…Choke looks good?

Choke

Batman might be dominating the movie news right now, and though I’m excited to see it, I think I’m looking forward to Choke even more than the man in black.

Chuck Palahniuk is by far my favorite author, and his book to movie transition has proven itself in the past (Fight Club, anyone?) so I can’t imagine Choke is going to be any different.

Lest I ruin the story, I don’t want to dive too deep into the plot line (though I will say that the book was fantastic), but just make sure you keep this one on your radar, because you don’t want to miss a movie like this.

…Snuff is bringing Cassie Wright to life?

I’ve talked about Chuck Palahniuk’s Snuff before, but now that his some of the book’s marketing is starting to see the light of day, I thought it was worth a revisit.

If you remember, Snuff is about Cassie Wright, a porn priestess who intends to cap her legendary career by breaking the world record for serial fornication.

To give Cassie’s character a little more believability, two videos were created to promote Cassie’s previous work:

The Wizard of Ass – Dorothy is Not a Virgin Anymore:

and Chitty Chitty Bang Bang Bang:

Don’t you wish every book’s advertising was this…interesting?

…It’s Things Thursday: Chuck Palahniuk’s Snuff?

Chuck Palahniuk’s SnuffChuck Palahniuk is definitely my favorite author, so when I read the summary of his upcoming book, Snuff, I immediately hit the pre-order button:

    Cassie Wright, porn priestess, intends to cap her legendary career by breaking the world record for serial fornication. On camera. With six hundred men. SNUFF unfolds from the perspectives of Mr. 72, Mr. 137, and Mr. 600, who await their turn on camera in a very crowded green room. This wild, lethally funny, and thoroughly researched novel brings the huge yet underacknowledged presence of pornography in contemporary life into the realm of literary fiction at last. Who else but Chuck Palahniuk would dare do such a thing? Who else could do it so well, so unflinchingly, and with such an incendiary (you might say) climax?

Sounds like another bestseller to me.
