It's the daily Talk Show Episode 834. What's happening guys? What's going on? Happy Thursday. Great to be here. Very, very happy you would just you're telling me that something happened at the cafe that involved Bodhi beings being a hero.
I mean, he's only three. But you know, and he dresses like a superhero. So it's fucking pretty obvious actually. He's a superhero. He usually wears Spider Man outfits. He you know, has like a monster rabbit. Sort of like a dressing gown that he wears to the cafe like a monster rabbit, a superhero? No, it's just called monster rabbit because it's a dressing gown that looks like a rabbit and has like, you know, hood that has little ease on it. And so he feels like he's a little superhero. But he actually had to be a superhero. He had to actually, you know, there's a lot of superheroes that like Don't use the powers like Bodie and see how he had to use these powers. The power being very small and lightweight that he could be sort of thrusted over the counter to save the day because the lady at the cafe locked herself out of the cafe. She came out. She came out of the doors which automatic went to drop a coffee to someone in the car. And they caught it close behind her and she walked up and said, Oh, shit, and she was the only person at the cafe. But luckily she'd opened the window, the service window to speak to me before because that was how I was able to lift Bodi over the counter, drop him into the cafe. And you know, there's there's sweets and treats on offer, which I thought he could have gone straight for and we wouldn't have been able to stop it. But all we had to do was run around and there's like a, you know, the big exit buttons on sliding doors. And he just hit the exit button. save the day. So he's the local here. I'm surprised actually that he hasn't made it into the local paper. So this morning, I say that this is the local. This is the local paper, which is literally a waving paper. It's caught yet. There's no messing around the eastern edition, the local paper and it's free. And it's good for me. I like the time that we're in the stage for lockdown. Three weeks in three weeks to go in. It's probably not a time that you want to be picking up newspapers. I'm just you know, in the public way that someone else has been sitting there reading it is a COVID issue. Well, I don't know. Yeah, I feel like there's it. I mean, it's gonna be fine. And that's why I picked it up. But it is just a sensitivity of like, they removed a lot of cafes removed newspapers, even in that first round, because they it's like something where you're waiting and you're using your hands. You're touching an opening like it's you Just trying to eliminate that shit, right.
But also, it promotes the newspaper promotes the person that wants to really see it and enjoy their time where they just want true true arguments. Yeah,
Yeah, Yeah, true. And anyway, I picked this out because I was like, who's running a local paper these days? This thing has been running for a very long time. Since the 70s. I think someone started this. And I opened it up. It's bizarre. It's just like, there's all these advertising. There's like the first page you open up to is literally just like, people who wanted and then on the right, so it's like the Crime Stoppers section, but it's not Crime Stoppers. It's just ticks and crosses, ticks and crosses. Some other Council. Well, this is I think, a local business. It's actually printed in Fitzroy, right. New judge.
Yeah. So it's, it's hard for us to get an ad
You reckon? I don't know, mate. But I was just thinking if you can't sell podcast ads, you definitely, you know, couldn't sell newspaper spots. And it's, but I wouldn't mind mine, you know, like, I don't know who's gonna, who's gonna get it. I'd skip through this is just two of the things that jumped out at me. You know, some local news, this is just feel good stuff. A student nurse who incurred $660 of parking fines in a school zone near dandenong Hospital has had the bill waived by the greater dandenong cancel. Now that's
so how broad is this? how broad is the newspaper? What sort of their age
doing dandenong stuff like Daniel from like from bullying is Yeah, probably 2530 minutes.
Yep. So it's like maroondah it's like a whole bunch of different regions. Maybe it's like, local, independent, local and independent not associated with any other publication in this area. So it's the Eastern District I think Eastern edition. No. This is made in their radio cutbacks. What are they saying FCA has announced that it will introduce statewide breakfast shows across its nation, sir, its national heat network of regional stations, the hidden network station in Western Australia have already adopted this approach with statewide breakfast shows airing weekdays, the regional network in Victoria will follow.
That's interesting. I mean, I wouldn't have thought that that newspaper would have any examples of like radio stations that they must write in those areas that are affected.
Well, yeah, I mean, this is like
local news. What does that mean is that I go into warragul or something like how far
behind what's the east, the east of Victoria, the East eastern suburbs, pretty big Eastern.
What's the news all around. It's called local news. Read the local paper paper.
Anyway, I mean, this is they are so the eastern like it spreads, it sprawls probably like 20 k in width. Like it's a big it's a big catchment area goes all the way out to ferntree gully lilydale. Any regional stations over that period, I would say no. Yeah, probably not. Nana, no regional stations. Anyway, bizarre, but it was, um, it's almost like I picked it up because I was like, it's, it's almost like, looking into the, into the olden days. Yeah. Like, that's what it feels like. Yeah.
When I was when I was 18. I used to, like, send press, I was sending press releases. I got the details of the local paper, like, the journalist who I was quoted in an article, I just kept it and so every time I was doing it, then I'd write a press release, and I'd send it to them.
There was there was a I mean, there's like so I got into the past. As a kid, get this, the Broughton Bob's is like a C bar. So they're built out like, you know, sort of rectangle pier that sort of spins around in the middle you just swim this bar so you're not getting nipped by shark. And anyway, as a kid would go there down in Brighton, and I and I take a little feller I was and no superpower like my son, but I would run and I would jump over the old men sunbaking like, because they're just lying sprawled out on the, on the pier. And so, one time I jumped this guy, and all of a sudden this person was like, excuse me excuse and also offer some sprinting off. Just me fucking speedos. His eight year old and then the guy came caught up to me. He said, Would you mind if I am on from the paper Would you mind if I took a photo of you doing a jump and Have a hands on as I say this I go with a long wind child to deal with fucking jump is a bit suspect. But a bit I may I Linton and I fatten God in the paper and it was big mom still has the clipping or I can I can be good. Yeah, I reckon we get it out. Yeah, man it was it was a proud moment for the jacket family
it's funny how there was certain things when you were a kid that were a little bit sort of magical law like the paper being one of them. Yeah. But the holidays like when we went to Hamilton Island I remember we would go to winter like Whitehaven Beach or whatever where so you'd go on a boat and then they'll let you off onto this beach. It's got a beautiful white and sand and all of these tours. There was always someone who was filming and taking photos and then when you got back afterwards that'd be selling you know, DVDs and like, you know Yeah, yeah the standard was the photo thing so they'll go to the the islands photo shop where it was all sort of done and they would print the photos out and you could buy them and I just remember a guy had a Nic on this would have been 2001 two then two maybe the 2000 2003 and he he would get everyone to jump like what you were saying and it was like the real it like it was the coolest trick. The idea that you would be you know on the beach and he would get you to jump and you get this awesome photo of you in the air. Yeah, and for like probably two years after that. It was the only type of photography I could do. It didn't matter what the occasion but like all right now everyone let's do a jumping shot. So many photos looking back at photos of like my mom and Auntie and Nana like jumping on Christmas just like everyone's jump How high
was Nana getting?
Might What do you think the new version of like that feeling
of getting match? I would be okay. Yeah. going viral on
Tiktok going viral and tic tocs a good one. What about like, I mean getting tagged in something by a celebrity or even just like getting a selfie with somebody and then posting it and then them liking it or something like this. What is it? It's attention, right? It's like lots of people being able to see I'm still blown away that like, I reckon it's most years I get a message saying I just saw you on TV.
The spring cars.
No, no, not the TV show that are hosted on set. Thanks for bringing that up. No, no, not the expose a filthy behaviour.
I was walking along bond I beach in Sydney so we lived across the road Amy and I
definitely saw something in that show. I can just imagine not wearing your bond I'm sure
that maybe maybe can confirm
quite possibly No, we lived across the road and so I would always go looking into smacking cruisin and bond I rescue is it's probably a popular TV show around the world. Yeah. Bondi Beach is the one of the busiest beaches like it's the busiest beach in Australia, I'd say. Even around the world. It's like known as a very fucking busy beach, great surf everything. Anyway, so you can fit like, I reckon you could fit 10,000 people on that beach. One in one city. Yeah, I don't know the moment. Anyway, Bond rescue films most days in the summer. You see them cruising around, and it was they It was a rare Towards Christmas time and being hot in Australia Christmas time. You know, you wouldn't really think that there would be reindeers around like, it seems like a snow thing, right? But sure enough, the bond rescue team had a fucking reindeer on the beach. And it was a little wine. It looked like Bambi is beautiful.
It wasn't the actual reindeer though. Was it? Oh,
well, what are they like a deer, like a small deer,
but it was an actual animal.
It dude, it was a reindeer. It was a mini It was a baby one. And so they could hold it and I'm sure they didn't have sun for too long. It's probably pretty cool. You're getting someone brought it to
them as a gift or
producers might take it take a ride along the base. And you know, and you'll get some fuckhead wanting to take a selfie and we'll get a great shot of that. And then we'll run it every year. That was me
that you were getting a selfie with the reindeer.
I came in and I was like, and I was like, Oh, can I get a selfie with it? And I took a selfie with the reindeer and obviously they're filming that. Have you got the
Yeah, yeah, I reckon I'll find I'll put it on Insta today. I've got a couple of things a couple of throwbacks today. The guy
herself, why don't you do a throwback carousel famous? Great
So I'll do one of me on ultimate spring cars as well. Yeah. Okay. So yeah, I get a message on Facebook. And it was mostly my we won. We won the we won bondo rescue. Like thanks for asking. Yeah, I was saying I was saying a couple of times, like just randomly. Yeah, I came across Good night. It was one of my best performances. You know, I really sort of held the camera strong. Hold fine, though. So it's starting to out, you know, become a bit dated. So, anyway,
I've I've gotten glands that are huge. Like Mike is a gland. Somebody told me yeah you glad lands at like I'm so I'm getting sick or I am sick got real sniffily, you know, what do you think?
out one to get? No, this is I haven't.
It's been It has been a month since I've gone out.
Do I have to go and test? It seems ridiculous. Oh my god, what would
you do? I feel like you wouldn't potentially get you just do you think that people would be really pissed off with the idea that I am feeling sick or unwell and not really wanting so I've for people who don't know I have had a COVID test before I was being obviously cautious probably similar symptoms to what I have right now. And we've got the test and I was negative negative to look
I don't think you need to get one just don't fucking go out it's annoying because I want you to enjoy the fresh air but you do have your spin bike put on put it on the balcony that's a good idea with get some amazing with some fresh with your fresh air but I don't like I think you could literally we got we still got three weeks of this so even if you had it you will know if you fucking have it probably if you give it
I don't know I wonder how much of this like like you can actually see my What are they called glands you can see them me with swollen glands but I wonder if swollen glands is on there
is a sign of an infection intend to go down when you recover? So I mean fact. That's usually a sign of infection.
Yeah, it's I mean surely just being indoors for fucking a month did it?
Yeah, I mean, but it's a coincidence that I was feeling fine and then I go out for a walk and then And then it just went downhill. You
had your mark on your mask on. I think if you stay indoors for another 14 days you you love that I'm saying that to you. If that's what you push, right, seriously? Well, I think if if you're worried, I don't think you need again, fine taste, because the thing about the ramping up of the testing was paid. Everyone was still working. So people were feeling like you and then going to work and that's where the spread was coming. You're not going anywhere.
Yeah, so I mean, development,
vervain getting many packages and things like that, which I've had a few. Yeah, but I just it's saying, Oh, yeah. Be someone like like, I know. Like, maybe I'm sounding ignorant, but it's not like I'm gonna go now. And hug a bunch of people like I'm so sure that why it's so funny is I'm the most socially distanced guy in Australia right now say that with a lot of confidence to breathe and say I haven't got like I've just got got my coffee.
Yeah I mean the thing is the lead there that's the that's Yeah, that is the only transition point is the lead people touching leads, but hopefully people at the cafes who are working smells
sanitise the lead like they clicking
on it that's what you want mine smell I smell one the other day and I could just you know when you just like you just like a fucking dog that sniff and other other fucking dogs in the space
know what we should do? This is something getting Tov it's fucking annoying. Hundred 70,000 people in the US have died from COVID right? It's not good. But if you have had COVID if you are gronk send us an email, write the daily talk show calm include the negative or sorry the positive result so that we can confirm it. And we will send you some stickers and to let us and congrats on baiting Cova and always I'll lick the envelope. I think there'll be fun height the daily talk show.com Have you yet directed anyone will email? I don't
know, but they're gonna get it. I can. little stickers. That's good. That's gonna be good. Yesterday I one of those days you just fuckin spiral into a world of negativity and and you just like it's almost like you've got commentary on on your own state within your mind but it's not enough to sort of pull you out
like you in the States because I feel like you fucking call up just ready for what's going on with me.
I'm actually a bit late but
I was out the fucking midnight I was
working. Just calling people right
now as deep house music on my computer last night.
Can you not use the daily talk show? YouTube to channel for date, because for whatever reason, they're all like, bikini models in the thumbnails. And so every time I open up the daily talk shows YouTube to livestream this. All I see is just like it looks like some sort of porn site, essentially.
Well, music I didn't know when you actually said that I was I didn't even think about that because it's, what they've done is there's two and a half hour Deep House mixes, and they've literally taken vloggers who have gone with a girlfriend to the Greek islands and yeah, I bazer in there. So there's like, footage of these day clubs and it's fucking sick. Like, I listen thinking about I mean, I'm when we're able to go by ourselves back to Greece, and just sit on the beach. You know, drink a few fucking mythos beers, and just relax and listen to like it and I it's interesting. I actually didn't. I've never really thought like, you know, I'm the music guy. Oh, like, you know, but it's funny how I used to go out to clubs and shit when I was young like we used to listen to house music My brother was you know, DJ and you know, he sort of influenced me I had decks when I was younger and anyway, I fucking love Deep House. I love
how do you describe a powerhouse it's just
if you've ever made nightclubbing should you lie to none and I said there's like, it's more just like cruzi background Bates versus like a you're like the Melbourne bounce is like a type of music that's fucking just
like real drop be like so
this is I guess this is a little bit more like, dumb. Like down to the downtown. But yeah,
it is great in the background with a female vocal over the top and it just blends in the back. It's just literally think about that. Stop being on being on a beach in grace. If you've ever been into an
actually better way, that's what you're listening to because Britney and I listen go into all the music we like so we listen to Taylor Swift. Oh my God, this reminds me and we're in Italy.
I Kefauver cafe Del Mar like remember those albums like Del Mar that was like a
it was like yeah, cafe Del Mar chill out radio Ibiza live stream cafe Del Mar was a very very popular album back in the day anyway, just love Deep House. I digress. It's not about Deep House today. But it is worth searching.
The negatives you're listening. So you're listening to that last night.
While that was just Yes,
though of nostalgia. Do you think do you think it's like I could have been a DJ and now I
can and so that when you got me later in the night, I'd sort of I was coming out the back end, I was partying I'd found found my stride and I'd, you know landed on some deep house and I was fucking fired up. But I was thinking, I wanted to share a few ways that I found I was able to sort of remove myself from that negative spot. This is good. This is like Europe without travelling in Europe. This is Yeah, how to fucking get out of your your head and escape the noise. So one of them is VR, like I just got to
target to, to know I think you need more than two to be a list like if this is BuzzFeed if I was the editor. We can't really break a listicle right, I got
I got I got three. Okay. Let's go in order of how I did it. Okay, number one. Una, playa. Play uno with your partner. It's me knew I was in a bit of a slump and, and she said one game. And I said, Yeah, I thought about it.
I felt happy. I was like, Fuck Yeah, let's do this. And you absolutely destroyed her.
She's gone. She hasn't been home all night. It's locked in. She's back and let me know No, I did destroy her though. I don't know. Well, we did one game I lost. So that's not gonna happen. Which I which she said you want to do with the three we're gonna do business free like just fucking we just like it's it's always the, the competitive nature in me which I don't think I'm even that competitive. He came out and made me feel good. I was like, Okay, I'm into this fucking Let's go again. It's almost focus, right? It's like attention to a task and my focus was to win. And so we played another game, one that said you want to go on and then we did it again. And then I think we ended up paying for games and the last one Just you know some call it a game of skill others call it a game unlock but fuck me I got a good hand that last one and I put it on Instagram and I just yet she made it pick up about 16 cards and and I walked away feeling really good about
myself so and so the aim of the game is that you're trying to get all utahns gone, isn't it?
Yeah, you gotta get Yeah, you gotta get to uno and then I can drop the last card and walk out. Just partying. And so that's one is that only Trump said one. That's one. That's why I'm just playing some uno with a partner. Even if you lose it's a bit of fun if you're single guy. Well, it could be
I reckon. No, no is a uno is a to play game. calm. If you're single and want to play uno, let us know. And the deck one of the gronk can play uno with you and I'm sure there's a virtual version.
Yeah, definitely. Definitely virtual wanna go there. Anyways, Just find a game with a friend and and get you nothing. You know specifically the other one is okay, I'm gonna load that load it up. I just saw just go for a fucking ice cream last night for myself. I was like we're gonna get ice cream. You know? This is 740
man 740 it's fine 888 risky business. You definitely don't need to worry at that point if maybe even and I don't
know dude, there's a fucking ice cream shop. Like a legit ice cream store in temple stone in my house. And city five is kind of remembered. I mean, I we were disappointed in the branding that we couldn't work it out from first glance. I was like dairy Well, not not. This is top in men top end like erebos top end. Dairy bale is oldest style, think newest style. So this is like a Pick a lane and not trampoline. Sorry. It's more like trampoline. If you're gonna sit on anything it's trampoline.
What about rock? What's happened with cold rock?
Cold rock is still around. I think he's one's beat. Yep. My brother
loved that. James he used to put fruit tingle. He used to get so bad. And then fruit tingles might
tell you it says a lot about you if you put fruit tingle or nudes into your cold rock, your your unique individual Yeah, but I respect it I respect so I went and got an ice cream by myself. And at that moment moment, I'm just just laughing at the thought of me just going to get an ice cream. And it was a bit sort of naughty. I got home at like eight at like 758 I was like, in fact, we're
just like and got in. Did you think about getting a fair shake instead of because I feel like those places if they've got ice cream, fucking real easy to just down the street, you know up a straw.
Now I'm ice cream guy. Well, here's the thing. You can't you can't do the taste test anymore. like shit. I'm so
glad like To be honest, that was the biggest anxiety because brain loves taste tests and yeah, no, you would too. And I
just I loved it. I didn't push back I said. She said, Oh no, no, I can't do that. I say fine. I've got to run the goal, don't I? I need to just pick and go for it. Commit. And so how many people are at his store at this point? Absolutely. No one else but me.
Yeah, I had my mask on I had my mask on.
And we got that like imagine if imagine can a year ago that that footage leaking of you wearing a mask at 10 to Wait, am I gonna get harmed real quick? I want Sorry, sir. You know, we can't allow you to taste anymore. What?
Anyway, I was cool with it. She was so sweet. The girl I got the I got Bailey's and brownie. Oh, and my thought was, I said to it, I didn't, I don't I really hope it's not to like, alcohol flavour. Like I didn't want to say. She said no, it's great. It's great. And then and then I sort of and then I said, fuck it. I'm going she's like great choice. I took a tub home last night. And sorry. She nailed it. It was perfect. So Bailey,
any Oh, Colin, you were saying you're wanting a drink? I've been having four litres of Bailey's ice cream is fuckin a bit slower. It was my how much of that Bailey's ice cream you waiting? Because you didn't use it? I'm sure it was either yesterday or the day before you saw it was yesterday feeling a drink feeling like a drink but not gonna have one. And so you had a Bailey's ice cream. I think this means that you've? Yeah, that's right. I haven't had a drink.
The point is I'm
not having ice cream. Just having the shakes like
it's not the same and I didn't haven't consumed alcohol since I said I was quitting alcohol again. Anyway, it's all good night drinking Bailey's ice cream went down a treat and I was pretty fucking happy about myself. I got home though was that I
am so sorry Tylenol cup
cup. I didn't go with because I wanted the experience in something you know to do. I like to eat the kind I wanted to feel the whole process. And so I went with a waffle cone and it was fucking beautiful. Anyway, that had me feeling good. perked up on sugar. Probably a bit late for that, but I got home parked in the garage. And this brings me to my fourth suggestion. So just to recap. I sorry, third yet sorry. Third. So first one. Ooh, no. Second yet player. No second one. Go get yourself an ice cream, sort of lean into this sort of lean into that negativity. just you know, get some sweet get poked up, then followed by a meditation. And so it's not it's not just an average meditation specific type of meditation. Have you heard of metta? meditation? No. So metta not being a ta metabank, ma Dolce, and metta meaning loving kindness. And so it's a loving kindness meditation, which the need to go too hard into it but there's a, it is basically bringing to mind someone who it's very easy to feel love and kindness towards. And so, for me, it can be thinking about my child, think about how much I love him and you know, you got to think about someone who your relationship is
sort of, it's not it doesn't have a very easy edge. Yeah,
exactly. It's just like that person. It can be anyone. It could be somebody you don't even know but You just love them and they do so much for you, whether it be listening to whatever, and you bring them to mind and you and you said a wishing, loving kindness on them. So you know, wishing them well, essentially. So it's like mantra, but then there's a version of it where you, you take that feeling that you conjure for somebody else. And so I was using my mom last night, but then you take that feeling that you create within your body and you then direct it back toward yourself. And there's a this is some people probably find it tough directing it to themself in this moment. You know, he might have a bunch of sort of
just like you were nearly destroyed your relationship as soon as
it starts coming back to you like no, no, no, no.
Bad boy but but but the pivotal point for me last night was imagining yourself as a child. And and all children facking deserve love and kindness. And they're just so sweet. And so when you think about yourself as a child, it's, it's a powerful thing. Because you realise that it's before all the bullshit. Yeah, but now usually, you're naive, you're, you're just new to the world and you fucking don't know what's happening and you haven't gone through all these sort of things that are gonna give you back a trot. And
you're wearing your own Superman costume.
Exactly. And you can Yeah, you think about that. It's and it's so nice because, for me, I sort of it's it's closely connected to Bodie, what I think about as a child because I've sort of re experienced the the kid thing with him and so, and then I just put myself in those shoes. And it's a nice feeling like you can and so the in turn the metta meditation approaches to sort of harness those that energy and sort of directed on yourself and, and I can tell you right now you can really, really feel good about yourself and I was smiling a smiley. And so that's it. I mean, yeah.
You had a good for someone who had to sit down you had a great evening.
Oh yeah. And then I finished it off with deep house. It was fucking sick.
Did you say that Airbnb have banned parties globally?
Wow. I mean, fact we so I had an Airbnb for my bucks party. They did them and you weren't allowed to do that then but just parties in general, just z. So
this happened a week. So I was googling it. When you were talking about when we said about the house, like house music. I then sort of went to what was the house music or what's the music that you listen to? Deep House Deep House? Yeah, I was thinking, Oh, that would be something you'd listen to it at a party and then I remembered about Airbnb. This is from a week ago. This is on their website. today. We're announcing a global ban on all parties and events at Airbnb listings including a cap on an occupancy at 16 this party ban applies to all future bookings on Airbnb and will remain in effect indefinitely until further notice.
Wow, I mean
it's it's I didn't actually think about Airbnb is like when you think about Airbnb you always think how you can have a party by guests like, you know, because there's a big issue in LA and stuff at the moment is it's like fucking gronk hiring expensive houses and having huge parties.
And they bend and let me just say ban banning parties in the Hollywood Hills like this is this is not even Airbnb at this point. On Wednesday, May Eric authorise the city to shut off utilities to Hollywood Hills High honour different anyway A while ago, they did. And so anyway, was it in response to covid stuff None of this was a little while ago but man it's
wonder what so New York occupancy levels are like crazy low at the moment with like people leaving and all of that sort of thing. Yeah, I saw a an article where Yelp is reporting that close to 50% of the businesses there on Yelp have closed down have shut down. Like forever lately. Yeah, it could like, shut down, which is pretty crazy. There's an interesting article by James altucher which they love James altucher.
Yeah, quirky is dude. Yeah, the he's literally he's literally built heaps of wealth and gone bankrupt three times.
He's literally built it up, lost it all built for that lost it all builder ridiculous.
And so it's so the New York Post. The article is New York City is dead forever. Dead forever. Here's why. And then Jerry Seinfeld came out saying you're full of shit. And there's a bit of a feud going on now because James altucher is like mate, you've got your mansion in the Hamptons or whatever Of course you're gonna say this you're not connected with the actual realities of what's happening in New York.
Yeah, I almost like James out the chat like I feel he's I feel like he's more closer to planet earth and you
want to see in grit to it like when I remember saying I respect these here by the way, like a fucking like, I feel like I couldn't get around
that. Do you remember young Einstein them feel Yeah, he gets like, electrocuted and he goes real fucking high. Right. That's it. That's Delta jet. Love it. Love to have James on the podcast.
Yeah. It seems like a really interesting too. Yeah, but it is interesting seeing that there seems to be this contrasting thing which I understand it's sort of like, New Yorkers were tough have gone through 911 all these things. It's all going to be fine. It's been overblown. like to know this is this is bad. Yeah. We try to feel my perspective is with everything. If, if this was a normal case, if this was just us, I wonder if, say for instance, this wasn't the pandemic wasn't in Australia at all. I wonder what our new cycle wouldn't look like. Like if we weren't so at the moment, it's all about Victoria, it's about us. But if we removed us I wonder what the next thing is that would be thinking about at side of COVID No, so like, even so say if we, if Victoria didn't have the the numbers and all the fuck ups here are Yeah, I wonder where the interest point would be. Would it be in what's happening in New York or these bigger cities or
Yeah, I think um, I feel like people in Sydney are sort of it's there's not anyone in Sydney as much what Amy's best friends are all up in Sydney and so yeah, yeah, there's no it's not mandatory masks. It's like even yesterday we're speaking to our accountant who's up in Brisbane. And I mean sure is in quarantine because he's had to, he's moved up there for to be with his family in the last couple of weeks. But it's, it's a different vibe in these places. Like I mean, that's why Yeah, sometimes you can feel like EDS, the whole of Australia by stone, being in Victorian the feeling of it. But yeah,
you're right. And that's not accounting that's moved. That's the other thing that works with us. Yeah. Sometimes brother. Yeah, you wouldn't be hot accountants not in Melbourne used to a Melbourne Yeah. Yep. Still
talking I mean, walking distance Know, the my brother had Tyler's also a hot accountant by the
way. We don't hire we don't hire accountants based on logs, but it looks like we
just that whole time anyhow, my brother interviewed a guy for his podcasts, none of my business. It's probably in Antarctica. Other artica doing the worst guy leaving Antarctica and Antarctica, Antarctica is having us arctica isn't gonna say oh yeah, maybe it is anti QA. They say the word that I can't say. Antarctica. No, that's

COVID in Antarctica, seriously, dude, it's like they've kept them on the island. And the island is an island. they've kept him on it. He was meant to come home last year. And they've kept him there. Based on he do. They just like cannot he just looked after one of the stations. It seems
like he's still still spinning tracks.
I don't know exactly what he does, but you'll find out.

Yeah, yeah, we're bringing this to this
it's funny, but I mean, when you when mentioned what it feels like to be at a place with it is so far for many fucking COVID like they're very worried about it. because
it'd be a nightmare if something happened there, right.
How would you even know where you Find it or
find the bomb
in the bomb,
so none of my business
is none of my business is the podcast.
Also that episodes not out yet though. When does it come out?
I think in a week or so,
yeah, one trick Tony. She's got a latest episode out. What do you what do you call it? So she put on Instagram her sort of getting her Duna and flicking it. So it was towards her boyfriend was doing it sort of getting the the donor prepared in the evening. What do you call that?
I saw this post. And I do this most days trying to make the bed. I couldn't tell you what I was thinking like, puffing up my dooner or thinking, puffing up my doing. I couldn't think of a word that made sense because I'd never even thought I'm just doing that action. I'm just gonna make debate. That's usually what you say. What is what?
Well, should I reveal it now? Or should people listen to the to the episode?
Well, I haven't got to that point. So you're gonna ruin it for me like I when I was growing it,
go listen to Tony, on your favourite podcast app also give it a review as well if you can afford eight minutes in 1426 and so sounds nervous at the start. Hey going. Going the stock advice impression Yeah, he's just like, he's, he's not going well, you know?

be great. with me tonight, so maybe we could do monopoly ice cream. And yeah, metta meditation, like
Yeah, yeah into some deep house if you feel
like they pass whilst when I start to win monopoly Turn the music like it's got Yeah, monopoly music if I can turn it up so because we zoom yeah when Can he do it? I
reckon I reckon date house in the background while you're playing some monopoly would actually work
it would actually would be awesome Google Home should have a feature where you can sync up houses. So for instance, it like, listens on zoom and then matches everyone so they're listening to the same song at the same time. So you don't end up with some sort of weird you know, like, are you got music on? I can't hear you because music Yeah, just a thought. Well,
if you're spiralling, it's all good. It does it spiralling and being aware of the spiralling and almost just laughing as you're in it sometimes helps. And then sometimes it will definitely sometimes doesn't. But even if you are aware, it's the first step of fucking you can be you can have awareness and still be completely lacking witness because there's multiple layers of awareness at that point.
So it's Brian, so what I did the other night, it was so cool. So brain I would like to get to bed early. And so we decided to close the blinds, which we don't normally do once we close the blinds.
