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.

The makers of superhero themed leather motorcycle outfits, UD Replicas, have revealed a new Batman Backpack, inspired by Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight. Memba that scene where Batman is standing on top the skyscraper in Hong Kong? Yeah, that’s where you can spot it. Anyway, you’d be totally boss wearing this in school. And, if any kids give you shit about it, you can always pull the ole’ “wanna see a magic trick”. [GeekTyrant]
Etsy seller Elizabeth Dean’s hand towels are embroidered with icons from classic video game and franchises, including Super Mario Bros., The Legend of Zelda and Doctor Who. Yeah, as neat as these are, I would just feel so wrong using Kirby’s face as a sex clean up rag. Oh, the horror. Poor Kirby. [TechnaBob]
Skin tight super hero themed zentai suits, for the lazy cosplayer in all of us. [FashionablyGeek]
Star Wars moments captured in LEGO [NerdApproved]
This short film / music video by Ilya Naishuller for Biting Elbows‘ 2013 single ‘Bad Motherfucker’ is bat shit insane. I watched because of boobs, then realized t’s adrenaline fueled, first person perspective, action extravaganza. It’s like James Bond meets Pulp Fiction meets Crank 2 meets Mirrors Edge. [Kotaku]
Hollywood blacksmith Tony Swatton forges He-Man’s power sword. It’s fabulous! [AweMeChannel]
I never understood the whole “March Madness” thing. All I know, is during the month of March, my Twitter and Facebook get blown up with basketball gibberish. Thanks to Seattle-based comedy group Satire, and their explanation of March Madness via Star Wars, I can now appreciate the madness. I’d still rather watch Star Wars over any basketball game, but you know, I can relate now.
