  • This may be my new favorite video of Neil Patrick Harris. He’s co-producing an interactive experience in L.A. called “Delusion: The Blood Rite,” and tries to take a tour of the mansion they’re using. He’s just so adorable.

  • Finally, here’s another trailer for The Hobbit.

  • Continuing the Official snicks Top 100 Lost Hits of The 80′s! Today it’s #49 … “LOVE CHANGES (EVERYTHING)” by Climie Fisher. The late Rob Fisher (from Naked Eyes) teamed up with singer/songwriter Simon Climie (who wrote “Invincible” for Pat Benatar and “I Knew You Waiting” for George Michael and Aretha Franklin) to form the short-lived Climie Fisher. Despite their individual success, as a duo they hit the Billboard Hot 100 only once, with “Love Changes (Everything)” peaking at #23 in July1988. Tomorrow’s Clue – “How Many Hearts Must You Break. And How Many Calls Must I Make?”
