To further this thread, I would deem the King Cobra stage last night, the Mines of Moria: once, possibly bountiful and technologically superior but now resigned to decay and overrun by uh, you know.. staff.

Sounds like somebody's been dipping into that Shire weed...

Actually, Jeff, the Dwarves and the Elves had quite the tumultuous history--using the word "idolize" to categorize their relationship is tenuous at best. Their fabled feud is outlined in Tolkien's history of Middle Earth, The Silmarillion (you might recall Gimli's underlying hostility towards Legolas in the first part of the Trilogy). In fact, the Elves were quite fond of the Dwarves' discovery of mithril, and sought heartily to obtain it from them.

But, yes, Fleet Foxes are great.

You're absolutely right, LB. I was thinking specifically of Gimli's love for the Lady Galadirel. It was the Hobbits who idolized the Elves once they met them.

Yes, there is no doubt that Gimli was fully entranced by the Lady of the Wood. All the little guy wanted was a shock of her golden hair...

"i've been listening to fleet foxes while reading the silmarillon and it is incredible"

Try 3 Inches of Blood instead, they're total D&D Hobbit Rock.
