B3nzyme, I was thinking the same thing. It seems there is always a post where someone insults Americans. It`s pretty pathetic and gets pretty old.

Those lights would irritate the crap out of me. I wouldn`t want to live next to them even without the sound, or the traffic. I don`t mind conventional light displays, even a little over the top, but that goes beyond tolerable in a neighborhood.

what is truly amazing- is the man who did this thought of his neighbours enough to stop it when it got out of hand, instead of the usual `screw you, i`m going to do what i want even if it annoys you` attitude that seems so prevalent nowadays. it`s like a Christmahanakwanzakah miracle!

The person who asked who the music was from. That was the Trans Siberian Orchestra. They have a few songs that the guitarist from Metalica played on. And they tour every Christmas Season. You should check out the concert if you liked the music.

This guy lives in Mason Ohio, a northern suburb of Cincinnati. I live only like 30 minutes from his house and I really wanted to drive up there but he took it down.

He certianly is inventive. I`d go crazy with a husband like that though as he`d probably spend most of his days in the basement making *inventions* and the like.

That`s crazy. That would have been entertaining to be the neighbors, not only do you get to see the lights but they also got to see car accidents and traffic jams right outside their doors. haha

phroedoux, they wouldnt of heard the music, i read an article on the lights a while back, the music was broadcast on a short-range radio tower, so that you can only hear the music if your listening to the specific radio channel

There`s a guy in St. Louis who did the same thing. His hasn`t received national attention as far as I know, and I don`t think it`s on any websites. But his is just as cool and he plans to do more next year. It took him 180 hours to program into the computer and 40 hours to set up.

Again I say, get a life.

Whoa, brainstorm!!! Years ago there was a family in Arkansas that had a light display that grew too huge and had to stop. Disney took it and it`s now "The Osbourne Family Spectacle of Lights" at Disney/MGM Studios. They should add something light this to it!

Robert Iger, I expect to see a check in the mail if this happens. Nothing much, college tution for my daughter would be nice.

Well, it`s not just a gaudy display of lights, it`s the coordination with the music that`s impressive. It`s cool to see once, but after that, I`d be bugged if I were his neighbor. Thank goodness for the internet, where all his work shall be preserved :-)

Damn, that really sucks. I thought it might have been stop motion animation from the quality of the video on this site, but I saw him monday on the Today show. I guess he didn`t expect it to be that popular but man it rocked. I understand why he had to take it down, but it`s still to bad.
