In late 2008, Polaroid Co. plans to entirely discontinue their line of remaining polaroid films (Type 600 and Spectra are among the popular used labels).

This is a classic, time-and-tried art form. Don't let them stop manufacturing it!

The television series - Season four

Follow the adventures of a group of desperate fugitives aboard the Lexx, “the most powerful destructive force in the two universes.” The Lexx is a massive “living” bio-engineered spacecraft that resembles a wingless dragonfly. It is capable of destroying a planet with ease, and then eats the debris as a source of fuel. The crew of the Lexx are motivated largely by fear, lust and hunger: factors that gradually come to dominate their lives more and more.

A cult hit known for its quirky, sexually charged adult storylines “boldly” taking Sci-Fi where others had not gone before!

Look out for the appearance of Vlad (episode 7 onwards)!

Navigation problems?

If you have recently installed Service Pack 2 or have just started using IE6 (Internet Explorer 6), you may be seeing message alerts like this one?

This site uses scripts to make active content like: 'rollover buttons', 'drop down menus' and other design elements run on this web site.
We DON'T secretly collect any information on you, nor do we save any tracking data or cookies on your computer


If your browser displays a message like this, you should right click on it, and select Allow Blocked Content.

What is active content and why does Internet Explorer restrict it?

Active content is content that relies on computer code called a script to work properly.  Certain scripts can be written to collect information from your computer in ways you might not approve of, possibly damage data on your computer, install software on your computer without your consent, or allow someone else to control your computer remotely.
This was NOT the case with our scripts (which are only for site navigation), but IE6 is not smart enough to detect bad from good - so it is up to you to judge each web site you visit.
