speaking of fight club.

China has given the classic film ‘Fight Club’ a new, censored ending - where the authorities win

this is pretty funny. the CCP are now censoring films which are anti-capitalist.

the people in fight club aren't the downwardly mobile blue-collar workers being crushed by neoliberalism and globalization, though.

they're corporate middle-class types who are bored precisely because they are living lives of plenty. the notable IKEA catalogue monologue, for instance. these are people importing (then) desirable goods from the world marketplace, not having their jobs exported because of the same. they are victims of too much consumerism not structural inequalities and deprivation.

if you're talking about the appeal of grunge, as a pretty geographically locatable thing in the PNW, then yes, fair enough.
Downwardly mobile blue-collar types "identified" with Fight Club because masculinity is "under threat" and a bunch of insurance towers were taken down.

the masculinity was under threat from a neutered corporate, affluent and liberal society though, no? not the working-classes’ experience.

it is odd that a bunch of people in the flyover states feel threatened because gays want to smoke weed in california and hold hands in public.

Preaching to the choir really, I've heard all the "middle aged white men are the bad guy" manufactured victimhood stuff and some of the "Lesbian teachers are pushing the gay agenda" from more dedicated conservatives. I watched Fight Club with conservative people who were cheering it on for "reclaiming the rite of red-blooded masculinity." What a hero figure! Don't think 99% of them could even name the author without a google check. I'd take Chuck P.

"The government can only push people so far!" *eagerly* "Better hope nobody breaks into my house, I'll be ready!" "Come and take them!"

SCOTUS judge Stephen Breyer. At least that is what I thought when I got the New York Times alert on my phone announcing his retirement. Heart was racing for a second.

Why is god killing all of the comedians?

Also Trevor Moore's cause of death was released.
On August 7, 2021, at the age of 41, Moore died after being involved in an accident near his residence resulting in blunt force head trauma.[1][36][37] TMZ reported that Moore fell from his upstairs balcony at his home and suffered fatal head trauma around 2:30 AM on August 7. Alcohol was later revealed to be a factor and no other drugs were in his system at the time according to toxicology reports.
Dude died like one of his skits


Also, Bob Full House died of head trauma. They should make comedians wear helmets.

The lizard people have offed another of their own Jean-Luc Brunel, seems like a piece of work who was able to run free for years and years in multiple countries with multiple accusations against him. Sad!

On Wednesday, Demi Moore announced on Instagram that her ex-husband Bruce Willis, the prolific action-movie star, had recently been diagnosed with aphasia — a disorder that affects the brain’s language center and a person’s ability to understand or express speech — and that he would be stepping away from acting.

“To Bruce’s amazing supporters, as a family we wanted to share that our beloved Bruce has been experiencing some health issues and has recently been diagnosed with aphasia, which is impacting his cognitive abilities,” Moore’s post reads. “As a result of this and with much consideration Bruce is stepping away from the career that has meant so much to him.”

Gilbert Gottried is flapping his gums in comedy heaven right now. Was it well-known that he had muscular dystrophy?

People are already blaming the country and the cause of death wasn't even announced.
