New arrivals for the week of June 29, 2010
All About Prints
Art & Copy
Freedom on the Fence

Greetings everyone,

The Beef Stand opened up two weeks ago, Einstein Bagel opened yesterday, and the new kabob place should be open in a week or so -- new places to eat abound! Likewise with new movies on the shelves at Renter. This week's bigger titles include: "The Crazies" (w/Timothy Olyphant and Radha Mitchell), "Hot Tub Time Machine" (w/John Cusack, Rob Corddry, and Lizzy Caplan), and "Percy Jackson & the Olympians" (w/Logan Lerman, Brandon T. Jackson, and Alexandra Daddario). Last weekend I skipped all those and watched three advertising/graphic design documentaries instead: Freedom on the Fence (about post-WWII Polish posters), Art & Copy (PBS documentary exploring the most successful and influential advertising campaigns of the 20th century) and All About Prints (500 Years of Prints and Printmaking) -- all very worthwhile.

This past week we hung this year's installment of John Havlik and Paul Young's Parkland College Graphic Design Class poster project. They have once again done some amazing looking work. There are 12 posters in all -- be sure to have a look next time you are in the store.

The 4th of July is this Sunday. We'll be open at noon but will close a bit early (8:00 instead of 10:00) so everyone can get home and watch the fireworks on TV. Monday we'll be back to our normal summer hours. Plan accordingly.

This week's top renter list is "Top 10 American Independent Films":
1) GOODBYE SOLO (DVD)
2) VISIONEERS (DVD)
3) DONNIE DARKO (DVD)
4) ROOM, THE (DVD)
5) PRIMER (DVD)
6) WENDY AND LUCY (DVD)
7) BRIEF INTERVIEWS WITH HIDEOUS MEN (DVD)
8) FROZEN RIVER (DVD)
9) PAPER HEART (DVD)
10) TRUCKER (DVD)
(a longer "Top 100 American Independent Films" list can be found here)

Have a great week...

Geoff (and all the other Rentertarians)
