Another thing that I did this weekend was watch Fight Club again. I really love this movie, and I really enjoy reading Chuck Palahniuk. I've read most of his books and have attended a reading of Guts, one of his short stories, that he read at the Coolidge Corner theater a few years ago. Guts is a bit of a disturbing story, as most of his are; disturbing in that it is so real. He describes things in a way that you are forced to relate to, he describes things the way we think them, or the way certain parts of our brains think them, that maybe our conscious mind doesn't want to believe we do. Guts is such a well executed story that at every reading he has ever given of it, multiple people have passed out, multiple people at every reading. How crazy is that. He has actually stopped reading that story in public, because one person who fainted at a Barnes and Noble (or some other book store) actually hit their head on the way down and required medical attention. He just has a way of saying things, a way of stringing words together that stops you and makes you think.
