Memento Mori

A Tale of Two Sisters, 2003, Ji-woon Kim

When I was young  I'd daydream about my funeral. I'm not sure if this was a common thing for kids to do but maybe I was an uncommon kid. I was born with the umbilical cord wrapped around my neck and that's probably the closest I've ever come. Throughout my life I've lost people near and dear to me, much more than anyone should by the time they're 31.

Please stop it - I miss you terribly.

Anyway here are some songs I put together for when my time comes. I made this mix about six years ago:
