Charlie Sheen has been hitting the media trail hard the past few days. I find it not only fatiguing to see a guy dig a hole for himself, but also it makes me think…..but not before I present the
Funniest or Strangest Quotes (in my opinion) from the mouth of Charlie Sheen.
Sheen on his sons living with him:
“They run around and they’re as fun as you can imagine. They say ‘Dada’ and run into walls. And Dada is cool, but when they run into walls I say, ‘Don’t do that, that’s retarded.”
Sheen on Denise Richard’s helping him:
“Shows up looking the way she does. Look at her. Wow! Everybody’s winning. Boom!”
Sheen on his battle with CBS and Warner Brothers, to NBC:
“They’re trying to destroy my family, so I take great umbrage with that. And defeat is not an option. They picked a fight with a warlock.”
Sheen, on his otherworldliness, to NBC:
“I’m tired of pretending like I’m not special. I’m tired of pretending like I’m not a total bitchin’ rock star from Mars.”
Sheen on sobriety, to ABC (my personal fav)
“I am on a drug. It’s called Charlie Sheen. It’s not available, because if you try it once, you will die and your children will weep over your exploded body. Too much?”
On Sean Penn, who called to offer support
“He is the best actor in the history of the spoken word. We must honor him as a national hero, period the end. He’s got tiger blood, he’s got Adonis DNA, he gets it.”
Other Epic Quotes
“I’m different. I have a different constitution, I have a different brain, I have a different heart. I got tiger blood, man.”
“If you borrowed my brain for five seconds, you’d be like, ‘Dude! Can’t handle it, unplug this bastard!’ It fires in a way that’s maybe not from, uh… this terrestrial realm.”
In all seriousness, Charlie Sheen has been hitting the media trail hard the past few days. I find it not only fatiguing to see a guy dig a hole for himself, but also it makes me think.
To add in a final Charlie quote, “People can’t figure me out, they can’t process me, I don’t expect them to. You can’t process me with the normal brain.”
Although there is clearly something “off” about Charlie Sheen, he does make a good point about society and what is acceptable behavior and normalcy. What is normal?
I’m a hard working, mother of 2, striving to be a writer, figure out blogging, who also must work to keep the bills paid and teenager’s happy. I’m a free thinking person who does not believe in New Age motherhood and the hypochondriac world it creates for our children. My children were given pablum way before their “time”, they were on protein in record time, and they were not brought up in a home that was kid friendly. However, they have been sick perhaps five times in their fourteen and fifteen years of life and have no allergies. We struggle, boy do we struggle for success, which equals ultimate contentment and the resources and time to follow our dreams.
Despite Charlie’s neurotic desire to display his truth on every network channel, he’s a millionaire, whose rants have already generated offers from other sources besides CBS’ Two and a Half Men. He’s got a Hugh Hefner lifestyle, but according to his words – only bigger. If he’s not on some sort of trip to disaster, his natural high self esteem is quite unnerving. I do question though has his dreams been fulfilled? Is this display an overly exuberant show of ultimate contentment?
There are other artist’s out there where we all scratch our head and go hmmm? There has been Lilo, Gibson, Spears (who’s on her way back to the top). However, despite their neurosis, they have followed their dreams.
So I ask, do you have to have a little crazy in you to obtain the resources and time to fulfill your dreams? Does your dream involve being a little crazy? Is your dream simply typical normalcy, where you go to the work you’ve trained for, have the kid’s you dreamed of, and the car you’ve always wanted?
Are the day to day struggling folks normal or is it those who are a little neurotic, who take the chances and have the breakdowns, who learn the true meaning of life? I know many people who’ve fallen off the normal wagon, including me. However, when all was said, done and after we’ve dusted off the dirt, did we succumb to normalcy too quickly and avoid pursuing our dreams?
These thoughts are getting a little too neurotic for me and I hope I’ve made my point without sounding too crazy. Point made, I want to write, so I should think about adding a little tigerblood and crazy to my breakfast.
All I can say, if Charlie Sheen needs help, I hope he gets it. He’s a fabulous artist who has brought many a giggle to us “normal” folk. Don’t judge too quickly, there will be a comeback.
