This week's episode isn't really about Australia Day/Invasion Day at all, I spoke about it for a few minutes at the start before I started talking about myself, that's it. I didn't have a pic for this week though, and thought it'd be cool to acknowledge the indigenous peoples of Australia, whose sovereignty was never ceded, by putting the Indigenou…
 
I just spent a long time - maybe too long for what it is - writing a funny description here about how I got a palm spike stuck in my leg. It was in the tone of a legal deposition or whatever, and it ended with "My justice will be done." But then the fucking podcast upload thing fucked up because it's all changed and I lost the description I wrote a…
 
Yesterday I took what is probably the best picture of people taking pictures I've ever taken, there's three people taking pictures in the one picture, and behind them is the majesty of a Sunday evening sunset on St Kilda beach. It was a great day, Calamari Sunday returned, and I got to do a great gig at the legendary Espy, and everything just feels…
 
Diego Maradona died this week, pretty sad, even though I can't really say he was a huge part of my life on any level apart from the fact that I like football. I have a tendency to get pretty emotional over big events like this though, it's a naughty little indulgence really - feels good to get sad about shit.Also if you want to help out Benjy's Kar…
 
I went camping on the weekend, and that part was lovely, but before we went I made sure to stress myself out unnecessarily by trying to jam too many commitments into the day we were supposed to be leaving. Always good form before a holiday to make sure you're strung out to emotional breaking-point so you get good bang for your relaxation buck. That…
 
We did it!! It's happening!! MELBOURNE I LOVE YOU!! Dan Andrews drinking whiskey on a Monday night!! A long weekend for the footy that's being played in Queensland!! Matthew McConaughey on Joe Rogan!! 51 consecutive days of meditation!! Fuck you Covid, we're opening up!! MELBOURNE COMEDY WILL RISE AGAIN!!!!By the way here's the link to those kids p…
 
Creating an image for Backyard Bitch T-Shirts. Torrenting a movie about meditation. Recording video of this podcast. Editing thumbnail images for this podcast. Playing music to relax myself after recording this podcast. These are all situations in which I have become unreasonably angry after attempting to interface with technology. When will it end…
 
Lockdown has been getting to me a little this week. I yelled at a guy in a van outside the cool new bagel joint that just opened in Brunswick. Also I spent all day yesterday thinking I was having a fight with a friend, when actually it was all in my head. Can't wait to shave my stupid facial hair when I finish uploading this episode, what a treat.…
 
I had a great conversation with a friend last week about how I feel personally attacked by feminism, and how insane it is that I feel that way. It was very cool of her to listen to me and let me figuratively punch myself out in my anger. Better to get that shit out in private than accidentally letting loose in some Instagram comments section, hey? …
 
Ever heard of The Trolley Problem? It's a famous thought experiment in moral philosophy that forces us to consider the power of choice by suggesting a situation where we might divert a runaway trolley on train tracks, and in doing so save many lives at the expense of a few. The Trolley Pole Problem is the same thing, but instead of a runaway trolle…
 
I'm slowly getting a clearer idea of what it is that I'm trying to do with this podcast, and I'm really enjoying doing it every week. Thankyou to everyone listening, last week was the best ever week for downloads! This week I told some stories that were really quite sad, which is odd because I've been feeling great, actually. Music: Fortune - Laura…
 
I got The Witcher 3 to work on my Mac last night after trying all weekend to get Windows running and stable enough to make it work, and now all I want to do is play the game. Evidently I want to play it so bad I was able to convince myself that I didn't need to go to TAFE this morning. Good to know the mind is still sharp, even if the spirit is sog…
 
Yesterday I cried, like really cried properly, and it felt amazing! Today I cried again, and it wasn't as good, but it does feel like I've unlocked some kind of power, which is crazy when you realise that all I'm actually talking about is actively feeling an emotion. Feels like progress to me, mate! Also, earlier I got something out that had been s…
 
They say you always become the thing you hate the most, and yesterday I became a TAFE student. I feel lost without the identity-crutch of being a Comedian, but that feeling is probably good, right? Like, growth, hardship, struggle, all of that bullshit. I also watched a documentary on Edmund Hillary and Tenzig Norgay last week, which was sick! Musi…
 
Today I am feeling the best I've felt in weeks, maybe months, and I'm not even really sure why. I saw a kid climbing a tree in the park on Thursday. He was trying to get his Mum to pay attention to him, and he reminded me of myself, which is absolutely something that a self-obsessed person would think when they see someone enjoying their childhood.…
 
I went to therapy yesterday and came away with a sheet of Unhelpful Thinking Styles that I'm supposed to remember so I can notice when I'm exhibiting one of them. I'm really happy with it, and it definitely feels like a step in the right direction, but also sometimes I feel like the reason I'm sad is less about the things that I'm telling myself, a…
 
I've realised I don't think I have ever said the phrase, "Thanks for asking" to anyone, because I never wait for someone to ask how I'm doing, I just fire away with my bullshit. In a way, you listening to this podcast is basically you asking me how I'm doing, or at least, if you know what the podcast is, then yeah. If you don't know what this podca…
 
Isn't it wild how some artists can latch on to certain feelings or recurring moments in life in such a way that whenever you find yourself back in that familiar place, you think of them and their work? It's such a bummer to admit that Ed Sheeran has done that with me. Anyway, that's a cool thought I had at the start of the podcast this week. The re…
 
Last week a friend messaged me after listening to the podcast and took me to task about what I said on the topic of the Black Lives Matter protest, he was right in doing so. I read the message out, answered as best I could, and talked a little more about the day I had at the protest, and the week I've had since. Pretty intense one this week - at le…
 
Last week sucked, me and the lady I've been seeing for the last few months finally ended things, also I was looking for a new person to move in to the other room in my place, and then there was the high tension of the BLM protest on Saturday. Lots to learn, lots to feel, all very important, but very difficult for me, and that's what this podcast is…
 
Last night we had a gig in the shed at my house in East Brunswick to mark the first easing of social distancing restrictions in Victoria. Were allowed to have 20 people in residences, so that's what we did! The gig was great, and I feel confident in what I need to do over the next few months. HI FIVE!! Music: Chemicals - SG Lewis…
 
Last night the girl I've been seeing and I walked around the park for five hours talking about whether we were going to keep seeing each other. I've never been more honest and open with someone in my life, it was exhilirating, scary, tiring and ultimately, cathartic. If I've achieved nothing else in these last few months of isolation, at least I ca…
 
After talking last week about the girl I've been seeing and my evolving thoughts on seeing other people at the same time, someone wrote me with a bunch of advice and thoughts based on their experience, so I went through that. Also admitted to watching a full Emma Chamberlain video on YouTube, which was pretty brutal. Music: Not That Special - Lily …
 
I think I'm a much angrier person than I realise, usually it's only at myself which is probably why I never give it the credit it deserves. Anyway, on Friday night I had a great time uncovering that with a mate who is also angry in a similar way. One week without my beloved Google Pixel 3 down, three to go. Music: Core 'N Grato (The Ungrateful Hear…
 
I started out today angry because of some shit with the lease of the place we used to live in two years ago that still hasn't been resolved. Then I was excited about learning how to use YouTube and promote the gardening videos I've been making. Then I told a sad story that isn't really that sad at all, more just funny. Good time today! Music: When …
 
My mic cable fell out three times during this ep and it really upset me, but I'm in a good mood so I ended up laughing pretty quickly after each time. I am very well aware that something like that in the description of a podcast is probably enough to make people not want to listen to it, but I figured it'd be better to let you know what you're in f…
 
I did acid on Saturday night with some friends and realised how lucky and thankful I am to be able to share those kinds of experiences with people I love. That in turn made me accept that I need to start taking social distancing more seriously. Conveniently, the next day the Victorian State Government made gatherings of more than two people illegal…
 
Okay so I don't have Coronavirus, and I'm not technically in quarantine, but I do have a cold and I am staying at home and man it feels like the start of a long, long few months doesn't it!? This may be one of the best episodes I've done I reckon, it has that feel I like where I start off sad and manage to end up laughing. Sorry about the sniffles,…
