Day Of The Dead Mariachi Band To Play Linux GeekCruise

Well, not exactly, but check it out. The next Linux Lunacy geek cruise hits Mexico at Halloween/All Saints Day (Oct. 26 - Nov. 2) which means it can only be super cool, since it will coincide with Day of the Dead.

When I lived in LA, I went to Olvera Street downtown on Dia de los Meurtos and got the cutest little wooden box diarama, not much bigger than a box of kitchen matches that featured a 3D scene of 6 happy wooden Mariachi band players, playing La Bamba loud and long, partying their butts off, big black sombreros, very joyous, except they were dead, I mean, they were skeletons. It's always good to keep a little death around to remind you to carpe diem.

What's this have to do with the Linux Lunacy? Nothing, except that it means it will be a majorly cool cruise. Some guy named Linus Torvalds will be on board too, rumor has it.
