Nerdy Bits: Trekkie Boobs, Darth Alien Helmet, No More Magic Stuffs On eBay, ‘Seasons of Love’ Sung in Klingon 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. You can submit items to Nerdy Bits by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

For the As You Wish Project artist Thomas Spano crafted this Alien/Darth Vader helmet. It’s super neat, but jeeze, talk about things that are gonna haunt your dreams. “Can’t sleep, Darth Alien will eat me”. [FashionablyGeek]
As of August 30th, no one will be able to buy magic spells, potions, curses, incantations or any other enchantments on eBay. I guess selling nerd urine under the pretense of love is frowned upon. Regardless, Witches, warlocks and mythical creatures should stock up now. I wonder if the banning of false goods also applies to penis pills. Hmm, best I load em’ up while I still can. [NerdApproved]
The Aerofex dual rotor-powered hoverbike is a concept float machine from the 60’s, brought back with modern technology. Aerofex has currently limited human flight testing to a height of 15 feet and speeds of about 30 mph. Shiiiiiiit, put a green goblin mask on this guy and you got “Amazing Spider-Man 2: Electric Boogaloo” [Geekologie]
Go into street view for the address “335–343 Hull Road, York, England, YO10 3, United Kingdom” and you’ll see the TARDIS parked/landed at a gas station. What? Can’t the Doctor stop for a super gulp, gas station donuts and some scratch tickets? [GAS]
Singer, songwriter, nerd Rachel Bloom exploded to internet stardom when she sung “Fuck Me, Ray Bradbury.” Bloom is back, will “Seasons of Love” from the musical Rent, translated into the dulcet tones of the Klingon language. [ io9]
In the Game of Thrones, You Meow or You Die! I’ve watched this cat meowing the GoT theme more times than I care to admit. [ToplessRobot]
Willy Wonka. Admiral Adama. The Nerdist Channel’s Tournament of Nerds. I vote for the ring girl with big boobs. [Nerdist]
The daily ‘games we play’ that we play in our minds, a video short from an imaginative nerd. Admit it, you’ve done at least one of the mind games featured in this video. [ObviousWinner]
