Tough one, Martin Sheen or Charlie Sheen. I'm going to have to side with Tom Berringe and Willam Defoe.

You haven't lived until you've had a robot shart in your ear and followed along in the live setlist thread while it happens. 
Mister Charlie told you so.

fuck yeah.

Back in the days high school I had an obsession with anything Vietnam War. I think it was partly because of the report I had to do talking about Neil Young's song Ohio. Anyways, I've seen my far share of Vietnam movies and I gotta say that Platoon has it all. It has the perfect amount of dirty, rotten Vietnam warfare.

I love the smell of napalm in the morning.

Yeah, Dr. Coppola wins again.
