  1. Very nice display and sequences Tracy. Make that 4 of us!
  2. I had this problem at halloween and the fix was as Aaron suggested.
  3. Nice work James! What kind of skeleton is that you have in the tree? It appears to glow nicely. Are you up-lighting it in anyway?
  4. Kevin, you continue to amaze and inspire. Awesome, as always! I hope your neighbors don't overreact.
  5. Thanks for all the positive comments. I thought I'd post an update on the current situation outside my house. Last night went pretty smooth. LPD increased their drive-bys in the area and have been fantastic with which to work. A firefighter friend helped me manage the traffic which was very noticeably up over 2X from the night before. I'd guess we had about 100 cars come through between 7 and 8PM, most were first time viewers. The viewers were mainly able to self-manage after 8PM. It's hard to count them since many come and go at different times but none appear to leave before seeing Gangnam Style. No surprise there. Most vehicles were packed to the brim with people, 4-8 to a car/minivan/SUV. Viewers were very respectful and seemed to all enjoy the show. My continual promises/threats on the ELL Facebook page to shut the show down if they are not respectful of my neighbors seems to be filtering out. Many viewers actually helped out others with how to view in accordance with the rules I set. The local Washington DC NBC 4 news crew arrived around 7:30PM and interviewed some of the viewers. The light show went off at the scheduled 10PM time. The news crew hung out in the dark for an hour. Although the boom truck, with the boom fully extended, sitting in the driveway did raise a few eyebrows. We then turned the lights back on for a short live broadcast of a Halloween segment of their show during the 11 o'clock news show. The crew was awesome and even showed the kids inside the truck which they all thought was pretty cool. Today is another day and tonight is sure to see more traffic. Also, looks like Sandy might pay us a visit later this week. The neighbors have been great and very excited......well, for now anyways. So far, so good.
  6. I have a 3" diameter hole in the bottom of each Funkin which i used to access the inside of the Funkins (and lets any water drain that gets in drain out). I just hot glued them in. If you go this route be careful, they don't call it HOT glue for nothing. I bought the globes from the vendor that was linked to on HolidayCoro.com site where I got the caps. However, I can't seem to find that link now. Contact Dave at Holiday Coro. Maybe can point you in the right direction. In the meantime, I'll try to find the order and post the vendor. I bought the waterproof LED modules from Ray Wu's store on AliExpress. They are also available from various vendors stateside like CreativeLightingDisplays here and HolidayCoro here.
  7. Uh oh!!.......a major Washington, DC radio station just spent 5 minutes this morning discussing the Gangnam Style video. Any and all advice is greatly appreciated.
  8. I really, really like this one. Very well done Tracy
  9. Great show beginning. It's also great that the OPD have been keeping the peace in the neighborhood. I hope things continue to go well for you.
  10. Best $50 I've spent in this hobby!! Kevin, feel free to send me any of your newest work if you want to see what it would look like
  11. Here's another one from our show. This is Halloween by Marilyn Manson. I started with the 132-channel version of the sequence from Kevin at Creative Lighting Displays. I then modified it to my configuration and sequenced it for our RGB props. I took this video from a different angle. I have a tree in the center of my yard that messes with the sightline of the display. It's just daring me daily to cut it down
  12. Totally worth the wait. Very nice job Tracy. Now, sit back relax a little and have beer. You deserve it!
