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.

Now all we need to do is get women to figure this out instead of being brainwashed by society into thinking they *must* be stick-thin to validate themselves as human beings. It's horrible.

Chubby, the French Army performed as well in World War 1 as any other. (It scored the war's first allied victory, pretty much singlehandedly, in the 1st Marne campaign, and was ferocious at Verdun.) And the problem in World War 2 had much more to do with a poorly-designed military-civilian command structure than with the fighting abilities of the army itself. (Read any in-depth book on the 1940 campaign and you'll see what I mean.) The Red Army had some of the same structural problems in 1941, but it managed to stay in business long enough to (largely) correct them as the war went on. Hell, the British Army since 1900 can't claim any huge amount of glory either, aside from Alamein and a few secondary victories. Yet we don't make fun of British military prowess like we do the French. And why not? Because the British are our "cousins". And the French don't line up dutifully behind us every time we throw our weight around, whereas the British generally do. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on May 11, 2011, 8:49 pm

Gangland - TV Shows
I agree with Robert. A case can be made for shows about the Mafia on The History Channel, since they go back to the early 20th century in America and have had a notable impact on our history. The oldest of the street gangs covered by the show date from, what, the '70s? (The MCs go back somewhat farther, of course.) The show is undeniably interesting, in a depressing sort of way - every person featured on them deserves a bullet to the head - but it's questionable to me whether it ought to be on THC. Another depressing thought: I wonder when they're going to run out of gangs to examine. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on May 11, 2011, 12:12 pm

I too think the skeleton look is revolting. And indeed, it is more unhealthy to be excessively skinny than excessively fat. Too skinny means you're not getting enough nutrients, which cause neurological and physical impairments which could stay with you for the rest of your life. Too fat means you're more likely to get a heart attack, but there's still time to prevent it. The same can't be said for the permanent effects of malnutrition. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on May 11, 2011, 10:49 am

An old Oregon Duck? That explains a lot, actually :-) But that's my whole point--all the corruption and hypocrisy has overwhelmed the games themselves. One literally can't watch a game these days without hearing about the other stuff, and now it's taken center stage and reached a point I cannot ignore. The Fiesta Bowl fiasco, the government finally realizing what a farce the BCS is, certain schools allowed to get away with rampant rulebreaking while others get the book thrown at them simply for not being a member of the "right" conferences, the Cam Newton thing, all of that was just too much for me to take. And as long as everyone else accepts it the problems will only get worse until one day even you won't be able to sweep them under the rug. Just like with America itself, things can only keep degenerating for so long before the bottom drops out. Just look at what's happening to the NFL right now for the proof of that. -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on May 11, 2011, 5:22 am

Intervention - TV Shows
If it's scripted, the producers deserve to be shot. Personally, I'm willing to accept that it's real, but whatever educational value the show has is lost on me; I just can't get past feeling like a really nasty voyeur watching something so personal and painful (and absolutely none of my business). If I were an addict I would be violently opposed to my life being splashed across millions of TV screens. For every viewer who tunes in to get educated, there is at least one who is tuning in to be entertained. You and I know that, and the producers and network heads know it too - but they're clearly okay with it. Therefore, I say this show boned the fish from the moment the network approved its airing. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on May 11, 2011, 3:04 am

The path she has chosen - the reality show - is one that all too many young people in her position would choose. Is it a wise choice? I don't think so.

Dol, I'm seeing the same light I've seen all along. And I'm not deluded by either the left or the right, which is why I am no more likely to buy the nonsense thrown by the right at Mr Obama than I was to buy the nonsense thrown by the left at Mr Bush. And hysterical hyperbole, of the America-is-being-destroyed-from-within sort, doesn't get far with me either. "Sadly, America likely won't last five more years..." is as silly a statement today as it was in the '90s, when the right said it about Clinton, and the '80s, when the left said it about Reagan. You hyperpartisans really need to control your urges to wallow in melodrama. Or at least read some U.S. history and get a broader perspective on the continuing evolution of America, and on the strength of our people and institutions to withstand the pressures that the Henny Penny partisans are forever crying will soon lead to our doom. (Why is it that only lefties and righties indulge in that sort of apocalyptic foolishness? One never hears that sort of talk from moderates. I'll answer my own question: Because moderates have their heads screwed on right. And they don't engage in fearmongering or drama-queening.) -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on May 11, 2011, 2:20 am

True enough. But Irwin Allen saw the wisdom in having one main character who was a jerk. (He used the same formula with Land of the Giants.) It's a handy device that creates more opportunities for conflict. It also allows for a little tension between characters, of the sort that several good series employed. (Spock vs McCoy, Festus vs Doc, Magnum vs Higgins....) And frankly, Smith was the most interesting character on the show; the rest were pretty colorless.

STRONGLY disagree with that.

Just visited the blog for the first time. I think that makes me Visitor #17 since she started the thing a couple of years ago. (She has exactly two "followers" as I write this, which is just sad.) You know, this is why I live in fear that someone will ask me why I don't become the 97,000,000th person on Planet Earth to start a blog. They may as well tell me: "Soggy, it must really suck to have no friends and only a marginal life." Here's the basic formula: You write a bunch of bitter shit about how misunderstood/unappreciated you are, burp out a few painfully lightweight album or movie reviews from time to time, strike a self-indulgent (not to mention self-delusional) little pose as an oh-so-world-weary philosopher/intellectual, chronicle the latest who-cares events in your nobody life - or perhaps the latest cute trick you taught your cat - as if anybody (besides those two followers) gives the first shit about any of it, and then shake your little fist at an established site with a thousand-plus members - that would of course be BTF - for allowing a few of its feistier personalities to tease you on its boards. If I were ever to announce my intention to start a blog, I would fully expect people to shake their heads in concern and tell me: "Ohh, you poor man." At least ninety percent of blogs are melancholy places like this one; essentially a lonely person talking to an empty room. (This is true of ninety percent of self-published books too.) I'd sooner blow my brains out than start a blog.

Monty Python's Flying Circus premiered to a bewildered British public on October 5th, 1969. It would, though, become one of the most influential shows in television history. From Saturday Night Live to Kids in the Hall to South Park, the offshoots of Python are numerous. While the show wasn't on for very long, it made made a tremendous impact in the world of television, film, and music. It took snappy British humor, surreal animation, and general goofiness and combined it into a an awe inspiring sketch comedy show that still has viewers young and old roaring with laughter 42 years after its premiere. -- Submitted By: (dcvianc) on May 9, 2011, 11:29 pm

Chicago - Music Groups
Chicago Transit Authority started off as a ground breaking, boarder line experimental, jazz fusion band, with a sound that was powerful, funky, yet tight as a knot. Then Terry Kath shot himself and the band became a top 40 machine that sold out and churned out sappy power ballads. Sad, really; but sometimes one person does make that much of a difference. -- Submitted By: (dcvianc) on May 9, 2011, 11:13 pm

Type O Negative - Music Groups
(Later, after Soggy has taken Chubby Rain's advice) Hmmm..... Okay, Carnivore's two albums are interesting (especially the second), and one can spot the commonality between the two bands, mainly in that little skip-stutter at the end of almost every song, as well as the often tongue-in-cheek lyrics. (Or maybe tongue-in-butt-cheek.) But Kenny Hickey is a vastly better guitarist than the guy who played guitar for Carnivore, and Steele's amazing voice was used to much better effect on Type O's work. (I'd give almost anything to have a voice like that.) -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on May 9, 2011, 11:10 pm

Osama bin Laden - Celebrities
I'd have taken considerable pleasure in killing the piece of shit myself. And I'd have taken my time doing it too. If that makes me an insensitive brute, then I'm a very happy insensitive brute. (But hey, my dog would put up a good argument to the contrary if he could talk.) -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on May 9, 2011, 10:53 pm

Bristol Palin - Celebrities
Bottom line for me: Bristol Palin has done nothing to earn my hatred. If she has made some questionable choices - and I'm talking about her various high-profile activities, not her teenage mommyhood - they are choices a good many other young women (or young men) in her position would have made. True, I don't like her mother, and I'm pretty underwhelmed by her father too. But beating up on a kid like Bristol - or any other teenager who isn't engaged in criminal activity - is a no-class thing for a grownup to do, and critics of her mother really need to consider whether they want to travel down the same low road as those rightwing pukes who mocked Chelsea Clinton back in the '90s. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on May 9, 2011, 10:41 pm

George W. Bush - Celebrities
I am FAR from being a rightwinger, but I believe history will be kinder to Mr Bush than some of our friends here might wish to believe. I do think his choice of advisors was a mixed bag - Rumsfeld, Wolfowitz and Rove shouldn't have been allowed anywhere near the White House - and it's hard not to believe that he hungered for an excuse - ANY excuse, no matter how dubious - to take down Saddam Hussein from the moment he declared his candidacy. (And for the most personal, albeit sympathetic, of reasons.) But he was, and remains, basically a decent and honorable man, and while I opposed the Iraq enterprise (at least after about 2004), I never could find it in myself to dislike the guy. Much of the left's treatment of him has been not only excessively unfair but disgustingly sadistic. Again, I am no fan of the GOP, and I despise neocons and the so-called Religious Right in equal measure. But I have a hunch that historians thirty or forty years down the road - or at least the intellectually honest historians - will be in a position to evaluate Bush and his legacy alot more accurately than people do today, and while he'll never end up on Mt Rushmore, it would not surprise me to see him ranked someday in the upper half of our presidents. And that would be fine with me. I hope his retirement is peaceful and happy. (Rummy and Rove, not so much.) -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on May 9, 2011, 10:09 pm

Dirty Harry - Movie Series
I agree with the last post (though Jonkaplanseaver uses the word "protagonist" where he should have used the word "antagonist"). It's no coincidence that the best movie in the series also had by far the best villain. In Magnum Force the bad guys were a set of traffic cops; in The Enforcer they were an SLA-style terrorist group. BO-ring. And Sudden Impact featured Clint's (minimally talented) psycho girlfriend playing a psycho rape victim turned murderous avenger. I can't even remember who the bad guy was in The Dead Pool. But Andy Robinson rocked as Scorpio - easily one of the best movie villains of all time. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on May 9, 2011, 9:16 pm

Wild Wild West, The - TV Shows
The Boning Reason labeled "Same Character, Different Actor" is wrong; Ross Martin was the only actor to play Artemus in the series, and in the TV movies too. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on May 9, 2011, 8:39 pm

Monty Python film series - Movie Series
Funny Story-I was at a motivational company annual meeting and the speaker did a round of "always look on the bright side of life." Seeing the CEO say, with 4,000 business people, "lifes a piece of S...., when you look at it" was rather hysterical. -- Submitted By: (jonkaplanseaver) on May 9, 2011, 3:19 pm

Love Bug, The - Movie Series
This is a great example of a movie that did not bone (before Lindsay), most likely only because I watched and loved them as a young child. If I saw them again, I might feel differently. -- Submitted By: (jonkaplanseaver) on May 9, 2011, 3:15 pm

Harold & Kumar movies - Movie Series
Why can't hollywood make vastly more movies without an agenda, or at least an original agenda. -- Submitted By: (jonkaplanseaver) on May 9, 2011, 3:05 pm

Dirty Harry - Movie Series
Eastwood's Dirty Harry was great, but you need a protaganist. Andrew Robinson supplied that, his followers didn't. -- Submitted By: (jonkaplanseaver) on May 9, 2011, 3:00 pm

Happy Days - TV Shows
Richie and Fonzie's interaction and Ron Howard and Henry Winkler's chemistry is what made the show, when the link was severed, that was that. -- Submitted By: (jonkaplanseaver) on May 9, 2011, 2:57 pm

Must Love Cats - TV Shows
I love John's "kitty ditties". The little 30 second songs he writes about the cats he "meets". LOL! I want to send John a picture of my cat and have him write a song! -- Submitted By: (Stephanie) on May 9, 2011, 2:54 pm

Caddyshack-Star making for Rodney Dangerfield, Caddyshack 2-Jackie Mason thought he could get the same kind of rub. Nuf said. -- Submitted By: (jonkaplanseaver) on May 9, 2011, 2:47 pm

Hogan's Heroes - TV Shows
Re: Ivan Dixon, it's true that Kinch didn't have too many good lines. But he was portrayed as the most responsible and intelligent of the POWs (aside from Hogan himself), and that must surely have counted for something. Besides, character development wasn't really a focus of the show; none of the characters was really fleshed out all that much during the show's six years. The weirdest thing about this show is that all the major German characters were played by Jewish actors. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on May 9, 2011, 2:33 pm

Penn & Teller: Bullshit! - TV Shows
I'm not sure exactly when the censorship began. We, the viewers, found out about it with the DVD release of season 7, but if I had to guess, I'd say it goes back as far as season 5. That's where things started getting suspicious. -- Submitted By: (TheCeej) on May 9, 2011, 10:35 am

I saw many odd couples in film and theater. Klugman and Randell were the gold standard. -- Submitted By: (jonkaplanseaver) on May 9, 2011, 1:30 am

Star Trek: Deep Space 9 - TV Shows
As great as the regulars were (abonjeanie,shimmerman,dorn, meanie), the semi regulars, as a collection, were even better. Robinson,Fletcher,Mark Alaimo,James Darren,etc. Excepting the first two to three years, episode for episode, this is the best Star Trek by a long shot. -- Submitted By: (jonkaplanseaver) on May 9, 2011, 1:23 am

St. Elsewhere - TV Shows
This was the greatest medical drama I have ever seen. The acting was brilliant as was the script writing. I still miss this show. -- Submitted By: (jonkaplanseaver) on May 9, 2011, 1:14 am

Soap - TV Shows
The funniest scripted show I have ever seen. Think about Richard Mulligan's actions when he thought he was becoming invisible. Just an example of a show so funny that a single memory is funnier than half the existing shows out there. -- Submitted By: (jonkaplanseaver) on May 9, 2011, 1:08 am

The mother on the show also played billys teacher and lover on Soap. Talk about cornering the market on bad and good television. -- Submitted By: (jonkaplanseaver) on May 9, 2011, 1:03 am
