STEPHEN COLBERT ROCKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Dis you see it, hobbitgrrl?!?!?!?! He commented on a news feature that was on CNN (I think) about the 6/6/06 phenomenon, that had a drawing of the devil. So what? Well, I'm looking at that picture (it was just the head, in dull browns and black) and thinking how familiar it looked... like a balrog... but, no, that's just my LOTR bias showing. OMG... I forgot what an LOTR geek Stephen is. HE SHOWED THAT IT WAS ACTUALLY A CROPPED VERSION OF THE HILDEBRANDT BROTHERS DRAWING THE BALROG!!!! And goes on to explain the difference: the devil is an angel that decided to defy God and fell into Hell, while a Balrog is a Mayar who decided to defy the Eru and ended up in (damn, sorry - Nasgoroth?). I. love. that. man. *LOL*!!!!! I predict that hobbitgrrl had a squeegasm when she saw this.

And, yes, tootsiemuppet - feel free to correct my spellings; I never did get through the Sil. *G*

Oh yes, he is a major geek! All the more reasons for me to love him. :D He also has one of those big cave troll action figures in his office and it "helps" him make decisions on what material stays and what material goes. Hehehehe. Too awesome!

I know you knew he's a geek (*G* - I still remember Viggo saying on Jon Stewart's show that he'd had a chess set made of chocolate LOTR figures for Stephen - *L*!!!) - but did you catch this episode? I hope so!

They ended up in Utumno with Morgoth, who I imagine was badass enough to keep them as lapdogs.

I WANT A CLIP I WANT A CLIP

By the way, you remember insidian, who made that hilarious POB spam? She did the same thing for the Silmarillion, if you want to know what happens but don't feel like wading through it. ;) Here.

YES! He did mention Morgoth; can't remember if me mentioned Utumno. *showers you with points* I want one, too! I wonder what would happen if you search that website with the clips - YouTV or something like that? - and put in Stephen Colbert and Balrog?

Oooo! I'll check it out - thanks! "Great Run, Jack, Run!" icon!

It will almost definitely be up on the comedy central site tonight/tomorrow. The most recent ones are here (the 666 video isn't the balrog one, though, that's one from the day of 666).
