Unencumbered By Sobriety is the name of my Bon Scott era AC/DC, Grateful Dead, and Bob Marley fusion jazz ensemble tribute outfit.

Look at them farkers, that's the way you do it,
Unencumbered by sobriety,
That ain't workin, that's one way to do it,
Or not how I hope my friends dispose of me.

And he's on here, what's that? Drunk horsey noises?
Shiatpostin' on the internet from MLP?
Now that ain't workin, that's the way I did it,
That's the name of my biography.

My plans are easy:

Cremate my body, and then pour the ashes into Lake Chelan....close to where the lake is at its deepest.

Rem that classic Tom Petty vid where he nicked a body out of the morgue?

My nerdy moment for today:

Lake Chelan is the third deepest lake in The United States. Crater Lake is in first place, and the silver medal goes to Lake Tahoe.

My friends are smart enough to use kerosene.

Has anyone seen Grand Theft Parson? Is it worth the viewing?

A Gram Parsons thread needs some goddamn fantastic music to go with it. There's a good reason he was called God's own singer.

Are you really going to let dying due to playing silly buggers in the desert stop you from playing silly buggers in the desert?

I stumbled on that story while visiting Joshua Tree. I stopped at a random spot to look around, and noticed a little shrine. Things like "We love you Gram" were written on a rock and there were some flowers and trinkets.

Googling when I got home, I found it was the spot where they attempted to cremate him. I knew the Burrito Bros. and Gram, but I had never heard the story before.

I'd go with scattering my ashes from a coffee can on a windy day above the Pacific coast.

Right up there with "No, officer, I'm not slurring my words. I'm speaking in cursive."

I've left instructions for a Viking funeral in the vein of S.O.B.

My dad and his friends all said they want their ashes scattered up in the Wind River  Mountains where they would go backpacking and fishing. The first of them passed away a few years ago, aortic dissection like John Ritter had. They didn't make it up to the mountains, but I believe he is in a favorite fishing spot. It was more for the friends left behind, and as they don't do the hike 10 miles up to the glacier fed lakes anymore, a favorite fishing spot was where they wanted to remember Bill.

Sometimes for me the words I write or speak line up and form something clever.  But I don't think I've ever hit the mark so perfectly as whoever coined that one.

All funeral ceremonies are theatre for the living. When you're dead you can't care what happens to your earthly remains. If this helped them cope with the loss of their friend then good.

My musical partner died a few years ago. His funeral is what I hope my funeral will be. No body in a casket. No sermon. Just a whole bunch of his friends and musicians he'd worked with gathered at a bar we used to be regular performers at. We got up on stage and told stories about good times we had working with him. We talked about his love of music. We played our favourite songs we played with him. His body, which was in a ravaged state due to COPD, was off somewhere else being useful in a university.

That's what I want.

That and a death so fantastic that it makes for a Fark greenlight.

"May your death be Fark worthy" sounds like a good validation for any of our lives.

Those who care for me in this life would know a solemn, traditional funeral when I die would piss me off.  While I don't need a fireball in a national park kind of send-off, I do want some killer music and anyone attending who doesn't wish to be encumbered by sobriety should feel free to behave accordingly, so long as they have a safe way to get home.
