S-E-X-Y L-I-V-I-N

People magazine recently announced this year's "Sexiest Man Alive", and the winner is....Matthew McConaughey. Now, I've had some issues with People's choices in the past. They either pick no-brainers like Johnny Depp or Brad Pitt, or they go with some goober like Mark Harmon. I'm still wondering why John Travolta has never won. He wins my Sexiest Man Alive Award every year, but I just publish this lowly blog, not a ginormous, mainstream magazine so no one cares. At any rate, I can't find anything to complain about this year. Matthew is hot. Damn hot. That smile. That hair. That draaaaawl. I think part of his appeal is that he seems like a regular fella. He's like that one out of place, genetically blessed guy living in the little hick town, unaware of his stunning studliness who all the girls drool over while he's out driving around shirtless on his John Deere.

Of course, that story a while back about him getting high and playing the bongos naked didn't do anything to turn most of us ladies off! In searching for a pic of Matthew for this entry, I was really hoping to come across a shot of that. Didn't any of his idiot neighbors have the motivation to get the camera out and try to zoom in through the blinds? If I lived next door to him, I...well, I better not dwell on that fantasy.

I thought he and Sandra Bullock made a cute couple. They kind of looked like the popular-but-nice high school steadies all grown up. Unfortunately, it's been reported that the sexy Texan is now dating Penelope Cruz. I can't stand that chick.

Still, no matter who he's dating or how famous he becomes or how hot he is, Matthew McConaughey will always be Wooderson* to me. And I love Wooderson. He was hot. Even with that porn star hair and mustache and the pink pants, he was hot. It's hard to look truly hot in '70s garb. But he pulled it off.

Alright, alright, alriiiight.

Just dropped by to thank you for visiting Sanity's Bluff. Since I know absolutely nothing about the pop culture nowadays, I can't leave a smerty comment.
But I'll lurk around and when you dive into politics....I'll mouth off.
One word.....
satisfaction
hope you have enough of it today.

Thanks for coming by and figuring out a few tunes... I finally gave up waiting and answered the last three myself...

I like Matthew McConaughey! He's a laid-back kind of guy, it seems without being too much of a slacker, his character in Dazed and Confused not withstanding.

(Hey! As an aside, Rory Cochrane was also in Dazed and Confused, and he's just damn hot too.)

bwa-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha! You just called Mark Harmon a "goober!" Bwa-ha-ha-ha-gasp-gasp-ha-ha-ha-ha!

Matthew just doesn't do it for me.

sotomite said...

Yeah, Matthew McConaughey is a hunk; even a guy can see that. I want to look like him when I lose weight... If you haven't seen "A Time To Kill" with him and Sandra Bullock, it's a great flick (and he doesn't even bone her).

Bonanza Jellybean said...

Matthew is HOT, and Dazed and Confused is required viewing. Definitely.

Homer Jay said...

Sure, MM is cute, if you like that sort of thing. But does he like PICKLES?

Masha said...

this is one guy that me AND my mom agree on

Sheila said...

I've never been a big fan of Matthew McConaughey, but that is an awesome picture of him. I moved to Austin just 2 months before the naked bongo incident. It was on the news every day for weeks. (Sorry, no pictures.) I think I just got tired of him.

OH YES! SSSSEEEEXXXXYYYYY! SSSSEEEEXXXXYYYYY! SSSSEEEEXXXXYYYYY! SSSSEEEEXXXXYYYYY!

and a southern man!

jesse said...

Have you ever seen the movie Tully? It's a smart, funny little flick about that clueless, shirtless hicktown guy. Definitely worth a watch.

Becky -I LOVE Dazed and Confused!

And hey, you don't have a lowly blog. Your blog is special, just like all of us that put so much energy and passion into it!

*hugs*

I'm just upset that they discriminate. Why don't they hold a Sexiest Man Deceased award? I'm sure some of them are turning in their graves every year just thinking that they were left out because of this bias. B)

My favorite issue of People is out! The only one I ever buy each year. I heard Bono is in there somewhere, now why isn't he on the cover???? He's my pick.

If they do go with 80's Nut's idea I pick Jim Morrison.

MM is a doll-baby but not on the top of my list....although the naked bongo playing is very intriguing.

I don't like P Cruz either, she bugs. But no one bugs as much as Renee Z. or Mariah C.

Gosh, I'm in bad mood. I better leave.

I am one of your number one fans so please don't stop writing when you hit the big time in NYC!

I didn't get how he was selected until I saw the photo of him here on your blog...now I see he is damn sexy! But what do I know...

Doggie Extraordinaire's Mom said...

Oh yeah, Matthew is smoking hot! My personal favorite look of his was in Contact, but A Time To Kill comes in close behind. Mmm, behind. :)

You know, I think People did an excellent job this year choosing the sexiest men alive. I agreed with most of the selections and had fun drooling over them.

 

Who Does This Broad Think She Is?

My photo
I am a winsome muse who was sent to Earth to inspire an artist to turn a vacant building into the world's coolest disco roller rink. We fell in love along the way, and I foolishly gave up my immortality. When the disco craze ended and all the roller rinks were shut down, that lazy bum wouldn't get a job. We broke up and I was stuck on Earth with nothing to do and no one to inspire. So, now I write a blog.
