    Erm, if I give myself 24 hours to behave, can I be a member of the Kai visual appreciation society?

    OK, now I’m majorly confused. I thought they would be filming until the Spring of 2002?

    I also had heard that they were just taking a hiatus in October.

    How mis-informed am I?

Of course, just drinking this stuff could kill you, or make you go blind.

    I’d like to know how those silver fangs were done.
    -Were the fangs uncomfortable?
    -Did they have a tendancy to fall out?
    -Did they have to cut for her to take them out before she would bite?
    -Were they collapsable?
    -And is that hair as uncomfortable as it looks?
    -How is that spirally thing in her hair attached?
    -Did she have to duck in doorways because of the height of the hair?
    -How did she get the role of Vlad?
    -Has she done work for Salter before?
    -What other projects has she done?
    -Had she heard of Lexx before the role?
    -What did she think of the script when she read it?
    -Does she get claustrophobic in that cyropod? (I think I would)
    -Has she seen the finished episode of Vlad, with the special effects, and what did she think of it?

    OK, I’m done for now, I’m sure that’s enough questions to scare off anyone. Heh.

    Thanks BC. I did find an article, I think I posted a link to it, that I really thought was excellent. (no sarcasm there) It discussed the things he did in office(including laws passed), and the troubles he had, and I got a good reminder of what I was looking for.

    I think it’s safe to say that you both have differences, and that you may not see each other’s point of view.
    Besides, the original observations were just friendly ones, and I was just interested on how things were going over there, I think I’ve got the picture now, so let’s settle with both administration’s being pretty shabby and leave it and that.
    Let’s get back to the reason we are all here…Lexx, I came to this group because you are all so friendly, let’s keep it that way!!!
    Squishy


    Sweetie, that’s fine by me.

    I wasn’t being sarcastic, Aleck, I know it can be hard to tell when reading the written word. I honestly, honestly was having a hard time to remember what he did, which is why I was honestly asking specifics. My significant other has been laid of from his job in 2000, us having no scent of lay offs pending. So including motherhood and stress, this old brain is like a seive, too much to remember. I’m gonna stop here, because like I said, we can counter point for infinity and I don’t want to start more, because two things that are personal to everybody are their politics and religion.

    –Aleck


    And this is why Granny said don’t discuss these, because we can come up with point and counter point into infinity. Yes, I did originally respond, I spent a lot of time looking around the net. Found a page called The Green Papers that actually *gasp* had all the numbers from the past election, including write in candidates for all the states. *kewl* Found out that Texas voted Republican, 59.3%. But because of a slow computer, I closed the window and lost everything I had typed.

    Now, like I said, I refuse to talk about abortion in any manner. period.

    AHA! I found some things that give more specifics that Clinton did to improve the state of being! Here: click here to go to site

    I think this is a good article, it discusses over many of the subjects we’ve covered. So Johnny’s broken leg was taken care of! whew, how quickly times can change.
    They talk about the Community Re-investment act, but who initiated that in the first place? They don’t really say in this article. Looking it up…Ah, was in 1977, re-regulated in 1995, so although Clinton didn’t originally legislate the concept, he did stiffen it up to be more effective.

    The reason why I “hid behind the liberal media card” is because I’ve seen it up close and personal. I know how stories can get slashed from the way they were written, or how editors will fight to get what they want in, even if it wasn’t the reporters intention. It’s an ugly beast and very frustrating.

    As to the credit card numbers, I heard it on the ‘ol boob tube. I thought they said the numbers were from ’96-’99 and the figures were provided by the credit card companies.

    People are told *every day* to spend, spend, spend. I refuse to believe that the economy took an upturn simply because a lot of people went into credit card debt. That just doesn’t make any sense whatsoever…..

    *and did you hear that people are drowning an average of $10,000 in debt? I don’t think that happened since January. When did it happen? Maybe when they were being told all is peachy, jobs are going up, hey, I bet there’s gonna be a worker shortage! Baby, your guaranteed a job at this company FOREVER! Go ahead and buy a new ‘fridge, ‘cuz it’s all OK.*

    And if people *did* go into debt because they were told to spend, then they *deserve* to be in debt. The failure of some people to act responsibly should not be blamed on the government.

    *tehe, why not? Everything else is* Consumer spending was up, chiefly, because people were making more money.

    *because the companies thought everything was peachy because Govt. projections said it was, interest rates kept low. Let’s go ahead and give them a raise, we’ll make it up in five years with profit, because everyone’s spending, and we’ll keep our employees happy. Do you see the viscious circle this creates? It’s all fed on one another, until something would go boom, like getting a President that no one has confidence in*

    Unemployment went down, while the number of jobs went up.

    *numbers, where are the numbers??? Tell me so I can go look at them and see what the source for these numbers are and the information so I can make an educated opinion about them.*

    It’s not a matter of “cooking the books.” *Yes it is*

    Most conservative pundits won’t even attempt to argue with that, and instead try to pass that off to actions taken by Bush Sr. that took years to come to fruition.

    *nope, most Republicans will tell you that it is Reagan’s policies that took years to come to fruition. You do realize that Clinton had the highest tax raises in history? Even Kennedy, a Democrat, knew that the lower the taxes, the more pay people could take home, the more cash they had to spend on clothes, food, cars and housing, thus stimulating an economy. *

    The number of people on welfare also went down significantly

    *because people were kicked off of welfare if they couldn’t find a job, so either work a minimum wage job that strapped you, because now you are paying for a sitter and gas and insurance and a car, just so you can work, so you can keep food stamps to feed your kids, who you may not see you much anymore, but by golly, ain’t Clinton great? He’s got everyone working jobs…but wait, now you can’t get medicare because you have a job…and darn…Johnny broke his leg because the babysitter who has far too many kids to watch, but she was the only one who could take him, wasn’t watching him as he jumped off the porch… and you have no insurance…so you have to pay off the hospital…but …I think we can all see where this is going. Numbers can and are manipulated, constantly*

    (something else that conservatives try to pin on Bush Sr.).
    Now, I’m not saying that things were all rosy under Clinton’s administration. There were certain policies made that I personally did not agree with. For instance, he stepped up the drug war, which is a personal pet peeve of mine (legislating morality and all that, which is a particularly conservative pastime), he kowtowed to the religious right and the arch-conservatives by getting rid of Jocelyn Elders as Surgeon General (simply because she said that sexual education should make reference to masturbation, which was blown out of proportion in the so-called liberal media to appear that she was calling for instruction in how to masturbate) and he backed down on the issue of gays in the military (though he did make it illegal to *ask* if someone was gay, which is a *small* step forward).

    *I’m still waiting for the policies he instituted that helped. I haven’t seen a single example yet, a name of a bill… something. I’m seeing a lot of negatives about both Prez’s but I’m still looking for direct examples, names, dates so I can know the positive impact that Clinton had. Positive impact Bush had?…I don’t know, it’s still early…you know, back to the numbers thing…I think Bush should have waited to give money back. Just to make sure everything jived up and we aren’t getting screwed by it*

    But I’d take all that in an *instant* over what we’ve got right now. Cutting off funding to foreign medical centers that discuss abortion as an option (which was “spun” by the White House to appear that Bush was cutting US funding of abortions themselves, which was a flat-out lie because the US didn’t fund abortions to *begin with*)

    *this I will not get into, I REFUSE to discuss abortion on a list, it’s not discussed in my house because this house has agreed to disagree on it. It’s far more complicated than the black and white issue everyone wants to make it out as*

    nominating a religious zealot as Attorney General,

    *who says he’s a religious zealot? Does he shave his head and sell flowers at the airport? Just wondering, becuase this is the first time I’ve seen this issue*

    placing the FCC in the hands of the Sec. of Defense’s son (whose first action was to fine a radio station for playing a CLEAN version of a song because of “context”), kissing the collective ass of China after holding US pilots hostage *(I can only imagine the thrashing the liberal media would have given Clinton for an apology as toadying as Bush’s)

    *they would have said, Isn’t Clinton a magnificent statesman? See what he could accomplish?? No one died. He’s sooo brilliant, wow, what a amazingly froody guy. This doesn’t help with any examples of what Clinton directly instilled for laws, bills, policies…I’m waiting*

    , giving wildlife preserves to oil companies, offering government funds to religious organizations

    *as long as the organization doesn’t try to convert or discuss religious philosophy, some of those churches need that funding. Would you deny the Luthern Family Services, a therapy place, funding? How callous is that? What about Good Samaritan Systems, a hospital network? Would they be covered under that also? Some of these services dont exist publically, what would you suggest the homeless or sick do?*

    (never mind the separation of Church and State issues that this violates)

    *I’m not really sure if it does violate it. Has this gone to the courts yet? Has there been a ruling on it? I’m missing cable something awful, no 24 hour news, so I don’t know what is going on anymore. The half hour on ABC, CBS, or NBC just doesn’t cover anything in detail* …Is it any wonder that Bush *lost* the popular vote?

    *What? Bush lost the popular vote? hrmm…that darn rascally electoral college, not paying attention to the media’s wants.

    Well, on the serious side, I think the govt. should cut back on spending and I think maybe everyone agrees they should. The problem is where do they cut back? And that’s when the greed and pork start coming in, everyone wants to protect their state. And in Protecting their state, they make a deal with Prince.

    I think I might listen to Granny more in the future. *

    Those are the numbers that I was talking about earlier. Employed…that includes the folks working two or more jobs to make ends meet. Or the folks who are working one job because they don’t want their kids to consider them strangers, but still have to get food stamps to get enough food. Yes, the numbers looked good, but the numbers sources tended to be from a liberalist press that liked Clinton. Now a lot of people are in credit card hell because they were being told that everything was just peachy, things are looking up, spend, spend, spend….and they did. Which of course made the economy look good, consumer spending was up! But, those credit cards have to be paid off sometime…I’m wondering when that will be.

    Backing up to Clinton as president. Like I mentioned before, I’m hard pressed to think what policies he passed that had a positive effect on the well being of the American people. Everyone said what a great job he did…but what, EXACTLY did he do? I really need a reminder on that.

    DalekTek790, to wipe you from Xistence would rob of me a good laugh on a regular basis.


    X, sweetie pie, my grandma always said don’t discuss politics or religion. I know why she said that, because you can’t change anyone’s mind, but when did I ever listen to granny?

    This is an opinion: Clinton was a smooth southern talker. He really didn’t do a whole lot when it comes to policies. Really, I’m hard pressed to think of what he did do while in the white house that was productive for the American people. BUT I didn’t vote, so I can’t jump up and down to loudly. Also, he was caught in a blatent lie. Now, I don’t know about you, but one of my pet peeves is being lied to. To me, it’s cowardice and stupidity that makes people lie the big lies. Also, if he is not truthful about one thing, what else isn’t he being truthful about? If he was so smart, why couldn’t he think of a better way out of the situation besides out and out fibbing?

    I don’t believe Clinton’s numbers on the economy or anything for one minute. He was a manipulator on the grandest scale. I always think of him as a CEO of a company that hid factual numbers, thinking his employees weren’t smart enough or brave enough to deal with the truth. I know that statistics and numbers can be manipulated into what the poll takers want the numbers to be, on both sides of the polling.

    Why Bush? First off, he came out and said up front, I was an alcoholic. I’m not perfect…etc. At least he was smart enough to know he couldn’t hide it. I think that George Bush, although not a smooth talker, realizes when he needs help and depends on the people he has as advisors. And although Mr. Bush wasn’t the top of the class, he sure as hell achieved more than a lot of the late night talk show hosts and comedians that make fun of him.

    Why not Gore? Because of a little thing Mrs. Gore created so long ago: The PMRC (Parents Music Resource Center) What’s that? It’s a “watchdog” group she created to censor the music industry. You can thank god they didn’t get as much of their agenda done as they wanted, and you can thank Tipper for those annoying warning stickers. Was this the kind of people I wanted in the White House? NOPE. Lord only knows what other forms of censorship she would have created whilst in the background.

    I’m not from Texas, so I don’t know what he did there. How was the voting from Texas? did he win the presidency there by a landslide? or did he squeak by there too?

    hrmph, I hate presidential elections, it always comes down to the lesser of two evils.
    Oops, I wandered way off the topic.

    Heya! *waves enthusiastically*

    Squish: Thank you. I’m glad, if not overjoyed, to hear your opinion. I was really beginning to get the feeling USAmericans just weren’t wanted as fans of Lexx.

    And as a “bored American housewife” go ahead and use any phrase you feel the need to use. I’ll just sit here and smile a lot.

    ACK! am I too late? This question popped in my head just yesterday:

    Since there is so much cutting of scenes for violence in one country and nudity, sex in another country, which editing ticks you off more?

    What would happen in a Lexx episode if you could film it knowing absolutely no editing or cutting would take place?

    That’s a big ditto for me.

    There are so many people that I haven’t met in the flesh, and I talk with them almost everyday online. It would be so exciting to actually see them face to face, watch how they talk, seeing them actually laughing instead of the ‘LOL’

    I don’t want you to think this is a flame, thefrey. I just think you were hasty in cancelling so many plans that you had made. I think you should still go, despite Murphy’s law. I can understand your disappointment, BOY can I ever. I wanted to go last year, thought I would, and then (as ussual) something popped up, and I couldn’t. Same for this year. Wanted to go, thought I would, something popped up, can’t go. (I’m a tad sleepy, so forgive me if this seems like a babble.)

    What I’m trying to say is…you will see how much fun everyone had and wonder why you didn’t go. Brian Downey, Patricia Zentilli, Xenia, Lex G. will all be there, and that’s ussually more stars from one show than people see at regular convention. If Brian is any indication of what they are like, then what a fantastic bunch!

    *toddler mode* GO DARN YOU! Go so I can at least see some pictures on the sites, go so you can brag about what a beautiful place Halifax is, go so you can say you drank someone under the table, or you got to see someone get drunk under the table or whatever! HUFF.

    I’ve been thinking about this…what about a Cement Mixer? I’m sure that…in the mouth…would look something like the Lexx goo. Would just have to find some good color.

    And don’t forget the scene where Xev is crawling through a window (was it K-town?). Hard to miss every guy drooling at the TV anticipating seeing something. Even harder to miss the fact that there were undies there. Little like someone flashing you with a giant cupid outfit on under the overcoat!

    POSSIBLE SPOILERS SEASON 3
    Nigel I don’t think appeared in “The Key” BUT technically, Prince was in “The Key”, so if you wanna be really anal about it, Prince was in that one. I’m not sure if they did a quick show of him in any capacity in “Garden” or not. Did he appear in Xev’s “trip”?

    Please would users try not to use too many character without spaces in between. EG, very long url’s will make the page wider than normal and using underscore in the same way will make the page as wide as it takes to fit all the characters on one line.

    Thanks

    I would agree with Frey. Your forgiven BC. I can see that no torture I could come up with could even come close to rivaling what your going through.

    Concerning Prince. Here’s a thought. What if Prince is just the first evil person EVER to have died. He’s died the most, so he is the most “powerful.” The sheer repetition of repeated lives and the time is what made him powerful. He seems to be the only one who is aware of the passage of any time, what the souls experience in their limbo, maybe the idea of balance came from his own philosophy. Perhaps Water could have survived without Fire. But then that raises the question of where would the souls go to get punished. Would they just float around in limbo forever? thoughts anyone?

    If I didn’t reign him in now and then, he would have computers in every room with cable all over the place. I’m sure he has a dream of a waterproof computer to put in the shower.

    Thanks DalekTek and Aleck, your last two responses above cleared up my confusion. I understand more what your points are.

    As for which has more depth, it is my belief that there is more personality and room to play with Prince, because of the humanity that Aleck spoke of. HDS, in the form that he was before taking the uncleansed man in IWHS, would be so boring to write all the time. He’s got only one thing on his mind, and no great emotions to play with.

    As for better…I don’t deal in better unless I’m talking about cars, movies, food, clothes or sex. To each his own otherwise.

    *giggle* Did I shock y’all with that last bit? I think I shocked myself.

    AWCK! so fatalistic! It’s just that the tests for life are pop quizes. If you paid attention to other things and information, you should be able to handle all the pop quizes that come your way.

    Dalektek, the point of the thread got lost somewhere in your brain or mine.

    I’m confused. Do you think HDS is evil or not? At one point you say he is the eviliest villian, but then a couple of posts later, you make it seem like your argument is that he is just trying to do his job and Prince is far more evil…erm, so what’s your stance?

    And my uncleansed brain part…I was trying to make the point that the pure evil insect essence is what kept an empire of evil and unjust laws going. When the human flavor was added is what hastened plans, made things go wrong, because they didn’t have the same agenda.

    Insect Essence = destroy all human kind.
    Human = my own agenda (whatever that may be)
