  1. Each year we celebrate Millennium's Anniversary. On October 25th 2020 it will have been 24 years since the series premiered and Millennium is still as topical and relevant as it was almost a quarter century ago, when Millennium first premiered on October 25th way back in 1996. However you choose to celebrate, consider starting a new run of episode watching tonight in tribute of this wonderful series and of the creative talents of Millennium's cast and crew. This is who we are

  3. Hi! Here it is finally. I did this Millennium video (and a little twist with the music) as a small homage to the show and I dedicated especially to Lance, the guys from BTFB and you guys from "This is who we are net" ;) for keeping the show alive. The thing is that I tried uploading it to youtube and vimeo but no matter what quality I used it looked awful. The video weight is around 300mb and when I download it from Youtube (after I upload it there) it weighted 23mb! (they also change the size of the video to 1280). So you can imagine the poor quality and my frustation. That´s why I uploaded to wetransfer to share it with all :) It would only takes 10-15 minutes to download it. I think it looks and sounds pretty good. The link to download will last for only a couple of days because wetransfer erase it. But if that happens and someone ask for it, of course I will upload it again. https://we.tl/F0YgOyjsQv I left you a snap from the video as a sample :) aLe :) ps: congrats for the upgrade of the SITE!!!!!! GREat work!!

  4. I've often found that to be so very true. Just figuring out why something doesn't work or that I ended up with the wrong answer can lead to much better understanding. Meanwhile, this was posted by one of my FB friends:

  6. Oh...I think I'm responsible for that. I've been re-posting my old Millennium music videos over at the Facebook Millennium Group page and sometimes point people to TIWWA. Note that I haven't uploaded them all since the videos have almost reached the number 50...which will happen with the next one. Long time since I logged in here, might stop by weekly or so now that I'm back in the music video editing again...for now. Cheers from Iceland and don't be dark. - Jósef

  7. Hi all, To explain the covers first of all, variant covers are used in the comics industry as an incentive for the retailers to order in a certain number of copies, i.e. for every 10 copies you get variant a, but every 25 you get variant b, and so on. Marvel have done a massive variant cover strategy with their new STAR WARS title recently. The main problem comic book retailers have is that when they advance order in numbers of a certain title, they pay for it up front and have to sell what they have bought to make their money back. So in many cases shops will only order in what they know they will sell. For the speculator market, they will buy up variant covers on the gamble that they will somehow become rare and in demand and they can make a profit on the secondary market, such as ebay. In the 1990's this kind of speculator market contributed to a boom and bust situation for the industry, but that's a different story. For MM, there are the two artwork covers and 1 photo cover (listed as a subscription cover) - this is common with IDW's licensed titles like STAR TREK etc. There is zero difference in the pages inbetween the covers- the story is exactly the same. The 9.4+ NM means the comic is Near Mint in terms of it's condition and that it has been rated 9.4 out of 10 (10 being mint, untouched by human hands etc). Traditionally licensed titles don't have much resale value unless the artist or writer working on them becomes extremely popular (ie Charlie Adlard, a British artist who illustrated the early X-FILES comics from Topps in the 90's went on to work on Walking Dead). At this point I hope group members who may not be comic book readers will make the trip to the local comic store (find yours here: https://www.comicshoplocator.com/storelocator)and ask for it- otherwise there are plenty of ebay re-sellers, or you can order direct from the publisher at https://www.idwpublishing.com/product/millennium-1/. Also I'd ask for members to tweet @joeharris @IDWPublishing if you have read and enjoyed the comic. It may veer Millennium off in a direction we might not have expected, and it can't make up for the last decade and half of Millennium being absent from our TV screens, but if IDW can see there is an audience voting with their wallets and supporting them online, then we might get more Frank Black, and that's only a good thing. In the meantime you can also buy/read Joe Harris' script for Millennium #1 and the X Files at his Etsy shop here: https://www.etsy.com/uk/shop/JoeHarrisComics cheers

  8. I don't often visit the Haven these days, but someone started a thread recently about shooting scripts. My previous "final" XF project involved collecting all the stuff I had collected digitally over the years and stuffing that into pdf files, one for each season. A very kind Havenite, called philiater, has hosted those on her website. They are huge files, but if anyone's interested in those, here's the link: https://www.mitchpileggi.net/The_X-Files/Libby/ As far as I can remember, those files included typed copies of the main aspects of shooting scripts that I had. But as they were typed copies, they didn't include all the minutiae of the shooting scripts. I didn't have a scanner back then. But, prompted by that Haven thread, I have now scanned the twenty 1013 shooting scripts I have here and uploaded them to my Dropbox account: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/yqqoh1v6xwh4ofm/AADEMP6uYz1QTytKRuEHLe7-a?dl=0 There are a couple of MM scripts, as well as HR and TLG, but mostly XF.

I was a fairly active member back in the day and I'm looking forward to being part of the TIWWA community again 🙂 Not sure if you remember me Old Man but hi all the same and I hope your safe and well. Hope we can get some of the old gang back together: Gunslinger, Lathey, Chrisnu, ethsnafu, etc. Shame I've lost my post count and status btw 😛

  12. Snow Files of the Week: "Jack O' Lantern/Battery/790 Days" from "MillenniuM", episode "The Curse of Frank Black" (1997). What would Halloween be without "The Curse of Frank Black"? A very popular episode amongst fans of "MillenniuM", it features everything you could hope for on this night: Strange happenings, Demons, black cats, witches, ghosts and an overall dark and tense atmosphere. Mark brings the moody episode to a higher level with his dark and spooky music. At the end of the episode, Mark even incorporates a piece of classical music into his score, the "Sarabande" by Georg Friedrich Händel. The music was released on the first volume of "MillenniuM" music by La-La Land Records in 2008. This edition sold out and was re-released, limited to 1.000 copies. Happy Halloween!

  14. People's picks on these is interesting. I really liked many of them, including "The Fourth Horseman"/"The Time Is Now", "Somehow, Satan Got Behind Me", Midnight of The Century, Jose Chung's Doomsday Defense and "A Room with No View" to name some recently mentioned. Also liked The Judge, and "Matryoshka" which I thought raised some interesting possibilities for future episodes that never materialized. Also ...Thirteen Years Later just for entertainment value. Owls and Roosters. The Beginning and the End for mythology. The Mikado I loved--definitely top 5. In Arcadia Ego was good as was Sense and Antisense and Goodbye Charlie (top 10). Liked the mythology episodes the most. Season 2 (Morgan and Wong) was the best for me, but I've noticed people are really committed to their favorites on this show. I guess there was something for everyone. Many really liked the Darin Morgan episodes, though I have to admit, I didn't care for yhem when they first aired. It was after the show was cancelled and I bought the DVDs I grew to appreciate them for the absolute gems they are. Shows just how malleable the show could be. Today, I don't think that malleability would work as well.

  15. Hollywood Legend LANCE HENRIKSEN wins IMPACT AWARD https://blog.hollywoodhorrorfest.com/hollywood-legend-lance-henriksen-wins-impact-award/?fbclid=IwAR2Z5vJ79XOW8Nz9Cc0WeeLHTB57eDrsx7Ju_xHZbP34Dnvh_Kz0w97lE3k Hollywood legend LANCE HENRIKSEN received the coveted IMPACT AWARD last Friday August 9th at HOLLYWOOD HORRORFEST 2019. The star of film classics ALIENS, THE TERMINATOR and NEAR DARK was happily surprised on-stage with the award presentation by festival founder MILES FLANAGAN and journalist & author PAT JANKIEWICZ. Mr. HENRIKSEN was at the festival as part of Friday’s EXORCISM AT 60,00 FEET Q&A panel and had no idea he was about to be given the award. The IMPACT AWARD is presented to an artist whose work has positively impacted genre filmmaking. And with a body of work that not only features the aforementioned classics but also includes THE RIGHT STUFF, JAGGED EDGE, THE PIT & THE PENDULUM, TALES FROM THE CRYPT, ALIEN 3, HARD TARGET, THE QUICK & THE DEAD, THE X FILES and MILLENNIUM to name but a few, Mr. HENRIKSEN truly deserves this accolade. As several cast members of EXORCISM AT 60,000 FEET received festival awards on-stage Mr. HENRIKSEN joked, “Well I hope I don’t receive an award” only to be clearly moved when the IMPACT AWARD was presented to him “This Is Your Life” style. Previous recipients include HALLOWEEN co-composer ALAN HOWARTH and the late, great character actor DICK MILLER.

  16. Sorry to have learnt only today of Joe's passing on the 16th June. I went on his fb profile to wish him happy birthday. He would have been 54 today. I only knew him through TIWWA, and his enthusiasm for the show and his collaboration on the virtual season 6 was invaluable. The impact he had on his friends and family is evident in the many condolences, and we can only hope we can all be remembered as well as he is. Farewell, High Plains Drifter.

  17. The one thing I have learned throughout my life is that, when someone crosses over into the spirit realm, they are still alive, it's their flesh that ceases to live. We can't see their body alive anymore and interact with them physically, but they have never left us, they have just stepped out of the flesh into the spirit, a realm of divine love. They can still communicate with us in spirit, if WE are receptive. Know and remember that we will have eternity to spend with our loved ones. Amen to no more pain and misery. And what a day to cross over, Father's Day. Spiritually speaking, to me it's a compliment. I say this because my mother was born on Easter Sunday, and crossed over on Easter Sunday. A compliment. This poem was given to me after my oldest son crossed over, and I share it with all the love in my heart. Do Not Stand at My Grave and Weep by Mary Elizabeth Frye Do not stand at my grave and weep. I am not there; I do not sleep. I am a thousand winds that blow; I am the diamond glints on snow. I am the sunlight on ripened grain; I am the gentle autumn's rain. Do not stand at my grave and mourn. I am the dew-flecked grass at dawn. Where tranquil oceans meet the land I am the footprints in the sand To guide you through the weary day. I am still here; I'll always stay. When you wake up to morning's hush I am the swift uplifting rush Of quiet birds in circled flight. I am the stars that shine at night. Do not stand at my grave and cry. I am not there; I did not die.

  19. I like to think of Millennium like a great album, a classic that is very much of its time but also forever relevant. Each generation that finds it will discover their own way of relating to it. We, on this forum and those on the other fan groups on social media, have all been affected by it. It changes the way we view the world, as great works should. And if the world does seem darker than it was back then, I think we can be assured there is, somewhere out there, a Frank Black, still trying to keep out the darkness from seeping into our own yellow house.

  20. I am still saddened by the lack of MM comics out there, so continuing to draw Lance whenever I can inbetween other work for a fan piece. Here is a mock up of a painting I did based on a recent Lance TV appearance, with the trade dress from the IDW comics a few years ago, but with a little TIWWA tweak.

  23. Hi Earthnut, thanks for the suggestions. I just wondering which video that was? Just to clarify, Libby hasn't retired! She is still co-admin but taking (a well-earned) break. Hi Merowig, thanks for the feedback and suggestions. I was always intrigued by that S2 opening! The episode guide profile page does check for articles and reviews, we wrote it that way in case any news ones get added, and the articles themselves link back to the episode profile. I'll definitely look at adding some extra links to those relevant downloads to make them quicker and easier to find and for other episodes too, good call! @Viivi wrote that great article, we are very fortunate to have her as our resident art expert and @SadEyes as our Mark Snow and soundtracks expert; a formidable team if ever there was one! But don't tell them, they'll want a pay rise.

  25. BB, people have a bad opinion because most of the time Millennials seem stupid and uneducated. They aren't taught cursive, phonics or regular math, they don't know how to count change back, and rarely get their noses out of their electronic devices, for without them they seem helpless. So glad my kids are Generation X, and I am very proud of them. Also glad Generation Y is fake. It made no sense. There wasn't one particular site, I just Googled "custom t-shirts" and it brought up a bunch with very affordable prices. As I said, to me it depends on the quality of the t-shirt, and I for one don't want to buy one that shrinks too much after the first wash and I can no longer wear it. I'd rather spend a little more for the quality, and of course pick a place with a 4-5 star rating. It's a good idea seesthru, but my tongue got tied the first time I tried to say it... Appreciate your comments. Keep them coming.

  30. another positive update 17 minutes ago from Joe's wife Bernadette " An update on Joe - today he's more alert as he not taking heavy duty drugs any more. He was able to walk around the room a few times during the day with the help of a PT. The doctors have cleared him for liquids - clear broth, jello, juice, sherbert and water. He had all three meals today. Tomorrow the kidney doctor will remove his caterer as his bowel activities improve. When we left tonight he was sitting up watching the Cards game. If you are in town and would like to visit him, I'm sure he'd love to see you. Thank you again for your continued prayers and thoughts. " keep all those best wishes , positive energy and prays coming

  31. update on Joe posted by his wonderful wife this AM @ FB ; " An update on Joe - last week he had a PET scan done and today the oncologist said everything looks really good. There are no more lesions on his spleen and lungs. The lesions on his liver have diminished in size by about 40% and the "activity", which means how the bad cells multiply, has gone down from 13 to 6 on one and from 6 to 3 on another. I'm not quite sure what these measurements are, but the fact that they are smaller/lower is a good sign. We'll talk with the oncologist surgeon next to see about the surgery to remove the colon tumor as well as the lesion on the kidney. Most likely he will have to do separate rounds of chemo for the kidney lesions, as those are definitely a separate type of cancer. For now he's at home resting. Thank you all for your continued support, prayers, good vibes and love. They are very much appreciated. " keep Joe in your thoughts and prayers as he continues to fight the good fight .

  33. I watched Millennium from the beginning, and while I wasn't allowed to watch all episodes (having only been 9 years old when the series started) I did see much of it and was always drawn in by the intensity and depth of the show and its characters. I have continued to watch as an adult since the DVDs have become available, and was able to catch up on what I had missed as a child (and by extension finally understood why there were episodes I wasn't allowed to watch, which is fairly obvious to an adult, but to a child is a constant source of vexation) and finally came to terms with my unwavering childhood fear of what I could only call a demon known as Lucy Butler. I used to have nightmares about her and even thought that in the dark I could see her cold eyes staring at me from out of that frozen mask of a face. When I first saw Sarah-Jane Redmond on the film "A Wrinkle in Time", I thought she looked familiar, but not quite making the connection. Then she cocked her head a certain way and I almost screamed aloud (I was a teenager at the time, but apparently still haunted, it seems) because it was Lucy Butler for a moment! LOL. Then she turned her head another way, and she was just an actress playing a different character. Since then, I've always been fascinated by how good of an actor Sarah-Jane Redmond is, and the diverse types of roles she can play. Anyhow, I always thought that at the end of the episode "Saturn Dreaming of Mercury", the feminine voice that Lucas used, not to mention the face seen during the distortion of his head in the fire, belonged to Lucy Butler. It wasn't clear (although you could say the long black hair was a dead giveaway) but I couldn't shake that feeling. Then, the other day, when I was watching the 3rd season over again and I got to "Saturn Dreaming of Mercury", I decided to look up Lucy Butler in the Character Profiles here on the site, and she was listed as being featured in the episode, so it was gratifying to know that if there's something I'm uncertain of, this site is here to provide the answers, especially since there really aren't any other online resources (at least that I know of) to answer questions of this kind. I think it's wonderful that this site and community is here. :) One of the questions I still have, I think that we all have, is whatever happened to "Divina", the little girl that seemed to somehow be Lucy Butler's dead child? Was she merely a projection, like Lucas Sanderson? Anyway, I'm very glad to be part of TIWWA, and intend to post more questions and comments about the series as I have them. :)

  34. I don’t do New Year’s Resolutions, especially the “lose weight” and “take more exercise” types. I mean, who wants to think about salads and jogging when we’re in the depths of winter? If I were to make resolutions like those, I’d use the ancient Roman calendar which started in March. But having a plan for writing a book or studying sounds good. The initial stages can be done while being indoors in the warm, with biscuits/cookies and mugs of hot chocolate to hand. That would suit me. Yes, less worry and stress would be a good thing for a lot of people. So, let's hope for that this year!

Isnt this at least something that we all have waited for? Its not a real trailer for an upcoming movie, but it is SOMETHING. Something new! It starts to live again! I cant tell you what great news this is in between all of this sad news and apocalyptic threats that Earthnut is posting Just kidding Darlene Also check out the high resolution Cover Artworks for the comic that you can find in the interview. Mulder doesnt look as good, but Frank looks on the spot! I really wanna know, what Lance Henriksen will be saying to that! Thanks again Rhysan!

Not sure bout the rest of the background, but im sure that i have an idea when i get there... second and third picture are first oil works, but i had to stop for today because of headaches. Will continue on it tomorrow.

  46. I've just signed up for an online course called "Understanding the Origins of Crime": https://www.open2study.com/courses/understanding-the-origins-of-crime It's a four-week course, with lectures via video. It's free. It starts on 18th November, but they seem to repeat the courses quite frequently. The Open2Study is a joint venture by several Australian universities into delivering courses to people who just want to know a bit more, or build on what they already know. I've already done one, on Basic Physics, and I'm just finishing off a second, on Chemistry. In each, there are four modules, broken into ten topics. At the end of each of the first nine topics there was a pop quiz (with hints for an incorrect answer) followed by an assessment after each last topic. If anyone is interested in joining that course, we could run our own discussions here. But, if not, there are other courses there for anyone who's looking for good, free, learning opportunities.

  48. Hi Everyone, I realize I was lax in posting the William B. Davis interview, but I wanted to give a 'head's up about this first. TIWWA's own Erin McRaven wrote up a wonderful synopsis / review of The X-Files season two episode, "Fresh Bones". I think you'll find it helpful and informative!
