    Hi
    In my 2011 display I have added blue LEDs to the mega-tree and a number of RGB modules to various fixtures. There are also dumb 30 LEDs/m RGB strips added to the roofline (away from the existing CCRs). I have also used 60Leds/m RGB strips to wall wash with the strips mounted on the backside of the roof battons. I am running updated versions of the songs Music Box Dancer & Chicken Dance (from 2010) together with 4 new songs and a new voice introduction. (Total time of approx 17min)

    I have now uploaded videos of the 4 new songs for 2011 to YouTube:

    Little Drummer Boy - Ray Connif
    http://www.youtube.com/user/aussiexmas43?feature=mhee#p/u/7/Ue0EIbYFa4k

    Dance of the Woodland Pixies (aka Sugar Plum Fairy) - Note footage of this should be included in the Lifestyle program "Christmas Light Spectacular" which first airs tonight:
    http://www.youtube.com/user/aussiexmas43?feature=mhee#p/u/5/deYw-LBo5L4

    Aussie Jingle Bells - Dimmer Twins
    http://www.youtube.com/user/aussiexmas43?feature=mhee#p/u/4/6ZlbVXABeA0

    and Last but by no means least - Wizards in Winter. NB - BLOCKED on YouTube
    This is prooving very popular with the visitors.

    While videos do get the message out, they really do not show the true colours and vibrancy of the lights. This can only be seen live.

    Enjoy - Geoff

    Just a heads up that Wizards In Winter has been blocked.

    Anything by TSO won't get by the copyright police on YouTube. The answer? Vimeo.

    Great job, otherwise! And just a reminder that the Lifestyle Channel Christmas Lights Spectacular featuring Aussiexmas premieres tonight!

    Hi Ryan
    It still works for me but I have been wondering why the view count had not changed.
    Just checked the copywrite info - blocked world wide. - Ill go back and annotate it.

    Similarly - Little Drummer Boy is listed as blocked in Germany

    Regards Geoff

    After I found that Wizards in Winter had been barred on YouTube, I uploaded it to Vimeo and it can be found here. Sinnamon Lights 2011 - Wizards in Winter

    It is still proving one of the most popular with visitors despite being considered overdone by the lighting community.

    Regards Geoff

    You are 1 amazingly creative man Geoff. Amazing display again and awesomely synched. Because of the youtube copyright thingy I have a tendency to misspell anything that goes up. Replacing s with 5, i with 1, 4 with A should prevent the bots trawling for copyright violators finding the vids anywhere near as quick.

    Brilliant display Geoff - you've again set the benchmark that we can all aspire to.

    Love the exploding stars on the roof - might have to use that idea next year!

    Your display is truly a credit to yourself and you keep improving on it every year. You should feel very proud as I think you have created the Best display I have seen this year.

    Great work Geoff. ;)

    It is now time for you to sit back and enjoy the rest of the season.
    Merry Christmas.

    "despite being considered overdone by the lighting community." Geoff no matter how over done it is you still seem to have the magic to make it look great
