    As eluded to last week we did manage to get a small supply of TV Guide posters with Kevin and Angela on the cover. These are extremely limited and very very hard to get as they are sent to retailers then destroyed (criminal huh!!!) so we are indeed fortunate to get a supply from TV Guide for distribution. The posters are MINT but come folded. These are US$5 each BUT we will ship these FREE for you in a magazine order.
  • Heart Throb Calendars
    It seems Kevin has agreed to appear in the National Heart Foundation calendar (2001) called Heart Throbs. We understand he is Mr December. Its a celebrity calendar issued to improve heart health in New Zealand and has New Zealand Celebs with their own heart throbs as its theme. Kevins heart throb is a PIG!!! He said he was going to pose with a sheep but didn't think he could stand all the jokes........ (and a pig is better????) We have a supply of these calendars ( arriving tomorrow) from the NZ Heart foundation and will immediately scan these and load them to a web site for you. They tell me Kevin is on the outside cover of the calendar as well as Mr December. The proceeds of this calendar go to the National Heart Foundation to assist heart health in NZ. The calendars will be US$14.95 + shipping. The calendar is full-sized 12" x 12". Again shipping is US$5 and each second calendar we will ship free. A scan of the calender will be up on the Kiwi Attic web site tomorrow

Aussie Xena News

  • I have to wonder about Channel 10 and their programming department after reading the latest letter from them. They still think the show is for kids. Hercules was for kids. Xena was NEVER for kids - at least I wouldn't show it to my kids if I had any. David Mott who is in charge of programming has blamed the producers as well.

  • The gang at New Xenaland are giving Xenites a virtual tour of the locations XWP has shown in Seasons 1 - 5. The following is from Liz:
    Come and see where they filmed such classic scenes as Xena and Callisto face off in the meadow in Sacrifice (gee was it 1 or 2?), the creek where Boadicea, Pao Ssu, Callisto, Borias and many more people slaughtered innocent bystanders. Thelonius's finest work to date - he must have worn out a dozen pairs of tramping boots getting these pics.

  • I'm not sure where this bit of news goes but here it is. Xena has been cloned <g>
    oink oink alalalalallalalala
    It seems some enterprising scientist has gone when no one has gone before and cloned a pig and the little oinker is called Xena. The little piglet has a dark coat but there are rumours it has blue eyes (sorry couldn't resist). You can find out more on http://news.excite.com/news/r/000816/14/science-pigs
  • Speaking of animals called Xena...the Wedge Tail Eagle that was last seen flying the coup from Taronga Zoo in Sydney has escaped into the wilds and is on the run..er..on the fly somewhere. It hasn't been seen in a long time..I guess Xena the Eagle isn't going to land any time soon...

And now for something a little bit more serious <g

    The Dutch Hercules/Xena fan club just published the second newsletter of this year. It includes an exclusive set report, an interview with RJ Stewart (excerpts were published here - click here to read), an interview with Missy Good, Lucia's Little Adventures and other articles.

 

  • The following is from Bookdaft about the Dark Horse Xena Comic:

    Some of you may be aware that Dark Horse will be canceling the comic  XENA: WARRIOR PRINCESS with the fourteenth issue. I had promised I  would report back the reason the comic is being canceled. Frankly,  the problem appears to be low sales, especially in the last 3 months,  coupled with a high licensing fee. Dark Horse has tried several  options to reduce their costs or increase their revenue, including   negotiating a reduction in the fee, but nothing has worked so far.

    The Xena 2001 Calendar has gone down to New Zealand to Lucy and Renee for approval. It contains sand and surf, mysterious eyes, boating, dancing girls, photographer Renee, a "wet" month, one very leggy Kiwi, blood on the hands and in the soul, and something for the Ares' fans. My favorites are February (a Xena and Gabrielle pose that should be made into a statue) and the last photo in the calendar which is a shot of Xena that just grabbed my heart from the moment I saw it.

This isn't Xena related but it's a way cool book!
