Yes, yes, we know we already wrote you this week. We just can’t quit you. It’s just that when we said we’d have videos available from Death Salon: San Francisco soon, and then they were ready sooner than we thought, well, we just had to share.
For the first time, we’re offering videos of our Death Salon talks — almost 4 hours worth of lectures — to you deathlings the world over. We know a lot of you who’d like to come to a Death Salon haven’t been able to get out to one yet, so we hope these will help tide you over until we can do a Death Salon near you. Or maybe you just want to relive all the death positive magic. We know we enjoyed watching these talks again.
So here’s how it works: You pay $15 and then you can access all the content for as long as you want, and watch as many times as you want, until you up and die. The fee will go towards making it financially possible for us to continue putting on future Death Salon events. Anything we make goes right back into all the logistics that go into putting on events in different cities around the world. You can see a description of the full day’s of DS:SF’s content here. (We have videos of everything except for Cara Rose DeFabio’s performance piece and the Paa Joe & The Lion film clip, for copyright reasons). You can purchase access in our store and you will be emailed your access info within 24 hours.
Edited to add: there was a glitch in the store’s system that charges shipping when we set it not to, we’re trying to get the matter resolved but in the meantime if you order we will refund that portion of your payment.
Our videographer Bruno Huerta edited the videos so you can see the speaker and their slides at the same time (technology!) and there are some kind of funny, only at a live event things that happen (damn you Blue Angels!) but nothing so bad as to detract from the content of the talks. Spoiler alert: there was a wee bit of some unexpected excitement at the beginning of my talk. (Watch your step, deathlings.)
To whet your whistle, below is a video of our mortician Caitlin Doughty welcoming everyone to Death Salon: SF.
We love putting together these events for you, thanks so much for helping us continue to do that.
True ’til death,
— Megan Rosenbloom
