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
ABOVE: Completely impractical for fighting crime, but if you’re just wanting to look good and maybe catch the eye of your own Nightwing, this Batgirl latex ensemble should do the trick. [FashionablyGeek]
Because apparently devoting hours upon hours to World of Warcraft online isn’t enough, now spend hours playing some of the longest board games all steeped in Word of Warcraft-iness. [Geekologie]
Did you miss your daily dose of top ten? Well so did we, and this week we give you the best type of Top Ten which is all about 90’s cartoons. Don’t worry these aren’t just any run of the mill cartoons. No, these are the ones that got brushed under the rug and didn’t really get the respect they deserve. ‘Cause even though some of today’s cartoons are slightly great, you gotta admit that a part of you yearn for that guilty pleasure that no one else got or appreciated. So take a seat, and reacquaint with some cartoons that will have you searching them on Google faster than you can read this paragraph.
Tiny Toon Adventures (1990)
We start off the Top Ten List with Tiny Toon Adventures. Released in 1990,this show was cut short in 1992 with the gained popularity of the Animanics. What made this show seemingly unappreciated was that this really brought back the otherworldliness of Looney Tunes Universe, and parodied current events of the 1990’s and Hollywood so that we could fall in love with this type of comedy again. Ultimately it kept the classic Looney spirit, while managing to adapt to the times, which would spearhead other comedies to come.
What’s up Bastards! After having some damn problems we are back and so is DVD Tuesday! Since Tuesday has just passed on, I decided to do a “lite” version and pretty much recommend what came out last week and this week as well.
In other words, I’m only going to list the stuff that you should at least check out. You can expect a full return of DVD Tuesday next week but for now, check after the jump to see what came out and see if there is something you want! (more…)
