Friday

Every week 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.

Every Monday 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 nerdybits@nerdbastards.com.

This week’s edition: Ghostbusters imagined in Pixar, first teaser poster for Brave, Soviet war memorial vandalized with super heroes, Hoth Tauntauns, Damian misses DickBatman, Han’s hangover, puppy plays Bowser, $10,000 Space Invaders watch, Star Wars lawn fertilizer, sexy N64 controller tattoo, epic Lego recreation of Sauron’s tower, Lens Flare: The Movie, the Bat has landed, Tardis observatory, Rebecca Black’s ‘Friday’ in 8-bit, Harley Quinn’s new costume on a man, Super Mario Bros. car, E.T. vs Predator, Darth Vader riding a pony cake, sappy nerd proposal, Contra’s henchmen’s strategy, Vulcan oven mitt, original 150 Pokemon according to my boyfriend, Lord of the Rigs, Yoda pasties, women react to Duke Nukem Forever, Dalek dress, Doctor Who flesh bits, ducks the original Transformers, all inclusive bathroom signs, 10 biggest flops illustrated, Weird Al’s ‘Perform this Way.’

 

See the whole Ghostbusters crew imagined as the stars of the next Pixar feature. Can this collaboration really happen? An animated feature would fare better than the long rumored Ghostbusters 3. For more check out artist, Fabrizio Fioretti. (GeekTyrant)

Ravenclaws (Friday Parody)

Well this one is here for you Harry potter fans. Rebecca Black strikes again and the parody of her song meme continues.

I fully expect this well-written parody from to get a few thousand views in the next couple days. 1. It’s Harry Potter. That magic malarkey is bigger than Jesus (yes, I pulled a Lennon) 2. Rebecca Black is hypnotoad. “ALL GLORY TO THE HYPNOTOAD”. 3. ‘s Legs and feet. If not for the song, jump to the 35 sec. mark (shown above), but grab a tissue.. you’ll need it to sop up the drool. *has fingers crossed* God, I really, really hope I didn’t just pull a pedo. Ginny, you’re 18, right?

Jason'sMachete

Next in line in my crazed obsession with movie weapon replica’s comes a bloody, junky piece worthy of a mass murderer… The machete of Jason Voorhies from the new Friday the 13th reboot. From the Lord of the Rings weapons to the Star Wars Lightsabres all the way to 300‘s full battle attire, the big people have found a way to make a little extra cash off these films.

This is the weapon of choice for our Hockey masked hero, from a straight shot up to the hilt, to a nice “Thunk” into a kid’s cranium. It was also the weapon used to decapitate his deranged mama. Described by BUDK with a great and immediate description “Each blade is aged to appear rusted and bloody“. Can we ask for anything more??? Actually we can….

I am making a hypothesis that we will get the full movie quality Nightmare On Elm Street glove of Freddy Krueger. To coincide with the reboot of the original, they gave the glove a little retooling and tweaking for the the new film, so selling a replica glove will be a fanboy’s dream…Something dangerous to do around Elm Street. All the gloves available now are handmade fanfare or plastic, even some with false edges, so i am making a NerdBastard’s gentleman’s bet.

But it all begins here with the release of the the Friday the 13th Machete. A great step in the right direction for horror fans as well as avid movie rep collectors (like myself).
