About Me


Hi! We are Elyse and Kate. At the moment we are both struggling through degrees in Philosophy and Classics (Kate) and Psychology and Criminology (Elyse).
We are currently looking forward to our two month trip to America at the end of the year.


Dedicating self to David Mitchell fanclub, getting embarrasingly addicted to Korean melodramas, travelling up and down the North Island of New Zealand for tasty muffins, crazy seated dancing to David Bowie while stuck in rush hour traffic and lively debates over anything and everything.

Music, Movies, and Books

Love all three and between the two of us have a very wide range:

- The Sound of Music, A Streetcar Named Desire, Rosemary's Baby, Trainspotting, Fly Away Home, Return to Oz, Grease, Garden State, Labyrinth
- Pixies, Cat Power, The Arcade Fire, Air, Bowie, The Cure, The Veils, Nouvelle Vague, NIN, BT, The Sounds, Samuel F. Scott and the B.O.P.
- Cell 2455 Death Row, Slaughterhouse-Five, The Valley of the Dolls, Looking For Alaska, Paper Towns, Tully, Happy Like Murderers, The Case of Mary Bell

I like a pretty wide variety of things so hard to narrow it down. In terms of movies I'll watch almost anything from La Cité des Enfants Perdus (which I love) to The Fast and the Furious (which I don't love so much yet for some reason seem to own on DVD... not too sure how). My favourite movie is Dancer in the Dark.
My favourite books are Brave New World, Nineteen Eighty Four, Farenheit 451, A Brief History of Time and others.
My music tastes are also fairly diverse. Bands I like include The Cribs, Nine Inch Nails, The Decemberists, The Libertines amongst others and yet I will always have time for a bit of Backstreet Boys.
