New arrivals for the week of August 7, 2012
Blue Like Jazz
The Lorax
Marley
Warriors of the Rainbow

Greetings all,

It's my birthday week -- I'm turning 50! The first thing I'm going to do is join OLLI (Osher Lifelong Learning Institute) at the University... and then I'll go on the traditional "ride your age" bike ride. You can continue enjoying your final few "pre-school" weeks here on campus. Here's what turned up in this week's new release box: "Blue Like Jazz" (Based on The New York Times bestseller by Donald Miller; w/Marshall Allman and Tania Raymonde), "The Lorax" (with the voices of Danny DeVito, Zac Efron, Ed Helms, Betty White, etc), "Marley" (documentary on Bob Marley directed by Kevin Macdonald), and "Warriors of the Rainbow" (directed by Wei Te-Sheng). There are more new releases towards the end of August than there were in July and even more come September. Check out the complete list of new arrivals below.

Once again, Justin Bieber is sharing the Top 10 renters in the Music Section with the likes of the Beatles, Pink Floyd and Bob Dylan. It's probably more related to my age than anything else but that just seems weird to me. On the other hand, it's very nice to see my favorite band (The Band) not only in the top 10 but a few notches above Mr Bieber. So, without further ado, here they are... the Top 10 renters from our Music Section:
1 HARRISON, GEORGE: LIVING/MAT WORLD
2 BEATLES: YELLOW SUBMARINE
3 PINK FLOYD: THE WALL
4 BAND: THE LAST WALTZ
5 BEATLES: HARD DAY'S NIGHT
6 TALKING HEADS: STOP MAKING SENSE
7 TRAPPED IN THE CLOSET (R. KELLY)
8 BEATLES: LET IT BE
9 BIEBER, JUSTIN: NEVER SAY NEVER
10 DYLAN, BOB: DON'T LOOK BACK
(a longer version of this list and more "Top 100" lists can be found here)

Remember: Rentertainment is still in Summer Hours mode. We will be open Monday-Saturday from 11am to 10pm and Sundays from noon - 10pm... plan accordingly.

Have a great week...

Geoff (and all the other Rentertarians)
