  3. Well - its time to get started on this years (2012) display as I will be adding five 6 point awesome cosmic color ribbon STARS (each one is 5 foot wide) above the awesome arches and and a new lightorama product for this year on the eve of the house, cosmic color bulbs. I am also going to upgrage the lights in the big tree to Light Emiting Diodes (led's) as that will make it 2 times brighter and I will be adding more strobe lights.The add ons will be 1,050 more channels to program in the software this year for a total of 1,982 channels!!(I guess I better get busy --LOL) I will also be adding so
  4. This sequence is from my 2011 Light-o-rama show. 80 channels and approximately 25,000 lights. The circle/flower pattern is from an original idea of mine where with a simple geometric pattern I could make multiple shapes to animate. The sequence was written with S2 and involved making around 10 tracks for programming specific shapes. I am a musical instrument repairman by trade and this tune is from a trombone player I have done repair work for. When I first heard this song I knew I had to program it. Rock and roll has got nothing on some of these old big band numbers.

  10. I want to share a little something about my obsession with Christmas Lights. It all started when I was 13 years old and we lived in Shelton,I had a Seattle P.I. morning paper route with 60 or so customers, the Christmas papers were like 3 inches thick with sale flyers so one of my friends helped me with the route and the man that delevered the huge 14 "HUGE" bundles of papers at 1 A.M. loaned me another paper bag for my friend to use. so we hustled and got all the papers delivered by 4 A.M. thats when me and my friend got into some mischief and started to steal christmas lights from yards(why
  12. Here is the one that I made ---has 5, 4 foot Florescent lights -works good for where I live, as the cars are wizzing by at 50+ MPH
