Tommy Jackett: [00:00:00] Very low barrier to get into the drone spot.
Josh Janssen: [00:00:07] We've committed to do the daily talk show for 10 years. I had guys in the calendar just like to check the temperature in the room. I told you my squeegee story.
It's the daily talk show episode, 956
Tommy Jackett: [00:00:23] C home day. What
Josh Janssen: [00:00:24] is happening, what's going on? How do I, how do I look? I was just recording. I'm a one trick Tony yesterday and we do it in the studio and she sits, uh, where I'm sitting now and you sit, uh, you're looking good luck. I think you, um, I reckon your shot, uh, Do you think that
Tommy Jackett: [00:00:44] we could have done this five minutes ago?
Josh Janssen: [00:00:46] Do you think that your, uh, we, we film every episode, we were looking, uh, my right side, better than my
Tommy Jackett: [00:00:53] left. Well, this is the side thing, Joe, very blown away when George Martin GB was like, actually viscerally got a bit sort of. Upset upset about which way we were shooting some portraits for our website.
Full-stack films.com. Yes, let's
Josh Janssen: [00:01:15] talk about, and we'll redirect
Tommy Jackett: [00:01:17] full stack films.com or.com. Let's go to
Josh Janssen: [00:01:21] F U w our S T a C K films, F I L M s.com dot a U.
Tommy Jackett: [00:01:27] You can say we we've got four fighters there, but Georgie boy was a bit pissed about his angle. The annoying bit. Best photo based on grant. I
Josh Janssen: [00:01:37] mean, I guess that's right.
He's standard is why he gets those results. What? He ran a tight ship. Like I didn't get like, look, I was like carefree and look at my photo. I didn't have to Photoshop anyone else except me. Yeah. It's not good. It was my cult. Cause that's not going to be here for you. It's been there for hanging in there.
It's sad. I think it's cause every time, like I felt it yesterday when I was eating. Like it just breaks. And you were like,
Tommy Jackett: [00:02:04] I'm bleeding. I'm like, man, that's tomato sauce.
Josh Janssen: [00:02:07] You're not blood. You'd never know. Um,
Tommy Jackett: [00:02:10] played a fun game yesterday with my, with my friend. We'll call him donuts. That's his nickname.
Yeah. Great. With donuts then that's an, I went out for dinner, had a lovely dinner and then we're walking back, uh, to the studio in ice and we saw a, um, a dog daycare.
Josh Janssen: [00:02:27] Yeah, it's just on a punt road. You see a lot of affluent people picking up there. Yeah, yeah, yeah. Which is. It seems like that's the, it feels very, I know we like to say things a very American or whatever that feels very Los Angeles, which is like all these fancy casts.
What are they doing? Are they picking up there? Fuck it. Like during the day. I wonder if they working from home and just want some peace. Maybe.
Tommy Jackett: [00:02:52] Are you talking about me with Bodhi at daycare? Same, same, right. I took him to daycare when I was working from home. Yeah. No, it is nice for them that I can show the dogs, get a nice treatment.
Actually, they get a facial and also they just get to hang out with mates, but new game hanging out the front of a dog daycare. Watch the owner walk in Douglas. Yeah. Peek, what dog have a mate with you? What dog will match that person? Can you guess the brain sounds
Josh Janssen: [00:03:23] like something you could do with our cam quarters?
We did it
Tommy Jackett: [00:03:26] yesterday. We did it yesterday. Both got it wrong. Um, but we didn't wait for anyone else, but we were like, this is the best game ever. So
Josh Janssen: [00:03:33] is it close enough to the Mexican restaurant that you went to, that you could see it from there? Or did you, were you living somewhere
Tommy Jackett: [00:03:38] else? Would actually position yourself at the happy Mexican on Panera or huddle straight and with a camcorder.
Zoom in and play who's what dog is it? Uh, what's what's the braid. I
Josh Janssen: [00:03:51] like that. Well, because the, the sort of guests, the braid, what people say is you look like the, um, you don't like, we, we send, tend to gravitate towards dogs that we look like, or,
Tommy Jackett: [00:04:02] or you morph into your dog. So I think you, you could buy a dog, any dog.
Yes. And then maybe their personalities are malleable. And they, and they kind of just like morph into a version of you. I mean, that's what you and I, we, we, there's a lot of things when very different, but you do have enough time around somebody. There are little things periods are at the same time. It's very true.
No, no, no. Just. What we would think about me making a comment before about something in you and you just picked up the other bit, but you knew exactly what video I was watching last night and probably referencing. And so, because you're on the same, you're on that same. It's the content, our content cycle.
Yeah. I mean, girls, cycle's going echo chamber, definitely an echo chamber. Definitely. So I know what you're thinking. Mm,
Josh Janssen: [00:04:56] no, I, I understand that. I've um, uh, remember I talked about my socks the other day.
Tommy Jackett: [00:05:03] Yeah, you smelled a little bit before we went on air, I could smell you really like just, what does it smell like walking in physical.
Josh Janssen: [00:05:10] animal walk. It's a fair effort. And it's 30 degrees. You don't stink.
Tommy Jackett: [00:05:15] You're not a stinky guy. I'm a sneaky guy.
Josh Janssen: [00:05:18] What do I smell like? Um,
Tommy Jackett: [00:05:21] fabric soft, sweat, sweat on fabric, but not be Oh, so it's not like it's a weird, was it
Josh Janssen: [00:05:27] worse? Um, is it like having an animal?
Tommy Jackett: [00:05:31] So Amy doesn't stink at all. She's so clean and then you.
You get like, um, her wearing some kind of like woolen or, uh, like it's no, it's not woolen. It's more like the, um, do you think synthetic furry and then actually, if she's doing some stair runs with some, why is you doing stair runs in
Josh Janssen: [00:05:54] fake 20 weeks pregnant, but also in Frankfurt, but now it's
Tommy Jackett: [00:05:58] like, It's this material.
I kind of it's like, I dunno, not for it's like, I know fluffy, like a nice cushion at a house. You know, you get those sort of furry looking cushions, but she, she might be taking some boxes upstairs at her work. But if she does that, she gets in, I'm just like, I can, I can smell a bit. It's not bad, whereas I'm offensive.
I get you're like, fuck it.
Josh Janssen: [00:06:21] When you bring two yard run into the office,
Tommy Jackett: [00:06:25] levels of testosterone as high as mine.
Josh Janssen: [00:06:27] That's part of it could be. I liked that, but that's, that's a good story. But, um, no, so I, I worked out the, um, because I'm using the Merino socks, I'm really trying to get the most out of them in regards to okay.
Uh, wear them, put them out, like sort of straighten them out. And yesterday I said, I was like, ah, I think I've overdone it on these socks. I think these ones are time to either time to be washed or give it longer between when I walked and when I'm wearing them again.
Tommy Jackett: [00:07:01] I mean, it's the, it's trying, it's a lot.
You're trying to believe in the hack of not washing something that you and you can wear it many times. Yes. Jeans that you're not meant to wash because of the look need to be fucking washed or binned. It's disgusting. You still in them? It's like saying I were actually more people would maybe pajamas, like have the pajamas, put them.
I mean, you're getting in the clean, usually if you've ever had a shower and then you take them off in the morning, put them under your pillow. Like a lot of people do that. I know where I can't put anything cause I don't wear anything under my pillow. And. You still should be washing that you should be washing it all.
If you think you wash, if you, if you wash your sheets once a week and you're not washing your socks once a week, fucking look yourself in the, well, the
Josh Janssen: [00:07:49] idea is in the mirror. So now I'm, I'm very like, I'm a clean guy. Like breeze always said that she's like, you know, one of the qualities, I don't have many, I can't do many things, but I'm a clean guy.
Ron Klain ship was in the smell thing. I think that what you're experiencing is the worst version of me, which is 30 degrees and hour walking coming in. Uh, Jess, I walked with yesterday, she said, the thing with guys is you can walk for an hour and then wear what you wore walking in to work. Whereas like, Apparently she was saying chicks can't really?
Or she doesn't feel that she can do that. And I was like,
Tommy Jackett: [00:08:30] it's definitely a feel that you have, regardless if you're a male or
Josh Janssen: [00:08:34] female. And so I definitely like the air con bank. I set the air-con on it.
Tommy Jackett: [00:08:39] Yes. It's a real, we've got a real, real problem in this building. Why the temperature thing it's it is this problem is just office insert this problem everywhere.
It's the battle of the sexes. People don't want to say there is a difference. My studies extensive have shown that women run a bit cooler yes. Than
Josh Janssen: [00:09:07] males. Well, yeah, apparently there's that whole sort of, um, unconscious bias that. Temperatures in office spaces tend to be cooler based on executives, leaning male.
Tommy Jackett: [00:09:23] because yeah, men are all running hot then fucking, but,
Josh Janssen: [00:09:28] uh, I feel like I'm a feminist, but I also think, I believe in jumpers. Don't you agree? And so the, the, the criticism Jess had, she took a photo on Friday night. She was out, uh, at a bar somewhere and it was a hot day and she felt stupid because she was wearing like a woolen jumper.
Yeah. And she said, this is Josh Janssen's fault.
Tommy Jackett: [00:09:52] Uh, because you liked the office running cool. You, you have a remote now, that's it comes in the form of your iPhone. That can turn it on. I heard it. Beep and I looked over and I was like, he's on it. It's very cool. So I'm thinking, this has me thinking you were hot in the moment and you're like, yeah.
I'm really hot. I hope the icons aren't and then you do. I told the guys, I says, that's exactly what's
Josh Janssen: [00:10:12] happened, uh, sad walking. And I was like, you know what? This is harder than what I thought it was going to be. I don't want to get to work and be hot because the other thing is, um, and I know that this is some work I need to do, but when I'm hot, I get agitated.
I'm not the best version. If I'm dehydrated. I'm agitated. I actually had to buy a bottle of water at a cafe on the way, because I'd forgotten my water bottle. And I was like, I'm going to be too angry. No,
Tommy Jackett: [00:10:38] that is that's, um, version of self-awareness and that this version of self-awareness, which I've caught myself.
And it's interesting on the similarities of you and I, I. I can learn self-awareness from you based on I do the same thing. So the walking in, so after you've been out, so you go for lunch and you're walking, it's hot and you get back in chances are your going to be really hot or I'm going to be really hot based on being outside, having my heart rate up everyone at the office, who's still there.
Is the heart rates lower. They're just sedentary and they're not feeling it like us. And I walk in, I've found myself. Complaining at home, but then I watch you do it. I'm like, that's fucking what I do. And then I'm like, and I'm more annoying. You're you're, you're doing it based on how you feel, not how everyone else in the room feels
Josh Janssen: [00:11:31] isn't that all we've got or maybe
Tommy Jackett: [00:11:33] not.
I would say it's the operating system. Most people run on is what am I feeling? Not how's this how's everyone else first before mine, because if you can make yourself comfy, but so the,
Josh Janssen: [00:11:45] I have no issue. Like I could, I'd be completely fine. Within winter, never using a hater. Like I'm fine because I would just wear jumpers.
I would just like I'll self-regulate in that way. Unfortunately, I love it until our ice machine arrives. I can't self-regulate, there's no way that I can, like, this is a problem. Isn't it? So think about it. If you want to make yourself warmer, because you called you put on a jumper. Uh, like I've got them and this is what George always says.
It's like, ha look, we're all freezing and got jumpers on. And Josh is still feeling hot and he's got t-shirt and shorts on and no shoes and no shoes, because there's a lot of hate that comes out of that. And the Merino wool before anyone says it, these are running Merino wool. So it's got a very light thing on the top.
And then like, it's, it's not the fucking Marino. Well, besides.
Tommy Jackett: [00:12:37] Any big business. Let's say I'm a Booper. Yes. Do you think the S the CEO of boop is walking around back in flux?
Josh Janssen: [00:12:46] No. Cause he's got his own. He or she has got their own office and they don't have to wait. Cause this is the thing when I worked from home, this is the temptation of working from home because you don't have, because then you can.
So the, so this is what I, what I feel when I think about last year, all the time. Even during winter, um, I had my home office, which was just a small room, so it's very easy to keep the temperature the way you want it. It was on 19 degrees all the time. Didn't matter. What? And so the thing is that I did way more work because I was comfortable, but I just wasn't thinking about it.
And there is something really nice. I know that this is coming from a place of privilege and it's really ridiculous, but I am like there were multiple times, it was a 40 degree day and I had a jumper on. And I went downstairs to the Uber eats and I felt sick because I had a hood on, like, I was just, I
Tommy Jackett: [00:13:43] know the feeling I used to because I didn't grow up with a air con.
I had a nice, great house and had, um, ducted heating. Okay. But we were summertime fans that only got first acorn. I reckon I was. 14 or 15 or something like all the, we did an extension out the back, but I remember it was one con in the whole house and it was out the back. And I remember sleeping at my friend's place who had one, and I used to love it because I would sleep with a donor on, in the summer.
And I was like, this is the best it is. Great. Do you think, um, working from home, like isolation almost, um, and removing the barrier of a lot of those things we're talking about, um, That leads to less
Josh Janssen: [00:14:29] tolerance
Tommy Jackett: [00:14:30] awareness or, or more of obscure humans, like where they're just like quirks, like you could say a quirky person is someone that doesn't like to disrupt how they like it.
Yeah. Which is surely,
Josh Janssen: [00:14:45] surely there is so maybe less conformity. So if you think about it, when you come into the office, everyone gets used to how. You do things you arrive at this time, everyone goes, and does this, everyone walks and gets lunch. I've never been good at that. Like I just, and it can be very confusing for some people.
They're like, well, we're all going for that. Like, why don't you, I'm sorry. I don't know. She
Tommy Jackett: [00:15:09] feels like going. Yeah. Once we said, well, let's, we're all going for a drink. And you were like, Oh, I'm going to the Salvos to look at books. And I was like, W this is a workplace activity that we're all getting involved in.
It's called cult
Josh Janssen: [00:15:23] and my team had going to the suburbs and it was just, the team just happened to be made.
Tommy Jackett: [00:15:28] Um, it is interesting though. Like I wonder what the humans, if, if the new version of, you know, work for a lot of people is working from home. I mean, it's their beliefs. It's like seeing someone stuck in their ways, that's the best, like a layman's term, someone who's stuck in their way.
It's not you, you're not talking about you, but just my brother's mate says I don't need any more friends. I've got enough. And I was like, that's a pretty strong belief that wouldn't serve you. If you have friends, if, if all your mates decided not to be,
Josh Janssen: [00:16:00] well, it depends how many you need. Like, I think there is something nice in.
Tommy Jackett: [00:16:06] No, I get that. I get that, but that's a strong belief. It's it's like when you start thinking about your belief systems and, um, it's interesting, challenging. I think it's, um, penny drop moments or moments of self-awareness that, uh, I mean self-awareness can be sort of some kind of virtual thing if you're saying you are, but it's like, I've found a lot of the time thinking about the version of who I used to be and realizing, having a moment where I was like, That's that's what they were seeing me.
Like, cause if you're not like that anymore, and you're like, Oh, that's fucking, I was a Coke that just wanted to eat chicken all the time. And people were like, you know, let's go to the chicken joint. They loved it. They love getting me ready, getting me hyped up about chicken,
Josh Janssen: [00:16:49] the viral video guy for awhile.
Well, and they had a couple, but don't you think that you, there was a moment in time, which I don't think that this is you now, but you were definitely chasing. The zeitgeists like, what can it like it just trying to, no,
Tommy Jackett: [00:17:06] I, I mean this, I think that people do it. In the chasing form. I, any, any the fucking issue is that any of the ones that did work were ideas that I obsessed over, or be like super interested in it.
And so that was, and that's hard, like, cause there's a lot of shit that I'm interested in that no one cares about. Yeah.
Josh Janssen: [00:17:27] YouTube, Tommy jacket, TV, they can watch all of these on Snapchat. And so what's the idea. So when you, I wasn't
Tommy Jackett: [00:17:34] even any of that, so that the premise of that YouTube channel, which, um, I should take down.
Should I take it down? And I like watching him. Um, so they're just, I, I feel I was like wanting to get better at just identifying stories or things that I'm observing and sharing. And so Snapchat was just being able to stitch together the video on the fly. So you don't have to edit it, but it's telling a story in a linear fashion, you have to think about the story is.
I get up from this desk and I go to the toilet. What happens next? I grabbed the brush and realize that there's no end on the brush. And then the next scene is me walking up to you and saying where the FA like you having to think about. It's like, if you it's like some film festivals are no editing, you have to button on and that's the next clip.
So 48 hour film festival. So exactly, exactly. And so there is a medicinal that you can build and a skill that comes from it, which is the ability to tell stories. Or like, I had some people telling me, like, I don't know why I watch them, but I fucking can't stop watching them. And so I did it and none of them went viral.
But later on, when I actually started using real cameras, Like at top of my phone, like using outside editing videos outside of just using an app,
Josh Janssen: [00:18:50] but don't you think they worked time that, so I feel that like, there was a time where I was posting on Instagram every day, like a post consistently. Like I was looking for that, like, I was looking for ways to express myself through Instagram posts, or even you say it with Instastories there's people who it's like they capture they whole life.
Through that there's been there's obviously you don't think there's been a switch. I think maybe with both of us may be, it's doing a podcast where you feel like you are expressing yourself. And so that's like if you've got a cup full of creativity or less, self-expression it gets emptied through doing the podcast.
Tommy Jackett: [00:19:33] I think in hindsight, probably. Is clear, like you're saying, but, um, back then it was, I don't think I was even, I was literally just wanting to make the video, like, but yeah, so now it's more like I'm not as hung up on all of that shit.
Josh Janssen: [00:19:50] What about, I remember, so at the end of last year you did a video where it was, you were, I think I'm at the border or you made like a video around that.
And then it was soon after that, that you and I had a conversation where you're like, Like, yeah, fucking Instagram or whatever. Like I think we'll just be in a bit dark on Instagram. Was it? Th that to me felt like the holidays and, yeah, but there was an old, like, don't you think there was a bit of a, um, when I saw that video, I was like, ah, that's, isn't it funny?
That's like an old Tommy jacket thing to do. And then I was like, Oh, I wonder if this will, like, it was almost like, as he relapsed, there was like a moment of relaxing. And so maybe because you don't go on, like, we were all, haven't been on holidays that much going on the holiday. It's like, Oh, this is the thing.
This becomes the ritual, the habit. When you're on holidays, like pick up the phone, tell a story, do all that sort of thing. Was there any observation through doing that?
Tommy Jackett: [00:20:49] No, I, other than. You have to be, if it's a real habit, you need a form which is looking for, and it's not viral, but looking for the quirky idea or having, having some kind of idea in your head and then actioning it.
And so there is, there is reward in doing that. You look at the people that have look at Casey Neistat, he's fucking done. Like, I don't know what he does other than his dad and lives in LA and probably surfs a lot. And, you know, Uh, but he's made a bunch of cash from absolutely throwing himself into creating every single day.
But the pain, like problem is his pain that comes from it and it could ruin, you probably does ruin a bunch of people and then they're jaded about it and they don't make any money or there's a version like him, which he's like nearly ruined his marriage, but he actually made a bunch of cash out of it.
So he's like clawing back in that way. I don't know. I don't can't speak for him, but it's interesting seeing. You, it, it just requires that. What do you get excited about in general? Yeah, I was pretty happy about, um, going to, um, eight tacos last night. And if that's the way you get it fired up. Is this a pattern?
No, no, no, no,
Josh Janssen: [00:22:02] no. It's literally though. So, uh,
Tommy Jackett: [00:22:04] or in terms of content,
Josh Janssen: [00:22:06] a content, sorry. It was the Casey Neistat thing. Talking about like, so he loved it. Like he wasn't doing it for the money. So there was a time where he wasn't excited about it, but then, you know, you can get philosophical walking and Jess said, Oh, you know, don't you think when you get older, you just like, you're less excited about stuff.
Do you get excited?
Tommy Jackett: [00:22:27] Not Amy said to me that, are you excited to go into the office? There's not, but it's not the thing I'm seeking. I'm not seeking excitement because it's so fleeting. I get excited about random shit. Does it mean that it's good or, or no, it doesn't. And so it's hard because you end up looking, look at the creators that shift their focus and their approach.
It's like they're having realizations that what they, the weight they held on something and the belief they had on it. Doesn't hold up anymore. It's shifting. And so that's the, that's the balance. If you were that it's a problem. If you were really bummed about not being excited and that's what you were searching for, like your belief was the thing I need to do every day is something that I'm excited about.
I don't believe that that's true. Yeah.
Josh Janssen: [00:23:15] It's like similar to motivation in that way.
Tommy Jackett: [00:23:17] Um, I love coming in here. I love doing what we do some days. I don't some days, but. Yeah, it's a, we, that's where, I'm what I'm excited about or what are you getting excited about? What do I get excited about? Fucking, I mean, a Fry's and Shan
Josh Janssen: [00:23:35] I'll answer it for you and you answer it for me.
So I think that, uh, you get excited about doing new things with boating. So whether it's like the bike thing or that sort of thing, the air fryer is a big one. The barbecue was a big one. Uh, I think. I think that you get excited about the small habits, finding like a cafe or something that you will go to regularly a little like the little habits you get excited about.
Tommy Jackett: [00:24:00] yeah. Yeah. Definitely makes fine
Josh Janssen: [00:24:03] boring finding like a better way to get to work. I could imagine if you found like a back straight, like if I'm driving with you, you're like, Oh no, no, no. Just go down this, this little fucking laneway mirrors are going to get.
Tommy Jackett: [00:24:15] I think that's where, um, if you're like, I get excited about, uh, observing shit that maybe people aren't looking at, you're excited about the dog thing, which way?
Ah, yeah, watching the dog, but even like, um, and that's where I think it does translate to the videos that I would make. I was excited about the idea that I had and how it could translate. So I get excited about ideas, which. For like, that could be a fucking loses mindset because if you're just excited about ideas and never acted in them, it's like, it's all in your head at that point.
But I get excited about bringing something to life that I've thought about. Is
Josh Janssen: [00:24:53] there any, sorry. I was thinking about excitement. They had dangers of excitement with excitement, so I'll preface it with this. So I get excited about things, but the excitement doesn't necessarily make. Maybe the excitement that I have of the idea is better than the thing.
I'll give you the example. So I was talking about Vermont. Vermont is where I got my socks from, uh, Dan tough socks of the Mont. Anyway, we, we spoke about the, um, the other day, like where is, where is Vermont? It's part of new England. It's at the top near Canada. I looked at it.
Tommy Jackett: [00:25:29] Yes ma'am but, and not to be mistaken with Vermont in any
Josh Janssen: [00:25:34] way, apparently, uh, in Vermont, They say Vermon they don't do the tape that I, for some reason, anyway, uh, I was watching a video on the there's a channel called lawn.
Uh, dot TV. Yeah. On YouTube. I've mentioned him before. I think it's just like this geeky guy who I love, who talks about technology and, uh, he lives. So like he was the guy that got fiber installed in his house, like fucking two gigabit, like ridiculous sort of thing. And he went through the whole process, explained it anyway, he's brother lives in Vermont and he just got the space X Starlink.
Satellite internet because he couldn't get internet, uh, at his home, his brother arrived. And so Lon goes there and his brother does maple syrup. Yeah. And he does it through like, um, the traditional way of like you smoke. Like they, they, um, evaporated or whatever, through like some sort of wooden fire smoking process.
So anyway, I've gone down this like a massive rabbit hole. I said when I went to the website and I'm so excited about this maple syrup now. Cause I know like the guy's name's Josh, he's got this, he's got over a thousand. Maple trees or whatever that he gets the maple syrup syrup from it's cold, rugged Ridge forest.
And so I Instagram damned him last night. I was like, hi, I went on their website. I saw they don't ship outside of the U S. And so I said, Hey, like I'm from Australia. And so what he wrote back was it's like, ah, It's sort of like, I would need to order a few to make it worthwhile from a shipping perspective, because it's like, and it looks like it, like, it's like a gallon, like, look how nice
Tommy Jackett: [00:27:26] it looks, you know how we can get it.
Get it sent a three-day deal in Canada. His mom sent him a can of maple syrup
Josh Janssen: [00:27:35] strategy. Don't you think that's a bit of a kick in the guts for who? For deal to be like, mate. Where we're sending syrup from Vermont.
Tommy Jackett: [00:27:46] What about this? We buy deal thumb.
Josh Janssen: [00:27:49] We get him from Canada. So wouldn't he be like, fuck you guys.
I'm going to give you this better
Tommy Jackett: [00:27:53] Canadian about this. We get him to send. That one, you want her plus his favorite Canadian maple share. Yeah. For a fat Friday maple
Josh Janssen: [00:28:03] syrup off. So anyway, the, the guy wrote back and he said, um, yeah, we can do it because the shipping will probably be over a hundred dollars.
He's like, normally, like, I'd suggest, like, you know, you could get four, one gallons or they saw that. But it all sounds like a lot, like for a guy who, like, I probably honestly, haven't had maple syrup been a year and a half. But then I was thinking of, um, I was excited about, you know, what, like I've been like dialing in my health stuff, did 200% on my rings yesterday on my fitness, Apple fitness, which is great.
Tommy Jackett: [00:28:36] sounds good. Done understand it, but it's
Josh Janssen: [00:28:38] a very good, very good. I, I checked thousand steps anyway. I was like, maybe Sundays is the day that I like cook up a big breakfast and then Brie and I went down this rabbit hole of like watching videos on Vermont, Vermont. Like, do you want to know some interesting facts about Vermont?
Give me three Bernie Sanders from Vermont. Okay, perfect. Uh, second fact big with maple syrup. Yeah.
Tommy Jackett: [00:29:04] Uh, because of him because of the dude you're talking about, or just in general? No,
Josh Janssen: [00:29:08] just in general. It's just, I guess I've got like a bunch of those stories. Not very multicultural, 95% white. I thought it was interesting.
Mainly old people, people aren't moving to Vermont. It's very beautiful. They have water on either side, like thanks to like some like lakes, some rivers and shit. Um, so that's another fact, um, the, uh, very liberal, but I think like their gun laws are a little bit loose. Given that the liberal high taxes there, it was all, it was all based on like, uh, should you move to Vermont?
Because I was like, this looks. Like the 95% white, it doesn't do anything. Right. Um, but the nature was very beautiful and old people like are very low, like some of the lowest crime in the U S um, very non-religious as well. Um, and so anyway, yeah, I thought I just love mobile
Tommy Jackett: [00:30:06] suits. Yeah. White people love and they put maple syrup walking in nature.
Yeah. It sounds like your vibe. Yeah. And so are you going to go there? Well, we can't make you can't
Josh Janssen: [00:30:18] but I just, um, yeah, th there seems to be, so to be very clear though, the 95% thing doesn't do anything for me. Like I love Mo like is the other thing is it's like Mexicans wanting to Mexican food for me.
Cause I love Mexican. What.
Tommy Jackett: [00:30:34] What is there, there, so
Josh Janssen: [00:30:36] Brene, I've watched a whole thing on the best diners
Tommy Jackett: [00:30:39] in Vermont. Okay. So you're getting diners. Yeah. I could imagine that maybe that's a white thing, so they don't have,
Josh Janssen: [00:30:44] they don't have, um, what don't they have a, so in there, their main, the capital city of Vermont has, I think a population of 40 something thousand people like they're fucking tiny, tiny towns.
Tommy Jackett: [00:31:04] That is Tawny Vermont. I built up, is it a city or is
Josh Janssen: [00:31:07] this like a Montpellier Vermont, a constituent state of the United States of America? What does that mean? One of the six new England States. Lying in the Northern East corner of the country, it was admitted to the union on March four, 1791 on the 14th state, as the 14th state, it is sparsely populated and its capital Montpellier is one of the least populous us state Capitol.
So, but just look it up, look up the Mon. It's beautiful. But the funny thing was when Brennan were looking up. Vermont, uh, last night, it's all. Um, on another thing, a lot of, um, a lot of Subarus Subaru Subaru people
Tommy Jackett: [00:32:03] love that.
Josh Janssen: [00:32:04] Apparently, apparently there's like this person from Vermont said for every five counts, they reckon three to four would be foresters and they have like a, they all, so that color green.
Around six months of the year or
Tommy Jackett: [00:32:21] that's a lot, but I think for econ, really. So
Josh Janssen: [00:32:26] one of the big reasons why they, why one guy said not to move to Vermont, uh, the Capitol Montpellier. Does not have a McDonald's. I mean, this is the only day, so that is the only us state Capitol, but doesn't have a McDonald's Jonah, Jonah.
Now another fact.
Tommy Jackett: [00:32:47] Yeah. Last one did wrap
Josh Janssen: [00:32:48] us up Montpellier. I dunno if Vermont, uh, completely, but Montpellier the, um, the Capitol band billboards.
Tommy Jackett: [00:32:58] Wow. That'd be an interesting. Thing to go and see, like, what would a town, one thing about somewhere like Los Angeles, billboards fucking everywhere here is billboard.
We can see a bunch near, near us is on the corner. Like they're just trying to fill out any spot with the billboard because people make money in the people that own the property. People make money selling it, but why aren't they doing that?
Josh Janssen: [00:33:22] Yeah. So the width. And so when I do wonder about this whole Vermont thing is.
I get that. It's sort of a bit like I'm obsessed with Iran too. Like I've been watching all these Iran, documentaries. I just love things that are just at
Tommy Jackett: [00:33:34] home comfy near air-con got your jumper on thinking about travel.
Josh Janssen: [00:33:38] Yes. Um, but there was a moment where I was like, would it be weird for a guy that's got no connection to Vermont?
I was thinking like, this is, I mean, this is not productive, but I straightaway when the guy's like, you have to order X amount of gallons. It's like, W what would it be like for me? And I love Vermont songs, what would it be like for me to have like the only Vermont themed e-commerce store in Melbourne selling just things from it, but very
Tommy Jackett: [00:34:09] obscure and probably not much business.
Josh Janssen: [00:34:13] I think the hard thing is the TA. I said, thinking about the tax stuff, but then is this rude? So I was going to go back. Two, um, uh, rugged Ridge forest, the guy who does the maple syrup stuff seems like a lovely guy. Name's Josh. Um, is it too much? I was thinking about like the delivery cost and then remember Don Tufts socks.
Their whole thing is it's like they will, um, replace them and do all that sort of thing. Is it too much for me to ask? Rugged Raven sang it. I feel like it's too much to ask. Is it too much for me to ask rugged Ridge forest maple syrup? If I can get. A couple of sock deliveries to his place, put them in the maple syrup to make, because they're so light, it probably will protect the maple syrup.
It saved me on the cost
Tommy Jackett: [00:35:03] maybe when, when he feels sorry for you paying a hundred dollars us in shipping costs.
Josh Janssen: [00:35:10] He, I think that he recognizes that the only way it will be worthwhile is if I get. It is hard. Yes. But then you actually enter a bit. And so a gallon is like 49 us dollars. Um, do you think they'd
Tommy Jackett: [00:35:26] make another purchase you had, you've made a lot of silly purchases in your life.
Josh Janssen: [00:35:31] don't like the idea of the maple syrup.
Tommy Jackett: [00:35:34] I mean, not for the calorie content, I'm not alone.
Josh Janssen: [00:35:37] Uh, uh, Tommy day's cafe, healthy guy. He would put maple syrup on his waffles. Can we get that recipe? No, he's
Tommy Jackett: [00:35:47] still recipes. It's Loctite.
Josh Janssen: [00:35:49] Did you see his Instastory last night? What he said? So he, when he was a kid,
Tommy Jackett: [00:35:53] when he was a kid, it's fucking brilliant.
I messaged him and said, this is a great story. Do
Josh Janssen: [00:35:58] you
Tommy Jackett: [00:35:58] believe that to be true? 100% when he was 16 years old, maybe even, but it actually
Josh Janssen: [00:36:03] helps like you believe
Tommy Jackett: [00:36:04] that it helps. Wow. Well, the thing was, he was writing a bodybuilding book and it laid out the diet, the exercise regime, and one of the things was having a glass of water or red wine with lunch.
And so when he's 16, his mom discovered him drinking. While having some sort of lane mate, and, um, what the fuck is going on here now? I said it in the book it's helped, helps with digestion. I reckon I've read that same book. Really? It is a thing in the bodybuilding world. Like for some people, I don't know something about digestion, red wine who knows white wine, whatever.
Josh Janssen: [00:36:34] acidity or something like how it break it all down or something who knows. Yeah. Okay. Well, anyway, but so I will put it out there. If you're interested in. So the big cups are coming
Tommy Jackett: [00:36:45] are yet big cap company.com.
Josh Janssen: [00:36:48] Yes. Uh, so if you, um, if you are aware that, uh, so they shipped yesterday, so there'll be here any day, but how about this?
If you're interested in some Vermont maple syrup and a big cup, and you're going to pick up a big cup anyway, maybe there's something we could do. You're saying
Tommy Jackett: [00:37:06] go in on the order with you. Yeah.
Josh Janssen: [00:37:09] Yeah. So go on to rugged Ridge forest.com. Give them a go follow the money in Ceram. They've got 600 people following them.
