wink Post your posters!

The other day, I felt like putting up some of my posters. The walls looked too bare so I went all out!







That lighthouse themed calendar that you see with the beer poster is the only thing I'd had up all year, so I dug out everything I own and found a place for it. Also, I'm not really religious but I like that last one of Krishna and Radha. I think the only ones I'm missing now are 2 mini ones (like 9x12 or something) of Floyd's Pulse album cover and Zep's Hermit pic from Stairway.

Go ahead, post your posters!

I was actually thinking about this when I put them all up. Is one ever too old for posters? I hadn't put them up in several months, in some cases several years... so I was wondering.

Awww Sicy, I like your room! I wish mine looked more like it



I took pictures of my room when I rearranged it a couple of weeks ago, they're kinda small, but you can see all my posters in them:


Giant U2 Elevation poster and Beatles A Hard Day's Night poster.


Linkin Park poster, and my U2 collage (I killed so many of my brother's issues of Rolling Stone to make that )


The collage again, and my LoveBugs poster, a bit cut off. It's a bunch of different coloured beetles, forming a heart and the word "LOVE" I didn't even realize that all was there until after I bought it and hung it up. I thought they were just random beetles!


The other end of the poster.

My Alice in Wonderland "We're All Mad Here" poster (I freaking love that thing) and my Peace sign poster, which I have had for at least 10 years, and has always been on my closet door, no matter where I live.


Harry Potter Also behind my fan there is a mirror, which is now hanging on the wall where that empty spot is.

I used to have a collage with a bunch of photos of different celebrities on it, but I never put it back up since I moved.

And I also have this vintage print in the hallway right outside my door:

Zoots, I used to have that Beatles poster! I loved it. No idea what happened to it.

I feel like I should have frames around my poster, to make my apartment feel a little less dorm room, a little more grown up, but jeez, it's so expensive to have stuff framed. And I got sick of having bare walls, so I threw a few of them up.

I have LOADS of posters rolled up and sitting in the back of my closet, some REM, U2, Beatles stuff and a few movie posters.

I'll take pictures and post them in a bit.

I don't have a digital camera on me, but I can just tell you guys which I currently have up.

My only non-movie related one is the famous Bono is Macphisto poster.

Other than that I have:

Mr. Blonde of "Reservoir Dogs"
"Punch-Drunk Love"
Original teaser poster for "There Will Be Blood"
"Lawrence of Arabia"
"Blade Runner: Director's Cut"
"Once Upon A Time In America"
"The Darjeeling Limited"
"Terminator 2"
"The Abyss"

Chass, nice posters! And nice use of links. Btw, you didn't comment on "alien king" there.

Cori, that's a great idea! Framing! Make it look less like a dorm room, true! I look forward to you putting your stuff up and taking pics.

Lance, I'd like to see your T2 one.

My gay alien buddy has been with me since the summer of 2001. I bought him at a festival and had quite a time getting his inflated self home in the backseat of my parents' Mustang with myself and my cousin. It was crowded, to say the least.

He aquired the black feather boa in 2004 when I bought it and discovered it was so cheaply made that all the feathers kept falling out, and so I'd never be able to wear it myself. The obvious solution was to give it to him.

The Burger King crown is a very recent addition. I used to have it on top of my bookshelf, but then realized how it should obviously be on my gay alien buddy's head.

He's a very good gay alien buddy, and I keep him near my bedroom door so he can guard me in case anyone wishes to do me harm




Is that enough commentary?

okay, holding place until I can fix the pictures so they're not all sideways.

This is the one actual piece of framed artwork I have in my apartment; it was a gift from a friend and looks really nice against the red wall in the apartment. Please excuse the glare, as I was just too lazy to close the blinds.



These three are in my bedroom:







And in my living room:







And finally, this is hanging on the back of my bedroom door. Which is always open, so I never have to see it. One of our printing vendors at work blew up this infamous picture to poster-size and gave it to me. I didn't have the heart to toss it, but I couldn't stand the thought of staring at such a large picture of myself all day, either:
