Nerdy Bits: Night Watch Bros., Lady Armor for All, Tumblr: The Musical, See Santa Kick Ass in ‘Christmas Knight’, and MOAR!
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.

Speaking of Westeros, look as beautiful illustration of the isle. Kitkat Pecson’s map almost make the Seven Kingdoms look like a pleasant place to visit. Head over to io9 for their illustration of the sister island, Essos.

For anyone who’s spent an afternoon on Tumblr, or more likely a late evening turned early morning when you have to work in three hours! Shit! You’ll love everything about Tumblr: The Musical.

Just try and watch this and tell you don’t want to see a feature film! This is the teaser for Christmas Knight, a short from Mike Hill and Jessica Capasso. When the Earth is attacked and given an ultimatum for a hero to defend it, Santa Claus answers the call. And man, does he kick so much ass. (Geek Tyrant)
