RE: [mythsoc] Ring around the eyeball. (HeeHee)
- I never saw Sauron as being an "EYE", in the way
CBS wasn't an "Eye". That was just his LOGO.
(I still have a "gate pass" from when I worked for CBS
in '70s as a receptionist. I amended it to be a pass
S. must've had some more fully amorphous
form in the Third Age, I'd thought. Even if he wasn't
much more than a "brain" a-la-Hideous Strength.
At one point I sorta pictured him as a mutated T-Rex.
Have Fun with it.
