Tie Me Down

Tie Me Down

2020-01-2700:06:05

I was getting milk tea at this new place in town with my friend Brae. A couple next to us took a boomerang of their drinks when he told me about some of the double entendres from Eminem’s latest album. Apparently with each time through he’d catch something new. A few tapioca balls settling in my mouth, “how many times have you listened to it?” “Eight”, he said Follow the podcast! Instagram: @heresmything_ Twitter: @heresmything_ Follow me!

Ten Packs of Trident

Ten Packs of Trident

2020-01-2000:05:32

My younger cousins got me 10 packs of Trident gum for the holidays. I think my mom gave the tip because I never told them I got through a couple of packs a week. I enjoy gum, mainly chewed to keep my breath fresh, but also welcoming the nostalgia that comes with specific flavors.
Jesus Tables

Jesus Tables

2020-01-1300:06:24

The dining hall at my alma mater had 3 long communal tables in the middle. It was a Catholic school, but I don't think that had much to do with the naming of these tables, "Jesus Tables".   Follow the podcast! Instagram: @heresmything_ Twitter: @heresmything_ Follow me!

My Millennial Cover Letter

My Millennial Cover Letter

2020-01-0600:04:42

If a job requires a cover letter I usually just recycle one originally written in 2015, subbing out the name of the company, maybe playing with a couple of the words.  This past week I was applying to a cupcake delivery job that required a cover letter. Instead of falling back into old habits, I wrote one from scratch and had some fun with it too. This is My Millennial Cover Letter.  Follow the podcast!

Lick

Lick

2019-12-3000:05:07

Someone who, if I had to guess, was a student at Reed College got an everything bagel with cream cheese at a coffee shop I was at. They licked all the cream cheese off the bagel and didn't eat the bagel, but that really wasn't the most confusing part for me.  Follow the podcast!

Day Dream

Day Dream

2019-12-2300:03:23

My 8th-grade history teacher was remarkably boring. All it took was for her to throw around keywords like democracy or enlightenment and then I would blast off to another realm. A cause and effect no different than ending up in a 7/11 after puffing on a joint or waking up groggy after taking Nyquil.
WAF Exam

WAF Exam

2019-12-1600:06:09

With a top-knot for hairstyle, I walked into a restaurant looking for a job.  Follow the podcast! Instagram: @heresmything_ Twitter: @heresmything_ Follow me! Instagram: @johnroussosss Twitter: @johnroussosss
Gin and Tonic

Gin and Tonic

2019-12-0200:05:22

I feel like I've had a cold for the past 4-months. I went to the doctor's office to check it out and ended up learning a thing or two about the medical assistant taking my vitals. 
Tha Side with Obed Padilla

Tha Side with Obed Padilla

This installment is a collection of entries from some of my notebooks around the past year. Some of them are just a sentence, some are a couple of paragraphs, there's even have a poem in here. Some have dates and some don’t - the ones that don’t are usually the sentences that I randomly wrote on a page with no explanation. Follow the podcast!

The Horse Upstairs

I was aware that dogs and cats are allowed in my apartment building, but I had no idea thoroughbred horses are too.  Follow the podcast! Instagram: @heresmything_ Twitter: @heresmything_ Follow me! Instagram: @johnroussosss Twitter: @johnroussosss
Ideal Day

Ideal Day

I matched with someone on Bumble and they asked me what my ideal day was. Follow the podcast! Instagram: @heresmything_ Twitter: @heresmything_ Follow me! Instagram: @johnroussosss Twitter: @johnroussosss
Be Now

Be Now

2019-10-2800:06:50

Leaders in the self-help space have officially exhausted the phrase: be in the moment, and now more often using: being present. It means the same thing, the only difference being the latter looks much better in cursive on a coffee mug. As far as I’m concerned, the over/under for a new moniker to get pushed by a group of influencers is 10 years. My prediction: be now, and I’m taking the under.   Songs used: Chicago Boy- Ari Lennox and Bitch I'm On- Guapdad 4000 Follow the podcast! Instagram: @heresmything_ Twitter: @heresmything_ Follow me!

Once Upon A Time (MMC #67)

Once Upon A Time (MMC #67)

Once Upon A Time this guy threw on a Stussy windbreaker. This is the beginning of a modern-day millennial love story.   Follow the podcast! Instagram: @heresmything_ Twitter: @heresmything_ Follow me! Instagram: @johnroussosss Twitter: @johnroussosss
Nordstrom (MMC #66)

Nordstrom (MMC #66)

2019-10-0700:07:34

Nordstrom smells like someone spilled white wine everywhere, and instead of addressing the spill with vinegar or some sort of cleaning solution, they just laced the entire building with perfume.

The Résumé (MMC #65)

The Résumé (MMC #65)

2019-09-3000:06:33

This is a story about a young man getting too meticulous when highlighting work experience on his résumé.  There's a Quasimoto (Klay Field) and Madlib (myself) vibe here that I didn't recognize until I was editing the episode.  At first, I was planning on getting someone to interview me, but not sure if I wanted a radio, reporter, or normal voice. I tried to manipulate my voice to be more feminine (I was going off a tutorial online). Instead, I got this Lord Quas-ish pitch, and very glad I did.

The Delicatessen (MMC #64)

2019-09-2300:11:45

I've been watching a lot of Curb Your Enthusiasm clips lately, oddly enough I walked into a deli the other day and sat in between what looked and felt like 4 Larry David cosplays. We enjoyed good conversation, I did most of the listening. Also had a good bagel while I was there too. Follow the podcast! Instagram: @heresmything_ Twitter: @heresmything_ Follow me!

Electric Scooters (8/17/18)

Electric Scooters (8/17/18)

2019-09-2000:06:44

I think this is one of the more timeless episodes of the podcast.  Here's the original description: Electric scooters have seemed to assume the main transporting duties in Portland and I'm all about it - they are unbelievably fun. I was thinking about possibly getting into biking to work to help shed some lbs, but with these new scooters, I struggle to see that happening. Maybe I can trick my body into thinking I'm biking?
