New cremation option turns ashes into flat, polished stones
Parting Stone takes the ashes created by cremation and turns them into 60 to 80 polished stones. “What solidified remains are is a design solution for the uncomfortable experience of ashes,” Crowe said. He knew he’d become stones, Crowe said, and some of his grandfather’s stones sit on his office desk. Busch Funeral Homes offers the service and was part of Parting Stone’s initial rollout, owner Jim Busch said. The ashes look so much like real stones that Busch and Crowe said you can’t tell they aren’t real rocks.mlive.com

The 'Cats' trailer is here, and it's horrifying the internet
Alas, if Twitter's anything to go by, the internet was more mystified than enchanted -- and in some cases, downright terrified. In a teaser clip released earlier this week, director Tom Hooper lauded the movie's use of "digital fur technology" to create "the most perfect covering of fur." When the cats were revealed, however -- an uncanny amalgamation of the actors' human faces and a feline-adjacent body -- social media users were less than convinced.

The trailer raised another perturbing question: In a world where cats have human faces and loosely human physiques, where do actual humans, owners of the colossal beds and sofas and chandeliers the cats play on, fit in?
