Mission: IndiePossible Live Watch Party

Journey with us on a tale of 3 adventures! First, THE COWBOY.
 
He shuffles down the hallway towards the front door. On the other side, a world ready to reject him. They say cowboys are old news. Society has moved on. Culture has taken over and he is a relic.
 
Nevertheless, he moves forward. His back aches as he bends down to put on his shoes. No, not shoes. Boots. Cowboy boots. Worn and weary, just like him, he thinks. The pain that most associate with old age is a bit stiffer for him, because his pain isn't just brought on by mother nature, but from the countless brawls and fisticuffs that he has waged war in. He hurts. Still, he would do it all again.
 
Boots on, he opens the door. Sunlight blinds him, as if to say, "GO BACK TO THE PAST, COWBOY." Even the sun rejects him. No matter. The rays of light are blocked out as he adjusts his Stetson hat. Another victory. Feeling a sense of pride, his shuffle gains some pep as he makes his way out. The way people treat him, you'd expect him to be at a hitching post, untying a mule. No, he has a car. Just because he's a cowboy doesn't mean he's a fool.
 
He drives. It is quiet. Lonely. Hot. He cares little for the vanities of life-air conditioning, radio broadcasts? Frills. Frills that weaken us. Sweat beads down his cheek as he approaches a stoplight. A car pulls up next to him, the horn honking.
 
Teenagers. Mocking his hat. "HEY BUCKAROO!", they yell, laughing. Middle fingers are raised and they spit towards him. He chuckles. Not because they are funny, but because he knows that if he felt like teaching them a lesson, they'd understand. But he is sore. He is aged. He is worn. There are only a handful of lessons left to teach, and this one is more important.
 
He looks to his knuckles. Even forming a fist now causes some pain. But that fist has administered justice more times than one can count....and it needed to do it again.
 
Yes, the cowboy is old. His time has passed. But tonight, he will muster the strength to teach one more lesson. To teach one 1980's yuppie that technology and wealth aren't the only things that matter. Respect is timeless, pride is ageless. Even cowboys know that. He'll show him. And he'll show him good.
 
He's going to make that yuppie wear a diaper.
 
ALSO WE WATCH A VADER MATCH AND IO SHIRAI VS. MEIKO SATOMURA!
 
It's the Live Watch!
