Oyez! Oyez! Lords and ladies, ThinkGeek, ye olde Internet shoppe, is proud to announce the arrival of the Medieval Black Knight Hoodie. Made from cotton of the fields and an alchemical substance known only as “polyester,” this spectacular raiment transforms an ordinary subject into a knight of the realm, with all the privileges thereunto belonging (ed. note: that’d be none in America in this day and age). Protects the wearer from the dreaded Draft of Doom, the cause of many a plague upon our cities. Allows one to blend in at the Renaissance festival. Makes grocery shopping that much more of a combative experience (what? you don’t joust with your shopping carts?). Oops. We dropped our Elizabethan accent back there somewhere. Let’s start again.
Check out this cool Medieval Black Knight Hoodie. With the convenience of a full-zip hoodie, it makes its wearer look like he or she is decked out in plate armor. The spaulders and visor are removable with snaps. The “plates” are reinforced with interfacing. There are embroidered “etched” designs on the helm, spaulders, and lames. And because bathing and automated washing machines are two reasons why our nose is glad we live in the modern world, it’s machine washable. Just snap the visor and spaulders off before you toss it in. So arm yourself against the cold with the Medieval Black Knight Hoodie today.
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
