Bender

homervsbender

TV shows don’t crossover quite like they used to anymore, which maybe an indication just how far The Simpsons has fallen in terms of creativity. Two, count ’em, two crossovers with the Fox animated series were announced at the 2013 San Diego Comic Con, one with Family Guy and one with Futurama. A 5-minute preview clip of the Griffins arrival in Springfield was unrolled at this past July’s Comic Con, and now we’re getting our first look at that time in the future when Bender comes back in time to go all Terminator on a certain spirited little scamp with spiked hair.

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.

The Interwebz is a great place for nerdy art and the like. A lot of the time it’s fuckin’ weird shit like Bert and Ernie comparing dildos and shit like that. 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.

I love this! Click the picture for a full-sized version. Ever wondered what the top ‘net browsers, Firefox, Opera, Internet Explorer, Chrome and Safari would look like as chicks in hawt dresses? Probably not. But here you have it, anyway! Credit goes to the very talented Moie “Eskimoie” Preisenberger.

What will you be doing tonight at 10pm, eastern time? Watching the premiere of new Futurama, right? You damn well better be. We nerds have worked too hard to stop our beloved animated program from disappearing, we can’t drop the ball now. Everyone should be watching tonight in the hopes we can top the numbers of their big return to television last year, which brought in 3 million viewers! Futurama currently has over 14 million fans on Facebook so if even half of those fans watch the not one, but two new episodes tonight Futurama will set records.

Tonight starts the second half of season six with 13 episodes, completing the full order of 26. Comedy Central has already, smartly, ordered another 26 episodes which will air in two chunks keeping us hopped up on Bender into 2013. Below we’ve got some special sneak peak clips of the upcoming episodes just in case you were considering skipping out. Which you weren’t, right? Good.

Let’s recap, new Futurama tonight, 10pm (e) on Comedy Central. There will not only one but two new episodes, so that’s a whole hour of new Futurama. You better be there, or it’s some terrible level of robot hell for you. Most likely with singing.

Starwars meets Futurama Mash-up!

This is totally epic. Move over Family Guy, your not the only one that can do Star Wars parodies! The pretty much nailed this one.

My two cents: I would totally love to see a what Family Guy did but with Futurama instead! It pretty much writes itself based on this amazing mash-up cartoon. I am officially counting the days till it happens….. I might be here for a while.

Life-Size Bender Built

BENDER MAIN

Ok, I’ll admit I’m a huge fan of life-size models. And no matter what the theme, you’ve got my full attention. So, let me have yours for a minute while I present to you a life-size Bender. You may know him from Futurama, or you may not. Either way, this is totally amazing and well worth your time.

Des Bromilow, a metal worker, was sitting on his front porch one day when he casually looked over to his junk piles. There, among the ruble, was a fire extinguisher and a propane cylinder that had taken the form of a somewhat familiar shape. Des had been inspired by Simon Jansen, another (Beer Brewing!) Bender creator, and although he knew he could not make a piece like Simon, he was going to try.

The tools Des used for making Bender were: Taig Lathe, angle grinders, CIG arc welder, files, rasps, hacksaws and drills. The materials he used were: salvaged fire extinguishers, 45Kg (100 lbs) propane cylinder, pipe, bolts, nuts, washers, automotive putty (“bog”), electrical conduit, Samboy chip packet, paints and cement.

The pictures of Bender’s transformation are after the jump…
