WOW, IT’S A FULL-COURT BARKING

Or, MAD ABOUT MEL

DEFAMER offers an interesting Monday Mel Round-up
(“SHORT ENDS: WRAPPING UP MAD MEL MONDAY“).

Square-Black.gif Let’s see — all from DEFAMER — mad about Mel:

(01.) Looks like they were mad in a good way, “…some people who were drinking with Mel…” who also released photos with Mel along along with their stories;

(02.) Mad in a taught, predictably tense-past-trendy way, Barbara Walters (who says she’s “…through with Mel Gibson movies…”); and,

(03.) Mad in a madness way, Arianna Huffington, who says Mel’s agent “should dump him as a client…”

Square-Black.gif Me, I am thinking that that is good weight to be clear of. And I’ll still see his movies. I’ll see anything that Arianna Huffington thinks is “bad,” “wrong” or “not worthy,” with very few questions asked.

There’s more: more screed from more swarming commentators; it’s getting rich, these tar-and-feather-blood-thirsty-vengeance-is-mine-because-you-stepped-on-my-sandal-or-some-sandal-somewhere people, “rich” as in, too rotund to enter the eye of the needle)…I never knew the term, “sugar tits” could elicit quite so much hate.

And, saving the most mad for last, (this is also from DEFAMER [thanks]), I have to include this on my own site just because it is so precious in the LORD OF THE RINGS way:

Square-Black.gif “Super” “agent” Ari Emanuel got on the telephone (where else) and into the HUFFINGTON POST (predictable) and asked, nay, threw down the gauntlet (was it, the “you’ll never work in this town again” one, or, was it the “no one will return your calls if you don’t do what I ask” one, or, perhaps, “if you want to remain special to me, very special like I know you know I know you are right now, you’ll do what I ask” one, or even the “you OWE me” one), asked Hollywood “to take a stand by professionally shunning Mel Gibson and refusing to work with him, even if it means a sacrifice to their bottom line'” (“ARI’S FRUSTRATION OF THE DAY: BOYCOTTING MEL GIBSON DAY“).

About this super-duper telephoniac::

Hollywood superagent Ari Emanuel — the brash, crass, fast-talking model for the brash, crass, fast-talking character in the HBO hit “Entourage” — has been ruffling feathers this summer in the understated little beach community of Watch Hill, R.I.

“He wears skintight, black-and-hot-pink golf clothes — like really high-tech, long-sleeved black Nike tops,” a Watch Hill denizen confided to Lowdown after observing Emanuel’s flashy West Coast ways. “I saw him golfing in a porkpie hat one time. This is the kind of place he would blend in if he wore madras on the course. He sticks out like a sore thumb.”

The amused Watch Hiller went on: “He drives around in a silver minivan. He’s also always on his phone headset. The golf course changed their cell phone rules because of him. He would always be on the headset on the driving range.”

Square-Black.gif And people such as that think GIBSON has a problem?! The madness — and this is but a tip of what’s out there about Mel Gibson, not from Mel Gibson (he’s apologized for his and he’s into recovery), this is but a tip of what’s active madness without remedy pervading the “film industry” — and this doesn’t even include the many thousands (if not more) phone calls that’ve zig-zagged all over town since Friday morning, in which the worst that can be imagined has undoubtedly been discussed.

Hollywood, your problem is you. What Hollywood never seems to realize is that a lot of people don’t WANT to eat lunch in that town again.

    WAR OF THE WORDS

    If all the “experts” in “Hollywood” would all stand up at once, we’d have an upstanding population in “Hollywood.” Alas, that’s not the case. And most of America — actually, sadly, most of the world — knows that’s the harsh reality of the double-spea…

    AHH, HILLARY CLINTON *IS* AN ACTOR, OR, UH…

    More strange with each passing hour, the MEL GIBSON SAGA. I tried returning time to this past Friday morning but it’s not going to work, not with the news ever-pressing onward. From HOLLYWOOD.com, there is this news and I’ll admit this, I think this is…

    ADL TO GIBSON: “APOLOGY IS ACCEPTED – FOR NOW”

    UPDATE to previous… By way of OUTSIDE THE BELTWAY (“APOLOGY ACCEPTED – FOR NOW”), this news from a few hours ago in THE NEW YORK POST: “‘APOLOGY IS ACCEPTED – FOR NOW’ By Abraham H. Foxman” I enjoyed this take on the issue by OUTSIDE THE BELTWAY: Ant…

    OMGOSH! LOOK WHAT MEL GIBSON DID TO THE SHERIFF’S CAR!

    Just kidding. Photo from Cute Overload where you can read the real story behind this maximumly mad car. But the bad taste is bubbling at a hovering level, finally. I like it that the good taste has triumphed because when I read increasing numbers of c…

    FINALLY, SOMEONE MAKES SENSE: JACKIE MASON and GAVIN DE BECKER

    Jackie Mason on FOX today — where’s he been for the past few days, is my only complaint here — comes forward with good sense about Mel Gibson’s situation. I hope to get a transcript for reprint (or quote) tomorrow (Mason’s on YOUR WORLD with NEIL CAV…

    KIRK DOUGLAS WAS NEVER SPARTACUS, HE WAS JUST CAST THAT WAY

    The Mel-Gibson-as-Focus-Hollywood/Atheist-Angst just won’t stop. Last weekend, I’d hoped that the boombah had had it’s day (and night, all seven of both of them) since Mel Gibson’s DUI arrest in Malibu, CA in the wee hours of Friday, July 28, 2006, but…

    WHAT ARE ROB REINER’S VIEWS ABOUT JESUS CHRIST?

    Tolerance is universal in it’s appeal and requirements. What does Rob Reiner think about the crucifixion of and human life lived by Jesus Christ? s not about Mel Gibson at this point nor about the film made by Gibson — THE PASSION OF THE CHRIST — but…
