Within two weeks Charlie sheen has gone from abusive ex, to former drug addict, to internet gold. This rise to popularity stems from his dismissal off the highly rated but few admit to watching show two and a half men.
Which I cannot believe has been on as long as it has, if this was 1989 I can see the shows appeal. Yet it’s one of the highest rated and most syndicated series on TV.
Charlie had a ”rough patch” at the end of last year and beginning of this year and the shows executives deemed fit to postpone the series’ season finale due to Charlie’s ”erratic” behavior.
This started a war that took on a new beast. Charlie took to the net and to any TV outlet that would air him, Most notably TMZ.
He then used the internet as his weapon of choice.
Going to social networking sites and using twitter to start a heated twitter war but it’s only solider is Charlie himself. The studio heads do not confront the attack but let Charlie ”burn his own bridge”
Thus the new found war changed from Charlie ”winning” to Charlie creating catchphrases and marketing himself via 140 characters.
His charlie-isms are stuff of legend.
Boom, crush. Night, losers. Winning, duh.
But you can’t focus on things that matter if all you’ve been is asleep for forty years. Funny how sleep rhymes with sheep. You know.Duh!
Fame is empowering. My mistake was that I thought I would instinctively know how to handle it. But there’s no manual, no training course. For now, I’m just going to hang out with these two smoking hotties and fly privately around the world. It might be lonely up here, but I sure like the view.
From my big beautiful warlock brain, welcome to ‘Sheen’s Korner’ … You’re either in my corner, or you’re with the trolls.
Here’s the good news. If I realize that I’m insane, then I’m okay with it. I’m not dangerous insane.
I am on a drug. It’s called Charlie Sheen.
I don’t have a tuxedo that fits anymore because my chest and my biceps are too big.
I don’t have time for their judgment and their stupidity and you know they lay down with their ugly wives in front of their ugly children and look at their loser lives and then they look at me and they say, ‘I can’t process it’ well, no, you never will stop trying, just sit back and enjoy the show. You know?I have a different constitution. I have a different brain; I have a different heart; I got tiger blood, man.
I have defeated this earthworm with my words. Imagine what I would have done with my fire breathing fists.
I have to tell them that last night was a shameful train wreck filled with blind cuddly puppies.
I just didn’t believe I was like everybody else. I thought I was unique.
I just don’t want to live like I used to. And at some point, I’m going to put a gag order on myself in terms of talking about the past. I’ve got to slam the door and deal with the present and the future.
I saw 28 Days. I don’t remember rehab being like a day camp or being that funny. Rehab is a dumping ground. It’s a big landfill.

Is this all a part of his master plan? Is he aware of all this or is it just dumb luck as he stumbles along a society filled with Americans who loves to see their idols burn in a blaze of glory
The train hasn’t completely wrecked yet and we keep watching. And Charlie keeps tweeting.
Is this going to end with Charlie Winning? Or will he end up another damaged soul in the cog of the master machine called Hollywood?
All I know is that youtube and snl are racking in a ton of ratings from the warlock of tiger’s blood himself pope ninja assassin Charlie sheen.
What’s next in this saga and when will it come to an end. All things viral have a short life and who knows where he will be by summer’s end.
