Some of us just can't give up our old vinyl albums. Even with our CD collections and Ipods, there's something about the scratchy sounds of the record and the beautiful art of the album covers that are wistfully nostalgic. Now there's something new in vinyl to attract all us baby boomers as we approach our final years.
A company in England, "And Vinyly," will mix your body ashes into vinyl particles and produce a vinyl album of you.
According to a WiredUK article:
The process of setting human ashes into vinyl involves a very understanding pressing plant. Basically the ashes must be sprinkled onto the raw piece of vinyl (known as a “biscuit” or “puck”) before it is pressed by the plates. This means that when the plates exert their pressure on the vinyl in order to create the grooves, the ashes are pressed into the record.You can pick your own playlist, including your favorite songs or sounds or even your own voice or your last will and testament. They'll even design an album cover or write an original song for you.
If you used to think you were groovy back in the 1960's, now you can prove it to your friends and family for eternity.
