While the flux-capacitor hasn’t been perfected, and we can’t help you fix any past holiday humbuggery, maybe we can help you get this holiday season off to a good start.

For the next 12 days (Dec 1st-12th), the staff of Nerd Bastards will be listing a few of their favorite nerdy things. Gadgets, doohickeys, thingamabobs and more – all sorts of  items that have been Nerd tested and Bastard approved. Basically, stuff you want, things you need, and everything you can’t have.

We hope you’ll  find some unique and nerdtastic gifts among our selections, and that they make their way under your tree, Menorah or Kwanzaa bush.

Hit the jump for Sam Sakura’s list of Nerdful things. To see archive of this feature, click HERE.


When decorating your tree this year don’t forget the reason for the season, Cthulhu.  This adorable little guy can be yours for only $7.49. It’s a small price to pay to honor our mighty overlord. Available at NeatoShop.



I love this commercial.

It is simplistic in its parody, pulls no punches, and treats it as seriously as all those other commercials you see on television early Sunday morning for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. Instead, there is one little caveat.

Instead of the commercial selling you on The Book of Mormon, it’s the Necromonicon. Yes, THAT book that caused all the trouble for Ash in The Evil Dead movies really does exist!

I cannot put it better than the explanation provided by the creators of the video:

Do you want to be a nicer person? Are you looking for inspiration to do good things? Well keep looking. But if you’re into opening up terrifying vistas of reality then the Esoteric Order of the Old Ones and Cthulhu Cultists want to help.

Check out the video after the jump.


Have Your Gods Smell Like Cthulhu With Great Old Spice


Over the past few years, Old Spice has been busting out some entertaining commercials (especially the Terry Crew commercials) that ranges from the dream man to Bruce Campbell and then to a Centaur (see, it’s nerd related!).

Well, ladies, have you been upset with how your god smells? Do you wish he/she/it will have a scent of a god that have power and could unleash unthinkable evil within seconds? Then Cthulhu is here tell you why you should get them Great Old Spice Body Wash. Check the commercial out as it’s short and enjoyable and see why Old Spice is better than Axe, the no ass effect (well, that’s how it was for me when I used Axe).

Sonic Hat

Article by future NB writer, Mason Hartung.

There is a girl completing the dreams of thousands, or just mine. No, not Hannah Montana and her increasingly skimpy outfits *insert fantasy here*… But a 19 year old on deviant.com. What might this angels name be? Sugarcoatidli3z… I know, pretty lame. But regardless of this girl’s horrendous spelling, deep within her lies the key to eternal life. But really it’s the ability to crochet and knit the most badass hats and plush figures around. After the unveiling of her Pikachu mask, she has been swamped since. With new additions; a Cthulhu mask, Sonic the Hedgehog mask, and all the more creepy a Flapjack mask, from The Marvelous Misadventures of Flapjack. LOOK THAT SHIT UP. I have no idea how she has down time. Sugarcoatidli3z has also made quite a few other items. This includes an assortment of shoes, other unimpressive hats, and this crazy sweater thing. All in all though, I would marry this girl if she wore one of these at all times. So look her up on Deviantart.com to take a gander at what all she has to offer.
