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 firstname.lastname@example.org
Each and every week we scour the Internet for nothing but the best in nerdy art. We leave no digital stone unturned, we poke and prod every nook and cranny of the Interwebz. Why? Because we love you, and we love to bring you weekly feed of nerd art. On with the dump!
Based on the famous surreal painting “The Son of Man” by René Magritte this parody piece by Ben6835 is a little more mutant and pizza than human and apple faced. [Neatorama]

Compilations, montages, supercuts. Whatever you want to call them, lately, they’re everywhere. I like calling ‘em supercuts. It’s fun to say. Supercuts. Suuuppeeerrcuts. See?
Anyway, supercuts are videos comprised of only one thing from either movies, television, video games or cartoons repeated over and over and over again. There are Star Wars supercuts, My Little Pony supercuts, Game of Thrones supercuts, Quentin Tarantino supercuts, and even a supercut focusing on the “Spielberg Face.” Basically, if some savvy video editor starts to notice recurring cliches, lines, or even camera shots they’re going to edit ‘em all together into one massive supercut.
Here we’ve got a superb collection of 25 supercuts spanning all kinds of things. Check ‘em out and let us know which is your favorite! I know we haven’t included every excellent supercut so if you’ve got a favorite we missed share it in the comments below and help us make this an ultimate collection.
Every Single Fucking Dude from The Big Lebowski [TannerStraus]
He’s just, “the Dude,” y’know? What an enviable title, who wouldn’t want to be known by one and all as, “the Dude”? This style of supercut is pretty common, an edit of one word or phrase repeated again and again, but there’s something about hearing “Dude” continually repeated I find calming. It’s good for my zen.
When do you start exposing your children to classic movies? According to artist Josh Cooley, sooner than you’d think!
Cooley has created a picture book based on scenes from classic movies that you can read to your kids before they go to bed. Why not give the little younglings some culture? We all know Dr. Seuss isn’t going to teach them anything useful in life.
Check out below the jump for a sample of some of his work, and you can also check out his book, and even order prints of the pages, here.
Tron is a movie that signified the changing of the guard for movie making – using computer to create effects. Most movies, from romantic comedies to horror use digital animation or effects to make the movie ‘better’ (depending on the movie, that is up for debate).
With the upcoming sequel of Tron Legacy, it is understandable that people are really excited to head back into that world.
The website Ain’t It Cool News decided to host a competition in celebration, by having people “tron-itize” scenes from their favorite movies in order to win a seat the the annual Butt-Numb-A-Thon (a 24 hour marathon of movies in Austin, Texas).
Got a favorite movie quote? Ever thought of doing something with that quote? Well, Goran Patlejch (a.k.a. Goenetix) did and while they may be simple looking, they are all awesome in their own way. From Star Wars to Big Lebowski, to Matrix and Terminator, Patlejch used his art skills to showcase famous movie quotes.
