    Photography Fair

    So I thought... We have a great music thread, random topic thread and various lava/glitter/fiber/rain/plasma/wave/motion image threads. I think we need one to support general photography, unique images and moving pictures (e.g. gifs and other things that move). Maybe it will be a quiet thread maybe it will get rowdy. I could be talking to myself here! Post images that move you, excite you, make you laugh maybe even cry! Express with imagery!Continue

    Seeking base for 20 oz. globe...

    Started by Mmm... in Buy/Sell/Trade Zone yesterday. 0 Replies

    Does anyone here have a spare Lava brand base for a 20 oz. globe that they'd like to unload? It's just for a project so I am not at all concerned about the color, finish or general condition, provided, of course, that the base can safely hold a 20 oz. globe upright and that it functions properly. I can't use anything that requires rewiring, but would gladly accept a cast off with cosmetic flaws like dings, scratches, botched paint job and the like. Not at all interested in any valuable…Continue

    My new 40 year old Century!

    Started by ChuckM in Problems & Questions. Last reply by Mmm... on Tuesday. 11 Replies

    I bought this Century.. it is a bit cloudy but the flow seems real nice and there are no bubbles. I plan on trying what I can to clear it. I am going to cycle first... I may try Loren's method if that doesn't work (the fog juice and glycerin method). I doubt I will take it to the filtration step since I don't want to spend a fortune on a filter... that will be my limit!I didn't realize until it showed that it has a birthday this month. The cap says March 1974!I started cycling and only realized…Continue

    How stupid do you have to be.......

    The upside is I scored a fairly rare 52oz lava plasma lamp off ebay and I only spent about $28 shipped.On the downside, the seller took a long time to ship it and I was beginning to wonder if I'd ever receive it at all.  It arrived today and the lamp was in good shape and works well, but the idiot used the original box as the shipping container!  I was able to peel most of the tape and labels off without too much damage to the box label.  The seller also wrote on the box with a permanent…Continue

    Contacted Mathmos for replacement of bottle. They do not ship to South Africa or Botswana. What is wrong with these guys? Any of you dealt with them before?

    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…

    As of December, I no longer have a vehicle so aside from getting to and from work, I don't get out too much anymore. Lack of transportation has prevented me from getting what I need at the hardware store to make my first lamp... but that goo kit…
