Fiction DVDs Ordered (week of 7/14/14)

I’ve heard your cries for Arrested Development Season 4.

Just sent in a new cart of DVDs this week.  It’s mostly TV, and quite a bit of it is just reordering things that we had but now don’t have for one reason or another.  What reasons are those you ask?  Well, I don’t know exactly, but if I had to guess:

  • Someone didn’t have a soft cloth  to clean the disk with, so they just used sandpaper instead.
  • Someone thought they were more important than everyone else that uses the library and decided not to bring back the movie.
  • Someone accidentally stored their DVDs in the cabinet marked “Narnia”.
  • Someone was running late for ultimate frisbee practice and just grabbed the first disc-shaped thing they could find.
  • Someone gave the disc to their baby/dog/rabid wolverine.
  • I discarded a movie because it had never checked out, and then instantly became the most popular movie in the world.

Here’s hoping none of these titles suffer any of those fates:

  • 2 Broke Girls (Season 3)
  • 3 Days to Kill
  • Angel (Season 2)
  • Arrested Development (Season 4)
  • Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me
  • Big Love (Seasons 1, 2, and 5)

  • How Stella Got Her Groove Back

  • It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia (Season 8)
  • Longmire (Season 2)
  • The Men Who Stare at Goats
  • Midsomer Murders (Sets 22, 23, and 24)
  • NCIS (Season 11)
  • Once Upon a Time (Season 3)
  • Paranormal Activity
  • Sanctuary (Season 2)

Today’s Burger Special

I love Bob’s Burgers.  The kids’ humor is  just dark and twisted enough to give the show an edge without being too much, and there’s plenty of life lessons and weird family bonding to be had at the same time.

For example:

We’ve got a couple copies of each of the first two seasons, and I’ll be sure to add more as time goes on.  Look for it next time you’re in.

June is all about documentaries!

DocumentariesWhether or not you go to school, summer has a special way of turning off brains or at least setting them to “float in the pool” mode.  Fight the summer brain drain with a documentary on nearly any topic you can imagine.  Grab one that interests you, or pick up one in a totally unknown topic to expand your knowledge.

We’ll have a display near the DVD section until the end of June, so browse through it and find something entertaining and educational to add to your stack.  If nothing on the cart jumps out at you, anything on the back wall of the DVD section is non-fiction, so you can find an even larger selection there.

Computer skills videos

Computer KeyboardWhile I put together a larger order for fiction DVDs, I took the time to update our collection of computer skills videos.  Earlier in the year I noticed that they were severely outdated and of no use to anyone, so I discarded them to make room for a future order to replace them.  This is that order.

With Paducah facing layoffs from USEC, quite a few of our fellow citizens will be looking to brush up on skills that will make them more competitive in the job market.  Videos like these, as well as the awesome books in our non-fiction section, will be very helpful in learning or refreshing those skills.

Here is the list of videos in this collection:

  • Microsoft Office 2013 (All programs, bundled)
  • Microsoft Office 2011 for Mac
  • Microsoft Word 2010 and 2013
  • Microsoft Powerpoint 2010 and 2013
  • Microsoft Outlook 2010 and 2013
  • Microsoft Excel 2010 and 2013
  • Microsoft Excel for Business
  • Microsoft Access 2010 and 2013
  • Windows 7
  • Windows 8
  • The Non-Programmer’s Guide to Building iOS apps
  • Learning to Build iOS apps
  • CompTIA A+ 220-801 (2012 Objectives)
  • Learning Ubuntu Linux
  • Learning Adobe Acrobat 11
  • How to use WordPress for e-Commerce

Fiction DVDs Ordered (week of 3/24/14)

dvdblog-newtitlesbanner

Not many big-name movies in this batch.  Mostly these are reorders and older classics that have been suggested for us to order.  Almost all suggestions get ordered, since we’re in the business of providing access to content, rather than censoring what we put on the shelves.  Most of the time, things don’t get ordered because they are nearly impossible to find, very expensive, or some combination of the two.  Very occasionally there are movies that are just so poorly reviewed or that will only appeal to such a small audience that they lose out to more popular titles (gotta spend those tax dollars wisely).

On to the list:

  • 300: Rise of An Empire

  • The Aviator
  • Bones, Season 8
  • Bride of Chucky
  • The Bucket List
  • Chicago Fire, Season 1
  • Chuck, Season 4
  • Dirty Dozen
  • Doctor Who: The Three Doctors
  • Fading of the Cries
  • The Grand Budapest Hotel

  • Grey’s Anatomy, Season 7
  • Psycho (1998)
  • PT-109
  • The Rainmaker
  • Righteous Kill
  • Seed of Chucky
  • Somewhere in Time
  • South Park, Season 3
