Very low barrier to get into the ground spot. We're committed to do the daily talk show for 10 years. I had guys put it in the calendar. Just like to check the temperature in the room. I told you my squeegee story,
the daily talk show episode, 1,003 happening. What is going on with this? We missed yesterday. Yeah, it's been a while since we, uh, we haven't really done that. Never. Never missed. So I just took a big gulp of my vitamin C drink ours. It's great. Yeah. Um, being with all the, the whole office has been, we're not sick, we're all working, but there is an exhaustion.
If you didn't hear the episode where we talked about the ransomware dealing with all of that has been happening, let us shoot on, you know, Amy's sick as a dog. She has to cancel a trip to Sydney. That's an awful thing. My, um, when did she make the call? Uh, made the call to me today. And so she was going to be going to slow night.
Who was she saying? Her besties, all the besties in mama, which is at one of her besties. And because she's due in six weeks, five weeks, 32 weeks. So it's like eight, eight weeks I worked, um, but very annoying pregnant, sick. Like I had to go last night to the, um, Chemist. And I was like, I'll get you some anti, uh, sort of anti antiseptic mouthwash, like the rinse Goggle for your throat.
Can't have it like these things that I just, cause you're not even taking it in it's um, it's the anesthetic in it. That's no good for you even like, um, math, like laws, Hindus couldn't get that's a good segment. What can't you, what are the surprising things? You can't eat whilst pregnant. Well, there's fish obviously.
Yeah. I mean, not as, obviously, it's not obvious to anybody. I hate it when people say, obviously it's like, fuck, fuck me. I'm not, I'm not getting pregnant. It's a guy. Yeah. But it's it's um, so mercury in fish metally fish, uh, kind of have anyway, but he's been sick. Amy Sikh. My best mate just called me, told me his son has croak.
This there's something in the edit and it's not it's croup. Well, that's in the air. But you just, you always want the person to blame and we don't know that. Yeah. Who was the person that got everyone sick? I mean, being at the school today, filming, uh, when you're the sick Bay and we, so we see the comings and goings of kids, lots of sick kids.
I just love just saying, uh, one kid, he had three friends delivering him to the office cause he was sick. Oh my God. And when he walked into the sick Bay, He said I'm back. It was when he thought seek by for me as a kid, Wesley college, it would have cost my parents at least two 50 a day, private health insurance to use the facilities.
It was not. So back in my day, there was beds in sick Bay. Well, there's no beds in sick Bay anymore. And so I would get a full sleep in seek Bay, but think about sheets, kids getting in there. Yeah. Having a sleep, then they change over the sheets that wasn't happening. It was so much more lax. If you think about, like not saying that the reason we have a pandemic on our hands is because we're so finicky, but back in the day, think about how loose things have been loose things in society.
Yeah. Um, I mean, they, they came with everything along like racism. Sexism was rampant. You think about racism, sexism, and not washing your hands. She's like, uh, thinking about this food safety, uh, requirements for venues, just fireworks, just fucking. Learner's name just ability to be by fireworks the fact that I can go to Chinatown and buy fireworks as a kid, you don't think you could do the found it.
I once went into the city, found a manhole that was open, went down into the subway, but the thing is, these things are locked down now. Security cameras. The point is that it's like he could have probably worked that out, but like so many things need to happen are interesting. Um, like, uh, locking the door on planes.
I remember I went to Bali and I said, you're going to tell me that. They didn't used to lock the door. Not when that pit. Yeah, sure. They're locking the, um, Oh, the fucking planet. It's suction, man. You need it. It's cabin pressure. But think about like going, I don't know if you ever went to Bali, but yes you did.
Did you ever get to go up to the daydream Island and go in the car? Yeah, we'd get crayons and stuff. I don't know if it was an sat or Quantas, but yeah, you would get, it was a really good. Kate. And I remember specifically smelling the plastic. Of the stuff that you would get, because you'd get older, the crayons and the pencils, and it had a smell to it.
I loved. So think about why they, it was a nine 11, they stopped, stopped a lot of that stuff like locking the door or the cockpit. They don't come out. They're very, you know, they, the protocol. Yeah. Things need to happen before big change happens, you have to knock, you know, knock twice and go on the Intercom and all that sort of thing.
But it's, it is wild. It is wild. I mean, it's, it's already been on a plane yet. He went to New Zealand. Oh, that's right. He's been to Sydney, but he, I mean, he's already traveled. He went to, um, Santa rainy in mom's tummy. Yeah. A different experience, a little different, but we like to tell him that he was there.
He was, um, but it was a wild time. And so thinking about security cameras now, absolutely everywhere. Yep. Less naughtiness that you can get up to. Not saying you should get into, do you think that because we had the protein shop down the street, broken into that security tab, breaking enters been happening even just around like train stations, train yards.
Where people do graffiti, like where people can go, people will still do it. It's like saying banks will never be robbed again. There's just a new way of doing it, digitally someone inside, but it's not like the old bank robbery. Think about trying to Rob a bank. How would you determine that? Would you do it now?
Um, dude, there's no point you'll be caught my point. Like I remember going, if you needed to get. Cash quickly without using any means, what would you do? Well, I get away with it if you're smart enough. Yeah. I always think about it. Like, so think about it. If you had this super power, I've got, I'll get back to the question, but, and if you have, what would you do?
Like where would you get the money from? If you had to get money, like who would at least affect, if you did take it, like robbing a bank, it's very public. Yeah, for the trauma involved, you sort of want to do corporate crime wouldn't you you'd sort of want to cook the books you want to you'd want to be a CFO of a company that somehow, um, you know, just invoicing himself for himself.
So funny. Cause you don't want it to affect like the Gronk that's still super from a company was having cry, you know, stupid like that. So. We pay Subaru company, so, okay. Yeah. And if you're the CEO and you were like, yeah, the super's been paid and somehow you were the only person having correspondence with the ATO.
And then all of a sudden, like it's man, I know a guy used to come to the gym did eight years, eight years for, um, I don't think it was, he got eight years, but he did less, but it was like minimum security for fraud. What about that lady from mom? One of the banks. Literally, I loved it. It's one of my favorite articles in the paper because it went through everything that she had spent the cash.
And I was like, I fucking took a family, $800,000 hotel, a holiday to Europe, silly, good memories, lots of photos, lots of stuff. She would have had the kids at that point. Where are you telling your kids? You're fucking getting all this cash from, but I was just, I was thinking about jail in general. We're here.
Oh, no, I was just thinking about, um, uh, people going to jail or there, there was a, there was someone that was, um, prosecuted a few weeks ago. And you were talking about how much time they had, and we'll talking about all of that sort of stuff. You know, someone, if someone, uh, accidentally, uh, drives into someone or whatever, you know, it could happen to anyone.
Um, but obviously if you're, uh, under the influence or, you know, reckless driving, it's a guy that killed a grandpa. He was on ice. Good. Eight years. I saw him. I saw him within the last six years. You'd be, he'd got out. This was, you say, Oh dude, I'm sitting at this cafe and he walked past me and I'm defining now all these, we grew up.
We like, he went to another school, like from a good family. He used to punch on with his brother. But he was a real, and then he walked past me and he's like, yeah. He tells me that. I was like, Oh my God, did you say that? No, no. But I was thinking that I was like, fuck that's Baba. And you spoke to him just a quick while he walked by you.
Good. Yeah. I mean, it's, it's interesting. Hmm. Yeah. But you just don't want to, like, there's a, there's all these laws. For reason, but when you start zooming out a heaps and thinking about the world and laws and all of that sort of stuff, it's sort of weird, isn't it? It's like thinking about the, um, the solar system.
What laws we just thinking of just weirdness of it. So the, um, uh, India, the gut, I believe, I think it's the government, or maybe some politicians in India are saying, if you try and do some stuff around trying to stop oxygen or fucking around with the supplies at all. Yeah. You'll get the death penalty.
Holy shit. Well, look at the COVID stuff. The laws that have been that have come out, I was watching, uh, an arrest, a raid on Facebook and it was of this, this format and she just, she looked like she was in her fucking jammies, looked like Sunday morning. And, um, this is from Ballarat. Yeah. Yeah. And now I like, she she'd obviously posted something on Facebook that was.
About sort of an anti anti locked down rally. She probably organized it. She did it on a Facebook event. Did she put everything made in the van magnet event? And then the cops came, but the thing we're taking every device in this house, there's one guy, the guy filming. You're not taking my phone. All right, man, give me your fucking thing, but I've got an ultrasound in an hour.
Poor, poor woman's pregnant. I mean, yeah, I can, can you set up a rally? That's old though. It happened like, um, that was probably nearly a year ago now, but it surfaced. It's funny. You're talking about the surfacing stuff. What, uh, gets shown to me. On Instagram rails. Oh yeah. You were telling me this, uh, you were saying mate golf, isn't going to the moon.
You just it's like you bought a Tesla and now all you see is Teslas because I'm just seeing golf. Everywhere. So like it brain watching entourage, an old show. Yeah, just a random show. There's there's a golfing. I've watched those seeds. So, um, ghost town, right? So he's in, so we're like, let's watch something other than golf, golf.
Cause I'd been watching golf, swing videos, also stuff like this. What's something else. Let's watch the ghost town where the guy is in. Basically isolation in a ghost town. There's nothing there. It's an old mining town halfway through the video. He says, And this reminds me of when I used to play golf as a kid.
And then he went on for 15 minutes about golf. It's are you serious? I am a hundred percent banks. Like there is no reason to move. The needle is moving. It's not the driving range is fucking packed. It's like me saying like ultimate fighting. I think you'd probably ride on that too. Well, it is. I'm hearing about it more, but is it just because you're around or is it that.
Everything we're talking about. It's like, we're not going back with golf. We talked about this the other week. Um, what's the sport of snowboarding. Golf has never been. What do you think is, so maybe something that things that are having a research done was for a long resurgence at roller skating. I mean, the closing down the roller rink in, in Melbourne that had been open for 40 years, but sometimes that can be an indicator.
Closing it down. Yeah. Indicated that it's done. No, an indicator that it's ready to come back, come back. I mean, golf is a game we talked about this GB looked it up the 1918 hundreds. Yeah. Something. Yeah. What are some examples? So I think at a fashion wise flares check, no, no, I'm not saying the bag. Cut jeans, Tommy tops, like the wasted things, you know, that Tik TOK for kids.
Yeah, like dumb haircuts, mallet, what else? But you can call these caps backwards caps. Now they're not out, they're gone. They're gone. That's why I had to do it. Push it into the grind. Nah. Um, but you're talking, this is fast. Fashion has so many things in it. You're saying sport, you're talking about golf being for it to be here or like be big.
It has to have based some cards back in general, but it's just because. My, um, my mum would get basketball card collectibles when I was a kid basketball cards. MBA was ginormous when we were young and still is, and it's probably bigger than ever. Obviously there's more attention, more, it's accessible thinking about other streaming platforms you can pay for the watch.
Every NBA match, all that shit. But we're at a time where these cards are all old. They've had 20 years of poker bot. Yeah. And now the people that have kept tight with some of these, you know, boxes of fresh cards, it's, it's coming in. And so it's like, um, someone was saying, uh, so a mate of mine's got an, a.
Skyline GTR it's worth a shitload of money, but which can we get a montage of every time? Tell me about two times. It's still a funny montage of you, me time with the GTR and it's worth a hundred thousand dollars. So it's not to the point. The point is if someone doesn't buy it in, this is what someone said to me.
There's a chance that if someone doesn't buy it in the next. Five 10 years or five years, the people that were my age, me and my friend who has this car steel, we used to as kids go to car yards and look at the skylines and be like, Oh my God. Imagine that look at the intercooler fucking jerk. And it's going to blow off valve twin turbo, like go over the specs, fucking look at those rims or Nismo fucking gear, stick, matching fucking gear, stick and steering wheel.
The kids that have the nostalgia, the people that actually have money. So the, so the young bloke, who's a bowler, who's fucking now 35 or 45 and was obsessed with skylines back then has the money to buy now because he's worked his ass off her ass off, but then you get to a point you're like, ah, that'd be dumb.
Casio does dump it back in. In a big way. Yeah. Damn Pokemon go. Obviously I'm coming back in a new format. Yeah. Yeah. That was huge. But that died down very quickly. Didn't it? That was a real issue. People just walking around, but there was, I remember there was a guy who during lockdown was caught playing Pokemon thousands.
Yeah. But he was getting all of the. Pokemon or whatever that, however, it works one day fucking Indiana Jones. Do you remember now crazy cleanse? No, it was just like a, um, it was like a $2 shop sort of thing, but it was, it felt when I was a kid, it felt huge. They just had so much stuff. Um, uh, uh, in now. I mean, yeah.
I mean, if you've just bought, purchased 10,000 through, through a merchandise company. Good on ya. I'd I'd love. Scrunchies are obviously scrunchies. Yeah. What does scrunchies that you put in your hair? Always, always in, Oh no, I know what you mean. The Amy's got a bunch of the, sort of the more retro vibe, like the eighties, the, um, you picture someone in sort of leotards.
Well, I do, I picture it what's that I'm Sandy from, um, grace, grace, but like when she's in an excess, like some exercise gear or something sort of blonde hair up high with the flat, you know, that's there. Um, yeah, we have things. Evan fringes, fringes. Bangs. Yeah, you don't. Well, not enough. I haven't heard.
talk about bangs started bounce back in the day. Um, did you have a studded belt growing up? I think my brother did. What did you wear for pants for the majority of like, if you're going out, if you're doing any upends, what would you, how old I was Chris? Like your hands when I was young, there was a crisscross was a brand like a, if you will crisscross.
Yeah. They just like fucking jeans, but colored. They was like mustardy colored colored now thick like, um, wide Lake. Do you remember? Corteroids being big was for a little while. Yeah, definitely. Um, but then I used to wear parachute path. Yeah. I think that might be a fitness, same thing. Maybe. No, no same, um, junkie junkie slash graphic slash actually that's the original lab.
That's a big . It was like echo jackets. Spry jackets. Bumbag goodies bags for a bit. Yeah, for a bit. I mean, when you'd go to Bali, you'd have to have a bumbag because the cash, like I just remind the dad, you know, getting, uh, switching Ozzy dollars for, um, repair or whatever it is. Yeah. And, um, it's a couple of mil.
Yeah. It's just like stack it, like you're doing a deal with someone about a laser or whatever is, I know Amanda it's like, you sort of got one hand on the bum bag, 32 mil magic. 28. Yeah. And, um, you know, the bum pegs are big, but no, I, what I remember being the main types of pants that I wore were actually shorts.
They were denim shorts. Oh, you've been out of fashion denim shorts, like long, not like sort of high, not sort of like three quarter shorts, nah, three quarters. The pockets on the side, they were called cargo shorts, cargo shorts. Well, cause you can just hold so much stuff in them. I had like nothing, nothing like seeing a guy with too much in his cargo, short running.
Oh, momentum. It's fucking little sweeping the tornado. I know a guy that dodgy guy that crossed the road from me wears cargo shorts and he holding the whole holes. He's fucking really, it looks like a person. He's a pocket. It's that big. Yeah. I, um, um, the belts, the. Oh, yeah. The clamp is sort of the clamping.
Are they called FAQ? Yeah, they were, they were big. The, um, buckles or something. Oh, a big license. Is that what it was called? No. No, no shoes to be licensed. I never got into converse shoes. Just based on the docks. No, the docks dock, the converse one's called cons cons. Why is that funny? Because docs are their own doc Martens.
And then you've just gone with the short cons. They're just converse cons. Didn't think of that, but it might be another name for them. Chuck Taylors. Chucks. Yes. Chucks Chuck. So the chucks is what I would, because they were designed for a thinner ankle and I had quite a fat ankle and I would do some tear up my ankle.
Like you wouldn't believe just trying to be cool. And it was just sorry. Uh, because I've got wide fate and the shoe was quite narrow. I know it, sir. But, uh, the, it just, it would just like, my foot would sit over the soul, you know what I mean? Which is not good for the soul in any of that, but like just, it just felt like I was standing on it wasn't shoes, but I was trying to be fashionable.
Um, Yeah. There's yeah, there's been a lot of choices I've made to be fashionable, but I didn't feel bad. Uh, Pete Sheppard, I caught up with him the other day. You know, I've obviously I've been big on the crops. Just something to wear Birkenstocks. I've got a construction kid that I went to school with. He reckons he used to tell me his parents brought in Birkenstocks.
So the country really did not believe him now thinking about it. I think he just picked it up. I think his parents had a shop that sold them. Okay. Maybe one of the first in Melbourne. Yeah. That's still okay. Isn't it? Yeah. The fact that I remember it was just like, yeah, my parents. Yeah. There's um, there's a lot of Birkenstocks.
I'm a fan of, but I don't own them. I don't think I'm, I don't think I'm there. I couldn't just say, I think that there would be, I don't know if this is actually a thing, a bit nostalgia therapy. So rather than going to like a psychologist or a therapist, use that money to buy shit that you used to have as a kid.
Do you like that idea or not like this sad old guy who's fucking dreaming about the past. It's a bit Michael Jackson, isn't it?
Yeah. But yeah, no, but the, um, no, but what would it be? So if you had to have a real. Nostalgic experience. If you like, you know what, it doesn't do what it does to make like nostalgia building a ramp, like half pipe in the backyard. That's what my dad used to build his quarter pipes and skating and having just, yeah, the strategic for me would be building a skate park in my backyard and then getting a fresh pair of roller bites, skateboard bike, all the, all the trimmings.
And then just every weekend, just Skyden I skate. I was just. At the skate bowl all day. Do you know what would be really nostalgic? I would love to do this. If you would dealt with me pegging on a bike. Oh yeah, yeah, yeah. Like dinking put the pegs. Do you remember screwing on the pegs? So we would screw on pegs.
And the thing is, if you, if you went to, if you did too much of a, sort of a sharp turn, you would scrape good on the ground. Yes. I used to only have pigs on my right hand side. And then there was the, um, the cardboard that you would GAFA type to the back wheel. And so when you would ride, it would flicked tick, tick, tick, and it would sound great.
But man, I loved all that stuff. Even the, um, My cat, my bike alarm. I've told this many times on the show, he could do a montage on that, Georgia. Um, it had a wide foot. Yeah, it had, it had a code. And so if, if anyone, if anyone moved the tire, uh, there would be a big alarm. It's had stolen bike, stolen bike, and my bike had never been stolen before I got that alarm.
It was getting stolen every, nearly every day by the neighbors. Because it was a funny thing because I would be sitting, watching home improvement, eating some Vinetta or ice cream milkshake. Yeah. Just being like James got more than me, you know, just having some sort of blow up and then you hear stolen button, you know, running outside in your flannel flannelette pajamas to stay, save your bike.
It's put your bike out the back. Yeah, your mom. Wouldn't a, that we went through the cap guns with Greg. So, uh, anyway, happy Thursday. We're calling it this episode. Throwback Thursday, throwback, Thursday. It's correct. Didn't even think about that before, but it's a good idea. Isn't it? Yep. Thanks guys. I had to, somebody else bring it up.
I've got to go pick up out of here. I catch it on Sega.
