The Cowman Show



Throughout the course of this whole blogging experience, I have slowly introduced new themes or features into some of my daily posts. Some of these would be the "Wednesday Hump-Day 224 Kiefaber Reflection" type blog, the addition of soundtracks to certain posts, Murphy's Law, Top Ten lists, and stuff like that.

Today, I will like to install the latest feature of my blog - "The Cowman Show" starring yours truly. This concept has been an idea/conspiracy theory that has been floating around in my head way before I even started this blog up. If you have seen The Truman Show with Jim Carey, then you will recall how the movie was about how he was the star of a reality TV show that the world tuned in to to watch what he was doing each and every day. The show started when he was born and carried on throughout his life. The kicker was that he did not know he was being filmed. Everything and everyone in his life was fake. He lived in a big fake world that was filled up with cameras recording everything that he did. Eventually, he discovered what was happening, flipped out, and escaped.

For The Cowman Show, I will depict certain moments in my life that occur on a seemingly regular basis where I stop myself and say, "You have got to be kidding me. Seriously? WTF! I swear to God I am living in a reality TV show and everyone is watching me and this crazy shit happens just so everyone at home can sit back and laugh and be thankful that they are not me." These moments are similar to being caught on candid camera, minus the guy jumping out at the end to laugh at the person in the awkward circumstance and tell them that they have just been zapped.

In the future, I will put together different "episodes" or reenactments of the random crap that happens to me in my reality TV show life as they come up. So consider this a trailer for the new show that will be coming up in the next few weeks. I have a few things in mind that have happened that I could write about, but I think I will just wing it when it happens. In case you are wondering, examples of episodes could be something like...

On today's episode of The Cowman Show, Kyle goes to Subway to grab a foot long cold cut trio that he has been thinking about since he woke up. Little does he know, the Subway he is about to walk into has a line a mile long, and when he finally get to order his sub, he will discover that they are fresh out of tomatoes and lettuce! Let's sit back and see how he reacts when the Subway Sandwich Artist breaks the news to him...

or...

We have an intriguing show for you tonight ladies and gentlemen. While Kyle was at work today, he spent over an hour on the phone with an 80 year old man as he tried to explain to the guy how to open up a website browser and go to www.google.com. The old man has never used a computer before, probably doesn't have an Internet connection anyways, and absolutely no clue what a website browser is all about or who this Google guy is. As a special feature, we have including a blood pressure meter at the bottom of your television screens so you can follow along at home and keep an eye on his vitals.
