2012 Retreat to Goodisville NoirCon David Goodis Memorial Video

Here is a slideshow video I made from pictures at NoirCon's 2012 David Goodis Memorial, aka "Retreat to Goodisville." This year, we convened on January 7 in Philadelphia, PA. Unlike last year, however, it was freezing cold and the streets weren't covered in snow or ice. It looked strangely like spring... Anyway, we all still had a blast spending the day driving around the city in the NoirConMobile (aka a big bus filled with booze), listening to Lou Boxer, Duane Swierczynski, Ed Petit, and others talk about Philly's rich noir heritage, from Charles Brockdon Brown and Poe (thanks, Ed!) up to Goodis himself.

The song I'm using in the video is one of my own. "Adagio" by Modern Silent Cinema, from the album "Fresh Elk." I'm not sure why I called the album that, but I think it had something to do with an amazing Shepard's Pie I ate while visiting Maine...

If you didn't make it out to the 2012 Goodis Memorial, start making your plans now for next year's celebration. Saturday January 5, 2013!
