my story ends.
Current Mood: Melancholy but somewhat
Current Scent: Just clean.
my story ends, bury me in my hometown cemetary, near my mother if possible,
or near Mr. Hayes.
those whom I've known fondly, as many as you can. Remember that
Gilligan loathes Facebook and will likely never join it.
At the services, I want the following played, if possible:
Revolutionary Army of the Infant Jesus - "Psalm."
(That can be found on their album Mirror.)
Mode - "Black Day."
(That can be found on the "Stripped" CD single.)
Mode - "Death's Door." Use the Jazz Mix, if you can.
(That can be found on the US "Condemnation" CD single.)
my tombstone, along with whatever typical "Beloved friend, husband,
father, etc." text... I want the following: "He did
what he could to avoid suffering an ordinary life." This
can be on the front of the stone or the back.
me in my grey interview suit, wearing a purple shirt - the old sateen
Essante, if you will - with the Robert Daskal tie that I wore to my

an open casket is feasible - that is to say, if I haven't been mangled
by a car crash or something - then please go with the open casket.
Nothing fancy is necessary as far as the casket is concerned; you won't
be seeing it for long anyway, and it's stupid to overspend for something
my life. Eat some Mario's pizza after the services... cheese with
an artery-bursting amount of extra cheese and lots of fresh garlic.
Say "Hi" to the crew there for me, and assure them that I'll
be saying "Hi" to Mike.
See if some of the other local DJs I've known will have a memorial party
for me, with lots of 80s music. I want to be missed, and I want
to be remembered, but I want people to have fun.
my sons know that I loved them; never let them forget that, and never
shame them for being weird. It was their destiny before they were
ever born, and they will find someday that their weirdness is one of
their greatest blessings.
forget me. Please.
