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: In case you haven’t seen the 400,000 piece LEGO replica of Hogwarts (that includes fully decked out interiors!) you can check out detailed shots at Geekologie. The above image is my favorite, because OMFSM the thing friggin’ lights up!
Why didn’t anyone wear this to the Oscars? [Geeks Are Sexy]
This don’t need commentary, so I’ll just say SPOCKS! [Laughing Squid]
This Steampunk Borderlands/Rage inspired costume was made from scratch for a costume contest this March. The artist is selling the helmet only via pre-order on Etsy. So if you have $335 to burn, it can be yours. [Fashionably Geek]
I spotted these steampunk switch plate covers in a local store (and promptly terrified the locals when I shouted “I fraking need this in my life! NAO!”) and lucky for you, they’re also available at Etsy in a variety of styles/colors.
We mentioned the Golden Gate Knights in yesterday’s Nerdy Bits, but now BuzzFeed has 19 additional photos of the Jedis in action.
What the hell else are you supposed to do with a ton of cardboard boxes besides build an Optimus Prime? [Topless Robot]
I present to you the best thing you will see all day: Emperor Picard the Magnificent! Although, Bone Crusher (witch doctor and dungeon mistress) is pretty damn awesome, too. [Geeks Are Sexy]
If you get the munchies while your mainlining seasons of Dexter (or reading the novels) then you need these cookies inspired by Dexter’s opening credits. Yes, those are cookies, not eggs. [Laughing Squid]
Why isn’t this first person Mario game a real thing? It needs to be. [Topless Robot]
The gals of Team Unicorn visit Spectral Motion and talk robots with Mark Setrakian
If M. Night Shyamalan directed Real Genius we’d get something like this.
And now, T-Shirts You Gotta Buy…TODAY! (Before they’re gone)
Don’t forget about our Nerd Bastards’ tees, available at RedBubble!
