Hi Everyone!

Winter weather's on the way just in time for Thanksgiving.  Be sure to stock up on some library DVDs in case you're snowed in! Here are a few of my picks for November:

Fat Kid Rules the World

A story for everybody who has ever needed to find their inner rock star. Set against the backdrop of the Seattle music scene it is a coming-of-age story about two dysfunctional teenagers searching for something more out of their completely hopeless existence. Troy Billings is fat. His life sucks. He's about to end it all by jumping in front of a bus, when Marcus Macrae, a charismatic punk rock superstar, tackles him to the ground and changes his life forever.

Obvious Child


Donna Stern is a Brooklyn comedian who gets heartlessly dumped by her two-timing boyfriend. While trying to drown her troubles at the stand-up comedy club, she has a drunken one night stand with a cute young professional named Max (who's not even remotely her type) and ends up pregnant. Donna has to do what is expected of a 'responsible adult' just in time for the best/worst Valentine's Day of her life.
