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.

Imagine the opening sequence of Raiders of the Lost Ark as piece of stop motion animation. Okay, now watch this clip of the opening sequence of Raider of the Lost Ark as stop motion animation by Jeff Gurwood. Yeah, I don’t know why I had you imagine it first, but this stop motion recreation is brilliant is it not? (io9)

Just about everyone’s favorite doctors from television and movies collected in head jars. These guys could be the greatest super team ever! Pick up this Doctorama t-shirt at RedBubble.

 

Speaking of Doctors, particularly the Time Lordy kinds,

Right now at Orbital Comics in London they have a collection of different nativity displays. This one, as you can tell, features incredibly awesome cardboard cut-out constructs of Doctor Who by Ryan Hall. Check out more photos at Bleeding Cool. And look for them show off Ryan’s He-Man, Superhero and Star Wars displays later today.

 

After a successful Beta for the PC, Gotham City Imposters has begun the Beta signup for Xbox 360 and PS3. Check out the latest trailer which makes this game look like a blast. I’ve gotten over the whole, “But wait, why would followers of Batman uses guns?” and am excited to start blowing people up while I deck out my character is kick ass Batman or Joker swag. The game releases January 10th. (Comics Alliance)

 

Mind blown. I will never look at the Autobot’s logo the same way again! (TDW: Geek)

 

You’re familiar with Krampus, right? He’s a buddy of good, ‘ole St. Nick who travels around on Christmas Eve stealing away the naughty children. He’s also a scary as fuck as demon. Well, he’s a big hit in European countries like Austria and Switzerland, where the folktale is celebrated like this, with an absolutely terrifying Krampus parade. Merry Christmas all!

 

Finally, I leave you with this, world renowned cellist, Yo-Yo Ma on the floor of a bathroom giggling at a wombat. I don’t know either.
