What happened to the young fan inside you?

Just one question about posters, cos I miss the ones I used to have in my bedroom at my folks'.

I used to have Achtung Baby and Rattle and Hum on both sides of my window and Pop right above my bed and Zoo tv pictures from the live show everywhere.

Now I'm 25, I'm in my apartment and I've a job, I can't have posters everywhere, I'm all grown up and I'm nostalgic.

Is anyone with me? Or do you still have Bono and Edge and Larry and Adam all over your bedroom walls?

PS: I recently found an old drawing of mine in my stuff and I decided to put it in my living room. It's a famous cartoon character holding the Zooropa CD and the line says: 'Just do like me, listen to U2! '. Just a wink to the young fan I used to be!

I'm 22 and I still have posters. Granted, I'm still in college but even when I graduate in June and move to LA I plan on keeping my posters up.

Good for you, Miggy.
By the way, I really liked what you said in the 'What song changed your life?' thread. I'm not what you could call a 'sensitive' man, but what you wrote there got tiny tears in my eyes and that's why I'm all nostalgic tonight ( in a good sense ).
Thank you.

Try 37 with two kids...no posters, just a kick ass album collection and a jar full of hundreds of ticket stubs...

I still have music posters on my walls, but now they are framed.

i just never got around to hanging them up. plus i can't seem to find most of them. i took them all down a few years ago to my paint my old bedroom and couldn't find them. i know my parents didn't throw them away, they just must be hidden in a closet. mayhaps once i will have to go over there and find them.

My walls used to be PLASTERED with posters and cut-out pictures. I'm 31 now, and while I still have a lot of various posters, I feel like I should be all "grown up" and frame them.

But geez - why is it so fricking expensive to frame stuff?

I'm 20 in a month and a half, and I'm in Uni - but I have no plans to take down my Joshua Tree poster, 'Album Covers' door poster, War flag or U2 calendar

Love 'em all, particulalry the flag!

I actually have 6 photo colages of U2 hanging on my bedroom walls ... I made these on white posterboard. I also have that huge Rattle-n-Hum poster in my computer room ... and I have one bookcase in the living room that's completely U2 ... it has my U2 books, VHS tapes, DVDs and CDs on it ... My family actually doesn't care that it's all there either ... Totally cool !!

ya, I still haven't been able to frame the Vertigo posters I got in Denver yet.

In fact, the only U2 poster I have on my wall right now is the cool Masse poster from the Elevation show in Dallas. I do have some handbills that I want to frame with ticket stubs and I may frame my programs. Someone posted a picture around here of their U2 programs individually framed and I thought it looked cool.

I do want to go back in time for an Unforgettable Fire promo poster one of these days. That would be cool behind some glass above my TVs!

Just a couple of weeks ago I purchased a poster from ebay. I intend to have the poster matted and framed under glass so it looks more adult. lol.

The young fan inside of me? haha. I'm 20. I still am that young fan. Well, I remember hearing "The Joshua Tree" when I was two. So, that's my young fan inside of me.

I had a few magazine pics of U2 up on my walls when I was a teenager but we moved around too much for me keep posters up. I probably threw away what I had before each move.

I'm now 38 and making up for it I have an entire wall in my office dedicated to U2 posters and pics. Nothing is framed but I do plan on doing that soon.

Umm, who says you can't have posters everywhere. Is it written in the adult handbook that loves and interests can't be fully appreciated and displayed? I am 24, back living at home after college, but when I finally do get my own place in a couple years, I will fully make it my own, U2 posters, album covers on walls, etc. Just be yourself and don't worry about what others will think - b/c if I ever visited you and saw your walls filled with music memorabilia, I'd think you were pretty unique!
