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

ABOVE: Here’s a photo from the Star Wars Burlesque show at The Vanguard way down under in Australia. Yes, there were sexy Storm Troopers, yes there was smoking hot Slave Leia and a pack of shaved female Wookies.  [ObviousWinner]

It’s the cake, chicks love the cake. If you have a batnerd who’s celebrating a birthday (or any day for that matter) you have to do the right thing and  get them a Batmobile cake [Neatorama]

Ok, I challenge you. Name one room in your house/condo/apartment/parents basement that can not be made that much cooler with Lightsaber lamps, plus at only $110 each from, you can’t go wrong! [GAS]

It seems just about anything can be steampunk’d these days by gluing a couple of gears onto it and slapping on a vacuum tube somewhere, it is nice to see that’s not always the case. Check out the fastest man alive in the 19th century with this very awesome Steampunk Flash [TheMarySue]

Long time Princess stealing villains in the Mario franchise just got the real life photoshop treatment. Check out  Bowser and Baby Bowser in the flesh. [deviantART]

The OCD inducing antics of your average Pokemon fan just got a little more real too. check out these gym badges from Sanshee. Obviously very collectible since they are apparently sold out but don’t let that stop you, your chance to catch them all is coming back soon! [FashionablyGeek]

Annfaye Kao, 27, from Taichung, Taiwan, just earned herself the title of most dedicated and hottest Disney fan I have ever seen. She just got a full Snow White back tattoo in tribute to her favorite movie. Just looking at it has made Snow White a favorite of mine too. [MailOnline]

Over the weekend, I found myself frustrated that there are not enough piano based covers of video game music with tap dance accompaniment. FINALLY YouTube pulls through with this Super Mario World piano/tap dance routine. [Topless Robot]

And lastly, while we may never see a full fledged Hollywood Halo adaptation, with fan films like this, do we even need to? Check out the hellishly awesome Halo fan series: Helljumper- episode 1.

And now, T-Shirts You Gotta Buy…TODAY!
