It's the daily Talk
Show Episode 587 got race Mitchell in the building, all the way from Los Angeles, California
all the way from Collingwood. I've been here for a few months.
Well last time we were on the front steps of our air b&b, we've upgraded to what you've dubbed the sauna.
Yeah, it looks like a sauna. I think that
as a episode pitch,
you should do one in a sauna. We've thought about it nice. And where the sweaters I see how long you can lie.
I'm actually more comfortable wearing sweaters in there. You know, just getting my rig out.
When you go very quick, you'll be very quickly just because you'd be so fucking hard to be so yuck.
Did you when you guys were playing like sports as kids did you ever play remember that would make some kids be skins.
Now what do you mean they'd make?
So you'd have who's today? So yeah, so that would have two teams like okay, half asleep. And so half of the people have to take their tops off. So you know who's on which team
as in skins is in bed you take it all right what was the name of your co
Wait Yeah, we went to a prestigious private
yeah fetish shirts and skins. Yeah, sure it sounds kind of rough Nova Scotia. No
it was it was at the footy club. Mason, nice I've heard of I've never, never experienced I played
footy for carbon. There was different jumpers like they sometimes had.
ribbons and this is the thing though, definitely. They're probably gotten rid of skin
and so you're saying you had to get your rig at one.
So that would
separate the teams into two. And so I would just focus on skins like okay, yeah, Josh is taking your skins that's humiliating, actually. And if you've done Feel comfortable doing, especially because I used to run around the oval and I was always the last to finish and no one could start training until everyone had finished running around. And so the whole team would come and cheer me on as I ran the final lap on my own
was the teacher ever in scan. It wasn't, it was the actual footy club
was the coach and city coach, he would always qualify.
The coach had he's a hobby
boy, the coach and he was a hairdresser actually. Drake. Okay.
Definitely, he's always just like, you always like he's doing massage gestures with his hands. Anyway.
There's a record of this because you're going to need it's
not It was fun. Okay, happy FET Friday's race. It's your first
and cheat day.
Yeah, but you've already you've already bland.
Yeah, I forgot what we're doing.
Hi Eggs. How many to
bread all the
way from? I'm not sure.
My girlfriend's house she had all this
bread. There is a lot going on here guys. It's very heavy what I've got Mr. 97 can you run us through what you've got? You got doordash No, we went and they using doordash
What does that mean that they're using just doordash stickers?
This is BM. Yeah. Okay, so that's the big mock there are two of them. laughy Tommy having it not having I've already had it before I counted on because I it's it's silly.
I didn't know you've had it before. You didn't tell me that. Yeah,
but we can
this is a all vegan burger place on Smith straight. I just don't wanna have the same thing to us. I want to try something well,
I have a feeling it's going to end up in a blow up. Potentially
not just fucking switching
Services has organised
a range of shit.
He's gone specifically for what he thinks people would want
All right, that's not how it's gonna roll.
Oh my god this is troubling the sauna. This is
sorry. Who wants a Big Mac? I got it. racist. Someone else coming your way George George has been
from this is from Greenberg in Collingwood.
Oh that's great. Yeah.
And so there's some sort of feels like it's a tonne
there to burritos
if you want I'm not gonna know that's all that is
that's very heavy. What's in the burrito? Mr.
We're getting there we got lock is still a shitload more or chippies
was data chips I mean, chips are vegetarian is a standard of it this
week kind of sweet but candied What are they mad? Yeah, so they've they've got on no Za let's look at like
oh yeah so it's I think it's got some sort of like cookies and cream flavouring on top of the
chips. Are they good? And
he's another burrito so George has the kernel which is chickens chicken,
but not actually chicken. Right.
And you got a burrito Nice. Yeah. Yeah. Okay, we'll take a brush I'll just a
I haven't eaten McDonald's in God knows. Smells like
yes I see a big man it's not a Big Mac
Yes. I've ever attempted to create a Big Mac based on that smell talking to the microphone.
Okay, if I if I was blindfolded and someone This is such a weird scenario.
If his old footy coach tied me up
in skins and put this near me and said what is bad This is a Big Mac
exactly like what yeah does it smells exactly that one since the 90s
I would say but really missing out
show you the reason I went plant based is because Ray says can we do video? I said yeah. Oh my god I wish we had scales because I'd why this thing that this burrito no joke is is I mean it's got a it's a full pop flat solid it
really is like holding and pop plan. Well like I really think lizard. It's like eating a boat or something. What do you think Georgia vs heavy
It's so good. Really? Really? It's delicious. any better than the meat veggie?
Because Yeah, last week you were he's not a vegetarian, a vegetarian, vegan chicken. Right. But you're George. You ate meat? I do. Yeah. Okay. But this tastes like chicken. Really nice. Like I say, Can you show me I don't know. But yeah.
Don't buy this crying. Oh my god they're in skins. Sharing burgers This is Katie.
Oh my God look at that.
It looks like fried chicken Yeah, it just looks at me It really does. I have one more bite of
mine I've had about two bites of that major okay not good enough
so where is this from again? Greenberger were about 240 Smith street I think it is
that was good memory
Do they know that their foods gonna end up on a show no.
Interesting so no obligation to say nice things if you don't think it's good.
I'm just gonna get enough you guys
know I'm actually like, I'm actually
impressed. It does taste like a test like a real bug when you when you come to Melbourne. What what food feels like home for you. Avocado
and I know that everywhere but and also cheaper in California reminds me Melvin like a smashed happen.
Do you think that the Dabo in the US is different to that of Australia?
I think so. I think the produce is different. I prefer the produce. Yeah, yeah. Yeah. I same pressure here.
Yeah. I mean, where are you being at? We should go to is in Melbourne. Oh, do you want this now? You want this? Yeah, I'll just put it over here.
I guess I make a lot of stuff. Really? Yeah. You know, yeah.
Whoo. You went to Whole Foods or you go somewhere else. What's the place you go?
are in the state? Yeah. Um, yeah. I'll go for shopping. Yeah,
yeah, go there. Try to Jos maybe we didn't have really the equivalent in Australia in a big way of what like Whole Foods that you've got
India and it's gone. about life is
always good. It was in Sydney. So it was huge.
In double Bay, affluent suburb, lots of money, lots of people spending cash that couldn't survive, which You saw just disappointing I mean I went over Christmas
like oh let's go there and get some food but you're not there.
Well words have done a version of it. Look what as I say seven look up about life double Bay and I'll come up with the more words words equivalent it's like Delhi they make pizzas. It's trying to it's trying to be like the whole foods food section and some higher end ship. problem is we don't have enough people here to sustain those kind of businesses think about why businesses in America are open all night is there's as many people there to go and
I know everything seems to shut here like 6pm
Yeah, no name three shops are closed at six.
The six o'clock knock off
no seven Can you look up three shops? How would you look that up? Top in three shops that closed at six. No.
Seriously, what closes at six he's being hyperbolic. Yeah. Nine, one. hyperbolic is it isn't that you've said Something a bank
that post office okay and some pharmacies. Okay.
You're right. Let's leave it.
I also got this for you Josh. I think I thank you. Wow.
Is that the one? We're just we're just
It sounds like a lot.
Not a lot, getting them out as they're not are they?
I feel like I'm being kept out of the loop here. So what is
next slide? Yeah. Cheers. That he's the only one that's the large out of all of them. And I've given it to Josh. Yeah.
That smells amazing. It's
very, it's it doesn't have much weight to it. Not very heavy.
These are vegan, thick shakes. And I missed and I was giving this heaps of hate saying
It actually smells right. Come on. Smell that smell that baby. The smell of strawberry Okay, the burrito scriber the one smell of strawberry good Oh wow. I mean it is I know what you mean
it's on the fake end of strove right right? but not quite like the
fake strawberry I tried like the fake flavours you know I'm a fake kind of guy
that says like I'm Nesquik
I'm fine thank you you don't like sharing scrolls and stuff no I don't mind actually don't mind I say it is a rapport building exercise here I have some just for geometer a deep throat as well
no you're good do you Whatever makes you comfortable you coach
chocolate What do you guys want chocolate
I love this a lot. I'm I'm not touching
this is Yeah, well. This is low key. Yeah. It's not really cash you know
that has a real sophistication about it. Too hard but your search for the flavour like this is that's his face. Yeah, it's really like I'm here.
Do you feel like you're on holidays when you're coming back to Melbourne?
Not really. I mean, you know because Okay,
yes I know. I think catching up with everybody sometimes feels hard I know that's a good problem but seeing your friends and family and yeah, I always am letting someone down because I'm not here for that long so that feels bad. I know cuz I
got to let down to
the name of my autobiography let
down like a lot of people.
That great show on ABC. Anyway,
have you ever considered doing like a drinks we like Hi everyone. Oh, you degrade relationships. I don't have time. That's a great preface. Just everyone I just say like you know, just like it. So if you've got Different levels you got to see your family got to say like you get to a point where it's like, hang on. Do I have time? for everyone? Right? Have you considered just having an open door policy at a local pub? That people I've never done this in my life by here? That's what people's that's a good idea.
I also maybe don't want to do it. Yeah.
It seems like stressful. I think
the difference with you race between
and myself to some degree. You have a lot of friends. Yeah, like a lot of but like, Did you say races? Instagram when he's when he was his birthday last week. Happy Birthday birthday. Happy birthday, guys. Yeah,
thank you. 3223. I am
just kidding. I'm in LA. I'm 23 in Australia. I'm 32
shots by the way. They were beautiful. Thank you. 23 year old headshot. Yeah.
So he got a lot of friends. So many people doing an Instagram story saying Happy birthday. Yeah, it's It's your influence of friends that love to get on the Instagram. How many of those people are actually texting you and saying Happy birthday?
I don't know them? Oh, you don't know.
It was a promotion post. I just did a boost or whatever.
Yeah, it's a cameo integration.
I know them. I mean, it would be nuts if I didn't know them. Right?
Oh, you you asked if I if they got if they face Did you as well? Or they just they version of me? Maybe they me? That's probably the version of a text, right? Do you
have a hierarchy within sort of columns? That is the most sort of meaningful to the least WhatsApp versus text message
versus Instagram, sending him
like the most? What? I love an email.
Oh, you don't want to be email buddy?
I'd love to do you have an email signature?
It says thank you and I have a picture of a kangaroo.
Your name on the signature?
No, just my initials are I love that.
Yeah, I mean, the that's the ultimate power move and when you have, because the idea of an initial is to make it easy for you. Yep. And what you're saying is I don't have time to write my name when doing the signature.
Yeah. And it's automated.
Yeah. So no, I love to. So
I love email and text message. text message.
or then the Instagram message. If I know you if I don't know you please don't.
Internet they me. What if
you would prefer someone who doesn't know you to text you rather than dm? Know? Someone? I don't know. Don't contact you
contact. What about new relationships? Um, yeah, I guess. I don't know. I love that. Sounds good. That was great. sound like you're squeezing into a tight boot. In front of the code.
Oh, God, sorry. That's fine. Okay. Try the chocolate.
Yeah, I don't know. I don't. Who wants to chat to people that don't know that. See ya.
by friends we're doing friends get email. Number one, you have an email, and it's almost like it comes up on my phone. It's like a texts like it's the best loving email. Yeah. Then text message. And then Instagram dm is I hate talking on phone call Is it is it? I don't answer phone calls. They freak me Why?
I don't know what about like, say if it's me for fucking nearly 20 years 25 years. Now what are we 23? That's impossible.
Yeah, I you know what i'd love? Um, can I give you a call? Yeah, right now let's go to Wednesday and then do it. I don't like the unexpected phone call. I think I always associate it with bad news. Why?
If you think about it,
I always think you call me because there's been an emergency
or I have done that in the past. Well, yeah,
maybe that has
a phone call. That was horrible.
So maybe that's part of my heart issue with it. And it's not just you. It's with everyone. What about
you? girlfriend. I haven't met her. She seems lovely. She's all she does great music.
Yeah, let's give her a plug. What sort of music we're on the show. Yeah, we put her on the show. Yeah, we'll
ask her I don't know the correct terminology.
Put her on the show. The best one is Chicago coconut energy. It's all it's all coconut coconut. They're all coconut base. So
yeah, so with it what about with the arm? What about with the Miss up?
Yeah, I don't know that you
are you talking on the phone?
It's like a call with a burger.
They're always doing interrogations, but I can't help myself.
Would you say that like when you watch interrogations because they go for hours? Yeah, they having lunch
can be good without eating the person they're interrogating lunch as a power move
absolutely This is I'm really happy with what was in the burrito by the way steps
black beans, avocado lettuce and then the chicken alternative fully it has the texture of chicken yeah wow
okay so you You're so like think tank we all know
we're doing a think tank
yeah think tank you get together say I reckon like what's up McCain's fried in the frozen meals they get together and test in a room and yeah to hang around the fly of Israel should we call this? What's it
call it tanks who think I want 21 for laundry powder.
Do what for
you know i
in Australia many years ago and
surely that was sort of like some kind of
So friend, utterly boring,
terrible, actually, a lady who taught me how to shoot super eight at VCA. Her main gig was market research. It was up and she would do basically a you'd end up on a list. I should teach you super eight and she's like, by the way, just before I go everyone if anyone wants to make some quick cash, and so I reckon I still got that get the a mouse.
I guess she knows that because your only skill is super photography. You're unemployable.
Essentially, it's, I'm George, could you grab the tissues?
Just got baby babies.
So that's self love and self care. What's that Kleenex? Yeah. Would you like them? Yeah.
Do you have Kleenex in the US? I'm sure that where it's gonna smell Eucalyptus
I assume The big brand
like the lookup Kleenex
oh my god
Dyson. We're trying to we're trying to discover where the
baby needs to know about Kleenex.
Yeah baby needs to know about his clinic but his baby's Kleenex from America.
Let's go got very strong Leanna vibes I feel Eucalyptus smell, is it Eucalyptus? It is isn't it? Okay,
this is a tour de force you lock it put that on their website what is tour de force main
you know? Now how awful to de force What is the name? You know that? What's the Tour de France? Yeah, force inside to a divorce is this is a race? No, to a day what is today may
look it up
the definition of tour de force. It's like a journey,
strength and power. It's like it's a performance or a change. That's been accomplished or manage with great skill.
Us. Us Yeah,
you know janessa quoi doesn't that mean I don't know
why is that
there's something a bit so generous acquire about George but doesn't mean anything now It means it means which nice haven't gone by the way
he took off he's getting some chemistry it's been like I
know the Genesis acquired means like that is quirky it's hard to It's hard to explain it's just got something wow about it was like all Genesis what
what is the actual translation? George
says can you come back now we'll just ask George a question and he's just he doesn't we just want to know the definition
others like your final your your special touch
or something generous I think it is writing the actual translation doesn't mean
anything. What's the dip? What's the translation of Genesis? I think
the idea is that you don't really know what the thing is. You use that phrase because it's a certain feeling or energy that it evokes, but we don't know what it is. So you need more than I did. And you let me try and explain like an idiot. I could be wrong. Let's find out and in the finished indefensible quality that makes something distinctive or attractive. I think I think we will both Right. Yeah.
Great. I think like my personality is very generous acquire
something that you can't exactly point out. Now we can put it that
personality. I think we love it. How would you describe it? Um, I would say, I would say, you know, I'd say it's a, you're my pretty like straight edge level, not the right way, but just
your surprisingly eccentric. At first. You might not present that way. But then the more you get to know you realise you're quite quirky, and that's a very lateral way.
That's what I worry about is that like, sometimes I think maybe I need to do things to communicate that I'm weirder because I met you wearing shorts and running shorts.
This is the weirdest business meeting. sending signals. Nothing. I can't do the suede chip.
He walked because of calories. Because like I don't want to get
diabetes. He's not
a doctor sugar on the show tomorrow. Hey, you should
I just had my checks. I kept getting really tired at the end of the day.
Really? It's what are you waiting at the end of the day?
Those do come true. I'm George. You
know, I just I don't know. It's fine. My sugars are fine. I throws crashes given to master because ever since I stopped drinking alcohol. I haven't had 111 beer because it was mainly beer. Yeah, we love our beer. I haven't had one beer for seven months or so.
one drop of alcohol one drop of alcohol guy. Yeah.
Um, and I found that I've developed a
sugar addiction. You know, I ever say to feel something what do you
what do you wait?
Well, I just find myself shoe foods.
Either so I never used to eat sweets and stuff but now I'll be like oh I wouldn't mind cake.
You know what the fuck
is that about cake or my 10 billion should not eat cake. Something so pathetic about we're like, just eat or we have to eat this little soft sweet thing it's so pathetic we're addicted to those things don't you think? Well we can't beat this tiny little sweet cupcake like that always beta
i think the most authentic it my dad calls it a slither I just have a sliver sliver. Yeah.
It's a better approach though.
No, but the thing is he never wants a sliver wait. Yeah, there's something I think it's nothing more pathetic about it when someone says Would you like a piece of cake if you respond just a sliver. Don't fuck yourself. Well
you need done over a bunch of small pieces or what
you want to have. You want to have a bit of that one and that what you want to be the sponge cake
as well as the I know what you mean. I kind of like that. sleep at night because it's like you're not being
with that sliver. Its first live.
You know what I love about this show? It is so rogue like it's always going off road. And no matter what direction you think you're heading in, you're not going the other way. But I always have this sense of like, okay, we're about to start.
And then it just ends. I like that about it is I feel like I feel so relaxed on this show. You're
saying slip slip. It's a sliver.
sliver. sliver. That's why we say cause Ron George because I say slither, and then someone corrected me on a podcast.
I mean, that's it isn't that life. Life is about being corrected for words and then finding other people that you can correct on the fact I know that's you. That's your personality. Quirk is right there.
Because I think you do it more than most. Like just just on general because I think I don't give a fuck what I like if it's wrong. I don't care.
Are you happy to learn and move? And
yeah, we'll like as much as that. I slowly change. And so it's like it starts with anger.
People feel like I think the people who tell people to change it, it's a projection of some kind of raised, you know, my mom. Yeah feel fear of like my day how they felt with it.
My dad always corrected my language, because I taught English for a long time at school. So that was a big thing in the household. I remember
I did a whole video. Again, this is a VCA thing short film, and I was starring in it because I couldn't. The person I wanted to get it wouldn't wouldn't start so I told. Jonathan aldehyde is a strange film. Anyway, he did the event demons land. Oh, wow. Yeah. He directed that. And so he was one of the the, the like, not lectures, but like one of the people it was like teen flicks, this is going back 2005 We'll see. And I played this character. And in it I said advertisement, and my mom said, that's the American advertisement. advertisement advertisement. Yeah, I'd fuck the whole film. Well, not really. I was an Australian character doesn't matter. Maybe he lived abroad for a while.
And you're going for an American audience. I didn't have that sort of perspective.
What are your films? I haven't shot yet.
at all, by the way. Huh? excited about the idea that Tommy's done. Oh my god. What? Oh, no, it'd be good for for the proposal of proposing to me he dubbed it
well, I did record the audio but it was very shit fixed at the vows and then there was a guy
says it God that's pretty quick to criticise other people. It was man.
driven from fear of past.
and he was next to the water. I know we could hear with the water. I said I reckon if you debate debate Just say, will you marry me? Live that would be great like that would just seal the deal. Just make it a lot stronger. Anyway, not only did he do that, but he got me to say it's almost
a soap opera was one take
She was pissed off about doing it. She didn't want to do it. And I got her in one take. It was really well, Sheila, you know what? vodi will appreciate it. Cuz he will think it's because you watch it and then you like, Did she say yes. Yeah,
she don't know. But now you do know because it's
a cliffhanger. You couldn't cut to an ad break. And then are you That's true.
Start season two. She says yeah,
I'll do it real close up on her mouth. Yes.
That's actually a good idea. You have you done much idea in your life. Yeah, a lot.
It's huge in movies. I saw a guy and Stapleton know, a guy doing this series over in America. It's just finished up but you'd like he's like I'm spending three days in idea.
Yeah, for the season show.
I forgot to record audio
What is it i doing it outside?
It might be Yeah, there might be a number of issues.
And so, like that could be to do with whether
you're listening back to your dialogue. It was really shared. Yeah. And then you're saying it as you're hearing it
exactly. Or they might want to change the tone or intonation or they might want to add lines you know?
And is it look the site like a you
know, Matt jack with the time
Yeah, like it will have the text on the screen and you'll see your the pace that they want to record, and then they'll play it over. And there's different ways to do it. You can just like you can multiple auditions, copy, like repeat and copy here and copy it. To say more clear that all there might be, you might have like the director or someone telling you they want a different slightly different performance,
about different lines. Like obviously if your backs turned. Yeah, I found that a couple of times in films where it's like, oh, I'll get a script. On the thing, so we're adding this and stuff. Yeah, it's crazy, isn't it? Yeah.
Why they like still in so many movies there. If you look for the cross shoulder dialogue saying, and they're not the person speakings faces and on camera, we can see jaw movement. And you know, it's not in time with the
But it's amazing how bigger productions do that.
Yeah, it's still it's still impossible to get it perfect.
Really? Well, I've heard of actors that like will leave at the time that they are doing the over shoulder stuff. They're lazy. I'm not gonna stand in the standing to come in.
Have you ever had to stand in?
Um, yeah, I have.
I had one on the film I did in Utah.
Is this one when speaking the hot tub you're in the hot tub, the hot tub calling me I love how that I just remember it was literally just
each other and he was in a hot tub.
Yeah, that was skins. They had a Hawkins Gaskins in a hot tub. They the little hotel they put us in had hot tubs on the balcony. Like I spoke about it like endlessly
you face to
face times was a big highlight.
It was a high I mean the guy that doesn't like phone calls actually FaceTime
that's the thing.
yeah work. I week when it comes to I feel sick By the way, when it comes to the phone call Fleming.
such high fat with the coconut.
That's what it is. Yeah.
And he can push himself drinking a large job now that's a potato bun.
What's that mean? It's made of potatoes. Sounds like Yaki. It's a big it's a big rocky
rocky bond Nicole
says pathetic and Yaki been saying
you say it. Like
having a sugar crash on FaceTime. Yeah, like a FaceTime. Strangely, I prefer you to FaceTime me, then phone call me. So you So hard about a FaceTime then a phone call might be devastating news, or no one's gonna FaceTime you'd like something terrible.
Saying I want to show you with but still
insane that you're not saying you'll answer if I do it.
If you FaceTime me I will. Okay, great if I can. I'm not in public or like at the doctors.
I think I'm the problem because I called you when something really bad happened. I do think it changed my brain. It was it was very bad. But 617
my friend passed away
taking these life and I called race. No good.
Would you think of when you were having the compliment before you made the phone call?
Nothing because I just got off the fucking phone with his mum,
who'd called me that's a trippy phone call to wish she didn't call it was done a different way.
It was her way of doing it. But I literally said to her
it's a joke, right? And
like it was a dumbest thing to ever say because obviously, someone's gonna respond but it was weirdest fucking thing on earth. And so I was about I was in bed going to sleep. And I was it was dark in my room. It was light, remember? Yeah. And then I got that phone call. I was 18 because I went in picked up, Kareem.
Yeah. And then we came to my house. Yeah. And then we went anyway. Yeah and then the next day,
but yeah, so I factor
but I faced having because FaceTime wasn't around then when when that
have WhatsApp isn't around Instagram they had around the FaceTime the video component of it. I talked about it.
I guess I thought it was the it's the video bit. Are you seeing you actually? Yeah, what is it race?
Um, I don't know. I think I like to make our contact. If it's gonna be like, if we're not going to be standing in the same room looking at each other. Put it in writing. So I can show I like the email because it can revisit,
it'd be great. I'd love to start a name
with you. So let's do actually can cool
Cuz my mom used to be right like when I was a kid, she would email her friends every day that emails like this is what I got up to today. What have you are? Yeah, yeah. Richards off doing my dad.
Yeah, yeah, I like it. I like it. Especially with living away sometimes my phone number changes feel really unwell
changes the law. It was
a lot today it's a lot for me. It's just a luxury don't do breakfast. You know I've done to breakfast. Yeah,
make Peter six eggs in the morning. Well,
If he's not a brain and stuff, it's
is good. Good. Yeah. I mean, it's good. Like it would actually feel lighter than having one bite of the naki. But
you're probably right like Joe says Pete lift weights like the power of CrossFit. Yes, CrossFit. Tell me about CrossFit. He's six foot seven. I want to hear about CrossFit.
I'm serious, you know that keeping Yeah. gym as we speak about kipping before i doing a Kip.
Yeah. Yeah, I used to compete in gymnastics. Always shoulders. My shoulders. Okay, good. Broad
I always worried about shoulders when it comes to geminus stuff. A lot of pressure on the shoulders. Yeah. Just give up Jim. Yeah, you're fine.
You're talking to someone who's been doing gym since he was five. He was six.
The issue is my knees and ankles are fucked.
What do you mean you've been doing? gym since you were five or six? tech detectives back?
The food's gone. So he's angry.
I got into
pitch fat pigs to CBS or ABC or can I go for you to a cartoon? Yeah, should a guy over a
ship We're going to talk to you in a moment. What do you want? Yeah, I'm gonna write the ticket the Uber ride distracted
with the food and argue over and never get the confession that
no so even though I felt
it almost feels like he's trying to get enough it feels like there's a tipping point at the moment knowing my throat but feels like if I get enough Oakley you don't be good if we all puke Why don't we be such it's it's the equivalent of like when you've got a drain the blocks and you've got one of two options you can either try and get down or you can add more water with the hope that all go down. what's right. Sink like
you obviously need to clean this down. What do you budget
because it's got balsamic in it get
the strawberry shake has both semi.
Okay, this is like there's one person who works there. Who is too eccentric for this job. fine artist he's trying to be like on master chef, but with making smoothies Oh wow.
I got fired from Attica
see farm and mushroom farm and Yaki vinegar strawberry shake.
There's not many plateaued completely vegan plant based burger places in Melbourne.
There's a shitload in LA yeah but we don't have the
Caprio is like an investor like beyond main so what about the run by famous people the burger shops so it was a paper straw. Yeah, yeah what it does for turtles and penguins that really hard to use? Yeah, yeah.
It's a nightmare.
Yeah, it's what it doesn't do for them.
Yeah, I think we should just like get rid of straws. Who need to stroll
everyone in America, but that
should be illegal. If you bleach your tape.
straws, the ones
that's the only time you shouldn't be allowed to use a paper straw When you bleach your teeth otherwise just drink it
we can use it I'm worried that say with something like this that if it's not properly sort of blended that you might get a chunk in the head what do you do it like that and then a piece of banana hits you well how did it hit you in the head because if you're tipping it back How hard is finishing if you get near the end you know you get near the end you can be on a whole
90 degree angle but on a hit in the face. Well Could I think it's happened
it's bounced back you've
got stuff on my nose before from doing the
I think I think for the damage that straws doing the world it's worth taking a couple bananas to the face.
I'm still curious about the five or six g we're going to the gym, new fibre think
he's thinking I did like I
did like the kids gym like kimbra whatever was called and then I just continued to do gymnastics. Jim so that's different to the gym because you
know, I did I went I did gymnastics like trained in gymnastics
it was relevant to say gym in the context of us talking about him doing
what you said he was so fit I so if it had been going to the gym gym
it's a gym, okay?
They call a gym. It's just yeah. And so could you do a backflip? Yeah, you know the weirdest thing was I
learned how to run up a wall and do a backflip
in a dream because I didn't in a dream
I saw myself doing I saw a very very visceral
dream of me running up a wall doing a backflip and then I went to the down the street taking Gabby for a walk my dog
ever walk one of those dogs in the family for seven seconds like
a sibling becomes a what sort of person Hungarian
vizla with a thyroid problem. Oh yeah, huge.
wag the shit out of its out. Yeah, it gets so much momentum wagging its tail that it
would wobble. It's like it's back. It's spinning. You know, it had a thyroid issue. Oh god. Yeah. When you first got
Yeah, they told us like she's, you know, she's gonna have white issues our whole life. We're like she's got a best personality who cares? You know? What did you fader like regular stuff she was just not sugar every now and then I would give him this hell just because I liked how much he liked it. I gotta say I was not I was not really take. I probably should have respected the fact that she had
you know, like I just let it eat a lot of really yummy stuff.
So someone the other day on Instagram on Insta stories, they cook their dog a $10 steak every night. Yeah,
that's weird. I mean, we did make great food for her too. She was she lived a long time. For a dog that was born sick. She lived a really happy and healthy life. Anywhere took it for a walk. She never really walks because she was very lazy. Get to the beach, and just What you like you know? And then anyway I ran up a wall and did a backflip and she was the only one who witnessed it.
Could you do one after the show? Can we filmed me doing?
That was like so long ago yeah butsu I'd have to
practice I drove for the first time so long guys still can drive
Yeah, okay, I like that pitch
not as much physical exertion
even be bothered justifying that but we are doing it.
But when was the last time you did about I asked you can you do a backflip? You said Yeah. Can you do one? Oh, I like a back.
running up the wall and doing backflips.
I assumed that the running up the wall was easier because it's sort of giving you a bit of momentum. No, it's much harder.
I'm just gonna pop off the wall. I can turn them on the ground from around off a lot easier.
There's some amazing Instagram.
You hurt yourself at all doing one. Yes. Worst injury.
The worst injury I had for a flip was flipping over. I decided salt when the genetics are moved more into just doing acrobatics. I flipped over a box. And I landed on like my ankle. But there was a lot of people around so I just like walk it off like I was fine, but it was terrible pain. Oh, and I think I once landed with two straight legs. Oh, and just felt my knee like, ah, did you?
Did you get an X ray for your ankle? No, because
I was just didn't even I was so young when I competing. I was like, it'll get better. Didn't it did but it always clicks now.
What about surge?
surge? So when we're at wisly there was a gymnastics hole there is amazing, like trampoline with a big pit. So so much cool shit. Anyway, this big Russian Yeah. Gymnastics
thumb and attracts
me I love him.
Yeah, just like he was missing a finger which he said got taken by a bear in Russia.
So we're all so scared of a used to flicker
Yeah. used to do this thing where he'd hold his hand on your forehead and pull A finger back and let it go through
to the boat you know
now I flicking like I use like I do like you flicking action you flicking a cigarette but like a gronk okay but he would hold no no he would hold his hand flat and then pull a finger
and then let go of it and it was he was doing skins and was on my forehead. Why
was it like an accent was a punishment?
You if you didn't do the training at Russian standard quickie
boys just little one
And bang it was like being It was a lot of power came off the
because he had such strong hands like
I always wanted the one that was eaten by a bag.
less of an impact. The Russian kettlebell swings versus American kettlebell swings. Oh my god, what is this there's two different types of kettlebell swing.
They just a different move.
No, it's a different style.
I like the Russian style. I feel like Russians are the toughest people you look up the different sets
that's it. I think the Russian one might be might go up higher. Right so I think or maybe it's the other way around. But the American goat like one goes up to about what's that 90 degree angle whatever. Then one goes above what he finding on it serves. I'm
just reading now you just trying to find something Russian related to add to that conversation? I Well, I was just trying
to work out I've Russians more extreme.
I think they are Have you ever watched Russian dashcam on YouTube? That's all you need to look at to be like, wow, a day in the life of like, living in Russia. If it's like this and you must be pretty
tough. Well think about the cold weather. Yeah,
they're always fighting and stuff on those videos. Yeah, I'm just going off dashcam videos and know nothing about
Russia and and Putin as their dictate Laden.
American kettlebell swings are above the head and then you've Russian Stop at 90 degrees,
rushing, rushing, rushing conservative, Eileen rushing, when it comes to kettlebell swings I'm with Russia. Did you hear?
Did you hear when the Americans got to the moon first? Yeah. And the later the Soviet Union union actually got a bunch of astronauts into a room. And he said, we're going to land on the sun. Is that true? Yeah. And so and then one of the astronauts said, we can't like it's way too hard. And he slapped the guy in the face. He said, no stupid will land at night. Oh, good one. I heard that joke on the weekend.
We should do a Russian accent. I can't.
There's a guy that I started following. Try it again with a Russian accent. Yeah, just to the punch line with the Russian accent.
What will land okay?
Why don't we, we can't land on the sun. It's live. Will you do the accent
now you do it. Okay,
I'm just saying American astronauts. It was a so I know, this is an American. This is an Australian astronaut. Okay, whose lives in Russia and works there like Aaron young from Tigger.
it's not we can't we can't land on the sun. Yeah, it's too hot. You idiot.
We'll go at night.
Is that good?
I don't think it was Russia. It was definitely a choice.
It was a change. I liked it. Said the there's a guy. Yeah. cough. Young comedian. Yeah. yakka why a co V, I think is I start following him on Instagram. Who was a comedian that was real to me and off. You know, Smirnoff the vodka. What's his drink, say his full name? Yakov Smirnoff spin off. Yeah, it was a comedian. But like, when the Americans and the Soviets were fighting, he immigrated to the US and he was getting so much work. Because people like it was a great way of disarming the Soviets and also thing, but as soon as the Soviet Union collapsed, he was out of work. He's now a he's got a doctorate in psychology. I just thought I was I went down this massive rabbit hole
on the weekend you love to research so you say yeah, like if you're interested in the thing you'll go hundred percent find out everything about it.
Yeah, I am actually.
Yeah, I think that I just especially YouTube on the TV. I could watch like, yeah,
you know, when you get into the weird parts of YouTube, y'all thank you for that's like, you know,
they know what would YouTube had some deep Oh, hold I don't go on to the weird stuff. Although, you know, the, the really weird stuff is amazon prime. Like most most, like Amazon Prime have a very low barrier to entry. So we could get a shit where we could get We can put our show on amazon prime. And so the thing is that way I am,
who would have access to is that people in
Australia in the US,
it could do it. But the interesting thing is on the Apple TV, there's a search function, which is quite handy because what it will do is you can search a movie, and it will tell you if it's on any of the platforms like what platforms it's on. So I could type in, say, the daily talk show bad example. Let's say flubber.
Better a better example
than the Daily Show is a real as in the
yet the movie by Rabu Yes, like leaves with Robin Williams.
And so if you searched flubber into Apple TV, it will tell you it will say are this is on Disney plus, this is on Netflix, or if it's not available, you can just rental by it, that's a great one because it's like Normally, you know if you're gonna go on iTunes or whatever you gonna have to pay. Yeah, so this is sort of this global one. So it'll be like oh, it's actually on SBS on demand.
So it's telling you and pushing you away from the product
but it's pushing you to it so it's
Yeah, it's it's but I even signed up for this thing called doc play, which is like a Netflix for documentaries, because they have leverson Woods this adventure
series. Any guy
yeah, he had he's documentaries on the platform and society signed up.
Yeah, sounds good. documentary channel. Yeah.
Doug flay, I want to do another one called curiosity stream.
Yeah, we gotta become email. MPs. Because you can give you like documentaries. Love. What do
you do? Not much about Iran? I'd love to watch a doc on it. Yeah.
What's, what's your biggest thread on email? Like if you got a chain going with somebody that said, you know, if we're doing client client, with agency, it's probably about 70 hours a
week would be my it would be my agent and manager, probably just one giant. Yeah. talking to each other. I saw chatting because we get along really well, but also then we'll talk about what softness about life stuff and then we're talking about that's fun. And as things come in,
how do you feel about like a daily practice of you and I emailing or Is that too much? I'm happy with that many every week day, every week day. Well, yeah, I would say every day I said every day, but that was like, You know what?
All right, too hard. So not weekend. Now.
What about Monday? What about Monday, Mondays emails, like,
what we can do? One word,
one word back and forth. That creates a story and you're both adding to it.
That's more like improv, isn't it?
A male Tommy should jump into
Why you face I'm or even China. Why don't you guys
have Why don't we just like see what see when we need to communicate, when that comes up. So make a rule of it. So I could daily talk show, daily email. We don't need to do that. It's only if we want to chat this out.
I'll give you an example. And I get this. I'm already looking ahead and where it could go. Oh, God. I understand the marriage You know, I understand the nuance. So the same thing happened with Pete who we talked about this exact guy. He
can we just call him six eggs?
That's actually a good nickname six egg. What do you think we can't talk around six eggs? Why don't you just call him eggs? Eggs is good boy a boy.
Well, he's a good man.
Yeah, he's a good man. Now. He's a big man. Sure. Okay. Well big paid.
Paying you York
payday payday. That's funny. Hey, he's good. The peg yes awake. So when we first started hanging out with peg it. I was like execs. Yeah, peg six weeks as
I said, I wanted to start walking with Him.
And I was like, You know what? So walking is a gateway to running. Not in my life. It is okay. But so anyway, so I wanted to walk with a gateway to
the gateway for a lot I you can get a coffee, right? This happened to me by running there.
That way you get a workout in this
workout you're walking is a good like there's a there's a book, brain rules and it talks about benefits of walking anyway.
I feel like he's angry
because he can't tell the guy that exercising, walking.
But peg six loves exercising. Yeah, he's a he's an exercise. He could do Russian kettlebell swings after a few eggs.
Yeah, I could do that. But so I wanted to get the walking cross the line. So what I said to him was I'm like, Hey, I'm reading this book at the moment. Do you want to like we'll both read it and then we'll talk about it. It's got a book club. Yeah, well, I've got that too. I've got a book club. Okay, with the daily talk. She has a book club. I'll give you them. It's really not yet. No, that's cool. We've actually got an update about our affiliate programme. It's changing. Thanks, George. Sorry. The first day when I saw him, I had said, we're going to catch up and talk about the book. I arrived, we stopped walking. I tell him, I haven't read the book. Oh, How'd that go down? It was fine. I was like, yeah, he'd read a bit of it. And so I had asked him, I said, What's the deal with the book didn't tell me. So my second unbreached, sort of audio book. And so he's telling me about it and all that. So I think while eating egg Yeah, exactly. He's already eaten. And so then I said, Oh, like maybe we should do this again sometime before you know it. The reason I tell this story is we now walk every single week and we've done it for talking about both 69 or just nothing. Just talk over 60 weeks, we've done it. So So my point is, yeah, that just like the aim at like you're saying, like I saw the opportunity. I knew that he the idea of Mesa if I said to him, Hey, I want to commit to 60 weeks of walking, said no, just like you with the email. And so I probably missed judged by saying, hey, let's do one a day. I'm just gonna do one a day to me.
Yeah. Well, what did they want to say? It's really sad. 20 days in races.
Good. You're good with a man hoping to 60 6060 days of walking. This
30 days of emailing. I think it'd be fun just to do a regular email. Hi. Great to be quite show every day. It's a law Monday, Wednesday, Friday
night, that's better than every day.
Because then that allows for because obviously the time difference get annoying. You're gonna get internet.
Are you gonna get your account? It could be a massive law.
