    Re: Fiji

    Maybe a holiday in Fiji, but he kept it really quiet until he posed for photographs at the airport when leaving. He was supposedly there for a week.

    Here's an interview with the professor Matt talks to in the Years of living dangerously doc:

    “Matt was great,” said Hall. “He was very well-informed and knew how to elicit interesting responses. He was a really good interviewer.”

    In Bed with Joan was so funny. I laughed a lot. Tom Papa is lovable.

    It's a pity the show (More time with family) wasn't picked up but it could always be modified or picked up later.

    Ridley Scott

    He is scouting for more than one film:

    http://www.smh.com.au/entertainment/movies/short-cuts-the-latest-australian-film-news-20140528-zrqeu.html

    Legendary filmmaker Ridley Scott has been in Sydney scouting locations for not just one but two movies. The director of Alien, Blade Runner and Gladiator has met with Cate Blanchett, Russell Crowe and other industry identities, including Animal Logic boss Zareh Nalbandian. ‘‘He’s an incredible dynamo who has projects lined up back to back,’’ Nalbandian says. ‘‘We’re hopeful we can find a way to get at least one of them to our shores’’. Scott’s upcoming movies include the Matt Damon sci-fi pic The Martian, which is the main contender to shoot here, Prometheus 2 and a Blade Runner sequel.

    Matt's first cousin Jamie Damon is training Ben for Batman and Matt gave a quick quote to the Hollywood Reporter, calling him "a stud of a trainer."

    He has a way of expressing big ideas in a very grounded, accessible, logical way. That's our boy!
    Well done, Matt.

    Re: Matt on why he cares about climate change

    For 6 years living in Australia's Capital, throughout summer I struggled to cope in 40-46 degree Celcius heat with one plug-in electric fan, and through a very long and cold winter I struggled with only one small electric heater. Luckily I had water for cool showers/flannels and to freeze for ice cubes for a cool drink, or water to boil for a warm drink. I walked through the extreme winter weather to go the grocery store for a few years until I was able to buy a car. When my toes were frozen, walking in sandles through winter, I watched all the people drive by in their 'posh' cars and came to the realization that the majority are selfish and don't care.. Honestly, I don't think climate change is the problem. I think human beings are. M..

    Santa Cruz

    Matt, family and friends are in Santa Cruz. Various direct breaches of their privacy on Twitter and Instagram if you want to search (better?)

    He was there to watch the Santz Cruz Derby Girls (roller derby team). A friend of Lucy's is on the team.
