Day 50

I've been thinking about some new reality show ideas, especially ones in the vein of Trick My Truck or Extreme Makeover: Home Edition or Flip That House and Pimp My Ride.

Ideas:

-Tune My Guitar-- The crew goes around to small clubs and coffee houses and fixes problems musicians may have with their guitar strings, especially since the musicians usually don't know that there's something amiss. Special holiday episode features the crew getting pointers from Sonic Youth, who--after displaying their collection of bizarre pawn-shop guitars--play a set of Christmas songs over the closing credits (all atonal variations).

-Extreme Makeover: College Edition-- The crew cleans some rooms up. Hijinks ensue.

-Plant My Garden-- The crew lends a hand to well-meaning but clueless folks who want are interested in growing their own vegetables. At the end of each episode, they recap the work that was done and see how the garden works in the (hopefully green) hands of their new tenders.

-Survivor: Suburbia-- The two tribes (Minivania and Tudoroshia) compete for control of their wonderfully isolated paradise, weeding competing members out with strip mall shopping cart races and bicycle route newspaper tosses. Jeff Probst hosts.

-Ruin My Fun-- The crew goes from house to house each week, telling children that Santa Clause is really their dad dressed up in a felt outfit, that they really can't be friends with Peter Pan, and that statehood quarters grandma has been saving for you will probably get lost in your attic when you're 14.

-Write My 'Blog Post-- What Jason is using now. Just kidding.
