I love the movie Fight Club. I’m sure you think I’m a total tool given that the movie posits all of these anti-corporate statements and is gleefully nihilist but remained a media product of the Hollywood system. I still love it. I had it on my laptop while I was working on my desktop last night. I do that with movies – just let them play while I’m working – instead of playing music – they start to seep into you more. Like when I watched Aliens this weekend – I always notice something new about that movie – and how expertly it is plotted and edited. This time I noticed why Ripley has Bishop fly them back into the nest under the reactors – that’s where they had take Newt in the service tunnel. I’d never noticed that before. Or that Burke’s business card has the same logo as the terraformer company. Anyway – this time with Fight Club I had one quote stick with me as I slept:
This is your life. And it’s ending one minute at a time.
Who would you be if you were Tyler Derden?
