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: There many Psylocke cosplays, but none as accurate and sexy as Stella Chuu. She should have played Psylocke in X3. At least we would of had something to look at.
AT-AT trophy heads. Fit for a rebel man’s base (aka cave/basemen) [ObvioisWinner]
Pimpkachu. He’s got 99 problems but a pikachu ain’t one. [GAS]
Cracked.com imagines what it would have looked like if Guilermo del Toro had said yes to a Star Wars movie. I dunno about the rest of you, but my dreams for the next few weeks are surely ruined. [Cracked]
Totoro spandex body suit, because… well… I don’t fucking know. To whomever buys these things, be weird and creepy all you want, just stay the hell away from me and my family. [FashionablyGeek]
Storm Trooper helmet cake. Begun the cake wars have. [Technabob]
Super Mario Bros theme: the heavy metal version. Wow, she plays pretty good. Wait… that’s a dude!? The long Loreal treated hair deceived me. [331Erock]
The Batman Chronicles is a non-profit, fan-made effort to produce a series that maintains the feel of the comics. This clip features actor/director Anthony Misiano who is also a well-known Joker cosplayer who has made appearances at conventions nationwide. His laugh sends a chill down your spine. If this InideGoGo project gets enough supporters it will become a full-fledged web series. [Best of Cosplay]
Once again,proving that everything is better with lightsabers, here’s the movie 300 with Spartan Jedi’s. [GeekTyrant]
Waterloo Labs developed a system that uses a variety of electric motors, micro-processors and RFID tags to bring the same gameplay of Mario Kart to real life. Yes, with real go-karts, stars, shells, and track obstacles. Even Chain Chomps for heaven’s sake.This is what happens when you play with Science. [TechCrunch]
