My Tintin Posters
My order came in. I bought a few Tintin posters from AllPosters.com people, just like the ones you see above. Well, the actual ones are a lot larger. Now all I need is a few inexpensive frames from Ikea and my bedroom will look like a 12 year old's den. I recently read another writer refer to my generation as the "Tintin Generation". It may actually be a very appropriate term, except that Tintin wasn't as popular with girls and his fan base includes more males than females. Then again, I may be wrong. You can get your own posters and join my generation by clicking on the images above or searching all their posters below:

Now I'm jealous. I have some other ones, and tons of smaller post card size ones but these are very cool. Did you get the 2004 tintin calendar? it's beautiful. You can get them at Champlain bookstore in queen steet.
hey girls loved tin tin too you know. I wrote about this a while back actually (http://irantranslated.blog-city.com/read/399498.htm). my cousins (girl cousins) also loved him and we were always bargaining for trades. To this day I still have an extra skip in my walk if I am wearing one of my cherished tin tin t-shirts. Just bought one for my brother for his birthday (he is 31) and just got one for my own birthday (i am not 31). i suppose, 12 year old boys in iran back then didn't have too many girls around them unless they had relatives so i guess its fair that you might assume that ... and oh, another point, my mom was the one who got all our tin tins for us. I guess she was the ultimate "girl" fan, she read them all.
If only bargeboo was a little older and sinlge!!! I like the person that resides in between the lines above.
indeed, I am a big fan! you know they call us generation X or I don't know what! I'd rather be called Tin Tin generation:)
i don't think 12-year-olds have dens.
ali: um ... pardon?!
where did THAT come from? thank you i guess? :)
Every Boy Scout has a den and a den mother, God love them. Also, den, which literally means a place that bears hibernate, is used as a synomym in the US for living room, family room, TV room, play room, kids room even rec(reational)room, lately I've been hearing the term "media room" which sounds more important, but is really the same shabby, comfortable place to relax informally. I think it is/was more used in the Midwest, where houses have big basements and the winters are wicked cold.
Bargeboo - I wouldn't read into it too much. It was just my pure on the fly observation. After THAT silly remark I visited your blog and saw how prefessional you work.
Try ebay and if you are lucky you can buy the old Persian translated Tintins for $10.
