I have about 6 external hard drives I use to back all my important stuff on. Although thinking about it a fire would probably ruin all of those! Might hide one in the car or something!

Just shows that nothing is truly safe!
I take one to work and stick it in the desk drawer.

Nothing in Chicago, but I'm not going to start expecting it until the end of this week. Then I'll start to get impatient! :)

Re: PSB EDINBURGH MUSICAL SHOW

Unbelievable. Plans have changed but we were planning on going to the UK for summer vacation and would have been in Edinburgh the week BEFORE this show and back home in the US during it's run. I would have been pissed. We actually had tickets to see Closer To Heaven but the run was canceled shortly ...

Re: A Hello from Chicago

Welcome to the party! You've discovered them at a good time as the majority of their back catalogue is being reissues in expanded editions called Further Listening.

Be sure to lose yourself browsing https://www.psb-catalogue.com/ :D

Re: Reissues project

Wait... there were art prints available in the UK?! Son of a... I was in England for the last two weeks. We were trying to figure out if we'd be able to buy the CDs while we were over there but when it was looking rough I decided to just order them from Amazon back home. So annoyed... I would have l...

Re: 2017: "New Batch" of reissued & remastered albums w/ Further Listening albums

The John Peel tracks and Believe/Song for Guy pushes me towards non-believing. Believe/Song for Guy was performed on a tv show and I'm not aware of a studio demo of this. It seems unlikely they'd include a song like this, played live, sourced from a tv live performance for a set like this. Same with...

Trailer here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DYaq2sWTWAA Now, I don't know if there will be any discussion on her designs for PSB, but the trailer does appear to have imagery ...

Re: The Super Tour

I love Burn but I'm afraid I found it hard to enjoy because I couldn't hear the performance because of the people behind me.

I'm really hoping a pro shot video of the concert will show up on youtube or somewhere because I would love to be able to relive the show without distraction.

Re: The Super Tour

Saw them last night in Chicago with my family. Experience was marred by a group of people immediately behind us who talked through much of the first half of the concert. Like, conversation. They weren't singing along, just chatting. The guys next to us were getting really annoyed to the point where ...

Re: What was your first experience/remember with Pet Shop Boys

We didn't have cable back in the day so I watched a show called Friday Night Videos on the local independent station. There was also a Saturday morning music video show. I remember watching Opportunities and liking the song, but not enough to go buy it. My first PSB record was the 12" for It's a Sin...

Re: Literally 42

Unsure if I'm due an issue or not from my fanclub subscription. Decided to check the site any maybe order one anyway... sold out. Dammit. This going to be the way, isn't it. You need to be on top of it otherwise you'll miss out.

Re: "Super tour" live dates

I'm really confused. I thought tickets were going on PreSale Thursday (in the US; Chicago specifically). I just saw a tweet that said pre-sale is "tomorrow" (which is Thursday) but I instantly thought of the UK time difference and thought it was a post from yesterday. I panicked and jumped on Ticket...
