Day 139: To be embalmed

This is a tribute to my all time favourite show, Six Feet Under by HBO. I absolutely adore that show and I could easily watch all 5 series/seasons any day. And this shot is inspired by one of the scenes from the show's starting credits.... :)

 

A lot of people get freaked out by death, thinking it's pretty morbid and scary and melancholic... Some friends think I'm so weird when I'm not scared by it, nothing to be scared about if I'm a Christian cos I have faith of where I'm going :)

 

The show is totally awesome on so many levels, and one of the things which made it totally funny (black comedy) is that they always have a death at the beginning of the show, and the rest of the show revolves around that death, planning for that (dead) character's funeral etc. Brilliant stuff.

 

My obsession with Six Feet Under even went as far as making a day trip to Rose Hill in LA, a funeral home (OK so I have contacts...) but I walked into a room full of caskets and loved every minute of it(!)

Hahahaha.... Sorry to freak you goes out. I'm not really a freak... (so she says...)
