Happening tomorrow: frozen dead guys festival

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.

Last year at the festival, she debuted her The Newly-Dead Game based on the Newlywed Game TV show. Couples try to guess each other's last wishes, such as “what song does he/she want at the funeral?”

This EndNotes blog leads to some interesting places, for sure.
