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
This is one awesome Black Canary tattoo. So much sass and attitude. And of course sex. Based on art by Warren Louw, tattoo artist Katie Williams of House of Tattoo in Tacoma, WA captured Canary perfectly. (Fashionably Geek)
There’s something familiar about these Craiglist listings? Hmm? Read these and more at Comediva.
Check out this sweet Portal-themed room. How fabulous. I would love nothing more if you could be occasionally mocked while you’re working. I’m sure that’s what the talking portrait of Calvin Johnson is for. (TDW: Geek)
Peek at the private lives of Earth’s Mightiest Avengers by reading their texts. For instance, did you know Thor is a fan of Disney films? Yeah, I’m not too surprised either. (io9)

Who ever said a thirst for vengeance and a love of Disney Princesses were mutually exclusive? (Fashionably Geek)
Honestly, I wish they would use this sweded Episode I trailer for the new 3D release. I think it would remind fans that while yes, 3D sounds neat, it’s still the terrible move we saw 12 years ago! (TDW: Geek)
This past weekend at Wootstock in San Francisco, geek musical act Paul and Storm performed a brand new number. It’s a musical message for George R.R. Martin, “WRITE FASTER!” You’ll need to jump ahead to about 1:30 for the song. (io9)
We’ve featured the first episode of this modern interpretation of Skyrim before and now the Grosjean Brothers are back for episode two! In it they visit the home of Gregethor, the shopkeeper. If you have any ideas for what they should do next they’re currently accepting ideas. (TDW: Geek)
Witness the slow death of a washing machine. The video may seem lengthy, but believe me, it’s worth your time. (Laughing Squid)
