I know we all probably spend hours in front of PC's all day, editing designing and mixing.
What do you guys like to do with your time off?

In my spare time, I really enjoy playing with my DSLR (been learning how to create HDR), I like to keep fit and also enjoy playing Darts, i'm big fan of the English darts scene.

I Love watching sport on TV, especially Aussie rules footy, I also enjoy NFL and English Premier League.
I enjoy playing guitar, I'm also an amateur barista.

Of course I love checking out great films especially to hear the fantastic sound in the cinema by the talented people in this forum.

It sounds sad but I'll play computer games or read forums. I also enjoy cooking and drinking wine (is that a hobby? )

Antique radio restoration and associated forums.
But seriously, if I have enough time to do that I am also feeling totally stressed out about where the next projects will come from!

I'm an audio engineer?

I don't think I have hobbies. I read and post on Gearslutz in my spare time and occasionally watch movies with my girlfriend. I don't even go out anymore

Video Games, Reading, Films, Astrology and Photography.

Although, Films and reading aren't really 'hobbies' as I'm either reading about Post Production audio or listening to the audio in films :P.

Cheers

Cooking, noodling around on the guitar, playing Gran Turismo 5 a bit and I'm trying to take up tennis but the weather went to hell here after my first few sessions in the autumn so waiting for some spring warmth before heading out again!

Outside of work and helping to look after this joint though I probably don't have as much free time as I'd like.

when I'm not making music, I climb, do yoga, mountain bike occasionally, drink too much and dance to music (I never feel I can do this enough).

I'm single, so... yea I get lots of time.

Let's see...
- Noodle around on a home built Les Paul double cutaway that was made from some left over mahogany from the first console I built for the ole' Fairlight Prodigy.
- Wrought iron fence work that filled my time waiting for the '72 El Camino I'm restoring to come back from the paint shop. (Had a MIG welder doing nothing in the garage.)
- Try to get the El Camino finished, but been sidetracked by building new console for the Fairlight Constellation and now a new system for studio B.
- Computer tech support for the neighbors.
- Flipping houses when not working on my own.
- Digital art and design.
- Meetings with the local ADD Anonymous chapter, if the mood strikes me and if I've got nothing else to do..

In my spare time I

blog
watch Dallas Stars ice hockey (and sometimes Cowboys football)
shoot timelapses and short docs
watch movies and TV with the wifey
lust after gear and software
have political arguments with friends (a legit hobby IMO)
casual gaming on the iphone and ipad (all 3 stars on every level of angry birds released so far...)
drink beer.

You know, I have it pretty good in this harsh harsh world.

Trying in vain to have all three motorcycles actually in running order at one time. As soon as I fix one, another goes down...I think they somehow plan it that way.

Ducati ST4s
BMW R100S
Suzuki Bandit 1200

That, and gardening. My specialty is California native grasses and wildflowers.

I read alot.

I love war history so i'm a WWII nut. I'm particularly interested from the point of view of the germans and soviets. I also have an obsession with submarines. I enjoy chess although I haven't really the time to stay as good as I once was. I like listening to podcasts the topics I rather enjoy are philosophy and psychology. I exercise quite a bit and I enjoy champagne.

I collect scores and music books. Have about 400 of which 50 of them are original printings. ALso have about 60 theory/misc books and about 16 specific composer biography books.

Pretty much nothing since my newborn arrived in December...
Haven't been able to keep up martial arts in the last 2 years (Jujitsu).
The Xbox360 fills in any (short) gaps between work, the kids, and watching the odd movie or TV show (just finished the first season of Breaking Bad).

Oops, nearly forgot that one! I've been using my bike to commute so much that nice country rides are merely a foggy memory for me. But I did indulge myself in a lovely new Triumph Street Triple last April. Super light, loads of fun, and most of all: GREAT SOUND!
