Miind-Blowing Face Painting
Moscow-based photographer Alexander Khokhlov working with makeup artist Valeriya Kutsan manage to capture faces as surreal versions of themselves, inspired by two-dimensional posters, comics, pop art, paintings, pixelated images, and cartoon characters. The project explains: “Valeriya used different techniques of face painting so you can see a lot of variations – from sketch and graphic arts to water-colour and oil-paintings. This is a combination of interesting make-ups, studio photography experiments and careful retouching.”

My chain hits my chest
when I’m banging on the dashboard
my chain hits my chest
when I’m banging on the radio
suki zuky I’m coming in the Cherokee
gasoline there’s steam on the window screen
take it take it wheels bouncing like a trampoline
when I get to where I’m going
gonna have you trembling
“Suki, suki” means “drive, drive” in Arabic. In the music video Saudi Arabian women are driving and aren’t supposed to, so MIA’s saying “suki, suki”. They’re bad girls.
Further, سوقي (suuqii) is in the imperative singular feminine, in a form I think is Saudi colloquial — more formal would be اسوقي. So, it has an additional subtlety of telling a female to drive.
That ass so rare 🙌
What’s up? Its funny that you ask this question because I was just talking to a friend that I’m trying to help about the same issue. A lot of new guys who get into the game aren’t really learning what it takes to become successful, because they’re just memorizing information. Memorizing isn’t learning. I know that the educational system taught us otherwise, but if you really want to get good at this then you’re going to have to internalize the knowledge. You won’t get what I’m talking about until you go out and apply what I’m saying. The quickest way to gain confidence is to get results in the real world. Success breeds confidence. Just reading what I’m saying isn’t going to help you. You must be willing to get your hands dirty. I know a lot of guys who “think” they’re good with women; but there is a difference between getting better in your head and getting better in reality. So now that I’ve cleared that up, I think we’re at a better place where I can help you. Ultimately I’m not your teacher, a dating guru, or anything of that nature. Matter of fact I’m not teaching you anything….What we’re doing is practicing regression.
You must regress before you progress, especially when you’re trying to get better at women and dating. You must do a complete 360 turn from what society says is politically correct. Because being politically correct means that you spend most of your nights alone with no girls. In the movies the shy nice guy who goes out his way not to offend anybody, gets the girl at the end of the film…right? But every man knows the truth. In the movies the nice guy gets the girl, in real life nice guys masturbate. *laughs* Its the nice guy who believes that he needs to “wait” for the woman of his dreams. Boys wait, men take action. There is no such thing as a wrong or right timing, that is an excuse. Most boys spend their whole lives waiting…Waiting until they have enough money, until they have a decent job, until they move out of their mom’s house…Or whatever on their checklist until they can find and attract beautiful women. Its social conditioning. The problem is they waste so much time waiting, that opportunities pass them by. The greatest advice I received two years ago, was that I was enough…Even without a car, money, or a huge house…I was enough. You are enough…You don’t need anything else as a man to attract women. “waiting” for the right time to go talk to women on account of how much money you have in your wallet is an excuse…You don’t need any of that shit to be good with women. I know plenty of guys who don’t have money to eat lunch, but they are successful with women. You have been brainwashed into believing that you weren’t enough, and that you needed something external in order to reach your potential. You are the fucking man…You don’t need anything to feel good about yourself. You are enough…Women aren’t into your money, and if you do have girls in your life who are superficial like that then you need to change your company. Only insecure women are into money because they feel like it will give them self-esteem….They’re not actually attracted to the men in their life, they’re dependent on them….See the difference?
So I’m reading your last sentence and it doesn’t make any sense to me…What do you mean by rejection? Because what most guys view as rejection is pathetic. Are you rejected when a woman doesn’t give you her phone number? If that is the case…Even the guys who get phone numbers most of the time are going to get rejected they just don’t realize it at the time. Because what if you get a girl’s number but you crept her out in the process. Some girls give their number out-or a fake number- just so they don’t hurt a guy’s feelings. Even if you do receive a number that doesn’t necessarily mean that she likes you. Maybe she just wanted you to get the hell out of her face, so she gave you what she thought would make you happy. You don’t know it, but she does…You are going to get “rejected”…Just at a later time. That is why the whole number thing is silly…Its a little boys game that they use to prove to their friends that they have “balls”. Some guys think they won something by getting a phone number. The number is only worth anything if you get to see the girl again, right? Right. So it comes down to, what exactly is rejection…and how do you avoid it?
Personally, I don’t believe in rejection. I have to reject myself first, in order for a woman to have that authority. Just because a girl is acting like a bitch, it doesn’t mean that she is rejecting you. The whole bitch persona is absolutely normal. That isn’t rejection, it just means that she doesn’t want you to think that she is a slut who just gives her number out to weridos just because they ask for it. You can almost expect some resistance at first…Because at first you’re only what a woman sees visually. But all of that gets transformed over the course of the interaction…So even if a guy is “ugly” and I hate using the word “ugly” because no one is truly ugly its just a perception.. Even if a man isn’t good looking but he knows how to make women feel good, then his looks don’t matter. Some guys think they need to be abercrombie models in order to get girls, and avoid being rejected…That is an excuse as well. If you believe you have to be extremely good looking to avoid being rejected by women, then you are rejecting yourself. You’re basically saying that you’re not good enough how you are to get results…and that you need something else to “improve” you. When it just isn’t true. If you’re an awesome guy, even something as concrete as your looks get transformed as well to fit your personality. A man is only as attractive as his personality..
Do you see how all of this makes sense? Do you know how many men actually can do this? Its rare…because most men are waiting to become someone attractive, instead of being someone attractive. The game only works for a select few men, because only a chosen few actually believe in this..But it is real. Go out and see for yourself.
May God bless you.
hey, its not sweater season but who the fuck is stopping me hmmmm?
