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. Every Wednesday and Saturday (mid week/end of week) 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.

Chuck Palahniuk has written some seriously twisted books over the years. I’ve read Fight Club, Choke, and Invisible Monsters. The thought of him writing a children’s book is simply… horrifying. I have to admit though that while horrifying it is also, at the same time undeniably intriguing. So when I saw this video of Palahniuk reading Fight Club 4 Kids I knew I’d be watching it as fast as I could click the mouse. This is some seriously twisted and wonderful humor. (more…)

Fallout 3 holds a special place in all our gaming gamer hearts, but that doesn’t stop Smoosh Games from giving it the Honest Game Trailer Treatment. Even when blasting some particular aspect of the game, you can’t help but feel their love for the very thing they are attempting to lambaste. This might be the most conflicted Love/Hate relationship in the Known Universe, but maybe it’s more simply a Love/Annoyed relationship. (more…)

An Honest Trailer for Toy Story? Perish the thought. More often than not, the targets for Screen Junkies‘ Honest Trailers segment is a movie that doesn’t have a lot of, shall we say, renown. Sometimes a Matrix, or Jurassic Park, or Dark Knight slips through, but recent victims have included Armageddon, Fifty Shades of Grey and Ang Lee’s Hulk. So what, oh what can they say about Toy Story? It’s a modern masterpiece, the first of a long string of Pixar hits and an artistic work that revolutionized how animated works are conceived and created. Well, it turns out that Toy Story is pretty messed up on a lot of levels. Don’t believe me? Well this is an honest trailer after all. (more…)

We knew it was coming, how could the folks behind How It Should Have Ended not take on the biggest movie of the summer? In fact, it seemed so big that HISHE have, for the first time, created multiple HISHE videos for Joss Whedon‘s Avengers: Age of Ultron. Here’s part one.

Oh.. and for those of you wondering.. the SPOILER WARNING is kinda implied. I mean how could there not be spoilers in this video? C’mon.

Before Marvel’s Daredevil got made into a stupendous series on Netflix, the character had always been ripe for Television. Particularly, as a 90’s courtroom drama. You have character fighting against injustice by day as a lawyer, and by night as the superhero Daredevil, “The Man Without Fear”. How does that not sound like the best Law and Order spin-off ever?

Seems I’m not the only one to think so. Some guy went and made a mashup combining Daredevil with the opening credits of two other popular crime dramas; Nightcourt and Law & Order: Criminal Intent(more…)
