Josh Janssen: [00:00:00] it's the daily talk show episode 921.
Tommy Jackett: [00:00:08] Happy Sunday, Gronk. What's happening. What's going on GB. Welcome buddy.
George Martin: [00:00:14] Thank you. Fired up today, feeling good.
Tommy Jackett: [00:00:16] What do you find out for, tell me your top reasons for being fired up? Well, uh,
George Martin: [00:00:23] screenplay Sunday finale is out.
Josh Janssen: [00:00:26] That was great.
George Martin: [00:00:27] Um,
Josh Janssen: [00:00:29] Can I just say the bookworm collective, it was very, it was so lovely that they sponsored that it's almost your mum does such nice things that.
I get anxiety about the, thank you. Like just saying thank you. Doesn't feel enough. So I haven't even written to it yet because I'm trying to work out what to say.
Tommy Jackett: [00:00:47] Oh, we're actually flying you up there to say, thank you.
Josh Janssen: [00:00:51] Do you know that problem where it's like, when someone does something for you, which is like overly generous and then actually you, you don't know what to do.
Tommy Jackett: [00:00:59] Dude. I, I, um, this lady gave me a compliment and I like, poo-pooed it or something. And she's like, can you
Mason Lauder: [00:01:07] double them down, by the way,
Tommy Jackett: [00:01:09] can you do art? Like make my son's obsessed with poo everything's
Josh Janssen: [00:01:12] poop, poop, poop.
Tommy Jackett: [00:01:14] And he fucking loves Pope a lot. Doesn't like,
Josh Janssen: [00:01:17] shit, just like, what did the lady say for you to, um, say Nana?
Tommy Jackett: [00:01:23] Oh, you're really great at what you do. And I was just being. Yeah. You know how that makes you feel a bit weird when someone's giving you a really nice compliment, but it's the same thing.
Josh Janssen: [00:01:32] It's like what you're doing at the time.
Tommy Jackett: [00:01:39] no, no,
Josh Janssen: [00:01:40] no, no, no. I'm retiring kind of lingers by the way.
Tommy Jackett: [00:01:44] It was nice. She actually just said you shouldn't taking compliments, Tommy. And I was like, Oh, that's true. So I've like Lindt into them a bit more, but it's that? Thank you. It's like being really. Oh, thank you. That's so nice. And so Josh, I know the feeling it's, I think it's in the same space as getting a compliment or someone doing something nice.
It's like you for it just makes you phrase a bit, you know, you're
Josh Janssen: [00:02:06] not worthy, you know?
Tommy Jackett: [00:02:07] Maybe. Yeah. But, um, what I will say is I'm sending over a tax invoice out. It is a, a tax deductible
Josh Janssen: [00:02:15] contribution. Right. And we have, we just got a charity. Um, like what's it called when you get your, a
Tommy Jackett: [00:02:22] charitable donation for the year?
Josh Janssen: [00:02:24] Yeah. Where did you say charity and so JB. Yeah. So that's, um, you're fired up about screenplay Sunday. What are the three things you fired up about?
George Martin: [00:02:34] Um,
Josh Janssen: [00:02:35] well,
George Martin: [00:02:36] Visiting a friend for her birthday.
Josh Janssen: [00:02:39] Oh, that's nice. Um, yeah.
George Martin: [00:02:42] Legally before the restrictions needs even more tomorrow. Okay. Is that they will, I think they will be eating more
Josh Janssen: [00:02:48] really.
Um, what are you predicting? He can have like,
George Martin: [00:02:51] well, I'm pretty sure he can have like a hundred people at a party or something going be wrong. Oh, no, sorry. Sorry. Sports centers will be able to have a hundred people
Mason Lauder: [00:03:00] different for two, uh, parties.
Josh Janssen: [00:03:02] Yeah, yeah. Yeah.
Tommy Jackett: [00:03:05] That's a party at a sports center.
Josh Janssen: [00:03:07] You've got a job.
George Martin: [00:03:10] what else says? It says that
Josh Janssen: [00:03:11] and just
George Martin: [00:03:13] dunno, just, it just feels, I just get that feeling of like coming to the end of the year. And it's just like, it feels like the end of school it's exciting. And Christmas is coming up.
Josh Janssen: [00:03:21] Teachers are bad,
George Martin: [00:03:22] you know?
Tommy Jackett: [00:03:23] Yeah. Everyone's a bit looser. It is right. Like they've started putting Christmas decorations on everything, went out with Bodie and he was pointing, Oh my God, there's a Christmas, Christmas tree up there.
Like on top of shit, like. Just, you know, down, down the streets, you know, decorating, have you seen any Josh, have you? I may have in that
Josh Janssen: [00:03:41] I haven't seen. And that many, but what I will say is that this time of year reminds me of when being in school. A hot day. All of a sudden the teacher brings out some frosty fruits or some icy poles.
Everyone gets an know. Do you remember
Tommy Jackett: [00:03:52] that? There's something about a hot day in Melbourne that has the, it just triggers so many memories at the skate park in the city. That's like all the things as a youth, like when you're young, you're usually just hanging around
Josh Janssen: [00:04:05] water bombs,
Tommy Jackett: [00:04:06] water bombs, the smell of grass, dried hot grass, just like, yeah.
It's um, I mean the tweeter. I I'd love to do it snow Christmas one year. I've never done it.
Mason Lauder: [00:04:22] Why just, yeah.
Josh Janssen: [00:04:24] White Christmas, no Christmas snipers. Are you really pushing back? Like, no, it's a snack. I'm going to, I don't want to go to a white desert. I want to go to sleep.
Tommy Jackett: [00:04:33] The problem with, I want confirmation of snow.
You go to fucking New York chances. It's not going to be snowy. Literally you book out a, you know, $4,000 a week, you know, to one bedroom and then you get there and it's raining all week. So I want to go, when I say snuck Christmas, I want to go to. Luring Antarctica or one of those Switzerland, uh, one of those towns that you can walk out your front door and there's a chairlift and you got a hail
Josh Janssen: [00:05:00] Christmas.
You don't want to hail Christmas.
Tommy Jackett: [00:05:02] Absolutely. No rain, Christmas hail Christmas beach. Christmas is what I've done. Majority of my life, like, you know, near
Josh Janssen: [00:05:10] the novelty's worn off. I think the beach stuff like the, um, Familiar anyway.
Tommy Jackett: [00:05:15] Yeah. I mean, it is hot sweaty times. I mean, over in America, you've got, um, you've got old mate Giuliani Trump's lawyer.
Have you seen the photo of him doing some kind of press conference, swaying black
Josh Janssen: [00:05:30] hair product or something?
Tommy Jackett: [00:05:32] So, I mean, he's an old man. He's late seventies and he. Is sweating profusely and he's obviously dyed his hair, like, and it seems like saves your hair. Didn't run whites when you had bleached hair.
So this is like some. It's almost like he's just run it through his hair that morning in the shower, and then he's letting it dry, but then it got a bit hot and now he's sweating and the DI's coming from East he's. Um, what do you call it? Like your temples or sideburn temple area? Just dripping down, but it's got, yeah.
George Martin: [00:06:08] It looks like he's been punched in the temple and it's like blood coming down. His sideband
Tommy Jackett: [00:06:11] black blood. That's what he blades is black blood. But I mean, I feel for it, like I'm going gray, I've got graze in the side of my hair. I'm definitely not going bold. I'm different going gray. I've got one.
George Martin: [00:06:23] I got my hair cut like the other week and I was shocked at how many grays were falling on me.
Tommy Jackett: [00:06:28] Well, that's brilliant.
George Martin: [00:06:31] It could have been dandruff
Josh Janssen: [00:06:31] who knows it was all yellow.
Tommy Jackett: [00:06:38] I mean, they look like
George Martin: [00:06:38] gray heads. It's like Ash. And I was like, Jesus,
Josh Janssen: [00:06:41] really?
Tommy Jackett: [00:06:41] What's the vibe? What are you feeling, George? When he's saying that?
George Martin: [00:06:45] Uh, you know,
Tommy Jackett: [00:06:45] just like getting big BD company's fault
Josh Janssen: [00:06:50] for every episode of hump day,
I feel like, I feel like, um, the trolling of my hair has ramped up of light. If gray has one right here at the back. Thank you. Thank you. And
Mason Lauder: [00:07:05] you do have it really great. Yeah.
Josh Janssen: [00:07:07] But for whatever reason, I think that my good hair provokes. People were saying what they thought my hair was going. So I was like, your hair looks great.
It doesn't look like you're balding Mike. We're like we thought or things like that. Um, but no,
Tommy Jackett: [00:07:21] he's, he's a drastically different look with you with the haircut and you not with a haircut.
Josh Janssen: [00:07:26] I didn't really say I didn't realize.
Tommy Jackett: [00:07:28] So this takes five years off you, 10 years off you in terms of looks. And this is
Josh Janssen: [00:07:32] why I don't realize even with hair.
If even beaten over beard wise, right? Like, I don't even think about it. Like I kind of see that, like, I don't even feel the difference necessarily in a big way. And then you will catch up with her. Even grace was like, ah, you, you shaved, I completely had forgotten. Didn't even think that there was much of a difference.
Tommy Jackett: [00:07:50] Yeah. Yes, yes. It definitely does.
George Martin: [00:07:54] Yeah. You bald completely different when
Josh Janssen: [00:07:57] you bold. Yeah. She bold you bold. Um, yeah, no, I, I appreciate that. I th I think that, uh, now that I'm sort of, uh, you know, 20, 21, I definitely the year for me is going to do the small things. So not to give away the new year's resolutions, cause that's half the big one.
It's a bit early, but, um, But there'll definitely be a move to going to the cafe, ordering the coffee a little bit of, um, uh, the subtle art of not giving a fuck because it's so part of it is all of the issues I have is the stress of what's the barista going to say, what if I bumped into this person? What if they want to have a chat?
Like, but it's like, Well, I
George Martin: [00:08:46] felt a little bit of that this morning, Josh, because I went to the cafe that me and Tommy go to. And, but I didn't want to get a coffee and I just wanted a croissant. And I was like, Oh no, like after it actually say. Can I just have a croissant and no coffee, and I felt awkward as about it.
Josh Janssen: [00:09:01] And so before you even started making it though, when you, so you've got to almost walk through the door and say, no car, no coffee. Cause the barista might already fucking have it in there in the little spout. By the time you are
Tommy Jackett: [00:09:14] now, it is a real life pressure. I, this morning, literally. He must think I'm a bit weird.
Cause I'm like, Bodhi, what do you want? Like I'm getting the vocal order about to come through for him because usually this guy would just make me a coffee Bodie. What do you want baby chick. Yep. And I'll have the child. And by the time I said it, he was like, yeah, chart. They get onto it very quickly.
They're not feeling as we are. I feel, I feel the pressure because I feel like if he starts bubbling that milk and I'm not actually getting anything for my wife's
Josh Janssen: [00:09:43] business,
Tommy Jackett: [00:09:45] I mean,
Josh Janssen: [00:09:46] they put a closed sign on like what I does outside, you know, taking all their almond milk,
Tommy Jackett: [00:09:54] but now you're right. It is just all conjured up in our minds.
Josh Janssen: [00:09:58] And so that will be a big thing. There'll be a, and I think that the, um, it'll be a good timing. Uh, in, in regards to, I think with the restrictions, if they ease the way that we're seeing, I feel like it's like the perfect. If I'm going to go hermit 20, 20 was the year to do it in 2021 is about sort of being a little bit more out and about shell.
George Martin: [00:10:20] Yep.
Tommy Jackett: [00:10:21] Yeah. So with the,
George Martin: [00:10:22] with the, um, resolutions, can you explain what so a way picking them on December one, but we're not.
Josh Janssen: [00:10:34] don't get curious on that one. George, I'm going to stop you right there. Curious
Tommy Jackett: [00:10:39] the resolutions on Jan one. Traditionally, a lot of people do. Yeah. But the problem is it's Jan one and you've got momentum into the new year, through Christmas parties through, you know, out of that. Any other DoubleTree that you've just, you know, like things that you've just let go of physically, mentally, emotionally, spiritually that's Craig outside.
Yep. Um, so December one, at least putting the intention in place to have cracks and file by December one. Not that you have to talk about them in descent. One.
Josh Janssen: [00:11:11] So this is, yeah, this is where it gets a bit hard, I think, because TJ, like, we had the idea and so we're like, wait December one, we're going to come up with it and all that sort of thing.
And then at the end I said, but, um, let's not say what they are, which I understand is it's sorta like, Hey guys, we're going to organize a disco DJ or that sort of thing. And last minute might just, I'll put in one thought, no dancing. If anyone dances, I think it would ruin it up.
Tommy Jackett: [00:11:36] We've got to work. No,
Josh Janssen: [00:11:39] one's going to be talking and we can't.
We've got the whole, we've got the TJ, we've got the speakers. We've got everything where your dancing shoes, but plays out of respect. Do not dance. Do not dent. There'll be chairs just on that. Yes. Sorry. Just quick, quick side note,
George Martin: [00:11:52] you know, in, I think it might new South Wales or the rules in new South Wales at a wedding.
You can have Ava dancing or alcohol at the moment. You can't have both. If you want to say what you want,
Tommy Jackett: [00:12:04] but one can't happen without the other. For most people
Josh Janssen: [00:12:07] dancing, sober is very, like, I love the idea is just like, yeah. What would you pick GB alcohol,
Tommy Jackett: [00:12:15] do you think you'd
Josh Janssen: [00:12:16] have to potentially, I mean, how do they, how do they monitor?
So can you have, can you have a music? And I don't know,
George Martin: [00:12:24] I think thinking of music, but everyone has to sit down or there's no drinks and you can dance. So
Tommy Jackett: [00:12:29] it's a bit weird because they will be everyone gets on the dance floor and makes out if they're pissed. Yeah. I think it's like,
George Martin: [00:12:34] I think getting close
Tommy Jackett: [00:12:36] alcohol will make people dance.
Even if there's no dance floor, I've been at venues where there's, there's not meant to be dance law, but somehow we found one it's like a random pop makes minute that the bar is a absolute heaving dance floor.
Josh Janssen: [00:12:50] And what sort of, when you drink, what do you end up doing? What's your go-to. If you've had a few, what, what, what does JB become?
George Martin: [00:12:59] Uh, just a bit, um, like, I guess funny
Mason Lauder: [00:13:09] boy,
Josh Janssen: [00:13:10] just a bit like a bit of a smartass,
George Martin: [00:13:12] just a bit, a bit sharper.
Josh Janssen: [00:13:16] They'll do things to
Mason Lauder: [00:13:18] get a cold room, just get a few drinks and
Josh Janssen: [00:13:21] think it's the quality. Of the, the jokes you're making or your understanding of what's funny?
George Martin: [00:13:30] Uh, no, I think the quality goes up and I'm a little, I'm a lot faster with like coming up with stuff, but I think it doesn't really
Mason Lauder: [00:13:37] do you think, and it's just because you don't have the barrier, like, you know, you're maybe about people judging you for your jokes.
He's just quick
George Martin: [00:13:44] maybe, but something. It just I've I've even noticed I've been like, Jesus. That was very good. Like came up with that one quickly. Wouldn't have been able to do that without,
Tommy Jackett: [00:13:53] is it that your quicker or your quicker to give yourself a
Josh Janssen: [00:13:58] for something that was good because
Tommy Jackett: [00:14:00] can, I'm good at giving myself compliments when I'm drunk, but I don't know if it's the reality that I'm actually quicker or smarter or anything.
George Martin: [00:14:09] I don't know. Well, I mean, you'll see it, the Christmas party I'll be on fire.
Josh Janssen: [00:14:14] I don't mind. We'll just be dancing
but I find that, uh, Bree is, it gets very loose and I almost feel potentially Mason, do you agree that that Bree is looser than I, and I'm the one that's like reigning it all and apologizing to everyone. Yeah. Yeah, just yelling and on the balcony, like just yelling on the balcony or it's very funny though.
She says, come in here. Yeah, kind of it, I'm not going to say what you said, but yeah, there was a lot of things that were said, that's just. Who was she yelling out? No, she was just, she was just doing this
Tommy Jackett: [00:14:54] young free, young,
Josh Janssen: [00:14:56] wild
Tommy Jackett: [00:14:57] living. Let him loose.
Josh Janssen: [00:14:59] What do you think makes sense out of you and grace? What's the, uh, where do you go when it comes to alcohol?
What are you like? What is grace like and how does it work together?
Mason Lauder: [00:15:09] I mean, I get very open mouth laughy. Just real, just real silent, but just like kind of stop giggling and just, I just find anything very, very funny,
Josh Janssen: [00:15:20] which is a perfect combo, which is the George.
George Martin: [00:15:24] Can I say a quiet, uh, that Mason said when we were having drinks here, here we go tonight, you came up to me and he's a bit pissed.
And he said, Oh yeah, you're saying that a lot. Oh, you can't remember this yet? Sorry. You came up to me and you said, um,
Josh Janssen: [00:15:42] yeah.
George Martin: [00:15:43] I understand why people do this.
Josh Janssen: [00:15:46] It's
George Martin: [00:15:46] fun. Isn't it?
Josh Janssen: [00:15:49] It's getting very meta. Isn't it at that point? Yeah. Talking about it just over it. I mean, that was the Los Angeles experience teacher.
Tommy Jackett: [00:15:57] well, I was a cyber one while Tali Mason and Josh were just getting plastered and it was, there was nothing. I mean, George, you would have had it when you're 14 drinking. That you're all like, wow, how do we feel? Oh my God.
Mason Lauder: [00:16:16] I do this every time though. Like, it's just, it's still just like moving your head to see if your vision's catching up with how much you're doing and like your hands.
How's your face? Like, is it a little
Josh Janssen: [00:16:26] bit, yeah, that's
George Martin: [00:16:27] definitely a 15 year old thing. I remember going to go into the toilet heaps because I got told. Yeah. It really dehydrated when you drunk, but like go off to the toilet and come back and be like a piece of steel clear guys,
Tommy Jackett: [00:16:42] break your seal. But yeah, it is. It's quite, I mean, most people have probably forgotten most people that probably listen to this as forgotten these times. But yeah, what you're observing is a, a child drinking. And what did he like,
Josh Janssen: [00:16:55] What's your, when you're, when you're drinking, what's what's your version.
Tommy Jackett: [00:17:00] out there. Find a funny fan. Funny, not funny. It's like an energy. It's like an energy that is fun.
Josh Janssen: [00:17:09] Different experiences for different alcohol. Do you think.
Tommy Jackett: [00:17:13] Uh, I mean, people don't, what's that Keela
Josh Janssen: [00:17:16] Tommy versus red wine Tommy.
Tommy Jackett: [00:17:19] Nah, I don't. Other than setting, it's like, you're not sculling red wine, but you're doing B bongs with cruises.
And so there's obviously going to be different environments. Uh, snorkel a thing that you can shotgun a beer or drink really quickly.
Josh Janssen: [00:17:38] So
Tommy Jackett: [00:17:38] I was like, no, that's say it's like,
George Martin: [00:17:42] it's a hose taped onto a Camry. Finally. Totally. A bottle of Coke. Yeah.
Tommy Jackett: [00:17:47] Holly will be bringing a circle to our part, our Christmas party.
Josh Janssen: [00:17:52] cruises actually has one. She does have that one
Tommy Jackett: [00:17:54] she would have for sure. No, but it is, um, And so the, the setting I've always heard that different drunk. I don't know. I don't think so. I just think they're different environments, which lead to different things. Um, you know, you might get a bit punchy drinking, lots of beers at the football versus having a red wine at a little supper club.
Josh Janssen: [00:18:15] That's my feedback with the, um, you know, going out to clubs. I just wonder what the club vibe gives you. Right. Versus,
Tommy Jackett: [00:18:24] yeah. It's like an intense, it's just noise and momentum moving forward to debauchery. Yep. And so,
Josh Janssen: [00:18:32] you know, I'm saying that word.
Tommy Jackett: [00:18:34] Yeah. I mean, the thing is, yeah, you, you're more fun. Drunk Josh than you are normal.
Josh Janssen: [00:18:40] I get the sense though that I can be, I can get, what do you mean services?
Mason Lauder: [00:18:46] I don't know if that's the guy you want to be more fun when you're.
Josh Janssen: [00:18:49] So do you think that your, do you think you're less fun when you pissed?
Mason Lauder: [00:18:52] No, I'm probably similar to you, but I,
Josh Janssen: [00:18:54] I don't, I don't know why I love that guy.
George Martin: [00:18:58] You don't wanna make that a standard.
Josh Janssen: [00:19:00] Yeah, no, but I don't know if there's a huge amount. I think to be honest, Part of it is when you're drinking other people around, you are drinking. And so everyone's a bit looser, but I think that I could enter into the looseness and I have many times before without drinking. So you almost like I pretend, but you almost, uh, you're just entering into the vibe.
So I was like, Oh yeah, improv. I can do it. Yeah.
Tommy Jackett: [00:19:26] Well you just lose some of those inhibitions
Josh Janssen: [00:19:30] or what does that, you're talking about judgment. And so that's what you're talking
Tommy Jackett: [00:19:34] about. The walking into a cafe, you probably not going to be thinking like that. If you've, the problem is it's the drug at the end of the day that we're talking about, imagine if this was, if cocaine was legal and what we're talking about right now is what do you like on cocaine?
Mason Lauder: [00:19:48] it is, it's just the thing. How do they, are they deciding which drugs are legal and which aren't because surely, surely there are drugs that are illegal, that aren't as bad as. Alcohol like alcohol, if anything should be illegal because of the impact that it has on paper. Right?
Tommy Jackett: [00:20:05] Absolutely. It's like marijuana not being legal.
And the deaths from marijuana are at zero in terms of the chemical itself, directly killing the alcohol and smoking. It's just
Mason Lauder: [00:20:22] like smoking,
Josh Janssen: [00:20:23] you know what I mean? Like what's the answer. So one thing is it's like, There's a paper where it's like either one of the States in the U S have just legalized all illicit drugs.
Really all of them.
George Martin: [00:20:35] Yeah. Well, I think it's going off the theory of
Tommy Jackett: [00:20:38] like,
Mason Lauder: [00:20:39] it's just not good as it
George Martin: [00:20:40] once. Um, there was a time when alcohol was illegal and what they found
Josh Janssen: [00:20:45] ambition or
George Martin: [00:20:47] prohibition, and what they found was that. It just caused way more people to smuggle in homemade stuff, which is essentially like more,
Josh Janssen: [00:20:56] yeah.
Even with the high tax of like tobacco, there's a huge black market for tobacco bring, you know, sort of smuggling it in and things like that. Yeah. Hmm.
George Martin: [00:21:06] So I guess they, yeah, they made it, um, Yeah, so they can monitor it and staff have bottle shops and that sort of thing,
Tommy Jackett: [00:21:14] business around. I think everything connected to it.
It's by like, thinking about what the nightclub bill night scene is, restaurants, it's all connected. If they just made alcohol illegal, you see the problem that it ends up causing.
Mason Lauder: [00:21:29] But imagine if your
Josh Janssen: [00:21:31] culture just
Mason Lauder: [00:21:31] didn't have it, like imagine, so alcohol was completely eliminated. I think you could still go to a pub.
You could still go to a club like
Tommy Jackett: [00:21:38] that would all be fine. He's the guy that doesn't go to pubs or
Josh Janssen: [00:21:40] clubs.
Mason Lauder: [00:21:42] There's still
Tommy Jackett: [00:21:43] no interest in wanting to go to the
Mason Lauder: [00:21:45] nah, absolutely not. But you're still going to restaurant lights. You still got music, like or everything you need to have. How
Josh Janssen: [00:21:50] many people are going to the clubs for the lights, by the way.
That's very funny. You still got the lights, you got the strobes. I've got the lasers, I guess. I mean, it's a good point. I'm sure there are
Tommy Jackett: [00:22:04] the point is that we're so far down the hole for people who are consuming alcohol, that aren't even addicted, but just like it as a social lubricant or just, you know, every now and then like Lemo, who was on the show, told us about it.
You know, him drinking wine at night loves it. But the point being, if you just remove all of it, it's what's going to happen. What would fucking happen? I didn't think they could. I don't think we're at a time where we could. Make it illegal again?
Josh Janssen: [00:22:34] I think the thing is the, the key with alcohol, I think is it needs to be connected with, uh, big social.
So I think that the unwinding thing may be problematic. So it's like, you know, having the, you know, having a higher need to drink or whatever to unwind, but two, as a mechanism for a social gathering, you can say why it's so popular from a social gathering perspective, because it's like, you have like, I think that my biggest concern when there's a social thing is it's like reading the room and being like, Oh, do they want like, uh, is everyone happy?
What's going on? When you have had a bit, everyone, like, everyone's just a bit more transparent. And so it's like, Oh, okay. No, it's all good. Everything's fine. I can chill.
George Martin: [00:23:21] Yeah.
Josh Janssen: [00:23:22] Or
Tommy Jackett: [00:23:23] everyone is still the same, but you've changed. Not, not that everyone drink it. Cause there are people that don't that struggle with.
It definitely opens people up, but yeah, it's, it's a quicker way to get there. I guess you can.
Josh Janssen: [00:23:37] Is it not like getting, having a, um, an honest, like, so it's an, it's not this, but is it like an honesty pill or something where it's
Tommy Jackett: [00:23:46] like, Hey, this is what they say.
Josh Janssen: [00:23:47] Yeah. Do they actually say that?
Tommy Jackett: [00:23:49] What it's known?
It's like what you said last night when you were drunk is actually the truth
George Martin: [00:23:56] people. Yeah. People just saying school drunk, mind, speak sober thoughts.
Tommy Jackett: [00:24:00] Yeah, exactly, exactly. And so maybe you too.
Josh Janssen: [00:24:05] on screenplay Sunday that was made at snorted, by the way,
Mason Lauder: [00:24:09] you just,
Josh Janssen: [00:24:10] you through
Josh Janssen: [00:24:11] bus. Oh really? Yeah. That was me.
Tommy Jackett: [00:24:15] Onya snowing. They were drunk. You would have fucking
George Martin: [00:24:19] appreciate it.
Josh Janssen: [00:24:20] Yeah, I think it was something funny or about just like. Someone defending themselves because like, it wasn't me. Cause it's like, yeah. I don't know why you lying about that. Just, just own it. Yeah. So, you know, the, um, yes, a drunk mind speak, sober thoughts.
It's a, um,
Tommy Jackett: [00:24:38] Which he summer speaks. There's a lot of regret that can come from drinking
Josh Janssen: [00:24:41] because leave it. So proverb is a private,
Tommy Jackett: [00:24:46] you can call someone a fuck and not actually mean it, but mean it in a moment that you're not calling them a fuckwit is in you hate their guts.
Josh Janssen: [00:24:53] Was it Senator that said JB? Who, who was the philosopher?
Tim Ferris. I mean, to be fair, I'm the guy who loves, I mean, it's interesting when you start to, um, You're listening to Dex shepherd on, um, Tim Ferriss. He can hear how alcohol and all these sorts of things. You can S you can see why they. Are a bit toxic and you can see the problem. I think that what's hard is I was the push-back guy for 20, 28 years or whatever.
Not doing alcohol. What's funny
George Martin: [00:25:28] when you were one,
Josh Janssen: [00:25:29] you were like, no,
Tommy Jackett: [00:25:32] no,
Josh Janssen: [00:25:33] no. I was, I was
Tommy Jackett: [00:25:34] putting that spot your way, dad.
Josh Janssen: [00:25:36] There is, yeah, there's a middle ground where it's like, okay, like, I, I want to socially, you want to be able to go out. You don't want to be the person who's like. You know, there's people who it's like, they can't have a good time unless everyone else is drinking.
You know that, you know, that person yeah. Was like, ah, come on. Why don't you drink? Like here I get, I'll get you a drink. What do you want? Because it's like, it's going to inhibit their ability to have a good time. If everyone's not off their chops.
George Martin: [00:26:03] Yeah. Yeah. That's a bit of an issue.
Josh Janssen: [00:26:09] What do you got? you got something?
George Martin: [00:26:11] No, no. I was just
Mason Lauder: [00:26:12] a
Tommy Jackett: [00:26:13] blank, blank,
Josh Janssen: [00:26:15] blank.
George Martin: [00:26:16] The new year stuff we did.
Tommy Jackett: [00:26:21] Ah, yeah. So we're gonna, w it's just start thinking about what you want to sort of start implementing the decision we
George Martin: [00:26:29] announced. So we're not even announcing it on December, December one. We're announcing it on at 1000 and then we have to just tell the truth and be like, I've done it.
Josh Janssen: [00:26:37] Yeah. I'm, I'm really curious about it because maybe I am very excited about my new year's resolutions.
George Martin: [00:26:44] You need to be kept accountable, Eric, and you need to announce
Josh Janssen: [00:26:47] that. So what about if we put it in an envelope somewhere?
George Martin: [00:26:51] Oh yeah,
Josh Janssen: [00:26:52] but we could also do it. Like we could, I'm happy to what it's going to be.
It's going to be something for me. Just in a vague sense. And then we can sort of work it out
George Martin: [00:27:02] if we all tell one person.
Josh Janssen: [00:27:04] Yeah. That could be good. And they're all you a lot of white. Yeah. You're the liaison of all resolutions resolution liaison officer. No, but I'm thinking
Tommy Jackett: [00:27:19] checking guy.
Josh Janssen: [00:27:20] Yeah, it will be, even though the step challenge was horrendous, it will be a mix.
Mason Lauder: [00:27:28] you announcing it now?
Josh Janssen: [00:27:29] No, no, no. I'm just giving a sense. Just give me a
Tommy Jackett: [00:27:31] sense of the, on the tail on the 1st
Josh Janssen: [00:27:33] of December, but it's a bike, it's a bike, a resolution that's based around kilometers. And then
Mason Lauder: [00:27:42] miles in a month,
George Martin: [00:27:44] a million miles
Josh Janssen: [00:27:45] kilometers, and that we're talking kilometers. So there will be, there'll be a kilometer ax aspect and there will be a step aspect.
So I'll be taking two sort of cardio things and potentially there'll be a reading aspect. How much I'm reading on that? Monica? No, not on the bike. That will be sort of, you know, on the, you have to rest, you can't be on the bike all the time, you know? Okay, can we have a TJ? Can you give us a little tease
Tommy Jackett: [00:28:10] of I've landed?
I haven't met yet. It's definitely on just fucking getting shredded.
Josh Janssen: [00:28:15] Okay, sure.
Tommy Jackett: [00:28:20] It's yeah, a little bit just, you know, just being, can
Josh Janssen: [00:28:26] I say, would there be some sort of boxing involved?
Tommy Jackett: [00:28:30] No, I haven't got, I haven't
Josh Janssen: [00:28:31] maybe chicken protein from the eggs,
Okay. Okay. Yeah. So this is the problem I'm, I'm wanting to design everyone's JB. Um,
George Martin: [00:28:48] well, mine was, it's going to be in the same realm is rating. Okay. Really in that area haven't worked out or, you know, How much
Josh Janssen: [00:28:58] per day
Mason Lauder: [00:28:59] I will say, went to, um, I know Kaz sponsored, um, screenplay Sunday, but went to Avenue bookstore, uh,
George Martin: [00:29:08] on the weekend.
Tommy Jackett: [00:29:09] in Albert
Josh Janssen: [00:29:09] Park, is it a local bookstore? It would be at Richmond. Wouldn't it? Spawns Richmond? Yeah. In
Mason Lauder: [00:29:13] Richmond, Brittany hunky-dory and grilled
George Martin: [00:29:16] that's. Um,
Mason Lauder: [00:29:17] it's lovely. Literally, we probably spent 25 minutes in there just looking and it's a bit hard with COVID. Cause I don't know if you meant to touch the books, but like we would just.
Picking all of
Josh Janssen: [00:29:27] them up
George Martin: [00:29:27] by
Tommy Jackett: [00:29:28] before you try.
Josh Janssen: [00:29:31] Yeah.
Mason Lauder: [00:29:31] But just lovely. Like I miss covers,
Josh Janssen: [00:29:33] like, did you buy a book if you don't get to book, spend the 25 minutes and then.
George Martin: [00:29:42] Online?
Mason Lauder: [00:29:45] No,
Josh Janssen: [00:29:45] no, the scanning, the barcodes
Mason Lauder: [00:29:52] but, but like, just like, they do a great job of like selecting which ones. Like go on the shelves and stuff like with Amazon and stuff, like you got like the best sellers and stuff, but they're not really that good. Like the, um, in the actual bookstore they've got like their science one, they had like all these different covers and it was great
Josh Janssen: [00:30:09] because it's more sort of personally.
Picked it's more bespoke. It's not sort of, you can't, you can't, um, give the personal touch that a bookshop has. Does your mum, uh, JB, does she look after any of that sort of stuff? Is she actually placing? Is she doing visual merchandising? Yeah, big time.
George Martin: [00:30:29] And my, everyone is in that store. My stepdad. He's great at it.
You got your face outs, you got
Josh Janssen: [00:30:34] your.
George Martin: [00:30:35] Spines. Um,
If you're getting a face out
Josh Janssen: [00:30:43] that's big time.
George Martin: [00:30:44] I mean, so it's usually you get like spine, spine, spine, face out spine, you know, you want a bit, a bit of everything.
Josh Janssen: [00:30:50] I mean, there's no lower than a spine unless it's like stored out in the back, right?
Tommy Jackett: [00:30:54] No, it's around the other way. Pages out.
Josh Janssen: [00:31:01] that's pretty loose. Okay, great. No, I, I, um, I think something around rating would be, would be good, but, um, December one, that's when we'll find out more about what everyone's doing long run. Yeah. Yeah, it's not that long. It's it's it's, uh, two weeks. A
George Martin: [00:31:14] couple of weeks. 10 days. Yup.
Josh Janssen: [00:31:15] Okay, great. Alrighty. Well, enjoy your recipe Sunday and more or less say tomorrow, have a good one guys.
Tommy Jackett: [00:31:22] See you guys.
