Austin pubicity is starting to kick in. Here's a 5 minute radio piece that's been running today on our NPR station KUT:

For the record, the guy who DID get hit tried very hard to get Daniel to throw a cup of boiling hot coffee on me not long before the incident in question. Told him that the existence of Not Daniel Johnston was a threat to him, then stuck the mug iun

Not that I'm saying he deserved it, but personally I wonder what the person might have been saying or doing leading up to the moment of the assault.

They laughed when I sat down at the piano.
They didn't think that I could play.
But their laughter turned to amazement,
When I got back up and carried it away...

I went to the benefit screening last night.  It was the second time I'd seen the movie, the other being at sxsw.  That movie is great.

Howdy HowdyHow,

You spent $25 to see a movie you've already seen when you could have waited 3 days and see it at regular price so I just wanted to take the time to say THANK YOU. You contributed to a very worthwhile and important cause and that deserves to be noted here.

It was a nice event with a good crowd, good food, good vibes and good questions afterwards. The thing that struck me last night after seeing the film for the first time in over a year was that Daniel is one of the lucky ones. So many people are afflicted with mental illness who do not have the things going for them that Daniel has. They don't all have loving family and friends. Nor do many of them have record deals and fancy art gallery shows. Not everyone deserves the latter two the way Daniel does but that's not the point here.  Events like last night's benefit for the patients of Austin State Hospital go a long way towards helping those who aren't as "lucky" as Daniel.  I put the word "lucky" in quotation marks because it doesn't quite feel like the appropriate word when describing Daniel but hopefully y'all know what I mean.

Some of the money raised last night will go directly towards buying art supplies for patients. So thanks again Howdy. Many people appreciate it.

Thank you Jeff. You look very different than what I pictured. I suppose that's not surprising.
Thanks again.

Here's the Channel 8 News coverage.á

Unintentionally cool was where the voiceover said the word "story' and it came out real long like "staur-rie", right exactly as the 8mm film spot of Laurie came up onscreen.

Were you using the moniker not daniel johnston back then, when the other manager was hit in the head, and you almost got hot coffee thrown on you.
