IT’S NO BIG DEAL
Aphorisms are friendly little reminders of how to live your life. And when they’ve been crosstitched by your grandmother and hung on your wall, it’s like she’s always there. Watching you. Reminding you that home is supposed to be sweet or exactly how the alphabet goes. Which is kind of pointless, because you’re going to have to hum the tune anyhow. So instead we decided to print (ain’t nobody got time to stitch) this aphorism from Tina Belcher on a tee. This way you can always remember – whatever it is? It’s no big deal.
This crossstitch style sampler design has the words “Don’t Have a Crap Attack” on the front of this white ladies’ tee with a crosstitched flower and burger design and Tina’s face (uncrosstitched). 100% cotton. Machine wash cold. Tumble dry low or lay flat to dry. Imported.
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
