tabletop donkey kong

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: You can’t get much better than gaming and wine can you? Joel Griffin Dodd converted an old wine barrel into a fully functioning Donkey Kong tabletop arcade game. I need one of these in my living room… and I also need to know what happened to all of the wine that was in the barrel, because I need to drink it.   [Obvious Winner]



Speaking of things I’d like to have in my home, how about having this gates of Qarth table in your dining room or maybe in your office’s conference room? Never let it be said that the people behind Game of Thrones don’t recycle, because they turned the gates of Qarth set piece into an epic conference table. Could you imagine sitting at this every day? [Technabob]


I love it when burlesque goes nerd but ummm…. no. [Topless Robot]


I hope Vintage Vixen’s retro cosplay of Lois Lane makes those of you who hated Man of Steel feel just a bit better about life. [Fashionably Geek]


Bored with the obnoxious ‘inspirational’ posters that litter most office walls? Swap them out for these inspirational comic book quote posters. The posters were created by Adam Thompson to inspire non-nerds to read comics. [Geeks Are Sexy]


I think we’re going too far, Cumberbitches, don’t you? [MTVGeek]


Awwww, how adorable and delicious does Gandalf the White look in this cake made by Amanda Oakleaf Cakes? [Between the Pages]


A super cool mom painted this super impressive superhero wall in her son’s bedroom. Do you think she’ll adopt me? I need Jean Grey/Harley Quinn/Wonder Woman/She-Ra wall. [Fashionably Geek]

Watch 2,131 books topple over as the Seattle Public Library sets the world record for the longest domino book chain. [Geekologie]


I’m not sure, but I think Yoda would look down on a young Jedi using the Force to annoy people on an elevator. [Geekologie]
