New arrivals for the week of June 2, 2009


Greetings everyone,

This week's bounty includes three new Kavanagh titles, two by Derek Jarman (Caravaggio and Wittgenstein), and the 8th volume of the always excellent Wholphin series (released by McSweeney's -- the folks who bring you The Believer magazine). Jenn has been spouting on and on about how great "Wendy and Lucy" is while I've squandered my time watching re-released films on BluRay (The Rock, Spy Games, etc). Last night, however, I took one for the team and watched "Ramen Girl". I can wholeheartedly recommend you watch Tampopo instead. Next week the 40th Anniversary Ultimate Collector's Edition of Woodstock comes out -- be sure to block out a day or two to work your way through all the extras.

Summertime Super Value Deal #1 -- Buy a Renter-Block and get a free That's Rentertainment "Kino" shirt (just like the ones your favorite Renter employees wear). If you aren't hip to how cool and thrifty Renter Blocks are you can read all about 'em on our web-site. So, buy a block already -- all the cool kids are doing it.

I got an e-mail from Kristin 4000 yesterday -- she reports the Illini 4000 (www.illini4000.org) are doing well (despite some derailleur problems). They have made it through NYC, New Jersey, Delaware, Pennsylvania, and have just left Baltimore, MD for Washington, DC. Along with riding a lot of miles they've managed some site seeing and got a $500 donation from a donut shop. So far they have raised $52,239.33 towards their goal of $80,000. They'll be passing through Urbana-Champaign on June 16th -- I should have details on a local reception at the Alumni Center and a "Ride with the Illini 4000 Team" opportunity next week sometime.

That's it for now. Have a great week...

Geoff (and all the other Rentertarians)
