30 Best TV Bromances/Gal Pals

EW 29 March 2013

Xena & Gabrielle, Xena: Warrior Princess

Xena was a self-loathing warrior who wasn't a big fan of having company, which made Gabrielle's job that much harder. But after she refused to leave Xena alone, the feisty princess took Gabrielle under her wing. Add in some fan-baiting lesbian undertones, and you had the makings of a beautiful friendship. —Samantha Highfill

AUSXIP Charity Auction Has Ended - Tentative Total $13,383 Raised

Image

The 2013 AUSXIP Charity Auction has ended for another year. Usually the auction brings with it a few surprises - always good but this year, it brought about a few nasty ones as well.

First let's start with the good news: This year's AUSXIP Charity Auction has raised $13,383.06 NZ$ for Starship. That is even when the site was difficult to reach (see below for the bad news about that) but people were still trying!

October 2007 WGN Morning News Performance by Lucy Lawless and Lenny Williams

HappyKT found a recording she made of Lucy's tv appearance during her Chicago 2007 concert promo on the WGN Morning News in Chicago on 4 October 2007.

I delved into the archives and this is what was posted  October 2007 - unfortunately the video from the site has long since disappeared (that is why you need to save videos and images from the original source and keep them because they will disappear as new material is added to sites that don't normally archive their content. Found it? Download it immediately).

HuffPost Green Honouring Female Environmentalists That Have Helped Defend The Planet

March is Women's History Month, and HuffPost Green is honoring female environmentalists that have helped defend the planet.

These women's accomplishments include the national ban of the pesticide DDT, the protection of primates like chimpanzees and gorillas and the fight for both oceans and forests around the globe.

From authors to advocates, actresses and explorers, these women have dedicated their lives -- and sometimes given them -- for the good of the earth.

#8 of 13: Lucy Lawless

Lucy Lawless was arrested during a Greenpeace protest after spending four days aboard an oil-drilling ship in New Zealand last year.
The actress was protesting drilling in the Arctic and was later arrested and charged with trespassing. She was sentenced in February and given 120 hours of community service and ordered to pay a fine of $547, far less than the $545,000 sought by Shell Todd Oil Services.
She called the judgment "a great victory" for environmentalists.

Lucy Video Interview: Lucy Lawless Talks "Xena," Ancient Roman Style, And Corsets

Image634982390590536364

Yahoo The Thread has an interview with Lucy from the Spartacus War of the Damned New York Premiere

New Zealand-born beauty Lucy Lawless is most recognizable as the fierce, butt-kicking, warrior-woman Xena from the '90s television series of the same name, and recently returned to the ancient world in past seasons of "Spartacus: War of the Damned." Unfortunately, her character, Lucretia is not returning for this upcoming season, but The Thread spoke to the gorgeous star to get the low down on what it's like to play powerful characters, the importance of looking good as a Roman woman, and what article of clothing she most dreads as an actress.

What's the first information you consume in the morning?

Emails. I read them on my iPad before I even get out of bed. It’s terrible because you’re not supposed to sleep next to anything electronic, but I don’t think I’m able to unplug.

What do you read or watch or listen to at the breakfast table?

Before the kids come down, I watch gruesome crime TV or some sort of court case that’s going on. When I found myself unexpectedly unemployed a couple of years ago, I went and sat at the high court in Auckland and would just watch trials. It’s a fascination of mine.

What occupies your mind in the car, on the subway, train or bus?

I’m very interested in green issues—mining, offshore drilling—so that occupies a lot of my mind.

Are you a TV junkie, or on an airtime-restricted diet?

I am on an airtime-restricted diet, as are all my family, but since I’m often awake at 3 and 4 in the morning, I sneak in a couple of extra hours of TV—usually on my iPad.

If you’re a couch potato, what do you watch, and how: TV, laptop or tablet?

I’m usually a latecomer. I hate to enter a new relationship with a television show, so sometimes it takes me a couple of seasons before I commit. I’m desperately waiting for Nurse Jackie to come back, and I’m about to start on the second season of Downton Abbey. That’s how I trick myself to go to the gym too—I watch Nurse Jackie on the treadmill.

Before bed, do you bite into a novel, graze on Twitter or fast until morning?

I’m trying to read a lot more; I’m reading some Frederick Forsyth at the moment. I never Twitter—I’ve tried, but I can’t figure out how to leave a message.

Which is more nutritious: print or Web?

I’m going to have to say the Web because it’s the wealth of everything in print, but more accessible.

Give us the skinny on your favorite app.

I like Houzz and Mark on Call, which is about designing space. You can put in specs, make a floor plan and add furniture and everything. I also love the Eurail timetables—if you’re in Europe, that’s an awesome app for getting around.

What’s your biggest digital indulgence?

The thing I’m most embarrassed about is how much Solebon Solitaire I play on my iPad, iPhone, whatever. It’s not even a very advanced app. There’s a game on it called La Belle Lucie, and it’s really rockingly hard.

With such a bloated media universe, how do you cut out the fat?

I think you live very well without the caffeine of social networks. It’s like a gateway drug, and it sucks up a lot of your time. I have a really rich life with real human beings, so I don’t feel like I’m suffering by not being on those things.

Shell Drop Arctic Oil Drilling Plans – Greenpeace Response

Image634977142612328430

The following is Greenpeace's response to the news that Shell has decided to put their plans to drill in the Arctic off for this year.

GREENPEACE PRESS RELEASE:

Shell Drop Arctic Oil Drilling Plans – Greenpeace Response
01 March 2013

Shell’s multi-billion dollar Arctic investment lies in tatters today, and so does the company’s reputation.

Responding to today’s news that oil giant Shell have ditched plans to drill in the Arctic this year, Bunny McDiarmid, executive director of Greenpeace, said:

“Shell’s multi-billion dollar Arctic investment lies in tatters today, and so does the company’s reputation.

“They massively underestimated the challenges posed by drilling off Alaska, and pushed on regardless, determined to spark a new Arctic oil rush. The huge global movement that sprang up to oppose them started right here in New Zealand, when a small group of volunteers boarded a Shell-contracted drilling ship in Taranaki, to try and stop it heading for the Arctic.

“Shell have dropped plans to drill this year, but when they try to head to the Arctic again, the millions of people who have backed the campaign to make this beautiful and special place off-limits for oil drilling will be waiting for them.”
