I find this beyond creepy but hey, there are billions of people in the world, so I guess there must be people out there who would just love for their remains to be turned into vinyl records. And Vinyly exists to fill that demand (there is a demand for this right?). For an equally ridiculous fee, the company will press your ashes into a playable vinyl record. They can add songs into it, or perhaps a message from you, or if you want to take the morbidity factor to 11, leave it blank, so any tasteless idiot brave soul who plays your remains will hear nothing but the occasional pops and crackles.
The basic package – including generic album art and up to 24 minutes of audio recorded into your ashes – costs £2000 (approx. $3,100 USD). You can pay additional fees for better art and custom music, but the ultimate embarrassment is the £10,000 “FUNeral”, where people will gather round to hear your record be played. Check out And Vinyly’s website for more info. Personally, I’ve heard enough.
