ARTOOLS FOR THE JOB
R2-D2 is basically the best multitool ever. So it comes as little surprise that he’d volunteer up his dome to be the feature of this retractable tape measure. This Star Wars R2-D2 Tape Measure is metal and features a locking mechanism, as well as measurements in increments of both inches and centimeters.
And you won’t find him when you’re walking the aisles of your local Home Depot, trying to figure out where the heck they put the tape measures. Since we created him, he’s a ThinkGeek exclusive.
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
