Hobby thread



Apologies if this has been done before, had a quick search but couldn’t find anything similar.

What would you class as your hobbies? What hobbies would you like to become part of your life? To what extent do you think you have the capacity to start a new hobby rather than just talking about doing so on an internet forum?

Always been someone who has just had moderate interest in music, books, gaming etc. but in a way that is more of an “interest” than a hobby…and I’d like greater focus. I guess having my dog is the closest thing…takes up time with training/walking, but it is very rewarding.




I might get into larping


trying to haggle for a 2nd hand badge maker


Quite into penoid card games. Not sure if I’ve mentioned that before.


A lot of creative stuff / taking my amateurish ability way too seriously


Not sure I can say boardgames any more, because any event that I go to with people I don’t already know is always filled with absolute fucking Klingons and I can’t be arsed with that.

I think all the bearable people get removed from the general boardgaming public over time as they assemble into groups with the other bearable people, such that the public meet-ups are necessarily the bottom of the fucking barrel.


trying to do so many things that I cant do any

right now I am listening to a podcast about Buffy whilst practising French and waiting for my pear frangipane to bake


Which buffy podcast?


Buffering the Vampire Slayer

you into it?


Used to do theatre stuff as a hobby. Hard to do outside of uni though- I can’t sing and amateur drama in the real world tends to be musicals or doing a panto. Alas :scream:


My main hobby at the minute is snooping on the financial details of directors of firms i’ve worked for on company check websites.

That and watching Cuban pornography.


No but I’m in the market for one, want to do a full rewatch and listen to a episode by episode podcast at the same time, there’s quite a few and don’t know which one is the best.

The talk the line podcast where people talk about stuff they are into, the Kate Nash one was on buffy, really enjoyed that


I’m into thinking about making music at the moment, hope to move into more actual music making shortly


I like this one

there’s maybe a little bit too much of them pointing out inconsistencies and things that are unrealistic but they’re super fans and it’s quite light hearted


I’ll check it out thanks


the pear frangipane is absolutely sensational

poached the pears with spices and booze before adding it


buffering is ace - have been a fan of jenny’s music forever so it was mad when i realised she was doing this stuff too!


Trying to get out and join things and watch things or listen to things instead of staying in the house.


aell, my entire last week nights were to do with warhammer in some way. Playing, painting, co-op with someone on total warhammer online…pretty much rules my entire life and finances.

No need for anything else.
