Cool Shit 5/9

It's nice to know our government will turn the other cheek when it comes to our food safety. Much more so than Europe, it sounds.

Get bumped from a flight? Before you accept that voucher, did you know you could get cash for your inconvenience? Works for lost luggage as well!

Sigh. Rolling Stone put out a list of the best albums from the 90s. A terrible, incomplete list, that overlooks some great albums.

I've linked to a couple summer movie previews concerning the blockbusters, but here's a look at some of the "quieter" films to be released this summer.

Have you read Stephen King's Under the Dome? If not, I recommend it. While (predictably) the ending is rather abrupt and comes out of left field, the characters and richness of the world King creates is fantastic.

Anyway, I'm not the only one who thought it was good, as CBS has gone and developed it as a series (not sure if its a limited run or it will continue on - hopefully it has a finite ending). Here's the trailer. Looks decent, even with the tacky All Along the Watchtower cover that plays over it...

This "break up" filmed on a kiss cam montage at a minor league baseball game (where promotional stunts to get more attention are de rigueur) is obviously fake; however the Hall and Oates soundtrack compelled me to include it here.
