Blind Item #8 - A Dancing Boy Blind

Dunno if I'll actually end up using any of what I sent you yesterday - at least not in the first project, and more specifically not as monologue - but I thought this would be fun to share (just wrote it today). It concerns the person who will be introducing me a the beginning of the one act and its adaptation. (The secret kid brother part is a reference to the fact that in this secret global elite, you're assigned family members - Henry and Christina will not only play my teen likeness's parents in the back in the day storyline, but also his secret parents today.)

Top secret for now, but here it is:
Good evening. As you may know, my name is **** ********, and I'm a former child actor turned adult actor of mostly tv, including two long-running series on the theme of law and order. What you may not know is that I'm also a member of a secret global elite, or rather its better half - in the Hollywood branch.

Recently, our unit was activated for the first time in thirty years, to protect the life of one of its members – the young star of a certain movie, back in the day, that was abused on set, and off, and the project ultimately shelved. Against the wishes of our patron, Genstar Capital Chief Jean-Pierre Conte, as well as all common sense, he'd been telling his story at the Hollywood gossip blog, Crazy Days and Nights. This quickly aroused the interest of our enemies, including his abusers, who would like to silence him for good.

That's why we're here in (the place I live now), working as janitors at the local tv station. Let me introduce you to my colleagues, and team mates. One is a former child actor turned adult actor and comic, known best for his scene-stealing role in a 1980s sit com. In it he played opposite his foreign-born mentor, with whom he was often at odds. Next is a former child actor turned adult musician, known most for his appearance in a music video from the same decade. In it, he plays himself at the time – a skateboarder.

Which brings me to the dancing boy himself – the cause of all our troubles. I could introduce him by his stage name, half of which he shares with me, but because he's such a pain the backside I'll introduce him by his hated secret codename, Bunny.

Everyone, meet my secret kid brother, ***, and his fellow dancing boys.

(Enter us three...)

The idea is that I'm due a ten minute break at my job (remember: I've been under cover as a marginally employed/homeless person for years, at the behest of our patron/master) and I use it to tell this story.

I found some vintage Barbara Cartland novels in a charity shop earlier. Who else has a trashy secret vice? Ooh, I'm going to enjoy those books with a nice cup of tea.

MontanaMarriott said...

Enty, can you reveal the Aretha Franklin Blinds now? I want to know if i was correct in guessing she was the long rumored icon who had the child with her father?

sandybrook said...

Everything he posts here seems to be top secret anyone seem to notice that?
Today is Friday whatcha doing for fun after y'all get off from work today?

Brayson87 said...

Jeez could someone not afford to pay the Rentboy so they let him post blinds on their site?

sandybrook said...

Too soon Montana please? I know that's what he usually does right away but no, not with this legend please?

Carlina Colon said...

Enty said he would reveal the rest of the cropped photo today. Where is it?

Moose said...

@Montana - that story has been around for so many years, but my guess is it would not be revealed while the child/children are living. Aretha famously has never revealed the father of her first two children, both of which were born when she was in her teens.

There are also some "stories" about the fire at her home that destroyed so much of her archives.

Dancing boy screams as someone who is on disability and spends his days smoking weed and writing letters of complaint to random websites

cc423 said...

Poor Aretha... She did not have easy early years. The fact that she rose to such heights is a testament to her strength and talent.

sandybrook said...

Maybe within the next 90 minutes Carlina that's when the rest of the reveals come in.

rosie riveter said...

As opposed to smoking weed and posting on CDAN all day? Phew, at least all you are better than DB.

Thia said...

On Twitter, Enty implies he's going to reveal the cropped photo on IG. I can't wait to see if it is CGM!

Carlina Colon said...

@sandybrook true, it would probably be the last one of the reveals

Carlina Colon said...

@Thia that's my guess too

Sal Salington said...

Dancing Boy fiction, did not read.

Geeljire said...

What's it like to post this every day?

Scandi Sanskrit said...

Dude. Is it really such a good idea to be sharing this much about a film that hasn’t been made let alone released? I’m not sure what you’re trying to do here.

But what do I know. 🀷🏻‍♀️

Donna said...

Trashy secret vice: cigarettes and gossip sites
Fun after work plans: IPA, grilling dinner at home, couple time. And pickles.

A said...

Spend months away from this site, and now apparently a pizzagater infowars minion is now a dancing boy acting special? This site is something.

Donna said...

Sandybrook, plans?

sandybrook said...

+1 Donna IPA sounds good

Scandi Sanskrit said...

All my vices are trashy, none are secret. πŸ˜ŽπŸ˜˜πŸ’‹

Donna said...

@A yes!! I used to actually try to solve these, but I gave DB up for the Forrest Fenn riddle instead. At least I have a slim chance at real treasure!

J said...

There's gonna be a movie about me too, and all the famous people I know.

It'll be a total blockbuster.

Difference is, I'm not gonna troll for young handsome boys to audition.

Susan Finley said...

my name is = Ricky Schroder?

Donna said...

+1 Sandybrook on IPA. More bitter more better!
+1 Scandi πŸ˜†πŸ€£πŸ˜‚ I guess I outed myself!

The Raving Badger said...

I hate these blinds. My spouse has a gay, schizophrenic, cross-dressing drug addicted hair dresser once. He could never complete a thought and was essentially useless to speak to. These blinds remind me of him. Mark? Is that you?????

Tuesdi said...

@Sandy I WISH I was getting out early. It is NOT a long summer in Maine, but it tends to be perfect and I wish I could enjoy more of it. We are headed to our lake camp which is just down the road a few miles so pretty nice! Just need to get some groceries and then go load up the dogs. YOU?

J said...

I think it's Terry the roller-skating dude from Reno 911.

canroadrunner said...

These DB blinds are getting to be nothing more than masturbatory ego pumping delusions.

Krab said...

This is my trashy secret vice, along with slash fiction. sigh.

VDOVault said...

I guess my trashy secret vice is reading this site ;-)

Sara, Making It Work said...

Well if he's writing at least semi-coherently, and at normal hours of the day, then at least he's (presumably) on the wagon, on his meds, and getting sleep again.
So I'm happy about that much.

Max Power said...

NO ONE FUCKING CARES. someone stop these "blinds", please.

Pumpkin said...

Did anyone actually read this ? I went straight to the comments !

Elfhaus said...

Video: REM "It's the End of the World as We Know It" with Noah Ray skateboarding
.

Gemma said...

Okay, this blind is extremely coherent and interesting, so could you guys at least TRY to figure it out? The comments section usually rocks on this site, but you guys tuck your tails for these DB blinds.

Sara, Making It Work said...

@Susan, yes, I believe that's who he is hinting at this time.

DB's current stage name ("he shares half with me") is Kendrick Schroder. He actually used to comment on these boards under that name. I don't know if he's still hanging around, and if so, if he's adopted a new blogger name or just lurking.

Sara, Making It Work said...

@Gemma, and all

I have noticed in recent DB blinds, he has actually been revealing older blinds, so if people pay attention they can see if they had been right or not. And so far, most of his blinds have been solved correctly.
In this blind, every player mentioned has come up before in some way or another .
Rick Schroder (narrator), Noah Ray (skateboarder), Brice Beckham (sitcom kid), Jean Pierre Conte (reveal of patron mentioned previously).

LA Native said...

I got more pickles and sauerkraut today but think I’ll bbq a steak in my now restored tropical Florida back yard and swim in the pool now that I am done working for the week.
Happy Friday everyone.

Charity Channing said...

ok you finally lost me.

Green Tea said...

So........... Rick Schroder (who is also undercover as a janitor) will be coming out on stage (or somewhere) to let the world know he has been "activated" to protect Dancing Boy aka Bunny aka "secret kid brother" (and 2 other dancing boys) from those who want to kill him because of everything he has exposed on CDAN?
Then the 3 DB's enter the scene and the "OG" dancing boy (who is also a janitor?) uses the 10 minute break he is owed to explain how he has "been under cover as a marginally employed/homeless person for years, at the behest of a certain patron/master"(something we should all remember, apparently)?

Is that what I just read?

sandybrook said...

Tuesdi I spent the late afternoon at my tiki bar nearby listening to music and drinking beers. Sorry I missed this earlier...

Janis said...

uh huh. interesting script. does the secret society of pedophile avengers have costumes?

is this going to be a movie or a series? but how could such a thing be filmed? the core of it is too pervy and would be exploitive of the young actors involved.

Guesser said...

@Sara,Making it Work, do you think Ricky Schroeder knows he is a big part of the story? I think all of your guesses are correct,so anyone who wants to go through some of the old DB blinds can start with that.

Sara, Making It Work said...

I have no idea. That's the $10,000 question: has he contacted all of these proposed cast and crew members, or is it wishful thinking? He has said that he met Ricky once at a Silver Spoons taping (and Ricky hit on his sister) but that's an odd way to approach an actor to be in your movie. "Hey, we met once, 30 years ago, and people used to day I looked like you when I was a kid. Wanna star in my movie/ stage play as yourself?"
He also claims to know Noah, having met him at an audition, and later was friends with his roommate. Again, it remains to be seen if these connections will pay off.
We shall see.

Gemma said...

@Sara,Making it Work, THANK YOU for lending your stable genius to this blind. This will help the old blinds make lots more sense.

Adrastia said...

Looks like the Spy Kids got the band back together! I'm imagining it's a lot like that scene with Henry Rollins in Portlandia. Only it's deep cover janitors instead of aging punk rockers driving SUVs to pick their kids up from ballet and soccer.

I'm guessing the scene stealing kit with the foreign born mentor as a co-star is supposed to be Bryce Beckham from Mr. Belvedere.
I can't think of anyone else that really fits. Although there might be and my brain just isn't working tonight.

but Mr. Belvedere being on was one of the few ways my mom could get me and my brother to stop trying to kill each other for half an hour.

The other all grown up Spy Kid is the kid from that REM video. It has to be because that's the only one that really fits.

You know, I really wish that there would have been more played straight parodies of sitcoms like The Brady Bunch movie. I'd love to see one of The partridge Family. I kept waiting for it to be made and it never happened. ;_;

Mr. Belvedere would be great as one too though. Keep them all stuck in the 80s with the bizarre concept that such an average looking family in such an average house has a live in British housekeeper.

So DB goes off on his break to write this blind. His boss probably thinks he's playing pay 2 win mobile shovelware or updating his Facebook with the mundane events of his day spent mopping floors and finding strange things lodged in the toilet.

Stupidpervs said...

Well written...πŸ‘πŸ‘thxs

Sara, Making It Work said...

@Gemma,
Thanks. I'd kind of stopped answering these because they had become rehashes in a way.
Oh, and the first paragraph mentions "Henry and Christina", also previously blinded and revealed as Henry Thomas and Christina something, can't remember her last name, the kids from Cloak and Dagger. She went to school with Dancing Boy.
*Also, if you want to know who Dancing Boy actually is, it's been posted here before. Go back a few days to DB's last blind. I posted a comment with a link that should help.

K said...

12-year-olds writing bandfic are more coherent than this shit.

K said...

Carlina Colon - He did. KStew and CGM.
