Xena Xena Everywhere

25 November

For those going to the 2005 Xena Con will get a nice surprise - Nifty new shirts designed by Lucy and Renee. The following is from Sharon Delaney:

"I have done a sketch, but I'm thinking of something else," Lucy said.
"I'm in my Van Gogh period," Renee said.

"Get out your drawing utensils," I said to Lucy and Renee.  And they did! And now we're going to premiere t-shirts with original artwork by Lucy and Renee at the upcoming convention.

The setting was perfect.  I met Lucy at what could easily pass for a Parisian cafe in Burbank and she had pad and pencil in hand.  She showed me the design she was working on and it was exactly what we were looking for to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the show.  As we sipped our coffee, she kept staring at the Gabrielle image part of the drawing and began to mumble to herself, "That's not quite right.  That's not quite Renee!  I gotta fix the nose."  She began making different noses and finally found one she liked and redid Gabrielle's face.  She was right.  The new sketch captured more of Renee's personality inside Gabrielle.

When I got back to the office, Renee phoned in with an update.  "I'm in my Van Gogh period," she informed me.  "Xena's face is yellow and her hair is red.  Is that okay?" she inquired a bit hesitantly.  "You go, girlfriend!" I told her, laughing.  And she headed happily back to her easel.

  • Added Beach Encounter (Complete) by Mickey
    After an unexpected breakup with the woman she thought she would be spending the rest of her life with, Sandy Craft returns to the town she grew up in to attend her high school reunion. And to give her broken heart time to heal. There she meets Marcie Toffee and begins to wonder if, just maybe, the true woman of her dreams isn’t the woman she met at the end of an old fishing pier. Would she return home with more than just memories of a weekend spent with a new friend? Sometimes good things can come out of a bad situation, will this be the case for Sandy?

Children's Hope Foundation Charity Appeal....

I would like to share with you a project I am supporting. An actress I know is performing in a play in NYC to fund The Children's Hope Foundation. We are looking to collect new clothes and toys for infants and kids with AIDS. The theater program is going to make enough cash for the Foundation. They are asking for bottles, bibs, and toys etc. If you are interested in donating an unwrapped item to this cause, you can contact me or visit Kimberly Amato's web site.  The deadline to donate is the 13th of December. Happy Holiday's to all!

Hi folks
 
It seems I put my foot in it by posting a cartoon of the new Secretary of State, Condeleeza Rice as Xena. This has offended a few people and after consideration of why this was offensive, I have decided to remove the cartoon. My sincerest apology to those that were offended.

Xena "Rested" for November & December on Oxygen (US)

Bad news for US Xenites - it seems Oxygen will no longer show Xena. It has been removed from the schedule for November and December. According to the official response is that they have "rested" the show for November and December. One possible explanation for this "resting" is that Oxygen loses it's licence in January 2005.

If you wish to voice your opinion on why Xena has been "rested" email them at

Official Xena Fan Club News

  • We're starting a new section called "Continuity." For those who don't know what the word means in the film world, it's the way they keep track of things, i.e. costumes, wounds, props, etc. They take notes and Polaroid photos during each scene so they can match them with either another part of the same scene shot on another day or  with the second unit filming their part of the scene. Rob Tapert has given us access to the makeup and costume continuity books and we're finding all sorts of interesting tidbits including the call sheets which led us to the discovery that Lucy and Renee actually didn't work together on the show until the third day of filming! We also found the first photo taken of Lucy on set as Xena in her very first scene and a shot of Renee from a scene that didn't make the final
    cut. Can't wait to dig in and see what other goodies are there!
