Getting Charlie Sheen on Dreamland Tonight

If Charlie Sheen can keep himself alive, out of jail, and off the TSA’s no-fly list for the next few weeks, it looks as though he’ll be paying Michigan a visit. According to a reports coming out this weekend, Sheen will be touring with his live show, entitled “My Violent Torpedo of Truth” in early April, and the only two stops will be in Chicago and Detroit. The Detroit show will be on April 2, at the Fox Theater. Having been subjected to about half an hour of his online talk show a few days ago, I doubt that I’ll be attending, but I would like to take this opportunity to offer Mr. Sheen the experience of being interviewed by a puppet, should he feel like stopping by Ypsilanti… Stay tuned for more… I plan on putting on even more pressure this time than I did with DeNiro… Seriously, if anyone would be up for being interviewed by a puppet, it would be Charlie Sheen, right?

    ANONYMOUS to release emails and documents which the collective hopes will expose Bank of America as perpetuators of fraud. The release should occur tomorrow morning via Anonleaks.ch, where last month the collective posted emails from hacked security company HBGary.

    Mark, I heard that this thing sold out in “record time”. He therefore should be in a great mood when you put on the pressure :)

    You need to put video up of your puppet, his lips red with tiger blood, as battle footage from Vietnam is projected behind him, begging the wizard for guidance. There is no way that he could say no.

    Your puppet should do a theatrical one-man version of a 2.5 Men script. I’d suggest the one with sexual innuendo.

    Sheen and Palin need to mate for the future of mankind. I’m afraid of what might happen to this world if they do not create some kind of living entity to guide us.

    I’m glad to see that you are willing be tolerant and forgiving of men who beat women. It’s about time! Maybe you could dress puppet Mark in drag and provoke him to give you a good old fashioned bitch slapping. That would be AWESOME! All in good fun, of course.

    To be honest, I don’t know a lot about Sheen’s history. I don’t watch TV at home, so I’ve never seen his show, or haven’t seen Entertainment Tonight in at least a decade. I do, however, know that a woman he paid for sex called the cops after locking herself in a closet or something, terrified of him. (Some pop culture stuff you can’t escape from.) I’m not aware of him actually having hit her, though. Regardless, however, we can agree that he’s not a good person. And, yeah, I guess I’d interview him even though that’s the case. I wouldn’t, however, encourage him to torment anyone else, male or female, and I wouldn’t make light of his past actions.

    First Mark wanted to have Robert DeNiro take him to a strip club. Now Mark wants to be around Charlie Sheen. It sounds like Mark simply wants to be near people who will help him hang out with strippers and porn stars.

    You go Mark! We’re behind you! Live the dream!

    I agree. You should not interview anyone who has hurt another human being. Nothing can be learned from them. People, as Jesus taught us, are not capable of changing. There should be no forgiveness, only scorn.

    Here’s a summary of Sheen’s history with his wives and goddesses along with a little analysis of society’s response:

    Lots of people do bad shit. I’m I’m not mistaken both the actor Charles S. Dutton and boxing promoter Don King have actually killed people, and yet they continue to work, be interviewed, etc. Granted, domestic violence is terrible, but is anyone accused of such automatically off limits? Is there nothing to be gained from talking to them? You act as though Mark would be high-fiving the guy as he retells his wife-beating highlights, and I very seriously doubt that’s what would happen if an interview were to take place. I’m not trying to be combative, and I appreciate your point of view on this, but I think that it’s a slippery slope when you start telling people who they can and can’t talk with.

    I would definitely pay more than $8 for a ticket to see Mark high-five wife-beaters for an hour.

    OK…. Here’s an idea. How about I give up on Sheen and focus on George Clooney. He’s in town for the next few days, and, from what I understand, he’s never beaten, killed or threatened anyone. And I won’t offer to take him to the strip club. We’ll do the interview at a homeless encampment. Will that work for everyone?

    K2,

    It’s also a slippery slope when we ignore serious crimes and abuse because we’re obsessed with the spectacle of celebrity. Sheen’s bringing his torpedo to our region’s most prestigious theater (tickets start at $35). He’s not coming to talk about acting method, and he’s not coming to talk about a past of abuse that he’s overcome . He’s coming to showcase and promote his thriving violent ego.

    He’s not cute and harmless. He’s a violent abuser. It’s one thing to talk to abusers and challenge them on their behavior (current or past). But we don’t need to give them the tacit approval of a stage to promote themselves. (As you can see, for me, this is more about the FOX and less about the Dreamland.)

    The guy put a knife to a woman’s throat and goes on tour.

    Mark, will you give us your word that you’ll limit your discussion to his children’s clothing line?

    Apparently Mark has a penchant for interviewing domestic abusers:

    From TMZ.

    Spies in the audience tell TMZ the crowd went insane when Sheen first walked on to the stage and instantly began chanting, “F**K DETROIT.”
