Clog Misses Clint Eastwood, Apologizes Profusely Two Days Later

Bad-asseryWe’re not sure what it is about Clint Eastwood and Berkeley’s Center for Japanese Studies, but apparently they go together like Clint Eastwood and movies with guns in them. Or Clint Eastwood and silver foxiness. Ahem. You get the gist.

Anyway, what we’re getting at here is that the (and we quote ourselves on this one) “laconic gunslinger, squint-eyed cowboy lady-killer, stone-cold sonofabitch and enduring icon of masculinity” himself was in Berkeley on Friday [1], for the second time this academic year, and for the second time this academic year, he was at the Center for Japanese Studies.

Last time [2] Eastwood was seen ’round these parts, it was to speak at a reception as a prize for designing the Resident Faculty Program’s logo. This time, he was here getting a prize, instead of being a prize. Eastwood received the Center for Japanese Studies’ first annual “Berkeley Japan New Vision” award–which, incidentally, actually sounds like a pretty New Vision-y award title in and of itself–for his movie “Letters from Iwo Jima.” We’d crack a “Dirty Harry” joke, but the Daily Cal’s article beat us to it, so we’ll probably just mention “Gran Torino [3]” kind of ironically and call it a night.
