It's like a you, know person, but I went forsuit. It's like a limited vocabulary, but also an extraordinary one. Like allthe middle words are gone, you've got like modern Internet slang and thenlike eighteen hundred, like romantic literature and open inbetween, and I skipped Harry Potter yeah, it waseither you know Dostoevsky or mad magazine.

No, let's saveit for the podcast yeah save it. Let let's talk about this for the benefitof the people. It's terrible! Really. I think I tweeted once at like say a for.The podcast is like the saddest thing. Friends can say to each other. I it'sso it's so grim. I know an got of the in a friendship. That's so strong,there's good! This could drive a wedge between us, Yeah Lias I like give friends Michael andSarah do a podcast and their husband...

...and wife. I feel like that would besuch an interesting relationship to be- and I mean their podcast is about nineis cartoon, so I guess they can yeah limit it to that. It's not like they.They got a real dark secret. I got T so for the pot set for the podcast.Okay, I've been sleeping with a dog who you got to know the line Michael a yeah. It is. It is a hard thing, butI'm so Asia, dog sex, podcast dogs- I didn't mean save it, for this Parti,save it for Ale podcast, the one we do on the dark web come on. Oh Man, I really want to go into a riffabout a dog sex podcast. I know, doesn't see the VIBE here. Yeah we're going to save that riff for ourother podcast Y. AH, no! No! This is all this is all I everso UN scripted. What you seeing now is extreme podcast ing. We would talkabout dog six if we thought it was funny enough yeah, but we're not goingto go down that road. We're going to talk about to mids man. I've beenthinking some of thinking of some ideas for for creative stuff. You know forthings I've been writing down in my big book here M. I was sitting I've been trying to writea lot. I was sitting at the other day and I was looking at the bamboo yeahbamboo on the on the trees, and I was thinking what a people saybamboozled and you know it means to be surprisedor confused, and I thought I you know what, ifthere's some kind of thing where, because bamboo, it's not a surprisingtree to me, yeah, it's kind of straight up and down it's got leaves nosurprises. Why do people say bamboozled? Do you have any idea? I don't know Imean. Is it a? Maybe do you use Ben Buddha set traps? No, you personally sever traps, but I'm suspecting people in the communitybamboos. I do you know me, I'm a Trafiford, but BEMBO is not mypreferred materials, always consider your urban trapper one of the few. It doesn't have that spring of you knowof a gum tree sapling or something like that. You can really get around yeah.Now it's it comes from the English settlers whenever they know when theywere conquering part of Asia, and things like that he'sthe the locals would often lead them into the bamboo forest rightso that youknow yeah. You know when a British explorers were exploringor yeah, and that would that would confuse them yea in order to get awayfrom the settlers or from the from the you know when they are invading acountry or whatever that yeah when they were in the bamboo forest was all overyeah. It would be tough to get a get a gauge and where you were, because itall kind of the same sort of looks kind of the same yeah, but it is, there isbamboo trees, yeah they're. Quite similar yeah, you know if Gumtreeforest yeah, you can go. I that's the big knobby one. Yes, the other one, the less no be one yeah. I know exactlywhere I am Ye, don't feel ashamed. If you have got lost in a gun tree forestyeah, that's I've been lost in the bush. It's terrifying, yeah, okay, but bamboo. That's a whole new level gameover yeah yeah. You can be an expert at exploring. So I as trying to write a joke that Icould do on stage now Jack. I am under the pump. Yeah coved has kind ofrecovered quickly than I thought, and I've got to do a couple of gigs thisweekend. Yeah. I think everyone's a bit cooked. Now,it's like we. I think we were prapping for this kind of infinite like well. Maybe one day I'llput on the old stand up shoes and the traps where it's just like not nextweekend, you better not do any old stuff. I mean looks like a bit of dustoff. There is old, black and white leather shoes that I use when I go tostand up, that old t, shirt and jeans. Yeah got a glass case on the on the wall. When I go to a Geek, my girlfriend says:Oh, the stand up shoes on Ternight, someone's Gonta get like yeah, neverthought I'd say these again tell you that honey yeah. So I was I was thinking singing.There could be a thing where I'm like you know, explain: Bamboo, it's not aconfusing planet spread up and down. For example, if a friend said to me Nick, I just saw a car with legs. Itbamboozled Mei'd, be like wolf,...

...that's not a good way to describe a carwith links, because that's pretty surprising and bamboo, not a surprisingplan, as I said before, one stem leaves straight up and down nothing surprising.But if someone said Nick, I was War Wall Award Ouzle, it is, has war orkards that eat bananas, YeahCrazy? That's a botanical surprise! I did not see that coming well, local. How did you say well, WalWal, I dosal that sounds like a one of those like mid nines like pop punk festivals, yeah.You know, I mean we're like blank one, eight two and like smashing pumpin, yes,fasting pumps and play we got to get to California tomorrow,Wallaroos. All this is on it's gonna, be crazy. Walks were big, all get organat the start, yeah and then it's got limp is good to see yeah yeah exactlyone of those ones where they had. They had extreme sports on at the music festival as well. That's kind ofa thing in the old day. Isn't it yeah used to get it used to get everythingat a music festival may be there? I'm only basing this on the episode of theSimpsons, where homers get shut out of a cannon, that's anything to go by thenI say O age a yeah times I forget about it about that festival and then Jack.Like yeah. I saw this on a cartoon. Yeah I read about it in Latin history. Cap has been aliveforever. That's the other thing. That was a thing I think we discussed itonce yea my girlfriends about ten yearsyounger than me, and we're watching the movie mid Nines, which is about the S D.I remember it. Yeah Wotan, Clean Song came on I'm like is a good routinecleansing and my girlfriend goes. Oh Yeah, the woutan clean I heard aboutthem on a podcast once I was like Whoa. That is, that is a definition of theage CA. When you hear the music and you hear about the music yeah, then youknow yeah. What do you think it is that that's such a like? We can intellectually understandthat people are different ages and it doesn't bother us at all yeah, but assoon as someone's like who is pink, Floyd they're do like why good m yeahlips people out some yeah yeah man. I think it's just because, like I guess, we even h like a fair bit older than you.I still grew up in kind of a modern age. I guess- and so did you yeah like aweird computerized, modern age or something like that. I don't know whatit is, but before that there was that gap boy is like who you know yeah or actually I'm probably wrong.Well, I think I was kind of like the last age group of where, like I most ofmy understanding of Shit, was pre internet. HMM, like I think theInternet was like what to come in when I was like twelve or thirteen orsomething yeah yeah also you've got the S, sevens were pink, Ford is from orwhatever, and it's kind of it seems like an you can say this about every century ofmusic or whatever, but the s kind of seems to have that iconic era, that'skind of a little bit more iconic than the others. You know around the s e thebig bends are kind of still living forever. I think their time will kindof you know fade out as time goes longer, yeah whatever, but right now inour age, they're, still bigger or as big as they've ever been yeah, like, like Bob Dillon still being alive tripsme out so much yeah like I view him as like a interesting historical figure,and then you watch the news and it's like Bob billains no album is out. I be like if you, if you found out likeNapoleon that a new war yeah, but that did was done yeah. That's whatI was thinking. I was listening to mark man today and when I was in an episode,because I think what little Richard died like two or three weeks ago andhe's like the beetles covered, his songs, yeah and then you know, Georgeis dead. Yeah and John, but John, you know not natural causes, but, like George died, kind or of natural causes,wasn't he stabbed yeah? But then he lived through that okay yeah livedthrough the stabbing. The moment there was like. Do you think? Stamping isjust a nit man, you get that you get old enough. You can't run away yeahyeah, you know you got a just an inevitable part of life. Yougotta, you know you can watch what you eat and stay healthy, but you're goingto get step. One day, yeah yeah, like Lenin, was assassinated, fair gang. Youknow a man. He was young enough to duck out of the way. Yeah, that's a murder. All Right!...

You couldn't run away, yeah, that'snatural, it was hovering above it and that's the thing about a assassins.They only kill the young. You know but stabbers there relentless that will stab someone in a wheelchairwalking frame. It doesn't matter yeah, it's two things that are guaranteed inlife text and tappings yeah. So yeah. What were we talking about? OhYeah, yeah? So imagine the beetles they cover. You cover sorry you're, theBeatles. You have a little Richard Songs and then he still lives longer than s. Some of the members of you bendyeah like that would be such a spin out, because, usually you see the old guythat you lived in the shadow in die before you yeah. Definitely it waslittle riched. You know. I loved watching all the I mean I can't be like I was some die,hard fan who has devastated way, died or anything ye like the all the news,footage and stuff. When you see him like coming up in the s like Y, U soused to or sits even I guess like, but you so used to seeing music, thenwhere's, like so conservative, and it's all like everyone's in a suit andthey're like Oh, my sweet heart Dan by the river, and then you see him andhe's like really just screaming it. I feel like I get excited any time. I seesomeone playing the piano standing up, yeah, I'm like he's breaking everyboundary, a man. I love it yeah, it's so cool and he was gay and work fut. He had all the odds if you had inthe S Jesus Christ yeah. I got a lot against you. You know to go up against that. Just what a trooper and I have thatmuch enthusiasm. Do you reckon Drinkin? That's what makes old music special waslook. I know I know there'll be trail blazers in our generations to come orwhatever, but really those guys they had the odds against them. They really created something new likelike Mark Baron said this. He said when you you listen to someone like LittleRichard. You become a student yeah, a student of where this is where things came from.This is where rock and roll came from. Yeah like this. Just didn't start onesmall. You know a faith, not more started new metal. You know and started. You know, wrapcombined with rock and roll yeah. No and the same with was it. You know, bring the noise. Was it run DMC yoms, an Ero Smith when they were wrapping together or whatever yeah, butno one is really going to talk about that yeah. The way you know or fifty cent kind ofstart, a mumble rap yeah, because he was shot in the mouth a because a shotin the man like I don't want to say. I don't wantto be one of those guys that says I says sorry says yeah. Well, you theydon't make legends like that. Any more, but they kind of they kind of don't Iguess in a way yeah I mean it's interesting like you got to, or at thevery least we won't know until like yes, it could be like fifty years later andthen we'll be like oh man when they were rapping and singing at the sametime a change, the game, but probably no hun. You never know we could be rob Thomas with Santana Yeah I'll, be like the first guy who sort oflike was whistling while playing the guitar at the same time, that'll be allwhistle music in the future. Yeah. Definitely- and it's like I thinkpart of it is that is so. You really were going putting much moreof like a fork in the road and like what you are doing with your life, like,I think it's pretty. You know like you, may do comedy and stuff, and you cankind of just talk to people and be like Oh yeah. I do comedy, and you know it'snot like. It's not like. Everyone on earth has a nine to five career jobthat they're going to work at the same job till they die like, and I thinkthat kind of was it for so so long was like you're in the military or you workin an office or you're a engineer or your builder, and that's what you doand you have to take a day off and you don't get a different job or doanything and that's it and I, when you live in that kind of world, and thenyou like I'm, going to make a crazy piano music and that's it yeah. It'slike your so much more of a maverick than now it's like you're, like Oh yeah.I do comedy and you can tell anyone and they'll probably be like oh yeah. Youknow I have a loi make electro music on my part time.I got a ethical saddle start up yeah I like art on a son Yeah, it's kind ofnormal, I'm on it, yeah yeah, that's true man. That is so true. I wasthinking today also a yeah, it's funny when you said I love anyone who plays apiano standing up, yeah, which is so cool.

Did you listen to that span? PODCASTabout John Madden? Oh, maybe a while ago he's a footballcommentator yeah and he goes. I never commentated a game sitting down. Ialways did it standing up yeah and I'd open the windows, no matter how cold itwas to get all the smells of the game in to get all the temperatureeverything so it was like. I was at the game, no matter. If I was in thecommentary box or whatever yeah you guys, I never sat down. I always hadthe windows open and he changed the game of commentatingfootball yeah totally. You know, after think about what can I do andstand up that hasn't been done before that that can yeah yeah into the game? Yeahyou got to push it. I was talking to my friend on scup yesterday and we werejust talking about joke ideas and stuff and it was like. Oh I could say this. Icould say this and it's like funny ideas, but it's always the same kind ofshit and then she was like yeah. I might do a show, would just oneboob out and see how long it takes for people to get used to it. Yeah I waslike fuck, that's good, like that's so much more interesting than just likeyeah doing you ever notice how Ubas wacky yeah it'd be cool. If you want tobe even crazy man, if you were a brave comedian yeah, you would get one boobimplant he hit out yeah, but you're always be known as acoward for everyone fuck every everyone's, a cat e than that. Oh Man, yeah that'd, be great and Icould get it anywhere. It's the thing, but man isn't it isn't that so look notto yeah, I'm not! I'm always one of those guys of rags on stand up. It's ashite thing. It's the worst thing ever and yeah, I'm kind of ashamed of it'skind of true in a way, but isn't it isn't? Doesn't it show how kind of shitout our I don't know part time profession? Is that James, a casterstarted out one of his shows, where he's just on his knees and does like a fair bit of it on hisknees like the first fifteen minutes or whatever, and I was watching that showI mean number one: not everyone could do that because he's writing isflawless, yeah, flawless comedian and he's a young man with strong knees.Yeah I see an old bloke try and do that the brittle bones, yeah and and plus,be afraid of being stabbed. You Young Guy, can just jump straight up onthose feet and get away. I put a thin out Rudine er, but I remember watchingthat show and going wow. Wasn't it mine blowing that he started out on hisknees? Yeah, isn't that say how UNCREATIVE I am and how UNCREATIVE myprofession? Oh totally, it just says. Well you got to see this show the dudestand up comedy this guy. Does it on his knees? Yeah the first not the wholeshow no, no just the first fifty little bit the star. It's great is the king of madness. This guy yeah,you see like the stuff people get like known for as well like I've seen I'vebeen really watching that, like a lot of thirty rock kind of during whileeverything's been locked down and there's yet that the comedian, who justwears a hat with funny words on it, yeah yeah and it's like JudaFriedlander yeah and I haven't really seen. I stand- I'm not having to go inhim at all, but it is funny like he was. I feel like pretty famous for a while,just because he yea wore a funny hat like that with it. It's like that. Guy We're talking aboutone of the episodes who smashed watermelons on state. Oh Yeah, GalagherGallagher. You know once again, that's you know his name straight away, one of the most famous comedians. Youknow, anyway, it doesn't matter, but I forget how we got on this track. But,oh, we were talking about your bit, which we didn't get any further withreally but the bamboozled. And what did you call it? The plant, the orchid war,Orca Wallo, could have losed. It was what Yeah Yeah. If Self. My friend Ed me, I just saw a car with legs. I was right,I'd rather be em. Boozle me I'd, be like okays, it's not surprising at alla bamboo, I mean that's a surprising notion, but not a good way to describe it. I wouldhave thought war or could US alt? You know because war orchards, they stickto a wall and they been honest. That's a botanical nightmare. That whole thingis confusing to me. Now that joke isn't that good, but yougot to admit it's got legs now. It's totally dumb to fine does have legs mentioned in the joke.Yeah does have legs mentioned, and then I say that and yeah. That's kind of thewhere I got where I got it so far, but then my friend told me, soI won't explain in the joke that it...

...means I might do it at the end. YeahBritish, that's where the word comes from, but my roommate told me whosometimes so full of Shit, but he speaks confidently. We always tease himabout it. Yeah, because, like man did you ever think about we're going tofact check this and he's like? Oh Fuck, don't fact check it, you like well, whydid you say it? He said this. I said the growth rate of a bamboo plant is alot faster than most plants, making it surprising like that, but it's still the growth rate of a plantlike you, never walk out and go or wall another mill today. Now this issurprising yeah, it's not such a growth rate that it would be the word. Thatmeans surprise, but like also a yeah yeah, it's got to be very speedy. Yeah Man I just planted some bamboo and mydog was wandering over the top and it impaled him right through the bellythrough the skin in the same growth rate, sped right through him. Now, nowonder they say: Bamboozles yeah eat your heart out, warworker yeah, so that's kind of something I wasworking on. I don't know if it's any good, I think that's great yeah. I think Ithink I might try it out. I think there's it's one of those ones, menwhere I think the parts that I want to work won't work, but other yea, I think it'll be great because it'll be you'll just be in a iookin. The nextfew weeks of gigs you'll just be in this sea of people going like a quarantine, prettyweird yeah, the audience will be like yeah. We know look how far apart we arespread out here. You have to buy a meal just to get into this pub. We know it'sweird. I was talking to friends the other day about year. This stuff,that's going to come out, like you know, imagine if Annie was in coved like I'll,be back, that's going to be a real tree. It'sjust like those. You know those like real old crusty, like crew, ship kindof Comedians, who just haven't changed their act in like in like twenty years,but yeah. They obviously have to change it a little bit to just acknowledge.What's going on in just like real yeah, just the crazy gymnastics trying to getthere like nines references to somehow work about quarantine, somehow, likeyeah, there was no people at the Melbourne demons game, but that's the most people I've had foryears. I mean that's solid, you gotta yeah, soyeah I was. I was trying to I've been trying to think of. I don't know aboutyou, men, you and I are always trying to think of new ways to not you know we don't want to beshocked. I don't want a dirty kind of stuff, anew way to get to people yeah without without relying on things, bout, acrutch it and find it very difficult, yeahdifferently. I think that's been a big thing for me, O, but not being able todo gigs is like yeah realizing how kind of unimportant the writing isreally not unimportant, because I love it and it's and it's yeah the mainthing. I hate, lazy, writing, but like that, that's the minimum, that's thebase line, and then what I need to focus on is like. What's the next levelof interesting thing, that's going to make people go like wow. That was aonce. I've never seen anything like that. That was fun. You tell peopleabout this yeah yeah. It happened to that kind of stuff yeah. I think mylast show idea about traveling around Australia Toxid, I'm going to do it. I didn't have like that mad punchinessabout it, because there was nothing really rudein an hmm and it was very different for me to just do a whole story, but I ri still regard it as like avictory yeah because yeah I wasn't relying on anything anyfucks or any fucking. You know rude stuff or anything yeah that, but it's also very very hard not to putthat in not to put that little shock bed in or not to put that yeah put those bits in and it keeps you up at night yeah Iever do well. I would be good again. Oh definitely- and I think it's like youlose track of this, but it's like you only it's it's what you, what peopletake away from the show, not just what they have the react when you're in theroom. You only see him when they're in the room M, but it's like, if someone'slike just machine gunning and the swearing and just screaming it's kindof you just reacting, and it's in you probably do make a laugh or a noise.You like a yeah. This is something a yeah, but you never think about itagain ever in your life yeah, where, if you do something, that's kind of youknow different and sweet and original, and you know they never going to getanywhere else. It might not. You know like set the world on fire in the roomyeah, but people might remember it like...

...ten years later and we like always sawthat guy did that thing. That was great yeah man yeah. I often think of you probably know some good examples ofthis, and I you know I love the Bamean they've got that song your party andit's like one of the funniest songs ever written. It's got no jokes and itjust about a guy and his wife going to a party and it's written in this verykind of a style with a saxophone he's like Ye, the wife and I thank you verymuch. It's a cream puff and Bourbon and the music was louder. You know it'sjust like a real funny song yeah, because it doesn't rely on any jokes.It just encapsulate a genre. It's like this parody of what music was like atone point. You know this kind of yacht kind of yacht rock whatever, and it's just so funny to me and I'mlike. How can I do that on stage without relying on any of thatyeah yeah? It makes it hard. You know we,this other song, called Polo Asado and it was in their experimental phase.They had this thing with a they took a lot of drugs and they were like nobatter ideas. Yeah, no matter what idea you bring it's good and there's a songthat I really love, and it's just a guy ordering Mexicanfor like four minutes he's just ordering Mexican yeah and I love it. Ithink it's great I've. I've listened to it all the time, I'm like how can I? How can I just dothat? You know what a man like yeah right in the right way there is.There is a funny way to deliver a food order without relying on any jokes yeah.Oh definitely, I know if we can make that admission, don't be rat masion,because I think that's a tough thing with like, if you're doing some kindsof summat forms yeah you you make them as they are and then there then they'reout there and people can get them if they want like if you make an album ora book or something that's the relationship where, like I remember,reading this author saying like I don't try and make everyone like me, but even if one an only one and ten peoplelike me yeah as long as that, one person really really likes me yeah. I'mfine I'm fine forever and it's like that works if you're a an author or something, but if you'relike if you're a comedian, it's like, Oh yeah, you bomb, every single kineasis like I yeah of the twenty people. There's like two psychopaths their mind:it's not a good gig e. just you like. I was like that at one point, man whereI just would get low crowds, but everyone to go man great work. Yeahwere I come to every show and you just see the same ten people, whatever yeah, I gotta spice something up here and youguys bring, maybe all your mates they become disappointed as well. They'relike well this guy. I thought he was going to be good yeah. You do somethingthat I was wrong. Yeah, I think he's funny, but I'm rock yeah man anyway. Have you got any ideas, manyeah? Well, I had an idea that I thought that it sort of came out of hanging outwith you that I wanted to bring up with you, because I think it's you mentionedit to me the other day and I thought it was really funny. I want to dig into it,but it was like because I went to a dinner thing atyour house the other day yeah and you know, despite doing comedy and podcastand stuff, I don't. I don't talk very much like I'm. Not a super. DoTalkative Guy and I think that's good a lot of the time, because I think peoplepeople assume that you're quite thoughtful people. If you don't talk alot of people, never think you're any it really and the other thing is like when you dotalk, people tend to listen up like if you're quiet and the things you do sayit's like puts a bit more weight behind it. People like a all right, he'sthought about that. He must mean it yeah and I feel like that's eitherreally good or just just terrible. If you say absolute dog shit like you, canreally blow it extra hard, if, whatever you say, has more weight on it, yeahyeah you're, putting more chips in yeah. The time goes in then you put puttingall your chips, yeah t spreading, you're going all in no matter what so I just did e thing at your housewhere I knew some people, but there were a lot of people. I didn't reallyknow, and so I was kind of chatting with you know like people I didn't knowwhat to start and then the kind of main dinner thing started and I realized Ihadn't really been saying anything for a while and then the house mote wastalking about like how he likes those those like pimple, pope video thingsthat are like real gross, but people find satisfying, and I remembered thatI'd back while I was in Jarano. I had this like it's called a follicles yeah andit's like a sist. It's like a benign thing. It's not dangerous, but it'sjust this gross kind of thing that bubbles up on your scalp yeah and thathad become really big and inflamed, and it got quite big and Grosse and it wasreally annoying and then a couple weeks...

...ago I burst it and it all the gun cameout and it was really satisfying to get rid of it, and so because they weretalking about like pimple, popping and stuff. I just explained that, and itwas like a cool and then the sort of evening finished- and you know I washeading out and right as I was the door, I realized like fuck. That's the onlything I said that is the only thing I said. The whole dinner is is terrible,there's a whole group of people there who just think I'm this obsessed,asists, that's all like and like that's all that a hundred percent of what Isaid was talking about sists on my body. The thing I'm just riddled and sistsand the other thing is like because that's the only thing I said, I thinkpeople would reasonably assume that's the best thing I had to say, like all my other thoughts were sohorrible and unspeakable that, like that sist anecdote was like my agame that was me really briant. I've got a friend and she's real funny,she's, not a an she's just funny. You know, and she was at the dinner yeah.That's one of the things she said she goes. She goes. I was good to see Jack,you know, even though all he did say was aboutthe benign follicle sist. Well, that's that's why I wrote it because yeah youmentioned that to me- and I just had this moment of like a man. You hopepeople don't notice that stuff. I guess they do. I guess they do kind of hears.How weird I am I just even though she mentioned it to me. I was like Oh yeah,that's funny, yeah an it didn't. It didn't seem weird to me at all. It wasjust like yeah well putting in the conversation and yeah.You know you didn't blow it in any way. No, but I in any way, but I feel likeyou and I have a we- have a track record where I've saidenough stuff. That's like fine, sad enough passable things in conversationthat it's like. Okay, this guy's, not a freak, but if this is the first timewe'd met and I was like yeah, I got a sist on my scalp and then just stony silence for hours. That's goodman, yeah, there's something funny in that. Like a track record yeah, we oldof t. What would you say like a a trust?There's a trust. That's been set up yeah if that that wall isn't that wallis built steadily over time. Yeah. If you just throw a cannon ballstraight into the few bricks that are already set up.It's going to you know not people back a bit. You know yeah. I feel like I'vegot a few like. I feel, like I could say, like a real stupid, no good stuffconsistently for weeks before you cottoned on to the fact that I'd lostmy mind. You know I mean like sure man, yeah yeah, that's yeah,that's it yeah. Maybe that shows also he hang out with you know. Yeah I mean you are in a house for a lot ofcomics and stuff yeah. how I wonder how you would would go just with no comics.Do you reckon reckon that's why you were a bit reserved at the dinner? OhYeah, I'm terrible, because I feel like I'm just used to being able to say the most cooked stuffyou can imagine and then I'm not good at a I'm fine. Actually, really whenit's like. I guess I feel like it's just tough meeting meeting New People.You know I mean it's just. I think you are real greater that have been likereal kind of upbeaten like one to get to know people where I don't know. Ithink it's just a mental thing. Yeah, I am it's cool and I think that's why weget along so well is because my brother is kind of the same as you yeah andyeah he'll he'll sit back, but when he talks everyone listens, yeahs usuallysays something good. You know there are people that you wouldn't take into thatsituation in common that you're, just like I am, there is no way I have takenyou to a dinner party yeah, but because I have this kind of yeah, because mybrothers, the same, I know you're going to be fine yeah, I'm never going tolike freak out and sat screaming, but I feel like I do like I'll noticepatterns with my friends like I people who are like my really really goodfriends, boys they're in some sort of situation in their lives where theyhave to be around me. Quite a lot yeah an you can kind of like get used tothem and get a trust go and, like you know you meet, some people is like. Oh,how did you guys meet in is like Oh, we were browsing around the book shop andstarted chatting or something it's like. I don't have any of those Yanne ofthose like we were wearing the same hat at the train station and been a realwar were an thing like we were yeah together in a prison for six yeah yeah. I came out that way. Yeah I'mthinking of maybe fighting in a war, so I can meetNew People, man, that's a that's a good yeah!That's there's something in that yeah! I is pretty funny that you got a yeah. You've got to be in a hat like a Yeso kind of situation whereyou do have to talk all the time in order to build it, and then you havesome of those which,...

...like when you had that dishwashing jobyeah and you just hated everyone in the whole kitchen yeah. That's so goodbecause me, I probably would have just been likeyeah cool guys and almost tried to fit in with him and go back on my morals,Yeah N E N, no matter how I like just as long as I'm in with the people atwork. It's fine, but you are like no fuck you, you are getting the worstobjector. Is You are right, fucking get it. This is it I come to work. I washthe dishes yeah. I have a pretty pretty like lowlevel to switch to just like shut everything down it was you used to callme one shot, druce on your drew yeah, so many people are gone, they've burntthat one shot. It's me right stories are awesome. I think one short truce is taken a bitof a holiday for a while. Then I think I've gotten better just get older andyou know let's paranoid about myself, but which is a bad son, but also a goodthing. You know Yeah Vera Bit Lenny, but also you know, I don't know I kind of wish. I was oneshot cap, sometimes so yeah I mean. I think this is the funniestthing ever to me was like how I I can't remember exactly what the situation was,but you'd had some kind of change in your life or something and we'rewalking along and talking about it, and I was like how's everything going withthis and you were like Oh yeah man. I might have made a mistake, maybe the worst mistake of my life anyway and then just brushed it up andstarted talking about something else like Jesus Christ. You are the worstmistake you live, but it's not even meant worth like a follow up chat. Like a dream of that, I made the worstmistake of my life. That would be the worst four years of my life. Just whenthat was ruminating about it is that God i broke up with somebody. I thinkno, I think it was somehows he moved into or something okay Leah. I movedinto a terrible house yeah, that's right! Oh yeah, that was fucked. Iremember saying that Yeah Yeah, that's right, yeah yeah, because I didn't haveany options to places move into it and yeah. It was you'd write the worst,the worst mistake of my life, but it was pretty pretty close. I had a lot ofpeople saying: Don't move it with these people. You wrote the worst one ofthose like you know us biographies of artists, and I ear you want there to belike this pain and struggle at the beginning. You want to see what they'veovercome yeah and I feel like you just- did the worst job of writing thatbecause it's like yeah, this shitty thing happened, but it was fine yeah.It was F that yeah, but you know not going to complain about that. I youknow it was a place to stay yeah man I got. I got one thing I want todiscuss with you every now and then you do get a look itnot not to blow my own home, but I think sometimes you do get a good idea and I know we've been trying to write comic strips and stuff like that.Yeah, I haven't been very successful with that. I've got to say you can makethe I like. The comic strips have been goodsausage, prison sausage, prison yeah that was great, but that all came outof like two weeks of yeah of great comic rips, and then it's been a bit ofa dead dead thing since then, but I've got this stand up pace of stand up. That is what I always love. Seeing you that book, it'sjust like it's! You got his paragraphs and paragraphs, but then I'll always belike a man. Who's like was that, like a carrot,man or something y, ah like Tisanes, five pences, yeah, okay, actually I'll talk about thatyeah. What's this this one's about soil, the so this is. This is the way okaypicture, this Jack, you are stand up night. It can get on. So I always find the word soil funny, because soil is do it when you see when you soil, something it becomes dirty, but it can be soiled, but notnecessarily with do it and still be soiled hm. I, for example, let's say if your neighbor stayed uplate. Listening to side trends real loud and you weren't a fan of sidetrends, so you buried them alive. YEA, the Nair clothes would be soiled, but let's say you didn't bury themalive, but you repeatedly stand them and then their clothes would be coveredwith blood. Then their clothes are still soiled. Words are funny, aren'tthey and that's it yeah side trance is...

...soil in the community and I will removethat soul. One person at a time an move along. I don't know if there's anything I canadd to it, but yeah Si transis, soiling ourspirits and our mind yeah, so yeah. You know, I think, I'm going to work onit on stage. I thought that could be a comic strip as well of me, justexplaining that with the pictures yeah like it's one of those like informational, kind of yeah, likethings that pop up online like how to explain her things, yeah yeah, exactlyman, yeah, yeah, so yeah. I thought some something like that. But Yeah Idon't know we verdict recois ready to go. I never know with you. Man, like I real like, if I was doing that I'dsay no, but then I've seen you just pull stuff out of nowhere. So manytimes to people have told me XACA. My my housemate and friend Ben Night saysthat to me all the time so Max Steward as the same in the match to art yeahlike a list of things that to make you angry forget about it, mate thatthey're going to suck and then he kills it so yeah all right. Well, we'll go onto this one. I thought this could maybe like be some kind of Infiata anadvertisement. Some folks have three prongs. Some havefour, but whenever I go to dinner, I take my forkbecause it's a FRI, five prompt, I always take my own fork. Most forks are three or four prongmines. Five, this asserts dominant in every meal when your thried Spaghetti on this baby.Everyone's going to hear your opinion on the political situation in defer,yeah five prongs, it's like having five dogs and then it all zoomin on a man withfive penses and then one of the penses says I ate with a five prong fork everyday, so yea, Oh yeah. I love that great. If you did E stand up, I'd love to seeyou go into like some crazy sort of you know, like self help kind of thingon. You know like a Prong for each pillar of wisdom in mysystem, a like on Prong for community one for strength, the Middle Prong is courage. We always talk about. I think I've got that on few assertingdominance in this any situation or we has to talk about prison, yeah, prisonpower, movies, prison power, moves yeah and I think that's the olive power moveto take a five prong folk to dinner yeah and you show it to everybody, seefor yeah at just get everyone to count the prongson their forks yeah over there, Barbara. Oh three, that's in that's interesting! I go five. I got a for, that's pretty good yeah!So metrical, I guess yeah. If that's what you're like yeah, I got three wehave presided over there. You think you're, the King of the sea. You knowwhere they say: pen, tolden, five d. You think you can summon Satan with atriangle. No PETARA AD, five and I'd say quite ultimate. No Way. No one saysthat man well yeah. So a couple of couple ideas here:Yeah we got a few things we can build on. I reckon how much stuff do you say?Would you write to get the gold? I never know. Sometimes you just getlike fully formed ready to go yeah, sometimes you're right, like ten novelsyeah, you get like a sentence. That's good out of it. I've been trying towrite one a half two hours a day, but then I've been trying to do the whole kind of mathematical thing ofokay. I've got this a four book, Yep, it's nearly finished and I got likemaybe two or three bits out of it. Maybe so, therefore, I've got to do abook a day now to try and get to bid. Today I reckon that'll work out for me. Looka day: You'll Sahin, you could legitimately start a cult. If you did abook a day, he did a book a day and published all of it and you would havelike six people who thought you were a real message and you got those six people for life.That's IT Yeah! So you need. I pore go as long as they give you all yourassets and let you sleep with their partners. I say I could flop they'rewilling to plow. Your field grow your...

...crops. I I started. I didn't mean tostart a cult, a it's trying to do the bit about the at the awkward war flow, not my fault.They made me the new God, a yeah. I just wanted to write a book a day, anBoozle, it's funny, Yeah Yeah, it's ninety six pages of a fourexercise book, so I forrow ninety six pages day, draking anyone's writtenninety six pages day, probably a few people. If you fill it in with drawings ofpeople with five decks, then you get a bit more leeway like those tricks you had in school,whether like it had to be a certain amount of pages, but you make it a likea big type face and put in the pixture of a guy with five dicks and the teachers like yeah this. This study wasmeant to be on Goannas, but I think you win again you're lucky, I'm the world biggestpervert teacher Jack, another a plus. They start telling teachers at Unithey're like watch out for big type faces and pictures of five decks. Thisis an old routine. It's going to fail you up the first few times yea, butyou're going to find it extremely arousing. You got a want to see more soyou'll start rewarding it. That's a vicious cycle. I mean well. If you got anything moreto contribute, may you reckon we should close this fun catch out, O man Ialways got. I got a smaller notebook, that's semi full, but I can we closethis one. I will get into it next Tis, just one off yeah are we closing? Itwas closing it off far out we're closing it off this. This casket isgetting close yeah. The comedy is in the casket and buriedon the week. This is a time capsule that we're shutting down the airsgetting dinner, a closing the lid. You really got to figure out her andthese some point.
