Check out my new Christmas ornament...

Well, it took me a couple years to get it, but I finally obtained this a few weeks ago... thought I'd take a picture of it up in the tree... now if I could only get it to light up...

Thanks! I'm glad someone else besides me appreciates it!

Back when I was doing a blog during the Vertigo tour, I interviewed the engineers who designed the light curtains. I asked them then if they could send me one of the lights when the tour was over and they obliged. Took a bit of reminding and following up, but persistence paid off.

I actually found a local company that might make a compatible connector, so I need to find someone with the wiring know-how to help me hook it up to a power supply so I can fire it up.

That's so awesome!! If you do get it connected, you'll have to post more pics!! Now that's a light that deserves the top of the tree!
