YOU’LL LOVE THESE SLIPPERS TO THE MOON AND BACK
You know, we hadn’t ever thought about it, but astronauts live out of their vehicles, don’t they? Their vehicles just happen to be worth billions of dollars and not so much listed in the Kelly Blue Book. What’s the current trade-in value on a shuttle anyhow? High mileage but kept in pristine condition.
If you’ve got some Extravehicular Activity planned, such as hanging out on the couch, we’d highly recommend these slippers, inspired by the boots of NASA’s astronauts. Much like NASA’s EVA suits, these reflect the heat of the sun and are easily visible against the blackness of space. These do not, however, have a water cooling system. You’ll have to get up and shuffle over to the thermostat for temperature control and to the fridge for drinks. Sorry.
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
