We’re calling all Muse fans from all over the world to join our little project – don’t worry, it won’t hurt :).

 

Our secret project is named “2-0-1-0 – scrapbook for Matthew Bellamy” (it’s this wonky toothed guy from Muse :p). We know that Matt’s already got plenty of scrapbooks, but we thought that this one was a little bit different than the other ones, as this one got a theme.

I – AM – and another Muser – Assa – wrote a story called “2-0-1-0” that is mostly based on a book “1984” written by George Orwell. We added Musey accents as whole band characters and to make “revolution take its toll” we need to unify and believe in power of music. Also, it’s written in a way of a journal, so it’s like Matt’s writing down his thoughts. As we simply can’t get into his brain, we’ve used Muse lyrics and our imagination + little parts of interviews to make it.

Why am I writing it? Here’s the thing – scrapbook got two parts:

● themed part

● “normal” part

 

Themed Part is connected with the “2-0-1-0” story (Muse/music saving the world) and book “1984”.

● you can make any kind of illustration (drawing, painting, photography) connected with the story of "1984" or "2-0-1-0".

● you can also write a poem in a spirit of the story or a book “1984” OR rewrite some Muse lyrics (just don’t copy and paste “Resistance” hehe)

 

Simply – anything connected with the subject Muse/music saving the world is welcome and appreciated. We trust your creativity and fantasy.

 

”Normal” Part is a typical scrapbook.

● drawings, paintings, photos; caricatures, portraits (of Matt/whole band(?)) something connected with Matt’s interests scuba-diving, conspiracy theories, universe etc

● letters, thanks to him

But yep, I write it all down, because some people told me they don’t know what to make, so these are just examples of what you can add. Just remember that it can not be insultive, but I guess it’s obvious. Open your mind, free your mind and create something for Matt, it’s as simple as that :).

 

We’re gonna give it to Matt at 11th September 2010, so today it’s the start of collecting your works.

As the deadline came at 1st of August, we can still recive your works till 4th August, since I'm leaving at 5th to print the book

Send your works at: farmermattbook@hotmail.com ; write your: username, real name and your country in the email – it’s all of the scrapbook, we won’t use it anywhere else.

 

If you have any questions about the scrapbook PM:

AMfromPoland!! (send me PM also if you want to send your original work for the scrapbook)

Trefline (Assa)

We’ll answer all of your questions.

 

We hope you’ll take part in this project and help us.

Link to the story

 

Rite, just a short notice Do not use this scrapbook as a thing to give your contact details to Matthew. It's simply weird getting a letter: contact me at (...) write back at (...). He's a busy person and it's like 5% that he'll write back. Also we want him to enjoy reading nice comments from fans. It's not to offend anyone - just don't treat this scrapbook as an "address book". Thank you for concern ;).

We’ve got an idea of adding a flag to the scrapbook. The flag’d look like: on one side: photos of fans/or Muse in a shape of Eurasia and a writing “United Muse Fans” and the back of the flag’d be with photos of fans with a writing “we’re not droplets in the ocean”.

Thank you all for voting and paying attention to our project :).

for any infos PM me or write at: flagatto@hotmail.com

 

We're not going to use your photos anywhere else than the flag The work will be visible only for Matt's eyes, mine and eyes of the graphic whose gonna edit the photos. We're not gonna spread them all around the web, don't worry :). We'll show the project as soon as it's going to be finished.

 

Flag will be as big as Eurasia flag on muse.mu shop, which means 80x110cms.

 

Thank you for taking part in it :pimp:.

 

Edit: The Flag Part is FINISHED. Now the one&only deadline is 1st August 2010 :). So send your works at farmermattbook@hotmail.com

Thanks :D Is there a deadline for decisions on what day we'd like to draw?

 

There's no dead line, you just have to PM me, so I'll write here and on the website of the story that the day it's taken; but yes, it must be before 1st August, cause then we're closing collecting all stuffs and then you must send a drawing to it ;), it'd be nice if it was already chosen to like June or something tho, cause then I'd not have to worry or make something all by myself, I don't wanna be left alone with like 10 days to make during whole holidays, u know ;).
