When I was fourteen years old I was a fat kid, I mean thats putting it blunt. I was 170 pounds. I was a heavy kid and it didn't look like I was meant for show business at all. But I had that bubbling inside of me and I wanted to sing. And I did.
"Lonely Boy" condenses and combines two films: Wolf Koenig's classic NFB documentary on Paul Anka (also titled Lonely Boy) and a classic gay porn loop from the late 70's The Summer of Kip Noll.
