Yes, this would be Pachelbel's Canon in D. As in, the Canon, by Johann Pachelbel, which was written in D Major. Why would you play the Canon in D in a different key? That's like playing the Tacotta in F. Or one of Bethoven's Accordian Sonata's. How about doing selected scenes from Mozart's "The Magic Sock"? Or even his "A Little Music for that Time in the Midafternoon When Nothing's on TV and You Can't Figure Out What to Do."

It doesn't make any goddam sense.

No, it doesn't. It doesn't make sense at all, especially since D is a relatively easy key to play in. But yeah, I've played it in a few different quartets, and remember doing it once in G. I also had a piano version that was transposed (presumably because it was easier to play) into C. People like to do that, for some reason. I think they have too much note paper, and need some way of filling it up.

Going to see Muse locally for $18 in three weeks:

Stockholm Syndrome / Ruled By Secrecy

Still not have picked up any albums of theirs earlier than Absolution:

Lazy / I lack initiative

I picked up their first album just as the second was being hyped. I think I've listened to it twice. Oh dear me.

Hah, I am listening to Muse right now. Imagine that. I really like Stockholm Syndrome and Ruled by Secrecy, the two songs Lethe used as his scoring mechanismos. I have Absolution, is there another album worth getting (for example, one with Hypermusic and Plug in Baby)?

Yeah, that's Origin of Symmetry, which is better than Absolution.

It is easily their best album.

Is that good babbling or bad babbling because, based on the trailer, I really want to see this.

And I'd rather not do any bad babbling.

That's generally what I've heard from most of the people I know who didn't like crap like Daredevil or Underworld.

I liked it, and I hated Daredevil... haven't seen underworld though.

It's just a fun movie with some interesting action.

You mean apart from the amazing '60s Truffaut film?

Hullaballo is a bit hit 'n' miss too. It's OoS live, with other stuff. I say, buy OoS and extensively sample the others before purchase.

Actually, it was just an hour or so of drunken babbling after watching the movie. Bad for my company, but fine for me.
It's not really the type of movie I usually watch, but I did like it.
