Our friends over at JoBlo.com just posted a helluva story. CHOKE is coming to DVD on February 17th, 2009, and here are all the details:
Big props to Mike Klimek for the heads up on this.
If any of you are looking for a great gift for a friend or loved one this holiday season, we have it. Tshirts and DVDs are now on sale!.
First, we have our 'Choke' and 'Survivor' Tshirts, which (along with the rest of our inventory) are all marked down to $16 each. We also now offer Air Mail shipping, which is not as fast, but cheap. For those of you that want to guarantee shipment before Christmas, select Priority.
Welcome to December. I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving. I personally drank too much the night before, and was so hung-over, I couldn't taste anything the next day. So alas, all that great taste was robbed from me.. Today, we continue with, what is easily, one of the best features from Chuck we have ever included on this site.
Thomas Jane is an actor who has taken on some iconic roles. He played the lead in THE PUNISHER. Mickey Mantle in 61*. And he's also starred in two films based on the work of Stephen King, most recently THE MIST. He's currently in post-production on his directorial debut, THE DARK COUNTRY. Thomas Jane is also no stranger to the comic book medium or its fans, thanks in large part to his work with fan favorite artist Timothy Bradstreet.
This is a piece of news that can only exist with the awesome fans of Chuck Palahniuk. It seems someone has gone and set up a site where Chuck fans can take pictures of and swap their handmade Palahniuk items. Similar to how Chuck himself hand-makes a lot of items he sends out in his fan mail packages, idea organizer, Anna Knight, has seized inspiration from that and given it a home. From Anna:
I recently organized a Chuck Palahniuk Swap on a craft website, Craftster.org, and I thought I'd send a link to the gallery of it. The guidelines were that everyone sent 4 handmade items and some gag gifts like Chuck sends to his fans.
The gallery is here:

The original thread:
UPDATE: This date has now passed. As always though, St. Helen's is accepting orders for Chuck's next stop in. At this time though, we do not know when that will be.
Chuck Palahniuk's next book will be "Pygmy". It's not due in stores until May 5, 2009. But the official description just went up on Amazon last week.
Take a drop of Joe R. Lansdale's blood. Then a slice from David J. Schow's scalp. Scrape some phlegm off Tarantino's tongue. Inject some of Robert Rodriguez's sperm. Pour in some Karo syrup. Mix it in a blender. Pour. These are just some of the ingredients of Stephen Romano's unique work.
Stephen Romano is a mutant. He's a military science experiment gone all bug-fuck bad. He's a dangerous DIY author/artist/hyphenate. Residing in Austin, Texas, Stephen Romano is best known as the screenwriter who, along with the infamous Don Coscarelli (Phantasm), brought to life Joe R. Lansdale's "Incident On and Off A Mountain Road" for the pilot episode of Showtime's Masters of Horror series. Stephen also released THE RIOT ACT, a collection of his balls-to-the-wall short stories, in which Joe R. Lansdale wrote, "This may be the best new short story collection I've read in years. Stephen Romano isn't fucking around."
If the buzz surrounding his new book, SHOCK FESTIVAL, is any indication, Stephen Romano's work will not only turn heads, it's going to make heads roll, because no, he isn't fucking around. FANGORIA called it "One of the greatest homages to B-cinema ever undertaken." FILM THREAT described it as "A stone groove and as badass a tome as you're likely to come across this year or next."
Here Stephen Romano talks with Joshua Jabcuga about SHOCK FESTIVAL, his love of movies, and working as a professional screenwriter.
This news is about a month old now, but it's worth mentioning. Chuck Palahniuk did a cool q&a with The Hollywood Reporter during the 'Choke' release.
Take special note of the last question, where Chuck is asked about a possible collaboration with DC Comics.
