That top looks familiar <g>

Lucy was on the Holmes Show in NZ yesterday discussing the change in the name for The Starship Hospital. It was originally going to be renamed Auckland City Hospital Children's Services. The board did a backflip after a huge backlash from people including Lucy. They are now putting back the name Starship into the name of the hospital but now calling it The Starship Children's Department (!!!).

Xena Books

I've received 4 books from the publishers of the Xena Warrior Princess The Complete Illustrated Companion to give away in a competition.

Update: All books have been won (talk about quick)

Okay two questions to win the books were:

Which episodes are the quotes from and who uttered them?

"Where did you steal that dress? Maybe someday you can go back for the rest of it." (Caeser to Xena in Destiny)


"So do you want to live here in squalor or ride to glory with me?"
(Xena to Borias in The Last of the Centaurs"

Thanks to everyone who participated!

Little Xena and Little Gabrielle Adventures

Xenaverse News

For all those people who liked WebBlogs (and for those that don't know what they are here is the introduction to it: Blogger offers you instant communication power by letting you post your thoughts to the web whenever the urge strikes).

What does this have to with Xena? Well a few Xenites have decided to create a Xena Blogger.

They're doing the entire X:WP experience from ep one all the way through to the end. Xena has a webblog, and Gabrielle has one.  At the end of each entry, there's a place where secondary characters (who are part of the blog team) can enter their comments. So far they are up to Hooves & Harlots and you can access the previous episodes.

Warrior...Princess...Blogger  And here's Gabrielle's: http://gabrielle.trobairitz.net/

It's a real hoot! Go check it out.

Xena Merchandise

The following is from Cindy from www.forevaxena.com 

This issue of MAIN Magazine originally came out in April 1996 and features flip-covers of Xena (on side A) and Magneto (on side B).

This was the first appearance of Xena in the hobby and pre-dates the Topps comic, the action figures, and the various card sets. In fact, it was because of this issue that Xena's license reached the hobby world.

A 2-page spread of Xena with facts about the show and actress highlight the issue, along with features on: Rich Buckler (silver age Marvel star artist), Antarctic Press and their Warrior Nun, a sexy CyberForce centerfold, Batman's 35th anniversary, and Marvel/DC's Amalgam line.

This issue comes factory sealed from 1996 with original promotional trading cards. Every issue came with a promo card from the Highlander game as well as random cards from the X-Men set, the Marvel set from Fleer, and others.

This issue is very RARE and was much sought after by Xena and Highlander collectors. This issue outsold Wizard for that month.

The writer/inker of this issue, Mr. Rusty Gilligan, has graciously offered both signed and unsigned copies of this issue for sale! He is a pro inker whose credits include work at Marvel, DC and the original Heavy Metal movie (1981).

Unsigned copies are $4 and signed by Rusty is $6 (a fantastic price!).  Shipping for up to 3 mags in the US, Mexico and Canada is $2; International orders shipping is $4 (for up to 2 mags).  If anyone wants to order a bigger bulk of them, they may contact me directly for shipping costs at forevaxena@forevaxena.com

Lucy News

It seems Lucy has been sightseeing in Singapore according to yesterday's Singapore newspaper. Singapore is currently battling (with the rest of the world) the outbreak of the severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS). The transcript is from Karen on the merwolfpack list:

The Straits Times, Life section, page 2. - 9 April 2003
"Xena braved SARS: Singapore may now be SARS city, but it did not stop New Zealand actress Lucy Lawless from seeing the sights here last weekend. The Xena star was here with daughter Daisy Bit on Friday and Saturday en route to her hometown in Auckland. The Warrior Princess may be dead, but Lawless will return to TV to present a five-part documentary on Discovery Channel called Warrior Women."

A few years ago Lucy leant her voice to the Simpsons show in the episode "Tree House of Horror". Word is out now that there will be a Xena/Lucy action figure in the Simpson range. I received this note about the action figure:

Playmates is a company who produce the "Simpsons" collectible figurines. When Lucy Lawess first appeared on the Simpsons in a Halloween episode many fans including myself requested that Playmates make an action figure of Lucy Lawless as the cartoon Xena. And playmates have agreed! To be released in August/September 2003 is "The Collector's Lair" a rather big playset based on the scene from the episode where Bart and Lisa attempt to rescue Lucy Lawless from "The Collector". It will include figures of The Comic Book Guy as "The Collector", Lisa Simpson as "Clobber Girl", Bary Simpson as "Stretch Dude" and of course Lucy Lawless as herself in her Xena outfit. Playmates also usually make these things with voice interaction, so the Lucy Lawless figure may also feature recordings of some of her lines from this episode. It is apparently some sort of exclusive playset that will only be released to certain retailers, which may mean it will be hard to get (especially in Australia) and will probably be pretty costly. At the moment there is only concept art available at some of the Simpson action figure sites.
Many thanks to Adam for the information

  • Added transcript from Ireland on Sunday newspaper on "Grainne Mhaol"  (Grace O'Malley)
  • Updated two new links for information on Grace O'Malley the Pirate Queen
  • Added information about books available on Lozen, Apache Warrior (one of the warrior women featured in the documentary:
    Book -
    Ghost Warrior Ghost Warrior by Lucia St. Clair Robson
    The heroine, Lozen, is a fierce Apache woman who would rather be a warrior than a wife, a departure from Apache conventions. Lozen can see enemies in the future, a skill that allows her to ride with the likes of Cochise, Geronimo, Mangas Coloradas and her brother, Victorio. One white man who escapes Lozen's wrath is Rafe Collins, a Shakespeare-reciting teamster who weaves in and out of this tale, offering the white man's perspective. Lozen and Rafe meet frequently, but a tender moment of hesitation always keeps them from slaughtering each other.
  • Added information about books available on Grace O'Malley - The Pirate Queen
    Book - The Pirate Queen by Emily Arnold McCully
    Born in 1530, Grania O'Malley took to the sea as a child, learning her father's trade of seafaring (and piracy) and saving his life in a battle with English buccaneers. She later married, had children, led her own ships, and built her own kingdom in Clew Bay. Captured and released by the English, she traveled to London, met Queen Elizabeth, and formed an alliance that granted Grania the right to her lands and "to defend the Crown with fire and sword." Rich with color and the effects of light on seascapes, landscapes, and people, the artwork makes the most of the story's dramatic content. Children intrigued by pirates will enjoy McCully's unusual picture book, which offers some insight into the history behind the legend and illuminates more than the life of Grania O'Malley.
    Book - Granuaile: The Life and Times of Grace O'Malley 1503-1603 by Anne Chambers
    Using state papers and manuscripts of the period, Anne Chambers reveals the woman behind the legend and presents one of history's most remarkable women against the turbulent political environment of her time. What emerges is a woman who challenges our predisposed sense of convention, who, over four hundred years ago, was one of the first women to break the mold and make a unique contribution to history
