Warrior Women News

Not Xena related but about Warrior Women. This is for Canadian fans

Secrets of the Dead: Amazon Warrior Women airs Wednesday at 8 p.m. on PBS (check local listings).

For centuries, the myth of amazon warrior women has endured, even in the absence of any proof of their existence. But now Secrets of the Dead uncovers telling evidence: the 2,500-year-old remains of a nomad woman in Russia, buried in a battle position, with swords and arrowheads among the bones.
This is the discovery of an American scientist, Jeannine Davis-Kimball, who follows a trail of artifacts to a remote village in western Mongolia, then finds a living descendent: a nine-year-old girl with an exact genetic match to the ancient remains.

On all three sites there is a nifty little orange XML RSS image. What does this mean (Other than the colour clashing with the deep purple)? Well Ausxip, The Lucy Lawless Files and The ROC Files have now got a RSS syndication. What the heck does that mean I hear you ask.

People can get BBC, CNN, Yahoo, Google, National Geographics, basically any and all types of news with RSS without having to go to the site or to a newsgroup. Now that includes AUSXIP.

Your Yahoo Page that usually contains news from papers and such can now bring you the latest news from Ausxip as well. That doesn't mean the content goes offsite - the content remains on the site, just the headlines are displayed. 

While this won't replace the daily email updates via yahoo, it adds another benefit to visitors.  Many thanks to Mesh once again for this innovative new addition to AUSXIP.

Alien Apocalypse News

Josh has finally added more pics from the set of Alien Apocalypse, but unfortunately Renee isn't in any of them. There are a few of Bruce in his astronaut uniform, which would be like what Renee had to wear. ere are also a couple of better pictures of the Aliens from the movie.

Xenaverse/Hercules News

They're making Hercules again - Angie Harmon as Alcmene? Oy now there's a dubious casting if ever there was one...the following is from Zap2It

LOS ANGELES (Zap2it.com) Sean Astin, who played big-hearted hobbit Sam Gamgee in the "Lord of the Rings" films, is stepping into another project steeped in myth. Astin, along with Leelee Sobieski and Timothy Dalton, will star in NBC's four-hour miniseries "Hercules," according to The Hollywood Reporter. British actor Paul Telfer will play the title role, and Angie Harmon is also in negotiations to join the cast. The miniseries, tentatively scheduled for May 2005, begins filming in late August in New Zealand. Veteran director Roger Young ("Jesus," "Murder in Mississippi") will helm the Hallmark Entertainment project. Charles Pogue ("The Fly") wrote the script.

    Update on the transcript of the Lucy interview with Jennifer Pizer, Julie sent me some info that sheds light on what Lucy said in Maori. Many thanks to Julie for that :)

    "Lucy responded with "Kia ora, Tena tatou katoa," which is used as a formal inclusive greeting to everybody present, including oneself.  It sounds as though Lucy may have changed "tatou" to "katou," -- (there is a similar Maori greeting "Tena koutou," -- which means the same thing but is pronounced differently). If anybody is interested in learning more, there is a great website called "100 Maori Words every NZer Should Know,"  located at the following link: http://www.nzhistory.net.nz/Gallery/tereo/words.htm


    Clicking on each phrase opens a QuickTime file that gives the proper pronounciation.  A nifty little site!

    New Lucy Interview - The following is from Lesbianation

    Lucy Lawless Talks About Her GLBT Charity Fetish

    Working for gay, lesbian, bi and trans rights has been a big part of Lucy Lawless' life ever since the community established itself among her most loyal subjects during her reign as television's "Xena: Warrior Princess." Her efforts recently brought the New Zealand native to Los Angeles for a special Pride event. While she was there, Lawless took the chance to talk about her work with GLBT charities on "This Way Out," a radio program for the GLBT community.
    Many thanks to Alexis for the news

    • Added audio file (mp3 and wma) of Lucy's interview from This Way Out Program
      Many thanks to Ann for the audio file

    Exposure by XWPFanatic, T Muir & T. Novan
    This is a continuing series based on a look behind the scenes of news team. Two people come together - it's hate at first sight. Kelsey is a successful anchor woman ready for big things in the new biz and Harper is a hot shot, harley driving, reporter with alot of flair! Mix them together and you have one of the best teams since Xena and Gabrielle <g> I enjoyed this series from the first episode.

    The other big winning film of the night was "Girl Play," which won Best Lesbian Feature for director Lee Friedlander, who won $1,000. Outstanding actress went to the leads Robin Greenspan and Lacie Harmon, who play their real-life love story in the film which also stars Dom Deluise.

    "If I knew I'd get to come up here and kiss Xena, then I'd have made this movie years ago," laughed Friedlander, who kissed celebrity presenter Lucy Lawless at the closing ceremonies held at the John Anson Ford Theatre in Hollywood.

    It is a playbill from Grease during Lucy's run that is autographed by the entire cast! Everyone but Lucy is in pen, her's is in black marker on the lower right hand corner.  It includes Sean McDerrmott (Danny Zucco) who will also be there and Lucy's good friend, Tony award winner and also one of the nicest people you could ever meet, Marissa Jaret Winokur. To name a few. I  went to the first five performances and had the entire cast sign it, and on the final night I had Lucy sign it, she was very touched by this.

    Fanfic Alert: Judith is looking for a fanfic reader - but not just any fanfic reader. Seems the 6th part of planet-solin's Conqueror series was almost complete when it was lost in a hard drive crash. Planet-solin recalls sending it to a reader privately for a bit of feedback. She has since lost touch with that reader. But, thought perhaps that reader may have filed the story away.

    Whew...nobody here.

    Psssstttt...

    I got to tell you something...

    I know y'all won't tell, right?

    If y'all would like to get in on a "top secret-I can't tell you or they will kill me" special project that BardCon and, the one and only, Lucia are cooking up for the Lucia Of The Month Club...

    You need only answer one important question...
    the question poised on every person's lips...
    the essential question at that special moment in life...

    Hey Darlin', what's your sign?

    Just send me your zodiac sign...I don't need your exact birthdate or the year, just your sign. And your online name (how you ID yourself online), please.

    If you don't know...here is a list:
    Capricorn Dec 22 to Jan 19
    Aquarius Jan 20 to Feb 18
    Pisces Feb 19 to Mar 20
    Aries Mar 21 to Apr 19
    Taurus Apr 20 to May 20
    Gemini May 21 to Jun 20

    Libra Sep 23 to Oct 22
    Scorpio Oct 23 to Nov 21
    Sagittarius Nov 22 to Dec 21

    Oh and one more thing...
    <.looking around again.>

    Don't buy any 2005 Calendars yet ;o)

    Send your info to me at PHIL728@aol.com  and make sure you put Zodiac Sign as the subject line. I will acknowledge the information I receive with a return email. Cool? Very.
    Deadline, for inclusion, is August 22nd, please---but send me the email ASAP anyway...I know people forget things and have short atten...ummmmm...what were we talking about again? <.g.>

    PHIL,
    BardCon2004+1 Staff

    Oh yeah...the BardCon Postcard Project is currently in creative production. Our original idea took an unexpected turn and took on a new life of it's own. ;o) I think y'all will be pleasantly surprised at the results. Also, for those of you coming to nex...ummm...the BardCon gathering after the last one (whenever that may be <.g.>)...you will be able to see all the original postcards we collected, as well.

    Please feel free to pass on the info to anyone you think may be interested in participating. It's painless...honest. Really. Well there is always the possibility of getting a papercut later but the chances are very tiny.

    Take the risk...you know you want to.

    In keeping with BardCon PHILosophy, I want EVERYONE to play...bards/writers, fans/readers, webmistresses (isn't that a great word?) and artists. The more the merrier...besides you don't want me to keep flooding your mailboxes with these silly emails, now do you?
    I didn't think so. Good, now that we understand each other...send me the info.


    Xena Xena Everywhere!

    It seems Xena is making her presence felt all over the place - I've read several reviews of the movie "Arthur" that mention either Lucy Lawless or Xena when comparing Keira Knightley's (how apropos is her surname to this movie?) Guinevere to Xena. Today I was reading the paper and another review of this movie with a caption under Keira that simply said "Warrior Princess". As Lucy said recently "This show has legs" :-)

    Updated the TV Shows mentions with a mention on "Whose Line Is It Anyway" (US Version)

    Site Announcement:

    I am very pleased to announce the re-opening of the Artwork section. There are 165 artists listed in the Artwork section - Cindy has redesigned the section and it looks fantastic!

    If you would like your work on AUSXIP you may now submit it to Cindy at forevaxena@ausxip.com - no nudity is allowed.  You can submit wallpapers, line art, drawings etc. A huge thank you to Cindy for her work on this.

    Mt Kilimanjaro Trip

    Anybody out there interested in a group climb of Mt. Kilimanjaro in Africa? This is not an "official" Xena gig; it's just a couple of fans who thought it would be fun to make the trip with other Xenites.

    Who?  You and dozen or so other Xenites.  If we get enough for two groups, we’ll make the tour company very, very happy.

    When?  July 2006 (That’s 2 years to raise the cash for the trip, lose that extra weight, quit smoking and get in shape!)

    Where?  Book the entire trip from your front door, or meet up with the group in Tanzania for an 8-day hike to Uhuru Peak & back.

    How?  The trek to the summit does not involve technical climbing.  It’s a rugged hike and if you’re fit you have a good chance of reaching the top.

    How much?  Man, you ask tough questions!  The trip could cost as little as ~$4,000 or as much as $6,000, depending on airfares, add-ons, & inflation.  The $6,000 would include a 5-day/4-night camera safari in the Serengeti.

    Why?  Because it’s there!  Because ROC did it!  Because you can do it!  Because it will be the adventure of a lifetime AND you get to share it with other Xenites

    Are you interested? Take the poll and let us know!

    10 July

    Wow this is exciting news - and congratulations to Patricia Parker and Rebekah Lynn - two VERY talented Xenaverse artists for getting their work recognised by Rittenhouse Archives! Rittenhouse Archives has announced a new card set - Art and Images of Xena: Warrior Princess and to top it off - Renee has done some art and these will be available in the set: The following is from SciFic Hobby site

    For the first time in a Xena trading card set, Rittenhouse Archives presents collectors with one of the hottest chase cards in today's market. Each box of Art and Images of Xena: Warrior Princess will contain one hand-drawn sketch card! Artists for this series include Warren Martineck, John Czop, Cris Bolson, Sean Pence, Emir Ribeiro, Patrick Hamill, Eduardo Pansica, Joe Corroney, Scott Rosema, Steven Miller, Patricia Parker and Pablo Raimondi. Fans can expect to find their sketches of their favorite characters including Xena, Gabrielle, Joxer, Argo, Ares, Callisto, Aphrodite, Hercules, Borias and others highly detailed in pencil, ink and color!

    Continuing the theme of art in this series, collectors will find artwork from three different artists. Artists Rebekah Lynn and Patricia Parker, both Xena enthusiasts themselves, have lent their stunning artwork to this series. Their artwork truly captures the danger and passion of the show. Artist Douglas Shuler will be creating nine new pieces of artwork exclusively for this series that when put together form one large image.

    Probably the most exciting pieces of artwork in this series will be those created by series co-star Renee O'Connor. We all know that Renee can act, but did you know that she can draw as well? Renee has drawn 9 new pieces of artwork of her friends from the show including Lucy Lawless as Xena, Kevin Smith as Ares, Alexandra Tydings as Aphrodite, Ted Raimi as Joxer as well as self-portrait of herself as Gabrielle.

    REAF - Help Is On the Way X Benefit News

    Here some pretty cool news (thanks for passing this on Warren).

    Help is on the Way X benefit is SOLD OUT and according to the REAF newsletter this is the earliest they have ever sold out <g> I suspect quite a few Lucy fans had something to do with this :) They are now adding people to their waiting list in case they get some tickets that are returned. So if you haven't bought your tickets - you're out of luck.

    Commemorative Program Books available for pre-order -

    this is what they said about the program books:

    We’ve had a number of inquiries from people unable to attend the benefit, primarily Lucy Lawless fans, about the possibility of ordering program books so we’re making them available for pre-sale on our website now.  Commemorative program books within the US can be ordered for $10 each which includes shipping. International orders are $15.  Program book orders will be mailed out about a week after the benefit. We’d also like to offer our thanks the many Lucy Lawless fans who have contributed to her tribute ad in this program. If anyone else is interested in placing an ad in the program book, our ad deadline for camera-ready art is July 15. Advertising in our program book is not only a great way to reach a prime audience, it’s also a way of supporting REAF and our beneficiaries in our fight against AIDS. Information about ordering programs as well as other details about “Help is on the Way X” can be found at: http://www.richmondermet.org/reaf10.1/help10.html.
     

    Silent Auction Preview

    The silent auction portion of “Help is on the Way X” is shaping up to be a great auction featuring great travel packages with hotel accommodations all around the US and Hawaii, quality artwork, local hotel and dining packages, great wines and other merchandise as well as fabulous celebrity memorabilia. Two full “Xena: Warrior Princess” costumes, worn by Lucy Lawless on the hit series, will be previewed at the benefit and offered in a special online auction the week following the show. We are still accepting silent auction items up until July 16 so it’s not too late to make a donation. Auction donations are listed and previewed on our website and updated on a regular basis as new items come in. Check it out at: http://www.richmondermet.org/reaf10.1/help10.html.

    REAF - Help Is On the Way X Benefit News

    The following is from Crystal about the REAF Benefit Programs

    I know that there are a lot of you who will not be able to attend the upcoming performance that Lucy will be singing in in San Francisco.  When many Lucy fans from other groups asked for copies of the program I emailed Ken Henderson, one of the coordinators of the event, and suggested that they might want to make the programs available for sale to the fans who cannot attend.  This is what he replied:


    "Your suggestion about making programs available for sell after the event is a good one. We can certainly do that. We can actually probably presell them now to make sure we print enough if there is a big demand. It would also help offset the cost of printing them. That would also take the burden off of those of you who are attending to try and take multiple copies and distribute them. I'll try and get that option up on the website by Monday so if you wanted to let people know they can preorder programs there, that would behelpful."


    So for those of you who would like copies of the program for your own collection, keep an eye on their web site so that you can order however many copies you'd like. And remember, all proceeds will be going to the organization and I bet once they tell Lucy how many of you have preordered the program, it will bring a bit of a smile to her already beautiful face.  :-)

    Honourable Lucy mention in relation to the movie "King Arthur"

    King Arthur review by Ron Reed | posted 07/07/04
    <snipped>
    We even get a damsel-in-distress Guinevere (a feisty and fetching Keira Knightley, the best thing about the movie), and though she definitely fits the "fair maiden" bill, this warrior princess is more Lucy Lawless than Vanessa Redgrave. Kinda fun.

    Many thanks to Barbara Davies for the news

    Dear In Sequence,

    The board of L.A. Frontrunners decided not to have Ms. Lawless trapped behind a table away from the crowd so that she could interact with the participants. As you can tell, that method was a huge success and Lucy was a great sport and really enjoyed meeting her fans. I hope to see you
    all at next year's Los Angeles Pride Run, although we are not decided on next year's celebrity host. And I agree with you, lesbian fans often get nada from Hollywood. I'm glad we could adress that this year, at least at the Pride Run. Thanks for your support.

    Sincerely,
    Tanya S. Haney
    Director at Large

She is also a gifted artist and her work will be an absolute delight to have here. Over the coming days, I will be adding Judi's creations to the site.

    To date, you have $855 donated towards the ad plus some additional funds ($300) "in honor of Lucy Lawless."

    Lucy has been our biggest ticket seller over all 10 years, from what we can track. Her fans have been great and so supportive of her. We really appreciate the support you all give us in honor of her. She's been terrific to work with all long as well, a really terrific lady.

    Site News

    That was an interesting day yesterday...to allay everyone's fears, Ausxip won't be moving or changing. The following is an FAQ about the merger that answers some questions:

     1. Will the colour scheme on Ausxip change
     
     No. It will remain the same until I get another urge to tweak <g>
     
     No major change on ausxip other than the additional help of Cindy  and her talents. The major change has occurred on FX. FX is now a portal to  AUSXIP linking to The Bard's Corner, The Ebook section, The Lucy Lawless Files - Lawless Lair (Cindy's Lucy section has been merged into TLLF), The ROC Files and various other sections including the  what's new page. You will see a link to ForevaXena on the what's new page. Similar to The Lucy Lawless Files & The ROC Files, FX has now become an AUSXIP umbrella site.

    2. Will the fan fic sections merge
     
     No. Those bards on ForevaXena that are also in The Bard's Corner  will be  merged into ausxip but those not in TBC will remain on FX. FX will retain a fan fic section.
     
     3. Music Videos
     
     They will be merged. Details will be posted about that shortly.
     
     4. What is the significance/advantages of the merger
     
     As Cindy has outlined - we won't be doubling up on info and both  sites will benefit from the combined talents of their webmasters and contributors. It's a win/win situation. Ausxip gains the talents of Cindy and FX resources and FX gains the combined resources of all the sites under Ausxip.

     5. When can I start sending in my artwork?
     
     Not yet. Cindy has just got over her shock at seeing the amount  of art in the artwork section and I don't want to scare her <g> An announcement will  be made when the artwork section is back up and accepting  submissions.

    Major Site Announcement

    AUSXIP AND FOREVAXENA MERGE

    I have the great pleasure in announcing a merger between Ausxip (and the Lucy and ROC sites) and Forevaxena which is run by Cindy.

    Cindy (Forevaxena) and I have come to an agreement where the Forevaxena site will merge into Ausxip. That doesn't mean forevaxena will disappear off the Xenaverse radar, it just means that Cindy will alter the focus of Forevaxena and merge some aspects of Forevaxena into Ausxip.

     
    What this also means for Ausxip is that Cindy has volunteered to maintain the artwork section on ausxip. Now what that means for artists is that they can now submit their artwork again. The Xenaverse is chock full of talented people. One of those talented fans is Cindy. Having a dedicated webmaster like Cindy join Mesh, Judi, Ann and the regular contributors at AUSXIP will only benefit the Xenaverse.
     
    I have always admired Cindy's work and it's an honour to have her join AUSXIP, The Lucy Lawless Files and The ROC Files.

    A word from Cindy/ForevaXena:

    I must preface this by saying that MaryD and her site have always been an inspiration.  “The Australian Xena Information Page (AUSXIP)” has been my favorite site from the very beginning; one which I eventually tried to pattern my “ForevaXena…” site after.

    Over the years I have tried to bring a similar variety and quality of content to the visitors of “ForevaXena…”.  I knew from the beginning that I didn’t just want to “copy” what Mary was providing, but rather etch out a unique type of site with it’s own character and offerings, and certainly make it is “subtexty” as possible!  I never expected that it would grow to become the massive site that is has.  For that, I am very grateful to all of you from the bottom of my heart J

    Unfortunately, due to the limitations on my time in the past couple of years, my (at one time) daily updates have suffered greatly.  While I still believe that “ForevaXena…” should remain online for everything that is unique to it, I also feel that my efforts and online time would be better spent helping Mary continue to expand and maintain “AUSXIP”.  It is, without question, THE site to find all things Xena!

    Rather than try to duplicate material on “ForevaXena…” (which will remain online in some form) and have both of us spending time posting the same info, Mary and I are teaming up to consolidate our efforts.  Hopefully this will take “AUSXIP” to an even higher level (if that’s possible!) of achievement.  I look forward to helping her bring even more varied content to the site, all the while allowing each of us a little more time for RL
