You heard Amy Cuddy’s TED Talk about power poses, right? Well, if you’re not one of the 44 million views the video’s racked up so far, you can watch it in a bit, k? (And yeah, there’s some controversy about it now, but we’re going to throw out there that we never feel worse after standing in the Wonder Woman pose. Unless somebody catches us. Moving on.)
Much like Return of the Jedi, power ties were an artifact of the 80s. This is today’s power piece – the power blazer. Be Rey in this jacket. Have a tough presentation to give? Channel her determination. Struggling with a project? Remember her ingenuity. Trying to create something from nothing? Think of her ability to turn junk into treasure. It has a belt that ties at the waist, reminiscent of Rey’s look. It comes with a Rebel starbird lapel pin, easily removed if you need to go undercover. Plus, this blazer has inside pockets, perfect for hiding the last piece of the map.
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
