Quote of the Day: Platoon

Chris Taylor: Day by day, I struggle to maintain not only my strength but my sanity. It’s all a blur. I have no energy to write. I don’t know what’s right and what’s wrong anymore. The morale of the men is low. A civil war in the platoon. Half the men with Elias, half with Barnes. There’s a lot of suspicion and hate. I can’t believe we’re fighting each other when we should be fighting them.

Happy 70th Birthday to director, Oliver Stone!!

This Week’s News – Week Ending 5/20/11 – Arnold/Ralph Macchio/Rick Springfield/Star Tours/Charlie Sheen/1982 Tylenol Scare/R.I.P. Macho Man

Here is a list of news stories, this week, that relate to ’80s figures or stories:

Arnold Has a Love Child With Housekeeper

  “I lift things up and put them in.” Or something like that.

Ralph Macchio “kicked” off of Dancing With the Stars

Kirstie Alley did what Cobra Kai could not. she defeated The Karate Kid!

Star Tours 2 Opens

Star Tours 2 officially opens today along with this years Star Wars Weekends at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. It sounds incredible. I look forward to going on the ride when I head down there.

Rick Springfield arrest statements released

When Rick Springfield was arrested for DUI earlier this month, he apparently threatened the deputy and the deputy’s family.

Charlie Sheen replaced by Ashton Kutcher

It’s official. That crappy (even though Ducky’s in it) show is staying on the air. I think it would have been funny if they hired Ted McGinley instead.

Jeff Conaway in a coma

Sadly, it is not shocking news that the Grease and Taxi star is in a coma after an overdose and possible suicide attempt

Unabomber a suspect in 1982 Tylenol poisoning

Remember that big scare in 1982 with the Tylenol being laced with cyanide? Well, the Unabomber is a suspect. But, he’s such a upright citizen!

And this just came in while I was typing this article!

“Macho Man” Randy Savage died in a car accident this morning at the age of 58

He was one of my favorite wrestlers of the ’80s. I will write a tribute to him for next week.

Carlos Estevez (a.k.a. Charlie Sheen) has gone off the rails on a “Crazy Train”

Charlie Sheen is showing Lindsay Lohan how it’s done! Remember the good old days when Sheen was in some of our favorite movies such as Red Dawn, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, Platoon, Wall Street, Eight Men Out, Young Guns, and Major League? Sure, he has always been troubled. But he seems to be going down at an accelerated rate now.
The new round of events seemed to have started on Christmas 2009 when Sheen assaulted his wife Brooke Mueller. Then around 2 a.m. on Oct. 26, Sheen was removed by police from his suite at the Plaza Hotel, which had suffered a reported $7,000 worth of damage. NYPD sources told reporters that he was found naked, and admitted to having been drinking and taking cocaine. He was also with a prostitute/porn star that locked herself in the bathroom for her own safety.

On January 27, 2011, Sheen was taken to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center by paramedics. Sheen’s representative said the actor was suffering from “severe abdominal pains”. The next day, Sheen began undergoing a substance rehabilitation program in his home and CBS announced that Two and a Half Men would go into hiatus. The network subsequently announced that the season then underway and due to film its last four episodes was canceled after Sheen made offensive comments about the creator and lead writer of Two and a Half Men, Chuck Lorre, on the February 24 edition of a radio broadcast hosted by Alex Jones.

Sheen is continuing his rants on the news/talkshow circuit. He will be featured on 20/20 tonight. He has just been sounding totally insane.

So, my question is “What do you think?” Do you feel sorry for him? Do you still like him? Are there any fans of his show? It is the highest rated comedy. Personally, I don’t know why. I used to have it on ‘Season Pass’, but it got sickening and tired. Yeah, I get get it…Charlie’s a pig, Alan’s a loser, Jake is an idiot and is always hungry, and Charlie’s and Alan’s mother is a manipulative nympho. It’s the same thing week in and week out.
Are you tired of Charlie Sheen now?
