New arrivals for the week of November 20, 2012
Bringing Up Bobby
Call the Midwife: Season One
The Expendables 2
Ken Burns: The Dust Bowl

Greetings all,

Happy Thanksgiving! New arrivals for this festive holiday weekend include "Bringing Up Bobby" (w/Milla Jovovich, Spencer List, Rory Cochrane, Bill Pullman and Marcia Cross), "Call the Midwife: Season One" (based on the best-selling memoirs of Jennifer Worth), "The Expendables 2" (w/Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren, Chuck Norris, etc) and "Ken Burns: Dust Bowl" (w/Patricia Clarkson, Peter Coyote and Carolyn McCormick). The music section got a huge boost with the addition of "Archers of Loaf: What Did You Expect" (Live At Cat's Cradle, 2011), "Led Zeppelin: Celebration Day" (from the 2007 re-union show), "Queen: Hungarian Rhapsody" (Live in Budapest, 1986), "Rolling Stones: Charlie is My Darling" (Ireland, 1965) and "Stray Cats: Live at Montreux" (1981). Also, over the next few days, Erin will be putting together a Bluegrass/Acoustic/Folk section. This week's new additions to that section are: "Appalachian Journey: Live" (Yo-Yo Ma, Edgar Meyer and Mark O'Connor) and "Goat Rodeo Sessions Live" (Yo-Yo Ma, Stuart Duncan, Edgar Meyer and Chris Thile). Check out the complete list of new arrivals below.

Fall break (that's going on right now!) hours will remain pretty much the same as our regular hours -- the only difference being we will be closed on Thanksgiving Day (that's the 22nd) and no films will be due then. So, stock up on Wednesday for that post-lunch bored of football but still want to watch TV marathon.

"El Bulli: Cooking in Progress" documents the process Spanish chef Ferran Adria employs while working with his team to create the menu for his restaurant. El Bulli, for the next season. Ever since its release date, El Bulli has been the #1 renter from the Cooking Section. Along with America's Test Kitchen, there's also nice mix of some of the top names in cooking these days: Anthony Bourdain, Gordon Ramsey, Jamie Oliver and Jacques Pepin. There are over 100 titles in the Cooking section, but here are the 11 Cooking films that rented this past year:
1 EL BULLI: COOKING IN PROGRESS
2 AMERICA'S TEST KITCHEN: SEASON 12
3 OLIVER, JAMIE: FOOD ESCAPES
4 BOURDAIN, ANTHONY: A COOK'S TOUR
5 F WORD: GORDON RAMSAY: SERIES 01
6 FEASTING ON ASPHALT: SEASON 1
7 GOURMET'S DIARY OF A FOODIE: S2
8 HELL'S KITCHEN: SEASON 05
9 OLIVER, JAMIE: OLIVER'S TWIST
10 PEPIN, JACQUES: ESSENTIAL
11 VEGANGAL.COM

Have a great week...
