    Incredible Bob - would you believe my son emailed me that exact clip this morning - must be it has just ''hit the web''!

    A superb piece of (I assume computer) programing and a very complex set-up of lights - must be many hundreds of them.

    Most impressive.

    I pity the foo' that has to pay for that guy's electricity bill.
    Pretty impressive, though. Really amazing what people can do when they have too much time on their hands...
    And I would probably hate to live across the street from him. :chairshot

    That was wild! But, about half way through I had this thought..... Can you imagine living across the street from that? It just might drive you nuts!

    If you are not familiar with the music that is playing, it is Trans-Siberian Orchestra. I took my wife and daughter to see them for the 3rd year in a row last week. It is becoming the traditional start to our Christmas season. I had no idea what to expect the first time I saw them. I cannot possibly recommend the concert highly enough. Check their website ( http://www.trans-siberian.com/index-main.php ) for their tour schedule and if they are appearing anywhere near you...GO, GO, GO!!! It is an amazing show. Unbelievable music, lasers, fire, snow...the best stage show I have ever seen. I have become a HUGE TSO fan.

    A good job of computer animation. Watch the grass in the foreground for stop action tells.

    I too am a TSO geek. I have tickets to their show here on the 22nd of December.

    This is our third show, but our first seeing the "West" group. Should be fun, we are taking my 60+ year old folks to the show.

    That is the one of the most imaginative uses of PLC's and Christmas lights I have ever seen. This guy must work for Disney. BTY I just told the wife to add a CD by the "Trans-Siberian Orchestra" onto my christmas list.

    By all means, get the boxed set. You get all the CD's plus the lyrics and a great little book.

    Side Note: The leader of TSO requested, and received, a standing ovation in honor of our troops overseas at the beginning of the show. He then encouraged audience members to pray for the troops, regardless of your political position on the war. He did the same thing at the end of the show. As far as I concerned, it simply contributes to their classification as a "class act".

    Their stuff IS great, I have most of their CD's and love to play them around Christmas.

    It's to bad the resolution on the video wasn't a little better, I kept feeling I was missing a little.

    Dang Scott - had not thought to consider a computer animation. Whatever - it is, it's most effective and a nice job.

    Seems to have ''hit'' most of the video sites all at once - no wonder it is springing up everywhere
