About Me

I live in a little city called Gisborne in Aotearoa/New Zealand. It is the first city in the world to see the sunrise each day - I like to sleep in so I don't get to see it but I bet it's great.

Some of my favourite things start with C - (watching) cricket, (eating) cupcakes, (wearing) cardigans, (fleetwood mac's) The Chain, crochet (blankets) and (hanging out with) Christopher John.

Nikki, I'm very late with posting your mix, sorry. The mix is ready for burning, will try to get it posted this week, Martin


Not a problem. :) I'm excited to hear it!


Glad you liked the mix! Sorry it was so late!


Hello Nikki! Your "as seen in christchurch" mix came to me safe and sound! I have really enjoyed not only the songs on the mix but the meaning behind you putting it together the way you did! Thank you so much :) I hope all is well with you, and I just noticed on your profile you have a fleetwood mac song (the chain) listed as a favorite. Fleetwood Mac is totally my jam! Jenna


So... your April mix is going out in today's mail. Who knows how long it will take to get from the east coast of the US to your place. Anyway, thought I'd let you know. Enjoy (belatedly)!


Hi Nikki! I just now noticed your March comment on my page - clearly I have been slacking on the IMP front. But to answer your question, I have noooo idea if your June mix ever made it to me. I have a curious habit of separating the CDs from the cases from the track lists, and scattering all between the car, the computer, the coffee table and who knows where else. Basically, I'm a disorganized mess. So! It's probably around here somewheres, and if I find it, I will listen to it and most likely find it awesome. Perhaps I already have! :)


Nikki -- I've spent the past several days really enjoying the songs for waiting cats. They're so good that I find myself looking for things I can wait for. And eating lots of small fishes. Thank you!


Hello Nikki. First, wanted to say that was able to visit New Zealand a few years back and really loved it. Hit both North and South islands and met some of the nicest people I've met in my travels. (Hope you don't find that offensive.) Second, been listening to you October mix all this week. Wanted to tell you that it has really nice flow. Good transitions from song to song, style to style... I really love the Darcy Clay ("Jesus I Was Evil"), and Naked & Famous ("Young Blood") tunes especially. i also dig The Electric Confectionaires, the Mockers, and can never go wrong with Chris Knox (He's one of your country's best exports. Right up there with Emersons beer, Flight of the Conchords, and Lucy Lawless).


Thanks for letting me know it arrived! Glad you dig it!


Hey, thanks for the mix! I was in NZ last January, where I walked into a CD store and asked, "Give me five CDs that Americans wouldn't know, with bands unique to New Zealand." They had a tough time with it, and noted that you're known for dub. In any case... nice mix, thanks.


I listened to your mix a few times. The biggest revelation was UNKLE ft. the Black Angels! Of course I dug the Mint Chicks. All in all, I enjoyed the mix. Thank you for including so many NZ bands.


Nikki, I received your mix today. I saw the Mint Chicks a year ago here in Oregon. Very cool of you to include Kiwi bands. Do you like the Clean? I'm going to give the mix a listen at work soon enough. Thanks again, Cheers. S


Oops...wrong profile. There are apparently two Nikkis on here from NZ.


So, I'm a dork. I did receive your mix this month but didn't realize it was my IMP (had other mix CDs coming in). So I really liked listening to all the New Zealand bands. Great mix!


Hey! Yes I got the cd a little bit ago. It was great to get something different. All new stuff to me. Thanks!
