Today I hand the reigns of andrewdearling.com over to Kevin who will take you on a magical journey of Shark Raps, Bubbly Dispositions and Thriller inspired Zombie Dances.
Take it away Kevin...
Given that the show was running in to its penultimate week, we were expecting the game to heat up. Over on Tigers, Shark Dan was dividing the camp over the killing of the pig: On Sharks, Liam was well... naked, but we always thought he was up to something more nefarious.
Geri's bubbly disposition probably made her the consummate new arrival for the point in which she came. We'd lost two new arrivals in a row, coupled with two of our own tribe and if we didn't win Geri we were out of the game.
Thankfully we all managed to gel with Gerri and the dance off for her Island Law was hilarious... after the boys (fabulously chorographed by HBIC Mark) were robbed of their title in the Male vs Female expo, we had a singles free style dance off which ended up with Andrew, Lois and myself in the final 3. They really do cut the best bits.
The previous week we'd brought our A-game to the Beach Party with a Thriller (kind of) inspired Zombie dance to welcome the Tigers to the Beach Party. Given Gerri's love of dance and how we as a tribe had an affinity for getting down, we attempted to top our previous performance with an American Cheerleading style routine consumnating in another suspect rap from yours truely... Why I kept subjecting myself to the routine embarassment is probably a duality of my lack of self respect and not wanting to let 'good' corn rows go to waste.
The rap isn't on iTunes yet, but here are the lyrics for anyone interested
G to the E to the R to the I
21, Italian, sexy and fly
You came to the Sharks and tought us to
Sing and dance, just like you
Now I rock this chain from day to day
and I rock this bench at the Beach Party (parté, as referenced in every movie made during the 90s)
We're the S to the H to the A-R-K's
All my Sharks lemme hear you say
Now we hope you liked our chant and our groove
'Cos we did it, just for you
played out by miscellaneous whooping
Check it out:
Andrew here again... Just want to include a small addendum to the Blog.
Part of the song was written by Dan... in his sleep. He had an uncanny ability to wake up with fully formed shark chants. The one in the clip went like this:
We are the Sharks,
we leave our marks,
on the flesh of the Tigers skin.
We're number one,
at having fun,
and thats why we're going to win.
