Wayne:

Yeah, hello everyone and welcome to this episode of a midlife less ordinary. My name is Wayne and Trevor do dailies safe to say hello. How you doing?

Trev:

Hello?

Wayne:

Is anybody want to say hello?

Trev:

Literally by taking your directions?

Wayne:

We're just going to be twice as long for this episode then, isn't it? Sorry, people. Are you doing? You're right.

Trev:

Yeah, yeah. Yes. been, you know, now the week? Yeah, another

Wayne:

week for episode, you know, for free in the grand scheme. I'll say that every week kind of grand scheme of thing. grand scheme.

Trev:

You're not a grand scheme. I

Wayne:

have no grand old he called what would you call a grand scheme? Nothing really. schemes? Yeah. I don't think I don't think

Trev:

I'll be used, isn't it that really yeah. grand scheme of things

Wayne:

so many cliches in a British language. I think. I'll go along with that. We use turning we're talking cliches, not some of, you know, probably procrastinated. I've got that word, right, because usually I'll get

Trev:

adulterated again.

Wayne:

Don't start that way.

Trev:

The thing is, is this like, everything seems sort of more drama, doesn't it? Yes. Yeah. The schema thing is a big thing. But it's not really it's just what's happened really, isn't it? Is that

Wayne:

right? It's like you're trying to make the biggest point ever, like in the grand scheme of things. This is a way Yeah, it's not. It's not a great cliche

Trev:

thing. Do you think that's why soap operas are so popular? Because people like

Wayne:

drama? No, I think he's that's escapism.

Trev:

I think we're nosy. Yeah.

Wayne:

I think it's cosiness. It's hard to explain because you don't like you don't watch them kind of things. But I've been taken with him not because I want to know what Emily bishops bashing this way or anything like that. But it but I do kind of I kind of see it because you get kind of lost in it. But the thing is, it becomes addictive and then you got to catch the next one. But I can actually go six months and it's only Coronation Street I'd ever get into not the other one. But you know, I can go go six months ago. I can turn it on again and you just pick it up. where you left off

Trev:

is my mom headlock. Have we a weird tradition? Because she she actually she shared with anyone she could do was Coronation Street. Yeah. And it was like this weird thing where she got a mug of tea. A pack of chairs out? No idea. No. It was his chair for ages. And to be honest, getting chairs I've had in the last couple of years and the small ones no one eats the big chairs.

Wayne:

I do I'm a big fan of cheddar all round you know the cheddar the place cheddar cheese cheddar mini cheddars. I just love it. You know, my life is cheddar. I mean even the cheese. Yeah, I know. I knew that was

Trev:

what you mean? Well, just cheese in general.

Wayne:

I don't say we go chocolate then it's bloomin cheddar cheese. That'll be my choice. We do cheese. Yeah. This episode or you want to do I know we're doing another episode if you don't mind because I wasn't prepared for that. I'm the one who gets prepared. You're the one who drops your your comments in cold my vocal vocal because you can do that kind of thing. Well, I didn't want to extol the virtues of Eazy E bikes. Now. I've told you a little bit about Yes, I know. It's a bit rowdy. Yeah,

Trev:

I have Yeah, but now you've like you've got whatever. Yeah, yes.

Wayne:

And I'll just quickly extol the virtues of it being a man of a certain age and midlife funny enough. That's what the podcast is called. You know, I struggle with cycling. You know, when you got a family and they want to go out cycling. I is going to try and keep up

Trev:

to you like a Haven's advert.

Wayne:

Go on, though. You say that you're you're imagining like there's all cycling with you.

Trev:

You know, and you get the dad at the front of his legs. Are you really looking like he's really been dangerous for his eyes? do you do that?

Wayne:

Yeah, no, no, you look at it on the front and the chopper. sounds wrong.

Trev:

But But on top of Eliot's chopper

Wayne:

this, this, this this, this part of the show wasn't turning out the way he intended, but then that's a mid life less ordinary for you. But yeah, just to just want to quickly I struggle with it by so there's a 10 year old in our household, get on a bike, they just go like Duracell. But yeah, I know. And I struggle with appeals and things. I'm not particularly I'm getting a bit larger than I struggle

Trev:

out on why would you want a bit? Well, you

Wayne:

don't know you don't come cycling with me. So don't try and like a cycle with you ever. You've never cycled with me. I just buy your cycles. That's all that happens. Exactly. You know, yeah, but that is that is what happened. We went to centre parks this year because obviously we all holidaying at home. staycations as they call them. We went to St. Paul staycations. staycations. Yeah, that was a different one.

Trev:

Stay gay nation.

Wayne:

Yeah, it was. Yeah, that was a good one. But I'm not talking about that. That's better. It's how you use it said I went to havens. I went to centre parks. I this this isn't working out. But yeah, we got and we went there and I had a normal bike because we didn't want take by too much hassle. So we got I got I was riding up hills after about 10 minutes as I was like, yeah, it's like that. And we've done that. We've talked about bikes on the show with Cole, friend of the show, you know, in very interesting to

Trev:

do. Yes. If you did leg day, you'd be

Wayne:

undo. Yeah, that was the next one coming. It's nothing to do with it. It's just the path. Not not smoking. I mean, inside me away we go. But yeah, yeah, the magic dragon. But it's but basically what I said, I can't do this. I'm sorry. I'm going to stay back in the cabin and watch watch Coronation Street while you go out cycling. But they had an E bike and I said I was to have a go. I didn't even know Do you know anything about job? What do you say? said?

Trev:

What do you think? I've never actually seen one? I don't think unless frommers passed me in Australia. It

Wayne:

probably Yeah, yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Like a motorbike. There's quiet. But you know, I've got motorbike is it's not like that. Anyway, I got an E bike, and given the extra money, and I said, Oh, there you go. But basically, you make a bit of effort, and it helps you. So it's a bit it's a bit like an introduction into being.

Trev:

What was it you started? Well, I know you've explained yourself there because you said you had a governed normal bike, found it hard. Yes. And then full? Because I was wondering how you thought it would be a good idea to get one. But you've actually you experienced the pain. Now. This

Wayne:

is the experience. Yeah, though. I had to make me but what everybody wants to pay higher, then. Yeah, yeah. And then all of a sudden, I had to see but basically, you have to work. It's not like a throttle that you pull back you basically pedalling and up to 15 miles an hour, it will assist you and you've got four different levels of assist. When I first got it, I was like Mary Poppins, it was ridiculous I did in the top mode. And it was like floating, and it was ridiculous, because I'm not doing hardly anything, but you are pedalling, but it's not been in gear one all the time, but you're actually going somewhere. But once you get used to like how much you need just to get out that he was saying you do exercise that you can switch it then yeah, you can get you can have like economy bah blah, blah, gets higher and higher. Okay, switch it to heart. Even the journey. Yeah, yeah, you just gotta run on the fingers digital display, and you just go, yeah, economy then it's like hill climbing or whatever, or mountain biking, whatever trail riding Turin, but to be honest, only use the bastard. Economies as basic ones. So you're still working? Yeah, it's just enough. When you go up a hill, it just assists you pushes you to school without catching a ghost gently pushing behind you to get you out there. All of a sudden, it's changed my life. Because I could keep up with them all. And when you're going to be returning to the second one up, and you know.

Trev:

And do you feel like the bionic man, he's like

Wayne:

that, honestly. Definitely. Brilliant. When I got back, I was so excited. I was like, straight away within within our half an hour. I bought one. But the thing is, like a lot of things, they've gone up in value a lot. And I bought a second one. And it was still 1000 1300. Wait. Yeah, and I've got knocked him down. And it was because they're saying it's worth every penny. And I've now got roof bars on my car, we go cycling everywhere. I absolutely love it. It's changed my life. So if anyone you know, struggling stop killer. They are Yeah, they're really taking off. And I can see why. You know, it changes I can see that being the future of our country is gonna go our generation, maybe not so young people. Now I think people still more into the traditional, but I think that a lot of the the middle age and upwards people it would just because of that extra bit of assistance you need. So you're going somewhere with this. I can tell

Trev:

a lie, the cyclers chairlift,

Wayne:

I said no, because in the day it's getting me outside sniffing in the leaded fumes or wherever it is on the road. Yeah, I'm doing trials. I don't like riding on the road. But you know, it's changed the way I think about it. I see Cycling is like being a kid again. That's what it feels like to me. Yeah, no jokes to one side is a real good way to get around that you can do sort of I've done 25 miles, which, you know, isn't a lot. I know a lot of people that cycle a lot. But for me, that's amazing. Yeah. And you know, you stopped at the pub, you know, it's a bit gnarly. Are they? Yes, small ones. No, it's a good boy. It's a German brand. It's a proper trail. mountain bike, it looks good. It's got the suntour suspension on the seat and it's great, you know, for my big fat ass. It's,

Trev:

well, I think called the wobbler

Wayne:

should be the winner. But that's sorry, I just wanted people to know that. You know that cycling was something that we can do as a family. Are

Trev:

you trying to get a free one?

Wayne:

I don't know which I shouldn't really for air to pie breed. I like the cube one that's a very decent bike well done yeah

Trev:

q by q by q might keep my god the bikes and they yeah they do yeah very good bikes kids barely aware of them when I was in the money but I must be fairly new.

Wayne:

Yeah, they are as a few brands that popped up that didn't exist before but they but they they are that they are the future. And I think what we've already superhighway bike paths being built, I think that they've got their place. I just, you know, just saying, you know, you've given up with the site by even you, you don't need it for the fitness side of it. I'm not saying you can run. But you know, it's a dance we've seen, but it's

Trev:

this thing about my many talents. Yeah, he's running. So you don't need to run after our dance because dance for someone else's misses are saying

Wayne:

it is. But it's great. You know, these these things are trying this is where technology comes in and can change your life again and get you out and about saying you'd never thought you'd enjoy again. So that's a serious quote from me about you know, the value of E bikes. And I thought proud

Trev:

of you coming out with that. Yeah, yeah, thanks, dad.

Wayne:

So I think now Trev I think he's hired for that part of the week when we do the roundup of the week and it's the I am ello weekly Why? So Trey before we start this week, just want to put the jokes to one side for a second because something quite serious has happened this week. You're aware of it I'm sure but there's been a tragedy that one of our listeners lives in a village in Derbyshire

Trev:

yeah don't listen to she she's she lives in killer marshy killer Marsh

Wayne:

into darbyshire Yes. We're not sure the facts yet. And but there's been four people basically pass passed on we're not sure all the facts at the moment but basically murdered and it involves free children and when a mother isn't it and we just like to reach out and say we were four condolences

Trev:

with them yeah with the families is terrible. That's just tragic. These

Wayne:

these kind of events transcend. You know, everything out there. And you just Yeah, for the families.

Trev:

Especially when you know someone that lives in the town in the village. Yeah. friends from Ross for being friends with Vaseline skull. Yeah. and stuff. So yeah, that's all

Wayne:

I've also with you all, and in a good range of souls. So Trev I know you, you don't really read the news. So the first thing I noticed this week on the news was, after probably 15 years of some kind of review, they've decided that Russia might as well Russia is responsible for the killing of Alexander Litvinenko. They could poison a Colombian even if I was gonna mention Kabbalah coughed in New York.

Trev:

Word with Eugene about,

Wayne:

sorry, the former Russian spy who became a British citizen who was fatally poisoned with radioactive polonium 210 in London in 2006, and a

Trev:

Moodle. Partner Why is it taking

Wayne:

them that long? To say that they think that they basically say Russia was responsible when everyone else knew that day? Basically, he was a KGB agent and then transferred to the not transferred it says he said, like his Sky Sports soccer.

Trev:

He wears a yellow tie to cover costs.

Wayne:

Yeah, Jeff Stelling was like, Oh, we got big news.

Trev:

Just got digital text

Wayne:

here. Yeah, yeah. You know, they've just decided that so it's taking 15 years and millions of pounds to come up with that, you know, I could have told them the next day. Yeah,

Trev:

the reason that they've done that now, you know, when you do something wrong when you're a kid. Yes. And you cash it out, but I didn't do it. I didn't do it. And then when all it all dies down and really doesn't matter anymore, you go. Remember that vase mom? hopper. Okay. Yeah, same thing. Yeah, exactly. Oh, no, no one cares about it anymore. Or no, Gambia passed away. So I will Oh, yeah, we did that. Oh, so. Yeah, no big deal anymore.

Wayne:

There's no need to worry about 2018 was in Salisbury when the other the other person got poisoned do is another agent. Ex KGB, you know it was it Russia. nice surprise.

Unknown:

He's quite freaky. I

Wayne:

think these people are actually mingling with us. Yeah, I don't like Apparently, he had tea with two Russian agents in like the Savoy or something. Autodesk just made up that

Trev:

was really gone downhill for Westham and but they poison the tea.

Wayne:

Yeah, exactly. Yeah.

Trev:

Yeah. Gene Hackman, just a style.

Wayne:

I'm not being funny. The Russians Don't even try and hide the fact that they it's them this, you know, the KGB. I don't care that they deny it politically. But they, if they want you to kill it, they could do it another way they could do it secretly, but they don't.

Trev:

I don't really understand why they have like, a cabinet or press office. Because then they all kind of it must be the easiest job in the world. They get blamed for something. And then they're all like, deny. Okay, yeah. Deny. So no one there's a conversation. What do you reckon then Eugene, what do you reckon Ivan? just deny it? Yeah. And again, we

Wayne:

are interviewing, isn't it? They just said the same old muted responses. You eat anything to do with politics. He never get any real true. Yes. Just a load of old Cabela's.

Trev:

First thing Yeah, football aside, and we're now they put the sponsorship bald up behind. Yes. So you got no fans sticking their fingers up and giving it the one finger salute, which used to be great. Didn't need to remember them days of transfer deadline day. Live to the ground. They don't read. The Northridge Bob was great, because these two blokes said it out. You know, I'm gonna say that. Yeah, yeah, these two blokes set it up and Carrow Road, and one of them grabbed hold of the gates and bent over and the other one looked like he was bobbing in life and see if it was just good. I just think that's glorious. Glorious. This poor woman was trying to like talk about transfers. And this bloke was just like, Kate slack is amazing. Anyway, that's by humour.

Wayne:

No, no. I didn't actually you brought up football. I'll just want to say critics don't want you to bring him up again. Ronaldo is doing okay. Yeah. Let's go for now.

Trev:

They say football is a sore subject for me this week. So sorry, my shower would get done by Chelsea already did. And I did a height that I prove you right

Unknown:

surprised Yeah, I

Trev:

know. Yeah. You want to then yeah, you kind of check in he might be different this time. And it's just the same formula thumped. You know, great, because

Wayne:

it's only up from their trip. But but Oh, yeah. But what I want you to ask you and it's in the news this week is Yeah. Oh. Did you see I don't know if you saw a man united against Westham Rinaldo who yes is probably been guilty of choking himself over a few times. No, no, he just very fast. But he, he got hacked down twice, which probably could be construed as a penalty. And they didn't even kind of they just waved it on. And I'm just asking you basically mutation. Yeah, but if they got var that's what var is supposed to do. Forget the reputation it's meant to sort of, basically so and if he's chucking himself to the ground in bookie, Masami but basically I said it's not a fail and not being funny. One of them the bloke sort of chucked both legs in front of him. I disarmer over his name, isn't it?

Trev:

Yeah, I don't. The var thing I don't. I was all for it. And now I'm not. Because it slows down football. These continuous decisions. They terrible when they go against you to anything, really. But they give us a talk about Yes. Yeah. In the pub after football and stuff. Yeah. Now, the the injustice of it. As much as it hurts when it happens to your team. the injustice of it is all part of football to me. Yes. They do go for you as well. And you feel great when they go for you and bear when they don't. So that's all part of supporting a football team. The only thing I do agree with is goal line technology.

Wayne:

Yeah, that is good. It has been called the amount that that yeah, that picks up. I mean, that's Goldline. is slightly different. But yeah, and we've had it for a while, haven't we, but it's it has really tried. Yeah, the contentious one for me.

Trev:

Yeah, the worst one for me when I was a kid. It might have been nice sauce. 7879. If anybody listens to us, that's a Crystal Palace fan. can tell us but I remember a guy called Vince Hilaire. real talent. Anyway. Yeah. He was he was great. And he was one of the employees that you think should play for England and then never did. And I. Anyway, he hit this free kick for about 40 yards out and it smashed into the back of the net. And you remember the old goals. You have stanchions which we've got a little triangle bit where the net foot hit the back of the stanchion and come back out so fast. And I think it was Clive Thomas remember Clive chess? The referee, which I think Didn't he he blew up when our Argentina or Brazil was scored in the last minute as the ball from anywhere. That's another story. Anyway, hit the stanchion so hard it ricocheted out and they didn't give the goal and they said like hit the ball you can see just flew in the net and bounced back out when you hit the stage and so on. And that is not one of the biggest things that I'll remember is that don't get that now which is good now

Wayne:

it's right there's some technology is it's two sides of the coin isn't there? You know the winners and losers it's been a bull's eye. But you know it is what it is talking point a football is what we all talk about the pub if we ever went but

Trev:

what would they remember the night in 66 World Cup final for above England winning if that balls over the line? Yeah, exactly. If you had if you had golden technology he would be talking about it would Yeah, it happened. But now you can always argue about it. Sure you don't know.

Wayne:

It. Last thing I just wanted to mention quickly drove us that US have really relaxed the travel restrictions to British pair and Europe. Basically if you've had the Oxford AstraZeneca jab is like having top Trumps now you can now travel around the world The World Health Organisation have basically given you clearance so you can go

Trev:

so that does that mean we can go to Christopher shines Country and Western festival

Wayne:

well this is it yes it does mean that if you had AstraZeneca because it is like Trump's now it's like a cynic and it Trump's your visor. Real and then that Trump say you know

Trev:

he I don't he you know this? I don't I don't even know I've got it in my in my phone.

Wayne:

You don't know what you got flying around your veins? No. I do cold hard.

Trev:

I'm surprised they could actually get the injection in Yeah. It's so so beloved. By bloody so black, black heart, pumping it round number evil body. I was like yeah, I don't know what I have to check the card. You carry the card around.

Wayne:

The thing is now I'm supposed to be ready to go to Las Vegas this year for for my fisheries. Erica, you've had AstraZeneca so you're good to go. So you might be coming to Las Vegas with me now because because in our household, I have had the jam so I can go to because it's now been postponed to next year. So I can go but the other person in my house has meant to go cannot go because

Trev:

that's great. It sounds like it's gonna be the hangover.

Wayne:

Exactly. Exactly. The Hangover Part Four. Here we go.

Trev:

Can I have Jenny What if we're going to do that Mike Tyson?

Wayne:

Tiger. Yeah. I'll walk me I'm monkey. You can spank that all night. Maybe you can have gear? I'll go. Yeah,

Trev:

I'll know what I'm monkey. I've always been in one of the little monkeys with a face on. Yes. Yeah. So we could get drunk together. That being the Simpsons I love. We're nice. So basically,

Wayne:

you're gonna go with me now all you want is a monkey with a face and that makes you happy. You're basically saying the monkey was the face is equivalent to me.

Trev:

Great. It's not the wonder of Aladdin. Or what your monkey do all the water actually. No, Candace was that I don't want to want to have Aladdin. I want the one of Indiana Jones.

Wayne:

Yes, he did. Yeah. But at least then I can come back to it that night or that day early. Yeah. Exactly.

Trev:

Salute study in that one. Yes, it gives the Hitler salute free here it is a little monkey doing that, you know, that Nazi monkey

Wayne:

wouldn't would you know, we can arrange that for you. I think that's that's the world that basically I take on the news this week. drif and I think we've time moving on I think we should do our recommendations for the for the TV this week with our IML stream of the week sitrep this is just start recommending what's any anything that's on the streamy stations and people can maybe watch or recommend what they shouldn't be watching basically, but again, I've got a bit old school I've looked on Netflix this week. Because that's the only one I paid the subscription on. And I know and I spent all that money on eBay Yeah, exactly. When you buy v bikes you can't afford all these streaming services not only one go I do one one a month I sign up for Netflix and it's Disney the next month then is prime and then I come back around again so you know I always miss certain

Trev:

seasons was always like changing their phone tariff to save to play Oh yeah. Yeah, you like

Wayne:

to do you know do but then look after the pennies and the pounds will look after themselves as they used to say, but yeah, by my recommend Well, my first recommendation this week drove is an old school one. It's man on fire with Denzel my fate one of my favourite actors. Let me Scott moving now caught yesterday's Tony. Got again. Yeah, big fan and Sony scope and it plays an X. Sorry an ex CIA ex CIA officer a bit of an alcoholic I can kind of associate myself with that although I'm not an alcoholic or alcoholic anything is very good air they might tell you something about him and but he gives close protection to a client stole a dozen a year and she says she gets kidnapped and basically he goes on like a like a revenge kind of trying to find her obviously, you can find in your very young Dakota Fanning. Very good film all about it. I'm a big sucker for revenge and all that kind of thing. Yeah. And he's quite violent. Denzel Cole. Like he always is. Yeah, if you haven't seen that already. Go. Oh, my God. Put it on your list for the weekend. Yeah.

Trev:

I watched that again a couple of months ago, and wasn't impressed with it as much as I wanted. Here we go.

Wayne:

It's like another matrix. Yeah, just not as crisp because you know what's going to happen? Trev you know, the Indians got

Trev:

a lot of typical Tony Scott burger like he stuff a lot of quick cuts in it, though. Isn't there? Like Top Gun? Yeah, already. It's that quick. Make me feel a bit uncomfortable.

Wayne:

Okay, so what you like to be contentious? You've got your contention. So what are you telling people to watch it?

Trev:

Again, strange enough to that I've actually enjoyed this week. So I'm not gonna have one good one on one Bay like I normally do black and white, you know, a bit of

Wayne:

Michael Jackson glass.

Trev:

All right, Mitchell, girl. She's the machine the Mitchells versus the machines. Okay, what's the animation? Very good. Danny McBride involved who just loved the lone wolf. Very funny man. dysfunctional family kind of survive like a robot apocalypse. It I think it was produced or directed. Or the guy that did the Spider Man universe into the spider universe. I enjoyed that as well. But the animation style, he they had something to do with it. It looks great. What I like about it is in embraces some forms of social media? Yes. Which is really unusual. It's difficult to describe, but you have to watch it to get it. It does go a bit pone near the end, like a lot of animations. Do they run out of ideas? So it feels like you're playing? You're watching? Like, you might play the end level boss video game, but he's taken on the big evil empire. Carter, what is it? Good. That's on Netflix. I'm a bit of a sucker for anything. Robots. It reminded me the robots that come down are supposed to be really great for society and help them out. But iRobot Will Smith, which is quite good film similar to that but with humour and Danny McBride, so you can't really go wrong with that. That's one. Yeah, this

Wayne:

was one foot this way. My second one being really obvious this way goes sort of in travel came before but I'm just going through films that I think people will enjoy watching in a weekend. Yeah. So my second one is the movie again, going back a few years in time with Justin Timberlake and Amanda Seyfried in science fiction. It's a solid six out of 10 for somebody like six days. That's not

Trev:

you know, I don't think I've watched all of it is that he's got the Digi Johnny's arm. Yeah,

Wayne:

in a future where people stop ageing after 25 after the age of 25. Basically, you need to buy time you don't have money in that day. You basically trade for time to live. So you know you're living on borrowed

Trev:

time on the way home from the from the pub, and you do well. How would you park your bed on the way home from the pub?

Wayne:

Baraka, Bab? I suppose you give them time for it. So he goes, how much is a chicken kebab and you say 10 minutes, so you give him 10 minutes? A wrist? Yeah. You're trying to lock it. You said you just talked about animating robots. So don't stop me. You said

Trev:

that. Well, I'll give you 10 minutes off my wrist.

Wayne:

To be honest, I'd be quite happy to give him 10 minutes off my wrist. But is it is you know it's a good it's a fun film not overthinking. I'm not I'm not looking for shakes. If you want it's crap. It's not crap. It's a six out of 10 but if it's a Saturday night you're looking st we've actually yeah, I think he's a great actor. I think he's pretty now for dog is good and it's good in all them rooms is a shot. And he was good in in sync was it or whatever they called. You know, especially that backstreet? backstreet? This one wasn't it? I don't know whichever one it was. But yeah, he was it was good in all that said, Well,

Trev:

no, I will agree to disagree. Awful it was crap.

Wayne:

Yeah, but I'm not saying it's brilliant. I said the six out of 10 it's like, I'm putting that in

Trev:

your favour and film ever. I think you found your your thing.

Wayne:

Trev:

Shot Caller Ah, now we're talking that so here we go. You're talking 60s. I'm talking Lights now it's a very good film. Prison drama kind of thing, but with a different reminded me of American History X. Yes, but we've read next. Yes. Yeah. Yeah. Obviously, some great handlebar moustache is being worn in it. Thank

Wayne:

you. Yeah,

Trev:

I'm really So Amanda is really she's

Wayne:

my boy he's got some really great

Trev:

drawing on gang lentos Yes, there's a lot of lot of men walking about with baggy prison trousers on their shirts. I think got the top button up. Kind of

Wayne:

mixture of likes basically half dressed men with their trousers around your ankles.

Trev:

Yeah, that's what does it for

Wayne:

me. I tend that's why I say I tend to stray away

Trev:

more seriously. It's a really really good feel. He's a really good. Really. Yeah, he's Yeah, the dude out of Game of Thrones is in it in a really good film. they've read they made a book of Jo nesbo. Is it headhunters? That's really good if you get a chance to see that. There's a really good bit of an outside toilet in that movie, which was quite good. But yeah, this this shot callers Yes. Got that America really good. If you're not prison dramas, and he's quite gruesome, actually. quite nasty. Yeah. There's a lot of shivers in it.

Wayne:

Yeah. Yeah. That's not rude. Either way. Yeah. That's not what you think he's in the shower that Yeah,

Trev:

exactly. Yeah. Yeah.

Wayne:

Yeah. No, there's no I don't

Trev:

know, Billy. Billy. Remember that?

Wayne:

Yeah. I'm the daddy now. Yeah, yeah. Oh, right. Yeah, that's the streaming the week is the only role he's ever done. But yeah, that's the that's the stream of the week as recommendations or non recommendations in my case, even though I was recommending it, but try to put that down for me. But I think that moves straight into our new segment. trif, which is one that I always giggle when I say and that Sarah dicker the week,

Trev:

nice

Wayne:

pic of the week. So Trev and myself had a bit of fun with this one we thought we'd go a bit cultural again like when we go into our art shows and things like that. And we thought that travellers do a bit history this teach our audience something about somebody from the past and all our history. I feel like I know a bit about history. Yeah, yeah, I mean, really funny. We've lived long enough now where our basically our whole life history. Yeah, it's but we thought we'd go Richard the Lionheart, you know, as he was, well, what a success this is, and we we've already recorded this. And to be honest, I was embarrassed to actually put it out there gonna use it. Well, we know. But we listened back and I kind of went, do you know what? It's crap because it's obvious. We don't know anything about Richard the Lionheart. But it's kind of entertaining in a kind of chain. Yeah. So we're gonna keep it in. So yeah. Are you ready for this trip? Yeah, God, we're gonna have a go sticker the week this week is Richard the Lionheart? So this week's dekha the week we thought we'd go a bit historical and it's basically put us out of our comfort zone because we can't because it's not movies. Basically. We're very much in our comfort zone. Although there has been a Richard the Lionheart movie. We can't just reference that because it wouldn't be realistic really. But Richard the Lionheart, a well famous British icon born in September 11 57, and they say that despite being born in England, he may not have spoken actual English. It's a bit like the introvert. I suppose. Yeah,

Trev:

he was he took what would you told me in not Cockney?

Wayne:

I don't think it's Cockney not English. I don't know is it kakani

Trev:

sound it does it sometimes.

Wayne:

I know. To be fair, we will ask What's his name? Oh my God. He was all for Ray Winstone in Black Widow. Oh, yeah. I was terrible.

Trev:

To be honest, there must have been a decent Russian actor they could have got Yeah, Brian culture is better in red. Yeah. Yeah.

Wayne:

Anyway, what Yeah, sorry Richard the Lionheart is remembered most for being a chivalrous mediaeval King for battling Saladin during the Crusades. And I love all that era. I don't know enough about the crusade.

Trev:

Is that like the salad bar and pizza? You

Wayne:

know, it's like everyone tries to avoid it normally is to I'm trying to get the pizza but in this instance, he Odense Yeah. He fought for it and 1157 or whatever it was, it was only 599 in them days. It's probably about 35 quid.

Trev:

So he was fine. It was fine for a ride. Have a salad in

Wayne:

a salad in Pizza Hut. Richard was Jesse's offer is a bit like you know what you hear about some of the other cultures Richard was born. drugged, drove to a nine year old princess Elyse good work big Richard was was unwilling though it was he didn't get married to the nine year old as a good thing Richard was unwilling to get married and produce an air when Richard succeeded his father to the throne at the age of 31. In the end in 1189, he had an obligation to father an Air and Air. Wish you could find some hair for me, I can put it on my head, but who needs it? Who needs a hair clinic for 5999? Yeah, I can have you

Trev:

out of work out of the fibres you can sell. We know nothing

Wayne:

about this because we're just talking Absolutely. Yeah, it's not it's not exactly. I was gonna say bargain hunt. I wasn't thinking about what's the one when they dig things out. It mostly

Trev:

time. Yeah. And the only thing I can think of for Dickie Lionheart would be like his breastplate being like we're lying on it. You know the old yes in

Wayne:

reliance on your chest. Yeah, Joe's remains. We haven't got George

Trev:

on that now because it's not this and Jojo would have thought they'd probably like some Richard the Lionheart costume is going out there but people don't realise they probably are. No, yeah, I know. virtually nothing about Richard the Lionheart apart from Sean Connery play in in the end of Robin Hood.

Wayne:

Ah, that's true. And those because they say Richard met the legendary outlaw Robin Hood. I didn't even know he was real. I mean, Kevin Costner killed that for me when he was an American speaking twing Yeah, Robin of Sherwood coming up through drain pipes. Yeah, so I like Kevin Costner. I've got no problem with it. Yeah, yeah, he's done much better in his movies. To be honest,

Trev:

I still quite like a little bit.

Wayne:

The only good thing about Alan Rickman is called in it is very true. It's very sad. You just like, Is it because I know you used to play that Bryan Adams song every single day thing I see. You know, he just went to karaoke. You can't help yourself, right? It's sad. So that's all we know about Decker the week it was Richard the Lionheart? I'm sorry, we've mocked you.

Trev:

someone knows a lot about Yeah,

Wayne:

tell us because we've got no chance of taking any information about Richard the lineup. So this week's tip of the week was a total waste of time. Sorry for if we've offended anyone. And we'll save it for next week. So sorry about that everyone, is what it is. We thought we'd leave it in any way. And mainly the other reason we thought we'd leave it in is because I took time out to write some questions down that I could ask Trev afterwards, and I didn't want to have to restart it again.

Trev:

I hope I don't sound stupid. When I answer these questions. I did what I did that sounded like an absolute dog.

Wayne:

thing is we really done it thinking that this will sound really cultural and historical and kind of sound

Trev:

intelligent, it sound intelligent, interesting. We love the way or we're out of our comfort zone. Because we can't really talk about movies. That's what I did.

Wayne:

is true is choice. We're in their comfort zone, you can tell straight away we go straight into our comfort zone. And we've talked about coming out that we did at least we tried, like we said we did in that in that episode, we come out of our comfort zone. It wasn't a good effort, but we try and fall right back into it and we fell right back into our comfort zone. But I've got a few questions here. Trev just got it you know. So first one, Richard was known by the cognomen the Lionheart he had also had other cognomen also based upon a characteristic What was it? Richard the colonel Richard yea or nay? Richard the greedy or Richard of Oxford? I know that didn't make sense but just humour me. Oxford Well, I'm sorry to say it was Richard yea or nay Richard got the nickname yea or nay Ani due to the rapidity with which he made decisions, which is not like last year. Yeah. Great. Thanks. So yeah, we're learning about Richard now.

Trev:

You can call me Trev. Maybe? Exactly. Definitely.

Wayne:

When Richard went on Crusade, whom did he nominate? As he's a guy that word again as he's air in case something happened to him while away? Was it alpha of Brittany? JOHN count of mortain Jeffery of Brittany Jeffrey. Thank you very much.

Unknown:

Nothing else could have been in the room waiting.

Wayne:

GP Jeffrey of your great offer. Richard went on crusade whom did he nominate as he's there in case something happened to him while away Arthur of Brittany. JOHN count of mortain Jeffrey of Brittany or Jeffrey of yoke of Brittany joke. Which one

Trev:

is Gabi one Jeffries

Wayne:

is a Jeffrey as it is. Let me just give you this now because it's not. It's not it's an offer of Brittany, he's the answer for that one. At least people learning stuff. This is the

Trev:

end of the question. We're still going, one for you off.

Wayne:

Okay, just carry on in order to raise money for his crusade. What action did Richard take? He sold crown lands, he sold charters to towns allowing them freedom from feudal obligations, public obligations, nation, he awarded court verdicts on the basis of bribes, or was it all of these?

Trev:

Then, you know, when on a scratch card?

Wayne:

No, I know that would probably be likely nowadays if you wish to be.

Trev:

That's not the stable diet of the English person. Scratch card and a Red Bull. Not a red board. Yeah.

Wayne:

That's all they stock in most corner shops. So crown lands is all of all. We've got it right now, but we've got one more I think we'll have trip to make it nice. Now.

Trev:

I got a question for you. All

Wayne:

right. Let me do this one first. Richard had for 20 years been Petro? Do you see the form we mentioned we been betrothed to Philips half sister, as a result of the betrayal, watch stupid words, engagement. And she had also been raised at the core of Henry the second. Who was that lady? Was it Joan? Was it Margaret? Was it la? Or was it Matilda?

Trev:

Matilda?

Wayne:

shoe. That's the same girl allies. thing? Yeah, we just mentioned it in the in the, in the cultural part. But yeah, that one hour for trip. Not bad. 25% This is your casing. So

Trev:

you're such an expert on rainbow. Yeah, but not the really cool. Not the really cool heavy metal band. Everybody. God. Grabbed Bonnie. Rod Janan, Freddie, hold up.

Wayne:

Oh, I'm gonna get that shot. Yeah, so sorry. That was that was a given. So yeah, that's basically conclude in this week's episode Trove. So I hope everyone enjoyed it. Well, yeah. What are you hoping to get out of this next week trip?
