Don't we a hundred percent hundredpercent, so i'm going to introduce there's so many things that could besaid about alex, but all i'm going to say alex, and i had many many many manyconversations about the existence of the existence of time and thoseconversations always ended at forte in the morning at a bar where everyone was just surrounding wasrounded surrounding us and just listen just waiting for us to shut the fuck upto some.

Ido not my mom's, my heart and i love you daily, but for god's sake, you needto stop all right. Yeah he's not that smart ori that my dad's voice so before we get get started. The kidsbout at a much appreciated good in a lie in yeah good good. At the moment,i've managed to avoid feeling any difference with this current lockdownin sydney, because i work from home and i'm like helping caster tv series inthe northern territory and so nothing's changed see for the little bit of background,alex birks as a casting director. Is that writing cussing associate, and ithink, associate so not no, not quite dejected yet. No, no, no! The directorsassociate one stedfastness, the other casting couches, they a real partyindustry or is that subsection? I it's one of my favorite stories that i,because i also freeland doing commercial casting as well, and therewas one ad which you know was a vignette thing that needed all sorts ofdifferent types of people different effectively caricatures and one of themwas you know a nineteen year old influence, and so my casting the entireday is just a bunch of you know very handsome, eighteen, nineteen, twentyyear old female influences who really wanted a few thousand dollars for not alot of work. So everything i said was hilarious. They thought it was greatlike it was, and i'm standing there just going. Oh okay, i see now i see why the invention of the casting couchexists because unattractive dudes in their ties in my position, think thatthese 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. I came homeand told my wife that story. She thought it was mildly. Amusing, thentold one of my good mates, a nek that story and he went pro. You didn't tellyour wife: did you he's like she knows? No one's going to touch me. It's fine...

...see t see. The thing is when i, when ihear this story right, this is all i think about is like. Why did i think ofthat great opportunity to right? Look at acouple of years later, for years of experience and a few more drinks, youknow all of a sudden there's wine stein sa hey with the steps boys bases, butthat's actually an incredible. It's a good point. I'm sure like if you'veguys have had to interview someone for a job as well. You could probably cutthrough it pretty pretty much shot away and even even realize that times thatyou're, nearly g being caught up in it and you're. Like oh wait a minute,that's what they're trying to do in people that are actually good atinterviews yeah, it's pretty interesting! How we all you know,particularly that influence er, like those type of people, are going to beall about that life. As word yes, it's me. I'm sure actors are like that totheir job is to charm people or to lure people to either a product, a lifestyleof anything like that. That's that's! Their default only fan subscriptionyeah. If that's your your bang, but and idiots like in my position that youonly believe that if they're idiot see i can it's interesting exactlyright see, i think he no longer works in the industry. I that's how i mout of ter they can so.I see, i think, it's interesting, becausei think it works both ways like working. You know a while ago i was working verymuch like kind of in that influence a ram as well, while working other thingslike doing photo photography with them and like helping them build theirsocials and what not working for coming. From that point of view, i actuallyfound a lot of them to be very dry and boring and like at times i was liketrying to look for something interesting to self. Like you know,saying like we. 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 should come with it yeah. So i think that was like fromthe side of like coming from deside and trying to help them like sell them self.I actually found it the other way around. I was just like you guys arequite boring here i was like i was like at a perfect specimen and not a human,but you're really not so. That was quite interesting as what like there'sa lot of good good. Looking people out there as obviously need to have alittle bit more, and i mean i guess some of the surete some people. I nowdid one futoshi with a with a lady, and you realized that she was very good attaking photos at certain angers and using certain phone filters as well. Solike that sort of thing, the real life e world is intriguing. Some, that'sthat's exactly right. This one influence a right who i kind of had themajor crush on and she's from the us right and she came met her in melbournewhen she was in melbourne and we were like just was breaking that event and imet her and she was the most she was like nervous and she was like sociallyawkward and, like i just i just heard my glass shattering. I was like youknow. You know that like instagram s, not real right, i know, but you knowjust that looks important to me that you know that i do i do i do know. I doknow now very good. Okay, only no it's a best self version of you at all times.Just you know just check it. That's exactlyharotea! You know when the hearts involved. Sometimes you know you, letyour car down, don't ya, that'th s, exactly that's exactly right. Whatwe'll get some more advice on love from a neck a little bit later in theepisode, i'm sure arn't, white yeah, my love advice goes a long way,although you know i'm in this podcast with two married people. So i don'tknow how much good or damnonian win em on it works really well on terenty, my allmy single friends, so you know the list of sent. Let's loo, let's do maybe alittle bit of background work for our our loyal many of our lord soners. Youknow you can delve as fire deep as you'd like to, but obviously you're inthe director's assistant role. Currently at the moment i know you'vedone 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 getput along that road at a certain period in time like what's your shorterjourney? You got to get here now. I kind of i started doing it when i was akid like i'm from a country family from the uphand ervalley, and i started dancing when i was about four years old at on my momjust put me into i'm, not sure why it definitely wasn't my dad's choice, buti started doing that when i was about four and really really enjoyed that did that forabout eight years, i think- and i also there was a local youth theater inmaitland- could matela repete theater and my grandmother would take me and myold or other to those shows once a year when i was a kid i joined that groupwhen i was about ten years old and yeah just always wanted to do it. Parentsmade me go to uni and made me pick another thing, and so i did that for abit packed it in and moved to sydney to be an actor sensational and obviously you guyscross path there...

...yeah. What were your initial thoughtson a neck? I mean, let's be honest, you know they might have evolved. But whatdid you first think about the great man and the was the kind of tech guy at thevenue that my drama school was at? So you know it's whatever you, your firstimpressions are of the guy. Who does the tech work at any business? That was my first impressions of a neck,especially an ethnic ticu, yeah yeah. He really didn't stray far from thestereotype on that one: hey. If you ever had an issue with yourreports, i fixed him dinner. He and he ebrahim as well. It's great blake, a yeah and when we're working there, youknow he and i both tech, people and mine was comingmore from a theater side, creative side, i guess of theater and lighting andsound, and what not were as an eches gone from the other direction going viacomputing 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 wasa lot of fun to see alex says that like, but alex was always super proficient at.Like the text it as well like really good at it like, and you know, we did alot of like fun stuff and broke a lot of things and fix it on the thingsmostly fixed things, and you know it was like it was never a dull momentbecause we were always fixing something, and that was like the kind of the teamof our replace, because there was always something going wrong, except mymy favorite to the to date to date, episode that i see episode because itwas kind of like the office right work day, but a bit more depressing thattime my favorite to date, episode was thisone time our our accountant, god looked out of the bank account, and there wasa little usb stick that you needed to actually log into it, and so that used be stick was broken orsomething like that right and he couldn't look into it. So i remember wewere like: oh you, let's all try to fix it and alex just goes to me goes well,you fix it. I want to fucking get paid tomorrow. I'm like this go point. Iwant to get paid as otso, not only i'm trying to kind of fabricate a you onticket, whatever is called the password break, the password untentit ing systemfor c ba at an acting school working at acreative industry. So i think that's to this to this state. What i was one ofmy favorite thing and of course i think. Of course i did it so that was veryfunny, as i do not remember this in the slightest, but i'm glad you're happy.The best part was no one asked the questions like quiet really. Just didthat and cb should work on the security tanta's, exactly right. Yeah, very bankcanter, instant transfer baby, this guy yeah. So i it was good memories and this onetime this one time i remember, there's a show to run and like i was runninglate or something like that, which was often the case, and i came into the camin and often i say, often others practically every day, right yeah, itwas a real ocassion when i was on time yeah. So i broke up to work and alex isrunning the show and i was like wait hold on. You can do this. Why haven'tyou talked about this and he goes. This is exactly why we haven't so it was pretty funny. I was. It was alot of fun like yeah and then, of course, there wastimes 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 eyah, that's thebeauty of this fieri. I just want to wrap up this little story right, butthis is kind of introduction all to alex right, so alex was getting marriedright and i was late, his betting, oh yes and i i wrote we woke up as they werewalking walking away from the aisle. I guess, like you know, when you walk out,and the funniest thing was alex, o alice just looked at me and then didthe classic your neck is off, so that was prettyfunny, as also that kind of wraps up our friendship. I guess ses a lot. Yes,you think i'm really great, but you didn't turn up to my wedding cool. No, actually, he turned up late allright if he was a no show with a good excuse, okay, but the fast that he gotthe that shocking yeah to be for him in terence did fly in from melbourne. Ithink that morning and then had to drive up to the hunter valley so yeah.I know it's also fin that morning, yeankton or there you go exactly right.It is what it is. It is a is no, so i...

...can i'll continue on with the questionsnow alis right. So i know i did say we'll talk briefly about sports rightand you're, a big spot fend yeah. So so we on this shut out the two forno podcast by patrick cullen and chris body. Yes, where i'm against hose. I, if noone's, if anyone has on this seven drop in to for nan on ida, come on boys holy mess. Talkingabout cricket. I guess let's stick into a cricket. You play quicker when youyoung right may yeah cool yes, you're talking to me. Yes, i did a little bit.I was not good, so i didn't get to play much of i coached my brother's crockettfor 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'tdo it, i teach it often so yeah. That's that's me, like no nine percent of thethings i do in my life. I s, that's something i found withcoaching cricket in particular, and i played for a lot longer than i coachbut i've. After a couple of years i felt so much more adequate as a coachthan i did when i was playing and there's obviously the pressure of thelive situation and having to perform- and you know just ting to do do whatyou preaching about. I guess, but like obviously, if they're younger, youknow it's a different story, even if you're not very good, if the kids are alot longer than you're still better, and then you can kind of figure it out,but there was just something like in an i never was able to achieve at any reallevel of cricket. I just wasn't good enough. I played for ages and i lovedit like i lived in so much and i practiced all the time like it wasn'tfor that a trying i was just so shit kebur i've spent for i you know twothirds of my life playing it. So it was like when i finally came to thatpolizie. Maybe it was the best day in my life, but but for coaching i clickedto straight away and like i started coaching when i was third in forty andthen i just found i liked it a lot more and like the pressure was still thereto perform. But i like, i felt like the things that i liked in coaches. Growingup were what i wanted to bring in, and iwanted to build relationships with kids and not just be. You know, because iwasn't apparent at the time- and i felt like some coaches are just like extraparents and like they're bossing other kids around, like i like thatrelationship with the younger kids, and i was kind of like an older brother,because i was only maybe you know, four or five years older than the kids. Iwas coaching so that was probably part of it but like, and then it does actually make you abetter player like a coach keep boxing now, and it does make you better at thethe art form, because you have to analyze it and you e, to be able toteach othing is a definitely a different thing like when people say.If you can't do something, you teach it it's not over the the either likethere's a lot of really talented people who aren't meant to be coaches becausethey don't have to biliton people like a nek who can't yeah because, like i taught kids drama since i was like sixty aswell yeah, it's drama ye like i've ben teaching. Since i wasabout sixteen kids drama and i do a little bit ofdance as well a little bit of guitar and then yeah coaching cricket is, ialways find teaching something, makes you better at the thing you're teachingthat you were just saying that yea makes you a better player when youbecome a coach but yeah, sometimes like that's a little bit too late, yeahexactly right to farkoett your understanding of what it's all aboutlike. You definitely can conceptualize things and that's why there are likenowadays, particularly pretty much every sport. Ninety percent of thepeople in the media were x players, and i think i understand why they're doingthat. But you still get your really. You know you're, really smart, mediamembers who don't overstep their boundaries andhave a really good understanding of the game. You mak play it at such a hare athap, massive rugby league fan and a massive massive cricket fan, and sodecent of paramedic hills for the league. What no way i didn't realizethat prod go there as king. What about mitchell moses might fast, i'm so happyfelt like so happy folk. Hopefully it's one of those things where you get theminto origin camp and they come out and they just go to a whole other level.Yeah look what is done to clear. You know what i mean like sure. He had halfside with him, but even a few years ago, like and moses is, i feel like his play-has matured his ability, the like we're kind of shifting topics here, but realvast yeah. That's we'll bring it back to coaching, but his ability to controlhis forwards and to kick when needed to kick and one of them i think it wasluley. Is that the the the five eight for penri one thing he said about yeah.One thing you said about moses is like, as a runner he's really fast and strong.I'm like. Oh, you wouldn't actually pick that up, like you know, he's agood runner, but he said, like he's a fast and strong runner on top of his,you know, half back ball playing ability. He maybe needs to take anextra second when he's kicking penalty goals, but a part on that that was seahard right, i was had the pub there. I was good, you know my drop dry july,asd lasted two days. I was i he is...

...after the races. I was just sitting athome watching it on my laptop while i was doing other things and when mattburton kicked that field goal, i turned it off, so i missed the penalty girl.So so this entire rage of heartbreak that all you guys went on. I just likea t, yeah t. Then i check the score. You know ten minutes later, like thruneand twelve. That makes sense, and i'm just getting all this stuff going. Howdo you miss that a like how take yer it was crazy. It was off that they wentfor a short kick off, they ran, and this was one element of the game that ilike, like that's crept in is that've. Obviously they want to protect thepeople going for the ball, but basically a neck like as a opposingplayer. So if the other teams kicking to you and you're, one of your playersis trying to catch the ball. You're allowed to run in front of your playerto stop the team from caging in as long as you don't run after another playerand try to knock him away. You can kind of just like shield him without doingit. So, basically, a pen of player shit like ran off his line penalty goal,thirty meters out, maybe fifteen in from touch he rushed it. He just sortof didn't. You know he has like this mental thing. He does where he kind oftalks to himself- and i don't know what he does little his little squaze of thearms, but he didn't do it. He just went in and he struck it well, he justpulled it. I'm, like oh he's, fucking rush that, but i'm still glad he gotthe role anyway like it. He deserved. It he's been playing so well so yeahand he's at the right age. Twenty six like that's when you want to get him inthere and fucking yeah, it's a good time to start, i guess to no be behindand cleary in ms. It is what it is, because clear is what twenty four orsomething yeah. But it's just phenomenal. You know best back up halfback, i think in the camp. So that's right! That's right and mose started.It was a five eight for an never know. Maybe one day they can bring it back,but i feel like they want to keep the pinero partnership with just yeah. Itwill be a bit hard to replicate locker first, ten and thirst and cronk, likethat's a that's, a very special pairing as special a couple of halves. Yeah theamazing thing about those guys to s they were play. They could be playinglike absolutely dog shit for their represent, like their regular teams.Broncos have lost eight straight. They bring you in and he's fucking man inthe match. The amount of years of hardbread ers nisaean still trauma thati'm getting over to this day is just year like it what it started on fifteen andit didn't end. I was twenty four i come on and, like you were just you wardbuying every year like you would get gullible your drop, your guard down andthen back and bag the jay again, yes, good time. Good time. That's it is whatit is. Therapist are going to get a lot of cash out of that and what therestrictions will still be on. So it's going to be interesting where they havethe game because they were wanting to put it in newcastle because game threeand equis went to be next wednesday, so the fourteenth was meant to be at andedstadium. Obviously they can't have it now because of restrictions. That wouldtalk you about bringing it up to new castle. They could fit twenty ozeropeople in. I don't know they might just take him back down. I think theyannounced it today that the it's definitely going to newy. Oh reallyyeah, i just not a big crowd, yeah. Well, i think it's about a twenty twothousand capacity. It'll be about thirty. Eh thousand. Do is that's stillsolid yeah. The bat will be rough out. It be still that ansorge well newcastles, no lock a so they're, not great as sydney, no greater sydney'scentral coast mountains and wollongong they're underlock down and the rest is just you know, social business ing, yeah yeah. Westill have to mask up and that sort of thing, but yeah we everything's kind ofopen. So i think that prout'll be full of mart. Yeah, that's right and readnext, obviously, but that's good represented yeah, that's it baby!That's it its upwind w that so i thought it was all of new south wosthat was in locked on wow. I'm not i'm, really sorry senescent ric! That is a big. It goes back to theinterpersonal tion and that's saying something, becausei'm only just i've only just moved back to sydney. It's really he the sydneyslider. You could take the boy out of sydney, not the inia. That's right,especially west in sydney hartley, but yeah, regional, where you know we gotmask. Businesses are restricted, but nothing is really closed down. This isactually the first time since the start of ovid up here in cosier that we'vehad to wear masks even when it started. Last year in march and april, there wasno mask men that yeah right really crazy right. So yeah it's an. I isactually our first. I know no one wants to go there like, but yeah. Well, whatthey do is they cut off travel and, like sixty percent of our population attimes can be brought in bittum, so they would just get people coming up for theschool holidays and the like, you know we have only we've only had like two orthree cases in the entire mid north coast region, which goes from like portmaccari to balena. So, like we've been pretty good the whole time, so it was just but like a lot ofbusinesses rely very heavily on tourism. You know like, like shops, likeobviously like food, particularly around cough harbor chetty, where thewater is like all those businessese. A...

...river like really struggling at themoment or, like you know, school holidays is a massive part of theirbusiness. You know like yeah, lock down, there started right as the holiday didyeah for the for the first third time or whatever it was so yeah. It's almostlike watch. It is like the time it. Oh yes like the time it's almost like theones, but you know then you've got to go down the rabbit hole. Then you wantto pick up the scraps and he really it is it's all going to happen, whether welike it or not. So o, that's, as you know, i actually so, and you might beable to speak to this is a guy who has had experience in the legal industry. Iwas bro side sing, my way through a legal document today and i was readingthrough something called like it was like patient. It has to do with medical, so it's likedoctor, patient relationship and like any medical procedure, is all voluntary.So it's like against our constitution for any medical procedure to be forcedupon a person every any medical procedure. You can get has to bevoluntary, like you're, not you're, not forced to get anything so would thatrestrict them from making vaccinated of vaccinations mandatory? I'm not sure that it's against ourcontestation for a start, just because we have an australia very few explicitright within the constitution and there's been a few things which arecalled implied rights that the high court started kind of gleaning from the constitution, thelate es and the early is but they're very legally one to not really in termsof like the the bill of rights in america and that kind of thing we don'te anything other than i think, freedom of movement and freedom of religion, a right to trial by jury and that'skind of it. The regular standard ones. Yet yeah ver very few things so interms of what our government actually can do in terms of forcing vaccinations-and you know i haven't been at university-studying law for about a decade nilly. 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 makerestrictions like no jab, no pay that kind of thing, because that's whatturney actually try to start doing. That's right, i for vaccinating yourchildren, yeah yeah. You know everyone's got at least one good idea.Yeah! That's a good point! I let us what that's what's happened in multiplestates in the us like they still have i restrictions in placeunless you have acetated, so it kind of makes. I feel like that's what mighthappen. There's talks now about, like i guess. Third part of our government ageis going to people's employment places and vaccinating people there, so thatwill obviously speed up the process and get allowed to get it done quickly. Soi 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 mentally preparing for it a little bit because i don'treally know like it's kind of hard to know, yeah, it's a lot. A lot ofspeculation, but that's right and that's the thing like it would help ifwe had some vaccines to kind of yeah yeah, that's the thing like i get themposata. This second should have been get this, get that this fine oisavailable like sixty five years old and you've got one leg like indre, exceptfor those two hundred kids at what sydney boys hire whatever the hell orhas that a couple days ago, i and i'll better give it to the n kistsas help bugged it up and gave it so ridiculous anyway, and the interestingthing is- and this is being this is what i always find interesting when theconversation flips is for for almost a while, the government has been saying:hey, everyone needs to get vaccinate, everyone needs to get vaccinated andit's been like the thing that you need to do and you must do and then all of asudden there's no vaccine that no one can get back. I, like my workplace atthe moment, like everyone is trying to get vaccinated because we need totravel like fair bit in coming months, and so we need to get. We all need toget vaccinated and just none of us actually can manage to get vaccinatedlike white this and all these or things yeah. So it's pretty interesting andthen and then the other side of it, and they said well, you know, if you'revaccinated at the stated these conversations well there if you'revaccinated, then you obviously you know you might be able to skip out oncertain quarantine and what not so, but that hasn't been the case. That hasn'tmean the case either like someone who was vaccinated, that's a negative fromsydney went to melbourne and they still had the guidin for fourteen days yeah,but the most recent thing has got it: the delta variant, which is yeah muchmore infectious. We don't know how the vaccine, the vaccine was never designedto combat this particular strain they're allowed to change their mindsand neck. It's just the changes so often- and you know i find it reallyinteresting. What so, so the thing that...

...gets me about that is then the thauthoritativeness of when they change their minds. You know, there's not,there's no dialogue that they've changed their minds is just tocontinued push, and i understand you've got to lead people like that,particularly people that are hanging off every word, but it just feels likea genuine nature of it compared to just compared to yeah. There's a lot ofsocial pass in politics who fought to you know who would to think it's theone. Also what happens when you get liberal governments, i'm going to sayit like friendly jordy's, the liberalcapita in alan jans? That's fair! That's fair! I see that imean overall and- and i did say we're going to talk about politics. I knewthere was a natural segati politics. I do it the way. Think term liberal aswell as like in the us, like it's complete opposite, like i don't knowlike how the we stumbled upon that word is right. As a term liberal like itmeans what it is and it was yeah bob robert mense who i'm pretty sure,started the party. I think he was a offshoot from the country party. I erlate s, really. He was prime minister, i'm pretty sure at the beginning ofworld war. Two and then we changed to a labor government aboutforty one. But then he got it back a little bit later and was the longestyeah. I cainta blah blah, but back then liberal men, individual rights andfreedoms, whereas they were standing oppositelabor, which is workers, rights, which is collective rights and that kind ofthing and then yeah. It's just grass now, because in the uk you've got theliberal democratic party and they are, you know, sent to left was at malcolm fraser, the primeminister that got got whitlam alston handed in his resignation to the iron,the nines and said it's not a liberal party any more as a conservative party,so i'm out wow and that guy was a deck and hestill quit them hearty. So i just get yeah where's the party now under thisguise of liberalism, yeah and that certainly progressed.Obviously we had john howard and he was pretty traditionally conservative rightand then we had a fair shift left the same with abbot in certain areas he'seven more rights. I still feel like he was. You know he wasn't. He was similar to what we had bet johnhoward and then now it's kind of good, it's kind of hard, sometimes to get aread on scott morris and, like i guess he's so many things have been going onin the country like he's, had to change, shape and evolve and is like achameleon at times. Like you kind, i read of them the thing i wot withscammel. You can't tell my bias just from that he's professionally a marketing dude.He is, he wasn't a business, a lawyer or a rich business owner or careerpolitician, or anything i just want to. I just quickly want to say for all themarketers out there i'm offended for you guys. So i m not think marketingpeople are bad like seeing. People are bad. Prime ministers, well i'm justsaying that i'm offended that he's a marketer in a prime mister, so they probably son him but yeah like he's his skill is spinand the slight twists and re phrasings and t reframing of things and that'show he's progressed through politics. So his fee progress through marketingand now is a prime minister. When we've had catastrophic natural disaster aftercatastrophic natural disaster, you can't spin that you can't reframe global pandemic and some of the worstbush fires we've ever seen. You can't rephrase that you can't kind ofslightly hoodwink people with a pretty image of bondo beach, so you know he'sstruggling. That's why i'm messaging across the pandemic is all screwed upit's. Why not consistent? He takes none of the blame, but every good idea ishis and the division within state level aswell like that, it's so obvious that they really want to make an attempt toget rid of now but, like i don't feel like there's i feel like this is thewrong time to be. I guess you could say that. Maybe youhave 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 andkind of infinti that regard instead of, but maybe- and this is a portion- maybemaybe that division is happening because of his weakness as a leader ofno go wit, been there a. I blame you for a lot of stuff and i can't blamehim for that. I s! That's right it. It just don'tthink daniel andrews is the strongest leding, there's less things to focus onat the moment like it said to forefront, so they go yeah just just waiting for them to give the the make deny andres the prime minister,because my uncle dan or dan movies...

...arata state on his back and then hebroke it and he broke it. You know that he still to ustedes a fact. It was a little bit of a little bit of a bit,i'm going to be like when old, royat, fucking tories accause, he tripped overhis two year old daughter, who's just got to play for strays like you pullfreaky went through the hard yard, so the rome that is anyway story continuingfellow ye. So i'm gonna, that's, okay! That's okay! I'm going to change up thepace of the podcast and, like kind of take it back as i feel like i've beenasking. We've been asking this question to almost everyone as ball, but i wantto know what this question is because i've been listening to all of yourpodcast. Yes, yes, that's exactly right! So thank you. Listening we at needed.Those extra two listens bud. I really put a pushes across that, so robylisten, no more episodes than i have. I think i've gotten half way throughabout three. That's just because i fuill scream at the way. I speak. Soit's not yeah! You hear you hear the sound of your own voice and you just gonow. I'm out yeah, not just the mistakes. You're like! Oh, what do youdo like just causes me more and the couple honestly the couple i havelistened to, i freaking loved, but i just got to get through that initialpart. You know what i mean anyway, it is what it is base or what's yourthoughts of listening, that's okay! Well, you know just quickly. I'veactually listened back to some of the old ones, and i just like what the hellare. We doing like fix your microphone you decade, so that's very funny anyway.So of my question was: let's stick back, you know almost a year now i guess whenno whole chrono virus, when it first started how what bo were you at? Youknow, how is your life was like? Oh my life, if you mental state fan mentalstay that before it started or after when, when it started so doing thewhole, the me and my wife had just just got back from our three monthshoneymoon. So we think we were in cans in the middle offebruary and then kind of got back late febe. She went straight on to a job.She works in makeup in procedis for film and tv, so she went straight to ajob. I spent two weeks looking for an apartment for a house to move into insydney. We found one got approved in about two days or my made helpless movein that weekend. Lockdown hit about three days later so kind of just timed everything, precorona virus perfectly, so yeah well great. She we just come back from a big honeymoon. She is working like again, she's just kicking girl after girl, eft goaland her career, and i'm sitting around the house playing playstation for aboutthree months was awesome. That's yeah! I very diferent messagingi've heard through all to every single one of my mates that i'm like,especially because i was in a pretty good frame of mind. I'm checking in onmy mates fairly regularly and they're. All you know having a fairly roughrough time, whether you're in share houses or blood away from family,whatever it is yeah, but i'm just you know, kind of livingwith my new wife that have been with for over a decade. Yeah, it's prettygood and i got a lot of yeah. Don't talk to me for a bit because your joyis giving me the shit. Did you have a or healthy nest thing there that yousaved up?

She was on pretty much the only film that wasstill filming in australia across kind of march april may, a remake ofchildren of the corn that they were doing. That was filmingout richmond way in auto sydney and yeah. They just lock down. They put allcarton crew where you know had to stay at their hotel dated also, i am fromher beautiful yeah. So we will fine sounds lak, a dream. I love that.That's that's brilliant and see having a want. No, i really i mean see. This is the loudand clear message out. I hear yea, you know. What's weird, i feel like this isnot now the new, the or the podcast when we spoke to hale and she was justgoing on about how happy she is being married and how many goes she waskicking you co, nineteen. How am i so- and i say i feel like i feel like i nowneed to get married, because that seems to be the answer. Yeah. That's not thefirst step, there's a few steps before that, but you know get your dad to tellyou damn it. What's the steps on what yourdad, okay and your dad married, a younger woman didn't need to he maybejust wait if people estes just just a few more years. You know you now wantmy life to get easy o. That just reminds me of it's. Probably one of myfavorite snl sketches of all time. It's tina, fey and amy polar hosting a gameshow called meet your second wife and it'ss three men in there you know attwenty mis earls and they introduced...

...the first guest. This is your secondwife and she is she's, eighteen years old, she's a cowed at this universitydon and the like. Oh oh, she's, she's, eighteen, that's the same age as mydaughter. They maybe they can be friends. They like yeah your daughter'sgoing to love her all right. Gary meet your second wife and it's a ten yearold girl who walks out and like oh, i don't feelcomfortable 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 et ca, e, etc. Thenthe third one which made america just lose its mind was: i think it wascecily strong playing the woman who walks out and you know, she's in herearlys and they go. The guy goes. Oh, this is my second wife yeah this. Thisisn't too bad. They like, yes, janine is pregnant with your secondwife o. I love that your second wife an yet yeah, that's brilliant! That's a yeah!That's that's up! That's out some south park, the il shit there ye talk you about south park. You knowwhat episode just clicked in my head: the human centiped episode. Does anyoneremember how good was that a getting absolutely scarred by that at yourhouse? I hadn't seen the cinaedi before that moment. I investigated or the theside back adansee i'd heard what it was about, like i think, i'd recently seentwo girls, one cup, so i had a fellow on star i go of what he been said ofhad for us, but i never watched it o the me that i saw said to pad i'm likeman. If this animated joke is hitting me this bad, like i could i couldn'tsleep for about two days. The human said a pad was a terrible idea. Did youwash the human sedeat alex? Yes yeah, it's one of those films that you haveto watch up with friends, because it's weirder, if you watch it alone, yeah,that's most definitely and we nothing but as well. I wish i e lo yeah goes back to an earlier point mate. Ithink what a what a interesting film likewhenever, whenever the writer was riding this film is like you know whatd be great. If i take a if i make a completely different film- and you know atmoutinho, be so unusual if i stick one dude to another dude to another girl,it'd be great yeah yeah and then give them laxatives. That's horror. Writing,though, it's like. What's one fucked up idea, cool got it let's make a film, but in your bloody, your casting agentcoming up to or we've got this great gie want you to buy the middle part yeaof a human center pet of human setoe to like you've seen the first one, andthen you still say yes, metted hell badly, you need. Where is my career?Nowhere, but you know yeah, that's what was it waking a human cene sequel? I amavailable they it's it. It was like it wasn't russia,but it was somewhere like it was in that part of your bright like it waslike the you know, you'd have to be pretty fucked up by the cold weather tomake something like that. I'm sure yeah or something like a serbian film, yeahsure yeah. That's those are next level, those guys yeah. No, i do the mixintesting films when i was sixteen and would have watched the shit out ofthose films. Now, i'm a little bit on now. It's weird e, like you just yourconsciousness, is too strong and you're like oh yep as a kid i've croft it like.I even like even like most horror movies. Don't do anything for me. Ifind him stupid, but something like the conjuring like i feel like it's reallywell made movie and even to that day, if i put the country on like i'll, bei'll, be you know be i'll, be turning it off. Still a bigfan of horror, films like yeah, i those you know just gross out i've seen toomany bad ones. I feel like i've seen too many bad ones. Yeah i enjoy a lockyone, but ah the intentionally gross out, which is you know, no real plot. It'sjust based one idea, horror film to gross you out in here yeah. I grew outof that face. I didn't grow out of my medal phase, but i grew out of thatface. What's your thoughts and wolf creek, i adore of cray as it yeah it'samaze, what you want to taylor, what about in the second one where theydoubled down on his character. I didn't mind it. I because that was my favoritepart, but i feel like the first one was just like the second one was good, butyou can tell like the first one was just more raw. It was just like itlooked like yeah yeah, i feel about the second fool was like it, a hero, alittle bit in that second one. I was weird almost watering from making mobthe tv series is the thing that made the first one so good, and it's similarto kind of the quality of, like my favorite film, of all time, silence ofthe lambs, even though that's the second book in a trilogy, anthony hopkins version of penibleactoris that the first one that he did, even though it's the middle story andwhat makes that much more imprssive of...

...a film rather than hannibal or reddragon. Is you don't know anything about him same as i first of all creakfilm, it 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 ofjustification, morality, explaining his history to try and explain who he isnow removing. That makes it a much betterfilm, a much more interesting film, then, as soon as you start, dippinginto that back story and like saying with hannibal, you get the hannibalrising or against the net. Fli show wasn't there and one as well. Yes, toomuch he it's just it's not necessary. It takes away the intrigue. It takes awaythe interest of what's a really really cool character, it's kind of helppeople feel about the star wars, precol, yeah yeah, but as o, so much money toabout right, like you've got even even to butcher even to it's just like whythose fast in the years, twenty eight coming out next to it's just you can beit's to that. Well dries up, you might as well keep digging into it and nomean like oh my name, machinas yeah. Look at wan johnson, i mean in time tothe rocks credit like he definitely has developed into a pretty good actor, buthe still plays the one role. It's just you know. I am looking forward to blackadam see if he can sort of provide something different. He has played somereally good characters and to to his credit, i actually, even though they'renot my favorite movies of all time. I haven't watched the rock movie and gonelike not enjoyed it. They are all like solid, like i can sit through it, i'mnot bored like the one, the tooth ferry. That's, i lily stayed away from thatone. Now i quite joon where he was that he was a football player who was thedad of the young girls around the saying in that was really good. Ididn't watch to, for, i feel like there was like those two options, and then,thankfully it was like game plan or something like that. One was solid,yeah tooth very is terrible and he d e. You were the target audience. I watchedit because it was so cute was like a like. Eight years old, when that film,that's exactly when i watched it, and i was like this is the greatest thingever you know, but i think it came out when we were like nearly in high schoolbro, not before that and the recon movie me like yeah, just nearly highschool yeah right. I tell you what one of my favorite films is of all timetransporting transporter transporting you ran poling that you and m filmabout drugs or the new film of an e. You were fifteen when the two therecame out ma. This is gestas words, a wow yourseln coring transporting yeah,my favorite films of all time, that's a just so yeah just so well made. I thinkit's just like when i speak about like when i sayfairy films, as in like narrative wise. The way is made, i think storyline,it's just so brilliant. I mean other films are more entertaining that i'mmore probably wouldn't watch it. As often as i watch you know, i want watchtrans transporting as often as i what other entertaining films, but still alltime, one of the best films i've ever seen a jest a question: does this podcasthave like a through line or are we just were just running? Until we run out ofbreath, we went to l when the war presents itself. You know yeah, ibelieve, look. We know it. We nearly hit theward about ten minutes, so we'll just will love it until we want to live it.Did you have any more topics there? An echo was going to look up another one,obviously daniel crag who's, the current james bond, there's his worldwar, two set movie that he was in a comment. Tonet, it's called. Let me just abruptly put the flow ofthis podcast. Yes called defiance, so he is in bellerus in that c, during theoccupation of nazi germany and he kind of plays like a freedom fight. It'scalled to fight t came out in turstan eight, and this is before he was jamesbond or maybe just when he got the role. That's a fucking amazing film, her andlike not a lot happens, but it's the it's, the those are sometimes the bestmovies when they don't just give you the they. Don't just give you the sexstraight away like that, make you crave it and then you get a bit of it andthen it goes back like it's just so e and i'm all for a war film or a coldwar era. Film set in east germany like oh, but give it a year. I live for ityeah. When i was a young fellow, i would i reckon for my early high schoolyears. I went for a couple of years where that was everything i was rightaround the time when i started playing the video games, like particularly thesingle play. Video games, like the multiplayer, just changed it intosomething when it was just like a single player campaign. We did gothrough like my history. My almost the entirety of my knowledge of both wordwars in the vietnam war came through middle of honor and call of guedln a incollege idiot and there's another one,...

...a big red one. One of the early onesthat so good you know, so it is what it is no well. History has always beensomething 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 aworld bar, get it yeah, so yeah, and so all those films i e the s and the two sand. Platoon wewere soldiers, private ryan, behind enemy lines. Is that the wonder is that the willsmith, one which is all have you wat, one thousand nine hundred and seventeen?No, i haven't so that that's one when i think about one of my favorite moviesof 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 part shorsha redivision. I would be willing to fillnineteen one thousand nine hundred and seventeen into top five are. It is sofreaking well done yeah. Definitely right! Maybe that's can be a band of brothers, which is yes, theserious series ye hanks and spielberg produced after they made saving privateryan yeah. That is phenomenal, exceptional way, and that was justbefore, like that was before net fix and that really took off. So we hadn'thad a lot of like series that were like a movie expanded and that was almostlike. I remember it being and channel seven had it like. Prime time like itwas massive that was so freaking good, so good like it took you into obviouslyinto the lives of the soldiers and like yeah, just amazing yeah. It's almost rewatchable worth he actually to be pere literally, as at my parents place abouttwo months ago and saw the box set sitting there and went i'm taking this,i'm going to reanalysis. No i'm half way through rewah it now briant brantyeah, i'm going to start watching, yellow stone. I've heard that's reallygood. I don't know if you've watched tv i eon son, so it's it's set in middle america, it's kind of like a countrysetting, but it's modern and they're, just their own farms and they're justinvolved in all sorts of absolute chaos. But you would fall in love with acouple of characters and i think it's about three seasons and a few peoplelike a few podcast. I listen to and my mother in law absolutely rave andcarries on about it new season about to come out. So it's just mentioned to beexcept well done, but i basically i don't know any of the plot line. I justnow. I know the concept of it, be i don'tknow any of the pot like, but i've just heard everyone keeps telling me. Peoplelive on re times and you'll love it. That's what i've gathered it's so hardfor me to to get into shows, because i know how invested i get but, like iwatch those are for sure waiting for that one animal kingdoms, one. So ithink i might start watching i've been a few months now i actually went backand re watched the marvel series punisher yeah, that is legitimately oneof my favorite things ever to exist. Yeah i got half way through on to theend of nearly all of those i haven't watched the second season. The punisherhaven't watched the last day, a yeah they're, a lot at the end of it like byby jessica jones season. Two and i in lu, cage season to you want to knifeyourself in the in the face, especially that first season of jessica jones wasget legitimately amazing. The second season might be the worst tv series. Idon't know i disants ever made in fields was shockingly baton to episodes,so the first two episodes were good, but i olinian do you know the offenderslike how badly can fuck up a great concept yeah like that was so iffingboring, and then that was even so. Well, it's just a guy that plays the ironfist, like i love david wenham, but even he couldn't save the first season.I d n, i don't love the. I don't love the the also the villains. They werefighting to the kind of the domestical asian characters i feel like they couldhave been on a lot better. They were just very shit and boring yeah the handis, is a tricky group yet to try and represent to it. Yeah just just chuckin the po rosal go. That's it that's fomana, but it's in, but i tathe was in. He was in underbelly. One of the older underbellies they do is so legit. He played it inthe recent. Was it in like arrow and that oh yeah,he was thithter. Your funny is the rite equivalent in marvel. What's his nameis exactly like what exactly is so that any more mentor to one of thecharacters like what do you? What are you go? You have a hole o when yourromanic just just ask it leo up the rasorial ent in my hello, social pat. What are you talkingabout? You have too many beers to drink tonight, good to sleep. I thought i may iron fist had somepower to be good, but then they wind it. It's like yeah an fasts. The showdoesn't tsee, love story that had it just wasso slow and he would like he was losing every fight for the first six episodes.Likee yeah, it was so in good. I adore...

...that character. I adore the iron fist,he's really really cool and also i infists relationship with luke cage andi in fist relationship with dare devil in the comic yeah is tatling all thisyeah. The defenders, the group of these new york superheroes, is awesome and itwas just the most dull boring, and it's just that. One dude who plays in fistis in game of thrones as well, and all he says is i'm the immortal iron fireis like. I don't care fuck off ye provide something he had a look abouthim like he had the he had the look, and he just didn't have much. Yourlawyer is trinity from the matrix step back. What what how good was data reference sure, yeah, six first,especially the first two seasons. First, two seasons were really good and ithink the character who blown season was made when they, after they shit thebed with defenders. So i think it was already yeah. It was already beating adead horse. Ritner, your as king pin is just yeah, perfect, atonal right, sobrilliant dedeviled of existed inside of it, like certainly dead, all seasonto sorry, the punisher. Our detail season to the punisher was in there,but the punisher series, both seasons, kind of existed outside of the outside of the world for the most partfor of his reasons, but yeah, like was understanding of a e. The punisherseries was just a happy accident for yeah is that they popish a rin andpeople lost their minds for the first decent portrayal of the punisher onfilm yeah. They were right. It is on some of the old ones. Yeah, the thomasjane one is vulter, yeah and and body. What's his name, even in alike, benefitdear devil, yeah de i've watched a moment of watha such a jenifer gane. Wea teenager. Thus i really liked that film for john burns always exceptional.I haven't seen a bad movie with him, either he's so good. He was in earlywalking dad as well. Yeah played at it yeah. Lo, that's another good onethat one came out around the same time as the tooth ferry and nick was a bigthat no what's the blue people, the movie wehold the blue pepe, whatever vetita got iversen at a time. Maybe i should allthe smiffle yeah this birth, yeah, no patrick e, so that actually came like a got over shadow. That's a goodwalt move to go back to it is who is it as a great lector? Can petricone,not grass tyson? I would. I was so it's just he's just a great extraoverall. He i wash i mean, have met your mother and then i found out he wasgay, i'm like, but it doesn't make sense you and was he now a it's calledacting? I know that's a thing very good. Acting for a mile guy, he is awfullygalibis. I andoas is gay, even though that's goodfor me, i just don't- is the best market? Is the one thatbelieves the what they seligat. So, as you gonna blott's, what you always say,no, i sella never test their own product yeah, but you have to believein it. Do you believe what you sellin? Yes, i do. You know the good film that justcame up in mine. It's a corean film. It's called old boy. Okay, i don't knowif you guys seen it. No. If you haven't seen it, you should watch it. It's abrilliant film. I won't give way to men to the shit differently. A yeah, that'sa i feel, is such a brilliant film, a friar ridiculous, a yeh. The basicpremise of the the old boy is basically this dude whoowes someone money, ends up getting imprisoned for a while and then topunish him further. They end up putting him with his daughter and they end upfalling in love. So it's in so intent, but that's not really yeah. It's sointent. It's an insane film like say that again,yes yeah, i was like half in a different world because, like a yeah, imake talking no so ta the films but some films about this. I won't give away the plot, so this guyends up getting in prison for whatever reason, that's the reason you have tofind out and he's in prison for x amount ofyears yeah and after the years he gets released right and he thinks he's goingto go and live is with a life with his life. If we live his life, but they sethim up to fall in love with this woman who woman ends up being his daughter,yeah co, i heard you correctly. I don't want to watch this film e, a daughter,that's you was like it such a sin. You know if it's a long lost daughters,pretty no, but cousins are fine. Like you know, i have a tatianso to thissomewhere. I think i think, might have...

...been someone talking about it. Yeah,that's pretty nix direly when it was so hard. So have you guys seen brawl insail block ninety nine with fins forn? I have not. I yea man very much to you.This one was very good. He was a like, obviously in prison and the role heplays, like he's kind of has like this dark sense of humor, and he just haslike this switch where he goes to a really dark place and put a bedding onpeople. Is fucking really well done a it's so different to anything. I'veever seen him an what was that one with it recently cameout on netflix, where you couldn't, she couldn't know like put the toute theireyes come up, but bird box box. I bid bakwa your thoughts of that one. I i ithought it was good. I like it, it's not really watchable, it's not really,but yeah, it's a good concept, but it's yeah one. You sayin it once it's. If iput my dick headness aside right, i think the concept was real good. Ithink that could have been most of the film was fairly good, but some of theacting was sat part and some of the semen of the money on her. That's whyyeah? So i think the film had potential, but it lost a plot because they, youknow they did quite the steti things of like you know, back by the tide, theblack guy that dies very quickly, the film so things like that and then youknow there are a couple of other things that i was like. Well this. You knowthat was like you just did it because that's what you do so, but the film hadpotential, so i don't know yeah it might or like the walking dead cross that sort of clown movie that recentlycame out where they couldn't speak. What was that one like silence, make nonoise fuck him tarring a quiet place, a quiet place yeah. I let make no noise. That's a terrible description. That'sjust like an ominous warning at the front of like a moody, teenagers pater, it's a great yeah. It's actually was aquiet place, so it's like a cross between the walk and get in a quietplace that bird box the go take from ecii. Don't know this podcast withmargaret and david at the movie. Hey. What do you know? It just goes downrabbit holes and we, the podcast, has been everything that i dream about.Talking to people. I want to get that. That's another, get out! That's a good,a great film! That's very it's a good film get out. I yeah! That's one insanefilm i mean they did the within. I anything me for a second, oh, yes, myyeah, that was pretty legit. I watched the trailer on youtube. I'm like idefinitely have to see this yeah, i'm from my understanding, because it'sjordan peel from k and peel who yeah directed it and that's right. As far asi understand that he made that film, because he he was trying to get into abit more acting in films and television and i'm pretty sure he was just getting putup for the really shitty stereotype roles just again and again and again,even though yes, he and kegan michael kaya, you know some of the biggestsketch comics in the country he's just getting this shit roll after shit,right or shit roll where it stereotypical black guys are a typicalblack ay and he just went. You know what fuck it i'm going to make my ownmovies with goods going ether yea i can nailit now is only that hasn't missed. Yet such that was one of those movies likeit wasn't wasn't, obviously, as like thriller, not totally a horror, but theway the characters start to unravel. Like that's. For me, it does more to methan a lot of horror movies, because i, like it's a with your head yeah, that'sright, that's the way, but there was a happy ending. It's like these moviesnever have like these legit good endings, and then he made an the like.Oh no happy endings cool thanks, yeah appreciate it so yeah, but that you know the bitch died soanyway. So it's a now! We are at that our mark so who wewrap up the podcast. Now i'm gonna get a coot sport you base. We did talkabout for very briefly an always do another one. You know that's right,yeah, on jasus cricket, my stuff could just cricket cause the two on podcastdidn't run last year, so i'm kind of pentele s talk about ashes around thecorner, it's good ones actually very soon or the end of the emat yeah. So a fewmonths i am so excited for i'm so excited for the boxing to tensely.Can't talk any more about the hour mark mat you missed our car. No, i was gonnaas in life alex your few years older thanus right in life. What's in 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 tostand up for yourself.

Do what makes you happy? I don't knowand tell more people you love them yeah. Even if you don't don't let people likei kind of mono that i do kind of life- is try not to leave any interactionwith someone where they would leave it worse off than when they first saw you. That's cool that i would av that ahorror lief, but no that's kind of it, but don't start an interaction withsomeone and leave them worse off than when it started when it started. Yeahyeah. That's what i like to think about bringing joy into sins life that maybethey didn't have, and even if they don't like you for it like it doesn'tmatter, you attempted to do it right. So yeah, that's very good! I'm going touse that for my dating life, i will cut you, don't have a dog so like the orisk, o them on the tender buyer to see way, o s very pleading, don't leave aninteraction with someone where they feel worse. Don't a is yeah. I she'sgot like a motivational. Quietis he's display picture and his photos are likehe's at the mosque or he's got a fed of his mom and he's got a live, laugh love! Yes, that's theclassic lover background in the court at the front. That's what you need!There's always a nadir! I married! Well i mean this. Isn't i mean i need to getmarried fast. Huh is this just happened i like? Might you might be in the rightculture for those fast arrangements? I do not, and i've no part of this auntiesaid auntie has said to you multiple times to say the word, so it couldhappen. It could happen if you know anyway, maybe my last point we can. Icould quickly dell just a little bit in. Obviously you know we're speakingbefore about the trauma involved with being a new wils fan. I would argy thetrauma involved. Being an he was fan far exceeds that we had a teller one of wooden spoonsand you know turstin season sand. One like you know we can just go on and ontean five. Actually, two o five might be the worst, because we as the waslike a hind, did his acl in the first match of the finals, which we won yeaand he was effectively yeah best tackler, the best tackler and thebest ae in the world. Yeah. Isn't it a yeah ways, put thirty points on us andanyway, as you know, that was one season. Actually, i didn't know until iwas researching it because this year, in the enrol and eagle, i've never seena season where the top eight in the bottom made is so far separated. Likethere's been that many forty and fifty plus, like all big margin, games likeit's like the level is so far separation we got was lit record thatyear, yeah so tes and one we got it. So we had the most points in pedro forabout a hundred and fifty or so away in the foreign against t is like thedifferential case. They've been doing really well so that could go butcompared to maybe the last. Let's call it since thuran sixteen and when wesort of had our most recent string ish of good form, except at that wouldn'tspoon into the tea, except for tertain or seven. Well, that's right! You know,we've had back to back. You know. We've had a few fourth play. Things were eve,a lot of both game in the final spit regard us. What do you ha? You havehaven'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 and tesn't fall in wid anyway, sothis year. What are your thoughts like, i feel, a little i don't know we had acouple of bad losses to manly and rabbits. It turns out those two teamswent on their days, particularly be in the wichart like just a freaking age.You can do that to many sees in your god, blody god help the other timeright, but the last couple of weeks there was a lot of errors against a penof panthers, but i feel like there was a lot of good to take out of as welllike we didn't. There was ships in momentum and times where i've seen theteam give up and let a few easy tries in like our defense kind of kept us inthat match. So that's yeah i at at the moment. The thing is, i'm always i'malways very nervous and i'm always looking for where wango blake isstanding on the field. He's the old taker angi yeah, if he'stwenty five meters in a fack, but you can feel like i'm always very, verynervous. But you know, upperco is a really good. Defensive center got somegood wingers coming through so like with hayes dunster and what not,if, if it's not this year, and it's unlikely that it will be, but i thinkwe were edging there to a really really good squad and we've got papalina foranother twelve months. So what absolute by the ears- and i t twentys he's onhe's like just above on contract wow he's the second coming of for fore mymind. He tartone, that is phenomenal and brice cartwright is going to tidyhis game up and yeah, like, i think, he's really a trojes from a string ofinjuries. Like he's a guy that, like at at the top of his form through thatbrief period, is home like he was. You know, astraea ity, so if he gets backto there every time, i see him to do a kick. I want to kill him yes, exceptfor that one time that he kicked for moses ye or like yeah ca. You get awaywith that, pretty good yeah, you get t...

...one, but he's bore handing like evenjuniper big number. Ten, like he's a hundred and thirty kilos like we've gotfamily friends who are unfortunately for them, tigers, fans. Oh, we go to ta the banquet we got to theeaster monday. Game is always paratiming bank s era. I really is no.I was at the first, it's awsome yeah you get bertegot with stands. Of course,it's like a cauldron like rod leverin, i my deah brother, absolutely raveabout it. It's beautiful, but yeah. We go there every year and the link upplay from reed many does about a ten meter past at junior polo. He doesabout a fifteen meter path to moses and all of a sudden. The balls were on theright side of the field and there other side of the post- and it just goesmoses, gatho savo, try but yeah a on a again and you've got your your prop.Your big fridge size, front rower, throwing these twin mete bullets out tothe left, absolutely for no, how he didn't start each origin game as the number ten yeah does my head intotally like he wanted to use him as like that sort of impact i don't givehe got he's got no, but he's got eighty minute cardio. That's the thing abouthim. Like he's not one of these people and it's a re like el yeah, but he's n,he went down to camera because he he had to leave paramede because he wasgetting in with the wrong crowd and do it as i wet camera for a couple ofyears yeah. I remember that that's right and then came back and it's justfit a fast b, heavy. Yes, strong and bold. I can t buddy. I mean lovinusbeen hanging out with michael jennings, but maybe that's where god from tribut andhe's got this on yeah. Well, that's exactly right, andyou know in saying that i am my opinion for the most part and in most sports on on performance and naming drugs haschanged because of just the amount of professional athletes. I've heard saythat the amount of people that are on it that are just have enough money toconsistently come up with new ways to take these drugs and hid. These drugsis unbelievable, so i don't feel like it's as big, but if you like a lot ofpeople, think of one or two p, and maybe an australia difference too,because we don't quite have this same amount of money. But i look at thatmichael jennings kind of guy he was in his mids. He made a bit of her careerresurgence. He was nearly as as fast and the strong as he'd ever been. Hehad a go as, and so when i found out it didn't surprise me at all, like youdon't regrow more muscle than you've ever had in your ties. You know afterfifty years of having cocaine. No, no, i wa steroids because i was going to say i've donecocaine. It's it just it hanes zero performance for about fifteen minutesas e steroids prayer it does make you feel like your performance has beenannounced. Oh no, i'm self aware you're not talking about to dick. Are you nowjust? I wasn't, but you know, while we're here yeah. Well, that'sright! So yeah yeah so glad that you're in the ol fan, there's always somethingwe can go to the world with to yeah. I feel like a niches, been quiet forabout the last ten minutes and the sorry he tried hard yeah. He tried it'sbecause i stop at footin like it's like. I i like to you know i'm one of thoseones with like trotul. I'm like i have a trophy to say. I go for ills, but youknow really. I don't want from sis yeah land. You do don't really watch it. Youknow is a young as a really big nfl fan. Like i followed the nba baseball golf.I watched everything and now i've sort of since really i've become a fan ofemma and the us, an particular like that takes up so much time becausethere's a twelve month port now that's expense, yeah, and so i've got a littlebit of cricket even that the last couple of years. Since what happenedwith theves smith and those boys i sort of got turned off at a bit. I also wasplaying and watching it to all month year round, like i watched every gamein the bb in like two and sixteen like so i kind of like kind of like wentreally hard for it, so i kind of like need some time away, but since then it's really just leagueand man, boxing sit like sometimes anythingof have been golf in baseball, a anything of em most to get it in me.You can do it. I've recently got back in a little bit of baseball, justwatching youtubes and not actually watching games. There's a japanesefeller named show hey otani. He plays for the la angels. He pictures plus ahundred miles per hour. Bombs home runs so he made the all side, teamers abatter and a pitcher and he's fucking six foot five and he's lightning, quickand he's japanese, just great that's phenominal. They love american sportsand they've been some of the best at those sports. They just went yeah fuckyou we're going to do this. Thank you very much. That's right! I, but thisplace the for that's exactly what i was going to say like apart from the usamerica's past time like baseball. Its second home is a is definitely put ait's just like cricket. India is the big one and then there's england t youknow, and then there's here like in...

...terms is like it. The other way rightthat, because it's an english game and then they just kind of talk, is she tothemselves and went ha and then the indians grew to love an event eal likecurrently anyway, because ninety percent of the world's revenue comesout of india. Doesn't i've heard that statistic float around i've done aworld raserie revente doing well for global n? That's why the real power house, no nine everettewould. This is this is a talk for another day i think, but the b cc the bc ci has almost infinite power with cricket, but you know influence yeahdrs, i mean that would come to countries, and i am not opening thatkind of worms, because we will be here all night highly and is the dishes bungle dis, ci. Definitely r,definitely is that's black tom, the best da rather this international classin. That's allright! That's any last thoughts there an e mind, it's been so good to haveyou an it's been good exception is a good, a chat. This has been a good mate podcast, you know yeah, i'm prettysure this is like a really bad podcast from any real metric about what you'retalking about, but i've had a lot of fun. Well, that's what i mean. So youknow what do you mean by that o cause? We have no focus. Well, that's a that's!Those are the best ones. It's just like it's just like the girlswith fat asses on instagram. They provide no vout, no nutritional valueto you, but they get the most like tuta's good. Now this s been good. Thishas been good, i think, there's another podcast in there, but cricket. I thinkthat's just focus on cricket plenty, more o yeah an we could go yeah. Wecould go to more serious topics as so which we did touch on here and there imean i wasn't living at the moment. We need a bit more laughter, i feel, likei still think.
