General Discussion


This is by far our most popular forum and one of the best places to get lost in endless non-Palahniuk debates. Come meet our regulars...

Hey everyone, I wanted to take a few minutes to let you know that we have a long-overdue site update coming in the next few days and since a lot of stuff is going to change I thought it best to let you know what to expect. So, here are some details.

When is it happening? How long will it take? Squirrel!
We're aiming to bring the site down for the update the weekend of the 18th, though we might be a few days behind that. I'll update this post when I am certain. The site will probably be down for 2-3 days but hit us up on Twitter or Facebook for updates. We're a small crew and some of the database stuff we need to run just takes a lot of time, sadly.

What is changing?
Basically everything. We're making a lot of changes. Primarily to streamline the site and get it back to it's more Chuck-centric roots. As a result, we're going to get rid of a bunch of unused or rarely used things.

    This exchange is for writing materials (pens, journals, etc.) Plus whatever else you feel like sending, though you aren't required to send anything extra. So far the participants are:


    Anyone else who wants to sign up please do so before 6pm (central time) Saturday. Deadline for shipping is Friday September 27th, which is two weeks from the sign up deadline.

    I hope to see more of you join in!

    How do you feel about them? Which do you like, which do you hate, or do you ignore the medium all together? I listen to podcasts primarily because I hate music. I mostly cycle Nerdist, The Brett Easton Ellis Podcast and a Canadian duo called Horroretc. I tried to get into WTF with Marc Maron but I find him abrasive. I guess most of NPR is available as a podcast now too, but I only listen to NPR on the radio when I dont have any service on my phone or for Wait Wait Dont Tell Me on the weekends.

    I recently wrote a letter to Chuck that began, "This will not be your average fan letter. I am not Joe’s liver. I am hardly Joe’s excited hand reaching for an autograph. I am Joe’s dysfunctioning basal ganglia, which heartlessly controls his thoughts and emotions, and eventually his behaviors. I am Joe’s smirk in the face of a system that fails me time and again. I am Joe’s bleeding heart." Is that too hardcore and emotional for a fan letter? I go on to explain to him all of the problems in my life and how his advice can fix them. Is this weird?

    What are things people do that drive you mad? What punishment do you feel is necessary for such a transgression?

    The guy I'm working with chews with his mouth open. It's the most disgusting sound. It makes me want to take a cordless drill and screw his mouth shut. My mom used to yell at me when I did that as a child. At the time I was like, "Whaaaaaat?" But now I know, mom. Now I feel your rage.

    I was thinking the other day about writing a novelization for something like Plan 9 From Outer Space or any terrible kind of movie.
    Do you think it'd be possible to do something like that and have it turn out to be a really good book, or even, dare I dream, great literature?
    Kind of like the reverse of all the belly-aching those nerds do every time there's a new I Am Legend movie comes out?
