The Oscars have been upstaged already…by Charlie Sheen
Dave Ross Commentary – Listen: The Oscars have been upstaged already…by Charlie Sheen
King’s Speech, Black Swan – they were OK but Charlie Sheen has become the one man show nobody can NOT watch:
“I’ve been kicked around. I’ve been criticized. I’ve been the aw-shucks guy with this bitchin’ rock star life, and I’m just finally going to completely embrace it, and defend it violently, through violent hatred”
I get the point. He’s fed up. He’s had it. He will not succumb to anyone’s idea of Hollywood correctness:
“You’d borrow my brain for five seconds and just be like ‘Dude, can’t handle it, unplug this,’ because it just fires in a way that is maybe not from this particular terrestrial realm.”
He is a visitor from another planet with powers and abilities far beyond those of mortal men. A living ganglion of irreconcilable antagonisms. The only drug he uses is the one he was born with:
“I am on a drug. It’s called Charlie Sheen. It’s not available because if you try it once you will die. Your face will melt off and your children will weep over your exploded body. Too much?”
Not Charlie — not too much.
Like King George VI he has finally found his voice. Like the Black Swan he will immerse himself in his role, even if consumes him. Like the rebellious unions in Wisconsin he will fight for his rights as a worker. Like the rebellious masses in the middle east he accept nothing less than freedom.
Fly Charlie, fly:
We who you have entertained will have to make do with our memories.
