There’s a company that will press your ashes into a vinyl

The question here isn’t will you or won’t you, that’s an argument for another time, the real question is what song would you pick…


The maniacs (I mean that in the most endearing way possible) over at And Vinyly (clever as fuck name) have found a way for us to live on in song, literally. So I ask this, what song would you pick? And before the Vinyl collectors come out of the woodwork and come at my dome with the “Uh Matt, Vinyls hold more than one song”. I know, but to make this decision a lot easier on everyone, let’s just stick with one, okay Ryan Gosling?


My pick is the timeless classic by Sir Elton John, ‘Goodbye Yellow Brick Road’. If you are not familiar, listen and enjoy.

An all-time great song that stretches across every genre of music. Not only is it great, it sends the message i’m looking for. Which is…sure it’s a great song, but its also super sad. People are going to play my dead body at a party and there won’t be a dry eye in the house. Maybe you should have been nicer to me when I was not a vinyl record.



HBO Released Another Teaser For Game of Thrones Season 6 & I Still Don’t Know What The Hell Is Happening

Game of  Thrones is a little over two months away from season 6, and if this latest teaser trailer is any indication, then I still don’t know what the hell is going on. Season 5 ended with a lot of uncertainty, such as what are the fates of Jon Snow, Sansa and Stannis. To answer those questions, Game of Thrones gives us a teaser of one of the most deranged rooms in existence, with every character’s head stashed neatly in their own cubby. Game of Thrones prides itself on the mystery/fantasy element, so it looks like we’ll have to wait until the actual premiere to get some answers. I just really hope Stannis is still alive so he can continue to be the unsung hero of medieval grammar.


Music Monday – Van Halen

Over the weekend my brother and I were lucky enough to fall into possession of a large collection of vinyls. So we did what any level headed, music loving human would do; we had a record draft. Luckily for me, and for my brother, we both have VERY different tastes in music. I was able to score all the hair metal I could carry and he made away with a sizable stack of Doo-Wops and Motown. Here is one of my scores from the weekend.
