New arrivals for the week of March 10, 2009


Greetings everyone,

"I hereby give Sita Sings the Blues to you..." (www.sitasingstheblues.com). So, according to Urbana native, Nina Paley, there it is. You can download it for free, copy it, watch it with friends, give it away, pretty much anything you want. And, if you are so inclined, you can even donate a few dollars to the cause. As far as we know, Sita will still be at Ebertfest this year (along with a celebrity appearance from Nina). Tickets go on sale April 6 and I promise you this one will sell out... grab your sleeping bag, a few good books and get in line now!

We got the last two available Kavanagh Q.C. titles this week. That's all there is, folks... until April 28th when three more titles come out -- pace yourselves. Also in this week, Mike Leigh's "Happy Go Lucky", Charlie Kaufman's "Synecdoche, New York", and Jonathan Demme's "Rachel Getting Married". And, for you music historians, "Cadillac Records" is the story of the great Chess Records -- home of Muddy Waters, Leonard Chess, Little Walter, Howlin' Wolf, Etta James and Chuck Berry. While on the subject of the blues, I just got word that Leah Mahan's documentary on Howard "Louie Bluie" Armstrong, "Sweet Old Song", will be available on DVD soon. You may remember this amazing film from the 2005 edition of Ebertfest. I'll let you know when it arrives.

My mother, Jill and I finally had dinner at the new Great Impasta (now located where Milo's used to be in Lincoln Square). Same great food but now in a much more intimate setting. Personally, I am very happy to see them down-size but even happier to see them in downtown Urbana. Recommended. This week I'm going to try to get to the Black Dog for some BBQ and beer... I hear it's amazing.

Have a great week...

Geoff (and all the other Rentertarians)
