Jelssivision Episode 1.


 Is it worth the internet download? A quick summary of 10 minutes of jelssievision:
  • Both our voices.
  • Jess's condescending face.
  • Elsie's dentist-numb face.
  • Both of us dressed in blue, without planning it.
  • Mulled wine is the chai of wine.
  • Are figs more like watermelon or passionfruit?
  • What is the best era for music?
  • Elsie eating out of the teapot.
  • What makes a nice chai?
  • Did Elsie get a phone call from Jeff Buckley? 
  • We should talk about internet dating.
  • A deconstructed plateful and a well-constructed forkful.
  • Bobby pin demonstration.
  • Elsie here: my favourite part is at 4:44, where Jess makes a face after I say oyster. 
Here it is:

We think it's funny, but that might be "look we're on vimeo!! hahahahaha!!!! My voice sounds so nasal. I don't remember saying that???", so maybe it isn't funny it's just weird, but we hope you enjoy it. If there is a rapturous response we will have brunch again. Well, actually, we like having brunch anyway.


Kind thanks to the cafe location Something For Jess in Chippendale. Their chai made on frothed milk was excellent and their menu was fresh and healthy and the service was delightful.

  1. The sieve-ing/prospecting motion must be one of Elsie's faves...just realised how many times she does it :)

  2. It *is* quite a long video...I like to think it's something you can watch while eating breakfast in solidarity, or having a cup of tea. Maybe next time I should do a bunch of short ones rather than one long one. Hmoooo.

  3. The sieve-ing quinoa part is my favourite. Maybe that prospecting in the air thing could catch on as a euphemism.

    See what works! I like the long one because of the titles. And it was all one brunch. And it takes a while to get used to the flow. But at first I was like, man my voice is so annoying.

  5. It works. I've been to that cafe many times, and I've never thought of it as a space for recording jelssievision. I can't say I'm a big fan of quinoa, but if you're going to eat quinoa, you need to be comfortable with washing a sieve.

  6. I kept wanting to join in the conversation! I think that is a very good sign. :)

  7. Dave if you see a cafe and you DO think 'hey, this place needs a recording of jelssievision' let us know. Also, I'm trying to perfect a submersion method of rinsing quinoa without a sieve.

    Little, I wish you could be a special guest! You would make excellent contributions.
