How to help your family and friends prepare your funeral:
○● A "Death Can Dance" - Tutorial ●○
Create a step-by-step guide explaining what you want your loved ones to do once your death is confirmed.
There are million ways of helping family and friends wave goodbye to you. You might even write and hold your own funeral speech. All you need to know is how to use a camera.
Keep in mind that unexpected death may put people in a state of shock. Also keep in mind that - as long as you live - death may arrive anytime anywhere. Now is the time to prepare everything you can to help making things easier. Maybe even beautiful.
Just in case you should for some stupid reason burn down together with your step-by-step guide you can e.g. shoot a video and upload it so the world knows at least one song you really want to - maybe not hear - but feel on your funeral.
This song makes it impossible for me not to get a full-body-excitement. That's why I want my family and friends to experience it once I am gone.

You want to be a Monster? Good news for you:
You already are.
Or - at least - a part of you is.
It's this judging, weird and greedy creature that picks up the most useless fears for you, it scares your friends and pushes you back into your own personal nightmares when you least expect it.
Instead of pretending it's not there:
Allow it to dance to the surface for once and listen to its desires and fears, the sounds that may come out of it, see how ugly, how embarrassing or funny it can get.
Don't be scary. Just try to be. Invite the darkness to do the rest.
If people laugh or leave - don't take it personal. We are educated to react like that.
They probably wonder why they never gave it a try themselves.
Or they prefer to go on pretending to be clean.
If you can encourage somebody to stay in the trouble for a deep dance -
Staying in the trouble has become an issue of responsibility in these precarious times of anxiety - whether you consider yourself an artist or not.

Some impressions of recent Fake Healings:
Feist, Anna Nass'gschwiz and I aka 'Prushka' fake - healing the masses, imagining or fighting for the hearts to stay sober from grudge.
It sometimes appears to me that german audiences need a tiny drop of commotion in order to get their asses moving.

A friend couldn't let go of his lost love so we decided to fake the act of losing for the sake of a photo.
Not really a fake healing but sometimes rules are there to be broken. As he left we had found many different aspects of losing and we were both smiling.
