"Dead Artists Society"

In a time when real estate is so expensive, The Final Curtain may have a good idea here – combining a cemetary with an art museum to provide a permanent resting place, not just for the artist, but his/her final artistic work. OK, this site is at least 6 years old (but it apparently never got noticed by my circle of bloggery) and nothing’s been built yet. And most of the “proposed artworks” by still-living artists range from unsubtly satirical to very silly.

Presurfer stumbled over the propsal by Joseph Sullivan to keep a camera in his coffin to document him decomposing. It’s a particularly frightening thought that nothing will keep some Performance Artists from continuing their awful performances.

So what would I do if I had absolute carte blanche over the design of my gravesite? Probably an animatronic Bullwinkle moving its lips to quotes from my blog. In reality, I’d just want them to spell my name right in the gravestone (2 T’s and No H on that last name, grim reaper) – and do it in Bookman Bold Italic (with Swash).

How about you? This seems like a good time to work the Comments function for a totally creepy purpose…
