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: This steampunk Poison Ivy, photographed by Sebastian Jespersen , comes from that wonderful steampunk super hero group roaming around Comic-Con. Be prepared to see them make the rounds all week as some of the top notch cosplay from the con. (CBM)
That’s right, Game of Thrones Mario map. There’s Yoshi on Dragonstone and you’ve gotta travel to Pyke via pipe. I love it. Genius. (io9)
Yup, you’re Watchmen toaster makes Rorshach toast. And you though Before Watchmen was a corporate cash grab. But I do hear it’s good with beans. Preferably canned and cold. (Bleeding Cool)
Game of Thrones House Sigil cupcakes, for eating when you’re piloting Mario through Westeros. Created by The Regali Kitchen, you can see a recreation of the opening sequence with cupcakes on Laughing Squid.
Speaking of Game of Thrones, yeah, sorry very heavy GoT Nerdy Bits today. But this video you’ve gotta see. This guy can perfectly mimic multiple characters from Game of Thrones. Guys, it’s kind of creepy. And awesome. (The Mary Sue)
I feel confidant we won’t be seeing Robin in The Dark Knight Rises, but oh, if we did, it would be hilarious! (TDW: Geek)
I’m sure next week we’ll be sharing all sorts of cosplay videos from Comic-Con, but as an appetizer, here’s an excellent on from the London Film & Comic Con. (The Mary Sue)
I like to believe Matt Smith, Arthur Darvill, and Karen Gillan had the most fun at Comic-Con out of anyone. For proof, here’s them singing Bohemian Rhapsody at Nerd HQ. (The Mary Sue)
Though, second place for most fun at Comic-Con, is Tony Stark…I mean, Robert Downey Jr. It’s so easy to get them confused. Here he surprises a bunch of kids dressed as Iron Man for a costume contest at the Marvel booth. (The Mary Sue)
And now, T-Shirts You Gotta Buy…TODAY! (Before they’re gone.)
