  1. I try to make sure there are songs kids like every other song. I am guessing they are the 1st to get bored.
  2. I think this is such a beautiful song but it runs a little long I think. I am having a hard time making it shorter smoothly. anyone else shortened it? thanks!!
  3. hi James' would you mind sharing Ding Dong the witch is dead and Hocus pocus with me?? thanks so much i_antrim@hotmail.com
  4. hello all thanks for the replies. the distance would be around 16 feet give or take a bit. I bought another old school controller. so I have 16 channels to play with. I am leaning toward pvc going from the star to the ground with 3 colors on each, maybe 5 of them. I should be able to make that look ok. what are you thinking jerrymac??
  5. hello all- looking for ideas..1st let me say my display is totally old school! no RGB, because I DO NOT UNDERSTAND!!!! I would like to try but have watched the videos and just can't get it through my thick head! So with that in mind, I have blow molds of the holy family, I have a star on my roof, and would like beams of light connecting the 2. any thoughts? maybe 5 beams of light? its a 1 story house with the star on the gutter line so not so high. if there is a educational video I should watch that would be helpful with the RGB please point me in the right direction! tell me what to buy in this regard in the summer sale. I am ready to buy another plain old controller and use several strings of different colored lights, I know RGB would be more exciting but..... Thanks so much for your time!
  6. hi sarge - have you watched the display in florida? go to Holdmanlighting.com go to video gallery...its there to watch. I love love love that song. I used it in my 4th of july display a couple of years ago.. let me know what you think
  7. i use blue painters tape on the garage door.. cheap and quick!
  8. that's it!! I knew you experts would help!! Thanks!!
  9. looked and looked but can not find the post of a site recommended for cat 5 and cheap zip ties. I bought from them before and now cannot find it back. thanks for the help

    mega tree colors

    I am with George on the spiral tree!! how many channels are you planning?? I have a "Weber tree" 8 channels red and 8 channels green. then I have my 16 channel spiral tree over those channels. everyone comments on the spiral tree!! I live in the middle of farm country so many guys refer to it as the auger tree. its not hard to build, if you have enough channels go for it!!
  12. I am going to try 8 poles 8 sections high. then I can do 12 days of Christmas by reliant K.
  13. thanks don! its very nice of you to take the time to answer my questions. i did try to find the answers without bothering the experts with no luck! thanks again!!
  14. question 1 when hooking up my controllers with my cat 5... do i have to hook them up in order? 1,2,3,4 and so on or can i go 1,5, 6,2,3? i can save a lot of cat 5 if i do not have to go in order!! question 2 and this is probably a really stupid one but here we go! i am adding a 7th controller to make 3 fire sticks. i only have time to add them to 3 songs right now. if i do not add them to my other songs, don't add them to my sequence at all, i will not mess any thing up? i hope?!? thanks for your help happy set up!!
  15. thanks much for all the replies!! first chance i've had to come back and look. i really like the "matrix" from deck the halls family. the 12 days of christmas is super. it looks like 12 poles 7 sections. i can see now that an uneven # of sections is the way to go. i have a bunch of 100 count white minis i was going to use and the sleeves from my christmas arches but i am thinking those might be too big of sections. might have to make shorter sleeves using bigger pvc. i dont have enough controllers for 12 poles but could do 8 poles. i hope that looks OK 4th of July is huge in our small town of 800. we host a parade, events in the park all day, and a car demolation derby at night, followed by a huge fireworks display. we grow to 2 or 3 thousand on the 4th. we also have alot of military from our small town that i would like to honor with my display. my brother served on the USS Ranger back in the 70s. their theme song was the the theme from the lone range show. i want to do that song and then scroll the words thanks bro. i really do thank you all for your advice and any more ideas are appreciated!!
