6 feet under in style

I never knew that coffins were supposed to break down and decompose -- I've been watching too many horror movies.
Looks like it could double as a Yakima carrier -- who needs a hearse!

I didn't think they were supposed to do that either, I thought quite the opposite actually.

those are pretty stylish though.

if you want a more traditional look, did you know you can pick up a coffin on line at:

lol- not a bad idea!

To Whom it May Concern:

When I go..please put me in the cargo box, strap me to the roof of my car, do a few high speed turns down the PCH in Cali, and then launch me off the highest cliff you can find!

Kinda like Hunter S. Thompson, but he had his ashes stuffed in fireworks and lit up in a show at his home just outside of Aspen.

I always believe in cremation -- it's the most poetic and makes enviornmental sense.

I want to know why you were looking up coffins.

It is cool though, environmentally minded, new style, and your choice of colors.  I want one in blue of course ;)

I just read a really interesting article in the New York Times Magazine last weekend.  It was about the founder of the company.  It all started when he had to arrange the burial of his father, who was a very discriminating architect, and knew that his father wouldn't approve of being buried inside a gawdy ornate oak casket adorned with brass, but that was pretty much the  style available out there and casket manufacturers have exclusive rights to sell their coffins in most funeral homes so there wasn't much choice.   There wasn't anything out there that was modern, simple, tasteful, lightweight, and fully understood the burial process and what happens afterwards.

My choice would be the black-red color.
