Your Grandpa's New EP

Right before people die, they usually say their goodbyes to the people they love. But now some British folks might have one last wish: "turn me into a record, please."

For £2,000, you can ensure that your ashes will be sprinkled into the vinyl, according to Consequence of Sound. A record can be made with all the information on the label that would typically go on your gravestone. You can choose to have music put on the record by the artist of your choice (and I hope you don't choose Creed), or perhaps you'd rather have your will recorded. There's even an option to have a song written about you. Talk about "sick new tunes."
