twerking lessons

Act now!  Be the first to twerk on your block.
It's better than pole dancing, no equipment needed. 

you'll be exhausted after my twerk lesson


Seriously, if you have read any posts here before you probably know I would be as likely to offer twerking lessons as write reviews of the VMA show. MTV and I were never close. About the closest I ever came to MTV was its reference in a favorite song, “Money for Nothing” by Dire Straits. “I want my MTV!”

Actually I don’t want any MTV or cable programming anymore. Dropping cable TV was a good move. I get all I need from broadcast channels and the internet.

Slight tangent - Cheryl posted a funny “review” of the VMA show. Here’s a link.

Twerking - I first noticed that word show up on a suggested youtube video list. Beyonce can twerk well. Miley? I didn’t watch her twerking except for the few clips on the internet. Her twerk sure was tweeted. From the little I’ve seen and read, her tongue should have been tweeted off the stage. What’s with the dog tongue? Twerking does not require your tongue to exit the inside of your mouth.

Two small bits of news on twerking (a Lisleman’s newsdesk rehash of stuff found on the web





I never would have believed I would saying this back then.  But oh, I long for the days of a simple Macarena.  I want my, I want my, I want my Macarena.

OMGosh, that video is too funny!

lisleman said...

thanks I thought so too.

lisleman said...

Yeah you're right. Miley is mostly known by people with their heads stuck into smartphones. What do they know? thanks

Cheryl P. said...

Thank you, Lisleman for the mention. You're a good blogger friend. As for this sudden appearance of the word twerking and all it's butt bouncing proponents....I can't wait for all of it to stop. Weird trend to say the least. Luckily most of these kinds of things don't last long before the next stupid fad comes along to take it's place.

lisleman said...

Yes the fads just keep rolling along. Did you also get sick of the Macarena? I did but I also had fun a few times trying to dance to it. The world is lucky there was no video recording going on during my attempts. I read that the term twerking is more than a decade old. I must hang out in a different hood because I didn't hear it until this year. thanks

Wow - did I have trouble getting into the comment form! Silly droid, not digging the disquis, I guess. I didn't know what twerking was 'till this whole Miley thing. Now? I wish I didn't know.

lisleman said...

knowledge is almost always a good thing. Miley's dance style is an example of an exception to that rule. thank to leaving a comment. I had a bit trouble with Disqus earlier today???

The video is a scream. Miley's got nuthin on these broads.

No kidding!! I would take the Macarena over twerking any day...

lisleman said...

I guess it would be a little too late but with all those instructional video you share maybe you could do a Macarena instructional one.
thanks

lisleman said...

thanks - the 1st on the list - thanks again. There is a good reason this video went viral.

I'm a relatively spring chicken, and even I had to google "twerking" the next day. I have no cable, either, so I didn't see it live on MTV, but I sure heard all about it from the facebooks.

lisleman said...

I had accidentally stumbled onto it earlier in the year. I don't think it got used much until the Miley thing. Now her tongue filled picture will always be associated with it. I'm not sure but I think the word came from the club scene. Good to know another non-cable TV person. thanks
