John Coltrane’s Lost Tapes

Marc Myers on the imminent release of John Coltrane’s lost tapes:

So where was this tape hiding all these years? The tape sat on the shelf at Van Gelder’s studio until Coltrane died in July 1967, when Impulse executives came to retrieve them. After ABC Records relocated to Los Angeles in the early 1970s, the tape went into storage. Soon, cost-cutting led ABC to discard reels of warehoused tapes that hadn’t been released as albums. Coltrane’s March 6 recording was purged.

This is exciting news and I already placed a pre-order. Marc has as always a very informative article and background information on the recording. Can’t wait for it to be released in the next week.

Readably: A beautiful Android feed reader

I have been looking around quite a bit, but, even though still in beta, I found Readably to be the best designed Feedbin (which I’m currently trying again, don’t ask, long story) and Inoreader client for Android.  So far I’m very happy with it and it’s just what I have been looking for. If you use either of these services, you should have a look at it.

UPDATE: Currently facing some rather annoying sync-issues, which is less than optimal.

Hampus Olsson’s OnePlus 6 Wallpapers

In OnePlus 6 Wallpapers — Hampus Olsson

It’s this time of the year, where another great OnePlus phone is released. I’m super excited to show you all the new wallpapers for the OnePlus 6!

Now that the OnePlus 6 has been released I had to check if Hampus Olsson also released/published the wallpapers on his website like he usually did, and bingo! It’s again a great set of wallpapers. Will check which one will work the best for me.

A few weeks worth of links

The last couple of weeks had been busy, as in very, and of all things, posting my usual casual links was very low on the list of things to do. Now my workload, should I get passed this weekend, should be a bit more relaxed. I have the feeling I said this before, and it didn’t work out either. I am though mildly optimistic now.

I wasn’t entirely off of everything though and did remember to send a few things over to my task-manager to remind me of posting them. So without further ado:

@manton in: Books on Micro.blog

Today we’re introducing a search collection using emoji, starting with books. Just include 📚 with your microblog text about a book you’re reading or related topic, and your post will automatically be collected on /discover/books.

This is both a great feature and idea! Looking forward to check what other people have posted (or will post) and add my own reading lists.
