Oozing Goo - The Lava Lamp Syndicate

A newer photograph of my workdesk. At left is a Lego tower "house" surrounding a glitter lamp - not coincidentally, one advertising a mortgage company, with house-shaped glitters. In the upper portion is a second lamp, and a Lego garden is visible through windows. Light emits from small openings higher up, and all heat is shunted up the chimney to spin the vane in the top. A lot of fun to build, but just try changing the bulbs!

No, no, *I* didn't like the weird stripey front. There were a lot of wonky things I did with the colors as I got low on bricks. When I rebuilt it during a bulb change, it got streamlined. Next rebuild is going to make bulb changing easier - I'm going to cut some sort of door in the lamp's base, probably, to get at that bulb, and put a Lego house door up top so I can back that socket out. The earlier version of the house, before I added a glitter lamp, had only one light, and it was set up that way: the socket clipped in place, and could be pulled out through a door on the back.

My comment wasn't directed at how the house looked...I hoped you wouldn't think that. :p I liked it that way!

The older incarnation of it, anyway. It's been mostly rebuilt since then and the colors on the lower part have gone from silly stripes to solid blocks.

No...no, I definitely shouldn't.

My collection space is indeed very, very full. I have started consolidating items on the wall to make more room, and anything flat has migrated to the sloped ceiling.
