This is not a joke. You can actually have your remains made into a vinyl record.

We have come so far that if you are so inclined, you could have yours or a loved one’s remains pressed into a vinyl record. Jason Leach loves vinyl records and he runs a few music labels from his home in Scarborough on the North East coast of England. He has also founded a very different vinyl venture – he presses the ashes of people who have been cremated into records which serve as a sonic memorial to their lives.

Now I need to find out whether someone in Alaska could ship cremated remains to have this done, just knowing the technology exists is pretty cool.

This could be the ultimate way to honor a music lover.  Perhaps the hardest part would be what record do you choose?
