Music fans were shocked to hear the news on Wednesday that Jay Reatard had passed away (and then Teddy Pendergrass! RIP). Reatard played a memorable show at the 2008 Pop Explosion, and as you can see from Mark Black's Pop Ex story, he wanted to be remembered by more than just his stage antics.

What should be done with the dead agave plant?

  • Chop it up and chase it with lime and salt
  • Cast it in bronze and put it where Cornwallis was
  • Burn it ritually for biomass
  • Plant it in every white girl's succulent garden
