Starship Spring Clean Auction Item - Argo Fibreglass Horse Designed by Lucy

Image634819943262070313Starship and AUSXIP have teamed up to host the Lucy Lawless donated items for the annual Starship Spring Clean. This is open to international visitors. Starship Spring Clean is a unique fundraising campaign that is held in September every year to raise money for the Starship Foundation in New Zealand.

AUCTION LINK - WILL GO LIVE ON 01 SEPTEMBER

Argo is a full size fibreglass horse that was painted by Lucy in support of Starship Children's Hospital. Aptly named 'Argo' after Xena's horse, Lucy was inspired by the ancient Egyptian faience sculptures of the waterhorse or hippo, most fearsome of all African animals.

"I was intrigued by the idea of a 'water-horse'," Lucy says. "It is a very serene piece and would look good in a garden setting or close to water. It made me feel good to have it around and I wrote words up the legs which seem to me, the components of joy."

The words written up the legs are "love" "peace" and "gratitude". and "Argo Starship Warrior Princess"

Lucy Lawless: Five Days In Bangladesh

Lucy Lawless takes us on an exotic and compelling journey as she travels to Bangladesh and meets some of the world's poorest children and their families

TVNZ Heartland
Sunday 23 September 2012
7:30 pm

You can find out more about the documentary on the AUSXIP Lucy Lawless Five Days in Bangladesh Page 

This is one hell of a moving documentary. Yes it tugs at the heartstrings but it also shows how privileged we all are - even if we don't have a lot of money or materially own alot of possessions but we do have enough and after seeing this documentary, I think we all live like queens and kings. This documentary will upset some people - especially in videoclip #3 - Lucy meets a family that has not benefited (yet) from the World Vision program. It is truly heartbreaking. Please be aware that it will hit you in the gut (as it supposed to do). Lucy lost it completely in this clip.

You can also read Lucy's own account of her journeys

NZ Woman's Weekly 30 January 2006 Lucy Lawless - My Life Changing Journey. Her career is bubbling along with a regular guest role on Battlestar Galactica and plans to record an album. But for Lucy Lawless, last year's highlight was a trip to visit the child whose life she helped save. This article has been written by Lucy about her visit to Bangladesh and the impact it had on her.

Lucy Tweets About The Possession New Rob Tapert Movie

Image634812154282646485Lucy has tweeted about Rob's new movie called The Possession. You can follow all the news about this movie on AUSXIP Rob Tapert - The Possession newspage - it looks to be a seriously scary movie based on a true story.


The Possession
is opening on August 31st.

Based on a true story, the film is the story of how one family must unite in order to survive the wrath of an unspeakable evil.

Clyde (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) and Stephanie Brenek (Kyra Sedgwick) see little cause for alarm when their youngest daughter Em becomes oddly obsessed with an antique wooden box she purchased at a yard sale. But as Emâ€â„¢s behavior becomes increasingly erratic, the couple fears the presence of a malevolent force in their midst, only to discover that the box was built to contain a dibbuk, a dislocated spirit that inhabits and ultimately devours its human host.

The film is directed by Ole Bornedal (Nightwatch), written by Juliet Snowden & Stiles White, and produced by horror master Sam Raimi along with Robert Tapert and J.R. Young.

Lucy was mentioned previously as being offered the role of Tammy in the show but had to turn it down due to her Spartacus role.

'I've read in the past that you love comedies. Is there a comedy you'd like to guest star on?
Oh, I love "Parks and Rec."

It's amazing.
Love that show. Love anything to do with Larry David.

Right, you did "Curb Your Enthusiasm."
Yeah, I've done that, but you can just never get enough of that guy. He's so unusual and so -- I find him really charming.

Do you have a "Parks and Rec" character already created in your head?
Well, they did come to me about playing one of the ex-wives of --

Really!? Tammy!
Yeah, and I couldn't because I was doing "Spartacus." I would have loved to have done that, but I had a very good excuse not to. [Laughs.]

As great as Patricia Clarkson was as Tammy 1, can you imagine Lawless going toe-to-toe with Amy Poehler's Leslie Knope? The Tammy ship may have sailed, but let's hope Mike Schur and the "Parks and Recreation" crew find a way to get Lawless to Pawnee.

No Drill No Spill Campaign Greenpeace Press Release: No Summer Drilling in NZ

Image634794908208828125

On 15 November 2011 Lucy urged everyone to send a message to the NZ Government in regard to saying no to deep sea oil drilling. Click here to view Here's an update from Greenpeace concerning deep sea drilling which was due to start in the summer:

PRESS RELEASE:
Risky summer drilling programme canned; Government must change economic agenda

Auckland 1/8/12: Greenpeace is hailing the news of the cancellation of an exploratory deep sea drilling operation - set for this summer - as the clearest sign yet that the Government must give up its single-minded fossil fuels agenda, in favour of winning New Zealand a place in the global clean energy race.

Anadarko, which had a 25 per cent shareholding in the well beneath the Deepwater Horizon - which exploded and sank in the Gulf of Mexico in 2010 - announced early this morning (NZ time) in an investor relations teleconference that it wouldn’t be bringing a deep sea rig to New Zealand until the end of 2013. The company was originally planning to start drilling at several sites off the Raglan, Canterbury and Otago coasts in the summer of 2011; that was then delayed to this October.

Its expedition was to be the first in a wave of exploratory deep sea drilling programmes, planned by Shell, Petrobras, and others.

“These constant delays send a clear message; that rather than sitting on its hands, waiting for the dangerous deep sea oil industry to come, the Government should be looking to secure truly sustainable prosperity, by capitalising on our world-beating clean energy know-how,” says Simon Boxer, Greenpeace NZ Senior Climate Campaigner.

The value of the global clean energy sector, last year alone, has been put at US $250 billion (1).

“It’s a fact that the exploratory phase is the most dangerous of the entire deep sea drilling process,” Boxer says.

“For that reason, it’s great news for New Zealanders, our beaches and our economy that Anadarko isn’t coming this year.

“Anadarko says that it hasn’t been able to find a rig. That’s rubbish. If they wanted to be here, they would be. The company has contracted numerous rigs for exploration around the world.

“What they are not saying is that while the deep water of the Gulf of Mexico is challenge enough, New Zealand’s exposed waters and limited infrastructure means that the technical challenges of drilling here - relative to what they think they will find, simply don’t add up,” Boxer says.

“This news comes a week after Greenpeace, and a host of other groups, delivered a 140,000-signature strong petition to Parliament, that demanded a clean energy future.

After the Deepwater Horizon disaster, an area twice the size of the North Island was closed to fishing in the Gulf of Mexico.

“A similar disaster here would devastate our economy, scaring off tourists, closing fisheries, and doing permanent damage to our clean, green reputation, which sells so many New Zealand products overseas,” says Boxer.

“It took almost three months to shut down the well below the Deepwater Horizon. It would take far longer to control a blowout here, especially as it could take months for another rig - most likely from South East Asia – to arrive in order to drill a relief well,” Boxer says.

“The company has been complaining about New Zealand’s proposed regulations in the media, which is standard operating procedure for the oil industry. But the reality is that in some respects, drilling in New Zealand has been even more poorly regulated than in Nigeria. That won’t change much at all with the EEZ bill that’s going through Parliament at the moment.

“At any rate, no amount of regulations will ever stop an oil spill,” Boxer says.
