Charlie Sheen 11 Minute Internet Broadcast: Drinking, Ranting, Sweating


Looking gaunt and sounding crazier than ever, Charlie Sheen is back on the internet. He went live on UStream at 10:07pm EST. “Are you recording this?” asked his first caller, who I think is Bob Maron, one of his sycophants. Sheen said he’s going to reach out to Jeff Bezos, head of He wants him to publish his memoir, “Apocalypse Me: The Jaws of Life.” He wants the Book on Kindle to save trees. Sheen rants that people should “marry a tree.” “Marriage didn’t work for me, so marry a tree.” He’s upset about people calling in and interrupting him. And helicopters buzzing over head. “Notice how hell is in the word helicopter?” Basically, it’s the sad spiral down to the bottom of a man no one cares enough about to stop him from completely imploding. As I write this, the broadcast has now stopped. So maybe someone in that house did care enough to pull the plug.
