I want this Thundertaker more than any Lamborghini or mustang, or pretty much any other vehicle in the history of mankind.
I love that pic! I can’t believe everyone isn’t reblogging it! I’m gonna reblog it again tomorrow morning, afternoon, and evening! THEY WILL LOVE YOU EVEN IF I HAVE TO MAKE THEM!
Preview of Funeral Sauce’s 2014 Holiday Gift Guide
Ear spoons, primarily used in Asia, haven’t ever really picked up in the US, mostly due to our fear of inserting rigid metal objects in our ears that could easily make you go deaf if you’re using this on the drive into work and you hit a bump, like I almost did this morning.
BUY IF: you want to save your loved ones literally hundreds of cents on q-tips.
DONT BUY IF: you don’t want to see this constantly hanging out of someone’s ear, because it will become an obsession.
1960 “thundertaker” cadillac hearse by superior coach works & bryan fuller hot rods. beautiful.
once, a few years ago. i have a friend that lives up there somewhere in one of those little hillside villages. not sure where in maine i wanna go though when i’m up there in a few weeks! any suggestions of things i gotta see or do?
also, i’m gonna be on tour up that way in a couple months!
that’s a new one for me. maybe that’s regional? where is that at?
anyone else heard this before?
did you mean “do you have any tips for getting into the funeral industry?”
honestly, I think that whole thing is part of the bullshit sterilization of death and funeral industry terms like “funeral coach” vs “hearse”. the excuse we make is that “coffins” have six sides and “caskets” have four, but really I feel like the industry shies away from “coffin” because of the morbidity that’s associated with it (in the US).
they’ve been making six-sided boxes and four-sided boxes for burials forever, and do you think people stressed over “casket” vs “coffin” then? I don’t know for sure because I don’t know the history of both words, but I’d guess not. my bet is that it arose out of the sterilization movement that’s been happening for the last 50 years or so.
and what about custom caskets/coffins that are oblong and don’t have distinguishable sides, and you can’t count them? does that make them caskets or coffins? you certainly can’t say “it’s neither,” so to me, that means the terms are exchangeable.
also, I think “coffin” has a romanticism and history to it, and romanticism of death is something else that North American funeral service tries to move away from, and maybe that’s not good.
so in my personal life, I use them interchangeably. but professionally? of course I say “casket” #slavetothewage
lol what the hell
