This Year, Have a Beyonce-Themed VD!

Screengrab via globalgrind.com

Back in my day, the ultimate musical power couple was Marc Anthony and J-Lo; two performers, both with massive pop appeal, writing songs and kinda going on tour together, one gay, the other not very good. Sadly, their marriage had some differences and that arrangement has since gone the way of the dodo.

These days, that triumphant musical power couple is BY FAR Jay-Z and Beyonce. "Bonnie and Clyde" and "Drunk in Love" and making Blue Ivy and owning the Nets and then Robinson Cano and ethical Barney's clothing and dropping albums on us like a NINJABOMB and Brooklyn, son. That's the power of love. Shit...Forbes even says so because FORBES LIKES MONEY.

Valentine's Day Marketing Is Out Of Control

Image via Bustler.netYesterday, we profiled a Valentine's Day couples boxing workout, and now I've just heard that the Newtown Creek sewage treatment plant in Greenpoint is offering special Valentine's Day tours. In fact, they were initially offering two tours at 9:30 a.m. and 1 p.m., but quickly added another at 11 a.m. due to "overwhelming demand." I shit you not. According the tour host and superintendent, Jim Pynn:

The highlight of the tour is the Greenpoint Avenue plant’s giant egg-shaped digesters which break down the noxious waste into harmless sludge and gas.

The digester eggs are 130 feet tall and offer great views of the city from the top.

How romantic!

Your FiPS Guide to Finding a Last-Minute Valentine's Day Date

I hesitate to mention that it’s almost Valentine’s Day, because, I know for most FiPS readers, it’s painful to talk about it still, to this day.  But if you’re still obsessing over the precise moment that love died for you the last time, maybe it’s time for you to crawl out of that dirty bathtub you've been sleeping in, put some clothes on, and try to find someone new to date. You can do this, lame-ass!

Since you’re used to dating people with borderline personality disorders, we’ve gone ahead  and done some legwork for you by turning to the most obvious place that anyone would look for a suitable candidate for your next just-aborted-at-the-last-possible-moment-before-it's-too-late-murder-suicide pact: Craigslist!

A FiPS Guide To A Low Key Valentine's Day: For Couples 

 Photo via mugsandpugs.wordpress.com

For some couples, Valentine's Day means a fancy dinner, ties and dresses, sparkly gifts and sweet treats encased in heart-shaped boxes. For others, there's just one simple goal: to not leave the house. For those of us who'd prefer to share a mild evening with our significant otras free from restaurant crowds (they give me hives), here's your FiPS Guide to a low key V-Day.
