Re: PSB vs Daft Punk

This is just my opinion -- and I'm terribly biased, of course -- but I've never understood how some (many?) critics' polls have rated Daft Punk higher than PSB (as they have indeed done at times) by virtue of ANY reckoning. Yes, I like some things Daft Punk have done, but they simply can't compare t...

Re: News: "Chris and Neil have been at their homes, writing new songs and working on music for a new theatre production"

They've long talked about expanding/modifying "A Man from the Future" into a more "theatrical" format, so I'm hoping that's the "theatrical production" they're working on.

Re: What do you PSB are going to do this year?

A single of some sort would be good. An album made through lockdown would be even better! :D Even more better would be a mini concert on Youtube. I would love a Disco 5 album consisting of remixes of Price trilogy tracks, but not necessarily remixed by Price and not necessarily the singles. Perhaps...

Don't kick yourself. I would know the answers to fewer than half of them myself if I hadn't done all the research necessary to come up with these questions!

Re: A New (and Temporary) Pet Shop Boys Trivia Game!

Thanks! I figured if I were going to create a trivia game, what would be the point of making an easy one? So I purposely came up with questions that would prove challenging. I just hope I didn't make it TOO challenging. :-)

A New (and Temporary) Pet Shop Boys Trivia Game!

Hey there! I'm not running a new poll, but I have posted on my "Commentary" website a temporary new feature that I hope you'll like: a Pet Shop Boys Trivia Game ! And it's a pretty tough one, if I do say so myself. It consists of 25 questions, most of the answers for which can NOT be found...

Re: Live performances of Chris in past and now.

His comment about not liking kissing as it’s too intimate is particularly surreal. I know I'm probably opening a can of worms with this, but that attitude about kissing being "too intimate" is actually a surprisingly common view among some gay men. There are many guys who regard kissing a...

Re: Annually 2020 + Free CD

Anyone in the States still waiting for theirs? Yes, I'm still waiting for mine. In fact, I received an email several days ago that, if I understood it correctly, indicated that it hadn't even shipped yet. Not happy. But I guess that's what I get for not shelling out for "expedited" delive...

Re: Interesting article about Dainton

The first guy in that photo (far left) looks as though he * may * be Peter Andreas (Chris's former longtime roommate, who died of AIDS-related illness in 1994. I could be wrong, however. (And I have no idea when that photo was taken.) What do you think? If it is him, it may be one of the best photos...
