    Awesome!

    hockey rules! I played hockey all the time(street hockey) when I was little. I used to get free
    tickets to LA kings games.

    currently, in my free time, I twirl frisbees around on my finger, dunk outside on the 9'6 hoop, kick soccer balls around, skateboard a little.

    I used to be a photographer, but I have lost my muse.(read: taking a break)

    and I'm a computer nerd.

    I want to start taking martial arts courses, and/or gymnastics, I would love to be able to do hand-springs, handstands, frontflips, etc.

    p.s. I was a goalie too(when I used to play)

    Play the violin!
    I'm goin for my grade 9 before christmass. I've played it since grade 1. although i'm forced to play it, i do like it. I'll probably take it at university.
     
  5. i draw... i really like working with charcoal. i have to spray some of my pieces with fixative and take them home from school.
    i love customizing/refinishing/modifying instruments. i'm planning on making an entire bass this summer.
    i also love taking walks. i walk around pond meadow park (a pond near me. it's also a park). there's tons of cool trails and paths and brooks and what not to explore. i love just being outside, walking around and looking at nature.
    i wanna get a camera and start doin' some photography this summer.

    Mountain biking, painting/drawing, reading, sitting in cafes. Add that to music and you have a pretty comprehensive list of my free time activities...

    Sounds like the life man. My friends and I used to play street hockey all the time. The YMCA in town used to have a rollerhockey league... but they said it got too rough so the disbanded it...

    i guess thats what they got for making it a no-check league.

    Those were the days :D Personally NHL 94 was my favorite game of all time. I was only 10 or 11 at the time, but I loved playing as the Bruins in that game :) The line of Juneau, Oates, Neely destroyed everyone, with Bourque and Sweeney at the point :D Good times.

    Sadly EA's games hacing taken a horrible downward fall since 2000.

    Thankfully sega has made an amazing game in NHL2K3 :D I am so hyped up for NHL 2K4 I simply cannot wait for the game. It looks to be the most amazing hockey game, possibly ever!

    My friends and I (4 of us) had two different seasons. One was in NHL Hitz. That was just all out fun and arcade hockey at it's best. The other was a serious sim season in NHL 2K3. Putting ourselves in the NHL and playing a season.

    Friday nights sure were fun :D

    Write. Working on a couple novels, a collection, currently develping scripts for as many as 5 comics, on the web and off. Write lyrics too.

    Big movie buff.

    Read a lot, sci-fi, fantasy, and fiction, comics.

    I actively doodle, and keep intending to actually work on my art, of which I keep showing potential.

    Vocalist. Sing? Barely, but I do metal vocals, for, duh, metal bands. Probably gonna be the next band thing I do, that (be a vocalist).

    Some video games. Used to be a gamer before I discovered bass, so I still get the itch about once a week. Not too bad at them, either.

    And lately: exercise :eek:

    Oh, and cultivating facial hair.
