Had to Check the Calendar
On the radio this morning, thought I was listening to a Neil Young satire ("...come knocking at your door, you don't love me no more."). Was it April 1? No! A documentary on the world's most self absorbed indie musician, Daniel Johnston, 42 and living with his parents: "NPR : 'Devil and Daniel Johnston' Indulges Singer's Fans: "A new documentary follows Indie singer-song writer Daniel Johnston's decline into mental illness. It combines standard documentary fare with Johnston's own recordings, taped over the course of 20 years. Los Angeles Times and Morning Edition critic Kenneth Turan reviews The Devil and Daniel Johnston."
