The Shining : Would you do this job if it was offered to you

Would you do this job if it was offered to you

Be a off-season caretaker in a isolated Hotel - I would do it but I am not sure being locked-up day & night during all winter would be good for my sanity.

I would probably spend all my time in the Gold Room - Picking up 1920's chicks & drinking free bourbons on the rocks & watching Al Bowlly live in concert...

You could always post on IMDB to pass the time lol - I am sure the OverLook Hotel would provides U with their internet services...

I would hang out with the 1920's people at the Goldroom - It a dream come true for me it's like going back in time to the 20's & 30's era...

I'd probably do it. I wouldn't know about the spirits so I wouldn't have a reason not to. What's better than being paid money to live in a beautiful, extravagant, luxurious building?

Re: Would you do this job if it was offered to you

If the phone lines went down (as they did in the movie) wouldn't that mean there would be a good chance cable lines would be knocked out too? No TV. No internet.
Cell service might be spotty or out also.

I don't think I could do it.

Re: Would you do this job if it was offered to you

I'd have to bring some DVDs with me but 5 months worth would be a lot. I imagine I wouldn't have room to bring them all so I'd probably have to watch the same ones over and over. If they didn't even have a DVD player I'd be doomed.

Re: Would you do this job if it was offered to you

I agree & also porn films just in case, there is no internet access unless some hot naked girl is waiting for me in the bath tub that doesn't turn into an old bag...

Re: Would you do this job if it was offered to you

I don't think I could take it, even though I like reading. If there was Internet access, I think I could do without human contact.

Re: Would you do this job if it was offered to you

Dream job.

Re: Would you do this job if it was offered to you

I would. Being alone in an isolated place and having a huge facility at my complete disposal has always been one of my favourite fantasies; a bit like being the only person alive on Earth, and having the resources of a whole planet to pick from...

Heck no. Sounds like tedious work, too sheltered and isolated (I like to explore since I'm a Type A personality) and I'm not an avid snow person either.


When God made Tom Cruise, he was only joking.

Re: Would you do this job if it was offered to you

Sign me up.

I imagine an old hotel like that has a fabulous library (or would have in 1980). You could probably read a lot of what is on the shelf that interests you while tending to the boilers and fixing broken things.

Plus, the Snowcat would have been fun in between snow falls.

You could make some major gourmet meals in that kitchen too.

Sounds like the perfect job for me actually.

Conquer your fear, and I promise you, you will conquer death.

Re: Would you do this job if it was offered to you

I'd be curious to find out how many pages of "All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy" I could crank out.

Don't put the devil in the picture, cause' the religious groups won't wanna see it.

Re: Would you do this job if it was offered to you

I'm not entirely sure if I would do it. But I would definitely consider it. I'm somewhat of a misanthrope who isn't good it, or enjoys socializing with other people. I have often been keen on living as a hermit, somewhere I'd have little to no contact with others. So it would definitely appeal to me in that respect.

Re: Would you do this job if it was offered to you

In a heartbeat, I'd love it, all the food you can eat, plenty of room to move around in. Free board, and also get paid for it. Wouldn't scare me in anyway.

How History Recurs, repeats itself, endlessly, by 'forgetting' it

"I have no recollection of that."---the obscene spectre Delbert Grady.

It seems that a lot of the posters here didn't really watch/understand the film at all, are all unconsciously envious of Jack Torrance.

STUART ULLMAN: Well, obviously some people can be put off by the idea of staying alone in a place where something like that actually happened.

JACK TORRANCE: Well, you can rest assured Mr. Ullman, that's not going to happen with me! And as far as my wife is concerned, I am sure she'll be
absolutely fascinated when I tell her about it. She's a confirmed ghost story and horror film addict!


You want to be(come) another Jack Torrance ...

Re: How History Recurs, repeats itself, endlessly, by 'forgetting' it

I'd do it as long as I had plenty of booze, porn and a fleshlight.

Re: Would you do this job if it was offered to you

Only if you really need the prolonged peace and quiet. I imagine those who have lived in cities all their lives may welcome such a drastic change of pace.

Re: Would you do this job if it was offered to you

I woukd do it in a heartbeat. As long as it paid enough.

Re: Would you do this job if it was offered to you

I would take it, but spend it / my family.

Re: Would you do this job if it was offered to you

Are you asking if one would take a job at a haunted hotel like the Overlook, or a non-haunted one?

Either way, I'm not sure if I would enjoy it. Big empty houses kind of creep me out, and this would be that X 100.

Re: Would you do this job if it was offered to you

I got stuff i could take to fight boredom. It would still get boring. Also depends on what money was offered.

Watch vintage old black & white silent stag movies in the hotel basement while sipping bourbon with some gents I befriend in the ballroom, which was basically how folks got their hot naked chick porn freak on in those prehistoric days before the internet existed.

Re: Would you do this job if it was offered to you

Those flapper babes from the 1920's were pretty damn hot, wild, and sexy: They liked to smoke cigars and cuss, too. Plus they threw all caution to the wind with their carefree attitude towards life in general and brashly spat in the face of repressive conventional and conservative sexual mores. They dressed to the nines in fancy hats and swanky gowns as well. In other words, fun gals to hang out and party with. And gettin' them to give up the goods didn't take a lot of work, which is a very tasty cherry on an already most delicious cake.

Re: Would you do this job if it was offered to you

If I was single, and actually knew how to repair things I would love it. I would bring tons of books and catch up on my reading.
