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 remember the old youtube when you post any video you want and not have to worry about being banned for copyright infringement and ads on the videos. But now Youtube is really stupid is on this copyright and commerical crap! You can't even make a satire, parody or youtube poops by using some 30 sec clip from the movie/tv or even singing some cover songs without them disabling your account even you declare fair use. They don't even take down the videos you flagged you find offensive fast enough or not at all but some clip that has 5 seconds of WMG music on the background music, they have no problem taking that down in 30 seconds. -- Submitted By: (SSM) on May 16, 2011, 4:20 pm

I'm kinda with Soggy on this.

I have a feeling YouTube is going to morph into a form of Hulu where you can watch TV shows, music videos, etc. for a small subscription fee. It's already starting to take that form with the overabundance of commercials. The original purpose, a place for people to make their own videos, is slowly being phased out. As with most things in life, it comes down to the almighty dollar. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on May 16, 2011, 10:53 am

Survivor - TV Shows
Survivor Redemption Island is the last season that I will watch. I've watched every season since the beginning and I'm getting tired of all of the returning players. Boston Rob winning Redemption Island has ended for me. He surely should have won since he is a veteran player of two reality shows and four seasons, plus he had a bunch of lackeys who swooned at his every word, and really were really no competition for him. And now they've announced that Survivor South Pacific will be another rehash with returning players and another redemption island!

California Dreams - TV Shows
Liked this show as a kid, but man watched a clip of it on YouTube and it hasn't aged well at all. Everything about it screams 90s. The clothing, the lingo, the attitude, the music, the messages, etc. It was very similar to Saved by the Bell and never quite as popular or as enjoyable. Sometimes I watch shows from my youth and this is something I notice from many things on the Internet. People reminisce about the programs of their youth and whine about kids today and their shows. From a non-biased perspective, and this can be tough sometimes, I look at the old shows and can see their flaws really exposed. It's funny how memories make things so much better than they probably really are. Nostalgia... it's a love/hate relationship. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on May 16, 2011, 2:44 am

2012 doomsday prediction - Random Topics
The way I see it, if something happens that's as serious as some are worrying about, most or all of us are going to be dead. If nothing happens, life will go on and anyone that worried about it will be probably be embarrassed. Either way, we're not going to have to worry about it anymore once that day come and goes. In my opinion, if you want to have at least a small stockpile of non perishable food and water just in case something happens then that's fine. Heck, it's a good idea to always have one on hand just in case. However, I think making bomb shelters and such is going way too far. -- Submitted By: (ExplodingConsole) on May 15, 2011, 11:49 am

1960's - Random Topics
Pelirojo, I can agree with your comment on the "decline of civility". What I have a problem with is the insistence by others that America itself is in some sort of decline which started in that era. That view is based on a very limited historical perspective. Your reference to the Civil War era demonstrates you have a wider view of things than those who measure the nation's dynamics primarily from the moment of their own birth. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on May 14, 2011, 9:48 pm

George Takei - Celebrities
You won't get dissed by me, my friend. Of course, there was the episode "The Naked Time", where he got to play Three Musketeers. Maybe the saddest thing about the fact that TOS lasted only three seasons was the lack of time to flesh out the personalities of the supporting cast. They were forced to do so in the movies, and that was hardly satisfactory. Considering how the actors - Takei and Koenig and Nichols and Doohan - ended up getting so little non-Star Trek work over the years, it would have at least been a comfort to have had the opportunity to mold their respective Star Trek characters into a complex person. Yet there were few chances to do so, even in the movies. That must have been terribly frustrating for them. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on May 14, 2011, 9:39 pm

Thank you,soggy! I liked this earlier incarnation MUCH better because they actually were willing to evaluate each movie on how they liked it rather than worrying about trends or hype. It was sad to see them interviewing celebs and glomming on the Hollywood scene rather than purely considering the individual movies' merits/weaknesses. Though, this decline wasn't as blatant as Leonard Maltin's on TV, it still was painful see them sell out. All that being said, I DO admire the late Gene Siskel's and Roger Ebert's determination to make the best of tragic physical setbacks! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on May 14, 2011, 3:52 pm

I may get dissed but Sulu always seemed to be a bit of a 'meh' character who only was only slightly more fleshed out than the Red Shirts.

Woodstock - Random Topics
Every American generation's actions and creations are an attempt to refute those of the generation before. The Baby Boom generation is only notable for the enthusiasm with which those refutations were attempted. Here's a thought: If the generation preceding the Boomers had been so very perfect, the Boomers (of whom I am one) would have seen no need to break with them. So why did they? (And forget those glib but shallow excuses like "drugs" or "laziness"; the answer is nowhere near that simple.) On a related track, I must recommend a couple of books here: Generations, by William Strauss and Neil Howe, and its sequel The Fourth Turning, by the same authors. Go to Wikipedia and type "Strauss-Howe generational theory" in the search box. The authors make a compelling case that this country's history (and by implication the history of all societies) has been a series of cycles, each of four distinct (and recurring) generational types. It makes for fascinating reading, and it might deepen your view of the interplay between the Baby Boomers and neighboring generations. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on May 14, 2011, 3:07 am

Star Trek TNG - TV Shows
I'm in the "reverse boned" camp here. Episodes got ALOT more interesting as the series progressed, the actors really grew into their characters, and most of the features that annoyed me - little kids on the ship, the loutish Ferengi, etc - and characters I could do without - Wesley and Yar and Lwaxana Troi - began to fall by the wayside. The maturing of Marina Sirtis as an actor, and the development of her character from an irritating emotion-addled bimbo to a sharp, gutsy, totally legitimate Starfleet officer (albeit - sigh - at the expense of that magnificent cleavage, which began to be covered up by her uniform), sort of encapsulated for me the show's overall growth. By the time the series ended, the cast and writers were hitting on all cylinders on a regular basis. Some episodes were as good as anything that has ever been on TV. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on May 14, 2011, 2:30 am

I frankly preferred the earlier incarnation of the show, Sneak Previews, which aired from 1977 to 1982. Roger and Gene were alot feistier back then, and the show's structure was a bit more to my taste (including the theme music). But I have to agree that Gene's death left an unfillable hole, and while Roeper is plenty articulate and knowledgeable, there was no chemistry to speak of between him and Ebert, and that made the debates alot less interesting for me. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on May 13, 2011, 6:25 pm

Soggy, I understand your point on a fair trial, but there is no comparison between the enemies of Stalin, Mao, etc. to Osama. Most of those tyrants' enemies were innocent people whose only crimes were questioning their governments' actions and policies (or failing to meet their quota), and were killed without a trial because their beliefs could not be tolerated. Osama, on the other hand, was a murderous beast. He was a danger and had to be removed. The purpose of a trial is to find out if a defendant is guilty or not, and to give them the chance to defend themselves. Then, there's the chance that he'd escape if caught alive. His death saved us the cost of a trial, considering these hard economic times. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on May 13, 2011, 12:09 pm

I'm a huge Superman fan and the only reason I've continue to watch this show is my loyalty to the character. It really started downhill in Season 4. A story arch with Lana be possessed by a witch?! I know they weren't following the mythos exact but the witch story line was just too out there. That was the point for me when it just started to be a chore to watch the show instead of being enjoyable. They finally put Clark in glasses after 9 1/2 years and suddenly everyone around him isn't going to figure out "Hey doesn't Superman look like Clark from 3 months ago?". And Jor-El is practically a sentient life form instead of just being a computer. How many times has Jor-el taken/given superpowers to Clark and other characters? The ultimate jump the shark/ bone the fish moment for me was a couple years ago when they had Clark be weakened by Kryptonite laced money. -- Submitted By: (krazykp21) on May 13, 2011, 11:09 am

Only a few of those hundred-plus followers were people I knew; the rest were complete strangers (and obviously people who didn't have lives of their own and were probably following thousands of folks they didn't know).

That's a very good point! Napoleon was regarded by his contemporaries (though of course not by most of his subjects) every bit as darkly as Hitler was regarded by his, and for very good reason: He was a megalomaniacal monster who cared only for himself. Yet he is indeed lionized to this day in France. It's kind of perverse, isn't it? -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on May 13, 2011, 2:41 am

I don't believe America was ever innocent in the first place. (That's not a criticism, by the way.) -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on May 13, 2011, 2:27 am

Major League Soccer (MLS) - Random Topics
A fair point, though it does suggest a pretty strong reason why soccer may never be more than marginally popular here in the USA: The difficulty in scoring. We Yanks like games in which we don't have to wait forever before points are scored. (Most baseball fans don't loving pitching duels, for example.) -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on May 13, 2011, 2:16 am

Michael Moore - Celebrities
Is he even relevant anymore? With Bush gone, the MSM has no need for him. Same with former media darling Cindy Sheehan; now that she's an Anti-Obama kook instead of an anti-Bush kook, the media won't touch her. By the way, if you want to see a great parody of Michael Moore, check out David Zucker's "An American Carol". -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on May 12, 2011, 10:01 pm

Michael Moore - Celebrities
Had he been taken alive - and again I want to stress that I'm glad he wasn't - it would have been un-American to have executed him without a fair trial. Those of you who approve of the way Hitler and Stalin and Mao and Ho Chi Minh and Saddam Hussein got rid of their enemies are welcome to disagree with me on this, but I believe America has higher ethical standards than those guys had. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on May 12, 2011, 8:27 pm

@Soggy: I can't really say that I disagree with his thoughts about Osama being hanged, but I don't see the point of giving him a trial. -- Submitted By: (cartooner) on May 12, 2011, 6:08 pm

Major League Soccer (MLS) - Random Topics
Ending in ties/draws can be silly, but I will say that I'd prefer that over them to just keep going on until somebody scores (because, for some games, it could take hours). -- Submitted By: (cartooner) on May 12, 2011, 3:39 pm

Gilligan's Island - TV Shows
Several years ago I was on a jag of reading autobiographies of 60's & 70's TV stars (Barry Williams, Mickey Dolenz, etc.) One of those Auto-Bio's I read was that of Russell Johnson titled 'Here on Gilligan's Isle.' Very entertaining read if you ever come across it. SPOILER ALERT!!!!!!!>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Before reading that book, I never knew that Russell Johnson was one of the top contenders for the role of Captain Christopher Pike in the original Star Trek pilot (the role which ultimately went to Jeffrey Hunter). -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on May 12, 2011, 10:56 am

Lost in Space - TV Shows
I got rather tired of Dr. Smith and wouldn't have been surprised if the 'Special Guest Star' credit for Jonathan Harris may have to stoke viewers' hopes that maybe THIS episode would be the LAST one with Dr. Smith! Oh, and I think they DID have the potential for developing more interesting characters from the rest of the cast. I always thought that Major West and Judy Robinson were a hot couple! Moreover, I liked Don West the best of the other characters because he was the only one who didn't pretend to like Dr. Smith and would have GLADLY exiled him to a nearby astroid but, alas, always got overruled by the others. Now, if only Will Robinson had had the powers of Bill Mumy's previous role of the evil child Anthony on "Twilight Zone" and used them to send Dr. Smith to the cornfield! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on May 12, 2011, 10:50 am

France - Random Topics
For myself, I appreciate its delicious cuisine, contributions to culture and art and admire their valor against overwhelming odds during both world wars and the Franco-Prussian War. However; considering the man went to war and/or invaded virtually ALL my ancestral homelands, I'm NOT happy that they consider Napoleon a hero! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on May 12, 2011, 10:35 am

In theory, good question. In practice, re the Channel called 'History', there's so little actual history there, this show fits right in along with "Ice Road Truckers" and "Planet of the Apes". There oughta be law. . . -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on May 12, 2011, 10:32 am

I like that the playoffs this year are a little more unpredictable (bye-bye Lakers), but still the NBA season is way too long. I think everything should be wrapped up by the end of May. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on May 12, 2011, 9:47 am

Michael Moore - Celebrities
In Moore's defense (and this is the FIRST time I have ever defended anything that has come out of that lowlife's pie hole), he said we should have tried OBL and then hanged him. That doesn't sound terribly unreasonable enough to me, though I'm glad we splattered his brains all over his bedroom instead. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on May 12, 2011, 8:03 am

Barbara Streisand - Celebrities
I'm told she insists that people who apply to work for her must disclose their political identity. Apparently she doesn't view EEOC laws as applying to her. As for her preaching, I can only say that I tend not to give a great deal of weight to advice dispensed by people who admit to visiting a psychiatrist twice a week, every week FOR THE PAST FORTY YEARS. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on May 12, 2011, 3:00 am

Rock music - Random Topics
Prove what? You're the one who claims, in typical sweeping DolFan hyperbolic overkill fashion, that "rock is dead". Yet you have written nothing which backs up that claim. I could offer evidence to you that you are mistaken, in the form of a list of very good bands of, say, the last fifteen years. (And none of them have members in their 50s or 60s, perish the thought; dinosaur bands on the comeback trail are an irrelevancy as far as I'm concerned.) I could send you links to YouTube vids of these bands. I could send you stuff from my own mp3 collection. If you wanted to exchange email addresses with me, I'd be happy to expand your mind on this matter. Rock is neither dead nor particularly ill. (Neither is metal.) The music business, as it's currently structured, might be in serious trouble - and I'm rather pleased that it is - but the product itself is just fine. Oh, and by the way, where I come from, a "diatribe" is an angry denunciation of something or someone. My previous defense of rock music was neither angry nor denunciatory. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on May 12, 2011, 2:33 am

Major League Soccer (MLS) - Random Topics

Jefferson Starship - Music Groups
When an edgy band becomes a pop band, you have your classic example of fish-boning. But the last couple of years before Airplane became Starship saw a band in serious trouble. (The old "creative differences" story, plus too many chemicals....) The boning process was well underway by the time of the name/format change. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on May 12, 2011, 1:45 am

Good question. If the show doesn't cover American history in more than a cursory way, it has no business being on a network with the word "history" in its name. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on May 12, 2011, 1:27 am

George W. Bush - Celebrities
No it's not "indisputable", unless one limits oneself to a single yardstick with which to measure the country. Dol, it would be helpful if you gave us your definition of the word "decline"; I suspect it's a far narrower definition than mine. Besides, American history has been a series of ebbs and flows, peaks and valleys. Right now we're in a somewhat static position, but so what? It doesn't mean the USA is on some permanent downhill slide. What it DOES mean is that people who are blind without their ideology-colored glasses - who can't conceive of our nation doing well unless their own party is running the show - have this maddening tendency to exaggerate our woes when the other party is in power. (And also to underestimate - often to an almost criminal degree - the strength of the American people to survive these bumps in the road and rise to new heights. To his everlasting credit, Ronald Reagan deeply understood this, and recognized the strength and durability and genius of his countrymen. I think George Bush understands it too; it's a pity so many of his fans don't.) -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on May 12, 2011, 1:24 am

Michael Moore thinks Osama bin Laden deserved a fair trial? *facepalm* Just when I think people can't possibly be any dumber, someone like Michael Moore proves me wrong. -- Submitted By: (BigAl) on May 12, 2011, 12:19 am
