"John Lennon really did kind of write the rule book. As a tunesmith, as an irritant, as a willing taker of pratfalls. He was in the queue for the mud pies -- all of that stuff that I do, I got from his little red book."

-- Bono

I became a U2 fan before I knew what an actual album was. An errant mind led me to discover "With or Without You" and The Joshua Tree. Growing up in a tiny town in northeastern Montana, my U2 fandom existed in virtual isolation until the Internet era allowed me to stream video from the official website pre-ATYCLB. I bought the band's CDs in whatever order I could get my hands on them without any knowledge of the larger U2 or music community's perceptions of each work.

I found in 2007, whiling away my time at a college job, and am now honored to be included in the ranks of the site's many passionate contributors.

The newest facets of my devotion to U2 include that of hobbyist, as I hunt down interesting vinyl iterations of their music, and teacher, as I indoctrinate the next generation (my three young children) about who's got the job: "What job? The best band in the world job."
