Non-musical passions?

So obviously we all have a passion for heavy metal music, and there's a thread about non-metal music that people enjoy.
But what about non-music related passions?

For me, film (especially horror, mainly 80s) and wine. Also reading is a passion I've recently re-discovered!

Horror films, novels, and comics. Warhammer 40k ( plague marines), most importantly I love being a father I'm pretty active in my son's life. I play hockey on weekends i also hunt.

Currently a graduate student so not much time for hobbies but I draw, sketch, make masks. Lots of reading when I can and I collect bones

Kvlt_ured_Gentleman's picture

I play 40k and DIY lots of things which you could argue has to do with music since it's almost all band merch. I'm about to go to college though so that will likely absorb all of my efforts for several years.

Influx's picture

I gotta ask, what do play as in 40k?

Croby's picture

I am interested as well :) Imperial Guard here :D

Influx's picture

Dark Eldar for 40k, Lizardmen (Seraphon) regular

Kvlt_ured_Gentleman's picture

I'm kind of late in seeing this but the Dark Angels though I occasionally run them as other kinds of space marines when I play more informal games.

Reading, Poetry, Movies (Old school horror) anime, Magic The Gathering, Retro gaming.

DarkValkyrieofDeath's picture

i love magic the gathering, id play it with u if we lived in the same country ;)

Nater90's picture

Oh nice, Yeah that would be cool haha :D

What sort of deck you run?

DarkValkyrieofDeath's picture

i have a green/black deck and a red/white deck but they both need work, ive won a few rounds with them tho, my friends are are pros and its tough to play against them sometimes. Another game that is fun to look into is the Resident Evil deck building game, i have the first box set of it and its been a hit at my parties, it captures the key elements of the video game too which is surprising for a card game haha

Nater90's picture

Nice nice, I've got a green/red and green/black, Still working on some strategies on one though, I've also got one of each border Black Lotus. Not heard of the Resident Evil decks, Would be epic!! Seen a Final Fantasy one few weeks ago.

DarkValkyrieofDeath's picture

my friend and i used to raid the dollar store every once and a while for their 1 dollar magic boosters looking for black lotus because they had old cards, no luck but got a bunch of other epic cards so it was worth it, yes I do recommend resident evil its amazing cant wait to get my hands on the expansion boxes... i used to be mad into yugioh too but my friends dont play that much at all so i have noone to play with usually, that kinda sucks haha but dollar store has boosters of those too :P

Nater90's picture

Haha, Would be near impossible to acquire one that way.

I've got probably 30-40 Yugioh cards, Mostly just for the artwork of them though, Never been big on playing it compared to MTG.

DarkValkyrieofDeath's picture

how did you get your lotus cards? just curious, i know how rare they are, yeah i find magic alot easier to play than yugioh and a lot more fun but if i had more people to play yugioh with i would ^_^

Nater90's picture

I got myself a loot, Played an epic solo summoning the all mighty horned one known as Satan, ripped a lock of my finest pubes off, attached them to his chin which is now known as his epic beard! and said I want one of each Black Lotus card and he gave them to me.

Nah, The greatest friend a guy could have got them for me, They are actually a proxy card / re release, IE: Use them in a deck at home or with a friend to try them out but never to be used in a tournament because you'd be banned.

DarkValkyrieofDeath's picture

hahaha thats an awesome story, are they as expensive as the first release of black lotus? theres a card store that has tournaments near where i live my friend goes but i have yet to play in one, would be fun tho

Nater90's picture

Haha, I'm a spas.

No they are quite a lot cheaper, There is a lot of boots around so be careful what you get.

Awesome, I've got a store near by also but I want to finish my deck first.

MetalBrewer's picture

Like a lot of the above, I’m a big Warhammer fan and also have a keen interest in the British Tommy in the World Wars. (Films, books, WW2 memorabilia, etc...)
I also follow Burton Albion Football Club, home and away, each week. We are terrible atm!

Der Todesking's picture

Horror movies, Cats, cartoons!

NocturnalOccultist's picture

I play video games every once in a while. Since summertime I spend mostly on fitness/martial arts and which I still do when I’m free from school life. I’m also into skateboarding (on and off) for the past 2-3 years. Sometimes I do DIY work.

Corvus Corax's picture

Reading, writing, playing instruments, gaming, learning languages, movies, shows, comedy, cartoons (because I kind-of am one) chatting with friends, and so much more. Ha ha.

Nater90's picture

You're a cartoon? The fuck haha.

Corvus Corax's picture

More a cartoon character. I'm a goofy/odd motherfucker. Not on purpose either.

Nater90's picture

Ah, Makes sense. If you're odd that must me a freak of nature!!! I'm all kinds of fucked up.

Corvus Corax's picture

Nah mate, you're solid bad-ass.

Nater90's picture

Hahaha, Thanks man, You're pretty epic yourself.

I'm working now so not a lot of spare time, but i love reading (i'm trying to finally read the "classics" that have been on my list of things to read for far too long - the Brothers Karamazov is next!), riding my bike, drinking with friends, etc.

DisgustingSemla's picture

I had that one borrowed from library for many months, but was just too lazy to start properly reading it :D I've read Crime and Punishment though, good book.

Hárbarðr's picture

Hahaha, Crime and Punishment is in my list too! So far i've only read The Gambler, excellent book as well.

I like sound design, home recording and general audio tinkering. Stuff like field recording, as well. I don't really have any practical/commercial uses for these skills and interests, though. Mostly, I just like twiddling knobs and making horrid noises a la Merzbow. That's been my "big" hobby for around 20 years now.

Other than that, I draw sometimes, though I'm not technically skilled. I don't have a good grasp of realism or perspective. I mostly just make crude stream-of-consciousness doodles.

Bolzenwerfer's picture

Err...Sex...
Wonder why no one has mentioned that before....

satan's radish's picture

I think sex is overrated, if you want to know the truth. :3

Corvus Corax's picture

What? Are you sure?

satan's radish's picture

I suppose it depends on the context in which it's happening.

Corvus Corax's picture

Say more, I'm curious now,

satan's radish's picture

lol. I've already said too much! No, it's nothing remotely interesting. I'm just old fashioned when it comes to sex and relationships.

Corvus Corax's picture

Ha ha. I can understand. No worries mate. Cheers!

DoctorDeath's picture

he didnt say what with!

Corvus Corax's picture

Big mouth bass. They're terrible cuddlers. Restless tail syndrome.

blackdeathdker's picture

Been surfing/body boarding for 15 years, travelling to surf, keeping fit and getting in the ocean. Running my business has been taking up the majority of my time these days and not much else so I'm also a workaholic. I don't mind the odd drop of alcoholic beverages every now and then too.

Croby's picture

Drama movies, books (especially Existentialism and Realism), MMA, Warhammer 40K (Imperial Guard), A Song Of Ice And Fire books and GoT TV show, Breaking Bad ;), serial killers. That's about it :)

I very much enjoy sticking old panini stickers (usually football) all over shoeboxes. anyone got piles of old football stickers to give away give me a shout. I'll send back a completed shoebox. I've also got kids so do a lot of playing with lego duplo, toy cars, kitchen utensils etc.

Mutilationrite's picture

I love horror movies. I only watch the cheesy and gory ones, not the new jump-scare bullshit nowadays. I plan on making an underground horror movie (or a few) in my lifetime. My favorites are "Meat for Satan's Icebox", and "Death Metal Zombies".

I'm one of those people who always has too many irons in the fire. Playing drums is a favorite pastime, I've played with four bands this year, two from my home state of Oregon, one from Wisconsin, and I just started one in California. Did two tours with Jungle Rot this year as well. Also, I will be opening my own record store in my hometown this coming January with a partner who already has a retail space. My regular "9-5" job is with my family, we run a large furniture business and as such, I've always had a passion for refinishing and restoring vintage furniture. Working on cars is another one, I have a 1973 Plymouth Duster 340 that I am restoring right now. As a more relaxing hobby, I'm an amateur rum snob (love a good aged rum) and cigar enthusiast, looking into distilling my own spirits although I'm not sure where I'd find the time. In addition to all that, I got married this year to my best friend, and more than anything I do with my time I absolutely love hanging out with my wife. I'm pretty surprised that I get any sleep...or have time to regularly check this website!

nameless_rites's picture

Hmm, when I'm not listening to music I read, everything from the Epic of Gilgamesh to Emile Zola to Michele Houellebecq, I read the classics as much as I can but I also have a lifelong passion for horror literature, especially Poe, Lovecraft, and Thomas Ligotti, also read a lot of Joseph Conrad, Herman Melville, Cormac McCarthy, etc. I just finished reading the Holy Bible (actually still got a couple books to go), always weightlifting, I used to train a lot of Judo and BJJ when my back was better... dont really play any team sports. I play magic the gathering every couple months with my brother and friends, but not like I used to as a kid. I also like shooting; I have a .45, a couple 9mms, and a couple rifles. I like to cook too; i'm no Gordon Ramsay but I can toss some shit together in the kitchen.

Nater90's picture

I like you!

I also love to read classic literature, Poe is by far my favourite, and William Blake, I have a fuck ton of MTG cards and a few decks, Not played in a long time but hoping to as I found a place locally! Really great people too.
