Friday LinkFrogging - 5/31/13
Sometimes you just have to take a step back and celebrate/mourn those who have taken a screeching two wheel turn around the bend and probably won't ever come back to the land of normal.

Our patron sinner, Hunter S. Thompson, did it.  He did it so well and so convincingly that the bar is higher than anyone can ever hope to reach.

Then there's Keith Richards.  Keef, the legendary Rolling Stones guitar player, makes no bones about his love of drink and drugs.  They've kept him upright and creative for nearly 50 years so who am I to judge.

Of course, no conversation about the highly-wired would be complete without a discussion of the warlock himself, Charlie Sheen. His "winning" streak may be over, but never count the man out.  Just this week it was announced that he would be billed as Carlos Estevez in Machete Kills later this year.  It takes a special kind of brilliant to be crazy in two languages.

And then there's the newest member of the club and this week's cheesecake.

Please say hello to Amanda Bynes.

Ms. Bynes appeared on our radar in such kiddie fare as All That, Big Fat Liar, What a Girl Wants, The Amanda Show and What I Like About You.

When What I Like About You ended its improbable run, Ms. Bynes got behind the wheel of her car and booked for crazy town and never looked back.  Of course, she was arrested for DUI and side-swiping a police car on her trip, but still.

Since then Ms. Bynes has become far more famous for her erratic behavior than she ever was for her acting.  She's retired and then unretired.  She's Twitter-stalked Drake.  And just last week she was arrested for possession and throwing a bong out of a 36 story NYC apartment window.

Did I mention she accused the cops of sexual harassment during her arrest.

And then, just this morning, it was reported that Ms. Bynes was spotted in Buffalo while adamantly tweeting she wasn't in Buffalo.

Shine on you crazy diamond.

Let's hit the links.
