    Broken Fluidium

    This happened about two weeks ago. A very very small few of you have already read this. I have decided to share it with the community.I have seen pics on here that have made me cringe..... Lamps ontop of speakers. This lamp was near a speaker, and still paid the price of admission.From Aug. 7th:Friday evening was a Fluidium nightmare. I had a couple of friends over, one of them was a good friend's twin borther who I have known for years, but has never been to my place. As the evening progressed…Continue

    Lamps to sell

    Let me preface this thread by letting you know I am beyond swamped at work. I will likely be unable to ship any lamps until after the US Presidential election in November.Many have inquired about lamps and I have largely blown you off. Its nothing personal, my love of lava isn't what it once was and I have just been too damn busy.Reece is first up if Reece is still interested in the Icon trade we discussed.I know Voxul was interested in either an Astro or a Telstar.GT was interested in either…Continue

    Weird and overpriced lamps Formerly "Contest: who can find the most overpriced lamp"

    *editAny lamp is fair game now, not just the beatles and harley lamps. This thread has grown far beyond my expectations! 0.0I really dont understand why these are always listed for ridiculous amounts. I see them all the time for $100 buy it now. I have a harley lamp and I want to sell it because I dont like it. Someone locally tried to sell me a beatles lamp for $100. Are these people nuts? Why do they all seem to list them for stupidly high prices?Anyways I thought it would be fun to see who…Continue

    The Lava Collector's Edition

    Started by Drew in Collecting. Last reply by Drew 11 hours ago. 1 Reply

    There are a couple new Colormax 17 inchers now at Spencer Gifts stores that I recently picked up titled- "Alien" & "Psychedelic" (love them). Anyway in the packaging was a flyer advertising some upcoming limited edition 17" models that would be Spencer's exclusives.  I asked around at a few of my Spencer's locations and they have no idea what I am talking about (I showed them the flyer), yet according to the flyer the first one was supposed to be released at the beginning of this month…Continue

    Photography Fair

    Started by VOXul in Off Topic. Last reply by VOXul yesterday. 627 Replies

    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

    The Blues Magoos and their Psyche-De-Lites!

    Started by Jonas Clark-Elliott in General Goo. Last reply by Claude J yesterday. 7 Replies

    For readers who don't know, the Blues Magoos were one of the first 60s bands to refer to themselves as "psychedelic." And by the late 60s, the management they got began marketing them aggressively using that term. But they also managed, somehow, to have an exclusive Lava Lite, sold only to their fan club - and, stranger still, got the Lava Lite name to NOT be associated with it whatsoever! (See attached images)The fan club lamps, called the Psyche-De-Lite, had a Consort bottle, a wide, conical…Continue

    Rare Kenny Ceramic Prototype?

    Started by Carrie in Collecting. Last reply by Claude J on Tuesday. 6 Replies

    I acquired a bong about 15yrs ago and had decided today to look it up. What I came across for it was only on this site cause another member had posted about one as well. I'm just curious if I have the same thing. Is my Kenny also a rare prototype that was sent to have been a lava lamp? Thanks for your time.

    Shipping Instructions to Send Sellers

    Posted by Deb on April 11, 2016 at 12:04am 0 Comments

    Just reposting instructions I like to send sellers when I purchase a lamp that's traveling via USPS etc. I'm posting as originally written by Weebotech. I modify it a bit as per my lamp situation.

    I just did a search here to copy it again…
