It was MUSE day yesterday and it was a very, very excellent day.
I'll review, but instead of just useless comments I'll go through the setlist;
Take a Bow;
First song, obviously they can't just EXPLODE into this like most other bands do with their first song, but they eased their way onto stage rather well with this... People were confused about what to do here.
Exploded into this and did a great job of it.
Map of the Problematique;
I started enjoying myself more around here, I sang (shouted horribly) more at this point. They played it way better than it is on the album.
Butterflies and Hurricanes;
Loved every second of it.
Very, very good, but I wish they played Exo-Politics instead.
Plug in Baby;
One of the best songs of the set, I knew they were going to play it as soon as Matt started having sex with the amp on the left of the stage. This was the first song me and Rayner jumped to, so Rayner got less scared of falling to her deaths.
Words can't explain how fantastically they played this.
I wish they played a different B-Side, I thought it kind of lasted too long... But oh well, it was a nice segway into...
When the song started it was all quiet and stuff, but then when they actually PLAYED it blew me away, it was just incredible and energetic.
This (as well as New Born) made up for the lack of Citizen Erased (which I bet £10 they will play tonight while I'm not there). But Matt's megaphone broke, which is lame.
Like this song on the album. Love it live. Just the piano just sounds so much better than that acoustic guitar.
Wonderful. I'm glad they played this, it's one of my favourite songs from the new album. The guitar solo kicked even more rear-end too.
Supermassive Black Hole;
Awesome. Though not as good as some of the other songs, but still wonderfully amazing.
Time is Running Out;
Everyone knows this song, everyone sang along, everyone loved it.
Even though I love this on the album, they just better it with the extra guitar solos and whatnot.
Me and Rayner sang this too each other 'cause we're cool like that. Matt Bellamy rocks.
I am ever so glad that they played this, I really am... I'll never forget this or Starlight.
Knights of Cydonia;
Just incredible, really. Everyone in the whole audience was singing along with it, even when we were going home some people were singing it.
Awesome night, awesome band, fantastic live show. Though the set could have been better, who cares? It's MUSE!!
I suggest everyone alive should see them.

Okay, first of all... Remind me never to eat icing in school again... Brah.
I just cut a big lump of hair off cause I had some chewing gum stuck in it... I have no idea why...
I'm going to the Phoenix later to see Don't Think Twice and some other horrible bands. I don't expect to have fun, but whatever. I'm going with my brother and meeting up with Ste and those other people that I know there.
And now I'm going to continue playing the Path of Neo.

You should REALLY listen to this song
it is awesome. Listen. Do it. You'll love it.
Anyway... I've been coughing all day. Seriously. It's annoying. I guess I'm sick cause I'm sneezing a bit, too. Gah.
I got home (10 MINUTES EARLY! YEAHHH!!!) and spent about half an hour trying to fix the other computer upstairs. I had no luck at all. Oh well.
Haha, oh man, I totally fail at Science.
Also, listen to that song
okay? It's cool. Also listen to Binary by braveSaintSaturn. Best songs ever.

So yesterday I saw Army of Freshmen, Never Heard of It and The Aquabats (!) live at Liverpool Carling Academy 2.
The venue was really small and the amount of people there didn't even break 100. Me, Wee Adam, Paul and Matt got at the front. I made some new friends... Craig, Halo... Some other people I don't remember. Craig and Halo kept playing with my socks and stroking Paul's hair. Weirdos. Also, Craig is a girl she just didn't tell me her real name.
Army of Freshmen played first and were pretty cool, as soon as they finished Matt ran off to buy their EP from the Merch table. They reminded me of Roper simply because of the synth. And we did a sing-a-long with them.
NHoI were the second support act... Not THAT good. But they were okay. They were really energetic which is what was good, I just don't enjoy their music... Their guitarist had a really half-assed mullet but had THE TIGHTEST PANTS I HAVE EVER SEEN. I wish we had a camera. We spoke to some of NHoI after the show and they're cool guys. One actually came up and started speaking to us because he liked Wee Adam's Reel Big Fish shirt. So I told him to listen to Five Iron Frenzy. C'mon. Bound to happen. He said he would try and as he was walking away he reassured me that he remembered the band name. He turned around and said "Five Iron Frenzy, yeah?" and I said "Yeah!". Such pretty boys. We talked to another member of NHoI outside when we were waiting for Matt's dad and we talked to him about how American food is nicer than English food and some other cool stuff... We did have a brief chat with the singer, but nothing important was said, we just bought their CD for half price and got it signed.
Then the Aquabats came on! They did this cool prologue thing at the start introducing the band and they came on stage and blasted straight into Fashion Zombies. In my opinion they were alot better than Reel Big Fish, or any other band I've seen live. If you're familiar with the Aquabats, you'll know that they are superheroes... I knew this... But when they had a fight on stage it was a real surprise and I was in stitches. They are hilarious. First Money Man came out and threatened to destroy us with his TEN PENCE PIECE but MC Bat Commander was too powerful and defeated him... But later in the show HE RETURNED with his minion... Cobra Man (Who looked absolutely hilarious!). But MC Bat Commander was no match for Cobra Man but when the Aquabats worked as a team they defeated him... They charmed him off-stage with a wicked sax solo. The set was pretty cool and I sang all of the songs word for word, but they didn't play ANY of the 3 songs I wished they would play. But whatever, I still had alot of fun. They were really energetic and put on a great show and involved everyone and when I wasn't jumping around to songs I was in stitches from the hilarity they produced. We even sat down before the last 2 songs and sang "Give Peace a Chance" and MC Bat Commander told us how he gained 20 pounds in the U.K. just from eating Jaffa Cakes. Awesome.
Also, it was Crash McLarson's birthday! (He's the bassist of the Aquabats if you don't know) And we all sang a heart-felt happy birthday song for him and told us it was the best birthday he had ever had. Aw.
I can't WAIT until they return... This was their first time in Liverpool, too... So I hope they had a good time so they come back.
I only regret not having a camera. So many amazing memories... Oh, and also that I got a guitar pick but it FELL OUT OF MY POCKET ! Oh well.
