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.

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

Bristol Palin - Celebrities
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. But should that choice make her an object of my contempt? No. How many of us, if offered the opportunity at age 20 to be on a dancing-competition show, or to give a speech for tens of thousands of dollars, or to host our own TV series, would say "No thanks; I think I'll do some more growing up first"? -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on May 11, 2011, 2:43 am

George W. Bush - Celebrities
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

I don't deny that there are problems, and of course I agree regarding the BCS structure. But when you set all that stuff aside and focus on the games themselves, and on the excitement of the season, and on the character of the young men on the field (for the most part), I'll take college football over the NFL any day.

Lost in Space - TV Shows
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. (He also had the best lines by far.) -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on May 11, 2011, 1:40 am

STRONGLY disagree with that. College football has definitely boned in my eyes due to the rampant, institutionalized cheating and the ludicrously selective punishments by the NCAA, not to mention a BCS system so ludicrous that now even the government has finally seen fit to notice. Last season was indeed the last season for me of watching. I don;t even care if the NFL has no season this year, I cannot bring myself to enable the corrupt, amoral and horrible joke college football has become. I feel ashamed for having been an enabler as long as I was. -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on May 10, 2011, 7:09 pm

Thanks for the concern (I'm genuinely touched) but I'm fine.

Red Head Metal Head Blog - Websites
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. Besides, I am under no illusion that I have any thoughts of such originality or profundity that THEY MUST BE SHARED WITH THE WORLD. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on May 10, 2011, 12:43 am

Monty Python's Flying Circus - TV Shows
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.

(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.

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

Tweet from the Cowardly Lion: #CowardlyFelineofOZ@Twitter: We dont really know the Witch of the East's side of the story, do we really know if she attacked Munchkinland? #CowardlyFelineofOZ@Twitter: There is no way a woman on a broom could have caused all of that destruction on the munchkins- it's wat the emerald city tells us... -- Submitted By: (Chubby Rain) on May 8, 2011, 9:36 pm

Rolling Stones, The - Music Groups
When did the Stones bone? Put it this way: A tree planted on that day would be 200 feet tall today. But I do agree with CharlesKim that Keith is boneproof. (His autobiography, which was published last October, is hugely entertaining.) -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on May 8, 2011, 9:23 pm

Joker's Wild, The - TV Shows
It is interesting, I did not know about Jack Berry's role on the scandle ridden show 21, until I saw the movie, Directed by Robert Redford. I am wondering if I knew, whether I would have liked him as much as when I was a fan of the show. -- Submitted By: (jonkaplanseaver) on May 8, 2011, 7:24 pm

Fun Fact:Matt Kennedy Gould, who was the first Joe Schmoe was noted to have actually developed a crush on the character,Dr Pat. Good choice, Dr Pat is Kristen Wiig from Saturday Night Live. -- Submitted By: (jonkaplanseaver) on May 8, 2011, 7:21 pm

Los Angeles - Random Topics
I wouldn't say I hate L.A., exactly. I'd say instead that it's a town best experienced in small doses - maybe once a decade or so. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on May 8, 2011, 7:09 pm

Hogan's Heroes - TV Shows
Ivan Dixon, to my knowledge, got fed up with the lack of diversity in his character. I agree with him, in seems the creators patted themselves on the back for having a African American on the show, and that was that. Having said that, I don't compare, but do put this show in the same general category as "The Producers". Totally lamponing the Nazi's made for great comedy. -- Submitted By: (jonkaplanseaver) on May 8, 2011, 7:08 pm

Highlander: The Series - TV Shows
I have to admit, Adrian Paul was fun to watch and the sword fighting chereography was great. Also Jim Byrnes(Dawson) humanized the show. As long as you can accept the premise (which I admit is an obstacle), it is an easy show to like. -- Submitted By: (jonkaplanseaver) on May 8, 2011, 7:02 pm

Bonanza - TV Shows
And then there was that recurring meme of the doomed fiancee. You'd think the ladies of the Old West would have figured out after awhile that if your beau's last name is Cartwright, you had best run for your life lest you soon find yourself as dead as a red-shirted Star Trek crewman. But no; they kept lining up to get hitched to the old man or one of the boys, and they kept dying. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on May 8, 2011, 7:01 pm

Baa Baa Black Sheep - TV Shows
Had the real 214th Sqdn shot down as many Japanese planes as the TV version, Tojo would have run out of Zeroes by the end of 1943 or so. I enjoyed the show, being the military nut that I am, but I never lost sight of how preposterous the stories were. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on May 8, 2011, 6:45 pm

1960's - Random Topics
Pelirojo, great minds must think alike because I almost wrote that in my earlier post. (I'm a bigtime Civil War nut, and I often use that period as a reference point to remind folks who whine and complain over some modern American irritant about how much worse things could be. It usually doesn't stop their bitching, but oh well.) Not to mention that for black Americans, our country was never a very innocent place to begin with. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on May 8, 2011, 6:34 pm

Twilight - Movie Series
Absolutely, Pelirojo. And get this: We get visitors - including adults - who ask us about the vampires and werewolves as if they really exist. (My canine teeth are a bit longer than average, so I will occasionally flash them at out-of-towners who stop me to ask about Edward and Bella.) But since neither Stephanie Meyer nor her publisher has taken a hardline stance about copyright infringement, enterprising Forks residents are free, and indeed are even encouraged by Ms Meyer, to create and sell their own Twilight-themed products. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on May 8, 2011, 6:25 pm

Coach - TV Shows
As a lifetime University of Minnesota Football fan, a team that has not won the Big Ten championship since 1967, I lived vigariously through the Screaming Eagles when they became good. The fact that they used Gopher football highlights for the Screaming Eagles helped me live out the dream. -- Submitted By: (jonkaplanseaver) on May 8, 2011, 6:13 pm

Andy Griffith Show - TV Shows
I have to agree that the show lost alot when Don Knotts left. Poor Jack Burns tried hard but was totally inadequate as the new deputy. And when they started devoting episodes to the character Howard Sprague, the downward slide REALLY started. (That character was possibly the dullest on any TV show of the era.) But the event that finally lost me as a viewer was the departure of Floyd the Barber at the end of the 7th season. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on May 8, 2011, 6:10 pm

Archie Bunker's Place - TV Shows
An indicitive moment of how the spinoff was not very good was the fact that Archie was a different character. I remember the episode where Sammy Davis Junior came back and Archie surprised Sammy by kissing him. It was indicitive of the watered down Archie and the lack of originality. -- Submitted By: (jonkaplanseaver) on May 8, 2011, 5:43 pm

Andy Griffith Show - TV Shows
I think it lost lots when Don Knotts left. However, the show suceeded at creating a great supporting cast. As a result I never stopped liking it, even when Ken Berry took over(which I know is a different show). -- Submitted By: (jonkaplanseaver) on May 8, 2011, 5:39 pm

All My Children - TV Shows
I watched from 1984(around the time Of Janny's death) to 2007(or so), I guess in a way I am a typical viewer in the sense that i was indicitive of the lack of continued interest. I will tune in again for the last few months because I figure they will through the kichen Sink in at this point. Tad and Erica anyone, heck,I would like to see that purely out of curiosity. I also hear that Zach is coming back, Zach rocked. -- Submitted By: (jonkaplanseaver) on May 8, 2011, 5:31 pm

All in the Family - TV Shows
When Archie mellowed, the show lost its zip. Bringing in Danielle Brisebois was a very unusual attempt to add the cuteness factor into the show. Was their anyone in the country that said "What All in the Family needs is an adorable child?" -- Submitted By: (jonkaplanseaver) on May 8, 2011, 5:22 pm

Lost - TV Shows
I feel Lost is the greatest show ever made and the reason is because it did "Bone the Fish". When the show looked like it could dry up, the creators of the show, Lindelof and Cuse, surprised us with Jack's Flash Forward ("We have to go back Kate"). This allowed the show to finish the way it started and went on to entertainment greatness. -- Submitted By: (jonkaplanseaver) on May 8, 2011, 4:59 pm

It's Me Or the Dog - TV Shows
I honestly do not know how Victoria keeps from grabbing the poor dog away from these dumb-ass owners and as she's leaving with her film crew, advising these said dumb-asses to get a goldfish instead! There have been some episodes where I'm wishing the dog would haul off and totally rip apart the owners! -- Submitted By: (Stephanie) on May 8, 2011, 4:34 pm

London,England - Random Topics
Today is VE Day! I mention that because on the original day in 1945, the streets of London were unabashedly bursting with pride, joy and relief that their nation had defeated the NAZIs and the war in Europe was OVER! They'd seen their city become a battered, scarred and grim battlefield and had suffered many losses and deprivations via the Blitz and war itself but on THIS day, they were all able to CELEBRATE peace and victory! If I ever had the chance to travel back to any one time and place in the past, THIS would be it! Yeah, they were celebrating VE Day elsewhere,too, but here in the States we hadn't suffered the way the British had- and who could uninhibitedly celebrate ANYthing in Stalinist Moscow or Leningrad[ now again rightfully called St. Petersburg]? And, yet, the times I've been to London seeing all the tourist sights, I've wondered how many other tourists[and,for that matter, subjects] have any idea how CLOSE London had come to being obliterated and why VE Day was so vital? -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on May 8, 2011, 4:07 pm

Star Trek - TV Shows
OK, I'm not going to say the show irrevokably boned here but did anyone else think it was just a bit much when Jim discovered his brother and sister-in-law had been fatally attacked in their colony by the giant flying brain cells and his nephew was beamed aboard unconscious- yet Jim barely acknowledged his brother's passing or his nephew's grave condition while endlessly operatically wailing over whether SPOCK would survive said attack? I mean, I know Spock was Jim's best friend and all and the audience had never heard a peep about his brother and bro's family before this but what kind of priorities does one have to get totally emotional over a best friend while ignoring one's own family? Yeah, Spock survived +Kirk was all happy(and some Trek book stated the kid recovered and was raised by his Earth-bound grandma) but, as far as the show was concerned, the nephew might as well STILL be unconscious in an unseen part of the sickbay unvisited and ignored by his uncle! If Kirk didn't care two bits about this particular nuclear family, what was the point of making them related to him instead of maybe friends of friends? -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on May 8, 2011, 3:57 pm

Rifleman, The - TV Shows
That opening of the 11 rifle shots was quite impressive- and showed that Mr. Connors put his physical training and reflex timing from his baseball career to excellent use! That episode was a good one, soggy. I always liked the one in which Lucas was oddly aloof than to this new woman in town who played a song on a guitar- while the kid adored her and then when the kid was trapped in a well, he dreamed of his late mother in a veil playing that song and when she unveiled herself it was the EXACT same actress playing the new woman in town! I often thought it interesting how this was one of the more deep Westerns in that there was so MUCH that had happened with Lucas and his son prior to the timeframe that was too painful for them to discuss yet seemed to have had a profound effect on how they currently lived their lives. Also, while Lucas may have seemed outwardly cold to his motherless son, there was no doubt he adored the boy more than literally his own life. Yeah, I was intrigued by the contrast between this and "Bonanza" in which every single tragedy that had happened re the Cartwrights was endlessly rehashed ,wore their hearts on their sleeves and were totally mushy with each other. Truth be told, I think it was a far more realistic approach as to how so many folks in the 19th century lived their lives! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on May 8, 2011, 3:45 pm

So, soggy. Are you saying that "Twilight" is to your hometown are virtually the equivilant re flying saucer claims to Roswell, New Mexico? Hmm. . . -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on May 8, 2011, 3:30 pm

1960's - Random Topics
Soggy, I agree that that 'lost its innocence' would be a rather foolish claim re the 1960's. If ANY decade could be used re that claim, it would be the EIGHTEEN-60's. An all out war of [often literally] brother vs. brother on our country's own soil killing, wounding,maiming and ruining countless soldiers and civilians not even 90 years after Independence Declared unquestionably stripped away any innocence! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on May 8, 2011, 3:27 pm

Jerry Springer Show, The - TV Shows
When the original, sensible format was abandoned after the first few years, due to low ratings, and replaced by what we see today, immediate fish-boning ensued. The same date - 1994 - represents the start of Springer's own descent into worthlessness. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on May 8, 2011, 1:41 pm

As much as I grouse about BTF, I am happy this place exists and have had a good time here. For that reason, I'm not so heartbroken over JTS's fate, since BTF would not exist if TV Guide hadn't done what they did to the other place.
