My Bags Are Packed / I'm Ready to Go

Something I can’t stop listening to: Kathy McCarty — also known as K. McCarty if you’re looking on iTunes — and her amazing cover of “Rocket Ship,” which is an original by the phenomenal Daniel Johnston. Yes, that Daniel Johnston. I initially heard it in the new Futurama movie, Bender’s Game, and haven’t bene able to get it out of my head since.

Lo-fi wonderment, this is, and I would never have been able find it if it wasn’t for the threat at this message board.

After an obsession earlier this year with “Walking the Cow,” I feel now more than ever that I need to watch The Devil and Daniel Johnston.
