Movement artists Jon Boogz and Lil Buck, who use dance to move people and improve the world, find alchemy with Meade’s perspective-changing art. The result is a powerful, mesmerizing reflection, a moving 2D art representation, of the state of today’s society.
On 17 November 2015 Charlie Sheen revealed to the media that he had been diagnosed 4 years earlier with being HIV positive. At the same time he admitted that although he was no longer taking any drugs he was still drinking alcohol. His health, physical and mentally, has been an issue for some time.
I am writing this post to preserve some of his quotes listed below. Despite his volatile reactions during some of the episodes in his life, he is still a brilliant actor in my book, remembered particularly for Platoon and Wall Street.
Quotes spoken by Charlie Sheen:
“I got tiger blood, man. My brain…fires in a way that is – I don’t know, maybe not from this particular terrestrial realm.”
“I am on a drug. It’s called Charlie Sheen. It’s not available because if you try it, you will die. Your face will melt off and your children will weep over your exploded body.”
“I’m tired of pretending like I’m not special. I’m tired of pretending like I’m not bitchin’, a total fricking rock star from Mars.”
“I’m bi-winning. I win here. I win there.”
“Most of the time — and this includes naps — I’m an F-18, bro. And I will destroy you in the air. I will deploy my ordinance to the ground.”
“I probably took more drugs than anyone could survive. I was banging seven-gram rocks, because that’s how I roll. I have one speed, I have one gear: Go.”
“I’ve got magic. I’ve got poetry in my fingertips.”
“You can’t process me with a normal brain.”
“I’ve seen clips of that whole meltdown, or meltforward as I called it, and it’s hard to watch… I wouldn’t have gone as far if I’d known that everything I said would be a t-shirt.”
