Holiday Greeting Written with the Flame!

Today I was sent this amazing screen shot! This guy actually took the time out of his Christmas day to write a little holiday greeting in the Sonic Lighter Ignition Map!

If you want to find it for yourself check out the Sonic Lighter Ignition Map, and zoom in on Pasadena, California USA. If you don't know where Pasadena is, it is in the North Eastern part of Los Angeles, California. Actually just zooming in on Los Angeles you will see a spot with more lights than most spots and that will be it!

Enjoy, and Happy Holidays!

Week 1 of the Contest! What a Week!

The First week of the Contest has come and gone! The early entries have been great. There are definitely some colorful examples of the expressive capabilities of the Ocarina. Here are a couple Smule favorites to keep your creativity flowing.

My personal favorite so far was posted just this morning! This guy is working extremely hard to earn his keep with the Ocarina as his tool.

Well this is also my favorite so far. Watch this video and be struck with a little bit of pop culture you never thought possible with a nose flute.

And here's another wonderfully creative video. It seems like the Canadians are ahead in this Contest. Well it's not the Olympics, but the guy playing in the Snow is a Maple Leaf as well!

Thanks to everyone who has entered so far and I hope to see some more videos pushing the boundaries of what is possible!

Rockarina ON!
