i have a framed popmart poster hanging opposite the mirror in my bathroom, so it's always behind me when i look at my reflection.
yeah. dorkdom.

plus three in my bedroom. joshua tree, an elevation promo, and one from the vertigo tour. mmmm yes. when i go off to college in the fall, the posters are coming with me. my roommate might hate me for it if she's not a U2 fan, but she'll learn

Aaah, posters! I found mine recently, all rolled up at my parents house - 2 October era, one JT, one ATYCLB promo, plus I just found my U2 boxes - ticket stubs, clippings, music mags, papers and all the photos I've taken at concerts. It was like finding an old friend.

Don't know if I can frame my posters, they're pretty beat up from Blu-tac and tape. When I move into my next place

I'm 16 and have TONS of posters on my walls, which I never used to do...I think I went through a sort of 'grown up' phase and suddenly realised I'm young and RELAXED. Now my wall's plastered with posters of U2, Radiohead, Polysics [signed ], the Floyd, Zeppelin...loads.

But I think I'm still in that stage where I think "I'M NEVER GONNA GROW UP! I'M GONNA LISTEN TO LOUD MUSIC ALL MY LIFE AND HAVE POSTERS ON THE WALL!!!" then I'll wonder what the hell happened when I marry and have posters banned from my bedroom!!!

Then you get a study or a room of your own, and put all your posters up in there. That's my plan!

Need a house first, though. Or a husband with a house.

I have a framed photo of Bono that my friend took on a trip to Ireland right next to photos of my family, friends, and my late cat, Dickens.

I'm only 16 so my room is plastered with posters, not too many U2 ones yet but I plan on buying a bunch at used CD place downtown.

..so you mean that someday I'll lose the young fan in me

to quote Luke Skywalker "NOOOOOO"

I know framing came be $$$...
Even with my discount, the shop I use to work at is still expensive. But with some modifications to a good quality pre-fab frame, posters and memorobilia can be protected.
1.Metal and wood, better than plastic.
2.Dump the frames backing board and buy acid free board at an art supply house.
3.Use photo glue/acid free for collages of pics and such.
It can make a $80-85 frame job into $25-40.
Hope this helps some.

In the 90's when I was just getting into the band, my walls were covered in their posters.
Since getting past 20 tho, and taking down my Manchester UTD wallpaper......I felt obliged to do the same with the U2 stuff.

Tho I have 1 big framed photo of the boys on just one of the walls now, and many more smaller framed pics of them dotted about the the place too.

I still have my AB poster on the wall. Its been with me since AB came out and i am 29 now.

And anyway then its just a damn poster. Having a poster on your wall have nothing to do with age We all pick the " art " that we like. And if somebody think its not mature to have a band poster on your wall, then who gives a fuck about that ??, atleast nobody should care about it..

So young and old together !!! Go to your walls and put those posters up there and give age the middle finger
