I slowly am building up an image of things I want done for any wake, funeral, or gathering when I die.
It’s kind of odd to me, because I’ve always said that I don’t care. That people should do whatever allows them to feel better. That goes even for whether I’m cremated, buried, or turned into Soylent Green.
But over the past couple years, some things have slowly crept in that I’ve decided I do want done.
The other is to play a clip from a movie. A short clip from Jacob’s Ladder (1990).
Tim’s character has been seeing increasingly disturbing things – monsters or demons – including his own wife and friends. They seem to be everywhere.
The something happens and a change takes place. Danny’s words give it context. They were later sampled in the song “Rabbit In Your Headlights” by UNKLE and featuring Radiohead’s Thom Yorke. The song’s title is actually another nod to the film.
