YOUR OWN EGG-SPRESSIONIST EXHIBIT
Gudetama, everyone’s favorite lazy egg, is featured in their own art exhibit on this ThinkGeek-exclusive Museum of Gudetama Mini Leather Backpack. Posing in replicas of famous paintings – such as The Scream, The Mona Lisa, The Milkmaid, The Birth of Venus, and even a painting of “Elvis” on black velvet – they are immortalized on the striking red wall of this cracking good gallery. The paintings are well lit and are cordoned off from anyone hungry getting too close.
The backpack’s roomy striped interior makes finding your items easy, even when you’re feeling as unmotivated as Gudetama. This lazy egg’s defeatist attitude need not be contagious, however. You are unlikely to be eaten during the course of your day. Right?
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
