...and then it got weird.

In a recent interview with TMZ.com, Charlie Sheen, the star of "Two and a Half Men," claimed he was not high or crazy when he called out his former network and the executive producer of his show.

In a recent interview with TMZ.com, the actor stated that he was wrongly fired from his network. His network says he was fired after a series of erratic behavior that ended in him claiming that his producer, Chuck Lorre, actually secretly goes by Chaim Levine or some damn thing. He also called numerous people at his network and production crew a bunch of bizarre things. He did make fun of Scientology, so there's that. This bizarre behavior has been going on for a while with Mr. Sheen recently stayed in rehab as well as the focus of a police psych hold after he was found in a hotel naked and throwing furniture around.

He summarized his position in another interview with NBC wherein he stated: "I'm tired of pretending like I'm not special. I'm tired of pretending like I'm not bitching a total freaking rock star from Mars. And people can't figure me out. They can't process me. I don't expect them to. You can't process me with a normal brain... [I have] tiger blood and Adonis DNA."

In the interim, Sheen has demanded CBS and Warner Brothers pay out the rest of his contract and blames them for the current impasse. He also fired his publicist once the gentleman announced he was unable to continue representing Mr. Sheen.

From my live Twitter feed.  Come on and sign up to follow me.  You know you want to because I am the world's most interesting man.

I exposed people to magic.  

I'm not Thomas Jefferson. He was a pussy. This may not be historically accurate.

I live inside the truth, and you cannot debate me. The truth is a lot like a snuggie. And you can't argue with someone in a snuggie.

I have one speed, go. This can be especially dangerous in school zones.

The run I was on made Sinatra, Flynn, Jagger, Richards & all of them look like droopy-eyed armless children. Ran a 5K to help armless kids.

You borrow my brain for five seconds and just be like 'Dude, can't handle it. Unplug this bastard.' My brain runs on Dunkin'.

They can't hang with me. Their bones would melt like wax. I am unable to party at Madame Tussauds Wax Museum.

I have a 10,000-year-old brain and the boogers of a seven-year-old.

I closed my eyes and in a nanosecond I cured myself. I find closing your eyes is key. If you don't close your eyes you won't be cured.

I'm a fucking F-18. I got tiger's blood and Adonis DNA, hookers by the boatload and a metric assload of blow. Bite me. Just fucking bite me.

4.00 (perspective)

Well, I've seen some bits of Sheen's interviews, and there is something exhilerating about his devil-may-care attitude and refusal to grovel before the expectations of the crowd. The thing is that I've seen a number of addicts get to this point, and it never ends well. The fire burns brightest just before it either goes out for good or erupts into a blaze. Either the inevitable OD or getting behind the wheel of a car and forcing a schoolbus off a bridge are the usual endings for this stage.

The other point is what incentive CBS has to deal with this impending train-wreck. They would love to have more episodes in the can for future syndication, but if the show never finishes up they will just make a bit less money, that's all. I saw an item today that said that CBS still makes $10 million a year off of I Love Lucy, which finished production 54 years ago. Sheen can sue their butts off, but in the long run they own the property, and the way its going only Charlie's heirs will be around for the court decision.

5.00 (sweet, transcendent)

Is it possible all the discussions around concern for "addicts", "getting weird", "bottoming out", etc. are veiled attempts to justify our own relatively melancholy existences?

His sense of humor and personality is adored by millions, he's rolling in money, and he's surrounded by young and beautiful women. He speaks his mind, and has a creative and passionate way of doing so.  He seems to be enjoying life, if not just living it vigorously. Sounds good to me. It actually sounds awesome.

Unfortunately he may be morally bankrupt.

But with that, he enjoys the pleasure of not caring. It's a win-win for him, and provides another challenge to consciously maintaining our own more civilized lives full of self-restraint and denial.

The guy is a rock star, and we're the smelly teenage punks wearing headphones, staring at his album covers. We have a choice to make.

We can call David Lee Roth gay and insist it's all been downhill since Van Halen I, or we can buy a ticket and rock out with him.

If he goes up in pyrotechnics, all the better. Awesome encore, dude. We'll never forget it.

And for you haters, enjoy some no-name's acoustic tribute set in the Holiday Inn lounge.  It sounds very pleasant.

I don't think it's an either-or issue.  And I wonder who's really in denial.

What makes him morally bankrupt? That he does/did drugs and fuck pornstars/hookers? I know straight-edge, monogamous people that would kick a homeless man in the face asking for change.

Maybe it's the violence and the anti-Semitic comments that might qualify? And lesser so, the arrogance and condescension?

He's violent? Oh his thing with Capri Anderson at the hotel... doesn't look like the hookers are concerned about him being violent.

As for his estranged wife, who is in drug rehab, and is still spending time with Sheen, their children, and his "goddesses"... none of me wants to take her seriously.

I guess if you don't take what any hooker might say or trust evidence in past cases or see any kind of pattern (scroll down to time line), then, no, he's quite the stand-up guy.

I'm pretty sure that Brooke Mueller even rolled back her allegations after the overall, as evidenced by the link you posted:

Galanter, who also has represented Sheen's wife, said she is "totally on board" with the plea agreement.

"Brooke wanted the charges dismissed completely and still does," Galanter said.

As for patterns, from "Jezebel" of all links? The biggest man-hating rag in the world? The same site that accused Jon Stewart of women-hating? LOL And got bitch-slapped by all the women on staff at the Daily Show? Ya... no.

All the pattern really says is that crazy people like to hang out with each other and sometimes get into relationships with each other and, invariably, the mutual craziness causes really strange and (you guessed it) crazy shit to happen.

Charlie Sheen is crazy (check)
The women that get with Charlie Sheen (and sometimes have children with him) are crazy (check)
Any of their allegations should be taken seriously. (not check)

That time line was on other sites as well. But I can see that no link or source will change your mind about his propensity for violence and particularly for threats thereof.

Well, I'll not miss the show, but I don't really see any reason to end it at this point.  Sure he's been a bit wilder lately, but is this really new behavior?  I mean, at least the guy gives you something to watch.  And most importantly, the ratings aren't going down.

It's pretty clear from the "Chaim Levine" link that the the producer sort of viewed the show as a joke at the expense Charlie Sheen from before the thing started, and he's been egging him on, trying to get him to act out more.  Maybe try it without him?

Maybe the real problem is that the show is on CBS, and they don't want to be thought lowbrow.

Ok, so the guy is finally bottoming out, but who the fuck cares? The true hint that he is in the stratosphere is the fact that he thinks everyone does. Like there's a legion of fans out there waiting to storm the walls of CBS demanding they give Tigerblood his job back.

This is what happens when you mix money and addiction...instead of just fading into his place under the bridge, we have to hear about it. Please, America, News organizations and tabloids...stop covering Charlie Sheen.

Though to be fair, there's a difference between "caring" about a grisly car crash and simply craning your neck as you drive by to catch a glimpse of the carnage.

So true, as maybe evidenced by the number of comments on that story so far -- a big, fat zero.

No, the complete opposite--he supported Obama in '08. He is, however, a 9/11 skeptic.
