FAN EXPO – Images from Day 1: Cosplay, LEGO, and Gaming

- 08-28-14Cosplay, Nerd Culture Posted by Adam A. Donaldson


Whenever Nerd Bastards goes to a con, we don’t just like to highlight the celebrity guests, news items and other things. No! We also like to put the camera on you, the fans. Those of you in costume anyway. So many fans get into an incredible amount of detail with their costumes, fret over the smallest detail and make sacrifices of comfort and mobility, so it’s only right that as we celebrate the culture, we also celebrate those that make the culture possible with their mad nerdiness. On this Thursday of Fan Expo 2014, we found judges, super-people, brains, robots, and something that looks suspiciously like something out of Will Graham’s nightmares. Also, some very impress LEGO sculptures were on display. All that, and MOAR, in this first photo gallery from Toronto’s National Fan Expo! (more…)

- 07-08-14Featured, Nerd Culture Posted by Jeremy R! Hudson


Hello prospective listener, thank you for your interest in the RadioBastard Podcast. Do you like Star Wars flashbacks, duplicitous robots, second hand LEGOS, living in a virtual world, 11 variations on a Boston accent, a little man with a big heart and the continued effort to keep Dan Harmon‘s pantry well stocked with the finest in name brand crackers? That’s fackin swell, because we’re talking all about those things and more on RadioBastard!

Also, do you like details? You’re in luck! Here’s something close to that… sort of! On the show this week, Jeremy, Jason and writer Matthew Jackson discuss: (more…)

And if it looks anything like the photo above: Apparently Bart, Homer, and Marge get stoned off their asses–which is making Lisa and Maggie incredibly nervous (and I don’t blame them).  (more…)

Come with us now for an experience that will stress your senses and tickle your gag reflex AND your funny bone. The astounding, the horrifying, the morbidly obese, and infectiously clever — The BastardCast. We are thought stallions rolling across a docile plain, a dust cloud of airborne giggle bits trailing the swipe of our night black tails. You will suck the marrow from the bone of this podcast and it will fill you with justice, purpose, and also marrow. Which is so gross. (more…)

The BastardCast vs a Tubby Time Lord and Superman Hits the Sauce

- 02-11-14Featured, Nerd Culture Posted by Team Bastard


Most shows make you wait decades for a lost episode (suck it, Doctor Who!) The BastardCast plays by their own rules and releases one mere days after it was thought kidnapped by the forces of evil (faulty Toshiba). Really, it’s a long story involving hard drives and ninjas so we won’t bore you with all the exciting details (there was a car chase! Jason got shot in the knee!)

Joining Jeremy and Jason on this unearthed artifact is long time friend of people he’s known for a long time, Chris Cummins for a rousing hour of fart jokes, geekery and, nerd news from 8 days ago… because all of this stuff STILL MATTERS! (more…)

In its latest and possibly greatest trailer, The LEGO Movie spoofs Man of Steel.

So, while you await the next inevitable rumor about Ghostbusters 3, check out these cool 30th Anniversary Ghostbusters toys. And then go buy them. And then play with them like you were 8-years-old again. (more…)

‘LEGO Marvel Super Heroes’ Spawns Webseries

- 11-05-13Comics, Videogames Posted by Sarah Moran


It’s another one of those moves that make it real tough to be a bigger DC fan than a Marvel one. Unlike when LEGO Batman 2 spawned a movie, which really turned out to be a collection of all the game’s cutscenes, LEGO Marvel Super Heroes is getting its own spinoff webseries. As in, original material set in the LEGO world of Marvel. (more…)

Batman Fails, Humorously, in Second ‘LEGO Movie’ Trailer

- 11-01-13Film Posted by Sarah Moran


A second trailer has released for The LEGO Movie, so if somehow the first one didn’t get you amped to see this hilarious look at the world of multicolored bricks, then there’s no hope for you. You’ll never understand the joy of tiny plastic Batman failing, repeatedly, to throw a batarang. (more…)
