Lucy Butler Week - Day Six: Competition News and Postcard Push Pt II


Ladies and gentlemen, it is that time of the week to announce the winner of our Lights Camera Caption Competition and to be honest it was far too hard to judge. The level of entries I received for this were outstanding so the only option left was to choose an entry at random and I am delighted to announce that Laila Kurlak is the lucky winner with the entry you will see below.

Thanks to each and every one of you for supporting this week and this campaign and, more importantly, congratulations Laila, I hope you enjoy your autographed photograph which will be winging it's way to you shortly.

Now here's my thing. You will see below one more retro postcard, this time taking the form of an conceptual lobby poster and I hope each and every one of you will send one more postcard to 20th Century Fox, let's have one last push in honour of Lucy Butler Week.

The original file for this image was designed A1 size and for every individual who takes a photograph of their completed postcard before mailing it I will send you the original file to print as a poster as I have received a number of enquiries about the possibility of turning the designs into posters. It's my way of saying thank you to you all.

MICHAEL BROIDY
20th Century Fox

LUCY BUTLER WEEK - DAY FIVE - A ROOM WITH NO REVIEW!

As you know, it has always been of great importance to me to increase this campaign's presence in the form of video promotion and content. Josef has taken that mantle and run with it and we are proud to add another good soul to our team of growing video alchemists. Comics, collectibles, entertainment and wrestling guru DiRT has a number of successful review channels and websites of his own and happens to be a Millennium fan as well.

He has kindly agreed to lend his enjoyable 'masked avenger' style approach to Millennium, releasing a new review for us every Thursday. As it's Lucy Butler Week what better place to start with but 'A Room With No View.'

Whilst our new found friend and ally does the hard work behind the scenes here's where you come in. Agree with his review? Disagree with his review? We want to hear from you whatever the opinion but, most importantly, we want you to thank him and make him more than welcome in the process. I, for one, will be looking forward to each Thursday to see what each new review brings.

So lend your considerable support to the man and go visit his own websites and find out what it's all about. Remember, every video made for the this campaign is an indispensable way of reaching out to a potential new campaigner. Welcome, DiRT!

Lucy Butler Week - Day Four - T-SHIRT THURSDAY!


Roll up, roll up! Time to get your infernal claws on a couple of exclusives courtesy of designer and illustrator, Barry Renshaw. Those in the know will already be aware that Barry has created an exclusive range of merchandise for this campaign. Taking subtle nods from some of the finest episodes on the canon, Barry has designed a stunning range of T-Shirts, the profit from which is being saved towards a print ad campaign that we so desperately need.

Despite being unduly busy, Barry has created two designs in support of Lucy Butler Week and I am sure you will agree with me that these are just fantastic (click on the images to open them in a new window and view them in better detail.)

Who can forget the scene in Antipas in which Lucy gives Frank Black the bbenefit of her *ahem* attention in the Little Red Wagon Motel? Fond of that episode? Well now you can wear that pride quite literally. It doesn't stop there, oh no, when you've that many souls to cater for our Legion Tee should appease the fashionistas out there regardless of which personality is at the fore.

As always, everything we do has a serious message: purchasing a tee from our store raises a small amount of money that will allow us to consider options hitherto unavailable to us so please consider making a donation and looking dapper in the process.

Please note, our merchandise store is currently being upgraded and our previous designs are unavailable to view at present. Please check back shortly to view the complete range when the upgrade has completed. Thank you.

LUCY BUTLER WEEK - DAY THREE - THE POSTCARD DRIVE!


Amidst the competitions and devilish frivolity that is Lucy Butler Week there's a serious mandate bubbling beneath the surface. BackToFrankBlack needs you, it has always needed you and we urge you to join us in one more push to get our efforts recognised by 20th Century Fox.

We know you have written letters and mailed polaroids and we thank you for that, we know you continue to champion us in the places you frequent and we are indebted to you for this but one more push won't hurt. We know you will not let Frank Black down. Let the defiant spirit of Ms. Butler inspire you.


I have designed five postcards, based on the old retro-crime thriller books that peppered the bookshop shelves of my youth (befitting of our own, timeless femme fatale I thought) one for every episode Lucy Butler featured in. What I need you to do is print them off. Doesn't matter what on, just print them.

Write a brief message on the back asking for a Millennium Movie and finish the message with our web address, www.backtofrankblack.com and send these postcards to the address below and we are one step nearer to realising out goal. We will not bring Frank Black back. You will. Let's bring this baby home eh?

LUCY BUTLER WEEK! DAY TWO - EXCLUSIVE DVD COMPETITION


Time for a little competition methinks. As we are spending a week in the nefarious, yet utterly alluring, company of Lucy Butler it is my pleasure to give you all the chance to win a copy of The Entrance that Sarah-Jane Redmond starred in, along with a healthy contingent of X-Files and Millennium cast members I might add, and it's a movie I confess to having watched over and over again. Sarah-Jane is simply brilliant in it but kudos must also be given to her co-stars for such an enjoyable outing.



THE ENTRANCE begins when a young drug dealer (Michael Eklund) seeks out Detective Porhowski (Sarah-Jane Redmond) to tell her about a deadly game that he has been forced to compete in. Further investigations uncover a portal into a deadly netherworld, which is inhabited by an unholy entity who is out for blood. Be on the look out for other Ten Thirteen Alumni in the shape of Ron Sauvé, C. Ernst Harth, Jerry Wasserman, Frank Cassini and more besides.

Please Note: This competition is now closed. The winner has been notified by email and a copy of the DVD has been mailed to them. Congratulations to the winner and my thanks to everyone who took the time to enter.

Lucy Butler Week Begins: Love is Blue!

Allow me to introduce you all to a week of devilry and debauchery (maybe not so much of the latter) in honour of Frank Black's most memorable nemesis, the Devil's liege herself, Lucy Butler. I am a huge admirer of that character and of the outstanding work that Sarah-Jane Redmond contributed to our beloved show and it is an honour to be spending a week in her nefarious company (Lucy that is, not Sarah-Jane of course.)

In time honoured tradition we kick off our week of themed Blog entries with the music video we know you have all been waiting for. Josef has crossed the abyss and braved the foul stench of Hades itself in order to assemble this infernal cinematic offering. Grab the Apple Spiced Pancakes folks, it's time for Lucy Butler!

video

Now I know I say this every week, and mean it, but this is undoubtedly Josef's finest work to date and I do hope you waited right to the end of the credits? You didn't? Time to view it again methinks. So here's hoping you will share you comments with Josef as always, every new video he makes brings a potential new Millennium fan to our attention so we value, highly, his contribution. If he doesn't deserve kudos for one of the most mesmerising video intros I have ever seen then I don't know who does frankly.

So, here's looking forward to a week of fun, competitions, an exclusive interview and more besides. Till then, well, love is blue isn't it?
