We rarely get to choose the style in which we depart this mortal coil. There have been some creative departures of note like being blown up in fireworks, having your ashes shot into space, or having your remains snorted like Keith Richards supposedly didn't do with his father. I always wanted to be cremated and have my ashes mixed with some premium Vancouver Rocket Ship Weed and have my friends smoke me. (yes, I did think that up while high)
I think I have discovered my choice of memorial when I finally shit the bed. The folks at AndVinyly are offering to take your most beloved remains and press them into vinyl records. Not only turn you into a post mortal platter, but they also will take care of the artwork, write original music with your lyrics, and distribute your record worldwide(all for some righteous bucks of course). Yes this is similar to an actual record deal, but instead of giving your soul, you're giving your incinerated carcass. I had a chance to talk to, Jason "The Undertaker", the artificer of this musically morbid concept. Listen to the interview below and start thinking if you need an ep or lp to sum up your life.
