Monday night is usually Jazz Salon night at the Brown Note. Tonight Allison had us join her aboard her Bandit60, the “Sushi Maru”. As a side note, in case you wondered why it is the “Sushi Maru“, (surely you remember the Kobayashi Maru maneuver from Star Trek?) the word maru (丸 meaning “circle”?) is often attached to Japanese ship names. The first ship known to follow this convention was the Nippon Maru, flagship of daimyo Toyotomi Hideyoshi’s 16th century fleet.
Hopefully there will be more nautical Mondays. If nothing else, it was a good evening for some experimental photography. When there’s no lag and not much to rezz, I can actually get my computer to cooperate with all the bells-and-whistles!
