Slow-motion graveside rain fan

This was inspired by [theleopard] annotation: "I've always wanted to be buried and have Ed Harris visit my grave in the rain, wearing his navy full dress uniform, water cascading over the brim of his hat (preferably in slow motion)…", so this idea is for an upwards-pointing graveside fan to slow down falling raindrops. The de luxe version of this will play sad piano music and supply rain for the fan to slow down, if it's a sunny day.

       Perhaps use some kind of lightweight viscous gel instead of water?

       I want film-noir rain... stained the colour of milk to make it show up on film.

       I like it, but feel as though the only time you'll get a decent effect is if Ed and your gravestone are inside the cargo hold of a plummeting aircraft, effectively slowing down gravity. Still, [+] for trying to make my dreams come true.

       EDIT - Did the idea get deleted?

       You could arrange to be buried inside the hold of a plummeting aeroplane.

       But for how long?!

       This would be great in a Sin-City-Film -Noir-Bruce-Willis- way .....   

       We would want Leonard Nimoy.

       It looks as though it did, [theleopard]. But it lives on in our memories.
