New arrivals for the week of May 20, 2008

Ride of Silence

Hello Everyone,

Spring may finally be here! I generally set my calender by the weather but with this year's hot-cold-rain-snow weirdness I'm basing it on the start of the Urbana Farmer's Market. Have you been? I went on week one and came away with a load of goodies (worth special mention are the asparagus and goat cheese). When the Common Ground Food Co-op opens over there in a few months, Lincoln Square will be quite the happening place to be (with no disrespect to Milo's or Art Mart, Lincoln Square hasn't really been the place to be for quite a while now). In any case, see you at the Market -- I'll be the guy first in line at the Asparagus Man's stand (you know the one).

Hear ye! Hear ye! Hear ye! Last year we finally got Branagh's "Hamlett", earlier this year we got "She's Gotta Have It" and now we can knock another title off our "always on the lookout for" list: City Lights Home Entertainment has bought the DVD rights to "Kiss of the Spider Woman" -- look for a release with a bonus never before seen "making of" documentary by the end of the year. And, while we are knocking titles off that list, Criterion has announced the much anticipated release of "El Norte" on both DVD and BluRay (yes, Criterion will be making BluRay discs). Hey studios, where is "The Beatles: Let it Be" or "The Krays"?

On Wednesday, May 21st, hundreds of locations worldwide (including Urbana-Champaign) will be participating in The Ride of Silence -- "a silent slow-paced ride (max. 12 mph/20 kph) in honor of those who have been injured or killed while cycling on public roadways." Locally, the ride will begin at 7:00pm in the parking lot at the corner of First Street and St. Mary's in Champaign, IL. I will be there -- please join me. In other cycling news, The Illini 4000 for Cancer have left for New York (by both train and van) for their 4000 mile cross country trek. Check out their web site (www.illini4000.org) to read riders blogs, get for more information and/or to make a donation.

Have a great day...

Geoff (and all the other Rentertarians)
