Hello everyone, welcome to episode number twenty seven of the clever dummies podcast. I'm your host, lucky, as always. Thank you, guys, so much for joining me. If you're listening to this in the morning, afternoon or evening, we really appreciate it. We're recording at midweek, on a Wednesday night, and we're ready to go and Nique. How you go and be Fella. I'm good, my man, I'm good. I'm good. It's good to be here on this beautiful Wednesday night. You know, it's tops off two degrees here in Sydney, so you know, I can't complain about the weather. I'm all rugged up, so it's good to be here. Nothing else I would be doing, despite the fact that I can't do anything else anyway. So that's right. And for another week as well, apparently. So there you go. Well, that's right, that's right, another week of lockdown. So maybe there's a few more episodes in there. You know, we always get more spreading around those lockdowns that we know our commitment is there. That's a good point. You know, at the end of the day, our original conspiracy theory was zen cast and zoom. That started that released. You know, they were in bed with Bill Gates and funded this whole thing. So I'll say we go, but maybe we'll get two more that later. Man, we got a very special guest today, don't we? A hundred percent, hundred percent. So I'm going to introduce there's so many things that can be said about Alex, but all I'm going to say Alex and I had many, many, many, many conversations about dougs, this and talk to existence of time, and those conversations always ended at four thirty in the morning at a bar where everyone was just surrounding it. was surrounded, surrounding US and just lists, just waiting for us to shut the fuck up, just an IP, expiring matches. I APP experin messy. No, Alex. I've not Alex for about five, six years now. We met our work and I think we clicked really well. I Know Alex says otherwise that times, but we know he does love me and you've met Alex as well at my birthday. I just Alex is probably one of the smartest people I know on this planet earth. So I feel like you know this. Going to this podcast will is going to be rocking. Alex, hello, fuck you and Nakee, there we go. There les no way I can live up to one of the smartest people I know, plow. Thank you very very much. That's his that's his technique and they sort of things he just likes to long wind it and then he got back. Where do I get from? Me? You can tell he's an older brother because he just over sells everyone around him so it looks good when they inevitably fail. I look you how I am at yeah, excellent, by the great too, great to chat to you. Mighty happy to be on now. That's been a pleasure. By the way, forward to this one for quite a while. I want to say I do mean it right, I do mean it. I do know Smar warms my heart and I love you dearly, but for God's like, you need to stop. All right. Yeah, he's not that smart, or I less very spook say that my dad's voice. So before we get get started, the kids, not much appreciated, get us like yeah, good, good. At the moment I've managed to avoid feeling any difference with this current lockdown in Sydney because I work from home and I'm like helping cast a TV series in the northern territory, and so nothing's changed. See for the little bit of a backgown. Alex Bokes as a casting directors that writing, casting associate, passing associate, social, but not not quite the director yet. No, no, no, I know the directors associate, one step of Servi assistance. So it's US other other casting couches. They are real party industry. Or is that subsection I? Is One of my favorite stories that I because I also freelancer and commercial casting as well, and there was one ad which, you know, was a Vignetti thing that needed all sorts of different types of people, different effectively caricatures, and one of them was, you know, a nineteen year old influencer. And so my casting the entire day is just a bunch of, you know, very handsome, eighteen, nineteen, twenty year old female influences who really wanted a few thousand dollars for not a lot of work. So everything I said was hilarious. They thought it was great, like it was, and I'm standing there just going, oh, okay, I see now. I see why the invention of the casting couch exists, because unattractive dudes and their s in my position think that these young girls think they are very funny and they go, Oh, they really like me. Oh Oh, I didn't know I was so funny. So, yeah, that was hilarious. Came home and told my wife that story. She thought it was mildly amusing. Then told one of my good mates, and make that storredy went bro You didn't tell your wife, did you? Like, she knows, no one's going to touch me, it's fine. See the see,...

...the thing is when I when I heard this story, right, this is all I think about is like, why didn't I think of that great opportunity? Right? Look, a couple of years later, for years of experience and a few more drinks, you know, all of a sudden there's Weinstein. So Hey, we're steps, boys, baby steps. But that's actually an incredible it's a it's a good point, I'm sure. Like if you've, guys, have had to interview someone for a job as well, you could probably cut through a pretty pretty much straight away and even even realize that times that you're nearly gee being caught up in it and you're like, Oh, wait a minute, that's what they're trying to do. And people that are actually good at interviews. Yeah, it's pretty interesting. How we all, you know, particularly that influence, like those type of people going to be all about that life as well. Yes, it's abby. I'm sure actors are like that too. Their job is to charm people or to lower people to either a product or lifestyle or anything like that. That's that's their default. Only fans, subscription. Yeah, if that's you, your bank. But and idiots like in my position, they only believe that if they're idiot. See, I I can. It's interesting. Exactly right. See, I think he no longer works in the industry. That's been that's exactly that's how it did. We ran them out of town, the kids that they I see. I think it's interesting because I think it works both ways. Like working. You know, a while ago I was working very much like kind of in that influence around as well, while working other things, like doing photo photography with them and like helping them build their socials and whatnot, working for coming from that point of view, I actually found a lot of them to be very dry and boring and like I at times I was like trying to look for something interesting to self, like, you know, saying, like we're what's your selling point, like why are you interesting? But a lot of them kind of just had this idea of like well, I'm good looking, so you know everything, you'd come with it. Yeah, so I think that was like from the side of like coming from their side and trying to help them like sell themselves. I actually found it the other way around. I was just like, you guys are quite boring here. I was like, I was like it's like said, perfect specimen of human but you're really not. So that was quite interesting as what. Like, there's a lot of good, good look and people out there as well. So you need to have a little bit more and I mean I guess some the sure there's some people, and I you did one photo shoot with a with a lady, and you realized that she was very good at making photos at certain angers and using certain vote filters as well. So like that sort of thing the real life, the real world is it's intriguing. Something that's that's exactly right. This one influencer, right, who I kind of had the major crush on, and she she's from the US, right. She came Mitterr in Melbourne when she was in Melbourne and we were like just was breaking that event and I met her and she was the Morse. She's like norvous and she was like socially awkward and like I just I just heard my class shattering. I was like, you know, you know that like instagrams not real, right, I know, but you know, just like little bit important to me that you know that. I do. I do, I do know. I do know. Now exact okay, manly, you know it's a best self version of you at all times. Just, you know, just check it. That's a hat involved, a Nack, let your guard down. A chair. That's that's exactly that's exactly right. What we'll get a more advice on love from a nake a little bit later in the episode, I'm sure. White. Yeah, my love advised was a long way, although you know, I'm in this podcast with two married people, so I don't know how much good or damnage one of all my account, when I'm all works really well on terrence or my all my all my single friends. So you know, the listens and well, let's do let's do maybe a little bit of background work for our loyal, many of our loyal sneeze. You know, you can delve as far deep as you'd like to, but obviously you're in the director's assistant role currently at the moment. I know you've done some acting as well. As you said. You're really passionate about that, I'm sure. Has that always been your goals and ambition? Did you sort of get put along that road at a certain period in time? Like what's your short of journey you got to get here now? I kind of. I started doing it when I was a kid. Like I'm from a country family from the upper hunt of valley and I started dancing when I was about four years old at something my mom just put me into im not sure why. It definitely wasn't my Dad's choice, but I satted on that one. I was about for and really, really enjoyed that. Did that for about eight years, I think, and I also there was a local youth theater in Maitland called Maitland Repertory Theater, and my grandmother would take me and older brother to those shows once a year when I was a kid. I joined that group when I was about ten years old and yeah, just always wanted to do it. Parents made me go to UNI and made me pick a another thing, and so I did that for a bit, pack it in and moved to Sydney to be an actor sensational and...

...obviously you guys cross path there. Yeah, you're what were your initial thoughts on a Nique? I mean, let's be honest, you know they might have evolved, but what did you first think about the the great man and Nick was the kind of Tech Guy at the venue that my drama school was at. So, you know, it's whatever you your first impressions are of the Guy who does the tech work at any business. That was my first impression of an AKE. Yeah, especially an ethnic tech guy. Yeah, yeah, it. He really didn't stray far from the stereotype on that one. Hey, if he ever had an issue with your reports, I fixed them dinner. Yeah, and he they bring your home as well. It's great like that. Was a yeah, and when we were working at you know, he and I both tech people and mine was coming more from a theater side, creative side, I guess, of theater and lighting and sound and whatnot. Was An ache has gone from the other direction, going via computing and what not to end up in the creative side. So it was, you know, kind of a meeting of the minds, as it were. There's a lot of fun and I think it was a lot of fun. A see Alex says that, like, but Alex was always super proficient at like the tech site as well, like really good at it, like and you know, we did a lot of like fun stuff and broke a lot of things and fixed a little things, mostly fixed things, and you know, it was like it was never a dull moment because we were always fixing something and that was like the kind of the theme of our road place, because there was always something going wrong. Exactly. My my favorite to the to date, to date episode, if that I see episode, because it was kind of like all the office right working there, but bit more depressing that time. My favorite to date episode was this one time our our accountant got locked out of the bank account and they were a little USB stick that you needed to actually log into it, and so that usb stick was broken or something like that, right, and he couldn't log into it. So I remember we were like, Oh yeah, let's all try to fix it, and Alex just goes to me, goes, while you fix it, I want to fucking get paid tomorrow. I'm like that's what I want to get paid as whole. So not only I'm trying to kind of fabricate. I you on ticket whatever was called the password break, the password authenticating system for CBA and an acting school working at a creative industry. So I think that's to to this date. What it was one of my favorite thing and of course, I think, of course I did it. So I said that was very funny. It's right. Do you not remember this in the slightest? But I'm glad you're happy. The best part was no one asked the questions, like quite really just did that and CBA should work on the security question. That was breath, my bank. That's exactly right. Yeah, very bank hunter. It's a transfer baby this. Yeah, yeah, so it was good memories. And this one time, this one time I remember, there's a show to run and like I was running late or something like that, which was often the case, and I came into the came in and often, I say often, I was practical the every day right. Yeah, it was rareccission when I was on time. Yeah, so I broke up to work and Alex is running this show and I was like wait, hold on, you can do this. Why haven't we just talked about this? Dye Goes. This is exactly why we haven't. So it was very funny, is that is I was a lot of fun. Like. Yeah, and then, of course there was times where we just, you know, hung out and had awesome conversations as well. So a lot of a lot of good history there. And then another little story about do I need to be here for this or should I just I just want to let a name. Yeah, that's that's the beauty of this Fishal beautiful. Right. I just want to wrap up this little story, right, but this is kind of introduction all to Alex. right. So Alex was getting married right and I was late his wedding. Oh yes, what's and I I wrote. We walked up as they were walking, walking away from the aisle, I guess, like you know when you walk out, and the funniest thing was Alex had Alice, just looked at me and then did the classically I'm your necks off. So that was very funny as also. That kind of wraps up our friendship. I guess says a lot. Yes, you think I'm really great, but you didn't turn up to my wedding. Cool, now, actually, he turned up late. Right here. If he was a no show with a good excuse, okay, but the fact that he got the let's shot. Yeah, to be fair him, a terrens did fly in from Melbourne, I think, that morning then had to drive up to the Hunter Valley. So, yeah, I know it's also filling in that morning. Ye, sticking to now. Well, there you go, exactly right. It is what it is. It is what...

...it is now, so I can. I'll continue on with a questions now, Alice. Right, so, I know I did say we'll talk briefly about sports, right, and you're a big sport fans. Yeah, that's so. Are we on this? Shout out to the too for none podcast by Patrick Cullen and Chris Bartie. Yes, where I'm a guest hosted. If no one's if anyone has on this second dropped in man to for none. Yes, none. First Aver, come on, boys holding back. So talking about cricket, I guess let's stick into a quiet you play cricket when you're young, right me? Yeah, Oh, cool, yes, you're talking about yes, I did a little bit. I was not good, so I didn't get to play much of I coached my brother's cricket team for a bit as well. I've always been the guy who thinks he knows more about cricket than everybody else, and sometimes I do. But you know what they say, if you the people who can't do it, I teach it often. So yeah, that's that's me. Like, no, ninety nine percent of the things I do in my life. Well, this is good. That's something I found with coaching cricket in particular. And I played for a lot longer than I coached, but I've after a couple of years I felt so much more adequate as a coach than I did when I was playing. And there's obviously the pressure of the live situation and having to perform. And you know, De signed do do what you preaching about, I guess. But like, obviously if they're younger, you know it's a different story. Even if you're not very good, if the kids are a lot longer than you're still better and then you can kind of figure it out. But there was just something like an and I never was able to achieve at any rural level of cricket. I just wasn't good enough. I played for ages and I loved it like I lived it so much and I practiced all the time like it wasn't for that a trying. I was just so shit. But I've spent for a good, you know, two thirds of my life plague it. So it was like when I finally came to that realization, maybe it was the best day in my life. But but for coaching, I click to straight away and like I started coaching when I was thirty and fourteen and I just found I liked it a lot more and like the pressure was still there to perform, but I like I felt like the things that I liked in coaches growing up were what I wanted to bring in and I wanted to build relationships with kids and not just be you know, because I wasn't a parent at the time. I felt like some coaches are just like extra parents and like their bossing other kids around. Like I like that relationship with the young kids and I was kind of like an older brother because I was only maybe, you know, for five years older than the kids I was coaching. So that was probably part of it. But like and then it does actually make you a better player, like I coach kickboxing now and it does make you better at the the art form because you have to analyze it and you've to be able to teach something is a definitely a different thing. Like when people say if you can't do something, you teach it. It's not over the true either. Like there's a lot of really talented people who aren't meant to be coaches because they don't have to believes or something that people like a Nique who time, yeah, formed into relationship because, like, I taught kids drama since I was like sixty as well. Yeah, it's drama. Yeah, like I've been teaching since I was about sixteen, kids drama and I do a little bit of dance as well, a little bit of guitar and then, Yeah, coaching cricket is I always find teaching something makes you better at the thing you're teaching, as you were just saying that, yeah, makes you a better player when you become a coach. But, yeah, sometimes that's a little bit too late. Yeah, exactly right, too far gone, even your understanding of what it's all about. Like you definitely can conceptualize things, and that's why there are like nowadays, particularly pretty much every sport, ninety percent of the people in the media where x players, and I think I understand why they're doing that. But you still get your really you know, you're really smart, medium members who don't overstep their boundaries and have a really good understanding of the game who haven't played at such a high massive happens. Massive Rugby League fan and a massive, massive cricket fan and a scent of paramedic eels for the League. What, no, way, I didn't realize that. Right. Go, there is king. What about Mitchell? Moses might find so happy for the BLO, so happy for like. Hopefully it's one of those things where you get them into origin camp and they come out and they just go to a whole other level. Yeah, look what it's done to cleary, you know what I mean? Like, sure, he had half the side with team, but even a few years ago, like and Moses is my feel, like he's play has matured, his ability to like we're kind of shifting topics here, but it's a real fused yeah, that's will bring it back to coaching, but his ability to control his forwards and to kick when needed to kick, and one of them, I think it was Lula way, is that the five eight? For Pain of one thing he said about yeah, one thing he said about Moses is like as a runner, he's really fast and strong and like, Oh, you wouldn't actually pick that up. Like you know he's a good runner, but he said like he's a fast and strong runner on top of his, you know, halfback ball playing ability. He maybe needs to take an extra second when he's kicking penalty goals. But apart from that, way that, I'm Cerrett. Yeah, hard R. I always had the pub there. I was good. You know, my drop dry July us lasted two days. I was spoken. I was off to...

...the racist. I was sitting at home watching it on my laptop. I was doing other things and when Matt Burton kicked that Field Goal I turned it off. So I missed the penalty goal right. Wow, this entire range of heartbreak that all you guys went on, I was just like said, it's a good yeah, then a check the score, you know, ten minutes later, like thirteen, twelve, that makes sense, and I'm just getting all this stuff going. How do you miss that? We take care. It was crazy. It was off the they went for a short kickoff. They ran, and this is one element of the game that I like, like that's crept in is they've obviously they want to protect the people going for the ball, but basically a Nique, like as a opposing player. So if the other teams kicking to you and you, you're one of your players, is trying to catch the ball, you're allowed to run in front of your player to stop the team from hanging in, as long as you don't run after another player and try to knock him away, you can kind of just like shield him without doing it. So basically, a pair of player Shit like run off his line. Penalty goal thirty meters out, maybe fifteen in from touch. He rushed it. He just sort of didn't. You know, he has like this mental thing he does where he kind of talk to himself and I don't know what he does. Little he's a little squeeze of the arms about. He didn't do it way. He just went in and he he struck a well, he just pulled it. I'm like, Oh, he's fucking rush that, but I'm still glad he got the role anyway. Like it. He deserved it. He's been playing so well. So yeah, and he's at the Right Age, twenty six, like that's when you want to get him in there and fucking yeah, it's a good time to start. I guess to do I always be behind slane cleary in games. It is what it is, because clear is what twenty four or something like. Yeah, but and he's just phenomenal, you know, best back up halfback, I think, in the COMP sir. That's right. That's right. And most of started out was a five eight for you never know, maybe one day they can bring him back, but I feel like they want to keep the pain of partnership with just. Yeah, it'll be a bit hard to replicate lock your first and and thirst and Chronk like. That's a that's a very special pairing, special couple of halves. Yeah, the amazing thing about those guys to they were played. They could be playing like absolutely dog shit for their represent like their regular teams. Broncos have lost eight straight. They bring him in and he's fucking men in the match. The amount of years of heartbreak as a Nissa Willes fair still trauma that I'm getting over to this day. Just, yeah, like it what it started at all. He's fifteen and it didn't end lost twenty four. Is it come on in like you would just you would buy in every year, like you would get gullible, you would drop your guard down and then backing bag the jaggy again. Yep, good anyway, good times. That's it. It is what it is. Therapace is going to get a lot of cash out of that. And what the restrictions will still be on. So it's going to be interesting where they have the game, because they were wanting to put it in Newcastle because game three unique was want to be next Wednesday. So the fourteen was meant to be at ains had stadium. Obviously they can't have it now because of restrictions. That would talk about bringing it up to Newcastle. They could fit twentyzero people in. I don't know. They might just take him back down and I think they announced it today that there's definitely going to to Newi. Oh really, yeah, just not a big crowd. Yeah, well, I think it's about a twenty two thousand capacity. It'll be about thirteen thousand. They'll try. That's still solid. Yeah, the boss will be wrong, would it be? Still? Let things at rocking? Well, Newcastle's not in lockdown. So they're not greater Sydney. No, great at Sydney's central coast. Yeah, right, were mountains and Wollongong. They're on the lockdown and the rest is just you know, social distancing. Yeah, yeah, we still have to mask up and that sort of thing. But yeah, where everything's kind of open. So I think the crowd I'll be full of masks. Yeah, that's right. And read next, obviously, but that's good represented. Yeah, that's it. Maybe that's it. It's why didn't know that, I so I thought it was all of new subtals that was in lockdown. Wow, I'm not. I'm really very, very Sydney cent trick. That is a big Carter for it goes back to the interpersonal relationship and that's think, something because I've I'm only just I've only just moved back to Sydney. It's really hitting the sydneys later. You could take the boy out of Sydney, not the Sydney, and that's right, especially West and Sydney, the heart land. But yeah, regional where you know, we got mass businesses are restricted, but nothing is really closed down. This is actually the first time since the start of covid up here in croffs Hay with that we've had to wear masks. Even when it started last year in March and April, there was no mask mandate. Yeah, right, pretty crazy. Right. So, yeah, it's well that's actually our first and it's not one wants to go there. Like but yeah, well, they what they do is they cut off travel and like sixty percent of our population at times can be brought in with tourism. So they would just stop people coming up for the school holidays. And they're like, you know, we have owned we've only had like two or three cases in the entire mid North Coast region, which goes from like port mcquarie to Balana. So like we've been pretty good the whole time. So it was just but like a lot of businesses rely very heavily on tourism, you know, like like shops, like obviously like food, particularly around coffs, harbor Jetti, where the water is, like all those bussinesses are eva like...

...really struggling at the moment. Or like, you know, school holidays is a massive part of their business. Like, yeah, it's a lockdown that started right as a holidays did. Yeah, for the for the first, third time or whatever it was. It. Yeah, it's almost like watch and this like this tim it. Ah, yes, like the tile. It's almost like the honest. But you know, then you've got to go down the rabbit hole. Then you've got to pick up the scraps and he really get it is. It's all going to happen whether we like it or not. So well, that's, you know, actually so, and you might be able to speak to this is a guy who's had experience in the legal industry. I was bro Sciencing my way through a legal document today and I was reading through something called like. It was like patient. It has to do with medical so it's like doctor patient relationship and, like any medical procedure, is all voluntary. So it's like against our Constitution for any medical procedures to be forced upon a person. Every any medical procedure you can get has to be voluntary. Like you're not you're not forced to get anything. So wouldn't that restrict them from making vaccinated vaccinations mandatory? I'm not sure that it's against our constitution, for a start, just because we have in Australia very few explicit rights within the constitution and there's been a few things which are called implied rights that the High Court started kind of gleaning from the Constitution the late S, nearly nine is, but they're very legally ones. That not really in terms of like the yeah, the bill of Rights in America and that kind of thing. We don't really had yet anything other than, I think, freedom of movements and freedom of religion, a right to trial by jewelry. That's kind of it, the regular standard buns. Yeah, very, very few things. So in terms of what our government actually can do in terms of forcing vaccinations, you know, I haven't been at university studying law for about a decade, nearly. So you know, this isn't legally binding, but I'm pretty sure they yeah, they can almost do, not what they want, but there is room for them to be able to make restrictions like no job, no pay, that kind of thing. That's what Tony Apple actually try to start doing. That's right. For vaccinating your children. Yeah, yeah, you know, everyone's got at least one good idea. Yeah, that's a good point. That's just what that's what's happened in multiple states in the US. Like they still have reage restrictions in place and I see vaccinated. So it kind of makes I feel like that's what might happen. There's talks now about like, I guess, Third Party or government age. He's going to people's employment places and vaccinating people there. So that will obviously speed up the process and get allowed to get it done quickly. So I could definitely see a day where I get an email from my work at the moment saying, like, you know, if you don't get it, don't come back. I don't think so, but like I'm kind of mensely preparing for a little bit because I don't really know. Like it's kind of hard to know. Yeah, it's a lot, a lot of speculation, but that's right, and that's the thing. Like it would help if we had some vaccine to kind of yeah, yeah, that's the big like I get on to bathing. All this fuck. It should have been get this, get that. This fucking's available. One let's fifty five years old and you've got one leg, like it's rede except for those two hundred kids at what's Sydney boys high or whatever the hello are, that couple days ago, a good that would be, and they'll get to give it to the digitous kids to this always helped buget it up and gave it. So ridiculous anyway. And the interesting thing is, and this is been this is what I always find interesting when the conversation flips is, for for a almost a while the government has been saying, Hey, everyone needs to get vaccinate, everyone needs to get vaccinated, and it's been like the thing that you need to do and you must do, and then all of a sudden there's no vaccine, that no one can get back to it. Like my workplace at the moment, like everyone is starting to get vaccinated because we need to travel like fair bit in coming months and so we need to get we all need to get vaccinated, and just none of us actually can manage to get vaccinated like way. So, this and all these. So, yeah, yeah, so it's pretty interesting. And then and then the other side of it and they said, well, you know, if you're vaccinated at this started the conversation as well there. If you're vaccinated, then obviously, you know, you might be able to skip out on certain quarantine and whatnot. So, but that hasn't mean the case. That hasn't been the case either. Like someone who was vaccinated that's a negative from city ny went to Melbourne and they still had to go team for fourteen days. Yeah, but the most recent thing has goss. It's the Delta variant, which is, yeah, much more infectious. We don't know how the vaccine the vaccine was never designed to combat this particular strain. They're allowed to change their minds at Nique. It's just the changes so often and you know, I find it really interesting what so see. I think that gets me about that is then the thorough...

...authoritativeness of when they change their minds. You know, there's not there's no dialog that they've changed in mind. So it's just a continued push and I understand you've got to lead people like that, particularly people that are hanging off every word, but it just feels like a disingenuine nature of it compared to just really compared to yeah, there's a lot of sociopaths in politics who fought who. You know, he would have think it's the one of them all. It's what happens when you get liberal governments. I'M gonna say it like friendly Jordie's the Liberal government back in Alan Jones. That's fair. That's fair. I see that. I mean overall, and and I did say we're going to talk about politics. I knew there was a natural segue to politics. I knew it. The weird think term liberal as well is like in the US, like it's complete opposite. Like I don't know how we stumbled upon that word. Is Right side home liberal, like it means what it is, and it was. Yeah, but Robert Menzie's who I'm pretty sure started the party. I think he was an offshoot from the country party, like sixty s there, late s really. He was Prime Minister, I'm pretty sure, at the beginning of World War Two, and then we changed to a Labor governments about forty one. But then he got it back a little bit later and was the longest. Yeah, I minister, Blah, blah, blah, Blah Blah. But back then liberal meant individual rights and freedoms, whereas they were standing opposite Labor, which is workers rights, which is collective rights, and that kind of thing. And then, yeah, it's just depressed. Now, of course, in the UK you've got the Liberal Democrats party and they are, you know, center left. Was it Malcolm Fraser, the prime minister that Got Golf Whitlam Austed, handed in his resignation to the Liberal Party of the three Ns and said it's not a liberal party anymore, it's a Conservative Party. So I'm out. Wow, and that guy was a dick and he still quit the party. So it just go yeah, where's the party now under this guise of liberalism? Yeah, and that certainly progressed. Obviously we had John Howard and he was pretty traditionally conservative right and then we had a fair shift left. Same with Abbot. In certain areas he's even more rights. I still feel like he was. You know, he wasn't. He was similar to what we had with John Howard, and then now it's kind of get it. It's kind of hard sometimes to get a read on Scott Morrison. Like I guess he's so many things I've been going on in the country. Like he's had to change in shape and evolved in he's like a chameleon at times, like you kind of don't read of him. The thing of what was scummer. You can't tell my bias just from that. He's professionally a marketing dude. He is. He wasn't to this a lawyer or a rich business owner or career politician or anything like. I just wanna I just quickly want to say for all the marketers out there I'm offended for you guys. So I'm not saying marketing people are bad, not exciting people are bad. Prime Ministers. Well, I'm just saying that I'm offended that he's a marketering a prime minister. So they probably loved him. But yeah, like he's he's skill is spin and slight twists and rephrasings and for reframings of things, and that's how he's progressed through politics. so He's less progressed through marketing. And now as a prime minister when we've had catastrophic natural disaster after catastrophic natural disaster, you can't spin that, you can't reframe global pandemic and some of the worst bush fires we've ever seen. You can't rephrase that, you can't kind of slightly hoodwink people with a pretty image of a Bondo beach. So you know he's struggling. That's why I'm messaging across. The pandemic is all screwed up. It's why none is consistent. He he takes none of the blame, but every good idea is his. And the division within state level as well, like the it's so obvious that they really want to make an attempt to get rid of now. But like, I didn't feel like there's I feel like this is the wrong time to be I guess you could say that maybe you have to take that approach because of what he's been doing as prime minister. But it's definitely the wrong time to be building up more division and kind of in fighting that regard instead of but maybe, and this portion, maybe, maybe that division is happening because of his weakness as a leader of goways. been there. Okay, that's true. I'll blame it for a lot of stuff, but I can't blame him for that. I said, that's right. It's just a little think Daniel Andrews is the strongest. You doing those less things to focus on at the moment, like it's at the forefront. So they hmm. Yeah, just just waiting for them to give the make Daniel Andrews the prime minister, because you know why? Uncle Dan or Dan Murphy here that...

...state on his back and then he broke it and he broke it. You know that he's still still lasted. That's a fact. It was like so a little bit of us, a little bit of a bit. I'm gonna be like when Old Royal Satasi, if I could tour's I see, because he tripped ours two year old daughter Hu's just going to play for Australias. Like you pull pretty went through the hard. Yeah, it's that. Did remember that far anyway. Sorry, continue being fall yeah, so I'm gonna that's okay. That's okay. I'm going to change up the piece of the podcast and like kind of take it back, as I feel like I've been asking. We've been asking this question to almost everyone as well, but I will know what this question is because I've been listening to all of your podcast. Yes, yes, that's exactly I so thanks you listening. We are needed. Those extra two listens bloody really put a push us across. That sotally listen to more episodes than I have. I think I've gotten halfway through about three, but that's just because I fucking scream it the way I speak. So it's not yeah, you hear, you hear the sound of your own voice and us go. Now I'm out. Yeah, not just the mistakes. You're like, Oh, what he does stuck a yeah, just causes me more and a couple. Honestly, the couple I have listened to our Freakin loved, but I just got to get through that initial part. You know what I mean. Anyway, it is what it is based. So what's your thoughts on listening? That's okay. Well, you know just quickly. I've actually listened back to some of the old ones and I just like, what the hell were we doing like this, fix your microphone, you Dick here. So that's very funny anyway. So my question was, let's tick back, you know, almost a year now, I guess, when the whole coronavirus when I first started. How well Boo were you at? You know, how is your life was like, Oh my love you, mental state, Fan, mental state at before it started or after? When when it started? So doing the whole the me and my wife it just just got back from our three months honeymoon. So we think we were in cans in the middle of February and then kind of got back late. FAB She went straight on to a job. She works in makeup and prosthetics for film and TV. So she went straight to a job. I spent two weeks looking for an apartment, for a house to move into in Sydney. We found one, got approved in about two days or my mates helpless move in that weekend. Lockdown hit about three days later. So kind of just timed everything pre coronavirus perfectly. So yeah, will great. She we just come out from a big honeymoon. She is working like again, she's just kicking goal after goal off goal and her career and I'm sitting around the house playing playstation for about three months. Was Awesome. That's yeah, I had different messaging. I've heard through all it, through every single one of my mates that I'm just like, especially because I was in a pretty good frame of mind. I'm checking in on my mates fairly regularly and they're all, you know, having a fairly rough rough time, whether you're in share houses or blood away from family, whatever it is. Yeah, but I'm just, you know, kind of living with my new wife that have been with for over a decade. Yeah, it's pretty good and I got a lot of yeah, don't talk to me for a bit because your joy is giving me the shit. Did you have a healthy nesting there that you'd saved up? Was that? God, N it's been at all on the honeymoon. Yeah, s yeah, yeah, but she was she's working in so she was earning. Well, we'll fight. Yeah, I get you, I get you. So she was still working. Yeah, she was pretty much the only film that was still filming in Australia across kind of March, April, May, a remake of children of the corn that they were doing. That was filming out Richmond. Why? In Outer Sydney. And Yeah, they just lock down, they put all cast and crew were, you know, had to stay at their hotel. Done. Are So okay from her beautiful yeah, so we will find sounds like a dream. I love that. I know that's that's brilliant. See, having a wallet's No, well, I really, I mean see, I this is the loud and glad message our I hear it is. You know what's weird? I feel like this is a now the new theme of the PODCAST. When we spoke to Haley and she was just going on about how happy she's being married and how many goals she was kicking. You Korby Nineteen Almight, so and that'll say, I feel like. I feel like I now need to get married because that seems to be the answer. Yeah, that's not the first step. There's a few steps before that, but you know, get your dad to tell you, damn it, what's the steps? I'm not your dad, okay, damn in. Your Dad married a younger woman. Didn't need to maybe just wait. If people yes, just just just a few more years, you know, but you know what my life to get easy house. That just reminds me of it's probably one of my favorite SNL sketches of all time. It's Tina fey and Amy Pola hosting a game show called meet your second wife, and it's three men in there. You know that's Fey,...

...mid S, early S, and they introduce the first guest. This is your second wife, and she is a she's eighteen years old. She's a Co Ed at this university. DIED, and they're like, Oh, oh, she's eighteen, that's the same age as my daughter. That they maybe they can be friends. They like yeah, your daughter's gonna love her. All Right, Gary, meet your second wife and it's a ten year old girl who walks out and oh, I don't feel comfortable with with this, and they go yes, when she's in twelve years time, when she is twenty two, she's going to be your secretary, etc. Etc. Etc. Then the third one, which made America just lose its mind, was a thing. Was subcessily strong, playing the woman who walks out and you know she's in early s, and they got the Guy Goes, Oh, this is my second wife. Yeah, this isn't too bad. They like yes, Janine is pregnant with your second wife. I love that your second wife isn't own yet. Yeah, that's brilliant. That's kind yeah, that's that's after. That's out some South Park, the little shit they're. Oh, yeah, do you my south bug? You know what? An episode just glicked in my head, the human centipead episode. Does anyone remember how good was that? I'm getting absolutely scarred by that. At Your House, I hadn't seen the centipede before that monment. Did you investigated after or the side Buck? I'd seen. I'd heard what it was about. Like I think I'd recently seen two girls, one cup. So I had it stayed again of what he've been said. OFF head was but I never watched it all the man that I saw a centaipead. I'm like, man, if this animated joke is hitting me this bad, like I could I couldn't sleep for about two days. The human setupede was a terrible ide did you wish the human said to be? Yes, yeah, it's one of those films that you have to watch it with friends because it's weirder if you watch it alone. Yeah, that's most definitely. Yeah, and we said nothing about that as well, I washed it a lot. Yeah, but you did goes back to an earlier point made. I think, what a what an interesting feel like whenever when I was a writer, was writing this film. Is like, you know, would be great if I Dick A, if I make a completely different film and you know at multiple would be would be so unusual, if I stick one dude to another dude to another girl, it'd be great. Yeah, yeah, and then give them axatives. That's horror writing, though. It's like, what's one fucked up idea? Cool, got it, let's make a film. That's in your bloody your casting agent coming up to you. All Right, we've got this great Geek. We want you to buy the middle part. Yeah, of a human centipede, of human centipede to like you've seen the first one and then you still say yes, mentioned how badly you didn't. Where is my career? Will Nowhere, but you know, yeah, well, that's no. What was it like? Like a human centipede? So cool, I am available the it's it will. It was like it wasn't Russia but or somewhere, like it was in that part of your bright like it was like the you know, you'd have to be pretty fucked up by the cold weather to make something like that, I'm sure. Yeah, awesome, like Serbian films. Yes, Serbia, yeah, that's those are next level, those guys. Yeah, I'll do they mix interesting films. When I was sixteen, would to watch the shit out of those films. Now, a little bit older. Now it's weird a like you just that your consciousness is too strong and you're like, oh, yeah, as a kid I've proffed it, like I even like, even like most horror movies don't do anything for me. I find him stupid. But something like the conjuring, like I feel like it's really well made movie. Yeah, and even to that day, if I put the country on, like, I'll be Albi, you know I'll be. I'll be turning it off. Still a big fan of horror films, like yeah, but I those, you know, just gross out. I've seen too many bad ones. I feel like I was saying too many bad ones. Yeah, I enjoy a schlocky one. Yeah, the intentionally gross out which is, you know, no real plot, it's just based on one idea. Horror film to gross you out in there. Yeah, I grew out of that face. I didn't grow out of my metal phase, but I grew out of that face. What's your thoughts on Wolf Creek? I Adore Wolf Creek because, yeah, it's amazing. Easily want to Taylor. What about in the second one where they doubled down on his character? I didn't mind it, I've because that was my favorite part. But I feel like the first one was just like. The second one was good, but you can tell like the first one was just more raw. It was just like a little like, yeah, it's yeah, I feel about the second film. was like any hero a little bit. In that second one was weird, almost with cheering from making the TV series. Is that they made the first one so good and it's similar to kind of a quality of like my favorite film of all time, in silence of the lamps. And even though that's the second book in a trilogy, Anthony Hopkins version of Hannibal Actor, is that the first one that he did, even though it's the Middle Story? And what makes that much more impressive of a film rather...

...than Hannibal or Red Dragon is you don't know anything about him. Say as I like First Wolf Creek filming. There's no rhyme, there's no reason, there is just this character, this really well made character, doing pretty heinous things and the lack of justification, morality, explaining his history to try and explain who he is. Now, removing that makes it a much better film, much more interesting film. Then as soon as you you start dipping into that backstory and, like saying with Hannibal, you get the Hannibal rising origin store Netflix show wasn't there and the one as well is too much a it's just it's not necessary. It takes away the intrigue, it takes away the interest of what's a really, really cool character. It's kind to help people feel about the Star Wars prequels. Yeah, but as just so much money. That right, like you've got even to butcher, even to but it's just like why those fast and the few is twenty eights coming out next. It's just you can it's to that well drives up. You might as well keep digging into it, you know, not mean like mounding machines. Yeah, look at Dwayne Johnson, I mean into bit to the rocks. Credit like he definitely has developed into a pretty good actor, but he still plays the one role. It's just, you know, I am looking forward to Black Adam see if he can sort of provide something different. He has played some really good characters and to hit to his credit, I actually even though they're not my favorite movies of all time, I haven't watched the rock movie and gone like not enjoyed it. They are all like solid, like I can sit for it. I'm not bored like they're all seen the tooth very Nah, that's stayed away from that one. Now I quite enjoy one where he was found that he was a football play and he was the dad of the young girls around the same time. That was really good. I didn't watch too fur I feel like there was like those two options and then, thankfully, it was like game playing or something like that. One was solid. Yeah, tooth arries terrible and he would you were the target audience. I watched it because it was so cute. You what is like? You would have been like eight years old on that film. That's exactly what I watched it and I was like this is the goodest thing ever. You know snap, but I think it came out when we were like nearly in high school, Bro. No, before that little I can maybe. Oh Yeah, just nearly high school. Game Right. I'll tell you what one of my favorite films is of all time. Transporting, transporter, transporting, O creen sporting that you and mccragu film about. It looks all the name you. What do young film about? Fifteen and Nick, you are fifteen when the two ferry came out. Mate, this is getting worse. Dippe questions. I just know Alex's words where I'm like I was okay, that's sad. Wow, yourself, train sporting, transporting. Well, my favorite films of all time. That's it. Just so yeah, just so well made. I think it's just like when I speak about, like when I say fair films, as in like narrative. Wise, the way it's made, I think, storyline. It's just so brilliant. I mean other films are more entertaining that I'm more probably wouldn't watch it as often as I'd watch, you know, I wouldn't watch trains trend sporting as often as I'd watch other entertaining films, but still, all time one of the best films I've ever seen. HMM, yeah, transporting. Just a question. Does this podcast have like a through line, or are we just we just running until we run out of breath? We runt to live when the wall presents itself. You and I. Yeah, I believe. Look, we know we nearly hit the ward about ten minutes so we're just hit. Will love it until we want to live it. Did he add any more topics? Are An echo is going to look up another one. Obviously Daniel Craig, who's the current James Bond. This is World War Two set movie that he was in. I was came out as an eight. It's called, let me just abruptly put the flow of this podcast to yes, it's called defiance. So he is in Belarus in that see, during the occupation of Nazi Germany and he kind of plays like a freedom fighter. It's called defiance. I came out in tears and eight, and this is before he was James Bond, or maybe just when he got the role. That's a fucking amazing film. A HMM and like not a lot happens, but it's the it's the those are sometimes the best movies when they don't just give you the they don't just give you the sex straight away, like they make you crave it and then you get a bit of it and then it goes back like it's just so well and I'm all for a war film, where a Cold War era film set in East Germany like. Oh, but yeah, I live for it. Yere, when I was a young fellow, I would I reckon for my early high school years. I went for a couple of years where that was everything. It was rather around the time when I started playing the video games, like particularly the single play video games, like the multiplayer just changed in this something when it was just like a single player campaign where you'd go through like my history might. Almost the entirety of my knowledge of both World Wars, in the Vietnam War, came through medal of honor and call of j Medal of honor and college e. Yet and there's another one, the big red one, one of the early ones are so good, you know.

So it is what it is. War History is always been something me and my dad both have always been in. So, you know, Christmas every year he's easy to buy for. Is there a new book about Australia in a World War? Get it? Yeah, so, yeah, and so all those films like the nines, in the two thousand platoon, we were soldiers, private Ryan behind enemy lines. Is that the winner? Is that the Will Smith one, which is all have you watched nineteen seventeen? No, I haven't. So that that's one when I think about one of my favorite movies of all time and like it's hard for me to go like is a different sort of movie. It's hard for me to go past shortshank redemption. I would be willing to film nineteen nineteen seventeen into top five a it is so freaking well done. Yeah, definitely right, and maybe that's going to be a home most time band of brothers, which is yes, there's serious series Tom Hanks and Spielberg produced after they made saving private Ryan. Yeah, that is phenomenal, exceptional way. That was just before like that was before Netflix and that really took off. So we hadn't had a lot of like series that were like a movie expanded. That was almost like I remember being in Channel Seven. Had it like prime time, like it was massive. That was so freaking good, so good, like I took you into obviously into the lives of the soldiers and like yeah, just amazing. It's almost re watchable worthy actually, to be perfect. Literally, is that my parents place? About two months ago, when saw the box set sitting there, I went I'm taking this, I'm going to read the halfway through rewatching it now. Brilliant, brillant. Yeah, I'm going to start watching yellow stone. I've heard that's really good. I don't know if you've watched have you ever? Let's watch that. So it's it's set in middle America. It's kind of like a country setting, but it's modern and they're just stay own farms and they're just involved in all sorts of absolute chaos. But you'll fall in love with a couple of characters and I think there's about three seasons and a few people like a few podcast I listened to it. My mother and law absolutely rave and carries on about it. New Season about to come out. So it's just meant to be exceptionally well done. But I've basically I don't know any of the plot line. I just know it's called. I know the concept of it be I don't know any of the plot line, but I've just heard. Everyone keeps telling me people with reason MS and you'll love it. That that's what I've gathered. It's so hard for me to get into shows because I know how invested I get, but like watch those arc for sure waiting for that one animal kingdom's one so I think I might start watching. I've been a few months now. I actually went back and rewatched the Marvel series punisher. Yeah, that is legitimately one of my favorite things ever to exist. Yeah, I I got halfway through on to the end of nearly all of those. I haven't watched the second season the punisher. Haven't watched the last day day. Yeah, they're a lot. The end of it. Like Bye Bye Jessica Jones season two. When I and Luke Age season to, you want to knife yourself in the in the face, especially that first season of Jessica Jones was legitimate amazing. The second season might be the worst TV series. I don't knowst discipline toes ever made. Iron fields was shockingly bad in two episodes. So the first two episodes were good, but it allos things. You WNAKEE Puss, and do you know the defenders? Like how badly can fuck up a great concept? Yeah, like that was so effing boring and then that was a bl so well, it's just a guy that plays the iron fist. Like I love David when I'm but even he couldn't save the first season. I don't I don't love the I don't love the the hit the also the villains. They are fighting to the kind of the mystical Asian characters. I feel like they could have been done a lot better, though will just very shit and boring. Yeah, the hand is is a tricky group yet to try and resistent time with here, just just chucking the probably. Yeah, Rasal Gul, that's it. That's how manhead. But it's in, but is it isn't. How good that was the actor? How he was in? He was in underbelly, one of the older underbellies. That dude is so legit. He played it in the recent was it in like Arrow and that? Oh, yeah, yeah, he was that Shit. Yeah, what was could DC bre you're funny. He's the rather equivalent in marvel. What's his name? Is exactly like what exactly? This good? That an immortal mentor to one of the characters. Like what are you? What are you going? Do you have a whole go when your Roomnique, just just ask you, Alexa, look at the raizor goal equivalent in model. Hello, so she path. What are you talking about? You had too many deals to drink tonight. Go to sleep. I thought I'm a iron fist, had some power to be good, but then didn't win. It's like yeah, and fifth does the show doesn't y's it should also like so bad. Seven, a love story. They had a just was so slow and he would like he was losing every fight for the first six episodes. Like yeah, I was effing good. I had all that character. I adore the iron fists.

He's really, really cool, and also iron fists relationship with Luke Cage and iron fists relationship with Daredevil in the comics. Yet is totally comment all this. Yeah, the defenders, the group of these New York superheroes is awesome and it was just the most dull, boring. And it's just that one dude who plays own fists in game of thrones as well at all each SAS is I'm the immortal Iron Fist, was like, I don't care, fuck off. Yeah, provides something more. He had a look about him like he had the he had the look I've and he just didn't have much. Your lawyer is trinity from the Matrix. Step back. What. What? How good was did I sure? Yeah, but six, first, especially the first two seasons. First two seasons were really good and I think the character who played season was made when they after they shit the bed with defender. So I think it was already yeah, it was already beaten, a dead horse. But to not for your king pains. Yeah, perfect, all exception. All right. Yeah, so brilliant dad level kind of existed inside of it. Like certainly dead all season two, sorry, the punisher, dead of all season to the punisher was in there. But the punisher series, both seasons, kind of existed outside of the the outside of the a world for the most part, for of these reasons. But yeah, like understanding on that. The punisher series was just a happy accident. For Yeah, is that they spoke punish are in and people lost their minds for the first decent portrayal of the punisher on film. Yeah, they were right, all right, since some of the old ones. Yeah, the Thomas Jane won move alter, yeah, and and bloody, what's his name? Heaven and act like Ben Affleck daredevil. Yeah, watched a Mormon. He be definitely double. I had such a question from Jennifer Garner. Well, I was a teenager, though, so I really liked that film. For John Burnthor is exceptional. I haven't seen a bad movie with him either. He's so good. He was in early walking down as well. Yeah, played, I think it wasn't. Yeah, hurt locker. That's another good one. That one came out around the same time as the tooth theory and it was a big bad no, I'm what's The blue people? The movie hall? The blue people over time. Every time I'll tell you they got I haven't seen at a time. Maybe I should all the smurfs film. Yeah, the SMURF. Yeah, Neil Patrick. Yeah, so that actually came to the time of all time. Hurt, like I got overshadow. That's a good war movie. To go back to it. It is. Who is? It was a great actor, butters, I think it Neil degrasse Tyson. I would ever saw hurt. He's just he's just a great actor overall. He I watched him in I met you my there and then I found out he was gay. I'm like, but it doesn't make sense. You and once hen it's called acting. I know. That's what I'm saying. Very good acting for a mile guy. He is awfully gallivoicity. I guess I thought you would be an Aldocraft Tis is gay. Even though that's good for me, I just don't's the best market is the one that believe they're what they selling. Right, so you're gonna believe that's what you'reways. Say. No, I seller never test their own product. Yeah, that's right, but you have to believe in it. Do you believe in what you're selling? Yes, I do. You know the good film that just gave it up in mind? It's a crean film. It's called old boy. Okay, I don't know if you guys seen it. No, that's if you haven't seen it, you should watch it. It's a brilliant film. I won't give away to wake to the shit differently. A yeah, and that's what they film. Such a brilliant film Paris. That fad, amazing Harrisis, ridiculous. A yea. The basic premise of the old boy is basically this dude who owes someone money ends up getting in prison for a while and then, to punish him further, they end up putting him with his daughter and they end up falling in love. So it's it's so insane, but that's not really yeah, it's so insane. It's insane film. Right. Say That again? Yes, yeah, well, I was like half in a different world because I next talking so the films about some films about this. I won't give away the plot. So this guy get ends up getting imprisoned for whatever reason. That's the reason you have to find out. And he's into prison for Max amount of years. Yeah, and after the years he gets released, right, and he thinks he's going to go on leaves with light, with the life, if we live his life. But they set him up to fall in love with this woman, who woman ends up being his daughter. Yeah, call, I heard you correctly. I don't want to watch this film. It's seen a daughter that's watching it, like it was such as in you know, if it's a long lost daughter's pretty, but cousins are fine, like you know, I have a tien concept of this somewhere. I think. I think might have...

...been selling talking about it. Yeah, that's pretty next diary when it was hard. So have you guys seen brawl in cell block ninety nine with Vins Fawn? I have not. I. Yes, Les Man, very much. You do. Yeah, this one is very good. He was a like obviously in prison, and the role he plays like he's kind of has like this dark sense of humor and he just has like this switch where he goes to a really bad dark place and puts a betting on people. It's fucking really well done it. It's so different to anything I've ever seen him in. What was that one with? It recently came out on Netflix where you couldn't she couldn't know, like put they had to keep their eyes cover. But but boot box, yeah, box, like bird bart. What was your thoughts on that one? I didn't I thought it was good. I like that. It's not really watchable. It's not rude, but yeah, it's a good concept, but it's yeah, once you've seen it once, it's if I put my dickhead in this aside. Right, I think the concept was really good. I think that could have been most of the film was fairly good, but some of the acting was subpart and some of the snes met of the money on her. That's why. Yeah, so I think that the film had potential, but it lost a plot because they, you know, they did quite to steal typical things of like, you know, like by that died, the black guy that dies very quickly the film, right, so things like that. And then, you know, there are a couple of other things that I was like well, this, you know, that was like you just did it, because that's why you do so. But the film had potential, so I yeah, it might like the walking dead cross that sort of clown movie that recently came out where they couldn't speak. What was that one like? Silence, make no noise. Fuck, I'm terrible. A quiet plice, a quiet place. Yeah, let's make no noise. That's a terrible description. That's just like an ominous warning at the front of like a moody teenagers. It's a great yeah, it actually was a quiet place. So it's like a cross between the walking dead and a quiet place. That's bird box they go take from actically. Yeah, I didn't know. This podcast was Margaret David at the movie. Hey, what do you know? What? It's just it. It goes down rabbit holes and we this podcast has been everything that I dream about. I'm talking to people of I want to get out. That's another good one. Yet that's a good's great film. That's fair. It's a good film. Get up. I yeah, that's what insane film. I mean, they did the white they need anything explained to me for a second. Oh, yes, my yeah, that was pretty legit. I watched the trailer on Youtube. I'm like, I definitely have to see this. Yeah, I'm from my understanding, because it's Jordan peel from Kay and peel who, yeah, directed it, and that's right as far as I own. Is said that he made that film because he was trying to get into a bit more acting in films and television and he I'm pretty sure he was just getting put up for the really shitty stereotype roles just again and again and again, even though it is he and Keygan Michael Kaya, you know, some of the biggest sketch comics in the country. He's just getting this shit roll after Shit Roll off a shit role where stereotypical black guy, stereotypical black Guye. And he just went you know what, fuck it, I'm gonna make my own movies with good storing theither and fucking nailed it. Now is all the other day hasn't missed yet. Such a that was one of those movies, like it wasn't. Wasn't obviously it's like thriller, not totally a horror, but the way the characters start to unravel like that's for me. It does more to me than a lot of horror movies because it's with your head. Yeah, that's right, that's the way. Yeah, but there was a happy ending. It's like these movies never have like these legit good endings, and then he made us like old no happy endings. Cool, thanks, yeah, appreciate it, sir. Yeah, but that you know, the bitch died. So anyway, so it's good. Now we are at that our remark. So who we wrap up the podcast now I'm gonna get in Good Stu sport. You, Bostar. We did talk about sport. I'll briefly talk about creek and always do another one. You know. That's right. Yeah, happy one. That's just cricket. My step could get absus cricket like the tooth on podcast didn't run last year. So I'm kind of enter. Let's talk about ashes around the corner. It's get when, actually very soon, at the end of the Ye mate. Yeah, yeah, a few months. I'm so excited for I'm so excited for the boxing didas all. We can't talk anymore about the hour mark man. You missed the chair. No, no, I was gonna asks in life, Alex, your fusiearser than us right, in life's ruining me. What's what's what's a good advice? To live by. Oh, don't listen to what anyone like me fucking tells you what to do. That's pretty much it. Be Kind, don't be a Dick. If you don't have to stand up for yourself, do what makes you happy. I don't know. Yeah, until...

...more people you love them. Yeah, even if you don't, don't let people like i. kind of mode that I do kind of live by is try not to leave any interaction with someone where they would leave it worse off than when they first saw you. That's cool, that I worded that horribly, but now that's kind of it. But don't, don't start an interaction with someone and leave them worse off than when it started, when it started. Yeah, yeah, that's what I like to think about. Bringing joy into sign's life that maybe they didn't have. And even if they don't like you for it, like, it doesn't matter. You attempted to do it right. So, yeah, that's very good. I'm going to use that for my dating life. I will cut you don't have it one. So like that a risk that tinder buyer could say, are you go very pleading? Don't leave an interaction with someone whe they feel worse. Don't I yeah, he's he's got like a motivational quiety is he's display picture and these photos are like he's at the mosque, he's got a fat of his mom and he's out of live, laugh, love. Yeah, that's the Classic Lover Back on and the court at the front. That's what you need. There's always at neater. But I'm married. Well, I mean, this isn't I mean I need to get married fast. High. This is this is just happening like might you might be in the right culture for those fast arrangements. I do not, and I have no part of this. Auntie say, Auntie has said to multiple times just say the words. It could happen. It could happen if you know. Anyway, maybe my last point we can I could quickly deal of just a little bit in of obviously you know we're speaking before about the trauma involved with being a newswhis fan. I would argue the trauma involved being an hes fan far exceeds that. We had to tell ever one of wooden's Boons, and you know, two's nine seasons. As one like you know, we can just go on and on Te Thousand and five. Actually, two and five might be the worst because we also wasn't a Hindy. Did he's ACL in the first match, the finals, which we won? Yeah, and he was effectively, yeah, our best Tackler, the best tackler and the best holder in the world. Yeah, isn't the team? Yeah, yeah, I think I always put thirty points on us. And Anyway, because you know, that was one season. Actually, I didn't know until I was researching it, because this year in the NFL and Eque, like I've never seen a season where the top eight in the bottom made is so fast separated. Like there's been that many forty and fifty plus, like all big margin games. Like it's like the level is so far separation. We got was Lenk to record that? Yeah, yeah, so two thousand and one we got it. So we had the most points and pain of for about a hundred and fifty or so away in the foreign against this like the differentials, they've been doing really well. So that could go. But compared to maybe the last let's call it, since two thousand and sixteen, when we sort of had our most recent string ish of good form, except that wouldn't spoon into it's an except for twos and eight a year. That think it was sixteen or seventeen. Well, that's right. You know, we've had backtoback. You know we've had a few fourth placings where we've lost both game in the finals. But regardless, what do you you haven't haven't won a final since what two thousand and nine to yeah, so that's that's the one as I was thinking of as well, in turn forte end. Anyway. So this year, what are your thoughts? Like I feel a little I don't know. We had a couple of bad losses to manly and RABBITO's. It turns out those two teams, when on their days, particularly be in the which of way. It's like just a freaking age. He could do that to any something's in your squad. Bloody God, help the other team. Right. But the last couple of weeks there was a lot of errors against pain of panthers, but I feel like there was a lot of good to take out of as well. Like we didn't there was shifts in momentum and times where I've seen the team give up and let a few easy tries in. Like our defense kind of kept us in that match. So that's yeah, I'm at at the moment. Thing is I'm always I'm always very nervous and I'm always looking for where longer blake is standing on the field. He's the old tacker Ai. Yeah, if he's twenty five meters in as a fuck, but you can feel like I'm always very, very nervous. But you know, oper check is a really good defensive center. You've got some good wingers coming through. So, like with Hayes, Dunster and whatnot. If, if it's not this here, and it's unlikely that it will be. But I think we we're edging there to really, really good squad and we've got probably he on cheap for another twelve months. So what absolute buy the as any who, he's twenty thousand, he's on. He's like just above contract. Wow, he's the second coming of for if we in my my he's that is Helly to a point. I he's phenomenal and bright. Start Right. Is going to tidy his game up at yeah, like I think he's a really good furtus from a string of injuries. Like yeah, he's a guy that like added the top of his form for that brief period. Is I'm like he was astray quality. So if he gets back to there, if every time I see him do a kick I want to kill him. Yeah, except that one time that he kicked for Moses. Yeah, or I'm like yeah, Kay, are you get away with that? Pretty good? Yeah, you get one, but he's ballhandling like even junior Paulo, big number ten, like...

...he's hundred thirty kilos and he's not. Like we've got family friends who are, unfortunately for them, tigers fans. Oh, we go to staff the Banquest we got to the eastern Monday game is always paradising into bank. Yes, yet a I really is not. I was at the first it's awesome. Yeah, you get fur to go with the stands. Course it's like a caldron. It's like Ridley Verna. Ah, my dear brother absolutely rave about it. It's beautiful. But yeah, we go there every year and the link up play from Reid Marnie does about a ten meter pass at junior Paulo, who does about a fifteen meter pass to Moses and all of a sudden the balls were on the right side of the field and their other side of the post and it just goes Moses, Gutho, Sivo try like yeah, again and again and again, and you've got your prop your big fridge size front rower throwing these twenty men of bullets out to the left. Absolutely for not how he didn't start each origin game as the number ten. Yeah, does my head and totally like he wanted to use him as like that sort of impact. I don't, I gives got. He's got no, but he's got eighty minute cartier. That's the thing about him. Like he's not one of these people in the US like yeah, but he's first thing. So he went down to camera. Course he had to leave paramedic because he was getting into the wrong crowd. And done it. US went to Camebra forgaple years. Yeah, I remember that. That's right. Then came back and it's just fit, fast, fast, heavy, yeah, strong and bold. He could sit bloody. I lovely hasn't been hanging out with Michael Jennings, but maybe that's very good. From It, it's right, but he's got this over exact Dr so just yeah, well, that's exactly right. And you know, in saying that, I'm my opinion for the most part and in most sports, on on performance and aging drugs has changed because of just the amount amount of professional athletes. I've heard say that the amount of people that are on it, that are just have enough money to consistently come up with new ways to take these drugs and hide these drugs is unbelievable. So I don't feel like it's as big of it. If you, like a lot of people, think of one or two pain and maybe, in a strange to the difference throw because we don't quite have the same amount of money. But I look at him, Michael Jennings, kind of guy who was in his mid s. He made a bit of a career resurgence. He was nearly as fast and as strong as you'd ever been. He had to go. He last year and I saw when I found out, it didn't surprise me at all, like you don't regrow more muscle than you've ever had in your S, you know, after fifty years having cocaine. No, no, was steroids, because I was gonna say I've done cocaine. It's it, just it. HINCE has zero performances for about fifteen minutes and I was I was steroids for yeah, it does make you feel like your performance has been announced. Oh No, I'm selfaware. You're not talking about Coke Dick, are you now? Just I wasn't, but you know, while we're here. Yeah, well, that's right. It's so yeah, yeah, I'm so glad that your anels fan. That's always something you can go to the world with. Yeah, I feel like a Nike has been quiet for about the last ten minutes and he was sorry. He tried hard. Yeah, he tried hard. It's because I stopped at foot it like it's like I'd like to you know, I'm one of those ones with like profay. I'm like, I have a trophy to say I go for els, but you know, really I don't want it from says whatever. Yeah, and you don't know, I don't really watch it. You know, as a young fellows a really big NFL fan, like I followed the NBA, baseball, golf, I watched everything, and now I've sort of since really I become a fan of MMA and the US in particular. Like that takes up so much time because there's a twelve month sport go. Let's expense now. Yeah, and so I've got a little bit of cricket even that's the last couple of years, since what happened with Steve Smith, knows boys, I sort of got turned off at a bit I also was playing and watching at twelve month you around, like I watched every game of the BBO and like two sixteen, like. So I kind of like, kind of like went really hard cross. So I kind of like need some time away. But since then it's really just league and and main boxing are like sometimes anything other than golf and baseball. Yeah, and anything than those to get it in me. You can do it. I've recently gotten back in a little bit of baseball, just watching Youtube, so not actually watching games. There's a Japanese for their name show hey o Tani. He plays for the La Angels. He pitches plus a hundred miles per hour bombs home runs. So he made the Allstarde team as a batter and a pitcher and he's fucking six foot five and he's lightning quick and he's Japanese. Just great, that's the normal. They love American sports and they've been some of the best at those sports. That different. Yeah, fuck you, we're gonna do this. Thank you very much. That's right, basy, but this bas seconds to the US for a very contact. That's exactly what I was going to say. Like, apart from the US, America's pastime, like baseball, it's second home is he's definitely, but it's just like cricket. India's the Big One and there's England, you know, and then there's here, like in terms of it's like the other way round. Ease that,...

...because it was. It's an English game, and then they just kind of talking this year to themselves and Went Haha, yeah, and then the Indians grew to love it event yeah, like currently anyway, because ninety percent of the world's revenue comes out of India, doesn't? I've heard that statistic floating around. I've done that's well, the racial cross of crickets reven say they're doing well for global income. That's why the real powerhouse, no, note, e. percent of the yeah, it would be. This is this is a talk for another day thing, but the BCC, the BCCI, has almost infinite power with cricket. But yeah, influence, yeah, DRS, I mean that would come to countries and I am not opening that kind of worms because we will be here all highly. It's dishes, Bungla dish cooks. I definitely bride. Definitely, yes, that's fact, mate. The B C DC a rather international crooking association. That's all right, that's any last thoughts there and ache might it's been so good. At you on. It's been good. After this is a good a chat at. This has been a good mates podcasting. Yeah, I'm pretty sure this is like a really bad podcast from any real metric about what you're talking about, but I've had a lot of fun. Well, that's what I mean. So you know, what do you mean by that? Oh, because we have no focus. Well, that's that's those are the best ones here, right, it's just like it's just like the girls with fatasses on instagram. They provide no doubt no nutritional value to you, but they get the most likely stuff. That's a good way and it now. This been good. This has been good. I think we there's another podcast in there, but cricket. I think that's just focus on cricket. Plenty more. Yeah, honey, and we can go. Yeah, we could go to more serious topics as all, which we did touch on here on there. All right, I mean, I will be living. At the moment. We need a bit more laughter. I feel like I still think there was something through the something. They are bus time and it's existence, but I guess that's it. You keep hitting that fucking young man, and I'm not going to go into it with you. A Ye, you've been all all right, and it have to be in person. In Person. Yes, I'm smelling myself. Yeah, that's right. So we could just render him unconscious and continue talking for it all right. Thank you so much. While we definitely will have you back on.
