What is going on here? This is something I recorded at 11:30 PM because I have a need to give you some content all the time! Your appreciation of my efforts has driven me to make this chit chat. I hope you like it.
Hilaryann Erlandson shares the passion of her craft performing on stage with us. We also talk about how allowing oneself the freedom to fail can have epic creative results. I found this to be true in creating my trees with no inhibitions, to just let them be what ever they wanted to be, and they wanted to be beautiful. Jessica brought this concept into an internal struggle in saying that maybe we should not beat ourselves up too badly if we just fail in life some times. Get back up and try again, something beautiful will come from it!
Let's do this thing! Those words have made countless artistic endeavors come to fruition. Natasha started making pop up art shows at unique locations around Everett. I also started on a new adventure raising a baby crow by using those words! Come hang out with me and Jessica Hodgeson as we get the details from these wonderful guests.
I have been searching for someone who would like to talk to me about kites, and a lot of people have been afraid. Then I met Ashlyn, over a kite, and I said, “we gotta do it”. She was down, so here we are with an added bonus of what it means to have feet. Step into Ashlyn’s world with me and let’s dance on into the night!
Well, well, well, do I have a banger for you. This week’s episode is a solid 2 hours of delightful conversation with Matt, Max, and Sam of the band The Requisite. The three hold various levels of interest in Anime, so it was really a delight to explore the topic through those layers. They lent their great talents to Soundaffection to create a beautiful tune about one Child’s quest to watch anime. Then we opened up the can of worms called “sell out”. it was fantastic. Please to enjoy.
Everyone you know right now could move out of your life at some point. They also could move back into your life later, so keep kind to all you meet for meeting may be a regular thing. Welcome to this conversation with my friend Rob Blazey. Working at Boeing using laser technology to make sure things are built exactly right. He also tells us that anyone can a guitar! Let's enjoy!
Raz is a very cool person! I get to meet so many wonderful people on this platform, and learn so many great things. I love passionate people! Something you should know about Raz is that he is down for the BBQ. you got one going on? Throw him an invite, and you better have some homemade sauce to go on there too.

Tony' V’s most iconic individual other than Tony himself: Ben Scott. Ben has been putting on a show at Tony V’s Garage for the last 4 years to raise money for Strong Against Cancer called SLAM. Which stands for Support Local Artists and Musicians. Natasha Nelson joins him this year to curate art for the event. June 14th and 15th. Also we got an inside look at the balance of bouncing. When to go in, and when to just be a sassy Ben. 😆 You know what I’m talking about.
The best time to have Ryan Crowther on your podcast is two weeks after Fishermans Village Music Festival has just ended and he has ‘nothing’ to do. I’m Kidding! RC has been working hard for the music scene in Everett for many years and this year’s FVMF was a testament to that. However, we mostly talked about his obsession with the peaceful act of fishing. 🐠 🐟 🎣
What? Two hours of anxiety laden china visits? What good time is this? Well I will tell you that it is the best time with Alex Treshou. My conversation with this good fellow was so very delightful. Alex is deep in the Everett community and I rarely see him since he moved away, but those rare moments are alive with thoughts and theories. I knew it would be good to have him on my show, but this was GREAT! Thank you Alex for sharing your joy and pain with us!
We have had some nice weather in the Pacific Northwest Emily suggested the park and I have not had this much fun recording outdoors since Kyle and I went to the Jetty! Emily has been involved in comedy for some time now and since 2017 she has been building an improv troupe. I got to join them for a few of the classes and it was so much fun! I especially enjoyed the 3 headed story telling monster! We also talk about politics and how talking about politics can be difficult. Please to enjoy!
Michael Nanie, and Natasha Nelson talk to me about making a festival happen. Hempfest is a big movement in seattle that has been going on for several years, and has pushed the conversation on legalization of weed. Michael argues that the fight is not over, but the fervor for it has been undercut by the law that was passed because many people have accepted the current law as the freedom that the movement was seeking. Michael says that there is much more road to travel to see actual legalization. I think being able to grow it at one’s home might be a big piece of the goal they are pushing toward.
Sam has a unique vision of human connection. Kris and I walked with him through a garden of tubes that lead us to believe we could touch the absolute center of the unknown universe. Check his marvelous work on his instagram @samthatiam to check out many of the visuals we talk about on this episode.
Hello Everythingers. This is the moment when everything you do actually matters. When the step forward is clearly leading you toward or away from your life goals. When people that you meet could change your perspective on life. When the words you say to those around you hold life producing power. What is this you ask? It is every day life. It is just clearer in High School, so let’s think about us!
This guy… This guy has plopped himself into our scene here and has pulled us all closer together somehow. This really made me interested in talking to him to figure out who he really was, and find we did! This young gentleman has been across waters and across the lands. After this conversation my appreciation for this fellow has increased 150%. Thank you for your time my dude!
This is a unique episode filled with the delightful conversation you have come to expect from Only Everything. A record number of 7 guests entered the Iron Ring of vocal discourse to explore artistic merit, black Jesus and the Salish Summit series happening April 19, 20, and 21st! The Salish Summit is a celebration of unrecognized artists in our community! come check some unexpected work!
Hey it’s that guy who went to Portland and came back! The first of his kind to make that trek into the dark lands and return with his spirit unbroken! AWP is a good gathering of all things poetry and word exploration with a baseline of building good relationships. ❤️ wonderful. I also attempt to integrate music from the band Enamity. Into the show in kind of a music review sort of situation.
Welcome listeners! And readers if you are reading this right now! And if you are doing both? You are the true leaders! Okay I know dad jokes was last week. This week we are talking about dinosaurs and participation in government with my new buddy Valentine.
1) I'm about to listen to the Only Everything podcast episode called "Valentine -- Dinosaur Votes." (And I should admit right away that I'm pretty darn excited to hear about the dinosaur situation -- as reported on Only Everything!) I'm planning to jot down my thoughts, while listening . . .
2) I have seen (at least once), that meme which was mentioned, about how "nobody asks your favorite dinosaur anymore" (when you're an adult). (At least once) I went ahead and reported my favorite dino -- that time, I remembered what it was! (Well, a name of a dino-type jumped around in my brain so I looked it up, and YUP that one looked pretty good so I figured it must be my favorite). And, (sidenote), I did take a class (in college) which was ONLY about dinosaurs, HOWEVER: I realized (today) that I couldn't remember what that dino-type was, that I remembered (a while ago) when I saw that meme (!!!) It's time to do new research, (it's always a good time to do new research), and GUESS WHAT!?? There is a dino-type which is famous now, (it has been Wikipedia-ized, at the very least), and . . . it's my new fave now (even though I might not have heard of it before, even in the class I took), or it might just be that I didn't remember it (if I did learn about it) . . . (either way, it's cool, and) . . . please let it be known that THERIZINOSAURIA is the bestest dino. (According to me.) Because: CLAWS. (Also, because) . . . just try saying it's name -- "Therizinosauria" is fun to say!
(And just picture a haiku, such as this one . . . )
Theramins for the
the thrillingest thing!!!
(You believe it, yes!!?)
3) (It's time to move on to #3, because #2 was getting too long.) Continuing onward about the Therizinosauria. The idea is: they were herbivorous critters, and used their giant claws (one meter long) to "grasp and shear leafy branches." (That's a pretty good idea.)
4) I 'm listening to the podcast right now, and thinking to myself, "pterodactyls are really cool, too; it will be interesting to see if they make an appearance in this podcast episode about dinosaurs."
5) I remember our dino-guide in the dino-class, (an amazing professor at the college), talking quite a big game about warmbloodedness, (there was stuff happening which pointed in that direction). Another important thing to keep in mind is that we have to do our best-est guesses, about dino-colors! (We don't really know for sure what colors they were, because no photographs were snapped, back in the Triassic, Jurassic, Cretaceous.) Cameras hadn't even been invented yet! (It is possible that people brought cameras to the Triassic, Jurassic, and Cretaceous using time machines, but I have no direct evidence of this and I have not personally seen any photos.)
6) YAY -- (Caleb mentions pterodactyls, and now I am so happy!)
7) I am suddenly curious about how big dragonflies were, (once upon a time a long time ago), so I'm going to look it up. I found what I want: they were GINORMOUS . . . (okay, it says these critters "resembled and were related to" the modern-day dragonflies) . . . ancient insects in the genus Meganeura had wingspans of 70 cm, (that's 27.5590551 inches). That's PDB. (Pretty Darn Big.)
7.99) There are other growing-capsule thingies (that you put in water and they EXPAND), it's not just the dinos! (Mentioning that, so nobody has to miss out.) (Hint: Fred Meyer. Toy section.)
9) Has Caleb already mentioned his fave dinosaur, somewhere in there, and I somehow MISSED hearing it? (!!!!!!) Kris's Fave Dino (KFD) = Triceratops. Valentine's Favorite Dino (VFD) = T. rex. (What is CFD???) And Caleb, I'm soooo sorry if you mentioned your FD, in there (and I just missed it).
10) I know the thing you are talking about, but I can't think of it's name! (The binocular toy with the picture-disc thingy.) Back to google ----> VIEWMASTER. (Ta-dah!) (You can do an Amazon to get this.) (Maybe Fred Myer, but I can't promise, I haven't looked.) Prepare for TOPIC SWITCH!
11) (Mini-thoughts, related to voting.) I think reading up about the people who are candidating, and the issues, is SO GOOD! Also, there are at times, quite a few candidates and issues. So I think that it is good for people to go ahead and vote as well as they can, on the people/issues they've decided on -- (while also, at times, feeling free to leave a few items blank, if they haven't gotten around to researching everything / figuring out which options they prefer) -- it's okay to do it that way if that's going to mean a person will vote the many things they ARE ready to vote on; (rather than deciding they aren't ready, and then not voting on anything). That was a long sentence to share the idea that voting imperfectly, (such as not doing a completely complete ballot), is better than not voting at all! (It is GOOD to make our voices heard, especially on the issues we cares about the most!)
12) Also . . . (fun fact) . . . if you turn in your ballot at a ballot box, on election day, (at least if you do so near the end of the day) . . . (well, it happened to me, once!) . . . there are people standing there to give you an "I VOTED" sticker!
13) Oh wow, that was so cool that the number of thoughts about this episode, turned out to be exactly an even dozen thoughts! (Oops.)
I have known Josh for a long time now and we finally sat down for a nice talk. The subject of dad jokes surprised me at first, but after a moment...yeah, makes sense. In the end it turned out to be a more expansive talking point than I anticipated - very fun! I know this guy has some other sweet interests, and I hope to explore those in future chats!
