Thriller Sequence

We’ve synchronized the Halloween lights to “Thriller”. If you happen to be within sight of the house and the lights are on, tune in to 96.9FM to hear the show.

UPDATE: Halloween is over but you can still check this out on The Video Page.

This was sort of a dry run for Christmas this year, and we identified and fixed several issues. Now that we’ve put all the orange away expect to see winter elements hitting the lawn soon. The Mega-Tree pole should be up any day now.

Halloween Mood Lighting

Just for laughs, we’ve put out some halloween “mood lighting”, which consists of 6 flood lights and a couple of our decorative cut outs (a trick-or-treating Frankenstein and Linus & Sally waiting for “The Great Pumpkin”), hooked up to a light animation controller. It’s nothing too elaborate, but we’re pretty sure we’re the only folks with a flashing house this month.

These lights will run from 5:30 to 10:00 PM until Halloween.

Station Sign

We’re currently working on a few plywood elements of the display. Most notably, the sign which will tell people that they can hear the music which the lights are synchronized to on their car radios.

Radio Station Sign Mokup

This should be completed in the next few days.

The 2009 Haul

Here is some of the haul we picked up during Walmart’s 90% off after Christmas sale this past January. There are 150 boxes there, which works out to 15,000 lights.

On the floor there is 1000 feet of cable to be used in making custom length extension cords. Oh what tangled webs we weave drag all over the lawn…
