To the PALAHNIUK in Me! (Praising the Man who taught me how to live)

Most people spend their lives searching for that special someone...I spent a great number of years searching for that special book lol!

I always read what's on the for the picture..check the first page..the edition..!

Two years ago, I took a book of the shelf of a book store and bought it without knowing neither the name of the book nor the name of the author!!!!

Typically NOT ME!

It wasn't like a blind date between me and the book but I was shocked when I came to read it at night and found out it was about a porn queen who wanted to make a top record for all generations with 600 guys in one porn movie!

The book is called Snuff!

The author, who became my tutor for life, is called Chuck Palahniuk!

ok..I know..pronounced Paulanick (for americans)...Palahnyook (for british)...If it's still hard, call him chuck!

Now Please, allow me to Palahniucate ur life for a while ;)

"All the effort in the world won’t matter if you’re not inspired."
— Chuck Palahniuk

Ever asked urself why U ended up resigning from the job that u fucked up ur life just for the sake of proving u can do ur best...U DID UR BEST IN WHAT'S NOT BEST FOR U

well that job didn't resemble never conveyed what u truly are!
Why U broke up..that relationship was already as lousy as shit...his/her existence in ur life was never as passionately inspiring as eating a Kitkat bar!

keep telling urself I did my best!


"The unreal is more powerful than the real. Because nothing is as perfect as you can imagine it. Because it’s only intangible ideas, concepts, beliefs, fantasies that last. Stone crumbles, wood rots. People, well, they die, but things as fragile as an idea or a thought, they can live forever "
— Chuck Palahniuk

U can go out with ur friends, talk with ur family, study and work all the same, but still what matters at the end is what happens between the walls of ur brain. What u write down in ur diary, what u think of behind ur bedroom's closed door!

What is ur conception of perfection...In real TV, u don't have a perfection manual, it's ur mind that sets the rules of perfection and believe me, it varies from one person to another!

After all, it's ur imagination that rules ur conceptions!


"I spent my life attacking everything because I was too afraid to risk creating anything."
— Chuck Palahniuk

When was the last time u took the risk of provoking a sleeping lion just to experience how would its reaction be?
when was the last time u thought u're incapable of creating or achieving anything because ur not free enough to do so?
when was the last time u blamed ur society or ur country for not giving u the chance of becoming a genius?
BELIEVE ME...u attack society because u're just scared to face it...u're scared to show how different u are!


"People don’t want their lives fixed. Nobody wants their problems solved. Their dramas. Their distractions. Their stories resolved. Their messes cleaned up. Because what would they have left? Just the big scary unknown."
— Chuck Palahniuk

We are the tragic heroes of our own history books...We all know, by a way or another, that tragic ends spice up our lives rather than silly happy endings...when it's always tragic, this means u're strong, u're enduring...u're sacrificing...U R A HERO!
When u're complicated...u're different...u're tragically superior...u will be acknowledged as the sacrificing hero after u die!

People will praise ur death on Facebook groups!


"You’re a different human being to everybody you meet."
— Chuck Palahniuk

Believe it or not, everyone who sees u for the first time will end up with a different point of view after a couple of meetings with u...and every new person who meets u conceives u as a different block of qualities!

U r only ONE person to urself...but a million different persons to all the others!

u r only You when u r with u!...the rest just magnify what concerns them in u and throw the rest in the bin.


"You grow up to become living proof of your parent’s limitations. Their less-than-masterpiece."
— Chuck Palahniuk

We are trained not to think, not to try anything new...and if we want to, we have to do it behind closed doors.
If u were born on a certain religion and u would like to read a holy book of another religion, u can't do it at home..ur parents would never understand!
U have to find somewhere else behind their backs to enlighten urself religiously (even if u're not planning to convert)
movies, magazines, phone calls...u prefer taking care of these thing in ur room..alone..away from their eyes!

Ur parents end up wanting u to become a youthful version of their decaying youth!

And u end up as complicated as a cat stuck in a water pipe!!!


"If you can change the way people think. The way they see themselves. The way they see the world. You can change the way people live their lives. That’s the only lasting thing you can create."
— Chuck Palahniuk

Why do people always state how they feel in their notes..I mean why can't we just try to express our own view point of life instead of lamenting our dead cold suffocating passions!
Why don't we express our deepest opinions about every aspect in life...ok, what about inventing our own theories...helping each other to respect what we don't believe in!
Why can't we share the ATTITUDE!

It won't take half an hour to write down an idea that changed ur life..when u post it have faith it may change another life!..even if it was a line from a song!


"Some people are just born human. The rest of us, we take a lifetime to get there."
— Chuck Palahniuk

Do not think it's an easy thing being a human being...we've been granted things to use:

If u couldn't use ur brain to create what would last after u're gone then tuck ur head in ur dirty socks and cry urself to death in ur closet!

if u couldn't use ur hands to paint or write or invent something...then chain ur hands in ur ceiling lamp and wait till the heat eat ur brain!

if u couldn't work ur legs to new places that helped u explore God's universe then lay as a tarot's hanged man in ur fridge until u rot!

if u think u're not capable of proving how humane u r..then go to hell!


"Not everybody enjoys baseball or even fishing, but every person is obsessed with himself. You are your own favorite hobby. You’re an expert on you."
— Chuck Palahniuk

U r a liar if u say u're not!
We are all obsessed about what we wear, how we look, what we think about, how to prove that we are better, how to kidnap the attention when we step in a room, how to prove we're beautiful, or complicated, or lunatics, how careless we are, how dashing, how daring, how sensitive, how loving, how cute or sexy, veiled or showing our hair, lipsticks or no lipsticks, muscles or sense of humour, looks or brains!

We are our own Angels and Demons!


"You will always have some excuse not to live your life."
— Chuck Palahniuk

My parents..controlling every breath I take
My society..blocking my freedom of thought
My not giving me the chance to become the genius I was meant to be
The patriarchal mentality is not appreciating my freedom as a woman
The patriarchal mentality is not showing its capability towards my needs as a woman
The matriarchal mentality is so silly and stubborn towards my authority as a man
The school is not's not like Europe
The collage is lousy, we're not educated like Europe
The working field is crappy as shit..They fuck the shit out of me and am not paid well
I can't find a job that suits me
I don't have time to socialise, am always working
I can't find a job, am always sitting at home or in cafes
I want to get married but I can't find someone who understands me
I don't want to get married because i don't want to lose my freedom
I want a relationship but I fear commitment
I want a divorce
I want kids
I don't want kids



"Find good in what the world says is evil."
— Chuck Palahniuk

Try for once when u watch a movie, to concentrate on the villain instead of the hero. Try to focus on the other one, the bad not the good, the monster of Frankenstein!
Try to see what made Hannibal Lectar Hannibal Lectar!
Try to pay attention to ur demon...check his point of view...not all demons tell us to smoke or drink or steal..some push us toward sadistic turn overs we never thought we have!

People may condemn Hitler for his racism but I have to praise his nationalism..I would love to love my Country the way he loved his country!
I may cheer for Churchill for saying "never never never give up"

Dare to touch the untouchable!


Thank u Chuck, for u have taught me what made me who I am right now!

....and u're still teaching me!

I will always be a faithful Palahniuaholic until death do us apart!

Chuck Palahniuk is the author of:

1.Fight Club
3.Invisible monsters
10.Tell All
12.Stranger than fiction

  1. WOW! It's been ages since I read anyone who's so passionate about an author like that, and you know what? I'm really jealous! I've never did that, picking a book I don't know and go home and read it. Rather I bought tens of books that would last me for a lifetime and now I am entrapped with them. My closest experience was when I bought Orlando by Virginia Woolf and she turned out to be my favorite author of all time.

    Did you try doing it again? Or the 1st time is always the best?
