I don't really see myself finishing it within the next week, but it's on Youtube and it's a good time killer for tonight's 4 1/2 straight hours of MMA.

BTW did you ever check out Fishing with John?

We are witnessing a true phenomenon boys and girls.

In one day we have gone from TIGER BLOOD RADIO to CHARLIE TV.

That's right. Charlie will be streaming his own tv show starting tonight in direct competition with strikeforce.


I don't know what I'm going to watch

I don't buy into that whole Charlie Sheen thing. It's another extremely overhyped situation that the media can exploit to get viewers and get everyone talking. Charlie is in debate with the people he works for, Charlie is doing this and that, and it's not anymore crazy or wild than any average person would be going through.

Media is overhyping/editing the footage so that it look like Charlie is some weird guy and blah blah blah, the media runs on this stuff, it's how they are still alive. It'll bullshit and is completely useless to go by cause they will edit and twist everything to go against a person to get hits, that's how it's always been.

Charlie doens't look anymore off or weird or anything than 90% of the people in the world, but it's sure twisted by the media to seem that way.

You know why Charlie is doing this TV show and all this? Cause he knows full well the media will buy into it and get all excited over it. You realize Charlie now selling millions of T shirts and stuff over this whole thing? Yeah, Charlie is using the media's ridiculous hyping over everyday business situations to make lots of money.

Good for him.

Except he's not a train wreck. He's actually very smart in this. You go watch his TV show, you think you're watching someone acting out/spouting crazy ideas, cause that's what the media sure wants you to believe, otherwise who would care? If no one cares, they can't squeeze money out of it, so they make you care.

In reality, he's doing a TV show cause that gets him more money, more people buy into the situation, more people will buy his Charlie Sheen T shirts that he's currently selling and all the other merchandise over this whole thing (I just saw an hour TV thing on the whole situation, where it shows him and his buddies talking about how to squeeze more sales out of people over it all).

He's making tons of cash simply because he knows very well people will tune in to his whole thing cause the media will force you to via making it seem a thousand times worse than it actually is.

I personally think it's funny, people are like "aw, crazy Charlie!" and Charlie's saying "yeah, I'm crazy! keep giving me attention/following the situation so I can get more money out of this whole thing".

I don't know how anyone can take um-bridge with Sheen he owes us. Anyone ever try watching 2 1/2 men...horrible dull and unfunny but give me 21 minutes of Sheen talking, thought provoking, progressive, and hilarious.

It's the best work Sheen's ever done.

as for Scrubs... it has it's highs and lows if you don't like the first season it doesn't really get "better" or "worse".

In a way you're right. EVERYONE is jumping in to make what they can. And it is really just an employment dispute. But the way and speed it is unfolding is on a scale we have never seen. While you're right that Charlie is orchestrating and manipulating the whole thing for every penny he can, he is not in control of himself and this will not end well for him.
