Death comes to us all. If you’re comfortable with this thought, or at least a forward planner, you’ll have made notes on how you want your send-off to be. You’ll have selected the music (I myself has a Requiem Song List, which I may discuss at another time) and even the type of casket.
For music lovers, And Vinyly offers something a bit more… lavish. Or outre. Or just grotesque, depending on your attitude.
For a stately fee, UK-based And Vinyly will press your ashes into a very limited edition vinyl album, with the soundscape of 12 minutes a side provided by you. For an extra cost, you can have bespoke (‘bespook’) portraits and music, and even international distribution.
If you’re not ready to go yet, but your beloved pet has shuffled off this mortal coil, you can always try it out with the cremated remains of your companion animal.
For £10,000 they’ll even officiate at your funeral for you.
Honestly, I don’t know whether to be amused or mortified (heh, heh, pun) by the fact that I find this idea so appealing!
What’s your vote?
