Yeah. With Paris Humphrey
Paris home free. Open strong with earwax chat if you've already been why I only just because it's just come out and I'm in the car. It's like let's paint the picture this morning. Very icy morning in Melbourne. You walked in to the office nice ball. Yeah, it
was nice. So it's a 23 I am one of the things about doing the show. Changing few things up is trying to do it earlier
in the day. How do you feel about what's your state like in the morning because you know, some people are like, oh man, I'm useless morning. Or they just spring out of bed like a jack in the box.
I'm probably in between. So I was very annoyed by my dirty glasses. Yeah glasses. And so when I came into the office, we had to find something that could claim the glasses. If you are a glasses wearer, you know the situation. Yeah, you want something that's going to clean it. You have a gronk mate who says may just use the fucking baggy t shirt, or toilet paper just to grab that or this. I offered you for things. And I'm like, Fuck, it must be specific. Yeah, you might as well not ask anyone that's not doesn't wear glasses. Well, you know, I don't know that when I send us an email. Hi, the daily talk show calm. Also shout out to Charlotte, in France who sent us a lovely email. Thank you shout Oh, no. Nice. Yes. If you if you wear glasses, how do you claim them? The thing that the rules that I have these don't use tissue, like an aloe vera sort of tissue, because they've all got a film film on them. What is it like a like an oily? Yeah. And so you could build that up. So what I did, the compromise was that I got the glasses, very hot with some Water I hear and then I use some toilet paper is that
like damage control?
I didn't I just I don't know what it does but it feels like maybe it builds up some sort of steam did it shit yeah that's working really well yeah good good and so yeah in the morning I'm okay I'm actually I'm excited that this is the start of our day
so when we when we first started this podcast we got how many episodes in 8090 and then you went overseas and then we were doing rotation of because we kept it going 110 hundred and 10 110 in and I remember being up at 5am recording in my car freezing had to turn the heater on but then the heater cause issues with the sound and so it was it was freezing because you're in a different sama
yeah and different issues. Yeah internet in on great. Yeah, yeah, fuck it. So How you feeling?
Oh, I mean you. You don't realise the privilege you have Until it's taken away from me. And one of those privileges for me is a driving garage that you just hit the hit the button goes up, you drive in G goes down, you there's a door that takes you into your house. So you never having to you know, face the elements of getting out of your car walking to your house, but what's changed because COVID is not affecting that is now my fucking garage door is broken. Went out the other day I pressed it went down, drove off, and then we got back and I'm pressing the button and it's just like you see just like this pathetic attempt. And it's, you can see the bottom of the door move up slightly. Nothing and I'm like, Fuck this. I'm going to get out. I'm going to go in and have a look. And then I saw my sister in law and she said, I heard a big bang when you guys left before and I walked in, I'm looking and I tried to do the old pull the cord which gives you like manual access to the second cords
email. time so I get down at the office,
you face you bang it, you bang your head on it, it's fucking, it's
nice for you using it. So what does the manual thing do? Does
it look down it releases the, the the automatic setting, it's just like takes it out off the gear. And then you can use that sort of read. It's almost looks like you know, like an old school corkscrew where you'd put the thing in your hand and the clock would cut the screw would come through your fingers, and then you'd screw Anyway, you use it and yank it and you pull back in the door slides open. So you're gonna use manual force to pull the door back open, wouldn't open and like this is even on a manual setting. Yeah. And then I looked up and there's two coils that are attached to this bar that they basically if it's if if one of them snapped like it did. It's it's not getting traction to be able to pull and rotate the bar to be able to let it slide up. Anyway, this thing had completely He snapped.
Well, I know that the garage was a big deal when you moved in because the whole thing was you liked that. You could go into the garage, close the garage and then Bodi could get out safely.
It's so safe for a kid it's and we like we came from two bedrooms, tiny two bedroom apartment in St Kilda in a city where you had to Yeah, we hadn't like under the apartment. It was open though. So we had coins stolen from the car. There was a junkie that was injecting lying back onto our car one point. Anyway, all that shit. It was hard for a kid I dropped Bodie once. neglect but me it does tie. No but in so this has
been how does it get orange help with that? Well,
it's just ease you know? Okay, he's the difference. Right now we're having to park on an incline that leads up into our garage. That's slippery. That's annoying. And
is this the spot so at bowties birthday party. It was it was quite hectic, third birthday was Second thought
it was he sued both entities last party
so it was slippery it was right you organise the jumping castle it was in the back the jumping castle just when you think about a jumping castle you imagine this like you know sprawling sort of backyard like it just it felt like it was the house was built around this jumping castle that was at the time it was on the deck and but when people were leaving yeah the slippery surface that little hill that people go down to leave your joint.
Yeah, everyone was falling over Yeah, we had multiple people one smash their head one guy had Eddie's daughter in his arm. satin lovely dude big tall man like six six just this big beast just slipped slipped back we had to end up putting fucking to house down so but and be like, Guys, please. Turns out the last owner of our property, they friend has tried to sue body corporate because they usually die over
So obviously, which seems pretty rare in Australia, don't you think to like just sort of, say job?
Yeah, it didn't go through I don't think they even got close but it's it obviously just points out that it is an issue and the annoyance having a child and parking because we don't want to park the streets kind of sit back a little bit from our joint. But I mean, this is just what everyone faces and the point pointing out the privilege it's very fucking privileged to have a driving garage when it's your car doesn't drop would
you say is it boogy?
Not an old it's amazing shit, but it's but at least we have like a we have a vacuum cleaner. Remember the old school so it's probably a 20 year old townhouse. Yeah,
those old built in what's called a ducted vacuum ducted vacuum
and they were all throughout the house. There's something about so there's one of those systems in the garage, which means that you can just plug it in and vacuum the car.
So is that in vain? stalling that in modern houses?
I haven't said I feel like they weren't good
things that I feel like at my parents place like their old place yeah where I used to live I feel like there was the they had that but they also had the the calm that where you had to leave the windows back which we've spoken about
a lot on the show. It's one of those things if you if you have no other option but evaporative then yeah, sure. But we so you need to it's weird this it's like when I had my BMW
privilege actually just had a red leather say BMW that you bought on a with a loan. I when you were a stripper? Yeah, isn't it I had a Dave a day. plaid strain has
it set a TV so when I stopped at lights, I could watch the Simpsons on the way home right so
so was you're actually getting free to air TV. Yeah, it was a signal. I wonder if that signal would still have an antenna on I guess it's a small one.
It was a three to eight ci BMW. Okay. I mean, it was quite futuristic at the time. Yeah. Now it's actually I sold it. And I saw it later on by, you know, probably a year or two later, but now this dude was from the suburbs. Anyway, in that I press this button like after probably having the car for over six months. And I just and I look back and these blinds have come up out of the
blinds. It was a blonde
that went across the back window.
It was bizarre and I was like,
fuck that happened and press the button and get busy. And so I was discovering something that I had no idea about even when buying the car.
This it's so funny that you mentioned this. This is just reminded me of a guy that so when I was working at fief angels, a radio show in Australia in 2013. We did something called Suzuki CAS wha That's right. And so the idea was that you were you would submit your card You'd fill out the form you'd say where you worked, where you lived. And we would surprise one person where we would tow their car, take away their car, hide it, and replace it with a brand new Suzuki Swift. Was there a condition that the car had to be sort of shitty? Yeah, it was. The idea was it was a ship car. You picked up a BMW where the fast my Beemer and what's this shit swift? No, so I am. I remember in Queensland, we flew to Queensland to do it for someone who worked at a flight centre. Yeah. And because it's all very, you know, you need to be secretive. And once I think I only just remember there was this guy, who was our driver, who had we were in a, like a $400,000. car. It was like a security car and had all the blinds and it was like fucking, he would say it was like that windows were all bulletproof. And we were basically Fei Fei just demanded that. I but it was, it was fun. thing where it's just like looking back we really over baked that whole thing didn't require that but he loved he loved it.
I was telling you about me as soon as I found out about that blonde I would show everyone who got in but so the so having the the ducted vacuum I we got Bodie, the new bed on the weekend and and I took up stairs the it's a bit annoying you get a lug around this big fucking pipe and the good thing is that doesn't have a big thing on the end you just plug it into the wall but I got upstairs and I was thinking okay, I'll plug this into the wall guard downstairs. I'll flick it flick the switch on in the garage.
No, you had to do I feel like it was automatic way you would I no
idea was automatic. I put it in. I put it in and and all of a sudden I'm yelling
who's gender can be a fucking fraud. I may be turned on. No,
no. Is it because when you open the latch, maybe it's
no latch doesn't start. Open the latch. Attach it. There's a minute So what this is what I think it is a metal ring around where it inserts. I think it's creating some kind of circuit. So it activates the thing downstairs seems like well the only reason I say that is because if you open it, it doesn't start going.
Yeah, it's true. You open it,
nothing. Insert plastic bit with metal rings done.
And so was it effective. It's actually so good. It's
also all about psychotronics. Now I said cyclonic said the future. This thing is a weapon
better than a Dyson. Well,
so Dyson very, very easy going, you know, it's like the laid back guy that does a good job. Whereas the productive vacuum, bit of an RFP bit picky bit complicated but does really get tangled. There was a couple of times I'm yanking it because it's so long.
I feel like I remember being like Why am I not getting a suction? You realise that fucking 10 metres down there's a kink it's like a garden hose because you've got so much length. It just is gonna get tangled at some point.
Anyway, that is the privilege that I've realised is being able to just take your smoothies your your food load up a car with a kid take your bags when you're only having to step from your lounge room into your garage is I'd pay 100 bucks extra a week rent just to fucking have that is so nice for having when you have a family even not just it's just convenient Do you think that having a garage though you're more likely to store shit we're actually other than you still rubbish so like we've partly landfill like bodies' all caught. We've I've like dis i mean i dismantled it, and have rested it up against the wall all the all the rubbish all the like cardboard from buddy's new bed. in there, it's just so you there is a trap that we're pretty we came from what was once a one bedroom apartment converted into a two bedroom two, a three bedroom, two level townhouse. So we actually don't have a great dealership now. It's very lucky.
I was I was watching the news about everything that's happening in Victoria. They haven't ruled out. stage four, it's on the table. Yeah. Couldn't be more likely. He's on the table. But the so the, the confusing bit, I find is, I want to know what the rest of the world is doing. I feel like at the start of the pandemic, I could look at sort of the national level and you'd say, Okay, this is what Trump is saying the US is doing and all that sort of thing. You know, Governor Cuomo in New York, but I don't get a sense. Like, do you know No, like is the Los Angeles
like what's happening? Going back? So this morning it's all about la going back into lockdown.
Yeah, so I saw California is doing like they're picking all of these different, like Orange County yeah exactly all these different municipalities Yeah. But then saying okay, you can't do this that is fucking as confusing as it is here. But I would like to
So you said it that we don't really hear much from premiers but they're not in the, in the limelight usually. Yeah, they're they're doing their job. But you've never like it's the Coronavirus has made it so clear that this it's a state we live in a country, Australia, state by state so different. They like running their own show and the US is the same Florida just a different kettle of fish compared to California. Yeah. Versus Texas. North Carolina. That's what you brother. Yeah. It sounds like Spock. I really yeah, they're in trouble. By time enough to shoot, but so what are you thinking? It's well, I just would like to be
across all of these things because I think that in the early days of it all, I was reading all of the stuff that was happening in the US and in Europe. Yeah. And then formulating our This is what I recommend end up happening here. I don't necessarily like I think it's still happening. I think about the US like the change on masks. Yeah. And that now, in Victoria, that's like a thing that's starting to happen more. Yeah, I am actually asked Steph. Steph clay Smith has a very nice black mask. Have you seen that? No. So she's got like a very about well, this is the thing I said. Because Bray, Brees dad is a safety guy. He works in the safety industry. And so he got us some masks because that's the sort of stuff that he sells. And I said as a single use, which really a lot of mass cussing. Yeah There's people out there that have been rocking Mark six weeks in their single use as in your where
you're only meant like for I think they still get a day most effective. Yeah, use case is a session these like
the 95 the 95 Yeah, but this is a thing I said to bring on like, yeah, whenever you get any sort of favour from a family member, it's always never completely right like so for instance, I was like, You know what, I reckon I bet you they're pretty dorky like you know, when you like someone's doing you fight with like, then they're not going to be the real cool looking one. Yeah. And I was asking George actually didn't even ask George I was like, man, I would. I like the idea of having a really cool sort of modern black one. Yeah. I said like, Steph clay Smith, he said all that added us. GEORGE You, he said and they're out of black then we have Navy.
probably sell that out. Yeah,
JP is all across it But no, I am. I haven't started using the mask masks yet because I haven't really been close proximity. It's not like I'm not on public transport and all that sort of thing. Yeah, I feel like I'm a claustrophobic
Yeah. And so I definitely when I was at the fibre guide in the media department wasn't firing. I did wear a bunch of those masks over the course of my short one year career
because of smoke like you're in. I mean, that makes a lot of sense. The difference is when it's not for smoking, it's not for dust or something like that. I've worn one I made one out of a T shirt, double layer. It feels like you're It feels like you're so you put it on before you leave the house or whatever it feels like you're scrapping into a new reality right? Where you like. You see is it just like you just saying stuff and you feel very it makes you feel very in wedlock? Yeah. Which is the
bit of a bad like, I feel like I could be more likely to be in a fight.
Do you reckon? Well, the thing you don't know? Who's Who could people could be naughty? Like I saw a bunch of homeless dudes last night. Like, very surprised this is pushing out of city suburbs into sort of like queue where I wouldn't normally think there's homeless people and it's really sad. I mean, both of them up and goes and stuff, but they had masks on. And obviously he's just trying to stay healthy, you know, in hard times. And I was like, you don't know. You don't know. The thing about masks are they take away people's identity? to it? there's a there's a there's a sense where in the in the past if you saw someone wearing a mask and has in like a bandana, you think factor you know, this could be someone going to like, you know, the the picture of someone doing something naughty is a bandana going into a shop? Yeah. Whereas now that's normal, right? Yeah, but it's still sort of a mindfuck because you like everyone When you remove people's identity, like the facial being able to see someone's whole face, it's there's something comforting about seeing someone's whole face because you like, oh god, I can see that person. Whereas now when you remove things you like it, like, think about how scary
it's like wearing a bandana like
a balaclava only eye holes only mouth hole that immediately makes you like, who's doing that?
No, I bought the
doing that. Have you ever seen someone walking out on a cold day with a full belly? That's a robot. Seriously, a nice sounding thing, isn't it? Funny Southern Hill, which is a gold rush, sort of. So it's in Ballarat, how do you describe it?
It's already nice Gold Rush town. And it was one of the booming Gold Rush towns in Victoria and they've preserved this area that has a mind and it's like a step back in time experience. They've got all you know
but they they've got the best thing about it is a lolly shop. They have the raspberry drops, boy Yeah Dad would always get me to get one of those tins with the lemon ones or whatever and is it lemon?
Yellow? I've done a lot of Yes,
yeah, definitely father's day it was a big thing you'd get them but they gift shop was outrageous. They had a balaclava is for sale, balaclavas and handcuffs because that's where I got the handcuffs right handcuffs. Yeah it like cuz we went there for school camp we actually stayed there Wait at sovereign Hill really and then you go to you go to the school and I got really into sort of calligraphy for a while I got the the blue ink, the sort of the pin thing that you use. Did you see the gold being the gold bar bang milk And also the candy like the hard lollies getting stretched and they've had up and so they take real quick
Yeah, yeah. So anyway the stage for I don't actually know what it means if you're going by New Zealand stage for which we've been very similar they just went to stage four instead of going three jumped, which is we've never been stage four never been stage four which is a complete lockdown which lock which basically removes you it's like 1000 metres proximity of your house that's as far as you can go. And no businesses are working other than obviously supermarkets and hospitals. I don't know what it means for daycare aged care like aged care, obviously but daycare school it's I think it's literally Aaron if I can stay at home for four weeks. Yeah,
that is because Bray brought up that we made some nice is it chilli con con or chilli con carne. It's actually Konkani okay. Yeah, sure. Anyway had some chilli company and, like library made a big batch on Sunday we've been eating it, it's good. And Bree said a she texted me. I got home before when she said Uber Eats probably won't make it for stage four you won't be able to get over I locked it down in New Zealand. So what I said I was like, surely that means I don't have to have the chilli Konkani and I can just get some overwrites, but I didn't. I had chilli Konkani and I had some extra sour cream and Deepak best purchase seriously what? It's a hand grater for cheese. What do you mean? Imagine you go to a restaurant or whatever and they're like, got the parmesan or whatever. Yeah, and I just saw a handle and it's Jenga. It's good to see you tonight. No, no, no, no, no. Ah, yeah, so that's probably
better grading board for apartments and greater. They're pretty standard, but it's gonna handle it. You hold it, right? Yeah, we got one Thomas and Greg the fact and Greg.
It's not just a parmesan like it on a what else he graded on that? Just you cheddar?
Oh no, that's my poem isn't graded that you're using you. You're getting big chunks of Parmesan.
No, no, no, it's um, it's very small. It reminds me of you know, like, you go to a Mexican restaurant and it's almost like that white cheese. It's like, real fluffy, fluffy like it's
in cheddar on that. Yeah. This must be a hard cheddar though.
Yes, it is. Okay, that's all chit chat is pretty hot. Yeah. So then, what's the soft cheddar?
I don't know. But I'm just like,
it's less out of the fridge. And there was no soft cheddar. Butter.
Now I'm thinking of like a cone cheese like a you know this the softer like the just tasty cheese Tasty cheese is a hard cheese. You're not grading tasty cheese
on a parmesan grater absolutely we're not talking about the same thing we get to the visitors. Yes I mind I think that yours is big. So big chunks
now mine's fluffy i get i get that fluffy I get that cloud check that in cloud palm isn't I took a photo
let me know so I didn't take a photo of the actual
I just took a photo of the food but not the
Yeah, this is what I had last night. Look at the chase.
Yeah, okay, they're bigger chunks than my one mine goes a lot fluffier than that which I reckon mines so you're that that chunk that you're probably to two gauges up from mine in terms of thickness. Yeah, bang goes literally like
Yeah, well, it's awesome though because I am. You cheese goes a lot further. Because I normally Like, I'll just eat like a big square of cheese like no problem. Yeah.
And I get some Veneto club. Blaine. Yes. I've got they're doing their takeaway options, and you can get fresh Parmesan. Just a big block of it. Yeah, I'm so good. You should get
Oh, actually, I feel like I could do a bit of Doomsday prepper
in Yeah. Well, I mean, that's what I think people look at like my brother yesterday night, I reckon. locked down the stage for probably Friday. What do you mean, I've been speaking to a couple who are got you know, what used to work with him someone from bubble up.
Okay. It's one of
these happened. The thing is, this happened before we went to stage three, and everyone's like, no, we're locking down Wednesday, we're locking down Friday, we're locking down Monday, and it always happened, but it did happen in the end. And so, but then there was also cases where like, a couple of years ago when we heard the same story of a terrorist attack happening in a shopping centre. Yeah.
And it was all bullshit. Well, it was a made up story that
makes But I feel like we're in a different
light also because it takes a while to get like you think about it. You have to let all these different services know. So you tell all these people and then those people will tell their family like, quick.
I think more like bank humans just love having any like my other side say that I told you about. You know, I've got a friend that works at Channel Nine. And I know the big brother winner.
I told you the story of someone who was told the winner of one of those reality shows? Yeah, they then. So they heard from someone they secretly did a very big bid on sports bet. Huge obnoxious bid. Yeah. The person was bullshitting them and they lost all their money. It's a it's a lesson isn't it? The second lose the friendship. Now, but I think that the the person who did it the person who put the bed On Yeah, they would have been real pissed off because they also told their parents and so their parents got in on it too. So there was like many, so it's the family's
but ya know, stage four will be interesting. It will mean that we will all go back to our homes. Yeah,
yeah the show continues. We're not stopping the show.
But where are you? Are you in lockdown right now? Yeah, send us an email. Hi at the daily talk show calm Florida
has been called the new whoo Han. I really? Yeah.
By who? The newspaper. Okay, Glenn, tell us how are you? How's hope everyone's doing? Well, hope you're all right. I know. It's different everywhere. But yeah, let us know.
