John Coltrane: Wise One It makes no sense for me to say "this is one of my favorite Coltrane recordings", because they all are. Listen to the story he tells here. Music is not just melody, harmony and rhythm. To think that would be like thinking that humans are blood, bones and organs. The humanity that pours from John Coltrane and other creative, improvising musical instrumentalists is the most important element. It isn't the tool-making aspect that makes us human, or our intelligence, it's this. Listen to these men and feel what it is to be human.
Google Photos Question Why are there two editors for photos? Is there a way to force the use of the editor that comes up when you edit an image posted on G+ (right) as opposed to the reduced one when you upload via Photos (left)?
Answer: http://goo.gl/PDOu1B After a lot of googling, I see that there used to be a back door but it now forwards to the new editor. Most of the comments on that site are from people who are annoyed with the change, as I am. I wanted to explain to a friend who sin't on Google+ but who has an account that she could use photos.google.com to edit hers, but explaining how to post, especially since it's to be private anyway, is way too complex.
