Pieces of Life: Geeks on Late Night TV Edition

I’m a big fan girl when it comes to Kevin Rose and Alex Albrecht, for the Muse they are the true dynamic duo. Watching them together brings back great memories of The Screen Savers which in turn makes me think of the great ways that I plan on herding up a bunch of geeks and torching the G4 building one day!


The moral of today’s story is you can re-live your geeky days of youth and see Kevin and Alex outside of Revision3 broadcasting today!

Jump ahead for the deets.

So check it. Kevin and Alex are going mainstream tonight and are making a guest starring appearance on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. If you’re a follower you prob already caught the eppy of Jimmy being the first “official” guest star on a Diggnation eppy who’d think you’d see Kevin, Alex, and of all people, Jimmy Fallon together!? But tis true….see it below.

I think Jimmy is a really funny guy but I haven’t yet seen his show as the word is out it’s a nap but of course I got my Tivo all set for a record to see Kevin and Alex on the show. Could be the fan girl speaking but I think Kevin and Alex are amazingly funny so I’m looking forward to seeing their antics on late night TV.

The moral of the story is if you’re a fan you’ll want to catch the guys on Jimmy Fallon tonight. Deets for the time are below!

I’m looking forward to seeing how it goes!

Pieces of Life: The Sims Edition

So OMFGBBQWTF! The fact that EA Games continues to bundle it’s games with SecuROM totally rips into the Muse but if that wasn’t enough guess what else they are doing now!?

Check it.

Not only do they bundle games with SecuROM but now they pushed the release date for The Sims 3 from February to freaking June! I may be dead by then dude!

I dunno what’s worst….the delayed release or the bloody SecuROM!

Give me a shoulder I need to cry.

Hold me.

Apologies, back to our regularly scheduled cosmetic musings….

Pieces of Life: The Monday Morning Edition

Morning guys!

Happy Monday! Oh my god tis like the Monday from hell! Was so hard dragging my butt out of bed this morning after having so many days off. I swear the last few days have been so completely relaxing! I’m always running around doing this, that, and the other thing and never have enough free time to just sit down and veg! The last few days I did just that. Total vegetable. It was so lovely. I caught up on a few books I’ve been meaning to read, played stupid amounts of WoW, watched a slew of geeky flicks with my mate Martin (we generally have the same retarded taste in sci-fi films one of which was Capricorn One circa before James Brolin became Barbra Streisand’s b*tch…what? I love Barbra but we all know she has James on lock down!), and just really enjoyed doing absolutely nothing!

Jump ahead to read more about my Monday, the weekend, and what’s ahead at Musings!

Oh and I was really productive and stuff this weekend too so I did do other stuff that wasn’t in the realms of playing dead and acting like a veggie! Read on….

For the longest time my main ring tone was the Time Warp so I decided to change it this weekend. What? I’m still in Halloween mode I guess…sue me!

Check it and tell me whatcha think 😉

I also switched up the slider to play the sound of the Tardis launching! Loves it!

See? Told ya I was productive!

I have a slew of posts for you today including my Year End Favorites list, my New Year’s Resolution post, a giveaway or two, and a few other tricks up my sleeves so stay tuned! Oh which reminds me I know the past few days you haven’t seen many reviews but don’t worry those are coming along too and we’ll be back to cosmetic nirvana shortly!

I hope everyone had an amazing weekend and you’re back on the “back to work” bandwagon! After a few diet cherry pepsis, some tea, and a bit of coffee the Muse promises you’ll be all awake and alert enough to deal with Monday morning!

Feel free to spread the cheer about your weekend and what you did, what you hauled, and any trouble you got into! My comment box is open and my eyes are listening!

xoxo <--------whoa how gossip girl of me!

The Regeneration of a Most Beloved Doctor

I find it funny that my inbox has over 100 e-mails in it that are labeled “Doctor Who” in subject. I also got a few comments already as well in regards…to yes you guessed it…the new Doctor.

With all these outcries to the Muse I thought that indeed the good Doctor deserved his very own post because honestly, the regeneration of our beloved 10th deserves that at the very least right?

I fear that I haven’t felt this badly about a regeneration since my fond favorite fourth Doctor, the great Tom Baker, regenerated into Peter Davidson. For a long time I resented Peter for taking away my girlhood crush, Tom Baker but I slowly came to love him.

So the Muse has a basic statement to release on the casting of the 11th Doctor.

Don’t Panic.

Yes, that’s it. Don’t Panic. Be a good hitchhiker and just don’t panic. If you’re a Who fan you’ve felt this way for every regeneration of every favorite Who in the last 30 years or more. We’ve all seen our favorites come and go. We’ve all mourned our favorites. I remember mourning Tom Baker, Peter Davidson, I even felt some remorse for the late, great William Hartnell. Believe it or not I became mighty attached to Christopher Eccleston as well and I thought it was god awful they were replacing him with David Tennant. Weird right?

We have something to look forward to right? Our Doctor’s personality will stay the same but with new traits and quirks. Yes, Matt Smith is virtually a no name but if you think about it David Tennant wasn’t exactly HUGE in the way of stardom either was he? At the moment Matt Smith (kinda ironic his last name is Smith…as in John Smith…) probably isn’t our top pick for the Doctor but he’s young, he’s fairly good looking, and who knows (who knows..pun intended) he may be the next best thing to David.

I think we should all remain calm and hope for the best. I have confidence that the writers will bring us a fantastic Doctor and although I mourn the loss of David I do embrace the idea of a brand new Doctor. I think David shows alot of class to pass the torch and not milk the “brand” that Doctor Who has become for all it’s worth. I think he recognized the fact that things can get old really fast and he wanted to be remembered as a great Doctor rather than a washed up Doctor. So cheers to David for making a hard choice to disembark the Tardis and make room for a new Doctor.

Chin up Who fans! We’ll be fine. We should be more worried over the fact that Catherine Zeta Jones might board the Tardis next season….now THAT worries me! You do know that she and the hub come as a package?


There, there now. Group hug!
