It's a daily Talk Show Episode 507 cheese, cheese without bluestone line coffee comes, yes. Coffee. It is very good. This is a
coffee establishment that I went to for the first time I think around 2013 or 14 we agree in New York City. I actually had a list of places that we had to go to let me guess the list was all Australia
and places including bluestone line, which was in New York. Yeah. And now they're all over the place. So Nick stone, the founder of blue stone line rz. Boy, Melvin, specifically
for the board. You know, there's one thing we know it's funny, wolf wolf. He used to play for calling wouldn't hold phone. Anyway, he's, we've got him on while we're over here and currently we're tasting the produce. Can you say it's produce
before the ground and made into coffee. It's bright.
Judah produce I say I, I made a promise to myself, which I'm breaking right now. And that promise was to no booze. You got a little bit of vodka.
I'm not drinking alcohol. I made a promise that wall in the States, I wouldn't drink any milk or even almond milk for that matter in my coffee, so I can wean myself off the lattes because I find them to like,
I go to them as like, I'm a bit hungry and it's a bit naughty. I can probably have my third for the day. I think it's fine. I think we were talking about this earlier. You were saying? A guy that you follow online has given up six. Yeah. And I just said like, the world's gone mad. No. So what I wanted to do is wane off milk based coffees and get on to black or black. And I've done it once before coming back from the States. I managed to just do it. It was like it's like a not even a detox. I'm not getting often. But you know, I wanted to just drink black coffee but I'm breaking it.
iced coffee shop is got the best. Yeah. So the aim is by 2025 you having absolutely no fun?
Fun? Yeah. Yeah, quick sex quit. What else can I meet?
wife PKIPK bluestone line. Nick was in classic Li style traffic. And so this place is busy, but he's a very hospitable when he was like guys, so sorry about the delays, help yourself to whatever and so Mr. 97 has absolutely gone to town. Yeah, he's got
he's got one on a finger right.
It's actually a bit of an auction.
Show as this is a place of firsts for Mr. Knight, he says he's currently holding right now.
Online coffee cup. And he's just had a sniff of it because we've got him a black coffee. You just when you say can I just have a coffee? And they bring out just a nice brewed batch of coffee. And so you haven't you take the lid off 97 because I want to keep a track of show that you're consuming the whole thing's could go badly for Here we go. It couldn't be we could have a trust policy that he could just tell us he's doing a three day do
all the doughnuts.
Very true. Could you could you imagine three day delay because we're going to Whole Foods. We are very much basic pitches. And so we've been each evening, for some reason we've been forgetting to have dinner or things have been getting ahead of us. And so our schedules made us have dinner at like 930 which I guess it's all over the shop because we're not right now. It's like middle of the day in Melbourne and evening time. It's almost evening time here. But Missoni says tell us what you just take
The lid off. Is it black black coffee zone? It is single black. Black. Black is so much bigger than your one. Yeah, cuz I got you the large vibe.
And I think the strength of coffee over here is it's pretty brutal. Yeah. And so it's strong. It's I petrol, good quality, unleaded, the Noni
Noni it before you before you sniff it, I just wanted to say that you had you were there needs to be a slight intervention. Yes. In regards to 97 consumption of the Whole Foods did a menu because we all get a box and you have to fill up the box. No, no, there's boxes of different sizes and you can fill it to whatever height you want to be fair, he's picking we're all going the small sized box. Yeah, but Mr. 97 had that approach of all feel it and it's a competition How high can I get
This thing which then makes it way heavier which then they do it per pound yeah and so it's a bit of a fro yo into that I remember spending fucking 50 bucks on Friday once but you've been very like your three day deal to the the whole foods and that just grace talking about three day deal and what he would be doing in the situation trigger that he'd be getting a large and these dinner one whole foods box would be 55 bucks Americans could you imagine the cookies and select the dessert section what that would look like and I do the cookies by the white so you just like it looks like you've got access to a bakery. And then you just open it up put them into back into a big bag. Take it doesn't matter what you could mix match, put it on the counter and then they just why it I wonder what is like the best if you were to really deconstruct it where you could get the most value. So is it because it 97 you were saying that the Glock you felt that the pound would have been good value. Yeah, I mean a whole box of that. So a lot of I'm going to see the boys away from
Food chat because we've been called out for having way too much food chat on this podcast. While the calorie I think what people push back on is that it's the calories around food so not just being able to have fun with it. That's not my conversation. I mean, you did pick a cake just purely based on calories. And I wasn't involved. Anyway. 97 is got his coffee. Yes. Is your first time having you took a sip once have a coffee when we were doing a film shoot when you were being a model and you remember that when he was showing you and presses? Yes. Do you remember? No.
I can't hear what you're saying. He said no.
No, he was. Where was that at? The coffee place? I want coffee. Yes. Oh, yeah. Yeah. Was that that was ice though. Yeah. Yeah. Iced coffee. And so now you're about to have some more. So he's first which this is going to be drinking a whole thing. Whether he shoots himself, or doesn't sleep tonight. I want one of the two. I'd be happy with both. Absolutely.
Josh help me just got the heater on in our bathroom. It's very the heater in our bathroom this lovely isn't it to take a sip nine seven and tell us what Okay, here we go and just remember we're at Nick Stein's establishment do not
he's in he's got a
under matured palette Yeah. So he doesn't understand
that this is good coffee we bloody welcome it tastes less strong does it yeah great it's the hidden assassin so you enjoying it or what are you thinking?
It's not too bad, okay? It's it's nicer than a latte really not that I've had a lot
of a latte or whatever. It's a bit nicer than that. Okay? So coffee review in general like that's not even a that's not even a cafe recommendation that's a whole category recommendation. Coffee it's not as not as bad as you
thought it's a great category. We're talking this morning and I don't know how I even got onto I can't remember. But it was basically color Association game where I say color. And you say what flavor is associated with that?
So he's just done a anxious breath
well he's looking a bit viney in the arms what's up from he's laying my blood sugar is nice pump. I mean, once I finish once I finished that whole cup, because it was sucks all the water out of Europe. Yeah.
It's like the dehydration actors do before they do a bodybuilder we try and get maybe a topless show. afterwards. Yeah, that would actually be a fun guy to do.
Nothing but the game
is a color. And you need to say what flavor is associated with that Coco nice
You can fly as well. Okay, so I want you to think in your head the foods are, you know, poultry?
Are we going like food, like cheap searching in general about the flavors that associated these kinds of food you don't have to say the food, but I'm saying in your head to play this game you need to think about all those things so like chips, poultry, you know, pizza, like all the branding stuff that's surrounding that because I think there is colors that are directly related to fly those two flavors just joined us on the line. Right? So let's just start Brown. barbecue.
You too slow. This is if I'm too slow. I get his this as in like, my brain gut jumps to your association, okay? Because he can't think so.
The first thing I thought of his shit.
So I think I think what we could do is try to use a one and then we have a second than you say why
Two three. Okay, no, don't I go okay. Blue 123 playing milkshake. And he doesn't understand the game still like a blueberry milkshake. Yeah, yeah, sure. But so I'm saying we haven't so you're going to say sorry. You can explain it to the young guy. You need to say the flavor. Its way blueberry.
Fun. Equals Okay, give us a second 123 chicken. Yeah, say this there is
did you jump to free range then? A free range Patty?
Yeah, like an egg cotton but also I'm thinking like, twist ease. packet. grain is chicken jumpy. Where do we go? Next one? Yellow 321 cheese. Yeah. All right, let's go. This is an IQ
Purple grape three
Shut the fuck up 321
go oh I think he because he said it first. I will say potentially some vinegar
Na Na or Cadbury you say purple hey I think Red Rock teli have purple for their salt and vinegar so who comes who's coming up with these colors? Who's coming up with associating the color to the flavor or is it just strong branding well there's there's a whole art to like color science around
like the psychology of colors and what what colors mean well I think like this
this I want to be able to think of a coffee shop that is blue without thinking of blue stone light yeah and so it's got like the yeah for me there's the stat What does that start so that's STI is the same star that was only a Christmas tree. Now my
Primary school uniform. It's a it's a start with it's like a
three day to day Star 1234 anyway
it's not but I really I really liked the logo and it's
I'm gonna have to I was gonna say fairy floss like, like real just flat out. I think you almost marshmallows. Yeah, they're always in pink bra. Yeah, pass Pascal. The other thing is I don't know why that juice boxes. I haven't seen pink juice. Juice is telling you
fucking fall apart without me.
So we actually we went to, we went to lunch with teli today, catchiness? Gina's Gucci Gucci Cheetos. Cheetos. What was it called?
She knows. She knows. I don't know. But the thing is just coo coo was slightly
Chain off sassy a synopsis NOCACCONIS It's a real porn I made the thing is I do panic a little bit why? I just going to lunch. I didn't really think about what I should be wearing. And so I rocked up with my Lululemon running shorts.
My daily talk show hoodie and my hat you know,
for me the most under dressed in this very cool West Hollywood establish
probably frequenting anything you do when you're in this situation. You're in this real quick scan who else is
so I think there's a thing about West Hollywood, where if you dress like that, you must be a block bro. I actually thought the thought they probably
must have been like fucking that there's a Hollywood producer.
But then the thing is I actually
not happy with how with cocoon kindness, because
you know, but I did feel a moment where I felt like I was underdressed, but I was pretty proud of myself because I quickly did take my hat off and put it under the I didn't even notice that. How did my hair look? Was it okay must have been I didn't notice you. Hey, but I didn't think I didn't connect it to the just taking the hat. Yeah, I took it off because I thought that seems like I was looking around to did the scan. Yeah, no hats. Been anywhere. 97 any way where you felt out of place when it comes to dress where you've been underdressed or overdressed? You're gonna go out to feel and I mean, yeah, you were you were going to pack a shirt. Yeah. Mom said pack a shirt, didn't you? Yeah, I didn't pack one. Well, why wouldn't you do what mom says?
What's your actual rationale behind the why it's too much? It's a bit of a nightmare because it will get graced. If I roll it up is still going to have crisis so I just thought I'd just go with it.
What's the best t shirt you brought with you this one? Now my the one that I wore, like two nights ago. Okay. Come on out and about Yeah, God He wore it. He was strong.
He looked great on the town. The other the other thing too, is I guess shoes are a big one the dead giveaway though. I mean, you
like I think you push back on. Like, I'll tell you there's something like a fixed something about your face. When you take something like this.
You got something here or I don't know. But I feel this real sense of pushback on like,
who you telling me these four. And you and then turn around on me like I care that you were looking at? Yeah, whatever you say something about this. I mean, I know
I'm like, I'll deal with it like it doesn't actually walking. Yeah, I think you will talk right now. Yeah, but you but it's, you don't really give a fuck. I mean to wear the shoes you do the pair of shoes. Yeah, I think there's something Yeah. Potentially. I mean think about Larry David. Yeah. Jerry Seinfeld. I got very comfortable. I was like, as long as my biggest concern was I wasn't going to be allowed in. Yeah. Did you think that for one second when the valet at the front so I thought it was a security guy. Yeah, it
was he was like, everything in fact that count.
Hollywood, we saw a guy last night.
He looked like Pete Wentz from Fallout boy he had face tattoos on and he had a hat sort of like poking up in a CD and easy. These pants were really low and he's like stuff for rock star face tat thinking. He's either a celebrity or he's made some bad choices. He
Because like I was the only a celeb can really pull that off. Well, we were learning a bit about car laces. And you were talking the other day about costs of rain drivers. I was getting a bit of pushback because I think you potentially undersold it. I think where there was only 12 processors. Yeah, great. You did. I think that the real
the real kicker is that from what Tom was telling us, everyone's leasing their car. Yeah, it's a it's a nice job around here. You pay 600 bucks a month. And you can have a like, not a Ferrari, but like a high end merch. Yeah. You're definitely not a Ferrari.
I mean, maybe you can you know, Ferrari. I love that. That's
not me. Now, what I meant was in 1994. I was gonna say Ferrari that I admitted that I was like, Yeah, not not a Ferrari. That's me telling myself. I just verbalized to myself. That it's not a problem.
Get when you when it comes to it's okay yeah we're all good. Thank you. Very good bloody service very good. Mason UTYG
i've i've got money in the back of my phone. Okay, you've got you still got white so you dad gave you white US dollars
I've got six legs fellows left
for the fox rental car yet the more of those bought you dinner last night was that many
What if you would if you guys were to get a car you know you had that la fuck you money you had a lease yeah I other than like I think here. There's so much traffic I want to Tesla. I don't want to drive this traffic area. I want to be in there. But this place is like when you drive the highways here. It is made like a test to make sure makes so much sense. Just the highways are outrageous. People are driving so
Buddy five and switching lines is six lines Tesla smarter than me dude yeah yeah no i great I would have gone a test I'm guessing you would have gone a test or as well you've never seen so many Tesla's? Yeah they're there every time you say 197 points it out yeah he's actually slow down Oh yeah. illuminating logo might sound healing
you're pushing back i was i was that it was like an LED Yeah. logo that was literally This is like you were saying a yellow school bus go by. There is a school bus. Yeah.
What I'm talking about all the time, because I turned it's because I turned my head when I was doing it. What are some of the other aesthetics that are specific to the US? billboards you've never seen so many? the freeway colors are like the ground is like a gray. Yeah, but also on the billboards. What do you think is
The most common billboard you'll see a movie posters,
boys, boys, let's set a bad accident and we can see why not. Now, mirin McKinnon, the good life said Is it like it's a movie? There's a bunch of mirror mirror.
Mirror. mucky muck MacAllan McKellen's. Yeah, yeah, there's a bunch of posters for stuff that we will never see like, the streaming services that we don't have. So yeah, so the gray, like think about watching which I loved watching cop car like the highway pursuits looking down, you know, grey pavement or pitchman whatever it is. What else is there? 97 What was it for you? You love the police cars? Yeah, the police. How's it cool? We haven't actually we haven't seen that many motorbikes in terms of like police. Oh, I was thinking that the other night. I didn't think many many people ride motorbikes here. Yeah, I guess it's too dangerous. Yeah. Oh, yes. We did see one motorbike Radha in an Elmo helmet. So he had like a
I'm kind of like costume for his helmet. Yeah. And he was dancing and
what else? palm trees? It's it's quintessential. Yeah. Now there's a there's a few. What is it for you baby boy?
I think big logos is another one. Yeah, it's pretty general and then
you know what I mean like massive CVS sign Yeah, I get what I think it's the the digital world coming in so you see like
Uber advertising Amazon, Google all of these big brands that we normally only see online we're saying out and about. So we're witnessing right now a guy who's on his phone. I mean people on their phone and they can look we got a
guy on a Segway like a legit segway you'd ride like the big ones, not just the ones for your fate. Yeah, I gotta tell you a story once 2012 great year we're in West Hollywood, my my make 50 and I
Sitting at this place for dinner. Let me see this guy on a Segway.
And there was a bit of stigma around sake wise, wise they still do you think like stigma? Like a seven year old think like they're fucking dumb? I don't know. I think Steve was Yeah, he was big into the Segway so so I think early days now they find like, there's been so many of them, but when they first came out, they were like
I think they were just dangerous. I remember thinking about like, what am I don't know why my mom was so invested but dangerous, similar to a feeling towards mate that she had.
You had her on Facebook, eat meat on FaceTime. What else was she saying? Oh, they're already dead.
So we're in West Hollywood and having dinner. And I see this guy on a Segway. I had a 15 hour light look at these fucking dip this track and then he rides up into our restaurant and
He managed to pull off the handlebar.
And he got off. And he had a limp. He was disabled. It was transport, but I was like, Oh my god, that was fucking much as paying that guy out for riding the stupid fucking segway next minute.
I say that he's actually disabled has a great mode of transport for someone
like an asshole but so but I liked him and I'll save that by saying You did a good date date yesterday. But none of you guys fucking stood out. Well, I To be honest, I was about to say something he's gonna cut down. He
wasn't gonna bring it up because I knew this is where
you're here right now.
I'll drink my coffee. So we're at Ocean was the ocean point. Oceanside, Oceanside. They should just lose the second word is called ocean. No, it's not second word. It's one word ocean. Sorry. Okay. Right. I wasn't looking after the maps. Alright, Martian side. Really nice place. The funny thing is you were saying it's not gonna be as nice as
Laguna I don't think it is. I think it's like it's a trashy more. It's a Yeah, it's a. It's like a safety beach to surrender. That's a good that's a good thing. That's a good example safety page to Sorento. Sorento hoity toity
inaccurate. Yeah, no, it's fine. No, I'm, is it okay to engage the whole room? I'm talking anyway.
We were at Ocean View, ocean side, ocean point side, ocean side. And there was a man who was in a wheelchair. And he was a big man. And he had it looked like he has 350 pounds. Yeah. And so he had sort of early stage sort of diabetes stuff where it's early stage, dude, he was about to fall off. Okay. So he had Oh my god. Early Stage amputation. I guess he was the biggest open one you've ever seen this poor paga Yeah, it say he was just, you would have so much pain was Aires leg. It was like
Mommy's leg was the size of my thought his calf was the size of my thought. And it was like, it looked severely, like a fresh burn the pull back anyway. So he's going down a ramp. And the thing is, people have a bunch of people have said this in the States, there's so much sort of people suing each other and shit like that. So our mate was telling a story about their friend falling off a skateboard, and no one helped him because they're worried if they touch him or whatever, and something happens, they get answered. And so I think there's a little bit of that five words like little bit bystanders syndrome stuff going on where it's like, do I help this person? Please, can you would you be able to get sued over here? Would you be
drinking? Yes, you will come over here and I just wasn't sure if like
to be like a Resident Evil. I just want to say
it this season.
He's a fucking 20 or 30 meter ramp. That's like going up. It was weird that they it was even a ramp. I thought when I when we walked around the corner, it was a ramp up because it seems like almost like something you'd say. Like going like, cause what is a small bridge? Yeah, exactly. And so anyway, there's this guy, and he's trying, he's holding on to the side of the ramp, trying to slowly get down in a wheelchair. So, yeah, so we're walking up and as we're walking up, my head went to, I think we should help that guy. And then when I said that, you said I might do you want a hand? Is like I Yeah, thanks. And and so and I actually don't know if he said thanks. But he. He's like, yes. And then you just sort of helped it helped him. I went up to him. I said, Yeah, so you might your art unit is really hurting you. And so I grabbed onto the back of the back of his wheelchair, and he's the tricep fat.
I was just like, overlapping onto my hand, sweaty, just chafing together. And I was like, at that point I felt the swing. I was like, oh, man, oh man. And so I had to push this poor bugger down the down the ramp. And it was hard because I'm trying to hold. I'm trying to pull back as he goes down because if I let go, he would have just
thought halfway. I was like, what I was what I was thinking was I said, I don't know if Josh could have done this.
Well, imagine if
you guys could have been at the front now we didn't want to take away
felt like it was a Yeah, it felt
like you couldn't come and do
that. No, you
know, I wear a suit.
One ZK comes up when I'm going
I mean, in all honesty, it wasn't actually a consideration when I was walking up. Like, you wouldn't have helped him not I don't know what he said though, because I honestly don't think I'm some fucking here. There's a dog in a bag. That's cute. dog and a handbag.
That's ours. That's another thing. You've seen Hollywood, like two hours, every small dogs.
Where can we get you in the mindset of helping people? No, I think i think i think i do do that. I think I help people. But yeah, I don't know. For some reason. Maybe I wasn't paying attention. But when you? Yeah, I mean, when you did it, there wasn't even a thought of being like, Oh, I wonder if Tommy needs a head. I honestly thought I need help. At one point I was I need these guys. Because I was thinking I started thinking which I didn't think before I started was, if we picked up momentum. He's not starting over beg for help. It felt like a situation where there's an old lady walking across the street, you know, like he helped and then
We come into a one person job
dude going down around but we
thank you we try to get
to a point now we got to a point where I was like how do we sort of let go Am I gonna I'll push him right down to the bottom and he got to a point is that all right right
because he wanted a bit of momentum momentum like he got to a point where it was probably two meters before the bottom he picked up a bit of speed and he
he's after Sandy
thanks for thanks for not and so
don't know where I was going with that but it was Yeah, we went to there and then we did Laguna and we had the the episode at Laguna Beach, which was which was beautiful. It was It was lovely.
Anyway, the cafe is actually closing Okay, so we better head off 97 I guess you don't have a come up with a random fact without looking at you strange
life fact of the day with Mr. 90
Seven completely out of nowhere
ad lib make it up no one knows what really thinking. No You know what I found interesting way all this Have you had your coffee by the way? It's a bit it's about an
probably drunk maybe half a sentiment. Let's have a look. You can see from the coffee stain.
Quickly scallop before
this guy, guy.
So he's drinking
night. We are no more 24
no seriously you always please quickly come on. You're gonna have a first not I can actually scale it up. Well, you should have just been drinking throughout. That's what I'm upset about. So he's taking another big sip and take another sip after that. Oh my god. You remember the first time you ever had coffee, TJ keep going. I said I wanted to say there was a time where I needed to get into it.
Lucky. I don't know who comes out of the gates just loving coffee. Because there's a there's a breaking period it's either in, like Nescafe. We're using some shitty. I never did. I never did instant is actually doing quite a good job tickling. He's good. He's gonna speed now he was he's not going to spill it's it's great quality coffee just don't do that face at the front here because people think that you're not good. Keep going
and then we'll hit the LA factor you give us a fact Tommy?
Every said rotten read. No. Rotten read. It's a rule. Our law wouldn't work in Australia, you'd have to be left,
left on red. So when you're turning right, because you're on the right hand side of the road. When you're at a red light. You can roll through the red light you can drive through it is no, it's a fun fact. Ozzy's love it.
We're getting right behind it. Yes, I gotta read telling my son yet, but I reckon we shouldn't really read this.
close out it's a daily talk show we're trying to do it every episode with just asked this week yet as much as possible. And then next week we'll start rolling out all the guest episodes we're having some fantastic guests including Nick stone will be joining us from blue stone later coffee coming up in the next week or so. In fact
I think what I was gonna say was I found no I you know, it's a fact but no, it's not really a fact. It's more just an interesting thing. will be the week we have you've seen the place where all the school buses park the car? Yes. Yeah, but like, wait, was it was that in Melbourne? The bus depose, yeah. Are you serious? That's not trying to pose
the Sandringham bus depot is next to Sandringham trying to know I don't even know what that's what I have an observation. That's what is that? You just said buses go somewhere at night. Is that what you're saying? Yeah, no, but I've never I've never seen whether
Gone at once and they have them. Yeah, I've seen them before them before my step. Okay, so yeah, I'm saying hey, what do you think happens to you think the bus drivers take them home and kick them in the driveway? Easy and Frank I just live in in Frank's
parallel parking ticket. Oh, hang on, hang on hang up. today. Now Uber experience. Oh yeah, I called the Uber went out to France. And I was convinced i'd fact that I said to the guy who also had a passenger in the seat, I said, mate, sorry, have I ordered an Uber pool? He said, No. No, I was just showing this guy the ropes.
I said I'll have to squash in the back then. Yeah, this is Uber driver. I had to go in the front. Nice Guy though. No, no lovely. But I mean, the guy who we met for lunch said give him give him a 00 stars for that. Yeah, I don't think it's actually possible has to be one stuff.
