Two quotes from one Mr. Charlie Sheen:
“Sure, I did a lot of things in excess. But if you look at the core, the foundation of what I pursued, what red-blooded young American male in my position wouldn’t?”
“Slash sat me down at his house and said, You’ve got to clean up your act. You know you’ve gone too far when Slash is saying, Look, you’ve got to get into rehab.”
Just the other day I was telling Maria that she ever gets bored and wanted to read some fascinating celebrity shit, she should look up Charlie Sheen’s wikipedia page. If you’ll pardon the pun, the man’s lived and created enough weirdness for two and a half men. (Sorry.)
The other day I click on an article with this amazing headline: Charlie Sheen loses his wallet, goes on naked, drunk, coke-fueled, hooker-threatening rampage.
I mean, I believe that, in that the parlance of our times, you’d refer to this as “Party time!” See:
I love how someone in his position can go ahead and add an anecdote like that to his already storied life and then afterward The Man will fly him back to LA on a private jet. The message is clear here: Get rich (cause money never sleeps, yo) and famous and powerful, however you need to, and then just have some fun. If enough people eat their dinner because of you, then you’ll have more than enough people there to catch your fall. Go crazy!
How cool would be a video game based on the life of Carlos Irwin Estevez?
That said, if we’re going to live in a society obsessed with the rich and famous, for following every detail of the lives of those who appear on our TV and movie screens, then I’m glad we have him. We need less Justin Biebers and more Charlie Sheens.
