Re: That Crossover Moment.....

Loved 'It's a Sin' and bought Actually when I saw it had a free CD single of Always On my Mind. Though I hadn't heard their version yet, I always liked that song and was willing to give it a shot. Loved those two songs but the rest of the album was 'meh.' I bought Discography for some reason but I j...

Re: It Couldn’t Happen Here June 2020 Release Confirmed

Honestly, I probably wouldn't have even noticed that the music was slowed down. But I would agree that the speed of the songs in the film should match the commercial releases. It's highly unlikely there was a directorial decision to slow them down specifically for use in the film.

Re: It Couldn’t Happen Here June 2020 Release Confirmed

Got my copy today and had a quick look at the technical traits of the contents. All the DVD content is 25 fps. All the Blu-ray content is 24 fps (and that is precisely 24, not 23.976) [...] So, it is clear to me what needs to be done with all the content but Always on my mind : take the Blu-ray fil...

Re: It Couldn’t Happen Here June 2020 Release Confirmed

FWIW my copy arrived in Chicago today from BFI. Very well packaged.

Interesting discussion here. I'll have to compare this with my laserdisc copy.

Re: Battleship Potemkin - True, accurate sync

Thanks everyone for your kind words about my work on this. I strived to make it 'right'. I certainly don't blame N&C for releasing an edited version on CD. What they said in Literally is exactly right - it's a 9 minute track where five minutes of it is essentially the same four bars repeated over an...

Re: Fundamental Instrumental leaked

Nope. I've not found them either. I think someone posted a link that got taken down pretty quickly as it breaks forum rules and some people happened to be online at the right time.

Re: CD + Graphics

Information Society's first album was CD+G. Yeah, it was very low quality graphics, like a slide show, that played still graphics while you were listening to the CD. I remember I had to use a Sega Genesis with Mega CD(?) to view these.

No PSB discs were released using this format.

Re: New Pet Shop Order Boys

^^ I was able to get decent seats for a change but I kept the seat selection page open while working on some work stuff. It was surprising and annoying seeing BETTER seats come up in premium sections at the same price I paid for my section 2 seats. I would have been better off just sitting and watch...

Re: New Pet Shop Order Boys

Mixed feelings. - Never been a big fan of New Order. Tried but I just couldn't get into them but I look forward to heard BLT and a few others live. - My last PSB show had me sitting next to two complete assholes who wouldn't stop talking so I was planning on springing for the Meet and Greet just so ...

Re: Exclusive 7“ in German „Musikexpress“ magazine

Mine arrived in Chicago. Could have been better packaged, but also could have fared much much worse! No problem separating the sleeve from the magazine. Mine was attached with that rubbery glue that's easy to peel off without damaging paper. It sounds like not everyone had that. Mine also arrived in...

Re: Dreamland on A List BBC Radio 2 and Record of the week

According to comparemyradio.com, Dreamland has been played on BBC2 6 times. http://comparemyradio.com/tracks/Pet_Shop_Boys/Dreamland_(feat._Years_%2526_Years) It would be nice if it were more, but I'm just saying it's more than 2. :) We're over analyzing again here. The single was released to promot...

Re: Being signed out every day

^^^ I think that's it! My bookmark was for http as well.

I just closed the browser, clicked my bookmark and was prompted to sign in. I opened a new tab and pasted the https address and I went straight in.

Good catch! Thanks!
