Lady-X in Metro Newspaper

Lady-X just got a mention in today's free METRO newspaper for the UK 10/10/05. It is in the column about "The best sites for...Webisodes" on p25.

It says:
" LADY X Films
An interesting idea for a spy/underworld thriller, this has a mystery female at the centre of every three to seven-minute episode. Each story comes from an independent filmmaker from around the world and the tale must start with a 'mystery lady' arriving in a town to give instructions to the local gangster/operative/whatever. After that they can put their unique style on the episode. www.ladyxfilms.com "

So looks like all those who have done the Lady X films continue to gain their bit fame and perhaps got a lot of more hits on the website today after this article. Inspiring more film makers to perhaps even greater accomplishments.

Well done to those Lady X'ers

All I can say is, after all the hard work those guys put into Lady X, they don't deserve to be called "filk makers". I don't know what that means, but it sounds nasty... ;)

Congrats everyone!

Is this a sign that someone should start thinking about organizing a "Lady-Y"?

... Dylan?

Anyone who's ever been to a science fiction convention knows what I mean.

So Lady X still lives! I thought she was in seclusion in Belorussia after a botched plastic surgical procedure. Now suddenly she winds up in the UK in a major publication. Just like her. A well planned smoke screen, no doubt.

Thanks for the head's up, Christopher. That's great to hear. I'll keep an eye on the site stats and let you guys know if there are any spikes in the number of visitors.

There was definitely a response to the mention in Metro. For that day, we went from our normal 450-500Mb daily bandwidth usage up to 2.1Gb. Next day it dropped to 1.3GB, still substantially higher than normal.

The number of actual visitors hasn't really increased that much over the normal daily average.. which means the people who visited were taking the time to watch quite a few of the episodes.

We've experienced several spikes since the series concluded--one about a year ago suddenly put us over our 5Gb per day limit. Still wondering what caused that.

Fun. It's good to know the viewers are still coming.

So what ever happened to the Lady X site? Are the films still available somewhere? Did the finale ever get made?
