Let's be friends, doesn't that sound fun?


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.

Hi! I'm Emily and I'm new. I made the account a bit ago but I'm just getting to using it now. I'll be 18 in June and I'm graduating high school this year. I have had many hair colors and I love cats.

My first Palahniuk novel was Fight Club, and unlike most people I did not see the movie first. I instantly fell in love with Chuck's writing style, being a writer myself, and at this point have read all but three of his books (Tell-All, Pygmy, and I'm in the middle of Snuff). My best friend owns all of them and fortunately lets me borrow them when I want.

Aside from Palahniuk, my other passions are filmmaking, music and makeup-design. I go to a high school that is infamous for it's fantastic film program, and I am a well-versed product of that. Over three years of film classes I have learned not only how to analyze films critically but have also learned how to produce my own- from pre-production to post-production.

Last year I worked on my first feature film with my high school (We're the only high school that makes features in the nation). It was a mockumentary on senior year called Prom-icuous. I starred as the awkward plain girl named Julia.

Over the summer I attended Northwestern University as a Film and Video Cherub through scholarships from my high school, and armed with even more knowledge I came pack for my senior year with an idea that packed a real punch. As a result, I was chosen to write this year's feature (I did have a cowriter, he rocks). The film is called Becoming Charlie, I finished writing it about a month ago. Now all we have to do it make it. That's the fun part.

I am a trained vocalist, I've been in honors choirs since I was in fourth grade. I am most comfortable in the soprano range but my range is extensive. I've recorded two cds with my high school choir- one of them a full performance of Orff's Carmina Burana.

If you want to talk about music, movies or Chuck Palahniuk- I am definitely your girl.
