This hollowed out volcano is not going to decorate itself

I am trying to get my act together. I have an average sized apartment room wall. I want to use it to plan world domination! Well really the domination of my next few years of goals and tasks. Please give me cool or creative ideas for a way to have a huge display of multiple years of calendar, lists and reminders, and events and goals. The only catch is that I cannot repaint or damage the wall in a major way. Long-winded details inside.

I would love to be able to see a good 3 years worth of calendar, for full planning purposes. Also to gaze at the wall every so often and bellow a maniacal laugh when I see that I need to pick up my dry cleaning next week and look for restaurant coupons. My budget for this project is flexible if the idea is so awesome it just has to be done. All ideas welcome.
Giant piece of paper that I pin to the wall, and write on that? Affix a screen to the wall that I can pull down, point to like a general explaining a plan of attack and then roll up? Take dozens of pieces of 8x11 paper and tape them to the wall like Leonard in Memento? Buy an old giant flip chalkboard like the one Indiana Jones used to draw the Ark in Raiders?
I am a lowly flat dweller, so I have to take it with me when I move. I'm pretty crafty so I can do cutting and drawing, but I do like any specifics you have in mind in terms of tools, pencils, adhesives and that sort of thing. Any ideas? You will totally get consideration as a henchperson.
