Ep.126 Mistake, No. Happy Accidents, Yes! (Curt - Painter)

(Curt - Painter)
 
In this episode, I had the honour to have Curt as my guest. He shared with me his interest in painting as his hobby.
 
Deep down inside there’s a Bob Ross in all of us, you just need a little spark of inspiration and maybe a happy tree. Curt pulls a lot of inspiration from Bob Ross’s work but likes to add his personal touch to it to make it more of his own taste and that pretty much the whole concept of being a passionate artist. If you want to get started with painting but don’t know where to start, you can do what Curt did and buy a Bob Ross kit on Amazon, because the first step is always giving it a try.

Ep.125 The Rotating Accuracy (Justin - Disc Golf)

(Justin - Disc Golf)
 
In this episode, I had the honour to have Justin as my guest. He shared with me his interest in disc golf as his hobby.
 
Why limit yourself to traditional golf when you can try new ways to get a hole in one? With that being said Justin enjoys to play golf with a disc, hence the name of disc golf. The cool part about this sport/ hobby is that you can pretty much play it anywhere outside, heck you can even play it indoors if you want to break a few things. Unlike traditional golf, the wind plays a more significant role on the movement of the disc so it's important to find the right time to throw or else you might lose your disc and find someone else while you’re searching for your own disc.

Ep.124 The Two-Dimensional Vividness (Dustin - Video Game Sprite / Pixel Art)

(Dustin - Video Game Sprite / Pixel Art)
 
In this episode, I had the honour to have Dustin as my guest. He shared with me his interest in video game sprite and pixel art as his hobby.
 
Remember that Italian plumber that jumps on turtles and absorbs the power of stars? Well he had a simple pixel beginning and Dustin enjoys video games that use pixel art. Dustin enjoys improving the look of pixel art to give it a new or enhanced look and energy. Now this isn't just restricted to simply characters, it also includes world maps. Anything can be made into pixel art, it’s up to you and your imagination to see what you create.

Ep.123 What Is Your Next Target? (Dustin - Archery)

Dustin Became homeless and had to sell his bow and many other things to feed himself and stay at least one night in a hotel. If you want to help out Dustin, you can check out a Go Fund Me page I made for him or you can also donate directly to him if you want to help out:

(Dustin - Archery)
 
In this episode, I had the honour to have Dustin as my guest. He shared with me his interest in archery as his hobby.
 
Archery has allowed Dustin to connect to his routes and learn more about his ancestor. He mentions that in combat bow arrows can do something that guns can’t do. Do you know what that is? Arrows can curve  and hit targets behind other objects, unless you’re from the movie Wanted, I’m pretty sure guns can’t do that . We can’t all be Robin Hood, Katniss Everdeen, Hawkeye, Legolas or Cupid. But if you keep practicing, you can get pretty close.

Ep.122 Snap, Crackle And You Can Leave Out The Pop (Justin - Whip Cracking)

(Justin - Whip Cracking)
 
In this episode, I had the honour to have Justin as my guest. He shared with me his interest in whip cracking as his hobby.
 
Do you hear that? That’s the sound to the sound barrier being broken by a whip. Physics plays an interesting role with a whip and its even powerful enough to snap a can of pop in half. Justin enjoys to play around with the whip, he doesn’t simply fling his arm to crack the whip, he tries to do more and more complexe and cool tricks. He can crack whips with 2 hands, flip them, role it off his neck. He has a lot of tricks up his sleeves, well in this case he has those tricks in his hands. Go check out this Instagram to see all the awesome things he tried with whips.

Ep.121 This Is More Than A Simple Poke (Spencer - Fencing)

(Spencer - Fencing)
 
In this episode, I had the honour to have Spencer as my guest. He shared with me his interest in fencing as his hobby.
 
I challenge you to a duel. I’m almost certain that I would lose that duel but I will try my best to use a good poker face behind the mask to fool you.  The one person who is always up for a challenge/ duel is Spencer the Fencer. Spencer enjoys using the saber sword when it comes to fencing. If you don’t know what saber is, then I guess you’ll have to listen to this episode. That is honestly the best way to learn more and I’m sure you want to hear Spencer talk about me rather than me.

Ep.120 Let It Fly To Catch What Swims (Katie - Fly Fishing)

(Katie - Fly Fishing)
 
In this episode, I had the honour to have Katie as my guest. She shared with me her interest in fly fishing as her hobby.
 
The great thing about fishing is that you get to relax and enjoy your environment around you while trying to catch a fish. It’s unfortunate when you don’t catch one but mother nature is always down to give you some company. For Katie, she prefers to do fly fishing because it requires a different set of skills compared to spin fishing. If you enjoy spin fishing, why not try fly fishing?

Ep.119 Why Not Live In The Past? (Nichelle - Medieval Recreation)

(Nichelle - Medieval Recreation)
 
In this episode, I had the honour to have Nichelle as my guest. She shared with me her interest in medieval recreation as her hobby.
 
Recreation of a history allows you to better understand the way of life of people from different time periods. For Nichelle, medieval age is her favourite because she enjoys meeting with her friends and try to live the way people back then lived. Why buy a metal spoon at Walmart, when you can make it? Why buy outfits in a store when you can make it? The easy answer is that buying it is easier but when you make it you get to customize it any way you want and you created something. Nichelle and her group can almost recreate anything from the medieval age, their imagination is their only limit.

(Laurie - Learning About History)
 
In this episode, I had the honour to have Laurie as my guest. He shared with me his interest in learning about history as his hobby.
 
We all have history, whether you like it or not. You reading this right now is part of your history. It might not be significant but it happened in your life. Laurie has a passion to learn about the history around the world and also his own history. He mentioned that talking about history is a wonderful tool to connect people together from various generations because we all have something to offer to someone’s knowledge. Furthermore, he mentioned that its also important to learn the history of those who are not famous because it helps us grow as a society and more importantly as humans.

Ep.117 Keep Your Tie, I Prefer My Bow (Selina - Violinist)

(Selina - Violinist)
 
In this episode, I had the honour to have Selina as my guest. She shared with me her interest in being a violinist as her hobby.
 
Instruments have the ability to create a mood for any kind of situation. Happy moment? Instruments have a sound for that! Sad moment? Instruments have a sound for that! Neutral moment? Of course, there are instruments that have a sound for that! I don't know about you but out of all the instruments, the violin is for sure my favorite, and Selina was generous enough to share why she enjoys playing the violin. The cool part is that she enjoys doing songs that don't have originally a violin in them and she adds her own personality with it.

(Emmy - Researching Codes And Symbols)
 
In this episode, I had the honour to have Emmy as my guest. She shared with me her interest in researching codes and symbols as her hobby.
 
Codes and symbols can be found all around us, it's up to you to find them. Emmy enjoys finding meaning in various codes and symbols from the past and the present. At a young age, Emmy even ended up creating her own symbol to define her life and who she is as a person. She mentioned that symbols can come in all different styles, it can be written, drawn, or it can even be a gesture that people do. Learning more about codes and symbols has set a pleasant challenges for Emmy because every single one of them was create with a personal purpose and finding out the reason feeds her curiosity.

(Iszi - Japanese Jujutsu)
 
In this episode, I had the honour to have Iszi as my guest. She shared with me her interest in Japanese Jujutsu as her hobby.
 
Quick! Off the top of your head, what is the difference between Japanese Jujutsu and Brazilian Jujutsu. Don’t know the answer, well I guess you will have to listen to this episode where Iski goes into great detail to explain the differences and how Japanese Jujutsu played a significant role in her life. She also mentions in the episode that when it comes to protecting yourself there’s no such thing as a cheap shot. Use whatever you have to protect yourself. It’s also important to understand to never underestimate your opponent, they might be hiding a special technique that might throw you off (literally and metaphorically).

(Zanah - Microbudget Film Maker)
 
In this episode, I had the honour to have Zanah as my guest. She shared with me her interest in microbudget filmmaking as her hobby.
You always hear about these large companies creating the next blockbuster movies but in reality money does not determine a great movie story. Zanah has always found a way to make best with what she has and bring to life vivid stories that will pull at your heart strings.

(McKenzie - Metal Detecting)
 
In this episode, I had the honour to have McKenzie as my guest. She shared with me her interest in metal detecting as her hobby.
 
Metal detecting has multiple benefits for yourself and the environment around you. First of all when you go metal detecting, you can find some pretty cool items that may have some historic significance. Secondly you’re helping clean up the environment from littering. From those two points of view it's a win-win situation. Why not give it a try, I’m sure you’ll find some interesting within 50 meters from where you live. Unless you live in the middle of the ocean, you might have to go a little deep to find something cool.

Ep.112 Literally Bringing Down The Hammer (Stephen - Blacksmithing)

(Stephen - Blacksmithing)
 
In this episode, I had the honour to have Stephen as my guest. He shared with me his interest in blacksmithing as his  hobby.
 
Iron man from the Marvel comics created his first suit of armour through the process of blacksmithing. In other words, blacksmithing is an old practice but is still pretty cool to do in mordern times and in Iron Man's case, it saved his life and made it much better. For Stephen case, being a black smith indeed made his life better because he now has the ability to forge awesome tools and knives that will last a very long time. Stephen mentioned that some of his most interesting work started off with a general idea and then from there it just became something better than what he had planed.
