Aren’t the hands on Nimoy’s grave marker wrong?

I figured one was the back side, and the other was the front side. Dunno...

EDIT: Apparently it's really this:
When you see “Spock hands” on a tomb, you are actually looking at “Cohen hands,” which may also be referred to as the “Hands of Kohanim.” This hand gesture signifies that the deceased is a Jewish person who descended from the priestly Tribe of Cohen.

Well, I forgot he was Jewish and derived the Vulcan salutation from a ritual, so both hands would be correct for the ritual. But shouldn’t the thumbs be out? They look tucked in.

F#@* my life ... this is what I am doing on a Saturday night?

As others have said, I don't see anything morbid or weird in your pastime at all.

He says as he reaches past the head in his freezer and grabs a popsicle.

I went to see Bruce Lee's grave in Seattle. It's quite an attraction for many tourists, especially from Asia.

Head in freezer? How dare you accuse me of such a monstrosity! I'll have you know that I don't currently have any heads on ice. Just a hand, some leftover thigh meat, and a breast. Should throw the breast away; it has been there awhile; freezer-burned.

I was always hoping DeForest Kelley's grave would say "He's dead, Jim", but alas - De was cremated.

They have markers at many graves of those who were cremated at Pierce Brothers Westwood Village Cemetery. Some of the ashes were even interred in walls above ground, including Florence Henderson, Jack Klugman, Doris Roberts, Patty Andrews, Brian Keith, Janet Leigh, David Nelson, and Truman Capote. Burt Lancaster has his ashes buried in the ground.

Speaking of Jack Lemmon. He used to tell the story of the time he, Matthau, and their wives took a trip of Europe together. One day they visited the concentration camp at Dachau. While they were there Matthau and his wife got in a big argument. They were still fighting when they got in the car to leave, at which point Matthau said to his wife, "See what you did. You ruined my trip to Dachau!"

Re: Morbid curiosity or icky?

I thought that first pic looked familiar as I've seen the Danzig one before (in Eerie Von's photo book I believe). So you were copying his pose? Nice!

As long as you didn't kill him, it's fine.

Iíve got a million questions.

What year was the original taken? Must have been very early on. Thereís no little fence around the grave yet.

Did you ask permission to jump the fence for your picture or just go for it?

According to the photographer, Eerie Von, the photo with Danzig was taken September 25, 1984 (per Von's book "Misery Obscura"), so after the Misfits broke up and during the early days of the Samhain band.

I learned that jumping that fence is extremely frowned upon.
It was the last part of Graceland so I figured fuck it, if we get tossed we are done anyway, but someone else went over to put some shit on his grave and all hell broke loose. So I just knelt in the grass and photoshopped that onto one of the photos I took when I got home.

Re: Morbid curiosity or icky?

Some guy bought the car Bonnie and Clyde were gunned down in and used to take it around the country on tour. Saw it when I was a kid. The seats were covered with dry blood. Bonnie's blood stained sweater was still laying in the front seat. Morgue photos of their bullet ridden bodies were also on display. Now that's morbid. The photo of JFK dead, his eyes open, is pretty fucking morbid also.

The sensational and graphic pictures of the Black Dahlia murder were morbid and beyond creepy. Probably the darkest murder scene that I would ever care to see. Can't be erased from memory.

Bruce and Brandon's graves are the only celebrity graves I've been to.
