Title: The Life in Vain video
Post by: wickedwill on August 08, 2004, 03:24:01 PM
I just seen that video and it was a pretty good video! Too bad Mtv never showed it because i do believe it would had made a difference, at the least increasing his fanbase a bit more! Oh well Mtv sucks just as bad now as it did then. If you do get a chance to watch it,do so its pretty cool. I'm gonna go watch it again!!!! :D

Yes very good video.  Actually it's the first muisc video I've ever seen Dan do.  Has he made any others?

Never released? Both "December Blues" and "Big Big World" are fully-realized clips conceptualized by Daniel himself, and they used to run regularly on Austin public access. I believe I've seen them on the Austin Music Network recently as well, and one of them, I'm pretty sure, was the video that MTV ran on 120 Minutes back in 1986/87...

  - Not Daniel

(AMN has also regularly shown several solo clips taken from a live set of 6 or 7 seven songs Daniel performed on Andy Langer's local music show back in the late 1990s. I don't know if you wanna include those as proper "videos" or not. I do know that they include "Live and Let Die" as well as his medley and most of the standard set from that time period.)


Title: Stupid damn site.
Post by: dsulpy on August 16, 2004, 04:29:54 PM
Damn stupid site insists on Netscape 4.2 for a Mac ... I don't use Netscape, and downloaded it, and they're up to 7.1, and the thing STILL wants 4.2, so a pox on them, I say. Any computer geeks out there who can capture this and upload it to the videos section?

And that infamous MTV clip would be great to see, too!

As a matter of fact, ANYTHING would be great to see (or hear!) considering nothing's appeared since April... :-<

That video is awesome, I'd never seen that before.

thanks for the link!!!


Title: Capturing the video
Post by: dejected on August 19, 2004, 01:12:45 PM
I've tried to capture that video, but they are using some funky java script to stream it to your browser / media player, so it doesn't save as a file.

We'll work on getting it digitized from another source.

Title: story about the mtv video
Post by: guest on March 04, 2005, 05:12:19 AM
now i might not be remembering this story correctly, it was years ago danny told me about this - but he didn't have very much creative control of that video and didn't seem to care much for it - and when it was all done mtv or atlantic or whatever sent him a bill for it!
does anybody know if that is true?
most of it looks more like a calvin klein ad than a danny video if'n you ask me. the intro rules.

There was no "bill" and she was not a "real vampire". Don't believe everything you hear and read.

Now, now, Devil-sauce! The phrase was "real vampire girl" like in the Jonathan Richman song, for instance - which basically means the same as "Goth girl". That sounds like a pretty reasonable description of Heather Stogsdill, as I recall.

Say, speaking of things to read, I just stumbled across this in Keith Ayres' "Local Notes" column in an old (December 1986) Glitch News zine:

"MTV's 'Cutting Edge' program will air Daniel Johnston's video 'Hard Times'. The Rhythm Rats perform with Daniel in this video shot on location at one of the band member's home (sic). The scheduled date is Sunday, December 28, and the show begins at 9:30. The video was produced by Randy Kemper."

S'funny -- "Hard Times" is the only song from the Dan/Rats EP that I DON'T remember ever seeing a video for! Daniel showed me a long (60 minutes?) tape packed with GREAT video stuff shot and edited by Kemper, back when Dan was living in that apartment around 41st or thereabouts. That would be worth releasing, at least as part of a larger DVD package or whatever - not that I'm all that fond of Randy personally (mostly because of that one day when he kept trying to get Daniel to throw scalding hot coffee on me...)

  - Not Daniel

(Say, what I was gonna email you, I might as well ask here: I have an old tape from the pre-Stress days, called the "Two-In-One" with both Hi, HAY? and Yip/JM jammed onto one Certron LN-90. I've never seen another copy of this particular combo, and I was wondering if anyone else remembers seeing one or has one. Just curious - it's such an odd item that it's always made me wonder. The cover is a Xerox with shrunken copies of the two original tape covers, plus the phrase "Two In One".)

pardon me, sir. i do stand corrected.
the hard times video was cool too, i thought it was filmed at the cactus cafe though. it has daniel walking across tables and doing some hilarious rock n roll posturing, like doing some billy idol type punching in the air and stuff. but it was late and i was drunk so what would i know.

oh yeah, why hasn't anybody said anything about john cale backing daniel on "marching guitars" next week at the awards? that's gonna be rad.

Is that Matthew McConahey(i can't spell his name) in the Life in Vain video. It looks just like him and i know he is from Austin, Texas. He seems like the type of guy that would be in a DJ video too...this is the same guy who had the police come to his house because he was buck naked playing bongos at 3 am keeping his neighbors awake. If it's true it would explain a lot about the video. It's not so much a calvin klein ad as it is an actor who may have been a fan and wanted to be in the video...it's not his fault he happens to look like a model. The problem is he wasn't famous at the time...if he was the video might have gotten more publicity.
