The Confectionery - 4

These are the things that I think are great.  So great that I want to sing about them.

There are celebrities that never interact with their followers/fans, instead tweeting about appearances or upcoming movies or albums.  This cannot be said of Nathan fact, I don't know if any celebrity has as much fun with twitter.  If you're not following @NathanFillion (now best known as Castle, but in my heart forever as Firefly's Captain Mal), get on it.  A day after Matthew Lewis, aka Neville Longbottom, tweeted a photo of himself & Nathan hanging out (a nerd girl dream if ever there was one), Nathan created a scavenger hunt of sorts for his London followers.  He tweeted "Ok, London. I left you a treat. Tweet a pic when you find it.", accompanied by this photo:

An hour later, a fantastic Serenity keychain (signed by Nathan) was found by a guy with Firefly characters painted on his headphones.  Does anything make me more happy?  Not right now.

Those are ridiculously amazing, & apparently made by @Bobsmade.  WELL DONE.

Later that day, Nathan hid a Dr. Horrible item, & when the first follower to reach that spot found nothing, Nathan tweeted: "Some heathen must have grabbed it. Tell you what. I’ll leave a package where only you can get it. Tomorrow good?"  The guy goes above & beyond awesome, & I'd just like to point out that he is Canadian & should probably be our King.

Celebrate his awesomeness with a scene/song from Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog, just because.


This new "want" of mine is a mashup of The Beatles' Yellow Submarine art & Serenity (captained by one Captain Mal, of course).  It is glorious - although I suggest getting it in brown, because duh.  You can buy it here.

The face-eating zombie puppies are coming.  And you won't run away because they're too damn cute.

For the first time ever, LEGO has created a haunted house, & it is gorgeous.  Their new Monster Fighters line currently has a Ghost Train, a Vampire Castle & a Mad Scientist's Lab, but coming in September is this thing of beauty:

Yes, please.

As an enormous R.E.M. fan, it was lovely to see this video of a trip to Athens, Georgia, the birthplace of R.E.M.  Many sites that are integral to the history of R.E.M. are featured, among them:

Weaver D's, the restaurant with a familiar slogan.

The kudzu patch from the cover of their debut album, Murmur.

The trestle from the back of that album.

The video can be seen here, & it is a must for any fan of music history.

There isn't much that needs to be said about this.  It is hilarious, & I am in love with Nathaniel - & just this once, I don't mean Fillion.

Those were my favourite internet sweets of the past week.  Come back next week for more goodies!
