Last Confessions, The End of the World, and Video Tombstones
Since the world might end on December 21, 2012, it may be time for people to start recording their doomsday videos right now. What kind of secrets would you divulge in your video epitaph? And would it be truth or lies?
IS THERE ANYTHING YOU HAVE BEEN DYING TO SAY TO SOMEONE, OR TO THE WORLD?
IF THE WORLD DOES END SOON, THIS COULD BE YOUR LAST CHANCE TO SAY IT.
AND IF YOU ARE LUCKY ENOUGH TO BE READING THIS AFTER DECEMBER 21st...AND IF THE WORLD DIDN’T END.... (AMEN)....AT LEAST YOU COULD SAVE YOUR VIDEO EPITAPH AND RUN IT IN A VIDEO TOMBSTONE WHEN YOU DO PASS ON.
AND WHAT BETTER PLACE FOR LAST CONFESSIONS THAN A VIDEO TOMBSTONE...
...SO, WHAT KINDS OF THINGS WOULD YOU SAY IN YOUR VIDEO EPITAPH?
Would you say sweet things to loved ones? Would you say things you never had the chance to say nor never had the guts to say? Would it finally be time to make amends? Would you put forth some intimate, secret confessions in your final video...
and would it be truth or lies?
And if perchance, the world doesn’t end on December 21st, people could save their recordings for use in a video tombstone for when they finally do leave this world.
“Yessiree, “There’s no business like show business,” even from beyond the grave” according to Robert Barrows, the inventor of a video tombstone called the Video Enhanced Gravemarker”
And in addition to singing songs and saying sweet things to loved ones in these video epitaphs, we might also hear some very deep, dark, secret confessions from these video messages, and some of those secret confessions might also create some very interesting Free Speech issues... because who knows people might say for their final messages from their video tombstone...and will it be truth or lies?
VIDEO TOMBSTONES WILL CREATE SOME VERY INTERESTING FREE SPEECH ISSUES:
*What if someone confesses to a crime or makes an incrimination?
*What if they say something that’s true or untrue or not so nice about you?
*What if they say something that causes emotional stress?
*What if they say something anti-governmental?
*How can you pull the plug and whom can you sue?
*Worse yet, how can you collect?
VIDEO TOMBSTONES WILL ALSO HAVE A TREMENDOUS IMPACT ON MANY OTHER ASPECTS OF SOCIETY:
*Video Tombstones will change the way we look at life and death.
*Video tombstones will change the way that history is told.
*Video Tombstones will create some major changes in estate law.
*Video Tombstones will have a tremendous impact on the funerary industry
*And Video Tombstones will also create a whole new genre of storytelling, with all kinds of stories being told through video tombstones.
While Barrows was working on his patent application for the video enhanced gravemarker, he also wrote a book called "Cemetery of Lies."
"Cemetery of Lies" is a collection of intimate, secret confessions, as told from beyond the grave, through video tombstones. The stories are about life and love, sex and romance, good and evil, success and money, and Heaven and Hell, with insights and advice about almost every aspect of our lives.
Cemetery of Lies is an easy read, for a mass audience, and the writing is sexy, provocative and humorous, too.
