    LEXXian Life On-line

    Hey Mandara k,

    remember when you said in another thread:

    as a newsperson we got to go where the news is

    so whaddaya think of being Editor in Chief of the official daily on-line reports from Dragon Con? I’m applying public pressure here to make you say yes:twisted:. You already came up with a great title–LEXXianLife (the D*C edition) and with story ideas:

    I would be interested in some little blurbs about LEXX fans; they seem to be an interesting group….. Something like Know Your LEXXians…..
    And asking the tough questions like….. fave and least LEXX ep; how did you find the show…. why it’s liked……
    and
    I think it might be interesting to put names to faces ….

    And we’ll also do gossip, descriptions of the parties & forums, and more gossip, and we’ll have photos and snarky comments about other people’s costumes and some really juicy gossip (as long as you leave me out of it!)…. everything those who can’t go want to know about!!

    If you do it, I’ll find you a fedora with a Press ticket on it!:P

    Seriously though–I’m bringing my laptop, it’ll be easy to do a daily posting. And anyone else who wants to volunteer to be a reporter please join in–just let us know (on the thread or with a PM.) You’ll have fun doing it, and we’ll have more fun reading it!

    All right I’ll do it; but it will be LEXXians I will focus on; not those that have been interviewd all the time, agreed?

    So as you ogle the stars…. watch out…… we’ll be ogling you!!!! 😯

    I think it’s an excellent idea; did i come up with it…. that’s a new experience 😳

    Thanks Elmey; you gave me a reason to go; i was really vacillating between whether I really wanted to make the trip. It will be fun to talk to LEXXians and hold my tongue as to remain unbiased and fair.

    Let me know your ideas!!!

    😀 COOL! We’ll add pix where we can as well.

    … and hold my tongue as to remain unbiased and fair.

    This I gotta see–worth the trip in and of itself. 😈

    Let me know your ideas!!!

    I’m thinking about it, but it’s your baby. If anyone else has ideas, please throw them out here as well.

    There’s just one thing I’m gonna insist on: No 8:00 AM updates from my room! This rag gets published at noon (more or less).

    Mandara K steeples her fingers together and then jumps up and starts pacing the runner of carpet of her offce. letting her gaze fall on the portraits of her predecessors; legendary in the UnCon reporting business. Names such as Del and Frey as well as Camelyn, FX, and Black Cloud make her feel the upcoming task too overwhelming. Her eyes then settle on the large portrait of the Sad man himself in its gilded frame over the mantle; and a slight furrow creases her brow as she notices a space on the wall to her right. Oh, I forgot Storm is having his portrait redone wearing the Giggy apron he won in the raffle.”

    She stares intently at the fire burning in the hearth and lifts he eyes to that all familar fresco of The Divine Beans extending their 3 fingers towards a hooded Divine Shadow. ” How can I possibly do this task in the manner it has been done inthe past?”she mutters under her breath.

    She then stops midstride; quietly moves to her chair; withdraws a cigarillo from a box ; deftly lights it and leans back. With that faraway expression she often gets when the gears churn in her head; her mouth playd a Mona Lisa smile as the blue smoke dances above her head . ” Yes, she whispered, “but I think I’ll need help.”

    Please help with your input; and if anyone is going to Vegas I need reports. I think we should approach Pinhead and ask him to write up a blurb. And we can get started on the “Know Your LEXXians” segment early. You know get some primary players out of the way first; or we can continue that beyond DC. I mean that LEXX,com thread “What Do You Look LIke” is ever popular. I just think it’s better to know a bit about the person behind the mask and not those profiles. Yeah, profiles are okay but they are so cold and impersonal; they don’t ask the “good stuff.”

    Moi? perky before noon? I think not. It will be enough to get me to the parade at 10am 😛 I’ll start writing Thursday when I hit town so it can go in on Friday. And, if i don’t show for Saturday’s party then someone can do the work for me. Well, as all reporters are….. we are not always popular with the ” man” or as the case may be “mans” so i will concede the floor to our stars on Saturday so they will feel comfortable imteracting with the masses. So, Elmey my love, Saturday is all you. I will catch up with you later on Saturday night for duct tape watching at the lower bar possibly.

    I’ll probably go out on Atlanta Saturday night; but I’ll hook uo with yous on Friday nght, capeche? That’s a good girl! Now go and get me some coffee. 😯 😉 😈

    Sure sweetie, since you are chummy with BD you can cover that angle, but keep your eyes open and don’t let ’em sweet talk you; i want facts not propaganda… ya think you can handle it, kid?

    ” And it’s yes, m’am, if you want to know what gender I be.”

    Now go get “em!

    WHAT HAVE I DONE? 😯

    Please help with your input; and if anyone is going to Vegas I need reports. I think we should approach Pinhead and ask him to write up a blurb.

    I can post a note to him on lexx.com and ask him to write up his adventures for LEXXian Life. I was going to put up something there anyway regarding the D*C reports, asking for input and volunteers. I’ll try to do it tonight some time unless you have a chance to do it earlier–in which case please do so.

    And we can get started on the “Know Your LEXXians” segment early. You know get some primary players out of the way first; or we can continue that beyond DC. I mean that LEXX,com thread “What Do You Look LIke” is ever popular.

    Great Idea–having an on-going LEXXian Life thread. You figure out how you want to get the dirt on everyone and who you want to start with. You could *cough cough* use yourself as a guinea pig 😈 (elmey scoots out of the way)

    And, if i don’t show for Saturday’s party then someone can do the work for me. Well, as all reporters are….. we are not always popular with the ” man” or as the case may be “mans” so i will concede the floor to our stars on Saturday so they will feel comfortable imteracting with the masses.

    WE SHALL SEE. You have never seen me do real arm twisting. The star interaction will be fine, press or no press. 8)

    Now go and get me some coffee.

    In your dreams. There will be flunkies. 😉

    I will help if I can, will do articles, interviews, whatever…..

    Great! We need all the help we can get. Are you any good with a camera by any chance?

    Bebop, and whoever else is interested, let’s come up with some tentative story ideas. We’ll run them by mandara either here on the board or via PM so that she can figure out what will work best for the daily reports. We might even think about doing some longer pieces for the final wrapup after everything is over.

    Definitely we’ll all hook up on Friday BEFORE the mixer Madame Editor? …so that you know who’s working for ya. I think this’ll be right up there with the legendary reports of yesteryear!

    elmey,
    I’m definitely up for the challenge of writing/typing in daily reports from there; in fact, I’m thinking about re-activating another username on lexx.com & having her be a `roving reporter’; however, for here, I’m definitely up for the challenge. Also, it’ll give another perspective of what’s going on; I may even write about `Star Trek, V’ & others that I’ve been to.

    mandara k,
    Since, I’ll be coming in Thursday evening, I can & am able to help Friday Noontime & thereafter; it’ll be an honour to assist you in any way.

    Lexxians, especially Love Slaves, Unite,

    We will be taking this discussion off line for a while and on to PM as to keep it unbiased and doggone it …..it’s mysterious… and it keeps things spontaneous; nothing like the truth that comes out when people are unprepared.

    Elmey, you will need to approah a lexx.com BB persona for a Vegas report; try to pick someone who does not hanker for a “star” overly much or, sorta like me do the other swing to the pendulum, that is, not favorable to them. One extreme or the other… well that colors what they write and we don’t get a full picture of what’s going on. May be Mantrid can write us a blurb; I saw he was going; or Pinhead. Or have whoever wants to try there hand at prose post here. Make sure they can be objective or we will miss parts of what’s going on.

    What’s more my baby is that segment “Know Your LEXXians” I have questions made up to kick it off that even I had problems with on the fly. The important question is always why; in this segment i want to know why they like a character; or an ep; I want to see the gear smoke filling a room of LEXXians as they put on their Stan thinking hats and tell us about themselves. Let’s start with Mod’s; heads of the fan clubs like Cat if we can get it; and then mix it with regular posters. we will try to get everyone identified; like the LEXX encyclopedia I heard tell about. So we may have to blow the moth balls off of some LEXXians ( get it) 🙄 they should get some credit for their work no matter if their site is gone or the LEXX they fashioned out of Beer cans has long been returned for another 12 pack. I want to hear it.

    I mean who da thunk we’d be still talking about a show 14 months after it ended? With a little elbow grease; and some pulling together LEXXians will not only be known as dysfunctional heretics of the sci-fi universe; but as a merry band of outcasts that thumb their nose at convention because we have the freedom to do that.
    The Beans taught us that and like baby hortas we learn well… ( sorry for the Star Trek reference :oops:)

    So ladies and gents; PM details; reply to this thread if you want to be involved.

    And thanks to Elmey, Trini, Bebopbel and Jhevz for their help to this point; And Jhevz your names are fine the way they are; we don’t need to see another one for now but that’s incredible that you have an imagination to think up names like that.

    Let’s get to work people!!!!!

    Welcome on board Jhevz! You don’t need to change names–I like the one you’re using here and I have a hard enough time remembering my own, much less another new one 😉

    It might be interesting to know what the Trekkies are up to 8) If you’re willing to go among them, sure, let us know what’s going on there.

    OK Boss, off-line for a while now.

    There is room for lots of different reports. The Official Lexx Fan Club could use the fresh content.

    As you know, our own HDS wrote up a nice little exclusive piece for Mega Con for the Offical Fan Club site, complete with pictures. I am going to going to twist a few arms to get them a Dragon Con report, but…. I would welcome the chance to get Cat a Lexx Vegas report.

    If anyone is going to Lexx Vegas and wants to do one, that would be great. Going with a camera, but not too keen on report writing? Not a problem. Several ways to approach that.

    Send a few pictures and a report written as badly as you like…. I have edited theBrothers stuff, yours CANNOT be worse.

    Send a few pictures and a few breif paragraphs… We will wing it from there.

    Send a few pictures and a description of them (Pic one is Joe fan with Xenia ect…) and I can make arrangements for someone to call you to get the story and then write it up.

    Hey Cat, do you want some pics for the site of these cons? Or just the Pics with the reports?

    Excellent! This has got to me I am absolved of all reporting, and responsibility then. Some body else want it….it’s all yours. I’ll head back to plan one then and work on priorities. Elmey, I pass the hat to you…. or whoever wants it;

    Thanks HDS and Frey!!!!! 😀

    We might do that LEXXian segment after the CONS; wouldn’t want to steal any thunder.

    You made me very happy; I don’t have to go anywhere now I can leave whatever happens to you guys and if it gets crunch time I don’t even have to show any more! Big sigh of relief!!!! Sure I’ll miss seeing you guys but I got to concentrate on RL for a while. Take all the pics and stories you want I’ll read them and we will see what kind of interest these CONS generate for any other plans in the future.

    Absolved??? How so? There are many, many places that need reports, from all different views. I don’t think Elmey will let you out of it that easy. 😀

    elmey,
    Thanks for your post & insight; I’m glad you don’t want me to change my name; here I won’t, because I only use Jhevz; I meant on lexx.com, in fact, that’s probably what I should of said. I’ll probably posting on both boards using this name, I’m just trying to make up my mind for lexx.com.
    I didn’t go to last month’s meeting, mainly because it was just too hot to go; I’m hoping either this coming month or in September, after I come back from Dragon*Con; I’ll still keep you informed.

    Lexxian to Lexxian,
    Jhevz 😉

    PP: ok mandara k, I’ll give a PM when I can till the time comes.

    ❓ 😕 😯

    Did I miss something? We need you for LEXXian Life On Line; that’s for us here, it’s your ideas and they work best for Saddy’s.

    Since the request for the fan club site was made here, let’s figure out what can be done for them that will complement LEXXian Life not compete with it–and then we’ll see who’s gonna work on it.

    There’s not enough time to make special arrangements for the Vegas reports–let’s just hope someone writes up their adventures and posts them. But we have time to get Dragon Con right. I think we should try to start the LEXXian segments–it will whet people’s appetites for the Con Reports.

    Who needs a RL? 😕

    Okay kiddies this is MY bent on LEXXian LIfe. It is a very open, lose association…. a Labor of Luuuve; for you guys. It’s not neccessarily a place to praise any one person or group of peeps though they will be repped. So I don’t care if your there for Stan, Kai, Xev, Bunny Giggy or Lyekka and yes even the well shaped head 790; as fans YOU are star here! The LEXX cast have their own site; we have Sad’s and LEXX.com but LEXXian LIfe is more for info and for swapping our LEXX war stories.

    And here’s one for you! I got the madcap idea for the title from the movie Airplane you know when the nun is reading Boy’s Life and the boy is reading Nun’s Life?

    Yeah, sorta like that is my idea; we read about the cast and crew when info is there thus if they have nothing to do on those cold snowy nights up North and the Moosehead runs dry and as their huddled forms quake from cold; by shear force of will in an attempt to keep their numb fingers warm… they can log on and read about us. 🙄 or if they choose… with a laptop on a yacht in Cancun between reeling in marlins or dark-eyed native beauties. 😉

    Let me know what you think!

    BTW, I think it’s time we got started on the DC LEXX INvasion Countdown sponsored of course by LEXXian Life and the makers of Viagra… oh sorry …. we need no steekin’ adverts. Since I’m the idiot….. ah person… that thought of this sideshow attraction I’m gonna go first but I’m a little rusty so I got to go back and review where it started for me and that was with IWHS. Ya believe I have to rewatch it? I hang my head in shame 😳 😥 I do recall a line of Brian’s though …it’s the famous “proh-jects:” line; I still love how that was said; it makes me smile 😆

    Off to start my proh-ject with the proh-ject line!!! I love that line!!!

    I agree, mandara k,
    That sounds like a great idea; the Lexx Invasion will soon commense a few weeks from now; I’m so excited, I can’t wait till then. Wow, all of the main Lexx cast will be there, along with Giggy, Bunny & Lyekka; how cool is that; 8) . I can’t wait till that time comes & meet every one of them, including some Lexx fans that weren’t there last yr.
    I’ll see you in a few weeks & have a great Summer.

    Lexxian to Lexxian,

    I’m pretty handy with a camera. Nothing over the top mind you, but I rarely use a flash and can get some interesting up close and sneaky shots. It makes my sister crazy, she hates having her pic taken. I also have a decent digital.

    ALLRIGHT! You are now the “Inquiring Photographer” 😀 (or at least part of the team)
    Bring the digital–we now have a host site and the means to upload pics from D*C.

    Mandara and I have been batting ideas for some segments around–“Inquiring Photographer” being one of them. Everyone’s who’s volunteered so far, I’m going to send you info on what we’ve come up with over the next few days–just haven’t had time yet. And if you guys have other/better ideas, they’re more than welcome. This isn’t like work, we want you to have fun! 😉
