Unusual Hobbies

Post by seabass » Thu Oct 11, 2007 8:09 am

One of my units for my journalism course requires me to write two 1000 word feature on whatever. One of the features I have decided to do is on "unusual hobbies".

What i would like to know (if you consider to have a unusual hobby) is to tell me what it is, why you started, what keeps you going and what others think of it and any other info you feel is worthy of telling me (thats me covering all my bases )

Dosne't matter if you think one of your hobbies isn't that unusual, after all you maybe able to think about something thats's quirky about it.
I got love for you if were born in the 80's...yeah!

I like to buy used underwear from woman, cannot stick the sites where they don't show their faces though, mind you, closest thing I'll get to a blind date.

I write poetry. Not so unusual, except the time I wrote a 120 liner about having writers' block!
Fight the good fight of faith,
Lay hold on Eternal life.

Playing retro games and using retro computers.
Another hobby of mine is shooting - I have a nice selection of pellet guns and I like to do a bit of target practice on a regular basis!

Now being serious, I like to collect retro games, also quite into VHS box art, sounds weird I know, but you cannot be the old stuff (especially the betamax),

Yeah VHS box art can be pretty cool and unusual, the boxs being bigger than the DVD's giving them more of a 'Canvas' to work with.

Nothing out of the ordinary for me really - playing guitar, competitive online gaming in clans and I rollerblade a bit too. I guess the only quirky thing concerns my guitar playing, in that I play a variety of game tunes inbetween doing musical injustice to various metal songs.

I believe you. I've just watched the first episode of Reaper and I'm not sure that's a coincidence.

Astronomy (sadly, mainly from the armchair for the time being), learning Japanese (though, as I am now at evening class to learn it isn't exactly a hobby) and Warhammer (I take charge of a Chaos Warrior horde and am building a Blood Dragon Vampire Count legion when I get the opportunity).
