MEL FESSES UP

MALIBU, Calif. -- Aussie actor/movie director Mel Gibson made another emotional plea for forgiveness from the world's Jewish community yesterday for comments that have been termed anti-semitic.

The troubled hunk showed up at a hastily-called press conference in something resembling goats' horns or the devil's, saying he continues to feel incredible remorse and guilt for his fire-laden words.

Gibson was pulled over for driving while under the influence of alcohol and the police report described him as being drunk and making several scathing remarks against Jews.

Yesterday, the star of several blockbuster movies continued his campaign to keep his acting/directing career on track, insisting he did not hate Jews and that he has a drinking problem.

However, the Jewish community -- which has said this week Gibson needs to go beyond apologies and addiction counselling to make amends -- reacted to Gibson's latest appeals with apathy and little comment.


Gibson was later seen outside a bar. His publicist could not be reached for comment.

    So THAT'S what it is...being in Sunny Cali instead of Down Under, where he belongs!

    I don't care about this stuff...I've liked him ever since Mad Max and the Thunderdome.

    He's brilliant.

  10. Carmenzta: Glad you enjoyed it!

    Angel:
    No, I didn't post the wrong pictures, at least not with my warped mind. Just a joke.

    What didn't you get?

    Cherry:
    Sorry to ruin your break, but you'll have to get your caffeine (or other) fix somewhere else.

    I deleted the blog. Don't think it went over rip-roaringly well in some quarters.

    I'm considering putting them on EBay though, so watch for them there.

  11. What in hell do those pictures have to do with Mel F'n Gibson?

    Hey Mel what's that behind you?
    Your career!

    Luckily for Mad Mel there aren't any powerful Jewish businessmen in Hollywood.
    I blame his Holocaust denyin' Daddy for filling his little mullet with all of those crazy ideas.

    Here is my newsclip ala the Chris Farley Show

    Do you remember when Mel portrayed Missta Chrrisstian in Mutiny on the Bounty....

    remember when he told Captain Bligh "I AM IN HELL SIR!"..

    remember that...

    that was awesome.

    Yeesh.

    Hello.

    Read the accompanying text. These animals have nothing at all to do with Mel or Jews.

    Save for these are my pix and I'm trying to market myself as a freelance photographer (not);

    Save for the big beast has horns as described in the text;

    Save for the first pic was one hell of a closeup and I imagined him as standing in front of mics;

    Save for the last pic of the same beast had him apparently passed out, obstensibly after drinking;

    Save for the baboons served to represent an unimpressed Jewish community (coulda been any animals just hanging around).

    My pictorial essay appears to have flopped. But I agree, Mel's in Hell, Sir!

  19. I'd like to leave you with a song that has been stuck in my head all week. I actually prefer the Sid Vicious version with..today..I killed a cat!
    anyway enjoy...

    And now, the end is here
    And so I face the final curtain
    My friend, I'll say it clear
    I'll state my case, of which I'm certain
    I've lived a life that's full
    I traveled each and ev'ry highway
    And more, much more than this, I did it my way

    Regrets, I've had a few
    But then again, too few to mention
    I did what I had to do and saw it through without exemption
    I planned each charted course, each careful step along the byway
    And more, much more than this, I did it my way

    Yes, there were times, I'm sure you knew
    When I bit off more than I could chew
    But through it all, when there was doubt
    I ate it up and spit it out
    I faced it all and I stood tall and did it my way

    I've loved, I've laughed and cried
    I've had my fill, my share of losing
    And now, as tears subside, I find it all so amusing
    To think I did all that
    And may I say, not in a shy way,
    "Oh, no, oh, no, not me, I did it my way"

    For what is a man, what has he got?
    If not himself, then he has naught
    To say the things he truly feels and not the words of one who kneels
    The record shows I took the blows and did it my way!
