Q:"Now you're more famous, do you think you're more likely to be kidnapped by aliens?"
Matt:"Dom has actually been abducted by aliens. But he's done research and found out that it's actually something called sleep paralysis."
Dom:"It's when you're extremely tired - you go to bed and you fall asleep but you suddenly think you're awake and you can't move. You're effectively paralysed in bed. And often what's associated with that is a weird presence in the room."
Matt:"Tell him about the little goblins."
Dom:"I've seen little goblins running around at the bottom of my bed. I've been dragged out of my bed... So there are extreme cases where people do feel like they've been abducted by aliens. But really they're just suffering from sleep paralysis. But I've certainly, honestly, experienced it, so I'm comfortable that it's not actually alien abduction. I didn't wake up with a sore bum."
Matt:(excitedly) "I'm so glad someone else has taken over that role in the band. I hope you know I'm not the fucking weird one now."
“Today, Muse’s mad scientist Matt Bellamy turns 36. Happy Birthday, Matt. In a world of cookie-cutter, cliche-driven rock stars, it’s refreshing to still have a frontman as imaginative and bat-shit mental as you.”—Gigwise (via sherlockmuse)
