These are the things that I think are great. So great that I want to sing about them.
NATHAN FILLION ON TWITTER
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 Fillion...in 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:
@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.
YELLOW SERENITY T-SHIRT
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.
BATH SALT PUPPIES
The face-eating zombie puppies are coming. And you won't run away because they're too damn cute.
LEGO HAUNTED HOUSEFor 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:
THE A.V. CLUB'S R.E.M. PILGRIMAGEAs 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.
CONAN O'BRIEN + KIDS = THE BLUES
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!
