I play guitar (although I haven't as much recently) and like to cook, sew, and craft--mainly leatherwork and beading, which is sort of an outgrowth of my American Indian heritage.

I trained freestyle (real) wrestling for many years as part of my MMA and Martial Arts training, but now i train Pro Wrestling, which while planned, the pain and impact your body goes through is very real.

both are great fun though ;)

Disabled by a stroke, I now continue to serve as an elder in the Lords church. I have since the stroke taken over the website, assumed the role of Financial Secretary and other tasks. Outside of church duties and responsibilities I spend time with my family and friends and oversee remodeling this old house. I enjoy most forms of music, enjoy audible books and old movies. No real hobbies...stroke took care of fishing, camping and etc.

I am a bedroom techno DJ and producer at heart.
I'll be happy to share a link anytime :)

Can I get that link? I'd love to give a listen.

What a fun thread!

I enjoy gardening, baking, DIY home projects, refurbishing things, and writing. I do a bit of sewing too. I enjoy horror movies and running when I can.

Fight Club: PRO in Wolverhampton under Travis Banks and Martin Zaki, Pete Dunne used to train us too before he became a tad too busy. One of the very best schools in the country :D

I assumed from the username you were a fan ;)

Only person to get it’s a reference to Ken Shamrock, well done
That’s some big names to be under. Love seeing Nanks, Dunne et al at Progress

Try commercial diving for a living especially in New England in the Winter. It's July and I still can't feel my toes...lol.

I've never tried diving, either as a hobby or as a job. I imagine it's pretty fun. must be surreal to be alone with your thoughts while submerged for a long time.

Great question! The first couple of Chucky movies, Bride of Chucky, Texas Chainsaw Massacre, anything by Stephen King (although the books can't compare, although Misery was very nicely done, imho), Trick r Treat, The Conjuring 1 & 2, The Fly (original), anything by Alfred Hitchcock, Slugs, Rubber, The Babadook, The Possession, The Priest, Interview with a Vampire, The Creep, Evil Dead & Army of Darkness, Cabin in the Woods, Deathgasm, It Follows, and there's many more. These are just the ones off the top of my head. Vincent Price movies were good too.

Other stuff - The Outer Limits, Tales of the Crypt, Are You Afraid of the Dark?, Black Mirror

I can't wait to see The Nun. There's another horror movie that I thought would be great, but I can't remember the title at the moment.

I can't count how many times I've seen Trick r Treat - it's Friday night nirvana! It sent me off an obsession with portmanteau horror films a while ago: Black Sabbath, Three Extremes, Tales from the Crypt ('72), The Theatre Bizarre, Torture Garden...

Any of the Roger Corman Poe films too, or by Dario Argento and Mario Bava.

(and The Abominable Dr. Phibes) :)

Diving in the tropics is great. Up here sucks for the most part. Cold, poor visibility, rough water, and now I have to look out for great white's....lol.
Just kidding. Sharks are pretty cool. I have been diving for over 30 years and never had a serious encounter to speak of. I did do a cage dive in Hawaii that was pretty intense. The sharks were chummed up and in a frenzy though. Just looking for a meal.

Oh hobbies. This is what I spend my money on. Millions of hobbies. Dirtbikes, archery and shooting being the main ones.

I also build custom Kydex stuff (holsters, various holders and sheaths, etc) most days, a bit at a time.
PM me so I get a notification. I don't check her regularly.
