Re: Why do people hate Numb?

I object to the grammar, not the sentiment.

Re: PSB to play the Closing ceremony of the Olympics

Many thanks for the link. :mrgreen: The Pets were on at 4am Monday morning Hong Kong time, so that was never going to happen for me.

Re: Winner - full lyrics

Oh, I'm afraid to say that I don't care for Winner. It has a really cheesy X-Factor feel to it. I feel disappointed that the Pets have pandered to the whole Olympics thing. :(

I'm sad to say that I didn't like the clip at all. It's unbelievably cheesy. I hope I change my mind when I hear the full song.

Re: pet shop boys - invisible.

It's beautiful and uncommercial. It makes me think of Art of Noise.

I always heard more of a Summer/Moroder influence on their records rather than Bee Gees, at least until Very.
I think it is quite probable that the Pets actually knew Robin Gibb.

Re: Transparent appreciation thread

I have always loved Transparent. It feels like a guilty pleasure though, as I know how many posters dislike it.

Re: Twitter

I have always thought it a bit short-sighted that the Pets deleted their Twitter account, thereby allowing someone else to take the name. Why not just leave the account dormant? D'oh!

Thanks for sharing that. It's a very thoughtful piece. Philip Hoare wrote Catalogue with Chris Heath, I believe.
