"Thanks for that, Mark! I had no idea. Great story about selling lamps on-line back in the day. I remember visiting this site back in the late 90's but never actually registered until 2009. Thanks again for keeping it going through the years!"

Night of the Hunter

This is a group for those who have an interest in the so-called Hunter lava lamps named after their founder, Mr John Edward Hunter who attempted a patent on his Sata-Lite model in c. 1970. Later version was called the Sparkle-Lite using glittery strands in the liquid. They came in various designs but more or less one size and with only one bottle type but numerous colour combos in both wax and sparkly strands to glitter.

Profile Information

Something Interesting About Me:
I started OG in '97 to share information about lava lamps and meet others that share my passion for these funky creations. I'm married and a father of 2. We run a Silver Century in our house all the time, and I bring other lamps out from the boxes from time to time (but I'm scared of my kids sticky fingers!)
Where I Live:
Beautiful Albuquerque
My First Lava Lamp was:
It wasn't really mine, but my older brother got a big Century (red/yellow) from some chicks that digged him in high school - this was like '83 or something - Anyway, I kinda took it over. I have no idea where that lamp is now, I bet my brother sold it in an antique/ collectable booth he runs.

Thanks for the comment and gift. Apologies for the delays. My one set of servers ended up getting DDoS very hard and had to change datacenters!

Glad to be here.

If you need a hand with anything computer wise, I would be glad to (my github: https://github.com/joeswhite).

You should consider cryptocurrency donations! I'd donate
