Blind Item #8 - A Dancing Boy Blind

Here's one about, in part, something I haven't discussed before:

Sunday brunch, in college times, consisted of Challah French Toast, black coffee, and the children of celebrities, and assorted prep school throwaways nursing nosebleeds and hangovers from the night before.

In this one case - later in those years - I was joined by two friends, both of whom would become journalists. Neither of them mentioned it, but sometimes you can feel the stares of others, even when they're at your back.

"Why are they looking at us?" I asked, pretending to read the Times.

"I don't think they're looking at us honey. I think they're looking at you."

"How come?"

"According to (one of the people at the table - the son of a disco-era R&B singer/bandleader known in particular for this one song about partying), there are pictures and video of you on the net - from when you were in San Francisco."

"I guess we know what they're into," I said, audibly.

"Some things you wish you hadn't seen," he replied.

I turned to him, looking straight into his eyes, and said: "You chose to look at that stuff, unlike all those people who come to your house on campus, and find themselves greeted by your naked and erect self."

And that was that.

The first question people ask me, when they hear about this part of my past, is if I had known about the internet, would I have done it still. The answer, if it's my current self, is a resounding no. But, in truth, you'd be asking my adolescent self, who had a limited sense of consequences, and on the worst days - owing largely to the shame and self-loathing that comes with abuse - little expectation of making it past 30. His answer, I'm afraid, would still be yes.

But hey: at least I didn't use my real name - which brings me to the second part of this blind.

A few weeks back I got a phone call from one of my aforementioned friends. It seems this person's employer wants to be the publication that breaks the story of a major celebrity scandal (which you all now know about). In involves of course one of my friends and forthcoming players - who I had vowed years back to help lift up if I ever got back in the game - and something that began when he, like me, was fourteen.

I told her exactly what he told me, which is that he hasn't decided if he's ready to speak with the press yet, but he's getting closer to that point. (I also said - and this is inside baseball stuff - that a certain reporter from a different news organization, known for this one law prof/blogger, would have to share the byline. I feel I owe him this.)

"What about you?" she asked.

"You want to do a story about my illustrious career as a teen porn star?"

"No, not really," she said.

And then, silence.

"You still there?" she asked, finally.

"Yes, and you know the answer. It isn't that I won't but I can't - not now anyhow."

"Fair enough," she said, and proceeded to tell me this story. It's about someone you may or may not have ever heard of, but who in recent years was on the short list for a top job in his profession. What scuttled his bid? There is a picture, of course, just a google search away. But that wasn't the only one they found during the vetting process. There were numerous others, pictures and videos, from his late teens and early twenties - all apparently circulating on barely legal websites since the 1990s. And not even that was all. According to one his friends from back then, he often played the "son," "nephew," or "protege" of wealthy, closeted politicians, judges, and even in one case a country singer at parties in his home state - never using a pseudonym. It may not be a scandal in Hollywood, but it certainly would be there.

Anyone pickle anything this week?

plot said...

Rye bread?

Yes or no?

Pumpernickel? BTW, that name in German means Devil Fart. Just soz you know.

Count Jerkula said...

I skip all the dancing boy stuff. wordy and boring

nonyabusiness said...

Dancing Boy blind items shouldn't exist.

Tuesdi said...

I didn't pickle anything this week, but I usually try to - however my vegetable garden is a mess. You know what is awesome pickled? EGGS. I could eat a dozen.

Geeljire said...

Keep it up Dancing Boy!

HeatherBee said...

I’m stuck trying to figure this out. All I can think is, I’m Rick James, bitch! Also, love rye bread and hate anything pickled except cucumbers.

Tuesdi said...

Also - DILLY BEANS! And pickled Asparagus!

Geeljire said...

For the rude and illiterate:

SPICY!

Tuesdi said...

The Count is Back! Its been ages.
@Heather - kudos for even trying to read it. You are one up on the rest of us.

J said...

Something you haven't discussed before?

You mean "someone who isn't you" ??

Geeljire said...

Worst thing is you're not supposed to know this but that's really just normal and expected behavior from the Bohemian Grove crowd.

Simon said...

Dancing boy blinds are the worst

Geeljire said...

Really you see there's this concerted effort to dismantle Hollywood human trafficking(SLAVERY) and these grooming/child rape networks connected inevitably to GLOBAL ones in our era of GLOBALIZATION

And you got a survivor turned rentboy turned
"Never thought I'd make it past 30 so fuck it" (Amin to that!) willing to go on record, come here and write, stick his neck out despite the looming spectre of Geffencide, someone who has serious "yo, check this shit out" dirt on powerful people...

Half of you can't read and the other half is gnashing teeth that he could make money off of this, and go off on dumb shit in the comments

It's really disrespectful and really makes you think because I expected way better from some of you

J said...

Sorry, but writing obviously distorted and self-aggrandizing blind gossip items is not "going on record." Don't be thick.

gauloise said...

Wasnt Dancing Boy a teen star in the 80s? so how could he have had leaked photos of him on the net that everyone saw ... the internet was not really in use until the mid 90s

so even if he did take 5-10 years off before going to university, even then on dial up, it took ages to load one photo on a page, let alone videos, like he says here. I remember it taking a day to download one song.

Geeljire said...

They're pretty good
Curate your own blinds if you don't like it

Neal M said...

Fucking morons can't read anything beyond the 64 character limit on Twitter.
It was brave to admit that the writer has something in his past that he is shamed for and he regrets, but that he won't allow Hollywood scum and hypocrites think they are better than him for it.
It is hopeful that he has a friend who has gone through this shit and might turn.

As for the blind at the end that the halfwits didn't make it to read - I have no idea.

Low Key said...

Hey Count! You got some half-ass wannabes posting here lately. They're lame AF but they try.

rosie riveter said...

Oh please. This is very well written and if anyone has half a gift for blinds can get it.
I don't personally.
Tricia? Cail?
There's no reason to jump right in attacking when he's actually TRYING
jeesh

Guesser said...

Someone who can for President or was vetted for VP or Judge.I'll just throw out Rubi o because ,foam parties. Yes to Dancing Boy, yes to rye bread , no to pumpernickel,yes pickles. Has anyone else made pickles pig's feet? I made them at my mother's request, didn't eat them. She never asked for them again.

Guesser said...

Fan for President,autocorrect!

Guesser said...

Ran,ran,ran!

Tricia13 said...

I haven’t followed DB closely and I think it’s too complex to maybe start? But I applaud whoever they are for sharing their story/experience . Especially if it is a means to help others and put an end to the corruption and depravity that is Hollywood

Thorne said...

DB hinted he's a former classmate of Maggie Haberman, so I'll guess NYT for the news org.
For the person with the scuttled career bid - IDK. Was Dr Ronny Jackson a bad, bad boy back in the day?

Krab said...

I don't know, maybe if DB REALLY wants to share his story and blow the lid off the depravity of Hollywood, he should consider going to the New York Times, or the Post, or the New Yorker--not put up badly written blind items in a fairly obscure website.

Rye bread must have caraway seeds or else.

Tricia13 said...

I’m assuming KC of KCand the Sunshine Band is the singer/disco band leader.
He lives in Miami PT and is gay from space

Cinnamon Stick said...

Welcome back Count. I've tried on DB but I just can't.

Sara, Making It Work said...

@gauloise,
Pictures would have been from 91,92 ish? Just before he started college. So a few years later, yes, people (especially privileged college students) were using the internet.
Definitely not unheard of. And it wasn't always dial up. We had DSL back then.

Krab said...

I started using the Internet in college in the late 80s. There were lots of us.

rosie riveter said...

Thanks Tricia! And yes, I agree there are some in the past that are very confusing and too complex to have to go back and figure them out.
I just don't think *this* one is confusing, and it's rude for people to attack when this guy has already (presumably) suffered enough.
I personally think there's going to come a time that it's revealed and we will understand it all then. And maybe he's even trying to write clearer- this attempt certainly looks as such

Sara, Making It Work said...

Ok, DB is back to the basics!
This one was interesting and personal.

But I don't have any guesses.
I thought of JT Taylor (aka Kool), Nile Rodgers (Chic), KC (Sunshine band)... but they either have no kids, or kids that aren't the right age.
To be DB's contemporary, the offspring would have to be born '72-75ish.
Absolutely no clue on the other bits.

But it was still a good read.

ALSO, sounds like he's maintaining sobriety, so good on him for that.

Tricia13 said...

👍

Martin said...

Up for a top job = Supreme Court Justice?

sandybrook said...

Meh nobody makes good breads down here except Publixs baguettes. Italian is a complete joke but less of one than bagels. I'd prefer a good rye for a sammitch over pumpernickel. But don't dislike pumpernickel.

Carrie said...

Could the kid be the son of Sly Stone?

He is an eleventh-circuit judge and former Attorney General of Alabama.

Where the fuck have you been?

cheesegrater15 said...

Anybody going to see BlacKKKlansman? It looks so good. I bet it'll be nominated for an Oscar.

Sal Salington said...

DB blinds are fiction. Not even self-consistent.

So didn't bother reading.

Enty, you need to find someone whose fiction is at least coherent.

hhstarr said...

At least this one is a blind and not a "guess who I want to hire to act in 0art #1". Or talking about his super secret agency where they train kids to take down terrorists or some crazy stuff like that. And it is worded pretty well, I dont need Cail's interpretation. But no clue of who the blind is about.

AkhaldanSolo said...

According to one his friends from back then, he often played the "son," "nephew," or "protege" of wealthy, closeted politicians, judges, and even in one case a country singer at parties in his home state.

If it's Billy Pryor Jr. pretending to be a young Johnny Cash and Karl Rove's band of Bohemian Grovers are involved this all leads back to The Franklin Scandal and the Reagen/Bush Rent Boys in DC, making Hollywood the left coast culling ground for this activity and DB was caught up in it.

And the pet names for these rent boys shows you what sicknesses they're really in to.

Batin', go away

Farmgirl said...

This was a real blind at last!

Love pickled beets
Favorite fermented is authentic Korean kimchi

Guesser said...

We have a winner with William Pryor,Jr. He was a top candidate for The Supreme Court.Akaidan Solo, first? The por n photos from the Eighties,showed up on the internet early nineties,probably. Now to figure out the musician.

T. W. said...

@Geeljire

Thank you for the summary.

Sounds like whomever this is was abused as a youngster/teen. If that is true then I understand why they sold their body.

Prayers and much love for all abuse victims.



Thorne said...

Oooo, A. Solo, good catch. Please please let this be true

mud said...

i translated latin in high school.
i went to high school in the dark ages when we still had to read the iliad & the odyssey, shakespeare, and long epic poems that haunt me to this day.
i've learned some irish which is not latin-based and harder than hell to decipher much less pronounce.
i have been forced to learn some french phrases because my french friends doesn't think it's fair that they know english and i know nothing.
i am fluent in typo.
i know quite a few dyslexics and i can almost always decipher what they write.
IF dancing boy is legit and wants his blinds to be taken fucking seriously then he needs a ghost writer because my brain shuts down trying to wade through the crap.

mud said...

and i didn't have any pickles this week, but i had a salad with a pepperoncini on top.

Tuesdi said...

@Mud :)

Guesser said...

And everyone got the food thread wrong. It was supposed to be French toast. Sweet or savory? Syrup or jam? Me, sweet crispy outside, custard inside.

yepthatsme said...

Denise Richards will be getting 4 million for appearing in RHOBH!

Tuesdi said...

@Guesser - either sweet or savory is good with me. But SYRUP.

Sara, Making It Work said...

Challah French Toast sounds delicious btw. See, he's giving us what we want.

JP said...

I'm ready to get off this Dancing Boy ride.....Enty make it stop.

Count Jerkula said...

Been around. Busy w/ work and kid.

Humor Me said...

where is that wonderful person who translates DB blinds so well?

plot said...

@Krab

"Rye bread must have caraway seeds"

It certainly must!

Rufus II said...

So is Geeljire Dancing Boy, or an incarnation of Enty? Or both? Why so offended that most everyone doesn't like the long-winded indecipherable Dancing Boy blinds?

Fnord

Amy said...

I felt this Dancing Boy was well written actually. I usually skip them but read today and felt like a bitch for complaining before. This man had a hard life. Doing this helps him. I just want him to name the evil bastards now.

Rufus II said...

And the guy upthread who said that the Dali Lama "deserves some fun" and others who are in agreement, trolls gonna troll.

Pedophiles should be given life in prison or death, in my opinion.
But accusing commenters who doubt the veracity of some of these wild ass blinds of being pedophiles is childish and stupid. Some of these blinds are outright ridiculous. How can so many people keep this kind of secret? No hints or whispers for some of them up until now? And now it's an avalanche of people. Not just the usual suspects (Spacey, Geffen, Singer) but other people as well. Not to mention all the long dead celebs who have no way of refuting any claims.
It seems that most on here will take the blinds as gospel truth without so much as a google search or any kind of idea where the publisher of the blind would have gotten such information.

I've been visiting this site since Michael K. used to link to them in the now defunct "I guess, you guess" section of DListed. The recent change was swift and drastic. It has also given rise to the many politrolls and the just plain old trolls alike(sorry, guys) on this site. The whole site is filled with outraged people who do nothing but sit at the computer accusing other people of being part of the conspiracy. It is so hard to tell who is who anymore.

Geeljire said...

Geeljire is:
1. A team!
2. A multimedia empire!
3. An industry disruptor!
4. Neither Hedge nor Enty
5. Suggesting to OPFOR that they insinuate that this website was secretly purchased by the Church of Scientology but oh wait you don't have anyone that clever in David Brock's Never Never Land because your talent pool is limited to pedophiles or awful shut ins that will type like plot all day for $15/hr

Rufus II said...

Whatever strain of weed you smoke is making you paranoid and incoherent. Not good for a blogger. Perhaps a lighter strain? Or maybe taper down a bit?
Not really sure what you are saying.
Speaking of shut-ins, you are here quite a lot. Maybe go get some sun while you can.

Geeljire said...

No one gives a fuck.

John said...

Fuck reading this guy's shit can numb your brain.

Such rambling shit. Useless.

@GEELJIRE Ayn Rand?

Stupidpervs said...

This one is better than the others actually. ..but the others ...nope

Stupidpervs said...

And funny how he's willing to name names for cash ..y'all act like he's doing this out if the good of his heart..he is not or he would be at the police station saving other children but hey it's cdan..where pedos are safe cuz everyone's to ashamed..greedy...or scared...he is not actively seeking roles so Hollywood can't black list him but his silence is solid til the right money man comes along to buy his script so no y'all stop acting like he's Jesus off the cross ...how many children were done the same way in the many many many years he choose to stay silent decades even...he needs therapy not y'all petting his pride ..he needs to know that every time he post here instead of confronting these names head on he will always be the victim which seems to be hos favorite role in life ..you are not the abused child any more your a grown man allowing more victims so no thanks on his bs blinds ..it's time for him to work thru his demons and manic behaviour and yes that's what these blinds read as manic..

Cree said...

This was one of your better written blinds. You would have saved so much more time if you had just posted the last paragraph. Everything else felt unnessicary.

Adrastia said...

"scuttled his bid"? Please use plainer English. I have no idea what that means. Is it supposed to be British slang? Old timey talk?

Also, what's up with "vetted"? All of the sudden I hear it everywhere after never hearing the term before. Who made it popular? Why is it used so much now?

So this one's about a guy who was used as the "son/nephew/ward ect..." of prominent men in the closet who didn't want anyone to know that they were gay and he was their lover? Like that guy in The Maltese Falcon?

Gelfire, you can't possibly like these blinds and are making fun of the fact that no one finds them easy or pleasant to read. It's just an AR game constructed by a victim to vent his issues. If it's real at all.

Sagan said...

I actually DID pickle something this week! Employee brought me 3 dozen eggs from his chicken coop, and I boiled all of them- to make pickled eggs! They'll be ready to eat in 21 days of sitting in pickling spices and beet juice in the back of my fridge.

Marshall Mathers said...

Omg you have a kid ? Divorced? Would explain the misogyny. Feel sorry for your poor child having you as a father. If male he'll grow up to be a rapist like you and if female, victim.
