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: This fabulous Daryl Dixon was found at Wondercon, is cosplayed by Leeanna Vamp, and is very accurate, right down to a necklace of ears. Okay, now I want an entire genderbent Walking Dead group. [Fashionably Geek]
Check out this 1:6 Minecraft replica of the USS Enterprise-D from Star Trek: The Next Generation. It’s terrifying well detailed. And, as Kotaku points out,”creator, Zinnsee had to battle mobs, stave off hunger and craft everything he needed while building the ship,” making this achievement even more impressive.
If you’re looking for something cuddly, allow me to recommend these new R.O.U.S. plushies. That’s Rodents of Unusual Size for those not picking up on The Princess Bride reference. Only $49.99 at Think Geek!
Y’know, I don’t think ABC Family has any idea what Batman Begins is really about. “He fights for family, and lives for love.” WTF? Do they even known who Batman is?!? [/Film]
Full of cheap shots at both Disney and Lucasfilm, this short film mashing together the two movie juggernauts manages to be not only accurate, but pretty funny. [Bleeding Cool]
