Dave and I run out of time to sequence our shows. We are still working code right up to the final week.
This means we usually use the "Create Random Effects" and tweak to get our shows up.
This yeat Dave and I both had BenQ 770 projectors on our garage doors. Every year, Dave always includes some patriotic music along with his Christmas show. Falcon, Colorado is right next to Colorado Springs , the location of the Air Force Academy.
So, Dave's audience does contain many service men and women.

So Dave sequenced The Madison Rising song "Star Spangled banner" in less than 30 minutes.

Dave just found out yesterday that his neighbor filmed this sequence. Dave's sequence has been viewed 2.2 million times. Dave and I wondered how did that happen? Well, it has been shared almost 100,000 times. Apparently it struck a  chord with the military folks and they shared it around the world.

Dave, thanks for remembering our military!

The  neighbor posted it on the Madison Rising band facebook page.

Here is the video.

So how did Dave discover this? Yesterday he received two band tee-shirts and some cd's. It had a note saying something lile "Thanks for the show". Dave then researched and found the video and the neighbors name. A neighbor who he has not talked to.

Good Karma


BTW, I helped dave build his megatre out of 12v ws2811's
You can also see the north poles we built this last summer.

I noticed the north poles right after seeing the tree....then noticed the projector.

Amazing how quickly something can go viral on the internet.


Funny I saw that shared from a friend of mine and had no idea it was Dave's home. Great job.


That's awesome!  I love the create random effects too, it's a great tool.
