I'm trying to catch up on all the gossip!

I've been super busy! Can you all literally basically summarize for me?

Nattyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy
:

Ray appears now and then, he is the same Ray we all know and love.

Zoom is here most days, and oddly seems less rebellious in his old age, but has a scary thing about Samurai Swords.

McCoy seems to have somehow got really really grumpy over the years and is in denial about how much he loves the place. He claims to look like a cross between Justin Bieber and Dan Haggerty these days.

Joshi pops in rarely, but has been noticed.

Huz is often here and is like some sort of wise owl.

Skinkie is also around and obviously still loves the place (we love you too Skinkie).

Alia occasionally pops by for a bit, first person I spoke to back when she was Captain Andy I think. Some quality banter there also.

Das Mole occasionally pops in, but refuses to tell us what that embarrassing thing was that he wanted to go back in time and change when he was 13.

Artisa is the new kid on the block, you two should hang out together, gossip about McCoy.

RemiO, Brighteyes and others have been seen. Alas still no sign of Carl

I'm here also of course and am taking all of the credit for breathing life into this place again. There's replies from at least 3-4 different members most days now.

Question Fatherland?!?

Roy has been building a garden shed art studio, but we keep sneaking in and redecorating the place. He really needs to get a door on it...

Thumbs up Pop tart art

He did that, yes.

I'm the one who painted the big red, white and blue mod circle on the outside wall and put up the giant 'The Who' poster on the inside. Also the bean bag chairs.

Post Seventies

*(Installs black lights and a quadraphonic sound system. Plays 'Dark Side of the Moon' and puts beads up over the still open doorway. Sets a lava lamp squarely in the middle of a glass coffee table.)*

I have one. The bulb is dead and I can't find a new one (since the wastefull incandescent lamps have been kinda banned EU-wide). My lavalamp never really...lava'd properly though, for some reason. Always was just one big lump going up and staying there.

Arrow 15 watts

I saw the exact same thing when I tried putting a 10 watt bulb in mine. It looked like an atomic mushroom cloud. In my case, I fixed it by going with the higher wattage.

Not sure what to do about the non incandescent thing. Kind of means the death of lava lamps, since the waste heat that incandescents put out is what makes the thing work.

Put it in front of the heater, perhaps?

No, it's really lava.

You can wash your hands with it.

*(Wonders if they sell 'lava' hand soap in Europe. Shrugs.)*

You can still buy lower powered incandescent bulbs! Try your local weird shop that sells all kinds of ****. Whatever you call that place.

Lightbulb Plastic

No...try Dollar Tree. I'm sure they still have them in stock.

Or you could go to WWW.LightBulbsDirect.com where they do have 15 watt A15 incandescent bulbs on sale for $1.99. I trust the German border guards won't arrest you for ordering banned lighting from disreputable countries...

I have doors on it now btw, Dropbox uploading is being an arse though, so bear with me for the update photos.

For the record, it would be lovely if just one post ever could stay on topic in here lol.

That'll never happen - it's the nature of the human mind! Thoughts attract other thoughts and eventually progress into something else entirely along with the discussion at hand! Like me trying to study layers of the abdomen only to somehow end up with my mind wandering to pokemon.
