Deadpool 2 is no longer the #1 R-rated film. More on that at the end after we talk about movies and the dead.
Respect the dead, yes, I get it.
But. They are dead. Gone. Not coming back the way they were. It’ s going to happen to everybody reading this unless someday they find the key to immortality is unlocked.
The following story is making me not wanting to be buried in a cemetery with others …
Lafayette Memorial Park in Fayetteville, N.C. planned a free, kid-friendly film night with snacks scheduled for Oct. 26, according to a Facebook event post. The post said that the movie night was being held in honor of the late grandparents of Heather Bosher, the owner of the park. Bosher wrote in the post that her grandparents enjoyed going to the movies.Cemetery cancels Halloween movie night after criticism by families | TribLIVE.com
That sounds like a neat idea, yes?
But, no, the event was canceled because relatives of the deceased complained that the event was disrespectful to the dead.
See, this is why I probably will not be buried next to other people in a cemetery. Maybe I’ll put a statement in my will to cremate me and take a tiny bit of ashes into movie theaters and shake a little bit of me on the floor. Sure, that’s morbid, probably illegal if actually executed, and my remains will be swept away. But then we’ll all be dust in the wind someday.
