June 2007 Archives

6/29/07 -- I'm working with the site a bit -- adding the new section on the right.  You'll see some projects there that aren't ready for sale yet -- the Canal Room DVD.  As soon as they're ready to go, I'll make the links active.  Yes, there will be a DVD/CD of the Canal Room concert as well as a DVD of Lucy and Renee at the New Jersey convention.

Speaking of the Roxy CD, it will have two bonus songs that weren't on the DVD -- "Drive My Car" and "Don't Let Me Down."  I got them cleared for the CD!

6/26/07 -- As she's done previously, Lucy signed some of the new Heart Tattoo shirts and the Alek Adorian outfits photos.  I took a photo of her working with the designer of the shirt.  Somewhere in my house is the paper Lucy was working out what the heart should look like.  I'm still hunting for it.  Instead of notes inside the hems of the shirts, she signed on the front.  When it came to signing the new items, as so often happens, we did it out of the back of my car.  It was a dark street on a dark night.  I'm glad a squad car didn't drive past us and ask what we were doing.  Ah, adventures with Lucy.

6/19/07 -- Lucy "Heart Tattoo" shirt and four photos of Alek Adorian's beautiful outfits now on sale in the shopping section.

6/18/07 -- Lucy's signed on for two upcoming charity benefits, both in San Francisco.  The first is July 14 -- the 2007 Human Rights Campaign San Francisco Bay Area Gala.  The second is August 5 -- the REAF Help Is On The Way XIII.  Links for information and tickets are here and over on the left.

Many of you know our convention photo ops photographer, Chris Schmelke.  Here are some of his Lucy Canal Room concert photos.  You can find more photos on the Xena Fan Club page.

6/12/07 -- New message from Lucy.  She's wrapping her head around doing a one-woman show as well as more concerts.  Those who saw her at the New Jersey convention noted Lucy's storytelling skills -- anyone for roadkill?  <G>  Can't wait to see what else is in her memory bag.

6/6/07 --  "Tell Mama" was the song that started Lucy on the concert trail.  She got to pick the song and sing in her key and style.  It was so liberating and exciting, when Celebrity Duets was over, she knew she had to get back on stage and sing again.  And we owe it all to this rockin' song by Etta James.  Check out a clip of Renee at the convention over on the Xena Fan Club page.  FYI, I'll put the wmv versions of these clips up when I come back from vacation next week.

6/5/07 -- Lucy moderating Battlestar Q&A in L.A. June 6, 8PM, Cinerama Dome Theater, 6360 W. Sunset Blvd with stars Edward James Olmos, Mary McDonnell, Jamie Bamber, Katee Sackhoff, Ronald D. Moore and David Eick.  First-come, first-serve seating.  Sneak peek of season four returning January 2008.  First 500 fans in line will be allowed in at 6 p.m. for a screening of the season-three finale, "Crossroads, Part 2," in high definition.

"I'll Stand By You" has become the anthem of Lucy's appearances in concert before the Xena fans.  They've been there for her and she's there for them.  This night she dedicated the song to her daughter, Daisy.   

Opening night, the audience had a large contingency of the general public in attendance.  There was also a fair amount of guys.  I was watching for talkers, people not paying attention.  As I looked over the crowd, not one head was turned away from the stage.  Lucy was mesmerizing them.  Her stage presence is growing in leaps and bounds.  They couldn't look away.  Not to talk, take a sip of their drinks.  It was so satisfying.  She had them from the opening notes and never let go.  Check out "What'd I Say" over on the Xena Fan Club page.

6/3/07 -- Lucy had 18 songs in her set when she started the show on Thursday.  Closing night on Saturday brought another song into the fold, "Total Eclipse Of The Heart."  There was a half-hour run-through just before the doors opened on Saturday and this song came up.  Lucy sang it with Bonnie Tyler on Celebrity Duets and the fans have been dying to hear Lucy do the whole song herself.  The band had about 20 minutes to come up with an arrangement.  Lucy taped into her song memory -- I swear she knows the lyrics to every song written in the 80s and 90s!  With the lyrics taped to a monitor on the floor, Lucy gave the audience what they'd been waiting for.  And now you get a sneak peek.  Check out "Take My Breath Away" over on the Xena Fan Club page.
