Charlie SheenWhile you may feel some Charlie Sheen fatigue, the former 'Two and a Half Men' star isn't running out of steam just yet.

According to TMZ, Sheen's live show -- he's going the route of Conan O'Brien -- sold out in 18 minutes. Yes, 18 minutes, a TicketMaster record.

Sheen announced on his official site that the $1 from every ticket sale will go to help those in Japan who have been affected by the earthquake and resulting tsunamis. The actor is also selling T-shirts adorned with the phrase "Duh, winning."

In other Sheen news, '30 Rock' star Alec Baldwin took to his Huffington Post blog to tell the troubled actor that he "can't win" in his fight with the studios. However, he did offer this advice: "But you know what you should do? Take a nap. Get a shower. Call Chuck. Go on Letterman and make an apology."

On March 20, TLC plans to air a special about the actor.

Rap A Porn, Porn Rapper, Rap A Porn, X Slapper…........Charlie Sheen needs to do what he does best, promote Porn. There is even a new rapper on the WEB called Porn Rapper who claims Charlie inspired his latest work. This artist known as Porn Rapper is even calling Rap A Porn a new music genre. I have no doubt that Charlie has given a big boost to the Porn Industry and will become a iconoclast mogul in it’s future. I suggest the “My Violent Torpedo of Truth/Defeat is Not an Option Show” tour DEBUT this title tract called X Slapper. Party ON with Tiger Blood!
..............So If Your Pounding On The Street, Girl Better Watch Your Feet, Before Your Drawn To The Beat, Filmed A Special Treat, Your Hollywood Meat, And Catch The Body Heat Of The X Slapper.........
