Facebook without the Facebook

Facebook is about to drive me nuts but it's the best way for me to stay in conctact with family and friends. What I need is like a power-tool for Facbook, some sort of front-end or standalone app perhaps?

I would love to be able to filter for and against certain keywords, but more importantly would like a very finegrained control of what I see from various people. Ideally in a more overview-friendly way than the groups and lists functions work. I would love something that let me right at the DB level do shit like:
Uncle Bob: show me status-updates with more than five comments or ten likes. Show me pictures he uploads, but not ones he links to or shares.
Philippa: Show me everything except shared links with the following keywords money, children, finances.
You get the idea perhaps. FB took the cake today by taking up feedspace with my friends commenting on *their* friends status updates. I really don't need to know it's their cousins birthday. Also, where's the button to stop showing me new comments on a status that I neither liked nor commented on.
