_MarkAllen‎: I have a seriously unbalanced John Denver obsession… spontaneously watched 1st half oh OH GOD! in the middle of night last night. Bliss.

_MarkAllen‎: John Denver’s music is too big to be appreciated by folk purists, but not ridiculous enough to be camp. He’s like The Carpenters.

_MarkAllen‎: Lyrically he’s hopeless: “The children & the flowers are our sisters & our brothers, their laughter & their loveliness could clear a cloudy day.”

_MarkAllen‎: The man had a killer dress sense. But like a homogenized version of a killer dress sense. Hard to pinpoint.

_MarkAllen‎: Is it possible to delve deeeeeeep into mediocrity? John Denver did.

_MarkAllen‎: Farewell Andromeda and Aiere are masterpieces, if you don’t count his sublime GHV1, which has re-recorded version of the songs it shares.

_MarkAllen‎: “The Eagle & the Hawk” is as transcendent a song as Sonic Youth’s “Expressway To Your Skull.”

_MarkAllen‎: But where Sonic Youth’s “Expressway to Your Skull” = Glenn Branca, John Denver’s “Eagle & the Hawk” = more like Bernard Herrmann.

_MarkAllen‎: Not surprisingly, John Denver has an enormous following in Japan. He’s almost like a cult over there. I’m sure his blond features help.

_MarkAllen‎: John Fahey is more respected than John Denver, but Fahey’s death didn’t spawn an entire chapter in Blanche Knott’s “Truly Tasteless Jokes.”

_MarkAllen‎: John Denver was hypnotized by nature, but could only create “elevator music.” A paradox.

_MarkAllen‎: John Denver’s music has too much male energy to ever enjoy a hipster resurrection, like the Carpenters enjoyed. The gays don’t like him.

_MarkAllen‎: There a great made-for-TV movie called TAKE ME HOME: THE JOHN DENVER STORY starring Chad Lowe. Recommended. More about Annie Denver though.
#johndenver via twitter for iPhone, Feb 23, 2010 10:27:40 AM

_MarkAllen‎: TAKE ME HOME really portrays Denver’s struggle w/being renowned for “canned country” & his addiction to nature, which bordered on unhealthy.

_MarkAllen‎: There’s an inherent synthetic quality to everything John Denver did. It’s like country music made by brilliant robots.

_MarkAllen‎: Like Madonna, beneath the multiple masks of John Denver’s work lays nothing but the work ethic. Inspiration is referenced, never channeled.

_MarkAllen‎: John Denver’s death sealed his legacy at the last possible minute.
#johndenver via twitter for iPhone, Feb 23, 2010 10:32:18 AM

_MarkAllen‎: If he were still alive today he’d probably be an Al Gore-ish, lefty political type… tethered to the global warming cause no doubt.

_MarkAllen‎: @_coye Another wave of John Denver obsessiveness took hold of me at 2AM last night. This is the hangover.
#johndenver via twitter for iPhone, Feb 23, 2010 10:59:51 AM

_MarkAllen‎: I’ve been up for 36 hours smoking peyote and listening to dusty John Denver & the Muppets LPs. Where’s MY intervention?

_MarkAllen‎: @divideconquer thinks my John Denver obsession may relate 2 fact he looks like another of my obsessions: http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/4/45/Loganlifeclock.jpg …good eye!‎
