Sunday Funnies

Brilliant Mind of Edison Lee
On an aside:  Fred Upton was at the Hollywood Bowl two weekends ago to attend JJ Abram's full 2009 Star Trek film in concert with the LA Philharmonics.  While there, he managed to fold and give a Won Park 2-piece $ Enterprise to Michael Giacchino, the composer of the Star Trek score; and George Takei, who Fred says is a fan of origami.  A note about the $ bills Fred folds with:  they have included in their serial numbers, "1701".

Another friend of mine along the same weekend posted on FB photos of her at the Japanese-American National Museum and shopping in a supermarket with George Takei and his husband (got his opinion on the whole gay Sulu thing- publicly known about).

I'm not a big fan of the Abram's reimagined Star Trek universe (enjoyable on their own terms); but have any of you ever bothered to check out the fan-made Star Trek Continues?  Absolutely impressive and amazing at how well they have captured the heart and spirit, the look and feel, of the Original Series.  It's like discovering lost episodes.  They are that good!
