Oozing Goo - The Lava Lamp Syndicate

 I finally got around to uploading some new lava lamp TV  features. The first video has never been seen before except on Chicago TV back in 1991. This is a show called "Wild Chicago" and was shot in early to mid 1991. The video is a tour of the factory on Keystone Ave by  "Dr Lava" who was a member on the original Oozinggoo website. He was the CEO for 10 years and was behind all the different color combo lamps and wave machines from the 90s.

 There is still one more missing episode from this show shot in the mid 90s at the Dickens Ave. address.... I will find it one day.

 

This video is also new ( for me ) not sure if this has been seen before from a show called "Curious and Unusual Deaths" . This video covers the infamous incident when guy put his lava lamp on the stove to heat it up faster and blew the lamp up and killed himself. The expressions of the guy are pretty funny... whoa man

 

I have posted these videos before but figured I would repost for newer members who may have not seen them.

  This video I would guess is from the late 90s, Marcia Marcia Marcia...

 

 

Another HGTV show from late 90s or early 2000.

 

 

And finally a show called "Deconstructed" if you want to know why or how a lamp works...

 

 

   Enjoy

the '91 video you posted from "wild chicago' was shot during such a great time for LL.  thanks for posting these.

Whoa, that first video is funny, but in a weird way. Shot in such an odd style. 

Thanks for sharing Jim!

Thank you for sharing these great videos, LampHead.  I'm a newbie, and was fascinated, and horrified by the "stove" incident!  Ouch!    Loved the guy popping the top on a globe in the last video.  I have never gotten up the nerve to filter a few of mine because I am not sure how to get the cap off.  He just popped it right off.  Was that a nail bar?  EEKKK   

Love these vids!  The secret formula mentioned often here may not be so secret... I recently found out there is a local man who owns over 200 homemade lamps. 85 yr old. former employee of LL. Knows formula, blows glass, crazy designs. Even a 3 incher that flows. You can bet your a** I'm meeting him... soon. ;)

Oh Shucks, take me with you, Deb!!!!
