It's the daily Talk Show Episode 480, 20 away before the big 500 Happy Wednesday night. Yeah, we did say last week that on Wednesday we were going to have a form that you could fill out to join us for Episode 500. Yeah, we come in tomorrow. I mean Hayden Dibs just joined our live feed. Yeah. 20 days until you tap. Very true yet Hayden Dube
offered up his arm to be tattooed with the daily talk show. So we will be taking him up on that offer p pressure on now. I want to just cancel that phone call. This is the
it would have just frozen pause. Okay, we're back with
phone calls coming through. It's all right. Don't be fazed by it baby. P pressure. Could there be any chance that there is enough peer pressure that you
get a tattoo on the night of our 500th episode.
I don't know depends if 97 did I wouldn't I mean you never had enough pressure to do drugs yeah no never never never done heroin never done cocaine good good good ever done marijuana or even just feel like I'm the type of guy to have a severe panic attack. So I probably would be Funny or Die but you just have a panic attack because you had too many brownies one thing that I've been having wasn't even wasn't even what happened if you
know it's just high level anxiety is just just irrational anxiety when you're having irritable it's normal people call people on the phone what would you do? No, no, you just all in your head. I was convinced that my ex girlfriend was getting all these texts from some guy but I think she XEY
Oh my gosh, she's talking to me. Turns out she was. So it was, it was still hyper anxiety because I'd bake these cookies and then I gave them to all these people at my house. And then it just completely ruined a whole heap of the people down the back and I went down at one point and I had this moment where I walk down I was like, there on the couch and one of them looks up it means is, what have you done to us? And at that moment, he was just high and my heart was just going
back to my room were you worried that you'd actually done something like something was in it like rat poison is nothing you know, is it was just marijuana made into into butter. And then the butter was then used into with into a cookie mixture. And it's just a different feeling. As to smoking marijuana is different. It tasted a bit shit, but it was still tasty. It's still had sugar. Yeah, but I just got something completely different to that either. It does something completely differently. If you talk
Butter I decided to just go with. We went for a cheap coffee option at the service station said to get the $1 fix before today we've been working all day we've been working with Mark shank from anecdote. His podcast which you What did you call it the other day? I called it brand storytelling. It's called anecdotally speaking speaking, anyway, but we did get you 97 to do a coffee order. I know we don't send you out to get coffee. How was that experience for you? I actually asked the wrong person at the counter.
So I literally went up and I just asked the barista
Yeah, I walked in. I was like, Oh yeah, I've got the orders like memorise I had the first two I had the strong three quarter latte and then the large flat white and I didn't know you'll want to remember it now.
It's a and large, strong almond milk or something like that. Yeah, got it that moda
You say you ask the barista yeah so I just got into the kitchen and asked the guy
can I place an order in pie with you? And so the lady at the register she's like, come over here sounds okay. And the worst thing is repeat the order but by that time I was so like rattled I was just looking at my phone because I had to read the order of the
worst thing was he was in full brand as a tire the daily talk show. Bring up the daily talk show. No.
That's, that's good. I appreciate it. As soon as I sent him off. When I said all you can go now if you can't be bothered going, are you 79 you can go to the coffee place that's really close. And because he didn't know exactly where I was pointing, he decided he couldn't. He's the coffee was called but the Tommy got back.
And suburban update.
The other morning.
We got our visas for the USA. Yeah, just to reiterate, we now are officially
allowed to enter the USA after and I visa which is a basically a journalist visa.
So I left my house and I forgot something. And I got halfway to Mason's joint and I was like to father turn back. Okay going, and I got him and then I was like what was quickly go back I need to get my my cards. So it's my wallet. So I just carry a bunch of cards and got back. The garage door was open. I'd forgot so I was like so lucky that I was going to be gone until 6pm that night, so you must have just been so rattled that you're forgetting forgotten all those different things. Yeah, yeah. I normally go full circle to why I think it's been happening. But first.
First, the suburban update. First the suburb and I've
noticed a basketball with Michelle. Yeah, shot a few hoops.
How's it has that guy
Hey good. I haven't seen too much lately. I just say Hi buddy likes to run mention the podcast now I haven't mentioned the podcast. Okay. I live next to a famous basketball player from back in the day anyway. driving on the highway in Melbourne. What is the m 333?
It's the freeway. What's the difference between freeway? What's the difference between freeway and a highway? freeway and a highway? Good point a highway like in the pain highway is running between houses. A freeway is some way separate too. So there's no houses it's like barricade. It's like barricaded off. It's strictly it's not incremental. Yeah, what is it free from anything else? that's what that's what I'm kind of fun fact about it. My auntie used to live out in Montana Albus new where Gemma watts lives and my brother and I played on the M three before it was open. So like they hadn't built it all the way out. And so my brother and I this
This vacant freeway. It's huge, and we're throwing stones and running around and like climbing on shit. This was before that opened up the f3 this was so when like the city link first came like the tunnel when they opened the Burnley tunnel. Oh yeah, it was huge, huge. I remember the first time just holding my breath because I said you know it's underwater.
going old school is like holding you. People have different things. Amy when she goes past
what he called a cemetery. It's a fingering belly button and holding the breath so the spirits don't come at you.
Different way for you and a highway you can have crossings and intersections on a highway. Okay, so they have to have on ramps and off ramps on a freeway. So it's a freeway coming down the freeway what I've realised is make so many people drive by themselves. So many people. very inefficient. It's massively inefficient. It's fucking ridiculous. I look around and I've only
You just realise that there's the line on the far right, the transit line to take away if you've got more than one person, if you've got a passenger, you can go in that line. So I mean that just honing pass. So many people don't. Unbelievable. Anyway, we've got no choice because we got one car, I'm sure I'd be that gronk driving to work early with him a Tesla by myself with my eyes closed, but I'm, so I'm coming down this morning. Lyft a bit late. And it got a bit of traffic, as it sort of bottlenecks into huddle straight, the exit. I look up and it's pouring rain, and there's an overpass, and I say these people standing up there. I don't like saying people above the overpass because I was a young gronk speeding on cars. never threw rocks just bad. But it's still bad.
Anyway, wasn't your workout newer ones? Yeah, there were protesters. So is that the ones that when you pointed out when we drove past I must read more yet new ones. So these were people they protest
Or they just had signs like big sheets with like, it's all about the east west link. So they're trying to build a tunnel from the end of the three under the city or something. So people don't want it. People don't want it. And so there was these people in pouring rain in trench coats, just waving at the slow moving traffic. And what do you think about protests? 97 Have you ever been in a protest? None have been in a protest. I mean, it's as cool as going to Coachella now projects
around the that the hard thing is with them,
you don't get much action out of them. You know, like it's amazing that you've got all these people the climate strikes and marching and stuff that nothing really comes of it. You know what I mean? Like there's just an inquiry into something and nothing happens. Is that what so can you just quickly
would you calling them straight
What do you call it? strikes protests protests that have led to change see that there might be like a top list of like so action of a protest has actually created some huge change. I guess the question like what are they specifically asking for?
I mean, be interesting to know who, who at the event understands that. So at a senior level, I mean, I've been the man to poo poo things like this in the past have you ever been in a protest before? No, never. Never I've never by now I don't feel like I it's it's probably the I see people doing i don't know i don't not drawn to it not drawn to go away cowards. Like, maybe, maybe. And so my thinking has probably always been along the lines of what change would I ever make. But I do understand that that he's also throwing out the get behind something and and show your passion towards something. So that's why I don't think it's
Good. I mean it's it's interesting saying like the ones with the protests in the city where people are fucking sitting in the middle of the Flinders Street and you're actually all these people trying to get towards a bit naughty it's just fact them over Yeah. But then does it bring change this is it's it's not as simple as sit in the middle of the road makes it Jackie believed in something like really hardcore like me because the thing is like climate change and all that sort of thing. I obviously believe that it's all happening. Do I necessarily believe that the like, I wonder if I was protesting would make doing this thing. move the needle on that stuff. That's the bit that I'm not not sure on. But imagine if you're really passionate about something that you could that's more tangible than you think. Like, I feel like if it was something where it's like, okay, we want to stop this road or whatever, if you if you do it like a stop the development of a road then that's a real easy, tangible thing like either happens or it doesn't
happened. Oh, so we're Amy's mom lives up in Sydney, New South Wales outside of Sydney about an hour.
There's a town called Windsor. And Windsor has a bridge. And
basically it was like all through road where tracks would, you know, fly through, you did a video on a video on it. And so every time I went up there like a couple of years in a row, I'd see this tent set up and I was always around Christmas. And I was fascinated by these people and their efforts. At always being at this place. I found out that they've been protesting for multiple, multiple years, maybe like four or five years ago in the video, like 24, seven. They've been protesting. So there was someone at that place, Christmas, Easter, New Year's Eve, every single moment because if they left, they couldn't come back again. It would be a Lego setback that had to hold the post interesting and so I will go over and just have a sort of quiet chat to the
These people and they'll be like, yeah, we haven't. We haven't left. We haven't left since we got here. And yeah, we're not going anyway. sad thing is, like move the mountain. They built the bridge. They're building the bridge anyway. So knowing all of that effort, all of that effort, and we're still trying nice seven for something. Yeah, the the protests that have actually created the change in the world. There are a bunch of them around asking like dictators and stuff. That's like based in Serbia revolution, yes, Serbia and Egypt as well. The successful ones. And then there's also there's one here that they mentioned that all the
backlash around Trump's equal to executive order to get rid of asylum seekers or whatever, when he first came into power, apparently that that helped with allowing visa holders to stay in the country. But yeah, I've been thinking more about news lately. How is getting rid of subscriptions, got rid of papers, subscriptions
Yeah, I've removed the news function from my swap to the what I never lost the news function on like the iPhone thing the idea that they just sort of spit you random news articles that aren't like horrible it's all just like babies died in a damn accident. Yeah, constantly I just was like fact, maybe as the same notification you just had to clear it
Yeah. Me days in a row can that happen?
No but i i really bought the New York Times subscription because I was viewing an article and then it would I got to like the paywall bit where it's like you've reached the amount of times that you can view New York Times I think you get like 10 free articles on your phone or your phone. But then so now I've I feel like I need to get my money's worth. So I'm going to type the New York Times website each day. And is this is this American based news or is this world news new york time was that was the
is a What do they call it? They've got a bureau in Sydney. So they've got Australia's and there's even like, I went down a massive rabbit hole. There's like a journalist in Melbourne who work for the New York Times. And so
yeah, but I was just wondering, I'm like, okay, like, maybe there's certain areas of news, because like all of you, older news, a bit depressing. Of course, certain news may be enlightening. The other thing I realised, I don't know if this is a widely held belief or not, but reading an article, it seems like they just need to make them what like, I'm never want to read like, I never used to read an article from start to finish and I would always be hard on myself. I'm like, Josh, I can stick to anything. That's true. And so I the article. Yeah. And so I, but I've started reading to the end. That's good. The thing is that I feel like once you're about halfway through the article, they're just saying the same shit in a different way. Yeah. So you think
They riding them accounting for all the people that drop off in the first little bit. Yeah. So you're trying to eat trying to deliver as much information up top, and then just sort of just re shuffle a bit down the bottom. Yeah, I was wondering that. But so I did start to think I'm like, I wonder what categories and if we've got the Instagram at live stream, if there's certain categories that people are going to I'm curious as to like the ones that are less depressing or to get a better scope of the new I think most young people just don't go to the news anymore. Like it they they're following I mean, technically pedestrian TV junkie, these are the the news advice and become a news out a new source, which then they're just like, you see how it's all you see how, what's current and what's hip and how to talk like all these, these news outlets, trying to talk to the young people. What is 97 smiling like that?
We just got a message from Gemma. That a really good way to get to the very end of a book is to write it out by hand. What a great way. It's. It's pretty great. Well, I did a mouse Seth, yesterday, right back signed, the book was still coming. So could you say that to 19? Please? Did you actually say that I did a PS did you do? I said PS it's taken me a while but the book still cut my hobbies confused. And this is like, you know, the guy that
told me my wife's bakery was a What did
you say? Something like that being a pain in the eye that Yeah, he was the webmaster for his wife's bakery and he says, you know, those shitty little jobs you gotta do? Yeah, that's right. I did say that. The other thing I've been thinking I think that on the same the same vein is doing writing articles. I'm thinking about picking up twitter again. And then a bad idea. Do you think well if we I mean, missing it seven, went into Twitter and enormous had an
breakdown. Yeah. How about too much shit on there? You'll love this. You know how you can.
Some people will they'll write a tweet and over a few tweets, yes. And they can't fit it in. So they're doing, you know, Trump does it all the one for two or four, three or four and make Dr. Jason Fox did a tweet the other day yesterday. And he writes a tweet and this is zero of 75.
Jason has taken what could be considered an essay, and no Joe, I thought it was a joke. I thought that's funny. I click through how scrolling is rate like writing a medium article. It was hilarious. I mean, some people connect with that there's a few people have got famous from doing a thread of tweets. I remember I used to do it when I was working in Bartow. I was working with Carlos and would put together this like 10 tips for startups or whatever. Yeah. And so I would go with him and I would come up with the 10 tweets and then we put them in buffer, and then every single day we would put out
Yeah, talking about buffer.
We started doing scheduling some posts. That was through the Instagram app. Was it a Facebook app or whatever? Yeah. Create a studio. I think it's gone. Yeah. And we had some issues with sinking sinking. Yeah, with some of the videos going out of sync. This is a warning for people now it was just an interesting fact. buffer store that that did you say this? So the ML Yeah. buffer has just released the ability to share your storeys Yeah, I've seen that that's been I mean, that's a big Graham has as well social really had it for years. They've got a thing that most of these don't have is IG TV and the IJTV the ones that are going out of sync bad and so they just restricted it they probably don't let anyone any third party do the RJ TV thing so on this if we're just talking social media bit so the the Twitter thing finished the book first. It's a lot of time well, so yeah, what is the I think any of these things writing a blog, it'd be like if you said I want to
Writing book you're going to enjoy writing to do the blog. I love writing. Yeah, but I think there's probably it's time spent. I think you love writing write more, as in write more for your blog that you will Yeah. Is there something at the start of the year? You think you should I mean, sticking to anything we talked about yesterday, it's like consistency is,
if not the hack for most things. And so if you wrote every morning and actually publish something, yeah, I mean, pay does it if it's something there's something interesting about the idea of
just like the OG Twitter like, not like putting out like links and all that sort of thing. But just doing like, sort of the standard. I just had this thought write a tweet. Yeah, I mean, who are the people that do these things and do it well, Jim doesn't Gemma Yeah, she's she's been doing love Island. I don't watch love Island, which is constantly doing tweets, which hashtag love Island. Yeah. I think for any of these things, don't
Too many things on
Twitter is too much for me at the moment hundred percent we got so much other stuff to do, what other what thing would you prefer? software just doing a bit of a redesign of my time spent because I've just updated my iPad I've actually taken that's been we've been using it only for Spotify in the office. I've since
taken it back into my possession. I take it home during the evenings now. And so I've started rather than I was struggling with the whole no phones in bed. So I've now doing no phones in bed but just an iPhone, but I just have my iPad. You just got the bigger version of your phone but I mean, you'll find the big one to Fox. Yeah, but I don't have I don't have Instagram on my iPad. So yeah, that's Isn't it crazy that they don't have an Instagram app for iPad? Like it's it race sizes the app as it's disgusting. Yeah, yeah. And sorry, my dad's I found everything
is live and so I do you know so if I'm using my iPad it's YouTube New York time Yeah. And a tiny bit of Twitter I think it's rapidly donate I just need to there's a bunch of books that I need to write Yeah, yeah Where's your time better spent one thing I've been fucking up and it's I think why I left the garage open it's it's what gives me the anxiety in the morning is chasing my tail chasing your tail in the morning
this thing was
you have a child
chasing your tail meaning getting up a little lighter than you should definitely which then brings everything forward so you end up if the daylight saving thing so in melded with has it fucking it's a night this was happening before daylight so we need to start happening a couple of weeks ago, and I know that I just need to get out of bed. So the being in bed is the problem. Once your alarm goes off, getting out of the bed is the first step.
Because if you just meditate in bed and then you're like, oh, that was nice. And now go back to sleep. Well this is the problem that I like even this morning because I've been getting in the later I think that the daylight savings has something to do with it because
but no they just went to bed the same time and you only make an issue if no No, no, I left the office at like nine o'clock I'm going to bed at like 11 you tired? Yes, you tiger and the thing is I
breed goes to the gym in the morning and she's been bringing me coffee and and so I wake up and it's like the opposite of you know, like Miranda Kerr in the morning. She has a lemon water and stuff. You're just straight. Right to like fucking Yeah. Cracking lips. I'm sorry, dude. Like, it doesn't matter how much water I drink at the moment because the amount of coffee that I'm having. I actually can't get clear peace at the moment. Impossible. Yeah, it's like it's like a diuretic. So I was constantly you know what I mean? So this was a bad idea at 4pm Yeah.
Definitely but there's the morning thing.
You because of Bodie, and I might. So my my routine is to get up and go downstairs and make the smoothie.
He gets up anywhere from sort of 630 to seven does he help himself up now? He's started leaning over and turning the light on. So I've gone into his room some mornings and he's
late because he might have got up and, and especially when he's napping in the day because he's a bit more restless. He'll turn the light on, because he can reach it. So how long until he gets himself up? I don't know he he's big enough now that he could get out of the, of the caught by himself. Once he got a position he got a footing and he's like he realised what he was about to do and flick these guys push these foot off. So you don't want him to be able to do it now because then you wake up and he will climb the fence and he'll come into mommy and daddy's room. And so if he gets the if he wakes up in the middle of the night he like, I could get him dead or have you thought about as he
slept in your bed? Not?
Yes, he slept in our bed for the first year of his life. But then we got him out of the bed. Because we need some peace and quiet and he but he's become a Wrigley worm like he can't. If he sleeps in the middle, he will turn upside down and put his legs on the face. Do you remember when you were a kid? Did you sleep in your parents but the big bed? I loved it. I swarm
out of my dad, of course. I mean when you're 15 it's fucking
Richard now but I used to get into mommy and daddy's bed. The big bed? Do you remember a time when you remember a time when you think a mom and daddy mommy and daddy's bed? Have it? Do you remember a time that ever feeling like you're too old for saying Mommy, like was never said mommy. You never said mommy never said mommy. I just remember when I had the filter within that mommy you couldn't say mommy.
You know like it was like
You were you weren't cool. Did you ever say mommy
little bit? You have a Do you remember when it's like getting dropped off at school? You don't want to be dropped off at the front. You want a bit fucking bit of room so you can just want to
want to walk? Yeah, I mean, I just didn't want to be brought down by me mommy.
We had a sick car. We had a an SS Commodore. It was gold Tiger coloured. Yeah. And so
to help build in that whole school to classic thing of like, your parents aren't cool anymore. And so I remember the kids that would call their parents mommy. And such a funny thing, but I still remember the feeling of being like a man. You're not cool. Did you ever I said something pretty yuck. What would you say? I you know, when people used to call stuff gay back in the day, like when we were young kids like me know what being gay is being say everything's guy. Might as different that was a 90 thing wasn't shown IDs. I mean, I don't think
kids are gonna say that stuff. Like now. Yeah.
were more woke
existence now. And 97 did you sleep in your parents bed?
A little bit? I think I remember coming in in the morning, I think occasionally. Yeah. We had like, from a pretty young age we like we have had the same bed for like ages. And so
racecar bed yeah
rocket Red Rock mom and dad got like a king singles for all of us. And so we've just rich family. Yeah, yeah and and so we've just we've just had those for ages and so i think i don't i don't know if we win. How we went from like it caught to maybe something else and then to the king single but you're in a king single right now. Now also, I had a king single up until like last year and then I moved downstairs and we've got a spare bed down there. So I've got like it
Queen now I think it is Do you ever sleep in your own bed? Now? It's upstairs. Why are you sleeping? These are bed it's all bed. That's my old room. It's like it because I moved. I used to have a bedroom turned into a gym or something or what now so
now we've just got a fair point. No so we've kept it as we've kept it as a spare bedroom. So if you have any of the stuff in there
my bedside tables in there anything in the bedside drones now my all the wardrobe is just filled with shit old like cables and like, just when I had had an obsession with like networking, like real fucking nerdy stuff, Ethernet code, yeah. All that's in there. Yeah.
Is there anything that you're gonna have to bring when you go away when you travel, any competitors anything that you any blank ease, and
oh my god, this kid that we grew up with
That used to say mommy a lot. And he also used to have these Blinky and he like here blank. He was up until grade four so interesting blank. He's like a little blank. He needs Sacchi, Sam
like I see the cuteness in a baby that does this stuff. And I see how my empathy for like Bodie and how much I care about him and like if you wanted to continue doing that stuff, like you wouldn't think it but when you're a young kid and you see someone else you sort of get a bit savage on them. You're too old for that. And so anyway, my man you would have a main key because I had two older brothers are all main we're all main. But you know, good kids. Anyway, this storey doesn't pan this that well. We threw a bit of he's blanking on the fire
Frankie Oh cuz he was like getting tested and it was like he's
we throw a bit of the blank yup the fire
I lost my my favourite team.
DB we lost on a plane as we're flying to New Zealand. Yeah. And I was just like, I was crying for like, days just Oh, that. Yeah, I mean, as a parent you, you hope that your kid doesn't have some kind of survival toy or thing like a survival toy. Like it's literally like the thing that
is the word so he like a teddy bear it literally just has 14 he becomes obsessed with one and then he's like he's over all of them at the moment. He tracks, tracks everything but he doesn't even have a favourite track. He's whatever. And so you hope because some kids just you know it's there. It's a safety Yeah. Yeah, I do. I remember when I was a kid when I was three years old, and we were moving your three Yeah. And we went to borrow and heads for a bonehead. Yeah. For a
like a my cousins had like a what's it called caravan and I left my sunglasses there.
Then during the time when we got back, and before I got my sunglasses again, I had my eyes tested and I needed glasses. And so I remember being told that I wouldn't be able to wear my sunglasses.
button. So sad. Did you know your eyesight was shot back then or now? No. I don't think you must like it must be that thing. I remember having my hearing tested as well. Mom was so pissed off because she would yell at me about things I'm I can
be playing PlayStation ignoring the fuck out of it. I can't hear anything. When to the fucking ear an eye doctor or whatever it is. Yeah, perfect hearing.
Selected he literally I remember the doctor said he had to submit a selective hearing. Anyway the thing that I want to start doing from tomorrow, here we go. He's up out of bed at 545 every morning
It's good because I am a you started the before 646 whatever that well I bought the fucking straight
told me to get the app, and I just haven't been doing it but it's, there's so much power in it because the thing is it's so easy. My big one is, I reckon this could be something guys, no phone calls before we get into work, because the thing is I talked to you
the reason why I take so fucking long is because you and I get on the blower at 730 and I haven't even gotten the fucking shower yet. And so we talked for half an hour, and then it's eight o'clock and then brain aids the bathroom and baby needs to do a dump. And so as in May, and so in fact that with all the timing, you know what I mean? We only have one bathroom. You don't realise how good two bathrooms is. You can do the sort of dumping one bathroom shower and the other Yeah, what would James he was in the shower when it was like my shit. You know my shower time like I might go up and have a shower.
What time's your shower? Oh, and you get 20 minutes, right? Your animals it's it's come down at nighttime. It's like 20 minutes. Yeah, he had night time. Nothing he does a morning one too. Yeah. absolute privilege. Yeah. No but like it just it rattled me because James he was in the shower and does I love 20 minutes and he doesn't have time to put timer and he's
trying to find the tone of my voice anyway. Sorry.
Your hair's actually looking more time than I used to purple shampoo. Okay, yeah. Go on. Sorry. Yeah, well, so dad and James were in the shower. together different channels, different shows. Or the same time. You guys must have some decent hot water going. Yeah, well, when I hopped in, there was no hot water. But there was enough. That same time. Yeah, yeah. Well, so mom had a shower as well. So dad had one Janssen one and mom had one. And so there was just absolutely not. Um, so what do you do in that scenario? Cold jail. It's pretty depressing. Like I wasn't happy. Yeah, but it's good. I think
cold showers. It's fine if you want to do it but when you don't want to do it and you just want it to have it nice warm Yeah, it's hot. I've been doing like this game where I go see how hot I put it on for hot and all my wait until it starts to feel like hot blistering sort of thing. And I put it straight to cold. And so it's like extreme temperature shifts. Anyway, I'm getting up at 545 That way I can get the smoothies and everything down right Gemma just said she's gonna be outside the front of us with a megaphone at 545 don't wake up my son.
You've defeated the purpose of getting out because I realised if if Bodie wakes up, it's all out the window. Like it's just another thing being prepared before baby wakes up. Yeah, this is brace life. She has to be prepared with babies coffee, done the exercise, get home and handing the coffee. I have to get the smoothie ready. So when Bodie wakes up, I hand him the bottle. You know what the funny thing is this morning. So Bry like I sort of woke up at like, five past seven
I look on find friends. I've changed the name of the app. I don't know if you've seen that on iOS 13 fine. Find my. Did you update iOS today? Yeah. Okay. Why? I don't know. They just I was just reading an article on it this morning. What are they saying? It's just a bit buggy. Oh, yeah, but it's probably like all the phones can't handle the new 11 as well as buggy. Definitely not enough. But anyway, they. I looked on find friends saw that Bry was nearly home because I was excited. I thought maybe should have a coffee for me.
When she came in, I said our morning and my Did you get coffee? And she was like, no.
Luckily, I didn't blow up.
Because she did have one. It was I guess it was a test. She was like, nine I didn't get one or two and then like two minutes later, she came he got you one. And she was like, she was like you just being ungrateful. You should not.
But I do remember when I was a kid. There was a at the surf shop. There was a Vulcan
Event brand Vulcan 97 I'll school welcome chanting sir Good brand Yeah, anyway they did it came look up Vulcan leather wristband. So there was a leather wristband probably 10 centimetres with Yeah. And thick and it just had to like sort of clip buttons, a piece of leather with it and it was just sort of accessories. Yeah huge I used to be right into the accessories really this is like to get into like the Bali like dying to Bali and having so many. Oh yeah, yeah, different. I would actually love to do that again. Oh, you know what I can imagine Gemma watts, that you may have been one of those gals who would get the inside of the coke bottle and the coke lead and you'd pull it out and then you buy it and there's like you'd have like this plastic agreement and you'd stretch it slowly. And it will break if you stretch too hard, but you can get it to be a respect. And like all heaps of girls in my school had a whole heap
them now Now a few that actually went a bit further, which may also be the gym category of getting VB stubby plastic rings and carrying them out and wearing them. I just remembered me bands. Yeah Remember that?
You get them from crazy Clint crazy clint the dirty our boss that you know crazy claim that was it like cleans it was clean tequila cup crazy cleanse. Would you also buy shit like the beanie babies? No, that was it. What's new? Well, yeah, but you know those those fact me back? I think this was the version of the one that you wouldn't show the I mean, this is outrageous because you're like 13 years old. And the idea was also the same that you broke it for people who don't know the idea with the fact that those were, you know, popular in our fucking when my third shame. The idea was there, I'm fucking
if you broke someone's factory band, you had to have sex, the best thing you want.
Everyone's virgins at that point. Yeah, as in now I'm actually having sex. It's complete bullshit. But it's also I just assume that you were not having sex. When did you lose your virginity?
50 Well do what was the specific you don't want to go into? Definitely.
still young still? Yeah. 15 months. Hold out
to what age
17 is good. 718 like above like a year 11 sort of a good vibe. Because if you need some, if you're from up from BC if you're a 40 year old version, so good. Yeah. So good. Doesn't matter. But anyway, so the Vulcan the Vulcan wrist, the leather wrist? Yeah, yeah. And you just made sure you got the really tough one because you didn't want anyone to fact
it was back in this band. It wasn't a factory band. It was just like an accessory. That black ones affect me bands. Yes, correct. The coloured ones. Each represent something different or
Who told you this game Gemma Gemma? It's very true who came up with me man? I mean it's a way in which the same young boys that are yelling gay and everything to be honest but I remember this is I'm people were extremely sexually What are you laughing at? I've just found the list of what all the colours represent. Okay, well we'll get to that in a sec but just very quickly. I Yeah, we do. But I remember
I remember being 14 and like things were very sexually charged or 14 Yeah, I remember a girl saying to me she said my parents are why
you can come over and we can do whatever you want.
And then she she said I was it you know it was a storey and then
keep doing not define on the podcast place where she was your girlfriend. It wasn't really wasn't really sure it was a girl named Cali. Okay. I haven't said the last time so we should be I can't
Whenever said truth is last night, turns out that she actually got who said this Cali ended up.
I had a employee for a short period of time. I was actually a contractor was doing some work. And he was moving out of his place and he was having all of this pain in the ass with the property manager. And then I saw that I'm like, hang on a sec, those Cali and so she's doing that now. She's a property manager. But anyway, we've really
gone past her area and
just know that she was lovely. We dated for a short period of time.
No, but she did say she said, My parents are going away. You can come over we can do anything. And she said if it makes you feel better, because I was like, I like it. I think it'd be a bit sass. Like, you know, just me going over to some your own site. We can invite
two other people and they can go into another room. I was 14
didn't even have pubes. I was absolutely scared shirtless. On the Vulcan band. The
it was for Christmas I really wanted for Christmas. It was from like a surf shop member and surf shops a huge every every shopping centre had a surf shop. And I thought it was like 2020 bucks. I was like, Mom had been saying you can get for Christmas. And I thought it's low enough level they'll definitely get it. Christmas came around and
opened up different things. No respond. And I asked them, I said, Oh, we didn't know that's what you wanted. And I absolutely fucking cracked it. I was like, screaming I was in hysterics and the worst thing was there my brother Jake comes out with the wristband after I had just blown up. And so they got exactly what they wanted. You know what I revealed? How much were fucking us all I was I didn't
have that done to me much from people in my life? Well, it's because I wonder if they do it to you because they know that that's the kind of reaction you get the person that gives the reaction as I'm out. I didn't get your coffee and then bring it out or go to a coffee is that person that you really? You know what they'll give you? Why is everyone to only mail with
trolls? Geez, I
know, because my point is the only time she tells me that shit is if I do it to her. She gets me back.
And so my point is, it's you dude. right brain was annoyed at something that I did the other week. It was so far. This is such a fight like her and I were laughing about it. afterwards. She had a serious conversation. She sits down with me and she's like, so you're probably wondering why I haven't been that intimate this week. I just thought, What do you mean this way? Like it's quite a being in a long term relationship. Yeah. It's just a part of a virgin.
Not Jackie. Jackie was it
It was a quite a funny thing to say Happy wife happy life.
But yeah, I thought she I think she said on and I bring this up on the podcast
see why she trolls him all the time. Anyway, so yeah, that was a fun storey. What have you gotten the LA fact of the day with our upcoming la trip?
Do you know the reason why LA is the hub for film?
Hollywood? Yeah, and do you know why they decided to put Hollywood in LA because it's a desert knows what's the spice good weather. Great weather now it's because Thomas Edison the inventor had all these patents of what did what did he invent?
The Telegraph? record player light bulb, alkaline storage battery and camera for motion picture despicable. Yeah, I mean pretty good inventor but he held all the patents for like motion pictures in New Jersey. And so everyone was sued.
They're trying to create productions in New York and so they decided to fly to LA so it was harder
for people to enforce the patients so interesting. There's actually a thing called like a patent troll. And so what these these are people who have bought but if we got what's happening on Instagram anyone talking to us?
I mean Gemma, Gemma got a message from a 13 year old. This is back in the day, not just for
clarification. Yeah, I mean, I mean otherwise, Roses are red, violets are blue other than your virginity What else have you got to lose?
Imagine that Yeah, I'm a fire hose. Hot quotes. Calm would have been where I got that
was I'm just saying
it was about patents. Yeah, trolls. So basically there's a there's a huge thing like where these big businesses like this.
Big organisations basically get paid.
And then come after everyone. So there was actually there's a case around podcasting where a bunch of big podcasters about 10 years ago, all got taken to court for doing podcasting. Really.
I know that invite over time, like the public record they had to go to like I had representatives that had to go to Dallas to Texas to fight
a patient troll around marketplaces. So if you had a marketplace this company was basically suing every single marketplace
what a gross business yeah gross business model because they're trying to get money out there trying to get payout the Adam Carolla and he's he's not the comedian. He was um, he, he got taken down by the patent troll. They did like an out of court settlement. So it's still like it costs people
sort of have to like, it's like they can just keep bringing it on and on and on.
I think when when when stuff works, then is the chance when people see the opportunity because that's what they're doing. They're going what's an opportunity here? Who can we get money out of? Yeah, I mean it's fact those other
bands I used to work with bands. You want them he's This is he's caveat he's like he's he's giving you can I guess Can I guess one is white the white band? Is the white band kissing, not flesh it It's okay. They've got that I mean they get so orange is kiss yellows, how clear is whatever you want. Blue whatever you want. Is that that's Yeah, that's
the property manager from Doncaster.
That was the bench he had gone. Red lap dance blue, blowjob silver fisting,
kink flash, and where are these being sold? Is it crazy Clinton, he
said still around that shop now.
Remember Clint snow it was in devil hills. Interesting Facts there. I mean, yeah, I mean old school. If you grow up in the 90s in Australia that was the shift going on at promise schools High School Yeah, Isn't it crazy? Yeah, I think it's gonna bring you to sing but think about it there was experimenting on my it was always all Can you do spin the ball? Did you ever do spin the body talked about keys JC can do. Right now we didn't. I mean, we didn't have these bands. That wasn't a thing to do. Did you do spin the bottle ever? No, not really. I mean, but it's also it also wasn't the group that I was part of as well.
As I'm sure other people would have done spin but yeah, it was such a fun time. It's been the bottle.
What was so upsetting is when there you see people's like dismay. Like is it saying to me, like no, no, no, no. It's really bad for your for morale. I remember holding the door while people like with kissing in this one girl.
girl who I went out with like you had to stand still holding the door why they made out but then I ended up going out with her couple of months later, classic bait and switch.
I put in the effort for her and she reward me I was thinking it's like
this la trip could end up being like a bit of a school camp for you. thinking maybe maybe we could get a disposable camera that Mr. Nice Evan can take his his camp camera. Yeah. Did you get Canon cameras back in the day?
digital daddy got me desk there fella. Yeah, I can't Oh, I should know I had I had a five day mark.
I had a little point and shoot.
I had the depth. Yeah, I had to be Zeiss lens.
Yeah, that's great idea. We'll get him a flat like a little is like the disposable until you get to do Mr. 96.
La adventure. Yeah, late layer one sec camp scrapbook.
I loved them. Yeah, yeah, we'll get creative. Yeah, I would love for you to do it is the problem is you're gonna have to ask the TSA officers not to put the disposable camera through the X ray machine. I think you could probably get it, it's a film you will need to you have to let them know and declare and say, hey, I've got a film camera. And they'll put that they won't put that through the scanner. That's great. Yeah, because they're pretty full on interesting studies. We have to stand in that thing. But it's actually just the normal like if you go on a normal domestic flight, other thing just in the chemistry. Yeah. Interesting. Anything else coming through before we sign off for the day?
Rob board message he's like that's why he didn't answer my call Josh and he wants you to call him back. Yet no problem. And Jess said they used to hold the buttons on this school clothes when an ambulance tripod this pasta school. That was in relation to the belly button.
hold the button on your on your school uniform. All of them.
That's a bit wait until I mean how would you I said there were kids who would never wear shorts. I only ever wore shorts, summer, winter, spring autumn. All of them. I will whenever I wanted. I would you bet you probably wear jeans I can imagine. I know that you weren't allowed. We know but I can just imagine you being the type to wear No. Shoes. Now. Yeah, I ended up wearing like, it was a complete role at a private school. We managed to get away with wearing because the rule was I have to be all leather black shoes and so we found old leather black Nike shoes. And so we will rock in Charlotte I mean, Nike is so yes, it's so funny as a kid you think you'd bet the system but then you realise how easily they could just say dress shoes.
Haha, you guys a fact? Yeah, there's no option here. Yeah. And then the next one is all about having the cool bag. Carry Caribbean carry
beanbags, what does that mean? Hang on like there's a brand carabiners rubber band you'd hang him low of different colours Yellow Red would just like hang on bag low my life I just want the bag higher higher to my
as a kid you don't give a shit
if this breaks my back I want to yeah you've got you've got the little clips of hanging off the side doing your shoulder that like that was a big thing is like in school being like, Don't one shoulder your bag I think they've probably outlawed say Mr. 97 rules around bags in school because think of it I see kids go to the private schools. The private school kids have given so many books and like they're always having to carry around being bags. I remember when the kindle the little redhead saw this one kid is in my mind. It looks
was this recently recently poor little kittens at worst coloured uniforms. Do you remember when that was saying like the iPads and all that sort of stuff we're going to replace in textbooks
It takes a lot of money if I'm in details. No, but ladies just come up with another grand idea where white t shirt like you do it year 12 and get a sign. That's great from all the gas. Yeah.
It'd be great to do a small run for us a to a to a T shirt to a tee so it on the back it has like the the Los Angeles like whatever.
it'd be fun. We I had to do a big,
big presentation in the 12 about trying to do 12 hoodies. I principle would not have a bar of it. She wouldn't let us have what is in your 12 she thought that it was opportunities for us to cover our faces. When we were like fucking like doing naughty shit. Is that crazy? Anyway, I should have pushed way harder on that. But they also push hard now to do it for our Woody's Tisha
Javon want a polar many she's within the gorilla, Paula. Anyway, we'll see you tomorrow guys today talk show if you got anything to contribute, now you've got other details on the fact of the bands, which would just completely outrageous was the weird thing that you had at your school that that was going on because I think it's just, there's some weird shit going on. Maybe if you know something now that's happening that will blow our minds like you've got kids or it'd be fun to do a documentary series where we like, Don't inside the schools. I mean, have you working with children's volunteer only?
Actually, I don't even look I just put employer employee of the month just get one. I got one and i and i and i and i was i was getting too confusing. I just picked a bit. So technically I worked for a school on my children's check, ever check. I didn't ask for any details. I was like, Oh, that's the only one that's really relevant to me because I'm not volunteering.
I'm getting paid. And so I'm an employee of a school. I didn't I just says that on there. Anyway, today's hold show. Hi, the dough talk. show.com is the email address. Otherwise, we'll say to my guys see
