Well look at you... or rather,look at what was written by and about you.
I'm sure your "last words" have made you proud. I take back my betweeded curmudgeon comment.

This issue has a very enjoyable piece on Gore Vidal, which I definitely would not mind you scanning for the good of all

Love your last word. It is indeed about the quality.

(And yes, the fake ones do feel weird. But that makes me remember an ironic line from L.A. Story. Steve Martin and Sarah Jessica Parker are 'getting on with things' and he reaches down to touch her breast and immediately has a quizzical look on his face. He says, "Your breasts feel weird." Her reply: "Oh, that's because they're real.")

Oh thanks Tin Tin, now I will forever associate Bill's Khakis with Jenna Jamison.

Ha ha ha. Holy shit.

Dallas said...

in a world of preps and trads, what is a mod to do?

p.s. - i smell a movie/book deal in the works.

Oyster Guy said...

Tintin, you've been getting a bit of press here and there but I would really like to know more about your thoughts on that. What are the people like who interview you? Are they real fans or just looking for some colour in their pieces? Do they get it? Do they want it? Are they starting to think you just might be the Lewis Lapham of menswear. I know I'm thinking that.

Gregorius Mercator said...

Such a good analogy - so true.

TRAWETS NILTGEOV said...

Also: When I first glanced at the cover, I thought it said - James Franco: Hollywood's Unstoppable Tool. I know, not funny.

Dallas said...

^^ agree. Franco is a dink

tintin said...

bro- Do Mormons allow breast surgery?

Barima- Thanks for stopping by. Like your blog. I read it too. It's a great piece with some amazing insight. GQ's probably gonna sue me for scanning this.

Alice - Sometimes bigger ain't better.

unclelooney - Jenna who?

DMW- It's already happening but has more to do with my recent pork obsession.

Stew- Holy to be sure.

Dallas- You have Paul Weller.

Oyster- They come in a range of sizes and flavors. Some are very passionate and know their stuff. Others have no passion and only want quotes to support their story. Still others are so god damned big they'd kick my ass if I said anything. Lewis Lapham? Don't know him. Does he get paid to write? I'd love that.

Gregorius- And it don't cost nuthin'.

Stew- You gotta thing for Franco? Maybe we could get Tony to kick his ass.

those tricks said...

nice shout out tin-tin!
and that james franco..so delish.

Dallas said...

the who in the 60s > paul weller

Brohammas said...

Tintin,
There is no disciplinary regukation for getting them... there is disciplinary regulations against grabbing them.

Any of those writers give you trouble I got your back... unless they want to pay me to write then I'm switching teams!

Brian E. said...

You're the man now, dog!

Love the press Tin Tin!

Any chance you make it up for the Top Shelf Flea Market?

T said...

Good Christ. Get on with your bad trad self.

~Tessa~Scoffs said...

That's hot.

Richard M said...

Excellent, sir!

Really nice interview with many quotes. That last one: only Tintin can beautifully pull off a non-sequitur like that in the same sentence and have it make sense.

TRVS said...

Bravo! I feel like a proud parent...

TRAWETS NILTGEOV said...

I do have a thing for Franco. It's complicated, of course

Rather than have Tony kick his ass, we should just have him drink him to death ala Karen Allen in Raiders.
