Link.

Sheen's performance in Oliver Stone's "Platoon" was absolutely outstanding. I am so perplexed as to how he arrived where he is now.

Drugs and fatal self-esteem issues, each of which exacerbates the other. My brother's in a similar spiral, and lacks only the money and fame to make it equally legendary.

Maybe the last ghost of his artistic integrity forced him to try and make at least a small effort of rebellion against that terrible, terrible, unfunny show.

Glad the show is done.

Sure thing, sheen baby. You're 'winning.'

Wow. Just wow.

quote:
On Alcoholics Anonymous ... Sheen says it's a "bootleg cult" with a success rate of only 5%, while his is 100% and added, "Newsflash .. I am special and I will never be one of you."

quote:
-- After one rant the host, Alex Jones, tells Charlie he sounds like Thomas Jefferson. Charlie's response, "I'm not Thomas Jefferson. He was a p***y! But I dare anyone to debate me on things."
quote:
There's more ... much more -- including sometime incomprehensible riffs about trolls, tattoos, F-18 fighter pilots, and Vatican assassins.

Maybe he's trying to bomb the show to fulfill a public service as part of a plea bargain.

I don't think the implication was supposed to be that Jefferson was a pussy, period. I think Sheen meant to say he was a pussy compared to Charlie Sheen.

It's like if I said, "Einstein was a moron. I'm way better at math than he ever was."

I know that I am a lesser man than Charlie Sheen, he has survived great amounts of drugs over and over and he came so close to having a manufactured family of porn stars. Not even Tom Cruise giving birth to Woody Harrelsons love child is that impressive.

Nescafe is terrible. You drink it, and before you know it, you're hallucinating and inciting Middle Eastern countries to revolution.

I kind of just have two questions about this.

ONE: why doesn't beating up women make you a social pariah in hollywood as easily as being racist? Why would anyone give Sheen a show again?

TWO: how much does your life have to suck before you actually sit down and regularly watch this show? Are you old? A recluse who can't get enough entertainment out of the internet? Misanthropic enough that you can't go out with friends instead because you have none? Are you fundamentally boring as a human being? What is wrong. What happened. Where did you go wrong.

wait there's a third question:

Who here hasn't tried nescafe? I think I should go find some. You only see it on every single shelf of any grocery in latin america, but I can't find it here.

You become a pariah in Hollywood by being less profitable. You can be a kick-ass action hero on screen, but when people find out you're gay, your stock drops. Who wants to sink 150 million $ into your movie when they're afraid you're going to be photographed lip-locking Tom Cruise on the beach the night before your film is released? Ditto for romantic leads. Even if only 10-15% of moviegoers decide they don't want to watch you in a certain kind of role, that's enough to destroy the profit margin of some movies.

Call it the Anne Heche effect.

Sheen acts like an ass in real-life, then plays an ass on tv, and it doesn't hurt the show. The "bad" publicity, up to a point, helps his show's ratings. I think his latest hi-jinks crossed the line because he's starting to look like he may end up being committed or being too brain-cooked to work on new episodes. Hence, he is at a risk of being "unprofitable."

Uh... Maybe that's a bad example...

quote:
On August 19, 2000, Heche knocked on the door of a home in Fresno, California. Dazed and scantily clad, Heche said her SUV had broken down, asked to take a shower, and then made herself at home. When the police arrived a short time later, Heche, who had publicly announced the end of her headline-grabbing three-year relationship with DeGeneres the day before, declared she was God and would take everyone back to heaven in her spaceship. Press reports at the time explained that her disorientation was the result of mental illness—fueled by the drug Ecstasy, according to Heche—stemming from childhood abuse by her father, which led her to create an alter ego named Celestia, who was "daughter of God, half-sibling of Christ, and that she was to spread a message of love to this stricken planet before ascending into Heaven."

Ooooh, yikes, I had no idea Anne Heche had so many issues.

I was grasping for an example of how being outed as a homosexual could be detrimental to getting roles as a romantic leading man/ lady.

Maybe it could be the William Shatner effect: could you watch him in an action role without hearing his 911 call (when his wife drowned) in the back of your mind?

Regardless, this all just my opinion.

Also not a good example. In the years since his wife's death, Shatner has seen a resurgence in popularity with several Emmys and many more Emmy noms to his name for "Boston Legal." And Anne Heche's career also has improved since her very public breakdown.

The celebs who seem to lose public approval are the ones who not only break down, but do so in a scornful, abusive way that displays hateful parts of their personality or disdain for their fans.

Charlie Sheen is a warlock!

On a positive note, he passed his GMA drug test.

quote:
Sheen also made the RadarOnline editor pledge to drink his urine if he passed but, thankfully, did not hold him to it.
"Thankfully"?!? Hey man, a deal's a deal!

The party after that must have been awesome, though.

In all seriousness, I'm starting to think that what's going on with Sheen is less "Drugs and fatal self-esteem issues" and really actually "severe, unmedicated mania" — the more I read his quotes, the more I can only guess that this is a major hypomanic peak, that sheen is probably severely bipolar, and needs to man up and get medicated.

Or, you know, he'll probably kill himself within five years.

And yeah, he definitely comes across as manic. I wonder how much he's sleeping at this point? Maybe 4-5 hours a night, I'd guess.

manic episodes like this are where people generally piss away their finances, chase off their friends and business prospects, waste all their cash, and — oh hey, are the least likely to be individually convinced that they're actually being insane and need to medicate themselves pronto.

It reminds me of the absolutely stellar pun from Scott Pilgrim, where Ramona says "I was just a little bi-curious" and her lesbian ex responds "And I'm bi-FURIOUS!"

Oh I see how it is. Poor folks like me, have to sit in the back of the bus, while uppity rich folks like you tell the driver where you'd like to go.

In all seriousness, I still think solving poverty is still a greater net gain over even cheap energy. Cheap energy certainly helps pull people out of poverty, but ultimately we are still going to have the haves and havenots. We will still have criminals, and those who cannot climb out of their circumstances.

edit: Further, with poverty solved, and all that brain power going towards other pursuits, there would be more effort expended towards things like upper education, hobbies, designing, tinkering, and your problem would most likely be solved as well.
