Lucy News / Media Alerts

NZ Media Alert
The current issues of the NZ magazines New Idea and Woman's Day have pics of Lucy & Daisy at the NZ Fashion Show - the following is from Leanne at Kiwi Attic:
NI021102.jpg (27499 bytes)Check out the latest New Idea and Womans Day featuring Lucy Lawless! :-) As you know, It was New Zealand fashion week last week, and as well as the photos which have been seen in the papers of Lucy dressed as a man, these articles have some really nice pictures of her looking very 'chic' in a short, wavy wig. The beginning of the article reads: "Kiwi star Lucy Lawless made a shock appearance at New Zealand Fashion Week - not because she was there - but because she was wearing a wig. The former Xena Warrior Princess was one of the lucky few to get a ticket to the Zambesi fashion show at Auckland's Oriental markets and was seated next to Alannah Currie of the Thompson Twins, who was also wearing a wig. Though they had never met before, Lucy andAlannah have become e-mail buddies over their opposition to genetic engineering. They couldn't believe it when they discovered they were both sitting beside each other and both wearing wigs................."
WD041102A.jpg (7799 bytes)The article continues "Lucy, who wore a dark curly-haired wig, may have wanted to remain incognito, but there was no mistaking the beautiful Xena star. She also attended the Kate Sylvester fashion show first and l,ooked like amodel herself. She wore knee-high boots, a sexy mini skirt and a funky jacket. She left her two young sons at home to attend the event with her daughter, Daisy, who is growing into a very beautiful young woman."
There is also word in the article that Lucy is off this week to LA to discuss further career plans for a movie. The Womans Day has a page on the fashion show, with a small picture of Lucy and Daisy in attendance. Details of the cost of these magazines can be found on the pages at the links below. Please note that shipping prices have increased since our last lot of Lucy magazine news.

greenribbon.jpg (4600 bytes)Australians have been encouraged to observe a minute's silence at noon and wear a piece of wattle on Sunday to commemorate the national day of mourning for the dead and bereaved of the Bali terrorist attack.

Prime Minister John Howard said wearing wattle would be "a simple unifying tribute". He also encouraged the planting of wattle seeds where possible as a quiet personal gesture of remembrance and reflection.

If you can't find the wattle (which is just going out of season) you can wear a green ribbon. Green and gold are Australia's national colours. For those in Sydney, there will be a community tribute at The Domain. Details below http://www.smh.com.au/articles/2002/10/17/1034561269047.html

    --SAM RAIMI Long renowned as an off-kilter visionary, the genre-blending Ubergeek who gave us the Evil Dead trilogy, A Simple Plan, and Xena: Warrior Princess finally found a mainstream project that agreed with him--and with just about everyone else. Spider-Man grossed $400 million- plus but also earned the ultimate stamp of approval: Comics-loving Pulitzer winner Michael Chabon has agreed to work on the sequel's script.

Today is a very sad day in Australia - October 12 saw a terrorist blast in Kuta, Bali, Indonesia. Bali is where a lot of Australians go for their holidays - it's a stone's throw from Australia (3 hours). Two bombs went off and according to reports "110 Australians injured and a further 220 unaccounted for at this stage:. Those who survived suffered horrific burns and other injuries. Many of them were from football clubs who were celebrating their end of season or Aussies on their annual holidays.

Those who survived are being airlifted back home to hospitals that can care for their burns because the hospitals in Bali are overwhelmed.

This was a heinous terrorist act and those that perpertrated it are cowards and lowlifes. As we all learned on September 11, that no one is immune to madmen who wish to spread their hatred. We are witnessing this also in Washington DC where the sniper has already claimed 8 lives and hurt 2.
