The RC Alter-Ego

To follow from my last post, here is a re-post from nearly 5 years ago, describing another possible, although highly unlikely, form that my life could have taken.  I suspect that only one of my current readers has read this before.  Yes, Terri, this was 5 years ago!

As I settle in to regular cycling again, following a relatively lazy summer, my mind has started to wander again, as it tends to do during a good ride. Inspired by a few other blogs and comments, I have put more thought into who and what Rock Chef could be...

By day, he is a celebrity chef, hosting a regular TV show called, amazingly, The Rock Chef. Each show features a guest from the world of rock music, and consists of a mix of great food, fun, and rock music. Episodes include:

  • Blaze of Glory, featuring Jon Bon Jovi and how to barbeque.
  • Trampled Underfoot, featuring Led Zeppelin and traditional wine making methods.
  • Let there be Wok, featuring AC/DC and oriental stir-frying.
  • Jump, featuring David Lee Roth and the food of love (or whatever).
In true TV fashion, the climax of the show is putting together the finished meal for the guests to eat, with a ticking clock and a chorus of The Final Countdown...
Note that special care is taken to keep those who have lived the rock and roll lifestyle to the full, e.g. Ozzy Osbourne, away from naked flames and sharp knives.
Naturally, the Chef's rugged good looks, charming personality and awesome musicianship combine to make the show compulsory viewing for millions around the world.
By night, Rock Chef is a crime fighting superhero, chasing villains on his customised Domino's Pizza delivery bike, and overpowering them with his special form of martial arts, using sharpened spatulas. The Rock Chef denies any connection with a recent spate of drug dealers who have choked to death on Domino's Pizza. This is just a fortunate coincidence

"highly unlikely"? Don't be so hasty. It could happen!

Riot Kitty said...

That would be awesome. I'd totally watch your show ;)

I would totally add your show to my must see TV. It would rank right up there with Cupcake Wars and Diners, Drive-ins and Dives. You oughta consider adding your moonlighting job to the reality show world as well....

Seems like something that could really happen... right up until the crime-fighting Dominoe's Pizza delivery guy part!

Hard to believe we've been blogging so long, isn't it? I'm glad we've stuck together throughout our blogging "careers!"

Rock Chef said...

Abby - It could?

Riot Kitty - Thanks!

ShadowRun300 - Hm, the crime fighting side of things could be a bit like Dog the Bounty Hunter!

Terri - What is so unbelievable about a crimefighting pizza guy? And yes, I am glad we hvae stuck together too - so many of the old hands have dropped out over the years, such a shame.

Interesting concept. Its way better than any of the recent reality programs we've been subjected to of late. It would be fun to follow your weekly show/antics. Rock the Pizza Man (Delivers Justice - in 30 minutes or less!). The question to ask is: Mask or No Mask?
