I was only six when my U2 obsession began. My older sister and I started our day each morning with a heavy dose of MTV and one of the main videos in rotation was "Gloria" by a group of young Irishmen, set to conquer the world. We loved it, and began buying everything they released. In fact, we still do.
Today, I'm an adult with a real (PR/marketing) job and real bills to pay, but I don't let that get in the way of my habit. I collect and trade U2 swag, take U2-themed vacations and attend as many U2 concerts as the pocketbook will allow. Through births, deaths, boyfriends, schools, jobs and relocations, the music of U2 has been there for me.
Of course, I do find other ways to pass the time...I write screenplays, I write Tassoula's Movie Review Blog and I formerly co-hosted the Cinebanter movie podcast with my friend Michael (who is formerly known on this site as "Answer Guy").
So as you can see, my pop culture plate is always full.
