Tommy Jackett: [00:00:00] It's the daily
Josh Janssen: [00:00:04] talk show episode 887.
Tommy Jackett: [00:00:07] What is happening? So let's go in on
Josh Janssen: [00:00:11] coming Jack at welcome back.
Tommy Jackett: [00:00:13] Thanks buddy. Thank
Josh Janssen: [00:00:15] you. Uh, how, how are you feeling? How was your break?
Tommy Jackett: [00:00:18] Yay. Good. Just I'm just tucked into some porridge, had a, had a bit of a French press coffee, not a French press. Eh, what are they called?
A plunger coffee.
Josh Janssen: [00:00:28] Oh yeah. No, I think that's French press now.
Tommy Jackett: [00:00:30] Is it French press? Yeah. So I'm feeling good up in the bat, back into it had had, um, for, I mean, it's, it's really only two work days off, but I haven't, I didn't use social media from Friday. Like I made it a habit. I made it a rule that I wouldn't open Facebook or Instagram and from my phone or my computer, but God, you realize how much of a junkie you are when you just like you've blacked out and all of a sudden you've tapped.
Josh Janssen: [00:01:00] well, you know, like
Tommy Jackett: [00:01:02] I literally found a moment where. I, well, this is, this should be, this should be fair game. I swipe up and I type in, I N for my ING account when I want to check some cash and I just, by habit pressed and it went on to Instagram and I was like,
Josh Janssen: [00:01:20] Oh no,
Tommy Jackett: [00:01:21] So, yeah, I mean, that only happened once on the first day and then I think yesterday, but yeah, it was good.
I missed a few things though, whilst a few things.
Josh Janssen: [00:01:31] Um, Instagram, it reminds me, um, over the weekend I was noticing, I wonder if this is really specific, whether they, they do this on purpose, but when you switch different accounts, if you've got different occasions, I've noticed that it opens up different areas depending on.
What account it is. So for instance, when I go to my Josh Janssen, I always end up landing in my dams. But when I go to the daily talk show, it goes into the feed and I was like, Oh, maybe it's cause I've got unread messages, but the daily talk show at some too,
Tommy Jackett: [00:02:08] is it straight? You reckon it's just random or they're
Josh Janssen: [00:02:10] setting up, maybe they, maybe they know because you know, like when you feel a little bit, uh, uh, triggered on, uh, like.
If it goes into the feeds through it, like, Oh fuck that, that content or whatever. Like, I feel like he's thinking about what I'm thinking about. Maybe I've done that.
Tommy Jackett: [00:02:28] No, no, no, no, no, but maybe, maybe they have a B test and Josh Janssen will spend more time, even
Josh Janssen: [00:02:36] if he goes to DMS first.
Tommy Jackett: [00:02:38] Yeah. Yeah, they want, that's what they want.
They want the time in app. So
Josh Janssen: [00:02:42] what did you do Thursday and Friday? Talk us through your day
Tommy Jackett: [00:02:46] Thursday. It was just, I'm trying to unwind. Do you realize how, um, how, I mean it's the first time off the show in. Two years, two and a bit years, but first real holiday I've taken as you identified. I have four years.
I knew I crewed. Um, no, but you realize how you're trying to optimize every minute, like usually in a day, like, okay, how much can I fucking cram into this bad boy? Like, what can I get done? I need this done by this time. Then, you know, it's like, you're trying to calendarize by a time, you know, putting in times for everything, you just realized that when you don't need to do that, That becomes the challenge.
So the challenge before, yeah. It's like optimization and what's the opposite of optimization. I think it's like you could say is like being lazy or you can proceed as like careless, but then that takes as much effort. Hmm. So the opposite takes as much effort as it does to actually try and optimize. So it's like trying to do sweeter fate.
And I mean, that was, that was Thursday by Friday,
Josh Janssen: [00:03:52] Thursday. Was it just sort of twiddling your thumbs thinking about things? We
Tommy Jackett: [00:03:56] went for a bit of a drive. She coffees it's a little walk. It didn't do much Friday though. Uh, you know, I've been talking about needing to get a shed for our backyard. Well, the shed is up.
The shed has been done
Josh Janssen: [00:04:12] and it was
Tommy Jackett: [00:04:13] the shed nearly broken.
Josh Janssen: [00:04:17] Yeah. What's nice about the shed
Tommy Jackett: [00:04:19] you get, you think buying from a business called easy shed. You think it's going to be, you know, it's in the name? My God. So. Mild man
Josh Janssen: [00:04:29] them, they just drop it off.
Tommy Jackett: [00:04:33] You know, like life throws challenges and also life throws you 2200 millimeter sheeting of metal.
When now were meant to give you an 1800 millimeter shading of metal shot. So they'd packed the wrong piece of metal for one of the sections, which was like, If,
Josh Janssen: [00:04:51] if this wall doesn't fit, why doesn't this wall fit?
Tommy Jackett: [00:04:56] Well, we laid it all out and we're like, okay. Now they've clearly given us the wrong one, clear, like it's back and forth.
We had to end up using a grinder to cut this piece of metal. I was trying to call easy shit, but I did it with me, dad and my bro and, and we, and I sit, I said to my dad, mate, there's been a few family falling outs over those sheds. I tell you what, like, just think about doing flat
Josh Janssen: [00:05:23] pack with your friends.
Yeah. That's not great.
Tommy Jackett: [00:05:26] That is testing times.
Josh Janssen: [00:05:28] And so how does it look now? Is it all last week?
Tommy Jackett: [00:05:31] It's sequence I'd sleep is like we, because our backyard's got a bit of a slope, it looks like it's full legit. My daddy's at my dad's at landscape he's he's he's done more. Um, He's done. He's done more meter meter lengths of retaining walls, and you have done steps in your life and maybe together he's laid a few retaining walls.
Anyway, it looks amazing. And it's it say, and we're putting it on it. It gets to 4:50 PM and it's starting to rain and the roof is going on and is, but I'll tell you what my
Josh Janssen: [00:06:04] Oh, that was your day off. That was Friday.
Tommy Jackett: [00:06:06] Yeah, I did. I, I, I approached it like I was exercising, like, this is my exercise. 10:00 AM at 5:00 PM.
Josh Janssen: [00:06:18] It's a full day.
Tommy Jackett: [00:06:20] I enjoyed it. Like I it's nice. I didn't, I wasn't checking my social media. I was just like my dad and I just doing, you know, in the backyard, it's kind of an icon kind of like, it's like, it's almost, I mean, the meditation stuff I'm doing, it's like they really trying to. Um, prevent the approach of this distinction between, uh, you know, um, formal meditation.
And then every other moment of your life. And it's trying to say that you don't need the formal practice for it to be meditation, so you can take anything. And one of the cool things is like, um, a bit of a habit is like transitioning between tasks. So you get up from your computer to go to the toilet or you get up the computer, go to your drink.
Psych you use that moment to focus on. The actional, the movement, or just like have it as a trigger point to become a bit more mindful. And so I was trying to like, in the moment, you know, I just like the tea, it's very task focused. You're holding and showing them like, just,
Josh Janssen: [00:07:24] it was all just in getting to the zone.
Tommy Jackett: [00:07:26] Yeah. And they goes eight hours. Were you planning to
Josh Janssen: [00:07:28] take, did your dad bring like a tradie, um, a speaker system? So you could play gold FM or something?
Tommy Jackett: [00:07:35] No, no, we actually, I actually got at, um, I got out. I mean, I've never done this before. I've got it. I got at the speaker and I played Fleetwood Mac, thanks to the guy with the cranberry juice.
I'm just like, Oh man, he's another one. I
Josh Janssen: [00:07:47] know
Tommy Jackett: [00:07:49] daddy was like, yeah. He's like, yeah. You know, the guy from Bob, the crowded house, joint Fleetwood Mac. And I was
Josh Janssen: [00:07:55] like,
Tommy Jackett: [00:07:56] cause that's that conversation would stay with. Dad. You're not a music guy. Yeah. I am beach boys. Beach boys. Uh,
Josh Janssen: [00:08:07] Eagles. Yeah,
Tommy Jackett: [00:08:08] just really off the cassette tapes that would play on family
Josh Janssen: [00:08:12] holidays
Tommy Jackett: [00:08:13] when we drive in the car.
But no, that was good, but I tell you what mate. I've been fucked lots
Josh Janssen: [00:08:20] today,
Tommy Jackett: [00:08:21] just destroyed. I spoke to mum last night. Dad went to bed at six 30 last night. He's seven. He's nearly 70 mate. I'm fucking 32. And that destroyed me. I was so tired the next couple of days.
Josh Janssen: [00:08:37] And so it was so have you spoken to easy shared.
Tommy Jackett: [00:08:43] I tried to call them on the day. It wasn't easy to get through.
Josh Janssen: [00:08:48] And so, um, and so you, so you had to do the grinding, so it was, so was that the. Was most of the time trying to hack, hack it to work well,
Tommy Jackett: [00:08:58] yeah, I mean, we needed a new screw. Like I'm just thankful my dad has told and he's, and he's capable.
Cause if you put you and I.
Josh Janssen: [00:09:07] No, actually, we wouldn't even try. I wouldn't try you. And I,
Tommy Jackett: [00:09:11] it would be blow us apart.
Josh Janssen: [00:09:14] It
Tommy Jackett: [00:09:14] would be boxing. Yeah. Like kangaroos in the back yard by the end of it. But I mean, at that point, do you actually contact, what do I want from them? I've got photos. I want to share. I just wanted someone to say,
Josh Janssen: [00:09:24] well done that.
What's he going in the shed?
Tommy Jackett: [00:09:30] Right? We've already loaded up Bernie's bikes. Like. Oh baby. Claros just shit. That's like our house doesn't have heap of storage for stuff that would suit a garage. And so now we've just got like, um, Christmas tree holder, you know, like what else is in there? Just, it will be, there'll be a mower in there at some point.
Josh Janssen: [00:09:50] Did it feel like the labor that you put into it, the items that are going in, does it feel worth it?
Tommy Jackett: [00:09:57] Um, yeah, I mean, it's, it's nice to have we needed it. It's great. And the owners paid half, half of the
Josh Janssen: [00:10:04] cost, so great.
Tommy Jackett: [00:10:06] But I mean, um, I think easy sheds should pay the other half,
Josh Janssen: [00:10:10] to be honest, they should look okay.
Would you know that there was a mod job? Was there any mud, like, did it look like
Tommy Jackett: [00:10:16] it was, it was, it was completely fine
Josh Janssen: [00:10:19] or colors.
Tommy Jackett: [00:10:21] Well, we thought it was going to be another color too. That's a contentious point. It's a, it's called mist green and it really blends into the aesthetic of the backyard. The grass is like fencing.
Hoping we will. Yeah, we won't need a darker one. Like a more like a gun metal, gray or most, but this is way better. Okay. This is why, but, but I just felt like. That is the time it's like speaking of the meditation stuff is like, you could easy. I was on the phone and then it hung up, hung up on me. I'm like, this is not worth it.
Let's just keep pushing. Let's keep pushing.
Josh Janssen: [00:10:57] Well, my parents, um, uh, they're building a house at the moment, uh, Phillip Island and they, uh, they had a, uh, their garage door, wrong color.
Tommy Jackett: [00:11:07] Oh no.
Josh Janssen: [00:11:09] And the, and the front door also wrong color, but the front door looks good. But, uh, I was FaceTiming. Daddy said we're gonna make him change it anyway, just for the, I was like, surely just if it looks good.
Tommy Jackett: [00:11:22] If it looked
Josh Janssen: [00:11:22] nice. Just, just, if it looks good, just, just let it go. And he's like, no, the fuck they fucked the garage. They fucked the door. They've got to fix it. Well,
Tommy Jackett: [00:11:31] I mean, I mean, it's interchange, he's nine with yours and that sounds like it would be what you're doing now, but you're right. I like, I think it's, if it does look good, a discount,
Josh Janssen: [00:11:43] at least.
So I was saying, I think that he's like, he wants to. Set the precedent that, that, uh, no, this needs to be changed. And then he'll, um, he'll work it out, you know, like I think they'll keep the door, the door. It looks nice. Yeah. It seems to be a common thing. Uh, friends, uh, had, uh, we're building a house, uh, and, um, the architect showed what the color of the roof was going to look like.
And it was a completely different color, like a lot like a, um, uh, a dark gray. And then anyway, the roof ended up being this super light gray. And so they were obvious that like they were going for this whole sort of, it was in sort of regional Victoria and it was sort of meant to blend in with the landscape and then I could fucking stands out and, um, It was going to cost like 30 grand or something to replace it.
And so then the people who did the roof, they paint it. They, they said, Oh, we can just paint it. And it started to fucking flight.
Tommy Jackett: [00:12:49] Oh, no, it's not good. Like I do for these. Like if you're, if they're small business, like it can be the difference of making in a thing. And not my brother lived here. This is, I mean, it's like lived in a mansion in Flinders.
And so wasn't there as they hired, they rented it for a year and they had three of three other couples going on it and they lived down in Flinders, which was amazing. So we went. We used to go down there and it's this beautiful property, all like Manor mansion. They ended up selling it later on the people who owned it.
And this, this really rich guy bought it and renovated the whole thing. And my bro told me, as we're doing this project, he said, remember the mansion. Remember that huge driveway, like I'm talking probably 50 meters of row, like sort of winding down and then they concreted the whole thing and it was the wrong color.
Josh Janssen: [00:13:46] Oh no. Yeah. This is very common thing. Isn't it?
Tommy Jackett: [00:13:49] The guy kept it. The guy was like, fuck it too much.
Josh Janssen: [00:13:52] What would be term whole thing if I I'm, I'm the guy that if I get something wrong in an order, like if, um, if a restaurant brings an item, I'll just eat it. Yeah, but I was thinking I'm the guy who, I don't like modifications in any way regarding food.
So eat it as is, but I don't add things to like, so breeze bean, um, if we get hot chips, She'll just use our tomato sauce from home. I just can't bring myself to do it.
Tommy Jackett: [00:14:22] Hang on.
Josh Janssen: [00:14:27] eating at home, but seeing hot chips. And then, I mean, I'm more of an aioli guy. Anyway,
Tommy Jackett: [00:14:34] my mate used to carry his art. This is different, different sort of attribute. It was a taught us. He would bring a. A tomato sauce, like a full tomato sauce with him
Josh Janssen: [00:14:47] in his bag or something
Tommy Jackett: [00:14:48] in the car, in the bag. And just,
Josh Janssen: [00:14:52] yeah.
I mean, it's, um, it makes sense in some ways. Yeah. Um, but yeah, it's funny. The, um, how, uh, You can fill your time very quickly. Okay. I've even noticed that my obsession with, uh, getting CNN streaming, dr. K had mentioned Pluto TV, and then I discovered that Pluto TV was only showing me sort of highlight bits.
It wasn't showing me the stream. And so then I've been going down this rabbit hole of YouTube TV. And getting in. So you can VPN. So I've got like YouTube TV from the States and I'm using a VPN, but then it doesn't work even with like a smart DNS, which is what you use. If you want the U S Netflix on Apple TV, it won't work.
And so, but Bree and I spent spent hours the last two days within news on watching all of the politics, switching between Fox news and CNN. It's so interesting.
Tommy Jackett: [00:15:55] I think you, you outline this when you were not using social media, you end up watching more news. Cause that was like on your phone. What do you do?
You go to a new site because you want to feel connected. It's like a S it's almost a similar connection to the social media stuff. And so I was looking at a bunch of news sites and then I was like, this is pointless, but there is a lot happening at the moment. The U S staff astray like Victoria specifically.
Wow. I mean, are you any smarter?
Josh Janssen: [00:16:26] You got it. I mean, it's very much like that sort of, it is the social media of news. It's sort of like 24 hour news thing. Yeah. But, uh,
Tommy Jackett: [00:16:40] yeah. Well, one thing I did a bit of a rabbit hole. I went down with it tunnels tunnels of New York. And so. I went down. Um, there was just some sort of photographer, video people like sneaking into the train
Josh Janssen: [00:16:55] station, like the last one that they normally skip over.
Tommy Jackett: [00:16:59] Yeah. The abandoned, it's not a bit, I mean, it never gets used, but it's like interesting facts of like it's built with this curvature that like is they would never do it again, based on trains have to go so slow and it screeches through, but like the beautiful tiles that are used at it. It looks like a set of a film, but then, but then there's other ones like water tunnels under New York.
And then there's the people that live in the train tunnel system under New York. It's like, and he sees some of the comments where he, you know, here during covert hope. Everyone's all right. Psych, some of these people lived in these tunnels for 28 years. It's phenomenal.
Josh Janssen: [00:17:41] Yeah. The, um, yeah, it is very, it's very interesting to think that like, there's something a bit sort of old worldy about it.
Like you can start to imagine, like there's a, there's a great, here's a, there's a film that I'll recommend. It's called American movie. It's on a, you can buy it on YouTube. It's like three 95 or something, but it's from the nineties and it's about a guy wanting to make a feature film. And they follow his whole it's in like a Wisconsin, I think.
And, um, anyway, it's so good because like all the old fashion, like, just like the nineties, like every single thing yeah. That they wore would be like hot right now. It's just like the beetle, the letters, like the beats. I like the NBA fashion. It reminded me a little bit of the last dance, but, um, yeah, an American movie.
If you're a filmmaker, if you like behind the scenes stuff, It's a guy who's just like trying all he can. He spends years trying to make a film and the documentary is better than the actual film making. It's pretty fun.
Tommy Jackett: [00:18:50] When did it get, it would made in the nineties. Was that,
Josh Janssen: [00:18:52] yeah, it was released, I think it was released in 90, 1998, maybe American movie, but, um, I couldn't say, like, I remember watching it.
Years ago. Uh, so yeah, it came out, came out in 1999. And, um, you know, if you're, if you're into filmmaking or at nineties culture, you'll laugh, you will like it.
Tommy Jackett: [00:19:20] How was your weekend? Did you, what did you do get out and
Josh Janssen: [00:19:23] do our Friday first time I've ever done this, drank in the park. Oh, yeah, yeah, yeah. It was great.
And it was good. Well, shit, whether it was pissing down with rain. So Brene and I walked there, so we walked to that 200 meter bit where serves in grace, like overlaps and we, um, Yeah, we, we had, what was it called? Gordon's gin. Oh yeah. Hands.
Tommy Jackett: [00:19:51] Okay. Yeah. Yeah.
Josh Janssen: [00:19:52] It wasn't like, yeah, it was great. We
Tommy Jackett: [00:19:54] had quite sweet out there.
Josh Janssen: [00:19:55] Yeah. Yeah. Like the lemon lemon flavor, I think. But yeah, they were delicious, but then we ordered Uber rates to the past, which is awesome. The local chicken shop. We ordered McFlurries afterwards to the park. It was so good. We're the only ones. So there was one other family or whatever behind us. And they ended up leaving.
So it was just us, but we also had our baseball gear. And so we were like a bit pierced. We ended up like Uber at home, but we were a bit pissed and we, um, like just like playing, like I reckon I improved my baseball being a little bit tipsy. So that was, that was fun. It reminded me it was something that I didn't do with like, I wasn't, uh, I didn't drink when I was a kid.
Yeah. Yeah. And so the drinking in the park thing feels like a real experience.
Tommy Jackett: [00:20:47] Well, yeah, I think it's now that the, whoever hasn't done it in the past is going to have to start doing it in the future. Cause I think, I mean, that's looking like social, social occasions from here on out.
Josh Janssen: [00:20:59] What have you worked out that you can do with the changes coming into effect?
Have you worked out anything?
Tommy Jackett: [00:21:05] Are I can go to my parents' place, which is good. Which is, um,
Josh Janssen: [00:21:10] like parents, like 25.5, I reckon, or 26 days.
Tommy Jackett: [00:21:15] Oh, he's he's the, no, but here's the thing. My parent's place. Uh, you have to drive over 25 Ks to get there. Right.
Josh Janssen: [00:21:26] If you just do the radius thing. Yeah.
Tommy Jackett: [00:21:27] Yeah. And so I reckon there'll be a bunch of people will just typing in an address and going, ah, it's further away than it is.
It's like, no. Yeah. Good look at that radius. You look at that Martin so I can get well beyond my parents' place. That'd be nice for birdie can go. You know, you can find a party at my parents' joint
Josh Janssen: [00:21:44] will be, let's see what people do with the rules. Because even as the guy who follows every single role, I didn't even know what the rules are now.
Like I, like, I didn't know if I was able to be at the park. It's just like, there's a, there's a point where it's just like, okay, I'm just going to use my common sense here. I don't see anyone else. We're wearing a mask, but you see, when you get a bit tipsy, the mask comes off and you get a bit dumb.
Tommy Jackett: [00:22:13] Can, you can drive to, you know, um, Karen from Brighton can finally go back to the tan and walk this hand. Oh great. Cause you can drive further and do exercises now. Um, there's no limit to how long you can be out now.
Josh Janssen: [00:22:31] You can be out for any reason. Is that the idea?
Tommy Jackett: [00:22:34] That's I think
Josh Janssen: [00:22:35] so. Yeah.
Tommy Jackett: [00:22:37] Yeah. Which would, which would think that offices could go back, you know, COVID safe, like small teams.
Josh Janssen: [00:22:44] I didn't even think.
Tommy Jackett: [00:22:46] Well, cause this is the thing we're trying to work at because the business bodies of Victoria coming out saying. There's no fucking information here. I'm just trying to sort of break the DaVinci code of Dan Andrews. I mean, one thing for sure is Dan's getting a haircut today because haircuts are back and he needs it and I do too.
Josh Janssen: [00:23:05] Um, yeah. Yeah. My hair is a little bit, a bit crazy. I had to shave my neck beard cause it was just getting a little bit out of table, but I think we can just say I'm excited. So one thing, if you watch CNN, if you watch all of this stuff, it gives you a bit of perspective. Around how bad it's getting overseas.
So you look at, uh, like I think even Dan Andrews didn't even really talk about it that much, which I get, because you don't, when you're wanting information about Victoria, you don't want to spend the time saying how factor it is. It's all the places. But the thing is that you're
Tommy Jackett: [00:23:43] looking in Italy up
Josh Janssen: [00:23:44] there though.
Yeah. But the thing is, it's like, They are in a world of pain in regards to what's about to happen in regards to lockdowns. And it's going to be way, way, way more severe. And so it's just like this eye. It's not ideal. I know that like people have lost their jobs, businesses. Aren't able to operate all of this stuff, but this is the best version of a bad situation.
That's how I feel. And so you look at when you watch the CNN stuff and you see how many cases. Like in the tens of thousands of cases every single day, it's like, okay, well, um, how do you, how do you come back from that? What is that going to take? And then in the States, how crazy is this? So they they're, um, airflow is important.
And so, uh, uh, they're encouraging schools or some schools, uh, even in winter as we sort of approach winter they're in fall at the moment, but in winter actually having the windows open and giving kids like blankets because the, um, because apparently the virus. Spreads a lot when it's indoors, when you sort of breathing the same air or not.
So I think, but then this is the worst, a bit of it all, a lot of schools have put a huge amount of investment in anti gun stuff around like school shootings. And so they don't even have access to the windows, like to be able to open the map and schools won't even. They don't want to do outside learning because they've spent the last few years building out their security and having all of these protocols, like it's, it's a bit messy.
And so that's why you watch the news, you know,
Tommy Jackett: [00:25:38] to really feel good about the human existence. I mean, I was just thinking over the last couple of days, um, you know, we were in LA on the year ago almost a year ago, but then I was even thinking about, you know, the start of this year just before. And I was like, I wish.
This is always the case. She always, like, I wish I had more perspective in the time. If like, if you would knowing what was about to happen, you'd be, you'd be more, you never would have felt better about having, you know, a sweaty bloke in your ear at a nightclub, just yelling at you. I'd am
Josh Janssen: [00:26:15] to say, yeah,
Tommy Jackett: [00:26:16] I can have his eighties.
He's high scope. Just that you had no, no worry of catching something or even like that thought wasn't in our mind, you think about young Bodie and I'm like, yeah. This kid has, you know, like there was a time for him before, but now he's just, this is only Nara. So when he grows up, what here we looking back and I mean, I hope that it does get to D it's a distant memory in the future where we're just like, ah, I remember that weird time, but you bet you've lost.
You've lost a bunch of the real sort of feelings that were attached to it. You've got, you know, some more so like, you know, you've got a better lens on the past than it felt in the time
Josh Janssen: [00:27:03] I was speaking to Gronk Glen in Florida who comes to the, comes to Australia for 'em. Oh, exactly. Yeah. Things like that.
But, um, it was like, Oh, we think like it will be happening, but I can't imagine internationals being able to come to Melbourne for an event like ours open in January with everything I've been through it, like, think about the, the rate of infection overseas. We couldn't afford to open it up.
Tommy Jackett: [00:27:37] I wouldn't be surprised if they did it without, without like the most minimal people,
Josh Janssen: [00:27:43] like,
Tommy Jackett: [00:27:44] like the, like the actual U S open
Josh Janssen: [00:27:48] the athletes, uh, um, Uh, getting sick, like who is this?
Was it soccer? yes. Who's. Hey,
Tommy Jackett: [00:27:56] so compliance Denalda yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah. Chuck a player in the world. Yeah, he got it racing.
Josh Janssen: [00:28:01] It's not that big. I think David Beckham's bigger. Cause I know about it. I don't know about Fernando.
Tommy Jackett: [00:28:05] My dad was bake him as a name. Actually. I reckon there'll be young fans actually.
Now, if you're a soccer fan you'd know David Beckham, but I mean, if you're a young kid,
Josh Janssen: [00:28:16] Rinaldo, you could have said that he's a and I would have believed it. Seriously.
Tommy Jackett: [00:28:22] Yeah.
Josh Janssen: [00:28:24] And so who does he play for?
Tommy Jackett: [00:28:26] Uh, Basler.
Josh Janssen: [00:28:27] Was it also the fact that you don't know straight away tells me, but he's an artist.
Tommy Jackett: [00:28:32] I don't follow the major league.
And so the, um, I don't follow that. Like he's in a European league follow though. He's in a European league, but I'm only the. The Veneto club and whatever happens there.
Josh Janssen: [00:28:48] No, I
Tommy Jackett: [00:28:48] don't follow it. I don't follow that, but I just know he's a superstar and he's a good looking. Yeah.
Josh Janssen: [00:28:55] Well,
Tommy Jackett: [00:28:55] Tim has a lot of money and great cars.
Josh Janssen: [00:28:57] Um, air fries. Been thinking about them a lot. Hey, miss twice, support them on the show.
Tommy Jackett: [00:29:03] It's awesome. A little photo of them. Uh, can you get one? Cause I've thought about them in the
Josh Janssen: [00:29:08] past. Well, that's what a few people have said that. Can you get it and tell me what you think.
Tommy Jackett: [00:29:14] Can we get a show, air fry?
Josh Janssen: [00:29:16] Yeah, but where are we going to keep it?
Yeah. At the office. Yeah.
Tommy Jackett: [00:29:19] I feel like a certain cat. The office. Yeah, no, that's going to stink it out. He might shed, I'll run a cord to the shed and
Josh Janssen: [00:29:28] we can turn it on and just cook she drugs in them. But, um, yeah, I don't know. I just, I just, uh, I'm torn because it's, it'll take up a bunch of space. The, um, the fact that it's easier to clean that excites me.
But, um, but then I just worry, I've I've, uh, mentioned this, that the, I worry that I won't be eating healthy food that I'll just, it'll just be too easy to eat chicken tenders, uh, uh, Gronk, Shannon. She said, aren't, you can do roast veggies and that like, you can do veggies and things like that. But then I asked as when people are saying, yeah, I love it.
I said, what do you cook? And, you know, cam Shannon was saying, I cook chicken tenders. And so I feel like there is that risk in me just cooking up a lot of chicken tenders, too many,
Tommy Jackett: [00:30:22] just, yeah. I'd like to say, I mean, this is the thing, the technology is gone. It's very, you know, it's very far and they've probably refined it.
But in my mind, I was like, you, can he cook a chicken tender in a fucking a fry?
Josh Janssen: [00:30:36] Well, I want to get a tray grill. So I started following Traeger grills on they've got like their own Australian account. Trevor's got one at the moment. He's doing a review of a, of a Traeger grill. Uh, so, so I'm tempted. Like I think that I'm more leaning towards a Trager grill than an air fryer at the moment, but, um, yeah, it's, it's funny with the U S TV watching all of the ads.
All the things that they are way better, it's selling shit. And when you watch the ads. They have, um, I nearly brought, bought this, um, $200 nasal douche. So it's like an electric it's electric because Bray has like sinus thing. Like she works at I'm like, I've got fucking pressure. Yeah. It's like, you know, knows she, or like her years, like she sort of feels it in her ears.
And um, so she needs to blow her nose or whatever. And she got like a manual nasal dose and there's this nasal douche. I forgot the brand.
Tommy Jackett: [00:31:34] Bedside nasal dish. One more time,
Josh Janssen: [00:31:37] nasal dish. But you, you, you, you put it to your nostrils and then it like electric, like sort of like really strong water jets through your nose.
Like does a bit of a S
Tommy Jackett: [00:31:49] like one nostril
Josh Janssen: [00:31:51] out the other. Yeah. Yeah. But the ads, they, um, they're just very, um, compelling, but they do that with their medical stuff. They do to, you know, the ad goes longer. Like there's more information on the side effects than the actual medication
Tommy Jackett: [00:32:09] they have to say, disclaimer, but then they can push.
I can push heavier drugs through advertising with, with this, with the caveat at the end, you may die. Um, but do you think that the ads are better? Purely because they're an American accent and you're watching them like, think about, you're not going to watch Australian ads. You'd be so pissed off if somehow you're on watching a TV and there's, you know, you'd be offended.
Look this fucking asshole trying to sell me something. But in a, like there's something, it almost feels like you're watching a movie, American testimony
Josh Janssen: [00:32:43] like Australia doesn't do fake testimonials, but they do fake testimonials. So well, it's like, um, Like the other product was like skin ticks, skin tags, tags, tags, tag, this like a liquid like this go high was saying, Oh yeah, the doctor wanted to charge me 65 bucks for every, every tag.
Um, but he got this liquid like to freeze it off, but there was this liquid where you could just rub it on and they'd disappear. I thought that was a core product. And then there was another one where it was, um, a, uh, A iPhone holder in a, in a cup. And they were talking about like the cup holder. So like in your car.
So where the cup holder goes, that's where the, the phone holder is. And they, um, and I was like, I don't need the, like, it's a terrible spot. Right? Like you're looking down. But then they were showing the other cup holder products where they give you five different cup holder sizes, and you have to pick the one that fits the cup powder.
Whereas these you twirl of, uh, yeah. Knob and it expands to the cup holder. So that was another good one. Another one was a, um, a walking stick. And it had like four at the bottom four little suction cups, so it can stand on its own. And it was a really, it was like really quick. Yeah. I just feel that the octopus, yeah, it had that vibe, but now I feel, um, I was tempted to buy a lot more things.
And so I wonder. I wonder what we can learn from the U S when it comes to selling.
Tommy Jackett: [00:34:22] Yeah. Let's set up a site, fake testimonials.com and we will get anyone to
Josh Janssen: [00:34:29] Fiverr Fiverr already. Like, you can see people will do that on five

Tommy Jackett: [00:34:40] That's an extra five.
Josh Janssen: [00:34:41] Yeah. Yeah. Stethoscope is an extra five. Um,
Tommy Jackett: [00:34:46] I love it. I love it. Um, just to clarify Karen from Brighton, supposedly she's moved to Queensland, so she'd be walking down the, you know, down the beach. Um, George Martin says that, uh, Rinaldo plays for Juventus, Juventus.
Fuck. I was never going to get that. Um, and that's about it.
