Dance, magic dance…
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

ABOVE: Artist MrWhaite, was able to sum up Jim Henson’s cult fantasy movie The Labyrinth in one single illustration. Magic dance indeed.  [MrWhaite]


Forged long ago in the lost Elf kingdom of Gondolin, Orcrist, the ‘goblin cleaver’, was a legendary blade, well known to the wise of Middle-earth and infamous among their enemies. This legendary (replica) crafted Elvish born sword can be yours… for a mere $9,900. ’cause $10,000 would just be asinine. [ObviousWinner]


R2D2 high heels. These aren’t the shoes you’re looking for.[Geekologie]

Man of Steel Superman Movie Master.jpg

Man of Steel Superman action figure from Movie Masters.  Really starting to dig the suit, but I do wish he had the red underoos belt like in the comics.[CBM]


Proving once again that some nerds have way too much time on their hands, here’s Game of Thrones Kings Landing crafted in Minecraft [NerdApproved]


My friends always ask me “where do you get such wonderful paintings?” I send them to artist RobertBurden. He makes astonishing pop art featuring homages to 80’s action figures, toys and movies. Take a look at this “The Holy Batman” for example, it’s pure opulence.  [RobertBurden]


Ghostbusters Proton Pack Replica. You’d have to become a real Ghostbuster to get a Proton Backpack more realistic than this. The measurements are exact to the packs from the films, and both the cyclotron and powercell have working lights.  [GeekAlerts]


Gandalf, drawn on a suede chair. You shall not fart! [9gag]

UK film critic Ross Thompson decided to mash up some audio and visuals from the original Star Wars trilogy with elements from the upcoming Star Trek movie, sans lens flares [GAS]

Musician Sagar Jethani took the Downton Abbey theme by John Lunn, mashed it up with the Game of Thrones theme by Ramin Djawadi and…  [BuzzFeed]

Did you know George Lucas has a daughter who’s a MMA fighter? I didn’t. Here’s a trailer for a documentary about her. Cripes, makes me scarred to make fun of Georgie (and his bastardization of the prequels). He’ll sick his daughter on me, and I would lose. This chick kicks ass. [TheMarySue]

And now, T-Shirts You Gotta Buy…TODAY! (Before they’re gone.)
