    Ashes to Ashes

    I drove by a famous funeral home here in town yesterday and I've never seen so many people lined up to enter. The line of fabulously dressed men and women stretched 200+ long as they stood in the rain waiting for a chance to pay their last respects and say all the relatively...

    Hmm

    These last couple of years, I lost many friends and family. I went to all of their funerals and there's a tension once you walk into the room, people crying, other people smiling and laughing with joy of reuniting. A Funeral brings people close yet separates the dead...

    Here's What I Want Instead

    I want my remains cremated.  Then I want Lisa to buy a kilo of the best weed in town, and mix my ashes in with it really well.  Then I want her to throw a big party so all my friends can smoke me while listening to A Love Supreme by John Coltrane.

    When I leave this body, I want this body to be fed to animals. It will complete the balance. While I am alive I feed on animals (dead ones after being cooked) so in a way I find it fair that they feed on this body when I leave it. Of course this humans around me won't agree to...
