Bands/Artists

I consider "obsessed", not in a negative way, but as spending a lot of time doing things that are related to that band/artist, for example, posting in communities, making layouts featuring the band, making/looking for icons/avatars, talking about the band a lot, recommending that people listen to the band, having song lyrics as journal names/MSN names/etc, making websites/fanlistings/other graphics, looking out for the band being mentioned on TV/magazines/newspapers, watching videos on youtube.

Basically, all or most of these. As if the band/artist is a hobby.

I would say most of my time online is Paramore-related, and previously it was McFly-related, but less so now (they're still one of my favourite bands though). A few years ago, I'd say I had a big thing for Good Charlotte (and Sum 41, but less so). I also get particularly attached to a band member e.g. Danny Jones & Dougie Poynter (McFly), Hayley Williams (Paramore), Billy Martin (Good Charlotte), Deryck Whibley (Sum 41).

edit: Sorry about the short character limit in q. 2, 4 & 5. I didn't think. Feel free to abbreviate or post them in the comments.
