Monday Question Day- Hobbies?


Today is question day:

Do you have any other hobbies?

Besides drawing I enjoy playing video games. Now that I think about it, I am just 8-year old me but in an adult body. At the time, I liked drawing Star Wars characters, playing with my Atari 2600 and collecting baseball cards. The only thing that has changed is that my art skills are more developed, I play video games with much better graphics and the cards I collect don’t get thrown against walls or stuck in bike spokes.

  1. Recently... I've gotten into building Lego sets.

    1. My son has always been a Lego builder, we were fortunate when living in the Valley because there was a Lego store in our local mall. I have always enjoyed building sets with him but my favorites are the Star Wars sets. It is too bad that they cost so much more than basic sets.

    2. It's a slippery slope. Every now and then I go on a shopping spree and pick up some sets. I'm chilling right now. As soon as they release the next wave... I'll go through them and decide on which ones I'll target.

  2. I went through a period where I played a lot of video games. My wife and I played World of Warcraft pretty heavily, but when our first kid was born she stopped playing and I quit about six months later.

    I collect comic books. I (used to) paint miniature figurines for wargames, which I would like to get back into soon. I like riding motorcycles, although I haven't ridden mine in a while. I love collecting and building LEGO sets.

    1. I played WoW from time to time but I never signed up, I have a problem with purchasing a game and then having to pay to play. I love a good RPG or FPS game, I am playing through the Batman Arkham series now.

  3. Fantasy baseball... I don't play in money leagues, but the amount of time I put into it would probably say otherwise.

    1. I recently joined a fantasy baseball league, purely out of chance. Someone had posted a thread on a forum about a new league so I signed up and it is a bit different than a typical league but enjoyable.

  4. No other real hobbies. Some day I'd like to collect old signs but right now I feel priced out from doing so. I'm a huge Star Wars fan but don't really collect it. I did complete the full original Marvel run of 107 comics many years ago - my personal favorite SW expanded universe.

    1. The problem with collecting Star Wars is that there are so many options and if you aren't careful you end up getting pulled in to a variety of collecting. I think Disney uses this to their advantage when they release so many action figure lines, books, comic books, television shows and so on. They expect you to like a movie or show and then you chase the cards, the figures and the books.

  5. Playing guitar would be my other hobby, I guess you could call it that. I've often thought about taking up collecting concert posters of the Black Crowes and Gov't Mule. Only so much money, though- and I'd rather buy baseball cards right now.
