Our brand new 10th Anniversary Fight Club Tshirts are now shipping! Furthermore, as of today, Mirka has already shipped out all the pre-ordered shirts. So if you had already placed your order, you should be getting your shirt(s) within a few days. If you haven't yet placed your order for one of these amazing shirts...
But wait, it gets better! Kevin Tong, the amazing designer of the Tshirt, has a co-promotion with us whereby he's offering limited edition posters of his 10th Anniversary 'Fight Club' shirt design.
The poster is hand screen printed, four colors, on 18 x 24 inch Cornflower Blue 100 lb Cover Paper in a limited edition of 200. It costs $30. For more details as well as pictures of the poster, click here!
Unfortunately, the t-shirt and the poster must be ordered separately as they ship from different locations. read more »
For years we've been offering Tshirts on this website for all of Chuck Palahniuk's books. You have demanded them and we have delivered. But strangely, the one shirt we never made was a Fight Club shirt.
Well, that all changes today. In honor of the 10 year anniversary of the movie Fight Club, as well as the 10 year anniversary of ChuckPalahniuk.net (yes, it's been that long!), we are finally offering you the shirts you've been wanting for years! But this time we took things up a notch. We wanted this shirt to look different than the rest. We wanted it to not just feel like a 'Fight Club' movie shirt, but also channel the book. So we wanted a design that was balanced. Something hot. Something you'd wear out and not feel like too much of a fanboy. ;)
This is becoming more and more a part of our pop culture. So I tend to not always report about it. But then again, every now and then, it's just fun to mention:
I was watching CBS tonight and there were Fight Club references in both CSI and Criminal Minds. In CSI a joke was made referencing the first rule of Fight Club. Three girls are in a diet club and a joke is made saying "the first rule of diet club is you don't talk about diet club". I thought this was pretty funny. In Criminal Minds there was a fight club that the killer belonged to. The FBI goes to this fight club while a fight is going on and breaks it up and interviews one member. This member goes on to say that at Fight Club there are no names only nick names. I thought it was really cool that 2 separates shows both had Fight Club references in them on the same night of television..Feel free to pass this info on
Props to Andy Ponti for the scoop. read more »
This may be old news for some of you, but SuicideGirls.com has recently posted a photo tribute to Fight Club. I think this has something to do with the site's anniversary or something. Be careful though. The following link is NSFW. You'll see lots of sweaty, tattooed breasts. So many in fact, that I even had a hard time finding an image I could crop (above) for this news post.
Now, onto the photo tribute... and the... ahem... breasts:
If the link doesn't work, it may be because you need a membership to the site. read more »
Wow. This is just awesome. It seems a group of activists in the Ukraine calling themselves the UA Resistance, invoked the spirit of Tyler Durden by lighting up the side of an apartment complex in the form of a giant smiley face. The act was done in a non-violent effort to make a statement about the corruption causing high prices on apartment flats in the country.
Here's the email I received from the UA Resistance:
We have a present for Chuck on his Birthday:-) Ukrainian TV made a short interview about it, so we think, that it will be funny and interesting to send it to Chuck's fanclub. Where we can send photo of action?) P.S. Sorry for bad grammar)) read more »
Something I have not done nearly enough promotion on, is the awesome new Fight Club anthology that just came out. I say it's awesome for many reasons (one of them being, that yours truly has an essay in it), but primarily because, Read Mercer Schuchardt, the guy who edited it, is someone I've known for a long time now. And he has one of the most unique and smart approaches to "Fight Club" that I have ever read.
"You Do Not Talk About Fight Club: I Am Jack's Completely Unauthorized Essay Collection" is a collection of essays on Chuck Palahniuk, the novel for 'Fight Club', and of course, the movie. It came out September 1st, and you should all order it here from Amazon. Hell, it's only $10!
To convince you all that this book is worth your hard earned money, I have partnered up with Jeff Mues at BenBella Books, the publishers, for a very exciting promotion. Basically, every month, for at least the next three months, we are going to feature a essay from the book for free download on this site. Starting today!
Apologies, as this news is now old. Though I didn't see too many people discussing it here on The Cult. My buddy Josh sent it my way.
It seems there was a real live fight club going on, right in the center of Union Sqaure in NYC late May.
The cops ended up stopping it, but still... this is wild.
