Hello Everyone,

Wow, am I ever late this week! I have been busy getting a CD release (Beethoven's Diabelli Variations, Bill Kinderman, piano) ready for our new record label (www.ariettamusic.com) -- the deadline for the bulk of the material is tomorrow and it's already today and I've still got a lot to do... so, here's some news:

Criterion has a few new titles: Army of Shadows, Sweet Movie, and WR: Mysteries of the Organism. Also, finally on DVD -- the Sergio Leone's cult western "Duck, You Suckers". Lastly, from across the pond comes "Longford" -- the highly praised British docu-dram TV series. More below...

Illini 4000 update: Today they are in Girard, KS and have traveled just over 1600 miles -- about 2400 to go. If you've been a faithful reader of the Rentertainment updates you know all about this but, just in case: On May 25th, 20 riders from the Illini 4000 (www.illini4000.org) got on their bikes in New York City and started riding 4000 miles west. The goal? not to stop until they hit the ocean in San Diego on August 4th and to raise $100,000 for pediatric cancer research and Camp Kesem (a summer camp for children whose parents have been affected by cancer). Please visit their web site, read their blog, and donate a few dollars if you can. I joined them June 10th on their 85 mile ride from Chebanse to Urbana-Champaign. We hooked up with about 20 riders in Rantoul who helped us with our chants of I-L-L -- I-N-I as we rode in on Lincoln Avenue. The Alumni Association had prepared a nice homecoming celebration at the Alice Campbell Alumni Center where there were friends and family to greet the riders. After a rest day we escorted them out of town as they headed off towards Springfield and beyond. Now I am hoping to get to San Diego in August to ride the last leg with them. Fun for all and all for a good cause! I've added some information to the Renter site more can be found on the Illini 4000 site. Good luck and have a great ride!

Essential Art House Films Update: Last week's film was Vittorio De Sica's "Umberto D". This week's film will be Federico Fellini's "The White Sheik". In case you are interested, the latest review is always 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)
