CAT GOT YOUR TONGUE?
We happen to be experts in kitten shoes here. Not kitten heels, mind you. Or shoes FOR cats (Kitten Mittens!). Shoes with a cat theme. Our collection is currently down to half a dozen pairs, so we feel pretty confident in stating that generally cat-themed shoes come in two flavors: cat face on the toe or repeating cat pattern fabric on the shoe.
Irregular Choice, of course, had to do it different. Because different is what they do. These sneakers have tongues that feature a fuzzy grey cat head with pink bow. The outside is made of sparkly pink and black with grey knitted fabric and accents of iridescent faux snakeskin. And because that isn’t enough, the black soles have an LED embedded in them that has step-activated rainbow blinking lights at two speeds. Subtle they are not.
We have one question: Since Irregular Choice is out of the UK, does that make her a British Shorthair? We’ll be here all week, folks.
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
