LL The Interesting

LL's name stands for Lord Loser, which I refuse to acknowledge. I've even played around with the idea of renaming him. Like maybe to Hairy Harry... Or Mountain Man. Hey, MM is close to LL. There is nothing loserish about LL, which is why his name bothers me so much. In fact, LL has some of the coolest stories I've ever read on the blogosphere. He should have his own show on the Discovery Channel. Not like animal porn or anything either, a LEGITIMATE one. We should make a petition.

The first time I visited LL's blog, I was captured by this line. "Did I ever tell you about the time that I helped pack a dead woman out of the middle of nowhere?" That pause was your mind stuttering. You can read the full story
here, here and here. Then there was the time he rescued two old people who were stranded and apparently suffering from dementia. LL, I should probably mention that you're going to have a whole lot of search terms for "dead" and "body" this month. Don't get freaked out, OK? It was just me.

One of my favorite posts on LL's blog is the one about his infamous anonymous commenter. The
post was approximately 21,524 words long. Which, I think, counts as a novella. I ate a sandwich in the time it took me to scroll through it. I'm talking like a foot-long. Another thing that I like about LL is that he's humble. The last time I paid him a compliment he called me sweet, followed by the word liar. It was totally uncalled for, but it made me giggle like a school girl. He really does look handsome all cleaned up.

LL lives in Idaho. Which the thought of visiting, frankly, scares the shit out of me. I get lost thirty minutes from home... Where there are gas stations... and MAPS. I can't imagine what would happen to me out in the middle of nowhere. I would probably run out of gas and then get eaten by a gigantic moose. Are there moose in Idaho? Fine, bear. Whatever. But knowing that there are kind and capable people like LL out there makes me feel a little better about my chances. Which may not sound like a huge compliment, but it is. It really is.

LL Is...
(According to Google)
1. ...an
outdoor apparel company.
2. ...a second rate
rapper.
3. ...a famous
Psychometrician who contributed to the study of human intelligence.
4. ...a "
top-down parser for a subset of the context-free grammars." HUH?

Now see LL, was that so bad?

Have a great weekend Homebloys!

I think LL is probably one of the more original bloggers on the entire internet. And, folks, that is not easy to accomplish.

Moose are rarely carnivorous.

Moose are rarely carnivorous (emphasis on rarely... once they taste human blood...) but those fucker's will charge trains! Honest! For real!
They usually lose. (Usually...)

I will have to drop over to LL's and read his blog.

Speaking of moose, well, yes, but anyway this is on my sister's blog, I have no idea where it was filmed, but it is funny!

Ooh! I likes his blog. Not as much as I likes yours, but he's good! He might grow on me though . . .

OK An endorsment from you and I HAVE to go and read.

Hey Tink, I was thinking. I'm sorry if I sounded crass not too long ago. I'm socially defunct and I apparently bump my head often.

I see ll's comments on another blog I visit - fermicat - and I love how dry his humor is.

I even teased him once or twice in the comments but he never yelled at me :(

this was sweet tink

I missed his blog too. Usually, I check something out when another "good blogger" (aka: YOU) recommends them. :)

I've not experienced LL's blog until your post today, I headed right on over to check him out and of course now he's bookmarked. My google reader is so chop-full of must read blogs now, I can barely keep up with my school reading assignments! thanks for the 4-1-1 on LL!

 
At 11 August, 2008, Blogger LL said...

Now look at what you've done Tink...

People will be failing classes, and I've even got people wanting me to yell at them now. ;P

Uhhh... I'm kind of stuck on the fact you put "sweet" in there to describe him. Do you know a different LL? Is this bizarro world? Is this Pylea?
But yes, most definitly interesting. And occassionally gross.
