New poster intro

Hi all!

First post here. I discovered the board a few weeks ago while I was browsing about...

I'm a 30 year old male in central Vermont who works in the printing industry. I am married since this past August to a wonderful girl who I've been with for several years.

I love music of all kinds, I'm into gaming as well as collecting the toys of my youth (Transformers and Robotech Macross), either getting the cool ones I never could when I was a kid or re-getting the ones I did have that got lost or broken along the way.

I actually discovered U2 fairly late. About 4 or 5 years ago in my mid-20s. I hadn't been greatly into music (I liked it but it wasn't a big part of my life) before but was starting to get more and more interested in it.

As I was browsing new CDs I happened upon the Joshua Tree and as I recognized a few of the tracks I decided to pick it up.

Instantly fell in love, not just with the 'obvious' tracks that everyone's heard on the radio 1000 times, but the entire album, start to finish.

From there I started picking up a few of the others. I bought War and Achtung Baby... Both very different but I found a lot to love on both of them. I eventually ended up with all of their albums in my collection.

Here's where it got fun. During the time I was discovering, a co-worker of mine (who I no longer work with but we correspond occasionally and are planning to make a trip together for the new tour when it happens) noticed that I was discovering U2 and really getting into them. He loaned me a few bootlegs of the Popmart tour.

That really did it. I began devouring those and started building up a small collection of my own.

By the time ATYCLB came out I was a total addict... I saw two shows on that tour (both in Montreal, once on each leg, and we got into the heart for the second one in October of 2001) and have bootleg recordings of both of the shows that I saw...

Anyway... nuff said for now...
