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 nerdybits@nerdbastards.com.

ABOVEGina B. makes a fine Velma from Scooby Doo, though I’m thinking the next mystery they need to solve is what happened to her skirt. Or not. [CBM]

Grand Moff Tarkin may not have survived the destruction the Death Star, but thanks to The Peter Cushing Appreciation Society we know he’ll forever memorialized on the side of this van. [GAS]

Isn’t this just the cutest lil’ Bender you’ve ever seen!?! This little guy can threaten to destroy all humans whenever he wants. [Fashionably Geek]

These 3D paper cutouts by Will Pigg are incredible. The detail and sense of dimension make these pieces more than just paper craft. Check out the whole gallery on Technabob.

Carrie Fisher’s Open Letter to Princess Leia:

I’ve spent almost two-thirds of my life walking galaxies in those fucking white leather boots. I’ve even attempted to answer for your actions, to explain your possible motives for choices one of us failed to make. But while you will forever be remembered loitering in star-infested landscapes, existing endlessly in imaginations and onscreen, I putter noisily in that infamous closet of celebrity–expanding, wrinkling, stooping, and far too often, stupid with age.

Check out Bullet Media for the entire letter. [ToplessRobot]


Imagine Lost as a 16-bit video game. Wait. You don’t have to thanks to this fantastic College Humor spoof. [NerdApproved]

In another video from Project Cosplay by Firefall developers Red 5, watch as cosplayer Crystal Graziano transforms herself into Commander Shepherd. It’s a stunning watch and you’ll be all the more appreciative of the hard works that goes into these magnificent costumes. [Kotaku]

In what is simply a perfect, perfect trailer mashup, the Powerpuff Girls meet Pacific Rim. [The Mary Sue]

And finally, how Twilight Breaking Dawn Part 2 should have ended. [HISHE]
