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: At first glance, I thought this was a still from the new Tomb Raider game, then I realized it was a Lara Croft cosplay by Réka Lukoviczki. I’m blown away at how stunning this is. Really, whoa! [GAS]


DIY nerdy furnishings. All you need is a Boba Fett helmet, a lamp base and a little plexiglass and… BOOM, you got the best light in the galaxy. [ObivousWinner]

I’m seeing more an more people do everything with peeps, except, you know, eat them. Regardless, this Mario and Piranha plant made of peeps is a nifty way to present the mallow treats.  [Geekologie]

Minimalistic Star Wars poster. Dis hurts missa brain.  [NerdApproved]


Cosplayer Allison Brantley of AllieCat Cosplay pulling off a Vieran Warrior from Final Fantasy XII. She’s welcome to present me a Cadbury Cream egg any time. [FashionablyGeek]

Italy is known for food, butt slapping man, and being epicenter of Catholicism. But, did you know, the boot shape country is home to the biggest Ghostbusters fans? These guys built a replica of the Ghostbuster’s Firehouse HQ. They recreated an entire building, for gods sake. Now that’s just darn fanatical.  [Technabob]


A very interesting (and fairly accurate) observation on the life-span of a TV show [Cracked]

Chell has just escaped Aperture Laboratories and needs a friend more than ever. But who can you talk to when you in fact have no voice… or when you are also a horrible person?” This is how Portal 2 should have ended. [Dorkly]

Cast of Game of Thrones sings its theme song. Here’s to a GoT musical episode! [io9]

Hard times for Cobra forces Cobra Commander to turn to Kickstarter for funding… [DumbshitMountain]
