So I heard about this guy this morning, and I ended up reading the entirety of both his blogs today.
They were strangely fascinating, not only because of his frontline exposť into the horrors of gay partyland and his brutal alternative perspective on gay culture, but because of how keenly self-aware James/Erik was of his fucked-upness and his incapacity to help himself.
He's blatantly upfront about his body being a shell for his insecurities, which typifies his refreshingly no-bullshit stance about life in general.
Some choicer entries: Erik Rhodes: "A Romance with Misery" - Who, what, where would you be if there wasn Erik Rhodes: "A Romance with Misery" - you Erik Rhodes: "A Romance with Misery" - Hi, What
I don't want to say too much about this here, I feel like his blog entries speak for themselves.
A fascinating and strangely compelling example of American "Live Hard, Be Beautiful, Die Young" semi-stardom.
