What is Radical Honesty? Radical Honesty is a kind of communication that is direct, complete, open and expressive. Radical Honesty means you tell the people in your life what you've done or plan to do, what you think, and what you feel. It's the kind of authentic sharing that creates the possibility of love and intimacy.
The practice of Radical Honesty is based on the work and writings of Dr. Brad Blanton, a psychologist who found that the best way to reduce stress, make life work, and heal the past is to tell the truth.
Reckless honesty is the result of pushing the authenticity envelope so far that you shoot yourself in the foot. Radical honesty is having the balls to walk up to a girl and say “Hi” because you think she’s attractive and you want to find out more. Reckless honesty is walking up to the same girl and saying “Wow, you are absolutely gorgeous. There’s nothing I’d like to do more right now than to take you into the nearest bathroom, rip all your clothes off, and tap that ass"
1. EMOTIONAL HONESTY: Reveal your emotional reactions, both positive and negative, to the events of your life, particularly to your spouse's behavior.
2. HISTORICAL HONESTY: Reveal information about your personal history, particularly events that demonstrate personal weakness or failure.
3. CURRENT HONESTY: Reveal information about the events of your day. Provide your spouse with a calendar of your activities, with special emphasis on those that may affect your spouse.
4. FUTURE HONESTY: Reveal your thoughts and plans regarding future activities and objectives.

With one of their better conceptual designs of the year, the Jordan camp gets set to launch their Tribe Called Quest tribute Jordan 1’s. The kicks take obvious cues from Tribe’s Midnight Marauders album which sprang the classic single “Award Tour” not to mention elevated the group’s intellectual rhymes into another stratosphere with a blend of Jazz infused Hip-Hop. Following that same timeless element, the sneakers feature a mostly black palette with beautifully placed embroidered mesh, green/red accenting and a sleek patent leather swoosh. Select retailers including Undefeated will see a release this Saturday, January 31st at all of their US chapter stores.
The landmark Chemosphere home in the Hollywood Hills and its owner, publisher Benedikt Taschen, were profiled in a 2005 Home cover story. “What was great about Lautner is that he had this dualism about nature and the city,” Taschen said at the time, noting that one side of the house was “pure nature,” with skunks, bobcats, coyotes and deer, while the other side was “pure city,” the vast San Fernando Valley.
The career of the architect John Lautner (1911-1994) spanned more than six decades, yet he is little known outside the architecture world, even though his buildings have starred in movies like “Diamonds are Forever” and “Charlie’s Angels.” Man’s relationship to nature and the universe intrigued Lautner and informed his designs, from coffee shops to plans for endless cities. Unfolding from the hills, nestled in canyons, or hovering above city skylines, Lautner’s residential projects have had influence on some of today’s most important architects — Frank Gehry, Zaha Hadid and Rem Koolhaas, among them.

After its late night launch the SMS 570 Challenger began its lengthy tour to numerous US destinationsand Dodge dealerships. First stop last weekend was the Barrett-Jackson auction in Scottsdale, AZ,where it was on display for attendees to admire.
“Scottsdale was just a stopover en route to the NADA Convention in New Orleans”, notes Steve, “I will present the car to Dodge dealers at the convention January 24-27”. The car will then continue on to anumber of locations in the South East where it will be shown to customers and dealers. A US press tour with both production models will follow at the end of the first quarter of 2009.

A SUV, and particularly one which is driven by a diesel engine, is not quite a lazy car. Mercedes tuner KICHERER shows how the Mercedes GL 420 CDI learns to fly in its recent reincarnation named KICHERER GL 42 Black Line.
The KICHERER GL draws its extended force resources from a modified engine control unit wrenching 360hp and a torque of 900Nm from the V8 engine. To make sure that this excess in performance may be properly enjoyed, the electronic Vmax limit has been raised to 280km/h. The suspension is electronically adjusted and comes up with a much sportier characteristic curve preventing the SUV from loosing its temper. The accelerator pedal’s response behaviour, too, has been electronically optimised in order to make sure that the engine will release its performance more spontaneously. These technical modifications are brought to perfection by a two-pass sports exhaust system. To illustrate the increased motor activity visually, the KICHERER GL has been provided with an off-road package comprising, among other things, running boards, larger fenders, a new grille and a roof-edge spoiler as well as numerous black body trims. A complete special edition 21“ wheelset with wide-base tyres is the cherry on top. Inside the car, KICHERER drivers will enjoy a sports steering wheel, trim parts made of genuine carbon as well as a complete leather equipment covering even the roof interior and many other elements. All tuning components are sold singly or are already integrated in a complete vehicle. The test car price of the GL 42 Black Line is 125,820 Euros.

The PUMA x Undefeated “24k Collection” features the PUMA Mid - a mid-cut version of the iconic PUMA Suede, which is redefined through Undefeated’s unique style.
The silhouette of the PUMA Mid offers a clean and “grown” look, while design details and material upgrades bring the shoe to life. The collection includes four different classic colors, all done in perforated suede, matching midsole stitching and accented with an embossed snakeskin formstrip. Also included in the collection is an extra limited mirror gold version. The inner sole is decorated with the Undefeated logo while a studded “five strikes” pierces through the outer collar. The shoes come with three different lace options, and the double-sided metal hangtag featuring both the PUMA and Undefeated logos are the final touches which set the shoe apart and make them a must in your rotation.
The collection will be hitting shelves in all the Undefeated locations on Saturday, February 7th as well as the following retailers: Classic Kicks (NYC), ALIFE (NYC), Atmos (NYC), Major (DC), Premium Goods (Houston), Leaders (Chicago) and Bodega (Boston), Ubiq (Philadelphia).

[Fabulous and his entourage] requested "the usual excess of champagne and alcohol, so the manager asked for a credit card to start a tab." Unfortunately, Fabolous' credit cards were all declined. "By the fifth credit card, the entourage member designated to take care of his tab goes outside," our source said, "only to start a fight with the outside bouncer. He tripped and fell, hitting his head on the concrete and started bleeding. The manager called an ambulance. But as soon as the entourage member also saw the police, he began running away, blood oozing down his face." So … the dude that was supposed to pay goes outside without paying … then gets his azz beat by the bouncer. Must have been a hood restaurant.Well ... better him getting his azz whooped that Fabo...
When I first saw this place, all I could do was "jaw-drop" Its amazing from front to back - Truely what dreams are made of.

Italian architect Duilio Damilano has sent us some exterior photos of the B-House he designed, which was recently built in Cuneo, Italy.
A highly placed source in Kelly Rowland’s camp exclusively tells Bossip she fired manager Matthew Knowles today. The well positioned source tells Bossip a big argument went down and at the end, Kelly kicked her “Dad” to the curb. The source goes on to say this is sure to put a strain on Kelly and Beyonce’s relationship.
We are pretty sure this has something to do with the Knowles clan trying to sabotage Kelly’s career for years. Beyonce is almost the only one left from Destiny’s Child, imagine that.
You heard it heard it here first.
Was he paying too much attention to Beyonce or does he deserve more loyalty?
hasn’t even seen the movie, she has serious beef with it. In a recent interview with AHH, she goes hard at Ms. Wallace, Lil’ Kim, and Faith. She says Big only had one official girl, her
On Being Big’s Only girl:
Charli Baltimore: Well anybody that knows Big, or D-Roc or Cease or any person that lived in Big’s house…even Ms. Wallace whether she wants to believe it or not, knows that I was Big’s girl. I don’t need to say it every five minutes, I don’t need to throw Big a dinner every year on his birthday and sit his picture there and pray all praises be to Big. I know what I had with Big, and I don’t need to explain it to everyone.
She also goes at Kim and Ms Wallace:
Wanted Christina Milian to portray her as Lil’ Kim? I wasn’t aware they were the same complexion [laughs]. Again I didn’t see the movie but last I checked, well I don’t know what color she is right now, but she was brown-skinned. Maybe she’s light-skinned now. I don’t know. People change skin tones in this day and age. I can’t see Christina Milian portraying Lil Kim. That’s not…that seems really weird to me, but you know, to each his own.
On Ms Wallace:
Maybe it made [Voletta Wallace] feel better [to leave Charli Baltimore out of the film], I don’t know. Maybe it made for juicier story lines to just use Kim and Faith
I've been loving this shoe for a while.....not really sure how exactly I would rock em, but this possibilities are endless with this colors.

I used to get teased a lot when I was younger about being a "prettyboy" and I'd been following the Blogging craze closely, studying the fashion, interior design, automobile, jewelry and technology fields intensely. I feel I have enough insight, opinion and all out style to start my own blog. What started out as just a diary for my thoughts and what I'd seen on the Internet has turned into a full time job, an organized canvas of my dreams.
I'm glad you came to the site, enjoy your stay, take something away with you.
