Nerdy Bits: Hipster Superheroes, the Truth about Ewoks, Alien and Predator Tie the Knot 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 email@example.com.
ThinkGeek is making it pretty easy to turn your bathroom into a TARDIS thanks to their TARDIS shower curtain and this new TARDIS shower caddy. Think about it, if you decorate your bathroom like the TARDIS you get to say things like “Excuse me. I have to use Sexy now” instead of “Excuse me. I have to use the bathroom.” People might look at you like you’re nuts, but who cares?
I had a minor (okay major) rant over the character of Tauriel in The Hobbit but there is no denying that this Tauriel cosplay by AngelaBermudez is absolutely stunning. Check out Fashionably Geek for more pics.
Want to live in Kings Landing? Well, you can – for a week, anyway. As part of the promotion for the Game of Thrones season 3 DVD and Blue-ray release, the English town of Kings Langley will be renamed Kings Landing for one week. [io9]
Olivia Desianti’s nerdy propaganda posters are so beautiful you’ll need to purchase every single one. Most of them are Game of Thrones related, but Society6 also has posters of Loki, Sherlock, the IT Crowd, among a few others. If the posters aren’t your thing, the art is also available on tech cases stationary, clothing and tote bags. [Geeks Are Sexy]
I honestly never thought anything would top that Labyrinth wedding cake (also by Tracey Rothwell) I featured a few months ago, but there is no way a wedding cake can get any better than this Alien vs Predator cake by Black Cherry Cake Company. We all know the AvP feud is really just a tragic love story. So good to see those crazy kids finally worked it out. [Mental Floss]
This super cool, movable, R2D2 ring is part of a collection of officially licensed Star Wars jewelry. Unfortunately, the items (which include 16 rings of various Star Wars characters) appear to be only prototypes. [Neatorama]
Don’t be fooled by their cute faces. Ewoks are scary flesh eating creatures! [Geeks Are Sexy]
