What is happening? What's going on? Happy Hump Day. gronk. Happy Wednesday.
You're Yeah, you're in the office.
Yes. Are you? Where are you from?
I'm from home. We burying the lede about you being
I thought you were a fucking police officer. That's always just wanting to understand what establishment what a Hollywood office or I mean, my home office.
You've been moving and stuff NBN is getting installed today. That's exciting night.
Yeah, I had the nicest conversation. You know, when you speak to somebody and you just can you just know they're a good person. I had that. I had that moment with the bloke from NBN Luke and the technician though. trainees I don't know. There's just there's something about I've met some brilliant trainees in my time. That the one thing trainees know He's banter. You know, just been in this bit of that just a bit and we love banter this show. So happy with it, he made me feel a bit better. I feel like today, you know, there's some days where you just get like that, you know, you should write a list. And it feels like you very hyperactive and you've got too many things that you should be looking at and then you just get distracted. You're like looking over there are going to look over here. Look over there. And so I felt a bit like that.
Have you written the list?
I wrote the list, but that didn't really help. It was Luke Lucas. From NBA he helped me. Did he
really help? How did he help you?
No, I think I think knowing that I'm having internet connection connected to my property. It made me feel good. So that's what it's come down to it's, I really base my happiness on my internet connection. I do. I yeah, I get it. I get it now.
Thanks, Josh. But I feel the I feel the same thing. I think Bree does Tara I spoke to her just before we were recording this episode later than normal. Normally we do it in the morning. It's Yeah, nearly 12:30pm and you're speaking to brain she was saying that she was feeling fired up because she had gotten a bunch of things done taking stuff off. And I felt that to where I had you know, we're working on a customer relationship management system and I'm fucking setting up deals. I'm moving should a class and I'm running out I've got my second brain going and I'm writing down everything that I need to do. Feel, right. I
mean, there's nothing worse than when you don't feel like that. You hear someone talk about how good they're feeling
about it. Yeah. Have you done your personal tax return
yet? No, the accountants future advisory looking after that. It's gonna be down to we need to tell them something until show. I mean, we could probably just Yeah, get on to them. But it's, most of the elements are done. I think we just got a hand over what we all that money. We've blown on things outside of business and what we want to claim so it is asking in the YouTube chat what CRM we're using. Well HubSpot is the CRM that we're using BK. thoughts, feelings questions?
So far I like it. I like the I was always the guy that like to track things. And so the fact that I can say when people open emails is a real hoot,
dude, I've been getting around that. Have you set up the notification on your phone?
on it goes I'd love a notification like that.
I don't I mean, it's another app you have to download, but it will prompt you when someone has, you know, opened your email. Okay, it makes you a bit needy though. Like I feel like I've sent an email to the current real estate agents. Yeah, we need the the shower pressure, no good in one of the bedrooms. Probably an easy fix by a plumber. I sent him an email and MTG No, I tracked it. I didn't log it. So he's not in our CRM, but I at least tracked it so I could see if he's opened it. The thing is, you build a story around. I mean, I've already done it before. I've never met this real estate agent. And I have a great story about a story empathetic ease, which is probably no good is probably a great bike. But look, I've you know, you get burned once you get burned twice, you get burned three, four times by real estate agents,
then four degree burns. I mean, what when they talk about degrees, so third degree burn, what does that mean? But is there a fourth degree burn?
I think it's the severity of the burn to the skin. Like it's like,
Yeah, it's definitely fourth degree. Can you look that up for me? Please foster
grey. Okay. Yeah. I mean,
the grey you're just in a better position to sort of Google these. Yeah, yes, sir.
All right. A fourth degree burn additionally involves injuries to deeper tissues such as muscle tendon, tendons or bones. The bone is often black and frequently leads to loss of the burn part. burns in general generally preventable. Okay, man.
We got it going on.
Yeah, breaking your arm on escape or don't go on the skateboard.
We get it. Like the doctor that, you know, telling us we're having too much UberEATS not here for that.
have been watching myself.
I've been Lighting a candle in my home office. Do you think that at what size business? Do you get to a point when no candles are allowed that from an O h&s perspective, you just can't have every gronk within the business Lighting a candle at their desk?
Well, I mean, I used to work for a big advertising agency at the front front counter. And she also had a side hustle which was a candle business and like, you know, any good front counter person they They get themselves on as a supplier of candles. And so that business was funded funding her lavish lifestyle. No, but she, as a candle seller, she would have insurance and the business that business specifically would like them all around the office. And so they would burn through them quite quickly. But there was, you know, there could have been like five or 10 candles going at once and a big
company has insurance.
Amy's Candle Company has insurance. Sorry. Yes. So it's just like any inch, like a fitness person should have insurance to cover the clients. Amy has a monthly fee that covers like damages for a gronk who burns down their home office.
So does that mean that with every candle, I'm buying insurance?
Well, I don't know. I would think that the camera you're buying because they're expensive the company would do Have some kind of insurance connected to them? Because what if, if there was somehow, like one of the batches was flammable and it just sparked up? You would think that that's there's liability on the half of the candle company.
I mean, sorry, the hack there, then don't get home contents insurance. Just a lot of cameras just have candles everywhere. Is that true? That doesn't sound right.
Yeah, but it has to be specifically relating to the candle and the candle do
loads. Like I don't think that it's
not just you lighting your curtain on fire. It's issues where they could be liable based on an issue. He can't it's like, he can't
get insurance or whatever. Yeah, but I just wonder what it would what it would count. I was getting annoyed because I yesterday I was trying to light it to get to a point where it was covering the whole candle. So all of the the wax was sort of melted and so yeah was waiting longer and longer and longer. And that never happened. And so I've burnt into a bunch of it. I know. But do you have any tips as well? It's been over candlemaker
Yay, there's one fix for that. I'll get to it. But I will bring the blame back to you. Have you cut the week? Yes. Did you see it burn all the way to the edges on your first burn.
This is what I'm talking about.
First first, this is first burn the first the very
first burn. It didn't go to the edges and I was fucking waiting. It was like four hours based on why have you got the candle? I'm like, I'm waiting for two to reach the edge.
Now, I mean, so what we can do is an insurance scam. Yeah, and
maybe take a photo and say Hey guys,
this is you definitely could if you want to be in that kind of a person. Or I could just drop over a blowtorch and you can blow torch the outsides and it will melt it all to a flat surface that's like it's maybe the blowtorches watch you You want to fly by a blowtorch? Yeah, don't buy an industrial one that you don't need the big one I know you want the Big Bertha,
but just want one I could do with like GM foods like eggplant and stuff, you know, give it a little
well. Yeah, I mean you just remember les size vine. But then again you could probably get the big one for that. You get a big one. I've decided to get a huge get a huge blowtorch. Once we we got blown up we're gonna blow torch out to get the coals going for a spit. A lamb spit sorry BK. Yeah, we had to get that it's a great, great thing for that. Just get this get it going down the bottom. Instant get it going,
man. So now that you're in the bigger place, what have you What have you What are your plans in regards to some of these? What like so to speak? You could definitely do our adult outdoors. Yeah, your space. What are you thinking?
I was chatting with my neighbour. I not I'll never
Have you met the new neighbours?
Yeah. Well, they're very old. And so I've had a bit of banter with the son who is probably my dad's age,
how what's the property size reckon they'll sell eventually swells to happy.
deceased estate. It was Ted's document. Yeah. When that's
the because there's a goal there. Why don't you just go in as you can I just actually have bigs lounge space. Just make sure and
where if where I grew up, where I grew up in, in Brighton, there was a house that was sort of a bit bit old and rundown. And I heard the story that a older woman was in that house, and she became friendly with somebody who would look after the property and they became good mates, and he inherited the house. She had no one else. And so she handed over. Which, I mean, now the block would be, you know, two 3 million back then it was probably, you know, four $400,000. Yeah, imagine that. I when I heard that I was like, trying to get in with the old lady down the road. It's making a lot of
old mates. Yeah, man. And so the moving what was what was your biggest challenge with the move?
The biggest challenge is always the exit claim. But I tell you what there is there's nothing like moving to realise your connection or just your, your feelings towards material things. And so you realise how much stuff you have. It's quite clear, but then you realise what you know, like the moments where you're thinking about do I get rid of this So, is this broken? Or like, for instance, I know I almost didn't wanna bring it up because I know what your advice would be. We bought a new couch under the advice of Josh Johnson and Bree and happy with the purchase. Absolutely. It's a great catch. It's the most expensive catch I've bought. And you know, it's only up from here guys. It was like 900 bucks or something. It's still pretty cheap for a couch, don't you think? One that's what I'm saying. Like the other catches I bought a 200 on bloody you know, eBay or something. But this is like it still feels to jump there. Whatever dumpster. Yeah, exactly. I feel like we've lashed out we've sort of we've, you know, spent big bad. We haven't spent big in the term of, you know, $7,000 Sure. We've got a good high quality couch for a cheap price. I think, I feel anyway, we got the removalists who were two hours later. To our property, and then they put the couch into the lounge room. And I noticed something. I was like, What is that? I haven't seen that before. It has. There's obviously something so this is the story. Some it has been, there's a part on the arm that has been squashed and it's broken in a bit. It doesn't. It's not like,
almost like you like it's like a foam. It's like a memory sort of foam sort of thing. Yes, yes.
And it's pushed in and dented it and it can't pop it out. And it's and it's noticeable. But then you put the cushion up against and it's kind of noticeable, but I've just been, I felt in that moment. I'm just looking to blame. I'm feeling funny in my guts about this material object. Oh, and the other thing is like moving, putting shit into my car. We get to here Sunday, and I scratched a bit of the plastic on the door and like My asshole clenched you know, it's like, you just you realise how you connect so closely to these material things when they don't mean anything. And so but but you give it all the meaning in the world and so the couches arm in the, you know in the fucking the car's plastic. Yeah, I mean if I had a Tesla like BK I would have fucking gone mad. Yeah.
Yeah I mean great Bri is onto this stuff like the standard that Bray runs when it comes to this like we've we've repainted a whole wall without the apartment we rent because there was a really when when there was a This was um Why wasn't I home? I don't know like I think it was when we were in painting gallery yeah yeah I was just like you can do it but just don't do it while I'm here. So there was there was a mark on the wall and break contacted the landlord about it and said Hey guys, just so you know when this On these setting, it hits this patch and there's like a little sort of scuff on it right? And so anyway, they came and they painted it. And then once it dried Bree looked at it's like, still there and so she then sanded it but Brie them without the landlord even being cross it, got the paint sample, bought more paint moves all of the furniture got a dad to come over. They sanded the whole thing down and did it again. like wow, there's we have you know, the apartment block and make whistling sounds with the the wind. Yeah, and so yeah, we exactly and so we got installed a like a flap that goes under the door. right the the rubber leaves a little mark on the the wooden floorboards and so Brady's been like taking photos and so these types of things if the couch if that happened to us with the couch, the couch would be done. And we did have an If you remember when we moved a while back probably two years ago before we actually went overseas, the fridge was dented. And there was a little dent and so the insurance company of the removalists it went through them and we got a brand new fridge and if you remember, yeah,
not maybe, maybe you told me that. So here's the thing. I the guys who were moving our place, they rocked up. And I mean, traditionally, you the experience with removalists are travellers like I've had English guys Scottish guys, these dudes were from Colombia, had a great accent. I was just they seemed fucking exhausted. They had bloodshot red eyes, like they just, they'd obviously worked overtime on the last job. And then they get two hours and then just like oh, I just could feel how that was so lovely though that was so friendly. And I was just like,
normally, the she's just ones are really friendly, you know, because the personality perspective.
I mean, if you're labelling someone who's removalist she'd based on them breaking something, I get it. But I mean,
the fact that you just want them to care.
I felt like they kind of cared. I think it was probably an easy thing. Like it could have just been foot stepped on it or something like it's, it was. Yeah, because they put it like it was on its side up in the, you know, like, it wasn't flat. It was like up on its side on a rug. We could easily see how you could just step on the arm of the chair on the couch based on it being upright. And so there was a moment where I felt, I mean, it's bad to say but I felt kind of good based on how shoot I felt like I was always
seen. Did I know what happened?
No, no, this isn't even relating.
Just because how exhausted they were.
I just felt like this year because I wasn't feeling great. I was feeling really anxious. And I was like, fuck man, people. There's other people having really shitty days too. So it's a real shame days. Oh, yeah. Yeah. But sometimes you can feel guilty about empathy when it's relating to somebody who's knowingness. You know, who's your most saying? You're getting perspective right? Me Like, for more fog, I wouldn't want to be doing what they're doing right now. And I look tired as fuck and look like they wanted to pay here. Like, I felt the pain that they are in. I recognise my pain thought. Okay, now this is I just gave me some perspective at the moment.
And so you've got a kid. And so this shit like he can't be married to things staying good when you've got a kid. Because if it's not the removalist, Bodie will shit on us or we'll see, you know, chocolate or something. You know, like you can't you can't be married to these things. But it The,
the the grappling with the emotion is real. And so Brady's grappling with the emotion of that scuff on the wall, and obviously feeling it. And so we're all feeling these things. I think that's the human experience. Like, unless you just array you literally have no positions and you give zero fucks about anything that you you know, any position that you have. Maybe you've dropped that. But I think the more normal human experience is the one that breeds feeling and that I was feeling.
What's nice to look after you things. I feel like sometimes you'll meet someone and they're super wealthy, and they just don't care about this shit. And it's just messy. And it's like, what's the point? The point involves nice stuff, I guess that they're a bit detached. Maybe.
Yeah, maybe. I mean, one way of being like, I don't think the equation is have heaps of money, give zero fucks about your Ferrari. I think there's probably people who have heaps of money. And then feel the exact same thing and don't drive it match in the fact that I got in the garage I just like having in the garage
door How often do you wash your car?
Oh, once a year it's I bought the colour because it's such a great like it's a high on middle Oh like a like a Bluey grey sick and so it's um it's yeah it hides it it's not a black car that's getting you know real dirty
my dad would make mum park the SS far away from any other cars and away from like he couldn't have you basically imagine like a map of a car park at the shopping centre and it's got like a radius around you know trolley bays any trolley Bay can be close to a trolley Bay can't be you know parked next to cars in general prefer to walk like walk longer. Don't get a Yeah, didn't.
Well I think there's going all in on your piece of shit and So when you do have a car you give zero fucks about how you got there. Usually it's based on just over time things happening to me like on. Yep, this is a piece of shit and then it forms an identity, or that's my piece of shit. Well think
about I'm always worried about the people like if there's someone that's like entering into an intersection when they shouldn't like I back off if I've say if I say that I've got fucking dents in the car. I'm like, this guy's a man. Yeah, there's no Definitely,
yeah. Well, the word on the street in Berlin is cold, which is on Manningham road, I think, which is, yeah, it's just this big car park. And there's a lot of oldies in Blaine. And the young uns one guy told me like a bloke said, might Park up the back. Those fucking people they will scratch your car down close to the I've danced with the devil. I parked down close every time. I didn't listen to a young kid and I haven't got it done yet. But
Rest when I think about car parks this will be restaurants and car parks isn't there? Well
yeah because he I mean they can be putting hundreds of people indoors now so they're looking at I did say something this morning it's the the car park company's looking at giving or renting carpark space that probably get money off the government's to then have pop up restaurants think about all the car parks in in Melbourne CBD that aren't full and they're the ones that was stinging people for $95 for a day I'm sure they've got money I'm sure they're doing a rod but right
imagine like yeah, roof tomahawks wouldn't be great if you're sort of middle level indoor you wouldn't be it wouldn't be great if you me
now. I think I think there's, you know, no cars there. There wouldn't be putting cars in this just area for be out being able to distance people I think I was thinking about I was like The Melbourne CBD is sick there is lots of cool car parks Yeah, and there's a car park we filmed a the art maybe RMIT University in the old Melbourne jail there's a sick car park I think. Yeah in Carlton there's an underground one that has if actually I'm gonna look this up there was a famous film famous movie filmed in Carlton car park filmed in Carlton Coppock. It was either this or that it was made famous by the film but also by my stripping company that filmed the promo video down there.
Have you got a copy? I'd love to say
I actually I don't know if I do. I don't know if I do. Anyway, I'll find this but there was some big big film that was shot underground. That's cool. University of Melbourne. Gothic like arches are Yes. So it's got like these Gothic like arches
close to Melbourne jam right No, no,
no, I wish I could show you this photo. But it's 1970s it was made that specialised space and only under exceptional circumstance. circumstances it may be used for filming projects. I have no idea how he got it. But we did.
And it's sick. What do you think the first if you got on the list any places that you want to go to once were allowed to?
Um, what was I thinking about? Like, night just out for dinner?
To be honest. Anyway, Mexican Cantina would be good. What about if we can be fun, but I wonder if food Sorry. I'm Mexican Cantina is my favourite Mexican restaurant there in nary Warren.
Yeah, I will. I will say the nostalgia is 80% of it for you because the food the food it's good, mate. Are you gonna tell me that's top into Mexican? No, no, but it's not meant to be top end. It's like
