I'm into dogging.

Ok, seriously- I'm do a lot of exercise- weights and cycling mainly.
We do a lot of travel as well- living on the French/German/Swiss border affords a lot of choice.
I read a lot- mainly about travel, art and european history.
Started getting into circuit bending, which I guess is kinda music related.

... and being a Dad to an 11 week old English Bulldog puppy which keeps me pretty busy.

Other than GS...been playing a lot of Call of Duty online. Anybody got balls, holla at me.

Kind of a true artist all around.

I used to do a lot of art work for money on the side, but it got out of hand.
Here's a 17x13 portrait of MJ I did in 10th grade. What ya think?

When I don't produce, I dance to the music. Love the NewSchool Hip-Hop dance. Also, I started singing a year ago (broke every single glass in my appartment).

I love reading gearslutz member's posts too, but I think we all do ^^.

It's funny, when you know your own ability you do anything to get out of hurting someone. I cant think of an instance where I have really had to unload, your body language tends to squash confrontation. It's nice to know that you can protect your loved ones at any given time though and not getting too deep but it changes the way you live your life.

Between my regular job (pharmaceuticals) and the Studio, I manage to fit a few things into my schedule.

1. Golf......I try to get out 2 times a month.

2. Paintball.....Played yesterday, that game is straight up war. Not the speedball that you see on tv. We are all camoflauged out running around in the woods. 2nd time playing and had to invest in a gun.

3. Battlefield 2 (online gaming)..... I havent played this in awhile but every so often I will hop online and get in the action.

4. GearSlutz...Whenever I get home from work, I usaully will end the night by reading this forum and then read it again when I wake up or before work. I dont call it a hobby but its my Wall Street Jounal of Audio.


BIG 3rd,

I miss the "D"......Where are you located in Detroit? All my family is there in and around the city. I have to get up there and hit a few resturants I have been missing. Mainly in GreekTown and Mexican Town.

peace,
Eddie

Shoot Pool, Basketball, practice on piano or guitar. Read alot of financial texts. (I sit around and do the valuation of corporations to stay sharp incase I need a job).

Also do alot of brainteasers to stay sharp for interviews.

For example a simple one:

If your sock drawer is in a dark room and it contains 9 blue socks and 11 red socks, what's the minimum number of socks that you can take into the living room (where the light is on) to assure you have a matching pair?

(This one is VERY easy but they get harder)

3 producers are going to a convention and decide to share a hotel room. The room is 30 bux. Each producer puts in 10 dollars. After the producers check in, the desk attendent realized he overcharged the producers, the rate should have been 25 bux. He sends the bell hop up to give the producers their change. The bell hop decides that it would be too difficult for 3 people to share 5 bux, so he decides to take two and gives each one of the producers a dollar back. If the producers paid $9 each, and the bell hop kept two, where's the missing dollar?
