Topic: Music, movies, hobbies, etc.


What interests do you all have? Just curious, since all of our conversations seem to focus on just one topic (the military oddly enough haha), I figured it would be kind of a kick to put some more intell out on the table, right?

Me, I like death metal, french art films with subtitles, and needlepoint.

Just kidding, I listen almost exclusively to Country (surprise there, huh?) witha bit of motown and classical for variety. Can't beat Westerns and war movies at the theater. And I spend most of my time in the summer mountainbiking and horseback riding and in the winter skiing and boarding. I also do a lot of shooting, got my first shotgun at age 6 and never looked back (qualified as expert with the M16 and M9 too baby, yeah I am that good ). When I'm not trying to graduate from college and finally get my commission, I work as a volunteer firefighter and construction worker back home. My wishlist for branching is Armor Military Police, Infantry, Aviation, and Quartermaster with a branch detail combat arms in that order.

Well, that about does it for me, let's hear about the rest of you all.

I like southern rock, and basically anything with a decent beat and good moral message. Im preety open to any movies that dont put animals as the protagonist and use humans as the root of all evil, and have never shot a gun in my life. I love doing absolutly nothing and watching football, and enjoy working out and participating in seasonal sports.

Sounds good, that brings up another topic, what sports have you/do you play? I played soccer, wrestled, ran track and cross country, and was briefly on a downhill ski team.

So, GuyontheRight, I take it you really enjoyed that classic movie "Cats and Dogs," huh? Haha.

My favorite genres of music include punk, hardcore, metalcore, techno, and rap. I don't really have a preference to any specific kind of movie as long as it isn't a musical. I wrestled for one year my freshman year of high school. I played in band from 5th to 9th grade. I am a news junkie. I enjoy reading mostky nonfiction, biographies, math books, physics books, history books, and religious material. I am actively involved in InterVarsity Christian Fellowship on my campus. I like to hunt birds or squirrels. Mostly just because there are so many of them I can keep shooting. I would be too bored to try to hunt deer or big game. My best hunting story is I had one round left in my .22 rifle and didn't want to waste it shooting into the air so I figured I'd take a shot at a hummingbird in a nearby tree and drilled it. Blew out the entire middle cubic inch of it from 20 yards away. It was pretty cool. Other than that I enjoy military anything even though I have never had any plans to go into it and will never go into the military though I've always wanted to. Guess that's all.

The irnonic thing is my family owns that movie, along with Finding Nemo.

Anyway some more stuff about me...I play high school football at a Maryland Catholic School(Defensive Back on JV) and I'll be trying out for varsity tennis this year. I enjoy playing gold, even though I avarage a 120 score on a par 3 course. I love to ski and kneeboard, other then that I dont do any extreme sports. I have a fat old dog who I love to walk, and love sports teams from Buffalo.

And today is my 15th birthday

Hey Happy Birthday!

Good to hear from you all, diplomatic_means, you are the first person I have ever heard of who enjoys reading those books, more power to you. Any reason why you won't be joining us? Come to the green, don't be afraid..... Haha.

Yeah GuyontheRight, my roommate decided that he had to see "Finding Nemo" last week, so we spent the evening with the girls downstairs watching the dang thing and listening to Ellen Degenerate's voice. It was pretty funny though because my buddy is the huge bastard who is right now trying to get on as a model for the Men's Fitness magazine, not exactly the type you'd expect to rent that movie.

It's not my place in the world to be in the military, just to support them as best I can.

Well that's definitely a respectable position, but to pull the recruiter card, there's a place in the military for everyone. Just kidding, do what you want obviously. We definitely appreciate all the support we get.

Hm...

Music: Anything, JUST PLAY IT LOUD, OK!?
Movies: Most of them, as long as they have some big guns in them..
(hm, that could easily be misinterpreted??)
Hobbies: www.military-quotes.com 8)

And now some serious answers:
I have a 1 and half years old daughter, so most of my time I spend with my family, or I'm working. (both with this site and my real work.. )
I used to skydive for some years, but I had to take a break from that last summer, so I traded my skydiving rig for some scuba diving equipment instead.
In the winter I like to ride my snowboard..
Because of my little daughter I don't have time for so many hobbies right now, but she'll get her first skydiving rig, scuba equipment and snowboard when she's getting three years old (or something like that).

But I get to do so much fun stuff in my work, so I don't really need that many hobbies anyway.. 8)
