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 nerdybits@nerdbastards.com.

ABOVE: Genderbent cosplay of one of science fiction’s most beloved couples? Yes, please! C&C Cosplay‘s switcheroo of Han and Leia is super adorable. Check out more of Zach Picard photos on Fashionably Geek.


Hand crafted by Wuppes, these 3D diorama recreations of our favorite video game levels are just incredible! Head on over to The Mary Sue and just marvel at the detail.


Not only are these impeccable period costumes, but they’re awesome spins on the classic duo: The Joker and Harley Quinn. Plus, extra points for including The Joker’s recent disturbing facelift as a mask. Fantastic job, @taruskippy and @geeksterswhimsy! [Fashionably Geek]


No one gets a birthday party like Eric and Lisa Cheung’s little one year old, Emma. I see a long and peaceful rule ahead for this monarch. [Mashable]


I don’t know how you’d format a sign like this, but I’d make the “I did not watch,” bigger and add in “NO SPOILERS.” Otherwise, you could be inviting disaster. [Cheezburger]


It’s a mini-Miyazaki film! Well, yeah that’s basically it, but what this really is a seven minute music video for Chage and Aska’s song “On Your Mark” that Hayao Miyazaki worked on while taking a break from Princess Mononoke. [io9]

E3 is currently underway and every day there’s new video game announcements to either get you excited or make you depressed you don’t own a next-gen console. This, however, should put a smile on any gamer’s face: Goldeneye recreated in Far Cry 3. [William Kjellgren]

Mario Kart 8 is the latest in the long-running racing franchise for Nintendo and it could just be the game to make the Wii U relevant. At least to those hardcore Mario fans who get every reference included in this video. [GameXplain]
