I've got another interview on Wednesday, only this time it's for a volunteer position with an art foundation, who run a programme to encourage ordinary people to invest in modern art. To this end, they offer training courses, excursions to art exhibitions and art fairs, and information on legal matters and taxes. They need someone to help them in the office, and I thought it might be a more interesting proposition than making coffee in a community centre, so I applied for it. My only worry is that my continuing to look for paid employment elsewhere might prove a stumbling block for them, as I can't promise to be available for any given length of time.

It's Day 16 in the 30 Day Movie Meme, which means it's time to list my guilty pleasure movie:





Among my many weaknesses when it comes to films is one for Arnold Schwarzenegger, whose bodybuilder physique, one-dimensional acting ability and heavy Austrian accent never fail to amuse me (esp. in those early movies of his). Therefore, the two early 80s sword and sorcery Conan-films rank high on my list of Guilty Pleasure Movies, that also carries titles of fantasy movies like Labyrinth, Legend, Willow and The Dark Crystal.


Day 17 - Favorite series of related movies
Day 18 - Favorite title sequence
Day 19 - Best movie cast
Day 20 - Favorite kiss
Day 21 - Favorite romantic couple
Day 22 - Favorite final scene/line
Day 23 - Best explosion or action scene
Day 24 - Quote you use most often
Day 25 - A movie you plan on watching (old or new)
Day 26 - Freakishly weird movie ending
Day 27 - Best villain
Day 28 - Most overhyped movie
Day 29 - Movie you have watched more than ten times
Day 30 - Saddest death scene
Day 31 - Scene that made you stand up and cheer

I own every one of those movies you mentioned, lol!

I actually have a decent "barbarian" movie collection, they're so much fun. Did you know they're making a new Conan movie? Based more closely on the original novel.
