Wonderful, wonderful photos Jeff. Thanks to you and to whoever took/edited them. Excellent job.

Re: Kumamoto Shakuhachi Festival Photos

Thanks boys,
Well, I took a chance on the viewer.  Glad I could shake things up a bit though.  Hope I didn't create too much of a clean-up with yuz.
The upright player is Nakayama Gishou, a soto zen monk who doubles as a jazz bassist from time to time.  Very nice guy.
Indeed...Tasmanians in the show next time.  Very tough to top though.

Perhaps this is a Tazmanian idiom that I'm not familiar with, but I suspect that your really mean, "I feelin' seasick! tongue"

In AAE, at least, the form "I be feelin' seasick" means that feeling seasick is your habitual or ongoing condition. "I feelin' seasick" refers to your current condition. It's a useful distinction that standard English doesn't make.

These American Association of Endodontists folk sound a bit dodgey, dropping the "am" from the phrase.
Seems like Brian's dialect stems from West Saxon, probably via the West Country:
I be, Thee bist, He be, We be, Thee 'rt, They be.

What may appear dodgy (the modern form preferred by the OED*) to you is actually standard syntax in African American English.

Let's not dismiss it as just some ethno-English.

*The most recent (actually the only) citation for dodgey predates the Meiji era.

It was rated "ARRRRR!"

Nice images, and an interesting viewer.  I'm giving that one a whirl on a site of mine.  Looks like the Festival was a big hit!

Arrr, it seems that me thread has been boarded and driven up to mizzenmast by some with a penchant for pirates and other such scalawags. Ye'll ne'er get me buried booty that way mates!

Re: Kumamoto Shakuhachi Festival Photos

My apologies, Jeff!
But I DO appreciate the photos (though the viewer will definitely take some getting-used-to).
Are you already in planning for the next one?
