More travelling down memory lane...Wonder Woman - Season 1 - has been released on DVD in the US. Wonder Woman was one my favourite action heroes when I was a kid - Wonder Woman and Isis <vbg> Anyone remember Isis? Along with Shazam ...gosh...I'm getting nostalgic. It's a good thing computers were a future dream or else I may be doing The Australian Wonder Woman Information Page instead of Xena<vbg>

The following was sent by Charlotte:
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution Newspaper had an article  entitled The "Princess Hall of Fame". Sunday June 13th edition. Listed as the No 1 Princess was Xena, followerd by Princess Diana of UK.  The jist of the words about Xena was that she was a mighty warror priness who did not get her man, but there is doubt that she was ever looking for one.

The following is from Leanne at Kiwi Attic:

Lucy is in fine form in the latest New Idea Magazine. Pictured at the 34th Annual LA LGBT Pride Parade, Lucy is really playing up to the camera in a cheeky pose. She was a huge bow on the front of her short black dress with sleek black gloves covering her whole arm, finished with a kiwi tiki around her neck.
 
There are 2 pics of Lucy in this mag, see attached. If you would like a copy, just let us know. The total is US$14.00 and this includes shipping. (Its a heavy mag!)

For Swedish fans - Mike sent me the following news

  • Xena is featured in an exibition about the middle ages at the swedish Museum of History ("Historiska museet") between may 8 and august 29. She is shown alongside Ivanhoe and other well known characters in one of the rooms that belong to the event.  http://www.svenskhistoria.se/museer/205.html

The following is for German Fans -

  • it seems the TV station has decided to cancel Xena midway through Season 6 (due to low ratings). The German fans have waited 3 years to see the 6th season and now TPTB have cut it short. There is now a petition to get the rest of Season 6 shown at http://www.renee-oconnor.de - the site is in German

LA Frontrunners Reports & Images

What is Lucy wearing around her neck? Is it a green jelly thing? Calli sent this explanation for the 'green thing' that Lucy is wearing in the pictures:

Lucy is wearing a 'Tiki'. What is a Tiki? Tiki in Maori personifies primeval man.   Powerful good luck symbol. The tilted head symbolises thinking, the hand is strength, the mouth is communication, the heart is love and the loins are fertility.
Many thanks to Calli for the explanation

Early report from Dan after the race:
I MET LUCY AND GOT HER AUTOGRAPH!
I just got back from the front runners race in West Hollywood where Lucy blew the starting horn at the race and handed out medals and awards! Lucy autographed a baseball and shirt for me, while I was wearing the shirt! Lucy is as beautiful in real life as she is when she plays Xena, and you wouldn't believe how kind she is. She must have autographed over 500 things today! God Bless her!

FicPick of the Week

Juicy Fruits by Chris M
You know it's very difficult to read and laugh at the same time...but I somehow managed to do it when reading this absolute fantastic piece by Chris. This story involves Gabrielle trying to tell Joxer about her relationship with Xena...it somehow links juices...fruit juices. It's an absolutely hysterical story.

Many thanks to Barbara for the news

Sarge asked:
With every movie, tv program, movie of the week, etc. going to dvd, is it possible that once Alien Apocalypse is aired that it might go to dvd? If it does, will you do a directors cut version, or possibly with outtakes, commentaries, etc.?
I, along with countless other fans of both Renee and Bruce, would love to see that happen.

Josh replied:
There are no plans for a DVD release, but we'll see.


Rohan the Thunder Chick asked:
Now that your movie is finished filiming, do you have a say in the editing or music, etc?
 
Josh replied:
After the editor assembles the film, I do the director's cut making any changes I want. Then it's turned in and the producers can do whatever they'd like to it. They have hired my friend, Joe LoDuca, to score the film, and Joe has scored everything I've ever shot, including Herc and Xena. So I know it will have a good score.

Lucy News from Sharon Delaney/OXFC

Newsletter #28 is off to the printer with interviews with Lucy and Renee. Also one with Steve Sears on "The Dirty Half Dozen."

Lucy talks about women losing their lineage and their history and a newspaper report on an overheard restaurant conversation about that age-old question, "How do you measure a man's 'worth.'" We really shouldn't allow Lucy, Danielle Cormack and Madeleine Sami out in public without a chaperone. A tidbit:

"Well, then, you're right," she laughed. "I'm sure I didn't say 'worth' though," she added mischievously. "That's not my expression, but, yes, all right, okay, I admit it, it was me. Lucy the role model died. We can't find her." She burst out laughing. "But the thrust of the question . . ." And she dissolved in giggles again.

Renee News from The Official Xena Fan Club/Sharon Delaney

Newsletter #28 is off to the printer with interviews with Lucy and Renee. Also one with Steve Sears on "The Dirty Half Dozen."

Renee gives an in-depth report on filming "One Weekend a Month," and the fact that it had no script -- all improv! The character's cussing and dark side. Which led to a discussion of a something that happened when we filmed "Coffee Talk 3" with her and Lucy. A tidbit:

"You liked this cussing lady?" I teased. "I wonder if this interview will be in the same kit where we have you giving the finger on camera?" "What was I doing that for!" Renee said, her eyebrows heading for the top of my car. "You were describing your experience with road rage when we did the interview with Lucy during the DVD interviews. And you said to me, 'Can I show what I did, Sharon?'" I laughed. "You were talking to Lucy and you said, 'So I went like this to him in my rear view mirror,' and you made the one-fingered gesture." "Oh, yeah, yeah," Renee burst out laughing as she remembered. "And you did it three times," I told her wagging my finger in front of her face." "No!" Renee said, rolling with laughter. "So we're haviing a debate," I continued with mock seriousness, "do we show it once, twice, all three times? Do we cover the finger in a black band?" "That would be funny," Renee said, wiping her eyes and getting back to my original question.

Only One by Redhawk

In addition to being a major Xena fan (no kidding, you would never have figured that out...) I'm also a Highlander fan and I was over the moon when I read this story. Xena is an immortal - in the grand tradition of Highlander. Being an immortal can be rather tiresome when you don't have your soulmate to be with you and Xena goes through the millennia without Gabrielle - who promised to come back to her - and she does in the form of Rickie - a street kid who witnesses the immortal in action! Highly recommended. The whole INFINITY series is fantastic.

Question from David:
Sex scene between Bruce and Renee huh. Imaginations will be running wild I assure you.
But i have to ask.......where they clothed during the filming of this scene, and were they comfortable doing it; just curious how much modesty was present on set?
 
Answer from Josh:
It's not even a sex scene, it's the foreplay leading up to one, and they are both fully clothed. But I think it's very well-played, and even possibly touching.

Hang on to your seats! Special Events Co-ordinator, Theresa, has organised another movie night for every Friend of Xena - Shrek 2!  Ya-a-ay!
This is not just any animated feature but, if you feel uneasy as an adult going to a "kiddie's" flick, then grab a child, any child, and come along - it'll be a great experience. (You can ditch the kid once you're inside and the lights are down.)
After that, we'll wander off to this excellent pizza place we found and chill out (or we can go inside and warm up).
Let me know if you're joining us so we can arrange a group booking and share the discounted ticket price. (More pizza!)
When, you ask? Sunday June 20, mid-afternoon session
And where? Hoyts Cinemas at Eastgardens, Pagewood
RSVP ASAP to suebon@iprimus.com.au

Many thanks to xandrella for the news

Roach's Realm is holding a video contest and the purpose of the contest is to raise funds for a "convention" called "Musings of the Night" in September. All proceeds will be going to The Kevin Smith Trust Fund.

The premise of the contest is to allow fans of the videos to bid/donate and support interactively in the video creation.  All of the videos will be made custom order for the winning bidder.  An opportunity to have something custom made while supporting a great cause...what could be better?  and there will be lots of videos to go around and entertain us for a long time down the road.

Congratulations to Lucy for getting the Order of Merit in the Queen's Birthday Honour List for 2004

Lucy has been given this honour for services to entertainment and the community.

The following is from the NZ Herald - 7 June 2004

Another person from the entertainment world to be honoured was Lucy Lawless, made a member of the NZ Order of Merit. The 36-year-old actor, whose role as Xena in Xena: Warrior Princess made her a cult television star, has been involved with the Starship Foundation for the past 10 years and has held a role on its board of trustees for the past four years.  Starship Foundation chief executive Andrew Young said Lawless gave freely of her time.

The full list can be viewed here http://www.dpmc.govt.nz/honours/lists/list.asp?id=27

What is the Order of Merit?

Instituted in 1996, the New Zealand Order of Merit has five levels. Principal Companion (PCNZM), Distinguished Companion (DCNZM), Companion (CNZM), Officer (ONZM) and Member (MNZM). Prior to 2000 recipients at the first two levels were entitled to use the titles ‘Sir or Dame’. It is awarded for meritorious service to the Crown or the nation and to those who have become distinguished in their particular field of endeavour. Membership is restricted to 30 Principal Companions at any one time, 15 Distinguished Companions, 40 Companions, 80 Officers and 140 Members per year. More information on the New Zealand Order of Merit is available at the New Zealand Honours Secretariat web site.

In addition to Lucy getting the Order of Merit, Ngila Dickson also received the honour. The following is from the New Zealand Herald

Ngila Dickson, costume designer for Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King, was made an officer of the NZ Order of Merit. Screenwriter Philippa Boyens, designer Grant Major and editor Jamie Selkirk are made members of the NZ Order of Merit.

"It is a privilege and I'm excited about it but at the moment I'm alone with no champagne and no one to celebrate it with," Ms Dickson said from a Los Angeles hotel room.

Back Trouble by Della Street
I love Della Street's work and this little tale is just too cute for words. Poor Xena has hurt her back..just when she and Gabrielle were finding out what everyone out there in subtext land already knew! She is under orders to stay put in bed by the Amazon healer. Doing this is a tough job. A cute story.
