Site Update
Hi there. Haven't had time to add anything to the site this week because I've been busy with little William.

I'll hopefully be able to add all the many transcripts I have piled up here to my site pretty soon, just as soon as I catch up on some sleep!

In the meantime enjoy tomorrow night's season finale episode, Existence.

The Sydney Morning Herald had a story titled The Ex Factor, about The X-Files without Mulder and Scully. You can read it on my Australian Media page for June.

This week's TV Week has a review of The X-Files Movie mentioned below and gives it 3 stars. There is a photo of Tea Leoni eating an ice cream in NW's Stars Without Makeup story this week.

There's been a lot of David Duchovny and House Of Mirth news over the past week but I've been occupied elsewhere so I hope you've been keeping up with it all.

My News
Wow! I've never been so excited ... Tuesday June 12 was the best day of my life with the birth of our son who we've named William. He's named after my grandfather and my wife Kelly's grandfather.

William just so happens to be a grand X-Files name too! Fox William Mulder, both Mulder and Scully's father, Scully's brother and the actors David William Duchovny and William B Davis! Our little William will get plenty of enjoyment from The X-Files in years to come as I show him all my videos.

William was a big baby, weighing in at 4450g and 57cm in length!

Site Update
No real X-Files news over the past few days. As for this site, I've just tidied up a few pages here and there. I still have a truckload of Australian stories that Lucy transcribed for me to add to the site. Just haven't got time at the moment unfortunately.

For those who are interested (see previous news) I'm still not a dad. My wife is actually due on Sunday, June 10. So, this could be the last update for a while. Make sure you check out the Sunday newspapers which should have David Duchovny news, hopefully. For those in Sydney who will get to see DD, have fun.

Mag News
Had a browse through the newsagent's yesterday and noticed that in this week's TV Week, there's a small story on The X-Files with a pic of David Duchovny. It's old news, mentioning that there will be a season 9, that DD won't be in it (maybe a few cameos?) and that The Lone Gunmen series has been axed. There's also a movie review of House Of Mirth (3 stars) and a video review of Vertical Limit (with Nicholas Lea ... it gets just 2 stars)

In NW there's a story on Hollywod diets, with a pic of Gillian Anderson next to her favoured Sugar Busters diet.

ThanX Lucy for also passing on that news, and for her transcript of the July TV Soap article on Gillian Anderson, mentioned last month. You can read it on a new House of Mirth page for Australian movie reviews and articles. I've also added a review from Greater Union and channel 9's Sunday program (see below.

As well as David Duchovny coming to Australia in less than two weeks, another X-Files actor, Brian Thompson (Alien Bounty Hunter) is already in Australia and will be appearing from June 8-11 at the Multiverse 4 science fiction convention in Melbourne, along with Anthony Daniels (Star Wars), Virginia Hey (Farscape/Mad Max) and others. For further details check the Multiverse website.

Crew Activities
This from TV Guide, this story on Chris Carter:
X-Files creator Chris Carter is developing a project for the big screen - but this film won't feature Mulder and Scully. "We made a deal some time ago with Miramax-Dimension to write-produce and for me to direct a movie," he tells TV Guide Online. "It's in the vein of Elephant Man and Good Will Hunting - something akin to those two movies." So, it won't be sci-fi? "No, but it deals with the limits of science."
I assume he's referring to the Ted Serios movie that was mooted last year. However, there's no news of it at Internet Movie Database, although they list another movie called Riptide, co-written by Chris Carter and directed by Rob Bowman, with a US summer 2001 release date. However the details are pretty skimpy (no cast for example) so I have my doubts on that one.

Rob Bowman is also directing another upcoming movie called Reign of Fire and starring Matthew McConaughey and Christian Bale.

Daniel Sackheim has directed a movie called The Glass House starring Diane Lane and Leelee Sobieski. According to Hoyts it was released in Australia on May 26, but again I have been able to find any details on the movie anywhere else.
