Your favorite hobby?

Recommended Posts

I have a list, it is in no order of preference because that changes depending on time, motivation, -phase of the moon etc.

 

 

-sound engineering (live and studio)

-production (stage)

-4x4 and camping

-anything with wheels

-motors and tools

-welding and trailer building

-photography

-electronics

-woodworking and construction

-social sciences (what causes cultural issues, scientific reasoning, religion)

-mental health and early childhood development (worked as an integration aide for quite a while).

 

 


QuicK and DirtY. Read the CoC it's like a guide on how not to be moron.  Also I don't have an issue with the VS series.

Sometimes I miss contractions like n't on the end of words like wouldn't, couldn't and shouldn't.    Please don't be a dick,  make allowances when reading my posts.

What do you do in your free time besides computers and games? I love to play guitar, sometimes go out at night with a guitar and look at the sky with a telescope. It's breathtaking!

I play paintball

Surveying at the moment (my hobbies tend to change over time). Even though it shows up in my professional life, I'm not technically paid to do any surveying and I do it for fun in my private life as well, so I count it as a hobby.


I will never succumb to the New Cult and I reject the leadership of @Aelar_Nailo and his wicked parrot armies led by @FakeCIA and @DildorTheDecent. I will keep my eyes pure and remain dedicated to the path of the One True; IlLinusNati

I do a lot of DIY and enjoy playing board games with my wife and friends. Sometimes the two overlap - I made a big box for our Eldritch Horror collection and a small dice tower shaped like a haunted house.

Besides the stuff I do on my PC (programming, digital drawing, video editing occasionally and some gaming) I also enjoy doing some drawing on paper.. as well as general designing.

With designing I mean just personal logo stuff, but nowadays also electrical designs (think PCB's and such).

 

One of my main hobbies now evolved from another hobby of mine (collecting games, consoles and handhelds) and is basically cleaning up and sometimes modding consoles (mainly handhelds and controllers).

 

When I buy something second hand it is often very much used, so I like to clean up that stuff, which often results in me opening up said device to properly clean it.

This results in my interest in possibly modding these consoles, like I for example modded a somewhat broken DS into only the bottom screen of the DS... But have not done much more modding otherwise.

 

I do like cycling too, but can't count that as a hobby, since I really only do it as a means of transportation.


I apologize for the way I am. If my post seemed rude, that was not my intention. Just my ineptness in forming a nice coherent message.

Mountain biking (Ordered a new Calibre bossnut evo because i got hit by a car on my calibre line 10 and its screwed, so while im waiting for the police to sort it out, ive got something to ride)

Sailing (my friend's yacht, lazers, RS feva's etc.)

Listening to music (just spent near enough 40k on a setup :D)

Climbing (lead, bouldering, high alpine, free-climbing)

Mixing and mastering music (it is my job.. so.. ree.)

Hell yeah a fellow audio engineer.


If you have any questions about ultra high end audio (Or any speakers or speaker gear!), don't be afraid to shoot me a message, or mention me.

 

Yes my audio stuff is 800,000 USD, I'm a dedicated audiophile/mastering engineer

 

(If you want to see my audio stuff, check my profile, it's too much to list here.)

Reading... Lots of different things.

Trekking but had to stop because of some back problems. It drives me nuts to not be able to trek.

Movies, in cinema. Used to go several times per week, But that's long gone since my kid shares my life.

Aikido... That also is over for now (back, etc.).

 

A couple over things, but won't talk about it. ^o^

Come Bloody Angel

Break off your chains

And look what I've found in the dirt.

 

Pale battered body

Seems she was struggling

Something is wrong with this world.

 

Fierce Bloody Angel

The blood is on your hands

Why did you come to this world?

 

Everybody turns to dust.

 

Everybody turns to dust.

 

The blood is on your hands.

 

The blood is on your hands!

 

Pyo.

Most of my spare time I spend playing piano, building/upgrading PC's, building RC cars, bicycling, motorcycling.

Gold prospecting, you can spend $8000 on a top end detector or you can use a $5 gold pan and sit at a creek, it's all fun and it's one of the very few hobbies that can give a good return if you get lucky.  If you put in the time you'll usually cover your petrol costs at least ?

 

Gold isn't found everywhere of course but luckily i live close to the golden triangle in Victoria, Australia.

Traveling. It aids in curving you into a better human. You learn how to interact with different people and know their stories and this impacts you on a greater level.  I`m planning my trip to Greece in June of 2020. We are trying to decide would we go from Athens out to islands sample Mykonos-Santorini, then Crete i.e. Start close to Athens and end in Crete and then come home. Or go from Athens to Crete and then head backwards. Does that make sense what I`m trying to figure out. Do we need to worry about the small flights from any of the islands getting canceled where we need extra time or even a night wherever we are flying too. Should I get a car from Car rental in Greece service?
