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.

Get ready to nerd out nostalgia style. Here’s the trailer for Drew: The Man Behind The Poster, a documentary about legendary poster artist Drew Struzan. You may not know his name, but trust me, you know his work.
Let’s be honest, most ‘Reality TV’ bears no resemblance to the reality we live in, and it STILL sucks. How about we expand to more exciting realities! “BAMF Girls Club” (a parody of Oxygen’s reality show Bad Girls Club) shows us the shocking secret lives of Bella Swan, Hermione Granger, Katniss Everdeen, Buffy Summers, Lisbeth Salander and Michonne.
