EVERYBODY’S FAVORITE ASTERISM
These days watches are a luxury item more than ever. With our phones always reminding us of what time it is and when we should leave for that next thing and how the traffic is going to be getting there, a watch says you can tell what time it is without your phone. And an analog watch? Now that’s just impressive.
This Stargazer’s Watch says you value the night sky of our Northern Hemisphere. The face features the Big Dipper and the Little Dipper, and it comes with two leather bands, blue and black. With a backlight function and phosphorous hour markers and hand decorations, it positively glows under the right lighting conditions. With this on your wrist no matter how much light pollution your area has, you can always see the stars.
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
