How do you survive that?
Because I’m me. I’m different. I just have a different constitution, I have a different brain, I have a different heart… you know, I’ve got tiger blood, man.
A big thank you is owed super alpha Charlie Sheen for distracting us Americans from the debt sinkhole, multicult mass brain disease and Third Worldization of our country. Thanks bud!
What can be said about this guy? Is he a little crazy? Yep. A jerk? Yep. A drug addict? Probably. Alpha? You bet.
No one claimed alpha males had to be admirable (though personally I find much to admire about Sheen). The alpha male and the admirable man may often be the same, but not always. Women, saddled as their emotionally stunted gender is with an underdeveloped sense of justice and fairness, swoon for the alpha male, whether or not he is admirable. Sure, women will talk a big talk about the fine traits of admirable men, but when pussy comes to tingle, it’s double alpha all the way.
Sheen is an example of the highwire alpha extremis male who draws women into his orbit through intensity, unpredictability, charisma and rebelliousness. What he lacks in grace under pressure and amused mastery he makes up for with brazen candor and fearlessness, as well as a take-no-shit-from-anyone attitude. We could call this Tiger Blood Game.
There’s a lot to note in Sheen’s Tiger Blood Game that follows the tenets of this blog.
I’ve got magic and I’ve got poetry in my fingertips, and you know… this includes NAPS.
I’m an F-18, bro. I will destroy you in the air and I will deploy my ordnance to the ground.
I am on a drug. It’s called Charlie Sheen. It’s not available, because if you try it once, you will die.
Be interesting. If you’re going to strut, do it in a way that is funny and captivating.
Stuff just comes out. It’s sounds fun. It sounds different than all the garbage other people are spewing.
Demonstrating higher value via contrast with lower value people. This is similar to the technique of building comfort with a date by poking fun of a guy doing poorly on his date, or asking a girl “how many of these horndogs tonight slobbered all over you?”.
Are you apologizing for anything right now?
Well, I kind of set that one up nicely, didn’t I? Yeah, no, I’m… really, I’m upset about how something was interpreted. I feel terrible it, so I think we should just clear the air on that.
Excellent dodge. The alpha male never apologizes, particularly when he has nothing to apologize for and people are demanding the apology for their own status boosting reasons. (Really, is Chaim, or his shalom chorus, *that* upset that Sheen called him Chaim?)
Stay away from the crack… unless you can manage it socially.
Be a rebel, but be right. This statement may have raised the hackles of the anti-drug crusaders, but it’s true. Some people can handle it, some can’t. Charlie Sheen has money, fame and likely a genetic disposition that enables him to partake of the smiley snow without suffering too many adverse affects. I’ve known quite a few top-flight school MBA students who snorted on the regular, and they’re making money hand over fist.
Sheen did backpedal from this statement, which is understandable. The fuzz are probably on him, so he has to be circumspect now.
Did any of your celebrity friends [editor note: competitor alpha males] give you any advice?
Well, they didn’t give me any advice, and within that, there’s great advice… it was just love.
The alpha male never credits other alphas if it means a diminution in his own status. “Love” is a neutral term in this context which preserves Sheen’s alpha cred.
When you look back at the last time you used drugs, are you disgusted with yourself? Do you think ‘How could I have done that?’
No, no, I’m proud of what I’ve created. It was radical.
You’re proud of that party moment? [editor: classic shaming moment. Will Charlie bite?]
Of course, why wouldn’t I be? [editor: he does not. Bravo!]
Why would you be?
Because I expose people to magic, I expose them to something they’re never going to otherwise see in their normal, boring lives.
He’s bringing the viewer into his world. This is classic attraction phase material. It requires some chutzpah, to be sure, but pimps will tell you this type of “pot of gold at the end of the rainbow” game works wonders on women.
Your anger and your hate are coming off as erratic to people.
My passion, my passion.
The alpha male does not abide others’ frames. He reframes every interaction to his advantage.
Some people say you’re bipolar. That you’re on two ends of the extreme.
Wow, really? So what’s the cure? Medicine? Make me like them? Not gonna happen.
Notice that the question that got Sheen genuinely angry was the reference to his father disapproving of his lifestyle. That is because to a super alpha like Charlie…
only his dad is the greater alpha.
You may not like Sheen, but he’s right about one thing — the most important thing, in fact: He’s taking hot young pornstars to the islands for fuckathons while you’re a depressing bore going home to ingrate kids and a fat wife yelling at you to mow the lawn.
As Sheen might say, “I’m bi-winning.” Truth is, he is.
Well, until the Hollywood honchos string him up like they did Mel Gibson.
Funny story. I was having dinner with friends — mostly an assortment of West Coast SWPLs — and the Sheen subject came up. One guess which Sheen foible got them the most exorcised. Hint: it wasn’t the pornstars, the drugs, the braggadocio, the craziness or the poor parenting.
