I'm with Lounge Lizard. My hobbies sort of run in cycles. But overall I enjoy gaming (both PC and console), collecting anime, music - mainly collecting / mixing, but I do some of my own stuff whenever the bug bites (Roland workstation and an old Korg) - working on the car (but no garage, so not often enough), and of course brewing.

And I'd concider learning a second language a hobby. I've been trying to teach myself Japanese off and on for the last few years and I still probably couldn't hold a conversation
Up Next: ???

I bought the first two levels (out of three) of the Pimsleur Spanish audio courses off of eBay. Dr Pimsleur's courses are the way to go. Highly recommended by a lot of folks, but a tad pricey. They are offered in Japanese. Check them out!

Constantly modifying my home/RV/car
Planting trees & shrubs. I pick up 100 douglas firs Wed. for the west slope.

wwII 1/48 scale static warbirds.. i have about twenty different planes, from four engine bombers down to the little fighters and scout planes i used to build before i started brewing.

computers/games...i like to geek out on medieval total war multiplayer. been playing that online since 2002, there is a hardcore group of geeks from around the word i know more about than the people on my street.

grilling meat over the coals... making hommade pizza.

hiking with my daughter in the metroparks or the neighbors wooded lots behind my house.

arguing with my wife
A barrel of malt, a bushel of hops, you stir it around with a stick
The kind of lubrication to make your engine tick

never argue with an idiot, they'll just drag you down to their level and beat you with experience.

I drink beer and work on my plans for world domination. Some how that involves working on the perfect beer recipe. A recipe so good, all who drink the resulting beverage will come under my power.
I may not be an expert, but I did stay at a Holiday Inn Express........ 6 months ago.

Fishing - mostly Fly fishing, Horses - have one lazy-ass quarter horse, and chasing a tennis ball around the court.

Guitar (all kinds of music)

Generally anything outdoors

I go rock-climbing, and see this actually as my primary hobby. Being 2+hrs from the closest decent cliff away, and having family, keeps me from going as often as I would like.
