"1984 - 2008. Gone But Not Forgotten."

Hi guys,

It’s Charlie here. I wanted to keep Kate’s Bebo page alive. I thought I would explain what happened to my dear Kate who I miss so much already.

Genevieve Strathcorran, or as you and I knew her, Kate, died on Sunday the 13th of January 2008, taken from her friends and family after living a really turbulent life, especially the past 6 months.

She was taken from us prematurely. She shouldn’t have been taken, it’s not fair on us and it’s not fair on her.

Kate can sleep now but I can’t, I need answers and I need your help finding them. Please leave your messages for Kate here, I know you all loved her as much as me and if she is logging onto her Bebo from heaven I know she’ll be watching.

Lots of Love

Kate Says

Flying Ants Day
When I was a kid we had a white house and one day every July it would be covered with clouds of flying ants. On my way to the Post Office this morning I noticed they are everywhere - in the air, on the ground, people batting them away and pulling them out of their hair. It seems that today must be flying ants day. I wonder if they emerge, mate and die all in one day. Does any one know?

Thanks for all your comments again today. I slept badly again last night, keep having weird dreams.

KateModern Productions Q&A

After much stalking I managed to get KateModern Productions to answer some questions... *"Restraining order? Whats that?"*

GF: How did you go about selecting the actors for KM? Was it an open or closed audition?
KM: It was a closed audition

GF: Have you started filming yet?
KM: Yes, we started last Monday 9th July and it's going really well

GF: Had any of the actors heard of Lonelygirl15 before?
KM: All were familiar, but some more than others

GF: Tell us a bit about the characters
KM: You will learn all about them in the weeks to follow!!!
*Damn creators - secretive as always*

GF: We understand that KM will be posted first on Bebo and then on LG15.com. Does this mean that there will be a Revver account? Also will there be a youtube account?
KM: We are still working on the details for this
*Well hurry up! Is starts in 5 days!!!*

GF: On Lonelygirl15.com videos tend to be posted during "waking hours" in the States.Since the series take place in London will it take place in "UK time". (Meaning, can we expect to see video posts and character posts at times that would be expected for characters who live in the UK?)
KM: The series will run in UK time yes

GF: Will any action take place near the Tate Modern gallery
KM: Maybe :)
*That means yes*

GF: We heard that KM will involve ARG for fans. Will there be puzzles to crack? Will there be any drops?
KM: Yes, KateModern will involve ARG and there might be some drops

GF: Will there be any log available of the character interaction posts? (If these posts will in fact be used for plot development they will be important to the blog and LGpedia but as currently set up they might be hard to track.) Will an offical log be available and if so where?
KM: Isn’t that what you guys do?!?!
*oh dear... I see sleepless nights for GF ahead..*

GF: Has KM Productions heard of the dangers of orange slurpees and the number 436?
KM: Yes and yes and we take it very seriously

GF: Is this fanfic or part of the cast?(Gemma)
KM: Fanfic

GF: Is there going to be a link to Kate and Bree?
KM: If I told you that it would ruin all the fun....
*I also think this means yes..*

Stay tuned....

KateModern: Who is Charlie?

I grew up in the Melbourne ‘burbs where I dated a few booooring guys who were such mincers. Since I’ve moved over seas to London I’ve let my hair down sooo much – probably a bit too much. Every Sunday I think I’m so over going out and then I do it all over again! What the hell you only live once, right? Here’s what I also think:

Girls can do everything boys can, but backwards with heels on...

(Oh, and NOOOOO the pics stuck up on the profile aren't me and Kate, I just thought they were wicked :)



Man I love music and dancing – I’m a dancin’ fool! Not everything I like is what is generally thought of as ‘cool’ but I reckon if it gets you’re heart thumpin’ THAT’s what’s cool! So I’m into Ozzie bands big and small as well as all sorts of stuff. Anyway here’s a random list: I’m in LOVE with the song 'Acceptable in the 80's' by Calvin Harris (Kate now hates it cos I’d played it to DEATH in the flat when I moved in – sorry Kate!), INXS, Radiohead, Daft Punk, The Claxons, The Killers, Razorlight, White Stripes, The Kooks, Jeff Buckley, Eskimo Joe, Powder Finger, Sneaky Sound System (hey they’re big in Sydney and have a cool animated video! If you’ve not heard of some of these guys – check ‘me out!

Sooo many! Here’s just a few – City of God, all weird docos like the one about the taxidermy competition in the US, stuff directed by Darren Aronofsky - Requiem For A Dream, Pi and The Fountain (stars Hugh Jackman who is a total spunk!) The Mothman Prophecy, IT, Candy Man and Donny Darko... also Candy (Australian film), The Little Mermaid and Fight Club (you can’t beat Brad Pitt ha ha). I love to scream really loudly so…Japanese stuff like Tetsuo, The Ring, Dark Water. Animation! Anime – Akira etc and especially anything by the Japanese director Hayao Miyazaki like Spirited Away.

Netball ha ha!

Sangas - My Favourite Sandwiches
I love food but cooking is so last year so the answer is sangas: Sausage, Vegemite and banana. The same on toast. Cheese on toast with LOADS of tomato sauce and pepper. Tomato sauce on everything - can't understand why people in London call it ketchup? Its tomatoes in a sauce form... DER!!!!)


From LGpedia
'KateModern will be set in London, and much like Bree, Kate will be doing battle against dark forces, while trying to have a semblance of a normal life."

Kate (AbstractHeart)

I signed up for this so I could showcase my art. Stil working on getting that up...

I like making videos and messing around with multi-media stuff.

I study art and I share a flat in East London with my friend Charlie. She's a bit mad but she introduced me to vegemite so she can stay.

What else should I say here..? 681 characters left...

I like air, food, Final Cut Pro and people who try to make a difference.

And - Fun fact... I once went to a pencil museum in Cumberland.



Prince, The Kooks, Ella Fitzgerald, Kate Nash, Gnarls Barkley, Daft Punk, My Chemical Romance, Maroon5, Joss Stone, Gwen Stefani, Alicia Keyz, Amy Winehouse, Norah Jones, Boy Better Know, Blink 182, Scissor Sisters, The Klaxons, Elvis, Take That, Sublime, Missy Elliot, Peter Gabriel, Massive Attack, Red Hot Chilli Peppers, Elvis Costello, Pharell Williams, Justin Timberlake, Portishead, Faithless, Joy Division, Goldfrapp, The Beatles, Stereophonics, Nizlopi, Kaizer Chiefs, The Killers... is that enough?

Wings of Desire, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Meet the Parents, Toy Story 1 and 2, Rita Sue and Bob Too, Life of Brian, The Incredibles, City of God, Kind Hearts and Coronets.

Jeff Koons, Dali, Diane Arbus, Tacita Dean, Banksy, Sam Taylor- Wood, me (shameless plug), Spike Jonze and Michel Gondry.

Scared Of
Werewolves & Doctors.

Happiest When
I'm in the flow...
