New Years appreciation roll call, 2015

| No Comments | No TrackBacks


To put it mildly, this has been an incredible year for everyone that has remained a dedicated fan of The X-Files. 2015 was full of personal milestones for myself, and I suspect for many others out there.

The last five years has been a strange period for the XFL site, and we've managed to endure still. I offer my thanks to a number of people, lest we forget:

Of course, and I am certain all fans feel this way, I must thank the architect Chris Carter and the studio executives at 21th  Century Fox television for bringing The X-Files back. I must thank Glen Morgan, James Wong, Darin Morgan, actors David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson, Mitch Pileggi, Annabeth Gish, William B. Davis, Bruce Harwood,  Tom Braidwood, Dean Haglund, Sheila Larken, Jeff Gulka, and such new talents as Joel McHale, Robbie Arnell, and Kumail Nanjiani. This doesn't even  include seeing such technical mainstays as Mark Snow, Joel Ransom, Rick Millikan, and Thierry J. Couturier.  As well as new Producers Garfield Whitman, and Grace Gilroy, The fans owe you a debt of gratitude.

A very special thank you must go out to Gabe Rotter for years of support, and boundless patience.

I must thank Vince Gilligan and Jenn Carroll for opening up some doors I didn't expect by his generous interview. Personally, I am looking forward to the new season of Better Call Saul.

A profound thank you must go towards Chris Longo and Mike Cecchini of Den of Geek, for the faith and the opportunities over the past year. It's not something I take for granted.

I must thank also thank a key new writer and figure to the XF Lexicon site. Chris Irish, whose enthusiastic reviews of The X-Files comic from IDW have been a pleasure to work with on the XFL Blog. Not only did Chris step up and was an enormous help, he also stepped up and started to help on the main site, and he has done so with a great attitude. Even in the midst of Chris and his wife facing some of the biggest challenges one could imagine, he has always maintained the greatest friendliness, it's not something I forget.

Two other key figures I must thank are John Kenneth Muir, and Sarah Stegall, both have remained an inspiration, and their willingness to help and their professionalism is something I don't take for granted. Their presence on The X-Files Lexicon site is a huge asset.

Next I must thank Thierry J. Couturier for his kindness and friendship, and tolerating a number of delays before our interview happened, and then to have to wait when the announcement of the new episodes happened, and the insanity that followed. He was gracious while there were delays in getting his interview ready.

I must offer my profound appreciation to the publicity people at FOX television, Kim Kurland, Erin, Moody, and Kylie Poluznik for the patience and effort in getting us taken care of.

I must also offer profound thanks to Robin Benty of FOX on-line for some much needed exposure, her friendliness and connection to Jana Fain, really made me feel welcomed.

The folks at IDW publishing have been very kind, and I must thank Joe Harris for his generous time, and for having some very kind things to say about the site. I must really thank Rosalind Morehead for all of her efforts to get us resources, and helping to get the Harris interview for Den of Geek to happen.

I must thank Jerry Hardin and his publicist Mitchell Stubbs for a very memorable and thrilling experience.

I must Bob Goodwin and Sheila Larken for their cooperation with the Den of Geek article, and for Bob's continued support and friendship, which is something I don't take lightly.

I must thank Mike Joffe and the rest of the team at La La Land Records, for his cooperation with The X-Files Lexicon, and Den of Geek. The efforts of this record label are always outstanding indeed.

I must thank a number of fan sites and their people for cooperating with Den of Geek. Thank you to Tiffany Devol and Avi Quijada from X-Files News. Kimon (Orodromeus) from Eat The Corn, Kimon has remained a great friend of the site for close to a decade. I must thank Maurisa Dillard Pruett from X-Files Universe for her cooperation and years of support. I must thank Mike Marek from The X-Files Timeline, whom I've known for a decade now, thank you. I must also thank Erica Fraga from the LAX-Files website and book, and Amy Donaldson from the We Want To Believe book and website. The folks at Idealist Haven, both the regular visitors and moderators were a huge help with the article, I owe them a debt.

I must thank Howard Gordon for being such a great help, in spite of his busy schedule, over the past year, for cooperating with the Den of Geek pieces, and being patient with my inquiries

William B. Davis continues to be very kind to us and I appreciate it.

I must thank Frank Spotnitz for his assistance, and Alison Groves and Katherine Pongrcz from Big Light Productions.

XScribe has moved on to other pastures, but as an editor, she was with the site for decade, and was the sites anchor for that long, she will be missed. But in spite of some incredible challenges she has faced, she continued to provide great support, her endurance was something to marvel at.

We have several new faces I must thank, my new editors A.M.D. and Liz Tray whom have already shown great patience. Brian A. Terrenova has already shown himself to be a great value as a writer. I must also thank Demijan Omeragic for his work. Lastly, I must thank Katie Moeller from the K-Files podcast for her positive energy and contributions.

I must thank Juliane Kempe for all of her great work publishing content on the main site. I know her patience might have been tried at times as we transition to the next level, but in a age where the trend is to post on blogs, I still feel fans value visiting an HTML site. She is the best!

I also must thank our new friend J.J. Lindl for his incredible work with The X-Files Poster Project, and future work with The X-Files Lexicon will be a great pleasure, his generous spirit and candor is appreciated.

I must thank the team at the Millennium site - This is Who We Are, as well as the folks at The X-Files Truth Podcast

One X-Files fan that has passed on that I must thank is Rebecca Carpenter, she supported the XFL site for years, and was gracious enough to help cooperate with Den of Geek, she will be missed, and we have done our best to honor her legacy.

I must thank David Raymond Davis for his continued support. as well as Kristin Fredrickson, and Flint Truman. There are others from the social circles of Secret Sun that have drifted into other areas, but Christopher Knowles remains a person who has impacted many. Thank you all.

Lastly, I must thank the fans who follow The X-Files Lexicon site, it's appreciated, and for the years that the fans have remained dedicated to this series, through thick and thin. It has been quite a ride over the past decade and much more is to come. Thank you to everyone who follows us at Facebook and Twitter

Let's hope 2016 is even better. I suspect we are in for a treat.

There has been a lot of activity for a spell. XFL several months ago ran a great article on the history of the "I Want To Believe" poster.

There has also been a round of new promo art, and a new 'First Look' trailer for Jan.




An XFL staffer attended a screening in late October of the first episode, right around the time this new poster circulated.

New interviews and articles...

| No Comments | No TrackBacks
We've been remiss again in posting all of the new developments with the main site, therefore here's a review. We've conducted three great interviews, starting with The X-Files sound supervisor Theirry J. Couturier, who also offered up a current photo of his son Nathan, made famous as the child voice of "I Made This!" on the Ten-Thirteen productions logo. We also conducted a brief interview with Mike Joffe, the reissues producer at La La Land Records for The X-Files, Millennium and Lone Gunmen / Harsh Realm releases. And are pleased to have just issued our exclusive interview with actor Jerry Hardin, who played Deep Throat, this interview has been a real honor and accomplishment considering his advancing age.

But we've been no less busy regarding our help with Den of Geek, where an interview with Howard Gordon was conducted, that got a fair amount of attention, and a mention with sites like X-Files News.

XFL has been bringing in new staff, and Brian A. Terrenova has written up a character profile for Deep Throat for the Dossier section.  We also ran two articles about the history of UFO evidence, and the Space Brother phenomenon. We have a slate of new material coming soon, and a lot of great revival material impending. New writers will be announced shortly.

The XFL blog is always active with reviews of The X-Files comics for IDW, and current opinion pieces.




A lot of ground needs to be covered regarding the revival, Aside from all of the new reports and an interview from X-Files News, and updates from Den of Geek. The staff at the Lexicon is proud to announce the first wave of articles for Den of Geek, that are written by a staffer from the Lexicon, an interview with Joe Harris. We will be posting our own summarization of what is known about the X-Files revival soon enough. We have our own exclusive interview that was conducted at the end of March, that should be posting soon enough.

Coming Clean...

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

The last few years have been a challenge for The X-Files Lexicon, I will freely admit to it, some of the it has been a drop off in interest with the collective fandom, and some have had to do with real life issues that have forced myself, as the webmaster, to only devote a certain amount of focus. Articles have been written in fairness on the main site, but a lot of time was focused on The X-Files Lexicon Blog, and while that had been a good period as far as satisfying certain intellectual needs, while we were trying to re-staff for the main site, I also knew that the promise wasn't really being fulfilled as far as providing an on-going stream of the best content we could muster.

But everything goes in cycles. The advent of IDW's The X-Files Season 10 comic by Joe Harris, had drawn old school fans back, as well as new fans. Prior to the big news of Fox in talks to do a X-Files revival in the future, there had been a Redditt fan interview with Frank Spotnitz, as well as Gillian Anderson's comments on Nerdist that lead to their X-Files2015 hashtag. The stars have felt like they are aligning, while the news about Chris Carter's The After not being continued by Amazon Studios, I have felt that the sheer fact that enough fans voted last year to green light the project, while it's heresay, might have sent a signal to certain powers that the public wanted more.

Which now brings us to this week - Our exclusive Interview with Vince Gilligan was something we were quite proud of, but since Den of Geek has picked up certain aspects of the interview, the firestorm of interest in various media outlets is something that leaves me humble, and something I don't take for granted. The commitment to get back to the work has never been greater.

Having said that I feel I must mention the first wave of great content. Our episode guide review of "The Host" is up, which features comments from highly respected media genre critic John Kenneth Muir. John has become a great friend to this website, and due to his stature, it is an honor to have him contributing here. But there's also Christopher Irish who has been writing for the Lexicon blog as of late, he was great help with the episode guide review.

Last year featured our great interview with the Architect himself Chris Carter, about The After.

In April we ran an in depth history of UFO sightings for the Paranormal Omnibus.

Recently we ran our review of the reissue by la La Land records of the Fight The Future soundtrack.

Last September was our review of the 2nd X-Files Mark Snow CD box set, which featured a brief interview with Mark Snow. We also had a trivia contest thanks to La La Land records where a Vol 2 CD was given away.

Thank you everyone for continuing to visit us.



A Year In Review...

| No Comments | No TrackBacks
Once again, we ended up being lax about this update page, but 2014 promises to be a more active year. There were a number articles posted and several significant developments in the news, especially regarding Chris Carter coming back to television in 2013.

Recently we held a trivia contest where the prize was a copy of Mark Snow's The X-Files: Volume 2 CD box set, graciously provided by Mike Joffe from the label, La La Land Records, It was a great contest, and I must thank everyone who submitted. Daniel Cuello was the winner. As a reminder Volume 2 still is available for sale.

Alexander Grodzinski wrote up a great review of the Volume 2 set, and he also conducted a brief interview with Mark Snow about the CD.

A new article for the Paranormal Omnibus, in the UFO section was published about the Brown Mountain Light phenomenon. And season two episode guide reviews were published for Sleepless, Ascension, reviewed by Frank Zero and David Morris, and fan art was added for End Game.

We started the year by the debut of our belated exclusive interview with uber fan Sarah Stegall.

More details came out of two programs that Chris Carter has in development. Most importantly is further developments about "The After", the pilot was filmed, it has completed post and should debut in February 2014 on Amazon Prime online, there's no further news if a full season will be order for this unique venture on-line. Mr. Carter also mentioned having a super-secret project for AMC in development.

In July 2013, at Comic Con in San Diego, a panel of talent from The X-Files made a special appearance, Chris Carter, David Amann, Vince Gilligan, Howard Gordon, John Shiban, Glen Morgan, Darin Morgan, and James Wong, and David Duchovny. The site Franklin Ave was one of the sources that managed to provide the most in depth coverage about the panel.

David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson made a special appearance at a Paley Center event in New York, In October. Several videos of the duo panel have circulated, here's one, use the following password to view: XF2013

This year a great deal of attention was given by fans to the new X-Files comic book series by IDW, helmed by Joe Harris and executive produced by Chris Carter. The site Eat The Corn has extensively covered each issue to date.

Joe Harris had also appeared at Comic Con in San Diego, but at a different venue from the X-Files panel. The next wave of comics looks to be promising.

As more developments come in with this busy year, we will report about them. Thank you for visiting the Lexicon.
