The final results are in for my survey of the past week, in which I 
asked my site visitors how many times they've seen the Pet Shop Boys 
perform "live," in-person. And the number of times that received the 
most votes was:

* "1 (once)," picked by 15.4% of the voters.

To see the complete results, please visit my "Commentary" site at 
http://www.geowayne.com/psbhtml.htm and select one of the "Past Survey 
Results" options in the top navigation bar or click the appropriate link 
on my "What's New?" page.

As I've been suggesting of late, I've now decided, as least for the time 
being, to begin running my polls on a biweekly/fortnightly basis rather 
than weekly. And, appropriately enough, my new poll running for the next 
two weeks may require some "homework" on your part, so the extra time 
may prove helpful. I've listed each of the calendar years since the 
release of the Pet Shop Boys' first album, "Please," in which they did 
*not* release another one of their generally acknowledged 13 "studio" 
albums. That makes for a total of 20 different years. But I've listed 
each of those years twice, and I'm asking you to make two choices: which 
of them would you describe as the BEST "PSB year" in which they didn't 
release a studio album, and which was the WORST? In other words, please 
consider everything done and/or released by the Boys in those years -- 
singles (and their b-sides), compilation albums, Disco albums, music 
videos, live concerts, VHS/DVDs, "side projects" (such as Closer to 
Heaven, Battleship Potemkin, The Most Incredible Thing, etc.), 
publications, and so on -- and choose the years that you think were the 
"best" and the "worst." So please, when you're ready, make your choices 
right there on my home page. And thanks so much to David B for 
suggesting this intriguing question!

Thanks as well to everyone who voted in last week's survey! And I hope 
you all have a terrific two weeks ahead!
