La historia de Toby y Sheila: una pata que adopto un perrito, en una granja de los Mac Kenzie en USA.
Does a dead body count for a 2nd or more person in the commuter lane if you are driving a hearse? It does if it is a dead cop.
A simple mortuary science related lesson to finally answer that nagging question. What exactly is the difference between a casket and a coffin? Some dry humor with a few of our apprentices just messing around.
For those of you taking notes, coffins are designed from an anthropodial point of view and caskets are not. Watch for that on the monthly exam!
There are of course many misconceptions in and around the funeral service occupation concerning many things because the general public simply has no clue or limited exposure to behind the scenes information. The extreme differences between caskets and coffins is one such example, and although completley obvious to those in the business, people on the outside have no clue in many cases.
Answering yet another e-mail, this time with a question about whether I have ever seen a dead human body sit up.
Not all dead bodies make noises. Some of the noises coming from dead bodies are rather loud while other times they are barely noticable. I frequently hear air escaping from bodies because in many cases I am on the scene of a recent death where air is still trapped in the body's lungs and the body is still warm and without rigor.

This is NEW previously unseen footage from Jordan's personal VLOG files and the most recent footage is an in depth and behind the scenes look at the day-to-day operations and surroundings of a large scale crematorium. Dead bodies, smoking crematoriums, and some really unique footage make these newest clips quite interesting and when Jordan needs access to otherwise confidential areas not intended for the public view, he gets it. During the month of August Jordan will begin uploading additional videos all of which will be appearing on Amazon****'s VIDEO ON DEMAND and all videos will be in support of his books and/or TV shows. Those are from his VLOG files. Additionally, two long play documentaries of at least 1 hour will be featured on Amazon**** this year. The documentaries are 100% guaranteed to blow you away.

Theodore Mead Fegley has always been the smartest person he knows. By age 12, he was in high school, and by 15 he was attending a top-ranking university. And now, at the tender age of 18, he's on the verge of proving the Riemann Hypothesis, a mathematical equation that has mystified academics for almost 150 years. But only days before graduation, Mead suddenly packs his bags and flees home to rural Illinois. What has caused him to flee remains a mystery to all but Mead and a classmate whose quest for success has turned into a dangerous obession.
At home, Mead finds little solace. His past ghosts haunt him; his parents don't understand the agony his genius has caused him, nor his desire to be a normal kid, and his dreams seem crushed forever. He embarks on a new life's journey -- learning the family business of selling furniture and embalming the dead--that disappoints and surprises all who knew him as "the young Fegley genius."
Equal parts academic thriller and poignant coming-of-age story, LIFE AFTER GENIUS follows the remarkable journey of a young man who must discover that the heart may know what the head hasn't yet learned.
In this clip I am doing the cosmetics on a deceased individual for a viewing before a cremation. The family requested a low cost service with a simple private viewing. Of course I accomodated their wishes.
NOTE: IF you cannot afford an expensive funeral and want a viewing, (and in today's economy, who can?) TELL, (DON'T ASK,) the funeral director to place your loved one a dressing table. Place a pillow under their heads, drape the body with a passing quilt, and make them look comfy. Then hold a simple viewing in some location of the funeral home that is suitable. IT WORKS! It is a CHEAP, EFFECTIVE, and nice way to see your loved one and pay respects in a dignified fashion. You do NOT need to use make-up or embalm a dead body for a viewing in ANY STATE IN MOST CASES. (IF IN DOUBT, CALL YOUR LOCAL HEALTH DEPARTMENT, MEDICAL EXAMINER, CORONER, OR BOARD OF FUNERAL DIRECTOR/EMBALMER LICENSING.)
Of course you will NOT see the deceased's face in this video or ANY of my videos for that matter but in case you are wondering, YES I do have a signed and notarized release by the family in ALL CASES.
My videos are for educational and information purposes and to some extent, while being done in good taste, entertainment purposes.
In ALL of my videos about the book, I talk in and around the subject of death, dying and the funeral business as a whole, but at no time do I ever show the face of the deceased.
IF you are looking for nasty blood and guts, you have the wrong guy. Let's be respectful people.
