The Devil & Daniel Johnston

I saw The Devil & Daniel Johnston last night. It was quite good, kind of depressing and full of lots of familiar songs. One of my all-time favorite songs has always been "Speeding Motorcycle" done by Yo La Tengo with Daniel calling in to do the vocals. Something about his vocals are so captivating, like he's talking directly to us. I also realized that one of my favorite early Built to Spill songs, "Some Things Last a Long Time", is also penned by Johnston. If the movie plays near you, you should go enjoy it with people you like, like I did.
