Quotable Quotes
"The first time you pick up a sword, you become a target. And the moment you kill...everything changes. Everything.

-- Xena to Gabrielle, Dreamworker"

31 December

As the countdown to the end of yet another year rolls on, I'm sitting here watching the news. It's beyond sad what is happening in Southeast Asia. All I ask is for people to donate money for the relief fund - I'm immensely proud of my countrymen and women as they have digged deep and have given $25 million dollars to the Red Cross and the Aussie government has given $60 million and more is to come. Other countries are also digging deep - For the Greater Good indeed.

We are all well off - we may not be millionaires but we have a roof over our heads, a place to sleep and food to eat. We have our families and our friends. To many millions of people in Asia right now, they have nothing - everything is gone. So please dig deep - every dollar counts. You can donate to your local Red Cross / Red Crescent, to your local chapter of international charity organisations - any place that is collecting money for those devastated by this disaster.

US: If you do not have a credit card and want to donate please go to the website below and that will give you a list of charities in the US

Australia: You can donate via a bank transfer if you do not have a credit card.

Sites accepting on-line donations for relief efforts - this site lists global charities and in your country which accepts donations.

Let's hope 2005 brings far less tragedy, less hatred, far far far less death and destruction.

Battle On

For the Greater Good Bracelet for AIDS Charity

Update from Jackie

We just wanted to give you a little background into the "For The Greater Good" bands. We thought that it would be cool if there was a way to identify other Xena fans while out and about. We came up with the idea of a wrist band, the likes of the Livestrong bands. As all
things in this wonderful Xenaverse, it didn't stop there. Everyone agreed beforehand that if we were going to sell bands, then we were going to charge a little extra to give to charity. Since Lucy is a big supporter of AIDS Organizations and several of us have lost  loved ones or have loved ones trying to live with AIDS, we chose The Actor's Fund,  AIDS Initiative. It is a program that helps people in the entertainment industry who have AIDS, with such things as support, case management, housing and financial assistance. The
monies that they receive can help a case worker take a person to their doctor’s appointment, buy groceries for someone who is homebound or help with housing and medical care. We figured that without the talented people in the entertainment industry, we, as Xena fans, would not have this amazing community to be a proud member of, so that is why we chose this particular charity. We get so much from the actors, this is a small way for us to give something back. Thank you for all of your support in this endeavor
and don't forget to be keeping your eyes open for those purple bands!

Sad news for the Xenaverse - Jonathan passed this information on to me.
My condolences go out to Liddy's family and friends.

Liddy Holloway died today (29 December) after a long battle with cancer. She is best remembered in New Zealand for her roles in Shortland Street. She is also well known in the Herc. and Xena communities for playing the role of Alcmene, mother of Hercules.

She is also the real life mother of Joel Tobeck who played Strife and Demos in Hercules and Xena.

One Weekend A Month Update

For those who won't be going to the Xena con or to a theater where the movie will be playing - here's the next best thing: (from Alex via Eric Escobar)

"You're in luck. One Weekend A Month will be showing on the Sundance On-line Film Festival website starting January 20th, so all of my fans, and of course Renee's fans, will be able to watch the film from the comfort of their desktops. Granted seeing the film on 35mm, in a theater, with an audience is a much more powerful experience, I'm delighted that everyone, everywhere with a DSL connection will be able to get the message of the film."

The Sundance online website is http://www.sundanceonlinefilmfestival.org
Apparently viewers will be able to access the films for free. Check in January to access the film. Many thanks to Alex for the information

As many of you are aware an earthquake which was the largest earthquake to strike the globe since 1964 has caused devastating tsunami waves that have killed thousands in south Asia. The 8.9-magnitude quake hit December 26 off the coast of Indonesia, triggering these extremely large waves that have brought massive flooding, damage and loss of life in the region.

Waves as high as 20 feet have crashed into the coastal areas near the Bay of Benegal. Among the worst affected countries are Sri Lanka and India, as well as Indonesia, Maldives and Thailand. Reports are that thousands of people are missing, and it is possible that the number of dead may tragically rise in the coming days.

International Red Cross and Red Crescent societies in south Asia have begun to mobilize staff and volunteers to affected areas to assist with the immediate needs. Emergency assessment and first-aid teams have already reached some of the affected areas.

You can help by donating to the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Appeals.

I want to wish everyone a safe holiday season - if you're driving some place, take care on the roads. If you're not - enjoy yourselves and keep safe!

For the Greater Good Bracelet Update

The first batch of 160 is gone.  I ordered another 260!  Why so many you ask?  Well, I am about 50 into this order of 260 and if you buy 260 you get a reduced rate per bracelet.
I will keep taking orders and I will bring some to the convention.

The first batch should be arriving on my doorstep any minute and I will get them mailed as soon as I can get them in the envelopes and get to the post office.

For each one of this batch of 260 that we sell it is pure profit for the charity, www.actorsfund.org

If we sell the 260 at 5 each we will have around $1200 for our charity.  I still don't know how much postage is going to end up costing, but everyone is being very generous!

I am so proud of us all!

UNTITLED MARISSA JARET WINOKUR (ABC, New!) - Marissa Jaret Winokur ("Beautiful Girl") is back at the Alphabet as the actress is set to team with writer Dana Klein ("Friends") to develop a new sitcom for the network. The project, which is set up at Sony Pictures Television, would star Winokur as a working class girl who strikes it rich and moves with her husband to an exclusive gated community. ABC has given a script commitment to the project with an unspecified penalty attached. Klein will write the pilot script and executive produce with Winokur and her manager Michael Valeo serving as producers. Winokur spent the past development season attached to the comedy pilot "The Furst Family," which was not picked up to series

  • From lucire.com
    Gary Graham, who studied at the Art Institute of Chicago and trained in costume design, once described his style of design as ‘distressed, rough-edged clothes that are homespun goth....
       According to the designer himself, one of his muses is Xena, Warrior Princess (which shows in his collections) which has a tendency to be mediæval and romantic at the same time. He also proclaimed that he is ‘a poor man's Galliano,’ another aspect that shows in his creations—rebellious and elegant.

It's been suggested I do a sort of flashback page to see how the site has changed over the years....I unearthed the main index page from around January/February 1997 (not the original logo - second version) None of the links on the flashback page work.

The earliest what's new page is June/July 1997. I think it was June that I may have moved the new additions from the main page to it's own page. Unless someone has been downloading my site since then and can tell me I'm going to assume it's June 97.

Hope you all enjoy the flashbacks :)

For the Greater Good Bracelets

Most of us our familiar with the Lance Armstrong bracelet that says LIVESTRONG and shows support for people with cancer.  Well, here’s another chance to show your support for the Xenaverse and help a charity while you are at it! 

 Order a purple silicon wristband, embossed with “FOR THE GREATER GOOD” on it and show your support for Xena!!

I have paid for 160 and all the money raised over the original cost will be given to an AIDS charity.   Since Lucy has been doing so much work with AIDS organizations I thought this would be appropriate. My brother died of AIDS and several of us have lost people we know to this dreaded disease.

 If demand is high and I have to order another bunch we could give the next $$ to Starship or the Kevin Smith foundation.

The cost of the bands are $5.00.  Depending on the cost of supplies and postage I am hoping for about a $400.00 donation.

I am not going to take or make any profit off of these bands.  All monies will go to Charity. 

Many thanks to callistofreak who is sending me some cd mailers and to Ampsearcher who is researching various AIDS charities to give our donation too!  As always many thanks to Mary D for her advice and assistance.

I will be sure to get a band to Sharon for all her care and concern for keeping the Xenaverse alive and well.  I will also give two to Sharon for Lucy and Renee!  Maybe we should give one to Rob?

I have set up a paypal account  xenarocks@peoplepc.com or for those who don’t want to use paypal send me your checks or money orders to

Well time has certainly flown and it's been 8 years since that little site about some episode montages was born.  See what happens when your VCR skills are lacking and you go and check if the right show is taping for a friend? You end up sitting down and watching. Not only that, you get hooked. Then you create a site and it goes on and on and on and on....

Seems like a lifetime ago. Boy what a journey.

Some trivia about ausxip:

  • It was only supposed to be for my montages...something didn't go according to plan.
  • There's been  over 18 million visitors - more but the counter conked out a few times :)
  • I sat down yesterday and worked out that I have spent over 5,000 hours on this site in 8 years...
    Not to mention the hours put in by Judi for the screengrabs, Mesh in taking over when I'm on holidays and redesigning stuff, fixing things, Lucia with her stunning artwork, Sheryl-Lee and her reviews and the many contributors who took the time to scan, transcribe or submit articles, fanfiction or artwork - wow a huge team effort.

I have met so many people that have changed my life and have become lifelong friends - people I would never have known and that is amazing in itself, it reignited my writing muse and other good stuff.

Xena gave me more than I can ever give back.

Thank you to EVERYONE who has kept coming back and to those who have contributed to make this site what it is.

I also want to thank Lucy Lawless (I got hooked because of Lucy and Xena), Renee O'Connor, Rob Tapert, Steve Sears and the rest of the cast and crew of this absolutely groundbreaking show. Without you there wouldn't be Xena and without Xena no AUSXIP and without AUSXIP I would have more time on my hands and get up to other mischief. <g>

Next year AUSXIP celebrates 9 years and Xena 10...who would have thought a show about a warrior woman seeking redemption would have this impact on people.

Now that I've got that out of the way...here is today's update :)

15 December 2004

Since this is the reason I started Ausxip I thought it would be fitting
to create a new montage :)

Double Dare to Screen at Xena Convention
Source: Creation Entertainment

We have a special treat for those coming to THE 10TH ANNIVERSARY OFFICIAL XENA CONVENTION, coming to Burbank, California on January 21-23, 2005!

It's a screening of the documentary DOUBLE DARE. Here's the description on the film which has garnered excellent pre-release reviews...

We are very happy to be screening for our attendees this new documentary! The film follows the story of two stuntwomen. Jeannie Epper, once the stunt double for Linda Carter on the old "Wonder Woman" series. Now in her early 60s, she is a grandmother and still doing stunts for a living. Although she has to fight prejudice against women in the field and assumptions about her age limiting her abilities (which it doesn't!), she refuses to retire. Zoe Bell was the stunt double for Xena: Warrior Princess but when the series ended she found herself out of work. Moving to Los Angeles to pursue a career as a stuntwoman, she meets Jeannie and finds an ally, mentor, and role model. Look for Lucy Lawless in the film too!

Okay -- Renee came, she saw, she conquered! The art dept loved the Xena painting she's doing. She said it was at the basic stage and she wanted to go over it and add more highlights and layers of color, a la the Impressionists. Then she wandered over to my office. I showed her the note I'd put on the web page, she picked up the cactus --- and sat on it! I whipped out my camera and took a photo. Actually, it's Steve Sears' camera, which he loaned me, and he's downloading the image and I should be able to put it up tomorrow. I'm also hoping to have the interview ready to post on the kit 8 web page by Friday with more photos that I took after our conversation. P.S. I stole a chair from the art dept office and we both got to sit comfortably. But thanks to all who offered their laps! (grin)
