Muse-related musings.

As many of you know, my second favorite (second only to Beck, who's been my very favorite musician since 1996) musical genius is Muse. I love their music, their lyrics, Matt Fucking Bellamy (because he's the fucking awesomest!), and pretty much everything about them. They are seriously amazing, and I often can't shut up about them.

I love how Muse is good to their fans. For instance, anyone who pre-ordered their new album (The Resistance, due out 9/14 in the UK, 9/15 in the US and Canada; preview 30-second snippets of the songs by clicking here) gets a new download sent to them every week leading up to the album's release.

However, I have a little problem with this week's download...



Sneak peak? PEAK?!? Muse, can you please fire that silly person you've got writing your e-mail blasts and hire me instead? I'm better at grammar, and probably much more adorable than whoever you've got now. You wouldn't even have to pay me--if, like, Matt walked by and said hi to me every once in a while (and yes, I know that as their e-mail blast bitch I'd likely not be working anywhere near where the band actually is, but I'm dreaming here, so work with me, OK?), and nobody cared that I'd scream and squeal for an hour or so after he was out of earshot, that would be enough compensation for me.

Also, I'd be much more annoyed about this homonym error if there wasn't such an adorable little picture of Matt included on the e-mail blast. Way to go, homonymically-challenged e-mail blast writer, distracting me with cuteness...

From one Muse fan to another, I say nice play, sister. What a beautiful scheme! If someone over at Muse HQ takes you seriously in your bid for the e-blast bitch post, I'll be the first to congratulate you!

Perhaps by saying "sneak peak" they mean he's a top-tier spy...

@ Ray: Thanks! (Also: I rarely come across any other Muse fans, so I'm excited to have found another one!) :D

If by some crazy chance any folks from Muse's entourage are reading this, let me make a few things clear:

1. I will NOT pounce on Matt the moment I see him.
2. I will NOT throw my panties at him.
3. I will NOT scream or shriek so loudly that I make him deaf.
4. I am SUCH a good employee who NEVER misbehaves.*

Reeeeealllllly. You can totally trust me on these things!

* OK, that "never misbehaves" part is kind of a lie. But I'm cute and I can spell, so that makes up for it, right?

@ EVula: Ooh, that makes him sound kinda James Bond-ish. Which makes him EVEN HOTTER. *swoon*

I'll have sweet dreams tonight for sure!
