Post-Ep: The Possimpible

Barney’s Blog: Italian Leather Clad Foot in the Door

Websites from last night – barneysvideoresume.com and mysteriousdrx.com (featuring a few Dr. X recordings) have both been set up by the show.

HIMYM Style identified some of the clothes from the episode here.

Recaps and reviews:

News Roundup

  • Footage of NPH getting dunked on Ellen last week has finally surfaced!
  • Variety’s Q&A with Carter Bays and Craig Thomas has been posted. Between that and Cleveland Magazine’s interview with Carter Bays, there’s a lot of talk about how much of the show is based in real life. [There's an extension of the Cleveland interview here - to see the video, you'll have to be logged out of Facebook.]
  • USA Today ran a story about the mystery surrounding the mother, with some input from Josh Radnor and Craig Thomas.
  • Rob Owen of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette answered a question about Marshall’s wardrobe.
  • NPH-Fan.com has photos of Neil at the premiere of Criss Angel’s Believe last weekend.
  • The soundtrack to Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog is currently only five dollars on Amazon, but I hear that’s just for today.
  • Audible is offering eight minutes of The Bro Code as its free listen for the week.
  • And now there are petitions: Jason Segel, cut your hair.

Correction! Also: Segel.

As commenter JB pointed out in the post-ep for Intervention, Claudia was indeed played by Virginia Williams, the same actress who played her in S1. I got my information from the CBS press release for the episode, which says Claudia is played by Michelle Gunn, but the end credits say it was Virginia Williams. (Michelle Gunn actually played Mrs. Abergast – the mother of Lily’s student who got Ted’s letter by mistake.)

And to make this post worth your while, the Elliot in the Morning website has uploaded an MP3 of Jason Segel’s call to the show this morning.

Excerpt: The Bro Code

The Bro Code [previously covered here and here] comes out on Tuesday:

Everyone’s life is governed by an internal code of conduct. Some call it morality. Others call it religion. But Bros in the know call this holy grail the Bro Code.Historically a spoken tradition passed from one generation to the next, the official code of conduct for Bros appears here in its published form for the first time ever. By upholding the tenets of this sacred and legendary document, any dude can learn to achieve Bro-dom.

You can hear a clip of the audiobook [about four and a half minutes], read by Neil Patrick Harris, here. Or: right-click, save. [Thanks to KR for the tip!]

Amazon.com posted an excerpt, which is after the jump. Continue reading →

Leftover Links

  • NPH did an interview with Out Magazine.
  • Neil Patrick Harris on NPR’s Fresh Air [August 1]
  • A clip from Buffy: The Animated Series, which never made it to air, appeared on YouTube – Alyson Hannigan voices Willow.
  • Jana Rugan and Timothy Russo, the couple who got engaged during the taping of Something Blue, got married. [Thanks, Carrie!]
  • Josh and Neil are scheduled to perform at this year’s Hot In Hollywood AIDS benefit on August 16 – you can get a feel for the event and, if you’ll be in LA, ticket information, here.
  • Neil’s episode of Sesame Street will air on August 12, according to UPI. In addition to the already-posted clip from the episode, he can be seen headbanging with Elmo in this celebrity promo for the new season.
  • There’s a decent chance we’ll see a Harold and Kumar 3.
  • Gloria Calderon Kellett has created a web series called Get Ripped.
  • Hallmark has signed a deal that will allow it to make greeting cards featuring certain Fox properties, including HIMYM. I’m not positive that the new line of cards will include HIMYM designs, but they have the option now, so we could be seeing some in the next month or so.

Web Extras from 3.19

By now I’m sure you’re all aware that lilyandmarshallselltheirstuff.com is a real site set up by the show to benefit LA Children’s Hospital – the auctions run for another ten days, so bid soon and you, like Ted, could attempt to pull off a pair of red cowboy boots.

As for guyforceshiswifetodressinagarbagebagforthenextthreeyears.com, Rorgg at TWoP has posted a near-complete translation of the song playing on the site. [FYI, the French-speaking voice is Carter Bays, and the photos are of two people who work on HIMYM.] You can download the song here.

And this week in Barney’s Blog, he educates some poor ignorant loser named Med Tosby.

Dracula’s Lament/H&K at SXSW Film Festival

Listen 4 This has the mp3 of Dracula’s Lament from Forgetting Sarah Marshall available for download.

And here’s the video of the SXSW Film Festival’s Harold and Kumar Escape from Guantanamo Bay panel last month:

Also, Josh Radnor went to see the opening of depARTed at World of Wonder – apparently, so did Damien from Mean Girls.

The Spectacals – Get Back With Robin

CBS just put out this new promo – they say the song is by “cult indie rock band The Spectacals,” but apparently “cult indie rock band” is code for “two dudes who get paid to sing songs about CBS shows.” Anyway, if you’re looking to download the song, it’s available on their MySpace.

NPH Roundup, Part A Million

NPH talked to the LA Times about butlers, Doctor Horrible’s Sing Along Blog, nightlife, and aging.

For my 30th birthday party my friends threw me a treasure hunt. I was sort of kidnapped by my friends and thrown in the trunk of a car. All day I had to accomplish tasks. . . . It was the coolest day of my life.

Full interview here.

MTV talked to Neil about the difference between Neil Patrick Harris and “Neil Patrick Harris.” Here’s the video, but definitely read the interview as well – there’s some stuff that didn’t make the video.

Audio, video, and articles after the jump.

NPH on Howard Stern (Audio), Site News

NPH’s appearance on Howard Stern yesterday: right-click and save [Remember, the show airs on satellite radio and, as such, is uncensored - you've been warned.]

In site news, I’m switching the site over to WordPress, since I’ve had it with Blogger’s recent inability to publish posts in under twenty minutes. Expect some weirdness while the change happens, and a new layout when it’s all over.
