Look at this lovely package I got from Amazon the other day:
I was not expecting the beautiful embossed tin packaging. And I wasn't entirely sure which movies would be included. When you see the words "Howling Trilogy", you'd usually make a few assumptions.
You'd assume that there are only three movies in the series. But no, The Howling has approximately eight billion sequels. But I'll let that slide, because it doesn't say "The Howling Trilogy". Nope, this is just a trilogy of Howling movies.
You'd assume it would at least be a sequential collection of sequels. But no, this is The Howling III, V, and VI.
Maybe they are tied together as a trilogy because they follow a common plot thread. But no, the only thing they have in common is that they all have werewolves. This is just a random collection of three Howling movies.
But I really don't care, because damn, look at that packaging. Plus, I've long thought of The Howling V as one of my favourite movies ever, but I only saw it once when I was a kid, so a second viewing might snuff out the rosy glow that nostalgia provides.
[clumsy segue] Speaking of things that transform [/clumsy segue]
Here are some pictures from the Body Worlds show that is at the Toronto Science Centre, where real dead people are transformed into artsy / educationy installations.
His junk is totally about to smash into the hurdle. :(
Some people were grumpy about me taking pictures. Because, you know, nobody else on the entire internet will take pictures, and free advertising is bad.
It was as fascinating this time as last time I went, with lots of new plastinates on display. Seeing the bodies up close is satisfying on a few levels. There's the education, knowing how the awe-inspiring machine that is the human body works. There's the "wow, one of those jiggly thing sitting out there is sitting right here inside me too" level. And there's the morbid curiosity we all have; just the visceral thrill of seeing a dead body.
Definitely worth checking out if you're in the area.
