  1. Music Copyright laws???

    In Canada we have Socan (copyright protection for singer) . I sent 6 emails & 4 emails from 4 different people say there is no law forbidding you to play music in your yard for personal use. Oh but 2 email from 2 different people come back & say "you need this license (so for @$222 I can play any song I want publicly for the year.). Which isn't bad if we didn't have from March to Sept between 12 to 19 hours of daylight. I could play sequences that I created in Superstar all year. Nevertheless I go by those other emails. Howbeit I go about things differently as I go to Indie singers. I tell them what I do, show them my videos, promise them I will give them proper credit, with their website etc. Then they get back to me & some say "here, lets see what you can do with this Christmas song I wrote". A nice upbeat song, catchy & off I go. I say do you want me to pay for the song & they say, no....heck your doing all the work & giving me free promotion. Others I buy the songs from. I will tell you what, these artist help me beyond words. Via Christmas contests, I ask...I need a good song for my wife's birthday, Eddie bush comes back & says here is my gift to your wife. A fantastic song....made my wife's day. Some of the singers are right on the door step of Stardom. I have autographed cds, pictures, I received word that there is a new autographed picture coming my way. So I mix Indie singers Christmas music with some mainstream Christmas music in my display. On a side note. Choose your words wisely when you ask Indie singers for permission. Mega Arch is catching on to this Indie singer stuff. I said to Mega Arch.....how would you like my sequence to "Santa's Got A New Ride"...he said yes...I sent it...but I said there is one catch....you can't buy the song....you need to ask the artist for the song. Good practice. Now Mega Arch is a hero for doing a song called Breathe.
  2. Thin Blue Line - Eddie Bush - Singing Faces

    The song Thin Blue Line. I remember Mega Arch talking about it. Mega Arch likes to promote Eddie Bush. Eddie is a great guy. A great tribute song to say the lease. dibblejr it is a great act of kindness sharing your sequence. An important tribute.

  4. Anyone have any Boney M Christmas Songs?

    I can't remember if I have Boney M sequences. Where in BC are you? I am going to guess west coast to avoid snow.
  5. Ccr matrix

    Brian helped you that is good. I personally used 3 inch spacing. Gave me better resolutions. I used white zip ties to keep my strips up on the screen. I painted the 1 x 2's white which made the screen brighter but maybe a flat black colour would be better. I am hoping to get a vertical screen up this year.
  6. Need a new song

    This is her other version of the song.
  7. Need a new song

    It isn't a Christmas song but I think this would get people going (either version)
  8. "Thin Blue Line" by Eddie Bush - Free Sequence

    Not so much here.
  9. "Thin Blue Line" by Eddie Bush - Free Sequence

    Great I created a Frankenstein in Mega Arch. Sharing all the Indie singers with the world. Eddie has a great Christmas song too, however he likes to be asked permission before you go ahead & use it in your display.
  10. Mixing Synchronised and static displays

    I have static lights that stay on all the time during the show for the whole Christmas season. They stay on around the windows, and the house. They are in the back ground, all the ( dancing lights ) are if the foreground so the static lights are not an issue & do not take away from the ( dancing lights ). Then of course you have static display items.
