    I'm a medieval re-enactor, it's alot of fun i get to run around with steel weapons in armour and smack my mates around for a laugh



    that's me with the axe.



    SO what do other people do for fun which may be considered unusual? I love being out of the ordinary lol.

    I was getting medieval broadsword lessons, but they've fallen by the wayside since I started travelling again for work (last 3 months). Plan on taking it back up again soon though

    I host a metal radio show and have done for about 12 years now. Also try to assist bands where possible - time permitting. I used to do a lot more of that but time is fairly precious of late.

    Nice work, Zahrim. A guy at my work does that sort of stuff as well. I've got lots of interests, but my main hobby as such is geocaching.

    That's awesome, Zahrim!

    My hobby is playing some troll metal with my troll metal band, Troldhaugen.

    Nice Axe I wouldn't mind giving that a go, ive been to the Lithgow ironfest a couple of times it's pretty awesome. Do you know if there is any club/groups doing that sort of thing around the blue mountains area?

    LT: your hobby is clearly staying awake for ridiculous numbers of hours.

    Mine include: Guitar, Singing, Astronomy, Metal detecting, reading, and staying in the office for crazy numbers of hours to squeeze the last bytes of performance out of cranky hardware and software. Oh, and annoying the shit out of people on this forum. I've also been shooting a lot of people in the head lately in Battlefield Bad Company 2... but that's just to let off steam and not a REAL hobby.

    Snowboarding and skating take up the majority of my time lately. Starting surfing not long ago, I'm rubbish.

    I fish a lot too, I've been doing odd bream tournament.

    I do a lot of gardening too, getting heaps into permaculture.

    Clearly watching TV isn't a hobby of yours.

    Actually thinking about it, photography is a bit of a hobby. I don't get to do it nearly as much as I would like but it's great to head out somewhere with a good friend and/or model and just get some shots either of said model or the landscape or whatever.

    I kind of don't class it much as a hobby due to the cross over with my video production stuff since it uses all of the same gear, but I guess it is its own thing. I should get some pics together sometime and post them up!

    Tim, I don't think hiding in the bushes outside people's houses with a camera counts as a hobby! :p

    There's this woman that likes to get naked in front of a window and she has the hide to call me a pervert for masturbating in the bushes.

    Pfft, you sound just like that annoying judge who keeps giving me his little "convictions" and "restraining orders". What does he know anyway? :rolleyes:
