I'd like to see this community get a little bigger maybe at least semi-frequent posts. I dont think I can do it myself, anyone care to take the reigns a bit?

Stuey D Blogs Big Mind [Oct. 29th, 2005|09:03 am]

For those interested in the Big Mind process of Genpo Roshi, and/or for those who are fans of Stuart Davis, Stuart is doing a series in his blog where he notates his daily Big Mind dialogue/meditation. It's very interesting stuff.

Stuart's blog is here. It's also syndicated to LJ as stuart_davis.

Bethlehem Show [Aug. 15th, 2005|11:03 am]
Dharma Pop!

I finally got to meet Stuart at the show this last weekend: Bethlehem Brew Works in Bethlehem, PA on 8/13/2005. The show was amazing, and I loved the opportunity to finally hear him perform live and talk with him. He had a tremendous amount of energy and passion throughout the first set. The second set was somewhat more subdued, but still tremendous. I think that was partially the result of the influx of people from the outdoor music festival.

The street outside had been closed off for vendors and music acts, and all the people were walking around with these giant travel mugs which vendors would fill up with beer for $4. The outdoor stuff seemed to stop between Stuart's sets and all the drunken people filed into the bar where he was playing. The ambient noise/annoying behavior level went way up. Even sitting only a couple of feet away from him, and with the amplification equipment turned up, it became increasingly more difficult to lose myself in his music. Not that it stopped those of us who were there to listen from digging everything he was laying down.

He was also playing yesterday on the street stage, but that was a "family-friendly" venue. He encouraged all of us to come back the next day, and most people said they would. Unfortunately, I couldn't stay up there for two days. In talking with him, he agreed that if you had to make it to one of the shows, the Saturday show was probably the better choice of the two.

In exciting news, Stuart said that he would be making another tour soon in which he hits several big cities throughout the northeast. So those of us who never get the chance to see him will finally have several opportunities.

Anyway, I wanted to share the set-list for the night in case anyone is interested. He performed two sets, each with 10 songs. He did lots of new songs from the upcoming album, and I am definitely planning to get my copy as soon as possible. I can't believe with as many albums as he's made that his art just keeps getting better!

Set 1:
Anesthesia Necrophilia
Good Weird
What (which he introduced as the 100th name of God)
Voodoo Dolls
Innocent Three-way
Sugar Bullets
Doppelganger Body Donor

Set 2:
Nothing In Between
Savoring Samsara
Sexy Messiah
+Dharma -Drama
Parker Posey
Dirty Purity
Universe Communion

Stuart Davis Live DVD/CD [Apr. 11th, 2005|09:15 am]
Dharma Pop!

Does anyone know what the status is for the Stuart Davis Live DVD/CD project? Volume 1 was supposed to be released over the winter, but now I only hear talk about his new studio album and never anything about this. Is this still being released? I didn't know if anyone out there had heard something at a concert or some such.

Oh, and I'm way psyched that he finally announced a show relatively close in PA. It's a long time to wait, but I'm really looking forward to it.

Stu rarities on my Radio.Blog [Dec. 8th, 2004|01:04 pm]
Dharma Pop!

I did this so one of my friends could hear, but I though the rest of you might appreciate it also. My Radio.Blog currently contains Stuart rarities to listen to. In no particular order:

  • Only Changing Drugs - one of the few songs he wrote early in his career that he'll still acknowledge. This particular version is from a 1994 concert with a full band.
  • I Need - ditto
  • Universe Communion - ditto
  • I Want You - a studio cover of the Elvis Costello tune, from the mp3-only album Davis Does Elvis
  • The Other End of the Telescope - ditto
  • Sugar Bullets - a demo version that is quite different from the version he plays now
  • Elizabeth Ascends - the only "official" recording of this song is live, and this is a studio demo version
  • Transpersonal Cowboy - a song there isn't an "official" recording of yet
  • Seeker Assassin - ditto
  • Angel With Two Backs - ditto
  • Mandalas of the Mind - ditto
  • Love Causes Cancer - ditto
  • Immanence - a bootleg live recording
  • Evil White Man - a song written by his friend Joel Sayles of Hindu Rodeo, recorded on some radio show
  • Dead Skunk - a silly little thing he used to do live quite often

Hi! [Nov. 28th, 2004|11:32 pm]

[music |Vanilla Pod - Dead End Town]

Oh wow. There's a community for Stu geeks. I'm so happy.

Hi, my name is Dieter. I started going to Stu shows in Iowa City, IA ages ago...just before Kid Mystic was released. I recently relocated to Madison, WI, and Stu doesn't seem to come here nearly as often as he goes to Iowa, which makes me sad. I think I'd have a really hard time living in a part of the country that Stu hardly ever goes to. Like Alabama or something. Has Stu ever done a show in Alabama? I doubt it.
