    My dad got his master's in history. Don't know what he specialized in, but from the sheer number of books and documentaries I saw as a kid, I'm assuming something military, lol. So, history has always been fascinating for me. Do you have a particular time period or area you prefer to study?

    Yeah I prefer the more comic bookie type films that don't shy away from the source material. Thank god for the creation of the MCU. I wish I could say the same for DC but they still have a lot of ways to be on the same page with what Marvel has been bringing every year since 2008.

    I was a bit vague! :D

    I've never flown a plane, or anything to that level. But my family has always been rooted in aviation, from my great grandfather down, so an interest in general aviation was unavoidable!

    Movies - Horror movies mainly, from the old school up to modern. Prefer a horror film with intelligenced, but will take most things. Like thrillers, historical films also, and obviously comedies. I love a good documentary me :)

    Soccer/Football - Southampton FC

    Ice Hockey - Pittsburgh Penguins

    Been guitaring and writing songs for 16 years now, and have always enjoyed the freedom it brings!

    Music - Soul and Motown!

    Photography - My passion that I inherited from my Dad. I'm in a stage where I'm experimenting with different styles, but I mostly do architectural, urban, street, and portraiture photography. Check out my Instagram for more! (I have a few photo's from SW Celebration on there too).

    Football [Soccer] - I have a knee injury at the moment that I got during a game of football but I normally play twice a week. I support Manchester City FC.

    London - One of my favourite pass times is actually exploring my City. I adore London and I never get bored of it - there's always something different and new (and sometimes incredibly old!). If you've never been, you should go.

    Travelling - I love travelling and experiencing other places/cultures. This year I've been fortunate enough to go to California, Florida, and Stockholm, Sweden. I'm also going to Cornwall (a beautiful county in the South West of England) later this month for some camping and surfing. Favourite places: Italy and California hold a special place in my heart.

    Food - Food is amazing. I really think it's hard to beat Indian food... I could eat it every day. I also adore traditional British food. Again, a trip to London and you can experience every type of food in the world.

    Films - Star Wars - nuff' said. I'm going to watch TFA for the 1,000th time tonight ;). I love 80's John Hughes films. To name a few other favourites; A Beautiful Mind, Schindler's List, Superbad, Napolean Dynamite, 500 Days of Summer, Shawshank Redemption, Saving Private Ryan, A Good Year, etc. I could go on but those were the first that came to mind. I also want to start making my own short films.

    TV Series/Video Games - Friends, The Big Bang Theory, The IT Crowd, Blackadder, Fawlty Towers, Only Fools And Horses, Sherlock, etc. Games: SW Battlefront, Minecraft, Pokémon Go! - I used to be a bigger gamer back in the day. Although I don't seem to have much time for these things as I used to.

    Star Wars Comics - I also collect the new Marvel Canon SW Comics. I have almost every issue apart from the whole Darth Vader series. I also used to collect some series/arcs from the Dark Horse era.

    Especially on the last movie - Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice - I felt like they cramped all the story together to give a introduction to the Justice Leagure, rather than introduce first the characters and then put them all together - as in Avengers.

    Having said that, I'm really looking forward to watch Suicide Squad :D

    What am I into ?

    Alchemy : Great art to understand living things, nature and many mystic books.

    Semiology, Symbolism, Mythology : See above.

    Mysticism : Though I'm absolutely not in religion things. I made a mystical experiment and it's hard pretending it didn't happen.

    Video Games : No link with the things above :D

    Curiosity : I try to learn many things a day.

    Languages : I tried to learn many some are easy ( english :D ) some are not ( Hungarian ).

    Star Wars : More in a mystical way than a family saga. Many symbolic in Star Wars and I like that.

    Sports : But less and less every year. I do like NFL though and I'm a Bengals fan ( yes, it's not the easy way :D ).

    Culture : I'm interested with every culture in the world. It helps understanding people and their mythology.

    Story Telling : Imagination is great.

    Back before the movies, I’ve read the LotR about every other year for quite a time and all the other Tolkien stuff (Silmarillion, …). I like the movies a lot, just the reading interest declined afterwards for whatever reasons.

    I’m interested in HEMA, historical European martial arts and was practicing sword fighting with medieval long-swords myself until my trainer died of skin cancer and there was no other group left in my vicinity.

    Also interested in (European) medieval and ancient world history, especially warfare.

    Then lacking the time and participants, classic pen & paper roleplaying games are still a topic for me. I would love to start a group with the new Fantasy Flight Games system for Star Wars. Great stuff indeed! So for the meantime, board games are also an option. I got quite a collection of the old West End Games Star Wars, World of Darkness, Rolemaster/Middle earth, Harnmaster, Traveler, Cthulhu, some AD&D (the original one from beginning of the 80’s), and some more quaint products.

    Some great TV shows (ROME, GoT, Band of Brothers, Battlestar Galactica (the new one), Sherlock, Grimm, …) and tons of movies from all kinds of genres (Hellboy, Good Fellas, Master & Commander, the Blood-and-Ice-Cream-Trilogy, those directed by Clint Eastwood, Guy Ritchie or Tarantino, Harry Potter, the Marvel Universe, …).

    Reading: mostly historical fiction e.g. like from Simon Scarrow or Bernard Cornwell and (modern) fantasy/horror like the ones from Jim Butcher, Andrezej Sapkowski and Sergej Lukianenko. The days of interest for Alexanders Kent Bolitho series lies in the past I guess.

    The most hours in computer gaming had been spend on The Witcher and Titans Quest (multiplayer) during the last years.

    One of my favorite music comes from Big Country and Bruce Springsteen.

    Add photography and cooking, then you have it.

    And of course everything around Star Wars, meanwhile passing on the torch for this to my 3 year old son.
