Tomorrow, in Nederland, Colo., thousands of folks will gather for the Frozen Dead Guys Festival. It's in honor of people who freeze their bodies when they die, but really it's an excuse for a music/artsy festival in the cold of winter.
I heard about the festival from Gail Rubin, author of A Good Goodbye: Funeral Planning for Those Who Don't Plan to Die. She takes a humurous spin on death and gets away with it, because she gets a serious message across -- the need to preplan.
This EndNotes blog leads to some interesting places, for sure.
