Help make 'The Parlor Reality Show' a reality

How many times have you been at home watching some bogus reality show, thinking to yourself (or maybe someone else), "Man, I know way more interesting, crazy, photogenic people than these fools!"

Well here's your chance to help local filmmaker Reed Thompson make reality TV better by bringing the crew from Rose City's The Parlor tattoo shop to the tube. Thompson has a Kickstarter going right now that's seeking $5,000 to create a pilot to pitch to cable networks. "The Parlor Reality Show" will document the lives and times and work of Scott Diffee, Alina Bennett and Jeremiah Morris, of "The biggest little tattoo shop in Arkansas."

The campaign's deadline is Aug. 22, and as of Tuesday afternoon, is at $1,156.

Here's hoping this show gets funded and picked up, and the world will know that there's more to Arkansas-based reality shows than "The Simple Life," "19 Kids and Counting," "Eden's World," "Last Shot with Judge Gunn," "Cheer Perfection" and "American Stuffers" (although that last one actually looks kinda cool).

After the jump, check out a short dry-run episode of the show.
