The Talk Show

31: Velocity Hotels


00:00:00   should we just stared at the corners we all know now where we're going now I [TS]

00:00:03   feel like we've broken the ice I'm here and we're in San Francisco right here [TS]

00:00:06   for the the Macworld / iWorld the ultimate I fan of that the ultimate I [TS]

00:00:11   found event and I've got joined here on this episode by my friends Park crisis [TS]

00:00:16   from Rogue Amoeba and and Scott Simpson from the internet that's a way better [TS]

00:00:21   yeah my Andhra it so I feel like the elephant in the room at this thing is [TS]

00:00:28   that at Macworld Expo I still call yet says macro but it's it's weird and it's [TS]

00:00:33   getting weirder I feel like you need to get into macworld to get onto the show [TS]

00:00:39   floor you need a really complicated iPad case or a limp like one of the two [TS]

00:00:45   things you crack that Joe Gaza day unlike a text message and then I was [TS]

00:00:50   upstairs I got a third floor and then I noticed it really are a lot of lamps [TS]

00:00:54   there's a lot of people at the at this conference with with leg injuries of [TS]

00:00:58   some sort it's another way of saying that might be that the it seems that the [TS]

00:01:05   overall demographic they'll run average age appears to be a little higher than [TS]

00:01:10   it's been the past I don't know maybe maybe I just always the had filter on [TS]

00:01:14   because you know every other year worked for for Apple and have been up here for [TS]

00:01:19   something or whatever but now as a person to give 0 scraps I am sorry in [TS]

00:01:25   trouble so we can we switch to be not very good as a person who gives 0 scraps [TS]

00:01:30   I think it skews older I don't know that I don't know that I think its older this [TS]

00:01:35   year but macworld in general is always cued it's like it's like the mugs and [TS]

00:01:40   you know if its older and older generation that comes to these things [TS]

00:01:43   just in general I guess a mug's in something that rhymes them up like mugs [TS]

00:01:49   and muggy knowledge Mac user group that Apple yeah but I don't know what that [TS]

00:01:55   stuff yeah [TS]

00:01:56   user group thing with that said that it's so old that saving myself here and [TS]

00:02:03   I don't mean and I you know there's probably a lot of people listen to the [TS]

00:02:06   show who still members active members of them but [TS]

00:02:10   you know I think that it's just you know you have friends who just don't get [TS]

00:02:16   together and drink or whatever I don't know but it used to be that you had to [TS]

00:02:20   you had to join a Mac user group to find somebody else to talk about the stuff [TS]

00:02:24   with because they're only like the ten of you in that whole town right who had [TS]

00:02:28   a Macintosh computer because like in 1988 there was no reason for anybody to [TS]

00:02:31   have a computer before the internet normal people had no reason to own a [TS]

00:02:35   computer and so is that so a lot of the folks who come to like a macro they come [TS]

00:02:39   probably from that culture are they meeting up with their pals from other [TS]

00:02:42   mugs do you think or they just that's how they got into it and that's why [TS]

00:02:46   they're still here and I think someone come every year and so they probably see [TS]

00:02:50   some of the same people but I think it's something we're why would young people [TS]

00:02:54   come to this that's I think that's really the question is what what is the [TS]

00:02:57   draw for young people and and they're certainly trying to get you know they [TS]

00:03:01   had Ashton Kutcher on their first Steve Jobs movie but you know they had him in [TS]

00:03:05   and just had like one of the keynote speeches and they had well I am [TS]

00:03:11   yesterday as well so it certainly they're trying to pull in a younger [TS]

00:03:14   demographic but younger people you know you can get the stuff on the web you can [TS]

00:03:18   find it funny places you don't necessarily have to come to macro the [TS]

00:03:22   information that you used to do I did just to you know maybe it's the [TS]

00:03:26   exception that proves the rule but I was on a panel this afternoon in the [TS]

00:03:31   conference thing and then when it was over some some people who read the [TS]

00:03:34   website and listen to the show came up in and introduce themselves including [TS]

00:03:36   young man [TS]

00:03:38   high school student in Matthew he was very effusive says he likes my website I [TS]

00:03:42   was thrilled that somebody you know younger than me actually reads my site I [TS]

00:03:45   don't worry to death that i've you know you as well yeah totally your Bieber [TS]

00:03:51   news going up as an attempt to earn that I asked him but then I thought of all [TS]

00:03:57   hell it's Friday how are you here and he was all my dad called me out sick and [TS]

00:04:00   took me here nice now that it's a great dad [TS]

00:04:04   but if it's open tomorrow he could have been here on IM if you want to be your [TS]

00:04:08   panel I I don't know that that's why he came and I certainly wasn't gonna ask I [TS]

00:04:13   don't know and I didn't but I don't know it's actually cooler though if your dad [TS]

00:04:16   is willing to call you out of school sick and take you to Macworld and you [TS]

00:04:20   know very enthusiastic about it really seemed excited about the show floor and [TS]

00:04:25   some of the stuff he saw no I don't know I guess there's no there's one kid who's [TS]

00:04:30   young and what seemed to really enjoy it [TS]

00:04:32   yea well maybe some of them have enjoyed the the couple of shows that I've got to [TS]

00:04:36   the podcast tapings and things like that have been nice and interesting and and [TS]

00:04:40   that's that seems vital and interesting still it's like to do so there's two [TS]

00:04:45   different things and every Euro is make this thing but it there's this [TS]

00:04:49   conference where there's panels and presentations talks and stuff and then [TS]

00:04:54   there's the trade show the expo whatever you wanna call it and I feel like now it [TS]

00:04:59   is never more separate because now they used to have like the Macworld stage [TS]

00:05:04   where macworld magazine and that's the whole confusion with those macworld [TS]

00:05:07   magazine macworld the conference and there was a macro the lady the chocolate [TS]

00:05:12   the bathtub there's so many macro so confusing and some of them capitalize [TS]

00:05:17   the W and they all get very mad which however you screw it up i'm linda [TS]

00:05:23   macworld International in New Hampshire [TS]

00:05:27   the W is tiny but I did speak to somebody today I was so I was on a show [TS]

00:05:34   for lebed I was talking to somebody in my case you but I knew them and just [TS]

00:05:39   tell me honestly think it's how do you think it's doing so so but he thought [TS]

00:05:43   that year over year that it really is made a difference that that macworld [TS]

00:05:48   stages and there anymore because people would come through the alley going to [TS]

00:05:55   get to the stage and I and this is the first year they move that stage outside [TS]

00:05:58   of the expo hall right and so it actually makes the actual presentations [TS]

00:06:02   on that stage way better because it used to be like this acoustic nightmare where [TS]

00:06:07   nobody could hear anything and you get up there and you're doing a panel [TS]

00:06:11   and your thirty seconds into it and three people are shouting I can't hear [TS]

00:06:14   you and then they'd won half the audience was asleep because they were [TS]

00:06:18   just there looking for a place to sit down there was also very true that's no [TS]

00:06:23   exaggeration every time I've ever heard there are like older gentleman sleep [TS]

00:06:28   shares get like maybe there's a nose pick going on right into your hair trim [TS]

00:06:33   and it's you know it's never to me high-pressure public speaking [TS]

00:06:37   panels are easier than doing toxin and you have to be clever for 30 seconds [TS]

00:06:42   here and there but it is no matter how relaxed you are it is very unsettling to [TS]

00:06:47   see somebody sleeping in your audience so this is better because it's gotta [TS]

00:06:54   climb a set of stairs to get there in the first place [TS]

00:06:56   yes but a judge did you guys knows you guess what deferred there is a lot of [TS]

00:07:02   seating right seems like they'd maybe didn't sell out the entire show Florence [TS]

00:07:07   so they've put in some time seating time couches and stuff I i feel like the [TS]

00:07:12   floor was pretty full I think compared to last year the year before I feel it's [TS]

00:07:16   it's pretty similar I mean I don't know what the numbers are but they're [TS]

00:07:18   definitely did notice some benches in various areas which is probably a good [TS]

00:07:22   thing it makes you know makes cruising the floor a little easier do you guys [TS]

00:07:26   have a booth this year now we've we've always done the even-numbered years so [TS]

00:07:31   the odd-numbered years 2013 [TS]

00:07:32   I just got to come out here and screw around that's that's great I've always [TS]

00:07:37   wondered how is there a way to measure like how do you measure the return on [TS]

00:07:41   investment and you feel like you can effectively measure that given that so [TS]

00:07:46   much of it presumably as kind of a branding thing right it seems like it'd [TS]

00:07:50   probably difficult decision given some of the costs involved i mean the the [TS]

00:07:55   simplest thing we do to try to measure a little bit of the return is just handed [TS]

00:07:59   a coupon of some sort and we can track that coupon but in general nights it's [TS]

00:08:04   not something where you gonna even if you're even if you're selling on the [TS]

00:08:06   show floor that I guess I would be the easiest way if you're selling hardware [TS]

00:08:09   product especially like the the cosmonaut geyser their own it and if [TS]

00:08:14   there's a physical product and they sell you know thousand units and its 50 bucks [TS]

00:08:17   each and it cost them forty grand to be there then they just need 10 grand and [TS]

00:08:21   you can see we made money on this [TS]

00:08:22   but yea certainly for us it's the branding is you're not wrong to use the [TS]

00:08:27   word brain but it's not something we're we're like oh just trying to get our [TS]

00:08:29   name out there it's you know somebody hears about us and six months later they [TS]

00:08:33   realize they need it and they say oh right I heard about something like that [TS]

00:08:36   right when I was a macro let me look it up and you know we have no way of [TS]

00:08:39   tracking that sale right now going to come back through our coupons for any [TS]

00:08:43   other system is just hopefully we'll get that sale eventually but I think there's [TS]

00:08:47   a there's a lot of intangibles to exhibiting we're just having the [TS]

00:08:50   face-to-face interaction with customers is super valuable and just things that [TS]

00:08:55   you know it's not just related to sales of stuck to a I don't know if it's [TS]

00:09:00   completely accurate but it every other year is that like your officials in 40 [TS]

00:09:04   608 10 and 12 and that's always been your strategy to happen or just happen [TS]

00:09:08   we we skipped 05 we did 06 and you know maybe we had maybe in a way we like I [TS]

00:09:15   let's let's just maybe the even-numbered years as a cheaper and you know it's [TS]

00:09:19   it's a whole lot of work and especially for 10% company it's it's not you know [TS]

00:09:23   when I don't know HP is a huge boobs but they've got 10,000 employees around the [TS]

00:09:27   world 20,000 employees they send twenty people here it's not a big deal to them [TS]

00:09:30   for us it's pretty much almost the whole company is there and shut down for [TS]

00:09:34   several days so it's a much bigger endeavor for us to undertake I saw the [TS]

00:09:40   HP booth it seems like there you know most places they go t shirt you know [TS]

00:09:44   everybody wears coming to HP went with a blue oxford shirt at so they all sort of [TS]

00:09:50   look like they worked at Blockbuster wait a polo or button down Oxford like a [TS]

00:09:57   light blue I'm actually not sure down actually have light blue oxford shirt [TS]

00:10:02   he's wearing one right now I'm sure that's great but it it gave it like a [TS]

00:10:07   blockbuster maybe I'm just dating myself yesterday what's the what's a [TS]

00:10:11   blockbuster the the thing you know you guys have nice polos that are that that [TS]

00:10:16   work well and you want to have some people will be dressed the same way you [TS]

00:10:20   need a little bit of uniform so people know these are the people I should talk [TS]

00:10:24   to rate right that the thing that I feel like is the there's certain cliches of [TS]

00:10:28   the show floor the one that gets me the most that I that I dislike the most is [TS]

00:10:33   the lab coat [TS]

00:10:35   much like we're in we're in science right now and you should that's why you [TS]

00:10:40   should buy our backup system or whatever it is you know what I think does Dr [TS]

00:10:44   savers do that I think they have like clean rooms where they're actually [TS]

00:10:47   probably using left the show floor is not a variant on the scientist is the [TS]

00:10:55   the doctor the dog and maybe that's even what they do cause maybe drive safe ride [TS]

00:11:01   for state sort of thing happen either way it's the same code it's right and [TS]

00:11:05   rape you just you by a lab coat and that's your uniform whether your doctor [TS]

00:11:08   if you have a doctor didn't wear a lab coat that you don't trust it they don't [TS]

00:11:15   have the 40 bucks to buy a lab coat to create point you need their uniform is a [TS]

00:11:19   big part of the authority that the scope it's making you wait and the lab coat it [TS]

00:11:24   is the making awaits the doctor's office I wonder about this all the time and you [TS]

00:11:32   guys are the perfect to people that is this question of when you go to a [TS]

00:11:35   doctor's office obviously have to wait for 10 to 45 minutes how much rifling [TS]

00:11:42   through the drawers due to the dam broke for me one day I was like well fuck this [TS]

00:11:50   I got I got you know a few things that can happen right either I go to the [TS]

00:11:55   jurors and the doctor catches me going to the jurors which means that come in [TS]

00:11:59   early like this sort of murphy's law knock knock [TS]

00:12:04   yeah they got enough they got an excellent that'll give me time and that [TS]

00:12:07   will hopefully you know hasten their arrival but if not you know I got [TS]

00:12:12   lifetime of tongue depressor out of there with a backup cotton swab swab the [TS]

00:12:18   C you know where to go I rifle I'll admit I rightful I'm with you right now [TS]

00:12:25   I would guess both you to be back and play you know that downward game yeah [TS]

00:12:29   that's exactly how I just sit there on the phone [TS]

00:12:32   although the last couple of doctors have had to go to get no reception I feel [TS]

00:12:36   like they've got like to have that problem where the doctors have gone to [TS]

00:12:41   have [TS]

00:12:42   there in like Faraday cages I get that mysterious circle next means but it [TS]

00:12:48   doesn't work if you're fucked it's a good idea to try the phone is given up [TS]

00:12:53   trying to get an internet connection now but when I had the thing with the finger [TS]

00:12:58   last year and had to go to a specialist have some surgery to repair a ligament [TS]

00:13:02   that I severed but it with this doctor is great doctor and judges entered a [TS]

00:13:09   force that confused state well I just thinking about it makes me that makes me [TS]

00:13:13   very sad but the terrible but you're right now I'm alright then the guy was a [TS]

00:13:18   great surgeon and you guys can bad that my finger we have a year ago could move [TS]

00:13:23   in on now it's great whenever I met him though it was very nice waiting room for [TS]

00:13:28   almost like like like old hotel I think the fact I think it may be used to be an [TS]

00:13:33   old hood but then they would call me and I'd go into a little room and it was an [TS]

00:13:39   actual . handed arms and shoulders and elbows veterans not a type of doctor [TS]

00:13:45   head shoulders knees and toes Dr come on a very nice waiting room it was a very [TS]

00:13:49   nice winning you know just like an old hotel lobby and then when they would [TS]

00:13:56   call me I'd go into a very small room totally white very small and there'd be [TS]

00:14:00   a table and I would come in there's a daughter two doors to get in a room one [TS]

00:14:05   from this waiting room you just go right into snow hallway you go right from the [TS]

00:14:08   waiting room into a room and they were all of these rooms roll around the [TS]

00:14:13   perimeter so the waiting room is central and there's a gate doors and they would [TS]

00:14:18   say you go to door sex go into door sex and there is nothing to rifle through it [TS]

00:14:23   was just a right room with the table they lead you somewhere else after this [TS]

00:14:26   so then the doctor would come in through the other door [TS]

00:14:31   and like a central chamber that can get all of them like a hallway that went [TS]

00:14:35   around and then so there I and I almost now I'm thinking maybe it's like a night [TS]

00:14:39   anti rifling it's possible maybe that's a problem I always felt a real implicit [TS]

00:14:45   social pressure obviously not to go through and I don't you give a little [TS]

00:14:49   bit of time you know if they if they take more than about 30 45 seconds then [TS]

00:14:53   you're allowed to do their fault and then out last weekend just last week [TS]

00:14:58   when you bring up I was at the eye doctor and I like a family history of [TS]

00:15:04   glaucoma real and they do like tests on the pressure in my balls and stuff so I [TS]

00:15:14   don't get to just go in and read i chart and get a new prescription so but there [TS]

00:15:18   are like three or four different tests ahead and in between aids tests they'd [TS]

00:15:22   make me wait 15 minutes but every time they would take me back out to the [TS]

00:15:27   waiting room they wouldn't let me sit in the room even though they were doing the [TS]

00:15:30   tests in the same room and I'm now in hindsight am convinced its anti rifling [TS]

00:15:34   interesting that makes sense something in your chart indicates you gotta read [TS]

00:15:41   you've got a red star and now because the hand place everybody had to do it [TS]

00:15:46   everybody went into the little these little like like like offices or [TS]

00:15:51   something and it is the and interrogation room is what I is what I [TS]

00:15:59   thought it seemed like something like the cops come in and talk to you across [TS]

00:16:02   the table right to come in through a different door and was there a very [TS]

00:16:06   large mirror along one wall now but it really it seemed like it would have been [TS]

00:16:12   appropriate [TS]

00:16:13   and that's where the chief the chief is in there tell me how guilty I eat a [TS]

00:16:21   normal person like us who just walks in and sees what's new then we leave to go [TS]

00:16:28   when you're examining you do get the food [TS]

00:16:33   well there's there's like something in the back of the in the back of the expo [TS]

00:16:38   hall that's precious and exuberantly expensive because you're trapped there [TS]

00:16:45   so I'm sure I've eaten something there I don't remember that I public probably [TS]

00:16:50   blacked out that I would recommended there's plenty good places right outside [TS]

00:16:54   the expo hall if you can get there may I i'm not not not a political person and i [TS]

00:17:01   dont have strong feelings about unions I feel like they're really good about [TS]

00:17:04   certain things and not so great about others but as a person who's been [TS]

00:17:08   involved with conferences more on the books I'd like in publishing [TS]

00:17:12   boy just the the nonsense of conferences and how you know for the carpentry stuff [TS]

00:17:19   you have to talk to bob your tap into Randy he doesn't talk to susan and the [TS]

00:17:24   concessions are all a part of it and it's a nightmare too expensive [TS]

00:17:29   yeah and I like you know and it's gotta talk to Joe the internet guy to have an [TS]

00:17:35   internet connection but he doesn't do wifi and also you can bring your own [TS]

00:17:39   trash can [TS]

00:17:40   trash can you have to get the trashcan guy and then if you want a trash can [TS]

00:17:43   liner yet I totally separate guy who's in Delaware right now all of that is a [TS]

00:17:49   hassle though for the exhibit tours right where do you know you can have a [TS]

00:17:53   trash can you can't set up your own internet you can get the cable [TS]

00:17:58   underneath the carpet you've got to have the carpet guy coming to us to separate [TS]

00:18:02   Isaiah the food thing though is where the unionized restrictions in this is [TS]

00:18:08   all we can offer it really affects everybody because you're at the show any [TS]

00:18:12   don't want to leave the show you right [TS]

00:18:14   somehow like as the decades go on it spiraled out of control and now it's [TS]

00:18:18   like prison food yeah I noticed today when I was going through I did notice [TS]

00:18:25   and I was going through what I i believe would be prime lunch time you know like [TS]

00:18:29   sometime around one and there was nobody getting food and there's a lot of people [TS]

00:18:35   in this expo you know seem pretty busy I think that's the consensus and there was [TS]

00:18:40   nobody back there is just like these lunch ladies you know ready to serve [TS]

00:18:44   people and nobody in line and it really scared of smell bet nobody pays for [TS]

00:18:49   prison food and here they're trying to get you to do just that [TS]

00:18:52   yeah it's really i mean it's the truth its convention food is on the same [TS]

00:18:58   trajectory as food that was available in the Soviet Union in the eighties like [TS]

00:19:03   it's centrally planned they have no incentive to make good stuff its part [TS]

00:19:07   newspaper its partners favor there are you know ladies with rugged waist lines [TS]

00:19:15   and no you know no smiles you have a rugged waste life I think you're I think [TS]

00:19:22   you're unfairly criticizing the lunch ladies I think there finally get some [TS]

00:19:25   food right there is working [TS]

00:19:27   yeah i think is really the food yeah alright and they don't have no incentive [TS]

00:19:31   to make it any good and I feel like in in the hypothetical world were you you [TS]

00:19:35   could do this and you could reset the food contracts at the Moscone back 20 [TS]

00:19:41   years said like all of these rules whatever it is already got these [TS]

00:19:45   concessions cover them we're going to start over from scratch [TS]

00:19:48   it's probably not gonna be great food it'll be like a ballpark yeah probably [TS]

00:19:52   like a ballpark like you'll get some garlic fries and some clam diggers dips [TS]

00:19:57   but I think that's a good good analogy you know you're not you know the hot dog [TS]

00:20:01   you get at the ballpark is not great but it's a hot dog and it's good and it's [TS]

00:20:06   you know it's at least a lot of options [TS]

00:20:10   guys I I think about this so much you know you you're too smart guys I would [TS]

00:20:17   it would be so excited to go into business with you too [TS]

00:20:21   you know just in like to build a restaurant with with both of you I think [TS]

00:20:26   be delightful so if you're in the market to to do a food concession maybe a food [TS]

00:20:30   truck truck when take too much time I have all the time in the world I have no [TS]

00:20:35   job do you have the truck I have no truck route Yeah what about food truck [TS]

00:20:41   minus the truck just the food food it's a food and indeed bring it places I [TS]

00:20:47   guess so but bike food trucks it seems like that's a new hipster thing there's [TS]

00:20:53   there is noticed that there is a food truck now in mint Plaza we're sure yet [TS]

00:21:01   bottle is there's a there's a food truck there and it's gone like they've they've [TS]

00:21:05   gone they used to be super low and it was you know it was like hardworking [TS]

00:21:10   immigrants who and you know it's imagine I often think about the the people who [TS]

00:21:14   work in like a trucker card even you know some of them don't have a truck in [TS]

00:21:19   philadelphia just to cart you're standing in a little you've got maybe [TS]

00:21:23   two square feet of space no seat you're standing all day cooking food green and [TS]

00:21:30   red and often they have a remarkable variety of food available for something [TS]

00:21:35   that they're making in a little card but now I feel like it's jumped and now it's [TS]

00:21:39   gone to like it's her made early well I think they started out probably most [TS]

00:21:44   popular food trucks were you know construction sites things like that [TS]

00:21:48   where there is driving they're they're gonna grow up some burgers and that's it [TS]

00:21:50   and at the first place I saw one that was using Twitter that was a big deal [TS]

00:21:54   was there were some sort of little upscale burger thing but it was like [TS]

00:21:57   we're going to be at Twitter made it easy right it was a way to follow to [TS]

00:22:03   find where the truck was going to be right and then I don't know that really [TS]

00:22:06   I don't know that helped exploded or what but that's that's where I first saw [TS]

00:22:09   them was using Twitter using the internet to move around town [TS]

00:22:13   yeah and not need to get a stand-alone restaurant in the permits that that [TS]

00:22:17   requires I do is I can't remember the name of it now but there's a cluster of [TS]

00:22:21   food trucks and San Francisco what are they called their their names [TS]

00:22:25   think of it later but it's it's a it's a bunch and they all kind of roof to one [TS]

00:22:28   place and then head up there [TS]

00:22:30   and it's a great it's a delightful festival of fun and they've coming down [TS]

00:22:33   into San Francisco and yet it's it's great for food options as long as long [TS]

00:22:41   as you're bored with funny puns oh yeah one of the most popular food trucks I [TS]

00:22:47   think still as chairman Bao [TS]

00:22:50   you have to have a definitely some sort of some sort of surprising decision like [TS]

00:22:55   fish meats and bread fish or in alb on me I creme brulee in a bun me when I was [TS]

00:23:06   at Drexel University that I don't know if they still do they have the the [TS]

00:23:11   Chinese food truck now they had dat we had a whole street right now Miller [TS]

00:23:15   campus like a little side street where it was every day all day you know it was [TS]

00:23:20   just from one end of the corner to the other all food cars or trucks trucks and [TS]

00:23:25   carts and was almost like a food court you could go to you can get anything you [TS]

00:23:29   know there was one you know like an Italian family and they made good [TS]

00:23:32   meatball sandwiches was it near Penn though was it near like now it was [TS]

00:23:36   wasn't I remember when I was at Penn for a summer and they had a Chinese Chinese [TS]

00:23:42   food truck and it was why UK space ke pasa yes it was a Yankees Chinese food [TS]

00:23:49   which was the worst possible name I could think of but so so you had you had [TS]

00:23:54   complete variety though not sue Evans 81 meatball sandwich or do you want a [TS]

00:23:59   cheesesteak everybody had some pretzels as they do not know the people there and [TS]

00:24:05   that was part of the Santa as I wish I was always curious about such things but [TS]

00:24:09   never denied I wouldn't ask whereas now I would ask and I i'm curious like they [TS]

00:24:15   always had the exact same spot [TS]

00:24:17   lined up there might have been it say there were eight or nine trucks and they [TS]

00:24:21   were always in the same spots never never never ever change and I was you [TS]

00:24:25   know there's no I don't surely there's no legal right to have that specific [TS]

00:24:30   spot while now that the cities are licensing where they can park in boston [TS]

00:24:34   has like the food truck parking and you know I think maybe they agree within [TS]

00:24:39   each other [TS]

00:24:40   amongst themselves your party Robert here also [TS]

00:24:43   you know local chambers of commerce tend to be against them because they compete [TS]

00:24:48   directly with existing businesses that pay things like rant and rave taxes to [TS]

00:24:52   the neighborhood and I am sure that food trucks don't have to pay tax to the [TS]

00:24:56   place in which the part that really bad at work permits or something though so [TS]

00:25:00   that's where you get your money from but that's true but I don't i think thats [TS]

00:25:04   chambers of commerce tend to dislike the existence of of those food trucks [TS]

00:25:09   because there they'll be gone tomorrow and they'll just have stolen your you [TS]

00:25:12   know I've lunches like jesse is part of it the fact that it's a business on [TS]

00:25:18   wheels if you think about the night you get used to it but I remember when I [TS]

00:25:23   first got to dress on first encounter them and I just thought well this is [TS]

00:25:26   really weird having food that's made in a moving vehicle right that they had [TS]

00:25:31   something goes bad if you know if they kill some people with some food [TS]

00:25:35   poisoning or something they could just drive it out of his problem is then it [TS]

00:25:40   becomes a thing that everybody gets super excited about like I can only down [TS]

00:25:44   for truck but that's just what we do now where did you get the steak [TS]

00:25:48   regular kitchen that's a terrible idea [TS]

00:25:51   the place in San Francisco that I do recommend that it's on Facebook and [TS]

00:25:55   Twitter it's called off the grid and it's it's just that that roving band of [TS]

00:25:59   food trucks it's delicious and they're on Facebook and Twitter I think you tell [TS]

00:26:04   me while now but called off the grid I mean I think it's called off the grid [TS]

00:26:07   for something and I'm just like random reminisces but reminiscing but there is [TS]

00:26:16   a genius guy in the when I was a Drexel is what we called him and it was the [TS]

00:26:23   name of his truck taco lou and that he think he got the nickname before the [TS]

00:26:28   truck [TS]

00:26:29   well I don't know but it's just the trucks said taco lose and you know like [TS]

00:26:35   all the other trucks he served lunch you know breakfast or lunch you know they [TS]

00:26:43   like starting to put stuff away [TS]

00:26:44   taco lose genius idea was he started parking his truck up by the fraternities [TS]

00:26:50   on Friday and Saturday night [TS]

00:26:53   and all of a sudden you know you like 2 a.m. yeah I like midnight leahy [TS]

00:26:59   Diamondback up like you know and again hard working guy there's a guy who spent [TS]

00:27:03   like all day Friday certain ppl lunch tacos and I guess you know maybe he went [TS]

00:27:06   somewhere and took a nap in a drunk tacos then ended drunk taco line was [TS]

00:27:12   just unbelievable because it was like you know nobody goes there too busy [TS]

00:27:19   right it was great and we all thought might well talk of the genus because you [TS]

00:27:25   know he did we all we thought that he should serve you should check the prices [TS]

00:27:30   up at 2 a.m. like $20 target but he didn't have the same prices he had [TS]

00:29:58   I they they must be very comfortable I guess for some people some people it's [TS]

00:30:04   fine I'm very comfortable but it's one of those things that seemingly as a very [TS]

00:30:08   quickly become a religion and I think that's why they might be mad I was not [TS]

00:30:13   aware that they're making dresser leather ones but I believe that it's [TS]

00:30:17   because the people who get into itself identify now as people as you got two [TS]

00:30:22   things I would not identify as a social person right right I run in them they [TS]

00:30:26   are to me that's it's ready equipment I great bowling shoes and I'm going [TS]

00:32:09   it's a brand and its I think it's also the story of the parent like the generic [TS]

00:32:13   version is memory foam [TS]

00:32:15   so it's instead of a spring you just said you're just sleep on a giant slab [TS]

00:32:20   of of memory foam and I would never have switched over to this kind of mattress [TS]

00:32:25   if I hadn't been my wife and our house sitting for four friends of ours and [TS]

00:32:30   slept in their beds and we slept in their bed so like you do we slept over [TS]

00:32:34   it up and down the bed that means we so you know you lay down and it is very [TS]

00:32:42   strange sort of like like like single it'll sink a little you make sort of an [TS]

00:32:47   impression it doesn't push back you push into it and I leaned back and I thought [TS]

00:32:51   well this is a really strange [TS]

00:32:53   10 hours later [TS]

00:32:57   feeling wonderful and let me tell you another thing about it that's what [TS]

00:33:02   that's amazing as a person who now my job involves you know going out at night [TS]

00:33:06   and then robbing people of their money and then coming home late and so I will [TS]

00:33:11   come home at 1 a.m. in my wife will be long asleep the beauty of the [TS]

00:33:15   Tempurpedic seen that commercial the bowling ball [TS]

00:33:31   specific cause I have a memory foam mattress but it's not I don't but not [TS]

00:33:34   tempur-pedic I don't know I don't know I i think is it 100 percent or whole thing [TS]

00:33:40   you know it's I don't know I don't know what the difference is or if there is [TS]

00:33:44   you know I i've certainly become a brand ok you're a loyalist loyalist only [TS]

00:33:48   because the weird thing about that is how often do you sleep in in other beds [TS]

00:33:52   Sept in a hotel [TS]

00:33:54   know what it is and it's a big investment yeah they yeah it's just one [TS]

00:34:04   of those things where I you know i i do I love to sleep gotta love to sleep you [TS]

00:34:08   gotta give it a shot I think they're even like I think there's even a way to [TS]

00:34:11   Lake I think they've got ya which is weird I was drugs used one I didn't get [TS]

00:34:19   or maybe like a thrice used to write like when your 30 day thing is over and [TS]

00:34:35   for more than 30 actually legally not allowed to eat more than we have to show [TS]

00:34:42   up at a cost thing without being cheap it's just ringworm [TS]

00:34:45   the problem I found with the matter is I lost some weight and the mattress you [TS]

00:34:50   know shapes itself to your body [TS]

00:34:52   ok if you if you if you lose you know a good amount of what your gonna sink into [TS]

00:34:58   that bed interesting I haven't had the problem has been consistently gaining [TS]

00:35:02   weight for fourteen years that's working for you then that's good so it doesn't [TS]

00:35:06   see now now you see I assume that once i woke up but it's no its brings back its [TS]

00:35:11   but it has some that may actually be the difference between the Tempurpedic and [TS]

00:35:16   other versions I have a lesser I don't know if if if they last we flip cars [TS]

00:35:24   every six months or something [TS]

00:35:27   I really do like again evangelist excited about things I get excited about [TS]

00:35:34   the Tempurpedic mattresses I wish I loved anything as much as you love the [TS]

00:35:37   tempurpedic mattress I know if I knocking your door wearing a white [TS]

00:35:45   sleep scientists have a sleep scientists then let me in and let me show you the [TS]

00:35:52   glory of a mattress you got da like sleeping in the guest bedroom at [TS]

00:35:57   somebody's house i'd i'd rather pay for the hotel Hotel well why what's the [TS]

00:36:03   what's the problem noises odors your noises your orders your owners are there [TS]

00:36:09   everybody's I mean yeah I i think there's nothing nicer than coming to a [TS]

00:36:15   friend's house for let's say dinner you know just for a few hours and have [TS]

00:36:20   somebody opened her home to you it is a sign of friendship and generosity way to [TS]

00:36:25   get to know people I think it's just great and the nicest thing you can do is [TS]

00:36:29   to leave and to me sleeping in their house is just way too intimate there is [TS]

00:36:34   nobody I'm lucky that I like to sleep in my own house will we make I think we [TS]

00:36:38   make a mistake when we measure sort of age or or what's the right word phases [TS]

00:36:45   of her life with our ages right as one of the big life changes is when you do [TS]

00:36:51   have both the you know their financial means but also the impatience to switch [TS]

00:36:58   over to not saying people's houses because what you know what people do [TS]

00:37:02   when they're 24 in the traveling around as they sleep on a friends couch as they [TS]

00:37:05   have two and a certain point like I will just pay or it's like this ain't the [TS]

00:37:10   same thing happens when you switch your luggage from a backpack to a suitcase [TS]

00:37:15   you like this is a life change and we should have better linguistic indicators [TS]

00:37:20   of our of our ages that make use of those transitions rather than just a [TS]

00:37:24   number because those that like that is a specific one that like if we if the [TS]

00:37:29   three of us were like super into stand at friends houses it would be strange [TS]

00:37:33   because we're out of that phase of life we're too old [TS]

00:37:35   there's nothing wrong with being younger and and doing that of course cause thats [TS]

00:37:39   that's how that's how you do stupid things when you're when you're younger [TS]

00:37:42   you know I think about it but I wanted my own toilet that's really what it is [TS]

00:43:32   will couple more in my wife was just staring at me like what we gonna do that [TS]

00:43:38   we talked about and she said you don't remember anything I was there a body [TS]

00:43:41   well she said last night you got up out of bed and then about three minutes [TS]

00:43:49   later I heard you knocking on the door and I open the door and I said what are [TS]

00:43:57   you doing and you said to me she said what do you do [TS]

00:44:02   will certainly yeah said evidently what happened was you got up presumably use [TS]

00:44:07   the restroom and then he went out there on during your sleep [TS]

00:44:12   peed everywhere in the hallway and then and then knocked on the door to to get [TS]

00:44:20   back into the room and came back and went right back to sleep as she was [TS]

00:44:24   telling that story he said the sounds like me I was I was you know [TS]

00:44:29   sleepwalking is a thing but the thing that I just listen that story is like [TS]

00:44:33   the character in that story is awesome and it's sad because I can't remember it [TS]

00:44:40   and I'm bummed about that I don't know why I just pee pee pee pee jokes baby [TS]

00:44:43   stories but ya know that that there was a thing it so that actually he was I [TS]

00:44:49   went on app.net maybe had done that before like like so how much should you [TS]

00:44:53   tip for directing all over the whole and that is a little outside the normal [TS]

00:45:00   bounds of hotel tipping where your tipping within your room if the person [TS]

00:45:06   is going to come in cleaner and whereas if you've done you've done some pasta [TS]

00:45:10   $100 bill mollen to stick a knife and do it in the hallway don't know what it's [TS]

00:45:17   for [TS]

00:45:17   yeah you definitely I guess the moral the story is in your notepad your be [TS]

00:45:21   with the check marks [TS]

00:45:23   according to the reasons you definitely want another couple I did you never [TS]

00:45:29   would have predicted that either during your anecdote you pointed at me because [TS]

00:45:35   you know that I i've had sub several similar circumstances yes and you know [TS]

00:45:40   it turns out it's fairly common like it happens like people will sleep three [TS]

00:45:46   people in this room decorated in a hotel room in a place that was not the toilet [TS]

00:45:51   it they know that they know I'm three out of three and I just don't even know [TS]

00:45:56   you never know you're at that independent verification yeah and I for [TS]

00:46:01   me and and I guess I always had the wrong idea about what sleepwalking was [TS]

00:46:05   you know it was my understanding of sleepwalking was informed by like Popeye [TS]

00:46:10   cartoons right tries out [TS]

00:46:13   into walls ya eyes closed eyes lol and it's really just sort of like I guess [TS]

00:46:21   what it really is you just sort of semi waking up and and you know I think very [TS]

00:46:28   probably commonly because you have to pee you have to urinate and your body as [TS]

00:46:32   an adult once you reach that stage where you you know just go right like you [TS]

00:46:38   actually can't like that's actually like the Jackass guys had that there was [TS]

00:46:42   howard stern I don't know but one of those shows were people do some crazy [TS]

00:46:44   stunts they they were trying to pee their pants altogether and none of them [TS]

00:46:49   could like even consciously like yeah it was I'm sure readers or listeners of the [TS]

00:46:56   talk-show pointed out because I get a foothold starter jackets whose Howard [TS]

00:47:01   Stern was howard stern and they all put on depends and they were trying to pee [TS]

00:47:06   their pants on air on purpose to as a guide which is kind of a funny guy and [TS]

00:47:10   they couldn't do it like you actually like your body is hooked up not to do it [TS]

00:47:13   so you you'd probably a good thing you have to pee your body wakes up you start [TS]

00:47:18   walking but you're not really up and then next thing you know you're down [TS]

00:47:21   there at the front desk of the hotel where in your underwear saying I need my [TS]

00:47:26   room key I'm sure that you know at Cornell hotel management you know it's a [TS]

00:47:30   three or 400 level class but its sleepwalkers dealing with you know [TS]

00:47:36   confused men in their underwear now now let me let me get your opinion on this [TS]

00:47:40   waiting a sleepwalker yessir now I think they instantly die that is what every [TS]

00:47:46   Nancy Drew mystery ever made says they had sadly died I see now I think that [TS]

00:47:51   that's one of those things where I have this misconception that you don't for [TS]

00:47:55   god's sake just let them piss all over the whole [TS]

00:47:59   whereas would i think is the times I've had these problems I think I could slap [TS]

00:48:04   in my face is what I needed the toilet right so sorry right and I i I'm lucky [TS]

00:48:11   to where I have always [TS]

00:48:13   ima no matter what happens I can always get back to sleep so it wouldn't be like [TS]

00:48:18   you want me up and now i cant get any way but I think like something to make [TS]

00:48:23   me a little bit more conscious of that I know that yes this is the bathroom door [TS]

00:48:26   not the door to hallway it would be good now somebody's gonna do it to you and [TS]

00:48:33   your gonna keel over dead and the end of it [TS]

00:48:36   john Dunn 227 the standard format for a hotel room where the bathroom is Ray is [TS]

00:48:46   just to the right or left to the right or left of the entrance there are so [TS]

00:48:50   many hotels octagon shaped and then it's a different angle have use alternate [TS]

00:48:56   fighting in there for some reason have you heard the story I can remember this [TS]

00:49:00   american life for like some sort of you know it was one of those white guy radio [TS]

00:49:04   yes it was it was it was a WGR story where they it was about a guy who black [TS]

00:49:09   guy very confident in his skills has great you know has been blind I think [TS]

00:49:14   its whole life could not find the bathroom in his hotel room and it's [TS]

00:49:18   because it was an unfamiliar configuration and there were some goofy [TS]

00:49:22   thing or maybe it was the door but it was some good thing they just kept [TS]

00:49:25   ringing his ability to walk around the room and feel what was happening around [TS]

00:49:29   the room and he would just pass right by the actual circles going in circles for [TS]

00:49:34   a long time it's a cool story and we have we should find me at that point you [TS]

00:49:39   can just go wherever you want that's it seems like the doctor's waiting room if [TS]

00:49:43   it's been that long just go yeah that's that's that's called black guy [TS]

00:49:47   prerogative to you can just deal that's fine and everybody's on board with that [TS]

00:49:51   that's that's Cornell hotel management [TS]

00:49:56   so restaurants sometimes are in a truck we've talked about this is what I'm [TS]

00:50:05   saying here with your story why truck hotel truck hotels no I don't trust what [TS]

00:50:12   about hotel van just said just Queensland hotel windowless van hotel [TS]

00:50:19   windowless van no I don't trust it caused the hotel could move well I'm [TS]

00:50:22   asleep [TS]

00:50:24   maybe you wanted because the hotel will move when you're asleep and waking up in [TS]

00:50:30   Vegas maybe omaha nebraska to surprise much like Taco lose genius of go to [TS]

00:50:38   where the people are deeply go to where the people are ya and and people don't [TS]

00:50:44   need anything from you they can just go to sleep [TS]

00:50:46   not necessarily have to get home for example or think about Las Vegas I think [TS]

00:50:52   Las Vegas maybe that would be a place where the would be a good city for it [TS]

00:50:57   because you you might wind up to 34 miles away from your hotel just called [TS]

00:51:02   the cab though maybe you don't wanna ride that there's something here [TS]

00:51:07   alright I'm sorry I you know maybe that's what normal people do as you say [TS]

00:51:11   you do is get in a cab take you back to your hotel in your ad is false [TS]

00:51:14   25 minutes away from going to sleep if it was right there you just check right [TS]

00:51:20   and who also into the hotel millionaires because you know who sponsors this [TS]

00:51:25   tempur-pedic they are not able to give people that nighttime sleep experience [TS]

00:51:29   so we buried his we just buy an old school bus AV W van a gun like US size [TS]

00:51:40   because school buses that's got a scale that throws the strip on the Tempurpedic [TS]

00:51:49   sleepy school bus back to my favorite Nancy Drew mysteries the school courses [TS]

00:51:53   but yet tempur-pedic sponsors it and I presume pays for everything I don't have [TS]

00:52:01   sponsorship works but we're going to say one way or another tempur-pedic owes [TS]

00:52:06   money to send an invoice right now the sponsors pay for everything Squarespace [TS]

00:52:12   bought the pictures sour mash bourbon delicious which is actually really good [TS]

00:52:18   we got a feel like I feel like you can hear in the show where you know we got a [TS]

00:52:25   little looser [TS]

00:52:29   WWDC so there's a big conference and then [TS]

00:52:32   and hotels get tight now they fill up and then you start you know if you're [TS]

00:52:37   you know you don't wanna spend too much and then all of a sudden you're looking [TS]

00:52:41   at Motel six seven blocks out South by Southwest even better and even where [TS]

00:52:46   they literally sell out of hotels in your book too late you you actually no [TS]

00:52:51   exaggeration no hyperbole [TS]

00:52:53   they recommend you hotels that are like and it's like and there will be a [TS]

00:52:59   shuttle right you have to get up at 3 a.m. you'll miss the morning sessions [TS]

00:53:05   but you'll get it get there by 1 p.m. and read it doesn't make sense for the [TS]

00:53:09   City of Austin to build up tells how capacity for that one week [TS]

00:53:15   school bus comes in just like a food truck well we have their cause [TS]

00:53:22   please don't let me just forced the name upon us that's just my working [TS]

00:53:26   tirelessly B school bus but you know we have exactly just an upscale I know what [TS]

00:53:32   happens when people seized this lets ok let's think about the title once people [TS]

00:53:37   see the sleepy sleepy valet valet rolling into town and they see you know [TS]

00:53:43   bus after bus coming to get you get citizens and clapping let's do this [TS]

00:53:49   party time again the name your day it said that's a that's a a working title [TS]

00:53:55   code names and shooting for like 4 star 4 and as we're not gonna get a bit star [TS]

00:54:03   tonight if you don't have a foundation know if it's available to write but I [TS]

00:54:09   think we we we could shoot for four and a half stars and settle for fourth and [TS]

00:54:14   will probably get so do we have one bus that's just the business center does but [TS]

00:54:19   it's not exactly it's a hotel on wheels but it's like 37 so many wheels it's a [TS]

00:54:26   half mile ever tell that's another let's check these off though what are the [TS]

00:54:31   hallmarks of yours you know like a nice [TS]

00:54:34   Sheraton level experience exactly four star so you've got to have a bar [TS]

00:54:42   isn't the Sheraton the one that doesn't have a car so that's Marriott have bars [TS]

00:54:48   but their run the Mormon close at 6 p.m. from 5:30 to 6:30 open when you don't [TS]

00:54:54   want to drink [TS]

00:54:55   5:36 a.m. you look thirsty slam so you need to have a hotel bar but GE need I [TS]

00:55:06   think you need a workout room I love the elliptical never gonna get four stars [TS]

00:55:11   without the health club you will need health club how we gonna do the pool [TS]

00:55:15   that's really I don't think you need to get away without the pool I think you [TS]

00:55:20   get away with that now is a great thing to have in a hotel but I think you get [TS]

00:55:24   away with that we can't do like a rooftop pool on these buses to create a [TS]

00:55:27   dieta great question you know when can we get somebody to look at this at least [TS]

00:55:31   double decker bus yeah the double-decker bus you can get a bad and there's just [TS]

00:55:39   nothing out there that's like the the Starlight yeah he who had that private [TS]

00:55:46   bath tub on the roof it's just it just jumped out to me because we were in we [TS]

00:55:50   were in New York last week for the day and saw a tour bus going through Times [TS]

00:55:54   Square and in its January in New York and it was it's sort of like a cold snap [TS]

00:55:59   so is colder than usual and there were people on the second deck in Dec and it [TS]

00:56:05   was the second deck was half covered have uncovered and there were people in [TS]

00:56:10   the under part and I thought I want to get those smells you want to get the [TS]

00:56:13   smells of New York but I can't believe that people would volunteer to be driven [TS]

00:56:21   in 20 degree weather [TS]

00:56:23   open-air but by those buses but put that pool on the open part didn't even have [TS]

00:56:28   to read this is this is previously built for success so maybe the elliptical [TS]

00:56:36   elliptical trainers there there in the covered portion upstairs in our gym [TS]

00:56:43   the patio got to the patio get some Sun and some sweat and then coming down now [TS]

00:56:49   I do have a question [TS]

00:56:50   not to be too practical about this horrible idea let's be frank how you [TS]

00:56:57   know as we as we all have mentioned here at the Marriott privacy in the shower [TS]

00:57:03   and and and and bathroom context I just sleeping I don't think you get a chance [TS]

01:04:03   school bus and it was a sign up receiving bus they're gonna they're [TS]

01:04:07   they're rolling the dice like maybe they'll look out and wake up from their [TS]

01:08:17   get a percentage on that that's how that works [TS]

01:08:20   real money-maker my standard for the success of a podcast is when you can't [TS]

01:08:25   tell if the thingy just talked about for 90 minutes was brilliant or really [TS]

01:08:30   really stupid and we just we just exceeded that standards / went under [TS]
