Bagels and lox!
In my cardboard box!
All of it smelled
My clothes and Prime

He has a degree!
His degree’s in that
Didn’t teach him bubblewrap!
The driver applies
Not enough of a snob
However hard he tries!
Driver’s on time
Either way, he works for
Wow, almost 700 followers at The Riff! I can’t express the level of gratitude I have for everyone here.
The Riff is my online home, a place where I can freely share my thoughts on music and more. More importantly, it has been a place where I’ve met incredible people from all walks of life who give me a sense of cohesive community.
Who knows what’s next for The Riff?
Well, actually, I know.
We have a slight problem at The Riff. …

Compensation for my art
But is it worth it?
It is for me ‘cause

At first, I didn’t like it, but the longer the show’s gone on, the more I see why Fleabag is the way she is. Also, a show about young people in London will always make me stay up late.
Once I fell asleep, I was in the deepest trance. This is both surprising and unsurprising since I drank a Diet Coke hours before sleeping yet I…
I’m really proud of everything we’ve done at The Riff. But we need to get on a higher plane, the next level.
The next level comprises taking our community and showing others the power of music. I was not a diehard until I was.

In fact, I know we can.
How did Aimée swiftly turn into a diehard?
There’s only one way to find out…
This weekend I did nothing but watch Mozart in the Jungle, a show I learned about in our most recent podcast recording with my cohost Rob and yet-to-be-announced writer.
Living on a beach in Florida gives me weird vibes sometimes, I know I sound ungrateful saying this but hear me out. Sometimes I want to do nothing but lay in my pajamas and watch television. There’s a nagging voice in my head guilting me, “Noah, you know you only live once! You know you’ll regret not going on the beach while you’re living there!”
This isn’t the first time I’ve…
I’m just gonna get straight to the point: If you miss out on today’s episode with Terry Barr, you’re missing out on life.
Terry Barr is a super OG at The Riff and has the longest-running column in our wonderful community, American Crisis Playlist.
Do yourself a favor and listen to our conversation.
As Ricky Bobby once said, “if you don’t chew Big Red, then fuck you!”
As I said, “if you don’t listen to this episode, then…”
