As part of my “OH MY GOD I AM GOING TO BE IN AFRICA” preparations, I went to see Sahara with LeeAnn and Liz. Yeah. Wow. Terrible movie (as detailed by each of us here, here, and here), but chock-full of fascinating scenery, and an interesting (if somewhat inaccurate) portrayal of life in the Western Sahara.
But Africa is not (for once) my point. I want to talk about Matthew McConaughey. That’s exactly what I want by my side while Saving The World. Beautiful? Yes. Southern accent? Yes indeed. And playing Dirk Pitt, whom I’m desperately in love with (yes, I read Clive Cussler, SHUTUP). There’s something so terribly appealing about freewheeling adventurers. We all know I’d lead that life if I could find a way to do it and Save The World at the same time.
And finally, McConaughey’s journal from the promo tour. Mmmmm. Tastey. Am I a stalker or what?
