Do Muse have some kind of contract deal with Doctor Who Confidential? Last week they used Time Is Running Out (one of my favourite songs and now all I can think of is Doctor Who - guess that's why my MC's started to look a bit like David Tennant in my mind), and it prompted me to check up on what I owned and what I didn't with regard to them. ...Don't ask about that, I was way behind. And now I'm not, so when in DWC they did a bit about the scarecrows, I was totally au fait with the song they played. Knights of Cydonia by, ooh, Muse.

It's an awesome song though. Didn't know Matt Bellamy was a big conspiracy theorist and whatnot, although you can totally tell from Black Holes And Revelations. I'm sure one of those songs ('Take A Bow') is about Tony Blair, and we won't even get into the 'Exo-Politics' lyrics ("When the Zetas fill the skies, will our leaders tell us why / it's just our leaders in disguise") or the actual ones to 'Knights of Cydonia' ("How can we win when a fool can be king?").

Starlight is one of my favourite songs now though. Makes me think about my villain so much.

Which is good, because I know buggerall about him other than song association. Woo!

Now five days to go. \o/

And I still have only the faintest of plots. \o/

Doctor Who Confidential has a lot to answer for when it comes to commandeering my favourite songs / songs I was intending to use for Script Frenzy.

Can anyone recommend British bands in the vein of Muse / Maximo Park / Kaiser Chiefs / Manic Street Preachers / Mika? I need to get into the spirit, since there's only 10 days left before I have to shoehorn sullen, bitter MC into a two-hour movie. And why are most British bands these days hijacking the M section of your local music store?

As to Muse themselves, I've ordered their last two CDs. I can't believe Origin of Symmetry was made in 2001... I feel so old. I remember getting that CD like it was yesterday.

At least I'm starting to understand my MC more. How I'm going to cram him into a movie is another matter.

But I think I like him, which is most important.

My Eurovision CD arrived today! \o/

Some of the songs are quite a surprise. That frenetic and insane French one performed by the Right Said Fred lookalikes? It's actually good. O_o

I don't think any amount of studio work can do anything for our attempt though...
