<PartyJooon> not me :)
<Lex_G> me! me!
<Nightgaunt> Hey Lex -- any
plans for you and Jeff to appear in anything together post-Lexx? I'm really
pissed off that I never got to see El Mundo del Lundo...
<Lex_G> Nightgaunt - no plans
for me and Der Hirschfield at present, but I just know we'll hook up again... ga
<Lex_G> where are y'all from?
Quick answers, please... ga
<Parasite> Splarka: you perv!
<Splarka> your basement
<Lex_G> splarka - lol
<Lex_G> no, he's right
<Splarka> oops what a give
away, I'll start again (
* Splarka gives Lex an extra special
hug for that basement:)
<SadGeezer> Lex, how the hell
are ya dude (and the wife and kids) and why the hell aren't you doing a LEXX
season 5 you bugger
<Lex_G> Sad sad sad.... give a
peck to your lovely bride for me... and you know what they say about things that
start spontaneously - they sometimes end that way... ga
<SadGeezer> haha Lex :-)I will
<Splarka> Left: Who decided on
what new writers to bring in? you and the beans, Salter, alliance/Atlantic,
<Lex_G> Splarka - hmmmm, kind
of a joint decision, as it were... we wanted to have new writers, that was the
plan all along... ga
<fx> are you working now? and
<Lex_G> fx - I have several
things on the hop at present, but I can't really talk about them... I have,
however, just finished a play about John Walker
<Raven> Lex, what’s your
Favorite Lexx episode?
<Lex_G> Raven - Brigadoom is my
favorite episode... ga
<StanleyTweedle> Lex What was
it that got you to be the cab driver in Love and Death on
<Lex_G> Stanley Twiddle - oh my
god... I bullshitted the director with all sorts of wild tales about how I'd
studied at RADA and at the Actor's Studio... I almost lost the gig, too, because
I don't have a driver's license (hard, when you're playing a cabdriver).... Priestly
was okay, actually - we hung out for a bit and he was all right... ga
<Nightgaunt> Lefty: which of
your characters did you have most fun playing?
<Lex_G> Nightgaunt - another
toughie, but there was a certain something about Farty the Clown.... ga
<angelmay> Lex, Any idea if a
Lexx spinoff is going to happen?
<Lex_G> angelmay - not at
<Parasite> G-man: any plans to
have a "Lexx: the animated series"?;)
<Lex_G> G-Man - gee, I always
thought it kinda was.... but no, I don't think so.... ga
<Lex_G> I/me discovers he likes
* Lex_G discovers... oh screw it
<Klaatu> always knew he was ga
<Parasite> all we hear is radio
<Nightgaunt> Any truth in the rumors
about a kids' version Lexx, containing all the bits that were just too hot for
the regular version? If not, why not? ;)
<Lex_G> A Kids version of
Lexx?! Holy Christ, what a terrifying concept.... ga
<Parasite> lexx eats Barney the
<StanleyTweedle> Lex are you
wanting to continue in scifi or move on to other genres in the near future?
<Lex_G> Stanley Tweedle - I
certainly would want to work on another sci-fi project, but I have several other
interests as well that, um, need further exploration.... ga
* Lex_G locks his kids in the
basement next to Splarka's socks....
<Slopmaster> Lex is there any
chance of doing a Star Wars like makeover for the Lexx movies?
<Lex_G> Slop - hmmm, what's
involved in a Star-Wars-like makeover, I wonder? In short, no.... ga
* Splarka pouts, they make good
<Parasite> not Splark's socks,
they'll eat your kids alive!!!!;)
<SadGeezer> lex, were you
entirely happy with the standard of writing for the episodes in Season 4?
<Lex_G> Sad - I'm never
entirely happy with the quality of writing in any season (I'm not sure that
answers your question).... ga
<SadGeezer> no :-)
<Jooon> Lex_G: was your brother
involved with other stuff than brigadoom? and how much German "stuff"
is really in that episode? (I'm under cai piranha threat from 13 other Germans
here, please help me out)
<Lex_G> Joon - almost every
song in Brigadoom was a cannibalized version of ancient German folk songs (Zum
Zunm Zum, etc.)... ga
<Lex_G> Joon - my brother
(Andre Haines) also played one of the fighter guys in Lafftrak, and played one
of the "girls" in Girltown.... ga
<dgrequeen> Lex, what other
things are you interested in doing?
<dgrequeen> Sorry if that was
<Lex_G> drgqueen - I have a
couple of other series ideas that are rolling around at present... ga
<angelmay> Lex are you going to
pursue more acting now or writing?
<Lex_G> angelmay - God, I
certainly hope so.... hopefully both... ga
<Valdron> What episodes in
fourth season have you been happiest with?
<Lex_G> Valdron - hmmm, Prime
Ridge was a favorite... ga
<Valdron> Hmmm, interesting
<Slopmaster> Lex maybe you can
finally put a rest to this argument. Is it Austro B or Ostro B?
<Heywood_Jablome> its such a
pressing argument :P
<Lex_G> Slopmaster - Ostrol
<StanleyTweedle> I thought it
was Ostral B
<Parasite> I thought it was
<SadGeezer> haha para
<Splarka> thought it was 'Aunt
Bea'.. maybe I am in the wrong universe tho
<SadGeezer> (I thought it was
<Parasite> oralB heretic: at
least they have good teeth;)
<Valdron> Did you get the
chance to go on location yourself?
<Lex_G> Valdron - where? To
Ostrol B? Most of our shooting was done on earth... ga
<Nightgaunt> Whose idea was the
carrot infestation? I need to know who should be charged for my therapy... and
if I could sneak in another question related to them, which five people would
you most like to see on the receiving end of a bad carrot?
<Lex_G> Nightgaunt - the carrot
thing was a, shall we say, collective malaise.... as for the five people I'd
most like to see carrotted, I'd pick Bin Laden and four pitchers for the Blue
Jays (pick any four).... ga
<Slopmaster> Yeah in that case
Bin Laden might actually save earth. They would take one taste of him and never
<Raven> Lex, who do u find most
attractive - Eva Habermann or Xenia Seeberg?
<Heywood_Jablome> what about
<Jooon> Nightgaunt: Paul! :)
<Lex_G> Raven - hmmmm, I'm not
sure either is quite my type (I'm an Eleanor Roosevelt man).... ga
<SadGeezer> (Raven, lex's wife
looks a bit like Eva habermann)
<Raven> nice! :)
<Valdron> I have the impression
you were man on the spot for on site writing, Jeff was in
<Lex_G> Valdron - yes, I was
the on-set bitch.... ga
<Valdron> Man, I'm surprised
you were able to sleep at night.
<Valdron> Apart from Viva Lexx
Vegas, any major headaches?
<Lex_G> Valdron - lotsa
headaches all the time (they're going away now)... but other than the VLV
incident, just routine... ga
<StanleyTweedle> Lex, What are
your 5 favorite films?
<Heywood_Jablome> Flesh Gordon
one of them?
<Lex_G> Stanley Tweedle - oh
god, I can't pick five right now (The Conversation would be on the list for
<Slopmaster> Well he had Kai's
cryopod to keep him unconscious
<Lex_G> wait please I'm
<Lex_G> Heywood - no, but
Barberalla cracks the top 30....
<Parasite> <random madness
question> how many decimal places can you recite Pi to?;)
<Jooon> Parasite: that's
unfair, he's an actor/writer :)
<Lex_G> Parasite... two.... ga
<Headgehog> Lex, Pres. Priest
looks a lot like George W. If Gore were elected, would a different actor have
been castled, who looks more like Gore?
<Valdron> good one Hedge
<Valdron> How much of the Shrub
is in Priest
<Lex_G> Headgehog - no, we were
going with Rolf all the way... ga (but it kind of worked out okay with the Dubai
<Valdron> Looking back: 6 day
shooting schedule, Nightmare or Mistake?
<Lex_G> Valdron - THOSE are my
* Lex_G starts to cry and re-adjust
the freon tubes
<Valdron> Pick a third choice.
<Lex_G> Seriously, you'd like
twenty days per ep... but you work with what is feasible.... ga
<Raven> Lex, in the episode
Lyekka... What is with the human heads in the vegetable patch? I didn't
understand that bit...
<Parasite> raven, maybe lex
likes head?;) j/k
<Lex_G> Raven - that's cause
you don't understand "family values"... :).... ga
<Parasite> sorry, that was OTT
* Parasite bows his head in shame
<dgrequeen> Lex, do you miss
working on Lexx? (just type dgre, it's easier)
<Lex_G> dgre - yes... it was a
great experience with wonderful peeps... ga
<Valdron> Here's a technical question. Some
credits are"PD with LG" some are "PD and LG"some are
"JS & AL" I assume there's some consistent underlying meaning with
regard to the use of 'with' 'and' or '&'?
<Lex_G> Valdron - and the
question is.... ?ga
Valdron> What's it mean...if it
<Lex_G> Valdron - yeah,
"And" implies a roughly equal amount of work... "with"
implies someone who helped... ga
<Valdron> and'&' implies a
joint writing team, thus Spira and Selzer?
<Lex_G> Valdron - yeah I guess
<SadGeezer> Lex, we still
haven't had a good reason why the whole lexx saga is ending. Was it because you
guys got bored, ran out of ideas, got sick of each other? or what?
<Lex_G> Sad - I guess the best
way to put it is that we always felt it was better to go out on your own
terms... the history of television is littered with shows that got cancelled
before they should've, or shows that stayed one season too long. I don't think
we were bored with it by any means, but on the other hand we feel that the
series wraps up quite nicely, and why screw up a good thing?ga
<dgrequeen> well said
<SadGeezer> oki, thanks lex :)
<Splarka> Did you consciously
borrow "First served, first come" from History of the World?
<Lex_G> Splarka - No, god help
us, if we were subconsciously borrowing from Mel Brooks than it really was time
to quit.... :) ga
<theFrey> Lex would you like us
to pause a moment to let you catch up?
<Lex_G> yes, Frey, thank you
<theFrey> all right people, let
us wait until Mr. G tells us he is ready for more questions.
<StanleyTweedle> Lex - Are you
going to continue to work with Salter street?
<Lex_G> STweedle - I hope so at
some point... ga
<Jooon> Lex_G: have we (the
fans) affected the writing of Lexx, or are you completely independent of our
<theFrey> Jooon? We are waiting
<Lunatic> to Lex : does that
mean in a more or less future time we might have the pleasure of a movie just
like those in season one ?
<Lex_G> Lunatic - well, we've
always maintained on our show that "Death is never final
Lex...thanks for giving us the best of hope then !! :)
<Lex_G> Maybe there will be a
movie at some point, but I wouldn't hold my breath.... ga
* Lunatic would snuggle but...decides
to be good for once :)
<Lex_G> , and I guess that
holds true... ga
<Parasite> lex: would you ever
sink as low as to do a Lexx:TNG?
<Lex_G> Parasite - lol!
<Lex_G> Believe me, I've sunk a
lot lower than that... ga
<Nightgaunt> Lex: What would
you consider your most irritating habit -- or, if you don't feel up to the
soul-searching, what would you consider to be the weirdest habits of your fellow
<Lex_G> Nightgaunt - my most
irritating habit?Hmmm, I think I have a typewritten list around here
somewhere.... how's this: I play with my balls on the bus.... ga
<Lex_G> As for the fellow
beans, they're all moral degenerates of the worst order... ga
<Poet_Man> I thought I was the
only one who did that on the bus
<Nightgaunt> You play with
Lex's balls too?
<dgrequeen> LMAO, and the cast
<NecKRx> I don't wait for the
* SadGeezer soes it all the time :)
<Parasite> poet, lex at least
does it whilst wearing pants;)
<Slopmaster> Lex: Any chance of
a spin-off series that takes us back to bad old evil days of the Divine Order?
<Lex_G> Slop - who knows?ga
<Parasite> Stan becomes a bald
brit, kai gets a golden tan, and xev either becomes a doctor or a psychic
<StanleyTweedle> Lex--Are their
any plans for new merchandise besides the trading cards now that the show is
over?(cause I could really go for a 8.675 scale model of the Lexx)
<Lex_G> STweedle - I don't
think so, sadly... ga
<Poet_Man> ahhh oke,
<Parasite> we hope
<Klaatu> Lex, do you have any
<Lex_G> Klaatu - you mean,
aside from playing with my balls on the bus?Uh, No.... ga
<StunnerLuver4> heya Lex: was
the whole carrot bit just another way to bring Lyekka back, or did you have
something different planned for them?
<Lex_G> StunnerLuver4 - We wanted to do the carrot bit, and Lyekka just "julienne" her way into the plot.... ga
<Jooon> carrot anal probes?
must have been Jeff's idea
<Lex_G> Jooon - yes, Jeff
always says "write what you know"... ga
<Valdron> Actually, I think it
was Alex Busby and David Hackle
<theFrey> Alex has issues with
veggies I think
<Valdron> It was a nice segue
<Parasite> why did you change
the asteroid sequence in 41?
<Lex_G> Parasite - Not sure...
<theFrey> ummm, Lex, you do
know that Alex saw a transcript of that chat, where you guys mentioned is veggie
<Slopmaster> I would hate to
see mechanical corn on the cob
<NecKRx> hehehe mechanical
<Lex_G> Alex Busby is a
dangerous psychotic ... ga
<Valdron> Well, his hair is,
<StanleyTweedle> Lex, Who's
idea was it to use the fruit in the brainwashing video in Woz?
<Lex_G> STweedle - that was
Paul and me... we shot the sequence on a Sunday afternoon, him and me, at PD's
<Nightgaunt> Lex: What was your
favorite death scene in Lexx? Or, to broaden the question, another film or TV
<Lex_G> Nightgaunt - one of my favorites
is the scene in "Miller's Crossing" where Gabriel Byrne takes Turturro
out to the woods to whack him... we've kind of reprised it here and there... ga
<Parasite> you know, when the asteroid
picks up the radio signal and uncurls a thruster, but you seemed to of changed
it into a fixed one of the TV showing
<Parasite> ah well
<Raven> Lex, do you have any
idea if LEXX Series 4 will be shown on Channel 5 in the
<Lex_G> Raven - sorry I don't
<StanleyTweedle> Lex, do you
know if there was a production problem with the S3-V1 dvd cause I got it from
amazon.com and it doesn’t work and they say its available in 3-5 weeks?
<theFrey> St, I will ask Acorn
about that for you
<Lex_G> STweedle - sadly, I'm
just a lowly writer, and nota Promotions Dude.... ga
<StanleyTweedle> darn been asking
everyone that and nobody knows
<dgrequeen> Lex: Without giving
away the plot, can you tell us what to expect from the final episode?
<Lex_G> dgr - I think Lexx fans
will find the last ep eminently satisfying.... :) ... ga
<Jooon> Lex_G: a simple
filler... the dead do not...?
<SadGeezer> Joon: scratch their
<Lex_G> Joon --- .... chat..... ga
<Slopmaster> Hey I bet Kai was
scratching his cod piece on the bus in "Stan Down"
<StanleyTweedle> Lex, How
<Lex_G> STweedle - you have no
idea... (as Bulow once said).... ga
<theFrey> 15 minute warning people
<Raven> 15 minutes for what?
<Slopmaster> Till the pizza is
<theFrey> the rest of the chat
<Parasite> awww, does lex have
to go home, I wanna keep him in a cage and feed him rabbit food;)
<Valdron> I'll repeat a
question cause I'm interested, how did the dancing vegetables in Woz come up?
And did Albiston do the stop motion for that?
<Lex_G> Valdron - well, we
actually needed to stretch out the show, and we wanted to do something fairly
fucked-up.... No , Paul and I did it with a video camera ga
<Valdron> You're kidding, the
two of you personally?
<Valdron> I love that bit by
the way, it's just demented.
<Doffy> it's brilliant ;)
<Nightgaunt> Another daft
question. His Divine Shadow, Mantrid, Prince -- with which would you rather be
trapped on a desert island?
<Lex_G> Nightgaunt - good
question.... Mantrid, I think, cause then I be his new Vigl.... ga
<Parasite> sick puppy
<dgrequeen> you have a copper
<Lex_G> dgr - no (sniffs)....
<theFrey> Mr. G, what part of
the Lexx Story would you have changed if you could have? And to What would you
have changed it to?
<Lex_G> theFrey - not sure I
would have changed anything dramatically.... ga
<Mondo_Kane> Lex: do you have a
favorite line of dialogue from the Lexx?
<Lex_G> Mondo_Kane - I know I
shouldn't.... I know I shouldn't... I know I shouldn't.... ga
<StanleyTweedle> Lex, did you
write "Go Fluffdaddy, Immerse yourself in your craft. Fluff like you have
never fluffed before."?
<Lex_G> STweedle - that was a
Hirschfield bon mot.... ga
<Lex_G> Valdron - I hope so....
<Valdron> Will we ever see the
original cut of Fluffdaddy on DVD?the 59 minute one?
<StanleyTweedle> well you were
perfect as hufferton
<StanleyTweedle> I could so see
you as a porn writer/director
according to most critics, lex is a porn writer;) imoa
<StunnerLuver4> Lex: anything
interesting happen while filming Tunnels?
<Lex_G> StunnerLuver4 - yeah,
it was a hoot; very cold and dusty, but I was so stoned most of the time.... ga
<theFrey> Mr. G, what advice
would you give to an aspiring writer? (sappy question I know, but then I also
know a lot of aspiring writers.)
<Lex_G> theFrey - follow your
passion with a white-hot intensity.... ga
<theFrey> Mr. G, we have about
6 minutes left, is there anything you would like to ask us?
<Lex_G> yeah - what are your favorite

<aleck> The Game, Lafftrak,

<minecritter> Mantrid is my fav

<eo> love grows
<SadGeezer> yeah, Twighlight is
my second choice
<Parasite> iwhs, Brigadoom, The

<Doffy> Twilight and WTD were
<StanleyTweedle> and the rock

the robot talk show sidekick you played in lafftrak I about died laughing
<Raven> I thought it was silly

<theFrey> I thought the movies

<Raven> the talking planets and
<fx> have you visited with jeff,

<Lex_G> fx - I see PD quite
regularly, but Jeff is in
<StanleyTweedle> shaking hands
that weren’t there and laughing out of nowhere
<Poet_Man> we saw pics of his
newest brat, when in
<Lex_G> yes, they're breeding
like gerbils in Hogtown these days... ga
<dgrequeen> Do you see much of
<Lex_G> dgr - I saw Herr Brian
on the street the other day (outside of the Shoe Shop)... he was looking fine
fine fine... ga
<Nightgaunt> Oh, wait... I've
got to ask -- how was Priest's fart-track in Bad Carrot produced?
<Poet_Man> whos ass hand a
"hand" in that?:P
<Lex_G> Nightgaunt - I think
the sound guys had lunch at the Midtown tavern.... ga
<Valdron> Hey, have they
finished postproduction? Or is there still an episode left to go?
<Lex_G> Valdron - the last ep
left last week ... ga
<Valdron> good to know
<Splarka> if offered a job to
host a morning talkshow on E!, CBC, etc, would you take it?
<Lex_G> Splarka - yes, but only
if I could wear Paula Zahn's shoes... ga
<Slopmaster> Hehe hey Lex any
chance of doing a new Lexx series with Muppets ;lol
<Poet_Man> yeah, its called

<Lex_G> Slop - yeah, watch 791
fuck Miss Piggy.... ga
<Mike-L> put Aryn in a cluster
* Parasite gives Mike-L a cold
<Poet_Man> gonna join him,
<Poet_Man> Mmmm makin bacon!
<Nightgaunt> Woulda thought 791
preferred Kermit, but there ya go ;)
<angelmay> 791 Should do Barney
if he does anyone
<Parasite> 791 and gonzo surly
<Parasite> "lexx, blow up
that gaint purple dinosaur"
<Raven> Lex, what is your
FUNNIEST Lexx moment? Mine is when Stan kicks that android kid's head off in
<Nightgaunt> Classic, Raven...
almost up there with 'please return our weapons'... :)
<Lex_G> Raven - gee I dunno,
there's a few I really like... including Thodin's "Today, I --- "
(keel over).... ga
<eo> ooh.. how about Lexx/Meet
the feebles crossover? :)
<Vigdis> What was Thodin
planning to say, anyway? Or couldn't you guys figure it out?
<Lex_G> I'm back - Vigdis,
Thodin was about to launch into an incredibly pompous speech, but we spared him
(and our audience).... ga
<Raven> lol, aww
<Vigdis> Thanks! We appreciate
<angelmay> When Kai ran out of
protoblood in Gigashadow, what was he going to say to Zev?He had started to say
<drat> my wallet is in my left
pocket....take the credit cards and buy yourself something nice
<Lex_G> angelmay - your guess
is as good as mine, maybe better.... ga
<Raven> Lex, what is your WORST
Lexx episode, ifyou have one..
<Lex_G> Raven - there's so many
to choose from.... I was never very happy with "Patches in the Sky"
for example... ga
<SadGeezer> wow!I thought that
Patches in the Sky was great!
<minecritter> I really enjoyed
the guy who played "Fruitcake" in Patches in the Sky
<Raven> Lex, why didn't you
like "Patches in the Sky"? I really liked it!
<Slopmaster> Me to
<Lex_G> Re: patches, oh I don't
know - I had to pick one.Okay, then how about Dutch Treat.... ga
<PeridotEyes> *bows to the
great God Giggerof* I was wondering what substances have been used for
protoblood over the seriee
<Vigdis> good one!
<Doffy> yes! And the changes in
<Lex_G> PeridotEyes - now now,
no boot-licking here.... ummm, I think PB was supplied by the "props"
department, and I always shuddered at inquiring further... ga
<Parasite> you never know what
those prop boys are doing
<Slopmaster> Yeah I would be
suspicious of a mens room that was allways out of order
<fx> it did seem to get darker
with each episode...
<drat> they seem to be drinking
slushies these days
<PeridotEyes> in Gigashadow it
was clearly honey in some scenes
<Vigdis> Lex, What's your
proudest LEXX moment?
<Lex_G> Vigdis - getting a
paycheque with my name on it - ummm, that and the fact that there are so many
cool peeps who like our show is what I'm proudest of.... ga
* Vigdis blushes happily.
<theFrey> grrr, cat on keyboard
<Splarka> your cat is Mr Grrr?
<drat> let the cat ask his
question then ;)
<theFrey> *Rover the Cat* wants to know why there were no pets running around on the cluster.
<Lex_G> theFrey - they were
early candidates for the protein bank... ga<Night-gaunt> Lex: what do you
consider to be Stan's most awful pick-up line?
<Lex_G> Nightgaunt - it's like
choosing the least rotten piece of cheese, I can't do it.... ga
<drat> he's getting better at
<LOTfirewerx> Lex_G: The net /
The web, breakthrough or budget? or both?
LOTRetc. - Both, for sure.... originally we had an idea of doing something akin
to that Japanese film told from different perspectives (name temporarily escapes
me... anyone?).... but it also fit into our budget problems at the time.... ga
<Lunatic> To Lex: if on one
already asked, may I ask what inspired the eps The Game ?
<Lex_G> Lunatic - MM is a huge
chess fan, and we wanted to do a "special" show this season....
<PeridotEyes> it was special,
many on the board who consider it equal to Brigadoom
<Doffy> The Game was incredible
<Lunatic> was it to make up for
making him kiss Brian in an earlier eps ? ;)
<Lex_G> dgr - that's it
<angelmay> Yes, the Game was
<Lex_G> Lunatic - no, we
thought Brian was a lucky man that day... ga
<dgrequeen> Did Brian?
<StunnerLuver4> I think MM was
the lucky one
<NecKRx> Poor Brian, always
getting lucky the wrong way
<Lunatic> this is one eps I
would be dying to see the out takes...
<SadGeezer> Lex:I have to go,

across the pond to Sad
<SadGeezer> bye all, thanks for
<dgrequeen> Bye Sad
<Night-gaunt> See ya Sad. Nice
running into you again.
* SadGeezer waves
<Praxilla> Are we going to get
to see out takes for this S4?
<Vigdis> Yes!! An Outtakes and
Bloopers DVD would be delightful!
<Lex_G> Praxilla - oh I'm sure
at some point or other... ga
<PeridotEyes> *pe waves wads of
American dollars*Outtakes, please!
<NecKRx> For a fist fulla Yen
* drat suggests PE wave scads of
frilly panties and leather accoutrements instead.....
<NecKRx> hehehe Thodin in
<Lex_G> All frilly panties
should be sent straight to Chateau Gigeroff (let's bypass the petty bureaucrats
<PeridotEyes> *ok, whatever
bribe works, he's got* Lookie lookie, leather undies
<angelmay> Would cotton briefs
<Praxilla> so you don't want
the old lady pantaloons?
<Splarka> wool bloomers?
<drat> consider it done ;)
<theFrey> What part do you wish
you could have played on Lexx that went to someone else?
<Lex_G> theFrey - none that I
can think of ... some parts I never intended to play anyway... ga
<Raven> Lex, who is your
favourite Lexx villain?
<dgrequeen> I thought Kai
already took care of all the petty bureaucrats
<Lex_G> Raven - Prince or
<theFrey> no Dgr, I still live
<Vigdis> Starglider says, they
bred... It's been a while.
<Lex_G> be right back
* theFrey shudders at the thought of
working this chat log into something understandable.
* dgrequeen pat pats Frey
<dgrequeen> and thanks her
lucky stars it isn't *her* that has to do it
* Praxilla pat pats dgre, since we're
<Night-gaunt> Lex: The crew of
the Lexx fall through one of those convenient bruises in the fabric of spacetime,
and materialise in another sci-fi TV show and promptly trash it. Which series
gets raided, and what happens to the most irritating of its characters?
<Night-gaunt> D'oh :)
<PeridotEyes> I would love to
see Star Trek TOS meet up with the denizens of Lexx
<drat> "Lexx, destroy
those Borg ships, please.""Sorry, Stan, I missed."
<NecKRx> "Make it so,
<Lex_G> I'm back
<Night-gaunt> Or TNG /
voyager... Stan tries to score with the female stars... and against all odds
succeeds each time.... :)
<theFrey> welcome back
<Lex_G> Nightgaunt - for me, it
would have to be "60 Minutes"... ga
<theFrey> ohhh good one
<Parasite> lex: you got craig
charles and hattie hayridge in on lexx, did you try and get any other RedDwarf
<Lex_G> Parasite - I don't
think so, but CC and HH were a hoot.... ga
<Valdron> Who's your favourite
guest star so far?
<Raven> Tim Curry!
<Lex_G> Valdron - so many cool
peeps to choose from I'd hate to leave anybody out, but Tim Curry is damn near
the top of the list... ga
<Night-gaunt> While I'm in a
flippant mood, I remember you saying in the documentary material on the DVDs
that you wanted Douglas Hurd or Margaret Thatcher to play Yottskry... are there
any other politicians of any nationality that you think could have shone on
<Lex_G> Yes, Bill Clinton
would've made a great Huff, Tony Blair would've been okay as Fifi, and Gerhard
Schroeder is a natural for Bunny... ga
<PeridotEyes> you did better as
* Parasite hears the mention of bunny
and wipes the drool from the corner of his mouth;)
<Vigdis> Lex, Was Tim a lot of
fun to play with?
<Lex_G> Vigdis - yes, immensely
* Praxilla doesn't want to know what
kind of "fun" Mr. G has in mind
<Night-gaunt> UN Secretary
general Kofi Annan as Dr. Longbore...
<Lex_G> exactly, NightGaunt....
<theFrey> I want to know why
they didn’t hog tie Curry into a brunnen-g wig
* drat thinks 'bad hair' was one of
the reasons Tim Curry's character was abandoned
<Valdron> How about the guests
in fourth season
<Valdron> Who stood out, for
good or bad
<Lex_G> Valdron - Louis Del
Grande and Britt Ekland... ga
<Jooon|zZzZz> as part of the
non sleeping german collective Jooon sees Gerhard Schröder's butt wrapped in
american colored clothes in front of him
<Valdron> Britt really struck
me as an archetype for an older Xev, same sort of hair, look, accent, figure,
<Valdron> Was that accidental,
or was there a trace of intention in that?
<Lex_G> Valdron - accidental,
<Valdron> I figured as much.But
it's still an interesting overlap.
<Lex_G> Valdron - yes I
<Lex_G> I have a good Schroeder
story - he visited the set in
<Lex_G> Jean Chretien visited
the set of, I think, Gametown.... ga
<AZeeD> lex, 2 questions: 1)
ALL seasons are coming to dvd right? 2) who's going to be in the
<Lex_G> AZeeD - not my
department, sorry, but I hope to be there... ga
<AZeeD> k thanks!
<aleck> Azeed -- All seasons,
all the time.
<dgrequeen> How did Minna
Aaltonen get chosen to play Vlad?
<Lex_G> dgr - we found her in
<dgrequeen> she was perfect
<Vigdis> theFrey, do you notice
that the wig question remains unanswered?
<drat> wig envy perhaps?
<Lex_G> wig?Wig? what?
<Vigdis> Why didn't Tm Curry
wear a Brunneb-G wig?
<Cerri> Too much like the wig
he wore in RH?
<Lex_G> Vigdis - yes I think he
didn't want to really wear a wig, but it was one of those things where you go
"well, it's Tim Curry, no one will care"... I suppose it could be
argued that he really should've worn a wig, but in the end we were so happy with
his performance that we said screw it... ga
<dgrequeen> that was a wig????
<theFrey> really, he was
tricked out for that. Brunnen-g wigs would have been a snap
<drat> heh no need to put MM in
a wig-snit it the Guest-star's wig looked better than his did
<Raven> Well, Tim Curry has
dressed up as a clown (Stephen King's IT) So a wig would be nothing in
<Night-gaunt> Hey, Lex: In a
somewhat illegal state of mind, you have broken into the post-production area,
cut the usual theme tune and inserted a piece of pop music (as played by one of
those modern beat combos we hear so much about these days) in its place. Which
song is it likely to be?
<Lex_G> Nightgaunt - good
one.... how bout Hank Williams' "Settin' the Woods on Fire"?
<Night-gaunt> Like it :)
<Lex_G> As recorded by Eminem,
of course... ga
<PeridotEyes> eek! too scary!
<Lex_G> Yeah, but Celine Dion
* dgrequeen passes out from the
horror of Lex's choices
<Night-gaunt> Eminem, Johnny
Cash and Barry Manilow should really get back together... they rocked...
* Praxilla joins dgre
<Lex_G> okay, okay - The Cure
sings "Man of Constant Sorrow"... ga
* Cerri fans dgre & Praxilla
<PeridotEyes> *[e runs away in
* Praxilla mutters, Retire, Celine,
* Vigdis sways on her feet but
manages to remain concious
* Parasite throws buckets of water
over the passed out people
<Lex_G> Leonard Cohen singing
"Oooops I did it again".... ga
<eo> that could be good
<Night-gaunt> As a duet with
<Splarka> Yanni "I wear my
sunglasses at night"
<AZeeD> :| eep...
* aleck shoots drink out of his nose.
* Lex_G cranks up the Ozark Mountain
Daredevils and lights another joint
<Vigdis> LOL, Sparlkla
<fx> would you care to talk
about rutger hauer's ideas for his character ;)
<Lex_G> f/x - oh god... ummm...
Rutger was a very naughty boy ... ga
<Raven> do tell :)
<Cerri> HOW NAUGHTY??
<Lunatic> we wanna know :)
<Doffy> details! we want
<fx> more about rutger please?
<Night-gaunt> Or at the very
least scandalous filth!
<Vigdis> Tell us about Rutger...
I am the proud possessor of Bog's Pattern Jar!
<Lex_G> Basically I thought
that Rutger - although a great actor - was in a bit of a rut.... and I noticed
some of his acting choices seemed to me to recycled bits of Blade Runner....
<Raven> Lex, is Lexx your
favourite thing that you have ever worked on?
* drat turns on the landing lights
<Lex_G> Raven - probably,
although El Mundo del Lundo to this day was a great shitload of fun to do.... ga
<PeridotEyes> is there any
possibility of getting el mundo down here in the lower 48/
<Lex_G> PEyes - I don't think
<Splarka> lexxual hauersment
<Valdron> Unterstadt? I've seen
that on Splarka's site as "lexx and jeff's other show'
<PeridotEyes> does El Mundo air
<Lex_G> El Mundo died a quiet
death on the Comedy Network.... ga
<Valdron> I've always thought
that was a shame.
<PeridotEyes> thanks for the
<Valdron> They'd air it at 0
<Lex_G> Unterstadt was a film
script Jeff & I sold in
<Vigdis> Okay... Tell us about
<Valdron> ahhhh, ok
<Raven> Lex, Why did Bog wear
that thing on his nose?
<Lex_G> Raven - who the hell
knows?Because he's an "actor", I guess..... ga
<PeridotEyes> there isn't
enough funny stuff in the world these days
<Lex_G> PEyes - not true; I
just watched Schindler's List.... ga
<Praxilla> What do you think of
the Lexx's shape?
<PeridotEyes> was the thing on
his nose part of a clarinet?
<Lex_G> Praxilla - ummm, I like
<Raven> Lex, what was used to
make the pattern substance?
<Lex_G> Raven - garbage and
body parts... ga
<Lex_G> PEyes - a nose
clarinet.... yeah, that would've appealed to him... ga
<Night-gaunt> Lex: A meteorite
hits the earth, bare inches away from you. Bending over to investigate, you find
yourself bathed in cosmic radiation, granting you powers beyond the reach of
mere humans. What powers have you developed as a consequence, and to what end do
you use 'em?
<Lex_G> NightGaunt - I have the
amazing ability to... cloud men's minds... ga
<Night-gaunt> What...? I...
don't understand... where am I, anyway?
<dgrequeen> I thought sure you
were going to say X-ray vision, to help out the airlines
<PeridotEyes> but not womens'
<Lex_G> There will be no need
to fly again.Ever.
<Splarka> Timothy Leary had
<Lex_G> Sadly, my powers on the
female species aren't quite as dramatic... ga
<AZeeD> lex, why and how did
lyekka come back? i missed that part on the episode.
<Lex_G> AZeeD - we are very
lazy writers, and whenever we need Lyekka to come back, we just (gasp) make it
<theFrey> noooooo, no ST
<Raven> Lex, did you like the
idea of basing a whole season on 1 story?<Lex_G> Raven - it's an
interetsing challenge... I think we wanted to make each season quite different
from the last... ga
(Fire and Water in Season 3)
<PeridotEyes> IMHO, y'all
succeeded in makingevery season of Lexx different from the last, and wonderfully
<Lex_G> danke, PEyes.... ga
<Valdron> I've heard that Minna/Vlad
was only going to be a one shot, but after you had her, you decided to keep her
around and use her in more episodes.Truth or Fiction?
<PeridotEyes> whose idea was it
to put a flowerpot on the plant lady's head?
<Lex_G> PEyes - some sicko in
<theFrey> Last call Peeps, 10
minute warning. (for real this time)
<Parasite> TTFN y'all
<Lex_G> Valdron - she was so
good we wanted to bring her back, so we did... ga
<AZeeD> like he said,
"we're lazy writers. if we want (insert character here) to come back, we
just (gasp) make it so.
<theFrey> Lex, did you like the
label on you Brigadoom CD?
<Lex_G> theFrey - yeah, tres,
<Splarka> ahh.. what costume in
your writing do you think was most/least successfully realized?
<Lex_G> Splarka - hmmm, maybe
<Lex_G> and Doc Rainbow's, of

<Arania> thanks very much

Rainbow's headdress, it was wonderfully deranged
<Lunatic> awh...yeah we notices
you seem to lack fabric to finish said costume, Lex...there was so many holes in
<eo> Lex: thanks for a rather
unique and brilliant sci.fi series :)
* Lunatic coulda fix that in no time
<Lex_G> It has been my pleasure
to chat with you, and I want to thank each and everyone of you for being so

rather have Martha Stewart's fans?
<dgrequeen> we're going to miss
Lexx a LOT~

<Lex_G> Splarka - I have
several of Martha Stewart's fans tied up in the basement as we speak.... ga
<dgrequeen> Good, that's where

into curtains and blankets
<PeridotEyes> nitey nite
<Splarka> "Now lets glue
some acorns on this dangly bit here" "ouch!" "hey, where did
they go" "I reabsorbed them"
<Vigdis> As long as Martha
doesn't choose to use plaid...
<Lex_G> And on that note,
<Praxilla> hey, I got a quick
question, was it an inconsistancy that Kai could speak to the aLexx?
