    The last thing you need is a casket, right? No seriously, it might be the last thing you need. Why not get started on it today so you can design the resting place of your dreams? Or write your obit that reflects your life? Carpe diem and make your way to Before I Die Festival sponsored by A Good Goodbye and Albuquerque's preeminent thanatologist, Gail Rubin, the Festival hosts a casket building workshop on Tuesday, Oct. 30 from noon to 1:30pm at Fathers Building Futures, as well as an obituary writing course later that day at French Funerals on University from 4 to 6:30pm. Both events are free, check beforeidienm.com for more information. It would be a grave mistake to miss out. (Maggie Grimason)

    Are you ready to stare into the bony face of death—smell its swampy breath and feel its cold hand upon your breast? Are you looking to taste the wine of existential oblivion? Tired of the same ol' mini golf and superhero movies on date night? Come on down to the lab and take the Office of the Medical Investigator Tour this Thursday, Nov. 1, at 3:30pm and see how the pros examine death. Space for the free tour is extremely limited, so make sure to register by visiting beforeidienm.com. Recommendations for appropriate attire will be given ahead of time. (Joshua Lee)
