Daniel Johnston

For those of you who don't know, Daniel Johnston has been putting out low-fi pop songs for twenty-odd years. He had a hit of sorts when his version of "Casper the Friendly Ghost" was included on the "Kids" soundtrack, and last year, a two-disc tribute compilation featuring TV on the Radio, Tom Waits, and Calvin Johnson among others was released. He's sick with lithium poisoning, and it still hospitalized. If you feel like drawing a get well/christmas card, there's an address to send them here.

Get well, Daniel.
