Billiam's rise and fall and rise

I noticed that very few of my friends are friends of Robont, so for the few of you that are, sorry to be redundant.

billiam is infamous on LJ, and he "died" back in January as I recall. He's alive again, and posting the usual hilariously bad shit. But, he is somewhat famous outside of LJ now. Yahoo Internet Life has an article about his first incarnation, before he was unmasked. I find him less entertaining now that I know for sure that he is a joke. The ambivalence before was kind of cool. Most times, I assumed he was a huge fiction, just playing with people. Other times, he seemed almost real. Now that we all know he's a character, does that diminish the interest his posts hold? Does he no longer have hordes of nubile women sending him boobshots? These are the important questions of our time.

Billiam
That's actually why I didn't have him on my friends list before - it was too much work to read. He can be entertaining, but ouch my brain!

Re: soooo
Oh, shoot. It's all in the article. I remember when he "died" though. All the hardcorescotti friends and billiam friends popping up with attitude to spare. It was almost as entertaining as lianna's Nekkid Xmas 2000. :-)
