Lucy's On Top Of The....Rainbow Warrior 2 Crowsnest and Singing...

The Rainbow Warrior 2 was in town (Auckland) and Lucy paid her a visit and sang a little ditty while she was in the crowsnest. What is a crowsnest?

Thank you Wikipedia: A crow's nest is a structure in the upper part of the main mast of a ship or a structure that is used as a lookout point.. This position ensured the best view for lookouts to spot approaching hazards, other ships, or land.

Angela Barnett talks with six Kiwi leaders and luminaries on busting down barriers.

Lucy Lawless (MNZM) is known as much for her Greenpeace work as for her role in And she doesn’t care which title she has: actor or activist. “I’m both. I do the best thing based on whatever’s happening.” Both roles, she says, require empathy.

But breaking rules doesn’t come naturally to Lawless — even if her name is ideal for the role. “I’m not a lawbreaker — quite the opposite. My husband woke up one morning and there was his wife on top of an oil rig on CNN and he thought I was filming Top of the Lake. She admits people don’t like it when she steps out of line. “My family thought I was being a rabble-rouser but they’ve all come around. If you’re a bolshy woman and appear to be breaking the rules, people give you a lot of stick.”

ImageShe’s been a supporter of Greenpeace since she was 17 and a climate ambassador since 2009. But Lawless doesn’t just attach her star power to a cause, she gets in the roiling Arctic Ocean in a rubber boat to protest Norwegian drilling or chains herself to ships along with fellow activists. She’s been arrested. She’s completed community time and says she stepped up her activism after being “touched by the reality of climate catastrophe being stuck in Hurricane Katrina”.

While filming in New Orleans they got the “category five — get out” warning. “It was total gridlock; there was no information and there was this thunderhead of the cyclone, like a mushroom cloud, coming at us. The horror of not being able to move made me realise that shit was getting serious. I never wanted my kids to be in that situation.

“Once you’ve been touched by it, you’re duty-bound to do something. We activists try to educate people why catastrophic climate events are happening more frequently and devastatingly. People don’t care. They care about celebrities’ babies but they don’t love the world enough.”

Lawless admits she never realised how much she’s benefited from all the suffragettes’ struggles. “There was a campaign in the 80s, ‘girls can do anything’. I was the first generation who was born into that idea. In my house it was reinforced by my parents’ expectations and to my shame I’ve taken it for granted. I haven’t helped the cause, except to live a certain way.

“I have a daughter and two sons and I don’t want any of them to be left out of any opportunity. A healthy society is when everyone is enfranchised.”

AUSXIP Charity Auction Update!

Hey guys have a guess what I was doing on the 7th September? It was STARSHIP AUCTION SPREADSHEET TIME! Starship sent over their spreadsheet of payments.

We had some issues with the donation form on Starship. It kept crashing. There is a reason the Starship donation form fell over - the Xenaverse crashed another server :) (the donation form was a little iffy lately whether it went through ok or it stalled but we're getting that sorted out BUT apparently, everyone has figured it out) Does this count as a the Xenaverse crashing another server? I'm calling it - we did :)

Good news: $11K of the winning bids have already been donated and we are waiting on the last remained $2K to come in. Saying that Starship is overjoyed by this outcome is an understatement.

Happy Birthday Xena - AUSXIP Charity Auction Totals!


Happy Xenaversary everyone!!!

Auction Update:

With the support of the Xenaverse, actors such as Renee O'Connor, Lucy Lawless, Adrienne Wilkinson and many others, we have raised (tentative total, not counting any additional donations) $13,293.97 NZD. That brings our combined total for all auctions held since 2006 to $198,293!

Just an amazing number. Xena's legacy has been to help others and to do it for the Greater Good. On her 23rd Anniversary, the Xenaverse has come together and created something special. Without your support, this auction would not have gotten off the ground in 2006 and continued since then. 

I have informed Starship that a whole lot of money is heading their way! THANK YOU everyone who supported, who bid and who won! BLESS YOU ALL! 

Thank you also goes to my team who are EXTRAORDINARY. Without them, it would be impossible to have this auction.
 

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO OUR WARRIOR AND HER BARD! 23 Years ago a show was born and changed our lives!
I will have more to say about this once the Starship Auction is over....
