Update: The item was auctioned and won for $4,351.00! Congrats to the new owner of the table and for the good thing they did to support for these animals.
I just got an e-mail from Chuck asking that I let everyone know that The Pixie Project animal shelter, in Portland OR, is auctioning the actual Yin-Yang coffee table from Fight Club. This is one of three tables that were used in the film. The other two were (obviously) destroyed. It was given to Chuck as a funny gift by David Fincher at the close of the film.
Bid on the table here: http://www.ebay.com/itm/290687911585 - Auction Ended
All proceeds go to funding The Pixie Project, and help rescue dogs.
This table has been in Chuck's office for the past 12 years and he's now ready to part with it for a worthy cause. Furthermore, if you live anywhere near the Portland area, there's a chance he'll come and help you set it up.

You gotta love Eli Roth. Writer, director, producer, actor, horror fan (like me!) and... inspired Halloween costume afficianado! I still remember his Ichi The Killer costume he wore at the Toronto Film Festival.
This year, Eli took the popular Tyler Durden costume idea to new levels with not one, but TWO variations!
I gotta say, I've always liked Eli Roth. And now I like him even more.
How the hell have none of you tried something like this before? For as long as it became 'a thing,' I've been a fan of the fake Criterion covers fans have designed. Not only are many of them hysterical (one of my favorites being Days of Thunder), but some of the artwork is damn good and clearly tops the shitty, uninspired DVD covers studios sleepwalk through. (example: Scott Pilgrim vs. Scott Pilgrim). These fans could be working for Criterion with these skills.
But alas, I've never seen a fake Criterion for Fight Club. Until now...
This was designed by S. L. Jackson. Here's what he had to say about the design: read more »
Someone ask me why I keep posting these? I guess with this latest, I just respect the fact that these guys went out and did something. Plus, they look like they had fun making this. And hell, the one dude even shaved his head.
Check out 'Cuddle Club,' a shot for shot remake (albeit, with some actual stolen shots) of the Fight Club trailer.

Somehow I missed this one. I guess I shouldn't beat myself up since Fight Club continues to become one of the most spoofed and homaged films of the past 15 years. This spoof comes by way of The Girls on Film. Here's their bio from their YouTube channel:
The Girls on Film is the earth-shattering, mind-blowing trio of professional actors Ashleigh Harrington, Cat McCormick and Jeff Hammond.
We're recreating awesome movie scenes between men, with women playing their parts. Its our innovative way of sharing our passion for storytelling and injecting our own personal cocktail of fun and friskiness throughout the galaxy.
We are in the process of remaking all of our favourite guy-on-guy movie scenes for your viewing pleasure. Please share with us your favourite male scenes so our fabulous team can make them too.

The original blogger said it perfectly: "Man, I wish my high school had been this cool." Really though, I grew up in an era where the most subversive book taught in school was The Catcher in the Rye. Now don't get me wrong, I love that book. But nowadays, we get at least an email a month from a college professor, high school teacher or student who informs us that Fight Club has joined their curriculum.
This school seems to have taken that to the next level. Check out those hallway quote from Tyler Durden!

Here's a cool little gem from our Twitter feed via 'ThatDrunkViking.' It's a helpful Tyler Durden, giving sage advice on dating and relationships.
Some of my favorites:
CALL SEX LINE. ASK THE GIRL HOW HER DAY WAS, DON'T HANG UP.
HIT ON MARRIED WOMEN IN FRONT OF THEIR HUSBANDS. YOUR BRUISES REKINDLED A DEAD ROMANCE.
START A FIGHT WITH LONELIEST GUY IN BAR. INTENTIONALLY LOSE SO HE GETS LAID.
Hot damn, is this well done. Check out a great mash-up of Fight Club as cut to Florence + The Machine's song "Kiss with a Fist.' It was edited by Jeff Yorkes and is titled 'Fist Club.'
Watch the video on Vimeo here.
And be sure to check out all of Jeff's CINEMASHUP's at his Vimeo page. I've basically become addicted to them since yesterday.
Check out this impressive fan-made video that comprises the entirety of Fight Club into 60 seconds. The video was made by Alison Parker, who has submitted it to a contest that challenges the entrants to take any popular movie and condense it all down into 60 seconds. I personally love this stuff, and have seen cool videos like this on YouTube before, but I think Alison has outdone herself here.

Come the end of a year (and the start of a new one) it seems almost impossible to avoid 'Top 10' fever. This is a fever that spreads to movie and gossip sites and can include everything from 'The Top 10 Worst Movies of 2010' to 'The Best YouTube Parodies'. Don't lie. We all love these lists. It's why websites keep doing them. And it's why I finally broke down this year and decided it was high time we do one of these for The Cult.
Our list will be a Top 5. And I'm going to break it up into two categories. read more »
This one is new for me. Yet another trailer mash-up of movies. This one between Toy Story and Fight Club. Pretty good.
Props to Kasey Carpenter for letting us know about it.
Yesterday I had a chance to go see David Fincher's new film The Social Network. And yes, I loved it. Not at first. But about a few hours later, I found I couldn't shake the film. I kept replaying the scenes over and over in my head. And now, I'm ready to see it again already. But this isn't a review of that fine film, no. Rather, it's just one more example of how Fight Club lives on for all of us, and perhaps most notably... in its director's heart.
You might remember a scene where Mark Zuckerberg (played brilliantly by Jesse Eisenberg) is half-assedly doing some school work by posting pieces of art under a fake Facebook account and asking fellow students to comment on them, so he can then use their feedback in his assignment. Well, if you look closely at the fake account he's registered, you'll realize that it's registered to none other then.... Tyler Durden!
I didn't catch this myself. For that, I have to credit SlashFilm as the source. But I'll be sure to watch this scene more closely when I see the film again. For now, just thought you all should know... Project Mayhem lives on.
Check out this awesome grindhouse-style poster for Fight Club. This was designed by Liam Carl. You can check out more of Liam's work at his official site: http://liamcarldesign.com/
In our 11 years online, fans of sent us a ton of artwork, but since the 'grindhouse' craze is still relatively new, I think this is actually the first time anyone has ever taken one of Chuck's novel/movies and whipped something like this up... and we love it, and want more!
So if you want to create your own 'grindhouse' version of one of Chuck's books or movies, send it as an email here, and be sure to include it as a .jpg or gif, along with your name and how you'd like to be credited. The best ones will be included in our Gallery.

Well, you requested it and we listened. Our popular Fight Club Tshirts, designed by Kevin Tong, are now available in PINK. In our original run we had the Mens available in Cornflower Blue and Tan, but the Women's were just available in the Cornflower Blue. And we got so many emails requesting a pink shirt, that we finally just put in an order for them.
*The shirts are only available in Pink for the ladies. Sorry, guys. :)
To help us model this new shirt, badass glamour and fetish model Masuimi Max returns to The Cult with a stunning new gallery. You may remember that Masuimi also modeled the shirt in blue for us. Well, this time she went and did an entire photoshoot with the shirt, with her husband and photographer, Morat, behind the lens.
You can also see some pics of our own models (photographed by me... thank you very much!) below as well.
If you have any questions about the shirts, please contact us at tshirts @ chuckpalahniuk.net.
'Fight Club' fan art is nothing new around here. In fact, our massive collection of fan-made material is one of the things that first made this site tick. So if you ever have something in general that you'd like to submit, just shoot an email over to submissions @ chuckpalahniuk.net.
