The Glengarry Glen Ross Minute

Two guys chew over their favorite Mamet movie - one minute at a time.

Minute 71: Dot-Matrix Printed, Motivational Signs

June 6th, 2018

Bill starts the show by waving Matt off, which Matt does not accept favorably.  Leon Redbone pops by for a sec, which is always a treat. The fellas discuss the short-shorts era in the NBA.  Pacino is still the best hand actor we’ve ever seen. Ricky’s fabrications are getting more impressive as the con continues.  Jim gets activated for a moment. Ricky struggles thru these moments but uses modern dance to express his utter disbelief.  Jonathan Pryce is glorious. A very helpful secretary, tries to give Ginny Lingk a word to the wise.  This sparks a stand alone “Ginny Movie” idea from the boys. The fellas discuss a part of the office that we haven’t spent a lot of time in before now. Aaranow pitches in, making the printed motivational signs.  The fellas talk about the perforations in early printer paper, cause why not? Our heroes get into a WWTP to cast a “Ginny.”  Bill is Anti-Fonda and cant get past his own barriers. The fellas get some help from the @Scotthdc out of the GGGR twittersphere with a whole cast, re-casting.  The fellas got GIFTS that they absolutely did not deserve (thank you @SReyngoudt). Bill starts everything he does with a step backward. The Romaville Cheesy Jingle Singers get brought to the fore, submissions forthcoming. Bill wants every “U” to be liquid.  Matt wants all his lunches to be liquid. 

(Matt wants everyone to know it’s his birthday and that anything from the Johnny Walker family of scotches can make the perfect gift for the perturbed, executive podcaster in your life.)
