true colors

MALIBU, Calif., July 29 — The film star and director Mel Gibson apologized Saturday for belligerent behavior and for saying what he called "despicable" things that he does "not believe to be true" when he was arrested here on a drunken-driving charge early Friday.

But Mr. Gibson, in a statement, stopped short of addressing claims that he made virulently anti-Semitic remarks to an arresting officer, as described on a Web site that posted several pages of the sheriff's report.

The sheriff's report, carried on TMZ.com, a Web site owned by Time Warner, said Mr. Gibson had demanded to know if the officer, James Mee, was a Jew. During an obscenity-laced tirade, according to the report, Mr. Gibson also said "the Jews are responsible for all the wars in the world."

Damn, Mel. Don't you have a better explanation for driving under the influence instead of anti-Semitic scapegoating? I thought you sublimated all your Jewish hatred in Passion of the Christ? Perhaps you need to make a sequel.

Also, I wonder why the cop didn't tell Gibson to "stay outta Malibu, deadbeat!" Isn't that standard practice?


I guess you could say this is the "Original Pime". I stopped blogging here regularly in May 2008 (if you don't count the B-Sides diversion - yes it gets confusing) when I joined the Tumblr revolution. Going forward bravely into 2009, this site will serve to house any large image work I produce.

Peace out.
