  • FROM SWORDS TO SONGS - 30 August 2006
    Lucy Lawless - Exclusive to TheStarScoop.Com
    Lucy Lawless has returned. Back and blonde, she's armed for battle once again - with her voice. The new reality show, Celebrity Duets sees a slew of stars, including Lucy, face off in a duets competition that partners celebrities not known for singing, but who do actually have musical talent, with renowned artists. Lucy explains, "All the contestants can sing; they wouldn’t want to dishonor these singing legends by putting them with people who were just cast for their comedy value. I’m really honored to be amongst them."

Boston Herald - 29 August 2006

  • Not ‘Xena’-phobic: Ex-warrior princess Lawless changes tune for ‘Duets’
    Tuesday, August 29, 2006  Lucy Lawless has always had a free-fall approach to her career. ‘‘I’m addicted to free fall,” Lawless said during a recent phone interview. ‘‘I’ve flamed out horribly a number of times in life.”  But the former warrior princess is banking that her participation in ‘‘Celebrity Duets” (premiering tonight at 8 on WFXT, Ch. 25) won’t be one of those times.

  • Celebrity Duets: An Inside Look
    TV Guide Online

    You've seen them dance. You've seen them lose weight. You've even seen them ice-skate. Now it's time for celebrities to grab a mike and start singing. The contestants on Fox's Celebrity Duets will have a little help from well-known recording artists such as Clint Black, Macy Gray and Chaka Khan, so we're hoping the audience will be spared the torture of another William Hung. But with Simon Cowell wearing the executive-producer hat, anything is possible. click here to read more

Xena Planet News

Buying Land on Xena...

Speaking of Xena The Planet, someone selling an acre of land on Xena (the planet) on Ebay...what a cool gift to give all the Xena cast and crew...there own little patch of Planet Xena...check it out!

 

Xena Awarded "Dwarf Planet" Status

The International Astronomical Union (IAU) today downgraded the status of Pluto to that of a "dwarf planet," a designation that will also be applied to the spherical body discovered last year by California Institute of Technology planetary scientist Mike Brown and his colleagues....

The following paragraph in the article just made me laugh so much - we already knew that Gabrielle makes Xena "wobble" but it's now a scientific fact (well for Xena the Planet and her lovely moon Gabrielle)  <g>

Therefore, once the researchers figure out the distance between the moon and its parent, how fast the moon revolves its parent, and how much the moon makes Xena wobble, then they'll know how much Xena weighs.

Yeah, yeah I know, I'm easily amused....

Upcoming 10th Anniversary AUSXIP Art & Video Comp!

Hi folks,

As most of you are aware AUSXIP will turn 10 in December (that's what that nifty little countdown on your left is for <g> )  which is considered ancient in the stream of time for internet sites.

In honour of this event (and the fact I haven't gone totally nuts in the process) I am announcing an art and music video competition. There's some more neat stuff that will be happening that I will announce at a later date.

We have so much talent in this fandom - talent oozes out of the Xenaverse. So put that talent to use and create some artwork and music video.

All the artwork and videos will be displayed on ausxip and then get voted on by EVERYONE who visits from 1 December to 15 December 2006. The winners of the comp will get all sorts of goodies like autographed pictures, DVDs, pictures and whatever else I can come up with.

Rules (you know there are rules):

  • You have to create the artwork / video yourself

  • No nudity or excessive violent images

  • It has to be Xena, Lucy or Renee related

  • All entries will be reviewed before they are displayed

  • You can enter as many times as you like

Entries will close 1 December 2006 and I will put up a voting page for all the art and videos (hopefully there will be heaps to choose from). The winners will be announced 15 December 2006 on AUSXIP's 10th Anniversary!

So get to it and let those creative juices flow!

Please pass this on to any other list that may be interested.

Cheers

MaryD

    “Celebrity Duets” Is No Joke; Simon Cowell Comments (Exclusive Story)
    ...“Celebrity Duets,” FOX’s new show from executive producer Simon Cowell, is banking on the fact that enough viewers truly do want to see established celebrities conquer another realm of the entertainment world. According to Cowell, the eight celebrities competing on the show—Carly Patterson, Alfonso Ribiero, Lucy Lawless, Lea Thompson, Jai Rodriguez, Chris Jericho, Hal Sparks and Cheech Marin—had to survive multiple auditions, albeit not in front of the brutally honest “Idol” judge, to prove they truly have the potential to excel vocally.

  • Orlando Sentinal - 22 August 2006
    The show will pair non-singers (Lucy Lawless, Cheech Marin) with major singers (Patti LaBelle, Gladys Knight, Smokey Robinson). Cowell offers little advice to the non-singers. "Shut your eyes, hold your breath and hope for the best," he says. "This is going to be tough. It's hard enough when you sing in public when you're used to singing. Most of these people on this show aren't."
    Then there's the pressure of being paired with some of the greatest singers in popular music. "That's a nightmare," Cowell says.

August 21, 2006, Runnemede, NJ – Dynamite Entertainment released images and information today regarding XENA #4. Scheduled to ship in October, this issue continues the Warrior Princess’ legendary challenges in the “Contest Of Pantheons!” and concludes the opening storyline.

“This issue may mark the end of our opening story, but we have a lot of BIG things planned for Xena! After sending her to Hades in “Contest” it’s difficult to imagine what else we can throw at the Warrior Princess, but our team has designs of Herculean proportions,” stated Dynamite Entertainment. “John Layman and Fabiano Neves are creating the legendary (and fun) stories, so fans can rest assured that they know how to push our heroine to her limits… and beyond!”

  • Sci Fi’s Stargate SG-1 Said to Be Axed
    People close to the production of Stargate SG-1 said Sci Fi Channel canceled the series on the eve of its 200th episode, which aired last Friday night, making the show the first cable scripted series to reach such a milestone. The announcement came in sometime before cast, crew and executives gathered to celebrate the historic airing at a Saturday-evening bash held at the Pan Pacific Hotel in Vancouver, British Columbia, where the series is shot. Spinoff series Stargate Atlantis -- which also airs Friday nights on Sci Fi and shares producers and production facilities with the older SG-1 -- was said to be unaffected by the cancellation. Atlantis is currently in its third season.

    The year is 2043. For over one hundred years, the world has been ruled by Nazi tyranny. The Japanese are an acknowledged power within the Reich, but they concede the supreme leadership of the Fuehrer. The United States, because of its choice to remain isolated during the conflict that was World War II, is now an occupied territory of the Nazi regime. It is also home to the Resistance. This is the story of their fight for freedom.

And now here's the good news - 11 Pictures are available to download. #12 is being held back for a week or so because of something special being done to it by a certain someone <g>

Please be aware these pictures are being shown because of Edgar's generosity. Please drop Edgar a note of thanks. For those that may not know why Lucy took these pictures read on: - The Naked Eye Celebrity Benefit (the following information is from their website):

We've asked 150 celebrities & artists to shoot a disposable camera. Now we're auctioning off these cameras-before they're developed! You get the camera containing the unique mystery photos (& negatives!) from your favorite celebrity!

The money raised will go to gay and lesbian film organizations MIX NYC and The 19th NY Lesbian & Gay Experimental Film Festival.

Faces of the Fans Update

Hello everyone!

We are very proud to announce that, on June 19, the Canberra Xena Gang sent A$1,005.36 (one thousand and five Australian Dollars and thirty six cents) to the National Breast Cancer Foundation of Australia, from donations received on behalf of FOF, our Faces of The Fans fun-pack!!!!! The Xenaverse so totally RO'Cs !!! Then again… who didn’t already know that?!!!!<VBG>

As for our FOF II project, we are sad to say, it’s in a hiatus right now, not only for lack of submissions, but also for circumstances beyond our control - three Gang members are moving out of Canberra, so - needless to say - the Canberra Xena Gang is a little shaken right now <sniff sniff>. We thought of doing a FOF II anyway, if we had enough submissions - a cyberspace FOF II!!! each one doing her part of the job and then putting it all together sometime in the future (oh yeah, we are still planning meet ups, if not weekly as before, at least once a month or once every two months, whichever life allows us… distance will not break up the gang!) With that said, we are not discouraging submissions! Please keep them coming and we’ll see what we can do. I personally would like to have at least a fans/convention music vid ready by the end of the year, so that we can send it to Creation and hope they show it at the con, like they did this year. After all, what are the Conventions without the fans ???!!!

So, once again, a HUGE THANK YOU to all of you that made this possible with your submissions and orders!!! The Greater Good was once again served by the amazing power of the Xenaverse!!!!

The Canberra Xena Gang

PS: FOF 1 will always be available, so if anyone is interested in spending some fun moments reminiscing about the conventions, or taking a tour of Canberra with our very own “Xena” tour guide, or watching an episode re-enactment with X & G action figures, or taking a look at all the other FOF cool stuff, don’t be shy, just drop us a line!
Go to www.cxgang.com and get FOF'ed!!!

Lucy Camera Update

Edgar just informed me that the camera has arrived and was taken to the photo shop guy who has removed the casing intact (Lucy autographed the casing).

Next step will be processing the film - that will take a day or so (it's not at a 1 hour place...that film is way too valuable).

Lucy's pictures should be up Monday or Tuesday. Stay tuned.

On another note - I've been getting quite a few emails for Edgar which I have passed on. Let's just say Edgar is overwhelmed by all the thanks <g>

I'm not sorry for Edgar's discomfort <g>

10 August 2006



I just received the following message from Jennifer Mamula - I don't have any other news so based on this news Lynka has passed away. I'm so terribly saddened and my condolences to her partner Kathy, their families and friends.

It is with great sadness that I inform you of the passing of Linda Osborne AKA Lynka. She succumbed to cancer Tues. August 8, 2006. She leaves behind her partner of over 25 years, Kathy. Lynka loved the Xenaverse so much she started a web page for the writers of fan fiction and other enthusiasts of the show. That webpage, Amazon Trails, was her "baby" for many years. Her health had been deteriorating for some time, but Linda never gave up or stopped fighting. She exemplified the warrior she believed was in every woman.

Lynka's final message on her site reads:

Hello Great Xena Fans!

It is with great sadness that Kathy and I announce that Amazontrails will be closing. We have enjoyed our wild ride with the Warrior Princess and Her Bard. What a time we have had. We began our site as a way to share our stories with the world. Then we gave a home to the poets and artists of the Xenaverse. We wish to personally thank alwayslooking, wishes, and tim for being some of the first to grace our pages with your beautiful work. And we would like to thank all the others who gave their work to us and helped to create a home. As you have probably seen, we had just started to remodel the old pages. But as things go, things change.

As many of you know, I have Breast Cancer. Almost two years ago, it spread to my lung and I had spots on my spine. Then last January, a tumor destroyed two vertebrate in my back. I had to have the vertebrate replaced and now have a cage and some metal rods in my back. I spent some time learning to walk again. Now we found out that the cancer has spread through my bones and my liver. Because of this Kathy and I have decided to dedicate our energies fighting this disease.

We have decided to start an organization: Hope Lives On. We will be selling some items to help raise money for our cause. The main purpose of the organization will be to help woman with breast cancer take care of their pets. As you all know, Kathy and I love animals. After getting our four lovely dogs, I got sick again and was out of work. Thankfully, some friends brought over some dog food and helped us feed our babies. We hope to do the same for women so that no one will have to give up their child dog or cat because they can't afford to feed them. My long term plan is to create a nation-wide network of pet carekeepers to help watch over women's animals while they are in the hospital or unable to care for them herself. We will also be sponsering some runners for the Komen Race for the Cure, walkers for the Walk for Hope, as well as other worthwhile causes as we come across them.

We have decided to focus all of our energies in this direction for now. So while Amazontrails will be closing - Hope Lives On is just beginning. We would love your support as we begin our journey down this new trail.

Please visit us at: hopeliveson.com

We will be selling on Ebay as: hope-lives-on
(hopeliveson is not us so please include the dashes)

If you would like to contact us: linda@hopeliveson.com

If need be, please download any story you would like to keep. If you are a webmistress and are interested in hosting our stories, please contact me.
The site should be open for the next three months. Please bookmark our new site as it is currently under construction but will be opening new pages steadily.

BATTLE ON!

Linda and Kathy

In Memory of Dr Susan Barnes

  • Nomad (aka Chris) has created a site in Memory of Dr Susan Barnes.

Lucy Articles - Battlestar Galactica



Added scans from The Official Battlestar Galactica Magazine #6 Reach For the Battlestars

 

Added scan/transcript from Out Magazine August 2006 Something For The Ladies. The lesbian icons of the sci-fi world range from an ancient Greek warrior princess to a space-traveling Borg. Read on for the rundown. Includes scans of the interview with Jamie Bamber (Apollo from BSG) and has a brief mention of Lucy.

Celebrity Duets Update

Sharon has updated the Lucy site with another Lucy podcast which was recorded in early July. Lucy explains why she chose to be on a reality tv show even though she has stated in the past that she hates shows like that. It seems the opportunity to be mentored by someone like Smokey Robinson was just too good an opportunity to pass up. Lucy has always said that you should regret the things you didn't do and not the things you have done. So Lucy doesn't want to be an 80 year old and regret not singing with Smokey! Onya Lucy!

The phone bill be higher in August/September as calls from Oz to the US to support Lucy will be running hot at my place! My Telco will be happy with me <g>
You can download the podcast here


8 August 2006


Sad news. The following news was posted on the merwolfpack list by Lida:

For the elders of the Xenaverse, I thought some of you might remember Dr. Susan Barnes (aka Alaska). She died very unexpectedly yesterday. As she had no family other than her beloved boxers, please keep her friends in your thoughts and prayers as we process the news. A memorial page will be put up for friends to share their thoughts and memories of Susan and I'll send it along as soon as I know what it is.
