DOWNLOAD: Daniel Johnston - Honey I Sure Miss You (MP3)

Jeremiah the Innocent

Once upon a time, way back 1993, Daniel Johnston painted a large mural of a frog known as Jeremiah the Innocent (which is a Three Dog Night song) on the side of the Sound Exchange in Austin Texas. The image became an icon and has spun into a t-shirts, tanks and onesie franchise. And now the image has gone 3D! Produced by At Arms, they retail for about $99 and are in limited runs : Green (250 pieces) White (350 pieces) Yellow (250 pieces). You can contact the store Cardboard spaceship to reserve one once they are released. [ToyCyte]
They're already on sale.

As previously posted, Daniel Johnston is playing Warsaw in Brooklyn (again) on June 20th. Tickets are on sale. In July he'll be touring Europe with "the following play as backing players and support acts: Sparklehorse, Scout Niblett, Norman Blake (Teenage Fanclub), Jad Fair (Half Japanese) and James McNew (Yo La Tengo)." His last NYC show was at Highline Ballroom. All tour dates below....

gotta love it when babbling anonymous commenters recycle the same tired "zings" over and over again.

"Jeremiah the Innocent (which is a Three Dog Night song)"

A search of allmusic comes up with no hits for a song with that title. Do they mean "Joy to the World," the opening lyric of which is "Jeremiah was a bullfrog"?

Those figures look much nicer in person.
From what I hear, there should be some up today at www.frozenempiretoys.com later this afternoon for a bit cheaper ;)
