wtf have they done to xena?

ok, it is a publicity shot for lucy lawless, but still ... i guess i'm just a sucker for the good old days:

give me a couple of weeks, and i am sure i will calm down about blogging pix. meanwhile, i do really prefer xena to lucy in the sky with backlighting

    That photo was for her Roxy concert poster. "lucy in the sky with diamonds" means you got the idea and the photographer, Darrell Redleaf, did a good job.

  2. thank you, anon ... i wasn't dissing the photographer or his/her work, i was just bemoaning the demise of xena and the sexy butch look that i love.

    at the same time, to be honest, there was a critical tone. i tend to get a bit bent out of shape when i think i run into the stereotype that it is better to be blonde.

    i still love lucy :-)

  3. Hey, I came across your post while doing a blogsearch under "Xena" (lol ... does that sound dorky or what?) and I am so in total agreement with you. (Though I never thought of the Xena look as "butch" ... more like "totally strong and totally female.") I love Lucy and I support whatever she's doing, but nothing quite compares to Xena for me.

    Btw, that's a really impressive list of interests you've got. I love The Crying of Lot 49! (among other things)

    Aaaanyway... just wanted to say hi, and to invite you to check out a Xena message board I co-mod, Xena Online Community. It's a great place to hang out if you're looking for other smart Xena fans to talk to -- friendly and laid back but also with lots of interesting and sometimes intense (but not flamey!) discussions of all things Xena, and quite a few other things too. Hope you check it out and join our ranks!
