Other Hobbies?

Postby Mat » Mon Dec 18, 2017 9:52 pm

What do you guys do when you aren't listening to vinyl? What are the other vices out there.

This become a larger thought bubble when I recently found out the owner of Genesis Speakers is a pretty big MMO player (like myself) and two analog junkies ended up having a conversation that was totally out of left field!

Cars... model trains...MMOs/video games... Micro Pig Gymnastic training... etc?

I used to be into trains (HO scale), aurora car stuff when I was a kid. Lifelong science fiction reader & movie guy (from classically bad to good).

Techie stuff in general (sciences)

I also like movies of all types (TCM is great!)

Funny you should mention that... I usually played as the Main Tank (if anyone knows what that means) and was running a 20 man in WoW. We get all organized, met, potion up, and dad comes in all excited saying I had to "come in and hear this"! Not wanting to miss the father son moment, I tell the group "brb". I come back about 15 minutes later to a dead character, and everyone SCREAMING at each other in Ventrillo (voice chat program) ... the Off tank tried to step up and failed as main, newbee attempts to off tank, they all had totally doing the fight wrong... EPIC WIPE! :D :P :D

Before I forget Mat , I also play video games like World of Tanks and now Im playing Call of Duty World War 2 . But one reason that I cant play this game all day long is because it gives me headache’s secondary to eyestrain . And of course my kids whose into gaming as well .

hahaha. Nice! I played a tank on EQ. Lots of hours on that game and raiding 4 nights a week was like a 2nd job! I quit EQ 3 or 4 years ago. Only classes that I've played on WoW are DPS classes. I'll probably never play a tank on any game again lol
