One of my favorite things about running this website, is realizing, on a continuing basis, just how many people love the writing of Chuck Palahniuk. This stretches across the board from regular everyday readers, college professors, celebrities and yes, even world renown fetish models.
Masuimi Max has been a staple in the fetish photography world for several years now. She's the punk rock Dita Von Teese. The real 'Suicide Girl'. She's done stage shows, been on dozens of magazine covers, and has even had small parts in David Lynch movies. How cool is this chick!?
Well, like most cool people, she's also a fan of Chuck Palahniuk. So when I asked if she wouldn't mind us sending her one of our new 10th Anniversary 'Fight Club' shirts, she not only gobbled up the opportunity, but also agreed to model the shirt for her website IAmTrouble.com. But Masuimi went furtherand included the following blog on her site, forum, MySpace, Facebook and Twitter:
With Christmas exactly two weeks away, now is the best time to get your orders in for one of our new Fight Club Tshirts. These shirts were designed by LA designer Kevin Tong and are completely original and unique. They come in cornflower blue and tan for Men, and just cornflower blue (for now) for Women. They are available in all sizes.
Furthermore, we are now offering great deals in our Store on other items that we have bundled together. So if you purchase the shirts with other items, such as the Chuck Palahniuk Documentary DVD or even a 1 yr Premium Membership to our site (which includes full access to our Writers' Workshop and all of Chuck's original writing essays), you will get a big discont on your order!
Does this sound familiar? Luckily, Tyler Durden never spent any time in Peru, so we know he had nothing to do with this. All kidding aside though, this is a ghastly story. I'll let the Huffington Post take over from here:
LIMA, Peru — A gang in the remote Peruvian jungle has been killing people for their fat, police charged Thursday, draining it from their corpses and offering it on the black market for use in cosmetics. Medical experts expressed skepticism that a major market for fat might exist.
Three suspects have confessed to killing five people for their fat, said Col. Jorge Mejia, chief of Peru's anti-kidnapping police. He said the suspects, two of whom were arrested carrying bottles of liquid fat, told police it was worth $60,000 a gallon ($15,000 a liter).
Mejia said the suspects told police the fat was sold to intermediaries in Lima, the Peruvian capital. While police suspect the fat was sold to cosmetic companies in Europe, he could not confirm any sales.
Chris Gore has become our new best friend. You may remember that a couple weeks back he decided to review our Chuck Palahniuk documentary DVD "Postcards From The Future", during his 'DVDuesday' segment on G4's 'Attack of the Show.
After we posted about this, Chris then actually joined The Cult and left a comment on the news post. How awesome is this guy? To repay him for the plug, Mirka and I decided to send the dude a care package of ChuckPalahniuk.net goodies. And since Chris had mentioned that Survivor was his favorite Chuck Palahniuk book, we dropped one of our awesome Survivor Tshirts in with the package.
Well, if you watch the video below, where Chris reviews the new Fight Club Blu-ray DVD set, you'll see that he graciously decided to wear the shirt on live TV!
Much love, Chris. That's an awesome site to see. Watch the video below the break! And order yourself one of our snappy Survivor Tshirts here!
