Why Wrestlemania 17 Was The Best Thing Ever

Screen Shot 2015-03-28 at 12.03.57 PM

With Wrestlemania 31 fast approaching, I was appointed the task to compile some sort of list to commemorate the dumbest or craziest or coolest or whatever moments of Wrestlemania. No easy task. But I set out to compile a list of the best matches, and a lot of them shared a common theme: they were mostly from the same Wrestlemania. Interested in why, I fired up the WWE Network and turned on Wrestlemania X-7 (17), and was reminded of why I became a wrestling fan. Wrestlemania 17, my friends, is the greatest Wrestlemania of all time. Read on to find out why. (more…)

Just saying “Batman” takes you to another level of consciousness. In fact, if you didn’t say it in that deep gravely Christian Bale Batman voice the first time, try saying it again, you’ll most likely use it now. It’s no surprise that Cosplayers around the world love to dress up as the Dark Knight at Conventions, Children’s hospitals, Birthday parties and Charity events, as well as the occasional trip to the grocery store to pick up bread and milk. Now in NerdBastards ongoing attempt to scour the Internet for the best of Cosplay we present to you…

OPINION: Wrestling IS For Nerds!

Wrestle1

Ah, pro-wrestling. Either you completely adore it, or you find it to be the most idiotic, mind-numbing sport on earth (it is a sport, damn it…). But whether you hate it or you have “Austin 3:16” tattooed on your chest, it is an event that is indisputably nerdy. Don’t believe me? Ok, let me put it this way: good guys and bad guys sporting character-specific costumes monologue about their hopes, fears, and hatred for each other, which culminates in hyped-up battles for dominance. Sound familiar? Yeah. Read on for further proof, NerdBastards. (more…)

When you hear the word ‘rap’, what comes to mind? If you’re like me, it probably falls into the category of “Shit White People Shouldn’t Attempt Without Supervision”. With the obvious exception of Eminem and a handful of others, rap is another in a long line of musical genres that gave African-Americans a voice in difficult times. It was poetic, thought-provoking, in-your-face, and one hell of a market for exploitation. It has since become a mainstream oddity, somehow becoming extremely popular in spite of its often negative and explicit nature, as modern rap seems to have a chauvinistic, wealth-obsessed bent to it. There is light in the darkness, though, as another group has seemingly risen from the ashes of what hip-hop has become, intent on guiding the socially awkward toward a deeper understanding of what it is to be a nerd, and why liking what you like regardless of social status is totally badass. I’m talking about Nerdcore, the weird cousin of the Backpack Rap genre that revels in its oddity with unflinching, unapologetic, and insanely catchy anthems of staying home on prom night or dressing up for Comic-Con. To help you, I’ve compiled a list below of five Nerdcore Rap artists that most neatly encapsulate the genre and get you started on what is sure to be an epic quest. Go forth, young Padawan. (more…)

Which ever side of the Wonder Woman fence you find yourself, perhaps you think WW often severely lacks character and depth, has a bizarre and fundamentally flawed origin (she was made from clay or something), works with a silly selection of weaponry (bullet-stopping bracers and a lasso that makes men tell the truth), or think that her costume choice borders on the inappropriate, and is only that way to appeal to hormone engorged young boys, or men that haven’t grown out of that phase. To many others she is a pop culture icon worth celebrating.

At her core, Wonder Woman is a symbol of female strength, independence, and heroism. She is the original bad-ass super heroine. She was Xena, before Xena was cool!  She’s tough, honorable, and has a rich mythology that remains unexplored for most television and movie viewers. Oh yeah, and she’s incredibly graceful and wonderful to watch. Throw in that she’s associated with some of DC’s heaviest hitters, Batman, Superman, and The Green Lantern and you’ve got the core group that makes up the original Justice League.

Here she is, cosplayed by a myriad of ladies honoring the warrior to themyscira. The costume is iconic and very hard to pull off well, but these girls bring it to life.
