New arrivals for the week of June 9, 2009


Greetings everyone,

Iranian-born Canadian filmmaker Eileen Yaghoobian's "Died Young, Stayed Pretty" is a documentary about the underground rock music poster scene in North America. Some of the folks featured in the film are: Art Chantry (who was here last year for a weekend), Jay Ryan (who lived here for years while at the U of I), Andrew Bird, Brian Chippendale, and Print Mafia. If you are unfamiliar with the indie rock poster scene check out the film's web-page (www.diedyoungstayedpretty.com) or the best indie poster site on the web (www.gigposters.com) -- or, better yet, just check out the film. Also new this week: "Faubourg Treme: The Untold Story of Black New Orleans", Tony Palmer's "God Rot Turnbridge Wells: The Life of Georg Frederic Handel", "Monster Kid Home Movies" (a collection of monster/horror films made by kids), and a new version of "Tosca" (you saw a scene from this in the new James Bond film, "Quantum of Solace").

Have you been reading Renter's own Pat Brown's Smile Politely movie reviews (under the heading "From the Box")? He once described his entries as "a lot the Renter updates but more about film and less about cycling". Have a look at his latest postings here: www.smilepolitely.com/arts/category/from_the_box/

I haven't heard what next week's plan is for the welcoming of the Illini 4000 to town but I think my plan will be to ride out early in the morning to meet them en route, turn around, and ride back in with them. Hopefully I can join them as they leave for Chicago the next day as well. Today they are in Zanesville, OH on their way to Columbus. You can read the team's blogs and track their progress on the Illini 4000 web-site (www.illini4000.org). Also in cycling news, the Tour de France starts in less than a month -- on July 4th. Now that they've cleaned the drugs out of the peloton, it should be a very exciting race. To ensure that, this year they will be climbing Mont Ventoux on stage 20 -- the day before the finish. Yow!

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

Geoff (and all the other Rentertarians)
