I am so excited to be participating in my very first Blogathon!And what makes this even more special for me, is that this Blogathon celebrates Character Actors — those abundantly delightful ‘support’ players who add so much ‘character’ (forgive the pun) to the classics! Rhodes seemed to consider putting it all out there as his round-the-clock job.Things went downhill from there and his expressed misery crossed platforms and ran all the way through his most recent Tumblr post: five days ago, he discussed his steroid and human growth hormone usage, adding, "Frontiers L.Rhodes was born in El Reno, Oklahoma Territory in 1906.
I ‘stumbled upon’ Rhodes simply because I’m a huge Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers fan, and he ‘just happens to be’ in two of their movies, The Gay Divorcee and Top Hat — playing the well-meaning ‘professional’ co-respondent Rodolfo Tonetti and the wonderfully sincere dress-designer Alberto Beddini, respectively.points to a post from two months ago, in which Rhodes discussed his use of meth and a resulting 72-hour period he spent at Bellevue under observation.It's an extreme example of the kind of show-and-telling of his own destruction Rhodes did for over four years: Before picking up the computer and spilling these thoughts out of my head i just sat there...I was just thinking the other day as i did my typical routine, "jesus, this doesnt feel like living" and i thought to myself when in my life did i feel more alive?and it was when i woke up in hospital bed after OD'ing. This hard life i forced my body to endure is starting to show.I guess that why i been so obcessed with autoerotic asphyxia lately, when your life feels so meaningless at times, you need to wake yourself up and let you know your alive. I get a nosebleed almost everyday, my heartburn feels like i'm constantly being stabbed in the chest, my knees ache, my body aches.
