Ep 246 - No Sleep

August 2, 2022

On Friday after I went for a swim in Barcelona I stumbled on this neighbourhood deli in what I guess is a kind of fancy part of the Gothic Quarter. The guy made me a sandwich, and I ate it on the marble step of a nearby apartment building. It was such a beautiful moment. The last week has been full of things like that. I'm having the best time.

Ep 245 - The Bingo Gig

July 25, 2022

On Wednesday night I did a gig in a bingo hall that would have to be up there with one of the worst I've ever done. Top 5 I reckon. I have nothing against any of the people involved in booking me for the gig or putting it together - if anything I am still very grateful for the work! But boy, it was a rough one hahahaha... Still, I'd rather relive that again than have to feel the stress I'm feeling right now about flying tomorrow. This is absolute torture. Eugh.

It's the last week of winter! This time next week I will be in the air, on a plane headed for BARCELONA!! EUROPE!! It's happening oh my god it's finally happening I honestly can't believe it. I'm so excited, and scared, and nervous, and incredulous. This is going to be the best summer EVER!!!

Ep 243 - What Is A ’Notary Public’?

July 12, 2022

I went to a notary public yesterday to get the last of the forms signed for the US company that's distributing my special! Before I had to get this thing notarised I had no concept of what a notary public was, and now that I've dealt with two of them, I know even less. Who are these mysterious figures? Where do they come from? And why did the one I saw yesterday have four gold chests in his office like a pirate? All valid questions, any help welcome.

Ep 242 - Titanium

July 5, 2022

This morning I tried oil painting for the first time, and far from attaining a state of clarity, I was just reminded of all the times in primary school that my art teacher got mad at me for making shit stuff out of clay. Then about 9 minutes in to this week's podcast, while trying to figure out what paint is made out of, I think I attained that state of clarity. If clarity is having your mind completely empty of any thoughts, then yeah, I was right there. It was glorious.

Ep 241 - Feelings

June 28, 2022

This week in therapy we spoke about feelings - CAN YOU BELIEVE IT?? Lucky for me, there's been heaps of stuff this week to practice on. Also my friend Bella Fowler wrote a phenomenal article for news.com.au about the decision on abortion in the US, so I challenged myself to speak about that for a while without saying anything stupid. I reckon I got through it.

Ep 240 - What A Great Weekend

June 21, 2022

After all my talk of giving myself time to relax and enjoy myself I've finally started doing it! This weekend I went to see my friends Flimsey Lohan play a gig at Bad Decisions in Fitzroy. On Sunday I went with a few mates to the Reclink Community Cup at Victoria Park to watch the mighty Megahertz defeat the slovenly Rock Dogs. And on Saturday, joy of joys, I treated myself to not one but TWO ice cream treats. Somebody restrain this man he is having AN UNSAFE AMOUNT OF MUCH FUN!!!

Home on Sunday! Melbourne is beautiful and cold, just the way I like it. I made dinner for one of my housemates on Sunday night and spent Monday relaxing as well. Almost finished my Steve Jobs book. A few mishaps, but all-in-all, pretty uneventful really!

June 7, 2022

This week I'm recording from the Virgin Lounge in Brisbane Airport after the pleasant surprise of achieving Velocity Gold status. So long peasants and disgusting serfs, I now dine for free behind the locked door of privilege. This week I also had a lovely trip to Laidley, and saw the fantastic City Piss at the Outpost in Brisbane. It's been brilliant!

James Donald Forbes McCann is an Adelaide-based comedian, writer, podcaster, and future boat-owner. We went to McDonalds after a show at the Rhino Room and after eating burgers in his car, we turned the mics on and had a conversation about what we want out of life. James is one of the funniest, most unique people I know, and I always love talking to him.
