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: Cowboy John Lopez (yes, cowboy) moonlights as an artist and made this rad tribute to the famous T-Rex Sue. Lopez created this epic sculpture with scrap automobile and machinery parts. Impressive. I can’t even make a T-Rex out of toothpicks (that’s a lie, I totally can make a T-Rex out of toothpicks, but this is still way more impressive than that). [Obvious Winner]
It should be no secret that the nerds on this site really love Bill Murray. I mean REALLY love him. But I wonder… would any of of them go as far as super-fan @Sopaguada and get Bill’s likeness tattooed on their chest? [Geeks Are Sexy]
[Veruca Salt voice]I WANT THIS DRESS AND I WANT IT NOW![/Veruca Salt voice] Artist Egle created this vintage inspired Harley Quinn dress as part of her Gotham Noir collection. Unfortunately, this is the only dress that Egle plans to create for now. The rest, including Poison Ivy and Catwoman, are likely to remain sketches. So sadly, we can’t buy them. I don’t understand this. I want to give her my money. WHY WON’T SHE TAKE MY MONEY??? [Fashionably Geek]
Crispian Jago created this ultimate and interactive Doctor Who subway map. Each subway (or tube, or metro, or whatever you want to call it) line represents an incarnation of the Doctor. The map definitely needs some updating to keep up with the latest changes, but it’s still pretty cool. [i09]
This handpainted Labyrinth tea set has no power over you! Uh, except it totally has power over me because I want it. I want to sit in a park and drink tea from it and recite “through dangers untold and hardships unnumbered…..” over and over again while strangers look at me like I’m a complete nutter. [That’s Nerdalicious]
Hey, look! Someone made a mask that creates edible algae from your breath! Isn’t that neat-o? The geeks at Geekologie think it’s pretty great because it makes you look like a supervillain. I think it’s downright terrifying because it’s only a matter of time before that algae rebels and tries to eat your face off.
Uhoh! The Dark Knight has retired and left Robin in charge! This spells trouble for the citizens of Gotham but it’s great news for Gotham’s villains! [Fashionably Geek]
If you ever get lost in Middle-earth, this handy dandy skirt will help you find your way! This map of Middle-earth fabric was handmade by Etsy seller NerdAlertCreations, so this item is definitely a precious find…. maybe not as precious as the one ring, but still pretty precious.
I don’t want to spoil this bad-ass battle between Wolverine & Predator, but uh, I give the ending a thumbs down. [Obvious Winner]
