How to Post a BLOG

Okay, I've been waiting for someone, anyone to instruct folks on how to Start a Discussion/thread, instead of posting a Blog...Since our Gooey front page STILL has blog posts from members who don't know any better....

Starting a Discussion/thread is the way to connect with other members about a topic. A THREAD can be about anything, usually pertaining to the site topic.When a member starts or…

I am also looking for a wave machine

Hey all,
I am a psychotherapist who would love to have one of those blue wave machines. I have looked on ebay and Amazon, and have had no luck. It sounds like they come up once in a while but didn't know if there is any place that sells them regularly! Thanks!

Nice surprise

Was going through my box of instruction manuals earlier looking for something when I came across the instructions for my Glitterbaby, my first ever Mathmos lamp. Why they are not in the box for the lamp I have no idea, had a flick through and I've got the receipt for when I bought it, was the 11th July 1998 and I paid £39.95, also enclosed is a small booklet showing some of the Mathmos range at the time including the Lunar, if only I had known then what I do now!

Very disapointed

Have just unpacked my new Mathmos Telstar lamp that arrived today and im very disapointed, not with the lamp itself thats all fine but it doesnt have a UK mains plug fitted but a two prong euro one! Im sure its a genuine mistake but until Mathmos confirm back to me that cutting off and replacing the plug wont affect the warranty i cant run the lamp :( and this is their most expensive lava lamp too! Very disapointed!

Lunar custom bottles

Well spoke to Mathmos today about some custom bottles for my Lunar, wasnt expecting anything as i have read on here that they wont be doing any more until the new year. Well amazingly they said yes no problem and i'll be able to have them with a couple of weeks, so my orders been placed and now i just have to wait! Really excited that i'll have them in time for christmas :) Maybe its down to the person you speak to so if anyone wants a custom Lunar bottle give them a ring and see what they say.

Mathmos, Poole, England

Gosh, is it really only a week since my trip to sunny Dorset and to the Mathmos factory in Poole? The folks we met there were really nice and friendly and even let us look around the place including where they fill the bottles!

I spotted a nice boxed Faze 2 lamp there but alas it was not for sale.

It was nice to see the permanent display of current products and my friend Paul and I even made a couple of purchases, Paul a nice replacement Astro bottle in Violet/Orange and I… Continue

Mathmos Vintage Lava Exhibition

Hi everyone, Mathmos here!

Many thanks to those of you who have responded to the requests for the use of your vintage Lava lamps for our exhibition. We just have one more thing to ask of you - if any of you have any lamps with packaging that you would like to lend us, please get in touch. We'd love to show each lamp with its original box if possible and as expected, these have been quite difficult to find.

A Touch of Lava


The Lava Lite Lamps of the 1990's will always live on in my heart forever.

Anyone live in Tennessee, North Georgia or North Carolina?

This is random and has nothing to do with lava, but my family and I are looking to relocate to the above area. I just wondered if anyone had any experience in these places or suggestions. We really want to move to the mountains and are looking for a somewhat mild climate. It's so hot in Oklahoma my lava lamps actually react weird during these summer months, even with air conditioning!

Evil VG...

I've been a bit harsh towards a couple folks lately... Like REALLY mean spirited, condesending, mocking...

just totally NOT the normal me. Yes, I'm sarcastic, blunt, crass & dirty minded... I can also be fiercely loyal, overcaring & overly enthusiastic! I guess where Lava's concerned, I should try to go with the flow. So, here's a public apology for past & future episodes of my full on Evil Tendencies... I hope they become fewer &… Continue

You people are a bad influence!

So, I'm sitting here watching a Grande, an Aristocrat & my new Dexter lamps beginning to flow. I began thinking this is the most Goo I've seen in 3 years... As much as I lived for the Oozing Goo community... way back when, I hadn't visited since my Husband's MS diagnosis in '06. I quit buying Lava, packed up all 52 lamps & moved us to my Momma's. I kept a few out, The Beatles ceramics, the Grandes... but I never turned them on. We adjusted to our 7 ft. by 20 ft. room, learned to live… Continue

Help identifying model and advice on repairs or new globe...

Hello all,

Thanks for the warm welcome. I have a "thrift store" special, that I need some help identifying and repair advice.

Sorry for the dark image...After viewing the examples in Martina's Vintage Lava Lamp Gallery, I believe it to be an Aristocrat(?). The date on the felt, under the base is September 01, 1969. Overall 16.5 inches tall, 5.5 wide base, on bottom where it contacts the table. The globe, by itself, measures 11.5 inches… Continue

shattered lava lamp

I had a lava lamp fall and shatter yesterday...apparently the liquid inside is a little toxic and can slightly irritate your skin...bummer.
