If you mean motion backgrounds then look here:

I think it might be Mato77's Sound wave3

If you mean MM regular themes then I'm not sure.

I am trying to find a particular theme I saw it on a youtube video, a thunderstorm, with some rock music as background. Any ideas?

I fixed his post hehe, basically I told him I didn't want you to feel obligated to post it here since you also run Tortuga-Cove, etc.

I don't mind posting the news as time permits... it's what I do daily here pretty much!
