I’M AT THE CORNER JUST IN TIME TO SEE THE BUS FLY BY
Michael Crichton’s Jurassic Park novel was published in 1990, and the eponymous movie came out just three years later. You know. NASA was launching the Hubble Space Telescope. The web didn’t yet exist for people who weren’t Tim Berners-Lee. And the macarena was a thing.
This hoodie’s design gives a shoutout to the franchise’s 90s roots. The sleeves and hood lining have a very early-90s Saved by the Bell aesthetic. We can imagine an episode where the girls are planning a Prehistoric Sock Hop at Bayside High School. Slater and Zack are competing to impress the girls with their mastery of caveman fashion (which Slater’s gonna win hands-down because Jessie’s always calling him a caveman), and Screech, well-meaning as always, decides to go to the dance dressed as a T. Rex, which terrifies all the students until Mr. Belding unmasks him. Cue the laugh track and roll the credits.
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
