First video diary for The Hobbit

Late last night Peter Jackson debuted his first video diary for the making of The Hobbit.  It's over 10 minutes long and there are a couple of neat tidbits like seeing the dwarves and Gandalf all settled at Bilbo's table for "An Unexpected Party" (sans makeup) and a blessing of the soundstage.  The biggest takeaway for me though is just a bit of deja-vu and the realisation that yes, this really is happening again, we will finally have a movie adaptation of The Hobbit.  I may have reservations about these films and I still have countless issues with Jackson's Lord of the Rings films, but today isn't the day to dwell on the negative.  Today is a day to be happy that somewhere on this planet right now Bag End exists.  How can that not make you smile?

To see the video click here.  Or, you can check it out on Peter Jackson's Facebook page.  Come back after you have seen it and let me know what you guys think.
