Happy Birthday!

It's my son's birthday today, so I posted this on his FB page.

This had better embarrass him...

Target Family Night: MERRY TUBACHRISTMAS!

Let's see if the internet will let me embed a video from the Kennedy Center...

Skip to 44:00 or so, there are a couple of good shots of my red and green hearts gettin' in time with the beat.

Tomorrow, TubaGuy is gonna protest downtown, so tonight, he's programming his sousaphone's LED message board with such pithy phrases as "#PresidentS**thole" and "Cheeto in Chief".

So, if you have something pithy you'd like to be blinked, let me know!

Woo-hoo, I'm on TV again!

If you’ve ever driven through Fairfax, Virginia, during rush hour you’ve probably seen the startling image of a man walking around playing a tuba. You may have wondered what is up with that guy?

Well here is the full story of Jay Converse, also known as "Tuba Man": http://bit.ly/2dPO2aJ

This week I moved the control box (and the rear view mirror) down from the bell to the horn body. I tested lots of positions before I committed to the velcro, so I think it's going to work out great. Now I can see what the LEDs are doing without looking away, and change the programming without moving my arm.
