Oozing Goo - The Lava Lamp Syndicate

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 disposal all weekend.

This thread is meant as a placeholder and head's up.  Start licking your chops and fine tuning your wishlists.

To keep things real... I am not a thrift shop.  Don't expect $5 Centuries and $20 Giants.  My friend (and fellow Oozing Gooer) is a connoisseur of fine motion lamps and I will be looking out for him.  Those who have transacted with me should know how I operate though.  Admittedly a little slow to get items shipped, but fully transparent in conducting transactions and borderline psycho in terms of packaging lamps.

I will not alloow him to sell everything as he has a collection that I bow down to.  To wet your appetite, he does have a handful of Colossi (yes, as in 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5).  Numerous Goo Kit customs, double-digit Grandes/Giants, etc.

The official sales thread is actually a sales album, and can be located here:  Black German Shepherd Sale

Sorry to hear Jim :( I hope your next adventure pans out to be better than the last!

Jim....sorry to hear the news. But I agree with your assessment....it will be better long term...as we discussed many times before you were wore out with that place and the commute. I have been in this same position on multiple occasions and came out the other end in an even better place once the smoke cleared.

Jim, my husband was laid off from a job that he worked 22 years at one of our casinos in Atlantic City.  Although it was definitely a transition, that was more then 2 years ago and we have learned to move on.  You just have to take one day at a time and ride life's setbacks out!!  I still feel like I take 1 step forward and 3 steps back, but I guess that's why they call it life.  My husband was just laid off from a seasonal position and was told he can't collect any unemployment benefits until November.  They just shut all of our cell phones off for nonpayment.  No pity party because he just found a new job today and starts Friday!!!  So everything works out for a reason.  Heck, I hated answering that darn cell phone anyway!!  haaahaaa!!  Living in a seasonal/tourist town has it's set backs for sure.  He also had about an 1 1/2 hour commute each way which was killing us in gas, tolls and wear and tear on our brand new vehicle so.........stay strong Jim!!!

There will be better times ahead, Jim.  Stay positive.

Well hang in there...  I've been in the same position.  I worked IT for a company

for 15 years, making 50k, and one day the Sheriff showed up and escorted everyone

out.  They locked and sealed the building for it's assets (guess they owed someone

some money)

You'll find something and be more happy.

Holy crap!  While the company's financial performance was cited as the reason for my departure, they didn't have it nearly that bad.  They were still able to provide me with a good severance package.
