Ep.113 Shhh! I’m Trying To Listen To The Beep (McKenzie - Metal Detecting)

(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.

Ep.111 Simple Block, Massive Creation (Shtim -Minecraft World Builder)

(Shtim -Minecraft World Builder)
 
In this episode, I had the honour to have Shtim as my guest. He shared with me his interest in Minecraft world building as his hobby.
 
What if I told you that there's a game, simple in concept but has the limitless possibility for wonderful creations? You're in luck because that game is Minecraft. But here's the twist, its not simply Minecraft... its building a functional society in Minecraft to represent anything you want. Shtim plays in a Minecraft server that does its best to recreate architectural structures from a specific time period. What is even cooler is that this world works like a normal society. you have people with jobs to create news papers, you can go to prison for committing a crime, you can even have organized protests if you do not agree with a specific law or point of view. They can pretty much do anything in this society. However, there has been one big challenge where they have yet be able to find a perfect answer. Listen to the episode to find out what it is. Maybe you might have a solution that works.

Ep.110 A Treat For The Eyes And Nose (Kim - Floral Art)

(Kim - Floral Art)
 
In this episode, I had the honour to have Kim as my guest. She shared with me her interest in floral art as her hobby.
 
Living art can create beautiful masterpieces that doesn't only look good for the eyes, but also might smell very pleasant. Kim has transformed her floral art over the years to give that little Kim magical touch. She found interesting ways to include random items to the floral art the enhance the presentation of her work. She also gave a little tip that can be pretty helpful for those who might be interested in picking up this hobby. She said that dome flowers have shorter stems and a cool trick to make it longer while still feeding the flower, is to remove the stem and replace it with a wooden toothpick. The wooden tooth pick would absorb the water and carry it to the flower. For Kim, where there's a will there a way.

Anime dubbing has existed for multiple decades but there's a new kid on the block that brings fictional characters to life, that new kid is manga dubbing. June has a deep passion to add an audio world to still images. Now is much more than just slapping a voice over some words, June takes the time to organize an awesome cast that really pulls you into the story and even adds music and sounds effects. June suggested that if you enjoy mangas, you should give voice acting a try because all voices have the potential to be bring more life to any story. Since I have a deeper voice I'm going to practice a big beast.

Ep.103 Let The Melody Take You (Jackson - Producer/Singer)

(Jackson - Producer/Singer)
 
In this episode, I had the honour to have Jackson as my guest. He shared with me his interest in being producer/singer as his hobby.
 
Jackson grew up in a family that always enjoyed music whether creating it or teaching it which might have played a role in Jackson's interest in in becoming a producer and singer. A very important thing Jackson mentioned was that it doesn't matter which program you use, as long as you learn how to use it because the simplest program can make some of the best instrumentals. You don't have to be perfect when you start off, creating music is all about trial and error and trying to find the right groove that works for you.

In this episode, I had the honour to have McCollonough as my guest. She shared with me her interest in painting envelopes as her hobby.
 
We live in a time where you for sure get more emails than envelopes, so when ever you get an envelope in the mail you might get a little more excited (except when its bills, that's no fun by mail or email).  To make the experience even better Mccollonough decided to take it one step further to add her personal touch of painting the envelopes. There's something about getting a colourful envelope in the mail that makes you instantly feel more connected to it and pumped to open it. Throughout this episode you will get to learn why Mccollonough enjoys sending them to people from all walks of life.
