Before I dive right into my thoughts on this movie, I’m curious if any of you have seen it. If so what did you think? #Mortuary : A family moves to a rural town & takes over an abandoned funeral home rumored to be haunted. #Review : I think we can all agree that #TobeHooper movies were a little questionable in his later years. Despite that I have a soft spot for them. Particularly this movie. It’s such a atmospheric, psychedelic low budget camp fest. It’s starts off strong with an interesting premise, like-able characters, good acting, & an eerie setting but teeters off towards the halfway point into full blown ridiculousness. Which honestly I don’t mind. It makes for a one of a kind viewing experience. Sure the ending is laughable because of the shitty CGI effects. But it makes up for it with it’s the strong makeup, particularly in the zombies. They’re gooey & bizarre & the black fungus is creepy. Speaking of which this movie is grimy as hell. It’ll make your skin crawl with how gross & oozy some scenes are. There’s also some effective scares sprinkled in. Specifically the legend of Bobby Fowler. While the dialogue is okay & generic there’s some eccentric & odd moments that really grab your attention. Specifically the whole “graveyard baby” bit. It’s odd & hilarious. Overall this movie isn’t as bad as most people think it is. Sure it’s can be cheesy as hell but that exactly what it’s supposed to be. It’s mindless, fun, bizarre, over the top & creepy. So if you don’t mind weird low budget flicks I recommend giving this a watch. But be warned the ending is seriously strange.
THIS is how I feel when thinking about green burials—body returned to the earth that sustained it, no barriers to decomposition, no chemicals, no silly vaults or expensive coffins, gradually becoming one with the earth again. And it looks so peaceful doesnt it? #greenburial Anyone know the artist?
Happy Friday, I am off to tea and picking up a gift for my friend. She is covering all my days so I can take my trips to CA and Nashville this summer. I am also looking into mortuary schools for my degree lately. I haven’t picked one yet but soon. 🖤
Can I say AMEN to words that I spoke?? I didnt originate this quote but it so succinctly expresses my feelings about life and death that I use it at the end of my death planning consultations. A woman named June Graham created this beauty and I’m so touched by it. Thanks June!!!! #letuslive

How often do you find yourself rushing to "save time"? How's that working out for you??? We rush and hurry thinking that we can save time, but in the unending walk towards death that is life, time cannot be saved, created, bought, made, or even wasted--it is simply used. How are you USING your time today? Thanks for watching and please comment, and SHARE if it resonates (sharing is caring : ) #hurryup
Tomorrow I present home death care to my local hospice that I work with. If all goes well, workshops for families will begin on how to have a closer relationship with death and their loved ones by caring for them at home or at the hospice facility.
