Song of Skyrim

The Legend of Zelda violin girl that brought a crooked little smile this NerdBastards face, then set his heart beating to the rhythm of the beautiful music she coaxed out of that magical violin, has taken on the Skyrim theme.

Lindsey Sterling (Zelda Violin girl) found that she needed a hand to complete this video and found it in the voice of Peter Hollens. Together they brought their combined musical talents to bear on the Skyrim theme using ONLY Peter’s voice and Lindsey’s violin to create 120 tracks to combine into this fantastic video.

Devin Graham also deserves a shout out for the cinematography and location shots that really take this video to a higher level than the usual YouTube posts.

This was our own arrangement of The main theme from Skyrim Elder Scrolls which was composed by Jeremy Soule. He is an amazing artist and it amazing to work with such fantastic music.

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.

Witness what might be the greatest costume…ever. For a dog anyway. Meet the Wampug.

Chubbs is owned by uber Star Wars fan, Star Wars Chick. She says,

Every year I make a new costume for my girl Chubbs and this year was no exception. This year she became the dreaded Hoth Wampug! Here she coming directly from her photoshoot and looking cute as can be!

I take  back everything I’v ever said about how dumb and pathetic animals look dressed in costumes. Because this is too awesome, too adorable, and guys, she’s a Wampug. Fuck, if they could collect the DNA of the fictional creature, the Wampa, and blend it with a pug’s, it would be the single greatest pet ever. (Laughing Squid)
