Nerdy Bits: Steam Punk Portal Gun, Stark Kids Sing Game of Thrones Theme, Why Spider-Man Needs a Hyphen and MORE!
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: Steampunk Portal Gun by DeviantARTist batman-n-bananas (ha! that’s an awesome handle, isn’t it?). This is so awesome… I’m puking rainbows (and lemons). What’s next, Chell in a corset? [Geekologie]
Check out this new promo image of Christian Bale as Batman in Christopher Nolan’s third and final take on the Caped Crusader legend in The Dark Knight Rises. He looks pissed! Did Bane insult his mother? [GeekTyrant]
Ever wonder why Spider-Man has a hyphen in his name? Well here’s why. [TDW]
One of the special features from the Game of Thrones Season 1 Blu-ray release is a vocal cover of the show’s opening theme provided by Sophie Turner, Isaac Hempstead Wright and Maisie Williams (aka the Stark kids). Awesome, but call me when Hodor’s vocal rendition comes out. [Blastr]
San Diego Comic-Con Badges for 2012 went on sale recently. Badges sold out in 1 hour. 1 fucking hour! Here’s a funny video from our friends at Aggressive Comics who documented the experience (actually, it’s a parody and wasn’t shot in real time). [Geekgasm]
Portland, OR band Kiss Kill put together a stop motion music video for their single “High School Drama” featuring ALL of the figures from the original vintage Kenner lineup (including the last 17 and blue Snaggletooth). It’s a top-tapping beat w/ Star Wars toys. What more can you ask for? [Thanks to Jeff Ouano for the tip]
