Witness Elvis Presley singing "Are You Lonesome Tonight" at his last earthly performance in 1977. You’ll definitely wanna watch the whole thing. My favorite part is when he loses his shit during the spoken word section. So funny. So depressing.
Also grimly fascinating: MyDeathSpace.com, a site featuring MySpace users who have gone to the Great Beyond. Clicking on the picture of an individual takes you to their page, which more often than not has become a forum for public mourning. It’s a little disturbing, but certainly interesting from a sociological perspective.
