Fight Club - Movie
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.

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.'
