Hold it, boys! Huh, do you think I’m not used to men chasing me? Same old story. Can’t believe I’m beginning to chafe. OK, look I’m sure that even people of your ilk can appreciate perfection, right?

Lucy Snippets in the News

  • What the Kiwi Gossip Mag Says - 1 June 2006
    Source: Stuff.co.nz
    WW takes its life into its hands by visiting Lucy Lawless at her Los Angeles home. The former Xena actress' son Judah let the family's pet snake out late one night, and she hasn't been able to find it since. "Judah used to do terrible things," Lucy says. "Once we found him sitting naked with the snake on his lap." At least he didn't release the family's pet tarantula.

Xena Fan Club News

The following is from Sharon Delaney on the Official Xena Fan Club Page

  • I'm wrapping up finding the dailies for the Raw Footage part of Kit 11.  The two episodes I searched through are "Past Imperfect" and "The Greater Good."  That footage, along with Coffee Talk 5 and bloopers, are the contents of Kit 11.  As we go into the editing stage, I'll keep you updated over on the left.  And I'm going to make a couple trailers, as I did for the convention dvd, so you'll have an idea the kinds of fun things I'm discovering.

 

11 May 2006


I want to mark an event that occured here in the last few days. You may all remember the "Eternity" and Arthur Stace story which I wrote about. For those that can't remember, he's a brief recap. Arthur was an alcoholic. One day he walked into a church and listened to a sermon. Like Saul on the road to Damascus he converted to Christianity. What was special about Arthur Stace was he would write ETERNITY in beautiful script all over the footpath - it became a trademark, of sorts - his love for what he learnt moved him to write about what was in his heart. His life was one of inspiration. He was honoured during the 2000 New Year's celebrations with Eternity being emblazoned on the Harbour Bridge
 

A little of bit Sydney history went up in flames in the early hours of May 10th. St Barnabas' Church burned down. St Barnabas was the church Arthur walked into and found his faith.

St Barnabas was also a favourite of mine - every day when I worked in town for over 10 years, I would ride the bus in and every week St Barnabas would have a sign outside welcoming everyone to their services. What was special about those signs were they were funny. What was even funnier was the pub across the street from the church would match the sign of the week with one of their funny quips. It was a very friendly rivalry that made the commute nicer. That church burned down but the sign board remained. There are plans to rebuild the church but a little bit of Sydney history was destroyed.

and now back to regular programming:

In Search of a Xena FANatic!

You are a Xena FANatic? Well the following might interest you - Jenn from XWPONline sent this over to me. Thanks Jenn. Now this is open to
US and Canadian Xenites only.
You can write to Jenn for more info at info@xwponline.net.

By way of introducing myself, my name is Jennifer and I'm coordinating an upcoming Canadian television series called FANatical. FANatical is a new television series about the world s most obsessive television fans.

As the host of the of a popular Xena website, I was hoping that you may be able to point me in the direction of the ultimate Xena Fan.  We re looking for 2-3 fans from Canada and America.  They should be obsessed, have collections, know all the words to any given episode, maybe even have themed homes!

FANatical acknowledges that there exists all levels of fandom out there but we only want the most passionate   the most serious and also the ones who have the most fun with it. We can t wait to laugh with them and join in their extreme enthusiasm.

If you have any suggestions as to who might be the most extreme Xena fan
around or would like more information, please don t hesitate to drop me a
line.

Thanks,
Jennifer.

Lucy DVD News

DVDTalk has a review of Saturday Night Live: The Best of Cheri Oteri.

The DVD features Lucy in the hilarious Judge Judy skit:
Judge Judy (with Ana Gasteyer, Tracy Morgan, Judy Sheindlin and Lucy Lawless): Oteri does a great Judge Judy, and has a great case in front of her, with Lawless as a stripper clown, but it's an appearance by the real Judge Judy and the way that Oteri plays off her that makes the sketch enjoyable.

"After a little burnout and a lot of procrastination :), we are happy to announce that Spirit of Xena, the latest fan film by Deborah Abbott and Wendy Woody, is finally ready to order! The DVD also contains:

  • Bloopers from the film;

  • Xena TV Themes 2 video;

  • The Dating Show - a film by Deborah Abbott for the official Star Wars contest that features a certain Warrior Princess we all know and love;

If you haven't been following this story, I think you will find this inspirational. At 9.30pm on Anzac Day (25 April 2006) an earth tremor measuring 2.1 on the Richter scale causes a rock fall at the Beaconsfield (Tasmania) Joint Venture gold mine trapping 17 miners underground Fourteen reach a safety chamber, but Todd Russell, aged in his 30s, Brant Webb, aged in his 40s, and Larry Knight, 44, are trapped 925m underground. Larry Knight lost his life but Brant and Todd were saved by the cage they were in. They are still underground, 10 days later. They are being dug out by their mates and it's just one of those stories that makes you sit back and not think of all the crappy things going on in this world. Check out the progress of the digging - they should be out by Saturday (Aussie time).

and other reports about this disaster and the recovery of the two men.

Lucy Video Clip - Lawless Ink

Great News from Creation Entertainment

[Message from Sharon: You may have seen the recent announcement that we have more material from the convention than originally thought so that it is now going to be a two dvd set of almost 3 hours of material including Lucy's soundcheck of her song which was filmed Thursday afternoon.  Because the dvd now has two discs, the price has gone up. If you've already bought the dvd at the old price, you will not be charged for the difference.]

Finally, we have an update on the eagerly awaited DVD of Lucy and Renee appearing at the 2006 Official XENA Convention...

While we've been editing this new DVD for release we found that we had a lot more footage than we realized!   The finished DVD comes to almost three hours!  Renee was on stage for one hour twenty minutes and Lucy for one hour ten minutes.  We also shot behind-the-scenes footage and made two bonus featurettes.  Lucy did a soundcheck of her song on Thursday afternoon and she's allowing us to include footage from that.  Her featurette also includes behind-the-scenes before and after her stage appearance.  Renee's bonus featurette includes behind-the-scenes before and after her stage appearance and some of her photo ops session. SO WE'VE ACTUALLY GOT ANOTHER APPROXIMATELY ONE HALF HOUR OF BONUS MATERIAL ON THE DVD: NOW IT IS A TWO VOLUME DVD SET!!!


Xenaverse News

I received the following from Jenn at XWPOnline:

We've got this topic going on the XOC about where Xena aired throughout the world. We've got about 40 countries right now, but we know that Xena at it's height aired in 115 counties. (Hercules submissions are also encouraged.)

This is what we have so far:

Holland (Netherlands), Germany, Belgum, Luxembourg, Switserland, France, Spain, Italy, Greece, Macedonia, Norway, Denmark, Finland, Russia, Poland,
The Balkans, The former Yugoslavia, England, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland,
Southern Ireland, Greenland, Canada, Quebec, Mexico, Peru, South America, South Africa, Egypt, Botswana, Indonesia, Malaysia, Sri Lanka, Australia, Tonga,
Samoa, Fiji, New Zealand, United States.

If people could let me know if XWP aired in their country, it'd be great. Some of us are really curious. Drop me a line at info@xwponline.net
