Television has seen its fair share of sci-fi and horror-centric shows recently – zombies and aliens and Ultramegachickens, oh my! – but cable TV will get a bit spookier soon, when Dark Horse Comics’ “Harrow County” creeps into the SyFy lineup. The network is developing a drama based on the comic by Cullen Bunn and Tyler Crook. (more…)
Hey, remember when Syfy showed science fiction? How many times have you heard that question asked amongst the nerderati or amongst your circle of nerdish friends? See, there was once this time that the Sci-Fi channel, later rebranded SyFy in a much maligned and mocked marketing campaign, but the somewhat radical respelling of “sci-fi” came with a shift to do less compelling and original programming, and do more cheap reality shows and ridiculously over-the-top “original” movies like Sharknado, Dinocroc Vs Supergator, et al.

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.

1. Captain America Statue Lamp by Westland Giftware
Luke started off with the replica Captain America shield I wanted s0 I looked around and found this little gem. That would look so good on my desk, providing much needed light and inspiration. There’s the good Captain, the Hulk, Thor, Spider-Man, the *#%-damned Batman, and the Man of Steel. They are priced from $54.99 to $59.99 and would make any fan boy light up (Get it . . . I’m punny.) with joy.
