On a different note. Drinking heavily. I shouldn't be allowed on my laptop after a few...

Four Jaegerbombs, two vodka and coke (one a double, I think - maybe two) and a very a strong cider.

The other thing that goes BOOM!

Guns! I have a love for marksmanship and their mechanics greatly interest me.

My other interest is crossfit. Which, not enough people know about. Great fun!

I love my cars and my driving, even slow, terrible handling cars are a laugh for me. For a few years I spent plenty of cash modifying my s15. It makes 330hp at the wheels at 20psi of boost and I think it's one of the best shapes out there. I realized cars are a rich mans game but I still have and love the thing. I now live in the city but I can't bring myself to sell it. Here I am on the skid pan a few years back.

One day when the time is right, I want to do track days or drift or rally or something.

Im thrilled to see what you guys are into, I get a real sense of pleasure when people discuss what they are passionate about. It reveals such a beautiful side of humanity.

Anyway, when I was a bit younger (read: at college), besides music I was into philosophy, science, reading, atheism and art. I jokingly call it my 'intellectual period'.

Nowadays, its 99% music. I love being both passive (listening to music, buying vinyl and CD's, writing reviews, etc) and active (writing, recording, performing, arranging, teaching) with music. Music is my bread and butter, and its in my life every day which I am endlessly thankful for.

Appart from music, the only thing I could do for hours on end is billiard games, such as pool (UK and US) and snooker. I got a custom snooker cue made for me last christmas and I have played with it at least once a week since.

Mary, sorry I missed this, been kinda busy. Wow, just wow! I love the vibe, & you look stunning :) Who put the setup together (props, etc). Is that your doing, or some photo/theatrical facility? Either way, what a great look, & would certainly transfer to stage too :)

Thank you kind sir :) There's a local photography studio here in Cincinnati that specializes in retro shoots. It was their set, the clothes were mine. They also did the hair and makeup. It would be a great stage look but I would need a team with me every time I perfomed just to get me looking that way...lol.

The fun part was that this was done the morning of the Ringo concert I went to. I headed off to Nashville in different clothes but with the full hair and makeup : )

That sounds really sweet. I hate gardening but I like flowers and plants. Fortunately my wife likes gardening.

I'm really into the NFL (American Football)

I collect Giants memorabilia ....mostly stuff from the 50s and 60s

I also customize NFL helmets to exact specifications of peoples favorite players ....even down to a specific game....and sell them

I get a lot of the decals, chins straps. facemasks and such from random equipment managers around the league that I have become friendly with over the years

Winemaking, travel, sailing, and motorsports. Motorsports I'm the most passionate about, though.

My wife and I built the '86 Mustang road race car pictured below, which we just sold a couple years ago (although we have first right of refusal to buy it back if or when the buyer wants to change cars). I'm currently between track cars, and looking for our next project. Just spent last weekend in California at the Monterey Historics, looking at cars. Might have to do an early Mustang track car next. Have a team coming together for the 24 Hours of Lemons at Thunderhill next year, as well, and we'll probably build something utterly silly just for that one (since there's a $500 claiming rule for that event).

I've served as a driving instructor and steward for a number of car clubs that do track events all over the country. One of my favorite deals has been to travel to Vegas for the instructor gig with the Pantera Owners Club of America at their annual convention in March/April. Missed it this year for only the second time in 16 years...

Member of the IEEE, SAE, and AES. If it is nerdy and involves one of my passions, I'm there!

Nissan USA screwed the pooch on this one. They finally decide to bring over the 180sx, but they threw a truck motor in it and rebadged it as the 240sx. Then the same with the US version of the S14. I've got one (Zenki) and decided to keep the KA24DE and turbo'd the snot out of it. It is a torque monster. Then, right when things start getting good and the sexy S15 rolls onto showrooms across the world, we got...nothing. The S15 has eluded me for years, but one day I will find an import and have it regulated. I'll park it next to the FD3S.
Good driving by the way.

My other passion is the thing I did to earn a living for about 40 years, writing and producing TV. I still keep my hand in with a website aimed at helping newbies get into the biz. This and drums have totally filled my soul.

This isn't intended as an ad, just an honest answer to a good question.

Yeah, it's a bits weird that you guys missed out, I think it could have sold well. I had a 180 too.

At least your used cars are cheap.

So Im very excited... today I signed up for my next photo shoot :) This one will be a little different though, less sweet, more rock and roll (leather pants arrived in the mail today -nuff said). Plan on including part or all of the drum kit in these pics. Happens next month....I'll update you then :)


Happy Drumming and whatever other passions you may have!

Watching Baseball.
How do you like how I do it?
I go to my fav sports club and I seat my girlfriend in the perfect place. :)
I buy her whatever she wants to eat and drink.
She is happy, and I am happy with the arrangement.
It works for me.

Backpacking and camping.

Cycling. Especially endurance events. The longer the better. Not RAAM long, but a couple hundred miles are nice.

So on a much lighter note than my other thread I currently have going... I'm very excited because tomorrow I'm getting more pinup shots done! And this time I'm taking the drum kit (or at least part of it) with me for the shoot. This should be fun! :) Hopefully in a few weeks I'll have a new profile pic. Stay tuned...
