Yup, tech support jobs are scarce right now, but high tech is rebounding. It won't be long until things are better. Things are SHIFTING, but they're better. Hang in. You have a lot more capability than you know. Go back to your resume, and look at the extra-curricular things you've done. Add in the skills. I bet you're underrating yourself. You're a hot commodity, mister. All you have to do is sell that idea to the employers who ARE out there, hiring. Have you looked at the What Color is Your Parachute books? If not, check it out. Good stuff.
Donald O'Connor and Francis... HAHAHAHAHHAAHA... I don't really hear that many references to them! It's a shame he is no longer with us. I have to admit that I had a bit of a crush on Donald O'Connor (in his movies and younger days) for a little while way back when I was in high school!
Cary Grant was the coolest, pretty much with any female lead. What was that movie? His Girl Friday, with Jane Russell, I think. Or I was a Male War Bride (Ann Sheridan?) He had a snappy way of delivering his lines that was comedic and romantic all at the same time. Ahhh!
Olivier and his first wife? Michael Redgrave and several people? Alec Guinness and almost anybody? Michael Redgrave and Joan Greenwood? Bogie and Hepburn? Greg Peck and Audrey Hepburn? Bogie and Audrey Hepburn? Orson Welles and Joseph Cotten? Angela Lansbury and the Frenchman in Gaslight? Gable and what's her name in "It happened One Night"? This list will never end.
Charles Laughton/Elsa Lanchester, Cooper/Stanwick, Dana Andrews/Vincent Price, Peter Cushing/Christopher Lee, but the best of all time is Deborah Kerr/Burt Lancaster. But others are Ed G. Robinson/Stanwick/McMurray, John Sayles/Chris Cooper, Sydney Greenstreet/Peter Lorre.
But in dancing movies it was Rita Hayworth and Fred Astaire.
Oh yeah. Angela Lansbury, in my opinion, has been greatly underrated. A very versatile actress. She played that conniving minx role in Gaslight, but a perfectly believable innocent ingenue in The Portrait of Dorian Gray. And many, many amazing roles since.
I just figured I'd mention Ingrid Bergman since, technically speaking, she was the female lead in Gaslight. The passive, emotionally abused wife role she played in it didn't much appeal to me, either.
But Bergman was d*** good in Casablanca with Henried and Claude Raines and peter Lorre. What a show. Bogie seems like the greatest guy in the world. There are some people like that I'd like to meet. Him and Audrey Hepburn and Jimmy Cagney and Dana Andrews and Robert Mitchum. Those guys could tell some stories. I guess I do know some people like that, though.
Okay, so you probably know this, and I can't remember, will35.
What was the name of the Ingrid Bergman movie were she's the daughter of a Nazi, and Cary Grant recruits her to go to Brazil and marry/spy on Claude Rains to get information about Nazi war criminals' activities? Suspicion? That's not it. Do you remember?
There were so many of those one word-titled movies. Suspicion, Spellbound. (That's the one where Gregory Peck has amnesia).
Ha! I love google. The Nazi movie with Cary Grant and Claude Rains was Notorious. Suspicion was the one where Joan Fontaine played a wealthy heiress who marries a broke Cary Grant and starts to believe he's trying to kill her. Good stuff!
