Dress For Success

5/25/2020
A man wearing a Gucci t-shirt bumped into me at a street fair. He had a couple of burlap sacks of potatoes for pecs and a two locomotives that I guessed he called his legs.

Paranoid

5/18/2020
Books coming in the mail at random unannounced. Not sure from who. It's mysterious, provokes a little paranoia. Also been sanitizing everything, and in doing so, getting my money's worth on Clorox wipes. Follow the podcast! Instagram: @heresmything_ Twitter: @heresmything_ Follow me!

Frozen Cookies

5/11/2020
I’d be better off hoping to wake up in time to see dew on the strip of dead grass outside our house than to expect a rainy afternoon in San Diego. When it did in fact rain, people canceled their plans, cars stopped driving, it became a talking point. But it also ixnayed normal dietary protocol, someone didn’t have to get Bar-Mitzvah’d or turn 5-0 for my mom to tear open a new bag of brown sugar and dose a couple drops of vanilla extract into a khaki-colored batter.

Vicariously

5/4/2020
An admiration, an envy for the lengthy frames of cross country runners and their community. And I've taken an appreciation to running through Portland neighborhoods on late Saturday mornings for a certain reason. Follow the podcast!

Are you paying attention?

4/27/2020
A priest, a student with a short attention span, and a test to a moral compass. Follow the podcast! Instagram: @heresmything_ Twitter: @heresmything_ Follow me! Instagram: @johnroussosss Twitter: @johnroussosss

A Medicine Cabinet

4/20/2020
A house isn't a home until you've been sick in it. This goes against the millennial desire of a semi-furnished studio apartment. One plant can't cure everything (maybe 2 or 3 or 4), other variables play into it. Comfort, space, family, love, posters. Been doing some live streams over on the Instagram account @heresmything_. Trivia, live readings, 10-minute drills too. Join us! Wednesdays and Sundays at 8pm. Follow the podcast! Instagram: @heresmything_ Twitter: @heresmything_ Follow...

Fedoras

4/13/2020
I was googling celebrities wearing fedoras when I found a photo of Barack Obama wearing one. Not the cool photo where he was smoking the joint. This photo is better put as ill-advised. The way he wore it reminded me of how you wear fedoras before going into a photo booth. I’d never force my opinion on him, but if he asked what I thought, I’d say, “Mr. President, there’s a time and place, just not right now.” Follow the podcast!

Far From Bored

4/6/2020
Dealing with boredom during quarantine, being easily amused, anxious thoughts. Follow the podcast! Instagram: @heresmything_ Twitter: @heresmything_ Follow me! Instagram: @johnroussosss Twitter: @johnroussosss

Pandemic Groceries

3/30/2020
The first half of this episode is about a bowl of strawberries my mom prepared for me when I was 9. The second half of this episode is about grocery shopping during the pandemic. Follow the podcast!

Love at The Court (Pt. 2)

3/23/2020
Love at The Court is brought full-circle! The thing about this story is that it takes place only as far back as a year and a half ago. So those close to me know that I haven’t dated anyone who looks like Dua Lipa. And if you follow me on social media you’re on the same page too because my feed would maybe be only portrait-mode photos of her. Or photos of her after we’d finish a hike, so blinded by love I’d caption the photo, “Beautiful, but I'm not talking about the view." But me dating Dua...

Love at The Court (Pt. 1)

3/16/2020
This episode is part 1 of a 2 part installment, Love at The Court. Part 1 sets the main stage: a food court. More than that, the general luncheon landscape from an old job downtown. There was an employee at a juice bar at the food court that looked like a Portland version of Dua Lipa, she gets introduced at the end of this episode.

Blisters and Hobbies

3/9/2020
Because of some reoccurring blisters on my pinky finger, I’d recently been referred to a specific dermatologist who looked more like someone who would’ve made a killing as a stockbroker in the late 80s than a decorated academic. The appointment paperwork came with a twist.

Initiation

3/2/2020
My car got broken into this past week. Obviously that's not good, but after letting it sit, it's really podcast episode waiting to happen, a story to tell! Enjoy. Follow the podcast! Instagram: @heresmything_ Twitter: @heresmything_ Follow me! Instagram: @johnroussosss Twitter: @johnroussosss

Too Good To Be True

2/24/2020
The apartment that was too good to be true - I think.

Dank

2/17/2020
Buying weed when recreational dispensaries weren't a thing. You said the bud was how dank? And smoking for the first time, chasing something different than getting high. Follow the podcast!

Rips At The Knees

2/3/2020
I was on my way to the fitting room to take a snap chat when a customer stopped me and ask if we had any black skinny jeans, the caveat being that they had to have rips at the knees. What he did was no different than asking a server at Red Lobster if they sold Lobster, as ripped clothing is H&M’s forte. Follow the podcast!

Tie Me Down

1/27/2020
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

1/20/2020
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

1/13/2020
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".
