Re: New EP in April: Agenda

National Review has an essay National Review is a synecdoche for the idiocy the song criticizes, not least because nothing in the track references Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Neil is unlikely to be following the nascent career of a freshman politician an ocean away. Critical thinking skills folks,...

Re: New EP in April: Agenda

The video for "On social media" has been posted on The Drudge Report with the headline "Pet Shop Boys Mock Social Media Users." Middle column half-way down. https://www.drudgereport.com Of course he ignores the three overtly political songs, none of which play to the spin he gives his readership. :)

Well the Freedom Caucus seem to think he's pretty great, so go have a chat to them.
No one's ever accused the Freedom Caucus of being Mensa candidates. :)

Retrofuturist refuted your post, simply by not being triggered by your low-quality bait.
Doubling down on your inability to refute my post just makes you look twice as silly.

Appearantly standards have been lowered to using stock photos now.
...which is perfectly in keeping with the theme of the EP. Woosh.

Re: New EP in April: Agenda

at first they would be like "wait to they hear this one!" and then get brutalized, and then same the next day, at some point they would be like "screw this". I imagine they are far more interested in the overwhelmingly positive media coverage than whether a handful of retrograde dimwits complain ab...

A quick test to see if someone is a snowflake is to see how they respond to obvious, common-sense statements like "All Lives Matter"
...or indeed "Black Lives Matter."

Trump and the MAGA crowd are the biggest snowflakes of them all.

Re: New EP in April: Agenda

Who else thinks a new T-shirt as below available at concerts and via their website would sell by the bucketload? For a group so famous for its graphic design sense, their t-shirt game has been curiously terrible over the years. I don't think #blessed would improve that track record. What would be g...

Re: New EP on April: Agenda

The new tracks are terrific. The 'banal' lyrics are surely intentional, considering the subjects. It's also interesting to see the forum reactionaries accuse Neil of becoming detached from reality in his old age. None of these songs express political perspectives that haven't been in Pet Shop Boys' ...
