a passionate physical and emotional love based on aesthetic enjoyment; stereotype of romantic love

a love that is played as a game or sport; conquest; may have multiple partners at once

an affectionate love that slowly develops from friendship, based on similarity

love that is driven by the head, not the heart

obsessive love; experience great emotional highs and lows; very possessive and often jealous lovers

selfless altruistic love; spiritual

Going Over 


Going Over is an illustrated meditation on the global marketing of masculinity through hair, hair products and signature hairstyles, focusing on the microcosm of Kuwait and the ‘exiting of trends’ by Kuwati youth, in contrast with the hair conservatism of an older generation.In this presentation, Al Qadiri and Al Gharaballi explore historic comparisons, hair regulation reports from Iran and a case study conducted in Kuwait; the discussion will expose the delicate relationship between hair and culture and, more specifically, between barber and client. Commissioned by DIS magazine and Bidoun Projects.-x

While Kuwait has little to no appearance regulations, there exists the same acute fixation on hair. Emad, a Syrian barber from Papillon, says Kuwaitis basically take trends and “exit them through transformation and exaggeration.” What Emad means by “exiting trends” is when an existing global trend is transmogrified through the filter of local popular media, resulting in a highly localized and specific trend.

More than presenting a masculine ideal, the goal is to stand out, to differentiate oneself in a conforming context. Young men, who tend to loiter and peacock around shopping malls, are taking their hair to new extremes in order to attract the attention of members of the opposite sex. These looks express defiance, while implicating status and independence.

Beckham’s hairstyle, which became known in Kuwait as il-Deech (the Rooster), was the original haircut from which the present styles evolved. From the beginning, Emad’s clients would come in the day after he had cut their Rooster and demand he make it “more.” The young men competed over whose hair was “higher” or had more “electricity.” Another popular haircut is the Quaresma, originally pronounced “Karisma.” It is light, textured and long, and the boys went “over” on it. They exaggerated it to an unrecognizable level. Blending the Beckham, the Karisma, and the “Over” Rooster, the wearers created a new style where the bangs are thin, layered, textured, and swept over, while the top is made high and animated. Where the original hairstyles were easily identifiable and derivative of David Beckham’s iconic fauxhawks, the current styles have evolved in so many directions that none of these styles have names anymore. According to Emad, this trend in hairstyles is broadly called “Over,” as in overdone.

In the same way Beckham and Ronaldo are restricted by their uniforms, the youth of Kuwait and Iran are subjected to the throngs of mainstream, cultural, and religious conformity and regulations. And, despite the commercial intentions of aggressive marketing techniques, these youth use their hair – specifically the “Over” style – as a crucial method of expressing rebellion, individuality and personal growth from boyhood to manhood, from dependence to independence. x

(via woodmeat)

registered for 4 classes because the one (other) class I wanted was already full and I am not waiting until I hear back from advisors only to find out the class I registered for doesn’t meet my requirements so i’ll drop the rest once I find out. I’m nerves. I have to make an A and the only thing I made an A in in college was bowling and a music class. BUT I’m ready.






I’m not in the business of letting single niggas tell me how to adjust or alter my relationship

Shit, I told my girl about this trash ass post and she was like “I bet that nigga post lightskin girls with curly hair and their ass out, responding to thirst traps and ain’t even in a relationship”

And lo and behold, that is what accurately describes his page.

So bruh, lemme give you a word of advice right quick, don’t say shit about what any nigga should do for his girl in a relationship if you still getting curved by virtual bitches on the dash

I’m so sorry my post got you in your feelings also that you wrote a long as text post  about how i got you in your feelings but i respect for tagging me and shit but the only reason why you probably got tight about that post because i probably was describing your dusty ass

Bruh I really don’t think I’m the one that’s dusty when you single, and the one of many lightskinned girls you be thirsting over ain’t giving you the time of day and that hoe got 2 autoplay music players on her goddamn page.

Like if you fucking with simple hoes like that you must be a simple ass nigga so I apologize for assuming you got enough sense to realize what kind of trash ass post you made, that’s my fault.

But be honest, what type of nigga are you to basically just act like a girl you supposed to be feeling can’t pull her weight in a relationship and says other niggas ain’t shit if she does though?

You a cuckold.

I feel sorry for you.

He shouldn’t have responded.

I logged on to the work computer just so that ‘Reblog as link’ wouldn’t ruin the glory of this exchange.
