This past week I saw a new “word” floating all over the Internet — “Twerking,” which was trending all over social media since Miley Cyrus’ performance on the MTV VMAs. I will admit that I have not and will not be watching the video — to me this is qualified as TMI (Too Much Information). I did look up the word “Twerking,” out of curiosity. According to the Oxford Dictionary Online it’s a dance move that involves a person, usually a woman, shaking her hips in an up-and-down bouncing motion, causing the dancer to shake, “wobble” and “jiggle.” Wikipedia says to twerk is “to dance to popular music in a sexually provocative manner involving thrusting hip movements and a low, squatting stance.” After reading that explanation, I can guarantee my dance moves DO NOT contain “Twerking” and if they did, I’m quite sure I would pull a muscle!
I’ve seen it frequently. You know, the little tagline quotes in our email signature lines. This one is an old Irish proverb, “Work like you don’t need money. Love like you’ve never been hurt. And dance like no one’s watching.” Dance is not just a wonderful metaphor for life, but also for God. Many have described the relationship between God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit as a kind of cosmic dance. God’s very nature is relationship: loving, vital, dynamic, and life-giving. You can dance on your own, but it’s so much more fun when you dance with others.

There's a siege mentality about Michael Bay's movies, as though viewers are the enemy holed up in a bunker and he's the guy ordering heavy-metal music around-the-clock to wear down our morale and force us to surrender.
Moving forward in reviewing the district’s policy on sex education in its high schools, the Tempe Union High School District is looking for parents and residents to participate in a committee for instruction.
"Blood-drenched" barely begins to describe Fede Alvarez's remake of "Evil Dead," a gore-for-broke affair that strips the flesh off Sam Raimi's cult-beloved comic-horror franchise and exposes the demons at its core. The presence of Raimi, original collaborator Rob Tapert, and star Bruce Campbell as producers should give the faithful permission to attend what would otherwise smell like a shameless exploitation of the 1981 film, but the high production values and nonstop action offered here should also please younger genre fans who've never bothered to rent it.
Editor’s note: Follows is a one-on-one interview with Joshua Sasse, of the movie “The Big and I,” and Leah Gibson, from “The Twilight Saga: Eclipse.” Both are playing key roles in “Rogue,” DIRECTV’s first original series.
