Gah, almost as disturbing as http://www.lifegem.com/, they are making diamonds of your “beloved ones”. Juk!
[Bah–but I suppose it’s no worse than those people who embalm themselves *while still alive*. Just walking through LAX yesterday gave me the creeps. –J. (who will be using the interjection “Juk” with gusto from this point onwards]
THEY’RE PEOPLE !!!! THEY’RE PEOPLE !!! SOYLENT GREEN ARE PEOPLE !!
not far away?
I’ve just seen the news about you comming to Brazil for the Photoshop Conference. That is great! I hope I’ll get to be there so we can talk a little and get to know!
I heard about those pencils, and they reminded me of another macabre artist’s supply: caput mortuum, a pigment found in oil paintings from the 1600s to the late 19th Century. It was made from ground-up mummy (OK, “mummy wrappings”, but still…)! Nowadays they use iron oxide or hematite to get the approximate color, I assume to the Egyptologist’s great relief.
[Nice! At least they weren’t burning the mummies.]
I may have to update my will with “Please don’t make me into pencils, or let Keith Richards anywhere near me“…
[I hear that… –J.]
With those cremation pencils, I could still be sharp, even when I am dead.
People used me in life…they might as well use me when I am dead.
