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: A chain-mail bikini is totally ineffective for combat. Plus, it must pinch. Like a lot. Quite frankly, I don’t see the point of them. On the other hand, trying to spot some nippage through the weaves would be a challenging form of entertainment. I’ve been staring at Barney boobs here for an hour. Nothing. But imma keep trying.

I’ve seen TARDIS lunch boxes, towels, doors, balloons… you name it, I’ve seen it all. One thing, though, I never suspected to see was a TARDIS house shed.Seriously, who thinks this shit up? Regardless, here it is, and it’s awesome. It has inspired me to do something TARDIS themed with my yard. Maybe at TARDIS garden gnome or a TARDIS port-o-potty. [Walyou]
Filmmaker Casimir Nozkowski decided it was time to sell his entire childhood comics collection when his parents moved out of the home they’d lived in for 45 years. He boxed it all up and set up a sale on the stoop one afternoon, priced to sell. Naturally, being a filmmaker he documented the experience. It’s a respectable video, but ouch! That’s a lifetime of comics gone, in one afternoon. So sad. Couldn’t he have tried selling lemonade or something? [NerdApproved]
Elijah Wood was on Conan O’Brien the other night, during which the Lord of the Rings and Hobbit actor professed his love for Game of Thrones. He even got toe sit on the Iron throne while visiting the set in Northern Ireland. Jealous, much? [Themarysue]
Comedian and avid Star Wars fan Colin Mochrie reenacts some of his favorite scenes from the original trilogy. After watching the video, I can say that’s exactly how I remember them from the movies. Gawd, I miss Who’s Line Is It Anyway so much. [Neatorama]
Here’s a fan-made short film for Nightwing that was inspired by Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight Rises.
Indie music duo and YouTube sensation Pomplamoose recorded their version of the theme from 1989′s Batman, complete with a musical superhero story as the video. It’s so weirdly awesome…and I hate electronic music! [TDWGeek]
Nick McKaig, famous for making vocal versions of The Simpsons and Star War is at it again. This time, the vocalizing maestro, has given us an Capella version of the Indiana Jones’ main theme. Great, now I’m going to humming this at work all day. [Gizmodo]
Aquaman is cooler than you think. I don’t think so. All this video does is make me want to hit Aquaman more. [ToplessRobot]
