It's the daily Talk Show Episode 872. And happy weekend banter. Georgie boy, Mr. 97
claps back to me,
baby man, thank you could be here me j Bay. This reminds me of when you just saying welcome back. It's like when I remember it was my birthday. My dad said Happy Birthday in the morning I said Happy birthday to you to
say that it's just
it's just like this. It's the same as when you're it's the taxi. Hi. Thanks yourself. Yeah, that's what I say. Yeah, but no, yeah, you're in an Uber. You're about to go on a plane. You're going somewhere exciting. The Uber driver says to enjoy your flight. Yeah, you too.
Is it a panic though? Like, I feel it's just we mirror the mirror. We mirror other people's behaviour? I mean, you and I mirror our hats.
Yeah. It's like if you're sitting next to somebody, you end up having similar body language. Whether you know it or not. Like, what do you guys think? What do you think you're mirroring like that? GB? Do you think you'd become more like Mr. 97? And in what way?
That was pretty suppose that was
Become Mr. 97? How?
You don't have to agree with you. Do you think? Did you think oh, no, sir. Do you think you're more like this? No. Seven?
Um, I don't think I'm just I'm just trying to think of any, any things that I've picked up. So I think I've picked up from TJ seek one second. Okay. I think I've got that from TJ and then I've got a I've got a bunch of words from you, Josh.
I feel like I'm Andy Lee episode title. It's like iterating. Like everything that like iterating.
And he said any of those words.
It's but George. Yeah, I'm just trying to figure out like one of one of actually, I think you guys like chalk and cheese. You're very opposite direction. Yeah.
I think we you pick up like the way that you talk to people like in Oregon in text. It's a lot for me, though. It's like mirroring the way that they they text and that sort of thing. So how would you normally text and then how are you texting when you're in the BIG MEDIA COMPANY i message are good.
And now actually, I reckon that's pretty much as you think, where
you're setting the tone of the beam, say, for example, like feet for you, Josh, like, I would do a lot more exclamation marks that I would for another friend like, so. If I was to take Han? I don't think we'd never do like exclamation marks or anything like that. Really? Yeah, I use exclamation marks a lot. And what I found is I've had to send a few serious emails over the last few days. And I've had to like cut back on the exclamation marks. And it's just it's Yeah, it's very hard because I'm like you want to be it's like when you having like a serious meeting? Are you doing all that sort of thing?
Falling into the same trap that
we've spoken about before. It's like how you it's like I end up just saying good things. Even if it's a serious you know, we're doing business my sorting shit out not happy with something, you know? Yeah, not happy at all.
It is like trick the translation of tone. And how you feel in an email is a tough one, right? Because you could be you know, too many full stops too many, too. For too formal. Yeah, really thought out. Like if you're getting something that looks rock solid, in its, you know, its layout. This person's drafted. I think I think you want like exclamation mark, first sentence. And then a full stop for the next sentence and then bring it back with an exclamation mark a few sentences down, but you can't do exclamation marks every single sentence because it looks a bit weird. I do a smiley faces.
Yeah, they're good. I like them. I love them well, so a lot of the time that I actually pick up in the client,
Well, it depends as to what emoji you like, I never actually insert an emoji. I will do colon, dash and then a bracket.
Sure. What I found what I find reads almost stern or like someone's taking it seriously is taking something seriously. Whereas if you you'd say
Something like a short short piece, comma, Josh full stop.
It's It's when you write it, that's how that's how you mentor sort of outliners. But when I read it back, I always feel like saying your name at the end. You wouldn't normally do that saying, the end as in when you're signing off an email. No. Okay, so you mean the Thank you, comma, Tommy? Full stop. Yeah, but it has to be a bit more than the Thank you. It's like some clarity on this comma, Tommy, Tommy. Yeah, I always read the comma is this pause and it's like, You fucked up he told me.
Like, it brings too much. It's, it looks, it looks fine. But just when I read that, I can't I can't send them to people. What if this video is so great, comment, Tommy. Now I would lead with Tommy, Tommy's video is so great. Yeah. So like, and that's how I would. That's how it said back to me when it's written like that. Whereas when you write it like that, this video is so great. Tommy, I'm just like, you know,
a bit like, yeah, yeah. What are you doing Josh? You do it when? windy, getting stern? Or? Maybe why also, like, the classic one is putting someone's and I've never done this. Just George, comma and go into it. Like it's always Hi, George. Hey, George. Like I'm never gonna do just to George unless Hi. Yeah, I do. Hi. I always love a high. And that's why they got the guy from base camp. They created hey.com and new mail server and mail service. Hey, it's because he started with all these emails with Hey, that is a go to what do you do? Hi. Hi, George. What do you what do you rock? I'm a Hey, hey, always.
I don't think of it like saying hi. I feel like my mom says hi. Like this a parent. Really? Hi. Hi, George. Hi, George. I pushed back on the hi cuz I'm sending emails. When was the last time?
Seriously? I mean yesterday.
Can you pull it up?
I'm pretty sure Mason tried to send an email. So I'm getting an error here. It's like the computer literally. It was like literally Yeah, my brain hanging I'm gonna go in throughout HubSpot and see how many emails actually has it. I do that it's not. Oh, yeah, hate Vol. One
is not you, George.
The sales team might not the post prod team. You'll find
the notes all my emails are just from Assad or anyway.
Well, there was that. What do you thinking of Asana? So we've started using Asana, which is we've tried. Well, shibang
dig, dig it. Anyone who is it? Okay. Yes.
So we're using Asana, which is like a to do app assigning things. Georgie boy, what do you think of Asana so far? What can we do? Right? It's great. I am I've actually just put in all my tasks for this afternoon. What I need to do good work. And for a little bit on Monday. I think it's great. Yeah, I'm still getting used to like,
I'm bad at like checking stuff off. So when I go back, and there's hope, like, okay, I put all my tasks that I needed to do.
Yeah, so I put in all my tasks that I needed to do, but some of them are like, long term stuff. Not even long term, like in a few weeks, like whenever I get around to it. Yeah. So the first one, I keep ticking off. And then the bottom like nine things just stay there. And it's annoying as and then I'll do another task. So I'm sorry, your inbox inbox. You can do the sort of we don't have to go into all this but you should be able to, to hide hide that stuff. So you're only saying the things yet nice. Can you put on your to do list? edit this be that it's very very
definitely won't check it so you won't take it out. So leave it in. It's still Hey, would you know thanks for listening. Do you know what's not boring? Today's episode of screenplay? Sunday with Hamish bike. Oh,
I'm waiting for the clap. Where's the clap?
Yeah, I thought you're gonna have
to do this.
I mean, it was a it was a big
task to follow from last week that the same not the same as follow.
Follow. Was it big shoes to follow? Yeah, big shoes to fill.
I love that.
Was anyone triggered?
I don't know, sir. So how do you think that it all went given the circumstances of last week's app?
Yeah, I think I think it was. It was a great app and
look, a few things got brought up that hadn't been brought up previously, in relation to what Jess contributed to last episode. She was asking me about this. So she was, she was like, Oh, you didn't tell me that you're pissed off that she was fumbling the cat, or whatever. I thought that was very obvious at the time. And so this was communicated in Episode Three, which you can go hear about, but I think I
experienced the whole Yeah, yeah. The Holly. Yeah. And so we we made sure that we had fun. I think we all did have fun. Yeah. JB, did you have fun? I think Josh asked. Josh asked if we were having fun, I think at least eight times. We
definitely had fun.
I think it was, I think it was fun. That wasn't fun to Can we get a Yeah, it was it was very, it was very fun. You should go and check it out.
It was a it was i'd spoken to Jess and she was triggered. Just putting it out there. Yeah. And I said, Can I bring that up on this episode? And she said, if you get me kicked off the Shire or won't be happy while she said. She said I can't believe you had an issue with me though. Hashtag trigger Cheever. She wrote this on slack. But I think it was good. I think the thing is that like, we can't be perfect all the time. And so it's okay, like it's okay to, to fuck up. And so she fucked up last week. And she came back strong this week. And it was all good.
I think it's all fine.
If you get it.
It's great. I just wanted to have a chat with you, Josh. Josh. Josh. I know that you're in travel. Josh. My job. It's
Josh. Yeah, no. Hi. I mean, speaking of fun last weekend, Grace and I used our clike it
we've mentioned it again this is
but this is this is great. I've actually I've actually got stuff to bring so
I wanted to we both made
plant pots. And then at the very end, Josh because you love them so much. I I made an attempt at a Dora dangle. Dora dango This is good. I want to say you dhara didn't go. Well. Okay, well. So before I show you, there are a couple things that you need to know. And it's very hard to find a YouTube video a full tutorial on how to make it. We use the last we using some sort of cup or some sort of glass. Well, so I scrapped the tutorial and winged it. And so what I've got here, that actually looks quite good. Is a class it's literally libel libel. Yeah, and it needs to be potentially if you want the dar dango vibe you could
glaze it. Well, is that what they meant? Yes. So Dora Dang. goes up well on Darrow dang goes they are known as a mud dumpling. And it's a Japanese method where they take clay and they use a bunch of like, glossy instruments to smooth them all out. So you get this perfect sphere. And that's what you want to create. Yeah, the problem is not having the right tools for the job. But I will show you this was Hang on. Here we go. So
Oh, this is the this is the holding. So you're holding up a pot that doesn't really have much depth to it. Just like yeah, it's not super deep. So like, it's, it's it's not as tall as my hand. So if you're putting like a plant in it's not a big plant. It's a it's made for my Devil's Ivy that's in the background. So I beauty about clay sculptures. Is that it looks like anyone can do it because the kids version and the adults version look very similar. Yeah. It looks like to call it and so it is is it dry now. So what's next dry? Yeah, yeah, so that's those are fully drying out they're not fully dry. Well that's they're pretty they feel pretty hard services just enjoys producing. Yeah great great records another two to three days and they need to be put in the sun to fully dry up but I mean it's pretty like you're not breaking it if you well it does sound you're not breaking Wow, it sounds pretty but if you put if you accidentally had Wow. So if you had water on it though, would that just go back to
like yeah, if you put Yeah, yeah, I reckon. Okay, but when you haven't, why not? So yeah, yeah, company in the oven, but you might as well just off got all of my destiny.
Yeah, you might as well just
Leave it outside in the sun Like today.
it'll dry out a bit a little bit more. That was fun.
When we had a Jess on yesterday, we're talking about romantic things that you can do dates, that type of thing. And I feel like GB
you would have remembered a few months ago. We're talking about romance. And it got you thinking about you and whether How romantic you are. JB, can you give us an update on what are you doing? To be romantic at the moment? And are you out of the dark hole that it sent you into? That you weren't romantic?
I should be doing more. I am. I haven't done.
What am I done? We go for a walk on the weekends.
I bought us curry the other night.
But I should be getting some. I should be getting some fancy of food. I reckon. So no real update from me, unfortunately. What do you think he kind of? I feel like the night he doesn't have to be fancy Can you don't have a diet over?
We need to dial in. So what is lucky? You know? Okay, so it's taking serve lucky or capacity example? Yeah. How would you make that romantic?
Oh, you just put a couple of candles on the floor. Put a movie on and have have your souvlaki, dribble IV. No, but
I think I'll we'll I'll do a date. Not for sure.
Could you go back to storage? This is around
you it was Hannah's birthday. And you got her? A six course dig astacio. And you got it from the place on in on Smith Street. And it took you hours. It was like a real process. You had a great time. So did Hannah. Great hurt great memory. Yeah. When was 2017
that was June.
I made for anniversary. We just it was a July. It was this financial year.
And so what could we do? Like I think that I do like my brain was listening to the romance episode. And it's a good Spark. It's a good way of resetting and thinking What are you doing? That's romantic. What can we do? And TJ what's what's up? What's the last romantic thing you've done? And what's something that you could do? That's romantic. Oh, I mean, yeah, Nothing.
Off to the grandparents. You know, that's, that's where I'm in poetry.
No, no, I was last week. I mean, I had the Friday night to ourselves. And we It was not Doubletree. It was it was it was salami, pizza, and marinara sauce.
And we were sitting around, there's just something nice about sitting around the table behind this little circular one. And we come sit down on the carpet, we got a nice couch, but we don't, you know, we don't want to shoot ourselves on the couch.
And so we sat down and it was really nice, just to do that. But I mean, that's just the little thing. If anything, the romantic thing these days is for me to take Bodhi out and maybe have some alone time. Yeah, sure. Is there a way of positioning it so it feels more romantic? Like I wonder if he could if because I think about this right where it's sci fi do the dishwasher. It could be considered romantic. But is it more romantic? When you communicate and say, Hey, I'm just gonna do the dishwasher because I know you like what I do the dishwasher. It's probably really annoying.
Every day every time you do it, yes.
Yeah. JB What do you get out?
I think you just do the dishwasher and just not mentioned every now and then. So what's the what's the small bit what's what's the small bit of romance then?
I think not mentioning it and then organising dinner. And
yeah, I think it's just doing stuff without asking i think is that is what they want. And so but what?
Jamie's some women, you need new podcast.
And so talking about what they want, do you think
is there so for instance, some of these things that we think about doing so for instance, the ordering food and just saying you know, don't worry about it.
I think how can you communicate it? So it goes from being this utility of just that you have ordered food to make it feel more romantic?
Yeah, well, that's the million dollar question, isn't it?
I think he had to order it. And then set up a nice candlelit table at home and say you can pick the movie, because this is not the food just the movie is the movie. Yeah, sure. Because I'm having Mexican, which is what I wanted.
Okay, now I saw I like that idea.
The problem is, like, whenever we do do movie nights and stuff, I fall asleep and that probably the biggest issue in our relationship is the fact that I fall asleep in every single thing that we watch together, so we don't actually have a show. We don't have I'm the same way I have really movie nights because I'm always falling asleep. What about like a line of code?
videos in automatic? Yeah. Share a line. So is that what I call it? TJ sharing a line.
And so yeah, anything else is sparking anything TJ anything that you could think of? The how you could be romantic how I could be romantic GB serves like let's get our fucking shit together. Yeah, I reckon I reckon it's this little things that shift that so. I don't think we have we're all looking to like, try you know, travel the food but no, no, I think that's it. I think it's
I think just fucking taking a bit more care of yourself a bit a bit of spritz on your on your neck, bit of Cologne. A lot of candle. Sit the ambience. Well, 97%. So we had a huge spike on screenplay Sunday, as we mentioned, and he was Tommy.
Tommy, jack wasn't sick. But sieves brushed his teeth specifically for that episode, which I think what's your current regime when it comes to brushing your teeth? I feel like I'm pretty good with brushing my teeth. There is just like, I love my garlic. And so that does
kind of love. Like, that's another thing as you brush your teeth a gallon. Not that was the that was when I brush my teeth. So if you're saying he said if you said I brushed my teeth for heimish and you already brush your teeth in the morning. You're probably not brushing enough.
Now what look, you if I'm going out that's usually a trigger to brush them. But were you nice? Oh,
yeah. So yeah, exactly. So it's usually once a day at the moment. Sure, if you go out. No, no, no, no, I always do it at nighttime, always. But he's really like, it'll miss it in the morning. Unless there's a trigger for tapping. Look, it's it's any contract working with us. You actually brush your teeth in the morning. So who
know. Josh, what about this for you? Easy to come up with suggestions for a father, son, father.
What about this? This is I had a moment the other day Bodie was just absolutely doing my scan in and I thought
maybe I just this way and cut together a video of just some some birdies highlights. Just him being great dude.
To prevent me from you know, assaulting the baby.
But what about many new creating a little montage with abreeza quickly, just a quick, just chuck it in. I mean, fun for us to watch back together, have a trip, he go have a holiday, right. And that way you guys could sit on the couch. So Bri, I've ordered us some food specific to that trip. And you don't even have to tell her. And then the food comes. It's in Italian. And that's it. And this shots of Italy, it's just this beautiful little montage, a lot, a lot. A lot you've got I mean, we all got the capabilities to do this well. So you could do baby edit for everyone if we
re play style. So it's another Hump Day replay travel edition can be fun. Well, I mean, yeah, one of the things that I get criticised of is I've never made a video for hand before. And I've made him for like most of my family members for their birthdays and stuff.
So that's definitely on the list for me to do. And, and the other thing is, I think just buying flowers randomly. That's something that I should I should do. Because we go to the shops. They've always got the new flowers there on a Saturday. If we go there Saturday morning.
Then she's looking at the flowers.
And then like, why don't you buy me flowers. I said, Well, I can't do it. Now.
Because now it looks like of you know, just doing it. He said that. Yeah. Which is could that not be a romantic thing to do or no?
Maybe? Maybe where does it go?
What? So medicine go? I got it starts with that. And then before you know you having to buy flowers all the time. Is that what you're worried about? No, no, no. I was just curious about the scenario of Yeah, of being next to the flower shop looking at flowers. You'd never buy me flowers. And so what I buy me flowers and then Georgia. Well, I can't do it. In Georgia. Well, I can't do it now. Is it just okay?
Yeah, so you're being triggered? You're being triggered? Because she's asking. Whereas if you could just riff we all get
doing it? Yeah. It's just about doing it without having to ask. And so if you do it, after they ask, then it's not a great look. And so what could you do? Like, what's that? How do you? Because the problem is, um, but you need to do it beforehand, mentioned it before? She says, Yeah, beautiful flowers. Don't now, go pick them. Walk around your home didn't work. And they'll be flowers. Or that'd be good. That'd be lovely. You're gonna do that today? Yeah, I did that. I that I, although, again, then I'm like, all the new flowers are coming in tomorrow morning. So I'm getting the ship back now. And I think the ship bunch is fine. I think like, it is not about the quality of the flower. It's about actually doing ship early ship often.
And, you know,
good day. Now. Is it the same thing, if I'm only doing this content, but I'm not?
Anyone? Yeah, totally it romantic boys. Yeah. And so service. Have you had any reflection from yesterday's episode on what you could be doing?
I don't know. It's not. That's no.
No, actually. So we, we have actually talked about some things that we can do after lockdown. And so one of them is going to the IMAX Theatre in the city. And watching Tennant by Christopher Nolan in the film projector
we're now well, you know, you know, old you know, old film where they run it through. So just at the IMAX five mil, yeah, no, well,
it's 7070 millimetre film that they run through. And it's crazy. It's like 100 and something kg for the whatever. But it's sick, but so they're running. They're gonna play tennis on that seven. So we're gonna go say that. It's a weed how you said it, but you went it's sort of like it looked at driving and like, you know, driving car with like, wheels.
Yeah, what do you call it on film? Like, what do you film? j?
Automator. Yep, yep. simelane made a film. Okay.
So he's great said that. She's excited to see Christopher Nolan movies. Yeah, she loves film over digital.
No, I push to that. Okay. So that probably doesn't know basic, but it's a great experience. Because it's like, you know, it's coming out at like, 17 Katie's got like a 28. Speaker set like it's going to be great. Yeah, that would be good. I'm, I'm pumped for that movie. A secret agent embarks on a dangerous time bending mission to prevent the start of World War Three. God to live transcribe.
that that does sound good. All right. The other thing else? Anything else going on? TJ?
Ah, no. That's about it, man. It's about you like my sauna? I check my son is there what's happening? I'm gonna go check out the war shoes for
Yes, she's a young army yet with Yes. Well, yes. I was saying yes. Everything she was looking at you mirroring. Yeah, mirroring of Josh Jansen. Is anyone around him will stop him apart. Yeah, everything. I think it's Yes. Yes.
Okay, go listen to screenplay Sunday. Also, Hump Day replay was great. with Ryan Shelton. You got radio mic on on the next episode, which is great. Next week. Yeah. Perfect. All right. Well, enjoy Sunday guys, and we'll see you tomorrow. Have a good one.
