It's the daily Talk Show Episode 123 way combat into what's happening gronk what's going on Georgie boy, welcome back to the show. I write Hello guys how I
real strong. I mean he was Can I just say that I'm very good at setting the level for the applause and if you've got a bit of an issue
it's always just up full. Yeah. That I need to work on that he needs to be subtle.
And I was a bit loud isn't it sounds small. But what am I hearing here? I'm hearing it. Where's that coming through? George? George, I
don't you're sending me something better. You've got YouTube. I've heard about JPG
we just checked.
I actually thought it was my pad. If you've pressed
The Turner all the way down, please. Sorry.
Pat, George has go down lads, you're playing May my audio. And so you have it set up for
grabs and you've pressed that and you've had the sound up. Right when it comes to the road caster mixer. Should we at least do a bit where we play that grab and then we'll talk about that ground was the ground. You can play the gratitude. She goes. Well, you see the problem is in the broadcast, you have these little E, green blocks down the bottom where you can hear if the lights on then my light was off, so I couldn't hear anything. All right, I'll play the grabbing. It was this one is a huge, huge, huge market. And I think that there is a little pivot it's only small. I actually really want to support people who are wanting to learn English. What do you need from us to make the experience better hi at the daily talk show calm because TJ How would you feel if I was to say
We just change our podcast by 10% from a content perspective, and we will triple our audience. Yeah, well, I mean, English is hard. And I, I speak it fluently.
Two points in that. Where have we landed update on that, JJ? I know you kind of did some research after that episode. You were screenshotting there's another podcast YouTuber who has pretty much found the niche of teaching people how to speak English. Yeah, I think that if, if people who are learning English will land on our content. That's great. I don't think we want to fall into the trap of focusing too much on it. Do you agree? No, I agree. It's a bit of a backflip. Yeah, it's not a backflip at all. I might I couldn't backflip if my life depended on it.
Do some camera face film from the top make it look like you're doing a backflip on the ground and then show that you're actually lying down the whole time. Yeah.
I agree. I don't know how you manage
affect us with your technical stuff like it all fit felt pretty easy. I did hear though, on Luke Luke and Louis's podcast jack post was on their show, and the whole road caster fell on the floor and played for grabs at once over the top of their show. And so this is now equivalent, very annoying, you know, our
our equivalent was probably worse when we accidentally pulled out the cord and we lost the whole recording and it was one of the best pieces of content whenever we'd ever done. It was walkie talkie content. We've managed to the 40 Toby somebody all the way to the city from our office in Collingwood and then so many other things happen. This is this is the game we're playing, guys. You
After losing after losing either your marbles or your audio files
to losing his marbles Well, I am because last night and something very traumatic happened. I know.
So, you guys Milo, guys like Milo
Okay, I love it. I like it when I drink it.
Hands up if you bought the shit in the last 10 years, like really? Who's putting my hand up? It's not me selling in the house. Okay, someone's like, Dude, it's I've had it in the last 10 years, but I feel like it's something that was just in my pantry as a kid. And I was like so wrapped about it. Yeah, I made music. I feel like people were either Milo families or Nesquik Nesquik families. Do you think that's true? Do you have both? We're both. We're both. We had waving at straws, even those with chocolate in beside them and then you see it and so forth.
difference. What's the main difference? You think between a Nesquik and a Milo? Ah, completely different. squeaks fine. Looks a lot thinner. Yeah, yeah, yeah, word. Yep. And so it really really dissolves. Yeah. Whereas you get into something later
in my life, I always find it crazy when you'd fill up the glass with milk and it would float to the top but it wouldn't be wet. Yeah, love that. Love that. Love that.
It would then turn and be like, yeah, if I can already want to be to have the bottom boy Put me down the phone. But then so it's like it's almost a meal. Milo really gave you the sense that you were having a cheeky little afternoon snack. Yes, it's being a drink or breeze wanting naughty. Yeah, well, Brady's wanting Milo to be our slightly not so bad for you dessert that we have in the evenings.
What do you think? First of all, it might Your house is an app, you're having
Literally, it's like if you got six year olds and put them into a shed, I watched this episode of like crazy kids or something where they took this house, and they put them in there and had cameras everywhere, and said, You gotta fend for yourself for 24 hours and it was all aboveboard, not sort of, you know, dangerous for the kids. They trashed this fucking joint. I know you guys don't do that. But in terms of what they are eating, it's literally your plates. They've got drinks in the fridge. That's their food. And now they're considering dessert and before they work out what they are able to cook well, so the where it all went wrong. Always. So we did it last night. And we had my low. I'm not a Milo guy preheated up her Milo. I decided to have my Milo cold. And it tasted horrendous. It was very, very bad. The worst terrible well, but if you're not a monolith guy, you course you're not going to like it. We the Nesquik guy though. Well, I don't think I was
I don't know. I don't like milkshakes. I like thick shakes. I'm more of an ice cream guy rather than milk, if that makes sense. You mean, you like ice cream versus a milk drink? Yeah, well, I wouldn't. I wouldn't.
I would never drink a big M. Yeah, this is a drink. Okay. Yeah, now that'll be in there or something. But not as in a dead room as in someone do with me. No.
Coffee, but you know what I worked out what it was. The Milo was 30% or less added sugar. Which so I've had that recently as well. It's what is the thing is is it with Milo or is it being something else?
It was a mild. Yeah, it's a less sugar Milo, but it was Yeah, it doesn't taste like Milo because they put so brave. So I straightaway picked up on it. Like I took one little sip. And I said Nana baby doesn't like like crying, you know?
embroidery tasted at then. I feel like Brie should always taste it before I taste it just to, to check on things to make sure I'm going to be okay. Yeah, what I do with bowtie? Yeah, no, that's the idea.
But it turns out that they actually put stevia in the, in the Mylo to replace that sugar. Okay, so Dre was onto it quickly. Yeah, very quickly, on to the flavour of it. Like she understood this
very quickly. We're playing Monopoly at the time. Mason got to see this unfold. And at first everyone was like Josh was just being a child. As soon as Barry took a sip, she picked up on it googled it worked out what the issue was, she actually said she took one sip and said this stevia and this and my tummy saw. Really,
dude, I tell you just around the sort of substitutes for sugar. I you know, when you use
You trying to get you're trying to get lean and then you just fall into this head fac of like wanting to have something swayed but then you don't want the sugar and so you end up landing on sugar free and it could be something I got the I got packets of marshmallows that were sugar free and these other all these my oh my god I've never had so much wind in my life. It was horrendous horrendous it's something in it what is that doing to your stomach? Yeah, what is that?
good yeah what do you what is gas? How does it work? It's a good question. I've so just the actions and stuff going on.
Laura like you know people talk about stomach like my guts have been completely stripped of any sort of flora bacteria. Yeah, bacteria. Yeah.
Well, it's so I guess he's got the gut flora. Example includes having wind or food intolerance. So it's coming from a food so I
Recently, like literally last night, very, very gassy. And I was trying to think about what I'd consumed yesterday.
No, no homeless dude. I had way too much homeless. I need to find out. I have a fish show the other day. No, no, not homeless, homeless. Because I'm thinking, what is it? It's a chick pay. And so we started to like, like lentils Nila, like getting in those legumes space. You think bodeen I got stuck into it. And we had a lot of homeless. Homeless causing waves this jimmies Yep, yep, the yellow. The yellow. theory is flawed based on I reckon you could
you could type in any type of food and say wind or gas and it would play out. Okay, let me do it. Let me first do it. Okay, I'll do it for something else.
No, no, no, no, I think No, no.
Let's go like broccoli.
And wind. So you've gone to the Javier flatulence here. Why is chocolate an obvious one?
Because it's sugar and sugar is just an absolute chemical for your body just name any food so yeah, you've done broccoli, broccoli, I think vegetables
kale, broccoli and cabbage. cruciferous vegetables which contain first I think raffinose and a sugar that remains and digested until bacteria in your gut. Oh my god in brackets, which just doesn't have fermented, which produce gas and in turn make you bloat. But don't shine those healthy grains just yet.
So I just typed in alcohol, and before I even got to finish it. The second one down is violence.
When I was drinking, Dude, look at the homeless was spot on bean dip like hummus, which is made of gas, coal.
kababayan cabanes Oh beans, aka chick chickpeas, chicken nuggets flatulence my fat smells like Burger King chicken nuggets
and I say what
we've bought the same couch as you guys. So I mentioned I texted you and said what catch you got because I came into has a memory It looks great sacred so far is it or what yeah whatever I don't buy it to be honest. I we did but she's bought it The only caveat you put the catch yeah was
it's a followed, it's a fine hold out and so the Bri says do not fat into the couch because because what will happen is I'll fat in the couch and then three hours go by
so we have to have
Glen 20th probably once a week.
No, I need to know these tips because Can I tell you guys about a game that we're planning on playing as a house? Oh, here we
bought it. We came. We came up with the idea a few days ago. And it was do you think that you could tell who's fat is whose? Yes, I don't say standalone, standalone.
standalone is a lot harder than smaller. I know Michael Jackson, there's four of us in the house.
Four of us in the house, and we're trying to work out how we would measure it. So it's like, you know, we have to record efforts into voice memos during the waiting. And then when it's game time, we present three H. But the problem is we need to make a keep them secret, so you don't know who's who's. Yeah, so we're gonna load them onto iTunes. I think
Cuz we need someone to be able to play them out but without knowing who is who's, you know, can't say like,
Oh, hey, buddy, I'm happy to do it. Yeah.
And you want me to present them? I think that's one of the ideas was Wait, ah,
we'd each have our own speaker, like our own YUI boom. And we'd secretly we'd face away from each other and we'd have ours loaded up. And we'd secretly we'd go, okay, you draw your number out of a hat. Who goes in what order but no one can see who's pressing go next.
Josh can be. I'd be happy to change the font.
When is it happening, JB?
Well, probably in the next couple of days. All right. Okay. This is amazing. What do you do?
approaches to profit probably. Today probably this weekend. You don't live in a frat house full of boys. You got your sister friend, cat getting involved living together alone cat.
Yeah. I mean, it's a classic ISO game, isn't it? Is it?
I mean, so the thing is I'm looking at this my fat smells like Burger King chicken nuggets. This is on Reddit, this is a year ago.
I mean, what was it so I'll just read it because I'm just curious of what people say. So I went vegan about eight months ago and and the farting has gone down. And I've started learning the ins and outs of what to eat and what not to eat, and what flares up my flatulence. But ever since I stopped eating dairy,
and, and made my fats when they happen to have smelt like Burger King chicken nuggets. It's revolting, and honestly makes me gag. It's like they cling on to the air and spread slowly around a room.
I have to keep a window open and air freshener nearby at all times. The question in all of this is Has anyone else experienced oddly smelling flatulence since converting? Well, this is in the vegan fitness Reddit. This someone said absolutely a thing. Yeah, yeah, fibre. Having that far be going through eat like bananas. If you have over four bananas a day, your thoughts aren't going to be good. Do you think I should be so I was. We had a meeting earlier. And I felt like I was quite clear and focused as I what's different as I like I had a banana. And so I was like maybe the potassium maybe. Maybe I can become the potassium guy is to become the guy who eats food guy. Well, I did the banana was great. It did just to be the potassium banana boy. Yeah, it's
Yeah, I don't. I don't want to go full on but as someone says, I'm trying to find map, which Yeah, Bri has done the fodmap. I think that she actually
should be on fodmap but just pushes it like how many people will have food intolerances, but just do the, the flatulence hitting your pants. I think people need to learn the hard way. So if you do fodmap, which is probably not the thing that needs to be done for everybody, but probably pretty safe, because if you realise how, if you've realised, oh my god, I feel you don't know you're better until you feel better. Like if you've always felt like shit, in regards, that's normal at that point, and so you can't really tell the difference. And so I feel that's what my brother did, and realised it's onion realise it's all these things realise that he wasn't even. It was something about not necessarily lactose intolerant. Or one of the things he was like, he worked out that he thought it was something so he was avoiding it like the plague and then had to probably
20 years Tom.
Anyway, back to the fat thing. Bow
He said to me the cutest little kid. He said to me this morning, Daddy, I didn't find in my bed. I said, No, you can find your bed. It's fine. He said, No, he will make it dirty. And it's so cute because he thinks that it's gonna do make the daddy makes the father he's made
himself when he's in bed. I was saying this the other day, I'm so proud of him. It's been probably four or five, maybe six months that he is fully toilet trained, except for at nighttime, he has to wear the nappy at night. And the way you get them off, is either let them use their bed, which were not at four, or you encourage them to go the toilet before they go to bed while they're still got the nappy on. And then when it becomes less wet in their nappy, like once it's pretty dry when they're waking up, you can take it off and start to try and good you do like how I was focused and made fun.
Stop pissing yourself.
Not I mean, you have to worry about shipping. Is he shitting himself during the night too? No, no, no he isn't. You're focusing on the facts pushing them out. Yes, I might be
like at three you're realising that a poo in your pants feels good. feels no glass feels like you're horrible. You did that. You said can you say you're like couldn't be bothered and I used to push one out yeah yeah you just it's just don't feel good
sitting watching TV and you'd be like laying down so it's like yeah, I remember that the stage as a kid where you would you would be lying down and having sort of your ass up so you shooting so it doesn't squish into like so then you can just go and drop it out. Like it's almost like chop it up. Drop it off in the toilet like
I've got the name you guys
She's and then go to the toilet and drop it into the toilet you probably called nothing leave home.
Yeah, Georgie boy, I was nine. Yeah, I was paying rent.
I was paying for the name yo guy. Whose fault is it anyway?
But it's good. Very good.
Say that applause j Bay. I'm never touching the right. One of this.
Can you show show me how would you normally have it? how loud you had it during your episode? I know that like, okay, play.
Yeah, so the problem is,
you write it down. You want it there. That's quite clear.
a quarter right. The problem is to when using zoom. It's doing all that audio. Yeah, I think I felt like I achieved something
good about myself in that moment. There's something about it.
Clap like being clap for that.
Yeah. Kids love it, you know, nasty when they're adults? Yeah. Do that a lot. Remember when we were just like anytime a guest would come in as a clap him and clap.
Sometimes people just like, Oh no, like, it instantly draws attention towards the thing that you're clapping for. That you recognise like it just even and then this difference in the clap like a slow clap adds a different element of like, people get it, it's like my, my, my, like might just the word the same thing has a different meaning clap just like this is the Australian English language.
So you can use made in many contexts, you can use it for in exchangeable for you mates. exchangeable if your mate is pissing you off my eye.
Actually, this does remind me of the so the Aussie English podcast that I listened to. The guy is interviewing his dad. And they were talking about my callback. Yeah. Yeah. He said, Are you on the PIs? And then the dad interrupts he goes now that's an interesting one, isn't it? On the PIs. What is that? Yeah. And then they deconstruct because like pis, you know is is you know to urinate.
But what we call a piece is you know, having a drink and so being on the piece
it's having a what we call a session. So you have here is in the book
you know, you don't just being on the peace. You're not just having one drink. You know, it's an it's an all night sort of thing. It's like the dead fact that he doesn't. You just worked out this whole podcasting and he's just like, he's been asked
about stuff and just deconstruct words and he's fuckin loving. Right out grind, and they fuckin flying in 100 feet.
TK sub very well.
Has it been any downloads from the last week from the bottom? I don't think it serves. Have you noticed any any change in the amount on that specific episode? Well, I think that episode did I think it did. I think it did. All right. Like I was, I was just getting the analytics up just before around how many views this got this is 200. And this is just, you know, YouTube, we get hardly any views where all of our all like 90% of our downloads come through audio. So how again for YouTube was so this is it's a it's it's sort of the upper end. So it's it's done 266 views so far. And most episodes,
probably low 200,000 some going into 300. Okay. So it's a
it's doing okay, it's doing about average, to be honest.
Worth testing with the name changes so why is it I think we need some of that SEO juice and forum posts Josh, I've got an idea.
That was flatulence. No.
I was just looking at the Aussie English the YouTube channel and he's website like the flat out on him. He's done like this dude has done a good job at just like finding a niche that probably isn't that sexy. And he's able to put a whole bunch of marketing efforts into to build like a bit of a funnel to, you know, get people to sign up for these courses, the Academy, all of that. I'm sure he's making, you know, a wage for himself. There is what would you pick like if I had to and Academy podcasting because you're too good at it. You're too You're too knowledgeable about it. It's too close to you. What would something that you would have to pick that cannot be?
be something you necessarily love. But the goal was you had to create some kind of following around it based on a need out there. And you had six months to do it. What do you reckon you'd pick?
It's interesting. Because I mean, the thing is, it's not going to be fat. Like, I think that the problem is anything. I don't want it to be fun.
But no, but the thing is, it will be fun. This I feel like I've got such a long, it's just funny. It won't be funny, because there's so many things I'm interested in. Like one thing I was thinking of, kind of tell you, yeah, my ID and we might might actually go get the domain name and everything, you know, before this episode goes out. So the concept so you've been talking about doing a podcast around mindfulness and stuff and interviewing people
in the behind the scenes. The idea that I had was using the phrase, it's a comedy, okay. So the it's a comedy that I do.
So it is a podcast, where I chat to
comedy comedians, comedy people, whether they're
on the stage or on screen or behind the scenes in the script, writing stage and all that sort of thing. It's once a week, and I sort of build a niche in that specific area because I think about how many stand up comedians there are. But a quirky is fact that I'd be like, oh, that'd be an interesting chat. But it's on this. It has a skew to focus on
the craft, and all that sort of thing. Funny People, funny people. Yeah. What do you think about it as a process? Yeah, it's very specific. It's very, it's in the name. It's comedy. What do you think of the name? Yeah, I like it. So a comedy show calm would have to be the domain name. Yeah, yeah, it's a comedy calm is taken. Yes. And it's a great way there's a park. It's a park to mine and there's a cat for like stumbling falling.
To sleep, what do you think? Like so the thing this, I was thinking about this, I mean, like, you know, we encourage we're encouraging so many people to create podcasts and collaborating with people making podcasts. How when do we?
When do we branch off and do it like, when do we do others? Do you think TJ if you had our own show our own show like it will, this will always be the big part of what we do. The idea of like, recording another podcast for us isn't hard yet yeah. I think it's it's the opposite of the approach we're saying for this guy who found something he might like the English stuff, but I think he's definitely seen like it's a hot the hot he's vocab would consist of gap in the market, you know, solving a problem. You know, Google Analytics tells me or whatever it's like and you know, all that stuff I think would be a part of his vernacular too. For end and drive why he does it. So is a fine a lot of big thing with content like I
it so much of it goes to
making podcasts doing stuff where it's like you're showing people how to make a podcast, all that sort of stuff.
Do you think that from a business perspective? Like, what would you do? What would your thinking be?
Yeah, I'm not I'm not. I'm not sure. I feel like
the we're always pushing us to like, where your strengths lie, I think is in like, seeing these obscure approaches. like you'd be the guy in a past life who would somehow found out how to sell like a, you know, pain caps. Yes.
I can put it that way. You may dig out what's the unsexy version? That is definitely so the education stuff. Yeah, there would be heaps around.
Yeah, what would be you'd look at.
I feel like this there would be heaps in
finding a job in
Like in the current climate or whatever, like the job finding stuff, so doing something around
people who've just lost their job, who potentially want to dabble in freelancing, do something. But also still like the idea of a nine to five, you could put it like this. What about this recruitment section of it, too, so you're also like, yeah, funnelling people in getting a recruitment fee, that type of sucker something around a podcast where every episode is, and it's not for us, it's for somebody else, and it's called something around your CV. And so imagine future time, you know, you want your employee to get a good grasp of who you are. And you're able to go on a podcast, that the person has a chat with you. And they they literally dive into your story, everything and make it really compelling. And so it's like a podcast episode that serves as a CV, and it's like, it's what you lead with. And so it's like playing to the audio experiences you can draw
Put into people's inboxes it's rather than looking they can hear you, rather than looking at sort of words on a piece of paper, or on a PDF, you're taken through an audio experience of someone's CV like that. Yeah, I think there's something around the
personal brand stuff that you could do like helping especially people who are transitioning for like new careers or whatever. I think there could be some Yeah, when that Yeah, yeah, I guess it wait where you kind of, and maybe I'm so wrong about this guy's approach or the English podcast but I'd be fucking loves it. Maybe he's like he's calling GIS ago was education. And he few and so then the people who can really wind up finding something that it feels like a calling or It feels like they're meant to be doing it. And then it serves that need and is solving a problem. And then those two combined, you can be super fulfilled in what you do. And it's
Yeah, cuz not everyone wins in the in the those two sides. Mason What would you do if you had to have another job? another job? Ah. I mean when you were talking about the podcast like the education stuff I went real nation to like something around composting or bees or
something like that you would be good at just like something something semi outdoorsy but not that real tough guy outdoors, you can still have soft hands while you're doing it. And just for our new new non speaking, non English speaking, good listeners. It's not something it's something just
my son likes to throw those in just so you keep talking. Yeah. something specific. Yeah.
You know, it's like, when you when you and Josh did the Instagram Live about four months ago.
After four Chole Yeah, yeah, there's a good bench you're walking around your backyard showing the worms and stuff like that. I've never seen you so passionate about anything else. Yeah, I do get around the world picking questions and yeah
I'm passionate. Do you think you're a passionate guy?
Yeah I reckon I'm a passionate guy. I don't know if I don't know I think it comes across in my actions as opposed to how my excitability and how much is very true yeah. I was looking
I was looking at your calendar because I can access everyone's calendar. Can you see mine here? Yeah.
Not much in the account I get it I get it but it saves puts everything in these calendar. And so I saw the other day. It was like 8am to 9pm just had like blocks of work, man What? Yeah, that much. Oh, yeah. The the nine p you know why that 9pm was so I probably finish it like six
Do something that 9pm was because I kept dragging stuff from the previous day being like I didn't do that. So I've been moving forward a time and it just kept getting pushed and pushed and so you weren't working that why not till 9pm Nana I say nice. That's not a bad good idea though.
Just make it Yeah.
Productivity guys Yep. George what would you do
a Naish job.
God I have no idea
maybe IT technician
sound like that. I like that. Network admins job.
Internet internet specialists.
Not very good at school it PreSonus specialist
now you got anything
Unless you've got to say something because otherwise just seems like I'm pulling you back
What am I good at?
How to be good at it how to brush it cat. Oh yeah. Cat looking after a cat podcast. Yeah. The PC specialist
It could just be the mo could be
with that no calm
things that you can do with
what can you do? That's good
that domains available. Which one was the specialist? Oh yeah, great not a five inch rock. That's not bad
circling back? Why should we pick one I feel like we need
But I think you could be the Community Manager for kick
Yeah. Well sorry to shout hate that. Oh,
why? Why much? too much time on talking to people and community like time on phone. She doesn't want to say much like, reply. I don't want to have to reply to a million dams all the time. Hmm.
You know what? I think he could work
Yeah. Is that the what is the moving image? I think it's um, yeah. Could you could imagine yourself being I can imagine you in sort of a government role where you, there's an archive sort of special thing you probably like if they've got a very basic sort of database software. I think you can work in a library. Oh, yeah. Oh, yeah. I think it'd be great.
If you can be loving, like, think about all the best
IMAX the the massive IMAX Theatre in the city hall. It's like they they get the massive tapes like the actual like film. And so like the yellow one is why something like 120 kj, like what do you do? afterwards? Like you could be the guy that manages that that's what I would do. That's what I would do. I would love to actually I used to I just want to work in a cinema where they actually played film and like had to load it into something cool about walking through the back with the projectors, and putting the the film in. Think is your job, but
from a future of work perspective, you're in trouble.
What's the future of work job for you something to do remote Netflix cataloguing? Yeah, you can work on the algorithm that's going to help with like, improving recommendations on Netflix, head of Netflix, you've heard is similar now to what he already does. You can be with the content. You could be the guy suggesting
To content to Netflix to purchase to put on their platform. So, did you know about the I don't think I'd be good at that either. Have you heard about the Netflix prize?
The Why was it fixed price. So the Netflix prize, it was sort of like the mid 2000s. I'm just having a look at it now. The Netflix prize was an open competition for the best collaborative filtering algorithm to predict user ratings for films based on previous ratings without any other information about the user users or films, ie without the users or the films being identified except by the numbers assigned for the contest. So they said the competition was held by netflix and online DVD rental and video streaming service, and was open to anyone who was either connected with Netflix Netflix like a current employee.
On September the 21st 2009, the grand prize was a million dollars and was given to Bell cause pragmatic chaos team which bested Netflix own algorithm for predicting ratings by 10.06. So basically 2009 they gave a million dollars to a team to create the best algorithm for recommendations where he's
right. And he's good George is all about that and I really thought yeah, but that money was that worth it? That story you think? Bitcoin?
The English, you know, speaking? Yeah.
I mean, I was watching the master class, the screenwriting master class, and that's what I want to do. I want to I want to do that. Only screenwriting magazine, do you want to get around it? So yeah, I've been asking you for the login for the last month for one
I mean, like, fuck off the. So yeah, I'll do it yet the screenwriting bit. I'm writing stuff so I could write it and they sound the same. Yeah, I would definitely I was like, actually, I loved what you were saying last week about all that writing in social media and spending time writing. That's what I wanted. Yeah. Okay, well can we start? Like every day? Could I send you a sane and you send me a saying, oh, that'd be sick. Yeah, yeah so Okay, so I'm using so final draft have a 30 day free trial, which is good. Like, I would recommend using that it's very good from a
you can't export as a PDF, but if you just send it to me send the final draft file I can just send you mine back. I've got like a little hack in to be able to get it as a PDF I like imported into Scrivener which I have and then export but that'll be fun. Okay, good. So screenwriting no judgement because I'm not I'm not very good at it.
Neither am I. I am but what I was going to say is during the table read when they're reading these things, you can see how anxious everyone is because they have to read out loud and sometimes they're using like, difficult names or hard Words to Pronounce. And so you sit there in front of the AP is trying to write it out. It's not good. Absolutely not interested. All right. gronk happy weekend. Enjoy your Sunday. And if you want to if you want to be part of the screenwriting club, email me fight the daily talk show.com it's just with JB and I you have to submit a piece of writing
Is that okay? We get the first one with you to off the ground. Yeah, what it is like I'm I'm already writing I've got the Yeah. The The great thing about final draft is it's the choice of studios and production companies worldwide BBC Netflix, ABC Sony Warner Brothers BIG MEDIA COMPANY.
It's a 270 Australian dollars at the moment. Yeah, really cash, if you think about but you can do the you can do the trial and it's my 30th.
Yeah. In a month, so I'm doing it. I think that's gonna be my prayers. I'm gonna say, Can I get final draft because I've already ordered. I've got a mechanical keyboard, which is going to be arriving any day. So it'll be like, really late does that mean so it's gonna be like really? So like, right on? Yeah, it will be like really, really? clicky like a typewriter. Yeah. So is that why?
What's the point? they feel that they get just a nice what's the point? It makes it a nice typing. Like it's gonna be nice and tactile to press case. You gotta feel like I'm like writing a screenplay in the 90s. Like, it will be like it's a it's there's a physicality to it because I would just be like you'll be able to hear if you're in the other room. When I'm writing you'll be able to hear like it
noisy like there's been blow ups at detector companies. There's blood protect companies in open plan offices where the engineers are using these mechanical keyboards, because they're so loud. They sound fucking annoying and you sound like the exact guy buys one share. Yeah, I get the sense. The one thing I'm worried about is Dr. K, she actually recommended this one, it's the which which one is the most it's the the crime, the K, the current K to the K two and it's
c Kron k two k one, K, K two. And mine's got the aluminium outsides frame. And it's the series two, which I think has a slightly better elevation. One of the criticisms over the K two is that you do need a wrist rest, because it's quite high because the key The keys are like this high because you need to sort of
He's excited he's got a keyboard at home to start tapping away. Yeah, just use whatever you've got.
Quentin Tarantino, Han writes all of his scripts. Wow
That's impressive. And he only has one he has one script which he he uses for like the raids and stuff so
not so it's like one handwritten script that's got the guy has stuff oh, he's only done he's only done non films I think it might not. He since he can't afford a lot of fail it is wrong.
It's a lot of fun. It's a lot of fucking films, but it's not 50 but it's the the Japanese that he's, he's he's the guy that's only released them as like, this is Quentin Tarantino's for film, this is going to tell you how many films, directors making cheapy I feel like that's quite it's a lot but I also love that he's gonna he's only gonna do one more and then call it a day. Yeah, he's doing 10 and then that's it because he doesn't want to be an
Director that gets out of touch. Guys Christopher Nolan, Christopher Nolan has written 1818 movies Emmys is he made directed 15 I'm not what I'm not thinking. I just thought it was low, but it didn't. It's not the takeaway how much effort goes into it? I know it takes a lot of effort, but I think like you said they'd be familiar Scorsese's made how many is Judd Apatow made? Me Chad's probably done a fuckload Judd.
Oh, all right. I reckon he's probably seven.
Is that my answer? No, no, no.
You're counting. I mean, this also I'll say, I'll say, heavyweights the 40 year old virgin 1-234-567-8910 1112 1314 1516 1718. If this is all his films 1924 five are you doing directed or written 10 1112 1313 News. Filmography
Mind. No so directed he's done 12345678 he's a director that API and then he paid his project for he's done a lot, dude. Yeah, unbelievable. Good blood.
he's written 17 and directed 66 Wow, is it? Scorsese? Anyways? He's better than 1050 years old. Yeah, that's true. All right.
Thank you enjoy your Sunday, everyone. We love you. Bye
