Patrick Stewart - Celebrities
Some people are simply incapable of boning, and Sir Patrick Stewart (remember, he was knighted last year) is one of them. He could read the words on a can of Spam and make it sound absolutely riveting. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on April 21, 2011, 3:09 am

iPod - Random Topics
With all due respect to my friend DolFan, I think "all but dead" is something of an exaggeration. There are tons of very good music out there - music by and for grownups. Granted, it doesn't get as much mainstream exposure as the bubble-gum stuff and mass-market pablum, but it's still there (and easily available on iTunes, certain uncooperative bands like Tool notwithstanding). My personal taste runs to fairly sophisticated alternative/progressive/post-punk/metal/jazz, and I'm always encountering good new stuff (or discovering music from the '90s that flew under my radar when it was new). Sometimes I have to wander off the beaten path to find it, but that's part of the fun. My only complaint is that digital recordings are still generally inferior, soundwise, to analog recordings. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on April 21, 2011, 2:32 am

All in the Family - TV Shows
The show never really boned; some of the most impressive episodes (and acting) took place during the last couple of years it was on the air (1978-79). In fact, three of Carroll O'Connor's four Emmys were awarded for the show's last three seasons. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on April 21, 2011, 1:50 am

John Wayne - Celebrities
Avoided military service during WW2 because it would have interfered with his movie career, then spent the rest of his life trying to atone for his selfishness by becoming a hyper-patriot. Should have gotten an Oscar for The Searchers. Voted for few of the same folks I voted for, but he was a damn good guy nonetheless. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on April 20, 2011, 8:17 pm

Green Day - Music Groups
Green Day is punk like Budweiser is beer. (Which is to say, there's a superficial resemblance to the real thing, but the product is kind of thin and flavorless.) -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on April 20, 2011, 8:01 pm

New Jersey - Random Topics
New Jersey boned the fish - and yes, it was a toxic fish that washed up on one of the state's grossly overrated beaches - when it started to become a magnet for the NYC region's trailer trash. Let's say 1972. (On an unrelated note, I'm fairly sure Shanequia, whose musings never fail to brighten my day, is actually a very witty middle-aged white dude who is well aware of the UK's Channel Islands. But of course I can't prove it....) -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on April 20, 2011, 1:06 pm

Pornography - Random Topics
Darn! I was sort of hoping this subject was The Cure's classic album of the same name; I was prepared to defend that album to my dying breath. But I see it's only the literal, boring subject of pornography, and I can only reply with a ho-hum. (Well, okay; I suppose I can add that pornography became passe when the ladies started shaving their private parts, and the dudes with the cameras started using really bright lights to illuminate said parts.) -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on April 20, 2011, 12:55 pm

9/11 Truth Movement - Random Topics
Truthers and birthers: two sides of the same retarded coin. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on April 20, 2011, 12:45 pm

Michael Franks - Music Groups
Franks has held up pretty well, and his last couple of albums aren't bad at all. As "smooth" goes, I prefer the likes of Bryan Ferry, but Franks has cut some tasty tracks over the years. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on April 20, 2011, 12:42 pm

Nadya "Octomom" Suleman - Celebrities
Today there are thousands - perhaps hundreds of thousands - of Americans doing all manner of things in the desperate hope of becoming celebrities. It's just bloody crazy, and I'm not convinced that a contestant on even a "respectable" reality show like American Idol is that far removed from a woman who wants to set a world record for popping out kids. While we are singling out this pathetic person for scorn, we might want to consider sending a little of that scorn in the direction of the sick culture that compelled her to seek America's attention in the first place. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on April 20, 2011, 12:35 pm

Arlen Specter - Celebrities
There's nothing wrong with a Republican who bucks his party once in awhile. ("RINO" is a stupid term; it suggests that every party member has to follow exactly the same rigid philosophy all the time, which as far as I know only the emptiest of heads can do with a clear conscience.) But Specter's behavior, pretty much for the entirety of his Senate career, has been less that of a maverick than of a sneaky opportunist (of the throw-his-grandmother-under-a-bus-to-get-votes variety). It's that reason, and not his lack of ideological purity, that ought to earn him the enmity of the party faithful. (P.S.: Excessive loyalty to a political party is a form of retardation. You're welcome.) -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on April 20, 2011, 12:23 pm

Beastie Boys, The - Music Groups
Pelirojo's retraction shows he has alot of heart, and I salute him for that. Now to the subject at hand: To as great a degree as I am able, I ignore the political bleatings of musicians and actors when evaluating their art. (One must do this for the sake of one's blood pressure if for no other reason.) People are free to believe the dumbest things they can find to stuff into their heads; as long as they entertain me, I couldn't care less if they believe in the Tooth Fairy. And the Beastie Boys HAVE been entertaining me with considerable skill for a quarter century. Nor do they show any serious signs of boning. (But their next album is due out in a couple of weeks, so I may have to revise this post after I hear it.) -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on April 20, 2011, 12:10 pm

Star Trek: Enterprise - TV Shows
A ship whose design - and innards - are clearly much more advanced than the namesake ship of a century later can't help but bone from the start. And the characters were just colorless (not to mention cliched). -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on April 20, 2011, 4:04 am

Land of the Giants - TV Shows
It always struck me as improbable that the evil giants would capture the female "little people" and not undress them for kicks. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on April 20, 2011, 3:53 am

Sean Hannity - Celebrities
Sean Hannity boned when he chose ideological loyalty over intellectual honesty. A case in point: Several years ago the appropriately named Michael Crook, the head of that ugly organization called "Forsake the Troops", was on Hannity & Colmes. Sean did everything he could think of to link Crook's odious group, and the sick mentality behind it, with the Democratic Party. It took Alan Colmes's passionate (and clearly sincere) denunciation of Crook's group for Sean to finally throw in the towel and admit that this group was indeed not representative of the Democratic Party - a fact he knew all along but hoped his fans wouldn't notice. When the need to score a cheap political point is so strong that you resort to straw-man arguments that you know are bogus, you have chosen to place your ideology's fortunes above your honor and integrity, and that is a truly pathetic tradeoff. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on April 20, 2011, 3:44 am

TAXI - TV Shows
A little Latka went a loooong way. And Carol Kane as his wife was living hell on my ears. Jeff Conaway I didn't care for, but the rest of the cast was great. (Marilu Henner rocked my world bigtime.) -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on April 18, 2011, 11:41 pm

Tales from the Darkside - TV Shows
A nicely unsettling opening title sequence, with the reverse lighting and ominous voiceover. Many of the episodes were quite good, though I didn't care so much for the comedy episodes they'd occasionally present. I'm kind of surprised nobody has commented on this series yet. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on April 18, 2011, 11:35 pm

Kolchak: The Night Stalker - TV Shows
The two-hour pilot was creepy as hell, and it still holds up well. Same for the series in general. Good theme music, great use of lighting, very atmospheric. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on April 18, 2011, 11:20 pm

Dr Pepper - Random Topics
Anything that mixes well with gin is by definition unboneable. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on April 18, 2011, 11:13 pm

Bonanza - TV Shows
When it became The Michael Landon Show (c.1971). The guy was writing and directing episodes right and left, and of course they were all episodes that portrayed Joe in as heroic a light as possible. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on April 18, 2011, 11:10 pm
