Nerdist Channel

Today marks the much awaited arrival of Youtube’s all new channels. Taking a step in the direction towards providing original content, well, more original than all those ball-bustin’ videos, Youtube has partnered with a few our favorite geeks to bring you channels with all new programming. Both channels launching today, the Nerdist Channel from The Nerdist himself, Chris Hardwick and Geek & Sundry from the mind of Felicia Day, will feature programs aimed at the geek crowd.

So what have they got for us today? Awesome stuff, that’s what. First up from the Nerdist Channel is Chris Hardwick’s All Star Celebrity Bowling. In a bowling match for charity Team Nerdist: Chris Hardwick, Alex Albrecht (4Points), Klye Clark (Nerdterns), and Steve Agee (Indoor Kids) will square off againt Team Machinima:  Adam Kovic (Inside Gaming – Machinima), Khail Anonymous (ETC – Machinima), Bruce Greene (Wrecknology – Machinima), and Matt Dannevik (Inside Gaming – Machinima).

Okay, I don’t know about you but I kinda want to go bowling now. And not Wii Bowling, which I’m a champion at, but outside the house go to a lane real bowling, which I SUCK at. So there you go, Chris Hardwick’s All Star Bowling has inspired me to leave the house. What did you guys think?

Next is a real treat from Felicia Day’s Geek & Sunday, a new Guild music video! Yay! (Kermit Flail!) It”s a real nerd anthem and it’s already stuck in my head. In a good way.

Yeah, screw those people from high school. Now we’re the cool and trendy ones! “I’m the One That’s Cool” like, “Do You Wanna Date My Avatar” before it, was created by Jed Whedon and Felicia Day and I’m gonna bet it’ll be a real hit at the convention circuit this summer.

So what do you guys think of these new Youtube channels? Hooray for the future of web content, I say.  Expect new awesome stuff everyday so make sure you subscribe: Nerdist Channel – Geek & Sundry. Are there any other channels you’ll be checking out? Share ’em below.

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 nerdybits@nerdbastards.com.
