    Make sure that you have that sucker braced well. I tried to put mine up in just a light wind last year and it was impossible so I ended putting it on the front of the house

    Thanks for the advice! We saw that and luckily my brother is a fair good carpenter. He's helping me with it and as much I am stressing easy to put up, I have been stressing stability, too. At the end of the day, the top is going to be 12 feet off the ground. Ha!

    Here's my pumpkin. Well, the support for it. We added another notched cross member horizontally to support when the fold was in the coro- there's a lot of weight here, so it needed it. We ran 2 2x12's attached to the platform up, added blocks and the bottom part rests on that. Then we used C clamps and a few screws to hold the top part of the pumpkin to it.

    eeek you did a fantastic job with the framing. I really like the way you made the support for the back. Good job!

    Thank you! I am very happy with it. It's funny how much we've changed the design since we got involved in this. I am just happy to see it's (finally!) coming together!

    I am wondering if anyone has done any sequencing for the pumpkin and chorus to a more modern song. I have seen several done for the quartet monsters but not so much for the pumpkins. I can appreciate the additional songs David has placed on his website...of which I will be purchasing....but I like the fun of the Party Rock, Boom Boom Pow, and the like.

    If you look over on page 2 of the sequences for pumpkins on his site, Howlin' For You is pretty modern. Ha!

    I do happen to know he'll have a few more very soon. We looked at doing boom boom pow, but it has so many voices that just one face makes it tough. We'll check out party rock!

    While not all these are newer, we did add some additional sequences this week:

    Howlin' For You (The Black Keys)
    Hungry like the wolf
    Cantina Band - Star Wars
    Bow Wow Wow
    Superstition
    People are Strange

    Unpacked my big pumpkin and got him all set up. Happy to report all lights working! Friday I will unpack the smaller ones place them and finish my set up. I am so glad I took the time and extra money to pack it up properly. How is everyone's going? When will you start your show?
    I have a few new sequences in my show this year. I am excited to see it set up and running. I was able to get some more modern sequences. Jim and Vicky Anderson from http://mrtoomanychristmasdecorationsguy.com were able to adapt their monster sequences to the singing pumpkin and chorus for me. They did party rock by LMFAO, Sexy and I know it by LMFAO, and Itsy Bitsy Spider by Joey Deluxe. Just a fantastic job and great people to work with. They will make these available for purchase.
    Still wanting to get a few additional sequences from David too.
    Can anyone give me tips on videoing the show? I tried it last year with my cannon camera but it was horrible.
