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: This beautiful Chi cosplay, based on an artbook design, comes from Ani-Mia. You can check more pics of this and more costumes on her Facebook page. You’re familiar with Chobits, right? The manga and anime about guy who falls in love with his cute, humanoid personal computer, Chi. Yup, a true nerd fantasy. (Fashionably Geek)
Some people fear the new line of “girl-friendly” LEGO bricks won’t offer the same creative freedom for kids as other sets. But I don’t believe that’s the case. Just look as this badass mech created by Mark “lego_nabii” Stafford made entirely out of a new LEGO Friends set. He also updated LEGO Friend Stephanie, giving her a custom painted flight suit and boots. Check out more photos at TDW: Geek.
Or your Zune, if you have a Zune, did anyone actually ever have a Zune?
Let’s face it, the mainstream music scene is a wasteland of terrible premanufactured pop bands meant to sell products more than perform music. As we go through this crazy think called life it is hard enough to find a decent soundtrack to it on the radio. Couple that with our unique tastes as nerd,s geeks, and freaks and sometimes you have to work harder than a cat trying to bury a turn on a marble floor to find something worth listening to. Where is our music? We are here to help.
Nerds rock, so do geeks and we’re going to prove it. The following ten acts cover the spread of Nerd Rock, Hip Hop and, music in general. Some you may know, some will be new to you. ALL should be enjoyed.
Everyone has their favorite tunes they jam to. Whether it be pop, rock, rap, hip-hop or country (me, I’m kind of a folk-rock nerd. I love me some banjo), but there is one type of music we can agree upon, nerdy tunes and parodies. The internet is ripe with parodies and original songs celebrating everything we hold dear; gaming, Star Wars, those hot chicks cosplaying sexy outfits forcing you to excuse yourself. We all know what you’re doing in that convention hall bathroom, you dirty boy.
Here’s a list of ten of the best nerdy music videos and parodies on the webz. Get ready to rock out with your Spock out!
“I Kissed A Nerd” by Damsels of Dorkington
Once you’ve gone nerd, you’ll never, umm…leave the herd? I’m terrible at rhyming. But this video from the Damsels of Dorkington is a fantastic epiphany of a song in which we learn, hey, nerdy guys (and gals) can be a hot date. Sometimes you want brain over brawn, and nerds have huge brains.
If ya haven’t been alive for the past week, the iPad (insert female product joke here) has been talked about ever since its announcement, rather it be positive things about it or negative. Just in case you don’t know what it is, the iPad is Apple’s newest tablet that it looks and is similar to an iPod Touch. You can view videos, listen to music, browse the internet, and have access to the App Store that has a crap ton of apps that is already available thanks to the iPhone and iPod Touch. Even with all that, the lack of a camera, flash, and multitasking has made some people not even care about the product, but maybe, they might change their mind. Parry Gripp released a song about how awesome iPads are by comparing them with Nachos in order to change peoples mind about the iPad
