Fight Club

  1. Proposed Title For Chuck Palahniuk’s Next Book: “There Isn’t Enough Entertainment For Men Club”

    And other bad, bad things.

    I feel safe calling Fight Club a "dude book." It can certainly be enjoyed by anyone but it was also clearly targeted at men. And that's perfectly fine. But when author Chuck Palahniuk took part in a Tumblr Q&A recently to promote his new book, he said a few things about what's out there "for the menz" which have us tilting our heads.

  4. Rejoice, Disillusioned White Dudes! Fight Club’s Getting a Graphic Novel Sequel

    I am Jack's innate sense of cynicism.

    If the Star Wars prequels taught us anything, it's that people love it when their favorite film universes get rebooted with annoying tiny kids in them, right? Of course they do! That's probably why Chuck Palahniuk recently revealed that he'll be returning to his 1996 novel Fight Club to tell the story of Jack and Marla's son -- but from the point of view of Tyler Durden. Yay?

  6. Pre-Victorian Silhouette Portraits of Pop Culture Characters

    The strong silhouette is a very important aspect of character design, not just in comics, animation, and film where I'm guessing you could identify most of your favorite characters simply by their profile, but also in videogames, where players need to be able to discern, at a glance, whether that approaching enemy is Horde or Alliance, Spy or Scout, Witch or Tank. We think that's why we're so fascinated with the pop-culture papercut portraits of Olly Moss, especially the ones of live action characters played by humans. These characters have considerably less character design in their making than their drawn and animated counterparts, and yet, as subtle as they are, they are still completely recognizable.

  8. Silicon Valley Fight Club

    If Tyler Durden was a software engineer instead of a projectionist (or, if Michael Bolton directed his rage towards humans, and not copiers) the Fight Club that we love to pretend to emulate would probably resemble this. According to the Gentlemen's Fighters, there are, surprisingly, no rules. Just two guidelines: "One, do not grapple your friend. And two, do not bring him to tears." Naturally, the geeks spend a fair bit of time whacking at each other with keyboards and dustbusters, and the mele-noobs wear sparing gear.

    “In Silicon Valley we have the highest concentration of aggressive people in the United States. And it's a place where all life has been reduced to working in a cubicle and then after work going out to have a Merlot at the Fromage bar. I'm kind of looking for something a little more primitive, a little more basic, something that appeals to the essential nature of a man."
    They'll be in for quite the fisticuffs once Star Wars Kid gets wind of this. (via The Next Web)

  10. The First Rule Of Ferris Club Is You Do Watch This Trailer

    For those of you who don't know, there was a theory developed in recent years that in Ferris Bueller's Day Off, Ferris is merely a figment of Cameron's imagination, designed to help him break out of his reserved shell and actually live a little. The obvious comparison here is to Fight Club, and so the theory has been nicknamed The Ferris Bueller Fight Club Theory. Now, it seems unlikely that this is was intended the case, though it holds up surprisingly well with the content of the film. That said, if the initial trailer for Bueller had looked more like this video, then the crackpot idea would be far more than just a theory. Presented with apologies to David Fincher and John Hughes, Ferris Club:
