Blind Item #8 - A Dancing Boy Blind

Another day, another random d/l discovery: my other first year college roommate - known at the time for setting the next door kid's bed and belongings and nearly the building on fire (no, not very original, or especially funny); the first one was the one who introduced me to the cellist, and subsequently died of an o/d. It appears he married a Muslim woman and converted to Islam. Wonder what he'll think of the dancing boy saga...

I was listening to an A.J. Benza podcast, and he was talking about Nathan Forrest Winter. It made me think of DB...

Humor Me said...

I'm eating donuts.....

Dirty D said...

Not much like the rest of us probably. Can we stop these now please? No-one cares

Megley said...

Hmmm. Donuts.

Ophelia said...

How is their conversion relevant to the saga?

As previously mentioned I haven't read all of DB (I fell off the wagon a few months in then just started reading them again) so I'm assuming I've missed an important detail that connects this!

Megley said...

And I join the chorus of those who really don't care about these horrible fan fiction DB blinds.

LA Native said...

I just ate some coconut greek yoghurt and picked some prickly pear fruit in my garden (also limes) which I plan to experiment with later in a margarita. It seems the nectar is a hangover suppressant! Must try.

Ophelia said...

LA Native - that margarita sounds amazing! would definitely be refreshing in the heat we have in NYC right now

Glitter said...

I am wishing ill-will to Dancing Boy.

DrGonzo said...

mmm soup today

Cree said...

How can he think anything about the db saga if he died of an OD? These are supposed to be blinds not confessionals. If his wife has some significance maybe put more emphasis to that fact.

LA Native said...

@Ophelia it does, doesnt it? Wish I could post pics. I am in NE Florida and you are actually hotter than us right now, I feel your pain.
Here is a link about the fruit

rosie riveter said...

Could you and the others choose to not read them?
Or is it, like, a mandatory thing you must complete on threat of death?

Tuesdi said...

I want one of those Margaritas, @LA Native. That sounds pretty tremendous. Maybe if I have 4 or 5 I can tolerate these DB Blinds.

rosie riveter said...

You sound nice.

Tuesdi said...

@LA Native I just followed you on twitter, so that I can see pics of your Margarita, later. (Nice feed btw - colorful).

Amy said...

I wonder if 'Dancing Boy' reads these comments? It's like the media in the UK. Once he was loved and now we've destroyed the poor bloke....

SCORPIO19D said...

what is dancing boy

LA Native said...

Thanks @Tuesdi! Back atcha!

Ophelia said...

@LA Native those look difficult to eat but good! And yes - my old apartment is not equipped for this type of heat.

@Amy I've wondered that as well. So many like this one don't seem to connect though that I'm wondering if Enty just asks for something each day because of the comments that they generate.

Don said...

Are the DB blinds not clearly labeled in the titles for everyone?

Unknown said...

Is dancing boy trying to alienate his greatest defender Geej the tiger?🤔😮

BLT sandwich, no B, no L.
‘‘Tis the season

Guesser said...

It is two different roommates, one O'd, the other converted to Muslim. But are either of these people famous or infamous?

J said...

That's great, Dancing Boy. How's the auditioning of beautiful young boys coming along?

loopymommy said...

Prickly pear margaritas are amazing.

sandybrook said...

Philly cheese steak, Cole slaw, buffalo fries, pickle and a bottle of sparkling ice (flavored club soda) for lunch. Try on Thursdays for 1 enormous meal and nothing else the rest of the day to eat. This worked.

Thonker said...

Just a random thought but are any DB blind items ever gonna be revealed?

Cree said...

"The first one" suggest it's going to be about at least two people but "the first one" + "he married" makes it sound as if he's talking about the same person. I dont even think DB knows whats going on half of the time.

You could check around to try and find out who ken had for a college roommate, but it's not clear why we should bother.

Donna said...

@LA Native The Costco business center near where I live sells cases of little bottles of prickly-pear lemonade. Perfect with 4 ounces of tequila. Ima take a look at your Twitter, your homegrown ones sound amazing!

All my garden has is giant zucchini and shit loads of green tomatoes due to the smoke from all the wildfires nearby.

Green tomato recipes?

cc423 said...

Why are these never revealed? Wait... I know the answer.

Cree said...

I have a few questions. Are most db blinds written my multiple persons (or personalities?)

http://www.crazydaysandnights.net/2018/02/blind-item-13-dancing-boy-there-is.html?m=1


Some seem so coherent:

Or is "Enty" responsible for butchering them?

"I have left this one as is from the person who sent it in because I think their voice is important to the context."

Cree said...

written by* not "my"

Simon said...

Having roasted red pepper cauliflower pizza.

Jimbonius said...

after that lunch sandy, not many calories left for the day lol

sandybrook said...

Simon are cauliflower crusts good? Do they hold up to the sauces and toppings and can they be folded? Any pizza slice that cant be folded is a no good pizza.

sandybrook said...

Damn right Jimbonius. I suspect it was at least 2500 calories.

Tuesdi said...

I've been wanting to try cauliflower crust pizza.

LA Native said...

@Donna good to know on both parts! I was at Costco two days ago, dammit. Its not super close by.

We make fried green tomato eggs benedict here at my weekend pool parties and use buttermilk for a dredge and cajun spice in the flour mixture. They are really damn good.
also 4 ounces of tequila...hahaa that sounds xlnt. I jalapeño infuse my mixing tequila so this afternoons prickly pear margarita will have that in it, too. I cant wait! Its a bit early yet for me.

GEORGE CLOONY MUSLIM CONVERT

Mrs Meat said...

My goodness, I've been missing the party. I see those DB headlines and just scroll past. I can't even fight a fork through the dreary word salad served up in these 'blinds'.

I had to see what everyone was talking about and realised this must be where the CDAN Recipe page lives. Been meaning to click on that for a while.

I'm having a nice cup of tea. Actually, you know what, it isn't that nice. It's been reheated twice and tea isn't the same since I gave up dairy. Just bravely sipping on.

J F said...

What does anything you just said have to do with donuts??

Please stay on topic!!!

J F said...

I thought DB stood for douche bag. Not sure what that has to do with donuts and margaritas? Which is kinda an interesting combo. There is the local Chinese Food and Donuts place I've always wanted to try though

Jimbonius said...

The cauliflower crusts I've seen are still full of carbs and calories. Not worth it - might as well have the real thing.

J F said...

Just another random thought.... Would anybody really care?

J F said...

My roommate back in college had cauliflower ear from too much wrestling....

Shaddup Mimsey said...

@LA Native, I followed you too and retweeted the Bee story. I loved it!

Amy said...

Cauliflower ears are bizarre! Rugby players get them too. They freak me out a bit....

HeatherBee said...

Love your pic Shaddup. I went from Awww to Whoah back to Aww again! That’s funny.

Sara, Making It Work said...

@cc423
Dancing Boy often reveals them himself in subsequent blinds.

Sara, Making It Work said...

@Guesser
Two college roommates. The second converted to Islam.

The first one he has mentioned before: The roommate ended up hanging with and I think selling drugs to Michael Alig & the Club Kids back in the day. He managed to avoid jail (I think) and get clean at some point, and worked as an addiction counselor. Sadly, he relapsed and OD'd. Or should we say "OD'd" because it was unexpected and suspicious.
(The cellist refers to Zoe Keating, who was friends with this roommate.)

Cree said...

Forgot which thread I was in sorry.
Carl's jr just release fruit loop donuts.

https://people.com/food/froot-loops-donuts-fruit-loop-carls-jr-hardees/

They look disgusting, but I'd give one a try if I was ever forced back to carl's jr.

Akbar Johnson said...

He will probably think the "Dancing boy saga" is a huge load of horseshit like everyone else.

RowdyRodimus said...

Dancing Boy Funko Pops! to debut at New York City Comicon.

Shaddup Mimsey said...

@Heatherbee, thanks, I think it's pretty cool too!

Stupidpervs said...

He will think you sold out ..won't go to the cops but will make a movie to line your pockets ..you ever noticed that these predators pick the right victims ..they don't pick the ones who go to the cops they pick the greedy self serving assholes like Feildmen cuz they know these weaklings will not fight back or report them and know they are a cash based personality like Rose..like Asia..like Db...like Feildman a little cash and they don't care about the next victim..so yeah that's what he's thinking sell your soul again for a little fame and money me personally I would dig ditches before allowing myself to be the victim my whole life

Village Guru said...

@Guesser said...
It is two different roommates, one O'd, the other converted to Muslim. But are either of these people famous or infamous?

Their fame doesn't matter, they're just set decoration. Dancing Boy began his blind with "Another day, another random d/l discovery: my other first year college roommate..." then DB wraps it up with "Wonder what he'll think of the dancing boy saga...".

Those are the only statements worth considering, and it seems to me he just gave a little background, ending by musing about what his former roomie will think about him once everything is revealed in his saga.

His phrasing in the first part though, "random d/l discovery", gives me pause to wonder. I wonder if the "d/l" part applies to his now-Islamic former roomie.

Sara, Making It Work said...

Ooh, that's seen interesting question. The other roommate was openly gay, but I wonder about this one now. 🤔

AprilInParis said...

Yep; I agree with everyone guessing the converted muslim was once gay and DB is wondering aloud if the convert will have a problem with being outed in his book/movie.

@LA Native, I followed you, too!
