Nerdy Bits: Lollipop Chainsaw Cosplay, Lazy Jedi, He-Man Is Sexy and He Knows it, Life-Size Storm Trooper Cake 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.
ABOVE: Cosplayer Jessica Nigri dressed as Lollipop Chainsaw -the zombie killin’ cheerleader with a chainsaw- during Amazing Arizona Comic Convention. Do you really need any more info than that? My nerd nub is numb. [ObviousWinner]
There’s plenty of Star Wars inspired confectionery creations out there, but this 6’4″ tall edible Stormtrooper takes the cake (lame joke, I know). Oak Leaf Cakes made this large desert for the Arisia Science Fiction Convention in Boston. I call the crotch armor! [BoingBoing]
Amy Pond with the Gotham gingers: Babs, Batwoman, etc. By artist Michael “Mic?” Magtanong.
Oh shit. He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named has been reincarnated! [Nerd Approved]
Using the Force incorrectly this Jedi is, but hey…with great power eventually comes great laziness, right? Side note: Did anybody else listen to the radio broadcast in the background? Hilarious.
YouTuber xNick1718x, who pieced together a shot-for-shot remake of the first Dark Knight Rises teaser trailer using footage from Batman: The Animated Series, has now given the same treatment to the full-length trailer. I was surprised how he managed to pull off the football scene. [TDW]
I’m a full on He-Man and The Master of The Universe fan. I also love vagina. Of course, when I admit to liking big brawny men in bondage gear -with names like Beast Man, Ram Man and Fisto- it seems to convince people other wise. I just cannot defend myself or the fabulous-ness of He-Man. Especially not when the cartoon is cut to LMFAO’s “I’m sexy and I know it”. I give up. [GAS]
Did you know oil tankers are acoustically awesome? Just listen to this nerd chanting the theme from Halo. Originally performed by a trained choir directed by Martin O’Donnell….. accurately covered by a guy in an oil chamber. Amazeballs. [Dorkly]
Because he’ll never be known for things other than Harry Potter, Daniel Radcliffe did a whole sketch on Saturday Night Live in which he played the boy wizard (again). We see an older Harry desperate to hold on to his glory days, Hagrid and Luna got married and Snape regretting that whole secretly-looking-after-Harry thing. [TheMarySue]
