It’s Aloha Friday and what better way to prepare for the weekend than by reading about Star Trek alumni, Clint Eastwood and high-end watermelons?
- Star Trek alum George Takei speaks to NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center on his interment experience. Want more news on the soon-to-be-wed Takei? Check out Wednesday’s post on him here.
- Clint Eastwood, director of Flags of our Fathers and Letters from Iwo Jima, responds to fellow director Spike Lee‘s criticism that Eastwood failed to include a single black soldier in the two WWII films: “A guy like him should shut his face.”
- What does a $6,100 Densuke watermelon taste like? wonders the Daily Dish blog from the Los Angeles Times. Or better yet, what IS a Densuke watermelon? From said blog: “The 17-pound black melon is considered the cream of the crop, one of only 65 from the first harvest of the season. The fruit is only grown on the northern island of Hokkaido, adding to its value.”
