-What would you tell someone about yourself if you wanted to impress them?

Chris:
-I´ve got a 12-inch plonker.

I've not seen the movie; but if Always on my mind video is a sneak preview of it, then it seems I am not missing much...
The CELL by Stephen King instantly hit number 1 in New York Times Bookseller Lists selling well over 200 thousand copies in three weeks. This affirms my opinion: People really need an occassional good horror read...

What the heck is beacon?

Well wait... I know what a beacon is but I don't think you can eat it for breakfast.

Great surreal film. As well as the 'cafe' scene, I like the 'Buying a car' too.

Yeah, apparently Chris is gay. I have Channel 4's "Top 10 Electropop Pioneers" recorded on video from around 2000 or 2001 & just before it was over Tom Watkins said, "I should imagine Pet Shop Boys, if it's some sort of obituary: "Two queens who done good".

Now, I know it is very wrong to refer to a gay person as a "queen", but that comment even made me ask myself, "Is Chris gay???"

I remember PSB being interviewed by Chris Evans on TFI Friday and Chris getting very cross when Evans questioned his sexuality.
Along the lines of "It's none of your business"
Which, I suppose is fair enough.

Chris Evans is such an idiot! You should never ask a person about their sexuality, even if it is in an interview. Obviously he has never heard that you should respect another person's privacy! :twisted:

I now realise that what I said in my last post may / may not have been entirely right for me to pass judgement on and for what it's worth I'm really sorry.

Even if Chris [Lowe] is gay or not, it doesn't matter! Just as long as he's got his health, happiness, is friendly and makes great music along with Neil, that's all I really care about.

Even though Neil is gay, I don't look at him any differently than how I see any other homosexual person or someone who is a heterosexual or bisexual. To me, both he and Chris are the same people they've always been. :D

Gee, it just never entered my mind that Chris would be gay. That has put me right off this band.

You shouldn't be put off liking them just because of their sexual preferences - everyone has a right to be different! Neil once said that he didn't believe that music was necessarily defined by a person's sexuality & I totally agree with him.

Just as long as they continue making great music, I will continue to be a big fan of theirs! :D

I'm truly shocked, I've just listened to Go West, The Boy.....,One In A Million, To Speak Is A Sin, Metamorphosis, there are subliminal messages/meanings in those songs. How could I have been so naive.
Still waiting to hear the Adam Freeland, Manhattan Clique and Axwell mixes of Integral.

How can they be gay, when they always look so miserable?
