Sunday Sundries 5

Hurrah! It’s that time of the week again and we know this is what you’ve all been waiting for. Another Sunday Sundries!

While not necessarily a new video, I rediscovered this in my bookmarks and wanted to share it with all of you lovely people. What a commendable project and a definite return to some of the old ways that have been lost in communities due to modernity and new generations moving away.

Next up, morticians doing magic tricks and chocolate-covered caskets? It can only be a fun funeral! Great article about the phenomenon from HuffPo.

From fun funerals to tasty ones, Death Salon’s own Sarah Troop has a wonderful article on Modern Loss, all about funerary food. Definitely one to make you feel peckish.

I’m fascinated by death and technology, especially how we discuss dying through social media. Here are two great resources: an article about live-tweeting a person’s death and a brilliant infographic about our ‘digital demise’ from DeadSoci.al.

Finally, something pretty. HT to Caitlin Doughty of The Order of the Good Death who shared this on Facebook earlier in the week. The picture comes with an interesting article too!
