I know, but I just got around to actually watching the interview excerpt.
I gotta say this; I agree with most of the things that he said, even when he invoked Yoda ("The Nike slogan isn't, 'Just go out there and try.'")
I have a similar outlook on life, even if I do believe that my brain is of this terrestrial realm. My drugs of choice ore nicotine and caffiene, sometimes alcohol.
When Sheen states that he simply blinked his eyes and chose to never ingest drugs again, I sort of believe him, as I have witnessed this behavior (on a less intense level, though no less impressive) when my three-pack of cigarettes a day smoker of a grandfather quit - cold turkey, because the doctor told him that he would not perform surgery unless he did. So, he did. He never smoked again for the rest of his life.
Sheen may be considered intense, self-serving, unnerving, narcissistic, and detached, but I beleive that he is lucid, intelligent and fully in control of his faculties. When he states that he has tiger blood in his veins, I equate that to a strong sense of self-confidence in his abilities and attributes.
There is a side of me that still, to this day, believes that I am self-aware enough to be able to accurately assess my own strengths and weaknesses and play to them. I would never deign to say that I have the blood of tigers, but I am self-confident enough in my own abilities, and have experiences with which to back up any claims that I would make about them.
I believe that it is others that make more of Sheen's publicity than Sheen, himself. I believe that Sheen is, simply, telling folks, "Hey, this is my life, and I'll live it how I see fit. As long as I am hurting no one else, and I am living within society's laws, then let me live it."
In the end, I actualy empathize with the guy. Does that make me weird, strange or both?
