I've thought about this a lot of late, and have been especially encouraged by Rob's post to respond.
If you look at all that Daniel has been involved in since 2005's "The Devil and..." Documentary, it's overwhelming.
First off, a touring schedule that would have given Hank Williams a heart attack. Then there's the brilliant and beautiful labor of love, "The Angel and Daniel Johnston – Live at the Union Chapel." Major art exhibitions, including the prestigious Whitney Biennale and the wonderfully realized Rizzoli Publication Art Book, collecting hundreds of reproductions. There's an iPhone game. Back to back critically acclaimed rock operas. Dozens of collaborations with a number of musicians, bands, artists and others. Three released albums. At least six or seven side projects with their own releases (or in the can and ready to roll). The gorgeous and under-appreciated Munster Records box set. The Hihowareyou Radio Shows. Television appearances, interviews, you tube clips, toys, greeting cards, tote bags, and the "Infinite Comic Book of Musical Greatness!" And there's still MORE coming! All this, in six years!
I'm sure I've missed dozens of other Daniel related projects, but you get the idea.
If anything, I believe there has been a media glut which has never really subsided. There is more information and access to Daniel's music than at anytime in his career!
Part of the original mystique of discovering Daniel, for me, was the unknown elements. Who IS this guy? What's the story behind these amazing lo-fi recordings? What is that sound? There was always this mythic aura to his music, out of time, where one had to just listen, headphones on as tight as possible, and glean what they could from ordering the tapes through Stress and pouring over every hand written word from Jeff on the back of the sales receipt when they arrived in your mailbox! 10 or 15 years ago, when "Daniel Johnston" was searched for online, you'd get a mailman from Nebraska and a photo of some Civil War soldier. That was it! Now, well, just go ahead. Google him. It's like figuring pi: it doesn't end.
As for the board, there is so much information scattered throughout here, that there is simply no humanly possible way to make any sense of it. I know something more streamlined and updated is coming soon, with more direct input from those around Daniel. But for now, the Museum of Love has so many wings and satellites of products, details and data, that one could get lost in there for years. Not necessarily a bad thing.
I recently have been going back to those early tapes, again, and yes, it is true. He IS better than any of us imagined. (Well, I'm sure Jeff T. imagined it, or he would not have poured out so much of his blood and sweat and tears to make Daniel's music available to whoever wanted to hear it.) Listen again to the incredible balance of confidence/vulnerability on "Frankenstein Love." An under-rated live masterpiece.
Who needs more talk? Who needs more extrapolation? Just pop in the tapes and hit play, and be reminded of why we call ourselves fans.
Meanwhile, we'll be here, keeping the torch burning for all who wish to enter.
