New arrivals for the week of August 24, 2010
Back-Up Plan
City Island
Square

Greetings everyone,

We seemed to have gone from 0-60 in under five seconds... move-in day blew by, Quad Day happened, classes started, and here we are today full into a new semester. The summer new-release slow-down hasn't zipped by quite as quickly, though. This week's biggest titles are: "The Back-Up Plan" (w/Jennifer Lopez and Alex O'Loughlin), "City Island" (w/Andy Garcia and Julianna Margulies), and "The Square" (w/David Roberts and Claire van der Boom). Also out this week: "Dexter: Season 4", "Lost: Season 6", and "The Simpsons Season 13".

Construction on campus seems to be in full swing. The Lincoln Hall renovations have all but made it impossible to travel by bike in either direction on Wright street forcing riders onto the quad. It shouldn't be long before we see an accident there. The University YMCA's project (including the elevator addition) seems to be moving along swiftly. Casablanca (the kebab place on Green street) seems to have stalled once the tables and chairs were put in -- as did the yogurt shop on 6th street. Yesterday I heard a rumor about a ramen stand opening on campus -- anyone know more about that? I'm picturing Tampopo...

This week's top renter list is "Top 10 Classic Musicals":
1) MEET ME IN ST. LOUIS
2) SOUND OF MUSIC, THE
3) SINGIN' IN THE RAIN
4) GENTLEMEN PREFER BLONDES
5) SOUTH PACIFIC (1958)
6) WEST SIDE STORY
7) WHITE CHRISTMAS (1954)
8) GUYS AND DOLLS
9) WIZARD OF OZ (70TH ANNIVERSARY ED)
10) BYE BYE BIRDIE
(a longer version of this list and more "Top 100" lists can be found here)

Have a great week...

Geoff (and all the other Rentertarians)
