501st

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: Dr Evil. can relax, because FINALLY, we have a shark with a freakin’ laser! This is real lemon shark with a real 50mw green laser attached to it’s dorsal fin using a temporary clamp. This stunt was pulled off by Wicked Lasers and Luke Tipple [Wired]

Be shocked and amazed at the sounds coming from this PVC tube organ. Seriously, you’ll recognize these tunes, like maybe a certain video game theme involving tubes of its own. (College Humor)

Dark Lord Banned From Star Wars Events

Dude, What the Fuck? Apparently David Prowse A.K.A. Darth Vader has been BANNED from Star Wars Celebration V convention as well as any and all other Lucasfilm-associated events. Why? Well No one really knows actually. Bitches be cockblockin’. Prowse Says;

“It is with regret that I have been informed by my friends at C2 Ventures, Ben and Phillip, that I am not to be invited to C5 this year or any other Lucas Film associated events. After enquiring, the only thing I have been told is that I have ‘burnt too many bridges between Lucas Film and myself’ – no other reason given…I have also been advised by the promoter of Paris Manga in September that LFL (Lucas Film Limited) have requested no photo opportunities with the 501 Squadron, even though I am commander in chief of the 501”

Um, what the fuck did you do? Did you rape Lucas’ puppy? Try and Teabag his granny? Ask his wife to give you a blumpkin?!?! Lucas isn’t saying anything, prowse is being extremely vague. There is a ton of speculation as to what ‘burnt too many bridges’ refers to (see above…we bet it was the blumpkin.) We’ll update you as soon as more information becomes available.

Weird Avatar Storm Trooper Helmet

avatar-stormtrooper-helmet-design

Normally you’d have to find yourself in a dark back room of some seedy West Virginian bar to see something this weird looking, but this Avatar Storm Trooper Mashup (which if you ask me looks like Predator, a Na’vi, and Zoidberg had a retarded cousin baby and kept it’s head in a Storm Trooper mold) is an art piece done by Denise Vasquez for the 501st TK Project. While we love and embrace all sorts of Nerd this shit is crazy. Just how we like it. Check out some close up giant photos after the jump. (more…)

More Star Wars goodness! Yay!

Most of us will agree that nerds have hearts of gold. We may geek out on weird stuff, but we’re first in line when it comes to being compassionate to others. The official Star Wars blog reports that members of the Queensland chapter of the famed 501st Legion dressed in their finest “holy trilogy” (“sixology?”) gear and donated  blood that will help a ton of patients. Better yet, this is a regular thing! For this, Nerdbastards.com happily salutes the 501st. Carry on, troops, carry on.
