Thankyou loads, D. Sulpy. I am utterly indebted to you. I am overwhelmed. I already had a couple of tracks taken from this, and now I have the whole show. Cheers, buddy

In reference to the song:

i was guilt stricken
to go away
she turned w/out saying
i could not stay
and all the while
she was smiling at me
like i was a show
on her tv

I've seen a couple of posts that ask what this song is, and evidently no one out there knows. I conclude that it has never been released in any other format than the ten seconds worth of it that exists in the 'Devil and Daniel Johnston' film. I think that it is unearthly beautiful and really want to hear the rest of it. General public, can you devise some kind tearful pleas until he does.  cry

I wasn't expecting much, but that was literally amazing. I've never seen animation done like that either. It was 'lo-fi' in the best possible way. I thought it was funny, if funny is the right word, how you interpreted the 'showing the scars on their arm' and they are seen to be self-harming. Self-harm NOT funny, cartoon self-harm in an unexpected context IS funny, by virtue of it being unexpected. The drawings of the workers on their fifteen minute break was brilliant. Esp the guy with the glasses and the long hair kicking his leg.

Sucks to be Nardwuar. Daniel should have lamped him.

1990 is my favourite Daniel Johnston record of all. Right down to the front cover, and the smug, harrowed expression on his face. What's that painting all about? With the storm in the background and the truncated tree. I think it visually depicts the unique mood of this album in a way that really helps gain some insight into it. The song Tears Stupid Tears contaisn my favourite single Daniel Johnston lyric, 'I was born in the body and right from the start those tears stupid tears being tearing us apart.' I juxtapose it with Daniel singing 'I really don't know why I cam here' on Walking the Cow. Daniel Johnston is so effortlessly existential. He seems to be able to sing about the traumatic core of life as easy as he breathes.

FEAR YOURSELF is my favourite. Mountain Top, Fish, and Living it For the Moment are three vital Daniel Johnston tracks. His lyrics are great on this album, and they come in torrents. The instumentation is far from subtle, but I think that works great on this album. It's expansie and hectic, and special mention to the stringed instument on Living it for the Moment.

Hi. First of all I want to tell you that I MET Daniel Johnston, I accosted him outside a venue that he was playing at on Brighton seafront [UK] on November the 1st of this year and I shook his hand when he was having a cigarette, and he was really nice, and the gig was awesome. SECOND, I want to know anything at all that anybody out there knows about anythign conncted with the 'Daniel Johnston Hour,' which evidently is some kind of radio show that he particpated in. I've heard it, and the songs on it which include apparently songs that are exclusive to it. It's got the greatest version of Speeding Motorcycle, in my opinion, that I ever heard, and Daniel is singing down a phone with the band in the studio; it's got a version of True Love that Will Find You in the End which is funny, and ends with weird spangly piano and beautiful, soaring, spiritual what-not. The exclusive songs are 'Spinning Globe,' and 'Tonight in Your Dreams.' They are very strange, lyrically very arresting, double-tracked vocal affairs, and I would LOVE to hear alternate versions of them. I bet such versions don't exist. Somebody tell me that they do.
