  1. As it seems, there is a lot of folks that have gotten to busy to post on the forum. I am of the guilty ones. I had posted a few things right after Halloween but as usual, YouTube pulls the plug claiming copyright infringements. Bummer. I want to say that the first year at Buda to pull off a display was difficult. New job and new house. Things are not much easier for 2016. Company sold, and back in a new job. But, I have my sights on a new display for 2016 and I have already begun working on updating sequences and building new props. New postings to come for 2016. I wanted to recap
  2. It was a major pain in the @$$! My fingers bled from all the zip ties that I put on. Then I had RGB nodes that went bad before show time, but it came out pretty good.
  3. I used one of spiderwebman's spiderwebs and made a 16 channel RGB web out of it. Turned out pretty good.
  4. I guess YouTube is afraid of Sharon Osbourne... They pulled both of my Ozzy sequences (Crazy Train and Bark at the Moon) I have them posted on Vimeo and I have not had any problems with them there. They recognize "Fair Use" YouTube can..... (Fill in the blanks)
  5. Looks Great! Excellent Job!
  6. Steady stream of folks came by tonight to see the light show! Nothing like when I was living in Odessa but I am very ok with that. (No more CrAzY!) Speaking of Crazy.... All ABOARD!!! https://vimeo.com/143910063 (Crazy Train)
  7. Here is the second video of my light show for this year. I am still struggling with the camera light balance but I liked how the fog and lights looked on this one. https://youtu.be/rtxntqzT2wg (The Ripper) Play in HD!
  8. Last night was the first good night weather wise and light wise. Everything went off without any major malfunctioning.... Well except for my video taping. I was able to capture a couple of sequences. Here is O' Fortuna - Bark at the Moon. More to come. https://youtu.be/2kbPZLj845E
  9. Fired it up tonight before all the rain hits this weekend. I still have a lot of gremlins in my lights. Part of my Web did not work. Either the dmx board went bad or the power supply. I thought I had all my dmx addresses set but some of those lights did not fire either. Neighbors loved it though. They did not see the flaws. Sigh.... I wish I could be like them.
  10. Love that Song! Looks Good!
  11. Gremlins have really gotten to my Dumb Nodes. I have more nodes going bad on the strands the longer they run. Not running that many per channel. The one that crapped out only had 22 nodes. I must have gotten the B Teams batch. Very frustrating.
  12. Always looks great Kevin! Trying to work the gremlins out of my lights and hope to get my show going this weekend!
  13. How many out there have been cursed with the Light Gremlin? Had tested my web last month and everything was working fine. I put the web on the house this last weekend and finally got all the controllers hooked up only to have one section not firing RED on the RGB lights. Tested all connections only to find that I have pulled a wire (Red) from the line when I put it on the house. Sigh.... Nothing like climbing up on a ladder to solder a wire... I am doing full build up this weekend. Hopefully no more Light Gremlins!
  14. That looks great! My wife has helped me paint in the past but I just can't seem to get her into the total spirit. (pun intended) She is great at putting are candy / gift bags together and is a good sport at wearing a costume with me every Halloween night, so I really cannot complain!
  15. That is funny. I kept fog juice in the old foggers and they worked fine.. Cleaned and pampered the Chauvet and it crapped out on me. Go figure.... Oh well... What is another $100 bucks in the big scheme of things of this addiction!
