Hello Everyone,

I keep finding notes on my account saying things like "Customer requested 'First Wives Club'" or "Customer requested 'Troop Beverly Hills'" -- c'mon, you and I both know that no customer requested either of those and the proof will be the next time you come in and they are being watched in the store by the actual employee who requested them but didn't want to fess up to the act. Someone even tried to tell me once that a customer had requested Arnold Schwarzenegger's "Junior" -- good one!

Is everyone feeling the excitement in the air that is Ebertfest? We have a lot of fun knocking it but in real life it's a great thing and I really do look forward to it every year. This year I am most looking forward to seeing "La Dolce Vita" on the big giant screen and seeing the re-united Strawberry Alarm Clock perform after "Beyond the Valley of the Dolls" (maybe I'll even bring my BVD movie poster in to Renter for all to see). Having Alan Rickman wander around town should be pretty cool, too. However, it seems the best thing every year is usually something I wasn't even expecting -- like 2005's "Me and You and Everyone We Know" and the Q&A with Miranda July. Wow!

Essential Art House Films Update: Last week's film was David Lean's "Brief Encounter". This week's film will be Jean Cocteau's "Beauty and the Beast" -- another one of my all time favorites. In case you are interested, the latest review is on Renter's front page with a link to the rest of the reviews below it.

Have a great week!

Geoff (and all the other Rentertarians)
