Tommy Jackett: [00:00:08] Monday. What is happening in Gronk? What's going on? Uh,
Josh Janssen: [00:00:12] I'm fired up because my bike arrives today. I might have to mute my microphone during the show to take the delivery. Person's call.
Tommy Jackett: [00:00:20] You know, when it's a big day when Joe is putting in his calendar at six till 7:45 AM, bike day, what we're doing in that hour,
Josh Janssen: [00:00:29] we're doing fine up getting ready for it
Tommy Jackett: [00:00:31] to wake up and to start.
Josh Janssen: [00:00:34] Yeah, you might as well. Uh, no, I just, uh, I've actually become an early riser. Have I spoken about this on the show?
Tommy Jackett: [00:00:41] Well, I mean, you've always sort of reason at seven. Mm, I think that's pretty early, dude.
Josh Janssen: [00:00:47] Like come on five 45 natural wake up time.
Tommy Jackett: [00:00:52] Okay. No, so that's pretty early. And so what are you doing at 5:45 AM?
Josh Janssen: [00:00:56] Not much. I was watching the formula one crash. That happened. That was, that was insane. Wasn't it? Um, I was, uh, it just, I was scrolling a little bit woke up and then I'm like, you know what? I'm going to shower. Get ready, watch some YouTube. That was fun, which the video on what different, like what are different influences, um, on YouTube or doing for merge when it comes to like food and drink.
Okay. I hadn't submitted a breakdown. So that was, that was good here. Yeah.
Tommy Jackett: [00:01:26] Yeah. So your dad has been off to a good start, but you, so you just had it in the calendar because your. Your bike is coming.
Josh Janssen: [00:01:32] Yeah. Is that what this is? The exercise bike is coming. And so I'm excited about that. We've got the space ready to go.
Um, everything's good. How was your morning? Yeah,
Tommy Jackett: [00:01:44] I mean, my morning, um, started well, Bodhi sleeps when he sleeps all night, you know, it's a good morning and he was fired up. So he came in. And immediately wanted something to wait. So he went and helped himself to an up and go in the fridge. Um, Amy stash and comes back in and I was like, ah, just have it.
And then I'm
Josh Janssen: [00:02:04] just heinous to how to prick to the, um, Forget with the struggle. What does he need help? No,
Tommy Jackett: [00:02:09] I picked it. I picked it and then they said I had to taste it. I just I'll I'll just go check it.
Josh Janssen: [00:02:14] And
Tommy Jackett: [00:02:15] I had a little sip. Yeah, no worries. That's good. But they not always in the shower and Bodhi comes in and he, and we've got these things in the fridge.
They call drops. Well, we call them drops. They're like some kind of like dummy Chinese herbal concoction of, you know, all different things. They smell very garlicky has in it. And it's, and it's in the, uh, you know, like a little dropper and you put it under your tongue and Bodhi loves him that we it's w we call it, you know, medicine.
So it's that better? You can have your, you drops anyway. I, I I'm in the shower and he comes in, he says, dad, can you get the drops? Get the drops. He's got them in your hand. And he, he passes it to me. And let me tell you, this liquid of these drops is dark. It's black. If you go to an, a white t-shirt, you're done it's it would stay like, you know, it, you would wipe off the initial bit and then I'll just leave.
It looked like coffee,
Josh Janssen: [00:03:09] to be honest. Yeah. It's like a petrol.
Tommy Jackett: [00:03:13] I grabbed it. sorry, Ellie and garlicky. Like I've had this before, when I've been a bit sick and my mum gives them to me. I'd, I'd never buy this stuff, but I just go with mum's flow and I, and I, I hope they do something, but I'd never buy them. And I've like sweat been sick and sweated.
And I recognize sweating garlic out of my pores. Like I smell like garlic,
Josh Janssen: [00:03:35] actually potty trig, Bryce Paris can ate a raw garlic. No problem. The mince garlic, when we were the two weeks ago, she was at our place, had a couple of gins. Well, I ate it and she just like a whole spoonful
And so anyway, you've got the, so he's trying to hand
Tommy Jackett: [00:03:58] it to me. So he hands them to me. This is a dropout, you know what a drop, it looks like
Josh Janssen: [00:04:02] B orange drops and stuff.
Tommy Jackett: [00:04:04] I grabbed the fucking dropper from the top of the orange.
Josh Janssen: [00:04:08] Oh no.
Tommy Jackett: [00:04:10] And I pull it towards me, cause this is how I usually pick them up and he's undone it
Josh Janssen: [00:04:16] on and he's
Tommy Jackett: [00:04:16] let go.
He's done what he needed to do. Let go in the bathroom, just hits the ground. Doesn't smash. But you know, when like a bottle hits and it shoots out liquid is things sprayed, look like a murder scene in the bathroom and I'm just like, Oh no, like we've got, we've got like a lighter. What a lighter gray, um, lineup vinyl in the bathroom.
And I'm like, Oh no, this is going to stain. And so, um, then I get out of the shower. I'm scrubbing the floor. Fuck. That was my morning. But other than that, he was an angel. He
Josh Janssen: [00:04:54] didn't have any left.
Tommy Jackett: [00:04:57] Yeah, because there's the bottle kind of has its little curve. And then to the lid, there was like, whatever would sit in the sort of curvature part of it.
It's like any bottle there's always a bit left in there. If you just drop it, unless you pour it upside down anyway. So we still have a bit of mum's drops, but mum need some more if you're listening.
Josh Janssen: [00:05:17] Is it from the naturopath?
Tommy Jackett: [00:05:20] Yeah. There's this guy cooks it up. He likes he does it himself. Great. He, he, um, boils up a VAT.
So it's all, it's always a different flavor. You know, it's either stronger or lighter or somewhere in between, like a bit, it always tastes different depending on the batch.
Josh Janssen: [00:05:37] Well, I'm going to become the Cod liver guy, uh, Cod liver oil guy, guy. But interestingly I'd been, I had had it on my list for ages to buy this stuff that serves recommended.
I went to buy it yesterday. It's not a capsule. Like I was expecting like capsules or something like that. It is liquid that you put into a teaspoon and then. Dazzle down.
Tommy Jackett: [00:06:03] Interestingly, it comes as an oil, but then, so this fish oil tablets, and I can get them. When I think JJ, you can get black Moe's immune support, Cod liver oil thousand milligram tabs.
Like, um, you can get capsules. Yeah.
Josh Janssen: [00:06:17] Have you ever done the, um, sort of drinking liquid? Of any sort
Tommy Jackett: [00:06:24] who, what monster is getting the Cod liver oil to drink? Because
Josh Janssen: [00:06:29] that's what my, it would be apparently. Yeah, no happy
Tommy Jackett: [00:06:33] burping.
Josh Janssen: [00:06:34] Like if you have, if you have,
Tommy Jackett: [00:06:37] if you have just normal fish oil, like whatever, whatever that whatever's in that, that just being specific about the tight now.
Um, I remember burping and
Josh Janssen: [00:06:49] what is it, what does it taste like?
Tommy Jackett: [00:06:50] Feels like you've just been to the field. Good
Josh Janssen: [00:06:53] but efficient chip shops. All right.
Tommy Jackett: [00:06:55] Not without the fried goodness on the outside, like it's, it's no good. I mean, you're doing it for health. I'm not, I'm not taking these drops for, for a little bit of something,
Josh Janssen: [00:07:05] you know?
So talking about like, you're doing it for health, there's a, a book that, um, uh, uh, GB recommended that I've, um, I've been reading. I've just forgotten the name of it. It's got connected. What is it? The, um, it's about, uh, it's like, why are you depressed? What
Tommy Jackett: [00:07:26] are you in JV?
Josh Janssen: [00:07:29] Let me something else. And then I just, um, and he said, Oh, you've read this book.
Haven't you? I was like, Oh no, I haven't. And so I picked it up, uh, over the weekend. It's called lost connections. Why you're depressed and how to find hope. Right. If you've seen the title, you've seen that if you, if you see the, uh, uh, cover you, you probably would have seen it around anyway, the power of placebos.
Yeah. It's a real mind thinking that this something will work. And the thing is. Uh, like I've never been a real, like a drug guy. I don't like taking, I've taken probably I haven't taken any pain killer this year. I don't think I would go
Tommy Jackett: [00:08:15] in. It's pretty amazing.
Josh Janssen: [00:08:16] Yeah. Thank you.
Tommy Jackett: [00:08:18] I did one last night.
Josh Janssen: [00:08:21] That was your morning routine.
Wasn't it. It's not too. Um, kind of don't know. So I
Tommy Jackett: [00:08:26] don't one drop one.
Josh Janssen: [00:08:27] And so I haven't like, I'm not really sure into medication when I was a kid I've told this story before mum would threaten that she was going to take me to the doctor because she's said that I probably have ADHD. I love that we never, never did anything about it.
It was just like, Josh, you've got ADHD. And if you're not careful, you're going to the doctors and we get you something we're going to drag you up
Tommy Jackett: [00:08:49] proof in the pudding,
Josh Janssen: [00:08:50] placebo,
Tommy Jackett: [00:08:52] you were threatened and you thought, fuck it.
Josh Janssen: [00:08:54] I better fix myself in there. Also, the interesting thing is the, uh, if you've ever thought about, um, medication or anything like that, when it comes to depression, anxiety, I would highly recommend the book because it talks about the big pharma, big pharmaceutical companies, how dodgy the whole thing is and how most of the impact in this book anyway.
Hmm, they talk about it being a placebo, which obviously there's a bunch of people who are getting great benefits from antidepressants.
Tommy Jackett: [00:09:34] It could be somewhere coming. It could be a part part bill CBO that he's actually going on, which is still working at that point. Right?
Josh Janssen: [00:09:42] Yeah. But then you're also getting all these other side effects.
You got to think about the side effects and all that sort of thing. And so then I, I wonder these things like these natural remedies. Seemed like a good option. So I was thinking with the, um, so my back feels sore a bunch, and I was like, you know, w as I'm going to start riding heaps, I want to make sure that I'm feeling good.
And so I was thinking I'm going to get the Cod liver oil staff and start taking that because even if it's not doing anything for my back, I really believe that it will, like, I think it will. And so if I just keep saying it's going to fucking hell, like I'm going to be so fucking fired up, then my back will start to feel better.
Tommy Jackett: [00:10:31] Yeah. I feel you it's. I mean, if you're not the medicine guy it's, I don't think it translates to just Herb's like, you know, doing multivitamins is
Josh Janssen: [00:10:41] necessarily like, so for instance,
Tommy Jackett: [00:10:45] In that realm is what I'm saying. Like someone who would take a Cod liver tablet is willing to take a multivitamin as well.
Sure. Very similar. Like you're playing with the same.
Josh Janssen: [00:10:56] Don't you think I need to be in the multivitamin guy.
Tommy Jackett: [00:10:58] Nah, nah, not the multivitamin guy. I mean, start there, start there, go a vitamin C, get that up intake. Maybe then bring some greens powder in next. You'll be living on a fucking powders and pills.
Josh Janssen: [00:11:11] Doc Scott couldn't imagine me doing that.
Tommy Jackett: [00:11:15] Well, I could imagine you, I mean, you will be the old guy with Monday to Sunday tablet holder.
I said I would not take anything, but take something every three hours
Josh Janssen: [00:11:31] that seems a bit full on.
Tommy Jackett: [00:11:32] I mean, that's probably all of us at some point.
Josh Janssen: [00:11:36] Have you, have you been to the optometrist before?
Tommy Jackett: [00:11:39] When I was young, I, um, It was, you know, every kid, I think at some point thinks that having glasses is cool or like, I mean, all you're the complete opposite.
Um, but I think there is a portion of people that are like, Like, I want glasses. Like I want to be that person with classes. And so, um, you know, I slid him a 50 under the table and said, you know, just like, you know, tell him my mama and clean his glasses. But no, I, it was very, a very long time ago. I'm trying to just recall.
I can't like, I can't even remember doing the test. I remember being in a room looking at sort of things on the, you know, the, like the letters on the thing. Yeah. But I mean, it's probably different now, is it. Oh,
Josh Janssen: [00:12:21] still got the exact same sort of thing they do have
Tommy Jackett: [00:12:26] broken.
Josh Janssen: [00:12:27] Yeah. Well, they have new tech when it comes to lenses.
You're talking to me about anti fatigue and things like that. If anyone's got anti-fatigue glasses,
Tommy Jackett: [00:12:38] I guess there is. So you can, you can get headaches from your eyes. Like there can be issues there. Strain can, cause are they saying that fatigue can come from fatigue as in your eyes are tired or it causes your body fatigue?
Josh Janssen: [00:12:54] high fatigue. Fatigue.
Tommy Jackett: [00:12:56] Okay. Okay. What would be told that? What, what is like if you did a day without glasses, cause you got some solid ones, like, like S. Snow solid is in you look like, you know, a kid who's just been given his grandfather's classes and said, you have to deal with these ones, this stylish.
Josh Janssen: [00:13:16] Yeah. When you put them on, they've been shaved down. Well, yeah, like if I take my glasses off my eyes, I've got little lies. Screw to Derrick said goodnight, diamond dies. When the, I
Tommy Jackett: [00:13:29] think it's because yeah. Oh my
Josh Janssen: [00:13:31] It doesn't say magnifies. Yeah. It's all like
Tommy Jackett: [00:13:35] you actually are living a lie.
Josh Janssen: [00:13:39] You face shit.
Tommy Jackett: [00:13:40] Face tuned it every day. Um, um, so. It, it, it, I put your glasses on. I'm like, Holy shit. I mean, another world that's makes you feel great. So what it makes you feel great.
Josh Janssen: [00:13:56] It's not some sort of like trip it's just helping me say, but I don't completely understand. I still don't know. I think I'm long sighted.
This is a thing, I don't know if I'm shortsighted long side. Sorry,
Tommy Jackett: [00:14:11] can you see something close to you? Well, or something further away? Cause I thought it was the opposite long sided. Is that you, um, can't say something close to you
Josh Janssen: [00:14:22] short. I should know. I have no idea, but so this is the thing. So apparently I've got two things wrong with me.
Don't more than that, but two that they've been able to sort of put, put a finger on. And, um, so this anti fatigue is like a gradient, not, not like a colored gradient. It's like a, when you look down, it almost sounds like bifocals. I just don't know what the difference is. When you look down and you get a better reading experience.
And when you look up, you're seeing more sort of the, um, the whole new world, which I don't, I don't completely understand how it all works, because I did see the, um, uh, the, the screenwriter, Aaron Sorkin, when he does the masterclass. One of the things that I like one of his quirks or something like I can get behind this.
Is, he has regular glasses and then he has reading glasses. And so he has reading glasses around his neck and he's got like switches between them. And I sort of liked the theater of it. I liked the idea of being like, Oh, I need to read something, take the other glasses off, put them on. Um, but uh, the optometrist was thinking that was a bit ridiculous.
Tommy Jackett: [00:15:34] You went and they were giving you your options. Okay, done. Sorry, what kind of questions did they ask you? You, I mean, You don't like banter in a setting of that kind on a podcast. Yeah, sure. You go for hours, but I mean, it's quite, I mean, it's, this is more invasive than a hairdresser. They're probably up close looking at your eyes or are they looking in a machine?
Like, are they putting it strapping you into some kind of, well, the thing is
Josh Janssen: [00:16:01] part of it is I think that the thing with hairdressers. Or barbers is there's a hipster factor. And I think it's the hipster. I think that there's something that I can, I can talk to an optometrist. I feel like, like I,
Tommy Jackett: [00:16:16] because they're less qualified.
They haven't gone
Josh Janssen: [00:16:18] to university. No, no, no, no, no, no, no. The optometry at night, I just feel. Like the banter level is so low in general that anything that I do or wow. Them. Um,
Tommy Jackett: [00:16:35] and one wow factor for me. One wow.
Josh Janssen: [00:16:37] Factor. Okay. So I said, um, uh, S sat down, she said, have you got your Medicare card? I said, no, I don't actually.
And she said, okay, no, that's fine. I just need to make sure that your name is exactly as it is on your Medicare. And I said, Oh, actually, um, I'm still on my, uh, family, like my parents, Medicare. Is that going to be a problem? She's like, Nana, you said like, Oh, your date of birth. And I said, you know, 14th and ninth, 1990.
And then I said, yeah, yeah, too old to still be on family, Medicare card, you know? And she said, no, no, she's like, I'm married. And like, I still haven't got mine updated. It's been like three years. And so like, it was, it was great banter. And then, um, What else did we talk about? The funny thing was that we, we were, we went to, um, I go to a place in the city.
What's it called? I'll give them a plug because they are great. Fuck. What is it? Optic something upticks in, um, QV.
Tommy Jackett: [00:17:40] Are you sent Harry there to pick up your classes? Once? Did I really, was that him? Was that him? He picked her up
Josh Janssen: [00:17:46] from, Oh, no, that was no, no. He went to go freeze. What was it called? Nelson's.
Nelson's in any way.
It's a Nelson's optic. Can you look up Nelson's optic the most memorable? No, no, no. They're very good. Nelson's updates.
Tommy Jackett: [00:18:07] What makes it not? What makes it good optometrist?
Josh Janssen: [00:18:10] No, it's not Nelson.
Tommy Jackett: [00:18:12] Other than just one that does what they
Josh Janssen: [00:18:15] need to do. This is going to annoy me cause not Nelson's cause that's Bailey Nelson.
It's not Bailey Nelson QV optics. Her name just says Henderson's Henderson's Hendersons Henderson's is what they call. They re they do real Primo, Primo, Primo, Primo, um, classes. Anyway, the, um, uh, what was I saying about them? Great. Bang. Your head. Really good is in there. Did the whole Medicare thing. Oh, this was the thing.
So I told her like, uh, we were in the city all day and we decided at like 1230, then I would go and check out some new glasses found some that I liked. They said you haven't had your, um, eyes tested since, uh, 2017. So you need to get them tested. Before, we're going to get into your art classes. I pushed back last time.
I remember, and they just gave me my old ones. I'm like, come on guys. It should be fine. I said, no, you should, should get tested. So I did, but the appointment wasn't until three 30. So we have three hours that we had to do something in the city. So we're doing all of that stuff and they embrace it to them.
Are could I actually book for an appointment too? Might as well. And so Brie booked in straight after me. Correct. But the stitch up was that I was telling the optometrist, I'm like, yeah, a bit over there. Shopping and all that sort of thing. And then Bri comes out of airplanes. Ah, I've told Patricia, I said, you ready to go home?
Well, you know that there's no surprise of that. Um, but, uh,
Tommy Jackett: [00:19:46] it was the same. They don't have the same, um, you know, client, client, doctor,
Josh Janssen: [00:19:51] patient. Yeah. Doctors do well. The funny thing was because I was ready to go and, um, I said, uh, um, okay. Yeah, they said breeze next I'd finished early. And I said, I'll call her.
And the optometrist says, Oh, I'm going to go and sterilize everything. I'm like, nah, don't bother. I'm like, we live together. That's fine. So I still will, but I was just trying to rush this shit up, you know, just see what a lot of time hacks.
Tommy Jackett: [00:20:22] I feel like you don't have a problem with optometry going to the optometrist.
Josh Janssen: [00:20:25] I like optometrists. I asked them questions. I see. So what, you know, what does that mean? Am I answering? I think I say knowing things like, am I answering them right? Because the thing is it's like they double check things.
Tommy Jackett: [00:20:40] Yes.
Josh Janssen: [00:20:41] And then like, she was getting me to do one thing and she would like to the few times, I'm like, why do you keep doing that?
She's like, all right,
Tommy Jackett: [00:20:49] clear this up for you. Short-sightedness is the exact opposite of long sightedness and means your near vision ability to see things up close is clear while you're long vision ability to see things in the distance is blurry, which is still kind of a bit confusing. I don't know,
Josh Janssen: [00:21:10] to be honest, my eyes, my eyes look like.
I think that I could live a life without glasses. What
Tommy Jackett: [00:21:19] do you mean? But I mean, some people will live a life.
Josh Janssen: [00:21:22] No, but I seriously, I can actually, I can actually say. I can say fingers. I can say
Tommy Jackett: [00:21:29] glasses on.
Josh Janssen: [00:21:31] No, no, no, no. With the glasses off is what I'm saying.
Tommy Jackett: [00:21:34] So, sorry, just to clarify, because they kind of that information, they lead with another thing and then they sort of switch it.
Andy says, if you're long sighted, you find it more difficult to see clear, clearly clear objects that are close to you. Yeah. So I've always sort of gone the opposite so long sighted is stuff. Close to you. That's clear is hard. You struggle. And then vice versa. Short-sided and so which one I.
Josh Janssen: [00:22:05] I actually don't know.
I think I'm, um, I shouldn't say far away. I can't see far away.
Tommy Jackett: [00:22:10] Okay. Far away. So then you're,
Josh Janssen: [00:22:13] can't see that close either. That's right. I mean, what's counted far away.
Tommy Jackett: [00:22:21] I also keep
Josh Janssen: [00:22:22] focus things in. I can focus. What are you very confusing.
Tommy Jackett: [00:22:26] If you were a lens, if you're a, let's go a bit nerdy. If you're a. What kind of a lens would you be just out the box, fix a, um, you don't have zoom function.
Josh Janssen: [00:22:37] I'm not, I'm a 15 minutes. Um,
Tommy Jackett: [00:22:42] Canon Sydney lens, or are you seeing,
Josh Janssen: [00:22:44] um, 50 male, one point. Yeah, I can. Can you do that? Can you actually look at your, like, say, if you look at the microphone, if you move back about 10 centimeters, if you move back, can you see the microphone in focus and then blur everything else out?
Tommy Jackett: [00:22:59] Yes. Can you do it? Just do it. Hold a finger up and look at your finger. And the background blows. I literally have done this before. If you make a
Josh Janssen: [00:23:07] connection, I might have, if you make,
Tommy Jackett: [00:23:09] if you make videos, And you play with cameras that have lenses that have more control than your iPhone. Actually, your iPhone can actually do it, just press on the subject and it blows the background.
It's it is mimicking the eye. That's what the cameras are doing.
Josh Janssen: [00:23:25] This is getting real weird. Thanks. This is getting real weird.
Tommy Jackett: [00:23:28] I just quickly, yeah, I just looking at you doing that silly thing. Cross-eyed thing where you're holding, like you went cross-eyed then maybe those books I'd always go for them in the library and they had some wacky shapes and shit going on and you hold it up close to your eyes and you'd slowly draw it back.
And it would, if you, if you did it correctly, It took me fucking 30 minutes to try and get the C, but then you could see this 3d shit going on.
Josh Janssen: [00:23:58] Do you remember those books? I do remember them. Yeah.
Tommy Jackett: [00:24:00] They were sick.
Josh Janssen: [00:24:02] I feel like the, um, It's the closest thing that you can get to hard drugs at a library. Isn't it?
The trip, the trip is the trip. Is there in the library, you know? Yeah.
Tommy Jackett: [00:24:15] I mean, that would be good.
Josh Janssen: [00:24:16] What did you do on the weekend
Tommy Jackett: [00:24:17] while intoxicated? Um, Oh, here's one for you. We, um, this is, I think everyone in Melbourne did this, the lockdown, uh,
Josh Janssen: [00:24:26] what,
Tommy Jackett: [00:24:28] what can we throw out? What can we throw out there is, uh, we you've got time and there's shit around you and you're willing to sort it out, but then there's no where to go and take it.
So you either do a hard rubbish to get rid of the stuff that actually is junk. And then you've got the stuff you want to give away. And then there's a fine line about what's in that. And box that could be given Y that could actually be binned, but we did end up giving a lot away. I took it to the office and put it in the garage while we were in lockdown.
Cause, cause it was when we were moving and then the Salvos closed down, they weren't accepting donations and then they opened up and then now we're accepting donations twice a week, but they had to put the things into quarantine for four days or something like that. So they were literally putting.
Josh Janssen: [00:25:18] chorus, spraying them down. I
Tommy Jackett: [00:25:20] wonder, I don't know. I don't know, but it was too much for me when they said, look, you have to come at this exact time and it's only this. I was like, nah. And so we held off and then over the weekend on set on Saturday, I was like, Perfect. We're going down to my mom's place.
I know this awesome spot where you can drive in and there's people there waiting to hand over stuff. We've given, I've given stuff there before, and we got there and there was like one other car. And I was like, Oh, this is perfect. And. I packed up the car, but we'd also taken stuff from home as well. And I grabbed some
Josh Janssen: [00:25:57] stuff and stuff that you weren't trying to don't know.
Tommy Jackett: [00:26:00] I'll say I grabbed some shorts that I needed to exercise in a mom and dad's place put them with the bag that I was actually throwing into
Josh Janssen: [00:26:08] on
Tommy Jackett: [00:26:10] I get to the house after we've dropped it off. I mean, have you seen my shorts? I fucking mustard. Most of them brought them. She's like,
Josh Janssen: [00:26:17] no, you're joking.
Tommy Jackett: [00:26:19] The purple ones.
I was like, yeah. Yes. Your
Josh Janssen: [00:26:21] favorite purple shorts. Those shorts.
Tommy Jackett: [00:26:26] They were on the bag. I deer they're on the bank. They weren't in the back on top of the bag.
Josh Janssen: [00:26:31] Oh my God. What are you going to do?
Tommy Jackett: [00:26:34] Uh, buy some new ones.
Josh Janssen: [00:26:38] So how about on the short front whilst I was getting my eyes checked, Bri had bought me some shorts from Nike.
Some running shorts. The thing is they've got undies inside them. Can you give me the, the full sort of thing on Andy's in shorts? What's the deal?
Tommy Jackett: [00:26:56] It depends. So the problem with the undies in shorts is you almost need a way Randy's in them not briefs because I've had problems with having it like an Andi shape and then wearing briefs that go low, lower down.
And so just free ball in them, sun just. I
Josh Janssen: [00:27:15] mean, they've got, yeah. So this is the thing. Yeah. So I was trying to work out. And so then does that mean that you just have to be more vigilant on, is vigilant the right word for what I mean, but I slippage no, no, no, no, no, not vigilant. Um, sort of cleaning shit more like for instance, running shorts, I'd probably, I would do five.
I mean, not that I've done running, like, let's be honest. The most sort of lounge went normally, but these ones are running shorts. These are Josh. Isn't fucking around. He's going for runs.
Tommy Jackett: [00:27:46] Uh, he, he he's the thing. Treat them like underwear. If you're wearing shorts
Josh Janssen: [00:27:51] every day, I'm having to wash it. Yeah, that's right.
Tommy Jackett: [00:27:54] I think you have to treat them like underwear I'm with you when it's just a short over the top.
Josh Janssen: [00:27:59] If you have
Tommy Jackett: [00:28:01] not sweating hard in them.
Josh Janssen: [00:28:04] Yeah. I could go. I think I could do four runs. Before wash w if they didn't have internal Andes. So then the craziness, the craziness of it is you could actually get more.
Runs out of the shorts. If you were to wear shorts, cause then you've got a double barrier. So then you're not using the internal Andes at all for any sort of crazy absorption.
Tommy Jackett: [00:28:29] Yeah. Yeah. Well, I mean the game, I need to buy some on
Josh Janssen: [00:28:33] what are you going to get on cyber Monday sales?
Tommy Jackett: [00:28:36] I mean, they had every day covered black Friday, Saturday, Sunday.
So I'm just going to Monday.
Josh Janssen: [00:28:43] I was bargains. Uh, OzBargain
Tommy Jackett: [00:28:47] is this a life hack for PayPal? I was bargain wanting to buy.com. Can I just tell you right now, the, the problem with buying shit online?
Josh Janssen: [00:28:56] The problem
Tommy Jackett: [00:28:57] is Amy. Amy bought herself a pair of shoes. Yeah, gazettes these awesome shoe I bought, uh, the shoe, exact same shoe for her birthday.
A couple of years ago. White added ass. And. She hasn't been able to find them in Australia, found them online, bought them, paid 150 bucks and they've been delivered too big and shit. I mean, that's it that's on her for not knowing her size. I was just like, Oh no, you just, in the back, you sit in the back.
She's like, yeah, it cost, it will cost the same. By the time they've gone to Europe and back again. Like, it's not worth sending them back. It'll be like $80 to send them back before you've even got anything new and so absolute nightmare. So she's going to sell them online now,
Josh Janssen: [00:29:48] but so it was an international store that she bought them from.
Tommy Jackett: [00:29:51] It was internet national store. Yeah. It wasn't like, it's fine. If you bought from Footlocker and then you can go into a Footlocker and exchange them. That's the problem. But that's what I liked with
Josh Janssen: [00:30:03] mr. Porter, which is like an online. Ray Taylor. What I liked about them is even though they are from the UK, you could send shit back.
Tommy Jackett: [00:30:13] Well, the iconic as well, you can send stuff back and there's a bunch, but. It's very annoying.
Josh Janssen: [00:30:19] So there's, um, I'm wonder if you can to Oakley do shorts, do SUNYs, do you ever own property or were they all
Tommy Jackett: [00:30:27] fine? No, I never bought, Oh. I went to an Oakley rooftop party and they were giving away free Oakley. So I got really first time I got a pair of Oakley's.
Josh Janssen: [00:30:36] Oh, that's crazy. Do you know the, the Oakley founder? What he created?
Tommy Jackett: [00:30:40] Uh, red. Yeah, red
Josh Janssen: [00:30:42] cameras.
Tommy Jackett: [00:30:43] I mean, it's very cool. I mean, they're in there. Glassware they're on the lens game lenses. And so
Josh Janssen: [00:30:51] sing much on OzBargain in the way of this. There's a lot of deals, but not, I can't see anything regardless of clot tag or just DM Tommy today.
If you've got any good places in Melbourne for sure. And get shorts. Yeah. Well, might get some too, like even under armor, under armor had a sale the other day. I should have gotten some from there. Yeah.
Tommy Jackett: [00:31:15] Anyway, it's um, I mean, I do recommend going in store it isn't just at this point, like you look at the moment for everyone to be buying local in LA right now, because of they're going to that second lockdown, that harsh lockdown, again, very fucking bad for small business.
It's um, it is worth it. Like you go to the supermarket, the shopping center. And there's lots of people and I'm just thinking
Josh Janssen: [00:31:40] matches clothes. I actually hate, I think it's just like a body image thing. I just hate fucking trying stuff on, because if it's, if it's not good, it's just, it feels shit. You know, like this, the whole problem with the fucking every time.
Like, was it, was I with you? Um, I was with Nissan in New York when I got some new balance shoes and it's like, you're fucking end up with the two E's, you know, the wide ones. It's like, you know, they take you over to the fucking. The medical section
Tommy Jackett: [00:32:09] and they put a song
Josh Janssen: [00:32:11] on. Yeah, no, it's just like these ones, you know, these comes with fucking, yeah, it's ridiculous.
Uh, do you know what I have been talking about, but I have, I've gotten a lot of pushback from the people I've told Crocs thinking about just getting crops for around the house slash going to the bin. The bin room
Tommy Jackett: [00:32:29] who's giving you pushback. Let me guess,
Josh Janssen: [00:32:31] mr. 97. Yeah.
Tommy Jackett: [00:32:33] Spot on mate. Come on, kid for advice.
Josh Janssen: [00:32:37] Do you think Crocs are cool, dude,
Tommy Jackett: [00:32:40] Crocs, there is there.
They, you will receive pushback, but there is a certain group of people that can pull them off. And I reckon you're one of them.
Josh Janssen: [00:32:50] Yeah. Thank you. You just like to say very married
Tommy Jackett: [00:32:55] it's comical. And maybe you can, how about you get people to start signing them and shit

Josh Janssen: [00:36:12] are. Really. They
Tommy Jackett: [00:36:14] look like a prototype that a young, very young, um, industrial design student has carved out with some clay.
Like my brother literally would build shit in clay back in the day, but I, I. They, they cheaper there.
