40 MINUTES

Did you hear “Mars Time” from AirSpace, the podcast from the Smithsonian’s National Air and Space Museum, down the street from ThinkGeek World Domination HQ? If you missed it, it was about how trying to keep your body synced to a Mars day, 40 minutes longer than an Earth’s Day, wreaks havoc on your naturally circadian body. Apparently beanbag chairs and ice cream makes it better. That’s pretty much true for anything, honestly.

This watch celebrates the glory that is the red planet, but it’s a standard Earth watch so as not to mess with your head. The Mars Orbit watch has 3-hand movement, with Phobos as the minute hand, Deimos as the hour indicator, and a little rover as the second hand. (At least we think that’s how they line up based on which one orbits closer to the planet. The inside one is the minute hand, which should be obvious after a a few minutes.) Does not include life and / or any Earth-shattering kabooms.

Kitchen Nightmares!

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

Harry Potter Hand-Controlled Candle

The image of all those floating candles in the Great Hall at Hogwarts is a memorable one. We like the books, too, but we’re very glad the movies exist if just to burn that breathtaking picture into our minds.
