Cremains of the Day: The Soundtrack of Your Life on Vinyl

It seems a bit bizarre that there’s a cottage industry based on creative things to do with a someone’s cremains. You can display them artistically, pack them into ammunition, fuse them into diamonds, and now—apparently—have them pressed into a vinyl LP.

Andvinyly.com is a U.K.-based company that will produce a working vinyl LP that contains the ashes of a deceased loved one. You provide the audio—a favorite song, a recording of someone’s voice, a soothing sound. Or you can choose simply to allow the ashes to provide an accompaniment of pops and clicks. The site is more than a little tongue-in-cheek, but the service is quite sincere, and if there’s a rock and roll heaven these discs just might be in its record library.

I was just going to have my ashes tossed off a bridge--but the alternative choices get more entertaining all the time.

I did not know of these things. I kinda like the idea of becoming an album when I die. haha
