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: Shanoa Nebulaluben does an excellent job bringing Satele Shan from Star Wars: The Old Republic to life. And who wouldn’t choose a double-sided lightsaber, they’re so obviously more badass. I don’t know why more Jedi/Sith don’t use them? Is there some kind of liability I’m missing? Photography by Rubén Madrid and Jesús Clares. (Fashionably Geek)
What better way to tell your sweetie you care than with an RX-78 Gundam bouquet? Mobile Suit love is real love. (Nerd Approved)
This is one clown you don’t want to meet in a dark alley. Okay, I wouldn’t want to meet any clown in a dark alley, but especially not assassin, Hellequin, seen here cosplayed marvelously by MadameSpontanious and photographed by Senta Gohr. More images at Fashionably Geek.
Dude…Ewok Dog. Ewok costumes should be mandatory if you’re pet looks like an Ewok. The same goes for pets that look like Wookiees, Banthas, Tauntauns. You got a pet that looks like it could be in Star Wars, you make that pet dress the part. (TDW)
Cracked.com’s most recent list is eye-opening and hilarious. Think about that Marauder’s Map, invasion of privacy much? And is a magical education really an education? Do they learn math and science beyond the 7th grade?
Skyrim season comes to end as we venture into Spring with Mass Effect 3. I wonder what video game will keep us glued to our screens and not outside enjoying Summer? (Dorkly)
The cast of Game of Thrones ROCK OUT in this picture from EW. This actually hurts my head. I just can’t disassociate these people from their characters. It’s like I’m witnessing some crazy fanfiction brought to life. But you know what? I bet Daenerys and Cersie would be wild party girls if, y’know, they didn’t want to see each other dead and all that. (The Mary Sue)
Arnold is back with another brilliant audio commentary. This one is from Terminator 3, the “best” of the Terminator films making this commentary extra special. (io9)
After Hours debates a truly pressing topic, is Mario a here or a douchebag? And, I’ve got to hand it to them, I don’t know how I feel about that plumber anymore. His past is a little sketchy when you really start to think about it. (Cracked)
