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 nerdybits@nerdbastards.com.

It’s a regular ‘ole “Battle of the Sugar Plum Sabers” in this audition video for Santa’s elves. Who knew it could be so cutthroat to snag one of those mall jobs. (The Mary Sue)


Speaking of lightsabers and the holidays, you should totally be adding these lightsaber umbrellas to your wish list. Available at Entertainment Earth. (Nerd Approved)


And don’t forget to send out some cards. What could be better than these awesome Star Wars themed cards from Patrick McQuade. Available at his Etsy store.


Last week we shared a video of an incredible Diablo II cosplay. It was a work in progress, but now Joshua Smith’s masterpiece is complete. It’s astonishing! (TDW: Geek)


All right, so as impressive as that Diablo II costume is, these lovely ladies posing as Sif and Loki would be a Nerd Bastard’s favorite any day. (Fashionably Geek)


Listen as Kristin Stewart retells the story of the very first Christmas. Okay, it’s not really Kristin Stewart but she pushes her hair back and sighs enough how can you tell the difference? (The Mary Sue)


The original Rocketeer. (Fashionably Geek)


I find it kind of surprising there have been no officially licensed Doctor Who chess sets. But who cares when the fans can make awesome shit like this! I particularly love the Adipose and Daleks as pawns (even if I must admit the Daleks are a little too tough to be pawns.) (TDW: Geek)
