One of my favorite things from my childhood and the only thing in the World that can make you feel like you are on drugs without taking drugs. That and listening to Radiohead. It’s one of the few hippie propaganda that has merged over into the regular mainstream. You don’t have to be smoking the good herb to truly enjoy the bubbly chaos that is a lava lamp. There’s something to be said for the way that brightly colored blobs floating in a brightly lit, unimaginable liquid substance, disperse like molecules. I can literally stare at a lava lamp longer than I can watch an episode of “John and Kate plus Eight, or Desperate Housewives. It’s relaxing, it’s fantastic, and if you never had one get one, even if it’s just a cheap ass keychain version. There are few things in life that make sense, but when staring into the voidless wonder that is a lava lamp, life just makes sense.
