How do we Stir Up New Ideas? Friday’s Creatively Entrepreneurial Question

Friday’s Creatively Entrepreneurial Question (see bottom of post for prizes) It came to me the other evening, when I was performing a quick patent search on Google Patents.  You see, back in the early 2000’s, after several years of owning a cell phone, and noticing that, whether it be for safety, or pure convenience, that everyone […]

Some More Music – Covers by R.G. Riles

Howdy, howdy! You know, I texted the word “howdy” to Mrs. Riles today and she responded, “Hey there cowboy!”… I’m pretty sure she didn’t mean this in the endearing, masculine, sexy fashion that I had imagined, but that’s what the ambiguous tone of texting is all about, right!?! That vagary that allows us to all […]

Intro to Music of R.G. Riles

For my entire life, I’ve been a huge music fan.  When you’re an only child, simple things like music, or baseball on the radio, provide a good deal of entertainment and I find that as I get older I really miss those days when I could literally just sit or lay there for hours and […]

Writing Lyrics….

Lyrics are a difficult thing.  It’s easy, in times of great inspiration, to let the words flow and put some pretty profound statements down on a piece of paper. Then you look at your catalogue of instrumentals and, you think, “Which of these matches the mood here?”  THEN, the really hard work begins. Well, I’ve […]

No More Cold Ones (aka Here Comes Bobby V – Where’s Tito?) – the Tale of the Epic Red Sox Fall from Grace of 2011

In 2004, in the heyday of my detest for all thinks Yankee Pinstripes, I found myself actually cheering for the Boston Red Sox, as they were down 0 games to 3, in the best of 7 American League Championship Series.  Afterall, they hadn’t won since they traded Babe Ruth, and there had never been a […]
