I knew some people who worked directly with him and they told me his health was failing significantly. his last tour was basically a farewell because he was most likely going to die. now he has.RIP
terrible voice, no loss
reminder that Roky Erikson got a sticky, the last recent death to be stickied actually.https://rbt.asia/mu/thread/88111534
>>90065381we gettin somewhere
Finally got around to listening to 1990 a couple months ago and I immediately saw what the “hype” was about and recorded some of his albums to tape, where they’ll live on forever. Thanks for the touching meaningful music Daniel, RIP
dang, ever since Roky I was nervous about this happening, did not expect it this soonRIP in pieces
>>90065407wtf i thought he was looking better than ever he was just dying?

>>90065152Did he die a virgin?
Fuck. This actually makes me really sad. One of my favorite songwriters
>>90065564>>90065616I remember reading something about him having a somewhat romantic relationship in the early 90s but his fear of temptation/sin/being condemned to hell for eternity caused him to distance himself.Hard to say especially considering his later years were quite private but if he did die a virgin he's in good company with Nick Drake
>>90065152NO HOLY SHIT WHAT THE FUCK I THOUGHT THIS WAS A TROLL IM FUCKING IM ACTUALLY ON THE VERGE OF TEARS WHAT THE FUCK
This sucks man. I wasn't that much of a fan but the dude got too much shit in life. But at least he spend his life doing what he enjoyed, music.F.
he died of a broken heart
THIS SHIT ISNT FAIR BROOOOOO WTF BROOOO

>>90065886Nah sticky incoming. The news hasn't even really broke yet. The catalog is also already shitted up with DJ threads.
did true love find him in the end?
>>90065886so what? mods are gay
>>90065775I don't mean any disrespect but this one was kind of clear to see, he had been ill for many years. Surprised he made it this far to be honest. RIP
>>90065883Are you illiterate? How did I spell his name wrong?
>>90066015No but no success found him on the terms he would have liked. He wanted to have #1 Billboard hits and be on the cover of Time Magazine. The fact that he received so much attention, and for lo-fi tapes he distributed largely by himself, is unbelievable. It's too bad he wasn't able to appreciate his success.
we now live in a post-daniel johnston world.
>>90066143That's mostly because his entire musical world revolved around The Beatles and that's a high bar to live up to.I think later on in life as his tours brought in bigger and bigger crowds he at least understood that lots of people loved him even if he didn't really grasp exactly the way in which his music affected them. And he made enough off of commercials, covers, and steady sales to live comfortably at least, though unfortunately he wasn't really able to take care of himself
I never got into him despite seeing Hi, How Are You? recommended a billion times in all the years I've browsed /mu/. Feels bad man, especially when he seems like the kinda thing I'd dig anyway. If I like Jason Molina, Bill Callahan, Dave Bixby etc, what record should I check out? I get the impression he's of that similar lo-fi, journalistic folk vein
FI genuinely think he was tortured by the thoughts in his head his entire life.At least it's over, if nothing else. Rest in power, DJ.
>>90065152damn this one hurts
https://youtu.be/bpIstydqvGkI am a baby in my universeI'll live foreverI am a baby in my universeI'll live forever
>>90066224he's way less journalistic and a lot more schizo, but in a genuine emotionally open kind of way I don't really feel a lot of artists have ever pulled offlisten to 1990
Damn I just watched that documentary a few months ago
somebody post the list of hacks who got stickies and actual talent who didnt get a sticky
>>90066224Hi how are you
i've lived in austin my whole lifealways thought he was just an austin memeinteresting to see he actually had fansF
My high school psychology teacher showed us his documentary in class. It really struck a nerve with me in his tortured yet beautiful soul.Rest easy, Daniel.
unironically pretty sad bros :(F
you realize he was just the CWC of his timekobain was a dickhead troll he fucked disabled chicks if he was born in the 90s he would be on 4chan.he thought it was funny.every one shills kobain as some like heartthrob nice guy but he was literally a bisexual theif and life troll. he probably didn't even love Courtney just liked the idea of fucking her fucked up vibe. 99% of the guys and girls that shill him if they met him would think he is lame as fuck and beneth them that is the kobain redpill.. he was cool thou but the way normies found home cool wasn't real.
Favorite Darling Girl is a GOAT songRIP
rest in peace. today is a sad day.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vb8s2vnmdhk>"And we're worried now we're running out of time"oh shit bros, just watch this and cry, this one hit hard.
I'm leaving this board if this doesn't get stickied.
>>90066309That doc made me cry years ago, I downloaded it again yesterday strangely enough.
Rest well Daniel, all the shit he went through was a necessity to show these posers on how one creates
>born in sacramento>moved to austinevery fucking time, i hate cali niggers
He may not have been a talented singer or instrumentalist and his lyrics weren't always deep, but regardless he was still artistically gifted. His lyrics were very poetic and charming in an innocent way. I loved this guy. F
>>90065152God fucking damn it hurts more than it should.
>>90066282Great pic. Rocking that 67 Brian Wilson haircut.
RIPDon'y know why this Tshirt guy is on /mu/ and not /fa/ though
>>90066639People seem to think that he was this talentless but charming guy, mentally ill, etc. but he had a real nack for melody and songwriting which people underrate.
>thought it another fake link thread>click link>it's fucking realChrist.
I don't intend to come across as disrespectful or irreverent of a great artist's passing, but why do you faggots pretend to be personally affected by him dying?There's almost nothing in the entire world that could be less about you. Why are you grandstanding on a music forum of all places? It's not a competition for who had the most intimate connection with his music. There was no conceivable scenario in which his life didn't end in death, get the fuck over yourselves and honor his legacy as a musician. Characterization of his work as fundamentally sad is a disservice to the complexity of the themes he evoked. It's an ingratiating pity party for people whose only catharsis with his music boils down to>tfw no gf
>>90065152Why the fuck is this not stickied.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g6tYdiTln6g
rip to the absolute legend
>>90066714The fact that you took that from people expressing remorse over an artist they enjoy’s death says a lot more about you as a person than anyone else here. No ones even posting with hubris or ego here, except for you. You literally called out other people for acting like they had a deeper connection with his music and then proceeded to do just that. Get over yourself faggot
Brian Wilson outlives another
>>90066714Get a load of this guy
>>90066305>>90066376Cool, thanks mi familia

>>90065564Somebody on /mu/ posted something from an interview where he said he has sex "when he can" but that it's hard to pick up girls on the road
>>90065365At least he got the timing right. Imagine going on a farewell tour because you think you're about to die and wind up lingering for twenty more years.

surely you don't work all night
Fuck. I'll miss you, Dan.
>>90067337>I haven't been this hurt since Bowie passed awaysame m8
I only listened a couple of his track and he seemed so sincere and uniqueF
don't be sad, i know you will..
Do you think that last album he said he was working on, "If" is what it was called I think, will come out? Do you think he finished it?
[Verse 1]He was smiling through his own personal hellDropped his last dime down a wishing wellBut he was hoping too closeAnd then he fellNow he’s Casper the friendly ghost[Verse 2]He was always polite to the people who’d tell himThat he was nothing but a lazy bumBut goodbye to them he had to goNow he’s Casper the friendly ghost[Verse 3]No one never treated him niceWhile he was aliveYou can’t buy no respectLike the librarian saidBut everybody respects the deadThey love the friendly ghost[Verse 4]And now they say we’ll never forgetWhat he learned usWe were mean to himBut he never burned us, andLove lives foreverThank you, the friendly ghostThank you, Casper the friendly ghost[Outro]And so the legend grewAnd all the people that he knewGo and spread the news ofCasper the friendly ghost
never heard of this fag
>it’s real>now i will never get to see him liveFsticky now
>>90067459please kill yourself, it would do everyone a favor :)
>>90065152I honestly have only heard a couple of songs by him, but he seems to have lead a sad life, I just hope he's in a better place now.
>>90067459well maybe listen to one of his records, he is honest and sincere. You'll see why I'm being a prick about respect or whatever. The man deserves it. Any sad lo-fi indie artist from the 90s owes it to this man. Including Beat Happening, Neutral Milk Hotel, and the Mountain Goats. He put lo fi tape recordings on the map
>>90067269not them but youre the only here trying to get big boy points
he didnt die happy bros, I know he didnt. We all know he didnt He died surrounded by his siblings who all thought he was a burden
>>90067534they'll all be happy to get the apple money he earned
thanks for your songs daniel, really helped me through tough timesF
I don't even listen to him but I can't believe there isn't a sticky.

"duhhh im retarded mountain dewww mountain dewwwww mcdonalds" - daniel johnston

please do your job mods don’t be fags
>>90067196this I've been off this board for years now, the fact this isnt sticky yet shows how retarted this board has become just focused on music memes not on the musicI had to come back for daniel though, none of my friends like him and I know you bros would understand the pain this puts me in
What's your favorite LP /mu/? For me it was Artistic Vice.
>>90067534speaking as a person who is treated for the same mental illness he had, i really believe that his music made him the happiest. having a creative outlet is so healing. but i do agree though, not taking care of physical health is a great challenge and pain and can affect mental health as well.
>>90067616fuck you zoomer
>>90067511>He put lo fi tape recordings on the mapPretty sure that was actually Bruce Springsteen that did that with Nebraska.
>>90067618thats not what that means
I'm actually really sad about this one. Goin thru his discog rn. IMO this is his best song:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-0zrQsuLnGoIt's always seemed really weird to me that everybody idolizes this guy as some kind of indie god, when really he just wanted to be like the Beatles or something. I don't think he really understood entirely why everybody loved him. But for real his shit slaps. Going through his discog now holding back tears. The guy was a legend, some of these songs were just so important to me growing up. I hope 16 year olds breaking away from conventional music will continue to be inspired by him forever
>>90067643Songs of Pain, love how it sounds like a old time piano man yknow?
>>900676431990 or hi how are youbasic choices, i know, but damn they get me every time
>>90067678I wish I could hang with you that's a good ass pick
>>90067745listen to more music please
>>90067678dont hold back bro let it outi had to come home from work and cry this one out. this one really hurts yall.
True fact: in his earliest days, back when he used to sell his own home made cassettes, Daniel didn't have a dual deck for duplication so he'd simply play and record the songs again to a new cassette. Each cassette was a unique recording.
One thing I've been curious about. In The Devil And Daniel Johnston, it is stated that whenever Daniel made copies of tapes to give out, he would actually re perform the entire album. Have any of these alternate performances ever shown up?
>>90067745a person with really beautiful and sincere music
I'm dropping the biggest and most respectful F of my life.
>>90067643Don't Be Scared for sure. some of his best writing on it

I'm honestly on the verge of crying and I haven't cried in like 10 years
>sticky>only 244 posts/mu/ really is dead
>>90065152Hadn’t heard of him before.Just listened to some of his songs.Talentless and cringe.
>>90067709come over senpai let's cry togetherfor real tho the biggest downfall of 4chan is that when you actually make a genuine connection with somebody there's nothing you can do about it lol.>>90067780for real. Just got to walking the cow and lost it, so fucking classic. I used to have a chord organ that sounded exactly like his, really satisfying to wail that one out
>>90067823when was the last time /tv/ talked about an actual movie?
>Scott Walker didn't get a stickyThis will never not hurt
Well I am getting fucking drunk tonight.
SOME THINGS LAST A LIFETIME
Godbless Daniel lad.
>>90067788>>90067792i've always wondered if anybody's ripped any of those. Remember that dude who was obsessed w/ him from the movie? Like his manager or something? I bet he probably picked the best recordings from a number of versions to put em together. Really fucked up to imagine that the version of "I picture myself with a guitar" and shit were the best ones lol
>>90065152unironically the worst thing to ever happened on 9/11
Fs in the chat, boys...
>>90067882his best song even though its not his
I can't F any harder
>>90067851I hope someday you find something that makes you feel as much as Daniel transmits me.
Fucking hell bros
>>90067921His best song is Christmas in the Looney Bin
major F. i personally didn't like his music but he was undoubtedly real and meant a lot to many people
>>90067882That song kills me even when I'm in a good mood, really fucking stings now.
>>90067952good pick! but for me it might be worried shoesor Urge

"In the early 1990s, he suffered a manic psychotic episode during a plane flight, when, believing he was the cartoon character Casper the Friendly Ghost, he threw the ignition keys for the plane out of its window – he and his father escaped with minor injuries following the subsequent crash. It prompted one of many spells in psychiatric institutions, and he was diagnosed with schizophrenia and bipolar disorder....."Holy fuck, he caused a plane to crash. I'm surprised he survived for as long as he did
THERE'S A HEAVEN ANDTHERE'S A STAR FOR YOU
>>90068117I don't think he had a concept of what a hipster is
>>90067988he'll be fineAlso I find it amazing how "malleable"/"ageless" his mind is, his favorite band (XTC) didn't come around until he was pushing 30, he learned how to code websites and use digital recording in his mid-40s in the 90s (and jumped head-first onto Bandcamp when it came into existence), and now he's on Twitter at nearly 70 seemingly with a full grasp of millennial post-ironic humor. Labels handle some releases but his operation is still largely DIY including all the technical stuff. Dude's based and seemingly never stuck in the past

RIP Daniel. About time, mods.
>>90065886dont't forget joão fucking gilberto didnt get a stickythis board is dead and the mods killed it
>>90067678based pick, more dead than alive is great off that album too
>>90068400holy fuck thank you anon
Rest in peace. A dear artist that was dear to our culture.
>>90068400Thank you, and RIP Daniel
Rest in peace, Dan.
>>90065152...I was just reading about Daniel Johston yesterday and reflecting on how pain-filled his life is. His music was so powerful because his entire existence was fucking horrible. This saddens me greatly, but at least he's now found some release from his mental torment.
>>90065152>was just talking to a friend about him>open /mu/>he's fucking dead
Ah shit, fellas. This is terrible news.https://youtu.be/sjf8H4SM4zc
>>90065152damn shame. rest easy big fella
Finally a sticky that took way too long
>>90065152FFuck this gay earth
>>90068562If there was no sticky that would be just as if not more offensive than Glenn Branca, Alan Vega, and Lil Peep not getting stickies. I'm still pissed that Michael Jackson's deadbeat dad got a sticky but all these talented artists did not.
>>90068508thom yorke supports the cause? nice
>>90068182I love you Anon. Hope you're ok.
>>90067262He died this morning
>>90065152F>Going down>Going down>Going down>Again
>>90067643Don't be Scared by far. Retired boxer is also pretty underrated. Ofc 1990 and Hi, How Are You?
Cracking open a Mountain Dew for this legend. What a tormented life this guy lived behind smiles and catchy melodies.Rock N Roll/EGA off his first major label release is fucking great if anyone here wants to try and get into him without diving right into the ultra lo-fi stuff.
>>90065152You will be missedF
>sticky>not even 1000 posts to say only 1000 posts/mu/ really is dead
>>90067643hi how are you. sorry to be basic
>>90068631i’ll be okay. i’m grateful for the music he made. i feel like it’s easy for people with mental illness to dwell on hardship and make music about depression/whatever, but having severe mental illness and expressing all emotion, not just “oh i’m sad i’m gonna write this whole fucking album about being sad”, in your artistry is amazing in my opinion. i’m happy he did what he did in his life. makes me appreciate life a little bit more.
>>90067851i hate zoomers so much

who do you think is next?
Gone with the wild windLike it was a dreamPreserved now for all to seeLike nothing you've ever seen
https://youtu.be/r13_iYXXKRcUnironically, was he mentally retarded?
>>90068787we’re getting there don’t worry :)
>>90065340First laugh i had, since i found out. Thanks.
Let's see if we can get to 500 guys
>>90068240Just paying respects is fine. Melodramatic retards take it too far with shit like this >>90066647>>90068309You're very emotionally immature if your appreciation of an artist's work is at all contingent on whether they're alive. It's idiotic, he died decades ago.
>>90068911probably aspergers. definitely bipolar, schizophrenic
>https://youtu.be/qu0RAMwH20kAlready a sad song, then the addition of him dying alone, multiplied by how badly he was shaking that he couldn't even play it himself anymore.F
>>90068888h-hell be fine?
This is truly the worst thing to ever happen on September 11th.
I first found out about Daniel Johnston a few years back, some people were talking about how the song "Wood Jackson" by David Bowie was written about Daniel. I spent the following months being sucked into all of Daniels work, i couldn't believe how much i gravitated towards it, his lyrics, his musical compositions, his personality. I hope he finds all of the peace and love he has always longed for, he's truly inspirational and his work will live on and continue to have an impact on future generations. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h9Dq0NxbCnUhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JlhUpRMRtdAhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ne8PTplP6zshttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=86woMfCif0Mhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GZuNFEo3MPQ&list=PLQXPisFsBt5zzQKMxCJn9lxBCEx8J4I_E&index=8https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zoY2gOix0_shttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nwl-9ckIkSghttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EJ6K8QiZ540https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hdM6njAlaHAhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=urjJ06T_Dmshttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3cZ64BXM5xAhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ju2trEBh-Sshttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vd2QdaDNt0ohttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sTA2ENoPpZUDaniel said his favorite song of his was Enchanted lovehttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j16Aw5GpXoo
Time to cry while listening to Don't be Scared :(
holy fuck. i just watched the devil and daniel johnston the other day and I had a premonition about his death and how /mu/ would react what the fuck
>>90065775I have been trying to decide which of his songs i should listen to first since finding out, i think it will be this. I'll probably listen to the one on The Lost Recordings. Thank you.
>>90068787yeah i saw that thread too
Fuck, this one does hurt a little. Seeing him in Dallas was one of the best, most surreal experiences I’ve had in a venue. He will be missed. Big F in chat
im unbearably sad
When the sun shines down on me - I feel I have to earn itF
welp atleast we got one sticky
he's with satan now
>>90066714This but also fuck Daniel Johnston, I relate to him being a loser but his music sucks
hey i have video of him singing and having tremors in 2016 - how do i make it a webm from my iphone so i can post it here ?
literally who lol? why is this on the kpop board?
This is the first musician I care about to die in a long time, this really sucksMaybe he'll finally get to meet Casper and ask him how he died at leasthttps://youtu.be/2ki08oLDeek
>>90069231Upload it to streamable.com and post link
>>90065152NOW HE’S CASPER THE FRIENDLY GHOST
based mods for stickying this. Not all hope is lost.

why are mods so soulless these days? if this happened in 2012 /mu/ would have a Daniel Johnston song playing
>>90069241not now, kpop whore. come back later
>>90069180Short video of that showhttps://streamable.com/7y2ny
if he stanned loona maybe he wouldn't be dead just sayin
>the closest i will ever get to seeing daniel johnston play live is wayne coyne covering true love will find you at a flaming lips showand now i’ll never actually get to see him for realRIPhttps://m.youtube.com/watch?v=xHjqzS1VAPA
>>90069291does /v/ still do the robot unicorn attack thing in february
is his mom still alive? feel for her
>>90069378I was lucky enough to see him perform true love, and I had a lump in my throat the entire song.
>>90069241twiceniggers are so unfunny
>hurrr not even 1000 repliesthat is because daniel johnston is an indie musician who only people from /mu/ would know about obviously some big dadrock star like david bowie or joe jackson would get a sticky with +1000 replies because people from other boards would be flooding from here to mourndaniel johnston is more obscure than that. thats why roky and david berman didnt get thousands of replies or a sticky, they're obscure
>>90069026>77 years old>still does concertshell be fine
>>90069406she's up in heaven now screaming at him
>>90069241You faggots and grimes/lauren mayberry fans killed /mu/. Be gone.
>>90069418david berman didn't get a sticky because the mods here are fucking retarded and have exactly 1 job: to keep kpop here so /mu/ doesn't tank in activity for gookmoot's wallet
this isn't fair brosGiving him a hug was one of my life goals
It feels bad bros
everything pure gets devoured by the world
>>90069242Same. I don't think I've felt this way since MJ died ten years ago. Listened to a lot of Daniel Johnston during the wilderness years after I broke up with my first long term girlfriend.
i wonder how sad jad fair is right now
>>90069493you mean the guy who kicked him to the curb in new york city and left him to die?
>>90069411man, i can’t imagine what it’s like to see him perform live. it must’ve been the coziest shit ever.
>>90069406His mother and father died in 2010 and 2017, respectively.
>>90068977First off what do you mean he died decades ago? Also no I've loved his music for years and I'm sad that someone who's art has meant a lot to me has died. You're a real cynical bastard and desu cynicism is far more emotionally immature than being genuine.
>>90068911having schizophrenia for decades will do that to you
>>90069516Not really religious but if they all shared a mutual love for each other (not really sure what his parents were like) I hope they are together once again. This is the worst 9/11 post 9/11.
>>90069273sorry not too long , but you can see the trouble he having https://streamable.com/dgbve
>>90069568god i cant even look at it, poor guy
>>90068911that song is so sweet
who is this?
>>90065152Wtf it's real?
>>90065886Dick Dales is based, what's wrong with him getting a sticky?
>>90065152For once a real human being dies and not some soulless celebrity.F
>>90065564Why does that matter?
>>90068128yeah he could have easily died 100 times between 83 and the early 90s. it's kind of a miracle he made it this far
>>90065152Oh no ;_;
>>90065152Rest in peace you beautiful soul.
>>90069721This, was he even married?
>>90066714i'm a homosexual male and you're literally the biggest faggot i've ever encountered
rip in peace, good night sweet prince
>>90069740You should really not practice it then. God bless.
Did he die a virgin? Rest in peace to the man that got me interested in underground music.
>>90069754no he definitely smashed

>>90069592>>90069579>>90069568can anyone turn that into a webm ?
>>90069754Why does that matter so much to everyone ITT? Was he even married?
>>90068400RIP Daniel! thanks for this Anon!
>>90066714i just want to say that I'm a female /mu/ poster and your post is literally the most unattractive thing i've seen in the past weekget a grip, loser

>>90069786No one cares, hole
>>90068400his body isn't even cold and you people are already stealing from himgo to iTunes and buy his albums. his children need it.
I saw an interview earlier where he said that he really did find true love in the end through the good time he experienced in his life and I couldn't hold in my tears. Rest in peace, Daniel. You have touched people in so many ways.
>>90069799you clearly do, incel
>>90069811Try not to get your period blood everywhere
I'm glad this guy died so I can come and post the feels guy picture onto my favorite picture website so people will know I'm sad
>>90069811>ummm im a girl aaaanddd youre an incel.we just lost one of the greats. do your bull shit somewhere else
>>90069841I had a deeper connection with his music than you did, and there's nothing you can do about it. Cope, retard.
>>90069841That's awesome man you're such a good person I can really tell how sad you are
>>90068400Is this the collection with the late 70s demos? If so do you have anymore information on them? Couldn’t find anything on discogs
>>90069801>paying for music>ever
>>90069856Actually what you just said on 4channel.org about having deeper connections with music is not at all true. So there, ha.
>>90069856And I have the same connection to his music that others will have with yours: 0
Do you think he died happy?
>>90069351come back never. I'm so sick of Kpop garbage being spammed on this board. It's not music discussion, it's just thirsty perverts whacking off to asian girls. Show me one instance of those fuckers actually talking about the pop music rather than the singers.
man, this thread reflects really poorly on /mu/maybe it's time for me to leave this place for good

Daniel Johnston was essentially a clout martyr.Everyone is claiming this was a random robbery, but it's clear what was actually happening: his killers were driven to take his life solely for the sake of clout. They wanted infamy of their own and found it in gunning down a 58-year old.As Dan was taking his final breath, he was surrounded by kids taking video and pictures of him. Why? For clout. No one was taking his pulse, no one was calling 911, everyone was standing around with their phones out as his body was clinging to life.The moral lesson of Johnston's life story should be a cautionary tale of the horrors of social media and how it's fucked our society beyond belief.RIP Dan. See you in Heaven...
>>90070081Holy shit, Jeff performed this on the same date as Daniel died, just in 2011. Spooky.

>>90069907A massive coronary is one of the closer-to-instantaneous ways to go, which is really as good as it gets, so hopefullyhe had more or less completed his 18th album apparently so he was probably in a state of some creative fulfilment at least, happy might be pushing it with schizophrenia etc.

>>90065152he's with kurt cobain now
>>90070141Your assumption that people are so self obsessed speaks more to your own biases than it does to other people. You see genuine expressions of sadness on an anonymous board and you interpret it as somehow self serving. I just don't get it. This is basically a virtual fan wake do you get that?
>>90066429Take your meds
>>90070187Just let them have it anon.These kids have a bunch of pent up emotion because they haven't been through shit in life so they look for excuses to moan and be emotional.It's obnoxious but this generation is narcissist to the max and they can't see past themselves for shit.
>>90066429you are retarded
FCan't believe we live in a Daniel Johnstonless world now
Daniel Johnston fucked kids
>>90070217Yes I get that. I know some people here are genuinely sad. I also think that there are also a bunch of other people that are self serving, extremely narcissistic and just obnoxious.I think both things can be true anon.
>>90070187No I don't see the problem, explain yourself?
>>90066714Imagine having human empathy and understanding that death is a sad event.

Appreciating that someone had a difficult life and made the most of it and mourning their death is just human empathy. It's nothing to do with ego or narcissism, people die and it's sad.
>>90070369You seem to lack the concept of relativity. People are sad regardless of success, positivity, money, etc.Humans are infinitely more complex than they shit you are suggesting.

>>90069801yeah man the dream of every musician that when they die their music is gated by money
>>90066429>he fucked disabled chicksAre you referring to that story he told on Montage of Heck? Because that story has been disproved by people he went to high school with. Also Cobain was a known compulsive liar making up absurd stories for the "quirky" factor.

>>90067968Great taste, that's one of my top 5 DG songs.Truly a based man all around.
He drove those demons out of his headhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gSMCf2-CYo8Daniel has been a huge part of my life for many years. I listen to almost exclusively his music. When i'm not listening to his music, i'm listing to covers of his music. His songs have brought me to tears many times. They have given me hope when i felt like i had none. I have his art on my walls. I have a Yip/Jump Music t-shirt. I have an autographed Jeremiah The Innocent on my wall. I have a Jeremiah tattoo. He had a way of putting into words these basic truths that are so essential to being a human, things that are essential to living a life, and having relationships. He seemed to do this effortlessly, and yet these were things that other artist rarely spoke about, or were never really able to put their finger on. His talent for putting together pieces of music that were so moving and beautiful was unrivaled in my mind. I'm posting in this thread in spite of the fact that so many people just want to bicker about nothing, because i know that some of you saw what i saw in him, and you loved him like i did. I'm mourning with you today, and i want you to remember that Daniel had a theme in his music. Something that you could hear in just about every single one of his songs. It wasn't sadness. It was hope.
>>90067815i've been crying about it man, didn't even know him

>>90071701>He had a way of putting into words these basic truths that are so essential to being a human, things that are essential to living a life, and having relationships. He seemed to do this effortlessly, and yet these were things that other artist rarely spoke about, or were never really able to put their finger on.Well said.
>>90070986This shit just made me weep
>>90071765Idris Elba is already prepared for the role.
>>90071745The Mountain Dew...Thank you for posting this.
>>90071745Take a better picture you fucking pice of faggoty shit.
>>90071745What song was about Mountain Dew?
He was so fucking genuine and sincere. He truly lived and died for art. Rest in peace Daniel, you crazy diamond.
>>90071052Daniel Johnston was a bipolar schizophrenic who started making music by recording lofi cassette tapes of him singing while playing a chord organ, most tapes being unique performances of each song due to financial constraints. He started giving away the tapes to local music critics for newspapers and people in his neighborhood, grew a cult following and gained enough money to start recording in studios. He gained more exposure after Kurt Cobain wore a shirt with one of his album covers on it, and it resulted in him getting offered two record deals. The first was on Elektra with a really generous contract, but he declined it because he believed Metallica was possesed by Satan and would hurt him. The second time he actually did accept was with Atlantic, but they only distributed one album before pulling the plug due to poor sales. He never gained mainstream commercial success, but he did influence people who were miles more successful than him (Kurt Cobain, Built to Spill, Cage the Elephant, Jason Pierce, as well all these: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Late_Great_Daniel_Johnston:_Discovered_Covered). I think the biggest commercial exposure he's gotten was having one of his songs be featured in an Apple commercial last year.In my opinion, his best album is 1990, his first hifi album.>>90071745This was a mural that Daniel was commissioned to draw by a Texas record store in 1993. The mural apparently became so beloved in the area that the locals living around it have prevented it from being removed even after the store closed. The business that currently occupies the building is a Thai restaurant named "Thai, How Are You".

i highly recommend anyone who doesn’t know who daniel was should watch the devil and daniel johnston, it tells you about his whole life
>>90072070I couldn't do a pic like this because a ton of people were standing in front of it and you wouldn't be able to see the flowers and mountain dew. Had to take it at an angle
>>90072124So you took like 1 pic?One single pic?pic cartridge full or something?
>>90072124thanks anon we love u
i just cried like hell in front of my gf..i loved him as a songwriter. and he's from West Virginia! so she got me more beer . now that i think, my lifes great. why do i spend my time here anyway with all you DanielsAnyway, Love you Dan. Hope you find Lori in the aftermath :)
What is this just across the street?
>>90072124Don't listen to that douchebag. The picture you took was great. I saved it, and will keep it forever.
>>90072124based anon scoping out the best possible angle
Just heard the news. Rest in Peace Daniel
>>90072210That's a church and they hung up some thing that looks kinda like one of DJ's drawings (or maybe it is) inviting you to go to mass with them lol.It's like the frog is saying "Hi how are you?" and that little creature goes "Doin just fine."
>>90072124how many people are over there?
>a literal schizophrenic was a successful artistI didn't know about him before but I'm inspired now
I'm surprised by how few names has come out of Austin. it's got a bigger population than where I live, Boston, and we've shit out so many bands.

>>90072305>ME ME ME ME ME ME ME
>>90065152I think it makes us sad Daniel died, because we've all felt like Daniel at one time. Or maybe we feel like him sometimes. Or all the time. We can relate to him, because we are him. He reminds us of our greatest feats, and worst dreams. The tortured deserve happiness too. I hope he found it.

Didn’t listen to too much of his music but appreciate him a lot and loved him in that Nardwuar interviewF

>>90072608https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BQAFvlNX0MA&list=PLkh-BtLSJJ78IFSlIMtEf-BIb0orXWrkG&index=82&t=0sThis is probably not my favorite, but I've been obsessed with it for months. Gibby Haynes is singing, he is the front man from Butthole Surfers and Johnny Depp plays the bass on this song.
HE WAS /OURGUY/
I'm crying, guys. Daniel Johnston is what got me through being abused and a suicide attempt. I'd be dead if it weren't for his music. I don't even know how to feel.
>>90072806Nope, he was a worthless faggot.>>90072840Oh no, what a loss your suicide would have been.
>>90073089Go back to pol
>>90072554He was a degenerate piece of shit who fried his SS$0YY brain with acid and mcdonalds, he's overrated as fuck, die with him
>>90073089go draw sketch lynching or something. At least be productive while edgy.
>>90073118I'm a lauded fine artist, Daniel Johnston was a faggot-lauded trash artist and trash failure of a manboy. Go jerk off to some Harmony Korine interviews.
>>90073107We don’t want him
I remember years ago telling some girl about Daniel Johnston and she thought I was talking about Daniel Johns, the faggot Silverchair frontman
>>90065152F1990 and Hi How Are You are beautiful albums
>>90073180silverchair is really fucking good though?
>>90073145haha ok, post your work then.
don't be sad i know you will
>>90070542All the tapes chronologically
>>90072608https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pUpxnEA-CVk&frags=pl%2CwnKathy McCarty (Glass Eye) did an entire album of his songs (Dead Dog's Eyeball), check it out.
rest in peace
i don't post here anymore, but i still come around here when i need to say goodbye to a real one.i want to thank whoever recommended him to me on here when i was about 15 in ~2012. i had no friends throughout high school and listening to and playing his music was one of the only comforts i had. there are certainly more talented and refined songwriters, but none of them hit my gut like daniel. i can't count the number of times he helped me cry or help me find comfort when i was lonely.i'm very grateful that this lonely, troubled man handed out his tapes to strangers in west virginia i'm gonna go play Some Things Last a Long Time and Walking the Cow on my piano and have a few drinks.
>>90065152I don't see what the big deal was. He sucked.
F these last years seemed pretty rough for daniel, glad he isn't suffering anymore
F, beautiful mind... beautiful person
>>90067075this one has always been my favorite
>>90073089 Put more effort in please
>>90065152He wasn’t a genius lol he was an oddity and a bit of a freak. Motherfuckers use the word genius too liberally
>>90065365I saw him in NYC his band sucked
>>90065564Good song title
>>90065886Glenn Branca is aNobody
Shit, rest in peace

>>90073473ur welcome bro
>>90073737I love DJ but I have to admit that I mostly agree. He was a very interesting and sympathetic character with obvious talent, but a genius? I wouldn’t call him one. Either way, he will be missed.

>>90071745The old Sound Exchange, I remember when he painted that, glad the new people kept it. Played a couple of gigs with Danny and the Nightmares back in the day, Daniel was a good egg. RIP.
God rest his soul.
>>90074377damn right ;-;
i was just watching the devil and daniel johnston again and apparently he took a hit of acid at a butthole surfers show on september 11th, 1986 and that led him into a nervous breakdownweird timing
Is it just me or does this guy's music suck fucking ass. Do people only pretend to like him because Kurt wore the shirt?
Who is this boomer? Why should we care that he died?
god damn, 2019 is taking out all my favourite cult artistsMark Hollis, Scott Walker, Dr. John and now Daniel Johnston

Fuck 9/11, this is today's tragedy
>>90070552what a weird larp this post is
>>90074546I forgot Dr John died this year too, damn, there really has been a lot
>>90065152Do some research on where Daniel Johnston grew up. He was surrounded by MK-Ultra. A lot of people blame his illness partially on his Mother and her religious, domineering manner. But there were hospitals in Texas, known mind control facilities which have now been shut down, who filled Daniel up with experimental medication. Members of the band "Butthole Surfers" were also exposed to these horrors, including Gibby Haynes. Watch this video from the 1980s and try to remember that Daniel Johnston was a pure soul with a great big heart that got trapped in a sick system of government mind control.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qNnC5M9IKUI

>sticky post>under 1000 repliesHoly fuck this board is dead. /mu/, you'll go down in history LIKE THE WORLD TRADE CENTER
As sad as it is, I'm kind of relieved he's gone. His life was probably terrible without his parents, considering he couldn't really take care of himself.
>>90074480His singing can be understandably off putting, but people do genuinely like him. It’s not that hard a concept to grasp.
Just here paying respect./mu/ still sucks.
>>90074914He struggled a lot in recent years, mentally and physically. He’s finally free.
>>90065886Holy shit I didn't even realize Glann Branca had died. Fuck this is terrible.
WHAT THE FUCK I just found out now. Probably the only musician who has emotionally effected me that I can remember when they died now. Feels so shitty man.
>>90074855this mofo knows what's up, that place where Doctor colin ross worked, timberlawn, and teresa from the butthole surfers talks about it in linklater's movie that was made in austin, omg, the same guy that does the multiple personality disorder screw jobs for the CIA and writes books about it, OMGWTFWTFWTFWTFWTF
I sat down at the piano today after i heard the news and covered "True Love Will Find You In the End". That was the happiest I've ever felt from playing somebody else song. I have no doubt he will be happier in the next life. RIP Daniel. Deserves the sticky forsure

>>90070310not that anon, but im 22 as well and believe me i have fucking suffered. c-ptsd from rape, an abusive father, and being assaulted multiple times thoughout high school. terrible ocd to the point where my lips are always bleeding and the skin on my hands are fucked. anxiety so bad i cant leave the damn house. 3 suicide attempts.ohh but yess no sufferingfuck off cunt
>>90075073jesus christ, he looks like he went through a fucking world warthat poor man. why couldn't we protect his smile?
>true love didn't find Daniel in the endCruel world. He died in poor health and alone. But maybe the true love that found him was from his fans?
I haven't been on /mu/ in over three years. I just came here to pay my respects. Thanks daniel. You helped in some hard times.And to the people who rationalize insulting the recently deceased:Blow it out your ass. Let sleeping dogs lie.
>>90075196I know this feel anon. I've been dealing with it for 8 years now. Just don't give up. Help is coming soon. Just don't quit. Keep punching, Joe. Walk the cow.

>>90075101thats a pretty nice picture, just looks like a nice normal almost 60 dude. :')

>>90075243actually, his health had been on a slightly upswing relatively recently according to his family, hes said to have been in very good spirits this past month.
>>90075243he was truly lovedhttps://musicfeeds.com.au/news/listen-lana-del-rey-covering-daniel-johnston-some-things-last-long-time/but this is heartbreaking shit
>>90075293I'm friends with his brother, Dick. He lived with his brother and his sister would also look after him from time to time. His parents died awhile back, first his Mom and more recently his Dad.

>>90075243He may not have found romantic love, but he found the love of countless people who will forever be touched by his music, and I’d argue that’s even better. When we die, how many strangers will cry and mourn for us? Love found him, just in a different way.
>>90075449mega cringe!! Into the cringe comp!!!!
>>90070160i cry evrytim
I thought this guy was named Daniel Johnston. Phew, the world of music really dodged a bullet there. Imagine if it was the vocalist of Silverchair who died instead of this talentless hack really named Daniel Johnston
>>90075409>Heaven on the other hand is boring. Let's hope Daniel found a better afterlife than eternal repetitive, emotionless, meaningless existenceI understand what you're saying, but I feel like you're implying heaven is that false platonic idea of being a spirit floating in a heaven realm for all eternity, when it's so much more then that.
>>90075451One night in Austin, he could have easily gotten laid by a groovy chick called "JonBenet Mellencamp" who adored him, but he had an episode and it didn't work out. I wish I knew where that woman was now. She was sexy.

>some lo fi musician drops dead>find the most popular record of his>start listening to itwhat is THIS? i feel like im getting meme'd on
I've been going through a lot of shit lately, life hasn't been the greatest, and school has been killing me with stress slowly. I've lost all my passions and hobbies after being forced to do so much crap against my will. Today I actually had an exam in college, and I find literally 10 minutes before class starts that Daniel died. I ended up almost crying my way into a class that already I wasn't prepared for. I've suffered through a lot of mental issues in my life, and still do, so people like Dan often give me some light in life, knowing i'm not alone. Of course, people like him have it a LOT harder than I do, but I can't help but get attached. I didn't actively listen to his stuff all the time, I usually did when I got sad, but he still remained as someone I respected. I wish I was as passionate about art as he was.Well either way, he's probably doing better now, away from suffering and his personal demons. I like to think true love in the end is God, and the peace that comes with leaving this shitty world behind. Also, all the fans who loved him as well. Dan deserved better than what happened to him. Rest in peace man
>>90075658Just remember, the worse something sounds the more /mu/ pretends it's good
>>90075535I mean he did sell out and become a twink so that's a fate worse than death
>>90073145>I'm a lauded fine artistNah you are not, faggot.
Old ex austinfag here. I knew him when he looked like the OP photo. I have a Hi! How Are You? cassette somewhere. Glad to hear him before the demons

>>90075658It's shit but sweet and sad in it's shitness and because he was an incel mentalist people let him off for his shitness (for 4chan this makes him even more attractive).

Honestly I never heard of him

>>90076213see what I mean? hahahago back and listen to Beefheart and you will have all kinds of people saying it's shit, but keep listening to it for a couple of decades, eventually you realize it's pure fucking genius but what has happened is the music has stayed the same only you have evolved as a listener, you have grown to appreciateit's the difference between people who "get" Jazz and people who listen to Jazz to get laidbeer is country and western, weed is jazzdaniel is somewhere between folk or low-grade beer and avant garde or LSD = spiritual alchemy in sound form for those who know

>>90076401>>90076402>>90076462I would be interested in knowing what you consider to be fine musical art (whether in measure of value based on technique, ability to influence another person's thoughts or feelings or behavior, or any value you would care to assign to it). Can you give me some personal examples? My own personal examples would be Symphony No. 9 in D minor by Ludwig Van Beethoven, Evangelista by Carla Bozulich (recommended by Michael Gira from SWANS), The Beatles by The Beatles, anything by Sam Hopkins, anything by Jandek, and anything by Don Van Vliet. and last but definitely not least OM and India by John Coltrane.

>>90077126That really is a picture of Loli-Chan and she has the same illness that Daniel Johnston had. Weird.>>90077137Daniel was sexually active before his illness. If you watch some of the old archive footage of him in Austin, back when he was dating girls and dropping acid, he talks about having sex. I think he even talks about having sex with Caroline in the video posted above in this thread.
https://youtu.be/kHn4eHrmUVgme and daniel were both born in sacramento, cahe didn't grow up here, but it's still cool.
much love daniel. respect

Goddammit I'd just recently thought to myself that this would be the only musician death that would really affect me because he's the only one I have a strong emotional connection to.I didn't expect it to happen so soon.RIP Danny
RIPa part of him is immortalized in his music
