RETURN TO WESTWORLD
Hosts don’t need blankets. As Dr. Ford lectures a tech in “The Stray” after finding one of the hosts’ private parts covered, “It doesn’t get cold, doesn’t feel ashamed… doesn’t feel a solitary thing that we haven’t told it to.” So blankets exist in Westworld purely for the guests. Well, everything in Westworld exists purely for the guests. Or does it….?
If you’re planning on having a watch party for HBO’s Westworld, you can be the perfect host by providing your guests with this Westworld Logo Blanket. It features a leather-look with an interesting, touchable texture on the front and a sheepskin-look on the reverse to help make all the humans in your life comfortable. And it has an overcast stitch along the edges that make it look handmade, but you know better.
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
