I Am Charlie, I'm A Bore

Paris Hilton, Lindsay Lohan, Mel Gibson, Tom Cruise, Colin Farrel...you know the list, it goes on and on. The list of Hollywood hick-ups who not content to meltdown behind closed doors have to drag each and every detail out into the light of day and share it with all of us. Well, add Charlie Sheen to that luckless and lascivious list of losers. In the past few days he's been on every major media soapbox complaining abut how he's been treated and how he's misunderstood. Last night he spent an hour on ABC's 20/20 "in his own words". Charlie, you should have stuck to the script.

"I have a highly evolved brain".

You know I never did like that song by Helen Reddy in the 70s "I Am Woman". But I have to say the melody really leant itself well to a parody of Hollywood's latest flame-out, Charlie Sheen. Although I never thought I'd hear myself say this, my sincerest apologies to Helen Reddy. And now if you're ready (a little play on words there), let's begin...

I'm a train wreck hear me roar
Like La-Lohan I'm a bore
I'm on a drug. It is called Charlie Sheen
And I keep coming back for more
And I've been down there on the floor
Hurling internal organs like my spleen

Chorus
Oh no I'm not wise
But it's dumbness that's ingrained
Yes, I've paid the price
But look how I'm so lame
If I have to, I can ingest anything
I'm a God
I'm unprincipled
I'm a train wreck

I'm a train wreck watch me speed
'Cause it only serves my selfish needs
I'm a wasted, sotten, rotten kinda guy
And I'm accused of being a goner
Not a nice guy any longer
But with my money there's nothing I can't buy

chorus
I'm a train wreck, watch me go
See me throwing up on my toes
As I spread my lovin' legs for all to see
Yes for the ladies I still go
With a long, long... well, you know
And still I'm having trouble when I pee

Oh yes I am wasted
And I'm in a lot of pain
Yes, I've paid the price
But look how much I've fame
If I have to I can ingest anything
I'm a God
I'm an idiot
I am Charlie
Hear me.... zzzzzzzz

*Slowly rises from her seat and commences a one woman standing ovation* Bravo Noname! That was amazing. I am having so much fun watching this spectacle. That's probably wrong but I cannot look away.
nonamedufus said…
cardiogirl. Until now I couldn't bring myself to watch it. But that 20/20 piece last night was indescribable. And I just had to hang on to see what the next outlandish thing he'd say would be.
Nicky said…
I feel bad for his family. I'm cringing every time he opens his mouth, I can only imagine how they react! Hopefully, he'll find himself a new publicist who will shut him up soon!
nonamedufus said…
Nicky: I don't think anyone's gonna shut him up. I've said before his own worst enemy isn't drugs, alcohol or porn stars. It's his two feet...lodged firmly in his mouth.
Boom Boom Larew said…
Just when I thought he couldn't become any more outrageous... the Academy Award for Bat Shit Craziest Ass goes to Charlie Sheen!
nonamedufus said…
Boom Boom: An award? Shit, don't encourage him!
laughingmom said…
Loved the song - so true - you really should put an audio clip on the site so that we can enjoy it at its best!
Rachele said…
I can't stand to watch it. If the press would leave it alone he wouldn't have a soapbox to stand on and spew this nonsense. Let's all just ignore him and hope he goes away.
nonamedufus said…
laughingmom: But then I'd have to listen to Helen Reddy and i don't know if I'm up for that.
nonamedufus said…
Rachele: You got it in one. Charlie may be the train but the media's the conductor (heavy, eh?) steering as best they can to derail this moron. Great ratings, though!
junebug said…
My favorite line was "see me throwing up on my toes". Love it!

Oh, Christmas came early for me last night when he started tweeting. He is the present that keeps on giving.
Quirkyloon said…
This was brilliant!

"Like La-Lohan, I'm a bore"

*SNORT*

I love it! LMBO!
Oh, bravo, Dufus! That was wonderful! And hysterical.

Most gorgeous line: "And I've been down there on the floor
Hurling internal organs like my spleen" -- Beautiful!
Jenn Thorson said…
Ah, dear Dufus, only you could do a proper song parody for this very specific situation. I salute you!
nonamedufus said…
junebug: Those tweets will be pearls...not. Ha, ha.
nonamedufus said…
Quirks: What the hell makes these people think they're so important and we actually care what they think? He's a rock star from Mars alright.
nonamedufus said…
Margaret: Sheen, spleen. You work with what you got. Glad you enjoyed it.
nonamedufus said…
Jenn: Shucks, now my head's getting all big. Next I'll be saying things like "I'm on a drug. It's called nonamedufus".
Travis said…
I have absolutely no idea what the original song sounded like. However, I love your version. Come on by my place, I pitched him a movie idea.

nonamedufus said…
Travis: The song really sucked. Kinda like Charlie Sheen. I guess they were kinda made for each other.
Christy said…
Wow. Well written! Great post.
injaynesworld said…
Put Courtney Love in drag and that has Grammy written all over it! Wait a minute, Courtney Love and drag is kind of redundant, isn't it.

Bravo!
nonamedufus said…
Christy: Wow, thanks!
nonamedufus said…
injaynesworld: I guess it would be but I like what you're going for.
This is awesome. No. This is beyond awesome.

Radical! ^_^

I need to go find the Karaoke version of the song so I can sing to the melody with your lyrics.
nonamedufus said…
AofA: I'm glad you enjoyed it. I can't help but think I'll soon be doing a parody of "The End" by the Doors.
Jen said…
I am ashamed to admit that I have loved every minute of this, and your song is awesome (Winning!). But, I woke up this morning and though I might have had enough, and then his kids got taken away and my whole day was out of whack because I was late getting in the shower and now I just want him to schedule some of these episodes. I haven't even started following his tweets....though, of course, I will.
HumorSmith said…
Well played my friend, well played. Maybe if he gets a Charlie Horse he'll ride off to roundup rehab.
nonamedufus said…
Jenn: It has been fascinating but let' face it we all have better things to do in our own lives than worry about when Charlie Sheen's gonna self-implode. Although, you might want to set some time aside this Friday!
nonamedufus said…
HuorSmith: On the contrary, I think he's headed for that big randy hooker rodeo in the sky.
Jane Gassner said…
Really, we ought to pay him for all the grist he's giving our mills....
nonamedufus said…
Jane: Oh, yeah, like he needs more than the fortune he's (was) making now.
Linda said…
I have been amazed at the things I've heard him say in the interviews. I had no idea about any of this until a few days ago, and am one of the few who have never seen his show. I hope things turn around for him, but only people who want to change, can change.
nonamedufus said…
Linda: Personally, I found his show quite funny. But now that his private life is playing out in public as though it were an extension of his sitcom I find it all too weird. It's simply not as funny.
00dozo said…
I saw a 30-second preview for the interview last night and that's about all I wanted to see of Charlie.

Great post - fun lyrics! Um, but the pic almost looks like a wasted Barry Manilow (Sorry Barry in case you are reading this).

;-)
Lauren said…
Loved your version of the song. I'll never be able to listen to I Am Woman again.
meleah rebeccah said…
I am LOVING your revised version of this song! Ahahhahahahahahahahhahahah!

I cringe every time Charlie Sheen opens his mouth - but you just can't make this up even if you wanted to!
nonamedufus said…
00dozo: I watched the whole thing. My jaw's sore today from hitting the floor so many times last night.
nonamedufus said…
Lauren: This is the only way I CAN listen to this song. I don't know what made me pick it.
nonamedufus said…
meleah rebeccah: We can't make this stuff up...but he sure seems to be able to!
Ferd said…
Ha!
That song was really great!
I hope Charlie gets to hear it someday! :-)
I'm starting a pool: What day do you think Charlie will be found dead on his bedroom floor?

Good song, Dufus.
nonamedufus said…
Ferd: He'd never sit still long enough to listen. He has one gear - "go".
nonamedufus said…
MikeWJ: I'm pulling for Friday. The sooner the better.
brookeamanda said…
Sadly, I had to close the night of the 20/20 interview and I missed it! But I LOVE your song parady of the whole situation. Bravo!
nonamedufus said…
brookeamanda: You know I find I don't really want to watch this stuff. But then a part of me just can't look away. I don't want to miss the train when it goes off the track, you know?
Bluezy said…
I think that anyone who follows into this paparazzi tv show circus is a bore. I decided to watch a blog video on him speaking with Howard Stern. He seems like a contemporary male with lots of money and does what he wants to. I can show you 25 Charlies that don't have money just up the road at the bar. Nobody wants to put them on the front page.
Charlie said he has Adonis DNA...testosterone and money...can make you into what ever the eff you want. He will burn out and possibly look worse. But he has his two goddesses to take care of him.
nonamedufus said…
Bluezy: So you think his money and profile should make this interesting to us? Or at least to the slavering ratings-hungry media? He's gone from a sitcom to a "reality" show. At least the sitcom was funny.
Jamie said…
I'm actually thankful for guys like Charlie Sheen. I look like a pearl by way of comparison...

Most excellent lyrical composition, dufus.
nonamedufus said…
Jamie: You've got a good point there. Ha, ha.
Linda Medrano said…
Nicely done. I can't watch the man self-destruct, but you should be writing songs for Weird Al Yankovich!
nonamedufus said…
Linda: Ha, ha...he's done so many great parodies. I'm glad you liked the song. I hope it's the last Sheen post I do. He's such an ass.
Bluezy said…
I think that all the poop on any celebrity seems to be the thang that keeps them watching. I have to turn the effing channel, but somehow it is like a Svengali sensationalism.
It is unfortunate that any of us have to watch it. I see a lot of Lohan in myself. 80-90's partying...I think that really ruins the makeup. Thank goodness it was just my parents that reamed me for it and not the world. I personally think the if then want to get down and dirty with the personal and I commented this on the Hoff video the daughter did). Catch him taking a crap and we will all debate his grunting techniques and please tell us does his poop smell...
nonamedufus said…
Bluezy: It's their "star" quotient that is responsible for the "TMZ/ET" interest. I noticed the same thing when Michael Jackson died. You're right. You've got to turn the channel. After getting a glimpse, I really don't want to know what these people are like in real life.
I'm starting a pool: What day do you think Charlie will be found dead on his bedroom floor?

Good song, Dufus.

My Back Pages - November

I read five books last month bringing my year to date total to 61, well past the 50 I estimated at the beginning of the year. And I've yet to get through December.

The month started out with The Nix, the debut novel by Nathan Hill which has been receiving a lot off positive reviews. In it Hill flips back and fourth from the 1968 Chicago protests and 2011 in a desperate search for the truth behind why his mother abandoned him at an early age. In between Hill takes on politics, the media and addiction as well as other aspects of society. It's a well-spun tale and I quite enjoyed reading it.

Next up was the auto-biographical I Am Brian Wilson of Beach Boys fame. This was somewhat of a scattered affair but an interesting read nonetheless. Wilson - or his ghostwriter - however is no Hemingway.

Then it was on to one of my favourite authors, Ian Rankin and his latest tale of now retired Inspector John Rebus, Rather Be The Devil. I never tire of these stories and this is the 21st in …

Traveling Along Singing A Song

Pete and Paulie were strolling along one day. The sun was bright, the air was cool, the birds chirped crazily in the trees and the squirrels  munched merrily on their nuts. Well not their nuts exactly. Nuts they found on the ground and in the gardens in the park.

Paulie felt so good he began to whistle. It wasn't any tune in particular, just one of those annoyingly tuneless whistles that wandered all over the place. Pete looked at Paulie and he squiggled up his nose and he said "What the hell is that?" Paulie replied "Oh nothing in particular. I'm just happy." "But you're not even whistling a tune" said Pete. Paulie replied "If you're so wise I'd like to see you do better, Pete."

Pete went silent for a moment and seemed to mumble to himself for a moment or two. Then he cleared his throat with a little cough, he opened his mouth and he began to sing.
