The "Marine" haricut that is so prevalent on American guys. Â For a perfect example, look at Josh Gracin on the current run of American Idol.
Maybe I'm thinking of the wrong guy (I am not that avid of an American Idol fan), but I'm pretty sure Josh is
a marine. That said, he has to have his hair trimmed so it is well above his ears and neck and tapered or else be held down by some big ugly guys w/razors and have his hair cut for him. Also (again, assuming this is the guy that is the marine), it's a given that if you graduate and become a marine, your physique will be beefy. I've had plenty of buddies who were puny and/or chubby when they left for boot camp, and when they came back they were huge. And anyways whats wrong w/having a little muscle over the next guy? It comes in real handy at parties when trouble is amidst, as well as when you're in the middle of a maul and you've mistook some guy's head for the ball (rugby humor). And now on to dancing (sorry, but you negatively exemplified a lot of what I'm about). This really has less to do w/American Idol than it does w/dancing in general, which is a look I would like to see stopped
. Guys shouldn't dance. OK, maybe it's more complicated: if you've never been approached by someone claiming you are a good dancer--assuming your sarcasm detector doesn't go off the charts--don't dance. I'm not just saying this because I can't dance (unless you consider 'throwing-down' dancing); I have had a few girls come up to me and commend me on not dancing. It's best left to the ladies. (And, yes, I am aware that most girls want their guys to dance w/them... but it just looks so damn stupid.) Be aware that I can compare nothing
about myself to the American Idol contestant you spoke of. I'm about as clean cut as Rick Vaughn. Oh yeah and don't be dissin' country music.
