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 nerdybits@nerdbastards.com.

Rock Paper Cynic has made a few hilarious stick figure comics for The Walking Dead, like the one above explaining just about every episode. There’s also Rock Paper Scissors Walking Dead Style and Who Has More Redeeming Qualities, Lori or a Broom? (io9)


Celtic punk rockers Irish Moutarde have created their own rendition of A Song of Ice and Fire‘s classic tune, “The Bear and the Maiden Fair.” Fans of the book are quite familiar with the ditty, though not this awesome rock version, but I’m sure we’ll all know it come season three of Game of Thrones. Though again, not this awesome rock version. Give it a listen! (io9)

Plan 9 Pictures added Bernard Herrmann‘s score from Alfred Hitchcock‘s Vertigo to the opening bank robbery sequence of The Dark Knight and increased its creepy factor a tenfold! (Geeks Are Sexy)

Speaking of Batman, Toronto Batman is back with another video! And this time he’s brought his pal, Darth Vader along. Uh, sorry, I mean Chad Vader, y’know, his brother. (The Mary Sue)

It’s Galaxia de Pasión, or Star Wars reimagined as a passionate Spanish telenovela. Starring, Harrison Ford es Armando, Carrie Fisher es Esmerelda, Mark Hamill es Pepe,  y Anthony Daniels es El Robot de Sexo. (Neatorama)
