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*
