I was contacted by a great friend today, who shared the distressing news that some "scumbag yuppies" had bought his building and he was being kicked out of his longtime apartment (Chicago). As a result, he will need to unload a significant number of lamps, parts, etc. Exact amount of goodies TBD, but should have a better idea this weekend.I have volunteered my basement as a storage option, so I sense the majority of the goods will be in possession. I told him that me and my Tacoma are at his…Continue
After months of research and testing, I have discovered how to make fast glitter liquid!** Here are the latest pictures: http://oozinggoo.ning.com/photo/albums/kirk-s-magic-glitter-lamps **Here is an early video:My formula is faster (and I think better) than the liquid and glitter in the vintage fast glitter lamps - including the Wizards.I have been testing the performance of this “magic” liquid for over a month…Continue
Wonder if anyone has thought about this before... this is what got me started on this.Some lamp combos are just plain dark. it becomes very obvious when you have one sitting next to another brighter lamp.Case in point. I have a 17" geometric near a 52 oz blue/white. The Geometric just pops out crystal clear. I know its a clear fluid inside a tinted glass bottle.

I have been enjoying collecting this Colormax series very much, they seem to flow very well for China made and they are pretty darn cool too.

As per Vox an OG member's suggestion, Izzy soda bottle caps work great, believe it or not!!! They twist off the soda and although they don't twist on the globe due to the globe not being threaded, you push it on good and I even turned my globes filled upside down and they didn't leak. Easy, short term fix for those that do not have a bench capper and need a quick fix. Also you can take them off and on again, but I would think after a few times, they may start to leak. So I bought 10 and…Continue
I've had a remarkable year where Lava Lamps are concerned. I had been looking for an Imperial for a good while and thinking I might never find one. Sure, I knew where there are five or so, but they are in the hands of people who love them. I…Continue
I finally got to the hardware store. I purchased a cord with a socket attached and came to find no 40 watt bulbs fit the size socket said cord came stock with. Branching out of my comfort zone, I bought a ceramic light mounting base and decided…Continue
