The First Annual OG Halloween Poetry Contest

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.

Do We Want Widgets?

I've had a few people ask for a feature to find out who's online at the moment. The only way to do it is to scroll through the members list and look, but this takes time. So I just loaded that little box on the right, appropriately called "Who's Online". Pretty cool, huh? You ask, and I shall deliver - if the stars align and I know how to... ;-)

There's another widget out there called chat that I can install. My only hesitation is that widgets slow down the loading of our Main page.…

New Chrome Lava Lamps - Under Our Radar

chrome lava lamp bases

So why didn't anyone tell us that LavaWorld was about to come out with a new line of chrome lava lamps? As Dr.WHAT? pointed out, the release of the new line somehow slipped under our collective radar. How'd 'dat happen?!? Unlike other new product releases by LW, this time there was no press release which seems particulraly strange considering these lamps are among the…

Why a new site?

Welcome to the new Oozing Goo! For the past 2 months, I've been secretly working on a new community version of OG.

Why a new site? Because OG is truly a community; There are so many great lava lamp devotees in this group that can share far more info in this revamped site. Every member can have your own page, right here at OG, where you can share pictures, write a blog, start a group, add friends and much more.

Take a look around and enjoy!

Hope you like…
