It's Noirsville, a visually oriented blog celebrating the vast and varied sources of inspiration, all of the resulting output, and all of the creative reflections back, of a particular style/tool of film making used in certain film/plot sequences or for a films entirety that conveyed claustrophobia, alienation, obsession, and events spiraling out of control, that came to fruition in the roughly the period of the last two and a half decades of B&W film.

She's a railroad lady Just a little bit shady Spending her days on a train She's the semi good looker But the fast rails they took her Now she's trying just trying To get home again
South station in Boston To the stockyards of Austin From the Florida sunshine To the New Orleans rain Now that the rail packs Have taken the best tracks She's trying just trying To get back home again
She's a railroad lady Just a little bit shady Spending her days on a train Once a pullin' car traveler Now a brakemen won't have her She's trying just trying To get home again
Once a high-balling loner Thought he could own her And he bought her a fur coat And a big diamond ring But she hung in for cold cash Left down on the Wabash Never thinking never thinking Of home way back then
But the rails are now rusty And the dining car's dusty The gold plated watches Are taking their gold The railroads're dying And the lady is crying On a bus to Kentucky And home that's her goal She's a railroad lady... On a bus to Kentucky and home once again
