I'm new, I'm a true fan.

Daniel Johnston was introduce to me by my daughter one day with a phone call.
She said "write this down...The Devil and Daniel Johnston" then went on to say she had just seen the film and I would want to see it. That note sat on my desk for three months before I heard his voice for the first time. We were driving along the Oregon coast, I flipped through her CDs and ran across Daniel Johnston, poped it in and was at the edge of my seat. We listened to that CD twice and I can't believe we came home without one. We did come home singing Daniel's songs. Once at home I couldn't wait to get my own CDs. wOw. I'm hooked.

So... I'm new, please be nice to me. :p

Thanks for the welcome.
You should get a prize for being the 25th viewer of this thread.

It was "Welcome to my World" That she had.

Don't Let The Sun Go Down On Your Grievances and Speeding Motorcycle
were the two songs that stuck in my head. Those were the two that kept
running through my mind until I could get my own music.

Speeding Motorcycle was so familiar to me I was sure I remembered it from
a Target commercial, I just knew I had heard it before. I don't know but that's
maybe how Daniel's work gets under your skin. You hear it, and by the second time
you listen to it, it becomes part of you. There is something so different and unique
that you either get it or you snicker and move on.

Are your kids fans of Daniel too?

Yes! Welcome here and to Daniel's world.

Was your daughter already a fan of his music, or did she come to know about Daniel through the film as well? Whatever one can say about the film, at least it is a doorway into Daniel's music, and that can only be a good thing.

I'm sure you'll soon be exploring the vast and still uncharted landscape of Daniel's World. Keep us posted!

...pleased to meet you Henry Long.

Is your signature your own quote?
"Although there's a darkness, love balances chaos."-HL
It is multi-layered and beautiful.

i don't believe my daughter was a Daniel Johnston fan before the showing of the film.
With my child I really don't know, she has a different style to her music listening.
Where when I get something new I will play it over and over and over
until I am anticipating the next next song on the CD, she wil listen
once or twice and tuck the music away to assure she will not tire of it.

TDaDJ never did come to a theatre near me, I had to wait for it to come out on DVD,
that day, it was in my mail box from Netflix. The film was a wonderful vehicle to reach
people that otherwise wouldn't have found their way. Me, me, me.

BTW: I am a good customer of Daniel Johnston's web store and purchased two copies
of the DVD, one to keep and one to share. I purchased "the book of Daniel" as I like to call it
And, if at all possible order my CDs from there also.

Oh boy, oh boy, oh boy, another voice heard from.
I replied to your Sonic Burger thread,
but I'm trying not to let the manic-me show too much.

It's nice to be able to talk to Daniel Fans, and friends,
I've not found any in my daily routine...tho I did get a page
from a magazine mailed to me. (from someone that knows I'm a fan)
It was written by Jeremiah Griffey, a review of a meeting with
Daniel before an in-store appearance at L.A.'s Amoeba Records.

I googled to see if I could find it on line but did not find it.
I'm sure everyone here is so in-the-know that you've already seen it.

I'm going now, to stand in the corner and say Daniel Johnston,
Daniel Johnston, Daniel Johnston.

Does anyone know when Daniel did the 
in-store appearance at L.A.'s Amoeba Records?
It was after the film came out but there is no date
or even any indication as to what publication this
page came out of. I'm sure it was a free Magazine.

It's just fun to run across something that I've not see before written up on Daniel.

*back to my corner*

The Amoeba show was on May 4, 2006.  He also played Spaceland that evening.  My first and only time seeing him - and just in time... I moved out of LA a month later.  Now I'm waiting for him to come to Minneapolis.

Welcome to the board!

OMG!
I am waiting for him to come to MPLS!
The closest spot I've seen is a show scheduled for Chicago in May.

Thanks for the welcome.
Come sit in this corner with me and
we can send MPLS VIBES together to Texas.

I almost forgot *thumbs up* for the information on the L.A. Amoeba/Spaceland visit.
Lucky Zach gettin' in on that!

A belated welcome as well smiley.

You're a lucky man. I keep at it, but my daughter doesn't like Daniel's music! Yes. I hate to admit it, but there it is. It could be worse, though - my other daughter doesn't like ANY music except hard trance. Ugh!

*waves* @ D

Doesn't it make you wonder what the common thread is that runs through Daniel Fans?
Dad and daughters, it could be that "what does dad know!" business.

And maybe it's slowing down long enough to pay attention. I've always liked listening to the college radio station while some of my friends just want the old familiar songs that are in the top of the charts. Some people want background music that they can talk over, sing along when it comes to the chorus and don't want to take the time to explore something new music wise.

Maybe it's something magical.

To create mere music isn't enough anymore in today's music industry......society seems to
be searching for something sacred.......a religious experience MINUS the misconceptions and MIND CONTROL of organized religion...the last church I went to said I had
Demons! evil honest Injun! Crazy bunch of cretins!

Yeah I have been in trouble for my ummm "behavior" a few (dozen) times and I know what the inside of a Jail looks like,but nobody's perfect although Murphy's law seems to kick in at the worst possible moment (gee, maybe I am cursed?)

Did you know window puppets are Illegal in New York?

OK what was the subject again??
