On workplace culture

I really, really love my job.

I love it enough to poke a little goodnatured fun at both my TCM and TNT colleagues.

So here’s a little additive decoration I graced upon the new coffee station in on our break room.

Coffee is for closers!
Coffee is for closers!

I was inspired by Alec Baldwin’s iconic performance in Glengarry Glen Ross:

I’ve been thinking about the whole “Coffee is for closers, only” line since the last time the movie ran on HD Net. I have it on the TiVo downstairs cued up to this exact scene right now.

Earlier this year when TCM put out the call for folks to participate in an employee hosting event by submitting our favorite films, this movie was at the top of my list.

And while I wasn’t accepted, I like to think that I just made my coworkers a little bit happier by paying tribute to a great actor & performance (Alec is also co-host of The Essentials with Robert Osborne) and a great actress (Emmy winner Kyra Sedgwick), all while they get their morning caffeine fix. You’re welcome.

I hope you enjoyed your Monday morning as much as I enjoyed mine.
