Morning, bastards! Welcome to your first of many daily doses of Nerdy Bits!
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, every morning, 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.
The successor to the Poke-bra, this Angry Birds bra gives each tit a distinct personality! (TDW: Geeks)
The Interwebz is a great place for artists to share their nerdy work, even though the majority of the time it’s a bunch of fuckin’ weird shit like Jesus pr0n or something. There is a ton of awesome shit to check out every day but we’re fuckin’ lazy bastards so it just gets rounded up once a week to keep your reward centers happy. This week, I bring to you another stock pile of art from the other side of the fuckin’ world (as I melt in the heat)!
It’s an Angry Bird dressed up as Batman! Or it’s an Angry Bat. Whatever. But this dude’s come up with a bunch of superhero inspired Angry Birds and perhaps it’s because I’m an Angry Birds addict that I find them all supremely amusing. Check out the website for more!
Mobile gaming, as it is today, has become so readily available and at presented at such a cheap price that it’s taken attention away from gaming classics. And it’s got one particular Italian plumber very pissed off.
Mario was one of the first characters we played as in a video game, making him an almost “Godfather” like figure of his own mafia. Being a leader like that commands respect. So when some bitch ass $.99 games and a few slingshot tossed Angry birds try to work their way into his territory he’s not just going to lay back and take it, IS HE? Shit no! He’s getting the other companies together and waging some old fashion war.
Steve Jobs and Apple need to start checking their beds for severed Ipads.
The Interwebz is a great place for nerdy art and the like. A lot of the time it’s fuckin’ weird shit like gay Vulcan pr0nz. But there are a lot of awesome things that we see on a daily basis and we’re lazy nerd bastards so we just round them all up once a week for your nerdgasm glory.
First off this week is some paper art by Lucie Thomas and Thibault Zimmermann, who call themselves Zim and Zou. This collection, called Back to Basics, consists of models of retro electronics that are hand made with sustainable paper. Every scrap is saved for potential later use. It’s pretty fuckin’ insane. Check out the site for more pictures, and a video detailing their process.

Samuel L. Jackson reading “Go the Fuck to Sleep.” I really don’t need to tell you anything else. It’s precious, charming and fucking hilarious. (CollegeHumor)
The peeps over at Electric Spoofaloo posted a spoof mash-up of Tron: Legacy and Angry Birds. It’s actually pretty hilarious. Instead of receiving a page from a number that’s been out of service for years and years, Sam receives a text message from an iPhone that’s been unused for about 3 months… and is then taken onto “The Grid”.
I don’t know about you guys, but Angry Birds definitely takes over my life. Those birds… They’re soooooooo fuckin’ angry! Goddamn fuckin’ pigs.
Think Geek is the top purveyor of the geeky goods that keep us nerds humming along at a happy pace. Whether it be t-shirts, gadgets or bacon flavored…well…everything, Think Geek provides. This year’s newest batch of products is top notch. Announced today, here’s the skinny on all the new gizmos and treats Think Geek will be selling out of by day’s end.
Hey, did you get it? Today is April 1st, better known as April Fool’s Day, making all of these awesome goodies hoaxes, pranks, fake-outs, but still great examples of things we’d love to see Think Geek selling in the future. And it could happen! Popular products like the Tauntaun Sleeping Bag and the iCade all began as April Fool’s Day pranks. Whose to say the same couldn’t happen with these hilarious ideas,
Angry Birds Pork Rinds are the ultimate in high protein snacking. Since the only other green meat we’ve encountered has been a breakfast meat paired with green eggs, we’re calling these “The Other Green Meat.” Much like green ham, you can eat Angry Birds Pork Rinds here or there. You can eat them anywhere. You can eat them with Red Leader. You can eat them from a bird feeder. You can eat them on a date. You can eat them on a Shirt Plate!
These crispy delicacies were painstakingly collected from the wreckage of exploded green pig flesh by the Pork Remnants Collectors Union 1337. After a bath in a vat of boiling oil, they are seasoned to perfection and packaged in snack sized bags. Break one open and taste the crisp, salty, savory flavor that only green pigs can produce. A truly succulent treat for the discerning mobile gamer.
So when we spotted this amazing Apple Store Playset from PLAYMOBIL™ we were admittedly in a bit of a conundrum. On the one hand, it’s a product designed for children much younger than ourselves. On the other hand, it’s a tiny representation of the store which sells us all the shiny Apple goodies we can’t resist. Then we noticed that the PLAYMOBIL™ iStore includes amazingly tiny iPhones, Macbooks, and iPads. Our resolve began to waver. A quick peek at the miniature Genius Bar and we were feeling a bit woozy. Then we saw the tiny Steve Jobs presenting in the Keynote Theater on the top floor and that was it. Our wallets popped out faster than you can say Jonathan Ive and we plunked down whatever money was needed to own this amazing playset.
Of course, once we had the playset, we had to get the optional Line Pack to simulate our own exciting Apple product launches. Since it comes with a tiny Woz on a tiny Segway, it was a no-brainer. We decided that Apple & PLAYMOBIL™ together is the most unlikely and awesome collaboration ever. It changes everything.
The popular video game, Angry Birds, is currently in development for toys, an animated television show, and more! So, what would happen if it was turned into an action movie?
And not just any action movie, but a Michael Bay action movie?
Considering the game is about birds flying into buildings, explosions and pigs out for blood, it doesn’t seem all that out of the realm of possibility. Thankfully, Rooster Teeth, the guys that brought us Red vs. Blue, made a trailer to show you just how awesome that movie could be.
If you own a smartphone and iPad or it’s newer, hipper brother the iPad2 then you must have played the sensational Angry Birds game. Launching a small army of birds into wooden structures to murder helpless green pigs for points, it’s just so addicting. That’s where the trouble comes in, if the game is so addicting it starts to affect those things that are part of you everyday life. Your job, your friends, even your love life (if you have one) takes a dive faster then you can toss those colorful little birds. Oh great and powerful Steve Jobs, isn’t there someone who can save us from this crutch in our lives? Thankfully, this is where former world champion boxer Mike Tyson comes in.
He bit a man’s ear off, you’ll listen.
At least this is over quickly, you should have seen the idea for the 12 rounds with Tyson. Amazing turn around but too many broken wrists. I kid, he’s a good sport (don’t kill me Mr.Tyson, please).
Tossing birds in the air only to have them crash into precariously placed pigs, something makes me think PETA would be pissed about this but theirs nothing they can do. These “birds” and “pigs” are nothing more then colored balls that could only harm a child not paying any attention. This real life take on the insanely popular Angry Birdsgame, from the recreated sounds to the pop up points is a stroke of insane genius. These guys decided to take things further and make their own backyard edition of the bird tossing ipad game. Rebuilding levels 1-1 and 1-2 must have been quick and easy, level 6-12 is going to be a bitch.
