The Hobby Thread  Reply with quote  

Hobbies/interests; everyone has to have some sort to keep them sane. I know we have rappers, producers, artists, gamers, etc. I'm curious what other hobbies people on the forum have. (i don't mean to sound like i'm trying to cheapen careers using the term "hobby"; using the term loosely)

Even if not "a hobby" per se, what do you enjoy doing in your free time? What are you proud of? Show off your shit in here.

I'll start off....
Other than coming on here and being a nay-saying smart-ass, in my free time I have a Honda Shadow 750 I enjoy riding around and working on, because I'm too cheap to take to mechanics. It's my main mode of transportation and money pit. Not looking forward to winterizing it and using my car again. Any riders in here?



2006 Honda Shadow Aero VT750C

i collect old movie posters from 1910 onwards. originals, reprints, poster books, whatever. i dont spend a great deal of money on the hobby, but probably a bit more than i should. but i do spend quite a bit of time going through them, looking up info on the web about the films themselves, frequenting markets looking for additional posters etc.



very small part (tiny actually) of my collection. these are all uniform reprints collected mainly from pubs.

Very cool; what's your prized one? Do you have to keep them in acid-free bags and whatnot? I used to work at a custom frame shop back in college and we would cut frames and mats for stuff like that. Really wish I would've kept a camera at the shop, because after 9 years of working there, some really cool stuff came through those doors.

nothing fancy with the ones above as they're fairly recent reprints that arent valuable. some of the larger, older posters i keep in tubes lined with acid free tissue paper. i can roll 3 or 4 posters in one tube, each protected with the tissue paper. but i also keep quite a few flat, lined, and stacked. i no doubt make many mistakes in the way i store them.

I've been playing a lot of chess. I'm pretty terrible at it. I think I need a book or a lesson or something.

I'm planning on trying to do a vegetable garden in the spring. Gardening seems relaxing.

I'd also like to learn about cheese making.

Been training Jiu Jitsu for 10 months now. It's kind of taking over my life. I only train a few times a week but even when I'm doing something else, I'm thinking about doing jiu jitsu. My brother started a year before me so it only makes the obsession that much worse. We're always talking techniques and stuff. It's the most fun I've had in years. I hope to compete in March. So far, it's been both empowering and humiliating.

Rotty, home made jerky sounds awesome. I'm off to see how that works.

Running, baking, beadwork.

My degree is in anthropology so I have turned into a real journal nerd and I am slowly building up a harddrive full of them so I can keep up with the discussions when I leave uni. Research interests are in arctic communities especially when linked to enviromental and substinence issues, NRTs and conceptions of kinship, death and identity.

Please tell me in how you make your own jerky, this sounds amazing and tasty.

It is! You need to get yourself a dehydrator. You can get them under a $100. Then get yourself some steak or beef joint, slice thin, marinade in whatever takes your fancy. My favourates at the moment are jerk jerky, thai pepper jerky and Dr Pepper jerky.

rough recipe

1 cup Dr. Pepper Soda (not diet)
1/4 cup dark soy sauce
1/4 cup lime juice
1-1/2 cup vegetable oil
tsp hot sauce


Trick is not to over do it with the Dr Pepper as it starts to break down the meat. I dont use the lime juice either. play about with the recipe until the marinade tastes good to you.

Where are you from, if you don't mind me asking? I'd be interested in hearing your take on the Attawapiskat crisis going on in Canada right now. Pretty hot topic nationally, and right up your ally by the sounds of it.
