This will not end well

You know the people who are saying Charlie Sheen might actually do better without his sitcom gig, now that he’s internet famous? Yeah, I entertained the thought, until I saw that last video.

Dude looks like shit.

Old. And sick. And beat-down.

And crazy, of course. The crazy goes without saying. You can be as balls-out crazy as you like, but if you want to hang on to your celebrity status, you simply cannot look bad.

A) I’m stealing that


B) The problem is, he REALLY LOOKS LIKE THAT now!

Sucks when real life trumps art….. 😉

Who is ‘Charlie Sheen’?

Is this a test?

Oh, Uncle Badger, I’m so glad someone else asked that question–I didn’t want to reveal my ignorance, but I don’t mind if I am in good company.

Oi, you two — BUY A TELEVISION. (Actually, Uncle B has one, but he only watches quality television. Pff!).

Son of Martin Sheen. Part of an acting dynasty of many little Sheens, some of whom use the original family name of Estevez.

Charlie was until recently the highest paid actor on TV, part of the most popular show (which I’ve only ever seen on in-flight TV headed to and from the States). Famous for his off-screen binges and orgies.

He is currently melting down in a way that suggests either long-term drug damage or bipolar disorder. Manic psychosis, looks like. He got fired from his show yesterday, but he has discovered Twitter and webcasting and he’s taking his case to the people directly, with results that are either tragic or hilarious depending on your empathy level.

I’m currently going with “hilarious” — I’m not convinced he’s not simply a giant douchenozzle.

I was watching one of these last night. Yeah he looks like crap, but part of it is the really bad lighting. The other part is that the drugs really are taking their toll. Still I was wondering if this isn’t some big publicity stunt. I guess not since they took his kids away.

2.5 Men was a pretty good show in the earlier years, but I stopped watching entirely the last few seasons.

Sorry, Stoaty, but I infinitely prefer keeping up with current events in the entertainment world by following your blog–which is actually entertaining.

How much of a train wreck are we talking? Here’s the first frame of last night’s video next to a publicity still from December:

Ffffffading ffffast.

I’m glad it’s not just me, Can’t Hark…

So much my tired old brain can’t understand. Like just what manner of moral delinquents have we elected, who can sit on their hands while a psycopath like Gaddafi is allowed to lay waste his own people, while they stand idly by.

This Sheen person is just bread. Or circuses. Or crystal meth by the look of him. I neither know, nor care.

Uncle B, I can’t actually lay claim to that moral high ground. I have a frippery mind. . .but it prefers printed frivolity. >>hangs head in shame<<

It’s not moral high ground, Can’t Hark. If I clambered up onto that I’d only make a fool of myself – the truth is I’m mostly too selfish to care.

Anyway, at least twenty times a day I slam the phone down and shout ‘Guards! Seize that man!’ to no one in particular.

I’d be a great disinfectant if I were suddenly appointed God, let’s just put it that way.

But the affairs of twopenny-halfpenny players? I don’t care and they can’t make me. They only do it so they can hide the pea under the third walnut shell from the left and steal my money.

WOW.. Just.. WOW..

Celebrating women around the world with a fisting meme?

Not particularly cool.

Sort of depends on the site where you found it, but it doesn’t show up in a search on “International Women’s Day” & “we didn’t stop,” which to me suggests that it is, at best, not endorsed by the IWD organizers. Assuming there are such. Really, kindofa pointless event, it seems to me. But then, I’m not all that excited by organized events in general.

It shows up (with many variations) if you do an Google Images search.

And he’s a truther, and no, I do not approve of encouraging women to practice fisting as a form of social justice.

Gracious! That blew my eyebrows off. But, well–it appears to me that the variations are more the result of naivete than anything else; someone combining the Venus symbol with the raised-fist-of-worker-solidarity without really thinking through the resulting image. Although it is admittedly difficult to imagine how one can be that oblivious in this age. The image you targeted? Well, I could go either way on that. But on either hand, I agree it is in remarkably bad taste. Naivete only excuses so much. . .

[fx: manipulates tricorder, eliciting a few minor beeps] Ah. Here it is, the give-a-s*t function. [Aims pickup at Charlie Sheen] Hmm. -82 dB(s). Maybe if it was cryogenically cooled the s/n would be good enough to detect the amount of s*t I give.

ROFLMAO!!!! Apparently, the FREE ART AND TECHNOLOGY LAB has created a plugin for Firefox and Chrome that will automatically redact any mention of Charlie Sheen, including photo’s with his name in the metadata from your browser…….

I know who Charlie Sheen is, but don’t care. I’m a public school teacher who has absolutely no sympathy for someone who makes as much money as he does for something so unimportant (bread and circuses notwithstanding) and squanders all of it so stupidly. What he wastes on drugs in a year could probably run my school for 2 years.

And like Uncle B said, it’s not like there are any serious things going on in the world or anything. Tail, wag dog.

How much drugs has Charlie Sheen consumed?…..

Hey Stoaty! I want to borrow one of your adorable weasel graphics to use in a presentation. The one I want is the one you used to have in place when you were working on a website. She had a wrench in her paws and a real determined look. You know the one I mean? May I borrow it please?

Two and a Half Men is funny. But it’s a sitcom. That means the funny is in the writing. Which the writers do. Which Charlie Sheen ain’t one of. Talk about shitting on your own doorstep. Also it’s a bummer for Ducky and the fat kid and Ryan from Whose Line is it Anyway? Chuck Lorre probably couldn’t give a shit: he’s got Big Bang Theory as a backstop.

And yeah, it’s hilarious. Mel Brooks put it best: tragedy is when I cut my finger. Comedy is when you fall in an open sewer and die.

Help yourself, Mitchell. The one you remember is here. There’s a better version here, but you’d have to do a little Photoshoppical surgery on it.

Oh yes! It’s so perfect for what I want to do. We have a turf conversion program that we actually call “Weasel” and I want to show how well it’s working. This will be the hit of the presentation! 🙂

It’s driving me crazy, Mitchell. That graphic comes from a digital painting I did called Industry Needs Weasels, and I can’t remember where it is or what I made it for.

Weirdly, I found it on Iamfelix’s site, but couldn’t find it on mine. It’s from my old WordPress account.

Beware: more than one link in a comment is apt to earn you a trip to the spam filter, where you will remain -- cold, frightened and alone -- until I remember to clean the trap. But, hey, without Akismet, we'd be up to our asses in...well, ass porn, mostly.
