Every day the internet produces an astounding amount of goodies and gems. Most hilarious, someamusing, 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 nerdybits@nerdbastards.com

ABOVE: Fashionably Geek calls Cspranklerun’s April O’Neil cosplay “perfect” and I can’t think of a more apt description! It’s not just the outfit and accessories that make this the best April O’Neil coplay you’ll ever see, it’s the cosplayer’s attitude that really sells it. I hope Megan Fox is taking notes!

DC color chart

Way back when, DC was pretty strict about the color choices its artists could use. In 1982, they issued this handy dandy color chart to keep their colorists in line. [Creative Bloq]

dalek potato head

We’ve all been waiting for it and it’s finally here! The Dalek Mr. Potato Head! Now our Eleventh Doctor Mr. Potato Heads have a villain to defeat!

Freddy Face

True story: When I was a little kid I was deathly afraid of Freddy Kruger. My brother knew this and would don a Kruger mask, stick steak knives in a glove and hide in a closet and then jump out and TERRIFY THE LIVING FUCK OUT OF ME. If I had $400, I’d buy this silicon Freddy head and hide it in my brother’s bed…. you know, as a sisterly Halloween joke. [Etsy]

D and D rerelease

Heads up, nerds! The “original” D&D white box is being re-released this December! I put “original” in quotes because the booklets do have new artwork, so it’s not a perfect reproduction.  If you pre-order it from Amazon, you can get it for nearly $50 off. I’ve already pre-ordered mine and December cannot come soon enough. Frak Christmas! I just want this! I remember playing my first game of D&D when I was 10, I was so obviously out of my depth at that age, but it’s a moment I’ll never forget. We all remember our first D&D, don’t we?  [Geeks Are Sexy]

nerdy shutdown tweet

Of all the tweets sent out about the government shutdown over the past few days, this was by far the nerdiest.

cylon decals

I usually don’t give car decals a second glance but these cylon family ones are ridiculous! A cylon with a hair bow!! Baby toasters!!! [Home Geekonomics]

zombie tee

This zombie tee (also in a men’s style) is perfect for your Walking Dead premier party later this month… or just wear it to work to freak out your coworkers. [Fashionably Geek]

tetris light

I have a slight Tetris addiction, but I was only so-so on this Tetris inspired lamp until I realized that it comes apart! You can rearrange the individual Tetris pieces however you want. The lamp comes with one of each of the seven Tetris pieces. [Modcloth]

cook with heisenberg

AMC is missing a big branding opportunity by not releasing a line of Breaking Bad cookware. For now, these Walter White pot holders will have to do.


Excuse me. I have to go spend some money now. [Suckers Apparel via The Mary Sue]

While watching this Knight Rider/Back to the Future mashup, it occurred to me that there are probably a lot of you who don’t know what Knight Rider is. That makes me sad. Now I feel sad, old and nerdy. [Geeks Are Sexy]

I really don’t know who would want to tattoo bananas, except for maybe minions, but the affect is rather wicked. [Obvious Winner]

And now, T-Shirts You Gotta Buy…TODAY! (Before they’re gone.)
