Blind Item #9 - Introducing - A Dancing Boy Blind Item

PS/D/L: And this is really strange...For months, off and on, I'd been having these visions - in my mind's eye - about a "making of" doc or short for "The Little Drummer Boy" feature. I had this reoccurring image of a young actor, late teens or early twenties, on a sound stage during the production - he was the only one I could see clearly. I knew he probably wasn't one of the leads, but that was it. It was only after I woke up this morning that I realized that this young actor/model, Solan Gunn, was him, and what the part is.

He's the third accuser of the bishop - the "betrayer" - who either leaves or escapes from the breakaway Catholic church's reform school, immediately connecting with my young likeness. (In the first feature, he steals my likeness's high school journal, and outs me in a bid to win popularity with the Cool Kids, including my nemesis - or one of them, anyhow. I end up losing my community service gig as a result, and lie about it to the headmaster. What follows is that reoccurring nightmare some people, including me, have about finding out you didn't actually graduate from high school, or whatever, and you're forced to go back. My likeness is forced to complete his community service requirement near the beginning of "The Little Drummer Boy," which is how I meet the Catholic boy, Patrick Rayner.)

Solan's character has nowhere to go - he's estranged from his family - so I let him stay at my house. He reveals what happened to him at the hands of the bishop, and given his past betrayal and other factors, not even I entirely trust that he's telling the truth. But I urge him to go to the facilitator of the local lgbt youth group - who is also a teacher at the nearby high school (I have Chad Allen in mind for this part) - and tell him about the abuse. He does, and of course the teacher is required by law to report it to authorities. The sheriff opens an investigation into the church, but the bishop has a mole in the department, and suspicion (of wrongdoing, I mean) falls back on Solan's character. His choice? Jail or back to reform school. Feeling defeated, he chooses the latter.

And on the eve of his return to the church he is kidnapped and crucified - purportedly the third victim of the satanic cult, the "betrayer." (In fact, of course, he'd been murdered by the bishop and his minions.) In future installments, he'll continue to appear in my dreams, offering support and counsel. (In TLDB, there is a dream sequence based on the gospel of Mark. My younger self dreams that Solan's character either didn't die or has been resurrected. I go to a cave in the desert, and push aside a boulder blocking the entrance, only to find an empty tomb.)

yepthatsme said...

I am convinced Enty is conducting some kind of psyops against its readers with the DB blinds! we are on to you Enty!

sandybrook said...

I'd never touch pickled herring. My father ate that shit sometimes for breakfast on top of a bagel and cream cheese.

Amy said...

😂 you made me chuckle.

J said...

Bring back insideher blind items.

Amy said...

That's made me feel slightly sick....

totaji said...

Nothing better than a jar of freshly pickled carrots, red onions and jalapeños. It’s good on everything!

Glitter said...

Dancing boy has worn out his welcome. Please, no more.

Satan 666 said...

I like pickled onions and pickled cauliflower.

Sara, Making It Work said...

Pickled ring bologna. Don't judge.

canroadrunner said...

Geez, after all this, I won't have to see the movie. I can tell from the numerous synopses that it's going to be crap. And defniitely not well written. Enouigh

LA Native said...

So we are now to guess, as a blind no less, DBs visions for new productions? Nope. Not today or any day.
If I am wanting to make a burger, I wont make it unless I have dill chips or sandwich slices. I can live without fresh tomato on a buger but not pickles. The weird thing is, I rarely eat pickles any other way.

LA Native said...

ughh *Burger

Geeljire said...

Sandy stop player hating and write your own blinds

Guesser said...

I could have made the pickles in the time it takes to read this. Not 2 in a day please.

Himmmm said...

I hope we get a third one today. Mother fucking Dancing Boy....the best thing on CDAN!

Motörhead said...

GERKINS not pickles yanks unless it’s a collective group of pickled food stuffs. And it’s courgette not zucchini!!

Brayson87 said...

Pickle packing, the industry of packaging particular pickles to be precise.

Poppymann said...

I'm beginning to think these blinds along with some of the commenters are being distributed by Right Wing operatives.

Green Tea said...

Isn't there a saying....one man's "vision" is another man's blind item?

Farmgirl said...

Brooklyn Brine pickles are the best.

PapayaSF said...

@Poppyman: No, I think Dancing Boy is a Hollywood pedo psyop to kill everyone's interest in the topic.

Lonely Bastard said...

In the name of all that is fucking holy, please stop!!

hhstarr said...

Pickled eggs are awesome. I thought everyone ate them but apparantly not. But usually only the gas station variety are good (I know, ick). And does sour kraut count, or is it not really pickled (ie does the word "pickle" need to be in the name? Love sour kraut.

Unknown said...

What else do the voices say?

RowdyRodimus said...

Dancing Boy, can, can I buy pot from you?

Me Again said...

WHAT IS HAPPENING? I feel like I am in the Twilight Zone.

Brayson87 said...

@Rowdy, was that an Animal House reference? lol

Solan Gunn is a real guy. He has a younger sister named Harper who is a child actress. Doesn't anyone give their kids normal names anymore?

I couldn't even make sense of this. a bunch of dream sequences out of the Bible?

So is the whole thing with Solan a dream or just part of it?

I'm convinced it's some kind of AR game gone wrong. You can't really play it because you can't parse the spaghetti code it's been written in.

If this were a real film it would be awful. Very pretentious and hard to follow. And any critic would just be called too stupid to understand by DB.
