Did you ever look up the article I suggested? :D

If you don't have a diode backwards to that you should get smoke.

As DP says, the cap is a better route. A current-limiting resistor for 120vac can be big and radiate as much power as a small incandescent lamp, making the LED pointless if you used the lamp instead!
