just wondering what other passions you guys may have.

and what type of career you fellas are doing? or maybe your career is in drumming? or maybe even studying?
maybe you guys have some goals of such with drumming or away from drumming.

just drop a few lines in here. see what each other's up to.

Kyle. :wink:

Well I used to be really into computers and programming, but since I found my way to the drums I've completely set that hobby aside. I do still play a lot of games though (currently playing UrbanTerror), and I watch TV-series episodes like 2-3 hours per day. A few months ago I knew I was destined to become an 'IT guy', but lately I'm not getting the same great feeling from doing cool stuff on my PC anymore. Currently I feel like I'm the kinda guy who could have a shit job and live for the drums/music.

If I had the skills I'd love to work in a studio.

yeah i'd love to do studio work myself.

im currently studying at TAFE (to get a job to make some cash :D), when im not studying i devote my time to drums and bass 2-3 hours most days.
and catch gigs whenever i can in the city. soundwave festival in march should be awesome.

so my life will soon be...

Work
Music
Concerts/gigs
Friends+family
and my strong passion to drink.

doesn't seem too bad..

Aside from my wife, pets and cars are my other passions. We have a 12 year old Rott/Pit mix (before you say something, be sure you actually know what you're talking about), a four year old ball python, a three year old cat, and five rats...no, the rats aren't to feed the snake. And I have almost as much fun and frustration working on cars as I do playing drums. It's a nice outlet where I get to use both my hands and my brain at the same time.

My job rocks to be fair. I play computer games and then talk about them on the radio, as well as presenting on other stations.

I have a dog called Rolo who's a Springer Spaniel and completely bonkers. I also love the gym and sports, mainly rugby.

As for passions, drums are my only passion. I could spend all day playing, tinkering and just looking at the damn things!

Lets see, wife, 3 kids, and one dog do enough. I also enjoy motorcycling, skiing, mountain biking, and hiking. Trying to get back into shape, but hate the gym, so working on it naturally.

Good thread! My other passions include: my wife and 2 daughters, playing my PS2 (waiting for the price drop on PS3 so I can finally play "Assassin's Creed"), woodworking, light home repair/fixups, and web design. I am a full partner in a local internet company here where I live, called Phantom X Productions, or PXP for short. We do websites for about 300 clients ranging from bands to models to clubs to businesses, swag, multi-media, sound design, DVD creation/duplication, CD covers, anything that you can imagine. It's challenging but fun, and I really enjoy it.

No doubt. Thankfully I have a very supportive wife.

And yeah, I have to make sure I wash my hands before putting them into the snake enclosure. Ball python bites don't really hurt, but they sure do bleed.

Aside from drums, I make electronic music of various flavors, play keys and dj.

Aside from music, I love reading a good book. Getting outdoors and hiking long distances/rock climbing are fun too.

Hmmm, one of my other passions is Beat Box. Anyone here beat box too ? Well, i picked it up only recently, like one month ago and started to try improving myself. Its cool in a way, you can make beat box your hobby to kill time get a good impression from others. Plus, it wouldn't require anything from you, just your mouth as far as i know. :D
