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.

Something it’d be impossible not too feel great wearing, custom designed Game of Thrones Converse high tops. Created by Tannim you can order a pair at their Etsy store. Me? Targaryen all the way, baby. (Fashionably Geek)
The mayor of Reykjavík, Iceland is cooler than any public official you know. Why? Exhibit one, he dressed as Obi-Wan Kenobi for their recent International Film Festival. See io9 for more instance where Jón Gnarr Kristinsson is too cool for America.
We know a Doctor Strange movie is in the works, in the mean time we can hope it’ll look as cool as this poster. Found on Geek Tyrant with, sadly, no artist credit. Is it yours?
We’ve seen some wildly impressive LEGO creations, but this Hyrulian Shield is jaw-dropping. (TDW: Geek)
Doctor Who gets an into in The Love Boat style. It features Ten and his Series 4 companions, which is actually a little strange to see having come so far. I bet seeing Nine and Rose together seems really weird and old now.
Cosplayer Chronicles is a new series from Distractatron Channel that seeks to expose the person behind the mask, of their superhero costume. This here is Episode 2, Sean, a cosplayer who after getting back in shape decided to bring his favorite heroes to life through costuming now not only cosplays at Con across the country but does charity work in costume, too.

Batman hates My Little Pony…or does he? (Nerd Approved)
