rocketeer cosplay

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

NESN64 controller

This super cool N64 controller has been given a NES make-over by designer Zoki64. Check out Nerd Approved for other images and a video!

comic lanterns

The gals of the International House of Geek give a tutorial on how to make these nerdy comic book inspired lanterns. Perfect for that romantic Valentine’s Day dinner you’ll be having by yourself in your mom’s basement.

lego brick mug

As if coffee could get any better! With this LEGO mug from ThinkGeek, you can build while you drink the nectar of the caffeinated gods! Uh, but I’d be careful not to get too excited by what you’re building. You don’t want to spill your coffee.


PEPP-ER-ON-I!!! PEPP-ER-ON-I! [Obvious Winner]


This XKCD is actually not new. It came across my Twitter feed today and I felt it needed to be shared, especially because as nerds, we tend to feel like crap about ourselves. So here’s a reminder that you’re wonderful. Aw.

The rest of you mashup artists can just GO HOME because Phil Postma has pwned you all with his superhero/Pixar combos. [Nerd Approved]


TARDIS coasters from ThinkGeek! Whatever, I’m just waiting for someone to make me a wine glass that’s bigger on the inside so that no one knows how much Shiraz I’m imbibing.

The ladies of Team Unicorn are being super teases and only giving us a 30 second look into their new video “For the Win.”

This video game retrospective of Aliens goes all the way back to the 1982 Atari game. Really crazy to see the Commodore 64 graphics, computers have come a long way in just a few decades!

Despite the fact that BlackBerry is a dead company walking, they’re very smart to capitalize on the nerdlove we all have for Neil Gaiman. His “Keep Moving” project was also one of the most beautiful things I saw happen on Twitter last week.

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




Don’t forget about our Nerd Bastards’ tees, available at RedBubble!
