Ukrainian 'Fight Club' Prank On Side Of Apartment Building

Ukrainian 'Fight Club' prank on side of apartment flat.

Wow. This is just awesome. It seems a group of activists in the Ukraine calling themselves the UA Resistance, invoked the spirit of Tyler Durden by lighting up the side of an apartment complex in the form of a giant smiley face. The act was done in a non-violent effort to make a statement about the corruption causing high prices on apartment flats in the country.

Happy Birthday, Chuck!

Let's all wish the big guy a Happy Birthday today.  Rather then say his age, I'll just tell ya that he was born in 1962 and let you do the math.  ;)

So, in keeping with Chuck's spirit; rather then make this thread all about him.... (after all, how much fun is it really seeing a bunch of people just type the words 'Happy Birthday'?) let's instead hear you describe the best birthday gift you ever received.

Mike Birbiglia

The Strange Observer
Becky Fritter
Mike Birbiglia Interview on

By nature of the beast and by his own admissions, Mike Birbiglia does not fill the mold of stereotypical class clown. Far from a gregarious powerhouse of wild humor, the manner in which the slightly reserved comic delivers a line is less focused on drawing a short unison laugh from the crowd; rather, he weaves the line into a string of strange and dreamy observations about the world that leave his audience not only rolling on the floor but highly engaged.

The Cult 2009 Launches!!!

Chuck 2009 Launches!

Okay, I think my staff and I all have "eyes-bugging-out-of-our-skulls" syndrome. It's a rare condition. It afflicts those who have been working around the clock to launch a massive new version of an expansive author website.

I won't spend too long on a history lesson because you're all probably itching to explore the new site. What I will do though, is thank you all for your patience. Believe it or not, this site really is over a year in the making. Many of the features and options you are now being presented with, we fought tooth and nail to get into our 2008 version. But a series of bad circumstances just led us to a wall. And rather then get to build upon that version of the site, it soon became all about weathering the storm and steering you all to safety.

Today, that storm has cleared. So without further ado, here are your new features:

New Writer's Workshop

  • Submit, read and review stories with greater ease
  • Earn points for helpful reviews and comments
  • Qualify to have your work read and reviewed by Chuck Palahniuk
  • Qualify for the potential to be included in an Anthology Chuck will be publishing of the best stories in 2010
  • New Writer's Desk lets you monitor new activity in the Workshop

New Forums

  • We have a new version of the Drupal forum with a cleaner, fresher look and layout
  • Mark All Forums Read actually works now
  • There is now a 'Jump to Button,' at the top of all threads
  • When there is a new Reply, if you click it from the forum listing, it will take you right to that post in the thread
  • In Topic View, you can now see a "pager" navigation for threads that are more than 1 page.  Example:  Page 1, 2, 3...
  • In the main Forum index, "Last Post by [username]" is now a link that jumps right to it
  • It no longer shows you the first post of a thread when you go to Page 2, Page 3, etc.
  • There are now more navigation options on the bottom of long threads
  • Not to mention, a new Community Dashboard, which serves as a hub for all forum and community activity

Additional Features

  • Awesome new user profiles with dynamic layout
  • New convenient User Box with avatar view
  • New sidebar activity boxes
  • Out with the old search, in with a new custom Google search engine
  • Updated Blog layout and Group features
  • Our Book Recommendations page returns
  • New sub-forums for Pygmy and Movies In Development
  • All new Book and Movie pages
  • A new Haunted movie page

Okay, digest that all in while you explore the site. 2009 is going to kick ass!

Chuck's Plans For The 2009 Workshop

Chuck Palahniuk wants to publish your writing in 2009!

Greetings, all!  2009 is officially underway, so I wanted to take a little more time to hone down and elaborate on Chuck's wonderful post from January 2nd.  There's a lot to digest there, and while Chuck got to the meat and potatoes of it, he didn't quite explain all the other amazing things that were featured on the dish.
