The Vices!
 
What are you guys addicted to? Or maybe not even addicted. Something besides drums that you just love too much to quit?

For starters, I'm a beer nerd, especially when it comes to Stouts, dark ales, and just about any lager. I prefer craft brews like Flying Dog, Oscar Blues, New Belgium is probably my favorite - I worship their 1554, and about all their Lips of Faith beers. And of course, I like some commercial stuff like Sam Adams, and George Killian.

I'm also big on food. If I wasn't such an active cat, I think I'd weigh four-hundred pounds. I mean, I'm no small fry as it is, but the way I put it away, I'd be huge. I dig fast food, but I also love pizza, authentic Chinese, Italian, Mexican, or the simple stuff like fried chicken. I worship good barbecue. I'm convinced I could live off barbecue and die of a heart attack at 35 with a smile on face.

Chardonay, jalapeno flavored potato chips, and video games. My every evening contains at least 2 of those things.

Fast cars with great handling and their engines in unusual places!

Would they be air cooled and German?

Indeed they would, at least one! The other is mid-engined, water cooled, and also German.

Ice cream (usually some variation of chocolate or mocha); my iPad (don't leave home without it) and if I told you anything else I'd be violating my 5th amendment right to not incriminate myself :)

Coffee. And it's not just a figurative addiction.

I have no vices. Now, voices; plenty of those in my head.

I spent my money on fast cars, booze and women.

The rest I squandered.

Coffee for sure, and Dairy Queen chocolate milkshakes.

Bicycles.

Non-cyclists would say that owning three bikes is a problem.

Cyclists know about n+1, or S-1.

Too many to mention, but at least these days they're all legal..........well, most of the time.

I've decided, in reality I give up nothing. I just transfer from one vice to another.

For sure. The roadie, the mtb AND the fixie........and everyone knows the fixie is little more than a feeble attempt to stave off appearing old!! :-)

In order of priorities:

1. Drums
2. Mopar muscle, new Challenger SRT8
3. Good food and lots of it
4. Good beer and lots of it

Fast cars,
Track days,
classic cars
good food
laughs (although these seem rarer)
listening to great music
Moaning about work
relaxing in the sun
Did I mention cars?

Something besides drums? Buying CD's is at the top in tandem with spending an hour or two per day listening to them. Beer - in particular trying micro beer from all over the place. Lastly, I can't live without coffee on a daily basis.

Close!

Instead of fixie I built a cyclo-cross style bike last year to use for my bike commute days. Too hilly where I am for a fixie, and I don't usually sport an ironic beard.

The build project was fun - I wanted Campagnolo and I wanted disc brakes, which meant I had to build my own wheels. The first kerb I jumped off was an exciting moment!
