It's the daily Talk Show Episode 632 happy Labour Day you absolute animal. Yeah, it's Monday here in Melbourne. What is Labour Day? I've not I mean this is we don't know public holidays in Australia Labour Day Australia. Well, it's specific to Victoria.
It's easier if I do it if you haven't worked it out. You're pulling it up March 2 is when is it? No, it's not. No, it's just like it is Labour Day today. Is this Yeah, it's Victor in Victoria. But I didn't know that there was a public holiday today which I'm appreciative but it's also you don't respect them like you do when you're working for somebody or a big cog in the machine. Sorry man.
still serves to be worked out what a what a bit on Labour Day us anyway. Now we've got George here to dodge Do you know what it means? No idea. I thought live a life of something work.
Work labour like labour die. I know what that would mean Western Australia max Labour Day on the first
day in Australia celebrate our working day if it does what work is in the mid late 19th century was the first word is long celebrates the eight hour working day.
celebration sites. It sounded like
it was you said celebrating I thought I was like, Man, that's a cool word. Celebrate see it working day of injury for workers in the mid to late 19th century, the eighth working day
idelle working what's the victory for what do they win? Nobody's I tend to have more. Essentially, it's been 12 it's a little bit it's a little bit fascinating, to be honest, didn't like their working week. Wasn't that created by industry? Like
you know how we just have a it's drilled into us five days, you know, whatever it is, it was a die. Was it developed?
by industry clothing, no, no, no. I like the Industrial Revolution. Like why is that the norm? Right? Why five ways have breakfast, lunch and dinner? A lot of questions, a lot of questions. Another question is, how am I going to dry my spa? That's what I'm asking that moment. You don't try it. You just need to put a bit chemicals in it. Yeah, look, there comes a time when you own a spot where you need to shift the water out. Put New Order in, you reckon? Yeah, no, definitely. Yeah. often do you reckon? They say once every six months? Really? Yeah. How long's your water been in there?
Since November last year, when I move in September, October, November, December, Jennifer? Yeah, five months. Okay. And so I needed to do it. Did I
did my mentioned the other day of the spouse sort of push you to die, I ran out of chemicals. And so it's a
bit worse for wear in there.
I mean, the lead reports that it's the it's the
slime drain now granted oh it's still warm and it's just like status is just get a bit a little bit murky doesn't look dirty just looks not clear, sure, but it's not like swamp water it's not like the Yarra River it's not like all it is is like put Astro into a glass of water what's Astro? Astro Astro clear panadol it's not panadol because that's paracetamol. Astro is different form of the thing that dissolves when you put in order. Yeah, that's kind of what's the dragon aspirin? It's not it's x pros at the actual drug. So
I think right FedEx I get to the head I quickly off you are interesting devil of one of those if you wake up with a dirty dusty headache from a few glasses of red will suit you right out, son. What's the difference between that and abraca? abraca is of kin vitamin fi 12 whatever that bullshit is.
I'm guessing because it's I love it.
Makes you yes go cloudy the my spa because of all the we've done a lot of peace and chit chat. Yeah, you brought that one I did bring up but you brought up Baraka. Yeah, no.
But anyway, yeah, so I'm out. So I have to I'm gonna work out like, can you? I mean, I shouldn't ask you any of these questions just ask.
Do you know if if I get up if I get like a pot like a hose, I sack on one end syphon
and the water will come through and then out and then create some momentum through the hose to go and this I don't know if that will work for
where fish tank. What's the difference? You're moving a lot more water. Yeah, but what's the difference? I think you'd find that your spots got a hole at the bottom is just going to undo that. It doesn't have that there is it. That's it now, now, I think that you go
Considered gravity. That's no but that's softening. How do you think people syphon fuel from petrol tanks? The, the,
the tank is at high, right? So it's like hot, you put the tube in and suck and you bring the end of the tube down lower than hip hop
out and it goes down, but you don't have the lip of a spa like you would. So the problem is
gravity's The reason it works. It pulls it in. And so as soon as it goes down, that is the momentum to draw up the other water. And so I mean, I mean, I'm just I kind of know how it works. But I was
hope I feel like a hole in the sponsor way to go just like I'm doing a drill or no, no, it's not there. I can't I haven't. There's not like a clean. It's not like Google.
Google despite what obviously you know,
if you google the spa, what
What's the brand
emptying spa? Remember what is the empty spot but you would have to do it in advance in two seconds with three you gronk typing this in three, I'm actually just watching a video of a black syphoning water from his jacuzzi. That's what I think can you send me that link? How to drain and refill a hot tub swim University YouTube? Oh, that that guy has created I think a whole bunch of YouTube vids all around Sparky so look at this guy's name's Tommy as well. Yeah, yeah, I see I see your spot. I mean, now I'm watching videos of Yeah, I haven't crossed paths. And so you would have a ideally having a home at the end. You can then you know, put a tube in it. You know the problem with that is
the problem with just pulling the plug gas essentially.
Is 1000 litres of water bro. Show that's kind of go everywhere. Where is I could pull
The hose out at your neighbour.
Well, I'll fly. I'll put it into the garden. Let it just feel it and then I'll pull it out. Sure. JVS rain, you must have a drain somewhere in the backyard somewhere. I need a pump. Anyone got a pump? It's a lot of work. I reckon maybe we might have to move. They're selling a house. This is boring. This is the suburban life coming to an end potentially. And so we might move back to the Big Smoke. You're not know this neighbourhood. This is selling a house. I know. they've reduced our rent $30 a week while they're putting us out once a week for the opening for inspections. So I heard you on the phone. And you said to me, you're like, No, No, they're not. They're paying for cleaner before every inspection.
Not that that's what they're doing. I'm telling you, that's what they're doing. And they bought on, like the call ended. That's like I hear you bringing the guy like Craig or whatever. From the real estate agent.
Hi, Craig. Yeah, we want to clean up. Yeah. Yeah, yeah, sorry. Yeah. Now we want Yeah, once. Now it would be good. I mean, we just, it'd be great to get it. Okay. Yeah.
How much? 30
Yeah, right. Yeah, we'll do that. And so you went from just like not not to just like you ended up sounding pretty pathetic. No, cuz you would you be able to pay a cleaner 30 bucks. No, this is. I like how you've summarised it is funnier than how it really happened. I think I asked for the clean I want to once awake and he said, Look, I'll put a possum. He said after every inspection. Yeah, which is once a week now.
And it was before every inspection. The biggest thing is I don't want my marriage to fall apart based on us worrying about having the house clean, or something that's got nothing to do with like fruits not your problem. Now the clean houses and you probably
Though the people that bought the house, the people who are now selling the house, we are as Yeah, the owners, they were renters of the property that we're in. That's cool and prior to buying him to get this word on the street is that they kept it really messy.
Because what happens is we're renting through another real estate agent, then Craig comes in, says, Hey, guys, we're selling the joint. It's got nothing to do with who you're renting through, you still get your lease term of a year that you've signed into, but we're selling a house and we're gonna have to do seven open for inspections, and we're going to have to do photos, and you're gonna have to be at each time. And so I thought, fucking my so annoying, like, why am I gonna get stressed out to help this sale? Like, it's, I know, it's the right thing to do. So our house is clean, and we're gonna just keep it like in the base level, and it's nice. It feels nice to live in a clean house. Anyway, yeah, we heard that the people who bought it kept it really messy before it
junction before he opened, and they reckon that's like what deterred people. And then they got it for a bit cheaper. I wonder if they know that that's what they did. So now they're overly sensitive. Well for them to for your one. So now they're like
30 bucks awake. What are you going to do with 30 bucks?
Probably some spark and backends
cleaner or No you don't. It's actually we've kept it really clean lightly. Where does it normally when you say like, now he's
the guy I spoke to the guy that you did a great, you know, impersonation of me speaking to Craig Craig's on his real name. Craig said, I want to come meet you guys love to just come over and check out the property came over like 8:30pm was he driving? Didn't see. But he won us over. Really such a lovely guy. He's like, he's a little something for you guys. It was an envelope. I was like, what's this and then he left after
We chatted to him and he's really lovely and he grew up in the air you know, like, totally smooth this in a nice way and will I got the best. I want to buy something from him his title salesman, but in the nicest possible way not sleazy or you know, any way to movie vouches to any cinema. There's like you can do events or village or anything I'm currency isn't it? $50 worth 25 bucks a ticket to these date night. Thanks to Craig can you work can you use them after 5pm pm on set? Are there no free ticket? Yeah, yeah, I think you can you can with these ones because it's just like, so what the ones that we had were free tickets to a certain movie, but there's it's that's a common thing. No free Sunday night. Yeah. But they're not free. They live in the Telstra discounter bonds. Yeah, but see, these are all so the there's no incentive to these on there. It's like if I bought George a gold class voucher, the guy wouldn't use it for
Well over you like six before you use this one of them and then you take everyone but that's just a
voucher for the pilot exactly what everyone else is it's when there's a deal like a free from the you know from the parent to
the single pass to see is that is the voucher I don't know look it up there's a there's a it makes sense because it's like you don't want to just be locked a village you want to be able to go wherever the boys go to.
palace palace cinema Cinema Nova the Dendi that's palaces but what's the other one that I like brain I go to the one in Hawthorne. Yeah. What's that called? Lido Manos good? Oh, yeah. Oh, yeah. The first up on Yeah, the it's a real hobby people of fables to go down to the movies was the last movie you saw.
The last one was so
once upon a time in Hollywood, nothing. I've seen one since then. dgg lock Jericho. Probably
Movies right? Yeah I loved it. I haven't seen the Joker by the way yet so good says can you download both legally I'll give you money
I'm sure you'll be on Netflix soon well maybe not Netflix may which is just like five bucks probably so I can rent it nine bucks maybe
just quickly before why it's the movie card potentially the movies called I don't know because there's one here that gives you access to all the different cinemas yet including IMAX Really? Yeah Stan keep sending me emails I just got one then 30 days free trial they want me back. Are they give you an I mean companies are ridiculous. Now when you call them and say I'm out there just like bro. What can we do? I'll do anything for you.
However, I should do anything. What's hellofresh doing? Oh, that just will give out free boxes and 50% off and all this right? Also, if you don't deliver it to a moment, delivered during business hours when we're not home.
Just quickly, shock Lords is on FX and Hulu March nine. The delay and today. Today I know it's localised with C sharp nose today. I'm a bit UET but that's us. I'm guessing so essentially tomorrow comes out Jeff. chocolates race Mitchell, homie he's in it yet it's me shoulders in Florida he This is him wrestling a shock
I remember speaking to me when he was over there and he's just like, Who's this robotic shock that that put together and it looks like a great series but I can't wait to watch it. Download that one to on Hulu. Well, I've been getting through the book. Tiny habits. Yeah, half hour unite.
don't know the exact number be a quarter. A quarter great. Yeah, we need to be a half way through before this
De Lille smile and you're not half under so first off I mean obviously you're not reading hard copy because that book hasn't been touched. I am writing copy copy yeah How do you know your page here? There's no bookmark there's no as a fold over page you know, you can't you just can't see the bookmarkers where's it Where's George keys if
the man is a tiny, tiny crease, my main my main point
into the I think I need to be sort of like a real Prime member of the book club and read it which will make Josh not let me beat him in reading it like, I am ready I did. I ended up with, you're not listening. I ended up getting my shit together and my power read and so that through audio, so the whole thing is 50%. But the
thing is, there were only two people in the book club that read the whole thing and they
They might hear it. And so Calum and Emma and so what we're going to do, though, the reason why we're doing the 14th is because it's halfway through the month. See heritability checkup? Yeah, exactly. And so if you're only like 10 pages in there's still hope you still have like, a whole half a month. Can you buy the book only thing and I'll I'll speed read. I'll do the whole thing. And, and they were going to join, do you say, is that just sort of distracting from what's going on with you? Oh, no, no, not at all. It's I actually I'll be a part of it to try and well, but I just feel like maybe you know, water your own gas. I can do both. I didn't know if you can because you're not meeting your own commitments. How's the adventure club? Yeah, but the adventure club has actually successfully had a event from start to finish book club in Book Club has had more more traction and more things.
going to bike ride the summer
People went to bike ride, excluding 97. And may this would be how many equivalent of me going to my own adventure club, getting halfway through the ride and then saying, Let Me Down guys, you guys continue to, you're missing you're missing the point that we throw it to the jury Dojin Dojin says it's a pretty funny analogy, but it's not true is it? Because it's so much more to a book club than reading the book.
Like what talking about it talking about the book, coaching people through the book. It's like me talking about the last half of the ride and I was at a guys that was you know,
I'm kinda I'm part of the book club. I just think that what you what are you doing with this is I'm letting you do your thing. The thing is I'm doing I think that maybe there's a bit projection going on. And so I think that what's happening though if I'm just give me my
microphone that gets to call that the bullshit. Now. Here we go. These take wrongs. Don't do it.
They thinking it
is George can call it I can't call that because I haven't done
So this is the thing. But in all seriousness, you I don't want you to enter the club, the book club, because I think that's a distraction from what you are meant to be doing, which is the adventure club. And so until you actually, because on the 14th will have a huge amount like we had, how many people did we have at the book clubs every
night? Yeah. And so there was like, outside of us, like the
screwed is like part of the show, like there was only we only had ramble.
We had one person and he's going to start working with us this month. And so, in regards to where we can put our time, I think like, I'm really happy with where the book comes.
Book Club read the fucking book. I am reading the book, I am writing the book. The question is don't hold a bike ride and not ride a bike. But I think that it's just, it's just different things but I think what are you doing? What are you doing? What are you doing for the book for the adventure? Nothing. That's why I'm not talking about it. But I'm not going to a book club. read the books.
It's like you actually pissing me off.
the thing is that like, you're not in the fucking arena. I'm in the rain. That's it. If you get it from Georgina, you're
fine, because that's exactly what he said him last.
But seriously, no, but can you relate to that like, like sideline like saying, I mean it will be better. No, you know what? I said if I mean I reckon it might inspire you to action. This is inspired me. I want the competition to be like this.
Have to find all the motivation within because there's no competition over at the adventure club life hack club doesn't even exist.
It exists more than ours because we're actually now YouTube. We're paying a subscription of a subscription for your subscription for my my club. The thing is, I recommend like the book club is by far having the biggest impact on our community. Because even if I don't read it, there are like I got so many messages people saying that was a great book. George What about cares your mom? Yeah, she she would join the next zoom call or I can Yes, I can. You think you should announce the next book earlier? Because I think that's where you can like people haven't even got this book yet. And it's already I should tell him selfie.
Your book now? Do you know the next book? Yes. Really? Really? What is it? Do you want to know?
It's called the, it's the advice trap. We're gonna
love that. Okay, order now. I'm gonna I'm gonna get in there. I'm gonna run my own side on this one.
It hasn't had much
I think they already got seven in. Okay. Yeah, seven. So it was just
and so but I have a feeling I think I was saying this to actually I think I said in my head, I was like, Man, it's gonna be great for them because I've got such a good taste in what's coming up and what's good. And so I think that if they put them on the shelves, Yeah, that'd be like, shit. People actually love the books, even outside of the book club. I think I'm a great curator. And so I think that
I'm being serious, dude. Yeah, you say, Oh, she's loved both the books.
So she's mentioned tiny habits, too. Yeah, what does she said? She said tiny habits is great.
Perfect. Okay. And so I think the thing is the thing with the the clubs in all seriousness, like bullshit aside, you're not doing enough. Okay? And so what does that look like? Like
Last month was talking about it's a lot of problems No
no, I think I think that wasn't I think that you've created a story where it's like I'm not going to talk because you didn't tell us about the quad lock Do you into which never really liked that was there was a factor and nothing really well you didn't have enough people for them to justify sponsoring around that's why I was buying the the whole bought the the
this is baby getting defensive by the way. defences thing is that he that you said that it was going to be you announced the date. And we didn't even have a bike for yourself up until like two days before. That's okay. And so what I'm saying is talking wasn't your problem. Not doing is your problem. If you talk and make promises that read that 50% of my club that's, that's better than that. I'm having more
of my own top. So 50%
Did we get through it? No, it's on my audible. What are you committing to? What are you committing to?
I think it's more
No, there's no point in no point I'm taking learnings and they'll come back strong and absolutely when but it's March on pure club that's the point we did one in fame and we will do one too much services we do once a month to watch what like you guys saying the ridiculous nature of this in all seriousness
that I mean, I Tommy's have higher impact in the moment. And so it's I guess, each one a month is Martin always on.
If it's only financially I was, I'm having impact. It's
not even about the
Easter time thing. I'm not even I'm just the sense he's not looking for an answer. He's looking at what he said.
you didn't finish off the rest of
on your phone the whole time I had to bring up about the fact the
phone because because everyone was looking when you were on your phone during the book I was saying fucking six faces just being like, they really just like midway and you're having a conversation with ramble. And when I pointed out when I say looking at it's on a grid, you could say by the like their faces like, are we really talking about not listening and about phone use and all this stuff? And you and ramble on your phones talking, you would mute yourself thinking that we couldn't see you and you're talking. And then when I brought it up, everyone laughed, because that was reality. And so if we're going to talk about you're not listening, we need to live again. I just would like to say I think like let's ignore the fact that the book club exists. If we would just bet if we were like we only had one club. It was an adventure club. I think that we would be
disappointed as a shy
Wait a fun talent. You gotta start somewhere. You gotta
build it, but you're protecting your position no matter what. So what when I said, I said the time is gonna turn out hectic by the end of the month is gonna be heaps going on. Why don't you just put in some dates? I haven't because I I'm not gonna do that today. And so when does that when do we see you in action with that? Yeah this week as I said this weekend so that's all you get. Is it Wednesday? Can I at least have a day or not? What What day so by the by Friday this week, you'll tell us what the next adventure is by Sunday because that's the end of the week.
confirmation on that that's that's the end of this week and all well I just I just so by then. Okay, you're ready talking about confirmation that it's the end of the week literally finish off the week, and I can have it out by then. Can I get my next question that I think any of the way I get annoyed by my winching but I'll just say
But he's in the Wait, can I get it? Yes, it is. It's fine. But the thing is you're just distracting. What's not a snippet. Like you're just distracted from the fact you haven't done anything yet. And the 15th is halfway through the month and for you to wait till the 15th of before you even start talking about anything. people already know the book, people are getting the book, people are starting the first thing you've done your first year.
And so I just think that like, I'm just empathising for people who are wanting adventures and they're just like, this guy is just taking the piss
going clubbing is that one of the benches? It could be George. Okay, would you be there? Yeah, definitely.
Love it. So now this whole show, you can become a VIP gronk Yeah. What What are you laughing at?
What? Just wrap it up become though. Had enough. Yeah. The Daily talk show.com forward slash broncs. You can sign up for
There, if you do it by the Third Bank that see I think dates are so important.
Happy Harry texted me. After when you're bagging up meetings like, meetings it bullshit. What? I didn't beg at meeting Serbs. Did he bang out meetings. I said, Where's the zoom episode? Nice. Zoom. I said meetings and what happens is a reoccurring meeting and a business can get stale, and people just there's no purpose to it. Other than a to do list, it's not baguette meeting. And so the thing is that happy Harry was like he gave some pointers, you got to come up with three out of three theatre
theatre group, you got to come up with three actions and then the next meeting they need to be checked.
But yeah, I just think like we should promote dates and times to make things happen. So the 13th of March is the cutoff.
