Not sure if I've seen the whole of this, but the Manics are normally interesting to listen to.

I found it was a good documentary until it got towards the end around 45 to 50 minutes and Mark was acting like a senile elderly man.

It's hilarious though. And it raises the question of "Is this guy just a drunken lunatic with a cool voice or is he truly a genius?" which is a pretty interesting aspect of The Fall.

I like when Marc Riley is talking about Mark and says:
"We overuse the word genius. I DO think he's a genius though.

But also an awkward git"

Foo Fighters: Sonic Highways

hahaha

Just kidding, but it actually is an entertaining series. The passion that Grohl has for music is definitely refreshing.

The Devil and Daniel Johnston

Funnily enough I was trying to find this online last night. Do you know where I could watch it for free?

That's a fantastic film. You need to check it out. It's pretty sad though. Daniels parents are all like withered away in their late 80's and they're still care taking for him, going thru the same routines they have his whole life... Treating him to a Mountain Dew.

On the bright side Johnstons created a lot of music that still resonates with people. I saw him live at a theater out in Vancouver and he and his backing band put on a heck of a show.
