You are not your job. You are not how much you have in the bank. You are not the contents of your wallet. You are not your khakis. You are not a beautiful and unique snowflake. What happens first is you can't sleep. What happens then is there's a gun in your mouth. And what happens next is you meet Tyler Durden. Let me tell you about Tyler. He had a plan. In Tyler we trusted. Tyler says the things you own, end up owning you. It's only after you've lost everything that you're free to do anything. Fight Club represents that kind of freedom. First rule of Fight Club: You do not talk about Fight Club. Second rule of Fight Club: You do not talk about Fight Club. Tyler says self-improvement is masturbation. Tyler says self-destruction might be the answer.
At the end of the movie Fight Club, The Narrator (Edward Norton) shoots himself in the head, getting rid of Tyler Durden (Brad Pitt) for good, as he watches all the bombs from Project Mayhem go off with Marla (Helena Bonham Carter). In the novel, The Narrator does kill off Tyler, but Project Mayhem actually doesn't succeed, since the bombs never went off, as Tyler is sent off to an insane asylum that he mistakes for heaven. The book ends with Tyler being informed by a number of "space monkeys" that Project Mayhem is still moving forward without him.
The book ending is, of course, much more bleak than the movie adaptation, but Chuck Palahniuk has stated in interviews that he actually prefers the movie ending over his own ending in the novel. The author even revealed in an interview that the movie adaptation made him "sort of embarrassed" of his own book, because David Fincher found ways to streamline the plot and make connections to parts of the story that he hadn't. Earlier this year, the author debuted a comic book sequel Fight Club 2, with new issues debuting every month.Read More

Author Chuck Palahniuk, whose debut novel Fight Club was turned into a hit movie adaptation starring Brad Pitt and Edward Norton, announced that he is working on a graphic novel sequel to the movie.
Here's a statement released by the author on his official website."About the graphic novel, it's true. Chelsea Cain has been introducing me to artists and creators from Marvel, DC and Dark Horse, and they're walking me through the process. It will likely be a series of books that update the story ten years after the seeming end of Tyler Durden. Nowadays, Tyler is telling the story, lurking inside Jack, and ready to launch a come-back. Jack is oblivious. Marla is bored. Their marriage has run aground on the rocky coastline of middle-aged suburban boredom. It's only when their little boy disappears, kidnapped by Tyler, that Jack is dragged back into the world of Mayhem.Read More
It would be awesome if they actually showed this hanging up in his office this season with Ron reading from it occasionally when the opportunity presents itself. Even if they don't, though, I'm just very excited one of my favorite comedies is finally back on the air starting next month.
This room will be awesome because, in case people become suicidal they can't visit Tron like people got after seeing Avatar, they can just take a quick jaunt over to Sweden. I doubt they will have lightcycles available to ride around Sweden, though...Read More
