Nerdy Bits: Xbox Achievements We’ve All Unlocked, Master Splinter’s 80s Ballad, Peter Parkour, 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: The bidding may have ended for this bit of Wil Wheaton memorabilia – earning a total of $1,035.00 for charity! – but that doesn’t mean you can’t share in the story. See, Wheaton was autographing this card for a friend when with a swipe of the marker he drew a big, ugly line across his face. To rectify it he added sunglasses and the requisite, “Yeeaahh!” WIN.

Xbox Achievements we’ve all earned at one time or another. More at Dorkly.

Do you remember when the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles formed a band and went on the the “Coming Out of Their Shells Tour”? It was delightfully 80s, let’s put it that way. Here’s Spinter’s memorable tune, “Skipping Stones.” [Nerdist]
Speaking of Nerdist, Just Cos was at this year’s Dragon*Con and are finally revealing their report. What did they uncover? Well, there is some of the best cosplay around but even more prevelant? The booze.
And speaking of cosplay, this video shot and edited by Yung Lee doesn’t only feature great costumes but everyone involved is turned into a kick ass action star. Can we get more cosplay videos like this, please? [Geek Tyrant]
The UK film/TV production company Infinite Wisdom (in association with SONY and GoPRO) made this film, Peter Parkour, to commemorate The Amazing Spider-Man release. The message, I’m guessing, is learn enough parkour and you too can Spider-Man. [Laughing Squid]
