Nerdy Bits: Dark Phoenix Cosplay, Nerd Proposes In Front of Rancor, A Bad Lip Reading of Twilight, Assassin’s Creed IRL 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.
ABOVE: Dark Phoenix cosplay from X-Men by Michelle Smith. You know, I ‘m trying real hard to cut down on on the sexy stuff and deviant commentary around here, but I’m a very weak man. [WOCC]
Oh look, Jakks Pacific is selling Star Wars themed inflatable pool toys just in time for… the end of summer! The set includes a Millennium Falcon, an X-Wing, and more. They are available at Target stores in the US and at Walmart Canada. On a unrelated note: Is the kid in the picture wet from playing in the pool, or did the photog slather him in crisco? Kid is awfully shiny. [GeekTyrant]
Etsy seller luv2right is offering a one of a kind skirt featuring your favorite movie or television show. [FashionablyGeek]
Ancient weapons and hokey religions are not match for a good blaster at your side. [THSOTF]
One Does Not Simply Walk into Mordor. [SlashFilm]
Poor guy. He finds a girl that likes the same things he does. Dude proposes (sappy) then girl gets eaten by a Rancor. How tragic. FYI: this display of true nerd love happened at Star Wars Celebration VI in Orlando Fl. Girl is safe, and said “Yes”. [TDWGeek]
A bad (or really good) lip reading of Twilight. This made me laugh so effin’ much. Finally, I can tell my fiancee (a twihard) that I watched Twilight w/o throwing my shoe at the TV. [ObviousWinner]
An rock ballad tribute to Jurassic Park. Let’s raise our lights, bang our heads and hunt some dinos [TDWGeek]
So, you don’t watch Doctor Who, huh? I bet this how NB Jeremy feels when we talk about DW. He’s the one bastard who hasn’t caught on to Doctor Who yet. [TheMarySue]
The guys at Distractotron just started an interesting new documentary web series giving insight into why people Cosplay and what they get out of it. [Distractotron]
Here’s a video of parkour pro Ronnie Shalvis dressed as Altaïr Ibn-La’Ahad from the Assassin’s Creed series climbing up walls and jumping off buildings and doing flips. [Geekologie]
