1: Music. This include my band, my electronic project, as well as music in general. If I went deaf, I don't know how I would handle it.

2: Motorcycles. Love 'em. I love riding, looking at bikes, reading about bikes, teaching friends to ride, helping people choose and buy motorcycles.

3: Books. I'm on a Pratchett kick at the moment, but I love horror fiction as well. I love to learn, and I will read up to 4 books at the same time.

4: The occult. Duh.

5: Chilled out nights, with my mates, around a blazing brazier in Winter, eating BBQ, drinking Jack Daniels, listening to music, talking crap, laughing, and having a good time.

What are yours?

I couldn't stand being deaf. Only myself to listen to? I'd go insane!

My favorite things:

1. Cars. Wewt. Check out this little baby, I've been putting more work into her. This is my car, for anyone who missed the thread where I bought it some time around December.


2. Warhammer 40,000. I love the whole history and fluff even more than I love the models. I'd be into it even if it was only books and stuff.

3. The Wastoids. I wub j00 guys.

4. Metal. Mmmmhmmm.

5. 5....... 5...........porn?

You know you're on a geek forum when nobody mentions sex as a favourite thing. At least Nid mentioned porn. Maybe I've got to get back to my Slaaneshi persona from way back and do some promotion around here.

My favourite things... well, depends on what you mean. Favourite things to do? To have? To aspire to? I like a good, exciting, fantastic story, whether book or movie or otherwise. As long as it makes good escapism and at the same time tells you something about life.
I don't concider myself to be really into music, but I do have it playing virtually all the time. Just seems a fundamental part of furnishing really.
Nature is a similar must-have. Again, I don't hug trees or anything, but I have to be able to take a quiet walk sometimes and see some non-human life.
Toys are important too, I'm a guy after all. Miniatures, collectibles, boardgames, lego, action figures... anything trivial that is fun when taken seriously. (important things on the other hand are usually only fun when you don't take them seriously)
The internet gets a vote too. An annoying piece of work at the best of times, but it's really amazing when you take a step back to look at it. The stuff you can find on it, and the people you can meet, there's a lot we can do now that we couldn't before. Like download porn.

Shadowheart's right. Sex ought to be in there somewhere.
1. Sex
2. Lady-types
3. Beer
4. More beer
5. More lady-types

Music and movies enter in at some point. Old GI Joe action figures too.

1 - Martial arts of almost any stripe. I personally gear more towards RBSD and MMA, but the traditional stuff is also fun.

2 - Free time. I can use it to sleep, paint, watch Jerry Springer on the telly, sleep, go to the pub, whatever the hell I want without anyone nagging at me. Free time rocks.

3 - My dog.

4 - The internet. It's like chatting to your mates, researching your interests at a library and watching the news all at the same time. The internet rocks. Plus it has porn.

5 - Good books.

5. Gaming- it roxz :D

4. Being noticed- i know this is a very strange thing for a guy to say, but being noticed for doing somthing anything is nice because i dont mind attention and recignition (im not going to do stuff embarrasing for attention or pretend to be depressed but still when i do somthing that is noticed its cool

3. Helping People. This is a great feeling witch i love helping people, forsay doing dishes (im a hypocondriac so i dont like to touch dirty things, so cleaning is a problem 4 me :)) or helping friends buy giving advice or doing there dishes

2. Socialising- i allways like socialising its fun and causes lots of fun problems
1.Acting- its my life, its what i want to do with my life, and its dead fun and i feel im very devoted and well dressed :D.

hmm not many materialistic things you know what that says about my character :D

Well You Guys actually rated around number seven (Behind Chocolate and Coffee), but due to overindulgence and not wanting to look that cruel and heartless, i bumped ye up a couple of spots ;)

30-03-2005, 05:10
We rate higher than coffee?

Outwhatnow? :p

1. Music.
2. Gaming. Online, particularly. Xbox, pc, whatever. Anything except cs and rpg's.
3. 40k, spose.
4. Just going for walks. Walking to work, to the bus, whatever. Preferrably combined with number 1, on the way to number 2 or 3. :p
5. Reading.

Those are strictly speaking hobbies of course. Sure, I'm important, you guys are important, but saying that you guys are one of my "hobbies"... Well, it's closer to the truth than I'd like to admit. :D Oh, no, I wasnt supposed to type that...

And all of the above is better with friends.

I don't know, but it must be bad if we made doors to keep it out.

Anyway, I was wondering if I could add an unofficial sixth thing I like
Skyyyyyyyyrockets in flight, Afternoon delight...

Anyway, a number seven addition to that would be having something to do that I know I both need to do, and WANT to do.
It's really a good thing :)

1. My comrades and clan (i.e. friends and family).
2. Wargaming, especially my Guardsmen
3. My guns and gear.
4. My big, sexy brain.
5. Hanging out in a biker bar doing that crazy karaoke thing/ the constant quest to find a good relationship.

Oh, well

1) My kid. He's awesome.
2) My social network -> buddies, mates, family. Hanging out, play games, drinking, whatever.
3) Working out, jogging, playing football -> I need some physical exercise during the week to be happy. Now I haven't been able to run/play football for a month, and it's starting to freak me out.
4) Women. I have found that I can't really be comfortable with my situation unless there is at least one fine woman around.
5) Going out, which should include 2 and 4 as well as beer (And punk if I'm lucky).
