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.

The old timers may remember the Christmas Poetry Contest we ran for a few years back in 1999, 2000 and 2001. Well, it's time to dust off that Thesaurus! Let's have a little fun competition for the best lava lamp related poem or short story honoring this year's Hollow's Eve.

No fees, but alas no prizes. Do this because you are creative and you like to beat people to the ground with your superior linguistic technique.… Continue

hey good afternooon to you too. been checking out this awesome site and finally created a profile.  I have an original aristocrat 16.5 inch tall, red lava clear liquid, original box model 1126. It was my parents and now I have it. It has a cracked gold top and some liquid has evaporated out, so looking for a smart way to just add the clear liquid and reseal the top if I can figure it out. I love watching the red lava, awesome flow, and brings back childhood memories. The lamp was put away for a real long time and didn't get used much. Somewhere along the line it must have been bumped or something, not sure what material the top is made out of.

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
