Hello...

After a good, long run, we have decided to close our forums in an effort to refocus attention to other sections of the site. Fortunately for you all, we're living in a time where discussion of a favorite topic now has a lot of homes. So we encourage you all to bring your ravenous love for discussion to Chuck's official Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and Instagram. And, as always, you can still post comments on all News updates. Thank you for your loyalty and passion over the years. These changes will happen June 1.

I just found this place by accident while discussing Fight Club and Choke with a friend of mine.

Fight Club was the first time I'd seen any of Chuck's work. I'd avoided the movie when it first came out because I really didn't care for Brad Pitt and the posters looked a bit absurd. I came across it by accident one night while on shift. It was the opening scene where the narrator is discussing insomnia. I had to say I was transfixed. Before I realized it, the movie was over and I'd lost a couple of hours. Fortunately nobody cares what you do on night shift. I walked away genuinely surprised to have enjoyed the movie and the thought: well, at least I'm not that crazy.

I've been an insomniac for 16 years now with no real desire to change. No signs of schizophrenia, yet. Though I've been called a 'functional sociopath' by more than one shrink.

Other than that I'm pretty much a living, breathing cliche: A writer (with writers block), living in the Netherlands, drunk on Absinthe. I'm already divorced, maybe I should take up smoking and complete the picture.
