Whats your other hobby?

Postby MenaceRX » Tue Jul 23, 2013 9:54 pm

I didnt really get back into collecting Transformers until the Bayformers came around. I spent 4 years in Japan and really kick my self for not taking advantage of the close proximity to pick up the Takara works during that time frame. Any way when I am not collecting and fiddling with my Transformers or other toy collectibles (Thundercats, Power Rangers, and He-Man) I create designs and recreations for NASCAR Racing 2003 with modifications for various models and series up to the current year.

All my skills in digital design is self taught. Was just something I got into 4 years ago. Been hooked ever since.

Some of my work... what other hobbys do you have or things do you like to collect?

Approving and disapproving posts, dealing with reports, issuing warnings ...

When not dealing with this place I play Trumpet. Image

I like to sing. I don't do performances or take the stage anymore but I still like to sing along with whatever's on the radio or my mp3 player.

I can play the trumpet too much like my Southern Counterpart. However I've moved to the Euphonium just because it seems there more room for them in music groups.

I like to write, but I never finish. I get distracted and leave half-done works all over the place.

Comics, mostly, and TF happens to fall under that category.

But I help out at UK festivals and conventions too, making contacts to help me in my PhD work and just for the sake of them.

I write poetry every once in a while, some short prose and my other job (when I'm not a PhD student) is freelance translation. So I mess around with translations, too, mostly from Italian into English, and vice versa, but also French and a little Dutch.

Motto: "The only good is knowledge, and the only evil is ignorance."
Sadly, I have no real hobbies to spend my time with... :sad: There are a lot of things I'd like to do, but my attention span, focus and especially motivation is kind of weak. Put short, I jump from project to project without finishing them, which is kind of sad. My current ones?

YouTube
No no, not toy reviews (though I am entertaining the idea), but obscure video game showcases and challenges. Right now, I've recorded footage for so-called Mega Man Perfect Runs, starting with Mega Man: Dr. Wily's Revenge for the Game Boy, but Quick Man is proving to be a big obstacle. :BANG_HEAD: Plus, I have no more mike...

Video Game Making
Yeah, I want to make my own game one of these days. I've already written extensive notes and basic outlines, particularly for one based on Sonic CD. I just love the idea of Time Travel :lol:

Out of the house I just bicycle, sometimes 20 miles at a time, so I'm getting some exercise.
Top 5 Priorities:

1) BW Neo X-7 Elphaorpha
2) BW II VS-18 Powerhug vs. Autocrusher
3) Universe 2003 Night Slash Cheetor
4) Arms Micron Terrorcon Bumblebee
5) BW Convobat (red) & Megalligator (purple)

Preparing to move to the US!

Motto: "SHEEAGH!"
I'm a media whore; so watching animation and movies, reading comics/manga (same damn thing), and an absolute metric f@&#ton of video games. I write quite a bit - the weekly RPG Deals and monthly Shop Watch columns at RPG Land, along with the occasional review. I also write reviews for Playstation Lifestyle. Finally, in addition to working on a novel, I have a short children's story called To Understand available on Amazon's Kindle. The goal of the story is to teach older children (8-12) death does not mean your thoughts and feelings for your loved ones disappear with them.

Lately I've been working with RPG Maker to get my feet wet with coding and make a game.

In short, I pollute other people's minds. It's glorious.

Same here, extra addition.

It's more of a temporary/seasonal job, but it's so fun and I enjoy it so much that it feels wrong to call it a job!

I'm a scare-actor for Halloween at a local theme park, here in Norfolk.

Art and comics. When I'm not teaching, I moonlight as a professional comic book artist. I launched the Punisher MAX for Marvel years ago and currently work for Valiant.

I also love hard rock and metal guitar. Noodling, writing riffs and tunes, jamming with buddies, fiddling with my rig, I love it.
