Some people have sky diving on their bucket list. Or visiting the pyramids. But for a local guy, these ideas were just too easy.
Instead, Matt Bray of Naperville is giving to charity, learning “how to solve a Rubik’s cube” and singing like the Blues Brothers in front of a crowd.
It’s all part of Bray’s “Project One Life.”
His latest: 100 Days of Dance, has gotten a lot of Internet attention recently – and for good reason. The nod to Napoleon Dynamite, the awkward dance and the brilliant editing has all the makings of a viral video.
Bucket List #117: Complete 100 days of dance
Technically it was around 120 something days but 100 days sounds better. I had a GoPro camera set up on my cabinet and i just recorded myself doing the same dance routine every day. I wanted to do something along the lines of take a picture of myself everyday for a year but different. I eventually came up with the idea of 100 days of dance, I really didnt want to do this for a year so i thought 100 days seemed pretty good. The reason this was on the bucket list was because i thought it was a really cool, unique idea that i came up with and i wanted to make sure i saw it through, so i popped it on the bucket list to guarantee that i would complete it. Overall it was pretty fun dancing everyday and this was one of my more unique ideas and i’m pretty glad how it turned out.

Bucket List #102 Sing in front of a crowd
Me and Mike dressed up as the Blues Brothers than went to a karaoke night a put on the performance of our lives. We worked pretty hard mastering the routine over a few weeks and i was super happy and proud of how well the performance went. Before out performance, I was actually like legit afraid of singing in front of people before this, but going through this whole process has definitively changed that.
