so I have a brick wall in my room I wanna put a poster on. it's the regular small house brick, a chimney to be exact. I've used sticky tack and tape. both hold for a bit and let go after a couple weeks.
what would you use?

Would you be able to put some clear sealant over the brick at the spots where you would attach the poster? I would suggest brushing the brick first to remove any grit or dust. Once you have a non-porous surface, the sticky tack should hold.

You can also drill holes into the bricks and install concrete or drywall anchors. Mount a solid board of some sort using those, and stick your poster to the board.

Sand the area down under the poster so that it is nice and smooth.

More than a few 'ban-worthy' responses to that come to mind...

Have you tried any of the adhesive puttys that are out there? I think 3M makes the stuff I have seen before.
