Oozing Goo - The Lava Lamp Syndicate

Found oozinggoo.com when I was looking for ways to repair the Grande I picked up at CostCo a few years ago.  It's one of the Chinese made ones that has gone extremely cloudy and ceased to flow (going to try replacing the fluid one of these weekends). 

It was here that I found out about really big Lava lamps.  I was bowled over by videos of the  Colossus lamps and really want to see if I could get one, I couldn't find them available anywhere so I wrote LavaLite.  I wanted to let this group know what I got this from Lava Lite today:

We have a special promo on the Colossus for serious buyers.   This will be the last time the Colossus will be seen.

Please see attached promo sheet with pricing included.

If you are interested please contact on my direct line at 630-496-6663.

 

Best regards,

Sadly these prices are outside of my discretionary funds, even though they include shipping.  I post it in hopes that someone here may be interested.

Hmmmmmm  I just checked the charge status on my debit card for my Colossus purchase and the "Pending" charge is gone completely.  I don't know if this means that LL has made an error and forgotten my order or it might be that the "Pending" status can only go on so long and then the bank drops it automatically.  I hope that's the case and my order has been set aside at LL for me.  It definitely appears that no matter what the problem no Colossus has shipped yet for me.  I emailed S.M. this morning though to see what's up.  I know she probably won't answer 'til tomorrow. I will let you guys know what's up when I get a reply.

Mine is still pending, but I ordered last Wednesday, so it just may not have disappeared yet.  I will keep an eye  on it.

I just ordered mine this morning. :) They said it would get here probably by Saturday. :)

I wound up getting the blue/yellow. It was really hard to decide between that and the clear/red!

Just ordered my Colossus. I got what I originally wanted. The black granite base with clear/black globe. Susan said after receiving my email that she found 2 more of the black bases and had only 2 of the clear/black left. I was originally concerned that the clears may be hazy but she assured me that this color was selling the most and people that purchased were very pleased with the clarity. *fingers crossed* I know the blacks run a bit darker but figured I didn't want a 250 watt bulb lighting up the room anyway so went with it. I also ordered the table.

As of today there are 29 lamps left of 60. All colors still available. 1 table. And the delay in shipping was due to freezing temps so all orders were held back 3-4 days.

Well mine came today driver helped me get it in house and even took pallet away but opened up box with the globe it had about 4 inches of slush at top so leaving it sit wont touch it now for 24 hours and hoping it will be ok.

Yep looks good so far shined a light through it looks clear it is a blue yellow but yea had me nervous.

Here is the email I received this morning at 11:30 A.M.

Yes, I do have some Colossus Lamps left.

We have all the colors per the attached sell sheet.

There are only 2 left of the Black and Clear

Bases we have Silver

In Faux Finishes 2 Black Granite, 1 Marble which is very Light Beige and Burl Wood

A head's up to all of those who ordered a table.  You may be missing a key piece (I was).  There should be a metal ring that sits on the top of the base that helps support the table.  Without out, the table has nothing to sit on and will slide onwards down the base, as the inner opening of the table is wider that the width of the top of the base.  I have already reached out to Susan who opened a table and confirmed my summary above.  She is reaching out to their supplier.

Now back to your regularly scheduled grumbling over when you might receive your Colossus...

That sucks, Jim...I hope they can fix that for you.

As for me, I know it was a simple mistake. Yes, it sucks that she didn't check for me when I asked, but oh well. The marble base should look nice too. :)

I called and left an email for her, but if the shipment went out today, I doubt she had a chance to do anything about it.

yep, reminds me of that cheesy 70s paneling everyone had in their basement high school rooms...I hide mine behind Pink Floyd posters :)

I don't like the wood finish at all. :( I'm not saying it's ugly or anything, just not my style. I want marble, or unfinished. I also think I may have changed my mind about the blue/yellow. I'll have to wait and see tomorrow morning!
