    Looks great! I'm still sequencing my 6WB mix - trying to get it finished this weekend. It's my first year animated and this song is one I've wanted to do ever since I discovered the hobby! I especially love how you've well you've got the roos hopping in your pixel screen!

    Thanks for the kind words, This is my second year. I'm running lor if you want any help with it. The roos do look pretty good. I used Superstar to draw them out.
    Thanks, I'm looking forward to seeing them work in my display.
    Thanks, Im running 12 strips of ws2811 and have attached them to garden lattice

    That's an excellent idea with the garden lattice! And the fact that it rolls up is very handy too!
    Hope you don't mind but I'm going to steal that idea for my own matrix :)

    No problem Driver. The light strings do move though. Will need some adjusting before I put it up on the house.

    This is one Song I will not be using this year due to Reports of abuse in the media.

    I would hate to see this song taint all the hard work you have put into your display this year.

    Hadn't heard about that. I don't get to watch the news. So I did a quick search and found that he hasn't been charged and claims to be unfounded. I in no way support this sort of behaviour. But from what I have read I'm happy to run with song this year. Thanks for the heads up (no pun intended)

    Oh What am I to do. Rolf isn't to popular at the moment. I have spent so many hours sequencing this song. It looks fantastic in the Visualizer.
    Do I
    a/ Scrap this song altogether ?
    b/ Don't worry about it as people have short term memory loss?
    c/ Find another version of this song?
    d/ Innocent until proven guilty?
    e/ Something else, but I cant think of it right now?
    P.s how do I set this up to poll/vote?
