Hello Everyone,

High Definition comes to Rentertainment! We are usually early adopters but this latest round of HiDef wars just pissed me off so I chose not to participate. However, enough of you have bought HiDef players of one kind or another so I figure we'd better get into it. So, here's the plan: I'm going to buy about 50 HD-DVDS and 50 BluRay discs, put 'em out for rent, buy more as they come out and watch to see what happens. Our own little HiDef war! The HD-DVDs will be out by this Friday and the BluRays by next Friday -- look for 'em on the end cap where the Employee Picks usually reside (except for those weeks when Mr Ebert has elbowed his way in there). Let the battle begin!

Illini 4000 update: Today the Illini 4000 are in Blanding, UT and have traveled just over 2700 miles -- about 1300 to go. Check out their web page (www.illini4000.org) for updates and read the rider blogs for funny stories, pictures and tales of long mountain climbs (and seemingly shorter downhills on the other side). Jill and I are faithful readers of Allison's blog (Allison Across America) so I would suggest starting there. I don't know how much money they have raised but the goal is $100,000! Less than a month to go...

Essential Art House Films Update: Last week's film was acques Tati's "M. Hulot's Holiday". This week's film will be Kenji Mizoguchi's "Ugetsu". 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)
