Nicole Christian

What will you spend your $25 on? A lomo supersampler. I’ve had my eye on one for a while. But knowing me, I’ll change my mind. Too much good stuff at Tate’s.

How long have you been visiting TATE’S? Whew, a long time! I’d wager… 12 or so years? I remember when you guys were located in that plaza on the corner of University and Commercial. My dad used to go to a record shop nearby (Sir Arthur’s oldies) and I’d just go there. Comics were way more interesting than old soul records.

How old are you? 26

How do you make a living? I’m a art director/graphic designer for a gourmet ice cream company.

If you could do ANYTHING, how would you make a living?Professional photographer or Pokemon Ranger (joooke)!

Do you have any pets? A fuzzball cat named Kira.

Do you have any tattoos? No tattoos yet. But hey, 2007 isn’t over and I have some expendable income.

What was you favorite toy as a child? — Now? Like most girls, I was programmed to like the color pink, Barbie, and My Little Pony. Now, I’ve moved on to my Nintendo DS (not pink).

What is your most bizarre childhood memory?
Moving to Florida and being amazed that people had swimming pools in their backyard. I lived in Canada and this concept in 1988 was foreign to me. Everyone was a millionare to me if they had a pool.

What is the one thing that irritates you the most? People who respond to “Thank Yous” with “yeahs” instead of “your welcome” or “no problem”.

What is your favorite smell? Baking Cookies. I wish there was a perfume like this.

What do you collect? Old cameras and shoes (I’m a girl..we have a thing with shoes).

What are some of your hobbies? Photography, playing video games, watching old rare movies. I’m pretty boring, actually.

What is your Favorite Comic/Manga? Right now, Deathnote is ruling me. Bleach is up there too.

What is your Favorite Anime/Cartoon? Tough question. It’d have to be Sailor Moon (laugh all you want) because that series was the one that converted me from Marvel to Manga. Haven’t looked back since.

What is your Most Favorite Movie? Jules and Jim (directed by Francois Truffaut). I love complicated French love triangles!

What is your Most Favorite Bumper Sticker?
The Star Trek ones get me.

What is Your Favorite T-Shirt? My vintage Phillies T shirt.

What is your dream car? I would like a MINI Cooper. Cute and Fast.

What superpowers do you wish you possessed? Invisibility. Creepy power but unlimited possibilities.

If you could banish anyone into the sun, who would it be?Nickleback. Yeah, definately them.

Which character on The Simpsons do you identify most with?Definately Milhouse.

Most treasured possession? My Yashica T4. I take it wherever I go.

Do you have a homepage?
http://www.tigerfist.org It’s basically a dump for whatever project I’m working on. I’m not big on ‘portfolio’ sites.

List your favorite websites:
http://www.otakubooty.com - It’s a community (“dating”) site for anime nerds. Although, no one I know on there has actually gotten a date through that site. Lots of good people there and the forums are hilarious!

http://www.tinyvices.com - Amazing photography site. You can easily spend hours here.

http://www.lomo.us - I’ve learned more here than any other lomo site ever! Great community of people.
