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 another Star Wars Stands Up 2 Cancer video featuring Bill Hader, Seth Rogen, Andy Samberg, Emma Stone, Aziz Ansari, Jaime King, Zach Galifinakis, Ken Jeong, and Samuel L. Jackson. This one goes in a slightly more serious direction as the stars talk about how cancer has affected them. But don’t worry, there are still plenty of dorky lightsaber gags.
Every week Comics Alliance will feature the best cosplay around. This week they featured a really top notch cosplay team-up, Daria Morgendorffer and Jane Lane. Wow, haven’t thought about this show in forever!

Jumping into spoiler territory here. If you’re not caught up on The Walking Dead, skip this next bit.
Vulture has edited together the entire search for Sophia saga from the second season of Walking Dead in two minutes. She was like the MacGuffin to kill all MacGuffins because by the end, I didn’t care about her anymore. When they did find her though? I have to say they impressed me by going in that direction. To watch her final moments again click here. (io9)
