Fight Club Faggots

Chuck Palahniuk

“We’ve all been raised on television to believe that one day we’d all be millionaires, and movie gods, and rock stars. But we won’t. And we’re slowly learning that fact. And we’re very, very pissed off.”
Chuck Palahniuk (Fight Club)

You KNEW It Was Coming –
So Fap & Get It Over With

It’s a shame Today’s Brandons don’t actually read their Bible: Fight Club.  While boycrushing on Brad Pitt’s obliques and greasy cool allure, they miss the venomous nihilism coursing through the actual book.

More a manual on dissatisfied and displaced revolutionaries seeking explanation for the malevolent forces driving them to palpable, anger-fueled insanities, Fight Club is a convincing diary of a young man’s revelation… as written by a (now) 50-year-old – and surprisingly embraced by Tweens.

We’re a generation of men raised by women. I’m wondering if another woman is really the answer we need.”

Most (if not all) of CP’s observational instructions I learned before Middle School from my Dad, his friends, cousins, and associated men in my friends’ families.  Don’t get me wrong, Brad is indeed blessed, but I fantasized instead about filling up a toilet full of condoms courtesy of Helena Bonham-Carter’s rousing …

…participation ever since I saw her pouty face in A Room With A View. A Room With A Toilet?

For a “generation of men raised by women,” Palahniuk’s Durden miraculously surpassed that former quotable childhood God of Mythical WisdomYoda. Nothing spells mysticism like George Lucas‘ ancient green puppet with wispy ear-hairs. Kermit’s grandpa is the deeply-deep-deepie philosophical side of George, who gets his pussy the old-fashioned way: by being the rumored #1 high-priced callgirl customer in history.  Cowgirl, want I – outcall with blond twins – black garters hmmn?

Cunt Club

No. Tyler is way moar hellakwl than even the St. Peter & St. Paul Twin Cites of Cool – Morpheus & Neo.  Besides, now you’re saved from being painted into a corner and forced to identify and internalize a dorky Keanu and his grody Hawaiian Sunglasses Sophistry; now you can haz Brad.  But…just think if Brad also played Neo. The mind boggles: There’d be a disturbance in The Force, sense I, sensei.

The movie had the good fortune of extended life granted by the simultaneous emergence of Pick-Up/PUA and Mystery Method. Early disciples glommed-on to the Insta-Cool Boost a dose of Tyler Durden (not that douche Canuck pua) gave ya when doing frightening cold approaches in The Club with The Cube.  Faggy Br0-Group Hugs in pua forums predictably followed because approaches are often truly intimidating.  Even for the phony brave.  Today’s Brandons™ found squishy, wubby kumfurt commiserating among Today’s Justins™.

Check it out in Goodreads – and if you want frightening IRL 4realz – ponder some of the deeper, more disturbing quotes that (somehow) never quite seem to make it to Brandon’s FaceBook page:

You have a class of young strong men and women, and they want to give their lives to something. Advertising has these people chasing cars and clothes they don’t need. Generations have been working in jobs they hate, just so they can buy what they don’t really need.

We have to show these men and women freedom by enslaving them, and show their courage by frightening them.

That Chucky, what a meany. Inspiring Bois since 1999 – but still, to no effect.  Perhaps Today’s Brandons can finally pull it off – achieve success – if they actually learn the concept and meaning of fright, instead of mere indignant anger.  I have scant hope.

  1. I believe that Fight Club has jumped the shark. That was made way back in 1999. Now you’d be lucky to get that job, be bored, and to spend time finding yourself. The message is still rather true, and it was meant primarily for white men.

    • Very true. Still, the importance lies in now 30-ish and above males who internalized the philosophy and distilled it into a few memorable quotes.

      50-year-olds internalized Yoda-isms in 1982 that were similarly picked-up by the boys of 2002.

  2. I hope you Yanks stop with the random ‘going postal’ bs and become target selective. A certain Norwegian fellow has lit your path.

    (Good point Ryu)

  3. I am regular reader, how are you everybody? This bloggings posted at this site is actually
    nice. [ed note: thanks, but i think you’re at teh wrong blog]

  4. A journalist claiming to be manly. OK.

  5. I’ve read many of Chuckie’s books. They all share the same theme. Like every author, he has his specialty.

    It’s hard to quantify how hard it is to fight back. Young soldiers and cops are often afraid, and they have such a huge advantage over irregulars – numbers, a big budget, free equipment, body armor, air support.

    Multiply the fear a rookie cop or soldier has by 100, and that’s what a criminal or revolutionary has to deal with. And, the revolutionary has to cover the backside.

    The advantage of our situation is that with time, there’s less to lose and more to gain. The equation shifts into our favor.

    • Hollywood, naturally, had to tone down the revolutionary aspect of the FC novel into a near-parody of its own illusion. The script re-writes with (or without) CP present must’ve been a laugh.
