Oozing Goo - The Lava Lamp Syndicate

Hey, I was able to pick up one of these babies at the local BigLots for only $28.00 (they had 2 more there when I left)

I thought it was a deal- especially since I did not have to have it shipped to me only to be ruined in transit, and I was also able to inspect it at the store to insure it was not cloudy before purchase. I am running it now- and even though it is China made, it flows pretty well- not nearly as good as a 90's globe, but it flows very favorably indeed. Only time will tell if it will keep it up- the display model at BigLots was totally screwed- the lava looked like puke (not white anymore and had dark spots in it) and the spring inside was broken and rusty looking, probably a product of the severe overwork of a display unit, but I doubt that because the lamps weren't even at this BigLots when I was there about 4 months ago. Anyway, I only bought it for the base- didn't have much faith in the globe from the get go, so to this point I have been pleasantly surprised.

It's totally tacky, but I love it just the same. I really hope they release some of those resin models they have pictured on the web-site, I would like some of those for sure, if even only for the bases and caps (I don't mind pitching the globes if they are crap), probably the only way I would buy anything from their triffling asses right now anyway.
