Halloween isn't even over yet, but I have to prepare myself for what's happening in November ... NOIRVEMBER. You thought I was hiding in the shadows for the spooky month of October? Oh lordy, you ain't seen nothing yet. I'm ready to inject chiaroscuro-heavy cinematography right into my veins.

This month I will be pouring whisky excessively, I'll live constantly in black and white, and I'll live out my most fatalistic desires - however grim or depressing they may be.

Mitchum, Bogart, Widmark. Fret not, fellas, I'm back. Please, welcome me into your arms again. You reek of cigars, sweat, and whisky, but don't worry. If all goes according to plan, as will I.

No, I probably won't be able to watch all of these, but I will try! In fact, I'll work as hard as Humphrey Bogart's liver did - that should show you I'm serious.
