“The summer has finally arrived to Paris: balmy 30 degrees, sweaty tourists…. It is even more amazing that the moment music begins sounding all those people who a minute ago were hurrying along busily , those people suddenly stop in their tracks and dive into the magic of sound, like it was a cool pool. Enjoy this short report for http://www.streetpianos.com and next time you suddenly hear piano sounds on a hot summer day on a street – it’s not an aural mirage , it’s for real – come and join in !” Continue reading →
I have recently experienced some unwanted activity on my website. To be more specific, some of the followers have associated with you too, my very welcome and followers.
In today’s world , I should think that the most fundamental right as a blog administrator would be to decides, upon revising the content who will, or not be approved to become your blogging family.
As I requested several times and through different avenues, WordPress.com so far dismissed my requests to implement Setting choices, allowing us to decide who will, or will not follow us, based upon subject matter, interests, language, and so many other valid criteria in existence here at WordPress.com.
At this time WordPress.com has no way to allow us the choice of moderating access, compared to Twitter, or even Facebook.
I think that Twitter services have a direct, easy to use, friendly way of empowering a member to freedom of association, and everyone of us is entitled to, without having o ask WordPress.com administration to do that for us upon request (which as I said earlier does not work, or even worse to have to directly contact such followers, which is beneath me (at least).
Here is how Twitter deal with this issue, at a immediate action of the twitter user (highlighted in yellow):
Twitter v. WordPress Settings
Following is a Poll (my first) asking for your input in this issue, and the question is:
“Should the administrator of a WordPress.com be allowed to decide upon the membership at their site?”
Should you need further clarification on this matter, please feel free to comment, before voting!
Thank you Friends! (as you can see this is NOT about you, it is about us all, I am sure you can too see why
Following is one example for the reasons I requested that word.press.com, allow for administrators’ settings. It would save time, and allow one the peace and tranquility of not having to interact with unwitty profane and vulgar characters!
This website is about art, artists and the way some of them have influenced my whole life.
If at times the content may seem nostalgic, is only when it resonate in quality, in message and in power to influence human knowledge of one’s feelings.
I am reminded of the little time we have to meditate upon the beauty around us, in an infinity of forms.
It is a duty, I think to share values, like leaflets over a monotonous life, and troubled civilization, away from the roll of coins that cannot buy neither a soul, nor that which makes us human.
So happy trails, and I hope you too will find something in theses pages that you’ll like to share with others.
Thank You Friends,
Danee Robinson is gifted with a pure, soprano angelic voice. She is an evolving presence in the world of classical music, and is getting more and more attention in the world of music, from an ever larger audience. How to describe in words her presence in the universe that’s larger than any imagination, the universe of music:
‘I am therefore I sing’
I feel her message throughout her musical career, in her album “Canto di Gioia” (Song of Joy) on stage, and in this beautiful interpretation of “Mandoline”, composed by Claude Debussy, in 1883, for piano and soloist on the poem of Paul Verlaine. A composition exuding youth, and its capacity of playfulness, freedom and happyness…Of love everlasting. Continue reading →
I created this video with the YouTube Video Editor (http://www.youtube.com/editor) Filmed with Android: LG OPTIMUS ELITE White clouds, blue skies, all seen through the green branches of the trees, with a background of running breeze through the fresh, green leavage…If we are lucky enough we can just let it fill us with the miracle of nature we take for granted every moment because: There is nothing to replace it, nothing to act as its surrogate, nothing in waiting, after all this natural creation is destroyed. Respect and preserve nature, find its meaning keep it clean, as you would your garden…It is your garden!
This insignificant video was taken under a tree along the trail at Turnbull Canyon, yesterday. Enjoy! This is my personal video: As such it cannot be used by any for profit organization, including any TV station in the USA, or Abroad (this selection does not appear anywhere in the long list…) Without MY Written Approval…It is Copyright, you see!
errorikdotcom Sunset captured from a GoPro HD HERO2 on an IKEA kitchen timer laying on the sand. GoPro settings: 1 photo every 0.5 seconds The end results was about 4,000 photos… (over 8 GBs) Put them into a 24fps MOV Brought into FCPX, did some color adjustments… the main time-lapse portion was then speed adjusted 200% (so I could have done 1 photo a second) … the last bit where someone picked up my camera was left at 100% speed, so you can see what true 1 photo every 1/2 second looks like when speed up to 24fps.
