    Freelance editor and blogger. I've been reading mystery and detective stories since I was a child. I read every Nancy Drew mystery I could get my hands on when I was young. Since taking Richard Edwards's "Summer of Darkness" course in the summer of 2015 and watching noir faithfully ever since, I think I can say that I am no longer new to film noir and neo-noir.

    What is this all about?

    Okay, I'm getting the same message today ("This community is not available"), but I can access the message boards if I go to tcm.com and then click on "Community." This won't help anybody today who can't access the message boards now, but maybe it will be an option in the future.

    In the first two Bridget Jones movies, Bridget Jones's Diary and Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason, Colin Firth and Hugh Grant talk about taking it outside and the ridiculousness of dueling in the modern era, then they take it outside and get into fisticuffs!

    "I couldn't access the message boards for almost 24 hours. I kept getting a message that read something like "This community is not available." Very odd. There was also something about contacting the site administrator." I mentioned this on another thread, but you have answered my questions about the issue, LawrenceA. Thanks.

    Reasons why jazz is better than movies.

    Wow, that's a small percentage, especially considering all the styles of jazz that are out there. I've always enjoyed jazz, and I am not a musician. I didn't realize I had so little company stateside.

    Noir Alley

    I have read some of the short story collections in the Akashic Books noir series. It's true that each one is a bit of a mixed bag, but still an interesting series. I enjoyed the first Boston Noir book. I like the maps showing the dead-body outlines in each neighborhood where a story in the collection is set. In any case, I usually go to film and print (not video games) for noir! 😀

    Must've been noir books I was thinking of (in addition to noir film based in Los Angeles). Here's a link to Akashic Books for anyone interested in books with a geographically noir focus: http://www.akashicbooks.com/subject/noir-series/
