The man is obviously suffering from severe mental illness. It seems almost cruel all this attention the media are giving him. Watching Charlie Sheen right now feels like watching someone take the plunge off of the Golden Gate Bridge.

My concern about Charlie Sheen jokes is that I think he might have experienced a legitimate psychotic break, perhaps caused by his drug binge, perhaps the end result of a long mental illness that hasn't been properly addressed. As much as I appreciate his ability to create an extraordinary sentence, I want to be cautious, in case it turns out I am mocking a mad person.

I woudn't blame anybody else for doing so, as he's a raving asshole. But I am trying to limit my mocking to behavior that is volitional.

He seemed a a teensy bit better when he was outside talking with Rosen this morning. I think what will help him is to have people take him away from his element so he's not so focused on himself and can maybe catch a glimpse into a bigger world again. Those women at his house are not helping him.

I love Sheen's quotes. I'm usually sensitive to mental illness but I'm not sure if i'm seeing the illness. I sometimes write hyperbolic self-mythology for myself and I am an utter loser (including stuff about being a wizard and a God). Charlie Sheen makes millions for being in a crappy sitcom. He lives in a house made of porn stars and cocaine. Why WOULDN'T he have an inflated self image?

They really are extraordinary, there's no doubt about that.

So many people today are ironic or self-effacing. Sheen might be a strange person to bring back heroic boasting but he's the best we got. At least until I go viral

What is interesting to me, is that Charlie Sheen (Real Person) is in the process of becoming, for all practical purposes, a "fictional character" for most of us. He has gone far enough over the edge that he now "exists" as a repository for people's judgment. I'm not saying people shouldn't judge him; it's what we do. I'm suggesting that he now serves the purposes of those that moralize against him just as much as he is serving the purposes of those that take advantage of his behavior.

We seem to need the corrupt to reflect back to us our integrity. We, as a culture, also tend to idolize to some degree those that transgress intensely enough to become caricatures of themselves. We like our rock stars to be ROCK STARS. Rock stars do everything we can't. Or wouldn't do. And then they crash and burn. And if they have made a significant enough contribution, we call them heroes. (Hunter S. Thompson, Kurt Cobain, Bukowski, and on and on.) Unfortunately, Charlie Sheen's contributions do not elevate him to that status. He remains a clown. But we clearly find him a useful clown. If only to give us the chance to call him one.

Personally, it's disturbing to recognize (intimately) nearly all the symptoms of a significant and prolonged manic episode. His lifestyle, and the continued access he has to it, only adds tinder to the flames. And the bigger fire will need to be fed. It's only recently that we have been able to witness, in real time, somebody so publicly unedited, go through such an episode. I hope he get's real help.

These Family Circus parodies are funny.

Mental illness isn't funny, and I hope Sheen gets the help he seems to need. OTOH, there's something kind of liberating and fun about this crazy manic stuff. I mean fuck yeah, he is Charlie Sheen, and he is kind of awesome. It's sort of interesting seeing someone be so much the opposite of restrained, or modest. And just say "fuck yeah I did a 7g rock and it was awesome". There's something sort of fun hearing that, or at least it is until he ends up dead.

See also Britney's New Look, one of South Park's most biting bits of satire in the history of the show.

Why WOULDN'T he have an inflated self image?

There's, like, Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark in the first movie inflated self-image, where your pals realize you need handling because you're a rock star in your own mind and everyone else is feeding that image?

And then there's going on TV explaining to people that your warlock mind powers cured your epic-level cocaine habit, describing everything in terms of religious war, and not sleeping. That's not just inflated self-image, it's a recognized pattern of disordered thought.

There needs to be SOMEBODY saying stuff like this, somebody claiming they're above and beyond regular humanity. There needs to be wizards and warlocks and shamen and ROCK STARS and heroes. Charlie Sheen is a shit actor in a shit sitcom, but lines like "Imagine what I can do with my fire breathing fists" and "I'm tired of pretending I'm not a total bitchin' rock star from Mars' are what we NEED in this world of mediocrity and economics.

I don't support the violence or the crap sitcom. But the WORDS themselves are powerful.

"Naturally, because this was Stern's show, the conversation soon turned to Sheen’s life with “The Goddesses”—Sheen’s live-in duo of girlfriends that includes graphic designer Natalie Kenly and porn star Bree Olson—about which Stern declared, “You live like a king!” Sheen replied, “And why shouldn’t I?”"

He understands the nature of power and celebrity.

Sheen... Sheen's language has the same uneasy "that shouldn't be happening in there" feeling that Serene Branson's on-camera complex migraine had a couple weeks ago.

It's the old "dead, mad, or a poet" conundrum. Either you burn up trying to harness your talent, you go crazy coping with it, or you learn to discipline yourself to use it before it destroys you.

I'm saying he's a disturbed man, talented but out of control and exhibiting profound symptoms of mental disturbance, and he needs a lot of help to get back to somewhere where he can rebuild his life, his relationship to his kids, and his career.

Casanova is the Matt Fraction/ Gabriel Ba/ Fabio Moon book that put all three of them on the map a few years back. I recommend it to you, actually; it's epic pulp sci-fi, inspired by stuff like Danger: Diabolik and crazy pseudoscience. Marvel's Icon line has been reprinting it and putting out nice new TPBs; don't get the Image issues or TPBs, they don't have the full-color art and nice hand-lettering.

I started to watch an interview with him on Youtube from Good Morning America today, but I couldn't do it. I wanted to see what he was like in real life instead of just reading transcripts, but it was a total flashback to interacting with a member of my family who was a meth addict. Not the words, necessarily, but the twitching, jerky, loopy way of moving, the edginess, the things that just don't make sense but OK, you go with it, the glazed eyes, the adolescent defensiveness... it was a little too real for me. Somehow I can find the crazy stuff he says funny out of context, but I couldn't watch that video.

I like the new Charlie Sheen. I'm sick of these celebrities pretending like they give a shit about their rehab. The narcicicsm that put them on the stage in the first place hasn't gone anywhere because if it had they wouldn't be making shows anymore and going on late night TV to talk about how famous they are and share stories about what a party animal they were. I respect Sheen for his embrace of total hedonism, living for the moment enlightenment that emerged from his the delerium of rehab. It may be he's just bi-polar and about to flame out into can't get out of bed delerium, but until then I say rock on.

I have a tough time believing it was actually his piss that was clean. Clearly, Charlie Sheen is deeply unwell.

I am deeply ashamed at the American media's continued exploration into the Celebrity Breakdown Porn Extravaganza. Charlie Sheen is deeply ill, and his celebrity status and wealth allow him to continue to destabilize his own life - and evidently take others down in his wake. I couldn't watch it - too ugly - an interview with him and his "goddesses", who are helping him raise his twin sons. Why should anyone be pointing a camera his way? Why the attention, parading around his mental illness as some type of legitimate entertainment? This is disgusting, absolutely disgusting. My hopes and prayers are with the Estevez family right now. May they find the peace, stability and serenity they deserve. Celebrity/crack/cocaine/alcohol is a hell of a drug.

The TMZ interview is interesting. Early on he says that he doesn't know what he's done wrong--why he was fired. In an earlier post I had mentioned the vanity cards, and he mentions it in this interview:

"I get criticized publicly, those stupid vanity cards. I go who knows how long, eight years, and I fire back once and it's like 2000 to 1, and they're like "You're done." Wow, wow, I thought you guys were tougher than that."

He really doesn't seem to understand what a racist, nasty rant he gave publicly against his boss.

He later says about Chuck Lorre:
"I give him credit for creating something brilliant. But I don't give him any credit for making it go away. It's about ego and emotions and...I don't know what else. I can't speak for the man."

It is ironic that of all the places he interviewed, and he interviewed with just about everyone, it's TMZ's interview that is the most reasoned and sensible.

In the midst of Charlie's manic interview on Good Morning America, this part of the exchange stood out as a moment of profound truth that was passed over...

ROSSEN: Did you turn to alcohol and other substances because you were bored?

Mr. SHEEN: No. I did--I did that because they work.


People use drugs and alcohol because they work. The cruel irony is that self-medicating works, until it stops working. And when it stops working, you go spiraling out of control very quickly.

I've laughed at the various parodies of Charlie's crazy rants, but I really hope he gets help soon.
