Andrew Young NY Marathon Update


northshoretimes011009-pic.jpg
Andrew has raised $26,296.21 which is just phenomenonal! His marathon partner Vicki has raised $19,604.93 and they are both set for the 1 NOvember 2009 NY Marathon.

This is the latest from his donation page

STOP PRESS: If you want to track my progress (or lack of) online at the ING NY Marathon on Nov 1, my bib number is 41916.

This is my very public mid-life crisis. I figure if I'm going to attempt my first marathon in honour of Starship, it might as well be in the Big Apple to be witnessed by millions of encouraging onlookers.

I'm running with my mate Vikki Maclean and it's true we made a pact to do New York last year - and yes - after a glass of wine (or two). This my have fuelled our courage (and foolishness) but we've nonetheless stuck to our word.

We've also seen the light and have banished alcohol (well, almost) in favour of energy drinks, 5am daily wake ups to train (in the pitch black and cold) and ongoing strategising to ensure we reach the finish line. My coach Tim Morrison's unfailingly there with stop-watch and some evil course for me to complete each morning, when my body's just craving sleep and peace.

Luckily Lucy Lawless, our Starship Foundation ambassador and my good mate, is sometimes literally alongside us to keep the motivation going. She's also behind us as a very generous supporter for our run - thanks Lucy.

AUSXIP Charity Auction Site

Hi folks,

After the AUSXIP Hacker Meltdown back in May, the auction site went kaboom and I had to bring up the backup ausxip auction site. After a short hiatus, it's now back to the AUSXIP Charity site with some new software and hopefully more secure site.

Click here to view

This is brand new so you will need to register again. The next auction is going to be Adrienne Wilkinson's Official Fan Club Charity Sale which is due in Mid November.

After the OAWFC Charity Sale, the next scheduled auction will be the huge AUSXIP Annual Auction to raise money for Starship and the ROC Outreach Fund. This will be in March 2010.

Many thanks!

Lucy in The Media This Week


Here are some Lucy mentions from around the net this week:

A Conversation with Zoe Bell
FANGORIA (blog)
JA: You and Lucy Lawless are actually starring together in a new film, ANGEL OF DEATH. Tell us what we can expect from that project. ...



The following exerpt is from a longer article about Liberty Media who have a stake in Starz who are producing Spartacus.

lucretia-spartacuspromo.jpg

Spartacus, slated to air in January 2010, has generated the most buzz . It stars Xena: Warrior Princess and Battlestar Galactica actress Lucy Lawless and one of its executive producers is Spider-Man director Sam Raimi.

"Spartacus could be a franchise for us," Starz executive vice president and chief financial officer Glenn Curtis said at the investors meeting.

Curtis said screenings for the Spartacus series sold out at MIPCOM in Cannes, France, this month and that Starz sales executives took more than 200 meetings about the series at that television syndication bazaar.

Starz has already made plans for a home video release (on Starz's own Anchor Bay entertainment), a video game and a motion comic tied to the series.

"All of this is to extend the reach and the frequency of Spartacus, to make people aware," Curtis said.

Lucy Lawless Woos College Boys - Sign On Campaign

The Official Sign On Blog has an article about Lucy's trip to Wellington College. From the report it sure looks like Lucy has added the young men to her fan base (welcome boys!)


"Boys, may I introduce to you....Miss Lucy Lawless!"

It's possible that the assembly hall of nearly 1,000 young males had never had such an exciting visitor. The Warrior Princess herself had taken the stage at Wellington College. She had the youth of today; the leaders of tomorrow, in the palm of her hand....

She lectured them about shower length. "I mean, come on, you're clean after five minutes. Showers aren't for entertainment boys!" Silence, then giggles. Then it was difficult to get them all to focus again.

HQ Lucy Photos from Auckland Peace March

  The World March For Peace and Non Violence site has posted a HQ photo of Lucy at the Auckland Peace Heritage Walk on 27 September 2009. The event was a rehearsal for the start of the World March For Peace and Non Violence which will begin on 2 October 2009 in New Zealand and circle the globe and end in the Andes in January.

Lucy marched under a Chinese-style dragon made from the sails of the Greenpeace ship Rainbow Warrior -- sunk by French agents in Auckland in 1985 -- in the Auckland Peace Heritage Walk around central Auckland.

The site says:

"Lucy Lawless is the internationally renowned actor born in New Zealand. She is widely known for her role as Xena in the hit TV series "Xena: Warrior Princess". Since then she has starred in many films. Lucy is currently campaigning with Greenpeace for the Climate Change awareness Sign-On Petition."


On the picture: Lucy Lawless with Keith Locke MP, Mayors for Peace Vice-President Bob Harvey and NZ Coordinator of the World Peace March Alyn Ware.

Lucy At Sign On Darby Barbie Event in Auckland

Lucy was out and about today at helping kick off a nationwide fund-raising drive to help pay Prime Minister John Key's way to the UN climate talks in Copenhagen in December, with a "Darby Barbie" in Auckland.


 


The official Sign On Site has the latest with some gorgeous new Lucy photos!

"Some say I'm pretty handy on the barbie after two years working as a BBQ sales technician, so I thought I'd prove this in order to help get Mr. John Key to the ball," said Mr Darby, from outside the Warehouse store in Newmarket, where his sausage sizzle took place. Other Sign On ambassadors, including actress Keisha Castle-Hughes and Lucy Lawless, also took up tongs.

Lucy said in her blog today in part:

New Lucy Message on Official Lucy Site

Lucy has posted a new blog about several things including The Lucy Lawless Feel The Love Day (she mentioned that we should lose the Lucy Lawless bit from it). Nahhhhh....

I HTML clipboardwholeheartedly disagree with this on a mega scale but that's just my opinion - the whole thing was started because of Lucy's generous spirit and frankly I think it should continue to be called Lucy Lawless Feel The Love Day (Week). It's a special week for Lucy fans to show her how much she means to us.

In part Lucy's message said about the Sign On Promotion today (aka Darby's Barbie - see the AUSXIP Lucy Lawless Events Page for more info about that and pictures)

AUSXIP Lucy Lawless Site Updates


I've been doing some behind the scenes stuff to the site to get it all nice and updated. The following sections have been updated:

  • The Lucy Lawless E Profile Page has been reorganised. The video clips which were offline are back online and are now viewable online through the AUSXIP YouTube Channel
  • Lucy's Show Reel link has been added to the About Lucy Page.
  • Reorganised the About Lucy Page which is now a directory to make it alot easier to find the ever expanding sections and subsites of AUSXIP Lucy Lawless
  • Lucy Lawless FAQ
  • Lucy Lawless Videos - that's now organised with the latest new updates to make it easier to find the latest videos. I will be using the AUSXIP YouTube Channel more rather than making videos available for download (saves on the bandwidth for the site)
  • The Premieres and Events subsite is now two sections - the main Events Page (aka Out and About) and the Social Awareness and Charity Subsites. Lucy lends her name to a great many social awareness / charity events (ie Sign On, PAW Justice, Starship etc) and having the two sections makes it easier to find the charity event or other events.

Lucy Pictures From Around The Net

This is a roundup of new/old pics of Lucy that I happened to find recently that were new to me. The larger sized images are linked to the sites where they were originally found.


Auckland Actors Lucy CV. Lucy's acting CV has been updated (although it only goes up to 2007 with Football Wives). The thing that is most interesting is the new pic. It seems to be part of the collection from the photos that were sold through her fan club but her hair appears lighter so it might be a new photoshoot (around 2007) or it just looks that way. I haven't seen it before.

Another piece is that they haven't fixed the movie title for Eurotrip. It's still called The Ugly Americans. Click on the image for the larger scan.

Xena Episode Stills - Season 4 Ep 21 Ides of March


The Ides of March - one of my all time favourite episodes. Season 4 episode 21 - scanned two high res images that were initially from my collection. They were autographed by Lucy and Renee and sold at one of the AUSXIP Auctions. Click here to view all the images from this episode

Log Line:
Callisto returns to tempt Xena, as Caesar plans to declare himself emperor.

Multimedia:
Montage #1 #2 #3 #4 #5 | Review | Screengrabs

A little bit of Trivia: Lucy was pregnant with Julius when this was being filmed. During the filming of Endgame or Ides (can't remember which but I think it was Endgame), a 60 minutes crew (from Australia - which airred April 1999) interviewed Lucy and she cryptically alluded to the pregnancy but didn't reveal it...it was a few days later after this interviewed airred that the news of Lucy's pregnancy became public.

I'm not even going to try and explain how I remember this 10 year old interview...I do remember thinking at the time of the interview that Lucy was being unusually coy and wondered how she had broken a rib (I think that's what it was) that the fandom hadn't heard about when Charles Wooley (the reporter and believe it or not I still remember the guy's name...someone cue the Twilight Zone theme) asked her to do a flip or something equally as silly. 

I have a very odd memory...this one must have stuck in the groove instead of going through the swiss cheese holes in my noggin.
