Dance Videos from the Man Cave

*If the videos aren't showing, reload the page and they should show up then*

Hubs, BIL, and I are super-competitive. Super.

Okay, maybe it's just Hubs and I.

Neither one of us likes to lose.

If, by chance, someone dares to even come close to beating me in a trivia game: it is not pretty.

So, when we play Just Dance for Wii, we have rules.

We play through all 32 songs and keep a score sheet of our individual scores. Though you can all three dance at the same time, we choose to go one at a time. Random draw the first time, then every time after that, the person with the highest score on the previous song has to go first, while the lowest score gets to go last. We try to make it fair.

You get a point for each song where you had the highest score. We play the short version of each song.

After we cycle through all the songs, we each get to pick whatever song we want and dance to the long version of it. Whoever has the most points on that song, gets three additional points. Gotta keep it exciting.

I totally love that Hubs and BIL are willing to play this game with me.

Though, as my thanks, and because I've had many requests for this, I'm posting a short video of them playing. I'm sure they appreciate it. Good thing they don't read my blog.


This first video is only a minute long. It starts out with Hubs dancing to "Ring My Bell," but you have to listen to BIL's commentary on it, which is hilarious. Right after that is BIL shaking it to "Girls Just Want to Have Fun," followed by Hubs again with "Jin Go La Ba" or something like that. I totally kick ass on that song.

Note: our competition takes place in Hubs' man cave. It is his room to do with what he wants and I am in no way, shape, or form responsible for the condition of that room. We keep it locked so the kids can't go in there and get lost.



For your viewing pleasure:




Daffy promised me that she would laugh herself sick, even if no one else does.

What really would make you laugh yourselves sick is what I wish I could post: Hubs dancing to "I Like to Move It, Move It." He'd had enough rum at that point, he and BIL both think they are pirates, that he hiked his shorts all the way up and then made them into a thong and shook it. BIL and I were dying laughing. But, no one else needs to see my Hubs' ass. Not literally anyway.

He knew I was taping it and said, "Shell, what the hell are you doing?" and I replied, "It's for my own personal entertainment."

What I Meant to Say: I'm keeping this video forever as blackmail and if you ever really screw up, it will be on my blog and facebook, where I'll be sure to tag your ass for all to see.

What else I do have for you, though, are my little guys dancing to "Who Let the Dogs Out." The little guy in the purple singing at first is Bear, followed by Monkey. I don't know what happened to the sound when I moved the video upstairs for Cub and I to dance to "Wannabe." It's less than a minute.



Oh, in case you are wondering: I won the game with Hubs and BIL:
Shell: 12 songs + 3 bonus points
Hubs: 10 songs
BIL: 10 songs

My bonus song of choice was Spice Girls' "Wannabe" with a score of 19,673 and a max combo of 27.

If you've done better, please don't tell me. The competitor in me can't take it.

I'd be fine seeing your hubs ass. You know....as long as it's done tastefully. And from the sounds of it, the homemade thong is pretty classy. ;)

I need to get Josh one of those so his crap can stop spilling over into my crap that's on MY side of the room. (Seriously, our poor bedroom. We have too much CRAP.)

Yeah! We finally get to see hubs dancing! And I love watching the boys again. Reminds me of when my 17 year old was about their age. He loved to bounce up and down in front of the TV when I turned Cops on. It was hysterical to see him come running through my condo as soon as he heard "Bad boys, bad boys, whatcha gonna do..."
