TURN ON THE LIGHT (SIDE)!
A long time ago in a movie theater far, far away…. the Star Wars saga began, leaving viewers forever changed. We discussed and obsessed over the characters, spaceships, and planets. But mostly we had to content ourselves with action figures and trading cards to keep our enthusiasm on target between movies. Now you can use the Force (of electricity) to light any room in your house, keeping the Dark Side at bay and Star Wars in your heart.
Modeled after the iconic movie poster, this ThinkGeek-exclusive lamp features Luke, Leia, C-3PO, and R2-D2 on the base, at the ready to defend the Light Side of the Force. Luke has his blue lightsaber raised, reflecting the Jedi Master that he will soon become. Leia, always a good shot, is ready with her blaster. Artoo is probably looking for a strange computer to trust. And Threepio, well, he will attempt to provide moral support. But he’ll assume that they are all doomed. He might even tell you the odds.
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
