Wish Daniel Johnston a happy birthday! And listen to his radio show! And buy his comic book! Metamucil doesn’t pay for itself, you know?

Wish Daniel Johnston a happy birthday! And listen to his radio show! And buy his comic book! Metamucil doesn't pay for itself, you know?

Instead of sulking about the fact that he’s turning 50 years old tomorrow (January 22), Daniel Johnston is celebrating by setting up a call-in number where fans can leave him “Happy Birthday” messages! Call (936) 463-4688 if you’re so inclined. Johnston will listen to all the messages and most of them will air — along with special musician guest messages — during his 50th birthday radio show special on the new Daniel Johnston Radio on January 22 at 8 PM CT. The live show will also include music and stories from Johnston himself.

You can also support Johnston’s metamucil habit by donating money to Kickstarter, where he is releasing his first-ever comic book, titled Daniel Johnston’s Infinite Comic Book of Musical Greatness. Phew, who says you can’t be productive at 50 years old?
