PreOrder The New Non-Fiction Anthology 'You Do Not Talk About Fight Club' Today!

You Do Not Talk About Fight Club: I Am Jack's Completely Unauthorized Essay CollectionFor many of you, the conception of this anthology slipped under the radar.  I don't think I was even sure it was happening until they asked me to contribute to it.  You Do Not Talk About Fight Club: I Am Jack's Completely Unauthorized Essay Collection (wow, that's a mouthfull), is an anthology of essays written about Fight Club, Chuck Palahniuk, and his other works.  It was edited by Read Mercer Schuchardt, a fellow attendee of the first Chuck Palahniuk conference held in Edinboro, PA.  (we made a documentary about the second one).  Similar to people like Jeff Sartain, upon first meeting Read, I was struck by what an academic he was.  I mean that in the best way.  Read was one of the first Palahniuk fans I met that wanted to seriously analyze Chuck's works, and push others to do the same.

SNUFF Video: Chuck Palahniuk Live In Ann Arbor, MI!

This is probably the best produced video recording of a Chuck Palahniuk live event I have ever seen online.  It's Chuck at the Borders Bookstore in Ann Arbor, MI on May 20th, in which he kicked off his tour for Snuff.  Borders Live at 01 produced the event, and unfortunately I can't embed the video here, but you can check out all 20 mins of it on their site:

http://www.bordersmedia.com/shows/live01/palahniuk.asp

The first third is basically the highlights of an interview that was conducted with Chuck before the live audience.  Then we get a fun phase of the night where Chuck tosses blow-up dolls into the crowd and has a contest to see who can inflate their's the fastest (all while getting the audience to chant, "Blow, blow, blow!!")  But the last part of the video is the best.  It's a hysterical seminar Chuck 'hosts' with the camera on what his favorite bookstore picks are, and the best way to shoplift them past the large, imposing security guard!

I had a stupid grin on my face during this entire video. 

Go watch it and then comment on it here!
