Re: Pet Shop Boys remix Paul Weller

Merely pointing out his provincial scope of fame (and of course a slight teasing stab at the coming insignificance of Little England), not an international star just because the Gallaghers are his lookalikes. He's famous is more than one country - that's the definition of an international star. Not...

Re: Pet Shop Boys remix Paul Weller

Nope, he's completely in the realms of the anglocentrics. I know he's famous in that particular country but it doesn't mean that much anymore. You guys are ridiculous. He's Paul Weller - any reasonably educated music fan will know him, or The Jam, or at the very least some of his songs. A Town Call...

The vast majority of covers don't reinvent the song, you donut.

Re: PSB - Vaccination

Not very impressive that, when faced with the greatest challenge in its history, the EU is performing significantly worse than a corrupt, incompetent national government. I don't think anyone who isn't New Zealand should be casting stones here - especially the morons who thought Brexit was a bright...

Re: Russell T Davis: It's A Sin

You are totally missing the point. Film acting is not all about playing straight or gay. Straight actors have historically refused to play gay characters, and the history of film is littered with examples of gay text being turned into subtext, and gay subtext stamped out altogether. Philadelphia an...

Re: Russell T Davis: It's A Sin

Where did he say that his roles had to be about pursuing someone for sex? Most homophobes operate under the delusion that acknowledging homosexuality is inherently about sexual pursuit whereas heterosexual characters are only seen through a sexual lens if the character is explicitly discussing or e...

You would be struck by that because it's assumed as the default. Most actors simply don't play gay characters. You are either ignorant or blinded by your inherent homophobic bias.

You don't say this at any obvious display of heterosexuality, of course. "No phobia" indeed.

Re: Russell T Davis: It's A Sin

I find odd they name a Show like a song but only used a few seconds on an episode and not even hear it sings it, just the intro... Nothing odd about it. It's not a promo piece! If the writer is a fan, , which obviously is not The writer is a fan. would have made an opening with and named the show&q...

That's not a statistical poll of the Pet Shop Boys' audience. It's a self-selecting demographic of 244 site users who chose to offer up their information. A statistician would laugh you out the door and onto the street.

Re: Russell T Davis: It's A Sin

I can't believe it's 2021 and there are still troglodytes whinging about a gay drama on a message board for a band comprised of two gay men.

It's not meant to reflect Los Angeles. It's meant to reflect a certain LA sound from the past, which it does.
