“Grand Central Station: Any place that is overcrowded and busy; mob scene: My office was like Grand Central Station this morning.”

I’ve been blogging with WordPress since 2005.

I stay pretty busy here with my blog, reviewing movies, my online diary, and podcasting.

I answer all comments with a comment.

In addition to blogging, I’ve written a song or two. Here are my original tunes and also on Youtube.

“If you take any activity, any art, any discipline, any skill – take it and push it as far as it will go, push it beyond where it has ever been before, push it to the wildest edges of edges, then you force it into the realm of magic.”

Thanks for stopping by and reading Riley Central.
