How could I forget about the hmm-hmm light experiments? And/or; holy hard drives it’s already Decemberween? My how the year has passed in a flash. Just like these lights! HA!
Yeah, so here’s the thing–I owed you this video. And honestly, the results were great! I have some more work to do (assuming no one listens to my plea toward the end) but now I know that what I want is at least vaguely possible.

Oh–and a music credit! The closing music was
“We Wish You a Merry Christmas (Instrumental Jazz)” by E’s Jammy Jams. You can get it for free–right now!–from the YouTube Audio Library. And here’s a secret–my normal outtro song? It’s from there, too. Just search “Floaters” and you’ll find it. Don’t tell anyone.
