do you ever have second-hand obsessions

like one of your friends is super obsessed with a thing so whenever you see something about it you’re like “YES THIS THING” but you’re not the one obsessed with it. they are. you know very little about this thing and yet it still excites you because it excites your friend

Hey Chuck! Love your work. What advice would you give for young writers?


Okay, long answer here.  A writer friend, Doug Coupland, recently told me about medical studies that suggest the final developmental changes in the human brain occur around the age of 31.  When asked, most people — for the rest of their lives, regardless of their actual age — will say they feel 31 years old.  I’d written for several years, but at 31 I wrote ‘Fight Club’ and that age seemed to allow me the peace to sit and concentrate.  A peace I didn’t have in my 20’s.  My advice is to live a rich, interesting life, practice writing if you want, but don’t beat yourself to produce your best work until after the age of 31.  Okay?  Okay.

Chester Bennington’s struggle with drug addiction and personal demons has been well documented. Is he in a better place nowadays?

“He’s in a great place nowadays. I’m really excited for him because he’s just such a funny guy. It’s funny. On this record, there’s some moments on the record that are really pissed. At one point, when we were finishing one of them, we were like, Dude, you’re such a happy guy that it’s funny seeing you turn that on and get so pissed. Because I know it’s coming from an honest place. He still has that when he thinks about it, he gets really upset. I remember one day, in the middle of a vocal take, he had to take like a two minute time out to get out of the head space of the song, to stop connecting with it in such a visceral way. He came back and finished the take and everything. It’s very real. It surprises me sometimes that it’s there because in general he’s such a happy and caring dude.”

I honestly think it was fate. The moment we stepped onto the stage at boot camp, and we performed together for the first time as a group, I looked around and thought, this is what I’ve been missing all my life. It sounds cheesy but it’s true.
