Good example code for RGB LED strip lights for a party?

New to the arduino world, powered up my first project today. Woop woop!

Using a uno to drive 8 x [u]analog[/u] RGB LED strips. Currently uses the code from this project:

We're having a party at ours this weekend and I plan to hang vertically the 8 led strips across the width of the wall.

After some code more suited to a party atmosphere? I'm sure there must be some out there, I must be looking in the wrong places.

Any help would be awesome. Thanks!

Fast led is a better idee?????

Discovered the Arduino Light Animation (ALA) page. Should be able to make something good from that. Still open to suggestions though

Ok... I've decided I would like something along the lines of this:

Code for which is posted in this thread:

It works on my setup.... but not like it should. I don't suppose someone could help me identify a portion of code that I can insert within the code that I had previously with the original mainboard design.

Would be greatly appreciated!
