Nerdy Bits: Pocahontas Solo and Rapunzel Jedi, IKEA TARDIS, Goonies Tribute Song, The Walking Dead Meets Congress, and MOAR!
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: Pocahontas Solo And Rapunzel Jedi. Hokey religions and ancient weapons are no match for a good cosplayer at your side. [Cosplay]
Hermione Granger’s magical handbag cake crafted from Mike’s Amazing Cakes. Let’s all perform a little magic together, and make this disappear. Nomacadabra!
BioshockInfinite PC case mod. Definitely an admirable build, but I just don’t get the appeal of making things bulky and glueing gears to them. Plus, can you imagine the dust this thing would accumulate? It’d be enough to keep Dust-Off in business, for sure. [ObviousWinner]
The coin of the Faceless Men was given to Arya Stark by Jaqen H’ghar. She can use it to access Braavos and now, so can you. This is a replica of the one seen in the series and is officially licensed by George R.R. Martin. You’ll be cursing Valar Morghulis when you accidentally plop this in the soda machine. [NerdApproved]
IKEA shopping bag TARDIS. It’s a bit wibbly wobbly, but what do you expect from Swedish furniture? [FashionablyGeek]
Wizards of the Coast had this interactive fireball-throwing wall on display at PAX East to hype Magic: The Gathering. It used Kinect motion-tracking and “real time physics and spacial sound effects” to make wanna-be sorcerers feel like they’re shooting fireballs. The nerd in me is calling shenanigans! The colors are all wrong, blue mage casting red magic? [Geekologie]
An artist named Bonecage made an amazing tribute to the movie Goonies with a song called Oh Shit What?! Goonies never die! [GAS]
Heartbreaking zombie film about a dad trying to save his baby girl. Damn this video for making me feel things, sad things… [GeekTyrant]
The Walking Dead meets congress. Deadlock ensues. I felt this more entertaining that the second half of season 3 [CollegeHumor]
