Hasn't Charlie's Sheen been tarnished yet?


There are always people one hears about even when one doesn't want to. Over the past months, I would include Muʿammar al-Qaḏḏāfī (Moammar Gadaffi or however his name might be spelled in the English transliteration) and Lindsay Lohan are right up there on the list.

But I have to tell you, the person who I think it stretching his [way more than he deserves] "15 minutes of fame" to breaking point is Charlie Sheen. He's insulted people, offended people, ruined his career (not to mention screwed up the careers, at least temporarily, of his co-stars on "Two and a Half Men") and been booed off the stage in his "One Man Show[off]". So why are GSN and Drew Carey giving him yet another opportunity to prove to the world what a self-centered, ego-maniacal, immature, self-entitled individual he is?

There are so many people in this world (and even just in this country) who are nice people, who are talented and intelligent, who can't seem to make a decent living and people are wasting their money showering this low-life with adulation (or, in some cases, just money -- after hearing of how he was booed off the stage in more than one locale, I was reminded of a verse my Mom taught us when we were kids -- "Cy and I went to the circus/Cy got hit with a rolling pin/We got even with the darned old circus/We bought two tickets and we didn't go in")

Ok, so I have some advice for you all out there in big-city land -- DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY ON CHARLIE SHEEN!!!! If you really want to get something for your money, how about supporting the arts by buying products created by artists -- check out Cafe Press, Zazzle, Printfection, and PrintPop . Buying from these sites is, IMHO, a much better use of your entertainment/arts dollar. Of course, the fact that I have shops on all these sites doesn't hurt. (If you are so moved, the links to my shops are on the side of this blog under the heading Compugraph Designs' Stores)
