It's a daily Talk Show Episode 500 and it is happening guys. We're in Los Angeles, West Hollywood and it is Tuesday Wednesday in Australia. It's been a big day. I mean, I've got me hat on. I've got me special head on. This is the Mr. 97 we wearing this on the Halloween night.
All night doesn't penetrate your eyes.
Close your eyes and I'm the only one opens
Yeah. Which was my left one that stock. Might you love talking lead?
So it's been a big one. James is very on brand. Shannon says Tommy tilt the hat back slyly like a hipster wearing a fedora for a little trial like So Assistant Patrick's Day.
But then you don't see the St. Patrick's Day bit. Yeah. And then it takes a while and then just looks like I'm a weirdo wearing bright green hat. Yeah. Anyway, there was some good fine chat banter. Just before we got started. You were just trying to turn on my phone. Yeah, well, I'm yeah. So I've got so accustomed to having my phone stay on, and not turning off unless I button that. And it's because I changed it. The reason why I changed is because if Google Photos, you know, you have to have the Google Photos app open for it to suck all your photos off, off your heart off you drive into your drive. And so you need to keep it okay. Yeah, sure. And so I change it for that, but it comes in handy. So I mean, I lose battery. If If I forgot to turn it off. I've come back and it's been on for three hours and my phone's hot. Yes, it's it's not. I saw that the show Baker joined before Alex, Alex. Sorry, but we're in LA and we have a new show.
a full full blown chef, they doing everything for us breakfast, lunch and dinner. But they've got this thing. I mean, we've been having some road trip style conversations because we've spent a bit of time in the car. And somehow the other day we found ourselves talking about was it you that said the superpower that you want to know that you would bring up superpowers? No, but someone said first, wouldn't it be amazing if you could find some Josh, you said that you said it first. So you said Would it be amazing if I could bite something and tell you the exact breakdown of ingredients? I didn't think of it as a superpower. skill. Yeah, I mean, pretty we'd skill we'd superpower.
But my point was because I was thinking like, wouldn't it be great to know exactly what additives and saying oddly says they've used green color 649 and a little bit of cinnamon. There we go. We sort of useless skill.
Almost but interesting flex imagine being in a restaurant and just being able to know exactly vein like, guys you're using canola oil kit yet. Yeah, I mean and then I said okay what would you prefer to have a skill? Like a be the best at what was it sneaker? Oh no dots dots those dots mole was that it was it was a the dots or like being a world champion
or but you don't have to train. You don't have to just stay the best Yeah, or the other. The other option was to be able to eat any food and know exactly what ingredients. I thought that the dots would be too limiting in regards to my lifestyle because it would mean that it's only a benefit if I'm around a dartboard or if I'm playing in competitions, whereas the food thing. I could be anywhere and use that trick. Or you could start a pretty good blog.
You could be the guy that goes to restaurants to wow people in definitely be on X Factor. Yeah.
I mean, cow. You'd be the same shot. No, AJ Kyle was on that was neat. Can't handle it. Not sure. Yeah, it was someone else. I think so. But I can imagine you doing a full road show around the world. Yeah, it'd be many thing I think about if I had certain skills and how much I would leverage them, which is probably why I don't have the skills. It never happens to the person that's going to really leverage. Like if I was going to golf. Yeah, I'd be at the driving range of driving, right? Yeah, just fucking kidding. It just. Yeah. Anyway, okay, I'm going to open your phone back up because I thought the the the dryer saga continues. Whether it's spoken of or not. I've been using the dryer. Uh huh. I think I've used it twice since our first conversation around it. I stopped bringing it up because you'd get so annoyed about
it say that all you I gave you a fresh clean towel? was it was it the clean towel that got you over the line? Yeah Now the towel was handy. I would have probably done that to be fair like you would I've had one week g need to wash a towel after a week we needed to because we went to the beach and I got Mr. 97 I cleaned these clothes so I was I'm I'm everyone will be worried about those now. What I've seen your word of shrinkage. Yeah, on a serious I mean a medium you're gonna not I but my my T shirts of like if you put it on? Not yet. Now I've got my T shirts in there too. Nice shrinkage. I'm not sure maybe you fact what were those nice tops that Amy bought for you from New York.
Definitely not fact by a dryer. Not my maybe the dryer that we had it out. What was the great
No that's a lost bro if a line I could have met the channel My boss right now I can imagine he's changing hats
I can imagine 97
Tommy wearing ever last week when I was 17 every line he's a brand that's got like a socially sort of conscious element you sort of they've got a section pay what you want really have the
roof I didn't I imagine the gronk stay here I would be it's it's like the different things so it's like UA the pie the minimum amount hi so that for better worse conditions. It's like goes through all these different things. But anyway, I felt that will quite premium.
For some reason. I saw you up close and I saw your T shirt and the T shirt within a week had gone. Oh, yeah fact around the neck I good but then one of the three that we bought
was good and it had the same treatment and so it was the I the what are they is color? They're good. They don't shrink but Mr. Nice 75 Fuck your white t shirt I actually have. I used to think I could fit into mediums. And it was it looked like I was 21 again where I will I thought tight tops with fashionable
and so I've got a whole bunch of white Christianity's that I can give to you. So why are you in a band? So I thought
the whole pushback about the dry I was that I was using the guys power of where we're staying. And so I'm going to message Mehrdad. That's his name Yeah, maybe I don't want to message him and and to say he might have been using Is there a limit to how much I use the draw and
I'm doing it hang on his he can see so this is on my account.
I just want to say what he has to feel good right now. Yeah.
Yeah, why can't I just let him settle it?
I saw that there's a dry eye was there a limit to how much I can use it?
I think that he's gonna worry that the dry is fact. Why would he worried if I say the thing is is there a limit because it's like, it sounds like your eyes. Okay, what about what about if he positioned it as in? We've got a few dirty clothes coming home ah not a way able to use the dryer every night. Yeah, okay, I like that because because
it's a real gronk way of just being like, Is there a limit?
The smartest guy in the room right? This is all fucking The thing is you're telling that we've sounds like your organizing a laundromat.
That's the other thing I want to check after you've done that 97 is I wanted to go to my first ever Airbnb.
I wanted to see if it was still available whether I'd be able to book it be sort of something fun about going in 2012 where was it San Francisco? Okay, so it's not it's not how I
did I go the guts good I baited Finn. Good I Sarah George. I mean we couldn't get the greatest quality said beat event sorry about that night sorry buddy.
watch on YouTube. Like, looks like
we couldn't even get the Airbnb that we stayed in last time we were in LA because I tried different times of the year and wouldn't even show it out so they must take things off the market. When would you go hotel versus Airbnb? I've actually thought
that we almost couldn't for this trip, gone hotel other than having the nice space for us to dump out she I almost it was cheaper going Airbnb, I think we could have gone like, I mean, we would have to go on bit tacky a call like Tachyon
Hotel already paid a little bit more and you get an actual place with a dry that you can abuse. I mean us.
So nice seven still writing that
we were having an argument before based on eating and Whole Foods. I know we don't do that much through chat.
Know the pushback that I have is that we're having Whole Foods for most breakfast, and most dinners, and this is from Whole Foods what you're eating now, most dessert Do you understand where I'm coming from my pushback in were in the US for a short period of time. I'm not asking for shit food. I'm just asking that we try other good options. It's so convenient. That's the only problem. When convenience fit, we live we work next to our McDonald's doesn't mean we have McDonald's, don't you think you'll look back at Don't you think that the thing that I really think is will look back
People will be like, Oh, Mr. Nice heaven. How is Li How good is the Mexican food?
Young might what he wants. And he doesn't have it in these, Brian to search for what the options are. But this is the thing he needs to look like. He doesn't even want to. We had a whole argument at dinner. Oh no. Tally Smith ripped into Mr. 97. basically telling him to shut up and eat one get what eat what gets brought out to the table? Because every time there was a piece of food, what's that? Are you saying that when
you were drunk? My Kairos I do remember teli saying Yeah, she was saying shut up dead to you. And then she was saying eight the bloody fool. Yeah.
By the way, George says
abusing the dryer and Airbnb is totally fine. Thanks, George. George gronk goes well
when Alex is on
Me the down low on dessert from Whole Foods. The desert from Whole Foods is amazing. They do. It's by the pound so you buy all the cookies in the slices and you just put it in the bag. I've got a bakery section where it's freshly baked each day and there's Yeah, like you say cookies, but there's even they get into like, blonde ease and like, like a sweeter brownie, which is in some weed brownie that we're eating before that had caramel. I don't know, we should find that. If see if Alex can cook that.
Well, I feel like I want to put a stop to all of this. Certain anyway. So
eating dessert every single night, but 97 what's the what's the pushback in trying new things? There's, there's there's no pushback on mine. I it's it's I think it's a great idea. But
as Tommy was saying before, I don't have it in my head as to what's around. So I went on Yelp just before and I searched up
All the top places near us, similar to the hope
that I I did I did a search and I made sure I put the budget on the lowest one.
And this open
to like 10 o'clock. Yeah.
And what you find
about two Mexican places that looks great. And Italian place
which Yeah, potentially. And then it was a fusion might have been a nice food. Yeah, yeah. Hey, everybody.
Right? And so
because you are a bit weird like when we were doing the stuff with the dieting where you're going on dates when people you had more pushback with the idea of going sitting in an N das Yeah. Then you did on the actual data itself. And didn't you cook for both the dates that you went on?
I didn't cook on this
Second one, we I mean we might paces and so what's the Why are you funny about eating out?
I can tell this is gonna be good because you you've got a bit read
this I think it's I don't want a number one I don't want to go to a place where it's like I'm not gonna like the food easy But hang on. How do you know now say I don't but you know they're like they're cuisines that I'm just like I wouldn't be too keen on. Well, I think Japanese would be one of them. I want to be keen on Japanese. I don't know. I just but you like sushi?
sushi. Oh, there's multiple sushi. Sushi is a shame me. Yes. He said the other day. He ate fish for the first time
at LEPOP said Mike. I loved it.
tasted like chicken, or something like that. Yeah. And so
what's the anxiety rent because the thing is you, I think if you could have your way, you would have Whole Foods. But I feel like we're just creating this culture. Don't you think that we will be sad? Looking back I know that when I went to Thailand, and brain I was our first trip and we went to the coffee club, like every lunch and we had the same Roz Bry
there's a lot of restaurants eliminated because the vegetarian diet like I'm just like, pulling back SDK state joined sushi pack, like the taco stuff was made actually, Spencer who were catching up with on Friday, he he sent me a link I haven't even written back to him because I don't know what to do. He's suggested a chicken and waffle.
to just go and I just get waffle. Yeah, yeah, definitely. Yeah. Anyway,
Do you know what it is? Does your family get where does Where do your family go when you go out to dinner? We don't really go out there. When do when when we do
the there's a Vietnamese place in the city
maybe code I think it might be called uncle potentially calling straight and so you really is wanting Bella Do you think you would go to the once a week do you go out? No, no one to four as a family or just you How often do you wait out?
Well, Harry's chickens close now. Oh, they wouldn't have
Yeah, so you never bought into you know, Shannon said 97. I'm a bit similar. I'm so fussy with food. If I get surf ship food in a restaurant, I feel one ripped off money wise to I could have cooked better and been happier with good food. Haha. She said I love food. And when it did
disappoints me. I get the sheets. I don't know, I just I just feel like I've got I've got more control and can dial in the healthiness versus eating. It's a control freak. But Whole Foods ticks the boxes for you. Yeah, because there's so much there that you can pick from. Yeah, I mean, that is the that's the trap of it. Do you think that you worry too much about fucking things causing you cancer? In all seriousness? Yeah, definitely.
Looking into sunglasses,
because he's not quite sure that the research has been done on whether
you're worried that sunglasses cause cancer? No, no, I just I've heard I've heard from different places. That the Sunglass Hut No no, no, no, no Specsavers.
No Yeah, this everywhere your mom's work.
Apparently you've got like light receptors in your eyes that I mean, I really do you do you
But you but it it stimulates the production I think it is a melanin or something in your skin which allows you to have better skin protection naturally from the way do you get this? Where do you get all of this stuff, bro science is watching right
now Andrea would have nowaday it was on it was on it was on one podcast and SH and so does your mom and dad really when you're growing up with I like obsessing about what you were consuming. Not really. I mean dad wouldn't be happy that I'm looking into sunglasses as he is
not as in as any he just he just think it's ridiculous and I should always wear Sonny's Right. Which is fair enough. Like he doesn't have blue eyes. I mean blue eyes. You've done a great job. Josh driving around here because usually blue our blue eyed babies is squinting all the time.
There's something more sensitive about blue eyes than the sun is out. The sun is a high
When you need a prescription Kathleen says she likes my songs. Thanks halfway from happy so I'll read you the message that Mr. Nice heavens crafted send off to that. Here we go. Hey, Mary dead. We just want to check in. We've got a few dirty clothes from being our night out during the day to be honest it sounds like you're asking him to wash
your good to use the dryer and washing machine each night when we get home. I love this. The place has been fantastic. Thank you. That's a good message. So the saga continues just went out gronk for doing that. Yeah. So we're here for him. And he did say that with like, because he told us about the washing machine. I know that every night that's the shower each night. I don't think I will have used it nine times. So it's a truthful message. So night before we go on, I think I will have used it nine times. But I will wash.
Wash to know wash your clothes. I wish she was too. I was just going to hang out on potentially like the balcony. Awesome. So what about
Do it. Every time I go to the US, I go to a fault like wash and fold, wash, dry and fold. And they do it all put it in the bag and it's done.
That was the irresponsible trip I took in 2012 is
getting Washington fall it's actually in the in the US. It's so cheap. I know. But now I spent more on in North Carolina when I got a ton. I spent more on the tip. Because it was embarrassingly light. Like I think it was the all my clothes for like $8 New York, New York. Washington fault. But yes, that is an interesting thing. Like there is a bunch of those services that seem to be doing well here or seem to be in business. So what are the other first because 97 I've been thinking about it like I have been giving you the benefit of the doubt, as if you want to explore, but we don't we're going to have to force you because if it's up to you, you're not going to do anything. You won't do anything.
What are some other firsts? You had your black coffee? ham? I was worried. Last last night I was watching or listening to a podcast. It was two comedians and was does that mean nice?
But I can actually tell by breathing and moving around the podcast he's on
room. I also knew because every time they laughed and I laughed, nice
put on the fucking audio.
I get it. It's quite intense now, but I think what we're seeing is a collision of our own routines. When you think you're a bit of a control freak. me Yeah, I think Yeah, yeah, I am to
this three control freaks in this room.
He's talking about having a dialed in diet yeah while he's fucking traveling the state Don't you think i think that you and I you love pointing telling me what line to be in yeah just doing that fucking I get it also when you do go polity we do that with your hands is fucking nothing more
yeah thank you for
a great point is you're doing well when you driving over here
I can't turn I agree with your point you have to do a quick decision with back home of like just rip it arrived which is like a comprehension of if I just turn the wheel now. There's a fucking there's a chance that they could be a fucking bus coming. Yeah, I guess I was happy with myself because I articulated in that moment because he'd been doing a
mistake I missed it. And then I realized was like I can just say I'm surprised at how much you don't take even though it's one thing
I've actually never realized about you is the amount that you don't take what about what's happening? Or you know, like some directions that we will walk past the house or you
the amount of times that you've walked by
me, I think you just, you
know, I know. I have to actively think, do these things matter? Do I need to worry about this thing? That's what I mean. That's it's not some I don't know the only straight I know it's Fairfax.
To be honest, I'm not sure if it's that straight or that straight? I've never thought about it, Mr. Nice and what's your
sense of direction? What do you do you have you got a grasp of the sense Do you think it is sense of direction, I feel like it's more I feel if it's less sense of direction and more. A focus on knowing where you are. Maybe that is sense of directions of direction, you've downloaded a map and you understand where you are, but you definitely
yourself like we had a meeting the day before we left you having this real sort of bro a conversation with the client about IF and on it. What's that place called? IF banana mango, banana bundle II the hostile man Have you tried to? It was a stick swinging match of how a straight she could mention. Oh, yeah. What about on third? on the on the fly? Yeah, I wonder if that place is still there. Yeah, yeah. You know what I mean? Yeah, you point what's the point? You just you love a good fucking corner? I mean, how many times he's been asked, Have you stayed here and you had to fucking What do you mean? Like, hey, you don't remember if you've even stayed in a hotel or not? Yeah, I know. It's crazy. No, it's crazy, because you do remember a lot. But yeah, I got a lot of hours on. So you gotta ask the question. Do you think you got a good sense of direction? Like you? Thanks, Emma. Now, I mean, while while we're here I've been trying to like I guess actively sort of dying a sense of direction. So I was like,
When we went to what did we do Burbank, we went to Burbank I was just like zooming out on the map and seeing where that was in relation to
in terms of like Santa Monica and then when we went down to ocean view, side side
that's why it's funny. Now I get it. And I find unlike that with things like Europe,
I still struggle with your Europe. I've been I've spent
three months of my life in Europe struggle, like I have to zooming out thing helps I this is this is where I mean this. To be fair, this place is pretty easy to get a grasp of it's very much like to create a grid with straits. Yeah, but it's been a big day we we first headed over to Culver City. We chatted last we chatted with a designer, named
Brooks Atwood, and he's a he's part of a firm called office untitled. And they're like a, an agency that they sort of I would say that their specialty is in architecture, but then they do real fucking wacky stuff here. SoCal, their office was great. So their toilets. He had he gave us a tour of their toilets in one toilet. They've taken all these, like pool noodles. Yeah, don't pull noodles out and 97 Yeah, okay. They've cut them up into short sort of about, I don't know 20 centimeter pieces. And they've put them all across the wall. Yeah, but it's created look on our Instagram stories. is are you happy with the 20 centimeters away? No, there was different size it was I reckon it probably would have been an average of maybe 12 centimeters. He's done yeah, eight man if I can say you fact about centimeters. I mean
You said this day not too long. That's too long. Now let's do it. 2020 now, I think that you're backing up because of your perception. Now.
Can we ask Brooks
Brooks, can you please measure average size of how you do it?
So I took like a selfie. Then we got a photo in there. It's a weird place to get your photos but it's all good. And then we went to the same place called the city and we went to a radio station. Yeah, we saw Zach sang. So Zach sang is a radio DJ. He started in his bedroom and now he has this fucking amazing studio at Westwood One is the is the company syndicated to like 70 different radio stations it's amazing the studio so great screens everywhere. Amazing cat like the guests. He has Miley Cyrus Justin Bieber Justin Bieber One Direction Ariana Grande a fucking ridiculous
superstars, any fucking lettuce it
legit Yeah. And we met he's dog Louie
who was biting me. I actually have good was I as someone who I'm not not adult person
but uh because even my race Michel said, I judge people with funny because he said, I judge people
that train animals. And then since then someone said something about kicking dogs guess what you got to kick him? You know, he said yeah, but
he's had beautiful animals and he's love and he's a great person but anyway, How good was I with Zach dog? Well, I invited the dog up onto the couch. What about No, I mean before when we were, I was I don't go, don't go. And the funny thing was exactly then said I love how you decide to go
and then he was saying it
Clinton 97 I think that 97 said that you didn't like it. I didn't even throw you under the bus and pretty dodgy. Yeah.
Anyway, SX hangs on the show. Very generous to let us say amazing we I saw that we just drove past and I saw that there was a cafe that is from Sydney bonsai harvest. and friend of mine owns that guy. I haven't seen him in years. And I went in there. We went in there. And I saw him down the back cookin. So that was amazing to see someone
going through a lot of all the cafes. Yeah, that was a cool spot though. And then we saw my friend Josh Simon, your friend. Yeah, thank you. We had him on my 98 Episode 198. So we went to a cool music studio in Burbank. Yeah, we interesting vibe over there.
I've seen Conan he shows in Burbank. It's a
I wish we'd gotten there are
Because there's a great store called film tools, which I was telling you earlier, which is like, so there's b&h in New York, which is sort of like it's got everything or cameras and all that sort of thing. But there's film tools is specifically for film production. So you have like, crazy bike rigs. with cameras on them. You have bike, every type of gaffer tape. It's pretty cool. The now there is something geeky about like a film store. There's actually a store I think it was Sam's or something just down the road, which I saw. One thing we need to do before we go is I asked Targa, who is a
creative producer at Capitol Records. She we're having her on the show, too. I asked her, is there any lookouts that we can drive to once you say and she said yes, Mulholland Drive is a cool look at you drive up and then you park and walk down. She told me about it a little bit. We can sort of skip over
We have people then go got into some rocks we can look at over Hollywood. What about going to Santa Barbara? too far? I think it's a bit far. I mean, people were surprised we went as far as ocean siloed Greenham because this is the thing I am I always got to be honest Santa Monica is one that all these places I get confused with. And so I think when we're going to Santa Monica, I actually had vivid memories of Santa Barbara.
Santa Barbara is further I'll tell you how far away it is. But I reckon two hours, two hours and 29
what are the good hour and a half? So today? No Santa Barbara is beautiful. And I have a feel like
they've got like a PR and all that sort of thing. I don't know whether we can go but I remember enjoying them a lot. Yeah, the weeks flying but we we've got catching up with
Matt de Villa tomorrow. Yeah, so we're doing a video with him. It comes out on November 19. No pressure now, Matt that you've told us we need to release. Yeah. I'm excited for that. That'll be it will be good fun we'll have
we're doing some shows with him but then also having the cameras. Cameras always turned on us. Let's be honest. Yeah. I was gonna say, you know, did the thing like cameras are turned on us. But then I realized the
Campbell said Hayden, would love checking out all that gaffer tape it made he would the gaffer tape is great. By the white Campbell. We need we need not to send 97 out on a straight photography. disposable camera disposable, like
throw it in the bin. Yeah, that's how they feel. So Campbell, Campbell loves taking film photography, and he very generously gave us a gag Mr. 97 account.
camera with some film. So you can go out and about and take photos. Problem is, we don't know how quick we are of actually installing the film yet. We use the camera. It's very easy. You just turn it on and
I've said that before more often.
I think you'd get about 24 photos. But we've got only four. I think there's something in doing a photo. Oh, there's something fun about us doing as many different sort of cliche photos. So we're going to go outside the big pink wall. Yes, I mean, I've almost got to be like a one take one with the Cameron Well, you have to be one shorter that he says porn couch. Tom night. This is a casting couch if you've ever seen one, doing a lifestyle.
Doing a lifestyle to them the episode. Anyway. Great. It's the daily talk show. It's currently 8:45pm and ally babies Todd
