David Cronenberg on the set of Videodrome (1983)
"When I was 19, my girlfriend and I were going to study in Paris. Our boyfriends came to the docks to see us off. Right as we were getting on the ship, my friend’s boyfriend said to her: ‘If you go, I won’t wait for you.’ So she turned around and decided to stay. My fiance saw this and told me: ‘I won’t wait for you either.’
I said: ‘Don’t!’”
“i haven’t eaten anything since last year”
“i remember 2013 like it was yesterday”
“i think i’m pregnant! haven’t gotten my period since last year”
Complete Set of Canopic Jars, 900-800 BC
This set of canopic jars was made to contain the internal organs removed from the body during the mummification process. The four sons of the god Horus were believed to protect these organs. The head of each son was made as the lid to each jar. Egyptians believed that the dead would need their organs in the afterlife:
- The jackal-headed Duamutef protected and held the stomach
- The falcon-headed Qebehsenuef, the intestines
- The baboon-headed Hapi, the lungs
- Human-headed Imsety, the liver
