Got a light mate?

When I was a lad my mum would always tell me off for flicking my bedroom light switch on and off so it looked like a disco, so I think this bloke is in big trouble.

Hi All-

The question is, "Does the music really accompany the lights?" or is that something that somebody did afterwards after videotaping the funky (but silent) lightshow at the house?

Bluey:
The music is broadcast on a low power FM transmitter. There is a sign that tells you which station to tune to.

That is amazing. I saw it a couple weeks ago. Turns out the police politely asked him to turn his lights off for the season because they had caused a few fender benders in front of the house.

That's a TransSiberian Orchestra song by the way, and it does go with the music.

If you are reading this then this warning is for you. Every word you read of this useless fine print is another second off your life. Don't you have other things to do? Is your life so empty that you honestly can't think of a better way to spend these moments? Or are you so impressed with authority that you give respect and credence to all who claim it? Do you read everything you're supposed to read? Do you think everything you're supposed to think? Buy what you're told you should want? Get out of your apartment. Meet a member of the opposite sex. Stop the excessive shopping and masturbation. Quit your job. Start a fight. Prove you're alive. If you don't claim your humanity you will become a statistic. You have been warned...... Tyler

That's beyond words! Spectacular just isn't strong enough! I'm just astounded at how amazing that looked.



Tippman, you'd think they could organise for it to be played say every hour or so, hey?

I'll see if I can find the news article about it. The guy goes out everynight and starts directing traffic... Its one hell of a commitment.

Blinking lights, like that are not that bad, yet still bother my eyes. The the warning lights of police vehicles to fire dept vehilcles can give me a headache almost immeciately.

Ever had an EEG at the hospital well you are in a dark room, your eyes closed & they blink lights off & on at different rates? If you have epilepsy, as I have, then the needle they have on you & marking on the paper, will show how the brain has been disturbed in those few minutes.

Yeah, had one of those. Had three seizures over the space of about 2 years, totally out of the blue. Last one was about 3 years ago. On drugs for the rest of my life.

Never had any problems with flickering lights though.
