    Sex Tape Movie Red Band Trailer

    "When Jay (Segel) and Annie (Diaz) first got together, their romantic connection was intense – but ten years and two kids later, the flame of their love needs a spark. To kick things up a notch, they decide – why not? – to make a video of themselves trying out every position in The Joy of Sex in one marathon three-hour session. It seems like a great idea – until they discover that their most private video is no longer private. With their reputations on the line, they know they're just one click away from being laid bare to the world... but as their race to reclaim their video leads to a night they'll never forget, they'll find that their video will expose even more than they bargained for."

    How Much It Costs to Propose at Every Major League Baseball
    Gear | Pic
    Today is Opening Day for the 2014 MLB season, the start of the 2014 season. That means it’s also the time of year for America’s second-favorite pastime: the scoreboard marriage proposal. Swimmingly reached out to all 30 MLB teams to find out the cost of putting a ring (World Series or otherwise) on it at each stadium.
    "Though all proceeds go to charity, exactly what’s offered in a proposal package varies tremendously from ballpark to ballpark — some teams even offer multiple price points. The Indians’ fireworks proposal could be the most romantic option, but the Phillies’ four-ticket package is a surprisingly good value. Of course, if you’re feeling thrifty, you could always tuck a ring in your pocket, wait for a pitching change, then pop the question the old-fashioned way. Here’s hoping that — either way — you don’t strike out."

    Dan Zak has created this excellent flowchart, for readers of the Washington Post to figure out which store best suits them.
    "A corridor scorched by the 1968 riots and seeded by the 2000 opening of what was then Fresh Fields (now Whole Foods Market) near 14th and P has reached full bloom several blocks north near 14th and U, where Trader Joe’s has sprouted as a bookend of privileged grocery goodness. Friday afternoon, four hours into its existence, Trader Joe’s bustled with suits and scenesters and the neighborhood curious, zipping past frozen pizzas whose crusts are made with “ancient grains,” chatting cheerfully with a lei-laden staff."
