Yo-yo's, juggling, DDR/Stepmania (pad and keyboard), electric guitar, bass guitar, anime, spinning poi/glowsticks, reading (mostly Dostoevsky and Proust over the past year), skateboarding, drawing(rarely)...I think that's it.

Audiophile Headphone Audio is a pretty serious hobby/addiction for me.

I went through Senn HD 555, 595, and 600, before going to the AT-W1000 followed by an AKG 702 (with moon audio silver dragon cable) which got sold leaving me with Beyer DT-990's, Senn MM550-x, and this run-on sentence.

And thats just the headphones, let alone the other gear.

I also used to play competitive dota and LoL, played singed. Put the team on my back, greg jennings style.

Quote from: Daniel Beaver;238210
My number one hobby: modifying Nerf guns, and having wars with them.
That is a little bit tangental to my hobby of doing prop replicas for display and for costume. Many guns in sci-fi movies were based on real guns with parts added to them, but it is much easier when making a gun replica to start with a plastic toy or airsoft representation.
Sometimes builders like to create their own gun designs just for the fun of building, and there are even competitions in "custom" imaginary designs, some where the base even has to be a toy. Especially in these cases, Nerf guns are very often used as base.
There are also rubber dart toy versions of a few guns in Star Wars, that are really suitable for conversion into looking like the real thing. When you carry around a large gun for hours at a "troop", you first want something that is legal to carry, and second, you really want it to be lightweight.

here is the working Blade Runner blaster my dad built.

Piano

Everything else is right though! frame isnt as rusty anymore either I just left it outside one night there and later fixed it up with some scotch brite.

Lots of other hobbies & sports and stuff.  I do a lot of DIY, currently renovating a Victorian terrace (1904), electronics (building amps, radios, making speakers etc), woodworking (building furniture), general linux geeky stuff, cooking, brewing beer.  Sportswise, I do a lot of running (fell running mainly), climbing, mountaineering and bike riding.  Climbing is my main sport really.

Stuff I used to do a lot - table top roleplaying and live action roleplaying

Well, I have been interested in art for as long as I can remember (mainly drawing and painting), I enjoy learning the history of other countries, I've been interested in languages for a very long time and currently I am learning Japanese, Korean, and Mandarin Chinese, I like to go running at the school track from time to time, and I am very interested in programming (C++ and Java mainly). One other thing that I have gotten into recently is photography, I've been wanting to get into it a bit more, still saving up for enough to get the camera I want though.
Current keyboards I own:

Hobbies cost money, and interests are free.  Learning Korean, Starcraft, and counterculture are my hobbies as well as my interests I suppose.

Then on the other hand, I do a lot of gaming and tear down and fixing up of PC's and other stuff. A car guy too. I have lots of hobbies. A jack of all trades if you will. =P

I collect a lot of various pop culture stuff, incl. statue (Sideshow Collectibles etc.) and movie prop replicas (swords, blasters, helmets).
I also run a YouTube channel, where I talk about those things and do reviews and unboxings.
I also collect a bit of LEGO.

Other than that, gaming and music. :)

So you do unboxings for pop culture and movie prop stuff? That sounds pretty cool
