View Full Version : What is your other artistic love?

Obviously everyone here loves photography. Do you have another artistic side? We know Marko has his stand up comedy (and shaving cats for some weird reason, but each their own), and Glenn has his martial arts.

Mine is cooking. Being from Louisiana, it's in our blood to just have food revolve around anything we do. I like experimenting, trying different types of food. I love going to the store, loading up on different meats and slow smoking them in my smoker. I can just sit all day watching Food Network, getting ideas of things to try and cook. I actually looked into culinary school 20+ years ago, but the $25,000 price tag kept me away.

Good thread Chris!

I'm also big into film, and I used to act back in the day. Gonna get back into acting again soon as well.

This is probably more in the realms of creative than artistic, but I do a bit of home brewing.

I don’t think most people will get this, but I really embrace the creative in my businesses. I own a couple of companies and am always trying to do something different and creative, whether it be with marketing campaigns, nuance in product design or thinking outside the box in business strategy.

I love music and am always listening to music or trying to discover something new. I play the guitar (although not so much lately), but no matter how hard I have tried unfortunately I just cant “get it” I can play the notes OK, but cannot translate that into something that I really like and feel. It is still a good relaxation though.

I also collect wine and I run (but there is nothing much creative about that other than finding excuses not to).

Maybe we can get AT’s smoked meats and my beer and have a great afternoon. Marko can tell jokes. I guess Iggy is in charge of security. Anyone else have anything to contribute?

I not much of a beer guy, I do love a good, cold draft of a micro brew. I'm a bourbon and scotch. Nothing better than 15 year old bourbon with a good steak.
