Let It Not Bleed? - Marker Pad Test Review

We just got a new marker pad and on the front cover it states "No bleed through."
So we took it upon our self to put it to the test.
1. First we tried out some Permanent Markers.
Here are the front and back page of our first test:

2. In our second test we tried out two different brands of water based markers/pens.
As you can see some of the permanent markers from our first test did 'bleed
through' just a little bit and then none!
A few dots of permanent markers got on the back of test page two as well! 

What The Conclusion!
Based on our tests we would have to conclude that the water-based markers
and/or pens work best with this type of marker pad!

Lady Noir And Movies Two - Mixed Media & TV

To Noir Her.... Is To..... Love.... Her?
What The Whatever That Means!
* * * * * * *
Movies Called Noir!
A couple of movies that some of you reading this might find of interest:
1. He Ran All The Way - John Garfield & Shelley Winters
A paranoid hoodlum kills a policeman and then holds a family
hostage in their apartment. A man, his wife, daughter and young son.
What an ending they gave this one!
2. He Walked By Night - Richard Basehart & Jack Webb
A burglar kills a Los Angeles policeman and sets off a manhunt.
This one has quite a few scenes of 'noirage' and then some.
And check out what noir puppy dog does to get what he wants.
Someone wears out his shoes searching and searching.
Spoiler alert.....there is no spoiler alert! 
We saw both of these movies Friday night on The Works TV - Ye Editor
