Nerdy Bits, The Sh*t You Skipped: How the Sith Stole Christmas, 100 Ways to Die in ‘Skyrim’, Rejected ‘Batman’ Movie Posters 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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
It’s pretty obviouse Darth Vader is Star Wars‘ counterpart to the Grinch. And once you edit it together all nicely like OneMinuteGalatica has, well, then there’s no denying it. In fact, I hear the real reason he didn’t survive is because his heart grew three sizes that day, and therefor could no longer be contained inside his suit. (The Mary Sue)
Be relevant in almost any movie-going occasion. (Fashionably Geek)
Time for a video game theme cover medley! Featuring three covers of three classic video game themes.
First, the Super Mario Bros. theme performed on accordions in Bulgaria.
I’ve got to hand it to them, the accordian lends itself beautifully to Mario’s iconic theme. (TDW: Geek)
Now we turn to The Legend of Zelda theme performed entirely on iPads.
Lastly, a new yet no less recognizable video game theme, Portal’s “Still Alive”, performed only with floppy drives.
It’s amazing, and at the same time a little unsettling that out-dated technology can so easily replicate GLaDOS’ favorite tune. (TDW: Geek)
Han, ma bukee. Bargon yanah coto da eetha. Have a cupcake. (TDW: Geek)
If you can call yourself a Whovian at all, then I’m betting you’ve heard the tune, “Doctorin’ the Tardis” by The Time Lords. Here’s their amazingly low budget video. Seriously, look at that Dalek. Thank god fans today can make better, waaay more authentic reproductions.
Believe it or not, but these could have been the poster for the 1989 Batman. These are a sample of the rejected poster designs for films like Batman, Supergirl and the original Fright Night. Go to The Mary Sue for more.
All the news you need to know from the land of Skyrim,
Did you know there are over 100 ways you can die in Skyrim?
How many ways have you met your demise? I bet it wasn’t anywhere as cool as this,
Like a boss. Dude shoots arrow in the air and then has time to chill on a bench while waiting for his victim to die. Whoa. (TDW: Geek)
And lastly, if you’re not getting your Skyrim fill in game, every book found in the game is now available for Kindle and Nook.
