conversation sometimes worth recording with Josh Johnson and Tommy jacket. It's a daily Talk Show Episode 137 Tommy jacket. It's early morning for you yet, Chris. Let's get some of that small talk out of the way. It's a cold one. But I'm, I'm being fueled by 711 long black coffee. And let's say it
and every time you mentioned 711 cup coffee, we need to add a bit of balance by also mentioning out an official sponsor quote block. The most amount of listeners we have is from quite lots of great company that provides mounting systems for your iPhone or any sort of smile If you use their universal, they're not even a sponsor just by the way, but I
want bone to pick with them. I just went and I've got two of those flavors of Slurpee currently running and it's fucking winter. Go for you. You go in summer, and there's she tea flavors that are just like broken, but it's wintertime, and I've got to they have lemon lime in business going. No, no. They've got
your fact. You don't know what a good flavors No, they've got.
Well, I've got two flavors that I wanted to try. But it's winter some clearly and I could try it. They've got sugar free grape sour, which I would like to try. That sounds fucking out of control. But then they've got vanilla coke.
And that one's not like when when you told me about the zero towels. We went I think we're going to proton the photography. I joined getting some shape lot. So whatever. And we had a 711 I see the reason I two people call it ISIS. Or is it a thing from 1997, by all see Ravi was someone trolled you in that's what they said that they were called. And then you know the martini basketball at dandy basketball stadium. You gotta I see I think a Slurpee a Slurpee might even be a 711 like registered. Right. But you're also the guy that almost got conned into buying proxies because they are calling them what was it very true. Very true. Yeah, no oxy cotton. There were there were saying oxy. But I thought I was saying Roxy when I was in San Francisco
for the first time just to close the loop. It's 1% sugar in the Slurpee says the why they get around it so there is a few calories but they like the closest thing you can have if you being a little bit naughty a 711 I do feel like it is the type of Slurpee that you would drink and then shoot your pants it's definitely has that vibe it's got a bit of sort of clean out like like what what is it What's a corporate he put into your pipe drive I know clean or something head dry dry no vibes all my god we we bought I know it wasn't dry no it was this is really strong room like a surface scrubbing it would be like we killed somebody mood trying to get rid of the body we we hide this hotel room and I don't know about you Josh I I can hundred percent guarantee you didn't do this as a young a young person with the boys. We used to hire hotel rooms and we went pretty fucking dirty. At some point. We got like service departments and then we kind of upgraded we went to the Hilton we got a crown towers room one night we got like 40 people in that room.
You and I were actually doing a video project and as we were in the lift to you said I can trashed one of these hotel rooms. It's especially as we're going up the lift. Sorry, what would you actually do? What was the you were tracking sheet of a cubed by the way if people haven't gathered from the last couple of episodes, but what was the what was the deal?
Well we so the way we actually got them was by getting someone who is bit older to put their name down I mean first of all, as I as I've got older What a fucking idiot Why would they put their name
while loop but also the loser that's doing that all that's fine. You alcohol would you would you buy some kids alcohol? If they asked you?
Probably not. Now I could be fact I'd have to really have a lot of time on my hands. It's more of a time when I
had a lot of cash in a lot. Okay, now,
but so we get these rooms because we just wanted some way where we could party and there's a bit of novelty to you know, hotel for Star five star and you just I like the vibe and so we would get them and one of them was like I had for my birthday. One of them was across a weekend. What year what birthday would This is 12th birthday. 1617.
I just went to fuck an IMF bowling and I was lucky to fill a whole party room like it was sort of, Okay, I'll just invite everyone from my class just like
he's where it went bad. We got the crown towers room and we had it for those on the one night and I think there was at least 40 people that came into the room there was you know, it was a smoking room so people were just smoking so much Wade and those people taking illicit substances I can safely say I didn't take illicit substances that night but someone burned someone was smoking a cigarette and put it out on the couch and then someone came and had Hey spray like colored Hey di spray in their head and they were making yet with this girl in the bed on the white sheets and so the fucking sheets when bright red and then someone got toothpaste on the couch our man a toothpaste wasn't
it legit legit This is what we some people used to troll each other by that like passing out and then they just put toothpaste all over their face and when they work out what their face
What did what did your parents me Your mom's an avid listener of the daily talk show what was your mom's vibe on all of this shit she's she's a
good citizen and to have bread something like you was I mean yes are different now but you as a kid it does you use get you would have scared me as a kid like I would have been square scared at the naughtiness yeah
that you were willing to play and I always probably in I was probably the most in control in those environments which which Sam yeah that was very much Lucy unit there but all I can say I can't remember what I would tell my mom or and it was it we weren't like I wasn't set out to do really bad sheet in this place like I get it we're in a hotel so I had I had my bearings in that respect I wasn't Were you the one telling them and saying guys said well I feel like in that scenario I would have just become the guy who was freaking out the whole time and telling people to get off the couch and stop doing that and yeah you put your weighed out well yeah I definitely was telling people to to calm their farm but the one about that the the the black rhino cleaning thing was we hired this this service department in Windsor and I was in PR and just randomly train line the chapel straight and I don't know what the fuck these two people doing and the one of the guys that did it since going to he was in jail and God he's fucking throat slit and he's just he survived that really became a heroin addict and the other guy now leaves overseas because he got in trouble with the law but they started a fire in the bath which is absolutely in fact Mike Nichols who how and did
you think that this was a good idea to be matched with these guys now there was like good mates that would like just young dude like young people like how normal are they are they like Mike James Are you grew up with like a normal like James because James seems like even though that he might have been a bit of a naughty hashtag naughty boy he he's a businessman now you would like he's he's released of calm and I think you know like what are these guys actually like or some of them completely loose units
I think when you're 16 when you any young there's a heap of loose units no one's work they shoot out yet I've said to you it's like and
I was talking to my best man yesterday and and he's the one that we talk everyday man What are you talking
before we're talking
to one of the other boys who was who was a part of that and that those hotel rooms and we feel like we survived like it's like you come out the other side of those ears when you're playing in that space and there was a lot of people that killed themselves or got killed or you know in car accidents or things like that or became arrow anything fucking Brighton I'd like I grew up need dandy gnome wish it was actually like you'd go to dandy station yeah hundred percent so you're saying yeah so the opportunity there are they in a bad environment which it doesn't necessarily mean that you become bad it is a massive fat clearly like issue
well, like being in a low socio economic school and then maybe that's why I was school Captain at my school was because like the if I if I'd gone to you know wisely your St Leonards or any of those
maybe maybe your achievements at a young age. We're all just because you're at a school that was people didn't give a fuck and you were the only one who cared. So you have this false sense of achievement. Well, I mean, my favorite story, one of my favorite stories to tell friends who went to private schools was how my you 12
it teacher told me that if I didn't do my Excel sack that he would fail me, right. I had to do the sack. And then it was just a passing comment when I finished and I said, Okay, and I didn't think anything of it. And then I got my results back. And the fuck if I owed me I'm just like, if you were in a private school, they would be pulling in before they would would do that. That'd be pulling in your parents. That'd be having conversations, but it was literally like, and just a quick remark at the end of a session. And I am so I failed you. 12. Yeah,
it you'd be surprised like you think your private schooling and think you're getting this Uber treatment. Right. But for the kids like Uber black treatment?
Yeah, I mean, I was on the Uber Uber pool, maybe open rates at time broken
down at all.
I'm catching the bus and you're in you're an Uber black now there is legitimately for kids that aren't right for the system. It doesn't matter where you are. I had some really, really amazing teachers that public schools that I went through that had a lot a lot of a lower socio economic
I was gonna say fan base school buys like student base
and that's how our fan base very low socio economic that's
just on the school stuff. I've got a cold sore at the moment. Yes, Josh, I have her bs I have a PC advisor peace, not genital herpes. But as a kid What's the difference? I really it will there's a big difference
you can't see the other ones and it's a different it's actually different at top of strains
of feel different I don't
know is that what you're getting at
now but not exactly we see you this topic in you would have been was probably the reason I didn't go to school when I had herpes or had a cold so it's like back when I was a kid like I think now like I've got more grown up but I don't care about having a cultural my face like I used to it. But it used to make me feel like I was fucking Gremlin. Did you ever give sheet to kids at school with called sold
now I wasn't giving it to anyone. I was literally just in that moment thinking would I have given you shit. And literally, I would have been too busy eating nachos from the school canteen because our school contain had nachos. And we had a Movie Club so I would just like order my card shows. Now let's sit and watch a movie. But I didn't give a fuck about people's cold sores. And so I was just
Yeah, I was playing a different game. Not not that much bullying going on our mind good because I want to Kiki Hadean but I yeah there was a lot of days that I didn't go to school which sounds so silly because you fucking cold sore in your face Have you got you got a big her up on your face now I tell that battle you can't really tell because I'm going to be like I've got such so much shit going on my face
yes okay kind of blends in but my for anyone who has them I can hundred percent sympathize empathize it you feel like it's the only thing that when you're in a conversation the person's looking at and they might but that probably add majority of the time they're actually thinking about them so
I can actually relate to that with when I my nose nearly fell off from sunburn when I was in London got severe sunburn. If you look at some of my photos on Instagram. You'll you'll notice it. I was a little bit self conscious with the big sort of scabby knows that on my face so I can relate in that regard well I would too but yours
isn't a lifelong condition that you can't actually get nice and well yeah it's all cleared up now look I've got like a pretty sick 10 I've been putting sunscreen on my nose every day I'm Josh is looking into the camera lens on on FaceTime here you think about a glasses and I've always I've always thought this with glasses it makes you look like you've got a prosthetic knows attached to the glasses and is it just my specific last so everyone's class now your ones are probably the closest thing to not having that because you've gone the Steve Jobs looking glasses but the big one that that there was a guy in in high school I went away and this camp to Clunes
it's like a whole month for why would have been a loose unit when it comes to school camps like if you were hiring the Hilton you know just doing Lucia there I can only imagine what school camps are like right there
now I was actually I was actually it's probably the time I thrived because it was the closest thing to
living a normal life or like you know like you're on an adventure and it's like it stimulated me You weren't doing book work and talking about bullshit all All I think about is links Africa and lighters when I think about school camp because that was literally I feel like a half half of the school camp was naughty boys with their links Africa and lighting it on fire
yeah that is so true links fact that shit stink at it make a yes young
What is it called it's called x or something is called x in the US and I saw I can't remember who it was an American frame who was traveling had some or maybe even my mate nice on has like their Zhao just remember like having a really good laugh like, Oh, that's links. I laughed. And then obviously anyone that owns links or with links doesn't understand how funny links is because you wouldn't be wearing it just completely went over their head. What else
is like, this is the funniest thing over saying well, I use the dove female Well, it's like a it's like a cross six spray. But it's very fame in terms of its smell. It's like soft cucumber. But it's it's the best one because you don't end up smelling like your 14 year old on school camp.
Well, the best the best deodorant is by far I've been using it. I've nearly run out. But Jason Fox who have had on the podcast, he got me some Dr. Dre, which you would think is sort of the it's a bit of a troll gift. Or it's one of those things where it's it's seems like something you he when someone smells and you sort of try and tell them politely by buying him some deodorant, but he told me about this. So the hipster deodorant that he uses. And it's amazing. It's all natural. And it's in like, it looks almost like a hair wax. And it's called Mr. Pitts. And you rub it on. And it's been fucking phenomenal between doing that and wearing my merino wool t shirts. I'm like, I haven't smelled and all
it was a slippery slope, I feel with those runs because you're going to be the guy that ends up just using a crystal and DRAM, you know, there's not that user legit. Mom would have us a crystal use she I remember seeing and I was like, What is that thing? That's disgusting. It looks like a piece of salt and a king size piece of salt that you're robbing and your app. And it was like, No, there's no chemicals or say me stink. Yeah,
the whole everyone in at the yoga studio would be using it and stuff. I feel like it's got that sort of vibe. Yeah, I mean,
well, there's diminishing returns on just your brand going that way.
I don't know if PayPal PayPal know. But talking about brand. Actually, I was just before we were
started this. So it's it's what six 615 in the morning. This is one of the first times that you're doing the the early shift. So I appreciate that. Thank you. It's it's a quarter past 10 he on the island and can I say we're doing a fucking brilliant job when it comes to the latency. I'm feeling strong. The band is strong This is a good episode everyone send us your revolut us through the podcast app the know how it's gonna I was gonna tell you about the this documentary that I've been watching on Supreme. Do you know about the brand surprising?
Yeah, they're very expensive. I actually don't know how they've become so popular. All I all I see is like rich kids.
Yeah, it's I think it's a very big in Asia with rich people.
Yeah, that's all I got started in Japan. Japan. Is it like the most amount of stores? I think there's about four or five stores in Japan. There's two in the US I can just hit Bray, you're running in the background, which is really killing the moat continue on the the Yeah. So basically, the brand is all about limited run clothing. And they that you would have st you might have seen them that sort of the red block. And then in white writing, it says surprising and what they were talking about on this documentary through YouTube was all about the resell reselling of this stuff. So basically the same as with what's happened with the iPhone with Apple. These launches now just have, you know, hundreds of resellers lining up and then they sell them. So an example is that like, you buy a T shirt from supreme for $49. And then the resale value instantly is over $250. Yeah, that's crazy when you could be willing to line up a fucking hate on and I don't like some great Have you ever lined up for for something like
not not for shoes or phone? I'm just trying to think maybe the closest thing is what you an idea. We, I mean, we were in different universities Krispy Kreme, Krispy Kreme, but that's the closest thing and I mean, we could smoke marijuana in the car. And we got the luxury of heroin car
in the car. So we did this. That's right. I I did it on force. I was
13 or 14. Fox FM was actually doing it outside podcast. That's how big Krispy Kreme coming to Neri Warren next to fountain gate.
We actually named episode live.
I did it from there.
What a horrendous episode that was. We spoke to some guys from no ballpark though. That was probably a highlight. But I did have someone say to me, we caught up with someone in Italy a couple of weeks ago. And I said, How have you listened to the podcast, which is always a little bit risky? And he said, Oh, yeah, I listened to the Krispy Kreme.
Okay, yeah, no. Did I? How did I have that happened? But
that's okay. Yeah. Good. Episode is horrible. It was. Yeah, it was good. So that's the Supreme. What I say I follow this guy in Melbourne. Who I mean, I can. What, what my take on him is that he has inherited money or he's family, a very rich and he lives in this house interact. And he has Bentleys and Lamborghinis and jewelry, inspiring Cartier and Rolex, and he's photos and he's living this life of just traveling around. But he buys a whole bunch of supreme and he's always posting like, the bags. And it's like, it's a bit of a it's such a wink thing to bank it is. But it's, that's I mean, these brands you hope you become a wink brand in terms of the size like and when I say Wei
Wei Wang Brent.
Well, when when do when do we become a wink? brand new, I guess we can never become a wine brand.
Yeah, I think it's like these blank brands. Not you might take that the wrong way. But it's like it's more of a show we thing you're like people want to pose with your your brand, which is so powerful, like hats off to Supreme. How the hell I've done that. But sometimes it's like a it's like a not that you can afford the hat. By the way. I know what she does, she does. So there's no hats off. Because we don't we don't own a hat. But it's like the true momentum like they they get through they brand through these people. Sometimes I don't think the brand even would think this is going to happen. Like how much how much success of people had how much excess how much success of people had over the years where it's been out of their control. But they've done a few things. But then they and then so the telling the success story of something that they didn't even plan out. That's what I love about
I think that they they started in the 90s as sort of a skater brand and then have obviously gone well beyond that. But the interesting thing I think, is that the what supreme sort of has has done or especially in 2018 is if you've you've heard of the phrase flexing you had a flex Yeah, yeah, so it's all it's all flexing, right? It's like you so for people who don't know flexing is something that I think a bunch of YouTubers have been called out for doing especially if they've got sort of doing blogs but it's people showing off and taking photos of their things and so you might tai lopez the the dude who films himself with all these Lambo is talking about how he made all of these money through rating like he's
he's flexing, flexing, a fab and this guy that I'm talking about the, the young buck from Melbourne. with lamb bows and Bentleys and shit, he definitely flexing so get this I follow him pretty, I mean, yeah, sure, I'd like some of these lifestyle but it's also just like, the ridiculousness of it as to why I follow. And so he he did this Instagram story once where he was like packing. He was in a cupboard in his walking dressing room, and he had all these closer and he's packing up all this old stuff that doesn't wear and when I say old stuff, it's fucking supreme clothing shoes, like shit, that's really expensive that he's worn once and he's packing it into bags. And he's like, All right, guys, the story basically evolve and he's like, I'm going somewhere in Melbourne. I'm going to leave this bag full of these expensive clothes. And I'm not gonna say where do you know this guy again, I just a mate of mine has partnered with him few times. And been to his house and and and sold him some art and actually he's bought some art. And so this guy went and took a bag of clothing to this location. And he didn't say where it was. But you could tell where it was. It was in the car park behind Dan Murphy's and paraben free one denies it called luck shout out to doing I am doing a renovation to this car park at the moment. We used to go there and they when we were young, and they used to be like a burnout competition illegal anyway. So this guy was in his Bentley and he draws and parks and puts this bag full of supreme clothes and other you know Gucci shit, it's like ridiculous, probably with a couple of grand and he puts it just in the middle of the car park near a ticket machine, and then he packs sort of off to the side and he waited and like someone came within 30 minutes and he filmed them and he's like, laughing like look at this guy picking up this bear your clothing as I joke's on you, Ed you just gave away for grants clothing to grants with the clothes and this person got I literally thought about going to get it but this is like rich rich boy games.
I just there's a huge amount of that I think especially even in places like to buy there's a big gun culture on like buying exotic animals so people having like tigers and elephants and chip justice pants just to flex it's fucking rugby seems a little bit a little bit wrong.
I'll just flex your moment. This is more of a life hack flicks from a poor boy in Melbourne.
But when I was when I was in Hollywood and we were in like a mood or this when we go to Li You go to the thrift shops that are written like West Hollywood so you're in a really really good spot and there's the thrift shops there and you go in I found a pair of shoes that have been worn once you couldn't even tell they smelt new and there were $20 a pair of high tops and there were Alexander McQueen and I didn't even know what these were so they were like an added s run with Alexander McQueen I think that we're at an SEO anyway Alexander McQueen the designer had had done like a limited run of these shoes and I bought them for fucking 20 bucks and I jumped online 220 bucks to buy brand new and these things were pretty much brand new because because we
were in Hollywood like you know the big celebs Are you thinking about going this specifically for that reason when you like this gotta be some some good shit neither would in Hollywood just it I'm at
Whole Foods cross the road then we just walked over and we're like fact let's have a look through here and I saw these high tops and I looked at the price like shit I'm buying is I walked out with them on my best parish at my favorite pair of shoes that I don't wait
I actually another little bit of a life hack I always buy my undies at Marshalls in in the states which is like the American listeners Spence's probably rolling his eyes right now but the basically there's like TJ Maxx Marshalls they have all the really good brands and it's like super cheap type of shit it's like cheaper than day fr and also thing so I met nice on grew up in Papa New Guinea but he was born in Chicago and he would they would go back to the States every couple of years and they would do this massive like just shop up of just buying all clothes for the next couple of years because paying j being a pretty
poor country and not having that many shops one thing and so when traveling with him he just got me into this habit So sure enough even all of breeze and he's have from marshals Jessica Simpson's range Oh like just hide craft them all and so that's a that's another because I think that might be that whole foods that you're talking about and and stuff in West Hollywood. I feel like there there might be a marshals very close by will have to. Maybe we'll do a show from the car park of that thrift shop yet. Yeah. And so what we can see what we can find. Well,
aim out of the day. TJ was that
word of the time
to wrap this up. All right.
Take us out with them. Are you worth that's worth a damn you think that have have the Kindle here and all that sort of thing. So do you know it's actually really hard just to think
think of a word on the top of your head. That's that's just not basic. Yeah,
got this fucking to be able to just real something off quickly or so this word it's very basic. Right. But I think it's one that even you and I have been talking about what the exact meaning is very, very basic. Okay. Go for
Yeah. Well, I think I think you've done this one because he tried to school Mila out enough. That was right, Matt. I use primitive in a sentence. You
know if you're that, right. So now he's going to
have a crack at what you think primitive. It's the funny thing is the reason I
came up was because I'm not on my Kindle. Or I've got my laptop here. And I talk dictionary.com, and it finished it with primitively as the as the word you know tomorrow. So what do you think? primitive forms? I thought primitive was from the word primal meaning
the sheer like I guess human would he call it human traits across many years. Like a primitive behavior is something that is like from our ancestors and back it's like a real core human trait. That's what I that's what I kind of feel. I know this is another one that I know when to use it. But I couldn't fucking explain it. Geez, there's so many people out there we just revealing African inability a lack of believing
quite real dummy.
No, but I think most people know about the stuff I think there's a lot of people that lockout upside down masses.
Yeah, so it's an adjective adjective primitive, being the first or earliest of the country or in existence, especially in an early age of the world world,
primitive forms of life would be in a sentence. So I think it's pretty pretty spot on. Yeah. And so doing something primitive is what people would have done in the early existence of human con. So it's like, I think you could citing if it's
Yeah, primitive you could be I guess there's something you could say to if someone like say if there was a I would use it in a sentence where save someone had done some work maybe or someone had an idea which was a bit old school or like art or I've done something it's the early stage and say, Oh, this is a pretty primitive version of that final film that I'm making maybe I'll use it like matter
I like it thanks for the Word of the Day one
consistent now i think i think it's I think it's good hi the daily talk show.com maybe you can send us your
your words The funny thing is every time we do this I think of Gemma watts who's a copywriter who listens to our show and I'm always just thinking of just like her eyebrows raised the ridiculousness that is us talking about Wood's potentially maybe you can school us send us a word I want the evolution and maybe I bring in this segment after we get sick of doing word of the day and it's never gonna happen now saying of the day and the origins of the site that's a great night I think that this could actually be a benchmark yeah like every because this so many sayings that I also think that I fuck up in the world I just let you just go with it with confidence but it's you know, especially older people saying sayings to older people because you know that they're fucking primitive and there they know the original Yeah, yeah, yeah, it's, I think that's a good idea. Hi. The Daily talk show.com for your sayings that you want to send us or even words of the day. TJ Have a lovely Wednesday and everyone else listening enjoy die as well. I'm off to bed. Have a good one say guys.
