We're 3 Pet Shop Boys fans who blog about them. Each of us (Lizzy, Jaleen and Clare) own individual blogs dedicated to PSB, each of the blogs are very different (and sometimes will feature non PSB posts on some of the blogs) http://www.facebook.com/pages/Pet-Shop-Boys-blogging/157777994317781 <<---our blog page
This one is Clare's, and my initials will be (CM). I run a review type blog on PSB, that is dedicated purely to their music and giving my opinion to their work. Its a fairly new blog, only started in August but I'm updating it all the time! I tend to concentrate more on their lyrics as opposed to their visual content also.
http://nonstopwestendartofpsbandsc.blogspot.com/ This one is own by me Jaleen. It's basically me posting my art of the Pet Shop Boys and Soft Cell really.
My latest one is http://artworldsofpetshopboysandsoftcell.blogspot.com/ I will be discussing my observations of both Pet Shop Boys and Soft Cell videos and Marc Almond videos!.

Catalogue is a fantastic Pet Shop Boys book. It is a 336 page book with over thousands astounding photographs of Neil Tennant and Chris Lowe. I asked fans what book would be the first book of the Pet Shop Boys to get, they all told me to get Catalogue. I'm glad I bought it, it really is a fascination to get. It starts off with bits of photos of them from then to now and then during the University Tour. It is like a brief introduction almost like you see a sneak preview of their reflection knowing to be a two guy band that last for so long. Then it takes you back all the way from West End Girls to Battleship Potemkin. What I personally love about the book as an artist, it reveals photos from their promos and so on in an organized fashion. It reveals all their songs that was released as videos and as singles. You can definitely tell their fashion sense was way different like it is now. I also love how they give a brief sample of their other books too. The title of the book really speaks for itself. The well-organized snippets of their music videos. Having contact sheets too and showing how other photos looked like before they chosen the final photo. The Christmas cards are enjoyable to look at as well, it reveals how the musicians have a soft side under their frowns. The Chronology is well put out as well from start to just about finish really, and the conversation of the Pet Shop Boys with Chris Heath (also known for Pet Shop Boys vs. America and Literally and can be heard on the Pet Shop Boys's Pop Art DVD commentary)It also proves to the viewers that Neil and Chris strongly adore art, it reflects on their materpieces. I only wished they could have it to come out around this time, because of their wondrous piece The Most Incredible Thing. I love it when artists know art, observe it and take it as their own and have fun with it. I would highly recommend this book to any fellow artists or any fan that really adore them or love photos! I can also say on a personal note, I practically have my own little collection in one book. It is almost like a guide to their artistic world if you will. I want to say more about the book, but for now this is far as I go. and it also have on the front cover Chris Lowe in the "Suburbia" photo shoot and Neil Tennant on the back. the hardback have the Nightlife photo in a pinkish orange colour. ) P.S. the photo has a picture of my painting pants on the bottom of the photo XD

Hello, Jaleen! Best wishes to you from far away country named Russia! :)) Now I looked at your page and found that we have many common interests. In addition, we have common friends and acquaintances in Europe and Russia. If you don't mind I would like to be your 777th friend (what's a lucky number!) )))))))))))) xx
About me a little: I am 34 years old, I lived in St. Petersburg (Russia), I love good music, cinema, literature and art. It unites us, is not it? As I see you like Pet Shop Boys, Soft Cell etc. Me too, I love for a long time the music of Marc Almond. And I like the whole British musical culture. And I am interested in anyone who shares my passion for it.
I would be glad to see you in the circle of my friends, Jaleen. Goodbye! :-)))

Hello I just thought I post this. I'm still on my Android smartphone, but I can handle typing with it. Anyway, few days ago after my birthday. I gotten a message by Val Denham she did Marc and the Mambas album art back in the 80s and she responded to me on Facebook! I was in tears of joy! I couldn't believe she actually responded to someone like me. She's very nice and she was critiquing my artwork and actually wants a drawing from me! It may not be a pet text or a message from Marc Almond but to me, as an artist this really means a lot damn near the world to me. Never thought things like this would happen! I had over 200 birthday wishes, gotten artwork done by sweet pet head friends and a video done by a very nice pet head friend. People say I'm popular but in reality, I am just being myself. I don't copy people or go nuts like some of the fans I encountered. I am an artist at heart. Eversince I been on Facebook and dealt with some Ignoramous fans I can really see why Neil and Chris left Twitter. Some of the things I found out was quite appalling. Even hearing about Marc Almond fans its sad really. What happened to a simple adoration? I just feel really sorry that the Pet Shop Boys and Marc Almond had to go through with nonsense. When all they wanted to do is simply express themselves and bond with their fans the best way they can. They can't even do that without encountering a nutty fan. People get jealous of me for no reason. I don't wish harm to no one or anyone really. All I do is draw and have conversations with people. Some people call me their mentors and what not all because I show them about just being yourself and post their artwork. Sometimes I wonder how people sleep at night doing things. They call it love, but all I see is lust. Just thought I would post this. I was just wanted to say something since I have been posting artwork on here. Please don't think I'm nuts because I'm not. Anyway thanks for looking at my artblog and more artwork will be added here soon! Enjoy!
This is my cartoon animal version of Neil and my character Julia Foxx.
