Who would be your ideal stars of the Fight Club musical? Any potential song titles?

Asked by: ablackwelltp

chuckpalahniuk:

Celine Deon would play Tyler.  Nathan Lane would be Jack.  Lindsey Lohan would be Marla.  Tickets would sell out years in advance, and it would run for decades.   The break-out single would be “I’m Punching You Because I Love You,” and it would be staged by Andrew Lloyd Webber using sets and costumes leftover from ‘Cats.” 

That’s the dream.

Reminder for all y’all going to school in September:

If you ask an English Major to read over your essay and they give you this look

Don’t take it personally.

English majors write. We write a LOT. And we are damn good at it, so we understand if we’re the ones you go to for help.

But keep these in mind:

- We can have as little as five and as much as 15 writing assignments every term (or even more if we are in honours or taking more than five courses at a time)

- We have to read perhaps 25 books (approx 5 books per course) on top of that.

- Those readings can include such masochistic texts as Shakespeare, Atwood, Soyinka, Derrida, Plato, Woolf, and much MUCH more.

- You are not the first person to approach us, nor will you be the last.

- No one can help get a good grade more than your course instructor.

If you finish reading this and you still want our help, please be considerate and ask us politely. Don’t force us, or else we will purposely edit it until it is worse than before. That is a promise.

Also, it never hurts to show some gratitude in the form of coffee and cookies. If you do this, we might help you again in the future.

Happy Writing

Important addition: Your college, in all likelihood, has a writing center! Use it! The students working there are paid for their time whether or not students choose to use the writing center, and on most days, the students who work their would prefer that that time actually be spent tutoring students.

I have no problem fielding brief writing and citation questions for my friends, but if they need more extensive help, I feel no shame in referring them to see me or one of my coworkers in the writing center.
