Speaking of Tolkien... "The exiles on the shores of the sea, if they turned towards the West in the desire of their hearts, spoke of Mar-nu-Falmar that was whelmed in the waves, Akallabêth the Downfallen, Atalantë in the Eldarin tongue." -- "The Akallabêth" (the story of Numenor), JRR Tolkien -Stephen (Steg) "they were all in love with dying they were drinking from a fountain that was pouring like an avalanche coming down the mountain" ~ 'pepper' by butthole surfers
