Ted Cruz's hypocritical head on a platter?
Maybe we need to clean our room, first?
Oh damn! I better write faster or I’ll never be censored!
LOL. Chinese Trainspotting. My goodness. All the junkies get hauled off to prison camps via train and then promptly executed with a handy pistol. I saw a photo journal of how the Taliban treats their opium addicts. I was surprised they allowed their addicts to live quite frankly. I'm still smiling over all of the wonderful prizes and darling gifts Mr. Palahniuk! Thank you Tom Williams! https://www.vice.com/en/article/pkb7yb/astonishing-photos-show-heroin-users-forced-into-harsh-rehab-by-taliban
‘Chinese Psycho’—it’s just a narrative about a guy going around showing people uncensored fiction and news.

He is the type to pick up or toss out things based on what is convenient for his latest stage performance rather than following any sort of ethical path or consistency in regards to a set of values. What is scary are folks who don't see the pile up of inconsistencies and contradictions quite a few in positions of power utilize in their tool bag on the path to insatiable money and power.
I wonder how the Chinese state media would interpret Harold and Maude.
Also… You have probably seen this, but for others who might not have — here is the hand painted Fight Club poster from Ghana.
Fingers crossed that a new copy of Fight Club will be issued to every Texas inmate at intake along with their linens and clothes
Texas should make your books mandatory reading. They adore breaking rules and rebellion. I miss it there.
I bet sales are decent in Texas. A good banning is like a flashing sales beacon to people! We once had a school assembly where the teacher spoke to us about what an appalling influence on us the band Oasis were, how their behaviour was shocking, how we should never view people like that as role models etc. Anyone that wasn't already into them rushed out and bought their records immediately. The best marketing team in the world couldn't have made them seem any more appealing!
You ever read Backroads by Tawni Odell? I just saw the movie on Amazon Prime. It's probably my second favorite book after Fight Club. I've read it probably 6 times........ anyhow......my birthday falls on Thursday! Last Thursday in February. I'll be 49. You gonna be at Study Hall? I'll book a flight if you are def gone be there!!!!!!!
Depriving inmates of Chuck's books is definitely cruel and unusual punishment.
Chuck, I'll only do this once (promises, promises)... in case you didn't see it on the last thread, my second (you read my 4th) rejoinder was : Crouching Tyler, Hidden Durden.
Being banned by a prison system actually seems like a lofty goal! But fuck Ted Cruz.
I dunno, but Chinese Trainspotting feels like it would be a very stylish period piece where a French friend, a British friend and a Chinese friend do opium. Maybe fight about it. Twice. Maybe throw a small rebellion in there somewhere. I dunno, just spitballing.
I thought it was kindah cute how the lead fellah on TMZ was getting all twitterpated over having Chuck on the show! He was super-fanning!
I’m also somewhat suspicious about how many people have reaaaaally read your books. Hmmmm!
Great interview!! You really take moments like these and handle them with finesse— interviewing skills to learn from! I hope more folks come to Substack!! ♥️
