Josh Janssen: [00:00:00] It's the daily talk show episode 924
Tommy Jackett: [00:00:07] happy hump day grow hunks. What's happening? What is going on? It's
Josh Janssen: [00:00:11] the 25th of November, which means one month until Christmas.
Tommy Jackett: [00:00:15] Wow. It is. I mean, bodies' been waiting. My son's been waking up every morning is because in the, because when I put him to bed, I whisper in his ear.
And I just say
Josh Janssen: [00:00:25] on the,
Tommy Jackett: [00:00:26] I say, um, wait, going to Nana's. At Christmas and we're doing it drive a, um, uh, you know, we're doing a road trip. I'd go through the whole day of what it'll look over denying I have for the last couple of nights. But the problem is he wakes up saying, Oh, we go eat in Nana's man. So it's a no, no son, another couple of weeks.
And another couple of weeks, um, mate, this nearly the year,
Josh Janssen: [00:00:53] I can't see the end. Can you like, it's this weird feeling where I know that there's. Only, yeah, we've only got three or four weeks until it's sort of like, you know, everyone's on leave. Yeah, it feels a bit ridiculous.
Tommy Jackett: [00:01:09] Well it's yeah. Well you right now, people have got a lot of momentum.
If, if any, if they've had any in Melbourne, just based on opening up. So it's you feeling like there's not gonna be a slow down again because we've been so slow this year. Um, Andy has written in the YouTube comments, quite a fun, little quirky, uh, anecdotal sort of little thing. I want to read it out.
Josh Janssen: [00:01:30] A riddle, maybe
Tommy Jackett: [00:01:31] riddle.
Well, uh, I mean he says, um, 20 years ago we had Johnny Cash, Bob hope and Steve jobs. Now we have no cash, no hope and no jobs. Please don't let Kevin back and die. I don't know. I don't. I know the Kevin bacon thing has just been referenced many times. I don't know. I thought it was more
Josh Janssen: [00:01:52] vacant. Like don't get rid of bacon.
Tommy Jackett: [00:01:56] Well, Kevin bacon is like that six degrees of Kevin bacon is a thing.
Josh Janssen: [00:02:00] Yeah. I thought that it could. So if you think about it's all about the last names, so Johnny Cash, Bob hope.
Tommy Jackett: [00:02:09] Yeah, I get the jobs. I get those Kevin jobs, bacon, no cash, no, no hype, no jobs, no bail, which is very relevant to this year. Um, but then I just looked up, uh, anecdotes or quotes.
Oh, reflecting this year. So 2020, which is kind of what you're saying. It says one of them I found 1977. They used to say, stay in alive 20, 20, stay in the life. What's another one 2020 verb. When you screw things up beyond belief example, Chad's car hit a pole and knocked out power and well, long story short, the 20, 20, 20, 20.
Josh Janssen: [00:02:48] Oh, I hate reading names.
Tommy Jackett: [00:02:50] John squad is destroying the city. Yeah. Right.
Josh Janssen: [00:02:53] So two names from, should we do a meme a day?
Tommy Jackett: [00:02:56] Yeah. Well it depends. I mean, yeah.
Josh Janssen: [00:03:00] I mean, Oh, I hit a little bit, like it's a very hard without the visual. I did say a funny meme.
Tommy Jackett: [00:03:06] These are texts, text memes, not. You know, photo means
Josh Janssen: [00:03:12] I would expect.
Yeah. I would expect sort of issue of doing photo meme. She would describe visual.
Tommy Jackett: [00:03:18] You'd have to 2020 is every Nick cage movie without Nick cage. I mean, they go very bespoke don't they? I can't believe they save it and has it, and
Josh Janssen: [00:03:28] just try and keep, try and make me laugh. You try and tell a joke or,
Tommy Jackett: [00:03:32] um, Nah, I got nothing.
I, we should have stopped at Andy's to be honest, that was a good one.
Josh Janssen: [00:03:40] There was a, um, there was a funny meme though. So yesterday, which was, uh, a screen grab of, um, uh, Excel spreadsheet, software. And, uh, it was a tweet. And then it's, um, Xcel finally has stories like with a love heart, and it's got like the store, like Instastories on top of Excel, which is very funny because LinkedIn everyone's doing stories now.
Tommy Jackett: [00:04:10] Ah, yes.
Josh Janssen: [00:04:11] So it's very hard to explain to me.
Tommy Jackett: [00:04:13] Well, that was,
Josh Janssen: [00:04:14] that's a very funny main,
Tommy Jackett: [00:04:17] yeah. I mean, there's something about memes that you, I mean, they're just that visual,
Josh Janssen: [00:04:20] where do you send them to, if you get a funny, funny meme. Where do you, where do you send it to, do you have like a group that you send it to, or
Tommy Jackett: [00:04:28] I'm just trying to think if I've seen.
Cause that was such a thing. I reckon it was like a 2012 for me, 2012, no, 2013, 2014, like abusive. The amount of memes you'd send to friends or people. Like I sent videos these days. Like for instance, I follow this. Instagram account called mad Monday three, six, five. And it's like an Australian. Page sent around mad Monday, which is the loose units who've played footy or rugby the Monday after the season finishes that just, they go, hell, hell for leather.
Or if they've lost in there out of the finals, they go, you know, Monday, they just, I don't know why they chose Monday, but, um, it's quite famous, you know, in Victoria, especially, uh, and around Australia, but there's just, is it
Josh Janssen: [00:05:20] because is it Monday they pick Monday because it's the first week, day. Like the grand finals finished.
What else are they going to do?
Tommy Jackett: [00:05:31] It's like an IDEO. I, why is a roster day off in the tradie world falls on a Monday. It's like a legit thing. Every fortnight or every month. You're 90 hours. And I dunno why it falls on Monday. It's just for the weekend, I guess, but why Monday? Look, that's semantics. The, um, the page just has funny stuff of like just two girls trying to fight a police officer on st.
Kilda beach and they're in G strings and they're getting pepper sprayed. It's hilarious. And there's just everyone just in the background, just clapping the place. Like it's, it's kind of like. The worst of the worst. Did you definitely come
Josh Janssen: [00:06:09] work out? You can sort of in the suggested section of Instagram, you can see when you've been active on the daily.
Tommy Jackett: [00:06:16] no, this is mine. This is on my page. No, but I mean, I see my brother,
Josh Janssen: [00:06:21] I think that the residual effect of you spending any time on the daily talk show does have some form of impact. A lot of, lot of, uh, A of lifting weights is what they're there. There's, there's a lot there's um,
Tommy Jackett: [00:06:35] yeah, I like it. I like it.
Yeah, no, we follow a few people. So there's a guy, Calum Von Morgan, who looks like animals Watson again, and he's built like a brick shit house. Like Arnold Schwartzenegger grew up in Victoria, just down the, down the coast, but he he's a, quite a successful bodybuilder. He leaves out of in the States. But the problem is you follow one of them.
And if you're looking through their staff, it is a weird thing. Like. Dude's into bodybuilders, just admiring a man's physique,
Josh Janssen: [00:07:05] like which you are
Tommy Jackett: [00:07:08] exactly right. I, you know, when I worked in gyms hung around with serious bodybuilders, some who would one, you know,
Josh Janssen: [00:07:15] what's the first thing you look for.
Tommy Jackett: [00:07:18] It depends on, you know, the cemetery cemetery.
Josh Janssen: [00:07:23] So you want to make sure that he's left. Bicep is as big as he's arrived. Is that what you're talking about? Well,
Tommy Jackett: [00:07:27] yeah, I mean, that's, that's the sign of a good physique. You don't have some upper torso that looks like a fucking, you know, a stingray sprawled out. And then the legs are just looking like pins.
But anyway, but Oh yeah. So maybe I was watching yesterday, this guy, who's a, what? He had a video called, um, Tell me any other, show me another bodybuilder slash um, strong man doing this. And then it was just him doing back flips and shit that you wouldn't think of. Muscly guy would be doing. He's like ginormous.
Anyway, I took that and another guy I follow. Um, a TIFF, a TIFF. I think it is
Josh Janssen: [00:08:11] your favorite feature about artists.
Tommy Jackett: [00:08:13] Well, a TIF I met, um, he's he was, he was, I don't think he does anymore. He was a ticket inspector.
Josh Janssen: [00:08:21] Ah, yeah.
Tommy Jackett: [00:08:21] People, you don't like the people, you don't want it rocking up to your car and putting a ticket on when you just run to get a coffee.
And next minute, you've paid 98 bucks for the coffee, but if you came back to your car and the TIF was putting a ticket on your car, You would keep your fucking mouth shut because the tip is a pro bodybuilder. You have to win your pro card as a, so you go through some sort of smaller competitions, but then you can enter it.
You know, you might qualify for a competition that if you win, you get your pro card. And I've got some friends that have got pro cards and the TIFF who I. Quickly became friends with based on, um, you're not wanting to fuck with him. He was the friendliest dude though. It'd be walking around, always smiling, just like he's just ginormous gums out, just, you know, putting tickets on people's cars.
And then I'm, I sort of became friends with him, saw him at Nando's once had a good chat, made some banter about how he was eating two, two whole chickens, you know, but then I follow him and so. Yeah, he seems good. He seems big. He seems ginormous, not in the ticket game anymore.
Josh Janssen: [00:09:28] What do you think impresses you the most though?
Like, if you were to say like, if you were to, ah, your favorite feature on a guy, I love it because this is, this is you. This is what you start, stop trying to live away from. No, you you're. The one that is on Instagram. Look like this. Yeah. What is your favorite feature?
Tommy Jackett: [00:09:53] Quads are great. Like if you've got a good set of quads, you know, it's um, and the, and you can see all four of the muscles.
Josh Janssen: [00:10:02] Yeah.
Tommy Jackett: [00:10:03] You know, like it's a that's that's nice. Also good chest. Just
Josh Janssen: [00:10:09] Mason. Mason talks about his chest.
Tommy Jackett: [00:10:12] Yeah. Mason's still got a baby chest though. He hasn't been formed yet. Like give it a couple of years of some heavy lifting in a pop out, but chest and delts, chest and delts. I mean, admire a good, a good back.
Really seeing the rhomboids. If you can see your rhomboids,
Josh Janssen: [00:10:29] geez. For a guy who was pushing back on it, you named a fair few bits. What about calf muscles?
Tommy Jackett: [00:10:36] Uh, yeah. I mean, an impressive pair of carves is impressive. That's why it's you'd label it. Impressive. But look, it doesn't, I mean, it doesn't mean to be overweight and have good calves.
Yeah, sure. Which I don't think
Josh Janssen: [00:10:51] because of the. Because I'm essentially just walking around with weights type of thing, you know?
Tommy Jackett: [00:10:57] Yeah. Abs as well, you like
Josh Janssen: [00:11:01] abs
Tommy Jackett: [00:11:03] you end up just describing the physique. You could never have, but you want for yourself. Yeah. Anyway.
Josh Janssen: [00:11:10] Um, I, uh, I sent Mason a meme last night. Um, it's someone doing a tweet and says you either learn to drive at 17 slash 18 or you're pretty whichever well use license.
Tommy Jackett: [00:11:26] He's a pretty boy now. He's not a pretty boy. He's pretty. And he's a boy. So he's a pretty boy actually. Um, No, just on 2020, what a year, what a year, I'm listening to some sort of, some of my meditation stuff and a good thought is what, uh, uh, what if you had nothing to solve? So you wake up and you, and you constantly, like, let's say the problem solving, or if you lost in thought, you're thinking about stuff that.
Isn't right. What you want to do. And I've just found this quite powerful, which is why I wanted to share with you. It's like, Thinking having a moment. And it's not to say that you actually don't have anything to solve. Cause you might have some shit, especially if you're a maths teacher, you know, or if you're doing a maths class, you need to solve something.
So it's not that it's in reality, you've got nothing, but giving yourself a moment in each day where you actually let go and think about, okay, what if I have nothing to solve? And you realize how much problem solving your doing. Just in a moment where you're not even thinking about needing to solve, you don't think you're, you know, you're just sitting down.
It's like, you get lost in thought thinking about, Oh, but I need to do dinner and think about how much time you've spent. I mean, everyone really just thinking about what I'm going to have for dinner and that version of problem solving. Yeah. So it goes from the small level to like, how do I, if I can get out of debt?
Josh Janssen: [00:12:55] Well, think about editing. Think about like, um, yeah. When we're editing a video, how many clips are you using? How are you forming it all? What are you like? There are so many decisions that you're making. I definitely feel that I get to a point where I can't make any more decisions.
Tommy Jackett: [00:13:14] Hmm. Yeah. It's definitely fatigue in your mind or you just like it's it's fucking Burt.
Josh Janssen: [00:13:24] So what was the meditation? How did it, how did it sort of.
Tommy Jackett: [00:13:28] Just, it's just embodying the feeling of, I don't have anything to solve and you can pick it up when you're done, pick it up after 10 minutes, but it's that the moment that you can feel inside, or you can have a sensation where it's, you've lost, you've drops, the problem solving sort of it's you've taken the foot off that pedal.
Josh Janssen: [00:13:51] Yeah. Well, I think that there's, I was talking to mates about it the other day around the social anxiety. For me, social anxiety is a problem solving anxiety around being like, yeah. Okay. Uh, I need to keep the conversation going. I need to do this. I need to be making sure that everyone's comfortable or that sort of thing.
I definitely feel that pressure going into like Christmas parties or events where it's like, whenever I go somewhere, I feel the pressure of the room around like, okay, is everyone having fun? What's going on? Like, is everyone talking? And so there is an element where. If you can say hashtag not my problem and just go with it.
It feels so weird though. Have you, like, I've done it before where I've gone to a party or I've gone to an event where I'm like, I'm not going to lead this. I'm just going to sit back and it feels like I'm being weird. It feels like I'm just like. Yeah. Well, you gonna say
Tommy Jackett: [00:14:53] I so true. So it's like, if you're the person who naturally tries to grab hold of the wheel, that like you were talking about social setting.
And so it's like, for me, it would be if we were going out with friends and. No one really thought about where we're doing and I'd organized, you know, let's go, let's meet here, but then you get the assumed position of you're leading the night. And so the problem with doing that over and over is that you then try and take over someone else's night.
Oh, you like it. You go out with friends and then you just, you're trying to spearhead the next move. But that's all problem solving as well. And so you can get trapped in it. And so there's similar vibe is if I just like, I'm not going to, I mean, it's even, um, backseat driving. If you're with somebody in a car, like, think about what that, where that comes from.
If you're like, no, let's go this way. Instead of that way, it's like about
Josh Janssen: [00:15:56] organizing, just like the other thing, like, I remember testing this out where I might come up with fucking organizing everything. I'm just going to not organize anything. So what happens. You started doing anything, but isn't it funny when people were like, Oh, when are we going to do something?
It's like, you know, you can organize something as well.
Tommy Jackett: [00:16:12] There is, we've all got made. So don't organize shit. And whether you've been the enabler of their non organization, because you've organized it. That's somebody else's decide, but then that's the heartbeat. When you go, you cap the expectation on other people to organize stuff.
That's when we can get into some murky water and you can start getting dark on you mates because they don't fucking call me.
Josh Janssen: [00:16:38] That's why I have issues with like too many, even I felt it like in the middle of the year, when we were doing all of the Friday night drinks, the bigger that these things. Gosh, it was so many problems.
I was like, cause I'm seeing everyone's face. And so I'm like, is this person happy? Is this you're having messages with everyone yet? Like it becomes, I think that my limit from a social. Setting like a table perspective is six.
Tommy Jackett: [00:17:05] Well, I think here's something for you. There's not a chance in hell. You would have organized a Friday night drinks.
In-person with 50 people every
Josh Janssen: [00:17:15] Friday night. We
Tommy Jackett: [00:17:17] put it that way. Yeah. You're concerned about people you've never
Josh Janssen: [00:17:20] met. Yeah. And DJ and DJ
Tommy Jackett: [00:17:23] the whole thing and DJ, and getting criticism about the music choices and, and being a bit pissed. And, you know, it's, it's um,
Josh Janssen: [00:17:32] it's, uh, yeah,
Tommy Jackett: [00:17:35] it is, it is. Now there is a limit, like I'm organizing a lunch with somites in a couple of weeks time and.
I'm S I'm shooting out some text messages and you get a group message. No, not group messages. It's not big enough to warrant a group message. I don't think that would, I wouldn't like a group message. So I'm not fucking sending your group. Yes. And
Josh Janssen: [00:17:59] so when you are doing, when you are organizing this, do you feel the pressure?
So when you are organizing it, one of the advantages is. You can, you can leave out people that give you the shits, but it can be an unpopular thing to do. So it's this fine line of like, not pissing anyone off. This is why this is the problematic thing of like big groups, because it's like the, the thing with groups.
If you think that groups like using that example, have you got a very specific group where it's like, okay, it's these four people, or could
Tommy Jackett: [00:18:33] it be
Josh Janssen: [00:18:34] five, six, seven.
Tommy Jackett: [00:18:35] That was up until I was maybe 19. That that was the case where it was you've got, I think it comes out of school a lot of the time as well, the groups, you know, those four people that you're with every weekend.
And it's like, that is the, that is the vibe when you're hanging out with the group of the four. And so I remember being sort of shown that of a few of those types of groups and I was like, Oh, whatever, when started what happened?
Josh Janssen: [00:19:04] Had you been shunned down,
Tommy Jackett: [00:19:06] ah, you know, just a few egos flying about just some insecurities ends up full circle, may sort of running another circle over here where that ends up being cool.
Josh Janssen: [00:19:16] to the heaven without really respect, triceps and fucking
Tommy Jackett: [00:19:22] man, abs just, you know, they appreciate some good traps, you know, that's what we want now, but, um, the feeling of. Then it was the feeling of, Oh, well, if I don't, if I'll have, if I invite him, I have to invite him nowadays. I haven't seen enough people consistently that we don't, there's no group.
So I just, it's just like a random whoever's in my space at this moment. So it doesn't mean anything if you're upset that you haven't been invited to a lunch. Just ask. Can I come?
Josh Janssen: [00:19:52] And I'm never doing that.
Tommy Jackett: [00:19:53] No, but that's what I'm saying. I don't, I don't, I don't have anyone that would be upset or ask me that.
So it's pretty helpful.
Josh Janssen: [00:20:03] It's all good. I got the shit on. When is it?
Tommy Jackett: [00:20:10] we're getting up.
Josh Janssen: [00:20:12] I've got something to the 12th every year. Every month for the next year, which is crazy,
Tommy Jackett: [00:20:17] but, um, yeah,
Josh Janssen: [00:20:20] that'd be fun. Which pub are you going to
Tommy Jackett: [00:20:22] Mount Erica. Oh yeah. What
Josh Janssen: [00:20:25] are they known for?
Tommy Jackett: [00:20:27] Oh, to be honest. So a friend of mine owns it, but okay. We're not getting any handouts. Um, we it's, I, I saw it.
This is why I'm going there. To be honest, I saw an Instagram, someone post a photo of the schnitzel and I'm fucking, it looks good. It looked, you know, that sort of, you get this sort of like slurry salad with it, or just the crumb on it. Crumb looked amazing. I mean that soul, that soul. So
Josh Janssen: [00:20:53] what are you, I don't think we've discussed what you eat.
Over Christmas, like, do you, um, do you crave certain things? Oh, it's Christmas day look like, um,
Tommy Jackett: [00:21:06] I mean last year, it. Bacon eggs in the morning. That's been a thing somehow actually could just cause we were up at Amy's mom's place. She loves getting stuck into that. Um, but there's just a lot of lint, you know, chocolate hanging around in bolt.
Yeah. And there's, you know, there's fucking Toblerones and the next minute.
Josh Janssen: [00:21:26] Chocolate kind of raspberries.
Tommy Jackett: [00:21:28] You don't even like Toblerone that much. Let's be honest. Be honest with yourself. You eat it. Cause it's there. It's there. It's good chocolate tastes good. Those bits get stuck in your teeth though. Are the fuck, are they tough nigger?
Um, and we'd shape, you know, what's going on with that? Why? Well, that's very true, right?
Josh Janssen: [00:21:48] I mean, um, yeah, I'm trying to think of the savory wise. Turkey with mayonnaise, but always have. Yeah, it's really good. Yeah. I don't have Turkey any other time of the year outside, but the other thing too is I saw at once and it comes in like a log or something, you know, those ones
Tommy Jackett: [00:22:09] that is a version of it.
Yeah. Or you can do a full,
Josh Janssen: [00:22:13] full, full Turkey type of thing. Yeah.
Tommy Jackett: [00:22:16] Yeah. Definitely Turkey. So the things that you don't, I mean, Right. I've never been a fan of Christmas pudding. Never.
Josh Janssen: [00:22:24] What is a caramel? I never know what Christmas pudding is.
Tommy Jackett: [00:22:27] No Christmas pudding.
Josh Janssen: [00:22:29] I don't know what it is
Tommy Jackett: [00:22:31] around. Like, you know, the ones that are upside down and then they pour fucking
Josh Janssen: [00:22:34] rum on them.
Like, I think I've never, um, I think we had them back in the day. Yeah. But I never, never have.
Tommy Jackett: [00:22:42] I mean, people love it.
Josh Janssen: [00:22:44] I mean, those are like the, the Cadbury, um, stockings. Smart feel them
Tommy Jackett: [00:22:51] advent calendars. I mean, that's, they're going to be rolled out next week. Start from first, 1st of December, get advent calendar.
Josh Janssen: [00:22:58] Yeah. Yeah. I'm trying to think like the, um, I mean, I, you know, I didn't drink for the first, you know, 28 years of my life just started drinking. What is the, um, what do you drink? During Christmas, like a, you, are you an egg
Tommy Jackett: [00:23:12] lock guy? I think last year I was short because I wasn't drinking this year. Uh, I can't, I can't drink on Christmas day.
I'm too tired, man. For some reason, I'm always talking on Christmas day. Yeah. Just lethargic, you know?
Josh Janssen: [00:23:26] Yeah. It's just a, so many social things. Isn't it?
Tommy Jackett: [00:23:30] that's the Christmas
Josh Janssen: [00:23:31] spirit. Think about, here's an idea. Not doing the social and family things on Christmas. Doing it within the month, but just sort of, uh, maybe, maybe that sort of things that it spreads out longer,
Tommy Jackett: [00:23:49] you don't want to do it. That's why he doesn't mean doing it early. It makes it feel different. There is a different pressure though. We've had a Christmas in July that felt better than any Christmas we've had, which w I think it's just like no stress. It's just was a bit impromptu, like. You get, get it together within a week.
And then next minute, everyone's like in the vibe in a right vibe. Whereas Christmas day, you wake up on the wrong side of the bed or you, you know, it's it
Josh Janssen: [00:24:19] for me, if I think about it, it's like, like the new shirt, like I'm, uh, I've got a new shirt that I'm wearing, like collared shirt. So I put that on like a top dog, you know, and then there's normally, um, Some sort of anxiety about me leaving and certain then Brie will probably crack it and she'll go get coffee and then she'll be ready when I'm back because we've got to leave.
Um, and then I'll probably if I had some sort of gift, so for instance, I mean the bike's going to, going to becoming a lot earlier than that, but yeah. Getting obsessed on things or just working on stuff, I think a few years ago, Maybe three years ago, it was like my YouTube channel looking after my YouTube channel and getting mine.
Yeah. I just, yeah, I definitely feel like I was doing that sort of stuff. And then I remember, um, Uh, I remember one Christmas. We, um, the, it was cash only, I think, at the coffee shop.
Tommy Jackett: [00:25:22] Oh yeah. A lot of, a lot of cafes do that Cassius on Christmas day.
Josh Janssen: [00:25:26] Um, I think they donate it.
Tommy Jackett: [00:25:30] You mean, they don't donate the tax money that they need.
Josh Janssen: [00:25:35] It was all like, um,
Tommy Jackett: [00:25:37] ice one, but I just know a few that like, to keep, get a nice thousand dollars that day. Cause it's so busy in the mornings
Josh Janssen: [00:25:45] and they deserve it this year. Um, the me coughing just reminds me, uh, walking this morning had a big water bottle, started choking on my water, not a good look during COVID.
And so I ended up just like. I ended up actually going off the path and went into the middle of the road and coughed there with my leg, because I was just worried that there's people on both sides of the path. I just didn't. I would prefer to get hit by a car than have someone go. Can you not cough?
Tommy Jackett: [00:26:15] You'd get it. You'd get a bit aggressive, uh, inside the walking with a water bottle necessary.
Josh Janssen: [00:26:23] Yeah. If you want to stay hydrated. Yeah. Yeah. I, um, I have it cause it just, um, it's a good way of unconsciously drinking. You know, it it's, it's a good way of getting it in. I put on a, a podcast, two podcast recommendations.
One is a hidden brain is a great podcast. We just did a, um, what was that? I was still finding it. Um, uh, but the, the podcast episode was all about gratitude. Uh, so I listened to that. And then the other thing I've been listening to is, um, Scott Galloway. He's got a book called post Corona. Interesting dude.
He was the guy who wrote the four, which was, uh, the, um, the book about, it's like a Facebook, Apple, Google, and Amazon at the big four, the big four, the big four. Yeah. Um, and so, uh, yeah, but he was just on a James outages podcast and they were talking about, you know, what the future could look like. Um, Scott Galloway thinks that, uh, A Bain Bay, a primed to pivoting to the commercial real estate space.
Interest is interesting.
Tommy Jackett: [00:27:39] That would destroy it. So like,
Josh Janssen: [00:27:41] yeah. And so, yeah, just like being able to rent spaces and stuff, but they also, um, the, uh, Airbnb, uh, about to IPO. And so they, um, yeah, it's, it's, uh, it's interesting. I, I, the thing with, uh, the market, like all this, like you hear, um, Trump. Saying, Oh, you know, they're down 30,000 points or whatever, whatever the fuck it is.
But the, um, I find it hard to, like, I have no idea on this stuff. I don't understand it at all. And then I think about Mike, but at like the detriment, this so much obsession over that stuff, but it's like, if people are dying, if all this other stuff's happening, like. Is it really a celebration? Is it really like, it's pretty fucked up?
Tommy Jackett: [00:28:28] Yeah. I think you've got a pretty laser focused reality to your side of the equation. Versus the other side,
Josh Janssen: [00:28:37] I watched a Melania Trump get the, um, the Christmas tree. Delivered yesterday.
Tommy Jackett: [00:28:44] That sounds like a good use of time.
Josh Janssen: [00:28:46] Yeah. Yeah. It's just on YouTube, the white house, YouTube channel. She's just standing there as they do.
You know how the Christmas tree comes guess in a box now or
Tommy Jackett: [00:28:57] in the tube?
Josh Janssen: [00:28:58] No, no, that's a fuck off. Like it's a
Tommy Jackett: [00:29:01] real one.
Josh Janssen: [00:29:02] Yeah, probably won't guess now. Horsing cart.
Yeah. Horsing cart. So
Tommy Jackett: [00:29:10] American taxpayer money going to somewhere
Josh Janssen: [00:29:13] where they do all the stuff. Like they, there's so many weird things that happen in the white house. Like even. Uh, not relating to Trump, but just in, in general, they do the, um, the turkeys that they have turkeys that they, um, pardon or whatever.
So turkeys that aren't going to die on Thanksgiving. Have you seen this? If you type in Turkey, Turkey, pardon? You can watch the video of, um,
Tommy Jackett: [00:29:37] I Turkey pattern 2020. Oh my God. It's Trump with a Turkey. Those things are huge. Imagine if it just jumped on his face. It was savagely Jesus. Anyway, anyway.
Josh Janssen: [00:29:49] Anyway.
All right. It's a daily talk show. Enjoy the rest of your day and we'll send them our guys have a good one.
Tommy Jackett: [00:29:54] See you
