“One more time with feeling… billions and billions of people have already died. You too will die. Sing along with us, won’t you?”
I love everything about this performance: The participating audience, their nervous laughter, Daniel’s death monologue.
Before the plague at a new year’s gathering I tried to toast the recently dead: David Berman, Daniel Johnston, and Denis Johnson… but ended up drunkenly saying Daniel twice instead of Denis, to mild amusement.
Here is a third, small tribute. We love you, Daniel.
