REBEL WITH CLASS
If you’re getting dressed up for a fancy to-do, you might as well look your best. And while we can’t advise you on what knot to tie for any given occasion (seriously, what even IS a four-in-hand knot anyway?), we can give you some sage advice on what tie to choose: whichever one has BB-8 on it.
That little rolling bundle of astromech joy stole everyone’s hearts in Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens, and we figure some of that charisma is bound to rub off. This classy 100% silk tie manages to be subtly droid-licious, however. You’ll have to squint to make out the telltale BB-8 figures hidden in the swirly silver design of this ThinkGeek exclusive. You can wear it to your sister’s wedding without embarrassing your family, or sport it at a job interview for a boost of Rebel confidence. Please note: you’ll still have to settle on a knot though. Even BB-8 can’t help you with that. Because he doesn’t have hands.
On a dark, haunted night, a Russian oligarch dares a circle of international chefs to play the samurai game of 100 Candles--where each storyteller spins a terrifying tale of ghosts, demons and unspeakable beings--and prays to survive the challenge.
Inspired by the Japanese Edo period game of Hyakumonogatari Kaidankai, Hungry Ghosts reimagines the classic stories of yokai, yorei, and obake, all tainted with the common thread of food.
First course: With bad consequence, a ramen chef refuses to help a beggar, and a band of pirates get more (and less) than they were bargaining for after their encounter with a drowning woman turns ghastly.
Hungry Ghosts is cooked up by the infamous author and chef, Anthony Bourdain (Kitchen Confidential, Emmy-Award winning TV star of Parts Unknown) and acclaimed novelist Joel Rose (Kill, Kill, Faster, Faster, back again from their New York Times #1 best seller, Get Jiro!). Joining them this issue are stellar artists Alberto Ponticelli and Vanesa Del Rey, with amazing color by Jose Villarrubia, and a drop-dead cover by Paul Pope
