Much as I love the nostalgic whiff of vinyl records, I’m not sure I’d want to be memorialised in this McGuinness Flint When I’m Dead and Gone sort-of-way: By having my ashes pressed into a favourite LP by startup And Vinyly (rhymes with “And Finally”), as can be read by clicking here.


Seems a bit strange to me (on the bright side, at least it isn’t a picture disk), and knowing my luck I’d probably end up covered in scratches, jumping all over the place and filed in the wrong album sleeve, most likely one of those awful early 1970s Top of the Pops cover version compilations some thoughtful auntie gave as a Christmas present.


Though I guess you could convert it to an mp3 so your loved ones can carry you around on their iPods. Maybe Apple could be persuaded to start charting an iDied service on iTunes, of top LPs people are being memorised on?
