FYI, Matthew Frikkin' McConaughey is a frikkin' genial genius. I absolutely loved this interview from GQ and word-for-word he seems about as cool and centred and badass as a man can get. I've got a few highlights below and a link to the article which as you can tell I strongly recommend you enjoy and share.

Feel free to enjoy the McConnaissance, if we're lucky we're living in it! :)

Just keep livin...

Just Keep McConaugheying

You know what we love about Matthew McConaughey? We keep getting older, and he just stays the same age (at least in spirit) even as he glides with Woodersonian ease into act three of a career that somehow feels like it's just getting started

November 2014 | By Brett Martin for GQ

... And you've never felt the need to pretend you weren't having a good time?

Fuck no. Fuck that. I'm not going to apologize for enjoying what I do.

Since you bring it up, is there work in the romantic comedies that you're proud of?

Absolutely. These things aren't easy. What's hard is to make them look easy. Those kinds of movies are what they are. They get pooh-poohed by critics. They get pooh-poohed by actors themselves. And in a way I get it, but in other ways it's completely unfair. There's a buoyancy you need to make them work. I believe I gave them buoyancy. And some of the shoots were very difficult, with me trying to fight for the balls on the guy.

What do you mean?

What's a romantic comedy? Boy meets girl. They get together. Something happens. Girl takes off. Boy chases girl. They get back together. The end. A lot of times the male is somewhat emasculated, meaning he has to crawl back and say, "I'm nothing without you. If you don't take me back, I'm nothing." And I was always like, "What girl wants that guy?" I've got no problem saying, "I'm sorry. You want to give this another shot?" But I've got to come back with some integrity—even if it's on a moped with a veil on my head. Look, I'm happy if you think I "cruised through" those. I did my work. ...

...

... What do you mean by "secret weapon"?

Never is a man more of a man than when he is the father of a newborn. Whatever decisions you make in the first six months of becoming a father, double down on them. I mean, you're meeting the Courier. You're meeting the Shepherd, the Future Prince. You immediately have something you don't have to think about. You know what's important. Bam! And the clarity of that is like, "Whew." I definitely got more selfish. And at the same time, I think I got more compassionate, which don't always go together, you know?

Were you scared of becoming a father?

It's the one thing I've always wanted to be. I knew when I was 8 years old. I mean, I wanted to be things like the Washington Redskins running back and all that stuff, but the one thing I knew I wanted to be was a father. I understood that was why my dad was making me say "Yes, sir" and "Yes, ma'am" to elders. You know, "I'm not on par with the adults yet. There's places to go."

Do your kids say sir and ma'am?

Yeah. We just like it. We like the Mr. and Mrs. and the please and thank you's. We take a version of that southern thing.

This, is your emergency broadscast system...

Introducing... your option.

(Chorus)

No country, for old men?
We can still, take it back!
No country, for old men?
Still, got a sack!

Don't worry, 'bout what I'll do,
Respect, what I can,
No country, for old men?
Who can stop us, man?

(x2)

I'm, "just" a man?
Ha! Then you're, "just" a woman!
Oops, now you're all mad,
Wanna call the cops? Or start suin'?

Good luck,
Gettin' raped, by the red-tape,
Another victim, of the system,
'Til, we set it straight,

Next in line,
After the cops, of course,
No guns, involved,
I'll, at least, discourse,

Ain't feelin', divorce,
For, my socks on the floor,
I just, got home,
From bein', a workin' whore...

(Chorus)

No country, for old men?
We can still, take it back!
No country, for old men?
Still, got a sack!

Don't worry, 'bout what I'll do,
Respect, what I can,
No country, for old men?
Who can stop us, man?

(x2)

A, hundred years,
Of social engineerin', don't bug me,
Still get, thug-love,
And, it's good, to be busy,

Not, a slave-plantation,
Where, the chicks, in charge,
Of takin', the biggest, black guys,
And, makin' 'em feel, less large,

I'm servin' up,
Sigh-laugh, chick-cocktails,
Get smashed, off the laughs,
Get to work, outta jail,

They start, throwin' punches?
Wrap 'em, in a bear-hug,
And, once they calm down,
Make, sweet-sweet love...

(Chorus)

No country, for old men?
We can still, take it back!
No country, for old men?
Still, got a sack!

Don't worry, 'bout what I'll do,
Respect, what I can,
No country, for old men?
Who can stop us, man?

(x2)

Ain't all, about you,
Girl, you wouldn't respect, that,
Cut each other, up at parties?
Break, and say "your perfect" trap?

I, don't, blame, you,
For, what, do you know?
Maybe, what you're s'posed to,
Now, how 'bout you, bro?

These, cute, little creatures,
Gotta plan, plot and scheme,
Big scary ones, lose it,
Nightmare's, not a dream,

I'll trade, soft-sides,
'Cause, my hard one'll kill ya,
Or, chill ya,
Good thing, we like ya, now will ya?

Relax,
Like, we and you, want to,
Wanna do, what I gotta do,
To make sure, you can to,

So, feel, how it sound,
When, they play, "Jump Around"
And, balls, hit the ground,
Gine'y (heiny) tingle, at the sound...

Yeah...

I know you grandma's askin' teenage girls for advice on what yoga pants make your ass look great. The answer is none and you all lie to each other. So, we'll have fun, but we're not being run into the ground by a bunch of teenage girls...

(Chorus)

No country, for old men?
We can still, take it back!
No country, for old men?
Still, got a sack!

Don't worry, 'bout what I'll do,
Respect, what I can,
No country, for old men?
Who can stop us, man?

(x2)

Yeah...

Here endeth the lesson...

Now...

Feel free to relax and get back to work...

You know who I'm talkin' to...

Women takin' on more and men less stress than they need...

Now, I'm generalizing, but I love that word, "Generalizing"...

"I'm Generalizing"... so we generally know what works.

You can differ and do what you want...

But, if you're not happy, don't forget how to be.

Love, ya boyfriend.

Nah, ya manfriend!

Yeah!
