Sorry if a thread like this already exists I tried searching for it and didn’t find anything.
I’m curious what people on this site do for fun other that analog/digital gaming? do you have any other hobbies? I’ll start.
I really enjoy reading books on politics and history. I’ve gotten more into politics over history in the last year or so. My favorite author by far is Thomas Sowell. I find myself reading quite a bit of Peter Schweizer as well. I find his books to have good information but tend to be a bit dry.
I enjoy listening to political commentary as well. I like listening to: Thomes Sowell, Peter Robinson interviews for the Hoover Institution, Ben Shapiro, Christina Hoff Summers, Camille Paglia (okay), Some Dave Rubin Interviews, Sam Harris, Larry Elder, and Jordan Peterson.
I’ve been getting back into early punk rock. The Misfits are particularly popular at my place, my wife listens to Last Caress on repeat while getting ready for the day. I also dig Cock Sparrer, The Clash, and The Ramones. Other bands/musicians I like include: Sparta, At the Drive in, Bach, The Smiths, Two Gallants, The Specials, and Nirvana. Does any one know of any fun twisted songs in the same vein as Last Caress? I’d be interested to know about them.
I miss playing drums and would like to get back into it but they’re expensive and I’m not sure that it would go over well with the four people a share walls with. Maybe some day.
I’m into guns. I have four at the moment. I’ve got a S&W .38 special, Springfield XD9, Remington 12 gauge shotgun, and a Ruger Mini 14. I’ve got several guns on the radar but again expensive so will be awhile before I’ll get another one. I really want a lever action rifle, got my eye on Marlin’s Model 1895GBL, and will probably get one next.
One hobby (not sure if it’s technically a hobby) I’d like to get into is emergency preparedness and maybe a little camping. I would like to learn how to best handle different types of survival scenarios and learn some skills to go along with that such as basic medical knowledge and sowing.
How about you? I’d be really interested in hearing what people that hang out on this site are into.
