My name is Riley, and I play drums and write music for a band called Thrice.

This is where I ramble about music, sports, food, books, the interwebs and whatever else I deem worthy of sharing.

In addition to my ramblings here, I'm also the co-founder of a baseball-specific twitter feed podcast and blog with my good friend Ian, called Productive Outs.

I also have a bandcamp page and a soundcloud page that I'll be posting my own music and remixes on every once in a while.

Random Start: Converge, “Eagles Become Vultures”

I’ve been working on learning “Homewrecker” from Jane Doe so that I can play it for fun with a few friends, and in doing so, I’ve been watching a ton of live footage of Converge. I’ve always been a huge fan of Ben Koller’s playing, and after watching a bunch of live clips, trying to dissect his parts and having All We Love We Leave Behind in heavy rotation of late, my appreciation of his playing has jumped to a whole new level. He’s freaking incredible.

Buy You Fail Me and other Converge releases here.
