conversation sometimes worth recording with Josh Johnson and Tommy jacket it's the timely Talk Show Episode 152 Tommy jacket half my
you still Sandy bit off you almost I reckon 45% of the way there yeah you you really came down to a zero though that was full on yeah
I am we put out an awesome episode with me utter yesterday because yeah I was too sick to be able to talk we normally release them every Friday and then in was it case scenarios we we go live with one really was the straw that broke the camel's back Bay max message that I screenshot and text it to you now said I can't deal with this. I reckon be met can't deal with it. Because I feel like human is starting to sound more like I feel like this is sort of a Mac stick. It's got
sort of Husky sort of call voice Yeah. Yeah. But he's earned it from going out and partying way they punches. Like a pack a day when i don't think i don't think i don't think he smokes. Which is not punch that they can pretty much
Yeah, yeah. Yeah, I don't think he does. Now. He's a good man. Anyway, How you feeling? bit better, man?
I'm actually not really not today. But that's, that's okay. I am. We're in the south of France. I think it's probably the South. I couldn't tell you. Um, what the, what was the city called? I'll tell you where it where we are. But basically, there's like mountains around us, which is really nice. But just stopping over here for the night. The main I can say is that we're, um, we're in a place called Grenoble. You know if you had a Grenoble
Nah, but I heard of the south of France and that's where you're hitting. you're heading towards the water. Yeah.
Ah, so where are we heading to? Um, yeah,
this is this is the thing I'm not really cross too much. We've got two friends with us that we're traveling with, and I can't retain any information. It's not that I'm dumb. I think it comes in. It's almost like people with
dyslexia or, or things like that people confuse what dummy is I know that may not know English, it seems you're dumb but
yeah, well, I think he's, he's suddenly you could meet a ditzy girl and you'd say how they did it because they kind of like bubbly and friendly instead of giggling and and seeming It doesn't mean that they damn if they just did see. Yeah, and maybe you just you just been it's
been Yeah, I think I am a bit ditzy. We could say that bit. Probably a bit ditzy is definitely I've never been called that before but it's actually probably a fair
a fair description What have you been up to what's happening on
my i've i've actually said fact on a Josh with me a couple of times that I have had a few tech mishaps and we haven't actually officially launched the tech segment run by the nerd himself JJ but I wanted to just run something past because I think people will be fascinated by this and I want to see if you've ever had this issue so I was on a shoot today and heaps of interviews and lots of lots of gigabytes of footage that needed to be stored onto some hard drives and so I they bought a hard drive specifically for this job yeah and so I've taken it back to the studio where I am now and I and just before this call just before this podcast I was reformatting the drive doing what you do open it up whacked it in go and you know going to disk to disk utilities and you arrays what's on there and format for the computer anyway so I did that and I thought you know like I don't need your help for that yet Josh yeah I've managed to get past that step but i right clicked on to the hard drive on the desktop and it said available space which should say what like just under a terabyte if it's terrible because they never like purely yet one terabyte it said 380 megabytes and i did it i re for a formatted again and then I took it in next door to James and I said bro what the fact this is a one terabyte drive and it's acting like a 1999 USB and and he looked at it he said faulty that fact. Yeah,
I think it's legit. Yeah, I had an issue. I don't know if I've spoken about it on the show. But there's a service called website called Alibaba. And for people who don't know it's like you're buying stuff specifically from places like China in bulk from manufacturers and I nearly pulled the trigger back in that 2009 they pulled the trigger on about 3000 us babies
because they were a really good deal right though really inexpensive and this I was just getting a couple of other quotes before I
pulled the trigger and a guy said was like 10 times the price I got the US yet 10 times the price at least and I'm like man you are taking the pace and
Bray just so you know we've got video and Tommy's just embraces walked in with with a towel I think she's fighting on getting changed so maybe do it over on this side is probably the sizes colors of
this is what happens wow Airbnb is you get yeah interesting telephone town you
get the you get the dregs yeah but
basically long story short what turns out that was happening was these people were selling me like 32 gigabyte USB and then you went to get them and they were only going to be like a few megabytes so they basically hack them to make them look like they're 32 or even say 32 of you did get info but yeah it's uh. But I think that's what's happened with you. I think that there's probably some sort of fault hard drives of these really complex things if you think about it and yeah he's got one that's fucked basically it's
and this is a Lycee drive like there's a high quality is probably expensive This is what 202 50 yeah 200 bucks crazy I've never had this you know I've never had other than an old drive that had some old old footage on this the only time it started to get corrupt it wasn't even a full corrupt drivers I could pull off slowly some stuff just a little bit to the time but I've thankfully and I've started like a backup process and so there
was it was a anything on the drive that you
had to read news it was brand spanking new sorry the old one
knows where ministers just fucked up was that I drive
brand new just literally opened the packet and whacked it in and someone's gonna have to take this back to Office works it's such an overused but not me I'm giving it back to the but I've done them a backup just in case it's I had a I had a redundancy but I'm thankful and I need I mean what would have you just said in fact
yeah no I just would have yet I probably would have downloaded um there's some open source like Dr sort of software that you can run I'm trying to think what what they called but basically it will test to drive
an extra level but I think well
yeah I did pick up on a conspiracy theory you may call it James if you listening yes you probably
hear it came from yeah of course government didn't
know know what he did say was that he thinks that say in a USB factory or maybe like where they creating hard drives that people are putting worms onto the drives and and then so you know if you just Joe Blow get time wants to pull these little family photos all these hard drive and ongoing womb and I don't know I just have this I love the I love the term work because it just makes me Just think of the inside your computer yeah yeah all right i mean i thumbs up getting the torture
ever really happened as your mommy you kidding me?
Anyway, anything and if you have no idea what the what we're talking about. It will make no sense. But you know, you know,
is this really well just like
a torch but you actually have to look inside or is it would it be hanging out or you leave like one bites? This is what you live to love the podcast for this reason. or hide it. But we're jumping from hard drives to looking into kids assholes because he's got
actually what happened
and now I'll just quickly tell you my mom actually used to do that with my brothers toe. We
like like a regular check.
No, no, no, no. If we had one like I remember having if we have wives as if the only thing I remember is having the fake chocolate that you'd a I think like dogs ate as well probably. But we didn't have that week we had the orange tablets that were very marks and the Irish remember that chalky. But they'll kind of sweet so I kind of locked them. But it was maybe a handful of times I had worms you my childhood. And I don't remember the cutoff time of when I would not let mom looking mass. Well. So what happens is you use a torch AC is a lot
so use a torch and shine it at a bomb Hall. And it brings the wounds up
oh fuck off. I thought she was looking for them. So yeah, no, no, no. That's fucking take going though. Well,
and and like when you say when they like fucking miniscule thing like, but they do they come to the surface. And I'm not. No dude. I know. You think I'm a big widow and my family's widow for this. But I've spoken to other kids and their family has done it
like has only did homicide like to do my thing with the torch to you
know, I probably just dropped it in like I like I did I say I just threw it out there today because I was like, I just made that joke about the the worms in the torch in and and I and you knew laughed. I thought I thought your family was perpetrators of the torch in the ass. Oh, yeah.
The The only time the only thing I remember being weed was I remember my brother James
basically was chasing our dog because the dog was run away. And he got on his bike. He would have been probably
my guess is he would have been like 13 or something. 12 Yeah, exactly a night, jumped on a bike and was writing down and didn't stop and slammed into the back of a truck. And then I distinctly remember us all gathered round as a family looking at these ball sack which had a hole in it from the from the accident. But I don't know what's worse, like having a hole in your bowl sack or having two little brothers your mom and your dad or dislike gathered around having a look
like I can relate so much more now to parenting things that my mom did. Because I'm now a mother
mother with the fact I've been up since 4am. So anyway, I can relate. Because I think about the weed things that I do. You know, like even the story on episode 150. Yeah. Who's keyed like it's such a weird thing.
We got multiple emails. Yeah,
people could really relate or not relate. If you're Michelle to the
recording. Yeah. So
I'll lay the feel really, we'd like I'll feel like an idiot. Revealing the story getting now a mouse if you've ever had the torch situation. Yeah.
Have you ever let me now you guys. Man. I feel like I should be talking less this episode. Because I don't want to annoy a Mac anymore.
Now, I think you're right. But let's get back to the worm in the hard drive. So you think I mean, I can say it being a possibility that they could, but I wouldn't be wouldn't be the
like, it doesn't take gigabytes and gigabytes to funky computer. It takes a small file. Think about email attachments. So I don't think that makes any sense.
I mean, one okay. No, not not because of this hard drive. He's he just sort of segue into dude, did you know that this hat This is actually going on? And so I mean, it could just be tiny file on a hard drive. Yeah, yeah,
absolutely. Have to be
working on the inside.
Yes. I think that there was a big issue probably two years ago, where people were finding us BS in there. Um, let a box that's all I saw was exactly fighting words that they would done
though, and PayPal, plug them in. And it would just, yeah, let us little electric zap and fucking fry your whole computer.
So what's the point of that just people fighting with you. I guess it's the same as taking someone's house. But one of the things that I thought was interesting, I saw I am support a magazine called off screen mag, I'm like, one of the patrons or whatever it's called. And
they do an email newsletter. And they just did it an interested but it's just if you go to off screen mag.com, you'll be able to sign up. But they have a they have a section like just sort of where they talk about cool tech products and stuff like that. But Google has
just sort of created an advanced Protection Program, which is it says Google's strongest security for those who need it most. And what it is, is it's I am you know, two factor authentication. Yeah. So for people who don't know, two factor authentication is just like, rather than just requiring your password. The services require some other way of authorized, you know, authenticating that a chew and that could be in a few different ways, some ways maybe thanks for doing so
you might have seen like maybe the early days of two factor authentication, I remember anyway was I remember probably 15 years ago, people were having these little digital key rings that like if you had a lot of money, you could get one of these from your bank and that would sort of reset and create new hashes or whatever the fuck it is I'm white basically create that code that you need and so as long as you had that key ring you'd be able to access your bank anyway Google have just created a
USB so you can buy you can buy this USB and that becomes your two factor authentication so if you want to access Gmail or Google Apps you need the USB into computer do you think this is something you use waste the time I think I was immediately thinking as you sign this if it requires a piece of another piece of hardware that is I mean this is the thing about mobile phones any texts and that just makes so much sense well that's the annoying thing about the tech stuff is being overseas
you fucking they to you know up Ray do like re download the eye and said app or whatever it is and then we'll send you one so I've actually I ended up buying Scott credit calling the bank getting them to change my number two the number that I had in Italy so they could then send the text messages back
that's that's for long yeah I know that I've have thought about that you know you ever says if my number and it because it doesn't work? Yeah, because half the time I've relied on for like my FaceTime and I message Yeah, and it doesn't get sent to an i message it's a it's a it takes just normal text. Yeah, that's fact Well, I
mean, the thing the thing with this USB thing which is probably the stopper at the moment I'm guessing actually I haven't checked but if it's not US based say if I'm gonna need a fucking dongle for my MacBook Pro that's that's a stop FEMA like absolutely yeah why
I saw rode microphones just released a new product realized
It's a it's it's basically it's for people who are making podcasts I don't know who's using it but it's to run two microphones to lapel microphones into your mobile phone and you can record each channel seems pretty cool about it but it's like it's the same thing for you know the old iPhone point versus the new new ones like phasing out it's like I've bought road products that you can't plug in even if you've got that adapter that Apple TV I did at once and I was on a shoot luckily it was just backup audio I had someone repelled into my iPhone seven plus yeah
and it was cooked took him took him out will take I'm curious actually
how much I've been using my phone since we last year we got a session I feel like because it seems like a bit of a technology episode so let's just delve into the last time what we did was we just checked the amount of hours within a seven day period of how much we were on Instagram or the what was the most popular apps that you're using yeah so what you do is you go on an iPhone you go to I mean Michelle sorry because I made I have an iPhone you've already just tuned out
yeah so you last seven days it's like your settings battery and then you click on battery like use a battery usage last seven days last time What was I at all it was like 30 hours I was 16 I think six so yeah
all right. Can I go yeah go Instagram is my mom will be law and I'll be added Are you gonna get a prize Yeah, if if you are lower than may Instagram it's picked up since last time 7.9 hours in the last seven days right followed by YouTube 2.4 hours and Facebook 1.2 hours
I'm only 9.9 for Instagram now so I've liked it I think come that way with friends and stuff and I've been doing a lot of you know the biggest factors being driving I've been drive I drove heaps the last couple of days in France and I just obviously can't be on my phone it's the best way to disconnect
where so I'm just pulled up last month my Instagram for last month. fact I've picked it up 3.7 for me 3.7 hours and yours was 16.7 hours. Yeah, so you were both I mean you've done better dropping I've just shift the platform that I'm viewing I'm now looking at Instagram or YouTube was more for me last time so interesting.
I want to like this whole life like I've been thinking about technology specifically iPhones MacBook Pros it seems like what we're experiencing now like I wonder is like it saved my there's gonna be a big improvement at some point soon where all of this shit is just going to seem so old school like the way that people are consuming podcast like you might be in your car right now you think about like if you're in your car How are you listening a listening through Bluetooth using like an ox cable
I mean like I was saying to him like the one car that I think that like I'm not a cop person. But I think that when I own a house at that point I feel like I'm in a good enough position to buy a nice car like at the moment we have an AI 30 which is through the company but I can't justify spending more than fucking 20 grand on a car when you know we spent like 15 grand on our car like secondhand I couldn't spend any more than 20 grand unless if I can order house like anyone that's got like a $70,000 huge
like flashy you like people by the fucking SS comma don't like you type things yeah you really single it down to tried he's now
he's talking to you tried I tried
it I just feel like I made two I'm sorry. My point being that when I'm at that point I'd love to get a Tesla specific law. Yeah, because I just love the minimal dash I love the big screen. I love the idea of like if I can I also like the idea of just it driving for me as well. That's nice.
What's his name? Casey. Nice. Dad has one of those for Dr. Version. Yeah. Which is sick that like the white interior. But that does he's he's non stop filming while he's driving. So the yc is Bree Bree and I saw that the other day it's a bit Bogan i think is it I think so. It's always auto sell on 2008 to remember that car car show you probably weren't into their where was it Are we used to go mean the boys without cause go to auto sell on which was just girls in Kaneez on you know, like Christ is just on cars. I love that. You said
it was gross. Just made the poise which is a car I can't believe this. JOHN cannot blame. This is a dusting.
I didn't go to six bow as a 18 year old kid. So it six bow trumped the grossest.
Well. You know your your strip up. I mean, not that came after. But what what is what is sex by like? Is it a bit filthy?
Ah, yeah. Yes. It's good. I mean, half the people are there just as a joke? Yeah. And then the other half are they because they actually who just want to pick up a whip and go home and beat their partner. Yeah. And, and that's what they're into.
And so it is each their own. But it does it that's I don't think that's like, I don't see a problem with that at all. I think it's, it's more the,
there's like a vibe that goes with it. Which I'm not sure about. Like, I think people were who were just like vegan doing their thing. Whatever. But I don't know. I wonder. I think like, the actual engine is the industry around it. That I'm not sure. It's like the advertising the same thing I feel with like, wiping like when I see like, like a Viking convention or even like marijuana convention. It's just got like, Las Vegas vibes. Yeah. Well,
you get the true subculture coming out. If you go into like a you know BDS em. I haven't been to one, but like, Michelle. Michelle could tell us a bit about that stuff. But that's it. Yeah. Well, I
didn't have an issue with any of that stuff. It's the industries around it that make it a bit fucking like. I mean, I'd be I'd be curious to ask Michelle about that which is ease
when you're in that scene is maybe a little bit like the like I watched Hannah, Gatsby's
Netflix special is gone blank on the name.
No. Not a minute. Yeah.
So that when it no
brains are what's Hannah, Gatsby's
comedy special cold what's for dinner result? What did I can hear me Linda? What do you call that? This is what Google is for. net. NET NET. Thank you. Man. That That's right. Say thank you to myself. Anyway, she talks about how the like watching Mardi Gras the she was talking about how like guy culture is like very out there and she was sort of talking about the fact that she was like where do all the introverted guys go yeah so I do wonder about that where it's like within these cultures they subcultures is sex just the loud obnoxious version the song reality of what they are so they just this just reminded me Have you heard of is a Picasso with a dude that paints because his penis or no and so he's called prick so Picasa get it yeah I got any I it was the most said so when I was working on the Matt Matt till his radio show yeah
kiss FM make creating all the digital content video stuff this is probably three and a half years ago now he came in and was doing a portrait of Matt Tilly and I was all I had to film it. And I and it was it was so sad It was so we and you know, like you've been in situations we filming stuff sounds like you've got a bit of a safety blanket, which is the camera and you didn't do anything. And so I actually made quite a good video out of it. But I but like you fully saying this the big he's got you have any rules. I had a when I was working at the radio station. I mean, for people who aren't aware radio stations can be very radio Stan tea. I remember we did a stunt where FIFA Fifi one of the hosts of the show was in a blackout challenge, basically where she takes off a blindfold and she's in a situation and you have
to do whatever sort of there. And she was in a Brazilian butterfly, which is like a place to get waxes and stuff. And she had to give someone a Brazilian wax. And so it was a chick. And so what they did was they're like, okay, we'll get a female to film it. And so the brief was for the females, like trying to, like avoid the parts or whatever, because it'll make it easier to edit it together. What she didn't realize was, that was a fucking moron. So I saw this and it's like, right across. So you just say everything. And so I remember being instructed to Hey, Josh, we need to blur out that whole shot. But do you mind just doing it a bit lighter when everyone goes home? So you don't have that on your screen? just outright just really isn't it?
And and you can fully say yeah,
it should say I should say it. So yeah, the blurring was an important element to that. But I wonder what even fly to think that that sort of content would even fly I mean, that was 2012.
I think that would fly today.
Yes. I mean, what you say what I say now there's only so many ideas Yeah, you can have
well I'm literally saying so many like having been in radio only for a year. You just say the same shit recycled over and over again. The classic one is the co host the female co host gets the male co host to wear pregnant belly and they get from a company that comes in I'm sure that this is the company's only industry is dealing with radio stations that want to do this stunt but they basically put these electric things Shockers on the give you the feeling of contractual
That's right. I didn't didn't Jules land to have this. Yeah,
Jews did it. But I've seen like half a dozen shows. Seems like almost oh my god I filmed at the same way this is this is crazy. I guess that that's the that's the only concern I have with doing this show is it's just like, I don't want to pander to any of that shit. like doing any certainty. Shit. I mean, I know. I know. We did a live show from Krispy Kreme that I stand by that being a fucking great idea. But yeah, you don't want to, you know, what is it rehashing the same shit yeah, yeah,
I mean stuff works there is there is a point at which stuff works but I think when you have a show like ours where we can push the envelope slightly not to just offend people but to do something that will potentially flop which is where we'll probably find some brilliant and it's I heard on the radio this morning on the way to work on the way to work here it was and I thought it was clever in its simplicity. And it was this woman had lived in this house for 16 years and still didn't know the next door neighbor's name and so the radio show called found her number they said oh we found in the white page whatever they found the number and called and they had to guess before they called what her name was and then they got him they said she said hello and then based on what a voice sounded like they just said a name and then she said oh no that's not No one leaves he that night and then so I've spent this week just like taking people's guesses and working out what a name
and they never allowed to ask her name though I was wise I mean it's pretty funny
i get i get that being pretty funny the interested simple I do enjoy just keeping up to date with radio stuff like as we've talked about it's like this little world in itself and I listened to the radio randomly podcast which is done by a radio guy in Australia called Gandhi and shout out
to Gandhi takes with him yesterday
I really just the just the radio so Cujo continues have an ongoing fees are really Wait, where'd you make Gandhi? Yeah, in
the rainbow circle jerk
to do at least got his name when you were. Yeah, I did. I did. Now he interviewed um, Ben and Liam, who were these two daughters doing Triple J breakfast. And I have never I've listened to probably less than a single song of Triple J. That's how much Triple J I've listened to in my life.
And it wouldn't have been a full song because I'm pretty sure when I put it on it with some tough, tough track that went to eight minutes. I think I probably cut out in three minutes 30 but it was fascinating hearing those guys who started on community radio and how fucked up it was them going on to Triple J and just how much they would get slammed and they they sort of became even they kept became well known for doing the thing last year on are you okay day which is all about mental house where one of the guys sort of did a bit of a monologue about his experience and how fucking people to me like hipsters doing death threats because they have favorite Triple J breakfast has changed this shit.
And they probably vegan that are against killing animals. Yeah,
the lives of human it's a that I've got there on the SS. Huge, and they just angry about payments. And they're letting it out on a Triple J
classic. And I'm gonna hit to a dinner tonight. But a lovely, I've actually enjoyed having a conversation with someone who sounds slightly more like Josh. Dad. Yeah.
It's still sound check. I still feel like I am yet for whatever reason today, I've woken up. Still not feeling great. But thank you. For all the MS. Word of the Day comes from quick Russkies and the word is he ready for it. Yeah, it is efficacy. He said. My boss used to say this to me all the time. When I started my first job. You could say that if it is you could say this parent in after all these years in a sentence is Josh idea. You to institute and efficacy What do you think it means?
Something around the set. It'd be like the morals of a business
the morals around it might be a descriptive word for
a set of values and morals. That's what I'm going with. I thought
like efficiency or something. Like I sort of went in that light. Yeah, yeah.
Well, it could be. Yeah, like you we stand for my best value is efficiency or something. And so anyway, what is it
capacity for producing a desired result or effect effectiveness? Yes. So it's like, effectiveness efficacy. Yeah, it's a talk show. Also, thanks to Samantha. She's She's currently at episode I think, like 105, so she'll probably hear this in about 2022, but he does that. Thank you, Sam, for listening. We appreciate and enjoy. You're a male co Thanks, everyone. We'll see you tomorrow for another episode. Catch up.
