Need another clue?

This building is about a 3 1/2 hour drive south from the birthplace of the Vespa, was named after a pope (appropriately enough), and is part of the smallest independent state in the world both in terms of population and area.

Your first clues were fine, and I found it without too much trouble. Just don't have time right now to tag it and contribute a new one.

But you are a generous "chap" to give more clues.


(I've actually been there once, many years ago, before they did the restoration/clean up of all the art work inside. It was pretty amazing!)

Since we are in the neighborhood.....

You can tag this quickly with three words, one being this locale.

The other two are obvious from the "hints" in the pic itself.

I love the Book of the Dead alteration! Must have been those early trade routes with Italy at work.

As to the new post, it's from the ever delightful Shaun of the Dead!

I'm guessing there's a little more behind this tag, because "ties" and "neckties" isn't doing it.

Let's stay with the dead theme for a while. To find this, it really helps to know the name of the band. Then you can dance through GIS and find this one quickly.

Edit Monday - a Hint: Everything you need to find this image is embedded in the description above.

Well now, this one is tangentally dead...or undead.

The plan to make this internationally-beloved series of books into a movie died and resurrected so many times that it's hard to believe the rumor that a movie - better yet, a series of three movies - will finally happen! And VERY big names behind this one, as a director you all know has owned the rights for years.

Note: My hints aren't quite as specific this time. You should know who this character and his dog are as part of general "cultural literacy" ... though there is a tangental tie-in with the earlier Egyptian post. This series is European in origin and has been translated into over 50 languages. One time years ago my husband was walking down the street in Hollywood wearing a ______ t-shirt, and the uber-cool, pony-tailed, Euro chief valet at a trendy nightspot came bounding across the street towards my husband, calling out this character's name. He wanted to know where my husband got the shirt. At that time I was bringing all of these things back from trips to London and Paris and you couldn't get them in the U.S. Now, there are speciality stores - at least in San Francisco and NYC - that sell the licensed products in the U.S. And of course there's always eBay. Just wait until the movies hit.

Later the same day....
OK, here's another hint: A British band popular in the 80s was named after a pair of characters from this series.
I have all the books.  I have the t-shirts and watches.  Even magnets and models.  I'm a complete ______ nerd!

I have to admit a bit of cultural ignorance on this one. Though the characters looked familiar, it took quite a bit of searching to find Georges Remi's "The Adventures of Tintin."

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Adventures_of_Tintin

Now that I've read up on the subject, though, I really want to check out these books!

Unfortunately, Universal Studios turned down Steven Spielberg and Peter Jackson's proposal for a $130 million 3-D Tintin trilogy.

Oh rats! It was turned down? Dead again.

Very short-sighted on the part of the studio to turn it down, as it would be a huge draw outside the U.S.

Sorry it was a toughie. Do check out Hergé's (the pen name) books.

Oh, and LOVE what you did with the photo alteration with Snowy/Milou (depending on translation) in control!

I'll DQ myself on this one... since it happened in town here, just last week!

I don't think their guitarist has ever been matched either!!

Since we're still riding this one theme...he might even show up as a tag on here pretty soon.
