Bless them. I was looking forward to the closing ceremony and wondered how N&C would make their entrance. A chance look at The Sun website this morning blew it. But, it's nice to see PSB in action and perform to a worldwide audience.

That's why I think the EMI compaign is ok because they are British pop legends that's why they are at the closing ceremony of the Olympics.

The two-hour spectacular will see the Pet Shop Boys scoot across the stage on winged rickshaws.

I could have bough a ticket yesterday for £150!

I'm going to keep trying.
What's for supper?

Chariots....ideally for entering the stadium with Winner stomping in the background ('of course it's all on tape'), Usain Bolt runnning past them....

The picture of Neil & Chris being ferried on those trikes really deserves a caption competition - I just can't think of anything witty at this moment...Drico, it's over to you...

How about Chris to Neil:

"Hey Neil, remember when we first signed to EMI and were imperial, they used to provide a Limosine, now we let them choose the lead singles and get carted around like this...What happened ?"

Chris:
Alright, I know we are on a tight budget now, but where is my keyboard?

Neil:
Ooops, sorry, I negotiated an exception for your new hat instead, where do you have it? Anyway, now I have to sing...
