DISPOSAL
I wish to be cremated, my ashes kept or scattered in a location determined by my parents.

COFFIN
This is entirely up to my parents.

RELIGION
This is entirely up to my parents.

GUESTS
Anyone is welcome, but I specifically wish to invite my family members, particularly my parents and Nick B., my close friends (they know who they are)

MUSIC
I wish for the following people to each pick a song for the occasion that they associate with me: Mom Dad Nick B. Nick S. BUT, if they do not select them already, I wish to have played (in addition to any selections by the aforementioned): Paul Haig "Something Good" Bill Drummond "King Of Joy" Arthur Russell "Being It" New Order "Face Up (Live from the Roskilde Festival 7/1/1984)"

READINGS
I wish for my mother, father, cousin Nick, Nick S., and Kelsey (if she would like) to read something about me at my funeral. I would also like this to be read: "Unless you came for the free pizza, if you are here, I loved you very deeply during my life, and I will now love you even more, for all eternity. Death is something I was completely unafraid of, and something I sort of looked forward to in a perverse way. Not because I didn't love life - because I did - but because it is as integral a part of being mortal as being alive, and one that you can never know until you actually do it, kind of like tipping a cow. As all of you know, I have always been and will always be a total fool, but I hope that what I have to say will be helpful to you in some way. The two things that I found to be really important in life were love and joy. Nothing else really matters. And love is everywhere. Love is the natural state of being; we need only pause to see it, and we will see it most fully if we are ourselves, if we follow what we know in our hearts will bring us joy. Following joy leads to the recognition of love, and also to finding those who love us most deeply and open our eyes to the profound love that is within us." (to be continued)

EPITAPH
It is only being.

OBITUARY
I would like my cousin Nick to write my obituary.
