I think this is absolutely hilarious and the best and biggest celebrity media / publicity stunt EVER.
Charlie Sheen Quote Compilation "I'm a freaking rock star from Mars. I got magic on my fingertips. Winning, every second. I got Tiger Blood man. Practice. Drug tests don't lie. Cocaine. Banging rocks, that's how I roll! 3 mil/episode, I'm underpaid. We just win. I'm not bi polar, I am Bi-winning. Can't process it, losers. shut up. I' m an F18 BRO. WINNING! Duh.
I have to admit, it is SOOOO refreshing to have someone have the BALLS to be real, authentic and be totally transparent instead of just being a walking & talking zombie like the majority of the population.
Personally I am so SICK of the proper 'canned & conservative conversations' that pollutes the media, especially on Facebook & Twitter updates...come on now, get a life people, do I really care your eating a sandwich right now?!
Most people sound like freaking robots reading (or typing) a script and hiding what they really want to say or feel because its not socially "acceptable content".
Recently I have made a conscious effort to say exactly whats on my mind and what I am doing / feeling through my blog & social media channels, and guess what?
People seem to absolutely LOVE IT! (and to be honest, its such a relief to be able to just be REAL and candid without worrying about any 'proper' social conduct that is so lame, boring and utterly pointless.
Since I have starting expressing and sharing this new communication initiative, I can not tell you how many people have private messaged me on Facebook saying things like; "Quinton, I have just been LOVING your status updates, they're really inspiring and fun to follow & cool to hear how your living your life, keep it up"
Seriously, people I don't even know message me saying "hey bro, you sound like a cool guy having a blast, hope we can connect & meet up sometime. Keep rockin' out"
Why am I saying this now?
No, not to brag, but to give YOU as an individual an open invitation to break the barriers of the social / political norms and express your REAL authentic self the way your WANT not how you think you should.
Start a blog, post interesting controversial status updates. Do whatever the F you want, just don't be a robot like the masses.
One of the best (and highest paid) copy writers I know says that the masses are
BORED OUT OF THEIR MINDS looking for someone to make them feel alive.
Look at marketing rockstars like Frank Kern who talks about smoking weed, being a surf bum and a boozer to his readers...and now the guy is the biggest "Guru" of online biz development on the planet and people buy his stuff cause they like and can relate to him...
Also, my first real business mentor used to start every coaching call (that was packed with 1000's of people on the line) with the disclaimer stating 'if I say something that offends you...don't worry, you will get over it".
Personally, I have always gravitated to the so called "rebel rock star' persona's.
I loved the college basketball team the Fab 5 from Michigan Wolverines who trash talked and started the baggy shorts and bald head look. I idolized Dennis Rodman for his talent on and off the court antics, I've always loved rockstar's that promote the alternative rock n roll lifestyles that movie star's rock out like the James Bond's, Kurt Cobain, Jim Morrison, Jimmy Hendrix, Hank Moody's & Vincent Chases' of the world, and guess what?
So does everyone else...
Its no coincidence that Charlie Sheen got over 1 million new Twitter Followers in just 24h after one unusual interview.
Its because people are HUNGRY for someone to make them feel SOMETHING...ANYTHING, other than the same old same old boring re packaged B.S. from some lame ass news broadcaster...
If you think Charlie Sheen is not a genius who is consciously and creatively building his brand then you are very mistaken my friend...
Trust me, he knows EXACTLY what he is doing and he is making a FORTUNE from it ;-)
His shenanigans inspired me to change my voice message to
"Hello, this is Quinton's cell phone, sorry I can't answer your call, but I am out "WINNING" leave a message and I will call you back asap."
Enjoy your new found freedom of speech and remember, if I say something that offends you...you'll get over it ;)
So with that out of the way, I'm off to drink some Tiger Blood & party like a rock star from Mars...
P.S. oh ya, I actually just ordered his shirt with 'WINNING' on it, and yes, he makes $ from that product sale...see what I mean? Genius marketing / branding...
I can't wait to get it in the mail lol!
All My Best,
Mr. Quinton 'Charlie' Carlin ;-)
