May I say with intense appreciation to this my recent music addiction: You guys rock!! Wow -- and what a great concert that Sunday, Sep 16th! Love how that Matt plays his guitars...mmmm...and the piano...and what a voice...and writes that music! Yay for YouTube! ha! The drummer and bass player do such excellent support, too; and round out the band most excellently. Been listening to their music entirely too much, heh. It even has me making space and getting my keyboard out again so I can do some wicked piano playing of my own. To be honest, rather poor playing actually, but still fun for me. Funny, I only vaguely recall a mention of the group (this after some deep thought) from a few years ago in one of my 3D classes because one of my old instructors at school said that he was working on some part of a bit of a 3D concert video for the band...which I actually saw yet again at the Muse concert; but I never actually heard their music, even though I usually listen to one of the local alternative rock radio stations in the area. Wasn't until I started reading Stephenie Meyer's Twilight series (over and over and over...sigh) the weekend that Eclipse was released shortly after the final Harry Potter (which I had quickly finished as previously mentioned), and got curious about the music playlist that she posted up for each of her books as a cool soundtrack for her readers...and read about how much Muse inspired her while she was writing these books so that I got curious enough to pick up one of their CD's...and got Absolution. Loved it -- wanted more! And the next day while driving to work I found out that Muse was gonna be in town in a few weeks for a concert...so we had to go, of course!
Ah, well. Enough on that. It's been a weird, stressful summer for me personally so I'm still allowing myself to indulge in this unusual, but most likely temporary, musical and reading wackiness. But, for now...back to the sketchbooks!
