The Meg is Closer to ‘Jaws’ Than ‘Sharknado’

MOVIE REVIEW When Steven Spielberg’s Jaws opened in theaters in 1975, it took the world by storm. Not only was the movie hugely popular as it was genuinely scary, it actually affected society in a strange way. Audiences began to have an irrational fear of sharks even when swimming at a lake. When Jaws 2 came to theaters three years later, everyone knew the catchphrase, “Just when you thought it was safe to go back into the water…” Since then, it’s been hard for movie studios to be able to drum up the same excitement with their own Jaws knock-offs. Shark movies became a joke. Even Jaws 3 and Jaws: The Revenge were met with disdain (and with good reason). But sharks are still a popular subject, just not one that we take very seriously anymore.
This brings us to next big shark movie, The Meg which judging from the trailers alone, looks like another campy knock-off movie and while it indeed is campy, it isn’t as much as you would think. When comparing movies, The Meg is closer to Jaws tha…

Oh ‘Baby’ – Amy Does it Again: Music Review

Music Review of Amy Grant's "In Motion: The Remixes."
Amy Grant's "In Motion: The Remixes  will be released
on August 19, 2014 Sparrow Records
It’s pretty cool when your teenager comes into the room and asks what you’re listening to. He heard the new tweaks to Amy Grant’s dance mix of “Baby, Baby” and said that it was pretty strange to see his dad listening to the same music that he listens to. I think I blew him away when I told him that I had listened to Amy Grant since I was his age.

We’re not the only ones listening either. This week it was announced that the re-mixed single (the original came out in 1991) had broken into the Top Ten and making it the #8 spot of the Billboard Hot Dance Club Play chart.

In Motion: The Remixes releases next week (August 19) and includes the hit which DJ and remixer Dave Audé had put a new spin. "Remixing 'Baby, Baby' has definitely been one of the highlights of my career," Audé said. "I loved this song when it was released in 1991, and I still love hearing it today; you can't say that about many records 23 years later. 'Baby, Baby' has crossed genres, and I'm hoping my remix will add yet another genre to this timeless classic."


“Baby, Baby” is clearly the best song on the album and is most suitable to be turned into a dance mix, but the others are a lot of fun too. The album has the potential of reaching two different generations of listeners – Grant’s faithful following and the younger dance crowd. The album features nine of her most popular songs, plus two bonus songs, all remixed by different DJs.
