Hiatus Test: Chatter Post

Since forums are a bit beyond my capacity I wondered, during this hiatus void, if you all would be interested in having a daily 'off-topic' post just to chat about Bones or anything else going on in the world?

Consider this the first one, as a test. There are only 2 rules at this point:

  • Keep it clean
  • No spoilers

Otherwise, talk about whatever you want!

If you enjoy them I will keep posting them throughout the hiatus and even after.

I am also looking at revamping the Master Episode List to include links to all music and discussion posts as well, while adding a slew of new discussion posts to cover all the episodes that pre-date the live discussion posts already in existence.

I'd be happy to know your thoughts on these ideas or anything else you'd like to see here! Meanwhile, I am going to go read about making your own baby food! :)

I am so upset that I really cried. Please anybody, do you think any of these these rumors are true about David Boreanaz in Star Magazine? God I hope not!!!!

olivia said...

What rumors? I am out of loop? *off to search*

Kate said...

Umm, that's really out of nowhere, but a) rumors and b)Star Magazine. Why would you believe anything in a tabloid?

Also, I have no idea what you're talking about.

olivia said...

Ok found it. No, I don't buy anything star magazine reports. Doesn't deserve our time or attention.

Wendy said...

Pretty much no Bones site reported it because it's utter crap. Even if it were true it wouldn't be our business.

olivia said...

So let's talk about something else much more interesting... Brennan's clothes. I know I have seen mixed reviews of the new "style" this season. The fisrt couple eps were a bit weak (that dress in HitF, eh no)...but I love her flirty dresses in NitBM. But where are the necklaces?

Anonymous said...

it definitely changes your perspective on DB if it is true. but, there is no way to know. and not really our business. but it is kindof a disturbing rumor

Jessica said...

She is dressing more feminine and I do like it but some of the clothes don't do her body justice and I miss the big necklaces she is beautifull I liked the dress in the end scene of NitM wow that cleavage and the drss from the egg scene was pretty to, and No I don't believe those rumours about DB all these tabloids are messing with peoples lives

leeloo said...

I LUUUUVED Brennan's necklaces. I'm still trying to find out whether they're available online.

As for the clothes: I prefer Brennan's style in season's 1 & 2. I think that in seasons 3 & 4 they made her look a bit older and more scary. Sometimes they put too much dark eye shadow and not enough light on ED face. That doesn't do just for ED green eyes :(

What do you guys think?

On a different topic, I found a fun Iphone app that Bones fans might like. It's a free app called Bones Speed Lite and it is a game/quiz/learning device that goes through different bones in the skeleton (although not all 206 in the free version and I haven't checked out any others). Its fun and I've learned a lot of names of different bones, which makes the scientific talk on the show more understandable. Thoughts other fans might enjoy it.

olivia said...

From ew.com:
Where can I get Emily Deschanel's necklaces from Bones? — Kathi
Deschanel's jewelry is made by Kate Lindsay, who uses found objects (like the Tibetan amulet, above) to craft the one-of-a-kind pieces (which start at $500). To order your own, go to katelindsay.com.

luscious said...

I do not believe the rumours at all I dont think anyone will. I think they need to rethink brennans wardrobe I think she suits season 1 & 2 gear better and Pink is the best live act I think I will ever see if you ever get the chance for this experiance dont pass it up

leeloo said...

@olivia:
thanks for posting that website.
but...wow... starts at $500 ???

Kate said...

@Lealoo,
I know, I was pretty bummed when I found that out too. Any luck on where to look for Brennan's clothes? I still want that top from the Plain in the Prodigy!

You know, assuming it's also not $500. :)

CanuckChick1013 said...

I try not to be negative about things beyond my control, but I have to comment about my Season 4 DVDs for Bones that finally arrived this week. Do others have theird? What do you think? I am very disappointed...the "Special Features" are minimal- and not very good (I was totally hoping for a commentary option like we had for Season 1)...and no option to select scenes?!? I mean, I enjoy watching whole epidoes, but sometimes if I am having a bad day, I just like to watch a favourite scene to cheer me up...like the end of Fire in the Ice :) I don't even like the packaging design...you have to remove the first disc to even see the episode list!
Does anyone know who/where/how you can send feedback to the folks at Fox about this product??

olivia said...

@CC1013- I agree with all your comments. Plus, I know the first 4 episodes of s4 are on the s3 set, but would it have killed them to repost on this set too? It just feels incomplete and PPitPP is just an odd place to start a seaon. It just feel like they threw this one together fast!

Phillip said...

i don't get my Bones Season 4 discs until Monday. Can't wait to see them in high def

nicolle said...

I don't know about you guys but I think the clothes this season make Emily look very chubby. My dad even asked me if she was pregnant in real life! Has anyone else noticed this?

Gabby said...

A simple outfit that Brennan wore that I really liked was the one in BitB, in the final plumbing scene. The baby blue button down really brought out the color of her eyes. Other than that I'm more into Angie's and Cam's clothes.

BTW, I dont believe in the rumors either!!!

Anonymous said...

Yes, I also feel that the clothes are making Emily look a little chubby. All that layering of clothing and too many coats. I feel bad for her because they are making Cam and Angela looks more stylish than her. She looks awesome when it's a simple shirt or when she's going to an event. She looked soooo pretty on last weeks epi. I just wished they would have kissed.

CupcakeBean said...

They're taking nominations for The People's Choice Awards... And Bones isn't nominated! Let's get Bones, David, and Emily on the ballot!

Go to: http://www.peopleschoice.com/pca/ and click on "Your opinion matters." There's a place at the bottom of each category for you to add your own nomination.

Stephanie said...

CanuckChick1013, I agree that the packaging is terrible. As for the scene selection, there's no scene-by-scene menu, but the scene breaks still exist. Just simply start "Fire in the Ice" and hit the skip scene button on your remote until you get to the end. It's harder, I know, but at least it's better than fast-forwarding the entire episode. Check for a Contact button on the Fox Store site. They probably have a place for feedback there.

I miss Brennan's necklaces, too!! For those of you wanting replicas, you can find some pretty cheap. I've gotten chunky necklaces from Claire's, Wal-mart, and Avon. I went out in search of "Brennan necklaces" some time last year because I loved hers but obviously couldn't afford a 500 dollar necklace. They're not as pretty, of course, but they're nice, cheap alternatives :)

As for Brennan's clothes...they need to get Emily a new stylist or something. It's kind of been irritating me because I really think Emily is SO pretty (like at events and stuff, she always looks gorgeous,) and I feel like they're not letting her be pretty this season (in comparison to past seasons, I mean.) I did like her dresses from "Night at the Bones Museum," and I mostly wish they'd do something different with her hair and stop putting her in so many huge coats. I think Michaela looks amazing this season, though. I've wanted her outfits from, like, every season 5 episode so far!

Courtney said...

Sadly, the rumor is starting to spread - has now shown up in Washington Post, NY Daily News and other media outlets.

True or not, you can't unring a bell and a lot of people will always believe he cheated on his pregnant wife even if it is proved he didn't. We may want to ignore it but it isn't going away and it is being discussed elsewhere by a lot of people.

How a story with literally no evidence gets around the world like wildfire is appalling.

Kim said...

Unfortunately, the rumors about DB are spreading like wildfire over the Internet and it seems each story puts him in a worse light than before, either adding that he was about to leave his wife for the other woman or saying that there were multiple women that he was having affairs with. It seems that he is going to have to do some major damage control whether it is true or not and even though it is none of our business, his public image is seriously suffering.

As for Emily's wardrobe, I completely agree with what everyone has said! I really liked the dress she wore in the egg scene from TNatBM but other than that, I am kind of meh about her outfits this season, which is a shame because she really is very pretty!

Justin said...

@Wendy-
you broke one of your own rules! lol.

Wendy said...

Um (and I mean this in the most naive I'm-generally-ditsy-on-here-way) how? lol

elmarie said...

Ugh all that rumor crap is so stupid!! DB would never cheat on his wife--ever--it would be nice if HH could give us a confirmation of DB's fidelity on Twitter.

I totally agree with all the wardrobe chatter. I miss the days of button-down, white shirts and jeans with an awesome necklace(season 1 cover). And yes I agree Cam and Ange look amazing--I especially love the little swirly details on Ange's lab coat lapels.

As far as the S4 dvds go, I was very mad. What was the deal with the little cardboard thing on the front? I mean it's kind of cool as a mini-poster or something, but the sticky strips made these weird wrinkles on the plastic.

COME ON BONES GET BACK ON YOUR GAME!!!

Anonymous said...

It's unfortunate that the rumor is spreading but every one only has one (highly suspect) source: Start magazine. Nobody has been able to get any legitimate source or evidence (and I'm sure they're all trying!)

Nice article defending David:

http://www.examiner.com/x-9582-Celebrity-Families-Examiner~y2009m10d23-David-Boreanaz-unfaithful

(But, unfortunately, simply by writing that article it gives the gossip more publicity...)

Anonymous said...

Oops--Star Magazine, not Start of course!

Justin said...

well, i always thoguht crap was a swear word. but, seeing as a lot of other people have said it in the post, i guess not.
my bad.

Courtney said...

His wife must be reeling - it is impossible not to wonder if it is true even if your husband is saying otherwise. I just hope DB is able to disprove it to the only person who matters - his wife.

I love the characters he has played but I don't pretend to have any idea whatsoever about him as a person in his private life so there is no way I could ever say whether he could or could not do this...none of us knows the man. I just hope for his wife and family's sake, it did not happen.

Wendy said...

@Justin - I thought you might mean that. Well, I guess it's a grey area. Unfortunately I say it too much. It's on my 'to stop saying list' now that I have a baby. But obviously I have some work to do....

Phillip said...

i saw a post somewhere on the web that disproved the rumours.

The pic Star mag is using on the cover supposedly of DB and this fame hungry slapper is a dodgy photoshop job. The pic of DB is from some appearance he did. Identical clothing and pose.

Tabloids will publish any old b/s.

Anonymous said...

If these rumors are true I will be devastated. How could he do this to his wife and children. This guy in my opinion is the best looking man in Hollywood. Women probably throw themselves at him. He probably tried to hit on Emily and she told him to go to hell. She has too much class for this horndog. Being drop dead gorgeous doesn't make you a good person. I really feel bad for his lovely family.

Emma said...

Star magazine is complete trash. No other magazines such as People, US Weekly or the other somewhat respectable mags. have posted about this "affair". Star's just trying to get idiots to boast up their sales.

poskisuudelma said...

At first I thought "No way would Boreanaz cheat!" but then I remembered: hey, I don't know the man personally. But I think I've seen enough interviews to know something general about him, his overall character, and I would be really, really surprised to learn that he cheated on his wife while she was pregnant.

Then again, we don't know about the conditions, if it turns out to be true. They may have had some sort of agreement: she's decided sex doesn't go with the pregnancy and given David a free pass, go boink someone and leave me alone. :D Or something along those lines. We really don't know what's going on there.

Anyway, if we don't get anything more than the word of Star Magazine, I say it's bull. :) Innocent until proven otherwise.

(and I have to say: I hope he has better taste than that... >_<)

Courtney said...

I was wondering which episode has the scene where Hodgins does an experiment and a chicken (I think it is a chicken) hits Angela on the head.

I've seen all the reruns on TNT and that episode has not appeared in rotation?

Does someone know which episode it is and why they haven't shown it in reruns?

Thanks

BB Shipper said...

@Courtney ... I cannot believe I can't tell you which episode that was! Ithought i knew all my eps...I'm trying to remember if it was the woodchipper episode early in the series.... But I also think max and parker and sweets were in that ep too which means it could not be season 1 or 2... Darn it! Now it's gonna drive me crazy.

Wendy said...

It's season 4 but I can't tell you which one, off-hand, either. sad

Lily said...

Isn't it 'The Science in the Physicist' with Vincent? My first thought...

Teri =) said...

If it is Science in the Physicist, I too have been waiting for TNT to replay that one..... I have been wondering why they haven't.

Courtney said...

I know its not the woodchipper one and it is in season four.

Maybe there are some music rights issues or something that keeps it from the rerun rotation for now.

That is one episode that I really cannot recall and would love to see it again. Maybe it will come around soon.

Phillip said...

It is indeed 'The Science In The Physicist' Episode 419

The start of the frozen turkey dropping scene is at 18:08


[[I'm not sad enough to know this lol, i have Bones Season 4 on my external hard drive coz i doesn't come out here till monday.]]


If they are doing it in sequence then they just might not have gotten to it yet....


Hope that helps.

Teri =) said...

They were replaying them mostly in order on TNT but skipped that one & started over again with Season 1. I remember that episode having some fun scenes!

BB Shipper said...

Yep confirmed it is SITP episode in season 4

And watching it as we speak in your honor @Courtney and @Teri

BB Shipper said...

Courtney said...

Thanks all. They did skip it when they were running the episodes for season four. Hopefully, they will sort out whatever issues are holding it from rotation and it will appear next time around.

Teri =) said...

Thanks BB Shipper! =)

I agree with Stephanie. Please, please get Emily a new stylist. Her hair is a disaster and her clothes are making her look frumpy. She is a beautiful woman and I think they are trying to style her too much. She looked so much better in the earlier seasons. It was a more natural less sophisticated look.

Jeannie said...

Chiming in to agree with everybody about Emily's clothes on the show. Awful! It's making her look horrible and most of them are beyond believable work outfits. Only thing I liked recently was the fact that she wore that white coat several episodes in a row, just like she wore the same shirt in two episodes in season 2. Now that's realistic! Nobody wears totally different clothes every week.

Justin said...

I don't really think it matters what ED wears. The one thing about her clothes... well, she looks kind of preggers. Maybe we can all send a tweet to Hart and see what happens... Lol.

One other thing: DB didnt cheat! cell phone records (though star said they had them, the police wouldnt give things like that to a gossip magazine) claim that DB rarely called this rachel person. its untrue, all of it!

~Justin~

Aleksandra said...

Rarely called?! Why would he call that woman? I didn't believe in all that cheating stuff, but now I'm little bit confused.

Anonymous said...

well maybe he called her/took her card to plan a party
i mean she is an event planner
this whole story sounds sooo weird
they met at his birthday party??? wasnt Jaimie there ?? did he celebrate without his family?
he just flirt with women and ask for their number with his wife hangin around
and calling her from the delivery room
i mean come on
Jaimie is having contractions and David is on the phone with the mistress,
and she is like oh don't mind me please complete your phone conversation with the ****
i mean he seems like such a devoted guy,and that is why they choose him for such B.S story so it would be a great shocker and sell more
i hope he would comment though, or sue them for a huge bile of money

Courtney said...

Where did you read anything about cell phone records and what does the police have to do with any of this? Your comment confused me - can you clarify?

Justin said...

The police dont have anything to do with this. I'm just saying that they wouldn't give out cell phone records. Star Mag claims they have them, but its illegal.

Lisa said...

I have to say that I love the way they dress Brennan, Ange & Cam. I love their dressy dresses, coats, jewelry & shoes. I've even asked Wendy if she knows where they get the clothes from. I do have to agree that sometimes the clothes they put on Emily are a bit big. But, she seems to make it work bc she still looks good.

Shep said...

Yeesh! I'm away for one week-end and I come back to find this! Course I don't believe a word of it - complete load of crap. End of.

I agree with everyone who says Emily needs a change of wardrobe. She looks beautiful in anything but I miss the chunky necklaces too, and I think the jeans and tops combo of previous seasons suit Brennan much better - she can really unleash some Bones-Fu that way too!
