Today Charlie Sheen appeared on a lot of talk shows. Let’s see what he had to say to “set the record straight” …
On being on drugs:
I am on a drug. It’s called Charlie Sheen. It’s not available. If you try it once, you will die. Your face will melt off and your children will weep over your exploded body.
On how he reacted to the shutting down of Two and a Half Men:
I was disappointed. I think people misinterpret my passion for anger.
On suing CBS:
I don’t have a job. I’ve got a whole family to support and love. People a lot more important than me are relying on that money to fuel the magic.
On whether he is a violent person:
When it’s needed to protect my family, absolutely. And it’s unlike anything you will ever see.
On curing himself of addiction:
I closed my eyes and made it so with the power of my mind, and unlearned 22 years of fiction … the fiction of AA. It’s a silly book written by a broken-down fool…I am not an addict.
On why he turned to alcohol and drugs:
I did that because they work … change the way you see things and change the way you feel. And yeah, when you’re a little bit bored with the redundancy of certain aspects of your life, yeah, I think that’s why people do them.
On whether he will someday be embarrassed to have to explain his behaviour to his children:
God, no. Talk about an education. And then, like, this, and then that’s the guy, and that’s our dad and we can get all the answers and the truth? Wow, winning!
On how he avoids relapsing:
I just don’t do it. I will not believe that if I do something then I have to follow a certain path because it was written for normal people. People who aren’t special. People who don’t have tiger blood and Adonis DNA.
On life after Two and a Half Men:
Well, I mean, first of all come Wednesday morning they’re gonna rename it Charlie Bros. and not Warner Bros. Duh, winning! It’s, like, guys, IMDB right there, 62 movies and a ton of success. I mean, c’mon bro, I won best picture at 20. I wasn’t even trying. I wasn’t even warm.
Final thoughts on CBS:
Everybody thinks I should be begging for my job back, and I’m just gonna forewarn them, it’s everybody else who’s gonna be begging me for their job back. … If people think I’m insane or they don’t think that what I’m saying is true, I have no interest in their retarded opinions. I’m gonna live my life the way I want, I’m gonna win inside every moment, and they can just find the most comfortable chair in their small house and sit back and enjoy the show.
And finally, on himself:
I’m tired of pretending I’m not a total bitchin’ rock star from Mars.

Winning.


“KOMO 4 News reporter Shomari Stone made some news himself after stepping in to stop a street fight that broke out as he was setting up to shoot a report.

It gets better: After the altercation, Stone learned that the person on the receiving end of the beating was an alleged white supremacist with swastikas on his arm. “He thanked me, and I said to him ‘remember to judge the man by his character and not the colour of his skin’.”

Yeah…the perfect time to commit a robbery is in the middle of the day in front of that many witnesses and a news camera.

Hey James Franco, what do you think of all this?

BBC News – A restaurant in London’s Covent Garden is serving a new range of ice cream, made with breast milk. The dessert, called Baby Gaga, is churned with donations from 15 women who responded to an advertisement on an online mothers’ forum.

One of the women, Victoria Hiley, 35, said if adults realised how tasty breast milk was more new mothers would be encouraged to breastfeed. Each serving of Baby Gaga at Icecreamists costs £14. Mrs Hiley’s donation was expressed on site and pasteurised before being churned with Madagascan vanilla pods and lemon zest. Icecreamists founder Matt O’Connor placed an advert appealing for breast milk donations and believes his new recipe will be a success.
