Welcome gronk we got a full team here for a weekend banter.
Paige shepherd. danza my bottom left. Gemma watts bought a middle and scooter Derrick bottom right
guy guy screwed up You look like you're at draculas what's what's the deal with your lighting?
Yeah, I've got
I've got a I mean my little engineer pot. This is not meant to be a set but I just shown an Ikea lamp on the curtains from the side and then I remembered that had one of those colour adjust as you can do from your phone, and I got carried away. Yeah, I made it purple 60 purple.
I feel like you're in a bind. Because you like to go to a sound shop. And you've you've got money to spend How responsible I like how do you know when what you're going to buy? Because you said you're going to buy a $5 item and a sound shop and you walked away with $2,000 worth of gear. Two days
All right, to be clear, it wasn't my money and it's not good. Right most mostly right so so I did go in to get a cable. And yet Yeah, got lost my mind a bit. injuries, the percent the danger is the percentage because you take you go, alright, I've got to go and get to Jays with a gift for a client, that's fine. But what you do is you get 1500 bucks with a gift for the client, which is fair enough. And then you go, Well, that's only a pittance to go and grab this extra two $300 thing.
Yeah, it's really just a question of it. Like drug dealers don't say the money they making is real money. They're like this could be taken Anytime I don't really dodgy money, I might as well blow it. It's Yeah, it's gonna happen. How's How's everyone going? In a hour? So I mean, everyone's looking amazing. A million bucks. If you if you've never watched this show, make sure you go and watch this episode on YouTube. Because we're all at our own houses and looking. I mean,
I'm feeling sloppy, Jim, you're dancing? Are you dancing every single day?
three times a week back to when I did for 18 years. Obviously not the same, but it's the same quantity. You will
know Scott Morrison calls it by Ray, how
do you actually so that's different. That's different to the dancing. So ba Yeah, silent. A bar is like a form of polarities, but it's like the principles of ballet. So I'm doing that as well. I'm really enjoying it. It's just nice to be using those like ballet muscles again. And so with the dance and everything
With the dancing side of things, like how much room because I've thought about it, but I just don't have like I can barely do a tick tock, how much space to actually do it?
Because the way I don't have a tonne of room I love it the way that Gabby teaches is that like, there's no travelling steps, which will mean something to some people and nothing to others but because we're the bulk of people don't have a tonne of space. And if you're like sharing your apartment with other people, you'll be mentioned to your bedroom.
And, Pat, have you been doing the two step?
He's always joining
me, Josh. Josh, maybe you should join one of these classes. It sounds kind of funny.
Yeah, I just don't want to derail I just the concern I have with it is that it would become a bit of a joke and no one would take it seriously. So yeah, my thoughts.
You're on mute and no one can see you because you can the teachers video and you're off to the side. Okay,
so it's not like a grid. We're not sort of it's not gonna feel like I'm dancing in a group.
No, no, you just pin the teacher. Okay.
Bunch of highlights this week, Episode 100, obviously, but also launching too much Telly, Telly smarts podcast, in that she was talking about ballet. She says she has horrendous fate. You said you did ballet for many years. Jim, are you? Are you saying your feet horrendous or is is that just
my quiet? No, I've got very I'm just looking at them. Now. I've got very very high arches though. I went to what's it called the athlete's foot to get new runners and did their thing that you guys are obviously very familiar with.
That doesn't surprise me. Hey, it would be second only to the bleaching I can imagine. And he essentially burst out laughing when he saw the height of my arches. I think I Oh okay. So this is the equivalent of like, you The almost negative comment your flat footed you can be, well, you can be too arched. Is that what you're saying?
Well, it's not even that it's actually a blessing for ballet because it means you can point and it's very difficult to explain. But if I were to sit on the ground and put my feet out in front of me and then point as hard as I can point, my hollow, you can scratch me so you can you can scratch your heel with your toe. Is that what you're saying?
And so yourself. I was trying to get a, I was trying to get you to give yourself a bit criticism. It's hard to come by from Jabberwocky. And that's what I love about you.
I don't think anyone's got nice face. I think that I sincerely believe the leg should end at the ankle.
Pretty unhelpful, very annoying that, you know, down there unless you had a prosthetic
you might believe would survive. I think that's the way humans should banner from day one, but
yeah, especially I saw you
fill out. A big pate has your feet, man, what do you What's your take on your feet at 10?
Actually right now they're a little soul. I got myself a shiny new standing desk. And it's been awesome. But what I'm recognising is my feet just aching all the time, because I'm standing here that
have told me that standing the standing desk I couldn't believe so what you described to me versus the photo. It is like am. Yeah. So can you describe what the standing desk is like?
Yeah, so it's made out of wood. And it's kind of like, I guess like a pyramid structure. what looks like a pyramid structure from doing a terrible job. And then yeah, and then you sort of insert shells into these grooves and you can insert the shells at different heights and so you can put it low. If you want to sit you can put it high if you're a total freak and you want to stand like me.
Yeah, it's like, it's awesome. This is
no, this is Fox wardrobes. They're called so independent GYN in Sydney made to order and I just I think I found them through key furniture But anyway, free closet. They awesome.
I actually did. I saw this on Instagram. I did see like pates posts on Instagram. It was great. I was I was looking at them scrolling through their website. I was like, man, I could I could definitely have one lays
that out for a while. Yeah. Love it.
Just one time.
I think it's good to hear. Yeah.
Tell me more
story coming. It was it was building up.
I once bought, do you know what a tank a desk is? No. All right. Okay, so it's a mid century solid steel desk like you can't lift it like four big blokes struggle to carry one. Right? So you'll see one in if you look out If you look up the website for Alcatraz, right? And you look at the pictures of Alcatraz, you'll see one in the office there too. It's a really solid metal desk anyway, and I thought, I need to have a standing desk because I keep sitting down and then losing myself during the birth of social media and, and all that sort of stuff. So I thought, right, I need to be able to just go to the desk and check in invoice or whatever, and then walk away again. So instead of sitting down, so I, I tell you what, getting this thing, I turned into a standing desk, I had to build up these huge wooden block things and then try and get like five people to lift it up, put it on there. And how long did it within a month, within a month I'd found a stool. There was
I screwed up when I first came into your warehouse. It was a mechanic's workshop or a scooter repair shop. Hence the night you had this huge piece of metal It was like a sheet of metal that would have been hundred relies on more. Tell us a story about where you got that from. And because there is something I remember you telling me I was I was blown away.
Well, it was it was, it was a crime. So it's very difficult to just admit it.
This, this, these parts can be cut out, I
know that they put these
in, you need to get to the end before you judge right. But a lot of
us steel plates over if our digging a big hole in the road. They put a huge steel plate over the road over the hole so cars could dry it was so heavy and so intense, about 20 millimetres thick that cars couldn't move so traffic could go over. So they did they dug a great big hole out outside here and up the road a bit and left one of these out there. And so we thought that Ben make a nice bench And we It was after they'd filled the hole in Okay, it was just waiting for someone to pick it up. So I, I thought it was an old one and they'd, you know, they probably didn't want it anymore. So I've hooked it onto a chain and we drove it down the road behind the ute, and then I had to instal a pulley and bolted in to get it up the ramp into my workshop. And then we we put a pulley over the beams and we tipped it up, welded legs on it, used it for years as a as a workbench. But on the on the Monday after that, this bloke walked into the flue rows and he goes get a and he was following these huge gouge marks in the road that came all the way turned around, went up my driveway and up to this bench, and I said Oh good, I might dig up a slab. Because Yeah, and I said here it is gave me slab and he went The way that
you guys misled would be
like I missed a beat and it was just automatic that know that that's what he came to pick up.
You I gotta say I screwed up pays for most things with a slab of be like there's more bidding sharking going paid. Have you ever paid for something with a slab of beer?
I think so probably like back in the day when we're at uni and someone used to drive someone was the designated driver. Instead of giving them petrol money you might just say we'll just buy you some beers when we get to the to the potty or when we go out next week and eat that's my lab of Gee, that's not like the gym.
type of this family pays in slabs or parties being grown here, which hasn't been the case in quite some time sadly. But if you're like borrowing glasses or lightning So tables or something and people are helping you set up it's given us that
it's a valid currency, valid currency.
It's just an old currency. To be honest, that's when it really shines. It's like you can't trust the fact that that guy chose morally to ignore a crime. And you know, he put in, he's paid for what what are the slab costs here? 35 bucks. 40 bucks back then skirts. I mean, it was a great deal for you, man. It was a great deal. great deal.
I feel ashamed. And I tried to get I tried to give it back. But they change their system. Now they use they use plastic things now and they said, No, thanks.
So do you still have a book?
Do you still haven't screwed the book or?
what's been it's been a curse because since we stopped using it on I 20 years ago, and it's it's It's just been stuck here because you can't move it is part of
why you'd want to take it away. Really?
Yeah, it would have been. I didn't want it. They'd rather use these plastic things that they bolt down now they don't want the workman breaking themselves.
So I love jam outside of dancing. What's been your favourite ISO activity?
Well, I feel like I feel like at the start of lockdown, I had all of these grand plans, all the things I was going to do and I did them. I like I'm very good at making pasta from scratch. Now, I was already good at but I'm better at cocktails. I've become very good at painting, which is so fun. That's been fun. But I feel like I haven't done anything productive the last probably the last six weeks because I've just been working, which is fine and certainly nothing to complain about. But I just haven't done any of the fun thing. What are
you painting? What sort of things
Just like on canvases and just been trying to teach myself how to paint
like people like
it's a bit like I will just find shapes that I think will cool and then just do give it a crack but it's also an abstract some of its like humans but it's not realistic in the slightest when you think Have you ever done an I like the
nude painting class where you're painting a subject?
I hinze Patty is actually at least maybe this is a skirt of de quality story. It's not really I regret saying that immediately. It's another story. We had a friend's hands not and the the bridesmaids had organised a like a topless wave. So but he was meant to wear an apron with with the bomb showing. Tell me what do you mean like
meant to wear? Do you actually pick that before the night?
Yes, I've never booked a stripper but I understand that that's part of the process. If I was going to
show that package package a
package B package, say your package has many.
So the, the package name, it would be, have these little tushy out and then there was going to be live drawing afterwards. This guy rocks up and he's having a really weird sort of hush hush conversation with the bridesmaid who's who have booked in, and then he comes back out and he's not really doing, like waiting on anyone. He's just waiting for someone to be like, oh, could I please have another drink? Like he's meant to be going around the table, and he's wearing jeans. And he's got, like, paint on you. And then I sent you one of the bridesmaids. I was like, what's what's going on? Because I just looked stressed and they were like, basically, this isn't the guy that we booked as a lot of strippers are also tradies this guy was just on a worksite with the guy that we did bog, he was double booked. So he asked one of these other random blokes on the worksite Hey, can you go and do this job for me? It's just topless waiting. So this bloke was not comfortable taking his pants off, which is absolutely fine. But when it came to time for the life story, and he did it in his jaw, paint and scratches and stuff all over his legs. So for that I just drew a very realistic drawing on the chair that you're sitting on.
And I did not win. That's not competition.
It's the idea of booking someone in and then getting something different. Reminds me of my mate nice on when he got married in Italy. He'd booked a DJ. And when the DJ arrived, what the DJ said was, are you've paid for the equipment, but if you want me to actually DJ, that's going to be extra
I'm sorry quibble interviewed paid
someone not wearing pants. Exactly.
So anyway, I sound like I think that the Italian thought that nice sound was going to be like off like I have to pay it but instead, he just got his iPod and plugged it in. And he was DJ he's on wedding basically.
Geez, Josh, you've been? You've been to Vegas because you will travel but who else has been to Vegas? Anyone else? Anyone else paid into Vegas? No, scooter Vegas. No. Crap. Jim, Jim, I've been to Vegas. Or you would love Vegas. It's just you know, it's all show. Really not saying that's. That's negative. But you know, I love your arches of your feet. They're great. But in Vegas on the ground, there's cards and people are flicking them. They're walking around saying, hey, go out here. They can the advertising the strip clubs, they can advertising, prostitutes that can come to your hotel room. I know a guy that found one of these cards and thought, she looks nice, cold it, booked her in, came to his hotel room, knock on the door. And he opened it. And sure enough, it was not the person on the card. It was the Zed team. And that's coming from the guy that got called the B team. As the strippers someone said, This journalist once said, Oh, you guys must be the beta. Where's the a team? Because we were such
she had only speaking to journalists as a stripper.
Oh, small town. You know, it's like you working for the fire brigade. If you're a fiery you, you'd understand. But yeah, and so and then he closed the door and said No, thank you. And two seconds later, a huge security guard came up to the door and he had to pay So we paid $80 for this guy to not beat him up. Never, never call. It's
not ideal. I feel like yeah, it's interesting. Some people say like when they travel, that they would do things that they wouldn't normally do. So for instance, some people that would only go to strip clubs, when they're travelling. I just, I just feel like I don't know. I don't know how I feel about that. I mean, I'm the guy who wrote an elephant in Thailand, which I do regret. But we never did the the ping pong shows or whatever seemed too much. Jim, you've been to Thailand. Have you been to a ping pong show?
No, I haven't. But I do. When we were in Amsterdam. We were walking up and down. Like with red light. The girls are in Yeah, the red light district. That's the one. And I just had the best time watching these groups of guys that we're on like a boy's weekend. And there'd be one in every group. They're like, Oh, do you dare me to go in
Yeah What cough What are you talking about?
Yes, something just
got caught in my throat. So in Melbourne right now there is the mandatory masks paid what's what's your mask look like?
I've got a few few options. I've got a smart Navy number. That's my go to, but a few of the disposes a smarter doesn't look smart. It doesn't like track you
steps or something. No, no, it's
like a smart monitor.
Yeah, it tracks your respiratory right now. It
has a built in
a nice blue number. And then I just got a message from trace. Apparently her mom has just sewn assemble and set them down. So I've got a few pack a few patent patent kind of situations I think ready but I'm having trouble Josh could appreciate this I'm having a lot of trouble with the flogging of the classes.
I have no idea how to tell us about contracting currently you name that a lot quite fitted down on the cheek
doesn't happen and so Jim
you just love a lot just pacing because getting these exercises
into the postman.
Any opportunities tips every interaction,
the your mask? It's gonna love a lot of love online. Apparently you don't know where you got it from.
No man got als back in March because she's a medical admin so as soon as they will whispers of the need for masks. She just went to town not when it's very hard, but
that would be dangerous. sustain yourself He would be married. And she's
bored. She's made masking like a fun pattern also because she had a bag of cloth people aren't taking donations at the moment if you're throwing your clothes out because they don't know who's touched it, which makes perfect sense. So mums got all of these dresses in like fun prints that she was getting rid of. So she's just made them into Mars.
Oh, that's good. Gemma
there was a comment on that post. I don't know the backstory. You might not want to go into it. But you said you blocked somebody. They've been commenting
Yeah. Yeah, I am. I think the comments gone now I think that once you block someone you can still say the replies but they're out of order and his comments gone but basically, I'm I don't, I generally don't block people if they if there's a difference of opinion because I just feel like that cuts off any opportunity for like intelligent discussion and growth and learning but it gets to a point with anything where you just you know that it's just a waste of your time you're not getting anywhere. So basically a man that I don't know, but who was following me commented saying something to the tune of like, what's the point of a mask? coronaviruses bullshit. It's not even real. So I just replied with like, now would be a good time to unfollow me because I very much disagree. And he just kept kind of going and like, my little community online are amazing. So they jumped in and they were like, mate, what's wrong with you? And he just kept kind of going and he was like, Do you even know anyone that's had Corona virus? No, because it's not real. Okay, well, I don't know anyone from Antarctica. I mean, that that's another real
document I've ever heard.
Yeah, I use that when I talk about people who see ghosts like you always know a friend of a friend but you've never met them or don't actually know them. That is so you
not so much a public health issue.
Okay, talking about ghosts. tonight.
I'm saying that you can use that excuse for ghosts, but I'm fortunately covert Israel mate. It's a real thing.
It just kind of went on and on and I was like, Are you Are you a doctor? Are you a scientist? Because if not, I genuinely could not give less of a fuck what your opinion is I just, I don't know it to me. And like this is probably a layup but it feels very antivax It feels very much like high normal than what a doctor does. And you do not. Do you think he was following up his skincare stuff? What do you think? I really don't know his profile picture was him wearing a pair of upside down sunglasses and a KFC Baka there's a hat
sure wasn't the trick. From the life drawer
this man was about 30 years the trading saying
I mean social media fights, Instagram, you can get more randoms Facebook, you have people that you actually know. Have you guys done a cow look from all the people that you went to school with or just those because TJ was getting a bit upset or he was getting buying into the bullshit that he was reading. Don't speak for me. I definitely am speaking on your behalf now you were you paying your baby back, but it's fine. The page has you have you cold your Facebook.
Now I haven't done a cow but I don't have the Facebook app on my phone and I use the newsfeed Eradicator on Google Chrome which means I don't have a newsfeed on Facebook, which is awesome. So when I log into Facebook, Jen well one tip shout out gentlemen. I just use The use it for groups and for messenger. So I don't see anything that anyone posts about anything on my newsfeed and Facebook and it's dramatically improved the quality of my life, I would say
in group groups though as well paid because I feel like the group's I was on a podcasting group and people were saying something and then I was like, I was new to the group. People weren't happy with some new pricing on whisker or whatever. And I was like, hey, they're trying to make a Yeah, business model here. And now we're just like that they came after me. And so I went, I ended up lifting, I ended up leaving the group. So I'm only I'm only part of groups that I want to be part of. So I have a podcast group, I have your podcast group. I have my gym has a members page, and that's kind of it. So I just go off the rails now. Like, it seems like it doesn't matter what it is like I noticed that within say, even our discord, I sort of took a step back a little bit because you could say moments where it's like, we have all different types of people with different opinions and so especially with the gronk squad or whatever where it's like it's not like we all you know you talk with Seth Gordon about you know people are like us do things like this or whatever like there's not that core thinking around what gronk is and so you have all different diverse opinions, but it freaks me out because you end up with people just throwing you know different opinions and then fighting I can't be fucked
in the discord
that hasn't happened too much. Now there was only a little bit of it but it just it worries me What if we start going into the those territories where it's like, it can turn into arguments?
Is it the trade off though, like that is what's going to happen? Because you think about it, anything that has any ability for someone to share their thought or opinion could rattle someone else's. Okay even say like my mates, like the ones that Josh was mentioning, like the ones that probably should be called that. I don't speak to see your You know careful but then I've even got friends that had signs some wacky she knows that wacky but just like I'm just like you actually think that dude
yeah well I think that also like an idiot was not black and white so like I think to the point around the you know this person's at what was that why we kissing that? I just watched this come here I thought you thought I mean sister was working from home so it was a bit worrying. We got we got that claim. So Jim what Josh Did you get it dirty? Yeah. Jim what's your social media strategy on Facebook?
The whole reason I have not started I am a glow journal group and I think it could get particularly murky with beauty specifically skincare because a lot of that is saya and my community is big on SPF and I don't want people to jumping in and, like spreading misinformation again, like peeing all the time. So I don't know the way that I approach social media and with recommending products on my Instagram very much like, this is what works for me. This is my opinion, here's the science to back it up. But again, everyone's skin is different. And if I opened that up to a Facebook group, everyone would be jumping in with that and it can just I don't know exactly what you guys have said obviously beauty is pretty frivolous in the grand scheme of things, but it's the same.
It's still got it has still has that potential scooter, we were talking the other day around. TJ and I were talking about a seatbelt and I was saying, you know, people, you know, there's people who don't wear seatbelts. What was it like? I'm guessing you were alive when fucking not that all. The Cosworth cars were invented no scooter.
I don't know. He's like, Well, that was the deal.
Yeah, I guess when I got when I got my licence. An old car, a car that was 20 years old might have been born without a seatbelt. Sure. At the back. They had him in the front. That was that's real. That's crazy stuff. But you know, when when we went to school holidays, you'd, you'd have your seatbelt off, and you'd be knocking around in the back of the car.
And so what was the pushback board people say about seat belts? And when did it was there a turning point where people actually started doing it?
Just finds that was it was just all about the fines you get. If you get a fine for it, people start doing it like masks.
Okay, but I mean, Josh, have you been AdSense
true? No, I haven't. I was actually I was just thinking about that. Like, I got my TOEFL test results back on Thursday. I had the test on Friday, so it took six days. That's it. Yeah, it was a long time. But now I just I'm confused about his DNA. They thought he was an alien. Exactly. This specimen somehow a cocker spaniel. tested. No but the no it's it did take a long time. And so I haven't I haven't left it but the thing is
you My point being was it's fun go for a drive because it's I'm looking for people without a mask. No, I came out of my bedroom like I can do not back on leaving the house. But from my fluent yeah bedroom. Yeah,
Nobody's handy being able to look and say that,
but from what I can say everybody, I literally haven't the only people have been people standing next to the cast smoking or drinking coffee. Or at the front of a restaurant in a cafe where they've been working. Everyone is doing it. It's fun. Good. It's fucking good. wine. 200 bucks easily.
Yeah, sorry, I just told you.
The client that I'm shooting with this afternoon, I had to call yesterday just to go through all of the like safety. stuff so the photographer is going to wear a mask for the whole time and I have to wear it pretty much right up until the photographer's lack. We're shooting and then I'm just gonna have it lacking my back pocket so I can put it back on as soon as we're changing anything. It's full on bob Bray is doing make sense. So castings at the moment. She's like, looking at models. It's very funny hearing. I've never been in a casting before.
But hearing her go on zoom, she's got like 12 different girls that are saying today on zoom, it says very funny. Like, I feel like I'm in a movie because Brady's in the bedroom and she's saying Ah, hi like a UHF we record this are great lights. So right.
What are they doing judge? Like, what
is it a tiger is doing some form of shoot, I think and so they can do
resources, you know, so their photos, photography, so yeah, they're trying to pick the models or whatever.
And sorry, my students a shocking
I haven't I haven't actually. I haven't gone
out but that's it. Sorry, I'm pepper. Pineapple on pizza one pizza. Yeah, yeah.
pepperoni on pizza. So no yes
definitely fuck yeah. pepperoni of it. Yeah. Otherwise back off.
No, I haven't haven't heard the specific questions but I feel like it would be a, a weird position to be in. Like, I've started to feel more about like his way of doing more podcasts with people or even like it recording this audio news release I was telling you guys about when you record a bit from a company that then gets sent out to all of the radio stations. How, when you're filming something, or when you're recording how the other person could be feeling completely different. Like I've started to actually recognise them like, oh, man, they're actually like, super duper panicked. Jim, when you're doing your, your podcast, do you have any mechanism to try and calm guests down before you start recording?
It's just a giant and this was why I was so reluctant down dummies this when all of this started in March, and I sent it to you guys, Josh, I think I called you and I was like, middle of March, I was like, it doesn't even matter, because I've pre recorded up until the end of April. And by May, we'll be able to record in person. Again, I don't really understand what the big deal is, and not the case at all. But I was super reluctant to record over zoom because I feel like with my show, I'm like a travelling circus. And I have that time when I'm setting up all of my equipment to just chat to them and shoot the shit and like, I'll pretend it's taking me longer than it needs to so that we have that extra time for them to just get a bit like loosey goosey. But if you're interviewing someone over zoom, it's like you jump in and it's show time. So I just pretend that I'm still setting stuff up on the computer. I just click things around and I go just checking the levels. Here
time for small talk
and pay with a with a chat now that makes it makes a lot of sense like the the having the chat bit and like doing the remote thing there is the hard bit like we even see here where it's like you got fucking six of us and it's like it's a different mechanism to be like who's talking what's the you all of a sudden notice the people who trail off or the people who I think it must be a maybe a a young What is it called like a lost kid what is it what am I called the like the youngest child I'm guessing youngest child yeah like the finishing a sentence but as you're finishing in rolling on to make sure that no like the other people don't fucking jump in. You know. No one
is trying to save you do you what you're saying? Sorry. I definitely agree.
Jim and I like each other and pen.
Yeah, sorry guys. It's just
it's actually made so many appearances just in the episodes describe.
Running I heard this week guys, how much writing nightmare I've destroyed I've just written circus Jemma said circus. So now let's segue to talking about the circus. So now the circus guys know, legit. Let's take a moment for circus workers, circus workers. So JJ out in the dandenong, just near the foothills of the dandenongs is the not the Moscow circus, not the I can't remember what it is, but serves you could look it up. There's a circus out there that was meant to open like way back in April or something. And they're still there. They all are making no money. And they're all living in the trailers and so it's like just gone dormant before and they can't do anything.
Could you imagine a reality show on them? That would be so
That's what I was thinking about. They're all travellers. So they couldn't get on any kind of government benefit because they're not citizens of Australia. So there's like, they're literally being funded by the parent company of the circus that's paying for their food. And you know, they're staying in the accommodation that they've been provided the trailers. Yeah, that's exactly what I thought judge imagine going out there.
There's a great series on Disney plus around the making of Disneyland. And when Disneyland before it was actually done, that was like a big concern. Like previously, those theme parks and stuff had that like, I feel like there's a certain vibe to circus and, and, you know, like carnies, things like that. And so Disney was trying to do something different where it's like, he's gonna be a bit of a different vibe. scooter. Have you ever worked at a carnival?
All right. No, but I have I have got I didn't have a job once where I had to go and be the guy who was guarding the jumpy castle. We had to do is stop 15 year olds from getting on. Rest was just, you know, hope that it
was corny. Like a beat. I feel like festivals and that type of thing we don't see as much as the one is at rosebud. Yeah, I think mom's told some great stories of making out with Carnival folk down there.
Right hold on dry.
Yeah, yeah. Yeah. So well and hits too. Yeah, yeah. that I think are can that's the one mom actually won a try and get a photo. She's got a trophy. I think she came second place in the bow and heads. Beauty Pageant.
agenda 15. Thank you. Which is sort of
do they even do that shit anymore? Like you think about it a beauty pageant to the young kids in the back.
Have you heard
the beauty pageant?
Now it's so famous
mom. I think she's sort of back to the bit.
And so it's like me saying I won the pancake eating competition in 2012. Yeah. The only reason I won, the only reason I won was because the guy who won last year forgot to rock up. And so
what about remember around Melbourne, the Melbourne show? I used to go fucking crazy for. For me it was just an excuse for pig out because I didn't give a fuck about the ride. It was a sharp axe. It was like it was a show the Nickelodeon show bags that like how about Bri ones the Hubba Bubba the dirty baby.
Last one I bought was mash. Yeah, I feel like I bought a mash one.
scooter Do you wait, I can imagine that you ate those. The lollies at sovereign Hill. They're in a yellow tin. Do you know do you know the yellow tin foil? So my castle my rock? Yeah, yeah.
It's world famous castle main rock. Is it really that great exports.
And so I made that up. I was thinking about like family entertainment in the early 2000s, or the 90s or whatever you had, like, sovereign Hill was a big thing for me as a kid, like all of these different different things like even Luna Park. I wasn't sort of Metro Melbourne so I didn't go much back and imagine a lot of people did go to Luna Park. There's moomba there's all these different things that people go to what were you like what were the festivals or the the carnivals that were around in Melbourne that have just sort of faded out.
Back in the old day
boobers I don't think it was really big on because of the, just the intensity of crowds. cryo Casa was awesome wasn't a festival, but that was amazing. So that's on the way back to the way it was. But it was a techno dance party thing. And then it was going to be a brothel. And the local said, Now
what do you do now?
So it's a big, it's a big castle, and I actually worked on a shoot.
It's a real castle.
Yeah, that that was based there. It's some weed units operating it because it's all very, it's just like media, like, you know, mediaeval days school, and you'd have them. These people come Yeah, people come in. They did it every four years. It's part of like, source. And yes,
yeah. And so you can stay there. We should go and stay there. You know, you can have weddings the conference.
That would be nice, wouldn't it? Yeah. sovereign Hill, stopping Castle in Phuket SCO
functions you can literally they've got like a big you know the the chairs in castles like the weed sort of back sitting How would you like Robert vibes like the
Yeah And so what we do a tour there?
Yeah What did you do there? What like so you'd pay a fee and you'd go in and then
what kind of dream world Yeah, yeah so you go in and they have people
pretending to dream well olden days?
of course many times Big Brother man.
Of course yeah I'm thinking about drinking.
one memorable moment like my brother was quite shy, quite introverted. He was quite shy, especially when as a kid, and I remember they were hanging out having a hanging memory. That's the 70s right? So for family entertainment, they hang the dude right so they made this kind of fake hanging. I hope it was fake. Anyway. So there's not even like going through the whole processes. And obviously you had some kind of harness so he didn't die.
Do you have like that, like detentions? No,
no, that would be cool. But
so what did they do? to them?
They go, they literally pull the lever and cook the guy cannot hanged and then jiggled about pretended to be dying and it was kind of, I guess it was comedy, but I guess when when you're 13 or 12, or whatever it was. The Comedy side is not as effective as the someone getting killed in running your side of things. Anyway, they loaded him into a wheelbarrow underneath. And then they called for my brother out of the audience and I knew he just wanted to die disappear. And they made him help straighten the guy was doing the comedy thing where you his legs was stiff, like yeah rigour mortis, and they said police legs down in the wheelbarrow, and then his torso came out so they made my brother interact with these dead freshly dead executed characters.
Little girl, boy God. Absolutely. killings in the movie.
Movie World was sick in Queensland like the the stuff like the polar bear cases. And
that was, what about the old Melbourne jail? And you see where we should go. You can see where they
Yep, yep, bullshit. Bullshit. I would go to that. I love that shit.
Yeah, be fun.
You can see the trap door where they hang you. And it used to just fall out. And that's when Ned Kelly was hung in Melbourne. I'm pretty sure
it's fine. Isn't it? That Hang on, hang on. Hang on.
Yeah, he's real hung.
I mean, we've been talking about. We've been talking about words that we struggled to pronounce, pronounce pronounce.
Oh god. There was one yesterday on a phone call JJ that we were On, and I was like, What is it? Ah, I
think I don't have a thank you. So there's this I swallow the owls. So I used to say million. I now say million and I say Australia, not Australia. And if that makes you have gone like you've doubled down on your speech impediment, but I think that we want to sort it out. Why don't we can fix it up what No, you are, you are.
So I mean, the two the two main ones something and
he said exactly,
Exactly. You know, better than that's
a shit because I pronounce every syllable in exactly. I think that's perfect.
That's good. Yeah, but he's like,
No, I think it's put in so Serbs, can you say both? Say the original way that you say it and then now say how I've taught you
something. Something. Exactly, exactly.
Yeah, I've done it the other way around. Exactly. But now you say you can do it, but you
got it. I'll tell you, it takes a lot of brain power to
to do it. The grace was overhearing a meeting and apparently you were saying exactly, exactly exactly a lot. Yeah, and that wasn't great. Are there any that you can't that you mispronounce
now that I can think of off the top of my head I
I have like misspelling you know those words that you struggle to spell you get them wrong every day right now, what are you struggling to spell? accommodation is one I always put the like, I always forget where the double m goes. Well, like double and double day Don't say, I will say exactly is a double say. I don't know. That's the one I made every time
if you weren't dating, if you were on dating apps if you were single and on dating apps, you Would that would be something I think you could put on there as a quirk Castro supply accommodation?
What about um Definitely. Definitely for some reason I just fucking
defiantly well what about so TJ was writing to Gemini yesterday and he used the wrong to and TJ you were adamant that it auto corrected.
So this is how quick how quick people you know your thought process is so writing it's on a it's it's so I'm going to text you right now Josh and it and I bet you won't do it. So I was in a email client programme on my computer and I wrote blah blah blah and then at the end it said t
just quickly to say today Are you having trouble with the kids? Tom comes in the building. Tell me though I could say I could say skirt. We get now this I love saying screwed up My dad. Beautiful.
It's not a guy.
So I wrote, it's meant to be at the end. It was meant to say to for to. And as I hit return it converted to T double o
Oh yeah, it converted to a two to a T w.
And as I as I sent it, I was like, Who gives a fuck? And then sure enough, a second later, Josh writes to with a little fucking star thing.
very aggressive, passive aggressive.
No, I think it's good. I've sort of come around to just being and I what I said was because Jess and I were both on the chat. I felt like me leaving it there. Makes me sort of implicit in the whole thing. So I was like, hey, implicit, is that word? implicit? Yeah.
Yeah, no, that's
Yeah, I felt in place. complicit
complicit. complicit. What
is implicit a word good?
And what are the origins in place? It means that it's implied. So if you're saying in implicit detail, okay.
And so what's complicit
completely complicated? It's complicated.
Well, is that assumption or presumption,
presumption assumption you were involved in that means you were part of the part
of the DA complicit involved with others in an activity that's unlawful or morally wrong.
And then and then what's implicit?
It's exactly what Jim was saying. Was that exactly what Jim was saying? suggested, though, not directly expressed, implied. 16th century
is a word that my dad says. bagels, bagels.
Yes, it is. Beg your pardon. I'm pretty sure disputed Eric uses it to
think well now I'm glad you asked Are you ready? etc
etc teacher informed for I hate it I can't because it's the only one I'll really go
so so people say people do that he EC t rather than the E waste etc etc etc
and so and so it's spelt it is it actually spelled I've never spelled etc before
ATC is what it starts with that okay
perfect oh yeah that's good.
Yeah it is right yeah eight cetera
reminds me of when someone orders an espresso you're like, oh that's not just order.
You really think this
tapped into. We do have a bunch of people who listen to the show to learn how to Speak up. We've had a few people reach out to us about it. Like how to, like speak English like second language is done. Yeah.
come to the right place. However, the thing
is, this is what I was thinking. I saw a guy like you type in. I've actually, if you type in Australian podcast, you'll see there's a guy who that's his podcast is he gets fucking 25,000 views. And it's just him having a conversation with another Australian. And it's so that they can learn. People can learn the language. I feel like we could rebrand to be
an accident hunter announcement. Yeah. What is his? What's his podcast? Let's give him a shout out.
What is the DRS What is it? What is it called?
Hang on, let me get it.
finished with a review. Let's do that finish with a review that said Josh. This is your sorry, a recommendation. That's yours and then
around Give it can I give a different recommendation?
All right, if that's how you want to play the game,
I would like to recommend the Major League Baseball app. It works really well. It has all of the games. So I and it all it also, um, it's not that I'm on premium at the moment, which but if you love baseball, it's worth it. It's $34 a month, but as I said, only for big baseball fans only football fans, okay? And, and no, because this kayo doesn't have all the games. Whereas with this, I can actually see and it's in my local time timings. So I can see that July 25, being Saturday, games 9:05am 11:10am 6:10am 810. I can click and I can watch them all live. I can even watch them on my Apple TV. So that's my recommendation. If you want to Be part of the baseball crew
who's playing right now?
Dodgers versus giants that's literally in progress
bounce. I is
quickly a recommendation from you Jim.
I have nothing I haven't consumed anything new quite some time.
Nothing at all. A little product
podcast what's my favourite podcasts apart from this and belong many
I got nothing I honestly have nothing
What have you learned about yourself during IC o anything new
that what I felt was my capacity is actually I can work more than that. And work to capacity I have done good. Now I just want to sleep for a very long time. It's

being paid recommendation Quick
Fox furniture standing desks you will not regret it.
Good one good one he's standing on right now it does work really well like you just look fucking
Tip Top style then go to Derek, what's your recommendation
that I can you do your own thing that you can't Kenya? You can yeah what do you what do you find there's something coming up you know, we all know because I've got mentioned itis I've been juicing right but but this this bonus episode of you ain't seen nothing near coming out on Sunday and I reckon while editing it I've probably heard it like 10 times and I still love it it's because he's guest has been low mass and comedian Ben Lomond and it's it's just just funny. I don't know I want to I want someone to listen and tell me if it's just me. Or or explain why I so enjoy that conversation. So this is
pay the cost that you're working on. What's the what's the premise of the podcast?
It's, it's called you ain't seen nothing yet. So he gets other people to nominate a film they should have seen like the Godfather or Titanic or whatever I haven't seen. And then they watch it the night before or whatever, a couple of days before. And then they come and just talk about it. It's kind of usually comedians and stuff so they, you know, just natter on. And then the film is the widget, I guess, and Jets fan but this one on Sunday is hilarious. Very funny. Thank
you. Screw that. Jim. Did you want to update your recommendation? I recommend government Delia zoom dance classes of course.
How can people sign up seems so obvious now. You can shoot me a DM because I don't know her email address off the top of my head.
Good sibs. I mean, like a bit late to the party, but you're friendly. about that as well. But Hugh Jackman on Tim Ferriss. Yeah, I heard great things about it. And I finally finished it this morning. And it's great podcast. Yeah.
So john, what do you recommend?
I've been consuming the story of this guy, Graham about Henry. And he's a underworld figure from Sydney and he's probably late 60s, probably in the 70s now and he's done a whole bunch of bad shit but he's the most entertaining storyteller that I've seen in a very long time captivating talking about running through more park with a shotgun chasing after somebody him getting shots that it's, it's like chopper back in the day that criminal in Australia is just fascinating. Anyway, it's different desistance
needs to come into pancake collar
all the time.
What did he order
that he was friends with one of the supervisors Truck dealer.
Hi, can I have another recommendation?
Yeah, absolutely not. Absolutely. What is
actually spring gym is about to run. Okay.
What is this guy? Sorry Jim.
There's a show called no activity. I don't know if you've seen it, but when you go past it it doesn't look that exciting but fuck it's funny. It's local. And hello just gone. Sheet cops on stakeout. Done I don't
