Rebel Wilson shines, confuses and titillates while hosting last night's 2013 MTV Movie Awards as tax-paying procrastinators struggled to submit their returns on a temporarily floundering TurboTax online. In gun control news, a sadly ironic turn of events took place at the first 500 Sprint Cup race sponsored by the NRA as a NASCAR fan shot himself in the head after an apparent argument with a fellow racing fan.  Other trends this morning involve the first grandchild for George W. and Laura Bush, the strains of running the Boston Marathon and the release of the first full trailer for the second "Hunger Games" movie, "Catching Fire.

If an everyday pilsner is a family sedan, then Imperial Pilsner is a turbo-charged sports car. "It is not a beer for beginners," says Jim Koch, brewer and founder of the Boston Beer Co., which brews Samuel Adams beer. Rather, he says, "it is a treat for beer connoisseurs." Samuel Adams Hallertau Boston Beer Co.$10 for four 12-ounce bottles The label promises an intense hop experience, and this copper-colored brew delivers just that. The bitterness initially took my breath away. Something to sip while nibbling a big blue cheese.

When the Detroit Turbos finished in the cellar in the Major Indoor Lacrosse League last season, they never dreamed they would return to health so quickly.The league, in its wisdom, gave the Turbos not one No. 1 draft choice, but two. OK, Detroit, now that you've chosen Gary Gait, you can have his twin brother Paul, too. With the same pick; two for the price of one.Predictably, the Gaits are doing for the Turbos what they did for Syracuse. The Orangemen captured three straight NCAA championships under their leadership, and now the Turbos have gone from last to first.

BOSTON - First came the welcoming remarks. Then a little rock 'n' roll music, more speeches and applause - lots of applause. And by the time nine female senators took to the stage in the Fleet Center last night, the crowd was revved up, and the Democratic National Convention was in full swing. Led by Barbara A. Mikulski of Maryland, the senators launched a 15-minute salute to former Presidents Jimmy Carter and Bill Clinton and former vice president Al Gore. Their mission: to use their personal stories to remind viewers of the party's historical highs and to link that history to John Kerry, especially for female voters.

Antonius Kusuma isn't a novice with computers. He maintains them for a living for the brokerage giant Merrill Lynch & Co. Inc. So when he popped the tax-preparation software TurboTax into his computer at his Bordentown, N.J., home recently, he expected to complete his federal 2002 return without a problem. Three hours later, he abandoned the effort in exasperation -- and his choice words didn't even include the letters "IRS." "I was not able to activate my TurboTax even though it was the first time I installed it," Kusuma, 37, wrote in a complaint he posted to amazon.

So you think you have it bad this tax season? Don't cry on this shoulder, pal. I've had to do my returns three times this year, but such is the life of a software reviewer: Sometimes you play games, sometimes you do your taxes. Again, and again, and again. That's because this year the two heavyweights of personal tax software -- Intuit's TurboTax and Block Financial Corp.'s TaxCut -- finally have some competition. To round out its personal finance titles, Microsoft has launched TaxSaver, a surprisingly robust first effort from a company that usually doesn't get things right until Version 3.0. (Macintosh users still have only Intuit's MacInTax or Block Financial's TaxCut for Mac.)
