PostSubject: Scrapbooks and the like!   Wed Nov 19, 2008 5:17 am

Hey guys, wondering if anyone is or was like me and produced any really amazing scrapbooks or similar. When I was a kid in the 80's I use to blue tack or pin pictures to the walls of my bedroom, really tiny pictures at times and songwords etc. When we moved into a new house my mother forbid all those old smash hits posters and lyrics for madonna songs on the walls, she was okay for real posters so she got me a scrapbook. This scrapbook probably has about 50 or so pages and is absolutely huge and chock filled with tidbits, lyrics, a4 posters and pictures, newspaper clippings etc. So I basically stuck (with glue pens, acid free) everything into that and I still have it, it's long ago completed now but it's so funny looking back at all the gossip from those music magazines, eg: Madonna pregnant 1985 with Prince! etc. I even have a really old article from a UK mag about this hot young new singer from USA which is quite funny.

Of-course the scrapbook ran out of pages long ago so I decided to take a different approach in my teenage manner. Instead of cutting stuff out of magazines I bought (with my pocket money from mowing lawns which I'll never do again Razz ) those folders with 100 pages of clear sleeves. So I filled those up pretty fast and did that until 1994. Starting from 1983 with the face interview and her very first UK cover (From No1 with pinup and article, also Smash Hits with bold and agressive article) and ending with Bedtime stories (Q interview and cover). There was no way in hell I would collect all those mags and store them so I tore off the cover and tore the article and slipped 'em in those books. So now I have four 100 pg plastic books filled with lyrics, full page articles, mag covers, advertising new albums and singles from 1983 up to 1994. It really is fun flipping through each era and the best part is, none of 'em are glued to pages and they are practically like new.

So whatta you guys have? The scrapbook and folders are really special to me as they can never be replaced unlike a record or cd. I stopped collecting mags and articles until after Bedtime Stories cause, well turning into an adult!

Below is a snap from my 1983-1988 100 pg book Smile

I have nothing but memories, what with only being a fan since 2006.

Oh, tell me about it. Thats what I need: storage space. Every available orifice in my bedroom is overflowing with CDs, records, books, a poster and a matchbook. All my vinyl is in one storage crate on a shelf in my wardrobe: a good workout in itself when you want to take them out.
