Personal Information

  • Biography
    I'm 22, from the American Midwest. I don't live on a farm--I get asked that a lot. I've never been outside of the U.S., but would like to travel abroad someday.
  • Location
  • Interests
    Recent college graduate, so I'm unemployed and living at home with my parents...or, as I like to call it, living the dream.

    I like to read, watch movies and television, spend time with friends, take (bad) photographs, play video games, and travel.
  • Occupation
    Radio Station Employee
  • Gender
  • Show Flash Content
  • Favourite Bands
    I've always loved British musicians; I've had a fifteen year relationship with John, Paul, George, and Ringo, and I also list Led Zeppelin, Queen, and Eric Clapton as some of my favorite artists.

    Very into rock--classic rock, mostly, some hard rock, heavy metal, a bit of alternative. I worked at a jazz station for a year and a half, so I can even listen to that.
  • Favourite Films
    I love classic films, with actors like Cary Grant, Jimmy Stewart, Gregory Peck, and Paul Newman. Favorite movie is Fight Club, strangely enough.
  • Favourite TV Shows
    True Blood (Team Eric), Doctor Who, White Collar, Psych, and NCIS.
  • Favourite Books
    The Cider House Rules, by John Irving, and the Outlander Series, by Diana Gabaldon.
  • Muse Releases Owned
    Showbiz, OoS, Hullabaloo DVD, Absolution, most of BHAR, The Resistance, most b-sides...
  • Muse Concerts Attended / Attending
    My first-ever Muse gig will be Nov. 6th, 2010 in Cincinnati.
  1. The main problem with this "article" and others like it is the fact that they imply the fact that Matt has complete creative control over Muse. Whether or not Matt wants to write "soft" music or a double album filled with the saxophone solo from Careless Whisper by Wham!, it's not his decision alone to make. The band has said before that they function as a democracy, so ideally, Matt wouldn't be wielding total control over the other two that would lead them to go "soft".
  2. I'm pretty sure that Teh Kirk played as well, but I think that's it as far as the band/Tom go. Chris said once on Twitter that Dom's pants are too tight for him to play football in, and Matt was on his way to the U.S. when they had their most recent game...
  3. My post has nothing to do with Radiohead or Feeling Good or setlists or setlist polls, sorry to say... My controversial opinion is this: Matt Bellamy, despite his crazy genius, is starting to look like a bit of a hypocrite. I like Matt. I always have. I respect his genius, and his quirky personality, and I love the band he put together with Dom and Chris. I'm not here to comment on what he does with his personal life, but rather a weird side-effect of his personal life. For years, Muse and Matt were somewhat anti-celebrity. Matt made a number of comments saying how the lifestyle he wanted to have was very much the opposite of the gossip-rag, Hollywood celebrity lifestyle, and how he didn't see himself, Muse, or their music fitting in with any of that. Now, Matt's becoming pretty regular character in gossip threads, and even waves and smiles at the paparazzi. I definitely get that people grow and their opinions change, but I just thought that Matt would continue to stay under the radar and be part of the biggest band no one's ever heard of. Now, he's fodder for the gossip columnists, and he even seems to enjoy it a little bit, which is so different than what he said in the past, that I can't help but be confused.
  4. Yes, I'd say they're now commercial, at least, they are definitely far more commercial now than they were, say 10 years ago. The Muse we see now with the huge stage shows and the LED suits are a far cry from the Muse that were introduced to us all with Showbiz. They seem to have lost their "underground" "unique" edge over time and they're far more accessible to the mainstream now than they were when Matt was performing songs like "Micro Cuts" and smashing the stage up with his (non-Manson) guitar. But it happens to most musical artists--you sign with a major label, you get exposure in film and television, and you become "commercial". While it may not be a bad thing, it does end up changing the artist in the end.

  6. I love the Loveline interviews. They're so cringeworthy, but Matt ends up getting pretty into it and makes some funny comments, and every once in awhile, Dom makes an offhanded comment that just makes you .
  7. But...but...Muse would finally "break America!" My first thought when I read the original article was that this kinda paves the way for Matt's solo career. I'm not saying it's going to happen tomorrow, or next year, or ever, for that matter...but this kind of publishing agreement with Warner would make it easy for Matt's solo material to be released without having to hassle about looking for a contract or publishing agreement somewhere else. Just a thought as far as publishing agreements and song ownership and copyrights and things go, the last thing that Matt/Muse want to do are lose the rights to their own music. *glances at the Michael Jackson Estate, which still owns a healthy chunk of The Beatles catalog*:mad:
  8. I loved the part with Dom dumping half the jar of Coffee Mate into his coffee cup. Man after my own heart. Honestly, not my favorite interview ever. Dom spent half of time looking bored, staring at other interesting things in the room (a plant? a pretty crew member? more Coffee Mate?), but I loved his outfit. He looked great. Special Note For Maffoo Matt, you need to rotate your pants. I know it's hard, and you don't make a lot of money doing this whole music thing...but you really should try a different pair of pants every once in awhile. Wouldn't want to wear them out.
  9. Thank you for sharing this, it was really interesting to hear Matt's take on one of his musical "idols". I wonder this about a lot of musicians, especially Jimi. It's a sad thought to know that Jimi and others were taken from us before their talent could be fully shared with the world.
  10. I'm not quite sure what the link for the video is, but there is an absolutely AMAZING mime of Muscle Museum floating around Youtube...they play the whole song with pantyhose on their heads.
  11. Yes....but hopefully Dom will dress up as something ridiculous again soon and bring the thread back to life.
