THESE ARE THE BOARD SHORTS YOU’RE LOOKING FOR

For residents of the galaxy far, far away, whether or not you know how to swim depends on the type of planet you grew up on. Padmé, a native of the Earth-like Naboo, naturally spent her summers swimming about in local lakes. Anakin, spending his childhood on waterless Tatooine… not much of a swimmer, that one. And growing up around all that sand, he’s not really a “beach guy,” either. Sand: put it on the list of “Skywalker pet peeves.”

Whether you’re swimming the lakes of Naboo, lounging poolside at one of fashionable pools on Coruscant, or soaking up the rays of the twin suns on Tatooine (with double sunscreen on, of course), a pair of Star Wars Space Board Shorts suit any occasion. With a subtle design – a digital print of a watercolor depiction of Rebel and Imperial ships engaged in a dogfight – you won’t be broadcasting to the entire galaxy that you’re wearing Star Wars shorts. They are elegant shorts, for a more civilized swim time.

Kitchen Nightmares!

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

Batman Logo Watch

What, you think Batman doesn’t have a watch to keep track of time? Granted, a Batwatch might have a laser cutter or something cool attached to it, but Batman for sure has places to be. He needs a watch to know when to be at the bank that Two-Face is planning on robbing. Might be a little embarrassing if he showed up late to that party. And possibly even worse if Bruce Wayne kept some Gotham millionaire waiting.

ThinkGeek’s 19th Anniversary Tee

It isn’t always easy to be a geek. Trust us: we have firsthand knowledge from our entire 8th grade year. Loving something, truly loving it, and putting that out there for the world to see makes you vulnerable. And that’s hard. 

Lion King Scar Lounger

All the lessons we learned as a child from The Lion King still apply to our adult life today. First, always listen to your father. A classic. Second, there’s the ciiiiirrrrrcle of life. Applies today and every day. Third, we learned that nothing beats the comfort of a lounger when you’re basking on a hot savannah day. (You remember that one, right? No? Must have been in the director’s cut.)
