    Default Hobbies / Fads / Phases?

    After "Spoons" guitar thread, got me thinking about how many hobbies / phases i had! When i got the guitar out to take a pic the wife rolled her eyes and said "Here we go again!" Well i did warn her what i was like!
    Over the years i've done CB radio, weightlifting, mountain biking, bmx, guitars, online gaming and being a Mod on site, cigars, power/stunt kites, aquariums, bonsai, F1, last 2 years was longboarding ,the longest one was karate lasting 6 years, now Vecs! Those are the ones i can remember! As you can see i dont do mainstream, not into football, cricket, rugby, golf etc! Am i on my own here or are you the same or always had longterm pastimes?

    Vehicle : Insignia Tourer

    Trim : Elite

    Engine : 2.0 CDTI (160ps)

    Year : 2010

    Default

    Guitars were a fad with me, I still pick it up occasionally, but never really got past the "I can play about ten chords and the first few bars of lots of songs" phase.

    I go through fads all the time, I love photography and was seriously getting into portrait photography and spent about two or three grand on lighting setups and god knows what else last year. None of the gear (apart from the camera) has been touched in months.

    But yeah, pretty much the same as you, fads in phases. Tropical fish keeping/breeding, guitars, music production, aspects of photography, etc etc etc lol

    Vehicle : Ford Kuga

    Trim : Titanium

    Engine : 2.0dtci

    Year : 2014

    Mileage : 1200

    Early hobbies were scale models, mainly WW2 era and motorbike/car maintenance. I tend to read a lot, like animals, my idiot collie is flat on the floor next to me now.
    I've dabbled in all sorts. Started doing Tai Kwan Do in military, till only instructor got posted away, DJ on military radio stations and friends parties - still have around 600 vinyl singles and same again lp's/12 inch singles. Always been interested in weapons, currently trying to find a black powder/clay shooting group in area that take novices.
    Had an SLR film camera for decades, converted a couple of years back to digital. First year I've not been a member of local camera club. Fishing, coarse, in lakes mainly, I enjoy. I love gadgets and knowing what's new out, but don't necessarily think the newest way is the best way, hate seeing traditional methods dying out. Nuff said?

    I have a hobbie Photoghraphy. It started back in 1974 and still going strong. I dread to think how many thousands of pounds I have spent on it over that time.

    I have an addictive personality, I'm all over something new like a rash, and then a month or so later I'm totally bored of it and move on to something else. This includes women, no wonder I'm single.
