In 1996, Rolling Stone writer David Lipsky accompanied David Wallace Foster on his book tour in support of the just published Infinite Jest. Over that time, Lipsky’s interview for Rolling Stone turned into a real, ongoing conversation.
The interview was never published and the tapes went into storage until, following Foster’s suicide in 2008, Lipsky dug them out and wrote a book about the experience.
The End of the Tour is a film based on that book and those tapes. It stars Jesse Eisenberg as Lipsky and Jason Segal as Foster. The first trailer for the film is wonderful. check it out after the jump. The End of the Tour rolls into theaters on July 31st.
Annie writes a ‘mommy blog’ and her latest entry is bemoaning the lack of opportunities to have sex with her husband and recalling the way they screwed like bunnies when they were first together.

Tom Solomon and Violet Barnes may be perfect for each other. They get each other so well that he knows the perfect engagement ring for her [not the expected big honkin’ diamond…] and she understands his sense of humor. Unfortunately, once they get engaged – and despite their best, most enthusiastic efforts, nothing seems to go right.

You’ve been amazed by the teasers; amused by the parodies… Now, it’s time to get things started with the newest [and quite possibly final] trailer for this Thanksgiving’s epic adventure, Walt Disney Studios/Muppets Studio’s The Muppets [in glorious, full-color 2-D!] in theaters November 23rd.
Thanks to the heights reached by Judd Apatow’s comedy factory, the old standards no longer apply. To be a great – even good – R-rated comedy, such a movie has to have a balance between crudity and heart. Too much of one or the other and it just doesn’t work. Jake Kasdan’s Bad Teacher actually goes in a direction that’s completely unexpected: there’s neither enough heart nor enough crudity.
