hello hello! welcome back Nutcracker! we missed you!

 

microcuts wouldnt be that bad.. especially with the awesome outro that will get the crowd going. i'd love to hear Matt sing live like that too.

 

Nutcracker, how long is your NS gonna be? and lucky you! at least you'll have someone to talk to about Muse with. :D yeah isn't the rockstar life the easiest? i actually feel like taking up bass. plus, i have a few friends who can lend me (rahter than buying a brand new one) their bass guitars and amps cause knowing me, i lose interest real easily.

 

oh, and uh, Happy Deepava-raya people! :LOL:

Aw thanks Debbie! NS is two years.

 

Yeah i love the outro riff of Microcuts so i figured it would be a great song to open up a gig :). Bass is so cool to learn. When you get better and learn Hysteria, you'll be so proud of yourself! I have my own Muse cover band but our vocalist is a girl :LOL: . Im on drums and i love it. You should try to learn bass. I started learning guitar on the acoustic and then learn guitar and bass riffs. It's easy learning with the internet. You should get Guitarpro.

 

Haha happy DeepaRaya to you guys tooo!!

heh, at the risk of sounding like a party pooper, here're my two cents on the subject. i actually don't think it's easy to be a rockstar. venue after venue for show after show, playing song after song usually the same ones over and over. your schedule is hectic day after day (during the mandatory a-year++-long tour to promote whatever new album you might've just released) as you try to please fan after fan. everything is fast, so fast. and with the kind of money you're making, everything you can't afford before, you can now. tempting, so tempting. and before long, if you get sidetracked and all your reasons take a dive downward, and get drawn into every temptation there is, you'll fall, and you'll fade.

 

it has its ups, lots of ups in fact (which had seduced and blinded one talented rockstar too many), but along with the perks there're always, ALWAYS drawbacks. why else do you think so many stars, especially rock ones, burn out so fast?

 

it's not easy to stay focused in the world of stardom. everyone starts out with a vision, but not everyone will be able to come out the other side in triumph. and even those who do manage it, don't come out unscathed.

 

some have what it takes, and some don't. those who do, you know they really love what they do and are in the business because of that one main reason. the rest are all salad dressing.

 

you want to get into it, fine. but make sure you're not doing it for all the wrong reasons.=) it's ok if you wanna make it cos it looks so fun, you're actually off to a good start even. but don't ever get or fall for the illusion that it's all easy peasy. cos the moment you do, well let's just say you're not off to that good start i was talking about. ^_~

 

otherwise, good luck with your bass-learning endeavor~~

two years?!?!?! fwoaaah, here its only 3 months! and you come back to civilization how many times a year/month/week?

 

lol i'm in a band too, as the vocalist. my God its scary :| i am possibly the most stage fright person in the wooorld. at our first (and only) gig at school mid-2006, my mouth was sooo dry on stage, i was so scared my voice was gonna crack. thank God we had 2 vocalists that time.. so she was there to er, calm me down i guess. haha. and it was a success! we were the best band there :D but now our bassist and second vocalist left! so er.. yeah we're still looking for a bassist.

 

and once i am able to play the bass to Hysteria while climbing up the stairs (like in Glasto, lol!), i'll be sooo happy and proud to say, I CAN PLAY THE DAMN BASS :D. haha. i can already play TIRO actually.. just veryy verry slowwwlyyy.....

 

and yeah rockstars normally turn to drugs, suicide and stuff right? or mushrooms. lol what's up with Muse and their mushrooms anyway?

 

and dont worry, i dont intend to be a rockstar.. not in Malaysia anyway. haha. this band thing is just a hobby.. or a bunch of friends just hanging out, making music.. thats all :) we dont do Muse though. :(

our drummer is into all that heavier stuff like Slipknot, Metallica, and Korn. poo. how gay. and he thinks Muse is EMO . WTF RIGHT?

Yeah i guess Muse is one of the few bands that made it and are still doing what they originally started the band for. My highest respect naturally go to them. Duh :LOL: .

 

I dig what your drummer's into. I can understand why he thinks Muse is emo :LOL: .

Yes 2 years no kidding. For this first 3 months I can come home on the weekends only.

 

But seriously i think being a rock star has got to be one of the best professions out there. Second would be an astronaut, for me. :D What's your dream job Spirit?

OMGOMGOMGOMG MALAYSIAN MUSE FANS!!! I only just found this thread. :D

 

I play guitar, drums, bass, piano and vocals and Muse is my #1 favourite band ever! Such an inspired group. This might sound corny but I can relate to the various experiences that Matt has expressed through his lyrics. The man is a musical genius. It's comforting to know I'm not the only eccentric, alternative-thinking type of person out there. :D

 

I've been obsessed with them since the Absolution era. After buying their album, I downloaded heaps of their previous songs and got the Hullabaloo DVD. Then I got the Glastonbury DVD. Now I have all albums and DVDs.....must get Manic Depression and Inside the MM too. My current Youtube collection of them is getting ridiculous now, so much stuff. And finally, I must see them live and perhaps even meet them too. Then my life will truly be complete.

 

Erm....yeah. They rock.

 

*EDIT - Man, I hate how most of my Malaysian friends assume Muse is emo. Ignorant bastards.

LOL ME TOO ME TOO! ahhaha :D welcome de7iIznite! wow you play a lotta instruments, doncha? and er, i didnt know they released the Absolution Tour DVD here! i've been looking for it all over the place and i couldnt find anything. where'd you get yours from?

then tell me, why would Muse be considered emo? we end up argueing whenever he says Muse stinks and they're emo. lol..

and er, after 3 months, how often do you come back?

 

i think Muse has gone a liiiitle bit to the pop side, with Starlight and all. not that i'm complaining or anything. :)

it's a trend these days to call everything you don't understand, or can't be bothered to understand, emo, didn't you all know? a fad, if you will. it's oh-so-convenient and we can't blame them cos it's not like we don't fall into the same traps ourselves sometimes, that is labelling something simply when we don't understand it. =) but damn, these people all sound so...so...young. and i don't mean physically.

 

no matter. if they ever get to see and listen to the band live with their very own eyes and ears, they'll realize. either that, or they'll come around eventually. if not, what's the phrase they use again...less man more share? ^_^

 

edit (very late in coming but since no one has replied yet, i see no point in posting a new reply): alternatively you can sit them down to the KoC video and tell them to call the band emo to your face after having watched that. i'm willing to bet that their minds will change. but while i can almost guarantee that as long as they're not blind or deaf, something different will come out from their mouths, i can't guarantee that it'll be no less derogatory. *snicker* cos after all, muse is the kind of band you'll either love very much or hate to the ends of the world. or so some say.

 

and nice to have you on board this lil' niche of ours, de7ilznite ^_^ this is one of the reasons why we all love the Internet despite all of its shortcomings. ^_~

 

 

But seriously i think being a rock star has got to be one of the best professions out there. Second would be an astronaut, for me. :D What's your dream job Spirit?

my dream job, huh? i think i'd like to either be one of the production crew of discovery travel and adventure, or someone in the creative gaming industry. vague description, i know, but when it comes to me, it's mainly the industry or a large aspect of it that i'm interested in, rather than just a small significant part of it. i guess i just like to be involved with something i'm interested in, to get my finger into the pie, so to speak. xD

I feel most welcome here. :D WE MUST INCREASE THE MALAYSIAN MUSE FANBASE!!! My younger brother shares my passion for them too and he's been telling all his highschool friends all about them. Hopefully the love will fully catch on.

 

Debbie, yeah i love music too much ey! I'm a beginner on the piano though. I can play mostly arpeggiated stuff eg Sunburn, New Born, Plug in Baby (transcribed to piano) and some other things. Would love to learn Space Dementia and the B&H solo someday. The first song i picked up on drums was TIRO, very fun to play. Moved on to Hysteria and SS next.

 

But of course, guitar is my priority. Learned most of their stuff, Hysteria, TIRO, PiB, New Born, MM, Unintended, SS, SMBH, Cave. Trying to move on to shred guitar now and my bass isn't too bad either. I've also modelled my vocals on Matt's voice, so I've got the whole falsetto thing going on. My housemates love hearing me sing. :D

 

But yeah, I actually got the Glastonbury DVD in Msia....it was pirated! :D Ah i feel terrible now. But I'm addicted to Hulaballoo, it's too brilliant.

 

And regarding emo, I've always thought it was referring to music that was trying a little too hard to show emotion, especially in the vocals. Muse doesn't really fit that descripton because Matt's singing is genuine and passionate. Listen to Citizen Erased. ;)

 

And TOADA.....wow, what a song. I really started to think about religion properly after reading its lyrics and contemplating what was trying to be expressed. Matt has inspired me in so many ways. I'm Muslim btw.

 

vspirit, you hit the nail right on the head. :)

yeah well, that's the original meaning but what i meant to say was that this word has been taken out of context, the way it's being used these days. which explains why some people term muse or whatever other band as that, when they actually aren't.

 

funnily enough, i haven't heard or seen anyone do that, not even when i was scouring the net for more info on them. tis the first time i'm hearing it, coming from you guys. well not you guys per se, but from your own experiences.

 

and i do remember somone complaining his singing being more technical than emotional. me, i don't really care to the degree of being so analytical. whatever sounds good, sounds good. *shrug* same way you can't explain when something smells good. it just smells good, end of story. it's the same for when something smells bad, too, of course. heh.

 

And TOADA.....wow, what a song. I really started to think about religion properly after reading its lyrics and contemplating what was trying to be expressed. Matt has inspired me in so many ways. I'm Muslim btw.

ah, in that case, Selamat Hari Raya. did you balik kampung? or are you just gonna muck around in this here city?

 

vspirit, you hit the nail right on the head. :)

eh heh heh, i love it when people say that to me. cept...i'm not quite sure which nail i am supposed to have hit so would you care to clarify...?

hello peoplee!! you are looking at the new waitress of TGIF, at *editted out to avoid any crazy random stalkers*! haha! :D eat there and when/if i'm serving you, say "muse rocks my socks" and watch me freak out! haha but man, i'm gonna hate waitressing cause its freakin tiring. but oh well, i need the money, plus my friends are working there too :D

 

Selamat Hari Raya de7ilznite!!!

the thing i hate about my friend who called Muse EMO, is that he wont give them a freakin chance! sure he likes the heavier stuff like stockholm and hysteria, but he still labels them as emo. that arse.

 

is Dashboard Confessional categorized under emo? cause damn it they're good :) and usually when a band is under the emo category.. it means you dont like it, and you dont understand it and dont intend to.. like what vspirit just said.

 

yeah i kinda did that... i put the vid on my blog to promote their new coming single and all.. but i doubt anyone will watch it. youtube's been a bitch lately. and that is extremely true.. Muse is a band you'll love with all your heart, or hate to the ends of the world. hardly anybody is in between. its Matt's falsetto that divides the lovers and haters.

 

 

I've also modelled my vocals on Matt's voice, so I've got the whole falsetto thing going on. My housemates love hearing me sing.

 

really?! you can?! gosh, i cant make my voice go that high, and i'm a GIRRRLLL! with a very VERY limited range in my voice. and yet i'm still my band's vocalist. hardeeharhar. how'd you make your voice like that anyway?

well you know what happens when you don't give things a chance: you miss out. and that's precisely what your friend is doing: missing out. it's not a big deal. don't lose sleep over it or anything. it's his loss, not yours. =)

 

from what i can see, your friend's world, as far as music is concerned, is made up of only two things: really loud music and the rest. and your friend, being the young, young person he is, can't help but fall into the trap so many just as painfully young people do, and term the rest as emo, probably--no--definitely without understanding the full extend of what that word means and what it represents. your friend, he still has a lot of growing up to do, and it's not up to you to force him to. he'll have to do it in his own time. til then, just rejoice that you have a broader view, and thus knowledge, on music and are closer to knowing what it's really about.

 

fridays, you say? heh heh, i was there a few months ago. don't really patronize it so much unless my friends have some sorta gathering. and i can't very well say "muse rox my sox" to every waitress that serves us. what if it's not you? imagine the looks i'll get from both the waitresses and my friends :$ but then if you make it known what a crazy musehead you are, then they'll probably come running to tell you to serve my table, heh heh.

Welcome to the club de7ilznite! But im Singaporean heh heh.

 

Wow this emo thing is such a big issue eh? Personally i think emo can't be defined. The truth is, i don't really know what emo is. All i can derive from it is its literal meaning, like what de7ilznite had posted.

 

Congratulations on your new job Debbie! I would love to get served by a Musette haha. When things get tough just think about your next paycheck. Anyway after 3 months of basic military school they'll post me to a unit, which might be a 9-5 thing or something bad just like this 3 months.

Selamat Hari Raya! Thanks guys! I'm still stuck here in Australia though, got my exams in 3 weeks. :( Will return home straight after though, I can't wait.

 

I'm not really into Dashboard, I'd say they are emo. ;)

 

Muse is different because Matt has this amazing ability to channel genuine raw emotion through his singing. Whether he's being angry or tender and romantic. He's able to express an entire spectrum of genuine emotions through his singing, it's amazing. And there's nothing wrong with that, music is all about conveying emotions and feelings anyway. The average emo band is rubbish at that, I am hardly stirred when I listen to their stuff.

 

Well Debbie, at first I had to really strain my voice whenever I sing in order to match Matt's range. I was terrible at first, had a horrible karaoke-type voice ;) but I worked on my range as well as breathing technique (I breathe like Matt too, like the verses on TIRO). All I need now is clear my throat before singing and perhaps have some water as well. I practice regularly when I'm driving (I deliver pizzas) and when I'm around the house (mostly when I think no-one's around) but all my housemates have heard me and told me they love listening to me. It's a great way to relieve stress too.

 

Matt's falsetto is AWESOME!! How can anyone not love it???!!

 

I basically sing along to all their songs all the time. I can do the "Oooh-woo-oo, yeah-yeah-yeah" part on TIRO pretty good. Best way to achieve the highest standard is to practice Microcuts though. ;) KoC is pretty tough too.

 

Hey Nutcracker! Nah, it's all good, neighbourino. :D

lol thats what nametags are for! haha i hope mine doesnt say "linette" like the one in the muscle museum video or i'd end up crying all night every night... hah. er. right. bad joke. anyway, yeah i think we get nametags. if we dont also, i think i'm the only chinse female waitress there.. so er, come! haha. but note that i might snap any minute because its really frustrating. :)

thanks! :D lol i've been thinking about my next paycheck a lot lately. :p its Thursday... so you're probably in NS by now right? :(

 

Matt's falsetto is AWESOME!! How can anyone not love it???!!

 

to be honest i didnt really like Matt's falsetto at first. that was one of the reasons why Origin was my least favourite album! but eventually his falsetto kinda grew on me... and now i WANT to sound like that! haha. but Absolution still remains on top of my 'favourite Muse album list' :)

 

and i really really like Dashboard! besides the fact that their vocalist, Chris is extremely good looking, their music sounds good too! but one thing i dont get is how come the band members dont get any attention what so ever? they're hardly in videos, nor in pictures! its like as if Chris IS Dashboard Confessional. pooh.

 

i love that dom wears a slipknot mask video! its Matt's squeeley laughter thats makes me ROFLMAO rather than Dom's immitation of slipknot. lol! if i do show that to my friend, he'd probably hate Muse even more.. either that or he's be really open minded about it and laugh about it. but i've got a feeling its the former rather than the latter.

 

hmm true wat vspirit said abt too little fans..come to JB lah...lol i love love love muse music muse muse! lol hehe

1 more thing, can 12 year olds masuk concerts?

 

hello!! welcome muse_music! haha :D IF Muse does come to Malaysia and then to Singapore or vice versa, they'd probably drive past JB on the way! haha. and yeah 12 year olds can masuk concerts, if there's no age restriction and stuff la. i was 11 when i went to my first concert! :)

actually, like what de7ilznite said, you've hit the nail right on the head. Carrabba IS the only one in the band that matters. in fact, i think i've read somewhere which says that DC is more or less a solo effort but Carrabba wanted to play in a band as a band, and not as a solo artiste, so that's where the others come in. if it wasn't for that, they're little more than touring band members. sounds harsh i know, especially when i put it like that, but that is the impression i've been getting based on what i've seen and read of that band.

yeah you're not the only one getting that impression. i dont think its quite fair to the band members though.. even if they're okay with it or not. dont they want to be in videos or album covers?

 

on the other hand, anyone heard of Incubus' new single Anna-Molly yet? its pretty good!
