Nerdy Bits, The Sh*t You Skipped: George R.R. Martin – Master of Surprise, Epic & Bizarre He-Man Parade Float, LEGO Modern Warfare 3 and MOAR!
Every day the internet produces an astounding amount of goodies and gems. Most hilarious, some amusing, but all worth at least a few seconds of your time. We here at Nerd Bastards try to bring you the best bits of news and nerdery the webz has to offer, with a bit of snark thrown in. But sometimes not everything makes the cut.
Monday through Friday we’ll be bringing you our inbox leftovers, our forgotten bookmarks, the nerdy bits that simply slipped through the cracks. You can submit items to Nerdy Bits by emailing us at email@example.com.
The boys of Marvel/DC would like to wish you a Happy (Belated) Thanksgiving and share what they’re thankful for. Like Ghost Rider, whose thankful for second chances.
George R.R. Martin – Master of Suprise.
Martin, flying at you with high speeds and gratuitous character death. (Dorkly)
The next installment in the LEGO video game franchise, LEGO Modern Warfare 3. War’s never been more real. (Geek Tyrant)
I can’t tell if this is awesome or blasphemous? I can’t deny mashing Lighting McQueen with the Millenium Falcon is pretty cool, but it might just cross too many lines. Mainly using a character from what’s obviously the worst Pixar film. (Which, isn’t really a knock on Pixar, because a bad Pixar movie is still a really good movie.) (Nerd Approved)
They seriously do not make parade floats this awesome anymore. Honestly, I would love to have been a fly on a wall of the room where the planning committee sat down to brainstorm this Masters of the Universe parade float from the 1986 Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade. (io9)
Doesn’t matter if you’re a brony or not, there’s no denying these “ponies” are hot. (Fashionably Geek)
I can’t think of anything better to do with your time than watch these videos from a recent performance of Aliens on Ice. Yes, you read that correctly. Aliens. On. Ice. (Fashionably Geek)
Let’s check in with what’s happening in the wide world of Skyrim, shall we?
No better way to keep your head warm this winter and signal to others you are Dovahkiin, and the soul and blood of the dragon dwells within you. (Fashionably Geek)
Listen to Youtubers Lara and ViolinTay’s wonderful duet of the Skyrim theme on piano and violin. Lara adds some hauntingly beautiful vocals as well. It’s basically the best thing you can watch other than Skyrim itself. (The Mary Sue)
Here’s hoping you had a fantastic Turkey Day! Head over to Geek Tyrant for more hilarious Thanksgiving/Star Wars scenes.
