This is an old topic that I am answering. I devote a certain amount of hours every day for reading these boards and learning about Daniel. I am mesmerized by this guy, in which it is an obsession. Of course it is a very healthy one at that. When I was 19 I heard Abbey Road the first time. I only listened to Punk rock before that. Abbey Road gives me a heavenly feeling inside like no other, until Daniel Johnston. He is truly an icon of musical stature.
I was going through a movie-watching stage, which I do sometimes, and on NETFLIX I discovered Daniel.
My Real Interest didn't happen while watching the movie. It just caught my attention of him. The next day I started doing musical searches.... The rest is, you know.....  
It has been about a month now.
Wow, I almost feel like a different person, on some kind of evolutionary scale or something,
 Ha!....... Jokes.
 
I have no idea how to put a picture on here, I would show you guys my new tattoo. Its the Frog, with a row of teeth.

Hi, I discovered Daniel also by watching the documentary.. just accidentally(?) stumbled upon it on the net, and really saw so much of myself in his lives and music. It really is so honest and beautiful and its almost like every song I heard became a thought process..  And then you hear something like Itīs Spooky and more **** gets thrown out the window.. Cheesy, I discovered Half Japanese also, and really now have a deeper appreciation for the things I love.. but anywhoo a tattoo of Daniels art sounds great!! But for now  I think Iīll make a white Hi, How Are You? T-Shirt Smiley

Really good everytime to hear how Daniel has affected people, itīs doing so much for me right now also. Long live the independents!

Hey. Thanks for the Half Japanese suggestion.
I just listened to Bone Head. Really diggable music. There is something that is in music like that and Daniel Johnston's music does it to me too, and that is inspire me! Makes me want to get a portastudio, and breathe My winds!!! Love it! Thanks!

I first knew of him from kurt cobains tshirt back in the day but never looked him up or anything....then i heard this song on the radio, soko-i will never love you more (which i think is a terrible song) where she sings "i will never love you more than daniel johnston himself, to me he's more than god, i will never love you more".  Then one day i was looking through a bargain bin in a music shop and found a copy of the devil and daniel johnston...it was cheap so i bought it and loved it! then i bought welcome to my world and fell in love with his music and then began to hunt down his other stuff! I ended up buying 2 other copies of the devil and daniel johnston and gave them to friends who are now dan fans! that movie is the best introduction to an amazing musician! .....oh and i guess thanks soko  rolleyes
