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.

Max Headroom - TV Shows
Max Headroom was surprising in its depiction of the future of television. It didn't get everything right (people now get more info from their personal computers than they do from any broadcast network) but they did foresee the advent of artificial intelligence and the importance of computer generated personalities decades before they were common. Also, they somehow knew that newscasters would still be lugging around those clunky betacam style cameras to do their broadcasts, and didn't miniaturize those as some might have expected. Matt Frewer, Amanda Pays and Jeffrey Tambor made a fantastic team, and of course the titular talking head Frewer embodied became an icon of the 1980s. -- Submitted By: (TheDeanofNYC) on August 25, 2010, 10:16 pm

When the group was heel, they were good, but when they were a face group, some of the stuff they did was EPIC (Impersonating The Nation of Domination, Vince McMahon, going to a WCW event to raise hell with the fans). By 2009, when they reformed DX one last time, it was pretty obvious that they were reformed just to sell stuff. Sure, Shawn Michaels and Triple H are great entertainers, and they still did some funny stuff, but with a PG WWE, there was not a lot they could do. -- Submitted By: (PYLrulz) on August 25, 2010, 3:00 pm

WKRP in Cincinnati - TV Shows
WKRP in Cincinnati was a brilliant show, populated with some of the most hilarious characters in Television History! You had the Femme Fatale v. The Ingenue (Loni Anderson's Jennifer Marlowe v. Jan Smithers' Bailey Quarters), you had the wacky morning DJ (Howard Hesseman's Dr. Johnny Fever) There was the ridiculous skirt chasing sales guy and the seemingly virginal news guy (Frank Bonner's Herb Tarlek and Richard Saunders' Les Nessman) The cool and smooth (sometimes) late night jock (Tim Reid's Venus Flytrap) the totally out of touch station owner (Gordon Jump's Arthur Carlson) and the guy trying to make the whole thing work (Gary Sandy's Andy Travis). Yes, The Who concert ep was out of character for this show, but how could they not do something about it? The Who fit the station's format and the event occurred in Cincinnati. I'm sorry, but under those circumstances, they deserve praise for dedicating an episode to that tragic concert. Meanwhile, I wish we could have had DVDs of the original episodes as broadcast on CBS, with all of the music intact. The show isn't WKRP without the music! -- Submitted By: (TheDeanofNYC) on August 22, 2010, 10:26 am

Daria - TV Shows
Daria was absolutely the most brilliant program ever aired by MTV, and it was spun off of the dumbest. Yes, Beavis & Butthead was where Ms. Morgendorffer got her humble beginnings, as the super smart foil for those two doofus characters, but the show that emerged truly made a lot of great statements about High School life, family life and our American values generally. This show was and still is brilliant, though questionable areas occurred when they did an episode with people playing holidays (Guy Fawkes Night helped make it a little less ridiculous), and of course "The Musical" episode, but I forgive those. I'd love to see Daria return with new age appropriate adventures. What would she make of Lawndale, today? -- Submitted By: (TheDeanofNYC) on August 22, 2010, 10:09 am

BoneTheFish.com - Websites
To note- in particular we had one user that once taken off the site, all of the uber political topics and liberal ballot stuffing disappeared. Also the user I'm refering to-(YuanMoons- an angry if not stupid poster) had nothing to say but angry liberal comments and was trying (unsuccessfully) to hijack the site. The site was changed so you had to register to vote, so we knew who voted how many times- thus we can know if something odd is happening, or if bots are involved (which hasn't since it was changed) We think that YuanMoons was using bots to jack up random topics like Laura Bush getting 1000 votes for killing someone in a car accident, and the ACLU getting 2000 votes for never boned... all in less than 24 hours- The statistics on the site's traffic showed us this was fraudulant along with dozens of other obscure political topics getting swamped with 100's and 1000's of votes over night in some cases- now the site is mostly entertainment with a dash of political criticisms- mostly on the shows that have gone sideways politically to drive us (the viewers) away. On that note- at the time we removed YuanMoon from the site, he was busy writing crazed emails into the site demanding changes and alterations to the site taht he wanted made and YuanMoon was also making conspiratorial claims his posts were being changed by other users since he "had been monitoring the site every hour and taking web snapshots of all of his posts" to prove his claims... probably the delusions of someone that doesn't get outside very much and may need mental help. The truth of it was this was someone that had nothing to contribute except some off the wall liberal agenda; and was paranoid about how bad they looked on the site he/she was trying to manipulate- sad. So not only was this our vote stacker and manipulator, it was our first stalker- the second one being the faux lesbian blogger "Red Head Metal Head". Yuan and Redhead should make their own site, they can hijack it together- hope that helps! -- Submitted By: (Chubby Rain) on August 22, 2010, 7:27 am

Addams Family, The - TV Shows
People constantly compare this program to "The Munsters," and on the surface it's easy to see why: both series debuted in the same television season and both were about families that were peculiar in a horror B movie sort of way. HOWEVER, the difference was that "The Munsters" were all slapstick nonsense, while "The Addams Family" were full of passion! That was the secret ingredient that lifted The Addamses and their motley brood far above their Mockingbird Heights counterparts! The love story of Gomez and Morticia is the true centerpiece of this show, and that's what makes it so much superior to Herman and Lily. And really the passion plays out in everything, in their hobbies, in their caring for the people around them. Despite being creepy, kooky, mysterious, spooky and yes, altogether ooky, The Addams Family is genius. Big props to John Astin and Carolyn Jones who are still the hottest television couple in history, and to Ted Cassidy who was genius as Lurch, plus Jackie Coogan as Fester! And of course Vic Mizzy who gave us the great incidental music that scored the episodes and that memorable theme, still heard in ballparks all over the USA! Two snaps up. -- Submitted By: (TheDeanofNYC) on August 21, 2010, 10:02 am

Bewitched - TV Shows
I'm sure someone will correct me if this is wrong, but I had heard a story that Dick Sargent, who was the infamous "Second Darrin" was, in fact, the actor the production wanted originally to play the part. However, he wasn't available as they started shooting so they got Dick York instead! I think York was just a better comedy reactor, much like Larry Hagman in I Dream of Jeannie. He had the eyes and the expressions, he had the face for it and you need that to make a magical show like this work. Sargent was never capable of those sorts of reactions, just not a lot of range there. So, yes to the 2nd Darrin being "THE" moment, but I wonder if Sargent were the Darrin all along, how this show would have fared... -- Submitted By: (TheDeanofNYC) on August 21, 2010, 9:42 am

I Dream of Jeannie - TV Shows
I think if there are legitimate reasons why something does or doesn't happen, we can overlook them. In the case of I Dream of Jeannie, we have an astronaut who is committed to helping the United States in its space quest. And, as we all know, astronauts had a very strict, squeaky clean image. In fact, most of them were family men, with wives, kids and houses. So, Captain Nelson, eventually Major Nelson was cut from that cloth. This is a viable reason for his not wanting Jeannie around in his life! Of course, eventually he came to understand that having her in his life made things a lot more interesting! Great credit to Larry Hagman who was brilliant at the reactions to everything, Barbara Eden who was like a two year old: all giggles and temper tantrums, Bill Daily who was the perfect foil for them both and let's not forget Hayden Roarke as Dr. Bellows, the psychiatrist that knew something was odd around Cocoa Beach, but could never quite prove it to anybody. His slow burns after he got shown up at the end of yet another episode really went a long way towards making this show a hit! -- Submitted By: (TheDeanofNYC) on August 21, 2010, 9:31 am

Adventures of Superman, The - TV Shows
"Faster than a speeding bullet! More powerful than a locomotive! Able to leap tall buildings in a single bound!" "Look! Up in the sky!" "It's a bird!" "It's a plane!" "It's Superman!" And certainly for its day, Superman was a fantastic series, with a remarkable cast of actors. Did you know that both Phyllis Coates and Noel Neill, who each played Lois Lane during the series are still around? Perhaps the only mistake was selecting such a recognizable building to represent "The Daily Planet" facade: Los Angeles City Hall! And budgetary restrictions meant that the only people inside that massive building were Clark Kent, Jimmy Olsen, Lois and Perry White. But if you can overlook those elements, you'll see some great work from George Reeves, a very likable Man of Steel as well as his ne'er do well cub photographer Jack Larson as Jimmy (and of course he's also still around)! Plus some really good stories, ideal for both kids and their parents to enjoy. -- Submitted By: (TheDeanofNYC) on August 21, 2010, 9:16 am

Just as a celebrity can bone if they get too liberal, a celebrity can bone if they get too conservative, too. For example, some people feel South Park boned when it became too political (many argue it became too conservative). Nobody likes a uber-political crusader, whether they're left or right. If you think Dawn Lyn is an annoying reason, you should have seen how many Dawn Lyn votes other shows got during the raid of the ballot stuffers over half a year ago. Other topics were affected, too. Most of the Never Boned votes went to liberal topics such as the ACLU (and were also the top reasons), while most of the Conservative topics had Day one as the top reason they boned. In fact, Jimmy Carter had over 200 votes for never boned just because he was a democrat! Some Conservative topics managed to get Never Boned as their top reason, though. It got so political that the Best of the Best page was littered with Liberal=Never Boned, Conservative=Day One as the highest votes (and of course, Dawn Lyn votes). The BTF staff had to delete reasons with suspected ballot stuffing until normal topics were once again in the Best of the Best page. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on August 20, 2010, 9:16 pm

Chicago - Music Groups
No, you've got it wrong-it was when Peter Cetera _took over_ the band, essentially, that it got Boned (partially but not wholly due to Kath's death, so that's what I voted). This was c. 10-15 years before he left. Before they became "adult contemporary" fodder, this was a thriving ensemble band-sure, they were recording lightweight fluff from the first album onwards, but there was enough rock and jazz and fusion here and there to maintain a certain level of gravitas. But then they decided to just focus on "soft rock" (oxymoron warning) with Cetera singing lead on just about every track, and their creativity & eclecticism simply died. -- Submitted By: (JohnDiFool) on August 20, 2010, 9:08 pm

Socialism - Random Topics
Yeah, Nazi was short for "National Socialists" but that doesn't mean they brought socialism to Germany or that was their main platform point(there are obvious others). Germany has traditionally been socialist regardless of where their political pendulum swings. Anyhow, I'm not a socialist but like it as a balance for capitalism. Pure capitalism may be more interesting but unbridled capitalism allows those who cheat or exploit the system get away with it. With capitalism there are winners and losers. The problem is what to do with the losers. Pure capitalists will say that the winners will hire the losers to work for them especially if they get lower tax rates. Ok, those workers will be hired but paid as low as possible no matter the tax rate is and if another nation can provide cheaper labor they will go there no matter how low the tax rate is. Capitalism has sense of patriotism just make money as efficiently as possible. So the question is what to do with the losers if they can't afford basic living needs? If those winners are not hiring them or paying them a decent wage, then the govt has to tax the winners to give the losers money to afford what they need. Either that or give them credit cards and put them in eternal debt. It is more complex than this but this why socialism exists. So the wealthy will still have to pay for the poorer in society whether they pay them for work or through the govt. Again, I might be oversimplifying this but this is just what I see. I'm not trying to be anti-capitalist or pro-socialist if that's how I come across but this is just the way I see things. -- Submitted By: (JamesO) on August 19, 2010, 11:11 pm

Star Trek: Enterprise - TV Shows
I posted on JTS for this show the day before it went kaput. I can't even remember what I said though. Anyhow, this show really wasn't what I was expecting. It would have been better if they dealt with aliens that were talked about but never shown who were future UFP members and how humans encountered them(You should figure most of the first aliens encountered would become fed members). Instead they bring in TNG aliens(ie Ferengi, Borg) who really shouldn't have been heard of at this time or introduce new ones(which is fine in some cases). It was ok with the Andorians and the Klingons but there should have been something on how the Federation came in conflict with the Romulans(I didn't see every episode so correct me if I'm wrong). Anyway, the show was ok but not up to previous standards. I know some blame the "killer B's" Brandon Bragga and Rick Berman for the decline of the Star Trek franchise. I guess that could have been the problem too. Someone who's a bigger ST fan could elaborate possibly. -- Submitted By: (JamesO) on August 19, 2010, 9:39 pm

Independence Day (USA) - Random Topics
The Second Day of July 1776, will be the most memorable Epocha, in the History of America. I am apt to believe that it will be celebrated, by succeeding Generations, as the great anniversary Festival.

It ought to be solemnized with Pomp and Parade, with Shews, Games, Sports, Guns, Bells, Bonfires and Illuminations from one End of this Continent to the other from this Time forward forever more. You will think me transported with Enthusiasm but I am not. I am well aware of the Toil and Blood and Treasure, that it will cost Us to maintain this Declaration, and support and defend these States. Yet through all the Gloom I can see the Rays of ravishing Light and Glory. I can see that the End is more than worth all the Means.

Wheel of Fortune - TV Shows
It kind of annoys me that this show isn't even vaguely about skilled play anymore. My family and I rarely fail to get the right answer 3 spins/vowel buys before any contestant, and we're hardly geniuses. Every other night a contestant will guess a letter that's already been guessed. They also show the contestants/hosts forever and give a shot of the actual puzzle for just a few seconds at a time, making it frustrating to play from home. Also the show has so much advertisement and other filler. We Tivo it and sit down 15 minutes in and we're caught up by Jeopardy. Without Tivo to cut the crap out I don't think we'd have the patience for Wheel anymore. -- Submitted By: (doctor_awesome) on August 18, 2010, 7:23 pm

Star Trek TNG - TV Shows
There were a LOT of TNG episodes that were bad. The average episode was actually not that good, especially the ones devoted to the lamer characters. Then a lot of episodes weren't exactly duds but they were gimmicks that introduced something dramatic then it was all resolved by the end of the hour, never to be spoken of again. Jordy gets tortured and programmed into being an assassin, Riker discovers he has a clone, Picard discovers he has a son... they're all their generic selves a week later. The series was redeemed by the 2-part episodes, which other than the series premiere ranged from good to great. Also saving the series were a handful of excellent standalone episodes. But in between was a LOT of filler. -- Submitted By: (doctor_awesome) on August 18, 2010, 6:54 pm

Sex Pistols - Music Groups
Their "last" show was perfect. Pissing the audience out of a real concert that they paid for. Doing a crappy version of "no fun" with John Rotten announcing, "you'll get one number and one number only." Followed by, "you ever get the feeling you've been cheated?" That's pure Sex Pistols attitude, they should have never reunited after that "last" concert... especially as old, fat men. Even though I feel Sid sucked and was no more than a bass stand, when he died, they should have never pulled Glen back in the fold and continued on at a later date. The post-pistols bands were great: PiL, The Professionals, and The Rich Kids. -- Submitted By: (bandeapart) on August 18, 2010, 3:45 pm

Veganism - Random Topics
I'm vegan, it's a personal choice. I don't feel comfortable being responsible for doling out that kind of suffering and pain on any living being. It's easy to close yourself off from what actually happens in factory farms because you never have to deal with it, but I choose to acknowledge those facts and not contribute to them. I also don't pull the "guilt-the-carnivores" stance either. People are so offended by people like me making a personal choice and I don't get why. It's the way I choose to live my life, that is all. I don't live this lifestyle to be "holier-than-thou." -- Submitted By: (bandeapart) on August 18, 2010, 3:36 pm

Modern Family - TV Shows
Great show. Characters that act human and genuine with lots of great humor, but nice messages as well. I like it because for the most part the family can watch this together and everyone enjoys it. The humor has a lot of adult references, but not overly abundant or crude, but it's not saccharine sweet or cheesy like Full House, Family Ties or the family sitcoms of old in the messages it has. Good balance and proof that the family sitcom can evolve and survive in the present age. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on August 17, 2010, 2:22 pm

ESPN - Random Topics
You know, I think ESPN has always been for the casual fan. At one point it was entertaining enough to appeal to everyone when Sportscenter was in its golden years, but really they've always been about watered down coverage for casual fans. A serious sports fan wants to see all or most of their team games, hear quality coverage and analysis from a full-time reporter... a serious fan is never going to be satisfied with Joe Morgan reading the notes someone else prepared for him and Chris Berman screaming cliches in lieu of providing any kind of meaningful analysis. But hey if you just want a bit of entertainment with sports in it, ESPN is there for you. That's their game plan. They have been doing this for decades. -- Submitted By: (doctor_awesome) on August 17, 2010, 9:41 am

Shazam! - TV Shows
There's really a whole lot of material to discuss with this show: the fact that Mentor and Billy were cruising around the Southwestern US in an RV together with the Captain Marvel lightning bolt on it in full view of anyone who wanted to look was part of it (and well, that relationship had more than a hint of Dr. Smith and Will Robinson to it). But clearly, when Jackson Bostwick, who WAS Captain Marvel I guess asked for too much money from the producers, they replaced him with a couch potato and totally out of shape Captain Marvel for spite! Talk about your superhero parodies! Even Jack Black as Nacho Libre was more credible than that second guy! -- Submitted By: (TheDeanofNYC) on August 17, 2010, 12:05 am

Kim Possible - TV Shows
The reason why Kim Possible worked so well, was the conceit that she was the perfect teen girl high school cheerleader, who just happened to be the daughter of a rocket scientist father and a brain surgeon mother, and of course, was saving the world when she wasn't finishing her homework! The episode plots recalled the camp and villainy of the TV version of Batman, and actually had almost as many worthwhile statements to say about high school life as MTV's "Daria!" Stuff about siblings, friends turning into lovers, the dreaded drivers' ed course and the always in use kim-unicator. I would argue that this was, and still is, the best Disney cartoon series, ever. -- Submitted By: (TheDeanofNYC) on August 16, 2010, 11:28 pm

Batman (1966) - TV Shows
Batman is remarkable proof that geeky and square can stand the test of time! Blame Producer William Dozier for insisting on the camp qualities of the Caped Crusaders. Blame the production team for getting unlikely special guest villains like Art Carney, Liberace and Zsa Zsa Gabor. Blame America for abandoning the program just as Yvonne Craig's Batgirl arrived. But you can't blame Adam West, the real, true Batman! His dual role as the impossibly straight Bruce Wayne, a millionaire playboy that didn't smoke or drink and Burt Ward, as his youthful ward, Dick Grayson were the backbone of the series, as well as the wonderful Alan Napier as the all-knowing Alfred. And of course Caesar Romero's Joker, Burgess Meredith's Penguin, Julie Newmar's Catwoman (with a nod to Eartha Kitt for being the most cat-like) and Frank Gorshin's Riddler (never John Astin's!) Please, get this out on DVD! -- Submitted By: (TheDeanofNYC) on August 16, 2010, 11:17 pm

Pee-Wee's Playhouse - TV Shows
Pee-Wee's Playhouse was bizarre for one simple reason: it began as an adult parody of a kids' tv show from LA's famed The Groundlings troupe, where Paul Reubens came up with all of the twisted, bizarre and winking double entendre references for his "The Pee-Wee Herman Show" (available on DVD and very much worth watching). The reason CBS likely allowed Reubens to bring the bulk of that staged performance to the kids of the 1980s was that even though it was clearly a sendup of those types of programs, all of the stuff that a kids' show was about was in place! It just needed to be cleaned up, and it mostly was. Whatever Paul Reubens did in his personal life has no bearing on this series, which was and is still great! -- Submitted By: (TheDeanofNYC) on August 16, 2010, 10:46 pm

Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip - TV Shows
The trouble this show had was trying to dramatize life behind the scenes of a comedy series. Keep in mind, this was on the same network as "Saturday Night Live," a show that is actually funny maybe a handful of times a SEASON. So, to show moments from a similar series as part of this program was a major detriment to the work. It's a lot easier to write to the drama than to the comedy, and I think we all discovered that with this series. That being said, the concept was an interesting one, with a really great cast and Aaron Sorkin overseeing it all. But really, the focus should have been on Amanda Peet's character, who I saw as what could have been the evolution of Mary Richards. The problem was why would she be so wrapped up in the doings on that late night show? We should have been following her character throughout, and occasionally looked in on the comedy show. That would have been a winner! -- Submitted By: (TheDeanofNYC) on August 16, 2010, 1:44 am

Malcolm in the Middle - TV Shows
I have just finished watching the entire series and I got to say, overall good to the end. Malcolm did become a bit antagonistic, however he was a teenager and that was a realistic character change which helped in some ways to the show. The baby did not ruin the show as much as it could have considering. They decided to leave it at a good point, a landmark in the main character's life which was done with and not arbitrarily in the middle of something else. Also, I have to the say show was far ahead of its time in many ways; a sitcom with no laugh-track, higher prominence in single camera, characters are less one-note, more down-beat in many ways as well as more over-the-top etc, there are many more examples. Long story short = good show. -- Submitted By: (johnnydough) on August 14, 2010, 4:55 pm

Spin City - TV Shows
I watched this show sporadically when I was younger. It was pretty funny for the most part and good entertainment. Definitely the boning moment was when Michael J. Fox left the show. He was the show and it wasn't nearly as enjoyable when he was gone. Charlie Sheen was not nearly as charming or fun to watch. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on August 14, 2010, 9:36 am

Lost in Space - TV Shows
To Dean: I think the "Simpsons" writers came to the same sort of conclusion about Dr. Smith as you did.

But it does explain a few things. -- Submitted By: (Mythigator) on August 14, 2010, 7:44 am

Lost in Space - TV Shows
This series may have undergone the most profound changes of any single television show. First, it was originally shot in black and white, where the storylines ran to the serious issues of a little American family in the vastness of the universe and the problems of dealing with the creatures they encountered and trying to find their way either back home or to their destination of Alpha Centauri. That first season featured some very dramatic and rather powerful stuff! But then, it went to a full color format and, thanks primarily to the success of the television version of "Batman," the producers chose to start doing camp style storylines, turning the sinister saboteur Dr. Zachary Smith into the pedantic comedic star, with the Robot and Will Robinson always at hand as his foils. I never understood why Dr. Smith was so thrilled with the concept of returning to Earth. He would have just been arrested for his acts and thrown in ja... oh, on second thought, I get it now. -- Submitted By: (TheDeanofNYC) on August 13, 2010, 1:39 pm

Let's Make a Deal - TV Shows
Let's Make a Deal is a game that was truly made by the host. Monty Hall had the fast patter and oiliness of a used car salesman in his role as emcee, and he was the ultimate! Watching him whip through the contestants and bamboozling them with the various offers of boxes, curtains and doors was sheer genius. Without him, the show really never worked, and even in the current version, with Wayne Brady doing the hosting, is just a placeholder for Hall's fiendish ability to confuse and confound! It wasn't about the game at all, it was Monty's ability to put those costumed characters through their paces! If there is a hell, the devil would dream of being Monty Hall! -- Submitted By: (TheDeanofNYC) on August 13, 2010, 1:26 pm

Love, American Style - TV Shows
In theory, "Love, American Style" was a good idea. Start with a universal theme and have different takes on it, featuring a mix of up and coming stars and veteran actors. Two problems: 1. No standards. The writing for this show was all over the map, and mostly bad, or at least forgettable! 2. No stability. Even the classic anthology series "The Twilight Zone" had Rod Serling week after week to help lend some regularity to the proceedings. This is why "The Love Boat" succeeded where this show failed: they a regular cast of characters interacting with the guests. If "Love, American Style" had better, more consistent writing, focused their storylines to be a bit more cohesive and able to make some actual statements about what love means and how it might relate to the audience, and maybe had at least some regular host or characters that were constant, it would have done a lot better. -- Submitted By: (TheDeanofNYC) on August 13, 2010, 1:17 pm

Video Games - Random Topics
I was a huge gamer back in the day, but not to the point kids are today. When I played games, it was a diversion with friends for an hour, maybe 2, to kill some time during summer vacation or Christmas break. Now, kids play games ALL DAY LONG and never go outside, exercise, or have real life friends besides those they meet through playing their games. I feel it's definitely one of the major causes of the rising rate of obesity, yet it doesn't seem to get the same flack that candy, soda and fast food companies do. Sure, video games get flack, but more for the violence factor, not the obesity one. Then again, the gaming culture was a lot different in the 80s and 90s. Arcades were still popular and it was cool to go to an arcade, challenge people, drink some big gulps and eat some pizza, and maybe make a few new friends or having your friends over and playing 2 player games on the Genesis or SNES. Now it's more an activity done alone in your own home with "cyber" friends. Games back in the day had more variety. Now it's just WoW type games or first-person shooters. And like previous posters, 3-D games make me sick... So yes, I think video games have boned, probably around the time the WII and XBox 360 came out, so early to mid 2000s. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on August 12, 2010, 2:57 pm
