You may die, but vinyl will live forever.
Thomas Edison once thought that the only use for vinyl recordings would be to record a person’s last will and testament. He figured no one would want to hear “recorded” music since it pails in comparison to hearing it performed live. Man was he wrong.
As it turns out. English company “And Vinyly is giving this “dead” form of media yet another purpose. For a mere price of £3,000 you can have your own remains pressed into vinyl after your death with a recording of your choice!
The company gives you the option to turn your ashes into either your favorite tracks, a recording of your own voice to be cherished by your family for years to come, or your last will and testament. And if you just want the really nitty gritty you can opt to press your ashes with no sound—just that “pop and crackle.”
If you’re worried about album art, it seems they have that covered as well—if you’re willing to spend the extra cash.
This has got to be one of the more creative ways to house your remains after your death. I personally would much rather be on a turntable than in the ground…though if someone were to hand me a vinyl pressing of my grandfather I would be more than a little creeped out.
