IT WAS YOU WHO WOULD BRING BALANCE TO THE FORCE, NOT LEAVE IT IN DARKNESS.
Lava doesn’t generally end well. Well, it ends well for the new seeds, that then have mineral-rich soil in which to thrive. And, you know, volcanos make land, which is good for us. But for mammals, lava is super hot which is not so hot. It kills or destroys anything in its path, displacing populations, and possibly setting bad guys who were good guys just a minute ago on fire. Er… um. Spoiler alert?
Celebrate the power of destruction with this Star Wars Death Star Bead Bracelet. The steel superweapon is suspended on a stretchy bracelet amongst 20something lava beads. The power to destroy; the power to rebuild. Fitting, isn’t it?
For our customers with nickel allergies: This is mostly rock, but the Death Star bead is made from 316L grade surgical stainless steel. That means the five main components are iron, chromium, nickel (10-14%), molybdenum, and manganese. This is implant-grade steel.
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
