make inroads into the United States. The sickening thing is some of these people claimed their behavior in honor of JFK, but JFK was about working hard to make change in your country, not sitting on your butt, getting high, having sex with whoever and living off of a government system. This is when the Democratic party was hijacked, this was when political correctness started planting its roots, this was when the definitions of free will and the American Dream were rewritten. I hate both extreme lefties and extreme righties, but I point to Woodstock when extreme lefties finally made their mark in society, which we still see today. More and more I think 9/11 as the event for extreme righties, but being only 10 years, still not sure. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on April 29, 2011, 3:54 pm

Both seem like nice, mature, classy young adults. It's darn refreshing after all the talk from people about how young adults today are lazy, immature, etc. Sure, but there are also good people like these two that seem to do the right thing and try to live a good life. After all the Britney Spears, Lindsay Lohans and other crazy celebrities that are consistently in our face, it's good to see someone famous who seems to try to have a normal existence as much as possible. I wish him and Kate all the best. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on April 29, 2011, 3:09 pm

Will Smith - Celebrities
Yeah, why are he and his wife pushing their preteen daughter to be a ROCK STAR?! I could be wrong but somehow the rock industry seems to be an even more unsuitable place for a child than even her brother's 'career' of acting! And Mr. and Mrs. Smith hardly need the extra money. Why couldn't they let their kids be kids? -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on April 29, 2011, 1:15 pm

Prince William of Wales - Celebrities
Soggy, I think he and the new Duchess of Cambridge have had plenty of time to learn from the past generations' mistakes- and more importantly seem to have DONE so! It's also encouraging that he has insisted on independence with as much 'normalcy' as possible in the perpetual fishtank- and has appeared to have won the respect of his father and grandparents for that. They wouldn't have given their blessing for him to marry someone he'd openly lived had they not genuinely respected the two of them!It should be noted that any British royal who marries without the monarch's blessing essentially gets cut off from them. He owns his choices instead of trying to shift the blame when things blow up in his face- and has shown valor in his efforts to help others. Yeah, it's refreshing that he's not an awkward nerd and that she's not a naive waif but simply are two regular folks who are definitely going into this with both eyes wide open. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on April 29, 2011, 1:10 pm

Las Vegas - Random Topics
No matter what one thinks of its attractions[or lack thereof], one needs to carefully consider that this place gets 4 inches of rain a year [less than my city got this month] and is almost entirely dependent on the very tapped-out Colorado River for its water supply. Yes, the same Colorado River which was once powerful enough to carve out the Grand Canyon now barely makes it to the Gulf of California as a trickle of sludge thanks in no small part to Vegas! So, Soggy, you won't get soggy in Vegas anytime in the foreseeable future and I imagine that no camel would voluntarily move there if they knew the above info. I hope everyone already living there is getting ready to use bottled water for everything from drinking to bathing to washing dishes,etc. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on April 29, 2011, 12:53 pm

JB is certainly not my cup of tea where his music is concerned. My daughter is kooKoo for him right now. I've got nothing against this guy. He seems alright as a person but At the end of the day, he is the 'Flavor of the Month' and in a few years time his fans will mature out of him people will be saying 'Justin who?' All I can say for his sake is that I hope that he is surrounded by good people/family who will not get swept up in his fame and have his best interests at heart. And I hope he's making good solid investments with all that money he's raking in now. -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on April 29, 2011, 12:18 pm

Justin Bieber is pretty much a blank slate to me. I know little about him. I've only heard maybe one of his songs and that was in an Onion parody of him! I do however have a few questions. How is it that he "believes his own hype and believes he really is better than everyone else" ? And how do you know he's trying to be "famous just to be famous" and how is he "acting like a total jerkass" ? Like I said, he's more or less a blank slate to me. So, I'm unaware of a lot of his activities and attitudes. -- Submitted By: (ExplodingConsole) on April 29, 2011, 11:59 am

Dawn Lyn - Celebrities
Now that I've watched episodes of "My Three Sons" there is no possible way she wore a diaper. A diaper would be way too bulky under those short little dresses. It just looks like frilly white underwear. It was also corrected that that story of her pooping on someone was based on some other kid who was a guest star on a show in 1974 long after "My Three Sons" was cancelled. It just goes to show you that you can't believe everything you read.I think someone was just trying to be funny.

Starbucks Coffee - Random Topics
As with so many other companies, you're buying a label more than you are a product. Or, to put a finer point on it, the label IS the product. I used to know plenty of folks in Seattle who frequented Starbucks on a daily basis despite bitching nonstop about how inferior it was to SBC or Tully's or JavaWorks or whomever. Granted, they may have actually liked the burned coffee and indifferent pastries and simply felt it was their duty as trendy hipsters to rag on the place. I suspect, though, that it was largely a matter of wanting to tote the little mermaid label around so they'd be accepted by all the other mermaid-label-toting lemmings in that town. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on April 29, 2011, 7:49 am

Thanksgiving - Random Topics
Dol, I'm sorry to hear your family is so messed up. Mine, however, is not, and I'd imagine there are as many well-adjusted families like mine in this country - families that are capable of getting together for Thanksgiving or Christmas or Easter without fights breaking out - as there are basket-case families. (And I'm sure you'd agree that many dysfunctional families are the way they are for reasons of their own making.) I also suspect you are exaggerating - for the usual predictable purposes of political advocacy - the degree to which the American family has sunk. (Whether you truly believe what you described in your last post, or whether you have maybe been influenced by too many of those cliched combative-family-get-together scenes in Hollywood movies, I can't say.) -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on April 29, 2011, 2:55 am

Judge Judy - TV Shows
I'd pay serious bucks to see that confrontation too. My own thoughts about this disgusting hag were just posted on the "Reality TV" page. Frankly, though, I feel no particular sympathy for the dolts who are so eager to appear on her show; they are there, rather than in a real courtroom, solely because they are attention whores like she is, and in that sense they deserve a certain measure of the verbal abuse they receive from her. But much of that abuse really is needless, except perhaps as a means of drawing viewers. Bottom line: Wouldn't it be wonderful to see Sheindlin on the receiving end of the sort of venom she's so happy to spit at others? -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on April 29, 2011, 2:01 am

Reality Television - Random Topics
My least favorite programs of this sort are the "judge" shows. Granted, our legal system is already a joke, but reducing a courtroom case - well, okay, a courtroom arbitration procedure - to a half hour of ha-ha entertainment strikes me as grossly exploitative. No one involved in these shows seems to care much about justice: The plaintiff and defendant - which I'm sure most of you have noted are often the product of Trailer Park America - are there primarily because they want to be on TV; the audience - and heaven knows what sorts of dingdongs are in those audiences - is there to see fireworks; and the judge - who damn well ought to know better - is there to mug and preen and crack jokes. And yes, the Big Kahuna of the genre, "Judge Judy", is the worst offender. Never mind that she is needlessly rude and abrasive; there are plenty of judges NOT on TV who employ that shtick, mostly for reasons having to do with ego gratification. What bothers me most about Judith Sheindlin is that she presents her show as a sort of public service, to educate us about matters of civil law, when in fact all she is doing is exploiting unhappy people in order to get a huge paycheck and all the perks that come with celebrity status. I'd love to see her be coaxed onto a live broadcast, where an articulate critic would (figuratively) jump out of the bushes, ala Stone Phillips, and give her a sound belittling in front of the entire country. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on April 29, 2011, 1:44 am

Liberalism - Random Topics
I can't speak to Googalslosh's political status, which I don't know, but I can say I agree with his/her comment. (Well, not the "idiot" part.) It IS true that neither conservatism nor liberalism (as we define them today) has all the answers, or is consistently correct (or consistently logical), or has a monopoly on moral probity. Nor is namecalling, or character assassination, a tactic employed by one side only (as WE ALL know). All too many of the criticisms aimed at one ideology can as easily be applied to the other. That's why those of us who are in the center tend to accept the most sensible parts of both ideologies (and of libertarianism too) and discard the rest. Across-the-board liberalism and across-the-board conservatism are both exercises in cluelessness, and an America completely dominated by either one of them would be a nightmarish place. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on April 29, 2011, 12:55 am
