I was just browing youtube recently and noticed how much daniel johnston stuff there is now compared to a while ago,
I was just wondering are there any other ways of tracking Daniels popularity, like album sales, and is this data available?
It seems here in Ireland more and more people are coming up to me and recognizing my Hi, HOW ARE YOU t-shirt.
4  General Discussion / Fan Forums / Amsterdam and Brussels gig review on: April 17, 2007, 07:05:38 PM
I just got back to Ireland today from my trip to Amsterdam and Brussels to see Daniel live for the first time, and boy was it worth it. In Amsterdam he played in a very small but packed venue and rather large sold out, packed venue in brussels, and he played for a good 50 minutes to an hour at each, He talked a lot more at the amsterdam gig probably because it was a lot smaller, He played a great set, some on his own and others accompanied by a band caled Smut Fish his setlist included from both gigs: rock this town, hey joe, true love(on piano), devil town and funeral home, love enchanted, fish, speeding motorcycle, go, living life, rock and roll EGA worried shoes, casper and some others that i heard for the first time. It was amazing to be right on front of the stage, He wasnt as nervous as i thought he would be, and still had the perforemers instinct. when the brussels gig was over the crowd all sang devil town over and over, about 10 times. A dream come true. Still buzzing from seeing my idol preform live from 2 metres away.

P.S in the lyrics for Rock this town, he changed "Paul Mcartney is dead" to what i think but am not sure was "Mabel Johnston is dead" and i was concerned to know if this was true or not?

If you are so engrossed in the so-called square world that you think you need to take chemicals to to release yourself from it, don't you think it might be better actually trying to work out why you are so psychologically bonded to those things, which are actually not realities. If you have all these hangups, why can't you just say, "hey, I'll put them to one side for one moment"?
 

Well it's seems that people on these personal forums seem pretty presumptious and stereotypical. The fact is it was my only time ever taking lsd and ketamine, and i dont plan on taking them again. For a once off experience as experiences go, for me it was well worth the risk. Reality is what you make of it. Sargeant Pepper's lonely hearts club band. If it doesnt open up our brain explain the links between autistic children with an incredible capacity for, memory and creativy and the effects of drugs. Drink is the biggest killer, personally i think anyone who indulges in such a pleasure is a buffoon, but what would i know, I'm just a drugged up junkie.

Jesus this not a forum for discussing the pro's and cons of drugs, i was simply saying i had the most memorable splendid and lovely time listening to daniel johnston whilst on drugs, and only making a suggestion to any other fellow daniel lovers who are willing to take risks in life, to share the experience. i never claimed that i took drugs to make me more creative, although it most scientifically does, whence on drugs, parts of your brain are opened which are usually shut down thanks to their lack of use, because we live in such a square world where cars have 4 wheels. anyway on lsd i had no ego, i was completey detached from any need to impress when i sang i sang from deep within in my subconscious, my true self/spirit. My friends enjoyed the performance and thats all tat mattered to me. i Think before people start ranting about people who take drugs they should first accept and consider the fact people have different expectations from life, mine for example is not explore it thoroughly, i am an explorer and a lover of the world and all it's 11 dimensions. Like with grand theft auto, once you have completed the4 game it';s fun to mess around with the cheats.
i love |Daniel Johnstons music, he has helped sculpt who i am. And i am eternally gratefull.

"only a very stable and positive mind" ketamine mixed with acid and ecstasy? Sounds real stable. Don't you have a job or anything to do during the day?

yeh i agree that is very judgemental, i am young and youthfull and i am in college working hard on a music degree, experimenting with my minds creativity and potential is completely relevant and beneficial. My mind is stable, i couldn't be happier, life is about taking risks and experiencing new things, i respect my body completely i meditate, eat well and practice yoga. Drugs gets a lot of bad press because of negative people like you.

Well, it's just an opinion. I do drugs too, I just think it's something personal. Also, I wish I had a penny for every drug user that fancies himself an artist and or musician.  Usually, these people are marginally talented, but use their inclination towards getting high as a reconciliation/excuse to further their lifestyle. I think that's fine, but I don't understand why they have to use "art" as the conduit. Besides, I AM Judgemental Jones.

Can I hear a sample of some of your music? YouTube is a good way to get that out.

I dont write music on drugs, im not even a regular drug user, i was simply giving an account of listening to daniel on acid and ketamine,

As for my music, Its mostly electronic and ive only been at it a year, the emphasis in my music to keep things very simple, like daniel i use simple chord progression and really try to keep the song well basically simple. I dont claim to be good yet, but i do enjoy my own music, which is very important. I am starting to write some daniel johnstonesque songs these days, as soon as i write one that im really proud of, il let all you guys know.

If you want a taste my music, i have a music video of a song i made last summer in 45minutes, i made the video with my friend in 1hr aswell. It has become infamous for some strange reason in my college, worth checking out if you wanted to see childish side of me.

its under: stupid electronics-bovine on youtube, let me know what you think

Not that Daniel Johnston's music and art isn't spectacular on it's own, but yesterday i had the most amazing daniel johnston experience whilst on an Acid, Ketamine and Ecstasy trip. It felt like i was in heaven King Weasel, Nothing, Walking the cow, I remember painfully came to life in way that is unimaginable. it was like heaven, Music of the Gods, The music just encapsulated me like a 5th dimension, His music was inside me, and when i started to look at his art that i have plastered all over my wall, his characters came to life in the most playfull and dramtic way Jermiah never danced so welll! Its well worth a try, But like daniel acid isnt for everyone, only a very stable and positive mind in a safe environment can handle such a drug, so be careful if you plan taking Daniel to the next level.

13  General Discussion / Fan Forums / Re: Turning people onto Daniel Johnston on: January 27, 2007, 06:42:59 PM
yeh im becoming very weary of becoming annoying due to the fact that im always talking about daniel johnston to people, trying to let them in on the secret to having a life changing experience.I bought my family each a copy of TDADJ for christmas.  But most people i know just dont get daniel, which is a little depressing because i always imagined having the type of friends that would like daniel. Through my endless efforts of promoting daniel it is clear that he is not for everyone. THese days I can tell if a person i just met, if he will like daniel after just a few sentences, and if thought they wouldnt, i'd tell them anyway.  Ive hit a few home runs but not as many as i would have liked.
But my favourite one was at a family party a few months ago. I asked my uncle who i knew had a good taste in music had he ever heard of daniel johnston. He said he hadnt and was skeptical when i told him he was the greatest singer song writer alive today. He asked me to play his best song on my i-pod to convince me. After about 4 minutes i finally decided upon 'story of an artist', although i dont consider it his best song i think its his most communicative for a once of listening .I gave him my i-pod and after 'listen up and il tell a story' kicked in he took off the earphones and said;
 " i hate using earphones but thats the best music ive ever heard, where has he been all my life".

I felt like a humanitarian.
