THE STORY GOES AS FOLLOWS:
ROBOT HEAD, 790, ONCE WORKED FOR HIS DIVINE SHADOW MAKING LOVE SLAVES, AND WAS DESTROYED AND
LEFT AS A HEAD WHEN A CLUSTER LIZARD DEVOURED HIS BODY AND MELDED WITH XEV WHILE SHE WAS IN THE PROCESS OF TRANSFORMING INTO
A LOVE SLAVE AS PUNISHMENT FOR NOT BEING A GOOD WIFE. (XEV WAS FAT, UGLY, COVERED WITH WARTS-A REAL TOAD). AFTER THE TRANSFORMATION,
XEV, NOW A BEAUTIFUL LOVE SLAVE (ORIGINALLY PLAYED BY ACTOR EVA HABERMAN, NOW PLAYED BY THE SULTRY XENIA SEEBURG) INTENTIONALLY
PROGRAMS 790 WITH THE FINAL PORTION OF THE PROGRAMMING MEANT FOR HER, AND NOW 790 IS IN LOVE WITH XEV. THEN THE TRANSFORMATION
CHAMBER IS TOTALLY DESTROYED, XEV ESCAPES WITH STANLEY (WHO GOT THE KEY TO THE LEXX FROM THIEVES WHO WERE GOING TO STEAL IT
THEMSELVED-ONE WAS PLAYED BY ROCKY HORROR ALUMNIST, BARRY BOSTWICK. THE KEY, ALSO A LIVE ENTITY, NOW INSIDE OF STANLEY AND
CANNOT BE REMOVED UNLESS STANLEY FACES DEATH OR IS BROUGHT TO THE HEIGHTS OF PASSION,) AND KAI, A DEAD ASSASIN FOR HIS DIVINE
SHADOW, WHO WAS KILLED 2000 YEARS AGO WHEN ALL HIS PEOPLE, THE BRUNIN GE, WERE SLAUGHTERED. KAI IS THEN REANIMATED WITH PROTOBLOOD
TO BE AN ASSASSIN FOR HIS DIVINE SHADOW IN THE CLUSTER, WHERE THE LEXX WAS BUILT. BUT WHEN KAI GETS HIS MEMORY BACK, HE WHO
WAS ORIGINALLY AFTER STANLEY AND XEV TO KILL THEM, JOINS THEM AS PART OF THE LEXX CREW ON THEIR JOURNIES TO FIND A NEW HOME
AFTER THEY DESTROY THE LIGHT UNIVERSE AND ESCAPE THRU THE FRACTAL CORE INTO THE DARK UNIVERSE. NOW, IN IT'S 4TH (???) SEASON,
790 IS NOW HOPELESSLY IN LOVE WITH KAI AND MEMBER OF THE LEXX CREW. (HE WENT OFFLINE AND HIS PROGRAM GOT ALL FUCKED UP AND
WHEN HE OPENED HIS BEEDY LITTLE ROBOT EYES, THE FIRST FACE HE SAW WAS KAI'S. NOW 790 IS HOPELESSLY IN LOVE WITH KAI (WHO WE
REMEMBER IS DEAD)). HE IS CONSTANTLY TRYING TO COME UP WITH WAYS TO KILL XEV AND STANLEY SO HE COULD BE ALONE WITH KAI, WHOM
HE REFERS TO AS HIS "CUDDLE CORPSE." THE FEELING FROM KAI IS NOT MUTUAL. HE IS DEAD. "THE DEAD DONT FEEL."
TO GET THE FULL STORY OF HOW THIS ALL STARTED, THERE ARE 5 "LEXX" MOVIES THAT PREEMPT THE SERIES AND ARE INTEGRAL
IN THE UNDERSTANDING OF THIS COMPLEX ALMOST PSYCHEDELIC SCI FI EPIC.
And so the story goes. Unfortunately they evil known
as AT&T has decided to remove the Sci Fi channel from my cable line up, so I don't watch the show anymore. :(
BUILT IN THE CLUSTER, THE LEXX, THE GREATEST DESTRUCTIVE FORCE IN THE TWO UNIVERSES, DESIGNED FOR USE BY HIS DIVINE SHADOW,
STOLEN AND NOW CREWED BY STANLEY H. TWEEDLE (the captain), XEV OF B3K (the love slave), KAI, LAST OF THE BRUNIN GE (the dead
"former" assassin), AND 790 (the smart mouthed robot head.)

MO GAFFNEY - comedic genius, ex-talk show host, author, a funny funny lady! Famed by her work with Kathy Najimy (Sister Act,
Voctoria's Closet) and her long running stint on the BBC with famed diva, Ruby Wax (see link below), Mo Gaffney is one of
the top comedians today and can be seen playing the goofy Bo Cryslis, on the wonderfully ridiculous Brit-com, Absolutely Fabulous.
Mo adds a bit of slapstick and silliness to the sin and sleeze around which the show is built, usually "dominating" the scenes
in which she is cast.(Yes, I am biased. I adore Mo.) Click here to go to her "official" website.
JENNIFER SAUNDERS - Jennifer is one of the leading commedians in Britain and the world over. From her early work on the British
comedy "The Young Ones" and her work with partner in crime, Dawn French, on the "French and Saunders" show, to the hilarious
"Absolutely Fabulous". Click here and see all there is to see about Jennifer.
THOMAS McKNIGHT is an artist somewhat out of sync with his times. Born in Lawrence, Kansas, in 1941, by generation he should
have been an early pop artist or a late neo-expressionist. But he came of age artistically during the 1970s, when art had
practically done itself in with minimalism and conceptual experimentation. His work, full of color and image, seems to be
a reaction to that gray decade. Click here and be taken to a world only seen in realistic dreams and beach view'd windows.

"Frog in a Blender" and my personal favorite, "Bubble Butt Stinky Boy". These are priceless and totally

SOUTHPARK, COLORADO - Click on the link below
to be taken to the small rural town of Southpark, Co, where you'll meet Eric, Stan, Kyle, and Kenny (oh no, they killed Kenny!
You bastards!), and also a whole new group of sick characters like Mr Makey, the councelor, Mr Garrison, the gay kindergarden
teacher, Butters, Tweek, Mr Hanky (the Christmas poo), and my favorite, Timmy, the retarded kid in the wheelchair, not to
mention the new 4th grade teacher, Miss Chokesondick, Uncle Jimbo, and Ned (who speaks thru a traech hole in his throat and
has only one arm due to losing it in Vietnam). The story goes on and on, so watch every wednesday night (EST) on Comedy Central
(TM) for the ongoing adventures of these wonderful and totally foul mouthed characters. (This show continues to break ground
with it's controversial topics and extreme profane language.)
THE BEAUTIFUL AND BRILLIANTLY TALENTED JOANNA LUMLEY, STAR OF STAGE, SCREEN, AND THE WONDERFULLY SINFUL BRITCOM, "ABSOLUTELY
FABULOUS" AS THE AGING-HAS-BEEN-MODEL-ALCOHOLIC-PILL POPPING-POT-SMOKING PATSY STONE. (this is my favorite Joanna Lumley role,
though she has starred in many films, including "Cold Comfort Farm" and "The Legend of Sweeny Todd", and was a top model in
her earlier years.)
Woody is one of my favorite actor/comedian/directors
of all time. I feel his best work can be seen in his earlier works with the also very talented Diane Keaton, "Annie Hall"
"Sleeper" and "Love and Death" (my favorite). Woody is a brilliant comedian and a lot of people say if you're not Jewish,
you won't "get" a lot of his humor. Well, I guess that's true, but his humor makes you think. Its intellectual, and mixing
that with slapstick, Allen Kroningberg changed his name to Woody Allen in 1952, and history was born. Click on the image of
Woody above to be taken to his official website.
If I include Woody here then I must include
Mel Brooks, one of the most brilliant filmmakers/commedians in the history of comic theatre. With such films as "Blazing Saddles",
"Young Frankenstein" "High Anxiety" and "History of the World Pt. I" under his belt, not to name endless more, Mel has branded
himself the ultimate king of comedy, belly rolling, peeing in your pants comedy. Click the above image to be taken to his

a singer/songwriter, she is a poet, a wit, a goddess, a composer of the first order, and the possessor of a truly unique voice.
She is truly refreshing and unique. What makes her so? Well, her healthy cynicism, her sense of humour, her sense of irony,
her supreme lack of self-importance, her comprehension of a wide range of musical styles. This is, was, and always be Kirsty
MacColl. She will be greatly missed but her music will live on.

NINA HAGEN - From 1978 to 1985, the musical career of Nina Hagen flourished throughout the galaxy by virtue of her rigorous
intercontinental touring schedules and the availability of her five albums on CBS Records... No matter that Nina Hagen - actress,
chanteuse, political firebrand, doting mother, animal rights activist - was an anomaly in the era of punk rock and disco divas:
Marlene Dietrich meets Emma Goldman on stage at the Ritz. No matter that awestruck critics in America were at a genuine loss
to categorize her and that radio reeled in horror. No matter that her lifestyle went beyond conventional limits of women's
liberation more than a decade ago. At the end of the day, as with every great musical artist, the recordings are the true
chronicle of events. Nina even named her website after her daughter Cosma Shiva Hagen.
Maurice Sendak is a man of many
talents. He designed wooden toys with his brother. He did the lyrics for an animated film for television called Really Rosie
which is from his books, the Nutshell Library. Carol King did the music. He has written the words (called libretto) for an
opera, Where the Wild Things Are, based on his classic children's book. He greatly enjoys designing sets and costumes for
operas as well.
For more information on Mr. Sendak and his work visit Telling Stories with Pictures: The Art of Children's
Book Illustration. In addition, Educational Paperback Association included Maurice Sendak in its 100 Top Children's Authors.
I personally have a hardcover copy of "Where the Wild Things Are" and, though 38 y/o, I still enjoy the memories this
book brings back. Coincidentally, he wrote it in 1964, the year of my birth. Click on the image above to be taken to his website.

RUBY WAX - Outrageous, outspoken and out of control.
Fresh from her date with OJ Simpson, loud-mouth interviewer Ruby Wax meets The Spice Girls on the eve of their first European
tour. She quizzes boxing promoter Don King on subjects ranging from ear biting to his own amazing hair style and braves back-stage
at the Jerry Springer Show. From the annals of British comedy, to a starring role in Richard O'Brien's "Shock Treatment" (the
sequel to Rocky Horror, 1981), we have the diva, delightful, and decadent Ruby Wax, who works on the British comedy series,
Absolutely Fabulous (starring Jennifer Saunders and Joanna Lumley as the irreverent Edina and Patsy) as a Script Supervisor
these days and as a talk show host, interviewing such stars as Dawn French and Matthew Modine. For three seasons, Mo Gaffney
(seen in link above) was on the BBC television show "The Full Wax" with Ruby, writing and starring in her own five minute
segments, "Taffy Turner: Inside America." Visit Ruby's official Fan-site by clicking
RIK MAYALL - Rik Mayall is considered by many to be the top British actor/comedian in the entertainment world today. Known
for his wild, loud, brash and often violent characterizations, Rik's comedic style has never been duplicated from the "British
Comic Strip" to "The Young Ones" to "Drop Dead Fred", Rik is consistently brilliant and funny. Click here to go to his wonderfully
MARY WORONOV - She is a star in the world of cult and B movies. In other words, she is not offered the kind of roles which
attract Oscars: swelling tributes to the indominatability of the human spirit and the triumph of hearts of gold over corruption.
But for anyone who has seen Woronov in action, there is no question that this habitue of the film world's margins is a powerful
actress. Whether she's playing the dithery Mary Bland of "Eating Raoul," the dynamic Matilda the Hun of "Death Race 2000,"
the domineering Miss Togar of "Rock n' Roll High School," or any of the other large or small roles from her twenty-five-odd
year career, Mary Woronov has consistently offered something that her fans prefer to romantic reconciliation and moral uplift:
a subversive air of danger. Mary is also an artist and author. I am sure Andy is so proud of his protogee!!
"Little" NELL CAMPBELL - On May 24, 1953 a little girl was born in Sidney, Australia. Her name was Laura Campbell. Her father
Ross, who was a writer, gave her the nick name Little Nell. A name, under which she's known until today. Starring in "Rocky
Horror" and "Shock Treatment" and running a nightclub called "Nell's" in New York during the 80's, click here for Nell's official

Blondie was the greatest pop band of the New Wave Punk era. They were pop because you can't really say they were new wave
or punk, or funk, or disco, or art for that matter. They did everything that interested them -- including the first rock/reggae
and rock/disco. To some they were new wave with their ironic words, cool haircuts and Debbie in day glo Steven Sprouse fashions.
To some they were punks -- mocking rock dinosaurs and Debbie the cover girl on Punk Magazine. Whatever they did, it all came
out sounding great and Blondie remains one of the biggest hitmaking bands of our time. Debbie Harry, Chris Stein, Jimmy Destri,
and Clem Burke make up one of the greatest punk/rock bands of all time. Click here to be taken to their official website,

LENE - The name says it all. New wave goddess. Punk Icon. Snappy dresser. From her early relationships at Stiff Records, where
she first met Les Chappell, her partner and husband, and Nina Hagen, one of her dearest friends, Lene has warbled and squealed
her way into the minds and stereos of millions of fans, producing such hits as "Lucky Number" and "New Toy" and some not so
popular but nonetheless wonderous songs like "Home", "Telepathy" , "Bird Song", and "Monkey Talk". Lene was a pioneer in the
early punk/new wave scene of the late 70's early 80's, offering her own special style to the new wave score board, and remains
today a staple in any true "punk's" cd collections. "Stateless" "No Mans Land" "Flex" and "March" are the Lene collection.

When first you hear the voice, rich, warm, remarkable, it's a voice that suits a secret sharer, a woman who tells the truth.
For more than 27 years, Joan Armatrading has done just that-- in songs crafty, subtle and sublime. Armatrading's songs are
in the truest sense soul music; even at their boldest, driven by her passionate guitar, they touch the listener like a whisper

BAUHAUS - With their image and brooding music it was inevitable that Bauhaus would rise and ultimately be classified with
the vanguard of the "goth" fashion, a totally misleading confinement, which ignored their humor, experimentation and uniqueness.
Their music was dark rock 'n' roll, owing more to Elvis Presley's "Heatbreak Hotel" than to their imitator's pompous epics
which gave the Gothic genre a bad name. Though the commercial success of Bauhaus has subsequently been eclipsed by the group's
individual projects (Tones on Tail, Love and Rockets, Peter Murphy's solo, & Daniel Ash's solo - see links below), their musical
legacy still remains highly influential - the mark of a truly great band.

BONGWATER - Bongwater evolved in New York, USA, in 1987 when (Mark) Kramer (guitar), formerly of Shockabilly and the Butthole
Surfers, joined forces with vocalist/performance artist Ann Magnuson (see link below). The pair were already acquainted from
Ann's previous group, Pulsallama (see link below), and the new act was one of the first to record for Kramer's Shimmy-Disc
label. The band is defunct, but made some really cool music, featuring many guest musicians, like Fred Schneider of the B-52's.

Chances are you don't know who Murray Head is.
You might remember the song "One Night In Bangkok" from way back in '85, but you probably didn't realize that song was
from Murray's performance of "The American" in the musical Chess. Chess was written by the Masterminds behind ABBA, Benny
Anderssen and Bjorn Ulvaeus. Murray also performed the role of Judas on the original recording of Andrew Lloyd Webber's Jesus
Christ Superstar. Less known to we Americans are his best performances, found on his multiple solo albums. Click on the pic
above (Murray around the Jesus Christ Superstar era-early 1970's) to be taken to his unauthorized website, containing ever
expanding information on Murray's extensive musical and theatrical career.
Eleni Mandell cements herself as a sophisticated songcatcher with an enviable alchemy for taking influences as diverse as
Tin Pan Alley, British music hall, tropicalia, klezmer, Eurocabaret and Appalachia and making music hauntingly familiar yet
still unsettling and otherworldly. (In a word, original.) More importantly, she is approaching a lyrical poise that rounds
out the lush cinema of her musical style -- it could almost be called novelistic. Mandell's songs shimmer in moods indigo,
cheap sequins and paranoid exotica, but it is her rich, coiled, withering aphrodisiac of an alto that sets the tone for the
whole narrative. It's at times cruel and histrionic. Click here for the Official Eleni Mandel Website. And order her new album
"Snakebite" as it is a MUST HAVE!!!!!
LESLIE RANKINE is "RUBY"
The solo project of Lesley Rankine (b. 11 April 1965, Edinburgh, Scotland), the raucous vocalist
who invigorated the early 90s records of Silverfish. With that band, shaven-headed and bedecked in dungarees and Doc Martins, she had been the epitome of confrontational
female rock, but the 1995 model Rankine arrived in much more glamorous wardrobe. With Silverfish all but expired in 1993,
Rankine had relocated from London to Seattle to work with musical partner Mark Walk. Ruby was chosen as a title because both
Rankine and Walk had a grandmother with that name. As Rankine recalls of this period: "I was aiming for sensuality with a
dark, sinister undercurrent. It also had to be really beautiful."

Danielle Dax was the ultimate indie queen,
undisputed, former member of the Lemon Kittens, Danielle Dax, born in Southend England, showed a lot of talent
and interest in visual art and music at a very early age. Lemon Kittens only released 2 albums before Danielle set out
on her solo career to release many fine works of fictional obscurity. Though, not recording at the moment having retreated
to the comforts of "garden design", one final ep was released in 95, "Timber Tonge", which got varied reviews here and abroad.
