seems like an appropriately corny ending for a movie that also utilized George Thorogood's "Bad to the Bone" without irony.
also, I don't really have any better job-hunting advice than what was already posted. depending on how badly you need money right now, you could also find some volunteer work to a) stay busy, b) pad your resume, c) do something meaningful, and d) hopefully meet more people that might happen to know of some job openings (assuming it comes up in conversation). but, you know, still have relationships beyond such transactions.
that's all I got. in the past I've gotten jobs through a rehab program, the current job I'm at I got on my own but I was still working at one of those jobs beforehand so it wasn't like I didn't have a back-up.
