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.

Profanity - Random Topics
How about the other side of the coin? I recently saw "Stir Crazy" on an independent cable channel, and they overdubbed the words "ass kisser" with "brown nose" and the word "prick" with some other G-rated word. Made the joke about 2% as funny as the original exchange. I don't like constant profanity either, but I'm not so uptight that I think every little joke from an R-rated movie has to be overdubbed. I can only imagine how "The Longest Yard" must have been butchered for television. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on August 27, 2012, 4:23 pm

Pornography - Random Topics
I think when VCRs and DVDs became a common appliance to have in the home is when pornography boned. I think that took it from being an "occasional thing" one might catch at some out of the way movie theater somewhere, to being a mainstream thing one could view on a daily basis. That might explain why the term "sex addict" was non-existent in the 1970s, and why so many claim to have that "addiction" now. Just like with drugs, who made the initial decision to have porn at his/her disposal 24/7? There you go. I look at porn quite often. I'm a product of this environment. That doesn't mean I'm going to be dishonest about it, or that I expect it to change. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on August 27, 2012, 4:18 pm

Political Correctness - Random Topics
Political Correctness sucked from Day 1. It is simply a method of "creative censorship". However, instead of outlawing free speech (which would, after all, be politically incorrect), they simply make certain speech so shameful that nobody would want to use it. For while they aren't threatened with arrest, they are threatened with job loss and public ridicule. That's why I LMAO when people get all uptight about Romney calling the London's handling of the Olympics "disconcerting". These days that's considered a gaffe, lol. Political correctness gone berzerk, which was the only path it could ever take. Sucked from Day 1 because it's a quasi-limit to free speech, and it's CLEVER about abridging that right. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on August 27, 2012, 4:10 pm

Philadelphia Eagles - Random Topics
Hated them ever since the Miracle at The Meadowlands and a year before that. What's sad is this team's fans are still stuck in 1978 and that event since they have no rings. Never mind that NYG's first playoff victory in 18 years was in the 1981 wild card game against Philly. They can remember a 1978 regular season win, but not a 1981 playoff loss. Whatever. I will say one thing for their fans though. They know crappy music when they hear it. One playoff game early in the 2000s they had Ja Rule and Ashanti playing the halftime show. They were awful and the crowd booed them lustily. Black Eyed Peas at the SB were Gershwin by comparison. Can't take that away from Philly fans. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on August 27, 2012, 4:04 pm

Pac-Man (video game series) - Random Topics
I think it boned when Ms. Pac-Man appeared on the scene. Slowly but surely, the original Pac-Man started disappearing. Well into the new century I'd see Ms. Pac-Man around in a few places, while the original was long gone. I now have the original as a TV plug and play with Galaxian and a few others. Honorable mention to top 40 hit this game inspired in the early-80s "Pac-Man Fever" by Buckner & Garcia. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on August 27, 2012, 3:51 pm

Never boned. Loved the teams that won with Jim Plunkett at QB. Didn't like the move to LA. Finally got used to calling them LA when they moved back. Then continued to call them LA for several more years. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on August 27, 2012, 3:37 pm

Nudity - Random Topics
Yeah, I know. Get over it. The human body is beautiful, blah blah blah. Sure we all feel that way as long as it's a 20 year old beautiful girl parading around au natural. What put that into perspective for me was visiting Spain. Upon leaving a restaurant near the beach, on my way to the car, I spied what must have been a 75 year old fat woman sunning herself without a stitch of clothing. Gave new meaning to the phrase "discretion is the better part of valor", not to mention certain other choice words it brought to mind that I was too polite to use as a tourist visiting a foreign country. Trust me, nudity has a downside. It may seem like "Playboy Channel Fields Forever", but it ain't a lot of the time. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on August 27, 2012, 3:35 pm

NFL Pro Bowl - Random Topics
It boned for good when it was moved from after the SB, to before the SB, which effectively exempted SB players from appearing in the game. So if your team is in the SB you can't be a pro bowler now? Why not just leave it where it was and let EVERYONE play? Seems the NFL did some actual work here to make this an even more inferior game than it was before. Nice job. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on August 27, 2012, 3:28 pm

New York Yankees - Random Topics
The Yankees couldn't please everyone if they tried. On one side, you have the people gloating over them not having won the series in however many years. On the other, you have the people whining that they win EVERY YEAR because they over pay. Of course, both can't be the case, so what we have is two groups of whiners who don't like the Yankees, but for opposing reasons that can't both be correct. In fact, we won in 2000, then again in 2009 I believe. If results are what matters, clearly the Yankees aren't buying the WS year after year. Take a lesson from Booker T. Washington and worry about making your own teams better rather than blaming mine for your inability to do so. If you had the money to spend, you'd be spending it, maybe not as much as the Yankees, but a helluva lot more than the Pirates, who I doubt you'd pity if you won. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on August 27, 2012, 3:24 pm

Yep, Clinton is when we truly gave the fish a gutting. I still can't think of one thing she did for New Yorkers as Senator and she was there 8 years. Oh, I'm sorry, she did do one thing....she quit to be kicked upstairs into the Obama Administration where she actually did a passable job, just not here. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on August 27, 2012, 3:17 pm

New York Knicks - Random Topics
Why even call it a "Patrick Ewing trade"? That implies we actually got something for him. Can anyone name a single player who was worth a plug nickel that we got in that "trade"? It was more an "Exit...Stage Left" deal, but that could also apply to Jeff Van Gundy, Larry Johnson, Alan Houston, GM Ernie Grunfeld, President Dave Checketts, etc. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on August 27, 2012, 3:15 pm

National Football League (NFL) - Random Topics
You are all now witnessing what will eventually be known as "the beginning of the end" of the NFL. I predict football will either be abolished or greatly toned down in my lifetime. I see the next generation being indoctrinated already. I never thought we'd see the day that grown men would say stuff like "I wouldn't want my son playing football". I don't think a father existed when I was a teenager that would say that. Now I hear potential, just-married, dads saying this before they even have any spawn to worry about. Makes me sad for the emasculated generation of men now coming of age. Also, has anyone noticed that now whenever one of these retirees commits suicide it's automatically the ill effects from a previous concussion? They don't even wait for it to be determined anymore by a coroner. They just automatically assume the guy didn't have some other motive for doing it. "Group think" in the US is out of control. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on August 27, 2012, 3:01 pm

NASA - Random Topics
I think NASA boned for me when I realized they were never going to come remotely close to achieving what I saw depicted on many of my favorite Sci Fi series of the 1960s. Lost In Space was supposed to take place in 1999. Did people actually believe such space travel would be possible by 1999? Seems that mindset had to come from somewhere. History has shown we were way off on that one. Truth is, space travel beyond the moon is largely impractical, and our knowledge of space beyond the moon is progressing at a snail's pace. Even these theories they come out with don't hold water, like the "other Earth" they discovered. How does anyone check the validity of a claim made about a planet umpteen light years away? Don't even get me started on the Mars rovers. What is "Curiosity" supposed to accomplish that the last umpteen rovers didn't again? Finding water that doesn't even appear to exist where their polar icecaps would be? Sure! As for the "technology" this brought about, there's too many unknowns there. For one thing, there's no guarantees that other types of "demand" wouldn't have spawned these things anyway. For another, what affect has all that additional automation had on jobs and the economy? Are we so sure it was a good thing in light of all the downsizing and outsourcing we read about? Are we so sure it's been worth this ridiculous price tag, that we're still afraid to send even lab rats to Mars? Phooey on NASA and the space program.

Napster - Random Topics
Boned when they lost the case. The party was over. On the other hand, they made a super-corrupt industry that was inundated with gangsta-rappers marketing obscenity to children, quake in their boots, and gave rise to other file sharing services with offshore servers that are not subject to US copyright laws. The industry never recovered, but I'm not sure they deserve to after the way they've been ruining music since the mid-1980s. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on August 27, 2012, 11:59 am

MTV: Music Television - Random Topics
MTV wouldnt show MJ's videos originally, because they felt his style didn't fit the "rock" genre which they mainly catered to at the time. They did show black artist, such as Hendrix, The Busboys and John Butcher Axis, as those were considered "rock". MJ didn't want to accept this, so he played the race card. MTV relented and proceeded to increasingly suck throughout the remainder of its life. I stopped watching altogether in the mid-1980s, but I stopped enjoying it around 1984. I also credit MTV with being the main catalyst behind the epidemic of "Swelled Head Syndrome" that pretty much sabotaged popular music in the mid-1980s. Funny thing is their ratings declined during this period, but instead of seeing the truth for what it was (they alienated their original audience by showing Michael Jackson, Billy Ocean and other lame Top-40 crap videos), they decided to launch "programming" like "Remote Control"....another fish boning moment. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on August 27, 2012, 11:55 am

Monopoly - Random Topics
I'm something of a traditionalist with Monopoly. I'm not bothered by the alternate versions so much as I am by people who like to play by their own implausible rules to speed up the game. Sorry, but there's nothing about landing on "Free Parking" being a metaphor for a payout. How often do you park in a free lot finding money lying around? Implausible? You bet it is, and that's why it's not in the rules. Then it seems almost nobody is aware of the rule that when you opt not to buy a property, the remaining players, and yourself, get to bid on it before the next player's turn. Of course, everyone can opt out if they want, but how often would they choose that if they knew they had a choice? If you really want to speed the game up, follow that real rule and put the fake Free Parking payout silliness to rest. It's about winning by getting a real estate monopoly, not by falling ass backwards into a free parking space. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on August 27, 2012, 11:47 am

Moderators (Internet Forum) - Random Topics
Day 1. If the owners of a site are offended by certain words, they can implement software that censors those words, but I'm not a fan of censoring thought even when it's objectionable. Sometimes people can be patently offensive without ever uttering a single obscenity or racial slur, so it's all in the eye of the beholder anyway. Never been on a strictly moderated forum that was worth sticking around. Those are usually humorless, nancy-girl forums where nanny-statists reign supreme.

Major League Baseball - Random Topics
Someone please explain to me why baseball expanded into Miami, Tampa, Colorado and Arizona instead of moving existing teams there, especially when this happened at a time when baseball owners were incessantly whining about the need for a salary cap to protect small market teams. They couldn't find four small market teams to move to these locations and cut their losses instead of creating four new franchises (Montreal, KC and Pittsburgh come to mind right off the bat - and two of those are 60s-ear expansion teams which shows MLB has always sucked at expanding)? You don't expand when you're poor. You expand when you're rich. It's one reason I never backed the owners during the '94-'95 work stoppage. That and the scabs. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on August 27, 2012, 11:32 am

Macarena, The - Random Topics
The Yankees actually did a "Macarena Night" at the stadium in 1996. They also briefly replaced "YMCA" as their 7th inning stretch grounds crew dance song with "The Macarena", and immediately embarked on a lengthy losing streak. Rumor has it George Steinbrenner himself, who was notoriously superstitious, ordered the song changed back. This song always bit the wire, but when a song makes your favorite team suck, it has truly BTF. What gets me is, why "Macarena Night"? Is this a common thing to do for one-hit wonders? Maybe we can have "Kung Fu Fighting Night" or "I Eat Cannibals Night"? Makes me wonder why George Costanza got so much ridicule for proposing "Jon Voigt Day" at the stadium on Seinfeld. At least ol' Jon had more than one "hit." -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on August 27, 2012, 11:23 am

Little Drummer Boy - Random Topics
Never liked this song. The Christmas special was passable when I was a kid, but doesn't get repeated much, probably because it had no staying power, and I'd probably see that now if it was rerun. However, the all time low point that made this song BTF for me is seeing / hearing that lamely done Bing Crosby / David Bowie duet from the late 1970s. Gag me with a friggin' chain saw on that one! Bing sounds like Don Imus is trying to sing it. Bowie does a decent job, but it's still lipstick on a pig. However, I did also consider voting that it "boned back" when a guitar distortion riff in The Chambers Brothers' song "Time Has Come Today" (LP version) sampled it. Few people notice that, and it's kinda cool, but it long pre-dates, and is well offset, by the Crosby / Bowie atrocity. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on August 27, 2012, 11:14 am

Islam - Random Topics
I think it boned when people who tasted actual freedom and should have known better began converting to this idiocy. Examples of this are musician Cat Stevens, and that idiot former club girl who married El-Sayid Nosair. Converting to Islam is an automatic bone. A woman who does it double-bones with no chance of boning back ('cause if she ever does they'll stone her to death....hence why she's an idiot for sigining up in the first place). I will say that I'm not a fan of any religion, but I'm especially not a fan of this one, and double especially not a fan of anyone dumb enough to convert to it. Just volunteer for slavery while you're at it, because there's little difference in terms of subserviance. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on August 27, 2012, 10:40 am

Internet, The - Random Topics
I think it boned when sites and companies began charging for content that had been free. We have seen this happen with MLB radio broadcasts and many news publications. It's almost impossible to find an old news story on the internet anymore without being asked to pay for it. Why should I pay for news that's 30 years old? Classmates is another example of a site that overplayed their hand with this. Even reverse phonebooks charge money to find out who's calling you now. In short, when it changed from an information superhighway to an information toll road, it boned. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on August 27, 2012, 10:34 am

National Football League (NFL) - Random Topics
Not to sound heartless, because the impact of concussions is serious and nothing to laugh about, but why is this all of a sudden groundbreaking news? What do you expect will happen to your brain if it takes a continually pounding by 300 pound men over and over again? It doesn't take a rocket scientist to realize that football is a dangerous game. The whole thing makes me scratch my head. Why in 2012 is this now becoming such a hot button issue? I know because of the lawsuits, but if you expect to go play a game where you are hit hard by 300 pound athletic men for multiple years and come out unscathed, that doesn't take in-depth research to figure out the eventual consequences. It takes common sense from everybody. NFL needs to have a better plan for post-career care, players need to know the risks they are taking by playing for a long time in the NFL, and Gooddell/the owners need to know it makes no sense when you cry safety and then want to extend the season. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on August 23, 2012, 4:57 pm

Feminism - Random Topics
I have a problem with "isms" in general and the equal rights controversy. Until there are no more special rights for women, blacks, gays, etc. and until there are no more special scholarships for them, no more special holidays for them, no more any of that, then we are not equal. Once we ALL have the same EQUAL rights, not SPECIAL rights, and once double standards are over, then we will achieve equal rights. There is major confusion between EQUAL and SPECIAL. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on August 23, 2012, 4:36 pm

Degrassi: The Next Generation - TV Shows
Jumps in and out. Season 12 is on fire, some brilliant stuff. Season 11 is pretty good if a bit filler-y toward the end. Season 10, the first Spinnerless one had some landmark moments and some so-so stretches. Stay away from the instrumental-theme-music era, and tell the later seasons apart at a glance by the changes of dress code: Season 10- early: Normal clothes as per previous years. Late: Strict uniforms, identical khakis looking like they're from the same supplier, blue Degrassi cardigans the only acceptable outerwear, school IDs displayed on lanyards. Season 11- Looser uniforms, any pants that are beige/khaki in color OK as are non-regulation hoodies. Season 12- Back to normal street clothes, retaining displayed IDs. -- Submitted By: (yoda) on August 22, 2012, 7:32 pm

Chrysler - Random Topics
Can I say they un-boned? Their cars from the Daimler era, 300/Magnum/Charger aside, were pure unmitigated crap deliberately dumbed-down so as not to compete with Mercedes models on export markets (!) and a lot of mid-'00s minivans are in worse shape than late '90s pre-Daimler equivalents.

@stryker73. Hell, you can link up the computer to the TV with the HDMI cable now (apparently something that could have been done for years now).

Cable TV - Random Topics
Yeah, we get our 'cable' through our phone & internet provider. No complaints in terms of service but we are definitely weighing our options with regard to 'cutting the cable' in 2013. The cost has really begun to outweigh the benefit in our opinion. With the current package we take, we currently get approximately 300 channels. Easily 20% of those are Spanish language channels. I have nothing against the language or Spanish speaking people in general- but I don't speak the language at all! Thus those channels are useless to me and frankly a waste of my money. another 25% of those are sports channels and- I don't really watch a lot of sports. Again- waste! On top of all that, we just don't watch a lot of television anymore, and when we do- it's very specific shows. I'm thinking we'll keep our internet and phone with our current provider and go with one or two of the On-Demand services (Netflix, Hulu, etc.) and just start buying seasons of our favorite shows on Blu-Ray. -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on August 14, 2012, 3:20 pm

I always liked the fact that, as goofy as his character WAS on "The Monkees", he never pretended to be a hick nor exaggerated/hid his Texan accent but was the closest thing to a voice of reason as could be had in that unreasonable world-and let's keep in mind that they ad libbed a LOT on the set so it wasn't entirely a writer/producer culmination. Also, he declared independence ASAP but evidently stayed friends with the others after the breakup. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on August 13, 2012, 12:52 pm

Dragon's Lair Games - Random Topics
This game is essentially Simon in arcade form. Memorize the pattern, repeat it, and win. Yes, it was a quarter eating monster back in the 80s because it took multiple tries to figure out the pattern, so you'd die over and over and had to keep putting quarters in to get further. However, once you knew the pattern, you could easily beat the game with one quarter. I remember how it stood out in arcades because it looked just like a Disney cartoon. I also remember that the game had zero replay value after you beat it. In the golden era of arcades, this game looked like a gem ahead of its time, but today it's a laughably simplistic game. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on August 13, 2012, 10:22 am

Dragon's Lair Games - Random Topics
When Dragon's Lair came out in the mid-80s, I was in the peak of my video-game playing days, but I took a pass on it. Unless you had the sequences (and timing) of moves memorized down to the last detail, it was a total quarter eater, as others have said. Cool as the concept was, in practical terms the game only had entertainment value if you were the sort of videogamer who got their jollies from memorizing the Pac-Man patterns, OR if you were fortunate enough to be in the arcade when such a person was on the game. Again, the game was a cool idea, but because it was ahead of its time, the implementation was where the de-skeletonized ichthyoids lurked.

Huey Lewis and the News - Music Groups
Do you like Huey Lewis and the News? Their early work was a little too new wave for my taste, but when Sports came out in '83, I think they really came into their own, commercially and artistically. The whole album has a clear, crisp sound, and a new sheen of consummate professionalism that really gives the songs a big boost. He's been compared to Elvis Costello, but I think Huey has a far much more bitter, cynical sense of humor. In '87, Huey released this, Fore, their most accomplished album. I think their undisputed masterpiece is "Hip to be Square", a song so catchy, most people probably don't listen to the lyrics. But they should, because it's not just about the pleasures of conformity, and the importance of trends, it's also a personal statement about the band itself. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on August 12, 2012, 6:00 pm

Multiculturalism - Random Topics
Like it or not, the United States IS a multicultural nation [yes, even in our region, DolFan] and I believe it's to every individual's benefit to know what makes other folks tick as much as possible. It's not that I think other cultures are all sweetness and light while mine is totally rotten to the core [or vice versa] but I believe trying to learn about other cultures and societies can help re understanding and understand beats ignorance any day. Even if one considers another individual an enemy or vice versa, it's better to know their background and MO than be ignorant of this. Learning other languages can be a key to and I wish I knew more than just English and being somewhat functional in Spanish because even the meanings of individual words can unlock so much of people's culture and history which can open quite a few doors. Music, art, ,cuisine, literature, history, etc. of one's own and others can inspire. I agree that following someone else's prescribed curriculum may not be one's best interest; hence I encourage anyone reading this who is interested to go to the nearest library and read the primary sources re all the above and it can't hurt to study the tenets of the world's major religions to help in one's quest. This isn't something that can happen in a single day or semester but may be a quest of a lifetime. For the record, I'm a proud Christian, native-born US citizen man but that doesn't mean I can't be inspired by learning about how others have lived in this world. -- Submitted By: () on August 12, 2012, 3:47 pm

Dragon's Lair Games - Random Topics
I was blown away by the look of this game when I first saw it at Chuck E. Cheese. This game was supposed to be the future of video games. There was a huge line that I had to wait in to play it. When I finally got my turn, some monster was coming at Dirk the Daring, so I moved the joystick. Nothing happened. I died. Then a giant bowling ball came at Dirk and I tried to get away. I died. Then another monster came at Dirk. I tried the "sword" button. I died for the final time. I was done with that stupid game. There was a Saturday morning cartoon of Dragon's Lair on at the time and whenever it was on, I'd bring out my Atari joystick and move it around and say to my brother, "Look, Dirk doesn't do what I tell him; it's just like playing the actual game!" -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on August 12, 2012, 12:50 pm
