Hello Everyone,

Last week I start working my way through the "50 Essential Art House Films" box set (remember? one per week in alphabetical order with two weeks off) by watching "Alexander Nevsky". This week's film is Andrzej Wajda's "Ashes and Diamonds" (1958). If you hurry, you can get to Renter and grab our copy so you can (virtually) watch along with me. I'm writing one paragraph reviews as I go (you should, too, I'll post them on our web site) -- check out my write-ups here.

Also, we've added another half dozen or so operas to our ever expanding opera section (including a PAL copy of Bizet's Carmen). Check out the full selection and descriptions here.

Lastly, The Flat Top Grill is set to open (north of Green on 6th, where Kinko's used to be) next week sometime. If I understand the concept correctly, you gather all the stuff you want to cook (rice, noodles, vegitables, meat, etc), dump it in a wok, cook it and then sit down and eat it. Isn't that what we all pretty much do at home anyway? Hmmm, I think I'll stick with Murphy's.

Watch out -- classes start in one week...

Geoff (and all the other Rentertarians)
