Real Fight Club In Union Square, NY!?

Apologies, as this news is now old.  Though I didn't see too many people discussing it here on The Cult.  My buddy Josh sent it my way.

It seems there was a real live fight club going on, right in the center of Union Sqaure in NYC late May.

Dennis' Review Of 'Choke'

'Choke' directed by Clark Gregg.I saw Choke Monday night at the LA Film Festival.  This was the Los Angeles premiere of the movie, and Fox Searchlight Pictures graciously sent me two tickets so that my roommate and I could attend.  I'll admit right off the bat, this was a thing I was sort of worried about.  It's been almost nine years since our last Chuck Palahniuk movie adaptation.  Since Fight Club. During that time, everyone under the sun h

Brian K. Vaughan Interview

The Last Man
Garrett Faber
Brian K. Vaughan

Brian K Vaughan a superstar in the realm of comic books.  Although he's too cool to say that about himself, it's cool if I say it. He has won the Eisner, Harvey, and Shuster Awards for his critically acclaimed works Y: The Last Man (which is currently being developed into a movie with New Line Cinema) and Ex Machina (also being developed, at a much slower pace.) He's written such mainstream comics as Wolverine, Captain America, Green Lantern, Swamp Thing, and Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

In addition to these accomplishments, Brian also won the award for "2006 Best Comic's Writer" from Wizard Magazine. Most recently, he's broken out of the comic book writing medium and ventured into the realm of TV, writing for some show called Lost. Ever heard of it?

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.
